As with any instrument or art, you have to start somewhere and put work into. There are no shortcuts. However, a good instructor can quickly recognize what you wish to learn, zone in on those areas, and most importantly allow you the desire to keep play more. This type of guidance is the “shortcut”. For myself, I have 18+ years playing electric/acoustic guitar I have also attended Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA playing with other musicians and learning from the best instructors.

Beginner level: we have to start with positioning of you fret and pick hand. You can change a bit of this up later. To start, I might hear you play something: one note, a melody, or a riff just to see where you’re at. Starting from scratch? That’s perfectly fine.

We will work on two aspects: working towards playing single note melodies and strumming/learning basic chords. I would encourage learning the latter as pretty much all contemporary songs can be accompanied by rhythm guitar. Changing ...

George was so patient with me. I knew absolutely nothing about playing guitar and I learned exactly what I needed. He gave me the confidence I needed to learn the guitar.George is an amazing guitar player and I feel fortunate to have him as my instructor. I loved my lesson and can't wait for the next.

Guitar is my first and primary instrument. I love it so much because it is one of the most diverse instruments in the world. With that being said I try to be not only a diverse player but musician in general. This past year I performed in GFA's (Guitar Foundation of America) competition with my guitar quartet and as a soloist.

Chris is the most understanding, invested, and patient guitar teacher I have ever had. I have been playing for 11 years, and about 6 years into that I began learning classical guitar from Chris. He was able to teach me anything from beginner level until I was ready for advanced techniques. Very responsible and the best experience I’ve had with any guitar teacher.
Ragav
Chris is a CHEAT - he took our money and just vanished - made up many excuses via canceling classes and ultimately stopped responding to texts. He broke both my kid's confidence and till now they are very sad!

Great first lesson with Chris !

Private Guitar Teacher

I've had some great guitar teachers in my life and I've learned a lot from them about music and playing the guitar. I will use what my teachers taught me to help you or your child learn how to play the guitar. I teach beginning to advanced players (except for classical guitar which I teach beginning to intermediate levels), kids and adults, and will work with you in a fun and challenging environment to make sure you are getting the most out of your investment. I am a very calm and friendly teacher who will make our lessons fun while also encouraging you to make progress. I will strive to keep you motivated to improve and will document your progress with the use of technology like audio recordings and video so you can see and hear your progress as well as learn from your mistakes. I like to work from guitar method books so we can establish specific and measurable goals, but I do respect and accommodate different learning styles. And, of course, we will work progressively on any songs ...
