Hello! My name is Allen and I've been playing guitar for 13 years, and teaching for the past 8. I've been performing and writing since the age of 16 with bands in many styles. I'm originally from Santa Maria, CA, and I obtained my knowledge of music theory, performance, and songwriting skills from taking private lessons in the central coast at a place called Coelho's Academy of Music. Our head instructor, Jerry Coelho, was a student of the late Howard Roberts and was one of the first graduating students to who helped to establish Guitar Institute of Technology (GIT), currently known as The Musicians Institute. After dedicating 4 years of private lessons under Jerry and his other top instructors, my hard work payed off and I was given the opportunity take students of my own. For the following two years, I've managed to consistently teach 40 students per week. I decided to move forward and take my musical experience with me to San Diego, where I currently teach, write, record, and perform my music with others who have similar goals and aspirations. I am playing with two bands at this moment. One called Science Fiction Jazz, and the other Foreign Film. These bands have given me the opportunity to perform with local and big named artists such as D.J. Artistic, Gary Wilson of Stones Throw Records, The Aristocrats, Terry Bozzio, Alan Holdsworth, and Tony Levin. As a teacher, I'm here to help you with where you want to be with guitar. Whether it's rock, pop, funk, hip hop, reggae, jazz, blues, indie, folk, and country, I can help you with the technical and theoretical side of things.

Born and raised in Santa Maria, CA, Aaron's first musical experiences were on a child size drum set given to him on his 5th Christmas. He later took piano lessons and played the alto saxophone before switching to the guitar at the age of 9 learning his first chords from his father. He played in several local bands in high school playing a range of musical styles from rock, blues, funk, and reggae. Aaron finally took music seriously in college and began taking lessons from Jerry Coelho, a member of the very first graduating class of the Guitar Institute of Technology in Hollywood, CA, and Dominic Castillo, a student of Coelho and a graduate of Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. After studying under these talented individuals, Aaron went on to pursue his education in music where he graduated from San Jose State University in 2004 with a BA in Music. After college, Aaron began work as a freelance musician and guitar teacher, teaching hundreds of students in the San Jose and Bakersfield, CA area. In July 2010 he relocated to San Diego, CA, where he teaches, freelances, and plays guitar in local funk/jazz/rock group Science Fiction Jazz and gypsy/kick stomp outfit Quel Bordel!

Over the course of my musical career, I have had the opportunity to learn from many musicians. From University Professors to Street Corner Musicians, I have gathered much knowledge on how to play music. Applying that knowledge to my guitar playing has opened up many doors of opportunity and has made my life very interesting. One of my talents is to take complicated ideas and convey them in easy to understand ideas for my students. I now wish to share all my knowledge and experiences with you to enjoy a life of music.
Students of mine have been able to create their own music to record and perform. Ensembles that I have directed have performed at many local venues. I have also invited students to join me at my performances to help them become more confident in their playing.
I have been teaching guitar professionally since 2001 and performing professionally since 1994.
