Our (then) 8 years old daughter took guitar lessons by Anthony last year. Anthony is a great teacher with a lot of humor, patience and expertise. It worked perfectly for our daughter and she loved the lessons and learned a lot. We would highly recommend Anthony to others.

Michael L.

Los Gatos, CA

About Michael

I am formerly a resident of Seattle who recently moved down to the Bay Area. I now attend San Jose State for Music Ed. I studied music at the University of Washington and my fortes include jazz, blues, classical, pop, punk, metal, theory, songwriting, ear training and generally learning to speak on your instrument. I work with all levels of ability and commitment. Realize your passion and start playing music today! I tend to be laid back and relaxed but focused in my lessons. I will use a combination of method books and worksheets of my own construction. I also utilize recording equipment so the student can hear what he or she sounds like. The focus of these lessons can be tailored to the student- s/he can learn to read or simply jam on his or her favorite songs. *** ...

learning an instrument is fun! My 10 year old son is really enjoying playing guitar with Michael. He is learning some serious stuff mixed with playing chords from his favourite bands. My 8 year old daughter has also started piano with him and she has really progressed in her playing in only 6 weeks or so. Michael is very patient and great with them and they really look forward to him coming every week. I would recommend him highly

ABOUT TAKE LESSONS
I came across TakeLessons and was skeptical about what I would find. The customer service has been excellent (thank you Rafael!). Okay, like any company that would like you to enroll in their service, you might find them pushy. But if you're really interested in learning music of any sort, then go to TakeLesons to get your start. I did and I'm happy :-#

ABOUT BRANDEN
As a "grown up", finding guitar lessons around the Bay Area is no easy task. I was pretty sure Branden would be impatient and patronizing given I'm really old and don't know the ABCs of music.

I was very, very nervous driving up to Branden's with my acoustic guitar. I mean, would he just look at me and say you're too old to learn anything?

What a refreshing surprise! My fears were imaginary.

I've had 2 lessons so far. Branden is easy going, absolutely gets it and is no-fuss. We stick to our lessons, he is quick to point out where I'm going wrong and very patient #please don't change that Branden!#. He also highlights techniques to help learn smarter. Make sure you take your notebook with you when you go, he gives homework and it would be nice if you track it in the same place.

Also, I'm worried about booking appointments at different times and TakeLessons/Branden assured me that can be worked out later. Good to know.

Branden is a great bass guitar teacher.

Branden is a great teacher. He is skilled and patient. He understands that beginners want to get started on challenging songs as soon as possible and he helps with that. After 3 months of lessons, he helped me get accepted to my school's jazz band.

Jesse M.

Palo Alto, CA

Beginners
Learn to find the notes on your instrument and read simple pieces, as well as all the theory to back up all concepts. Explore the basic methods of fretting and finger picking. Play simple pieces primarily in first position in major keys.

Intermediate
Expand upon your theory to include all three types of minor keys (natural, harmonic, and melodic). Start to traverse the neck in pieces.

Advanced
Start to apply prior concepts to arrangement and improvisation. Take music off the page, and begin to live it.

About Jesse

My Background I've been playing with classical ensembles and rock bands since 2001. Even though I started on classical trombone and rock guitar, I have come to expand my repertoire to a variety of instruments and genres. During my time in college I performed with the University choir, orchestra, and band. I also have organized, wrote/arranged for, and performed with a variety of bands in my home state of New Mexico, as well as Japan, and the San Francisco Bay Area. Since 2006 I have been an active teacher. This profession has taken me everywhere from working with classical guitar classes in New Mexico high schools to Elementary students in Japan to a variety of private students of various musical instruments and genres everywhere I've been. Since relocating to the Bay Area in ...

Jesse is a fantastic teacher. Really loved the way he had my daughter start working immediately on popular songs from her favorite artists--that was just a wonderful way of keeping her interested while also working on basics. He always tries to get her to think for herself about what's she's doing. He also has the patience of a saint for those lessons when she seems to be mentally out of it!

Jesse is a great instructor. I'm an adult who had no experience with music before. He is very patient and finds new ways to explain concepts I don't understand the first time. He uses my favorite songs to teach me new skills. He also takes time to find other songs for me to play. He urges me to do my best, and not to be afraid to make mistakes. I have learned a great deal about music and can hardly wait to go to my lessons!

Jesse gave me a great run-down on what he was working with my son on his lessons and my son was quite pleased with his lessons. Unfortunately even this short period of time, his workload at school prevented him from practicing enough.

Greg D.

Tracy, CA

About Greg

I started playing guitar in the 5th grade and in middle school began playing in rock groups. At the beginning of high school, I started teaching in some of the local music stores in the area. While wanting more from my playing, I started classical guitar lessons with an Andre Segovia student, Rani Cochran, and soon started lessons from Warren Nunes, a top jazz guitarist in the Bay Area. While continuing to take lessons in both types of music, I majored in Music at the local college. There I played in the jazz band and in guitar ensembles. After receiving my A.A. degree, I took classical guitar lessons with Larry Ferrara at the Conservatory of Music in San Francisco. At this point I transferred to San Jose State University and received a B.A. in guitar performance and a B.A. in ...
