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 ...

Private Guitar Teacher

I love classical guitar, and I am passionate about not only helping students grow as musicians, but to grow in their passion for music as well.

I teach classical guitar and host an instructional YouTube channel. I received professional training at the University of Washington in Seattle, and I have taken lessons with the composer/guitarist Kevin Callahan.

I have taught students from age 4 to 80, and I know how to make learning enjoyable for the young and less young. I have learned how to be an encouraging and constructive instructor as I train students in how to play and practice.

Performance and instructional videos are available on my YouTube channel, which can be found by searching for my name.

Thank you!

About Brian

In addition to professional university and private teaching, I have benefitted from attending performances and masterclasses by many of the world's foremost classical guitarists, including Xuefei Yang, Jorge Caballero, Marcin Dylla and Fabio Zanon. I have a great deal of experience studying theor

Brian is a fantastic teacher and an amazing guitarist. He gears the lessons to the students needs and makes the lessons very enjoyable.
Brad
My daughter has been taking ukulele lessons from Brian for several years. First of all, her skills and confidence have soared. She enjoys playing and practicing and will often just start strumming and practicing when she has spare time.

Brian's patience, skill and enthusiasm are a huge reason for my daughter's ukulele success. He is also very flexible in scheduling classes and accommodating interruptions.

I cannot recommend Brian enough. Anyone needing ukulele or guitar instruction, would do well in considering him.
Sheila Dorame
My son had been taking lessons for about 4 years before he began working Brian. Our son was looking to learn more about music theory and exploring writing his own music. This is exactly what he received when he began working with Brian. Brian would send him home with weekly lessons and my son was excited to explore this Avenue of music theory and creating his own music. Brian unlocked our son’s creativity and gave him a much needed confidence boost. Brian was extremely flexible with our sons schedule which is a plus, with a teenager who has other activities. My son feels that Brian took his skills to the next level and opened his creativity window to explore other playing styles. Brian exudes patience, kindness, creativity, and a passion for teaching others his love for guitar. We are thankful for Brian’s dedication to our son, it’s such a joy when our son plays for us. Trust me, you can’t go wrong with Brian

My teaching philosophy is all about self-education: not only will I teach you how to play the guitar but I will also help you learn how to teach yourself. The work required to learn an instrument doesn't come from 30 to 60 minutes of lessons from a professional, it comes from the intensity of focus you spend playing the guitar throughout your time outside of lessons.

We will start with the end in mind; what is your goal? What music or songs do you want to learn? Then, together we will build a lesson plan to accomplish that goal. Throughout the lesson plan, along with playing your favorite songs, we will cover several aspects of being a musician: proper technique; musical interpretation and expression; music theory, which will include understanding notes, scales, chords, harmonic progressions, and analyzing music; communication when performing with other musicians; and building habits and techniques toward effective practicing.

The great thing about this process is it establishes ...

I have been teaching guitar professionally for 2 years. My approach to students is unique because I cater differently to each student. Because each person is different, I like to build my curriculum around each student's own individual interests. Coming from a performance background and from personal experience, it is extremely important that the student enjoy their lessons and performing their own music. With me, you can expect to learn music theory, sight-reading, guitar technique, and learning your favorite tunes!

About Jimmy

I am a professional soloist performer and a music teacher. I graduated from Cal Poly Pomona with a Bachelors in Music Performance in classical guitar. I have studied classical guitar since I was 14 years old. While in college, I also studied jazz guitar and arranging. I was a part of both classic

Really enjoy the lessons as I am always learning new concepts, but would like to see us maybe continue practicing the same song for a longer period of time as new songs get introduced almost every other lesson. Overall, I have a great experience every weekend and look forward to each session!

I've really enjoyed my lessons with James. Super nice guy, very knowledgeable, experienced and patient guitar teacher, fingerpicking master and all around good dude. I highly recommend him
Mike
James is a fantastic guitar teacher! I recommend him without any hesitation. If you want to learn from the best, start your lessons with James today. Whether you are a beginner or have more experience, James adapts to you and makes it fun and challenging.

I wasn’t sure if I was “ready” for a teacher and thought I should try to learn on my own and work up to having a teacher’s guidance. In hindsight, I wish I had just started with James right away. Don’t delay and just do it!
Greg H.
James was very friendly and patient. He is knowledgeable and talented at what he does. I really enjoyed my first lesson with James and I’m looking forward to the rest of the classes.

I approach the guitar as a creative tool of limitless possibilities, as an outlet not only to build confidence and character as a musician, but as a person! You do not have to be a virtuoso to create and enjoy beautiful music with the guitar. I strive to make music accessible to all and easy to understand.

Using my real-world experiences as a lifelong musician, a pragmatic teaching method, and over 15 years playing guitar, I will help you achieve your musical goals with custom tailored lessons that move at your pace.

My ultimate goal is to foster a passion for music and build the confidence of my students!

Collin helped me, as a beginner bass player, improve tremendously. Over the course of a year, he introduced me to new styles and techniques, while helping me build confidence to play with other musicians. Thanks, dude!
Kascidy
I had my first lesson with Collin as a beginner with no history in music and I learned (and retained) more than I was expecting myself to. He definitely knows his stuff but also had the ability to break it down and simplify it for me. It's important for me to not feel intimidated or slow while learning something brand new... I think that's why I enjoyed his lesson so much. He's patient, answered all of my questions along the way (and I had alot), was thorough, and hyped me up. I had a great experience. I'm definitely excited to keep learning from him!
Jackie
Collin is a very professional, patient, humorous, and beyond talented musician. 10/10 recommend to anyone learning to play guitar.

Billy Joel once said “I think music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everybody loves music.” Today, we encourage you to think about why you play the guitar.  Dreams of shredding on stage with Steve Vai aside, most musicians would cite the emotional connection to music as a big motivator. Guitar practice, after all, is like a form of meditation; think about it: there's a reason …
