Private Guitar Teacher

Hi I'm Andrea, professional guitarist and music producer based in Los Angeles, CA.
I provide classic and electric guitar lessons.
My genre range from classical to rock music.
I'm degree in classical guitar at Conservatory G.B. Pergolesi in Fermo - Italy in 2009, Music Therapist in 2016, certified as "Independent Artist" program at Musician Institute in Hollywood, CA and as Logic Pro X operator granted by Apple on June 2020.
I was mentioned by "Scream Horror Magazine" as the best emerging horror artist of 2020 with my instrumental solo project "Candyboy".
My approach to the guitar will be very practical and unconventional. The lessons will never be the same but I will try every time to bring out the personal characteristics and the natural musical inclinations from the students so as to provide a personalized service for each one. The aim and purpose of the lessons will be to entertain the pupil with the kind of music in which he feels most at ease.

"Learn the rules like a pro, then break them as an artist" - Pablo Picasso

As a music producer, mix engineer and artist, I understand the need for proficiency as well as the artistry. My approach to teaching is customized to each individual as we are not all the same. I pay close attention to how each person learns and work with what the student can excel in. When needed we will do drills or work on theory or break down your technique to overcome any obstacles. With my industry expertise, I can help you become a proficient musician and help develop your style and artistry.

I look forward to working with you!

About David

I am a multi-instrumentalist, music producer, and mix engineer who works with artists at varying levels developing their skills, creativity, and music. Over the course of nearly 2 decades playing in bands and working in music production, I know the skillset and mindset necessary to perform at a pro

great experience for my daughter. David was very knowledgeable and supportive! Highly recommend
Kimberly
I'm re-learning the piano with David and he has changed my relationship to music for the better. After only a few lessons with David I've gotten a greater understanding of music theory than I had in my few years of early piano training. He is patient and flexible with his style of teaching. If it's taking me awhile to understand a concept he's good at explaining it more clearly. I definitely recommend him for learning the piano!
Christian J.
David is a highly skilled multi-instrumentalist and producer. I was introduced when he recorded an EP for my band and since then, we've spent many an evening talking about performing, recording, teaching and making music. He is kind, patient and extremely knowledgable about his craft. I always learn something new, interesting and immediately applicable to my playing when I work with him. I've had the privilege of sharing the stage with some of his students and they have always been exceptionally professional and prepared. I highly recommend David for lessons in whatever discipline you request - the crossover knowledge from all of his experiences will be invaluable to you.

I want to have you walking out of the lesson happy, and excited to go home and practice some new material. With me you'll learn about guitar, but you'll also learn about music and how playing can help you in life (perseverance, basic math foundations, etc.)

I have been a professional performing musician and music educator for over 10 years. I have been playing guitar since I was 8 years old, and have played in almost any style and situation you can think of. I’m a huge believer in the power of music. There are so many great reasons to want to learn to play, or improve your playing, and I’d love to help you with whatever yours is! I will custom tailor your lessons to enjoyably reach your goals (and will help you figure out what those goals are if need be), while developing a strong foundation in music theory and proper technique. I can't wait to start helping you on your journey!

Had lessons with Gabe for many years. I continually use things I learned during our lessons and definitely feel my love of playing guitar was solidified while he was my teacher! Have play nearly every day since then (almost 9 years ago?) I can still play Out of Nowhere from memory and hold my guitar differently/sit differently/pick differently because of him. Recording an album now and have him to thank for my skillzzzz :)

Gabriel is awesome! Extremely patient and thorough.

The Best YouTube Videos to Learn Country Guitar

When you're learning guitar, it's fun to explore different types of music. Playing country guitar is fun and relatively easy to learn when you focus on easy country songs. Great county songs generally have a slow, easy pace and a memorable melody and chorus. This makes it easy for you to understand how the songs are supposed to sound, and helps you to play them correctly. Basic Song Structure Whether you're playing country music or another style of music, you will learn the same basic song str …

8-Year-Old Girl is Gnarliest Guitar Shredder Ever

I'm willing to bet that "playing like a girl" will stop being an insult within this little lady's lifetime! At just 8 years old, Lisa-X is able to play rapid fire metal solos that will melt your face off and blow your mind. She's smaller than her guitar, but she sure knows how to make it sound big and mighty. Plus, the sweet grin she gives the camera as she's bending a note around 1:46? Priceless!

Do You Have The Right Strings On Your Guitar?

Each year the CMT honors country music stars at their Artists of the Year celebration - 2011's honorees included Brad Paisley, Jason Aldean and Kenny Chesney.  Before they were stars, however, they had to work up their guitar skills from the very beginning. Of course, if you'd like to be the next musician in line for country stardom, you'll need to keep your guitar at your side.  Ideally, you should have already found the perfect guitar (or even better, maybe one of these.) Perhaps you've m …
