More Than Just Guitar Lessons!

Can you imagine how awesome it would feel to...

  • Play your favorite songs on guitar?
  • Write and play your own original songs?
  • Learn to sing and play with confidence?
  • Perform for your friends, and... your fans?

Did you answer "YES" to any of the questions above?

I'm so happy you are here! I'm John Kyle - a music artist and guitar teacher. I teach beginning and intermediate guitar lessons in Portland, Maine. 

At age 14, I learned my first musical instrument: the electric bass guitar. Working out the bass lines of my favorite songs, and later playing in rhythm sections alongside drummers gave me a rock-solid grounding in the foundations of music.

I fell in love with music, and soon learned to play guitar and sing. I started writing songs on the guitar and performing them live. Now I've been playing and performing for over 25 years, and I want to help YOU become a great player, songwriter and performer. 

Music has blessed me throughout my life, and I love guiding people along the musical path. I especially enjoy helping beginners get beyond the initial learning curve that causes so many to give up on their dream.

I'll help you over that learning curve with a few of your favorite songs. Soon you'll be able to play these, and also to learn and even write new songs on your on your own! With the focus on having fun, the fundamentals are easy!

Whatever your age, style and goals, I'll customize your lessons for the path you want to follow. I can teach you:​

  • Acoustic guitar, electric guitar, and electric bass guitar
  • How to sing and play at the same time!
  • How to write and record your own original songs!
  • How to perform with confidence!
