She quickly assessed my skill level and adjusted my lessons to build on what I already knew and in a few short weeks has helped me make significant progress. She's very patient, observant, and extremely helpful with all types of students--from beginner to advanced. I look forward each week to my lessons with Kimberly.

I have been taking lessons from Kimberly for the last few weeks. As a comparison, I have taken lessons a number of times in the distant past. Kimberly is by far the very best guitar instructor I have had. Kimberly is extremely knowledgeable, highly skilled and very personable.

About Byron

Music and music teaching is my first love and passion in life. (Feel free to check out my video and music!) To be able to study and play the guitar for the last 11 years has been an immense blessing! I am a guitar teacher with a degree in music from Biola University, La Mirada. I have been teaching lessons privately almost 9 years now. I am trained in various styles of guitar music including classical, jazz, pop, rock, blues, and finger-style on both acoustic and electric guitars. My musical journey began in the 6th grade when my parents purchased a nylon string classical guitar for me. Throughout my high school and college years I participated in contemporary rock ensembles for corporate worship at my church and other churches. This included leading and singing as well. While enrolled at ...

Byron is an amazing teacher! Thanks to Byron, our son, who is autistic-high functioning, is learning far more than how to play the guitar. He is learning to sit in a chair for a half an hour, is learning to focus on notes and strings, and is learning to love music! It’s an amazing sight to see! We are grateful that our son, and others with special needs, can also learn to play the guitar. We appreciate Byron’s patience and fun approach. Teachers with his character and abilities are hard to find. Byron is a true blessing and gifted teacher. We highly recommend him to everyone!

Great guitar lessons

Mr. Byron has been the perfect match for both my boys! He began teaching my 10 year old a year ago. Before, Mr. Byron, my son had been through 2 other guitar teachers but neither one could get him to play. Mr. Byron was able to strike my son's interest by tapping into songs he enjoyed listening to and later bringing them to life on the guitar. As a result of Mr. Byron's great teachings, my 6 year old son was inspired to begin ukulele lessons with him. Mr. Byron is a great teacher! His passion and love for music will definitely inspire yet challange his students to more than meet their goals!

Excellent with kids!

Our son has had Byron for 2 1/2 years now and really enjoys having him as his guitar teacher. He always gives us feedback as to how he is doing and really engages our son during his lessons. We highly recommend him as a teacher in this capacity.

Joseph C. Upland, CA

As a guitarist, I have played with many ensembles. I have earned a degree in music theory with an emphasis on guitar performance from San Juan College in New Mexico. In addition to that, I have performed professionally for over 5 years.

Students of mine can expect many things from me as their instructor. The first and foremost is that I will do my absolute best to make learning the instrument enjoyable and challenging. They can expect to gain a solid foundation on which to build their personal technique and style. They can expect to be shown how music theory is used to craft the music that they are playing and how these concepts can benefit them as a musician. Finally, they can expect to set goals for themselves that we can accomplish as a team.
