Private Electric Guitar Teacher

Need help with the electric guitar? I can help you with everything from beginning technique to advanced techniques such as sweep picking, fast scales/arpeggios, natural and artificial harmonics, hybrid picking, finger tapping, legato, advanced scales and chords, etc.

About Cristopher

If you feel like you're stuck or hit a wall, I can help take your skills to the next level; I can help you improve your technique, learn difficult songs, learn more about gear and gigs and performing, help you learn how to play any chord, key, or scale in any position, or help you learn how to solo, improvise, or write songs or come up with your own arrangements of other songs. I can help you learn to read/play rhythm, notation, and/or chord charts, or help you audition for school jazz band or rock bands, etc. I can also help you with music theory as well as learning modes and how chords and scales all work together, and how you can use chords to build all your scales and musical ideas off of, making it easier to improvise or write songs.

Whether you want to learn to be a guitar virtuoso or you just want to be able to play some songs

for your friends and family, I want to provide you with the best information and tools to help you accomplish your goals. I believe in trying to get the most out of the minimum - I want you to get the most benefit out of the time you spend, regardless if you are practicing for thirty minutes or for eight hours.

*** Background ***
I have taught guitar lessons for almost 20 years; I also can teach music theory and
composition, as well as beginning keyboards, percussion, and voice. I also gig professionally with
varying bands, as well as being hired to perform for weddings/events.

I began taking piano lessons when I was six years old, but switched to guitar lessons at age ten. I also have a BA in music composition from UCSD.

I can teach all styles of guitar from electric and steel string acoustic to classical/flamenco as well as bass guitar, and I can teach all styles from rock/pop to jazz to blues to classical to country

*** Lesson Details ***
I want the student to have fun with music, but I believe fundamentals are important too. Some schools focus on a "song first" approach, and while I prefer learning songs as soon as possible, I also believe learning some fundamentals will help avoid learning bad habits that can be difficult to break down the road. That being said, I try and be as flexible with the student as possible, as I know we all have different goals and amounts of time that we can dedicate, but I believe that even if someone just wants to learn some basic guitar playing, that a little understanding music theory and fundamentals will help them go a lot further.

Regardless, the student should be able to learn the music they want to play, and I will go out of my way to try and find/learn songs that will keep you interested. I will even transcribe or write my own arrangement if I can't find a suitable one, or to make a simpler version that the student can learn.

I recommend that my students practice at least thirty minutes a day if they want to see consistent progress, although in the beginning they may not be able to practice that much until they develop calluses on the fingertips. Of course, if they can practice more, that would be great, but I understand that with everything else going on, it isn't always possible to practice every day or for everyone to put the same time into it.

ALLERGY WARNING: I have cats at my house, so if you want to travel to my location, it could be an issue if you have cat allergies.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Guitars, guitar amplifiers, music stands, computer/audio workstation for recording and notating/printing music, microphones, mixer, studio monitors, etc.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Guitar, amp when needed, music/paper, possibly a music stand

Russ is a truly exceptional individual and very knowledgeable in all aspects of music theory, production and the industry. Not only is he an great at what he does, but he can also relate and impart that knowledge onto others - a skill that is surprisingly rare among high-caliber performers. The price per lesson seems higher than average at first glance, but I feel that the speed and amount of knowledge you acquire per dollar is actually lower than that of other instructors. Really.

He is also active in the industry, so the skills he teaches are current.

I take lessons with Russ online through Skype for EDM production in FL Studio. He is always punctual and promptly communicates if anything comes up. His teaching style carefully balances the need to provide guidance, while allowing freedom for individual artistic development. Every week, I start a composition or track analysis project that applies what I've learned in previous lessons, and I will submit it to Russ to discuss things that went well and things to work on in the future. In this way, you are not just being lectured, but you are actually learning to collaborate with an exceptional musician. I've personally experienced how constant application and feedback facilitates rapid learning.

He certainly is a serious musician, but that doesn't mean he doesn't have a fun personality. He is engaging and inspirational.

I would, without reservation nor hesitation, highly recommend Russ to anyone who is interested in professional music production.

Private Electric Guitar Teacher

Axe wielders unite! I have been playing electric guitar for the past 17 years in a variety of styles ranging from classic rock to jazz.

About Jeff

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 students can expect to improve from week to week, with an ever growing understanding and appreciation for music. My teaching experience allows me to be aware of how students improve their playing with an emphasis on consistent progression and smart milestones that give students a feeling of accomplishment that minimizes frustration.

I tailor my lessons to the students skill level/interests. If you just want to have some fun learning to play chords, THAT’S OK! If you want to delve deeper into diatonic harmony, half diminished chords, and moda

l interchange, then let’s get down on it!

Some of the styles I regularly teach: Rock, Blues, Indie, Folk, Alternative, Jazz, Raggae, R&B, Country

I teach lessons to all ages.

If any of this sounds interesting to you, don’t be shy! Send me a message, I can’t wait to help you become a better musician!

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!

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.

I personally have not had a guitar lesson from Jameson, I'm a drummer myself, but I wanted to say what I know. I've seen this fella play many, many times, and I know those that taught him when he was younger. He is an excellent guitar player and a super good dude. He comes from a long line of musicians and educators in his family. I'm certain he would be an excellent choice as someone from whom to take lessons.

Electric Guitar Reviews

Patrick
"Ryan's method and personality really clicked with my son. We definitely picked the right teacher!"
Dr. K
"Dave is an awesome instructor who truly understands how to reach an adult learner like me. I have about 9 years experience playing acoustic guitar and was
worried about making the jump to electric. Dave is teaching me many of the steps I missed or thought I could work around. His knowledge of music theory, and more importantly, his ability to relay it to me in a practical/attainable manner has been invaluable. I've had several teachers before but Dave is really making it click. Also, I appreciate his approach to web-based materials so that I know exactly where to find answers outside of our sessions. I'll be a client as long as he'll have me and intend to have him teach my son guitar when the time is right!"

"I have been taking electric guitar lessons for a few months. I learned a lot in those few short months. He has a lot of talent and is a great teacher."
Alex
"Headline: Jared is amazing teacher.
Jared has excellent knowledge of music foundations and music theory.
Knows styles and genres, knows not only how to
play but create too... And how this style was born.
He helps to build habit to do things right - I'm talking about technique - or, in other words - how to use your hands!
Same time he's extremely patient.

I'd like to recommend Jared for everyone who want's to learn play guitar (don't look at your age), his teaching approach works great, because he is teaching you and adjust classes for you."

"Jerry's a great teacher with a lot of patience. He's easy to connect with and always makes the lessons fun."
Paul
"Going back over a decade, I bought my first real guitar from Greg, an 80s Avila Rhoads. Over the years that followed, Greg taught me quite a bit in the w
ays of repair/maintainence as well as theory/sound scultping. The man is truly an inspiration. From the day his old shop opened, to now, Greg has always been a great teacher."
...
JADEN
"Donnie is an excellent teacher. He a good sense of picking up on parts that may be difficult for a student and working out a new way or technique to learn
it. He is very patient."
...
Amy
"My daughter (now age 8) has been taking lessons from Chris for over a year now. He has taught her so much already and she is always eager to learn more! H
