I can teach traditional classical guitar finger picking techniques using a nylon string guitar. I can also teach fingerpicking on steel string acoustic guitar, as well as performing and arranging classical pieces on the electric guitar. I also love to make my own arrangements of classical pieces from other instruments. My personal favorites to perform are J. S. Bach and Heitor Villa-Lobos.

My daughter (9), son (7) and myself are all taking lessons and Cris Is able to adapt for all our learning needs and makes it fun along the way too.
Derek R.
I had my first lesson today. Cris is the real deal. He is an excellent guitar player and was able to coax what little skill and talent I possess into a formidable lesson early on. I'll be booking my Son along with myself and returning. We are blessed to have someone in the Rancho Bernardo/Rancho Penaquitos area like Cris!

My daughters first online lessons and a wonderful experience! Ruben is very engaging, friendly and knowledgeable. He is easy to contact, accommodating and quick to respond to questions. Would highly recommend!
Kevin and Ella M.
My 9-year-old daughter and 11-year-old son have been taking uke lessons for 3 weeks now and they really enjoy Ruben's style of teaching; so do we. He provides a great combination of making it fun while also really teaching them the foundations of music. They are already reading and writing some music and they enjoy doing their music homework. Most important, they are having fun at the lessons and while practicing at home.

Edward first became fascinated with the guitar at the age of fifteen. Before long he was putting bands together and looking for gigs. As time went on, his influences grew to include everything from classical to hip-hop to pop, but the one genre that that made the strongest impact was flamenco. Hi

"Nothing but good things to say about Brendon. Aside from his insane talent as a composer and musician, he was phenom with our son Max. A few thoughts below...

We knew Brendon was the right person to help our son Max on day one with TakeLessons, when we wrote to 4 or 5 potential instructors. The other folks wrote back and just said 'sure, I'm here, happy to help'. But Brendon wrote back with thoughts about the pieces Max needed to learn for his audition, a rough outline of a plan, and shared enough about himself that we knew he had truly 'heard' what we needed were looking for. That kind of thoughtfulness is unique.

Brendon is great with kids, and created instant rapport with Max over the video lessons. Brendon will always spend a little extra time than budgeted, which is appreciated. And his scheduling was flexible which always helps with us busy families. We did a few in person lessons and Max came away inspired - for classical guitar but also for music in general. Max's skills grew throughout, and he never resisted practicing; he looked forward to the lessons and the chance to talk about some guitar-related thing with Brendon.

Brendon isn't a big disciplinarian so after a few weeks I had a little chat with Max about what it means to respect your teacher, even if they seem young and cool and are on video. That's something I think parents need to monitor a little.

Recommended w/o any hesitation. If you have Brendon in mind you're headed in the right direction for sure. -MR"

And I'm kind of picky, since I already have a degree in music and am also a music teacher! He has really helped me broaden my skills as a guitarist and I can highly recommend him as a teacher for all kinds of guitar styles."

"I have been a student of Bill's for almost three years. Bill's teaching is characterized by clarity of expression, high standards, patience and an upbeat and pleasant disposition. He is always clear and direct when explaining the technical aspects of playing- no matter how complex the matter at hand. He holds you (and himself) to a high standard- no shortcuts- you learn to do it right. Yet he is so pleasant to be with that every minute of every lesson is truly enjoyable. Every time I leave I am ready to practice and can't wait to return."

"Ahmad is great. I started with him in November last year and have been seeing him weekly since. He's that perfect blend of very, very smart about guitar+music, but down to earth in his style and methodology. He's also a great guy and makes lessons fun. I discovered Ahmad from the Internet then found out that a close friend had learned guitar from him a couple of years ago. She raves about him. Bottom-line: if you're looking for quality guitar instruction from a genuine and very capable teacher you can't do better than Ahmad."

"From the first day, Ahmad has crafted lessons tailored specifically to my goals and skill set. I already had a decent idea about how to get around the guitar, but I wanted someone to help me get to the next level, to understand the guitar completely. Ahmad is incredibly knowledgable about the instrument and theory, perceptive to learning habits, and overall a fun person to be around. He's also incredibly patient about working around schedules. I can't recommend him enough!"

"Jessie has taught my daughter classical and regular guitar for a couple of years. There are many, many thing I like about Jesse's teaching. One of the things that I like most is that he asks my daughter what she wants to learn and then teaches it to her. He mixes up the theory and it's application with what she wants to learn keeping interest and motivation at a high. Another thing that I like is the breadth of material he brings. His students end up well versed in all types of music and are able to play well known pieces in many different genres. Yet another thing that I like is his creditability. He walks the walk. His group plays regularly. Any doubts that your teenager may have about him can be quickly and easily put to rest just by going to hear him perform. Jesse is a good teacher and I highly recommend him."
