Private Guitar Teacher

I've taught hundreds of lessons, over the past ten years. I have written, recorded, and produced my own songs, performed solo, and with bands. I have over 35 videos, and many of them are tutorials. I am sure I can teach and inspire you. Would you like to learn how to read music, or simply play your favorite songs? Or, perhaps you'd like to understand music better in general. Of course I can teach you scales, music theory, songwriting, and improvisation.

About Justin

I am a Music Composer, Songwriter, and Producer. I like to use the guitar a lot to write songs. I like to incorporate music theory, composition, and songwriting into lessons. We can begin to develop aspects of how to create songs and sing to things that you write. We will go through learning the string names, note names how to read music and understand rhythms. We will learn scales, arpeggios, and playing music by ear. I can teach students that are completely new to the instrument.

I specialize in flamenco guitar, one of the most challenging styles of guitar playing. The techniques and fundamentals of flamenco are valuable resources for any guitarist, regardless of genre or style. While everything is taught through the filter of flamenco, students will gain a wealth of knowledge applicable to the guitar in general.

One can expect to start by developing a full technical routine aimed at developing stamina, strength, precision, and speed. All fundamental techniques will be introduced. Rhythm will be emphasized throughout. Harmony studies will be introduced where appropriate. Repertoire is given according to each student's capabilities and tastes, including resources for accompanying dance and singing.

I have been gearing up for some extensive travel in Spain combined with some immersive flamenco guitar studies. Prior to studying with him, I had played various forms of guitar for several years but only had minimal exposure to true Flamenco styles. Gustavo has been extremely helpful in getting me ready for the experience with techniques, fundamentals, in-depth palos knowledge, rhythm and timing, interactions with Dancers and Singers, etc.. He is extremely knowledgeable and talented in all areas of Flamenco and he is very good at explaining it all to a non-native (extranjero) like myself! His depth of musical theory combined with in-depth experience studying in Spain make him a uniquely qualified Flamenco Guitar Instructor. This was my first experience with online instruction and within the first lesson, I felt like I had known him for months. I highly recommend studying with Gustavo no matter how much experience you have when you start this path!!
Vlad
I have been taking flamenco guitar lessons from Gustavo for over 2 years and have only good things to say about him. His passion for flamenco, his eclectic knowledge of the style, his considerate teaching style are second to none. Gustavo is very inspirational and his teaching style adapts easily to any student’s level. He is easy going and his choice of material is exceptional. I would highly recommend Gustavo to anyone willing to explore the depths and subtaltiies of the flamenco guitar.

There is no method in music that works for all. From hearing the student playing on the first lesson, I immediately create a method that will work for this student and no one else. This is based on intuition and it comes from my knowledge and love form teaching music.

"Enthusiastic, talented instructor

I’ve been taking lessons with John now for close to 4 months. Prior to Take Lessons I tried to teach myself to play (no luck) and had tried one on one lessons through Groupon, which were also not helpful or successful.
Right from the start, I enjoyed my lessons with John very much. He is enthusiastic, has a very positive, encouraging vibe, and has been more than willing to work with me at my skill level (basic guitar). I especially liked that he asked me to provide him with some music that reflected the style of guitar I wanted to learn to play. Once we laid some basic groundwork, we started off learning to play a song on the list I gave him. He is very talented at transcribing music by ear was able to guide me though the song without sheet music.
Finally, my schedule has been variable over the last few months, but he has been nothing but flexible and gracious in finding time for our lesson when I can’t make our regular scheduled time. I very much appreciate that about him.
Overall, I would recommend John for lesson without hesitation. He’s a talented musician and a gifted instructor."

"Wished I found Josh sooner

Josh has all the ingredients of the ideal teacher. He genuinely cares about my progress (or lack thereof). He is very patient. He tailors each lesson to what I want to learn and play. He is able to answer my questions - his knowledge of music runs deep. He spends significant time outside of my lessons to prepare for each lesson itself. And he gives me homework.
I recommend giving Josh a try before you make a decision."

Guitar Lessons in Miami

By Erik A. - Miami Guitar Teacher

Although Miami is not the first city that one might think about as a haven for rock guitar or guitar based music, I have found that it does create a unique environment for a guitarist to practice their craft. People ask me why I have moved to a city much more known for party and dance culture than any kind of rock or folk music. Truthfully, I cannot give a good answer. All I can say is that it just feels right to be here. Something about this beach just clicks with me, and as any surrounding would, it has affected my approach to music and to teaching guitar lessons in Miami.

I have also found opportunities and met people here who click with me. Finding the opportunity to teach guitar lessons in Miami with TakeLessons has allowed me to share my passion with people with musical tastes ranging from country and folk to 80s rock to pop and modern music. The music that my students want to play doesn’t always mesh with my tastes, but it is still fun and rewarding to help them find their voice in the kind of music that they are passionate about. I am grateful that I have this opportunity. It could have happened anywhere I suppose, but it did happen here and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love having people come to my home studio to learn with the ocean and sea breeze as a backdrop.

I have also met some other creative guitarists here. Verdi Mayer and Steven Weingarth are two of them who, along with bassist Jorge Rodriguez and drummer Robert Pinion, play in the band Space Between Words. They initially got together with the idea of being a rockabilly group, but have morphed into something completely different. Although some traces of rockabilly can be found in some of their songs like “Crazy as a Fox” and “Things Children Do,” they are really just undercurrents of a style that is somewhat indefinable. The songs are hard-edged, with influences ranging from blues, classic rock, punk and experimental music. This eclecticism is in a way reflective of their surroundings.

Miami is obviously a very multicultural city and each culture brings its own background in music. Dance music, whether electronic, salsa, reggaeton or hip-hop, is the dominant force. One cannot live in this city and be oblivious to the dance scenes and rhythm-dominated music. My original home in Minneapolis is more in tune with the straight-ahead rock or singer-songwriter scene. Even the hip-hop coming out of Minnesota is more of a head-bobbing kind than a club dance kind. Although I may be more comfortable with that kind of approach, I do find it exciting to try and add more rhythm to my music. The guys from Space Between Words agree, saying that being surrounded by rhythmic music has made them more conscious of rhythm’s place in their music.

There are other high-caliber musicians, the band point out, who make them step up their own game. Both Steve and Verdi immediately name Buffalo Brown from Out of the Anonymous, and Jay and Victor from the punk band Mind You as major local influences. Other honorable mentions were Fernando Perdomo from Dreaming in Stereo and Andrew Pino from Mind Chips. Steven also lists Verdi as a major inspiration and influence to his own guitar style. A few local artists have gained national attention too. Iron & Wine started in Miami and is one of my personal favorites. His mellow grooves and voice seem to echo the coolness of the ocean.

I hope this article will encourage you to want to learn, play, write your own guitar music and ultimately take guitar lessons here in Miami. I would advise you not to be discouraged by the initial impression that this city does not welcome guitar-oriented music. Find in your surroundings something that inspires you to want to make music and if you haven’t already, check out some of the aforementioned artists. They may inspire you too!
