* songs you actually want to play
* how to read music and guitar tablature
* chords and progressions
* music theory
* guitar technique for all styles to make you a well-rounded player
* learn how to write your own tunes and jam in any style with anyone

About Justin

Like most guitarists, I had always wanted to play the guitar as a little kid. Luckily, my parents finally caved to the request (ok ok, incessant begging) and I began my guitar journey at the age of 11. After now 20 years of playing and 12 years of teaching, I am excited to share my experience and t

Justin is a very knowledgeable teacher who brings of experience to this teaching. I highly recommend Justin.
Lisa
Justin is an excellent teacher!! He is a master guitarist, always punctual, very courteous and gives 100% to my lesson. I am learning classical guitar and jazz guitar with him and I am delighted with the progress I've made in just a few months. I am playing beautiful songs and before his lessons I could not play any classical guitar songs at all. Justin tailors the lessons to help me learn the songs I am excited about learning to play. I most highly recommend him as a teacher for any style guitar. Amazingly he also teaches ukulele and mandolin too! He has a degree from Cal Poly in music and guitar and has over 20 years teaching experience. If you really want to learn how to play guitar easily and quickly, take lessons with him!

I've been teaching guitar for 1.5 years and playing for 19 years. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to pick notes and play simple songs and as time goes on you'll be able to strum and play intermediate level songs. You will also learn music theory along the way. I specialize in classic rock and pop music, typically use Hal Leonard Guitar Tab Method books, and have the following tools available for your lessons: acoustic guitar, electric guitar, amplifier, microphone, Guitar Pro software, and Ipad. I enjoy working with students ages 8 and up at beginner and intermediate levels. I look forward to meeting you!

He is a good teacher for kid. He is a good communicator and have a patience to young kid.
Lauren B.
Last year, I had the opportunity to study with Christian at CSU Northridge. Christian is one of the finest musicians I have come across in the years that I have been playing music. Not only does he have impressive skills with the guitar, he also has knowledge in the history of the guitar and music theory. When he was studying at CSUN, I was able to have some lessons with Christian on a baroque piece that was giving me trouble. First, I'd like to mention how patient he was with me when I was frustrated and lost in the music. Also, I was surprised at how much he knew about the music as he explained what was going on in the piece and why. Oh... did I mention that I had some AWESOME results after ONE lesson??? Do yourself the favor and check this guy out!
