I have been studying country guitar since 2005, playing professionally as a country guitarist since 2007 for nationally acclaimed acts, such as Paulette Carlson (of Highway 101 fame), & Doug Allen Nash (America's #1 Johnny Cash tribute). In our lessons we will cover many techniques techniques, such as chicken picking, using a slide, capoing techniques, performing double- & triple-stops, soloing strategies, etc. We'll also look at how to achieve good country tones, looking to the great players of the genre for examples to follow.

About Alex
Hey, my name is Alex. I'm a multi-instrumentalist (guitar, bass, Oud, bouzouki, keyboards, voice, drums, flute, etc.), composer, performer, recording artist, arranger/orchestrator/transcriber, recording engineer/producer & music educator.

I graduated from the University of St. Thomas "Cum Laude" in 2011 with a Bachelor's Degree in Guitar Performance, with minors in Music Production & Composition. While attending St. Thomas I served as the Music Theory tutor, as well as the live sound/stage/light/recording technician for student & faculty recitals.

I have been playing professionally & teaching for over a decade. My passion for music is something that I love to share with anyone else who feels inclined to make music. My goal is to share the skills & knowledge I've acquired throughout my experiences with those willing to learn & dedic
ate themselves to the craft of making music.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am an experienced gigging musician in most major genres of music: classical, jazz, blues, rock, funk, folk, metal, acoustic fingerstyle/slap, instrumental rock, "shred," pop, world music, electronica, etc. & feel comfortable conveying the techniques, approaches & idioms to a student by breaking them down into digestible components, while making these new ideas relatable to material they are already familiar with.

In the end, I want the student to learn what they're most interested in learning. I'm here to answer any questions they may have & with my experiences, I feel confident that I will be able to either answer these questions or point them in the right direction. Some topics covered:

Scales/modes
Ear training
Instrument-specific techniques (ie bending, tapping, sweep picking, etc.)
Songwriting & Composition
Arranging & Orchestrating
Sight-reading
Improvisation
Chordal theory & how to read charts
Practice routines & approaches
Instrument maintenance
Instrument-based gear (guitars, amplifiers, effects, picks, slides, capos, etc.)

The student will learn at the pace they set for themselves & can only get out of it the amount of effort they put forth. I expect my students to practice on a regular basis (however brief each session may be). Consistency is key for progress to be made, & if they hold up their end of the bargain, the payoffs will be quite substantial!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Practice amplifier, tuner, music stand(s), guitar picks & cables.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide guitar neck paper. I expect the students to have their own instrument & any materials they may need to achieve the goals they've set for themselves (such as a weekly notebook).

*** Specialties ***
Progressive rock, classic rock, blues, jazz, funk, disco, classical, acoustic fingerstyle/slap, flamenco guitar; music theory, sight-reading, composition, songwriting, film scoring, music production.

With each one of my students, I take into account how much time they are willing to practice, what genres interest them, and what learning style works best. I then come up with a structured lesson plan that is specifically catered to their needs.

If you have any other questions, feel free to contact me. Look forward to hearing from you soon!

About Jonah
Learning to play the guitar is one of the most rewarding experiences you'll ever have. Whether this is your first time picking up the guitar or you've been playing for years, I'll make sure your lessons are structured and paced in a way that's specifically catered to your goals.

I've worked with dozens of students of all ages over the last seven years and seen each of them achieve major breakthroughs and discover/rekindle a passion for music.

If you're interested in getting started, I'd love to hear from you! I teach out of my studio in Culver City but am available for in-home lessons as well.

So far we have had 3 lessons with Jonah. He has been patient and friendly with my daughter who sometimes gets distracted and difficult. He has been able to keep her engaged and interested. And after only 3 lessons, he has taught her how to play one of her favorite songs. So far he has been fantastic.

I've been taking guitar lessons with Jonah for a few months now and it s great!! I'm learning sooo much. Whether you've never played guitar or EVER played guitar he is a super knowledgeable teacher. It is so enriching and worth it. Let's face it, the year has been stressful. My weekly lesson gets me grounded just by playing my own beautiful music. Anyway, thanks to those who've posted and recommended Jonah. I'm A BELIEVER or should I say "JONALIEVER?"

I started playing guitar at age 10 but had let it go over the past couple decades. Eager to re-learn the instrument, I recently started taking lessons with Jonah Rosenthal and he's fantastic. Exactly the kind of teacher I was looking for - thorough, creative, encouraging, and most important - patient. I can't recommend him highly enough, for someone just starting out on the guitar or a lapsed player like me.

Hey there!
My passions are technique and accuracy; by perfecting technique comes a deeper understanding of theory. I have lots of teaching methods that will encourage you to play your favorite songs and styles with the sounds you like.
I'll focus on the very basics of guitar theory in order to get to a higher level of understanding music theory.
I will challenge you! We will have lots of fun and you will see, hear, and feel your own improvements with my teachings.

About Shai
If you are fascinated about guitar technique and awesome weird sounds that you can do with your guitar, you will like having lessons with me.

I began as a classical guitar player, studying traditional classical pieces and applying them to my guitar. During that time I began to explore and became drawn to rock music, virtuoso guitarists, and heavy metal. My fascination with the electric guitar, the techniques, the speed and all the things that comes with it are still pulling me in.

Later on in life I fell in love with Flamenco, specifically Paco De Lucia.
I learned his songs and combined it with my own music while studying fusion and finger picking styles; every style I liked, I learned, I mastered, but I know, as much as I teach, I also learn.

Today I play in LA and Israel, I produce projects, record guitar tracks and songs, and teac
h at my studio or online.

As a teacher I will challenge you! I will give you multiple exercises and lots of homework. Over the years, my students have won guitar contests, gotten into successful bands, and are touring around the world. If you are willing to work hard, you will get better! You will see, hear, and feel the difference in your playing. I'll show you the way and will be with you step by step.

Looking forward to meet you!

About Greg K.

My guitar lessons are a fun loving and educational experience that I've been teaching for 20 years!! I make the learning process of reading music easy!! All lessons are custom fit to the specific needs and wants of the student. I performed all over the world! PRINCE donated to my music institute !!! Sounds like your wanting to get into music ! I've been playing the guitar along with several other instruments for years! I have experience in that field as I went to Berklee College of Music in Boston to study and have a Degree from Ohio State University.

I've taught at the college level here in the U.S. and at the University of Salzburg in Salzburg, Austria , bringing high school and college students to study for one month performing classical, jazz and folk music and having my students perform at local venues. What a blast for the students!!

If your interested in a serious learning experience and having fun doing it, please give me a shoutout !! Greg Koss/Executive Director/ Koss

About Greg
The most important thing in teaching privately is having a solid communication between teacher and student. Patience is the essence in establishing that rapport.
I tell parents when they start their kids with music lessons , that I will guarantee that they will practice and learn. Three months later, they come back to me and tell me that their kids are practicing without them having to be told, and that their ready for recital. I have 30 years of teaching experience that helps me communicate with all levels of students.

Everyday I get parents that walk into my institute and tell me, Mr. Koss , my kids have been taking lessons (at another place) for the last two years and my neighbor kids just started with you two months ago, and my neighbor kids are already playing better then my kids, so can we quit wasting time and money and sign
up with you!!

If your interested in a serious learning experience and having fun in the process, please give me the opportunity to enrich your life with the language of the human race.........the language of music !
