Private Classical Guitar Teacher

David enjoys teaching students from all different backgrounds and levels of proficiency. Whether you are just starting out or a virtuoso shredder in the making, he is happy to teach you! Over all, he is fairly laid back, as long as you practice. He usually combines work with reading off of the treble clef (what he likens to "eating your vegetables." You may not want to do it, but it will make you a healthier musician!) with learning more popular songs (or songs the student says they would like to learn) through tablature and chord charts, depending on the style of the song.

David is also very pro music theory. He usually incorporates music theory into the curriculum in conjunction with the material already being discussed. He is also very knowledgeable about composition/songwriting, and if the student is interested in learning more about this area, he is happy to share what he knows!

About David

David is a successful singer/songwriter/guitarist out of Fairfax, VA. He has a bachelor's degree in Music with a concentration in composition from Salisbury University, where he also studied jazz and classical guitar . In the 25 years he has been performing (20 of those professionally) and playin

I had to switch the lesson to in-home roughly 3 hours before the scheduled lesson. David was great and accommodating. He gave me a crash course on scales, which I didn't know anything about, and explained them so that I actually started to understand.
Samantha Gordon
My first lesson with David was excellent! He is very patient and knowledgeable. I now have extremely high expectations for learning to play the guitar. I highly recommend him. He gave me a thorough explanation about how guitars are made made, the parts, we tuned the guitar and I am ready to groove!

Music is the only truly universal language, and it is appealing to any and everyone who hears it. To have an interest is natural, and it has been my pleasure to have served as performer, teacher, and Music Director for 13 years.

I am proficient with 9 instruments, but my great love is for the guitar---a love I enjoy sharing with my students!

I have had experience playing with many touring groups, from KT Tunstall, The Jonas Brothers, and the Miami Sound Machine---as well as many different projects of my own.

No genre is too obscure, no song too challenging---together we will achieve your dreams and grow into a true musician.

Chris is the most talented guitar teachers that I know. He has played out regularly and has the drive and know-how to prep you to play out. He knows theory and can explain the "why" of how things are played. His style is smooth and fluid. I would recommend him to every level of player as he is extremely knowledgeable and has a great deal of patience.
He books up quickly! Book your time slot before his schedule gets full!
Elaine Minionis
One of the things that I love the most about this teacher is that he makes you trust in yourself. He pushes you until you know that, even though it looks hard, YOU can do it through discipline and practice. And then you become surprised about yourself, and your relationship with your instrument immediately becomes stronger. Chris has years and years of experience teaching music. He is a multi-instrumentalist, absolutely talented and I would absolutely recommend him! Plus his sense of humor makes everything shinier. Wouldn't pick anybody else!

About Justin

Like most guitarists, I had always wanted to play the guitar as a little kid. Luckily, my parents finally caved to the request (ok ok, incessant begging) and I began my guitar journey at the age of 11. After now 20 years of playing and 12 years of teaching, I am excited to share my experience and t

Lisa
Justin is an excellent teacher!! He is a master guitarist, always punctual, very courteous and gives 100% to my lesson. I am learning classical guitar and jazz guitar with him and I am delighted with the progress I've made in just a few months. I am playing beautiful songs and before his lessons I could not play any classical guitar songs at all. Justin tailors the lessons to help me learn the songs I am excited about learning to play. I most highly recommend him as a teacher for any style guitar. Amazingly he also teaches ukulele and mandolin too! He has a degree from Cal Poly in music and guitar and has over 20 years teaching experience. If you really want to learn how to play guitar easily and quickly, take lessons with him!

He knows what strength my son has and always encourages my son to play better. Remi is also very accommodating to our need. He is willing to work with our schedule since my son is a Junior and busy with his school work/project. Thank you Remi for another successful year.

"I feel it's safe to say that Jason would be a great teacher for anyone. I am a 78 yr old who has been self-teaching classical/fingerstyle for years but to really make progress I need instruction from a good teacher. I had my first lesson with Jason and am confident that he will prove to be the right instructor for me. He is extremely skilled, versatile, patient, and definitely personalizes his instruction for the student. I am more enthused about playing than I’ve been for years – and only after one lesson!!"

"I was self taught for @ 5 months then decided to get lessons. I wanted a pro to be able to assess where I was at and give me the right instruction.

Tomas was able to to give me just that. He also taught me some neat strum patterns that made it fun. My wife really likes the sounds I can make with the guitar after only 2 lessons with Tomas.

On top of that he is a genuinely pleasant person to be around. I can tell he loves teaching people guitar.

My wife really likes the genre of music I am learning because she grew up with it. I like it as well as the finger skills that go along with it.

I believe this experience learning from Tomas will greatly influence the personal music style that I end up developing into."

"I have been taking lessons with Ahmad since June - I was referred by a mutual acquaintance. I bought myself a guitar for my birthday a year ago and realized I needed some outside motivation to play it. While I'm relatively new to guitar and this is my first time taking guitar lessons, I have been drumming for 13 years with private instruction and university courses. I would highly recommend Ahmad. He is inspiring, professional, informative, and patient; a shining example of what a great teacher should be.

Over the past five months, I've already seen significant improvement in both my guitar performance as well as my understanding of the guitar and music in general. Ahmad is very good at balancing the scale between creativity and technique, while never losing sight of what your goals are as a student. As with any learning process, I would suggest you understand your own goals and level of commitment before jumping in to lessons. As I've seen, Ahmad will probably motivate you to practice more than you originally thought, which I really appreciate. It's with practice and strong understanding that I've gotten to a point where I am proud of my abilities on the guitar. Work with Ahmad and I hope you find the same!"

"I started playing the classical guitar for just fun years ago, and lived in such remote areas that finding a teacher was impossible. As fortune had it, I moved to Tempe and hooked up with Jaxon through TakeLessons.com. He's a great instructor that is patient and won't ever make you feel bad about not having time to practice. He didn't immediately show off his amazing guitar playing ability, but instead directed all his attention at me, the student. His flexible teaching style helped me translate the music knowledge I already had onto the classical guitar. If you follow his methods, you'll be amazed at how fast you improve! I would highly recommend Jaxon to anyone even remotely thinking about playing classical guitar music."
