If you're looking to quickly learn the basics of guitar, I can help you with that. We begin by learning open chords, then move on to bar chords, and strumming patterns. Again, my lessons cater to each individual student's goals and taste in music.

About Jennifer

Very good natured, and easy to take instruction from.
More suited to electric guitar enthusiasts, than acoustic players. I would recommend Jennifer.

Teacher for two years experienced in beginner to intermediate students. I generally start my classes by seeing what the students will benefit the most and start helping the student increase their ability to play the piano using a variety of exercises and having them choose a piece of their choice to work on. If the student wants to learn more than just piano, I'm also a composer that can help them understand more about music and beyond the instrument itself.

About Juan

I am a film composer currently studying in CalArts, California institute of the arts. I have been playing piano since I was 9, and have grown to enjoy teaching it as much as playing. Piano is a fun instrument, with which one can grow to understand music in an amazing way and I am more than happy to

Hey everyone! I spend most of my time touring the world with A list pop artists as guitarist/multi-instrumentalist, but in my spare time I love passing along the gift of music via teaching. I've been playing guitar for half my life, and in addition to guitar I can also teach beginner bass, piano, drums and music production. I've taught all different kinds of students, ranging in age and ability. I tailor my lessons specifically for each students needs, and to match their personalities and interests. Wanna learn how to play a Taylor Swift song? Sick! Wanna learn a blues chord progression? Awesome! Wanna learn how to shred like a Norwegian death metal god? I got you!

About Natasha

I graduated from Berklee College of Music and spend most of my time touring the world with A list pop artists as guitarist/multi-instrumentalist.

Each lesson is tailored to the individual's unique technical needs and musical goals. I do not believe in any "one size fits all" approach, and instead draw inspiration from several pedagogues and methods to find the best fit for each student. While technique is a major emphasis, lessons are always fun and energetic. I have taught beginners through undergraduate music majors. While some of my students go on to major in music and study at major conservatories, others simply take lessons just for fun - to have a creative outlet, participate in orchestra, or simply enjoy music for its own sake. I enjoy teaching everyone, at every age and stage, no matter the reason!

About Nicole

I have been teaching privately for more than 15 years. In that time, I've taught at arts high schools, conservatories, colleges/universities, at music stores, and out of my home. I am active as a performer, and believe that it is critical for teachers to stay relevant in the field. I have perform

Nicole was a Godsend for my adolescent daughter when she started taking lessons with her at age 12. She had had a bad experience with a prior teacher and was losing her motivation to play and practice. Nicole was extremely kind, patient and encouraging yet held my daughter to very high standards. Due to her instruction, my daughter was able to play in some elite pre-professional chamber groups and recently was a prize winner at a Concerto competition. Nicole always had my daughter’s best interests at heart and went above and beyond to provide opportunities for her to excell at the instrument and feel confident about herself and her playing. I highly recommend Nicole for any level of player!

"Once again, the parents aren't allowed to go in with teacher while class is in session. So as the parent I'm not really sure what goes on in the actual class. My daughter likes it, she said's she wants to continue so her father and I will allow her to do another round of lessons. No she hasn't sung anything for us lol but from what I have seen Ms. Wilma seems very nice. The only thing I don't like is the very minimum feedback that is given when my child does come out of the class. L"
