I can teach traditional classical guitar finger picking techniques using a nylon string guitar. I can also teach fingerpicking on steel string acoustic guitar, as well as performing and arranging classical pieces on the electric guitar. I also love to make my own arrangements of classical pieces from other instruments. My personal favorites to perform are J. S. Bach and Heitor Villa-Lobos.

My daughter (9), son (7) and myself are all taking lessons and Cris Is able to adapt for all our learning needs and makes it fun along the way too.
Derek R.
I had my first lesson today. Cris is the real deal. He is an excellent guitar player and was able to coax what little skill and talent I possess into a formidable lesson early on. I'll be booking my Son along with myself and returning. We are blessed to have someone in the Rancho Bernardo/Rancho Penaquitos area like Cris!

My 9-year-old daughter and 11-year-old son have been taking uke lessons for 3 weeks now and they really enjoy Ruben's style of teaching; so do we. He provides a great combination of making it fun while also really teaching them the foundations of music. They are already reading and writing some music and they enjoy doing their music homework. Most important, they are having fun at the lessons and while practicing at home.

Private Classical Guitar Teacher

I have been teaching since 2008 and have a BA in Music. Classical Guitar is my specialty. I have been studying and teaching it for many years. My students have learned pieces like Recaurdos de Alahambra and Leyenda (Austarias). I have played many recitals solo and as a duet with a flute. Classical guitar takes many years of practice, patient, and dedication. It is my belief, however, that classical is one best forms of training out there.

About Andrei

Teaching music is one of my passions. I value each student and the time I have with them; helping them to explore the world of music. After each lesson, my students walk away with a deeper understanding of music and have enjoyed their time. Music is a lifelong skill that can always be practiced and

"The reason why I called Jim was to help me with my classical guitar pieces for my ASU audition. I had very little experience in this side and of music and looking for a teacher was important. I hired Jim for an hour every Sunday the past month of January. The way he approached the music pieces and the knowledge he had was very impressive. Jim is also very patient and lets you have control over the lesson and start or suggest were to begin the lecture. I was able to lean a piece and know how to approach classical guitar thanks to Jim. There were somethings that I din't like about some of the lessons, There were times that when Jim was lecturing, he would get side tracked and forget about the topic and not even look at the music for a great majority of the hour, it was defiantly frustrating. Nonetheless, Jim is a great teacher, always appreciated when he stayed over the hour to further discus the piece. For these reasons I have decided to give Jim a four out of five rating."

I'm still a beginner but I've tried various methods of learning classical guitar and from what I've seen through the various methods I've used, I believe I've learned more information that is going to project me forward faster through Cole in just a few classes than I have through the other methods I've tried so far."

"I've been taking lessons for 3 years now with Ahmad. My classical guitar ambitions are frequently met with technical and musical obstacles, and Ahmad has always helped me work through them and keep me moving forward.

I have also been working on music theory and basic guitar chords - Ahmad has helped guide me to a better understanding and technical proficiency.

Lessons are conducted in a friendly and supportive way and his positive attitude plays a vital role in motivating me to keep working at guitar. I think no matter what your guitar goals are, Ahmad can help you move improve and keep taking it to the next level."

"Hands down, Nick is an incredible music teacher. My online guitar lessons with him are greatly helpful for both my guitar playing and for when I eventually return to playing piano (I played piano for several years when I was younger). In addition to his knowledge of music and pedagogy, his responsiveness is amazing. When I first started lessons with him, I had an electric guitar with goals of learning hard rock and metal. After a few lessons, my goals drastically changed, and I am now learning on a classical guitar. Despite this massive shift in focus, the quality of Nick’s lessons has not diminished in any way. With his help, I picked out a more appropriate guitar and the lessons have only gotten better. If you want someone who is not only incredibly skilled but also knows how to teach his set of skills, Nick is the teacher for you, regardless of which genre of guitar music you want to learn. I will add that his online lessons are just as good as any in-person instruction."
