Modern Metal isn't everyone's thing. That's how I discovered Country Guitar. As a fan of greats like John-5 and Brad Paisley, there are a lot of talented people that can play great guitar in country style.

I do a lot of modern country. Like older Taylor Swift, Brad Paisley, Scruggs and Flats, Luke Bryan and others upon request. Open chords are a big part of the genre as well as Major Pentatonic Scales.

Will do my best to make sure you accomplish your country goals.

I can teach all levels and many styles. I make it easy for you to learn at your own pace so you can achieve your goals and have fun playing music.

About Thomas
Tom has a music degree focused in guitar performance and a combined professional teaching and performance career that spans over twenty years.

Tom began teaching in 1994 and still practices today instructing students of all ages on guitar and bass techniques, as well as music theory.

Tom is very laid back and embraces working at the pace that each of his students feels most comfortable. Lessons are about the student’s ambitions. If it is learning their favorite songs or a deep dive into music theory, jazz improvisation or songwriting it can be covered in strides that seem fit to the student. Books can be used for guidance and a custom lesson plan created that will fit specific criteria desired to be achieved by the student. Remember, practice makes perfect. The more you put in, the more you will get out of it!!

James is an excellent voice teacher. He is very thorough in terms of explaining the concepts behind a proper singing voice (which is something I was missing in my approach to singing). Within just a few lessons with James, I had already gained a deeper understanding of how a singing voice should sound and feel as opposed to a normal speaking voice. He also takes the time to thoroughly answer any questions you may have as they come up during your lessons.

Each lesson is designed on the level of the student's ability from beginner to advanced. Rock, R&B, funk, jazz, blues, POP and country music. I like to use song learning as a vehicle to sharpen your skills. Learning skills through songs is more fun for beginners. More advanced students will work on everything from theory, reading, harmony; and how you can use scales and arpeggios in a number of ways over several different styles of music.

About Stephen
~ Customized Lesson Plan for You. ~

Learning the guitar is a fun, yet, challenging experience. Having an instructor guide you through the process makes learning easier and more efficient. The internet provides a wealth of information but can not interact with you and help your specific needs. Many guitar players get frustrated and give up. Getting the encouragement and expertise of an instructor who has been there before greatly enhances chances of success.

My style of teaching is founded on fun with the instrument and guiding students to real music situations. Many students come to me with an incomplete set of skills. These (self taught) players have several basic fundamental holes in their playing.

It is also important to me that students have a basic knowledge of music theory. This way, they can enjoy the guitar for th
e rest of their life. If you just learn to put your hands in a certain place to play a certain song, you are missing out. If you learn what it is your actually doing, you can apply it. This may be the most important benefit of a private instructor.

What You Will Learn:

​Beginning Students:
In my experience, over several years, I find most beginners are surprised the guitar is so hard to play. Having an instructor to help you past that frustration will lead to a lifelong enjoyment of your guitar in the songs you love.
- Learning the basic chords.
- How to move from chord to chord smoothly.
- Using these chords to play your favorite songs.
- Understanding guitar notation (tabs, chord grids, song books, standard notation).
This way, the skills you learn will last a life time!

Intermediate/ Advanced Students:
This is for the hungry players. You will be given the direction to achieve a high level of musicianship. You will be challenged to reach your full potential.
- Technique drills
- Scale knowledge
- Advanced chords
- Improvisation tips
- Chop Building
- Theory
- Reading
- Composition

Experience & Background:

I've teaching and performing professionally for 23 years.
- One year OCHSA jazz combo.
- Fifteen years performing music clubs, casuals as a solo performer and in a jazz trio.
- Twenty three years teaching individuals and groups.
- Eleven years as Irvine and Laguna YAMAHA Music school instructor.

I've studied with some of the top teachers in California:
- Jim Fagen (classical guitar)
- Erik Halbig (rock, jazz & country)
- Jim Witzel (head of jazz guitar at CSUSF)
- Ron Eshcete (jazz guitar)
- Carl Verheyen (everything).

Stephen is a brilliant and experienced guitar instructor. My wife signed me up the electric guitar lesson with Stephen after my retirement about a year ago. I told him that I had no music background and just wanted to be able to play the 70’s songs I like. The lesson plan is based on my level and my goal. I started the fundamentals and now I can play most my favorite 70’s songs. I enjoy every lesson with him. What I learn in one hour class can fill out the rest of the week. Thank you for making my retired life so meaningful. “It’s never too old to play guitar! “ I would highly recommend Stephen to anyone who wants to learn to play the guitar!

Stephen is a very knowledgeable and professional music instructor. I have been taking lesson at his studio for about 8 months. I go there once a week for my 45 min class and practice 15 min every other days at home. Now I can play the musics I like. Also, during the lesson, he always put the me in the live band situation so I can react to the beats and rhythm from different instruments. Fun!!!!!!!!!

Music is the greatest thing in the world. I grew up listening to my parent's music and began connecting to it at a very young age. By the time I was 12 I was singing and playing along to all my favorite records and fronting my own band. By 15 I was playing live shows with Don Was and Glenn Frey and doing session work in Glenn's studio. I performed at the Panama Jazz festival at 17 with my Jazz band, performed as finalists in the Monterrey Jazz High School competition, and went on to study Popular Music Performance at USC. I write, produce, MD, perform, teach, and do session work for a living.

My passion is sharing the gift of music with others that I carry with the utmost joy and gratitude.

I have a great understanding of where to start with brand new students that makes it easy, fun and gives them a big win and success with even the first lesson.

I have studied with many guitar teachers including Jazz Fusionist Alex Machacek. I teach basic music theory and specialize in shred guitar technique. I teach proper practice to learn any style and any song comfortably and quickly. I'm also super easy going and patient with all of my students. Taking extra time and care to understand them and what they want to accomplish, while guiding them bit by bit to achieving their goals with guitar.

About Dakota
I am excellent at explaining ideas very clearly to my students.

I also have a lot of patience with my students and know where to go with each individual student to give them a big success in every lesson.

I pride myself in teaching students to express themselves with their music and the songs they learn. Expression is one of the most enjoyable parts of music.

A little about me:

I worked for the famous composer David Campbell from 2016-2018 and have been in almost every major recording studio in LA, including Capitol studios, Eastwest studios and Oceanway studios. I've had the great pleasure of working with mega producers Rob Cavallo, Nigel Godrich and more.

I know what it takes to be a great guitarist for personal satisfaction and professionally.

I hope to meet and work with you on your own goals with guitar. I'm certai

Most beginners new to guitar give up within the first week because they either don't know where to begin or they use generic methods of learning (i.e. online videos, books, etc.) Learning and playing guitar is a personal experience, and when you find your style it becomes one of the most rewarding decisions you can make. My approach to teaching is to guide students through fundamentals while making the learning experience fun and finding a sound they can produce that will bring the joy of music from their fingertips.

About Gregory
I am a professional singer/songwriter with a specialty in acoustic guitar and country music. I've recorded in major studios and home-based studios and have a passion for getting more people into making their own music.

I first started to play guitar over 20 years ago, and I still remember how tough those first couple months can be to stay motivated. I'm here to help you learn some fun things which can ease you into playing and keep you or your child's interests.

When I first started playing guitar in middle school, my teacher was pivotal in keeping me engaged and I'm thankful for his influence and use it as a base for the my students.
