About Gabriel

Most beginners I’ve encountered have no idea what they want to play or even why. my suggestion is before coming to your teacher pinpoint the what and the why. Why did you want to learn guitar? Was it a song, or a really cool sounding riff? Did you see someone play live and feel like “I could do th

Working with Eli was amazing. He's a great teacher and he moved through the material at just the speed I needed. I improved greatly over the semesters I spent working with him. I highly recommend him as a teacher.
Dominique
I had a great experience with Eli. He was patient, compassionate, detail oriented, and extremely knowledgeable on the subject matter. He gave useful tips, tricks, and shortcuts for synthesizing the information and retention of concepts. Highly recommended for any level of instruction.
Kris Ramakrishna
Eli is an amazing educator. Not only is he very knowledgeable in Music theory, Guitar, Composition, and arranging, but he has a great outlook on life. I owe the success of my audition at Berklee College of Music to him! We worked step by step on the audition process, and he helped me see what the college was looking for. Now I am at Berklee's Graduate program, and helping tutor other students like Eli did for me! If you do what Eli says, I can guarantee that you will achieve or become much closer to achieving your goals!

Online Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Hello! My name is Max Fletcher - I have been playing and teaching guitar for over 15 years. I recently graduated from the New England Conservatory of Music, where I studied Guitar Performance with Maestros Eliot Fisk and Joe Morris, and Composition with Stratis Minakakis. When teaching, I have always tried to provide a multi-faceted and multi-dimensional experience that encourages learning to take place on many levels simultaneously. Music making is a process that involves many technical, theoretical, practical, and even historical elements, and is not a linear progression but often more circular in nature. In my own practice I have always tried to let the music guide and inform me, and consequently the most important element of my teaching is the experience of the music itself.

About Max

I began with the electric guitar at age 10 playing jazz, blues, and metal before becoming interested in classical guitar when I was 14. I have performed internationally in numerous masterclasses for esteemed guitarists such as Leo Brouwer, Eduardo Fernandez, David Tanenbaum, Jorge Caballero, Zaira

Paul worked with me at my pace and met me at my level. In addition to the lessons about guitar Paul is also very knowledgeable about music in general and has been opening me up to new artists.

"I left a review as many have done at the beginning of my lessons on the site's request. I studied with Edwin for about two years through Skype, and wanted to evaluate the experience after it was completed. Edwin was a very polite and skilled teacher. He taught me many new techniques and different styles of jazz guitar that stick with me still, and which I use every day in my playing. I recommend him to anyone wanting to learn more about playing jazz guitar."
