Aaron Cherry has taught Electric and Acoustic guitar for almost 20 years. He started with piano lessons as a child and has continued growing musically on several instruments including drums, bass, and piano. He began teaching guitar privately in college while studying jazz at University of North Carolina Wilmington with master guitarist Bob Russell, as well as in Boston working with colleagues at Berklee College of Music. While predominantly a rock guitarist, Aaron brings elements of jazz, blues, R&B, soul, latin, reggae, progressive, metal, folk, and bluegrass music to both his performing and teaching. Currently Aaron is working on a startup project producing a solo album in his home studio.
Aaron employs a practical and pragmatic teaching style designed to give students tools to begin making music. Building good habits over successive lessons allows the student to overcome their weaknesses and make progress toward their musical goals. Lessons with Aaron will include proper technique and positioning, chords and chord progressions, music theory and composition, developing speed and accuracy, and how to get the most from your rig. Regardless of the student’s experience, Aaron can customize a program designed to take the next step and welcomes the opportunity to work with all ages and skill levels.
