About Gabriel

Most beginners I’ve encountered have no idea what they want to play or even why. my suggestion is before coming to your teacher pinpoint the what and the why. Why did you want to learn guitar? Was it a song, or a really cool sounding riff? Did you see someone play live and feel like “I could do th

I want students to excel the fastest they can on guitar. Though I know it is important to let students learn at their own pace, I will never cease to challenge them through difficult pieces or exercises. I will develop plans and keep track of progress so that students and I can stay organized and ensure the learning is fluent. I will direct lessons based on what the student wants to learn most and what genres of music they are interested in. I also change the structure of lessons based on how the student learns. The basics I want students to learn from my lessons are basic chords, fretboard knowledge and music theory, finger-picking styles, pick and strumming techniques, left-hand techniques, and most importantly I want to teach students how to listen. I will train students ears through ear training exercises and songs. I firmly believe the better the student’s ears can get, the better the musician they can be. Besides just teaching songs, I want students to understand the theory, ...

My son and husband are taking lessons from William. I am so pleased that we have found a true musician., they seem to learn a lot in a few short lessons. My son starts to teach me guitar. His method makes the lesson easy for me to learn. His enthusiasm makes learning fun and 20 minutes lesson tolerable. I start to like my son more! William has changed my boy after only 2 lessons!

William is my first guitar teacher. As daunting as it can be to learn an instrument, he created a comfortable experience for me. He's incredibly talented and his love for music truly shows (which is inspiring). I initially started with the desire to learn jazz and William opened my eyes to explore other genres that integrate with jazz. Im excited to continue to learn and grow with music. I highly recommend anyone at any level to take lessons with William.

Thank you, William!

Still getting the hang of online lessons and don’t have much to compare it to but my son seems to enjoy it almost as much as live lessons.

I'm a believer that almost anyone can learn to play music well, and guitar is no exception. It's something which seems difficult at first, but has a series of specific steps (like any instrument) which take the mystery out of it, and get you playing in no time! I love seeing students improve on this instrument and seeing how much fun they have once they begin to play songs they love.

About Colin

I'm a life-long musician with a passion for the art and a love of teaching it. In 2012, I graduated from Sacramento State with a Bachelors in Music. Through my schooling and personal study, I have become a well-rounded musician able to teach many instruments effectively. Making music with others

Colin has been a fantastic teacher for my 12-year old son, who is learning his first instrument. Colin is kind, friendly, personable, and easy-going. He keeps the lessons fresh and fun. My son has made a very nice connection with Colin and really enjoys his lessons.
Jennifer
It's pretty terrifying to try a new instrument, especially one like the trumpet--which is so loud and obvious if you're wrong! Colin was supportive and warm and encouraging, and kept me at ease and willing to keep trying. He seems knowledgeable in alot of areas of music too, which is an added bonus. Highly recommend!
Cathy E.
Colin is personable, encouraging and warm. I enjoyed my first lesson with him and expect to have a good experience in the future.

John, Is a knowledgeable and friendly drum teacher that is eager to help you reach your drum performance goals. Being a guitar player first, my lessons with John have been at a sporadic beginner pace as I attempt to generate time for both worlds. That being said John has been very patient and accommodating, and I'm sure he will help me dial in my drum skills.

Tim is an amazing teacher! I recently started playing guitar and Tim has helped me improve with each lesson. He is kind, understanding, patient, and knowledgable. Tim teaches students of all levels. If you do well in your lesson, he might even treat you to a homemade Norwegian cat cookie:)

"I took lessons from Greg when I was much younger say 12-13 for a year or more. He taught me a lot and had me playing guitar really fast, I always tried to do what he asked and he never ever got frustrated if I did it wrong or couldn't play what we were learning right away correctly!. Also all of what he taught me stayed in my head all these years some how and I kinda progressively got better and better!. I'm pretty happy with my playing and a lot of others are to!. Greg has something special about his students and teaching them to play the guitar correctly no matter what or how long it takes, he cares about you as a student. You get out what you put in ,but be patient cause it also takes time. But you'll see the difference later down the road that Greg was the right teacher for learning to play and the theory behind the guitar.....I recommend him as a great guitar teacher!. I myself take lessons from him again at the age of 38 , I was able to find him on Facebook after all these years and we do lessons via Skype, I'm a very happy student, very happy!. And I thank Greg Gladman for that!."

"amazing teacher

jeff S. is an excellent guitar teacher, ive had him as a teacher for about a year maybe even longer and the only reason i stopped was because my financial situation took a downfall , but if i still had the money id be seeing him as much as i could . i would leave his class extremely happy knowing i could go home and finally play guitar if it werent for him id probably have hung up my baby(my guitar) a long time ago . he made things really easy to understand ,he had great patience for me when i couldnt get a lick/riff down instantly and he always broke things down to a level where my mind would just absorb the information. i highly reccommend him for anyone who wants to learn guitar in a fun and productive way"

How to Write a Song on Guitar Using Just 3 Chords

Even if you just started learning to play guitar,  you already have the tools to write your first song. Guitar teacher Aimee B. shares how to get started... You can write a song on guitar as early as after your first lesson or once you’ve learned a few basic chords. Whether you ultimately want to accompany your lead vocal, jam with others, or to be a wailing lead guitarist, you can, at anytime, write your own unique song. So where do you begin? How do you write a song? Here' …
