Great friendly instructor!

Matt continues to challenge me. His teaching methods are great - he doesn't just teach techniques, he immediately puts techniques to work by applying them to a song I would like to learn. He is also very good about explaining the reasoning behind certain techniques/habits.

Hi!

I’ve been playing guitar for 10 years, starting from a shredhead, evolving to a jazzboy, and ending up as a who knows what. I got my BS in Contemporary Music Studies at SUNY New Paltz studying with Mark Dziuba, one of the baddest dudes around.

I’ve played in bands ranging from funk, straight-ahead and gypsy jazz to indie and surf rock. When it comes to music my mind is totally open; If you’re interested in it, I am interested.

Patient and funny-great teacher!

Working from home for the past 8 months has made me stir-crazy. I decided I needed a hobby. I had an old acoustic guitar that was gathering dust. I had tried to learn to play on my own years ago by reading a book, but gave up quickly. It didnt take long to realize that playing the guitar requires hand manipulations that are at times completely foreign to the human body. Tony pretty much showed me that I was taking the wrong approach from the start. What I appreciated the most is that Tony was able to guide me to getting to a point in just a couple of sessions where I could actually play something recognizable. Tony is a nice guy, very knowledgeable, respectful, and PATIENT (thank god).

Great learning experience with Eric.
David
I can't say enough good things about Earl's instruction. He's extremely knowledgeable and talented and yet responsive, inspiring, and kind. Rather than applying a narrow and rigid approach to teaching, lessons are built around my abilities and interests and he has taught me new ways of looking at music and playing guitar. I feel very fortunate to be one of his students.
Kevin P.
Great experience! Looking forward to more.

I teach you to be a musician, not just an instrumentalist. There is a huge difference. I give you material to learn while doing my best to make it fun as well. I teach you the basics and build on that foundation. You can learn the material as fast or as slow as you want. However, it is not a canned approach because every student is unique and your learning styles reflect that. My goal is your success, truly!

They all had one major thing in common, it was FUN! If you are not enjoying learning an instrument you won't want to learn. Lessons can be fun AND e

Extremely unprofessional to abruptly cancel scheduled/paid lessons without the courtesy of a message or any notice because this instructor was unhappy with a 12-year-old child's progress. Very surprised by and disappointed in the manner in which he handled this situation, certainly could have been handled with more respect and maturity.

Jerry is a wonderful instructor. I wasn’t sure how online lessons would go but they have been seamless and fun and my son is making progress with the bugle. I would highly recommend this format and this teacher. The convenience and quality of instruction are excellent. We are signing up for more lessons and may move on to another instrument once my son feels confident on the bugle.

About Stewart

Hello There! My name is Stewart, I am a guitarist and singer-songwriter living in California! I graduated from the University of California at Santa Barbara in 2011 with a Bachelor's Degree in Music. I have played guitar since the age of 14 and have been a passionate music fanatic my entire life.

Our 8-year-old son Finn has been taking Piano lessons from Stewart since last Fall when he was 7, and he is greatly enjoying it.

Stewart is a very patient and motivating teacher, and he does a good job commanding attention for our easily-distracted little dude. The lessons are well-tailored for his age and level of abilities (beginner). This has helped to make the learning fun and frustration-free. The skills are coming very naturally at a good pace, and I am surprised by how well he is beginning to read music, and to know the note lengths, intensities, fingerings, etc.

Stewart also occasionally sends us personal video lessons to help build upon Finn's skills where he needs help the most. This helps to keep him interested and practicing; it's been a very nice personalized approach that we have enjoyed.

So far these lessons have been online, but we look forward to the time when we can go to in-person lessons with Stewart. It has been a great experience so far, and we plan to stick with it.
Abel
Stewart is so kind, thoughtful, and talented! I have had two other guitar teachers before him and Stewart is by far the best. Stewart makes learning guitar so fun by telling me music history, helping me with my own songs that I am writing, and teaching me really cool songs! There are so many things that I like about Stewart, but the thing that I like the most is the way that he teaches me songs that I like. He askes me what song I want to learn how to play and teaches it to me. My other guitar teachers would teach straight out of the book which could become boring after a while. Stewart also gives me great music suggestions to learn too! He introduces me to bands and artists that he knows that I would like. Stewart is very confident at distance and in-person learning too! The lessons go very smoothly! Stewart even makes additional videos that he sends me so I can understand it better. Stewart is very enthusiastic, fun, and kind. I feel very lucky to have Stewart as my guitar teacher! No one else could come anywhere close to comparing to him!!
Jorge
Stewart has been amazing with my son. He started when he was 5 and a half years old and he is now 7. I have seen my son's skills grow over the time Stewart has been teaching him.

He is very accommodating, every once in a while last minute things come up because as they always do, but Stewart is very flexible and accommodated to my needs.

Stewart is also very skilled. My son has had some unique request for songs he wants to learn, for example "Zelda needs a ladder Deadmou5e mix" and Stewart was able to figure out the music notes in no time and taught him that song all in one 30 minute class.

Stewart is great with my son and very patient he wants the kids to enjoy the learning process and not be a drag. The homework he assigns is easy to follow that even I started learning the guitar from the homework my son is given.

Can't say enough good things about Stewart.

Blake is a really great teacher. I've been taking weekly vocal/guitar lessons with him for about 4 months and have seen really impressive improvement. On guitar I've gone from playing basic acoustic chords to transcribing and playing electric solos. He's also been teaching me theory at a nice digestible rate which has helped a lot too. I would definitely recommend Blake for anyone who's serious about vocals or guitar. If you put in the time to practice he can definitely make you better!

"Ahmad is a fantastic teacher, and not just for beginners but for experienced players as well!
I've been playing guitar for about 20 years, but haven't taken any formal lessons in the past 15 of those. I felt like I was in a rut with my playing so I started taking lessons with Ahmad a few months ago. He was able to immediately help me improve my technique and help me correct some inefficiencies that I didn't even notice I was doing. The word "inefficiencies" in the last sentence was chosen very deliberately because Ahmad has a great way of showing that there are multiple ways to play the instrument and not one specific "right" and "wrong" way.
I feel like I've made more progress in the last 4 months than I had in years."

"Years ago I took Guitar Lessons at a local music store ( a very prominent one) as a raw beginner and quickly became frustrated with my lack of progress. Although my teacher was a great player and "very hot" to look at I soon began to feel like I was merely his "practice dummy."... I'd play the chords he showed me, endlessly,... while he seemed to be just practicing his solo playing. ... I then tried On-Line Lessons from various sites which were actually even less helpful and soon just lost interest completely.
A friend of mine said she had taken lessons from a Don DeBold for about 5 years before going off to college and highly recommended him.
I've now been taking lessons from Don for almost 2 years and having a blast ! I've learned how to play along with most of my favorite songs (mainly Blues and Rock) and now I'm learning to play Solo Guitar that needs no accompaniment !
Unlike my first teacher, during many lessons Don barely plays or even has his Strat on his lap because he's busy concentrating on what I'm doing !
He's a stickler yet lots of fun at the same time> I super recommend him as a Guitar and Music Teacher !!! Aneiah J."
