Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I've been teaching guitar for about 10 years. I studied music composition in college and put that into my lessons. That means along with teaching guitar, I also teach my students about music theory. This will help the student learn the ins and outs of music writing and make it easier to pick up another instrument. With a greater understanding of music theory, their guitar playing will be a step ahead of other guitar players. Along with learning how to read tabs, guitar short hand, I teach them how to read sheet music as well. I also like to help my students train their ears so they can learn how to listen to something and play along with it. My main goal with all my students is to foster a love of music in them and give them the tools to play and write the music they love.

Learn guitar with published author Lisa Frimberger in a beautiful music studio located near downtown Sacramento!

I teach beginner guitar and specialize in classical fingerpicking style guitar. We will learn basic chords and strumming patterns as well. I also like to analyze the fretboard notes and relationships, and playing different scales across the guitar.

I love to just invent different fingerpicking patterns and spice them up using chord embellishments. This is very fun for learning, as you can easily use this technique to create your own beautiful improvised music.

Along with improvising fingerpicking within chords and scales, I like to teach different classical style songs.
Favorite fingerpicking songs to teach:
- Spanish Romance
- Leyenda
- Greensleeves
- Scarborough Fair
- Malagueña
- Country Dance
- Canario
- Blackbird

I mainly use tabs for learning but I also like to teach some basics of reading music for the guitar for songs such as:
- Ode to Joy
- Mary Had a Little ...

Michelle is a wonderful teacher! She is patient and motivating, and helped me to set specific goals that advanced my classical guitar playing. I now have 4-5 pieces under my fingers that are so much fun for me to play and also taught me new techniques.

I've been learning the banjo from Michelle for the past 18 months. Never touched a musical instrument before. Now have learned a dozen clawhammer tunes and four banjo tunings. Michelle is amazing...so patient but keeps you moving! I highly recommend her.

Whether you want to learn to fingerpick Blackbird by the Beatles or strum basic chords to play your favorite songs, in our lessons you will learn everything from the anatomy of the guitar, how to hold it, to tips and tricks to build up calluses. Learning guitar can be challenging because of the initial learning curve (it can really hurt your fingers!), but in your first lesson, you will be strumming chords, within a couple of weeks (or faster!) you will be ready to play four-chord songs.

Your lessons will be customized to whatever your goals are, whether that be singing while playing guitar, performing, or writing songs.

Teaching Style
I believe first and foremost in supporting and developing what musically inspires a student’s decision to study and play music. In order to fully develop control, musicality and understanding of the music language, it is important to focus on several components including music theory (scale and harmonic structure/function and rhythm), style, ear-training, reading and performance skills.

Expectations of Students
Like any aspect of life, consistency and patience are two very important qualities to posses when working towards a goal. The duration of each practice session is proportional to the level of the student. Learning how to practice efficiently with your instrument is key for adherence and success in obtaining your goals.

"I've been taking acoustic guitar lessons with Jimmy for a year and a half. When I started with Jimmy, I had no music theory background... none. I know I still have a lot more to learn, but now I am familiar with concepts including modes, constructing the diatonic major scale, sharps and flats, the circle of fourths and fifths... the list goes on. Jimmy has even guided me through transposing a chord progression. I could go on, but to summarize, because of Jimmy's teaching style, willingness to answer questions, and music knowledge, I now know a lot about how music works. :-)"

How to Simplify Your Live Guitar Rig for Performances

Playing the guitar is such a fantastic experience. It’s so relieving to be on stage or in your designated practice space and just wail on your instrument. However, one of the difficulties of being a guitar player is deciding what gear is needed for live performances. We often get trapped in thinking that we must have the biggest and loudest guitar rig for shows, accompanied by a pedalboard equipped with 30+ pedals. Don’t get me wrong, there is something extremely satisfying about plugging in …
