Jason L.

Book Now

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:

Technique
Music Theory
Performance
Improvisation

After just my first lesson, I can already say that Jessica is an excellent instructor. She is thorough and very kind in making corrections to ensure long term success and the proper foundation to build skills. As an adult, I am grateful to have a skilled instructor who knows technique very well and has a gentle and professional manner. She is open to questions outside of the lesson time, and provides very good feedback. I am looking forward to weekly lessons!

My approach is fun, simple, and easy to understand. I focus on getting a strong foundation and excellent first experience with music. The child will be given a lesson and theory book to work from, but will also be encouraged to play music they personally like. This keeps the child motivated to play and adds an element of fun! These songs can then be used in our recitals, for auditions, or put in their personal repertoire book.

"Billy is a very good and patient teacher. He understands that it takes time to learn something completely new (which for me is music theory) especially when besides the lessons you also work full time. My previous teacher didn't have that patience which makes me value Billy's approach even more. He will do his best for you to understand whatever topic you're struggling with. Highly recommend"
