Private Classical Guitar Teacher

For beginning guitar players I emphasize good rhythmic playing as well as melodic passages. Note reading or Tablature are fine modalities depending on the needs of the student.

LisaJo is an incredible teacher. I was hoping to take in-person lessons, but due to the pandemic I (reluctantly) opted for online instead. All my doubts have been cast away... LisaJo's infectious enthusiasm leaps through the screen and her competencies as both a teacher and musician are evident through her ability to provide clear, creative instruction that translates directly into progress. I always look forward to my lessons - I'm learning lots but also having a great time with it :) I super recommend LisaJo if you're looking to learn violin!

LisaJo is so patient and she shows me lots of details I should pay attention to.
I highly recommend her to other students.

Best teacher ever!!!!! I went from knowing absolutely nothing about the violin to playing in the Manitowoc Symphony Orchestra after 2yrs of lessons. Through our lessons together Mrs. Lisa Jo taught me technique yes, but she also taught me so much more. She instilled in me a love for music and it’s many intricacies that I will cherish forever. Truly an amazing teacher

About Justin

Like most guitarists, I had always wanted to play the guitar as a little kid. Luckily, my parents finally caved to the request (ok ok, incessant begging) and I began my guitar journey at the age of 11. After now 20 years of playing and 12 years of teaching, I am excited to share my experience and th

Private Classical 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!

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

Rina is an organized instructor who perceives my son’s strengths/weaknesses and demonstrates real concern for him as a blossoming musician. She goes out of her way in unexpected ways such as helping him acquire a better instrument at a bargain price. Wow!
Linda Moore
A great first lesson even though my oboe didn’t work. I learned a lot of fingerings and about reed making. Great fun.
Eleni
We feel very fortunate to have Rina M. as our daughter’s music instructor, for oboe and guitar. Our daughter’s musical ability and knowledge has grown exponentially, and her music teacher at school has praised her understanding of music / music theory, most of which she learned since working with Mrs. Rina. We are so happy to have found TakeLessons, as this is how we were introduced to Mrs. Rina. She is very special to us, and we highly recommend her!

"Justin is an excellent teacher!! He is a master guitarist, always punctual, very courteous and gives 100% to my lesson. I am learning classical guitar and jazz guitar with him and I am delighted with the progress I've made in just a few months. I am playing beautiful songs and before his lessons I could not play any classical guitar songs at all. Justin tailors the lessons to help me learn the songs I am excited about learning to play. I most highly recommend him as a teacher for any style guitar. Amazingly he also teaches ukulele and mandolin too! He has a degree from Cal Poly in music and guitar and has over 20 years teaching experience. If you really want to learn how to play guitar easily and quickly, take lessons with him!"

"My main regret is that I did not start with him when I was much younger!

I have had the pleasure of lessons from Jesse Horner for two years. I started when I was 73 years old and never had any music training before, so I started from scratch. Jesse has been great in guiding me in the direction I seemed to want to go. With almost 40 years experience, I think Jesse has experience and knowledge of every aspect of music theory, guitars and guitar playing(also Ukuleles). He makes the lessons enjoyable and is very flexible and understanding in his teaching process. My main regret is that I did not start with him when I was much younger!

"Ahmad is an amazing guitar instructor. My daughter is 13 and was interested in playing the guitar. We purchased a guitar, talked to friends about instructors and searched Yelp. We initially took video lessons, but that did not cut it. Actually, it was a waste of time - my daughter needed one on one instruction. I spoke to a few guitar instructors, but chose Ahmad based on his background in guitar instruction and playing. Ahmad provided a good overview in the first lesson and then spent time with my daughter , teaching him the basic chords. In the course of 7 lessons, my daughter can play 21 chords and is also starting to play "Stairway to Heaven". Pretty amazing work in 7 lessons. Ahmad has provided my daughter with a curriculum and also provided us with tips on iPhone apps to use that allow my daughter to stay in rhythm and to tune his guitar. We will continue to have Ahmad teach my daughter guitar. Ahmad has definitely exceeded our expectations and I would highly recommend Ahmad as your next guitar instructor."

A Little Bit of Country: Easy Classic Country Songs for Guitarists

If you're a fan of classic country music, you've come to the right place. Here, guitar teacher Willy M. shares his favorite classic country songs for guitarists... I grew up in the late '70s and early '80s in the rural Midwest when "Hee-Haw," a country television program, was something that everyone knew about.

Should Classical Violinists Learn to Improvise?

A few weeks ago the Washington Post published an article about musician Hannah Hanh and her struggles with improvisation.  As a classical violinist, she hadn't had much training for spontaneity, naturally. The article points out improvisation as a technique that has fallen by the wayside for many performers these days. And it asks an interesting question: Can (and should) classical musicians learn to improvise? We've talked a lot about improvising on the guitar and drums, but where do classi …
