I've been playing and teaching guitar for over 30 years. Whatever your goals are, I can help you with them!

About Barbara
Originally from Wisconsin, I was a music student at UW LaCrosse before coming to LA to attend Musician's Institute in Hollywood,(GIT) where I graduated with honors and was awarded a USA Custom Ibanez guitar. I remained in LA working in numerous bands spanning a wide variety of musical styles including blues, rock, country, surf, and even Persian music! With "The California Girls", an all female surf band, I opened for "The Beach Boys" , "The Safaris", "Jan and Dean", "Steppin Wolf"; toured the US playing theaters, fairs, casinos; and played overseas for the troops in Bosnia, Kosovo, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Iraq, Afghanistan, Norway, Germany, the Pacific Islands, and Diego Garcia. Most recently I was a member of the Greg London band, an impressionist with whom I performed in Leicester Square in the West End of London, at Harrah's Re
no and the Las Vegas Hilton for extended runs. I fill in with "ThundHerStruck", an all female AC/DC tribute band and recently did a tour to Afghanistan with them. I also have a band called "Sierra Highway" that performs in the Antelope Valley.
I have studied vocal technique extensively with Robert Edwards, renown vocal coach to the stars (Christina Aguilera, Bonnie Raitt, Sheryl Crow ) and learned to teach his method which is similar to the famous "Seth Riggs" method. I have played piano since early childhood.
I look forward to helping you achieve your musical goals and tailoring your lessons specifically to your needs!

*** Lesson Details ***
I like to combine specific basics about music and technique with material you would really enjoy learning and performing. Each song or piece has several lessons that can be learned from it. If you enjoy the material, you are more likely to practice every day and progress! You will have opportunities to perform at a recital solo or as a part of a group.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Private commercial studio w/ piano, amps, mic, and seating for parents

*** Specialties ***
Guitar is my main thing, personally I like blues/rock.

Barbara was great. I had never played the guitar before, so she was patient with me and her teaching method was such that allowed me to pick up what she wanted me to learn. I have been practicing every day and am looking forward to my next session with her.

I want to help you find your voice. Anyone can play a guitar, but it takes some hard work, determination, and proper guidance to truly sound great when playing one. My curriculum will be determined by your goals, but most everyone will be subjected to some amount of ear training, hand and body posture training, technique, and basic theory. I will teach you to play an acoustic or electric guitar with a pick or with your fingers (or both).

Another often overlooked advantage of having a guitar teacher is having somebody to reach out to for guidance when buying a new instrument. I won't charge you for that, though; I like exploring a music shop as much as anyone else!

About Francis
Hi everyone! I'm a hard-working musician with a background in live performance, songwriting, composition, and home recording. I want to help you perform the music you love, whether you're playing to your family, your webcam, or a 15,000 seat arena. I have been teaching private music lessons since 2007.

I am a graduate of UCSD, where I completed my bachelor's degree in music theory and composition. I have taken years of private lessons, played bass, guitar, and mandolin in local and touring bands, and my music has been featured on at least 7 albums. I want to make your goals accessible, and I want to help you find your sound.

*** Lesson Details ***
I focus on making lessons fun for my students. I emphasize the importance of practicing on your own and building confidence by performing live and/or writing your own songs. I love to hel
p people get better at sounding like themselves.

During lessons from me, you can expect to play, sing, clap your hands, and become completely immersed in the music you love. Whether your goal is to perform in front of an audience, record albums, or just play for fun in your living room, I'll help you make that happen.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music room, seating available, street parking.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I only teach students who provide their own instrument. I am willing to provide a loaner guitar for the week if a student's instrument needs to be repaired or is not accessible for any reason. I also provide homework when necessary :)

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching confidence in performance practices, technique, singing and playing, and good microphone habits for singing, speaking, recording, and songwriting. I teach based on student needs, and I find each student benefits from a different curriculum.

I'm a Berklee College Grad with a B.A. in Professional Music, if you're interested in learning that guitar then I'd love to show you some awesome, fun way to learn these things! Lessons can be at any pace you want.

About Dylan
I'll teach you whatever you want: whether it's crash course music theory, songwriting, guitar technique or just learning a couple pop songs. You can get the same education I paid $80k for at Berklee but WAY less expensive. I'm a professional songwriter, guitarist, performer and recording artist. I graduated at the top of my class with a B.A. in Professional Music at Berklee College in Boston, MA.

My students can expect to steadily improve their technique, theory, chords structure, improv, song list, understand of the language of music, writing abilities, and find music to be fun rather than a chore. We can focus on an intense practice regimen or just learn songs together. No pressure at all, we'll go at whatever pace you'd like to.

I've worked with songwriting legends like Paul Simon, co-written with artists who've toured wit
h Justin Beiber, worked with grammy winning producers, toured U.S., self released two albums and I've had a successful career as an independent musician. I can teach you the in's and out's of the business as well, things like: social media for musicians, ad targeting, finding your fans, and a lot more.

Specialties: Pop, Indie-folk, Fingerstyle, Improv, Blues, Funk, Jazz, Two Hand Acoustic Tapping, Music Theory, Ear Training, Harmony, Live Performance, Social Media for Musicians, Lead Guitar, Loop Pedal Performing.

He will work with a musician striving to find their story in their music, giving that balance of todays artistry and also the basics to enable your own creativity. I highly recommend him.

As a fairly experienced pianist transitioning to guitar, Dylan was great. He gauged what I knew but still broke down the basics of guitar, helping me get the basics of finger positioning, strumming, and transitions, and tying back to the elements that I knew from my years of playing piano.

I had to learn a few tunes on guitar for mother's day, so I called Justin Walker Music. At first, I only wanted to know a few tabs and how to read/play them, but after a couple of weeks, I was learning chord progressions and proper picking techniques. I was provided simple, easy to understand steps that took my playing where I wanted to go and more. I'll continue taking lessons because of the inspiration for growth I've found within.

One of the best out there

Justin is an amazing instructor. After only a few months, he was able to guide me to a place where I could play much more complex music than I ever thought I could. Other teachers I've had may have taken a longer road to present me with the challenges that Justin has presented me with, however a great teacher is not afraid to see their students excel as quickly as possible. Justin has always challenged me to be my best in a positive and supportive way. He comes across as a teacher who genuinely cares about my success as a guitar player and he has the knowledge and ability to help me take steps much more confidently and quickly than I myself thought I could. He has always been patient and extremely encouraging, and I would highly recommend him for anyone who wants to begin playing or wants to improve their skills on guitar.

About Laura
I teach voice, piano and guitar. My Music Degree from Point Loma Nazarene University is in Vocal Performance. I love what I do. I teach children through adults. I have lots of experience in worship
leading for church if that is of interest.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am easy-going, but I expect you to practice. I am thorough in my approach. For piano lessons, I utilize the Alfred method. I emphasize note reading and theory in each genre, whether taking guitar, voice or piano. I am currently using Hal Leonard's Guitar Method books for guitar and a few different things for vocal curriculum. All lessons can be supplemented with what you are currently interested in or working towards. I enjoy helping prepare young people for their performances in theatre arts. Lessons can be combined, for example; if you are interested in both voice and
guitar, you can take a longer weekly lesson and have both subjects covered! Weekly assignments are given and checked to see if done before proceeding to the next step! I do not recommend students come every other week. I recommend one lesson per week.

*** Travel Equipment ***
guitar and books. Student provides their guitar during lesson and for piano, must have a piano or keyboard at home for practice.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in helping young worship leaders hone their gifts. I enjoy preparing people for their musical theatre performances.

I'm an enthusiastic guitar teacher with 4 years of experience. I'm looking forward to teaching beginning musicians of all ages! My teaching style is entirely student-oriented, and I adapt my material based on what you want to learn. I often use my music theory background as a supplement, and occasionally I will give handouts and homework. I am primarily experienced in worship music, but am flexible and diverse enough to cater to your interests. Students will need their own instrument and gear, and a notebook or binder.

About Dillon
Hello and welcome to my teacher profile! My name is Dillon S.

I am a music and art teacher, and I have earned my Associate's degree in Music Education at MDC with a focus on jazz guitar. I have a fairly diverse experience in different genres of music (primarily worship/church music, but also rock, pop, punk/metal, jazz and others). I have also sung and played guitar, drums, and bass in numerous bands throughout the years (currently, drummer/percussionist for The Fortune Tellers in Miami, FL).

I have always had a deep love for art, and am currently working on my Bachelor of Science in K-12 Art Education. I have a particular interest in figure drawing/portraiture (charcoal, graphite, India ink), landscape and still life painting (acrylic and oil paint), and both digital and film photography.

I am hoping to improve my teaching skill
s through this platform and impart knowledge onto others. I am laid-back and a kid at heart, and I find it important to teach with a sense of humor. For the record, I'm also a huge geek. I enjoy video games, superheroes, sci-fi, fantasy, animals (I myself have two cats), board games, cartoons/anime, technology/science... I also love traveling! If you're into something, feel free to talk to me about it, I love getting to know what you're passionate about!

Dillon is an outstanding music teacher who is very good in teaching his students multiple areas of music ( theory, rhythm, notation) in order to take their instrument playing to the next level. I have been a beginner Ukelele student of Dillon for a few months and have seen a significant advancement in my learning and skill playing of the ukelele. Overall, he is a very patient teacher who deeply understands music and takes the necessary time to work on the different areas where he sees opportunity for his students to improve their musical instruments playing.

In my 10 years of teaching experience, I have learned that my passion for teaching rivals my passion for learning and playing. From day one, my students are able to come home playing music while learning essential technique. Everyone has a unique learning style, and it’s my duty to find out what that is and adapt my lessons accordingly. Contact me today to learn how I can help you achieve your academic goals.
Lessons should be FUN, ENGAGING, and about YOU! In my approach we will focus on your goals and help you become the musician you want to be. All experience levels are welcome. It's never too early or too late to enjoy the art of music!

About William
Hey! Welcome to my page future student!

My name is Will. I have been playing guitar for well over 15 years. I've always been a big metal player at heart. When I began my journey with music, I struggled at first and honesty, did not like guitar. WHAT!? It wasn't FUN to take lessons for me. It wasn't until I found my long-term teacher, and still good friend today. Going from frustration to inspiration was a big eye-opener for me into the world of teaching. All it took was one passionate teacher to change literally my entire life. That kind of privilege is something that has driven my career to this day.

To tell you a bit about my experience: I have played in multiple rock and metal bands and have toured the United States multiple times. I have written full length albums and have appeared on a variety of radio stations, websites, strea
ming channels etc. Outside of the rock world, I have also played acoustic and classical guitar for weddings and various promotional gigs, worship bands, and cover bands.

I have studied at college for jazz and classical guitar and have plenty of experience in both reading music and understanding music theory. While it depends on each student's goals, we can go as deep down the rabbit hole for theory as you'd like!

My topics cover a wide range: technique, style, composition, theory, song-learning, reading, improvisation, fundamentals, rhythm, lead mechanics, recording etc.

If you aren't sure on what you want to learn or are looking for the right teacher for your child, I have years of experience working with children and creating lesson plans from the ground up for each student.

I look forward to meeting you and watching you grow as a musician. Most importantly, I can't wait to have some fun playing music together!

Dan is an amazing teacher. When I came to him first, I barely knew how to hold a guitar. He took me under his wings, and almost ten months later, he transformed my playing where I now actually sound like I'm playing a real song.

He is extremely talented, very gifted, and really really good at teaching. He excels in breaking down a concept, or helping me figure out the right way to play a chord, or a lick. He has also proved that he has an amazing ear, helping me learn a song (that he's never heard before), by breaking it down, and de-constructing it.

I am very happy with him being my teacher, and I look forward to learning a lot from him.
