Fantastic teacher. Aaron is great at identifying where you're at in your guitar journey and applying your own taste and preferences in music to the lessons and what you're learning. He also works a lot on ear training and connecting ear and mind to the instrument. If you're looking for someone who will help you tune your ear to the guitar, help you identify notes and scales, learn the songs you love, and all while learning theory and technique then Aaron is a great teacher for you.
Madeleine
Aaron is a wealth of music theory knowledge. I am an intermediate guitar player with a background in music, and Aaron tapped right into my level and ran with a challenging but approachable lesson tailored to me. The best part is that I know there's so much more he can offer! I look forward to a long, productive, fun, and beautiful mentorship with Aaron! L
Dominick
My lessons with Arron have been extremely beneficial and I recommend him to anyone that is trying to learn or get better at playing guitar. I have been playing guitar for a while now and what I’ve learned the most from Aaron is how to slow down and practice efficiently. He has taught me many different tools for practicing musical scales and has also been able to give me the “why” to all his methods. I’ve noticed so much progress in my playing and I’m so thankful.

As a teacher, I work to ensure your experience is educational and fun. I use a straightforward approach to teaching theory and technique, with a three-part lesson plan adapting to your skill level and interest:

1 Proficiencies: Playing scales, arpeggios, chords, chord inversions, chords with bass lines, chord melody chord progressions, techniques, basic music theory, and more.

2 Reading: Identifying single notes in all positions, reading chord symbols, and reading chords and melody together. Reading rhythms.

3 Song Repertoire: Learning and appreciating songs, understanding the theory used in the song development, incorporating emotions and dynamics into the song, and learning how to apply learned proficiencies to master the songs and add personal improvisational touches to the songs.

Each student is monitored with a checklist that follows the three categories so we can identify strengths and weaknesses as students progress through different musical styles. The checklists help ...

At the age of nine, music started to become a major staple in my life. I took a strong interest in guitar, being shaped by many well-known musical influences. Also expanding my string family, adding violin/fiddle and ukulele at an early age, as well as studying classical piano. I love writing and recording my own music, working with various genres such as Folk, rock, pop, indie, country, alternative, and various Spanish and classical style guitar.

I enjoy adapting my music lessons to the style and genre of music my students love and enjoy learning. In turn, I want to help people find a love and joy for music, just as I have!
