Brian has been teaching guitar to students of all ages in the Los Angeles area for more than 20 years.

Students of all ages are welcome!

Brian's teaching philosophy, in his own words:

MY APPROACH:
I focus on four areas that I think are essential to being a good music teacher:

* the uniqueness of each student;
* the fact that enjoyment (fun!) maximizes learning;
* the importance of proper technique and an understanding of music theory to build self-confidence;

Although this was my first lesson with Brian, he is a perfect match for me. He has a gentle, docile personality, good humored and very patient. He's especially great with beginners, older students and special needs individuals. In close proximity so he didn't have to travel far. His teaching style, for me, is very effective and he's a very nice person.

With over 4 years of teaching experience, 6 years of gigging and playing the guitar for 14 years, I have cultivated a unique approach to teaching the guitar. I take the time to listen to my students, hear their struggles and dreams and create a lesson plan that is truly individual.

Kathryn has been teaching my 13 year old both voice and guitar. My daughter is just starting out in both and is learning a lot. Kathryn is friendly and has been so great at working with us when my daughter was sick or when we're needing to reschedule. She's been having lessons for a little over a month and her experience has been great. We're looking forward to continuing lessons.
Mary-Clare
Amazing!!! A bright, joyful light!
Thiago
My experience with Kathy has been great. It's been roughly five months and I learned a lot and I'm also much more confident to sing. Learning the right techniques is crucial. Kathy is extremely patient and she adapts the classes to the student goals and aspirations. English is not my first language and she was also always very respectful and patient in explaining everything twice or maybe three times until I get it.

"Guys and Gals, If you or your kids are looking for a great teacher. You have come to the right place. He makes learning fun with his great personality and a giant variety of fun techniques to have you playing the guitar very quickly. When I started with him I really never picked up a guitar. Now I am playing live gigs with my own band and writing my own music. I just recently started singing lessons. I have my first one coming up on Wednesday. If they are anything like learning the guitar with Paul. I can't wait! Thanks Paul, You really have changed the way I listen and now play music!!"
