Zach is awesome! My 15yo daughter has been loving her lessons and is excited to show us what she has learned after every lesson. She picked up the guitar herself about six months ago and after learning some basics from YouTube she asked if she could have lessons to get to the next level. She will definitely be continuing her weekly lessons with Zach for as long as she wants. We love hearing her practice every day and are excited that she is learning to play the music she listens to and has a passion for.

Zac was a great instructor.
Renay F.
Zach is a great teacher! He has been teaching my son (HS Junior) piano since November and from the start, Zach has been very easy to work with, a good balance of encouragement while challenging Noah to improve his skill level. Definitely recommend :)

Edwin is a fantastic teacher and so patient. I am amazed at how much my son has learned in just a couple lessons.
David S.
Had an excellent initial discussion with my instructor, Edwin, today. It was big picture but at the same time Edwin’s comments & suggestions gave me confidence in his command of the art (engineering, arrangement, composition & structure, and playing techniques), all the things I’m going to need help with to take my musical projects to another level.
Mike
Edwin is chill, flexible, and conveys a ton of relevant practice tips every lesson.

With each one of my students, I take into account how much time they are willing to practice, what genres interest them, and what learning style works best (for example, I've found that music theory makes things click faster for some people and saps all the enjoyment out of learning an instrument for others). I then come up with a structured lesson plan that is specifically catered to their needs.

If you have any other questions, feel free to contact me. Look forward to hearing from you soon!

About Jonah

Learning to play the guitar is one of the most rewarding experiences you'll ever have. Whether this is your first time picking up the guitar or you've been playing for years, I'll make sure your lessons are structured and paced in a way that's specifically catered to your goals. I've worked with

I've been taking lessons with Jonah for 6 years now (4th-10th grade) and the experience has been amazing! With Jonah's help, I have learned so much about the guitar, both in technical aspects and in simply "jamming." Jonah is always very patient, kind, encouraging, and his passion for music very clearly shows in his teaching. Every lesson I take is very enjoyable, and I always come out of the lessons feeling like I have made good progress on whatever it was we were working on that week. Whether you wish to learn about complex music theory and lead guitar (like I am currently doing), or just want to learn how to play a few songs, Jonah is a perfect choice as a teacher. Additionally, Jonah is very communicative and flexible with timing. Whenever I need to cancel or reschedule a lesson for whatever reason, Jonah responds to my messages quickly and is almost always able to find another day that week for our lesson to take place on. 5 stars, fantastic teacher, I highly recommend Jonah!
Jamie W.
Johah is very patient and flexible. He identifies and is willing to work on techniques, such as barre chords, in a way that finally helps me to stop the buzzing! I am looking forward to working with him.
Casey
My 15 year old son has been taking virtual guitar lessons with Jonah and has loved it. Jonah is a great teacher who really gets on my son’s level and connects. It’s a fun thing for him to do during this strange year.

Obviously also depending on your specific goals and experience, besides learning your favorite songs, we'll discuss techniques, music theory and creating music yourself (improvisation and songwriting).

I can also provide helpful advice on guitar related aspects like sound/equipment, instrument setup /maintenance and recording.

About Nils

Whether you're a beginner or more advanced, age 5 or 500, in my experience, with even a few minutes of consistent daily practice anyone can learn music. Maybe your goal is to simply learn to play your favorite songs or maybe you want to learn to write your own music, improvise, or perform live. Li

John
Nils is an extremely knowledgeable and accomplished instructor. He has extraordinary patience and excellent teaching skills. Coming from an adult student with high expectations, Nils has constantly delivered instructional value far beyond beyond what my paid "app" lessons were able to teach me. I highly recommend you give Nils a shot if you want to take your guitar playing to the next level.
Annette
Susana
Nils is extremely knowledgeable and explains concepts thoroughly and patiently. He’s very much mastered both teaching and performing his craft and is equal parts artistic and technicality minded, a balance most of my previous creative instructors lacked, and one I believe plays an integral part in teaching a craft well.

"After years of working on my scales and feeling like I still didn't know my way around the guitar, Tom was able to explain how to play scales vertically in both major and minor keys in just one lesson. No one before him had been able to explain it in such a way for it to finally click for me. Since then, I feel like my shredding skills have improved 10 fold and I have fallen even more in love with playing and jamming along to my favorite songs. Tom is patient, kind, calm, and an incredibly skilled guitarist that anyone would be lucky to learn from!"
