Private Guitar Teacher

Mark is an American composer, singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and music producer.

I started teaching private music lessons my senior year of high school, in 2006. Since then I've taught over 50 different students of all ages from 3 years old to 61 years old. While still living in Ohio, I was the one and only official guitar teacher for Guitar Center Youngstown through the duration of 2008-2009. In late 2009, after moving to Los Angeles, I continued to teach privately all around the city. I currently live in West Hollywood with my wife and dog. I plan to continue teaching private students for the rest of my life.

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:

Music Theory

We moved to the area from aboard 6 months ago and didn't no how to find a guitar teacher for our daughter.

"Incredibly knowledgeable in physical techniques required for guitar; He is a master of all the subjective hands-on knowledge you can't learn from a video or a book, like individual hand/wrist placement, strength building, muscle memory, string bending. His curriculum is excellent for developing the raw ability to play as desired.

We initially did lessons in person then transitioned to Skype once I moved away. I found no difference between in-person or Skype."

Steve assessed my playing and immediately homed in on some well established bad habits as well as outlining a plan to fill all the gaps in knowledge I have from never having learned the theory. I can immediately see this is going to be very good for my playing. Very excited, should have done this years ago."

"I have had 3 lessons with Alexander so far and I have 2 more left. I'm still up in the air whether I will continue lessons with him or not. Here's why;

Sustains: Professional and Knowledgeable; Alexander definitely knows what he's talking about. I've noticed major improvements since I've started working with him. Keep in mind, I practice a lot on my own, but Alexander provides you with the tools and materials you need to continue growing in the fastest way possible. He doesn't have a teaching method set in stone. He tailors each lesson to benefit the student based on where he or she is skill-wise. Alexander observes you closely while you play and offers you advice and solutions to specific problems when he notices you struggling. Some of my issues are solved immediately.

Improves: Alexander lacks, in my opinion, a very important virtue that I believe all teachers should possess. A passion to teach you. You forget this when you are sitting with him in his studio, but the realization comes back and hits you when the clock hits 30 minutes exact and he says, "And that's all we have time for." Let me be very clear, -I'm receiving what a paid for-, so I'm not upset. I just think a teacher should invest in a student's growth and their commitment to the student shouldn't be based solely on what they make out of it financially. Unfortunately, I know that if the money ever stops coming in our lessons will end immediately. Once again, I can't complain or be upset. I paid for a service and I'm receiving it.

This was made clear to me again last week when I had to cancel a lesson.
The teachers need a 24-hour notice for cancellations which is fair and understandable. However, I didn't know this at the time so when I cancelled he only had about 4 hours notice. His initial response was that, "He understood but TakeLessons will charge you for the lesson anyway. Let me know if you still want to meet." After texting him back explaining my problem with that, he went ahead and ensured I wasn't charged. Let me repeat, -In the end he did help me-, but if I hadn't said anything he would've let TakeLessons charge me.

Conclusion: 4 stars. I paid for a service and I'm receiving it well. Alexander's talent for teaching really shines when you listen to his advice, act on it, and notice yourself improving. Understand that improvement comes from practicing on your own time, but Alexander will provide you with everything you need to expedite your growth.
Remember, however, this is a business. If they stop profiting from you don't expect any leniency."
