Having played hundreds of gigs and recorded thousands of hours on countless records, from the famed Abbey Road Studios in London to the Village Recorder here in LA, I have a vast body of experience of playing in all styles to help you with the particular skill you want to advance in.
Everyone has their own style with guitar, it's a very personal instrument in that regard. The key is understanding what my students want to achieve and helping them get there in their own way

I've been playing guitar for 17 years and teaching for 8. In my teaching experiences so far, my students have gone from little or absolutely no experience, to playing their favorite songs in just a few short weeks. I will work with you to set goals and will customize lessons to work toward accomplishing them.

Becca is an excellent teacher. She is very patient and explains things very well. She's also prompt and communicative and easy to work with on scheduling.
Tommy C.
Based on our first lesson, I would highly recommend Becca for a teacher of young kids. She came to the class prepared, was very patient with my son, and left him wanting more and with something to work on. It was a very good experience.

I can teach the basics of playing guitar to any beginner students who are looking to pick up the instrument. We will go over proper playing technique, start building a knowledge of essential chords and progressions, learn scales, cover the fundamentals of music theory, and begin learning some standard repertoire.

I want to focus on getting students to learn how to play by ear, giving them the learning tools necessary to be able to play the favorite songs they hear without having to find the correct tab if it's even available. Some things especially solos might be to difficult even for advanced players but almost anyone can find that root note after spending some time with me! I always want to make my lessons as fun for the student as possible by helping them learn their favorite songs, even songs that don't have guitar. I've found playing along to Rap & Hip Hop songs are so much fun to play along to, and a perfect way to practice fine tuning the ability to learn by ear.

About Brandon

Creating a fun environment and showing student it’s not very difficult to learn a song by listening and applying the learning tools to help break down a song by sections. I will also teach and show how you can add your own guitar parts that sometimes makes the song sound even better, this seems to

My kids (ages 10 & 12) have had such a wonderful time learning with Noah. He is patient, kind, and encouraging as well as knowledgeable. He does a great job with beginners -- they are learning so many skills each week. And it has been such a blessing to us that he comes to our home!
Kevin
My son Gavin took lessons with Noah last year and as a result found a love for music! Noah was able to introduce subject matter in a unique and personalized way which allowed my son to gain knowledge and skill quickly.
Teressa
Noah was a fantastic teacher. He taught my daughter basic guitar lessons, but threw in composition, theory, ear training, and everything else in between. She's 9 years old and is able to write her own music and play all her favorite songs thanks to fun, engaging music lessons!

"Edwin is an Awesome Guitar Teacher !!

Edwin is really great and nice as a teacher. He has great skills in understanding what we know and what we want, and he teaches to the potential with much patience. His music ability is excellent and motivates us to learn more.
He is pleasant and makes us feel much comfortable while learning. I started of to learn guitar with zero music knowledge and in no time Edwin made me feel confident about what I learn and what I could."
