Soraya B.

San Francisco, CA

I have been teaching guitar for the past 10 years. I really enjoy teaching guitar and seeing my students learning and enjoying it too! I use a book that I really like but of course I add other materials when I think it is suitable for my student. Each student learns differently so I adapt to his learning style and to his needs.

About sadi soraya

About me, I have been playing the guitar for more than 20 years. I studied at the conservatory of Music in Paris. In San Francisco, I studied and played with many great jazz musicians and teachers. I have also studied Theory/ composition, electronic music and voice. I hold a degree in English literature and currently teaches also at the French American School in San Francisco. *** Lesson Details *** As a teacher I expect the best of you but I also know that we all learn differently and at a different path. As a beginner, you will learn to read and play at the same time by learning simple melodies and simple chords right away. As an intermediate/ advance, we will take it from where you stopped and will continue to move forward according to your needs and goals. I can also ...

Soraya is wonderful teacher especially with children. She is understanding and goes at their pace. Children are encouraged to learn and enjoy music. She makes it a fun environment for them to learn but is also a serious teacher. The perfect balance. I would highly recommend Soraya.

Firm gentleness

My son started to learn the guitar with Soraya 7 months ago. He is nine years old. He showed good skills, but not so much the desire to push himself.
Thanks to Soraya and her firm gentleness, he has experienced the need for exercise and repetition, the right to make mistakes
and the satisfaction of playing easily after all that effort .
He has learned a lot since he started and knows already how to play chords and melodies in the same tune.
I like the method that Soraya is using: it is focused on a good knowledge of the fret. It is progressive and allows right away to play catchy songs.
I would recommand her as a guitar teacher to anyone.

Thomas K.

San Francisco, CA

Acoustic, electric, folk, blues, rock, indie, country, or anywhere in between. I've played them all at some point and picked up many tricks along the way that I give to you!

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!

Thomas H.

San Francisco, CA

My goal is to teach you how to completely understand the guitar from top to bottom. I`ve been playing the guitar for over 42 years and love to I play jazz, blues, rock & classical.

About Thomas

Hello! My approach to guitar instruction is to teach the student to find where every note, chord, and scale is located anywhere on the neck of the guitar. I`ll teach the student how to build chords and understand exactly what you are playing by reading music and charts, and learning the proper chord theory. I believe a strong student can play solo, improvise, read and play beautiful guitar pieces. I'll teach you how to play jazz, cut up the blues, rock out, play rhythm and lead, while playing chord solos, putting melodies over chords, or study simple classical pieces. I`m a well mannered, soft spoken, easy going mature gentleman. I`ve taught lessons over the years to students from all walks of life. I enjoy teaching and watching people develop their skills and find enjoyment out of ...

Tom and I have had 2 sessions together now and I feel great about how they have gone. I have taken a few guitar lessons in the past with another instructor and he just does not compair to Tom's style of instruction. What I mean by that is Tom was able to assess exactly where my skill level, understanding, and rate of retension rather quickly apposed to waisting my time we were able to start exactly where I needed to. From there, I was astonished with how much knowledge Tom has of music theory and his skill of explaining it each step of the way. I'm excited to continue my lesssons with him! I already feel I'm going to be exonentially better in no time at all :)

Tom is a practical teacher, and understands what you need to work on. I've learned to put a lot of my Jazz Theory immediately into practice. Since working with Tom he's taught me to:

Play from lead sheets
Play turnarounds
Find harmonic balance with closed chords in the right playing range
Play in a variety of styles including pop, blues, swing, bossa nova, and bop
Improvise on scales
Sing and play at the same time

And most of all, he guided me into the huge world of jazz music. Making sure that you're learning the right stuff out of the tons of information out there is crucial--and Tom helped me find that. Also, his patience for my learning speed couldn't be more appreciated. Thanks Tom!

Tom is a wealth of information. His knowledge of Jazz and blues chords is endless. Its really a matter of how far do you want to take it?
