Private Guitar Teacher

My name is Wassim, and I have been a guitarist for over 10 years, and an avid lover of music for as long as I can hear and remember. My area of focus and interest is customizing a modern learning approach that fits your goals, pace, and aspirations. Learning guitar techniques and music theory isn’t all you can expect to gain from my time, you will also be able to learn about all the other captivating aspects of music on this quest; such as music notation, arranging, transcribing, ear training, tracking and producing (if they happen to align with your goals). We all have music in us, and together you’ll be able to not only tap into the music you want to make, but you'll also create and share it with the world.

With an ever-growing amount of instructional guitar content available at our fingertips, it can be easy to get overwhelmed on your musical journey and often find it challenging to know where to begin, or if you’re even on the most impactful path for you.

My pledge is to work ...

I teach:
TENOR BANJO - MANDOLIN - TENOR GUITAR - ACOUSTIC GUITAR
Please go to the instrument listing and it will explain about that particular Instrument.

Hello,

I play 2 types of guitars:

Acoustic Guitar with 5 strings, DADGAD - Drop D & Standard tuning
&
Irish Tenor Guitar GDAE
A tenor guitar is smaller then a regular guitar, it has 4 steel strings.
It was initially developed in its acoustic form from Gibson and C.F. Martin so that the four-string tenor banjo players could double on guitar.
The tenor guitar has a distinctive style of its own. It can be heard in Country, Western Swing, Jazz, Contemporary Folk and Pop music.

I accommodate all students differently depending on their level, style of music they would like to learn and the pace that is easiest for them. You will learn melody and chords those are both essentials. We will work from a book as well as print outs and I will send you weekly recordings, you can feel free to contact me anytime between ...

Antonio is such a kind and patient teacher. He was able
to get me started on the basics of the tenor banjo in our first lesson and even made me my own binder of music for me to practice at home. It’s hard to come by someone who actually knows the tenor banjo and I feel lucky to have found a great teacher! He really look the time to make sure I felt comfortable practicing for our next session. I am looking forward to continuing my studies with Antonio.

Guitar is my main squeeze. I love to help people enjoy the instrument as much as I do. learn to shred a rock solo, fingerpick a folk song, or transcribe miles davis. learn to play what you hear on records without resorting to you tube instructional videos (wink). or if you are already an accomplished musician, enhance your ability to employ techniques like chord weaving on the guitar, craft better solos, write more sophisticated chord progressions, etc

I like to make learning an instrument fun and easy to fit into your schedule!

If you're an adult finally getting around to learning your dream instrument or a child following your passion of playing music I tailor your lessons specifically to you. We look at what you want to play, pick specific songs that you want to learn, and learn the techniques you need to play these songs. It sounds simple, but it's so effective and much more fun to learn this way!

"I've been playing guitar for 7 years, and have had 4 different teachers, and Tom has been the best out of all of them. He's always shown me different ways of looking at scales and progressions, and has always avidly pursued me to expand my improvisation skills, and has aided in my development of those skills. I would recommend Tom for anyone, no matter what genre you are trying to pursue, he knows how to make you a good player, and shows you how to appreciate all kinds of music, making you the most versatile musician you can be."

I really wanted to start learning an instrument and Andrew has thus far been an amazing teacher. He's fun to work with and as serious as you need him to be. He is very good at explaining how everything works and how to get things done. His relaxed, hands on teaching style makes the learning fun and progressive. Don't be fooled he is very adept at what he does. He can decipher exactly what notes are playing when he listens to a song. You will learn if you try and even if you cant find the time its still a wonderful experience, I would recommend anyone who wants to learn guitar at their own pace to shoot for this great teacher and cheerful personality."

Best Rock Guitar Songs for Beginners to Learn 

When you’re first learning to play guitar, it's important to develop the dexterity and coordination of your left and the right hands. To be able to use both hands is our initial goal and this takes a good amount of practice. If you’re going to spend hours practicing, you might as well use that time to learn something that you like to play. After all, it is much more fun to practice songs in a genre that you like, rather than practicing a piece in a style that you don’t like. So, if you …
