Dillon is a first rate guitar instructor!

I've taken lessons with Dillon for 5 months, and he has helped me make tremendous progress. I was lucky to find Dillon because my music interests are all over the place. I wanted to learn about fingerstyle, soul, jazz, blues, Latin music, music theory, transcribing for bands. Dillon helped me with all of those. He's the kind of person whose has really studied the guitar and can distill the music from many styles into a few simple ideas for the guitar, and explain those ideas in a memorable way.

I'll continue taking lessons from him, and would recommend him as a teacher to anyone looking for a teacher with charisma.

Dillon is an absolutely amazing teacher. I just started playing the piano a few months ago and he has been instrumental in motivating me and giving me the tools I need to get started. He is always willing to switch it up each lesson depending on how I am feeling that week and I really enjoy working with him. Dillon is extremely talented and dedicated to music which is really great, because starting out can be hard. I would highly recommend Dillon to anyone!

Dillon- was not reliable. He no-showed twice and his phone was not active. Not a good start for beginner student!

Private Classical Guitar Teacher

I am a current student of music at California State San Bernardino and the first of my class to graduate with a Bachelors of Music.

My lesson plan will be tailored to what you want to get out of guitar, not some copy and paste curriculum like other institutions.

My degree concentration is in the classical guitar but in my spare time I have personally perused shred guitar as a hobby. Anything you want to learn we will learn together! So please, do not be intimidated. Jazz, pop, country, folk, and R&B are just some extra genres I can help you with.

When learning with me you won’t just learn how to play songs but you will also learn your instrument, as well as the building blocks of music theory. I can also help with students who wish to learn to read music as well.

Frankie helped me with my clarinet tone within the first 15 minutes of the first lesson, and gave me many more helpful playing tips throughout the hour. He was really interested in what my goals were. Looking forward to many more lessons with Frankie.

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

Online Classical Guitar Teacher

Classical is my specialty. I've taught for almost 15 years and can really help you reach your goals and become a better musician.

KIDS:
I also specialize in teaching kids classical guitar. Classical for your kids is the best way to get them learning real music and theory, developing the best possible technique and good habits, and literally changing their brain chemistry for the better! The foundations they establish with classical leads them to better playing of ANY style even if they don't stick with classical. I am contracted out and travel the nation teaching kids classical guitar and teaching teachers how to teach it, so I feel fully confident you're in the best hands you could be in if your child takes lessons with me.

ADULTS:
If you're just starting out, I will help you build a technical foundation first, playing through a "boot camp" of easy pieces to build sight reading and technical skills. When you're done with that you're ready to tackle some really cool ...

"Ahmad is great. I started with him in November last year and have been seeing him weekly since. He's that perfect blend of very, very smart about guitar+music, but down to earth in his style and methodology. He's also a great guy and makes lessons fun. I discovered Ahmad from the Internet then found out that a close friend had learned guitar from him a couple of years ago. She raves about him. Bottom-line: if you're looking for quality guitar instruction from a genuine and very capable teacher you can't do better than Ahmad."

"I love that the 5-star rating description is "Best instructor ever" because I often tell people that my son's guitar teacher is the best music instructor we have ever had. I have 5 kids, and they have played piano in the past. This year my oldest is taking guitar for the first time. The thing that I love most about KJ is that he doesn't just teach my son how to play the notes -- he teaches him how to play music. There is a big difference between those two, and KJ is helping my son to see the music beyond the notes. KJ does a great job teaching notes, theory, and technique, but he teaches so much more that that as well. I can't say enough good things about KJ."

Should Classical Violinists Learn to Improvise?

A few weeks ago the Washington Post published an article about musician Hannah Hanh and her struggles with improvisation.  As a classical violinist, she hadn't had much training for spontaneity, naturally. The article points out improvisation as a technique that has fallen by the wayside for many performers these days. And it asks an interesting question: Can (and should) classical musicians learn to improvise? We've talked a lot about improvising on the guitar and drums, but where do classi …
