Learning the Ins and Outs of Guitar Playing

I must say that I am please with Jamie's technique and patience with me. Jamie is very knowledgable and shares some of his secrets (not shortcuts mind you) that help in learning to master the acoustic guitar. He leaves you with valuable lessons and exercises that can do nothing but improve on how you play the guitar. I'm looking forward to continuing my lessons with Jamie.

I work with GC at a music school and he's a really great teacher. We work with some of the same students, and I always see a huge increase in their ability after they work with him!
Nick L.
I have been working alongside GC at a music school for a few years now. He is a very knowledgable and versatile teacher and musician. His students stick with him for the long haul. GC is great at gauging where the student is at musically and what it will take to push them to the next level. I highly recommend this guy.
Meritxell N.
GC was a great teacher! He was perfect for what I needed. Specifically, GC has met me where I am in terms of my skills and experience. I am a more advanced student than GC typically gets. Instead of teaching me exercises and songs segments, which I have done with other teachers, he focused on developing my musicality and improvisation concepts! I love working with GC!

I have been teaching guitar full time from very young age its been about 12 years. and I have been helping many individuals to achieve their musical goals. I would encourage my students to learn essential elements of music properly and build the proper foundation from the start. building the good foundation doesn't mean to be boring it can be really fun at the same time. when you understand and be able to see the use of it in the process.

My philosophy as a teacher is to not only give every student a solid foundation of good technique and practice habits, but to most importantly foster their sense of musicality and expressiveness on the guitar. Having played and been dedicated to mastery of the guitar since the age of 10, I have found that the two greatest joys of playing regardless of skill level is 1. To find your "voice" on guitar and create your own music and 2. Playing and making music with other musicians. I aim to help any player of any age achieve these wonderful benefits by teaching music theory in a fun and practical way alongside developing their technical skills in engaging ways. I still consider myself a student of the instrument even after 14 years of playing and learning many styles, so students will also enjoy learning about (and from!) other great players and musicians as part of their curriculum, giving them an insightful history into the playing of various great guitarists and the timeless music they

About Zachariah

Hello! My name is Zach, and I have been in love with the guitar since I was 10 years old. Over the 14 years that I've been playing now, I have always been hungry to learn and play in many different styles, starting with blues and folk as a young boy and going on to learn jazz, country, R&B, metal,

Zach is a longtime friend and bandmate. Zach taught me music theory after I spent years and thousands of dollars on university courses that ended up failing. You could not hope for a more kind or patient instructor. He will make everything make sense, whether you’re new or like me and have been self taught for 13+ years. Any style of guitar or technique he will be able to teach you, as he has mastered so many different ways of expression on the guitar. A lesson with Zach will always be money well spent. Check out his YouTube channel, the proof is in his playing.

5 Delightful Jazz Guitar Licks - Tabs and Audio

Having a few guitar licks up your sleeve is super helpful when you're improvising. Guitar teacher Samuel B. shares a few of his favorite jazz guitar licks... Before we begin playing these jazz guitar licks, it's a good idea to get familiar with the pentatonic scale. The pentatonic scale is a more versatile and useful scale than you might think. While being an easily-recognized basis for blues, rock, and country solos, it can be (and frequently is) a scale used for jazz solos, too. A …
