Chris L.

Albuquerque, NM

About Chris

I have studied music for 26 years. Piano was my first instrument and I have taken classical lessons from an early age and studied jazz piano for 14 years. I play guitar at the same level as piano. I play jazz, classical, flamenco and rock guitar; acoustic, electric and 9-string electric. I have studied at University of North Texas, Musicians institute and have a bachelor's of music from UNM. I have a certification in early childhood education and love to teach children, as well as adults of all ages.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am very patient and flexible. I work with the student to desi
gn curriculum that is exciting and engaging for their individual level. Students enjoy studying with me because they can progress quickly if they practice and because I am easy to talk to and work with.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lessons are taught in the music room in the home which includes an 88 key weighted keyboard, 5 guitars, 3 amps, and seating is available. Home includes 3 cats which can be kept separate if needed.

*** Travel Equipment ***
If I go to their house, I expect them to have their own instruments that they practice on during the week, a metronome, a tuner and the music books they are working on.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in jazz, rock and classical music. I usually allow the students or their parents to choose their method books based on their interests and goals.

He has taught me a lot. Lessons are not rushed. He allows me to learn based on my own interests, but also teaches a lot of basics of technique and music theory. The location is convenient to downtown Albuquerque and UNM neighborhood.

Great teacher. Gears lessons towards individual desires of students, while still adding some of his own suggested material. Encouraging, easy to learn from, spends extra time with student when needed and time allows.

My son had played a little guitar before he started coming to Jacob. He was quite bored with the music he was playing and was not at all motivated to practice.
This is no longer the case. Since starting lessons with Jacob, there are days when it's hard to get him to put the guitar down!

Jacob focuses on what my son wants to play. This has kept him interested in his music and progressing quickly. He enjoys his time with his instructor, who is kind and patient and an excellent musician.
.
Jacob has been flexible when we have needed to reschedule on occasion and as a parent, has been a pleasure to work with.

All around, I couldn't be happier with a guitar instructor for a teen boy. I'm sure he would be just as great with any age/gender. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

About Brandon

My students are presented with a foundation that is built on curiosity, dedication, and passion. I teach guitar within the realm of metal, rock, & jazz music, and strive to allow my students to sing through their instrument.

Check out the videos for samples of styles to learn:

Currently, I'm pursuing my Bachelor of Arts in Music at The University of New Mexico, and would be teaching out of Popejoy Hall (or online). The last ten years of my life have been about music, and have led me through a plethora of styles.

Guitar, or more importantly music, is about finding your unique voice; a
nd if you're a beginner just learning the basics, or a seasoned player looking for inspiration, $12 can go a long way!

In the end, its all about having fun, my students and I try to strike a good balance between work and fun; look forward to hearing from you! Feel free to message me with any questions!

Piano · In studio
Annette was our boys' piano teacher for the 4 1/2 years we lived in Germany. She worked so well with both boys, adjusting to their very different styles. Her patient, kind, encouraging style in a relaxed, non-intimidating environment gave the boys confidence and a love for piano. I was always especially impressed with Annette's follow through with a detail or question or technique that came up during a lesson that needed elaboration. She would often go the extra step and seek out a further example or answer a question in further detail after a lesson and email that information to me to share with the boys. I can't express how grateful I am for the gift of music that she has instilled in both boys. She was a wonderful teacher.

Annette has been an excellent piano teacher for my children! They have caught her love for piano. I appreciate her expert level teaching and especially love her patience with them. They really want to do their best for her. My children have taken lessons from her for just about three years and we couldn't recommend her highly enough.
