I have loved learning and teaching guitar for over a decade. I have a really great method that will string you through the lessons you need to get you on your feet!

About Alex

I was passionate about music when I was younger, but I never had the tools to get where I wanted. Music was always a mystery to me and I got stuck learning from tabs and not stepping out of my circle of knowledge. It wasn't until I pursued music seriously that my love for the art really took off. I

Music has been my passion since I was 10 years old. I didn't have any real instruments at first, so, I built my own out of coffee cans, ice cream containers and of course: a rubber band shoebox guitar! It might sound funny, but, I believe these early days of trying to create music using my "homemade symphony," forced me to really get to the core of sound and expression without the pre-set curriculum of traditional music study. Early on, I learned a few fundamental concepts of music theory that would forever change how I learned, as well as how I taught music to others. I believe these concepts set a foundation that allowed me to understand music and grow much faster - including learning multiple instruments.

And yes, I eventually acquired a real guitar and went on to study music and computers at the University of California and I currently compose music for TV and film in my own studio. I have taught guitar, bass, piano, drums, theory, composition and recording production to ...

I am currently only accepting students interested in specializing in classical guitar.

_____________________________________________
Over the course of many years, I have taught various styles of guitar to many different types of people. Whether you're interested in learning to play a specific song, or if you've just always wanted to play guitar but weren't sure where to start, I will join you in your journey and help you discover the tools that you need to reach the level that you want.
I help my students figure out and understand how the instrument and their own hands work, so that they are able to get full control of the guitar and play in various styles with ease. I work to make sure as many doors as possible are open to my students, and I leave it up to them to decide which doors they want to walk through.

"William has been exceptional as a teacher for my daughter. My daughter started lessons at age 9 with a smaller guitar recommended by William and as she grew, he made recommendations on both electric and acoustic guitars.
His understanding her goals with music and personalizing a plan to help her attain those goals makes William invaluable.
Many programs are geared for teaching the student to play a song quickly which leads to boredom; the building blocks that William has set up provides the student with skills that will keep her engaged in this choice.
if you are a parent and you want the best for your child, choose a teacher that has credibility, and the student's best interest in mind."

"My 12 year old daughter is taking Guitar lessons from Jeremie for the last 6 months. She had never picked up a guitar before, so we knew this could be challenging. Jeremie has been so wonderful with her. Making the lessons fun, but also giving great one on one instructions. I highly recommend him as a teacher! As a parent, Jeremie is wonderful to work with when scheduling lessons. He is extremely accommodating, and understands kids and parents seem to be a little overloaded. He is very quick to respond when you email questions, or have scheduling issues. I HIGHLY recommend Jeremie. Give him a try!!! He is WONDERFUL!!!!

I asked if I could take lessons this past June and she agreed to teach me. I am so happy that Karen is teaching me to play a guitar, I did not think I would ever be able to do that but I am learning thanks to her great teaching skills, patience and fantastic knowledge of music. She is very encouraging and teaches on my level of understanding never above my head. I would recommend Karen to anyone that has a desire to learn to play a guitar she is perfect for me!"
