Lee teaches acoustic guitar using a holistic and minimalist musical approach — you only learn what you really need to know. Learn how to play songs and have fun while you increase your guitar skills. Students can learn on a steel-string acoustic guitar, or a nylon string (classical) guitar. No note-reading is required to learn chord progressions, song structure, and effective strumming and picking patterns for folk, blues and rock acoustic guitar. Lee offers her own visual materials and chord grids, popular acoustic songs, and select acoustic guitar method books. She's also a Beatles expert and can take you from "Twist and Shout" to "Blackbird". Lee has performed and recorded as a singer-songwriter-guitarist since 2001, including hundreds of performances in the New Orleans area, ten years of performances at the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, and appearances at acoustic venues across the USA. • Award-winning performing singer-songwriter • Bachelor of Music Education from Loyola University, New Orleans (Instrumental Music) • Master of Music from Belmont University, Nashville (Instrumental Pedagogy) • Guitar Instructor for community college, high school and middle school  • "Acoustic Intensive" instructor in acoustic guitar, music theory and songwriting for the National Guitar Workshop in New Orleans, Austin, Chicago, and Nashville

If you are ready to start taking your guitar skills SERIOUSLY then stop wasting time and money on teachers who don't fully understand the instrument or subject matter themselves. My name is Russ and I have been playing guitar professionally for 20 years and teaching music and producing records for over 15. I have a Platinum #1 Billboard charting record under my belt, worked with artists such as Mac Miller, Sean Kingston, Red Velvet, Lifehouse and more; and have composed music to 100s of your favorite TV shows! Feel free to browse my official website for a full list of credits. Want to learn to shred guitar? Produce beats? Write your own songs? Dive into theory? Record yourself? This page is the one stop shop. Feel free to reach out with any requests or questions!

I teach every student the technical skills and applied theory necessary to work in any contemporary style on guitar. I use the "Be better than you have to be" approach. Want to be the best on a bad day? Be better than your chosen style requires. I studied classical and jazz in order to excel at rock, folk and blues. You will learn to read music and charts for guitar, as well as movable scale patterns, movable chord forms, and how to apply it all to master the fretboard. Have you hit a road block? I can help. Are you brand new and want to be sure you understand the instrument completely? I can help.

Guitar Lessons in Glendale

Becky S. - Guitar Teacher in Glendale

Burgeoning guitar players in Glendale can find inspiration in every direction. From the array of diverse small venues in Glendale, to the classic Los Angeles hotspots in nearby neighborhoods, there are tons of things to inspire you and your guitar playing.

Amoeba Amoeba in Hollywood is the music store to fulfill any audiophile's fantasy. This giant music store lures fans with its city block wide music selection and frequent in-store events. Get lost in the aisles of unexpected and familiar genres around the store and treat yourself to an unusual CD from the dollar bin - a perfectly fun option for music students who are just getting started with guitar lessons in Glendale. Their annual Mardi Gras "parade" particularly embodies the store's fun and silliness and should not be missed.

If you're in the mood to browse for music but aren't in the mood for an Amoeba-level wandering, Atomic Records in Burbank is a smaller, but just as mighty music shop even closer to Glendale.

For large scale tours and big name bands, The Hollywood Bowl, L.A. Live, The Wiltern, and The Greek (to name a few) are just a skip away. These power houses are must-stop venues for most North American tours. What’s a better way to get inspired after a few guitar lessons in Glendale then to watch the professionals take the stage?

Amphitheaters like The Hollywood Bowl and The Greek let you wave your (figurative) California flag high as you enjoy music in the open air.

If you're just in the mood for drooling over some truly beautiful guitars, Imperial Vintage Guitars in Burbank and Sherman Oaks offers plenty of eye candy. They also boast a repair shop, should you find yourself in need. Grayson's Tune Town is a guitar shop right in Glendale that does repairs and offers rental options if you are just getting to know the type of guitars you enjoy playing.

In Glendale, live music venues are everywhere. Watching local artists in small venues can really connect you in to your local musician network, as well as inspire you to keep practicing.

Left Coast Wine Bar & Gallery offers a cozy upstairs loft where intimate acts compliment the relaxed lounge. On Sundays, they have an open mic night, where you can get up on stage yourself. Open mic nights are a perfect way to show off that you have been taking guitar lessons in Glendale and keeping up with your practicing.

Complex is Glendale's finest gritty bar venue. This is the type of place where garage bands pay their dues and have a good time doing it.

Jax Bar & Grill is a must for local jazz lovers. Steamy acts are served up seven nights a week.

Though Glendale's local music venues lean in the direction of bars, a short trip to North Hollywood's Republic of Pie offers a classic coffee shop venue for music lovers of all ages. Here, all sorts of acts perform, and all go great with a cup of coffee or a slice of pie. Squashy couches and chairs make this a very comfortable place to enjoy music.

Now you know where to go, get out there and enjoy! The more you listen to and explore the things you love about music, the more proud you can be of all the steps you are taking to be a part of the music community! So what are you waiting for? Sign up for guitar lessons in Glendale now!

See you around town!
