Private Classical Guitar Teacher

Classical guitar is warm, rich, and beautifully complex. It is a self-contained artform which needs no accompaniment. Classical guitar music is instantly gratifying, even at the beginner level. To unlock your highest potential, I'll help you learn proper picking as well as fret hand technique, sight reading, music theory, and fretboard logic. We will also study and learn chord voicings, voice leading, ear training, and sight-singing.

My teaching style is friendly, patient, and inclusive. I believe in a well rounded teaching approach through reading, as well as learning to play by ear.
I prefer to use these books for reading and developing good technique:

Aaron Shearer Classic Guitar Method vol. 1 and 2
Classical Guitar Duets: Charles Duncan
Franz Wohlfahrt Violin Etudes: 60 Studies
Frederick Noad Classical Guitar Technique, vol. 1 and 2
Matteo Carcassi: 25 Melodic And Progressive Studies
Andres Segovia: Twenty Studies For Guitar
Giuliani's 120 Studies For Right ...

I've been going to Jason for a few months now and I have significantly improved my playing ability and increased my music knowledge. Lessons are tailored to what I want to learn and there has been noticeable improvement even over a short period of time.

He is really patient and kind, and he got playing songs in days.
Leslie
Jason tailors the course to a student's individual learning pace and needs. There is also a good combination between theory and learning cords to play a song. Technique is emphasized to build good habits and a foundation for future growth.

I combine the styles of music that you prefer with some kind of method book for reading and theory. No purchasing of music is required. Normal lessons start with the previously assigned material, determining what we need to work on, new material, and ending with things to do at home.

Sean is great
NIMMI S.
Sean was a great teacher. I asked him if he knew how to teach Bollywood style Violin and even though he didn't he took the time to study it and learn just to teach me. I really appreciate that he was so open to trying so hard for his students. I think Sean is great!
Marc T.
Great first lesson. High hopes for follow lessons.

I self-taught myself guitar over 35 years ago; mostly forgotten. Sean began with establishing goals that would meet my goals. The feedback to me during the lessons was focused and delivered in a friendly manner. Progression was enhanced due to his manner and his approach to teaching. While this was the first lesson, I am looking forward to future lessons.

Spiros has been an ideal teacher for me, he has a wealth of experience to draw from and has a natural nack for teaching (Im an absolute beginner).
His teaching method gets you playing fast and doesn't skimp on theory and musicality - he doesn't simply have you learn tabs and songs, this was a huge plus for me. Highly recommend him.
Lynda Horvat
Excellent first lesson. Via Skype we covered common phrases, beginning grammar and vocabulary. Looking forward to my next lesson.

"Learn from a professional guitarist!

There's an advantage learning from someone who is actually paid to perform music. Get the perspective and tricks of the trade to sound good quickly. He plays the range from rock to standard classical fare like Tarrega and Bach.

He teaches using tab and regular notation which really gets you up to speed quickly on any piece. My previous guitar teachers didn't use tab so learning anything is a slog. I've already learned Lagrima, Bach's Air, Bach's Bourree, Romanza, Recuerdos de la Alhambra and Tears in Heaven in a relatively short time.

Jesse observes your fingerings very well and makes sure you use the most efficient methods.

Flexibility of scheduling was extremely important to me since I cannot be on a regular weekly schedule. Take Lessons and Jesse's flexible schedule makes that very easy."

Should Classical Violinists Learn to Improvise?

A few weeks ago the Washington Post published an article about musician Hannah Hanh and her struggles with improvisation.  As a classical violinist, she hadn't had much training for spontaneity, naturally. The article points out improvisation as a technique that has fallen by the wayside for many performers these days. And it asks an interesting question: Can (and should) classical musicians learn to improvise? We've talked a lot about improvising on the guitar and drums, but where do classi …
