Learn guitar or take your skills to the next level

Hi, I'm Lane Garner.  I’ve been teaching guitar lessons for over ten years and have experience with students of all ages and experience levels. I have Masters and Bachelors degrees in Jazz Studies from the University of North Texas. As a performer I have traveled all over the country and world playing various styles ranging from jazz, rock, and pop to classical, country, worship music, and more. I am currently filling my lesson studio here in Austin.

I offer private guitar lessons to students in Austin, TX wishing to learn guitar or develop their guitar and music skills beyond a beginner level. We will take your playing to the next level by studying music theory, technique, jazz and blues improvisation, gear and tone, reading music, playing styles, and more.

Whether you just started playing guitar or you’ve played for years there is always something new to learn about music. My primary goal as a teacher is to focus intently on specific aspects of each student's musicianship- technique, harmonic concepts, ear-training, theory, etc while making each lesson fun for the student. It is my goal to improve the student’s playing by the end of each and every lesson. I find it important to teach fundamentals of music as well as any additional material the student is interested in learning. In my 10+ years of teaching guitar I’ve worked with students of all levels and ages 5 to 65. I’ve taught total beginners, intermediate players, college music majors, and even working musicians.
