Chase R. Antioch, CA

I can teach students theory, harmony, ear training, improvisation, how to play their favorite songs, how to create their own music, and how to read both tablature and sheet music.

About Chase

I started playing guitar when I was in the 8th grade. At that time I was into punk, and as I got older I moved into listening to classic rock, then blues, then all sorts of jazz and jam bands, and now classical and sacred art. And my playing of the guitar has following the same trajectory: I played in the style I listened to. One common thread through all of this has been an, at first unconscious, but now fully conscious focus on the art of improvisation.

Improvisation is central in my own playing, and what I deliberately bring my students to do. And this is not something vainly individualistic. Franz Liszt, Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, Chopin; Coltrane, Miles; Ravi Shankar, Ali Akbar Khan; Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Clapton; SRV, Albert King, BB King: what do all of these musicians have ...

Chase has been a great teacher to my son who has recently shown an interest in the guitar. Chase is patient and knowledgeable. He makes it fun by letting my son pick songs he likes and wants to learn. I highly recommend Chase for anyone looking for a music instructor.

Great Choice with Chase R.

Hiring Chase to work with my daughter is one of the best decisions I've made. He has taught her new skills in guitar instruction and by doing has given her a level of confidence that empowers and motivates her. His level of dedication to her exceeds my expectation and as a result we will continue with additional lessons. Having an instructor that appreciates my daughters enthusiasm to learn more and that teaches techniques that further her scope as a guitar player has been a rewarding experience. Thank you Chase!

Wonderful teacher!

Sarah is a wonderful teacher! I started from zero and she has walked me through reading music, fretting and playing melodies, and chords. I have learned so much and our lessons have opened up a world of ukulele fun. Between lessons I'm able to continue practicing the exercises, and also try new songs on my own. Sarah is very patient and so encouraging! I always have fun during our lessons! We have our lessons via Skype, which has worked out very well.

About Greg

I started playing guitar in the 5th grade and in middle school began playing in rock groups. At the beginning of high school, I started teaching in some of the local music stores in the area. While wanting more from my playing, I started classical guitar lessons with an Andre Segovia student, Rani Cochran, and soon started lessons from Warren Nunes, a top jazz guitarist in the Bay Area. While continuing to take lessons in both types of music, I majored in Music at the local college. There I played in the jazz band and in guitar ensembles. After receiving my A.A. degree, I took classical guitar lessons with Larry Ferrara at the Conservatory of Music in San Francisco. At this point I transferred to San Jose State University and received a B.A. in guitar performance and a B.A. in ...
