She was very kind and welcoming. She is flexible about what my goals are and happy to help achieve my goals. She gave me some brand new warm ups that I never heard of that seem to really help strengthen my voice. I look forward to more lessons!

Private Guitar Teacher

My name is Tony and I've been teaching guitar over 25 years! I love teaching music to people of all walks of life and all ages. As a musician, I've been in rock bands, played pop music, blues, been in tribute bands, original music, and cover bands that have played all styles. I've had to teach kids Disney music and steel workers Sothern Rock...it doesn't matter to me. As a guitar teacher, what is important to me is what YOU want to learn. We can learn: scales, soloing, harmony, songwriting, ear training, bends, vibrato, arpeggios, music theory or just songs! If you don't know what you want learn...I can help you find your direction. Learning music should be informative AND fun!

About Anthony

As a third generation musician, I've been playing professionally and teaching for over 25 years. I've had years of private lessons, graduated from GIT in Hollywood, taken college music courses and continue to perform, record, and teach music. YOU can have fun, learning songs that YOU like, or you

Best Guitar Teacher!

I am 20, and I have been taking lessons with tony for almost 4 month. He really is a great teacher. He really makes guitar easy to learn and always give you confidence about learning new things. He is cool and nice, able to get you through all kinds of difficulties of learning guitar. Give hime a shot, if you really want to play guitar. He is better than any Youtube or on-line stuff.

Jamie
Andrew is such a great teacher! I'm a beginner guitar player who wanted to learn some of the basics and work on my technique, and Andrew was so patient and really took the time to work with me. Very easy-going and helpful, even though I know I'm not the best player. He clearly knows what he's doing when it comes to anything guitar-related and I cannot wait to set up another lesson. I already feel more confident in my abilities! Thanks Andrew!

"If you're thinking about taking lessons from Ahmad , do it. For years I thought I just couldn't play the guitar. I tried learning online, but nothing stuck. I even took a group class, which was better than trying to learn online, but I still wasn't satisfied. So, I decided to look into private lessons, even though I was nervous about the one-on-one dynamic. For years I have struggled with performance anxiety and was afraid that would prevent me from ever really learning the guitar and playing with other people. I discussed this with Ahmad before and at my first lesson. I can't tell you how amazing it felt a few months later when we played a song together and I had no fear or anxiety.

I credit this to the fun and relaxing atmosphere Ahmad has created in his studio space which makes it easy to learn, ask questions and enjoy my lessons. He has a deep passion for music which is infectious. I leave every lesson feeling energized and excited to work on my new material.

If you're interested in learning how to play the guitar or improve your skills, give Ahmad a shot. You'll be so glad you did. Before, I thought I just couldn't learn how to play the guitar, now I'm looking forward to years of honing my skills, playing with friends and experiencing the joy of creating music."

"I highly recommend , if you are interested in developing your guitar skills and/ or expanding your knowledge of music theory , to schedule an appointment with Devin for a lesson . I came from my native Brazil to study jazz at an american college and he patiently introduced me to jazz music . I not only was able to succeed in my jazz ensemble classes with straight A's , but I also got prepared to audition successfully to universities and will be completing my bachelors degree in music soon. And I thank Devin for that ."

"You make lessons fun....

From age 6 until high school I took piano lessons. But guitar was always an unexplored desire. I started taking lessons with Steve a few weeks ago. From the very beginning he has been just so easy and comfortable to work with. He willingly adapts his style of coaching to my specific needs as a student, learner and musician. He's so strong in his fundamentals that I can pick the music and he builds lessons around my choices. Really makes me look forward to my own practicing and even more to my next lesson. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Steve, for bringing music back into my life."
