I always listen carefully to what you are interested in playing and learning about music, and will provide you with the tools to play guitar or banjo the way you want to as quickly as possible.

My goal is to develop your ability to play any genre or style you want, and to enable you to find an emotional connection with your instrument and your music.

I am well versed in music theory, improvisation, composition, technique, and instrument maintenance and care, and have several years experience teaching.

About Justin

I have been playing guitar since I was 12 years old, and I remember how awful my music teachers were at the time. I strive to do better than they did by truly listening to what you want out of music and giving you the tools to accomplish your goals. I love music and teaching and bring passion and e

Paul W.

I’ve been playing guitar professionally and teaching for over 20 years. I started taking piano lessons from the age of 5 because I could match songs that were playing on the radio before even touching a piano yet. I can translate the similarities between guitar and piano to teach students much more easily.

About Paul

I currently teach guitar and piano as well as harmonica at a community center. I can adapt and every students musical education level and steer them to where they want to be.

I'm a professional singer, composer, and arranger with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Jazz Vocal Performance. I've toured throughout the United States and several countries in Asia.

I teach all ages and welcome beginners. My lessons are customized and catered to the needs and goals of each student. My students can work on vocal techniques and improvisation (e.g., scat singing, melody changing, etc.) over their favorite songs. If they would like, I can help my students build a solid foundation in music theory, composition, and arranging.

I've taught older students who have a passion for jazz and also younger students who are exploring the many wonderful aspects of this music.

Above anything else, I'd like to make sure my students are having fun and expressing their love for singing!

I started taking lessons with Aya about three weeks ago and they have been great! I'm a former jazz vocalist who is getting back into singing with hopes to perform again in the near future. Aya is a patient, knowledgeable, and fun teacher. With her guidance, I feel confident that I'll be able to regain the voice I once had. I highly recommend her!

Darrell helped me a lot to get a handle on my Ableton rig. I needed to set up midi tracks, locate presets to create cool sounds from plugins. Then I needed to export the audio of a couple of those tracks to import into a separate Pro Tools project. Lot of progress, thanks Darrell! -- Frank S

"Wonderful teacher, highlyl recommended

Diane was great! I have played other musical instruments in the past, but never the flute. I told her I wanted to learn to play the flute in just 3 lessons. She didn't laugh and tell me that was impossible, but instead worked with me to achieve my goal! She was patient, thoughtful, great at pointing out little things that instantly improved my playing. She even went above and beyond by emailing me a link to a video tutorial. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to learn to play the flute."

Learning the Guitar Fretboard Notes [BONUS: Guitar Notes Chart]

Memorizing the guitar fretboard notes is something every beginning guitarist should work toward. Here, we'll share a quick exercise and guitar notes chart to help you get started. If the guitar had only one string, it would be quite easy to understand the mechanics of the guitar fretboard. It would be laid out just like a piano, where the further to the right you go, the higher the pitch and vice versa. It's not that easy when it comes to understanding a traditional six-string guitar. …
