Alan was awesome! My son needed some last minute lessons before an upcoming concert he was performing in. Alan helped him fine tune his part and gave him the confidence he needed. My son is now excited for the concert and can't wait to show everyone his talent!

I took guitar lessons with Alan for two years. Now my sons take piano, guitar, and drum lessons with him. I would recommend him because he is patient, very knowledgeable, and is a good teacher.

Private Classical Guitar Teacher

Hey guitar players! What makes my teaching services stand out is that I teach nearly all styles of the guitar including rock, blues, metal, country, jazz, and classical. My main emphasis is in classical guitar, but I have much experience learning a variety of styles from several teachers from around the world. I also like to make our lessons fun with lots of playing and do not mind being patient with beginners. I teach younger students at CB Music Studios in Roseville, at my home in Carmichael, or privately at students' homes. Hope to see you soon! :)

Want to play your favorite songs? Want to write your own? While focusing primarily on technique and theory, we'll also spend at least part of each lesson being creative together, whether improvising, or writing something, or just playing a game, because I believe that to be a well-rounded musician is to know how to communicate one's own ideas fluently. We'll also explore a variety of styles, including rock, country, pop, folk, and jazz, and we will learn songs both using a pick and using the fingers. I can also teach students to actually read music and not just tablature, if they're interested in exploring jazz and classical music. Message me today to see if we'd be a good match!

About Kyle

I am a professional violinist, violist, guitarist, pianist, composer, and educator. In addition to recording and touring with my own bands, I regularly arrange and record strings for artists and producers in a wide range of styles, from underground rappers to indie rock bands to grammy winning pop

Online Classical Guitar Teacher

Classical music is a major passion of mine. I personally love playing Baroque music, but my studies have lead me to cover music from renaissance, classical, romantic and modern eras. My favorite classical composers to play on guitar are J.S. Bach, Leo Brouwer, Antonio Lauro and Mauro Giuliani. Each lesson we will work on developing our right and left hand technique so as to have better control over dynamics (volume), articulation (staccato, legato, and specific technical demands for hitting notes), tone (the depth and timbre our notes have) as well as exercises to help your hands feel less pain and gain the dexterity/strength to accomplish the demands of the piece you are working on. I’ll also teach you different performance practices for different styles (i.e., the difference between playing in the style of Baroque music versus 18th century or 20th century music).

About Henry

I perform and teach guitar professionally. Music is my passion and I love to learn new music and help others learn it as well. I currently specialize in teaching classical guitar with a focus on building strong technique, ear training, and practical applications for using formal and contemporary mu

He is very knowledgeable about the guitar, a really nice guy, very easy going and it was so nice to take lessons in a home rather than a tiny music store studio. He explained things well and gave assignments that were appropriate for my level. Unfortunately I wasn't able to continue due to physical issues. I would recommend him 100%."
