Private Guitar Teacher

My students not only learn to play the guitar, but learn "why they are doing what they are doing!" I teach all ages and I am very patient. We can work as fast or as slow as you like. I believe lessons should be informative and fun at the same time. I teach each students the basics of note reading, chord theory and scales as these subjects relate to the guitar. I use varoius method books like Hal Leonard, The FJH Music, as well as method books for children.

My 13 year old daughter is taking lessons from Lin and says “she’s a pretty cool lady. I really like her”. That’s a pretty hard compliment to get from a teenager. Lin is fun and has made learning guitar a pleasure and something my daughter looks forward every week. I would highly recommend her!

Wouldn’t be who I am today without K.. thanks for everything and all the memories man.. truly..

"Learning to Play

Alex is a great teacher. He is extremely patient and very good at taking his time to explain the things you do not understand. It's easy for me to express my own concerns as well as ask him questions. I also think his teaching techniques are great. He uses songs of your choosing as well as knows plenty of songs to advance your techniques with the guitar in realistic stages. He is good with constructive criticism. I like his honesty and directness, but he never makes you feel like you can't do it. Alex can spot things wrong with your technique quickly and help correct them. He also promotes a positive environment for those not yet confident in their playing.

I am very happy with Alex as my guitar teacher and feel that I can learn so much from him and I would definitely recommend him to another guitar player."

I have played before but I am learning a different style with finger picking and Raymond is very patient with me and really listens to what I want to learn. On top of that he also has a great personality which makes coming to the lessons easy."

"Damien is the best instructor I have ever had and I took lessons from multiple teachers for over 15 years for piano, keyboards, and guitar. He is extremely knowledgeable, talented, and personable. He has a structured and comprehensive approach to music theory and teaches from a socratic method which I love, although he tailors his approach to fit each student's personality and skill level. I have had instructors in the past who taught by ear and could not increase my knowledge base or skill level in reading music and understanding music theory. Damien's style and approach is driven by his education and experience and is the best I have ever encountered. If you want to just have a little fun learning a few chords and songs, or you want to become an accomplished musician, he is the best choice."
