Deanne Newkirk

I love teaching guitar – and I’m really looking forward to teaching you! I began learning the guitar when I was 9 years old. Guitar has always been an important part of my life whether performing or playing for my own enjoyment. My uncles were my original inspiration. They played and sang together at events far and wide. They had an amazing blend of guitars and voices and their music really connected with people, including me….that’s how I got hooked!

I have been working with Deanne to learn the Guitar basics. She has been very professional, patient and supportive in teaching the subject. The guitar instruction is very clear and could be understood by all ages. I recommend her coaching to all of you!


Every module I am again blown away by how SMART Deanne is. She is a great guitarist, but she may be an even greater teacher. She thoughtfully leads through the necessary basics, setting up success, before introducing a song to practice that perfectly personifies the lesson being worked on. If you think all guitar courses are equal, try The Guitar Teach - I bet you’ll be as pleasantly surprised as me!


I really liked the songs Deanne picked and liked learning the different styles/techniques (strumming and tablature).


As a parent, I would say that Deanne sincerely cared about Kai and Luke’s enjoyment and progress in playing guitar. Also, flexible with learning speed based on time we could commit. We really appreciated the time Deanne took with sending feedback by email and videos to practice along with. Deanne went above and beyond! All much appreciated!!


I had wanted to learn to play the guitar for years and specifically from Deanne, though she didn't know this! .....I've decided to throw my fears and excuses aside and start my guitar playing journey. I thoroughly enjoy lessons with Deanne, not only am I learning to play guitar and sounding GREAT, but there is also a way Deanne teaches...the lessons are taught with joy and as well. Deanne is a warm and heart centered person.
