- Mr Mandel is the most patient instructor, which is good since he's dealing with an 8 year old girl who's not sure she even wants to play an instrument. Somehow, he manages to instruct and motivate her even when she'd rather be playing computer games.
- I also take lessons from him- I've got a music background but had no previous experience with the guitar before and Mr Mandel was able to adapt his teaching style to accommodate that nicely.
-I highly recommend him!
Claire
I am an adult who began guitar as an adult and I have taken lessons with Mandel for nearly a year. He is the single best music instructor I have ever had. He is incredibly knowledgeable and versatile, welcomes questions, and will take time to explain anything even if it interferes with his planned lesson. He is encouraging and incredibly professional. I leave every lesson ready to try again and encouraged to keep practicing. I highly recommend him as a guitar and music theory instructor.
Patrick
Mandel is an excellent guitar teacher, and is very professional at his craft. He shows patience and works with you effectively throughout every 30 minute session! Thumbs up!

I have vast knowledge in song construction and composition and have three decades of song writing under my belt. I have many original tunes recorded and know how to teach songwriting skills.

About Paul

Hi! My name is Paul and I'd love to share the joy of playing the guitar with you! I have been a professional musician and teacher for over 35 years. I know much about playing the guitar and being an artist. I am passionate about music, which is why lessons with me are so fun. I know how to custom

Paul's enthusiasm for the bass is infectious and a great motivator. I actually feel like I may be able to learn to play! In just one lesson I learned more than 5 hours of You Tube tutorials could have taught me.
Ken A.
Great Teacher

I played a little guitar throughout my life but was lacking an understanding of how the instrument works. I found myself strumming a few cords here and there but never with focus or improvement. After only three lessons with Paul, I'm now jamming to rock and the blues!Paul was quickly able to access my level of playing and I'm now understanding how the fretboard works and most importantly having lots of fun during lessons and practice. He teaches with passion and doesn't simply open a book but rather instills his lifelong experience and philosophy into lessons. Many can teach the mechanics of guitar but with Paul, you'll also understand the soul.
Meg M.
Paul Rocks !!

I just had my 2nd lesson with Paul and felt inspired to write a review. I have wanted to learn guitar for many, many years now. In the past, I have always gotten frustrated -or bored- and gave up before I ever even learned a chord. Our 1st lesson, Paul started me with some very basic mechanics. It was just the right amount of information to keep me interested and challenged but not so much that I was overwhelmed the 1st week. From just 15 -30 minutes a day of practicing, I have already gained some flexibility in my fingers and am beginning to have a "feel" for the instrument. I have seen more improvement and learned more from Paul and the exercises he has given me in just 2 lessons than I have collectively ever learned from any other teacher in the past or any book or online tutorial. His knowledge of the instrument, as well as music theory, is vast and he knows how to break it down into digestible bits for maximum benefit to the student. So I am not only learning to play guitar, I am also being introduced to music theory in a very easy to understand manner. He is very patient and creates a safe and supportive environment in which to learn comfortably. I am SO glad I found him!!! His way of teaching really works or me ~ I feel hopeful, inspired and motivated for the first time ever in attempting to learn this instrument. Thank you Paul and Thank You Take Lessons !!

Writing songs is so much fun, and easier than you think! Having studied jazz and pop theory and songwriting at Westminster Choir College, and the Berklee College of Music online, combined with my own personal experience writing music as a singer here in northeast Florida, has prepared me to teach the beginning fundamentals of songwriting.

Online Songwriting Teacher

I love songwriting, and have been writing songs pretty much since the day I started playing music. I mostly write songs on the guitar and for voice, but I have plenty of experience writing music for all instruments, as well as writing songs for rock, pop, and jazz bands. I can help you with your own songs no matter what style of music you like. I can help you learn the elements of song writing that are universal to all styles of music so that you can find your own sound, as well as how to get the sound of a specific style.

About Cristopher

If you feel like you're stuck or hit a wall, I can help take your skills to the next level; I can help you improve your technique, learn difficult songs, learn more about gear and gigs and performing, help you learn how to play any chord, key, or scale in any position, or help you learn how to solo

My daughter (9), son (7) and myself are all taking lessons and Cris Is able to adapt for all our learning needs and makes it fun along the way too.
Derek R.
I had my first lesson today. Cris is the real deal. He is an excellent guitar player and was able to coax what little skill and talent I possess into a formidable lesson early on. I'll be booking my Son along with myself and returning. We are blessed to have someone in the Rancho Bernardo/Rancho Penaquitos area like Cris!

"So, if you need a music coach, Fawn is the one! She teaches just about all things music! She is honestly the best. Fawn is always friendly and works with you on all possible songwriting, melodic and lyrical issues. She is also great with working with your schedule.
Fawn is easy to talk to and she brings up thought provoking topics I would have never thought to write about. We work in Google Docs so I can see as she makes adjustments and changes. I am learning more than I thought imaginable and my
songwriting is getting stronger and tighter. Thanks Fawn!"

"Ahmad is Awesome! Lessons are a must. Before I started lessons, I would find tabs online and it was fun but I was wasting my time. I wasn't progressing and I didn't have any concept of timing and other essential basics. As a result, I was playing the proper notes but I wasn't playing them correctly and I couldn't improvise at all.

Ahmad takes difficult concepts and breaks them down into small, easy to understand pieces. Harmony concepts that I thought I wouldn't be able to grasp, I understand fully and use every day. He has a ton of tips that make learning so much faster. For instance, you learn how to find any note on the neck quickly without having to memorize the whole neck, which is crucial skill. Another great thing is that he uses tablature in his lessons. So, you don't have to know how to read music to get started.

If you ever want to write your own music or play with other people, call Ahmad now. He will make sure you learn the right way. I'm writing music and playing/improvising solos, at a level I thought I would never be able to achieve. Every lesson opens new possibilities."

"Fawn is original, passionate and a musical genius who makes learning fun

Fawn’s way of teaching is quite original, passionate and always to the point. She can make the most insecure person get out of their own way and become more secure. Working with her, I get a glimpse of genius in action. She really is a musical genius and I have been learning an incredible amount from her. My songs keep getting better under her training and guidance and I finally got a placement in a sitcom from her re-write. I look forward to watching my own abilities continue to grow and become stronger."
