Aiden is a wonderful instructor. He taught my 8 year old son beginners guitar. He is a knowledgeable and skilled guitar player. He is patient, kind, and flexible. I am happy with the progress that my son has made with the lessons we've had so far. From knowing nothing at all, my son understands the basics of guitar playing and can play a tune comfortably. Thank you Aiden. We recommend him to those who have kids and are looking for a great instructor.

Aiden has been a great guitar teacher and has helped me improve considerably over my first few months with him. I've spent the last 20 years sort of knowing how to play guitar, but I was self taught and never really could figure out how to progress beyond a few chords. Aiden has provided me with the structure I need to get continually better. He has been especially attentive and helpful at correcting and improving my technique. He's always willing to work on what I find interesting or come up with something to guide me. I also really appreciate his laid-back teaching style.

Online Classical Guitar Teacher

Phil Lashley has been teaching students of all ages and styles since 1990. Phil welcomes students five-years-old and up to study with him. Phil's philosophy is not a "one size fits all" approach. Working with various types of students over the years, Mr. Lashley has learned that lessons must be tailored to fit a students' needs, desires and learning ability. As one of his students, Phil will be patient and kind while he is getting to know you and your learning style, firm, but not disparaging when he thinks that you should practice more. Beginning students will be taught the fundamentals of playing the guitar and basic musical concepts. Students will know exactly what to practice, the frequency and the duration. Phil has a Bachelor of Music Degree from Ball State University, and has taught at Illinois and Indiana Universities.

About Philip

Phil Lashley began his studies of the guitar at age 13. After just two-years of study, he auditioned and was accepted into the Shortridge School of Performing Arts. As a students there, he was introduced to the classical guitar, music theory, music history, sight singing and the keyboard. He perfo

Our son loves working with Phil! He has been accommodating, communicative, and engaging throughout our experience!
Katy
My son has taken guitar from Phil for 4 years - first, in-person, and now online during COVID. Phil has made the transition seamless, and has remained flexible to meet any needs we’ve had. He is a low-pressure, easy-going teacher, and always finds music that my son thinks is cool to work on. My son backs away from any activity where he feels pressured to compete, so Phil has met him where he is and lets him be in control of the pace. Phil’s style has ensured that guitar will be a lifelong pastime for my son!
Doug
I retired from 25 years in the Air Force and decided to take up my life-long ambition to play the guitar. Phil showed me rock, blues, classical, and fingerstyle techniques. If you want to play it, Phil can teach it. I thoroughly enjoyed our lessons every week.

Classical Guitar:
A member of the guitar family used in classical and flamengo music, but many popular artists play it for it's warm sound and ease of playing. It is an acoustical wooden guitar with strings made of nylon, rather than the metal strings used in acoustic and electric guitars. The traditional classical guitar has twelve frets clear of the body and is held on the left leg, so that the hand that plucks or strums the strings does so near the back of the sound hole. The modern steel string guitar, on the other hand, usually has fourteen frets clear of the body and is commonly played off the hip. I always start with the basics of finger techniques, learning notes and chords, how to read, theory and soloing. Right away the student will begin to play songs. This guitar can be used for most styles of guitar playing.

Karen is an incredibly skillful teacher. She is very passionate about music and it easy to be comfortable with her. She shares her training and knowledge very clearly. The vocal exercises seem very unique and holistic for body and voice health. She is very encouraging, caring, and soul-uplifting. I feel like I have a new connection with my voice and all that is connected to using it... as an instrument and the journey is only just starting. 45 minutes went by so fast. I am looking forward to my next lessons.

I thought I wanted to take viola lessons. Then I read her website and I realized that she might be able to help me get my voice back! I thought there was no hope ever. She has been extremely generous with her time, and I haven't seen her yet, but I'm not buying the viola I was planning on buying. I play cello, and piano still, but I am going to see if she can help me with my voice. She sounds incredible. I never dreamed that I could even have HOPE like this!

"I took classical guitar first then piano because I got my nails done. Luis is a very patient teacher and advances his lessons according to your pace. He not only encourages you to continue the classes, but pushes you to practice at home atleast 30 minutes to work out the fingering in guitar and the hand placements for piano. I've been with him for 4 months and planning to continue, he has always kept his home clean and his work space organized. Luis offers in Spanish and English and has been very patient with my frustration when I don't get things right."

"I feel it's safe to say that Jason would be a great teacher for anyone. I am a 78 yr old who has been self-teaching classical/fingerstyle for years but to really make progress I need instruction from a good teacher. I had my first lesson with Jason and am confident that he will prove to be the right instructor for me. He is extremely skilled, versatile, patient, and definitely personalizes his instruction for the student. I am more enthused about playing than I’ve been for years – and only after one lesson!!"

"I signed up to play guitar for "The Sound of Music" with Burbank Community Theater, and after I got the music I realized I was way over my head. So, I went to Mike hoping to get a lot of help. He's amazing. First, he sight-read all of my music, which is crazy. Then he was able to simplify it for me so I could play it and still make it sound good. If it wasn't for him I wouldn't have been able to do the show. And now that I've done the show successfully I have a whole new range of skills on the guitar and playing the songs I love is way easier.

I'm so grateful for Mike and everything he's taught me!"

"Professional and patient with kids!

Mr. Richard, as we call him, has been fantastic with my 7 year old son. His early recommendations maximized my son's guitar interaction and the visible (audible?) progress being made actively encourages practice at home.

Mr. Richard is able to give simplified homework that my son can understand. As opposed to "practice for 20 minutes per day", Mr. Richard was able to identify what works with my son's personality and established practice criteria that was much more effective."
