I'm a believer that almost anyone can learn to play music well, and guitar is no exception. It's something which seems difficult at first, but has a series of specific steps (like any instrument) which take the mystery out of it, and get you playing in no time! I love seeing students improve on this instrument and seeing how much fun they have once they begin to play songs they love.

About Colin

Mrs. Esther has taught me piano over the past 9 years. Over those years, I was able to learn a lot about the innerworkings of the piano, both theory and playing. Mrs. Esther carefully taught me piano with both elegance and patience and created wonderful experiences through the community concerts that she holds. Her kindness reached me in times where I was overburdened with both the study of piano and my schoolwork. The 9 years of piano that I spent with her have been very rewarding and an experience that I will continue to cherish as I continue pianoing.

I want students to excel the fastest they can on guitar. Though I know it is important to let students learn at their own pace, I will never cease to challenge them through difficult pieces or exercises. I will develop plans and keep track of progress so that students and I can stay organized and ensure the learning is fluent. I will direct lessons based on what the student wants to learn most and what genres of music they are interested in. I also change the structure of lessons based on how the student learns. The basics I want students to learn from my lessons are basic chords, fretboard knowledge and music theory, finger-picking styles, pick and strumming techniques, left-hand techniques, and most importantly I want to teach students how to listen. I will train students ears through ear training exercises and songs. I firmly believe the better the student’s ears can get, the better the musician they can be. Besides just teaching songs, I want students to understand the theory, ...

We are so happy that we finally found a trained musician to teach my 13 yo son. Now my husband and I are taking lessons from William also. I feel that I finally have found the key to open up my music talent! Lol. William is very dedicated teacher and musician. He is skillful and he knows exactly what his students can do to make progress. Our time with him is very productive. If you want your kids to enjoy learning guitar in an encouraging environment, William is a great instructor. His time is valuable and he makes it worth your time.

William is a great teacher so far. He is also a pleasant person and very flexible with schedule and teaching style to meet students' needs.

My son and husband are taking lessons from William. I am so pleased that we have found a true musician., they seem to learn a lot in a few short lessons. My son starts to teach me guitar. His method makes the lesson easy for me to learn. His enthusiasm makes learning fun and 20 minutes lesson tolerable. I start to like my son more! William has changed my boy after only 2 lessons!

Your lessons will be about you. Understanding that everyone learns differently, I modify the material taught to the desires of each student. Whether you would like to learn how to play your songs, learn a particular style, learn how to improvise, or any other skillset on the guitar, I am trained, experienced, and equipped to meet your goals! Also, following each lesson, I will send you home with detailed notes, charts, videos etc. of what we worked on through a shared Notepad (iPhone) and/or shared Google Drive doc so that you're never left empty handed!

I was referred to JP by a friend and I am so happy with his lessons! I'm a songwriter and he teaches me in a way that makes sense to me and my craft. I finish my lessons feeling inspired and ready to apply everything I've learned so far about the guitar! JP is an awesome instructor!!
Brent
JP has been an amazing guitar teacher for the past few months. His style of teaching makes it so easy to learn during my in person lesson then practice on my own time at home. He’s patient and understanding and works at my pace. I highly recommend JP for anyone that has some guitar knowledge and looking to get better or to the person who’s never picked up a guitar. You won’t regret it.
Mason
JP is a phenomenal teacher/instructor and a musician himself. Has an amazing ear to grab any gtr riff, lick, or phrasing you want from any song you want to learn. He breaks down the theory into sections and steps, making it super easy to learn at your level and pace. He showed me how to find new chords within my progressions so I didn’t have to chase them up & down the neck of the guitar. Totally helped give me more confidence in my performance on stage. I highly recommend him to anyone at any level!
