Guitar is among the most intimate performance instruments. Whether strumming it for rock 'n roll or caressing its strings for folk or classical music, it evokes an instantly recognizable emotional response. It's become the ideal instrument for expressing the vulnerability and uncertainty of love, the brief sting of agony, or any existential expression.

It's portable. It's loud enough to be heard in a crowd of voices, but quiet enough to be practiced in your bedroom. Musically its fretboard is based on the piano's chromatic scale. Its six strings accommodate both simple and complex voicing, depending on the player's skill or desired effect.

As a classically trained musician with 25 years of guitar performance experience in pop, folk, and rock music, I offer a range of styles, techniques, and comprehensive approaches to understanding and mastering this historic instrument, depending on your personal preferences. My focus is on exploration, discovery, and learner-directed lessons. My ...

Emphasis on basic music theory knowledge and heavy emphasis on transcribing and learning songs.

The absolute best way to become a competent songwriter is by listening to and learning other artist's music. By listening, you discover what elements you want in your own music and by learning (with a basic understanding of music theory), you discover how to put those elements into your own music.

Some topics I like to go over in a given songwriting lesson are as follows:

-Chord progressions and use of "color" chords
-Note choice and how to decide what note to sing/play
-Dynamics (basically intensity of the sections)
-Instrumentation (what instruments are playing what)
-Melodic phrasing (how you string notes together to make your musical "sentence")

About Christian

My name is Christian L. and I am a 29 year old guitar/music instructor in the Orlando area. My interest in guitar began when I was 12 years old and blossomed into a full time obsession about 3 years later when I started playing small gigs as a solo guitarist playing simple jazz and classical pieces

I had an awesome first lesson with Christian, and I intend to have many more.

He is clear and thorough in his explanations, he checks in to ensure I'm understanding his instruction, and he is genuine in his efforts to help me reach my goals.

I'm looking forward to having my guitar technique and knowledge improve under his instruction.
Chloe
Christian has gone above and beyond my expectations for a guitar teacher. I feel very lucky to have found him as an instructor. My music and guitar knowledge has grown leaps and bounds over the past year. I highly recommend Christian!
Robert
Christian is great. Excellent communication and knowledge of the guitar. Most importantly, his enthusiasm for the guitar is infectious. I'm very much looking forward to my next lesson. Highly recommended.

I have been teaching for over 15 years. I am a certified early childhood and elementary education teacher. I have a Master's of Education with a focus on reading and a reading specialist certificate. I have taught students of all ages in individual, small group, and large group lessons. My students have grown one to two years in reading in one school year. I adjust my teaching methods to meet the needs of the students since all students learn differently. I like to use different and fun activities to help students improve their reading. If students enjoy reading, they will practice reading more and improve even more.
