Joe taught my 13 year old son.

On the lesson side, he brought a great mix of fundamentals (scales, etc.) and keeping my son really engaged by also teaching him tunes he wanted to learn.

On the logistics side, he was equally perfect: great communicator, never late, personable.

A nice guy, great player/teacher, and professional: I can't recommend him highly enough.

Successfully teaching current students with clear, concise lessons.

All of my current students have developed confidence and enthusiasm to learn all materials presented in an easy to comprehend format.

Each student learns at different levels so all lessons are customized to challenge them but also insure they learn and retain all materials presented to them.

Currently have 16 students ranging from beginners to advanced level.
When selecting a teacher, make arrangements to meet in person to review short and long term goals of learning a musical instrument. Pricing should only be used as the last criteria before making a final decision. It's important to insure your instructor is patient and willing to challenge students to setup a practice routine that will fit their current schedule.

If a student needs an instrument, have instructor give recommendations based on the musical styles they are interested in learning.

Students often ask how long it will take to learn to play a Guitar.

Alejandro is a great instructor, really knowledgeable and motivational. I started lessons with him as a beginner and I have made a lot of progress.

Alejandro is a marvelous teacher of music, the guitar specifically, to my 3 grandchildren every Saturday and now for getting onto a year. They love it and are learning ever so much! He is a most talented musician, himself, and has a way of transferring all of that to the 2 boys and my granddaughter. He is reliable and punctual and a treasure to have the opportunity to have him teach the children. I studied the piano for 15 years when I was young, so know a lot of what I speak

Like any good teacher should be, Alex is patient and very instructive. He can cover a variety of musical styles and ability levels. I would recommend him to anyone.

Do you want to learn how to play your favorite songs? How about write your own songs? How about learn to be a member of a band that can write, perform and record quality tunes? If so, I'm your man.
I've been playing the guitar for 18 years, and also play bass guitar, double bass, and mandocello. As such I have a solid foundation of theory, technique and ability that I can transfer to you, from which you can take off.
I look forward to working with you!

I will help you understand the guitar and how music works. I'll teach you chords, riffs and strumming patterns that will lead you to play songs very soon. I only teach the basics, which is the most complicated part, because after you learn how guitar and music work, you can progress on your own easily.

About Abraham

Hi guys, I am Abraham, I am 18 years old but I have a lot of experience teaching Spanish. First of all, my native language is Spanish and that's a great advantage, but my experience comes from tutoring classmates, teaching my own family, and being my teacher's assistant for a couple of years, which

"Amir is a very good guitar teacher. I play classical guitar and I wanted to also learn Flamenco. Amir is specialized in this art-form and passionate about it. He has a lot of patience, and explains the concepts clearly. He also looks carefully at every aspect of my playing, pin-pointing and correcting errors I make that otherwise I would not be aware of. He is always ready to answer questions and insists that I play that piece of music very well, before going further. After only a few weeks with Amir my flamenco started to sound very well, and I am confident that soon I will play at the speed and accuracy that this music form demands. I look forward to many more great lessons with Amir."

"Jeff is a very experienced instructor and can immediately pinpoint your strengths and weaknesses. He chooses songs that suit your ability, but always adds something to each lesson to push you to the next level. I've only had three lessons so far, but I'm surprised at how much I'm already able to play. I had a lot of reservations going in to these lessons because of unsuccessful attempts to learn guitar in the past. All I can say is that I am really glad I chose Jeff for an instructor. He really knows his stuff and will bring out all the potential you have."

"I first met Alex a long time ago when we were attending McNally Smith College of Music. Right off the bat, Alex impressed me with his ability to sightread and his dedication to his instrument. What started as a friendship quickly developed into a study partnership and then a learning opportunity that was of great benefit to me as a guitarist.

Alex spearheaded the forming of a Sight Reading Club and he was it's head instructor. Every week we would get together and work on our chops; very quickly I could see how valuable he was as a teacher and guitar coach. He helped me stick it out during the tough sessions and had the drive to sit patiently as I worked something out in my own time.

I would highly recommend Alex for his patience, persistence, punctuality, and (most importantly) Passion for teaching music. He is a fantastic instructor who I enthusiastically recommend to anyone looking to improve their ability to play the guitar!

Oh and BTW, he's a great blues player - just check out his videos!!!"
