My guitar lessons are special I think because of the experience of a musician accumulated in 30 years, which made me understand what the guitar instrument means. I managed to understand how to teach someone to play the guitar to reach the level to play on a stage because this is the dream of everyone who starts learning a musical instrument. I try all the time after the student learns the basics of the guitar instrument to go to the musical genres he likes because he is the student must learn the songs he likes. my method is based 80% on practice, ie the use of the guitar instrument literally and only 20% on theory. At the beginning I use the theory part for the development of musical hearing (ear training).

About Sebastian

The most important thing for a guitar teacher is to be an active musician with stage experience and an instrumentalist who has practically gone through several musical genres. My 30 years of experience as a musician has given me this and that's why I know how to teach someone to learn to play the g

I have been working as a professional musician since 1987. In that time, I've played many roles alongside a wide range of established and emerging talent, from around the world, including band leader, accompanist, music producer, composer, arranger, co-writer, teacher, coach and mentor. Along the way, I have continued to pursue my passion for education, teaching private music lessons to amateurs, professionals and hobbyists from all walks of life.

Guitar is my main instrument, and I have been playing since I was 13 years old.

Lisa is a fantastic piano teacher. She is thorough yet patient, and makes learning fun. We needed a teacher who teaches how to count rhythm, not a teacher who just plays the song for the student to know what it sounds like. We found that in Lisa and are so happy! She is wonderful!
Emily S.
Lisa is great. She’s so patient and with someone like me who knows literally nothing about sewing, she walked me through the basics of literally just turning my machine on all the way to completing my first stitch. She even cheered when I cheered for myself ;) :D

Jon is AWESOME! His patient yet enthusiastic demeanor made my 9yr old look forward to her lessons, and really enjoy learning! I plan to continue with him as long as her interest holds!!!!
Natalie
We love what Jon has taught our son. Our son has progressed so much in the past couple of years, and still enjoys meeting with his teacher despite him being a teenager. When you find a good teacher, you do all you can to stay with them.
J.G. M.
At 52 years old, my wife treated to lessons for Christmas. I haven't played in 30 years. Although, I have had a few lessons with several different instructors back in my 20's, I never felt any direction. I always heard 'you got it. just keep playing'. Unfortunately, I stopped as nothing made sense.
I have learned a ton from Jon in only 5 lessons. Bits and pieces are all quickly coming together. I have a long way to go, but know more already than I ever have. Jon is fun, friendly, and has a great demeanor for teaching. If he has the patience to teach me, he's the right guy for you.

"My 17 year old son and I have been taking weekly in-home lessons with Chris for about 4 months now. Gotta say Chris is AWESOME. My son is picking it up super fast, he definitely has ADD - especially with music. Chris keeps right up, they are playing some Ed Sheeran, Eagles, Sam Hunt, Tyler Farr - all over the map and all both have a blast. I have been plugging along a little slower and Chris is very patient. We are working on some FGL, Parmalee, Logan Mize (Can't get away from a good time), Toby Kieth (Red Solo Cup), we even did a little Carol of the Bells around Christmas. I have a changing schedule and Chris is very accommodating - even up to last minute - which I really appreciate! IF you are looking for a flexible, dynamic, friendly, and fun instructor (his place / Skype/ your place) Chris is your man. Full Disclosure: I did not know Chris before I found him on TakeLessons. I am not receiving anything for this review. My son and I are simply big fans of Chris!"

"Several years ago I had Devin for a Jazz Guitar Ensemble and to this day I feel fortunate to have had it that way. Devin always had a keen insight when it came to students in my ensemble; he understood the importance of technique when it came to practical habits but taught so in a manner which consistently upheld the quality of performance. Above all, Devin had such patience and a down-to-Earth personality that I felt like I was learning from an older brother. Having always encouraged my musical pursuits and inspiring me with his own, I recommend a mentor and a friend."

What Age is Best to Start Learning Guitar?

  Is there a best age for learning guitar? We asked guitar teacher Linda L., who has taught young children, teens, adults, and seniors for her take... My opinion on the best age at which to start learning guitar has evolved over the years. I started teaching myself to play the guitar at the age of 14. The book that I used to teach myself featured photos of a 7-year-old girl demonstrating how each chord was to be played. The author of the book told the readers that he had this youn …
