Julian is an outstanding instructor. He has an amazing teaching ability, offering a great deal of knowledge and patience for people of all levels. I am really glad to have found a way to really learn what playing bass is all about. Thanks to Julian, I feel like I am able to hold my own if I ever try to look for a band to play with. I now feel like I can play and sound good doing it. Highly recommend!!

I started out with absolutely no musical training at all. The first few sessions we spent on learning the basics of how to hold the instrument properly. Julian then asked me why I wanted to learn so that he could find the right method for me. Its been about 4 years and I feel I keep getting better. I have learned more than I ever thought id be able to. I even played live in front of fans before a stars game at the AT&T Center. Julian is a great instructor and will tailor your sessions based on what you want to learn, all the while giving you the proper tools to grow on your own and find your own sound.

Felipe G. San Antonio, TX

Playing guitar is so much fun and I can help you discover your inner rockstar! I focus on teaching chords so that my students can begin playing as fast as possible. If there is a song you want to learn, I can teach it to you! Materials used in guitar lessons include various Hal Leonard publications, such as Guitar Method books 1, 2, & 3, and Guitar Aerobics, as well as the Guitar Grimorie series published by Carl Fischer. For children's guitar lessons, I use Children's Complete Guitar Method from Alfred.

About Felipe

Hello and thank you for viewing my profile. My name is Felipe Garcia and I am a self-taught music teacher. I began teaching music in 2010 and have loved it ever since. I believe learning to play music can be fun and easy, and I work hard to make sure your experience with music is one that will inspire you to keep playing for the rest of your life, for as Friedrich Nietzsche said, “without music, life would be a mistake.” My experience with music began long ago when I begged my parents to buy me a drumset and they finally gave in and bought me one when I was 14. Prior to that, I had no real experience with music except as a listener. I taught myself how to play by playing along with CDs of my favorite bands and eventually I felt like the drums wasn't enough, so I talked my parents into ...

Felipe has been great. I am learning a challenging new instrument - a 6-string banjo (aka a Banjitar) - which is a banjo/guitar blend. In less than a month I am feeling more confident and comfortable with the instrument. I am looking forward to learning more!

Felipe has been a fantastic instructor! My son is 4, nearing 5, and like most his age, has a limited attention span. Felipe has been able to keep him engaged and has been extremely flexible and easy to work with. He has introduced my son to not only drums, but also any other instrument he shows an interest in. I highly recommend him.

Jim is a great guy and excellent teacher, but was not up to date on the oldies instrumentals and that was my main profile request. I did learn things from him in other areas that will help me with other songs. Thank you

After just a few lessons with Michael I could see instant improvements in my guitar playing and truly started to understand more and more about my instrument, and just music in general. My lessons are always a good time with Michael and i look forward to each one every week. He's a great teacher and musician and I definitely recommend him to everyone.

Michael has been wonderful. He seems very young to this old woman, but his maturity is remarkable. I have never had a teacher handle 'Thias the way Michael does. Somehow he seems to always be a step ahead of his young student and has a distinct ability to keep 'Thias focused on the lesson. Mathias has learned so much in the last four weeks, his playing sounds much more mature and organized and he is enraptured with the music he is making. I have always had to keep an eye on the lesson to make sure that Mathias was engaged. Somehow I do not feel the need to do that anymore. I guess I can say that Michael has given me the chance to relax and "enjoy the music". Thank you, Michael, You are making my dream and Mathias's dream come true.
Andrew F. San Antonio, TX

After understanding a student's level and what their goals are, if a student does not already have music picked out,I help pick out a suitable song to use for lessons. I like to experiment, so, after the student gains a good understanding of playing a song, I go over ways to change up the song to explore other kinds of expression through the guitar. With this approach, my students may learn to bring logic (technique, scales, etc.) and feelings (how they play songs, etc.) together. After a good level of understanding is obtained, I go over beginning lead guitar with students. I strive to make it a fun experience so that motivation is well-maintained. If desired, I can include singing in the lessons.

About Andrew

I have experience tutoring students as well as working with people individually and in groups, as an undergrad intern, a cognitive skills trainer, and a counseling student. As an undergrad intern, I worked with elementary school children as a tutor and a mentor. As a counseling student, I have worked with various populations, from children to adults to older adults in hospice care, as well as individuals suffering from a mental illness. Also, I teach a beginner ukulele class at a community education center. This diversity has given me an all around kind of perspective when it comes to working with individuals and has especially helped me further develop my approach. My approach is one that is peculiar to each of my students. As an auto-didactic learner, I believe that everyone ...

Ruth made me feel very comfortable, and the lesson went well. I learned quite a bit for just the 1st lesson, and expect to make good progress. Ruth played my violin and made it sound great, so I am looking forward to being able to do the same.
We went through some of the basics on tuning, parts of the violin, reading music, posture, arm position, and bowing. I think Ruth has good skills, a nice way with people, and would recommend her as a teacher.
