Great Guitar Teacher

I'm really enjoying taking guitar lessons from Steven. He's easy going, fun to learn from and is not only teaching the mechanics of playing guitar but also the ear training and theory behind music in general and performance in particular.

Soraya B. San Francisco, CA

I have been teaching guitar for the past 10 years. I really enjoy teaching guitar and seeing my students learning and enjoying it too! I use a book that I really like but of course I add other materials when I think it is suitable for my student. Each student learns differently so I adapt to his learning style and to his needs.

About sadi soraya

About me, I have been playing the guitar for more than 20 years. I studied at the conservatory of Music in Paris. In San Francisco, I studied and played with many great jazz musicians and teachers. I have also studied Theory/ composition, electronic music and voice. I hold a degree in English literature and currently teaches also at the French American School in San Francisco. *** Lesson Details *** As a teacher I expect the best of you but I also know that we all learn differently and at a different path. As a beginner, you will learn to read and play at the same time by learning simple melodies and simple chords right away. As an intermediate/ advance, we will take it from where you stopped and will continue to move forward according to your needs and goals. I can also ...

Soraya is wonderful teacher especially with children. She is understanding and goes at their pace. Children are encouraged to learn and enjoy music. She makes it a fun environment for them to learn but is also a serious teacher. The perfect balance. I would highly recommend Soraya.

Firm gentleness

My son started to learn the guitar with Soraya 7 months ago. He is nine years old. He showed good skills, but not so much the desire to push himself.
Thanks to Soraya and her firm gentleness, he has experienced the need for exercise and repetition, the right to make mistakes
and the satisfaction of playing easily after all that effort .
He has learned a lot since he started and knows already how to play chords and melodies in the same tune.
I like the method that Soraya is using: it is focused on a good knowledge of the fret. It is progressive and allows right away to play catchy songs.
I would recommand her as a guitar teacher to anyone.
Thomas K. San Francisco, CA

Acoustic, electric, folk, blues, rock, indie, country, or anywhere in between. I've played them all at some point and picked up many tricks along the way that I give to you!

About Thomas

I've been teaching for over 10 years and I have never had more fun with it. I studied classical guitar for ten years earning a bachelor's and a master's degree in music. During my formal education I not only learned music theory, music history, ensemble playing, and composing, but more importantly I learned how to REALLY learn new things. This ability I try to pass on to my students.I love sharing the things I've learned from all of my various experiences whether it be from my classical guitar background or from one of my various pop/rock bands. I am a working musician and I still learn new things every time I go out to play. It could be classical music at weddings, Jazz at clubs, or Rock and Roll at rowdy venues. There's a lesson to be learned from each.   *** Lesson Details *** ...

Absolutely perfect!

Tom is truly a great teacher. He has tailored his approach to my unique needs-as an accomplished musician learning his 6th instrument, his teaching approach reminds me of things I ought to remember while playing any instrument, and music in general. And my lessons are tons of fun! He has a great knowledge of all the different approaches to the guitar and other stringed instruments which really fits in to what I am most interested in- how to get a particular sound for any given piece of music for the guitar. I'm extremely happy about having found tom to be my teacher.

Great teacher for my 7yr old!

Thomas is great with my 7-year old son. He has been extremely patient with him. He balances out the session with teaching and getting to know him at the same time. He does not rush through the lesson and makes him feel at ease with the guitar. He was only practicing with Thomas for a year and built enough courage and experience playing the guitar that he performed at his school's end-of-the-year talent show and did an amazing job thanks to Thomas! I was impressed!

Enjoyable lessons, gives you the chance to learn tips you wouldn't find online

Thomas is a friendly and perceptive teacher- he tailors his classes to suit the needs of individual students really well. He did a great job encouraging me to develop a feeling for the instrument and helped me understand errors in a logical way.

Kristina B. San Francisco, CA

I've been teaching guitar for about 7 years now ~ I focus on reading chord diagrams, tab, reading music, rhythms, how to play rhythm guitar & lead guitar, how to jam with other people, finger picking and using a pick, various strumming patterns, using a metronome, progressions, scales, various guitar tunings, how to change your strings & care for your guitar, and about the body of the guitar itself. I also make it a point to teach my students songs they want to play, that way they want to practice and enjoy what they're learning!!

GREAT TEACHER

My son who is 7 yrs old now loves his teacher, Ms. Kristina. I see my son enjoying every lesson with her. He is learning correct breathing exercises while doing vocalization. After, he sings a song that likes. Sometimes, it is difficult to teach children because of their moods but Ms. Kristina can make every lesson for my son fun and enriching. He's been doing great for a 7 yr old.

Highly recommend Judy!

Our daughters have been taking private guitar lessons with Judy for the past year. They both really enjoy working with Judy and have made great improvements in their skills.

It was really important for us to work towards a goal of having the kids perform at a community function. Judy worked with us to write the music of a traditional Indian song and helped the girls learn the chords and melody to be able to play together skillfully.

Judy has been very flexible with our home lesson timings, working around the kids' school and sports schedules. She knows the bands/artists they like and always brings them music that they would want to learn and play from these artists. She makes learning fun and has a great way of interacting with the kids.
