Anne Marie Smart

— Guitar Instructor

Hello! My name is Anne-Marie- I am a guitarist, music instructor, performer, and lover of music.  I began my musical studies at age 7 and have over 15 years of performance experience. I began my teaching career at the age of 16, when I began teaching lessons at the Texas Guitar Company in Houston. I’ve since taught in several other studios, class room settings, schools, and home lesson environments. Currently I’m playing early jazz, gypsy jazz, and latin music most of the time; though I spent my teenage years obsessively delving into the secrets of the rock guitar masters, as well as pursuing other styles of playing. I continued my education at the University of Texas at Austin, where I graduated with honors in 2011.\r\n\r\nI approach teaching with enthusiasm and am happy to teach students of all ages and levels. I tailor my curriculum to fit the genre-goal and level of each unique student. However, I usually teach my students to read standard notation, in addition to guitar-tab, and address music theory from an applied perspective. I encourage creatively in my students and, above all, aim to instill a deep love of music.
