In addition to my work as an educator, I am a working musician and composer. I have just completed a full length musical titled Work, a short comedic film for NYU titled Goosey's Big Movie, and a video game for the iPhone, iPad and iPod titled Tin Man Can ...

I feel incredibly lucky to have found Brent. He puts a lot more time, energy and enthusiasm into his lessons than I ever would have expected. He is able to integrate theory and technical details into playing particular and diverse pieces, keeping things fun the whole time. He is a very skilled player as well as a talented and patient teacher, who would likely work well with players of any level or musical taste.

A singer songwriter musician friend of mine recommended Brent to us when I put out the word we were looking for a guitar teacher for our son, Mael. That was a year and a half ago and I feel very lucky to have found him because my son adores him and has made consistent progress under his skillful, patient and good humored instruction! My son and Brent have an easy and genuine rapport and it was clear to me from the beginning that this was going to be a good fit. (Basically Mael worships him). I am a little more objective but I also have nothing but positive things to say. He is both flexible and reliable and has a real affinity with kids, in addition to being a highly trained and talented musician. I recommend him wholeheartedly. --Diane Davis
Thomas K. San Francisco, CA

This is my primary instrument and one of my greatest passions. I hold a Masters Degree in classical guitar and I love to teach students to craft each note of a piece until it becomes more than just somebody playing guitar and becomes MUSIC.

About Thomas

I've been teaching for over 10 years and I have never had more fun with it. I studied classical guitar for ten years earning a bachelor's and a master's degree in music. During my formal education I not only learned music theory, music history, ensemble playing, and composing, but more importantly I learned how to REALLY learn new things. This ability I try to pass on to my students.I love sharing the things I've learned from all of my various experiences whether it be from my classical guitar background or from one of my various pop/rock bands. I am a working musician and I still learn new things every time I go out to play. It could be classical music at weddings, Jazz at clubs, or Rock and Roll at rowdy venues. There's a lesson to be learned from each.   *** Lesson Details *** ...

Thomas is an incredible instructor. I've only had 3 lessons so far and I already feel like I've improved my abilities so much. He not only has mastery of the instrument and of music, but best of all for students, he understands how to teach it well.

Absolutely perfect!

Tom is truly a great teacher. He has tailored his approach to my unique needs-as an accomplished musician learning his 6th instrument, his teaching approach reminds me of things I ought to remember while playing any instrument, and music in general. And my lessons are tons of fun! He has a great knowledge of all the different approaches to the guitar and other stringed instruments which really fits in to what I am most interested in- how to get a particular sound for any given piece of music for the guitar. I'm extremely happy about having found tom to be my teacher.

Great teacher for my 7yr old!

Thomas is great with my 7-year old son. He has been extremely patient with him. He balances out the session with teaching and getting to know him at the same time. He does not rush through the lesson and makes him feel at ease with the guitar. He was only practicing with Thomas for a year and built enough courage and experience playing the guitar that he performed at his school's end-of-the-year talent show and did an amazing job thanks to Thomas! I was impressed!

Richard M. San Francisco, CA

I teach beginning and intermediate classical guitar using the Fredrick Noad book method. Having played in Orchestra in Primary school gave me a proper feel for classical music. I focus on guiding the student in proper practice and techniques. The goals are usually to be able to perform classics such as Canon in D, and Bach Bourree.

About Richard

What you can expect from me is a clear, patient, and understanding teacher who is able to able to meet you where you are on your musical journey, and assist you to expand your knowledge and mastery of the instrument, usually having a lot of fun along the way. I am very comfortable even with teens who know what they want to learn, as well as absolute beginners and kids who need %100 guidance in there practice. I really enjoy students who come to me with some experience and want to learn songs that they love. I enjoy teaching music theory as well as reading, but do not require it. I am an expert at teaching classic Rock and funk, Jazz Standards, Blues and Pop. From the Chili ...

Music Theory · In studio
Verified Student
Richard demonstrates an exceptional knowledge of music theory given his diverse background with instruments. This competency is backed with a calm disposition and mindful approach to the student. He can freestyle the lesson by going on deep dives into subject material &/or techniques but always will pause to ensure the path is of mutual interest, which is very helpful for a student who lacks the big picture.

Learn to feel as well as read the music

I had a good foundation in reading music, keeping the beat, and playing steadily through mistakes. In three lessons, Richard has built on that foundation by teaching me to relax and feel the music as well as mechanically read it. I'm learning new chords and strum patterns while having more fun with my practicing.
