I have been teaching professionally for over 8 years to a wide range of ages and abilities. Wherever you're at in music, I will guide you to your next breakthrough moment.

We can talk about chords and scales, improvising, using rhythm, improving timing, sight-reading, playing by ear, and general quality-of-life upgrades when it comes to playing the guitar.

Do you want to get out there and start playing right away? With a background in jazz, I have been fortunate to play with some of the top musicians in the world, and get consistent work as a guitarist, and I can help you do the same. As a modern-day musician entrenched in the world of recording and production, I am also well versed in industry-standard practices and technology. With my experience, I can help you with working in sessions with other artists, and recording and producing your own music. I also love to help beatmakers and producers learn more guitar/music skills and hear their productions come alive with their ...

I like to make learning an instrument fun and easy to fit into your schedule!

If you're an adult finally getting around to learning your dream instrument or a child following your passion of playing music I tailor your lessons specifically to you. We look at what you want to play, pick specific songs that you want to learn, and learn the techniques you need to play these songs. It sounds simple, but it's so effective and much more fun to learn this way!

Private Guitar Teacher

My name is Justin and I have been playing guitar for over 20 years. I am always learning new things about not only guitar playing, but music in general. Over the years I have been a regular guitarist at church gigs, played random shows, learned cover songs for band settings, jammed with friends for creative ideas and exploration, and have read, studied, and pushed myself to be a better musician and guitar player. I have taken lessons from local guitar players myself, and I am currently enrolled in Jazz guitar courses in school. I am also pretty strong in my understanding of music theory.

What I have to offer you is a better understanding of music, and better control of your instrument through a more fluent technique. If you are interested, I will do all I can to meet you where you are musically, and help you to get to where you want to be. And at the same time, I would like to help you better understand how the mechanics of music operate so that you can eventually map out your own ...

About Justin

Listening to Randy Rhoads got me interested in playing the guitar. The first solo of his that really grabbed me was the one he performed in "Over the Mountain." I thought at the time that no one could possibly play any better than that. But over the years I have been exposed to so many incredible pl

Through the foundation I've gained by the influences of Mel Bay, Hal Leonard, and Suzuki musical instruction methods, I compile my own teaching materials. Using personally constructed guitar lessons, I demonstrate, instruct, and guide the student based on my assessment of their individual needs, skill level, and progress. Lessons are formulated in Modules, and advancement through them is based on the student's personal aptitude, skill level, and practice commitment. Learning is accomplished by ear as well as through essential methods of musical notation (tablature, 5-line staff, rhythmic comprehension). Students are trained to perform written music as well as to write and express the music within themselves.
I'm an encouraging and motivating guitar teacher with a casual relaxed approach. Teaching new guitarists is very rewarding to me. To see the light come on and watch a student perform a song, express themselves musically, and create their own composition is an awesome experience.

About Scott

The key to learning guitar......is finding the right instructor! I am an encouraging, effective guitar instructor and an experienced performing musician, offering in-person beginner through intermediate guitar instruction in my home and on line. It is very rewarding to me to help others along

"Jason is a professional and exceptional.

With his ability to teach guitar, drums, keyboard, and also songwriting, my hyper 5 year old is never board. I'm not interested right now in pushing one instrument over the other. I just want her to be "exposed" to different instruments, develop an ear for music, see how she can take her lyrics (budding songwriter, with her singing her day all the time), and enhance it with an instrument. Jason can do all that, because he has the knowledge, but he's also very FLEXIBLE and can easily transition from one insturment and teaching method to another, depending on where a young student's mind and interests take them in any given moment.

Learning to play traditionally/classically, slowly, methodically, step-by-step, learning formal music theory, doing drills and so forth is awesome, and Jason can do that. However, if you want to learn to play for fun, and begin jamming sooner than later...he's definately your man."

"Priscilla has worked with my daughter over several weeks of beginner guitar lessons. These were in our home. She was always on time. When a cancellation was necessary due to weather, she reached out ahead of time to let us know.

As a teacher, she is wonderful with kids. My daughter (7 years old) has enjoyed every minute of every lesson, coming away very happy after each lesson. Priscilla is very enthusiastic, arrives with a very uplifting attitude for every lesson, knows how to talk to kids, knows how to give them positive reinforcement and motivate them. She left helpful homework notes after each lesson. I highly recommend her."

"Lessons with Al are always a high point of my week. Learning guitar as an adult is challenging, and he is unfailingly encouraging and motivational. His teaching method - a mix of music theory, exercises, improvisation, and practicing songs - keeps things fresh and challenging every week, and has helped me become better at productive practicing outside of each session. Al is also willing to jump down the rabbit hole with me when I bring him something I can’t figure out on my own. I cannot recommend him highly enough. He is a wonderful teacher."

I did a check in on my abilities recently and I'm able to play pretty much any song in the real book now after 1 or 2 tries. This is great, especially because I don't feel like I'm working that hard. So yeah he's great. I recommend him."
