Private Guitar Teacher

Through my work with the M Gray Music Academy (Macy Gray) and my tenure at the Hollywood School of Rock as teacher and musical director, I have developed successful programs for students ranging in age from 5 years old and beyond. I have mentored numerous young musical groups in beneficial rehearsal techniques, live performance and basically all the things you need to know about being in a band that wants to be great!

As we explore the exciting world of music, guitars, drums and percussion, we will cover all aspects of music theory, music history and ear training through video, audio and text examples. For beginner guitar 101 students, we will start with basic chord shapes, scales and common rock and blues forms. I also like to incorporate songs that students want to learn so it's not just a bunch of boring exercises.

Course topics for guitar 101 (beginner to intermediate) include:
Scales, modes, chord shapes and positions, rock and blues forms, arpeggios and learning you ...

Very fun guy, with an extraordinary amount of knowledge, talent, and overall passion for music. I’m really looking forward to my future lessons.
Steve M.
I am really lucky to have found Al. I am just learning my instrument as an adult and have tried three different teachers (as well as self-managed lessons) before Al. Why I am enjoying my lessons with Al so much is because he brings energy to the session, he encourages questions, he's ready (even excited) to dig deeper into the why of what I'm learning. He challenges you to get the basics and get them right, but he's also willing to indulge in a student's curiosity and let me take the lesson where I want to do as well. All this means I am developing a lot faster than I did when I tried to learn on my own. I'd highly recommend giving Al a try.
David L.
My son enjoyed the first lesson! He is very excited about future lessons and can't wait to mature musically. Al is very easy to talk to and understands what motivates kids.

I've been teaching guitar for over four years. I've previously been a part of two bands during my formative years and recently have been a session guitar player for four upcoming indie rock, alternative, and R&B/Soul albums.
For children and beginners, I use the Mel Bay publication Children's Guitar Chord Book as well as Hal Leonard's Guitar Method series. I also apply basic music theory that includes learning the Circle of Fifths and basic reading of sheet music.

For intermediate guitar players, I utilize the Hal Leonard Guitar Method series to teach Power Chord Formation and Delivery, Fingerpicking, Pentatonic Scales, Reading Tabulature, and tackling some of classic rock and jazz's favorite tunes.

For guitar lessons at my studio, I leverage Guitar Pro to project and display tabs and play-alongs with ease. For in-home lessons, I use the software for select lessons as we begin song selection and play-alongs.

"If you are serious about learning this instrument, you couldn't find a better teacher.

Dennis is extraordinary in all ways: He knows about all there is to know about harmony; he can pinpoint and diagnose exactly what difficulty a student might be having and then explain how to overcome it; he is a talented composer and improvisor; and above all, in whatever genre he chooses to play, he is simply a beautiful musician."

"BEST GUITAR INSTRUCTOR I EVER HAD!!!!

I have had a handful of guitar instructors before I came to Kyle. I have been playing guitar for probably 6 years on and off. I had a hard time sticking with it because my other instructors bored me to death and I just couldn't learn the way they taught. With Kyle though it is totally different. I have been taking lessons from him for I think over a year now and have made tons of progress. Given I already knew basics, I relearned pretty fast, but Kyle has a unique way of teaching that just works great. He teaches everyone different and does whatever he can to keep his students excited about music. Kyle has a very chilled personality and is a fun guy to be around. I would very highly recommend Kyle to anyone who is trying to learn Guitar or bass guitar."

Other than being very knowledgeable and a fantastic guitar player, he was extremely patient and sensitive to my needs. He encouraged me at times when I didn't feel like playing or practicing. And most important -he is a super fun and cool guy !!!

Highly recommended."

"Best instructor I've ever had! I've been taking lesson with Joe for over 7 years. He has taught me all that I know about the guitar from improvisational blues to jazz and solos. I was very nervous when practicing my solos but he makes it very approachable and gets you over the fear. On top of that he began teaching me how to sing. He is a patient instructor who works with you and all your needs. Extremely knowledgable about music and music theory (so he could technically play any instrument by applying his knowledge of musical theory). I highly recommend to anyone who wants to learn the guitar for sure! But also if you are trying to sing and song write. He is great and explaining to the student very complex subjects and helping you understand it fully. Best teacher I've ever had and made me the musician I am today :)"

Exercises for Practicing Guitar Chords

There are several ways to master the technique of changing chords, so let’s look at a couple of exercises using basic guitar chords. The basic guitar chords are C, D, Dm, E, Em, F, G, A, and Am. Some instructors add C7, D7, E7, G7, A7 and B7. The F chord is always the most difficult for the beginning guitar player because you hold two strings down with one finger. Ideally, you want your basic guitar chords to sound clean and crisp – no muffled strings. Keep practicing the individual chord …
