I play many instruments, but Guitar is my first instrument. I'll go through a method book together with you, in which you can learn the basics, including note reading, playing some simple chords...After some months this basic course will open a door for you to enter the world of Guitar playing and you'll be able to play many songs. Many of my students are interested to sing to Guitar and I help them to sing to Guitar too because I am a voice instructor too. Guitar is an easy and fun instrument to play.

Successfully teaching current students with clear, concise lessons.

All of my current students have developed confidence and enthusiasm to learn all materials presented in an easy to comprehend format.

Each student learns at different levels so all lessons are customized to challenge them but also insure they learn and retain all materials presented to them.

Currently have 16 students ranging from beginners to advanced level.
When selecting a teacher, make arrangements to meet in person to review short and long term goals of learning a musical instrument. Pricing should only be used as the last criteria before making a final decision. It's important to insure your instructor is patient and willing to challenge students to setup a practice routine that will fit their current schedule.

If a student needs an instrument, have instructor give recommendations based on the musical styles they are interested in learning.

Students often ask how long it will take to learn to play a Guitar.

Alejandro is a great instructor, really knowledgeable and motivational. I started lessons with him as a beginner and I have made a lot of progress.

Alejandro is a marvelous teacher of music, the guitar specifically, to my 3 grandchildren every Saturday and now for getting onto a year. They love it and are learning ever so much! He is a most talented musician, himself, and has a way of transferring all of that to the 2 boys and my granddaughter. He is reliable and punctual and a treasure to have the opportunity to have him teach the children. I studied the piano for 15 years when I was young, so know a lot of what I speak

About Joe Danny

Hello! Thanks for checking out my page. I've been playing guitar for more than fifteen years. I studied jazz performance and music theory with the Applied Musicians Program at Mesa College, which has changed my view on playing music across all instruments and styles. I've been playing other genres

Joe was a great teacher. I had a bit of beginner knowledge and was looking to take my playing to the next level. Joe was great at creating a practice routine that had the perfect blend of learning and fun. My playing has gotten noticeably better and I'm well on the way to reaching my goals. 5/5 would recommend.
Matt C.
Joe taught my 13 year old son.

On the lesson side, he brought a great mix of fundamentals (scales, etc.) and keeping my son really engaged by also teaching him tunes he wanted to learn.

On the logistics side, he was equally perfect: great communicator, never late, personable.

A nice guy, great player/teacher, and professional: I can't recommend him highly enough.

We're off to a GREAT start.

I enjoy teaching all types of music. My greatest passion is the legendary jazz rhythm guitar style of Freddie Green with the Count Basie Orchestra. That disciplined and understated beauty combines harmonic theory, rhythmic strength and dynamic sensitivity. Guitar in any ensemble or solo brings o

I do not have a degree in music. In fact, it's what separates me from most teachers -- my approach is completely different. My 15+ years of playing guitar, 20M streams of my original music online, along with all the tips n' tricks I've picked up along the way, make for a unique learning experience.

No theory. No scales. Just the goods. Are scales bad? NO! They're useful & necessary -- but the key to developing a quick passion for guitar is being able to 1. play songs you love 2. write your own material 3. be excited to pick it up and jam.

About Eric

I was born in NY and picked up the guitar at age 13. All I wanted to do was be able to write my own songs. Original songs turned into jams with friends, which turned into bands. Bands turned into touring around the country. All that travel brought me to lovely San Diego now, at age 29, with just as

I have played blues, hard rock, fingerpicking, folk, and jazz music on the guitar since 2006. I have played onstage in rock bands and jazz combos and received years of private instruction. I am a chronic improviser, a composer, a creative musician, and a music theory geek.

My enthusiasm for the guitar is related to its irreplaceable role in genres that are uniquely and beautifully American like blues, bluegrass, and rock 'n' roll.

I can teach you how to play the basics, how to solo, how to write a song, how to play jazz chords, how to play rock riffs, how to groove, how to fingerpick, or whatever you want to learn.

Check out my guitar lesson demo video on my profile to hear me play!
