I'd like to sing high praises for my guitar instructor Matthew H. I'm an older player with a life long fantasy of being a rock star. Well, with Matthews patience and teaching abilities he has me on my way!

I've been taking lessons for about 4-5 months and have been improving with each lesson. The combination of learning music theory along with technique has allowed me to progress to being able to play some of my favorite musicians riffs. Along way to go but it's really fun learning with Matthew.

My son has been taking lessons from Matt for almost 2 years and we could not be happier with his progress. Matt provides the personal attention that each of his students needs for growth in guitar skills and also music theory. I also appreciate his flexibility and willingness to accommodate our hectic schedule.

I have been a student for Mathew for past few months and I enjoy his classes. In his classes, I've been learning songs, guitar techniques, music theory, and even a little about the music business from his experiences. He has a great in-home studio which is perfect for guitar lessons and I've have learned a lot from him and I look forward to his classes each week. In my opinion, he is the the best type of person to learn from because of his dedication and his ability to teach anybody at any level.

Getting the right sound and technique from the start. Focusing on developing your right and left hand to play with control. Most of all the realization of a piece of music.

About Todd

I have a Bachelors of Music in Classical Guitar Performance from Cal State Northridge. I come from a background of instrumental guitar where rock, metal, classical and jazz are my specialties. I believe that music should take you on a journey and that it begins with your first lesson and your first note.

Todd has been teaching my 14 year old son for several months now. I have to say he has kept my son's interest in the instrument and tailoring teaching to his interest perfectly. Todd is very pleasant and accommodating to my family's scheduling needs. I would recommend him highly!

My daughter has been taking lessons from Tod since last December. He is patient and encouraging with her and she enjoys her lessons. He lets her pick the music she wants to play while ensuring she is learning the fundamentals of reading music.

Todd is an excellent Guitar Teacher.

My daughter has been taking Guitar lessons with Todd since last month. She is very happy with the lessons. Todd lets her chose what she wants to play and at the same time he is developing her overall and basic skills in playing the instrument, in a very encouraging and delightful way. She is certainly learning a lot, under Todd's able guidance.

My early days of learning guitar involved classical pieces by Sor, Tarrega and later in college I studied pieces by Villa Lobos and more. I love classical guitar and am well equipped to teach all beginning and some intermediate students.

About Scott

BIO

My passion for teaching comes from a very firm belief that ANYONE can play and understand music with practice and patience. I love helping beginner and intermediate students reach their personal music goals in a relaxed, fun environment.

I started playing guitar when I was ten years old, eventually graduating with a B.A. in Music Composition and going on to start a successful rock band, writing most of the material for the band and even co-writing a song for an internationally successful movie.

I've played more venues than I can remember in many different styles, from classical guitar weddings to blues at the grand opening of a brewery to a completely improvised set with people I've just met. I can do it all and I'd love to help you do it, too!

Classical requires a lot of patience. Here we will learn how to read music, finger picking, and theory.

About Jonny

It’s not the stage, it’s not the glory: it’s the pure joy of playing music. We often put musicians on a pedestal: “this guy’s better than I am, I’ll never be that good.” Here’s a quote from one of the best guitarist of our time:

“I dedicated all the time I had to it. The 10 hour workout was just what I put in the magazine at the time, but for me it was every waking moment.” ~ Steve Vai‎

To Steve, it was the music that gave him great joy. Simply put, he played because he loved it. This is my goal as a teacher: to show people that music takes time, it takes determination, it takes passion, and most importantly, it’s really fun! It can be an expression of who you are.

“The beautiful thing about learning is ...

This is where I sort of apologize in advance for being somewhat dogmatic. In my own experience (and humble opinion), learning the classical guitar should be your first effort. The reasons are many. The main one being that the "guitar", as it's known in the contemporary west, begun its evolution from a classical birth.

What is more, the guitar was organized and structured in playing classical music. Francisco Tárrega would be the person credited for this. Indeed, Tarrega structured the guitar into a legitimate language and craft. This century old organizational craft has given birth to such notables as: Andrés Segovia, Moreno Torroba, Manuel Ponce, Luiz Bonfá, and Leo Brouwer. Certainly the list goes on....

When learning the classical guitar, as ones first introduction to learning music, it provides many key intensives.

First, it provides a written educational structure/form. A structure/form that's unknown to any style or genres of the guitar.

Second, ...

About Kay

Indeed as a kid, I was simply blown away as to how music showcases almost endless stimulating possibilities. This in terms of structure, different genres, discordance, harmony, tamber, melody and rhythm. For it would be these very profound attributes noticed back then that sustain me today.

As a young aspiring musician, "universal" would be last words out of an poor observers mouth. This especially when describing my several attempts in playing speed metal on my sisters viola. It would be these sort of behaviors that summoned my father to buy his resourceful son a electric guitar and amp. The rest was history. A history plagued with disturbing reverberations along my parents bedroom walls and garage doors. This while placing a heavy burden on their pocket books in ...
