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

I graduated from Musicians Institute in Hollywood (originally called GIT), a renowned music school especially for the guitar. I have had taken guitar lessons and also taught students of different ages for nearly 5 years before I attended MI.

I received an honors degree of Guitar Performance and Audio Engineering and have been on the Dean's List every quarter.

I will combine my teaching experience and what I have learned and summarized from my learning, in order to give you comprehensive, in-depth, straightforward, and easily applicable lessons from beginner to advanced.

When I was teaching back then, I sometimes focused on one thing at a time and didn't realized how important to combine all things together it is until I went to MI. I will cover all the following sections throughout my lessons, so that you will become more of a musician, instead of a, for lack of a better word, guitarist:

Daniel even bought his own guitalele when I signed for lessons so he could better teach my son which was very cool. He regularly transposes guitar music so my son can learn his favorite tunes on the guitalele. I highly recommend him!!"
