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 ...

Do you want to learn how to play your favorite songs? How about write your own songs? How about learn to be a member of a band that can write, perform and record quality tunes? If so, I'm your man.
I've been playing the guitar for 18 years, and also play bass guitar, double bass, and mandocello. As such I have a solid foundation of theory, technique and ability that I can transfer to you, from which you can take off.
I look forward to working with you!

Aaron is a wealth of music theory knowledge. I am an intermediate guitar player with a background in music, and Aaron tapped right into my level and ran with a challenging but approachable lesson tailored to me. The best part is that I know there's so much more he can offer! I look forward to a long, productive, fun, and beautiful mentorship with Aaron! L
Dominick
My lessons with Arron have been extremely beneficial and I recommend him to anyone that is trying to learn or get better at playing guitar. I have been playing guitar for a while now and what I’ve learned the most from Aaron is how to slow down and practice efficiently. He has taught me many different tools for practicing musical scales and has also been able to give me the “why” to all his methods. I’ve noticed so much progress in my playing and I’m so thankful.

My first lesson with Zach was great! 5 stars. He asked the right questions as to what aI am looking to do. And we quickly came up with a lesson plan that with the right amount of work in my part will get me headed in the right direction.

"I have always wanted to learn how to play guitar but just never really knew where to begin. My wife surprised me with lessons for fathers day. I am currently approaching one year playing thanks to meeting Steve and taking weekly lessons with him. Steve is a wonderful person and the absolute best person to learn from. He is extremely patient and and passionately inspiring. He really cares about your growth in learning a new instrument and goes beyond the normal preparation to assure you get the most success out of your time and works closely with you on what you personally would like to achieve with your learnings. I would highly recommend Steve for anyone, at any age, that is either looking to extend their craft or those like me who is ready to learn something new and enjoyable in their life."

"I started taking lessons with Ahmad over 5 years ago as a wee beginner. Looking back at where I started, I'm surprised at how much progress I have made and have learned more than I ever expected to.

It is obvious from the start that Ahmad is not only an phenomenal guitar player, but also, and more importantly, displays a strong passion and dedication for teaching. Each lesson is carefully designed and structured to build off of techniques previously learned and Ahmad has a knack for making even difficult concepts easy to digest. He imparts simple tips and tricks, mined from years of experience, that have helped me master techniques and avoid tedious memorization exercises which would have made the learning process agonizingly painful. Having one-on-one lessons also allows Ahmad to give me the personal attention needed to provide feedback, positive and negative, and nip bad habits in the bud before they become ingrained. Additionally, each lesson comes with handouts which are handy to practice with and use as a reference (I have 400+ pages of material so it's important to keep it all organized).

Ahmad has a diverse set of musical tastes and a secondary benefit of taking lessons with him is that he's exposed me to a plethora of great music that I would not otherwise have discovered on my own. Whether you're a beginner, intermediate, advanced, or think you can rival Joe Satriani, there's something for you to learn from Ahmad. Also, I've found that lessons are very motivating in terms of encouraging me to keep practice because, yes, I do get lazy sometimes. With Ahmad, if you put in the time and effort, you will be rewarded greatly with the freedom to be as creative as your heart desires and you will have more fun playing the guitar than a mouse running loose in a cheese factory.

Oh, and Ahmad's a super cool guy too."

"Infectious Enthusiasm

What makes Ryan a terrific instructor is more than just his extensive guitar knowledge. It's more than the personalized curriculum and patient approach he offers to each student. It's even more than his great sense of humor and the encouragement he brings to each lesson. What makes Ryan a truly great instructor becomes apparent within moments of meeting him: this dude LOVES the guitar. Simple as it sounds, the sheer enthusiasm he has for the instrument is infectious and carries over into his lessons in such a way that you can't help but take it home with you. Learning a new instrument can be a daunting and difficult journey, but you will not find an instructor more willing to guide you through it than Ryan."

"Ahmad is a fantastic teacher, and not just for beginners but for experienced players as well!
I've been playing guitar for about 20 years, but haven't taken any formal lessons in the past 15 of those. I felt like I was in a rut with my playing so I started taking lessons with Ahmad a few months ago. He was able to immediately help me improve my technique and help me correct some inefficiencies that I didn't even notice I was doing. The word "inefficiencies" in the last sentence was chosen very deliberately because Ahmad has a great way of showing that there are multiple ways to play the instrument and not one specific "right" and "wrong" way.
I feel like I've made more progress in the last 4 months than I had in years."

"Andrew has been teaching my son music lessons since July 2013, and we have been very pleased. He is always on time, communicates well, and is able to be flexible when our schedule is not 100% predictable.

My son was 7 when he began the guitar and after just over a year, we decided that it would be best to switch to the piano. Practicing the guitar was always a struggle. Andrew took this change from guitar to piano in stride and has enough piano skills to help my son learn all of the things that are important in music: reading, learning rhythm, etc. I have seen him teach younger students and I appreciate that he can adapt his teaching approach to match the age, ability and interest of the learner.

My son seems intrinsically motivated to learn the piano and practice. But even as he plodded away strumming his electric guitar unenthusiastically, Andrew always found a way to engage him. One of the more memorable techniques Andrew uses is to write out the music for the songs my son wants to learn. At that moment, it was a Pokémon song. I thought it was rather genius. Even though my son barely practiced, he wanted to learn that song.

By means of the piano, Andrew is teaching my son music, not just how to play songs on the piano. I am amazed at the progress he has made from not being able to reproduce rhythms to now being able to do so.

It is clear that Andrew enjoys teaching. He is personable and polite. I have referred him to family and friends and would not hesitate to hire him for drums, guitar and beginning piano."

The Black Keys' drummer Patrick Carney told Rolling Stone magazine recently that Nickelback is killing off the rock genre.  Agree?  Disagree?
