Private Guitar Teacher

I have been teaching classical and electric guitar for about 9 years and I structure my lessons according to a student's goals, and objectives on the instrument. My students have been able to learn tunes by ear, and understand chord progressions and structures, and play with a pick or finger style!
I specialize in rock, metal, classical and jazz, and I can also teach extended range guitars and alternate tunings. Learn to shred, sweep, alternate pick and hybrid pick like no one's business!

Poh Hock is a well-rounded and versatile teacher. He is capable in many styles of playing and has a powerful understanding of music theory to reinforce his teaching. He is very patient and relaxed; I never feel stressed preparing for or during lessons. He is able to tailor his lessons more around exercises or learning songs depending on the wants and needs of the students. I've been taking music lessons in different instruments for 10+ years; learning with Poh Hock has singularly been the most positive and productive experience in that time.
Phillip Wrenbeck W.
Poh is awesome. He's super talented and educated in music. He has a great personality and challenges me in a positive way. I'm always looking forward to the next lesson!
Julian
Poh Hock is a great teacher that really has a passion for playing and teaching guitar. His style of teaching is very precise and methodical. I learned a lot of songs taking lessons with him but more importantly Poh Hock taught me how to practice material that I was working on. The lessons were really more like guided practice sessions. While some teachers that I've had might just use the lesson to teach material and have me practice over the week, Poh Hock used lesson time to really drill sections and get them to sound good. I absolutely recommend Poh Hock as a teacher for anyone who seriously wants to improve their playing and their approach to music in general.

Guilherme has been extremely flexible and understanding with my 16 year old son. My son loves going to his lesson and knows he needs to practice a bit more at home.
I strongly recommend Guilherme!

Zack is jazz guitar wizard! Not only is he amazing with the instrument, he’s also great at explaining new concepts, breaking things down into small, digestible pieces and encouraging students to explore their own musical interests.

I've been teaching guitar for 1.5 years and playing for 19 years. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to pick notes and play simple songs and as time goes on you'll be able to strum and play intermediate level songs. You will also learn music theory along the way. I specialize in classic rock and pop music, typically use Hal Leonard Guitar Tab Method books, and have the following tools available for your lessons: acoustic guitar, electric guitar, amplifier, microphone, Guitar Pro software, and Ipad. I enjoy working with students ages 8 and up at beginner and intermediate levels. I look forward to meeting you!

Hi!

I’ve been playing guitar for 10 years, starting from a shredhead, evolving to a jazzboy, and ending up as a who knows what. I got my BS in Contemporary Music Studies at SUNY New Paltz studying with Mark Dziuba, one of the baddest dudes around.

I’ve played in bands ranging from funk, straight-ahead and gypsy jazz to indie and surf rock. When it comes to music my mind is totally open; If you’re interested in it, I am interested.

Love music, and especially the guitar? Me too!
For beginners, I'll work with you to teach the absolutely crucial elements of basic music theory as it's applied to guitar, ingraining the necessary essentials such as strumming and picking technique, a wide variety of scales, chords, triads, songs, and more. You will gain a knowledgeable and comfortable skill in guitar playing and I will work with you to meet your needs and learning pace!

I have 15 years playing experience (acoustic or electric), a B.A. in Musicology from UCLA, and spent the last year playing live on the Nashville Broadway stages. I love the guitar and now I want to share that passion with you!

Adam is a great teacher and has a passion for music. He's super friendly and patient. He works well with beginners, creating lessons tailored to your individual goals, and can even work with intermediate level musicians who want to spruce up their sound. I 100% recommend him.
Cyrus
WOW! Adam got me flying on my cherrywood acoustic in no time. He knows so much about different playing styles, and helped me get my sound to where I could make great cover YouTube videos! I owe it all to Adam! He’s got great stories too!
Julian
For years I’d try to pick up my acoustic (it was a gift from my uncle) and toy around with it, even trying lessons on YouTube, but couldn’t get anywhere. After my first 3 sessions with Adam, I immediately knew I’d have the tools to take off on my own if I wanted to. 6 months later I’m playing gigs at local bars! This guy knows his guitars! Super fun and chill personality too!

The Surprising Benefit of Learning Guitar Without Sheet Music

We've talked about how to read chords and tabs before on the blog -- but what about a new approach of learning guitar without sheet music at all? Here, Austin, TX teacher Samuel B. explains his teaching technique...   During my college years, I was given a brief introduction to instructional methods common to Japan. Specifically, I was told that playing the shamisen or the koto (two native stringed instruments) is a skill learned by way of the student facing the teacher and playing w …
