Private Guitar Teacher

I have played blues, hard rock, fingerpicking, folk, and jazz music on the guitar since 2006. I have played onstage in rock bands and jazz combos and received years of private instruction. I am a chronic improviser, a composer, a creative musician, and a music theory geek.

My enthusiasm for the guitar is related to its irreplaceable role in genres that are uniquely and beautifully American like blues, bluegrass, and rock 'n' roll.

I can teach you how to play the basics, how to solo, how to write a song, how to play jazz chords, how to play rock riffs, how to groove, how to fingerpick, or whatever you want to learn.

Check out my guitar lesson demo video on my profile to hear me play!

Alex has inspired my son to love playing music for the rest of his life. I can't think of a more wonderful gift. His technique in teaching allowed my son to enjoy learning guitar by playing songs he wanted to play. This made him want to practice just for the fun of it! Alex taught my son from the time he was 9 years old until he was 15. The easy going, positive attitude Alex exudes encouraged my son along his journey and made a strong bond and connection between the two of them. I wholeheartedly encourage anyone who would like to learn to play guitar to sign up for lessons with Alex!
Christopher
Alex is a superb teacher and is very patient and well schooled. I look forward to my lessons every Friday.
Krystal
Alex is incredibly knowledgeable and great with students off every age group! I took lessons from him for five years and my only regrets were not having more time to practice so I could get more out of my lesson times.
During lessons we worked on sight reading, ear training, memorizing chords and scales, different picking and strumming patterns, theory lessons, and anything else that I discovered and wanted to try.

Private Guitar Teacher

Experienced guitar instructor of over 10 years, offering highly-personalized lessons built around the musical preferences, needs and goals of my students. I teach students of all ages in a warm, welcoming, LGBTQIA+ friendly environment.

For beginner students the focus will be primarily on getting you able to play songs from artists you love quickly and enjoyably, with a focus on developing good rhythm, technique, guitar care and a solid foundation of chords that can be used in innumerable songs. Theory will be given in small, easily-digestible pieces, and always within the context of actual musical examples. If you're interested in learning to sing while playing, I'll also help you find ways to incorporate it early on so that it becomes more natural as you progress.

For students with some experience the direction of our lessons will be largely determined by your personal needs and goals, but subjects we might cover include songwriting, finger-picking, expanding chord vocabulary, ...

Morgan worked with me to better understand how to work with composers to score films, and he even ended up scoring one of my passion projects. His depth of knowledge is outstanding, and has helped me create stronger connections with professionals in the music industry. If you work with Morgan, whatever level you're at, you won't be disappointed.
Chuck
Morgan started teaching my daughter beginner piano back in 2016 when she was 5 years old. A funny thing happened about a year into lessons. My wife and I had taken a video of our daughter playing the piano and we showed it to some friends. Turns out these friends know someone on the board of the Juilliard School, and when this person saw the video they reached out to my wife and I and said that they were going to recommend our daughter to a colleague of theirs at the Colburn School here in Los Angeles. So now my daughter is enrolled in a world-class performing arts school lol. Granted, my daughter is very enthusiastic about music and she puts the time in, but Morgan steers the ship in a great way. We're super grateful for this dude.

Hey everyone! I spend most of my time touring the world with A list pop artists as guitarist/multi-instrumentalist, but in my spare time I love passing along the gift of music via teaching. I've been playing guitar for half my life, and in addition to guitar I can also teach beginner bass, piano, drums and music production. I've taught all different kinds of students, ranging in age and ability. I tailor my lessons specifically for each students needs, and to match their personalities and interests. Wanna learn how to play a Taylor Swift song? Sick! Wanna learn a blues chord progression? Awesome! Wanna learn how to shred like a Norwegian death metal god? I got you!

"When only the best will do!

In 1977 I was taking guitar lessons and although I was developing as a guitarist I was not being taught the styles and techniques I really wanted to learn. Jeff was recommended by a bass player I went to school with and I went by the store he taught at, Guitar Corner in Arcadia to meet him and discuss what he could teach me.
After a 15 minute meeting I started taking lessons with Jeff and he took me from being somewhat frustrated with my instrument to truly understanding it and being able to make it do what I had imagined it doing. Within six months I had people thinking I'd been playing for 5 years or more. Jeff will make you sound good FAST!
He will help you with technique and teach YOU what YOU want to know. I was amazed and so will you! He is a great musician who has "lived the Blues" and puts 100% of his heart and soul into every note.
Learning from Jeff Stetson is an honor and you will not be disappointed.

"Ahmad is a fantastic teacher, and not just for beginners but for experienced players as well!
I've been playing guitar for about 20 years, but haven't taken any formal lessons in the past 15 of those. I felt like I was in a rut with my playing so I started taking lessons with Ahmad a few months ago. He was able to immediately help me improve my technique and help me correct some inefficiencies that I didn't even notice I was doing. The word "inefficiencies" in the last sentence was chosen very deliberately because Ahmad has a great way of showing that there are multiple ways to play the instrument and not one specific "right" and "wrong" way.
I feel like I've made more progress in the last 4 months than I had in years."

He has a great in-home studio which is perfect for guitar lessons and I've have learned a lot from him and I look forward to his classes each week.
