Fantastic teacher. Aaron is great at identifying where you're at in your guitar journey and applying your own taste and preferences in music to the lessons and what you're learning. He also works a lot on ear training and connecting ear and mind to the instrument. If you're looking for someone who will help you tune your ear to the guitar, help you identify notes and scales, learn the songs you love, and all while learning theory and technique then Aaron is a great teacher for you.
Madeleine
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 daughter (9), son (7) and myself are all taking lessons and Cris Is able to adapt for all our learning needs and makes it fun along the way too.
Derek R.
I had my first lesson today. Cris is the real deal. He is an excellent guitar player and was able to coax what little skill and talent I possess into a formidable lesson early on. I'll be booking my Son along with myself and returning. We are blessed to have someone in the Rancho Bernardo/Rancho Penaquitos area like Cris!

Joe was a great teacher. I had a bit of beginner knowledge and was looking to take my playing to the next level. Joe was great at creating a practice routine that had the perfect blend of learning and fun. My playing has gotten noticeably better and I'm well on the way to reaching my goals. 5/5 would recommend.
Matt C.
Joe taught my 13 year old son.

On the lesson side, he brought a great mix of fundamentals (scales, etc.) and keeping my son really engaged by also teaching him tunes he wanted to learn.

On the logistics side, he was equally perfect: great communicator, never late, personable.

A nice guy, great player/teacher, and professional: I can't recommend him highly enough.

James is a very thoughtful and patient instructor. I took piano lessons many years ago as a child and always wanted to learn more. James was very reassuring and made me feel comfortable. I finally have the confidence to continue what I started many moons ago.

Thank you James! I was not that good with music growing up. Drums and guitar looks so complicated and I was interested. He is very patience. I don't have good rhythm with music! After getting 1 or 2 beats right i was excited! Practice and lessons make Perfect?? I hope so! "

Devin is an excellent and knowledgeable teacher! He taught me the basics of Ableton and the details of music production, recording audio/midi tracks, sound libraries, effects, etc. He guided me through the songwriting process, and made this complex software easier to navigate through and understand. I highly recommend Devin for anyone interested in enhancing their skills in music production. Thank you Devin for all your help!

Online Guitar Teacher

I've been playing guitar, composing multi-instrumental music, producing music, playing in professional and local bands, and have been an active studio session player for 17 years.
I have been teaching guitar for just as long, and helped many students understand break-through concepts and acquire skills that other teachers were unable to.
I have taught total and complete beginners to play their favorite song after 2 weeks, with 1 hour per day practice time. I taught my best friend and my brother to play guitar, both are now in professional touring bands.

About Peter

I have been composing and producing music for 20+ years. Since I got my first guitar at 13, I've been playing in bands, writing, recording & mixing songs.

Peter seems like at nice guy with a true passion for music. In a short amount of time, he was able to share a good place to start with in guitar. Thanks Peter!
George
I had a great time learning how to play guitar and am on my way to playing my favorite songs! Would highly recommend!!
Joseph
I learned everything I know about guitar from Peter, because of him I have an excellent understanding of not only how to play guitar, but how to structure and write music. This has led me to play live music and jam with musicians on a regular basis. He is an amazing guitar instructor, and can teach you whatever you want to learn — I highly recommend him.

"I've taken a couple of lessons from Trevor so far and they have been awesome. I've taken lessons from about 7 or 8 instructors in my lifetime and he is definitely one of, if not the best.
The thing that makes Trevor stand out to me is that he took the time to get to know what I wanted to learn and to figure out how I like to learn. He comes prepared to the lessons with material, answers any questions I have during the week by email and has worked with me to develop a specific education plan to meet my goals.
I suggest taking a trial lesson with this guy to see if you're on the same page. I am definitely not going anywhere else while I live in Austin."

Guitar Playing Tips | Eliminating Bad Habits & Reducing Injury

As far as guitar playing tips go, understanding proper form should be at the top of the list! Here, North Wales, PA guitar teacher Nathan D. shares the basics...   As a multi-instrumental musician, I am constantly checking my form to prevent strain or injury. Hours of improperly played guitar, piano, violin, and even clarinet can make one's fingers and elbows throb, and the impact of playing drums too hard with poor form can cause major injury to wrists all the way to your shoulders. …
