Hi, my name is Richard Ellis.


I teach guitar on Colorado’s front range, working with students of all ages and ability. My lessons are both fun and challenging but I tend to lean towards the fun side of it, teaching through playing songs you enjoy. We can play electric and acoustic fingerstyle guitar in whatever style of music you are interested in.

I’m originally from New Orleans, where I spent over 20 years playing rock, blues, funk, and jazz before moving to Colorado. I also studied music at the University of New Orleans and with the great Hank Mackie and Steve Masakowski.


I currently offer guitar lessons at the following locations:
