Private Classical Guitar Teacher

I've been teaching classical guitar, to everyone from children to adults, for over a decade. My students not only get a comprehensive introduction to the genre, but also an appreciation for style and technique.

About Greg

For the last thirty years, from the day that I got my first electric as a teenager, to my work today as an acoustic guitarist for the band, Timberwood, and currently as a teacher of more than forty students a week, my life has been devoted to the guitar. I'm an experienced veteran of the meta

My son was given a guitar by a family member and showed variable interest until Greg started to teach him - Greg has woven elements of what my son needs to learn to improve with how these elements are used by some of the biggest and best guitarists ever and really changed practice from being a chore to something that can be fun. This is the way Greg said he would teach and he’s sticking very much to it! A great instructor that my son really enjoys going to - thanks Greg!!
Robert
I was very impressed, satisfied and happy about my guitar lessons with Greg.
I'm German and booked just 5 lessons due to travel reasons. There was very vage input from me to Greg when we started (I always play the same; want to get new ideas; ...). Greg did not just provide a regular standard lesson. He focused and addressed 100%+ my desires and needs. Greg provided me very conrete and great input in several aspects to what I can do to improve my guitar playing. This was very useful to me and enabled me to move my guitar play forward. I highly recommend Greg to anybody.
Janice D.
Greg is a great teacher! In just 4 months, I have learned so much about music theory, basic chords and history of guitar. He packs a lot of info in one lesson. He is patient and encouraging. He has exposed me to many artists who play guitar. He gives me good tips on how to form the chords easier. Greg makes learning to play guitar FUN!

Private Classical Guitar Teacher

I teach nylon string classical guitar. I always start lessons with new students by getting to know what music they love to play and listen to, and I will develop my lessons accordingly. People often mistake “classical guitar” for any fingerstyle acoustic guitar. However, if your interest is indeed classical music, I will teach music of the medieval, renaissance, baroque, classical, romantic, and contemporary periods, of various composers from around the world, such as John Dowland, J.S. Bach, Fernando Sor, Francisco Tárrega, or Heitor Villa-Lobos.

If you have experience with classical guitar, I will ask you to demonstrate your skill level by playing a piece you know. If you are picking up guitar for the first time, the first lessons will be devoted to learning correct posture and technique, and you will begin playing your first scales, exercises, and open chords. After a few lessons, you will begin to learn to play single-line pieces. Classical guitar players also play with their ...

Private Classical Guitar Teacher

I have three goals for each individual student. First, is for the student to understand and learn the fundamentals of the basic flamenco forms and techniques. Second, is to take what he or she has learned and apply it (e.g., composing his or her own riffs and/or accompanying other musicians). Finally, I want each student to share what he or she has learned with others--pass it on!

About Ben

EDUCATION I hold an M.P.A. and a B.A. from California State University, Fullerton (CSUF) in Public Administration (what does that have to do with the Flamenco guitar?); prior to that those degrees, I received an A.A. in Political Science (again, what does that have to do with Flamenco guitar?).

Almost five months have passed since I decided to take up the guitar. As, I was looking back on these five months, I realized that I could not have found a better instructor to teach me this instrument.

William provides insight. compassion and patience. He makes you feel good about learning the guitar. I look forward to my lessons knowing I will be learning something new each week.
I have already made great progress and look forward to the challenges William has for me in the near future.

If you are looking for someone that will make learning the guitar a fun experience, William is your guy, He has made sure he customizes my lesson plan to my abilities and makes sure I have the best techniques that will insure my success!

Thanks William!!

Three lesson in an William has exceeded my expectations.

William is a kind talented person and has not only been extremely patience but his teaching method is making sure I understand what I have to do in order to be successful at learning the guitar.

He has been extremely helpful in providing me with great options in selecting a guitar. Not only did he make great suggestions on what I should purchase but made sure the instrument was in top form by giving it the once over after I made the purchase. William's ability to provide helpful information and the his willingness to share his expertise has gone above an beyond my expectations.

I am looking forward to my future lessons and learning the correct way to learn how to play the guitar.

Thanks William!

Mr. G. helped me with Good Riddance today, and he helped me with the song and equipped me with what I needed to know the whole thing. He has been a great instructor.
