Connor Maxey Columbia Guitar.

Passionate about the language of music and the art of the guitar, I am Connor Maxey, a dedicated guitar instructor. My journey in music began at a very young age, and since I was 14, the guitar has been my constant companion.

My grandfather loved playing the 12-bar blues and passed down his musical knowledge to me so my musical journey has been a fusion of diverse influences. From Rush to Tool, I have cultivated a versatile approach to the guitar, embracing various styles to create a rich and engaging learning experience.

But for me, learning the guitar goes beyond mastering chords and scales; it's about unleashing your inner voice through music. My teaching philosophy is all about nurturing creativity. I encourage my students to view the guitar not just as an instrument but as an extension of their body and mind. Together, we'll uncover your own unique voice on the guitar.

Being a left-handed guitarist, I understand the challenges of connecting with this beautiful instrument. That's why I believe patience is the key to learning and growing, both for myself and my students.

Beyond the guitar, I'm constantly exploring the vast world of music in my home studio. I delve into different mediums like DAW systems, always striving to expand my horizons. Before my journey as a guitar instructor, I spent several years on stage as a painting instructor, which means I'm no stranger to performing in front of others.
