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 ...

I was pretty nervous for my first lesson as I had just started playing guitar about a month or two prior and was still getting the hang of strumming and singing at the same time. As soon as Sergio opened the door and we got to talking, I was immediately put at ease. He was very patient and made me feel super comfortable which was really important for me in an instructor. Since then, I've learned A TON and things that were difficult have become second nature. His knowledge of music theory (something I thought I'd never really understand) is amazing, and he did a really great job of imparting that knowledge onto me through my lessons. 10/10.
Jeremy Tomlinson
Sergio was very knowledgeable and picked up on my skill level right away and gave me some great background info and challenging exercises to work on to improve before my next lesson. He made everything super comfortable and his studio was the perfect place for a lesson.

First lesson with Sergio went great 🤟🏾 He is super cool and knowledgeable about what he is doing! Looking forward to working with him to reach my goals!

With each one of my students, I take into account how much time they are willing to practice, what genres interest them, and what learning style works best (for example, I've found that music theory makes things click faster for some people and saps all the enjoyment out of learning an instrument for others). I then come up with a structured lesson plan that is specifically catered to their needs.

If you have any other questions, feel free to contact me. Look forward to hearing from you soon!

I've been taking lessons with Jonah for 6 years now (4th-10th grade) and the experience has been amazing! With Jonah's help, I have learned so much about the guitar, both in technical aspects and in simply "jamming." Jonah is always very patient, kind, encouraging, and his passion for music very clearly shows in his teaching. Every lesson I take is very enjoyable, and I always come out of the lessons feeling like I have made good progress on whatever it was we were working on that week. Whether you wish to learn about complex music theory and lead guitar (like I am currently doing), or just want to learn how to play a few songs, Jonah is a perfect choice as a teacher. Additionally, Jonah is very communicative and flexible with timing. Whenever I need to cancel or reschedule a lesson for whatever reason, Jonah responds to my messages quickly and is almost always able to find another day that week for our lesson to take place on. 5 stars, fantastic teacher, I highly recommend Jonah!

Johah is very patient and flexible. He identifies and is willing to work on techniques, such as barre chords, in a way that finally helps me to stop the buzzing! I am looking forward to working with him.

My 15 year old son has been taking virtual guitar lessons with Jonah and has loved it. Jonah is a great teacher who really gets on my son’s level and connects. It’s a fun thing for him to do during this strange year.

I've worked with Lucas for a while now and he is an amazingly patient, intelligent, nurturing teacher. He explains things incredibly clear and breaks things down in a very efficient and positive manner. He also has an amazing ear and is so quick at transcribing music by hand, which is really helpful when you need a score on the spot. A very guy honest who can help steer any student in the right direction toward what they're looking to achieve. He's equally great with kids and adults!

Lucas is a dedicated and patient teacher who has helped me understand the skills needed in playing guitar. I enjoy all of the music he has given me to learn during our lessons.

Michael is an incredible teacher. My fiance has never played a musical instrument before in his life and I got him a few lessons for his birthday. At first, I wasn't sure how virtual music lessons would go, but Michael is by all accounts, an incredibly engaging, funny, and knowledgeable instructor. My fiance looks forward to his weekly lessons with Michael. In particular, he enjoys learning about the history of this incredible instrument alongside the actual music theory and practical aspects of learning a new instrument.

It has been truly incredible to witness my fiance transform in a few short weeks from someone scared of learning a new instrument to someone who is confident that he can learn a new skill provided he puts in the time and effort to practice and show up! Michael has given him the confidence and the inspiration to make amazing progress as a student.

I highly recommend Michael as an instructor. He really makes the virtual format work and he knows how to introduce beginner musicians to the joys of learning how to express yourself on an instrument.

"I have worked with Terry for 5 years and I have had nothing but a positive experience working with him. Terry always makes lesson fun while challenging me and pushing me to become a better musician. Working with Terry I have learned about music theory, music history, songwriting, and guitar performance. You will be had pressed to find a teacher who cares about their students as much as Terry does. He works to make you the best you can be and takes pride in the fact that he turns out great musicians. Terry made me the musician I am today and I am very thankful to have worked with such a wonderful teacher. Whether you are a serious musician that wants to take their playing to the next level or a learning a new instrument, you can not go wrong working with Terry."
