About Nikola
Nikola M is locally recognized as a guitarist extraordinaire that specializes in teaching and performing progressive rock. Nikola's proven teaching methods have been acknowledged by San Diego's finest musicians and his students range from beginners to highly accomplished professionals.

In addition to stints in various rock bands, studio session work and 16 years of playing experience, Nik's development of teaching guitar was made possible by having achieved a firm musical background throughout his earlier years of performing with orchestra ensembles. As a classically trained brass player, Nikola studied music under college guitar professor Gary Tuttle and award winning SDSC band director/guitarist Phillip S. Marcus.

Nikola's client list has included the likes of music producer and composer Toby Weiss (son of jazz legend and Guitar I
nstitute of Technology co founder Joe Diorio) pro touring guitarist Christopher Eck of the band Masterguru, former students of guitar virtuosos Greg Howe and Joe Stump and many other serious amateur and professional musicians.

*** Lesson Details ***
Heavily influenced by legendary virtuoso guitarists Eddie Van Halen, Steve Vai and Yngwie Malmsteen, Nikola's goal as a teacher is to convey his knowledge and expertise of the guitar on to others while emphasizing his own style, which exemplifies speed, intensity and finesse. While his exploits in rock guitar gymnastics continue to attract and inspire new players, Nik's approach to teaching is simplistic, yet highly effective and suitable for young beginners and adults of all ages.

Nikola M's guitar lessons are professional, insightful, progressive and cover a wide and exciting spectrum including:

The Rudiments of Music

* Chords
* Rhythm studies
* Scales
* Warm up stretches
* Sight reading for beginners
* Theory
* Modes

Technique and Repertoire

I can teach you to solo creatively all day long

About Scott
Hi! I'm Scott. I perform with a one-man band setup I created which utilizes a modified guitar and home-made foot pedals to control a drum set, while I sing on top of it all. I have a recording studio at home, and have performed with bands as a singer, guitarist, saxophonist, bassist, percussionist, and as a sound engineer. I've written, performed and recorded my own album which made it to the 2nd round of the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards, and was a voting member of the Philadelphia Chapter of the Grammy Committee and NARAS (National Association or the Recording Arts and Sciences.) I started piano lessons from age 5 and just kept picking up more instruments and gear as I got older and never stopped learning or enjoying it!

*** Lesson Details ***
I have been teaching Guitars, Basses, Percussion, Piano, Saxophone, Music Production, Re
cording, and Live Sound for 16 years.

I can teach you note-reading, tabs, ear training, music theory, composition, improvisation in just about any style of music.

Working with people writing songs is something I enjoy thoroughly; I can help you write and record your own songs. A computer and internet access are preferred to take full advantage of the technology for learning and producing music.

Knowledgeable in Instrument repair, set-up, and maintenance, I can help you fix it, and how to spot a good instrument.

Patient and experienced, with a broad knowledge of music in most areas, I can give you hundreds of good references from previous students I've taught over the years

*** Studio Equipment ***

Guitars, basses, percussion and drum sets, a piano, saxophones, hand drums, a 20-track digital recording studio with monitors that are equalized to the room's acoustics for accurate listening and mixing, plus an assortment of microphones, amps, mic stands, cables, and connectors.

I have 5 years of one-on-one guitar lesson experience and have been playing guitar for over 20 years. I am patient, encouraging, and tailor each lesson to the individual. Never a "cookie-cutter" lesson!

In my time teaching guitar, I have worked with students ranging from 8 years old to over 60! All ages are welcome! Learning guitar can and should be super exciting. Join me on this adventure!

About Craig
I am a seasoned vet when it comes to playing and teaching guitar. I have over 20 years playing and 5 years (professionally) teaching. I am able to work with a beginner from day one and get them up and playing songs in no time.

Encouragement and positive reinforcement is key when learning to play guitar. You will never hear a discouraging word out of my mouth and we will work together to continue moving forward.

A little about me personally: I have been married for 14 years now. My wife Leah and I have 3 children, Caleb, Claire, and Caitlin. I am in the Valley Center (Wichita) KS area. My musical passion and style ranges from country and folk to hard rock and blues. If it's on the guitar, I can play it and I can teach it.

I attended the prestigious Berklee college of music, have been teaching guitar for 10 years and playing for 20. I create lesson plans before every lesson to make sure that my students progress efficiently. I realize that most of the students I gain from takelessons.com will be beginners. Starting off with simple, one finger open chords, and simple melodies is business as usual. I can also teach students their favorite songs using this method. Of course reading music is an option, and I assign a theory book for this based on the students current skill level. As students progress, I teach scales, chord strumming patterns and things of the like. I love teaching and always have fun with my students, it's great to see them excited about learning they're favorite songs. I've been doing this a long time and it doesn't feel like work to me, I'm enthusiastic and well prepared.

Josh is an incredible musician, teacher, guitar, and bass player (haven't tried his singing lessons yet). His knowledge on both theoretic and practical aspects of music (acquired during his studies as well as several tours with world class bands) is very broad which makes his lessons fun and dynamic, a major plus for motivation and learning process.
With his "hands on" guitar lessons we quickly built a fun song's set which was custom made for my skills level at the time. Led Zeppelin's "Black Dog" was among one of the first songs I learned, and by then I had basic chord's as well as a couple major scale positions knowledge.
I ve been seeing Josh (lately via Skype, which saves me 1 hour a day in commute) for the past 3.5yrs and nowadays I am actually playing with a band which goes live every now and then, despite my challenging 10+ daily work hours.
Josh was instrumental to keep me motivated all the time, I strongly recommend giving him a try.

Josh Lattanzi is an excellent guitar teacher. He is a knowledgable, skilled and accomplished musician who has really helped me make sense of what has always been a confusing instrument for me.

Josh's style is patient, supportive and also very funny. He's the reason I love playing guitar and didn't get scared off by bar chords.

He also can play absolutely anything, and tailors my lessons to help me play the kind of stuff I write the best possible way. I am really grateful to be taught by him and will continue to take lessons as long as he's teaching.

Where do I start?

Josh Lattanzi's guitar lessons are simply the best. I started taking lessons with Josh after I graduated college. I was moving to New York to pursue songwriting and found Josh's website online, deciding to try out a lesson based on his experience as a musician and a teacher.

Now, over five years later I can confidently say that if I hadn't chosen Josh my career as a songwriter would be completely different. He goes above and beyond for his students.

I am simply incredibly lucky to have taken that initial step of a first lesson with Josh of NYC Guitar Lessons.

Josh is a patient, focused but fun teacher. His breadth and depth of knowledge of music, guitar and other instruments is extensive, and lends to thorough and thoughtful teaching.

The thing that I love most about taking lessons with Josh is that he is incredibly flexible, willing and able to tailor each student's lessons based on what their ultimate guitar goals are. It made it easy to refer friends to him that wanted to lean basics of guitar and suggest lessons to friends in the songwriting community who had more specific goals in mind.

I really can't speak highly enough about my experiences as an NYC guitar lessons student with Josh.

About David
My name is David, and I'm a guitar and bass instructor. I've been teaching guitar for about seven years, and I have experience teaching all ages and experience levels.

As well as being a teacher, I have experience performing in rock bands all over Atlanta since 2010. My experiences as a performer have made me both a better guitar player and a better teacher.

I'm a graduate of the Berklee College of Music, with a BPS in Interdisciplinary Music Studies (3.5 GPA). During my time at Berklee I learned a plethora of techniques and practices to help you be the best guitar player you can be.

If you are a more advanced player and are looking to speed up your playing, look no further. Over the years, I've developed a number of tricks and techniques to take your soloing and shredding to the next level.

My lessons are fun, engaging, and
effective. My lesson plans are specifically catered to each student whether you've never played a note in your life, you want to learn theory and songwriting, or if you're determined to be the best and fastest guitar player you can be. I specialize in rock, pop, punk, heavy metal, blues, and jazz.
