Private Guitar Teacher

Hello! I’m Jeff, an experienced guitarist with 15 years of live performance experience and 7 years of teaching experience. I pride myself in my ability to make lessons as fun and informative as possible.

I customize my lessons to the student depending on their skill level/goals. So whether you want to shred solos, understand songwriting, or just want to be able to strum through your favorite songs, I can help you get there!

I like to find fun ways to teach songs and link it together with music theory, so that my students can play music as well as understand it. This can help you to figure out songs on your own in the future.

I specialize in teaching Blues, Jazz, Rock and Fingerstyle. All ages welcome!

Please message me if you are interested.

I am a professional guitarist and songwriter for one of the most renowned San Diego live bands. I have been teaching lessons for the last seven years and have performed professionally for 12. I currently have around 30 students at a local music school and play live several times a week. Guitar

My daughter loves her lessons with Jeff. He is a very skilled guitarist and makes it fun to learn. He is able to teach her quite a bit in the amount of time she has with him. She looks forward to her lessons and enjoys practicing what she’s learned in between.
Charlotte
Jeff is a colleague of mine and we’ve worked closely together both in a teaching setting and performance setting. Not only is he a killer performer and player, he’s also a really great teacher. He knows his stuff, is great with kids and adults and really inspires his students. I’ve watched countless students flourish with him as a teacher. Couldn’t recommend him more!
Phil
Jeff masters the balance of professional knowledge and a great, laid back demeanor. He delivers information in a way I can understand and inspires me to push myself to be the best musician I can be. I highly recommend working with him, you will make tremendous progress if you follow his practice recommendations.

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.
Elizabeth
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.

What makes music lessons unique with me is I have experience in technique, theory and creativity. I have been a musician and teaching artist for over fourteen years. Specializing in helping the beginner start. My teaching philosophy is to create an individualized lesson plan for each student, based in theory, technique and student goals with an emphasis on creative expression and empowerment. Music is a language based on listening and creative expression.

Kelli is great with our son - he always looks forward to his lessons. She is a pleasure to work with.
KimberlyB
Awesome teacher for our child and then teen. Kelli also became a trusted adult friend and mentor. Our daughter had been frustrated by lessons before we found Kelli who helped our daughter explore music joyfully and with discipline and become a technically proficient musician who composes and performs with confidence. She also taught her singing and composition. Irene released her 3rd album of original songs at the age of 21!
Melissa
Kelli has been amazing with my quiet, shy teen. She connected with him immediately, pushes him just the right amount to keep him learning and growing as a musician, but never so much that she pushes him away. She is very gentle and kind and encouraging. I love that she always does a little freestyle with him at the end of every lesson and his learning is not exclusively from books. On top of being a great teacher, she is a lovely human.

Online Guitar Teacher

I have been teaching guitar for 1 year and my students have been able to create and write their own songs, play in bands, and perform out. Within the first few lessons, you will be able to learn how to form and learn chord names and as time goes on you will be able to play full songs. I specialize in genres such as pop/rock/folk and provide beginner level books for students to work on. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and cannot wait to meet you!

Neguine teaches piano to my two children, ages 8 and 6, and she’s been wonderful. She comes to our house and immediately the house is a calm friendly place to learn music. She’s patient with my kids who love piano but are still little, and she has a good sense of humor when they want to try something a little quirky. They also have been making great strides with sightreading, and their eagerness to learn more has only increased. Neguine also does not rush the kids: If a child needs to repeat part of a lesson for another week as she is good about making sure kids reinforce what they’re learning, which is something I appreciate, and my kids have learned to appreciate that too. I highly recommend her!

I am so thankful to have found Marcus as my bass instructor; he is the exact type of teacher I was looking for. His training and love for music were evident upon first meeting him. I have learned so much in the short time I have been taking lessons. He is a very patient and passionate teacher.
Tyler W.
All around wonderful teacher

Marcus is quite the gifted teacher. By far the best I've had the pleasure to aspire under. He is very easy to understand, and doesn't overwhelm you, taking time on the little things (the most important). He creates an atmosphere that is encouraging to learn in. We all know those teachers that create a stressful environment that inhibits progressive learning, as well as frustration in yourself. Marcus is certainly the opposite. He is also quite easy to communicate with--Creating lesson plans, setting goals, etc... In summation, a professional and a friend I would recommend to anyone and everyone.

He makes learning the guitar so comfortable. He makes things easier to review and doesn't mind going over things you may have forgotten. If I could, I would get everyone I know to take lessons from him. I couldn't ask for a better teacher!"

"My son has never played a musical instrument so I wasn't sure how this would go, but Christopher has really connected with him. He came home and actually practiced during the week! And Christopher always comes out after the lesson and gives me a little update which matters to me as a mom. I also appreciate how he doesn't just boot him out the door at the end of the lesson. AND my son is actually talking about music! Definitely learning more than just some chords. Good instructor who obviously loves and respects music. :)"

"This guy can help you be the guitarist you have always wanted to be, especially if you are just starting. He’s one of the most intuitive players I’ve ever heard and he is an amazing teacher. AND, he’s a riot.

Guitarists who tour with famous acts are the best of the best.
This doesn’t mean they can actually teach. In this case, Corey spent years touring with Motown and rock artists and built a large following of loyal students as well.

From all his years of playing, Corey developed a killer teaching method. And it works. His students learn to have a really good time with their music. He uses his outrageous sense of humor to make you feel comfortable and empowered, at every session.

It’s cool to learn from a 20 year old. There is also a lot to be said for learning from guys who have been playing a long time.

I am a music teacher (keyboard) as well. If you want a great experience learning to play guitar, Corey is your guy. You will have SO much fun!

How do I know this? I used to tour with him and I’ve known him for many years. If you get to study with Corey, you’ll be glad you did.

Tips for Open Mic: 3 Ways Guitarists Can Shine

Guitarists, are you ready to hit the stage at a local open mic? Polish your performance with these tips from guitar teacher Samuel B.... Performing (like songwriting) is a craft at which any dedicated musician can excel. It requires no prerequisites – only the desire to share your talent and creations.
