Private Guitar Teacher

I've been teaching guitar to students of all experience levels and ages for 20 years. I structure lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of basic musicianship. I typically use Hal Leonard Guitar Method for those students who want to learn to read music.

About Rhonda

I have always had a love for music. From all the music trivia games my family won't play with me, to my large collection of records, cassettes, and CDs - I am hooked! I made my solo performance debut at age 7 by singing "It's A Small World" acapella in a school talent show. At age 9 I started

"Blake is an outstanding teacher. I have over 20 years of experience playing guitar, but felt my playing had stalled. I did an extensive search for the right teacher, and found Blake. We talked the first time and I was impressed enough to make an hour-plus drive to meet with him. During our first lesson he identified weaknesses I knew I had (and try to cover up with some clever playing), as well as strengths, and put a plan together to get me moving, and it has.

Blake has done Skype lessons for every other time we work together. He has been great and I recommend him to all ages and players. He is approachable, kind, encouraging and effective. I have worked with many drum and guitar instructors over the years, and Blake is among the best."

"Great lessons, great guy

I've been taking lessons from Jason for about 8 months now, and they've been awesome. I've been playing for several years, but never took formal lessons--just checking tabs and playing along with songs. My main goal was to learn everything I missed: the basics, theory, technique... After just a lesson or two, Jason had figured out my skill level, set up relevant exercises, and began incorporating theory into what I already knew. I've seen huge improvements to my playing in such a short time, and I'm a bad student that barely practices.

What's impressed me the most is how well he incorporates the theory and exercises into actively learning songs you're interested in.. it keeps you exercising the theory while still having fun playing more than just scales. Definitely recommended for anyone wanting to dive into theory, improvisation, etc."

"Jedi Training. That's what I like to call my guitar lessons. Because Trevor teaches you how to use the force. I like how Trevor gets me out of my left brain with exercises like closing my eyes while I pick out chords & notes. He know how to push me past my comfort zone while still keeping it fun.

The topics of lessons aren't one size fits all (like some teachers that teach the same thing every week to all their students) But he tailors each lessons to my interests & deftly weaves all aspects of music together from theory, to chord structure, to picking, to levitating x-wings using your mind."

Livermore Guitar Teacher

By Mike G. - Livermore Guitar Teacher

Hi my name is Mike Gianelli and I teach guitar Lessons in Livermore. I have been playing guitar for almost 17 years now and have been playing in bands since I was very young. Music has always been my passion and something I have always loved to do. I have been on a full US tour and have released various albums Nation wide with my band "Dissipate". I have taught guitar lessons for five years now in Livermore. I am currently teaching out of the "Burning Burro Studios” in Livermore, CA. It's a 24 hour studio off of Brisa St, which is a nice location. The clean environment and friendly people make lessons fun and enjoyable.

Teaching guitar lessons is one of my favorite things to do. It gives me the opportunity to teach people how to play a complicated but fun instrument. I’m a very patient teacher that knows how hard it is for somebody who first starts out on guitar. All my students enjoy their lessons and learn something new every time. I teach various types of music, which range from: Rock, Jazz, Metal, Jazz Fusion, Blues, Theory, and lots of different scales, modes and exercises. My job is to provide you with the right tools to help you be the guitar player you have always wanted to be. Guitar is such a powerful instrument. It always makes my day when I see my students have learned a new song or when they have achieved something they had been struggling with. It's a very accomplished feeling and I’m very grateful to have the opportunity to teach aspiring guitarists.
