Private Classical Guitar Teacher

Chris grew up hearing his dad play guitar around the house and at live shows. He “caught the bug” around age 13 and hasn’t stopped playing since!

He’s taught about two dozen lessons a week for the better part of 10 years; from age 8 to retiree, beginner to advanced, hobbyist to college-prep or gig-ready. He specializes in blues, rock, improvisation, ‚Äčand songwriting. What he loves most about teaching is being able to pass on everything he has learned and continues to learn in his 20+ years as a musician, helping students take step after step to achieve their musical goals.

My 15 year-old son started guitar this summer. He has truly enjoyed working with Chris. Chris is patient and encouraging, as well as being a cool guy that my son looks up to.
Helen
My 13-years old son was reluctant to take music lessons. He had not liked piano (with a different instructor) when he was younger, but agreed to try guitar. Since the first trial lesson, he has been excited to learn more!

Chris is a fun teacher who knows his stuff and who communicates well with both his students and their parents. I have three kids and have found it’s difficult to find a teacher who is responsive to parents + engaging with youth + gifted at music.

His rates are very reasonable for our area. His in-home lesson space is professional and comfortable — I get to sit on a comfy couch and get work done during my son’s weekly lesson. In addition, Chris goes above and beyond to make sure the lessons are meeting our expectations. He tracked down strings for us when we accidentally broke one. He has rescheduled lessons due to our busy schedules. He is genuinely kind and such a pleasure to work with — we couldn’t be more thrilled!
Brian
Our kids have loved working with Chris. He picks songs they're excited to play, teaches them patiently, and has a lot of fun with them. They've made a ton of progress since they started with Chris, and they're always excited to see him!

Zach has been great to work with! I look forward to every lesson.
Chas E.
My first lesson with Zach was great! 5 stars. He asked the right questions as to what aI am looking to do. And we quickly came up with a lesson plan that with the right amount of work in my part will get me headed in the right direction. Zach does a great job of making his students feel comfortable and good about their abilities.

Great experience with Zach. I'm still learning how to sing properly, though.

I've been teaching one-on-one lessons for about 25yrs, in Guitar, Bass, & Drums. Lessons are personalized & tailored to each student's needs & goals, in their own style of learning. No matter your age or ability, whether just for fun to learn a favorite song or something long term and serious, I do it all. I have a lot to share with you in all styles of music and playing. Together we can shave years off your learning curve. And if you'd like to know theory, and how to write and produce your own songs, we'll do that too! Let me know if you have any questions, and if you'd like to see references from former students! Hope to connect with you soon!

Mike has been a fabulous teacher for our son for the past 2 years! Mike allows Gabriel to try lots of new music while still teaching him the fundamentals of guitar. He has provided a safe and creative space for our son to musically grow in. We couldn't be happier with him as a teacher.
Don
Mike is a patient, qualified guitar teacher for me. I am a beginner older adult. Mike is creating lessons that are in the style I want to learn.
I am getting much more than just 30 or 60 minutes a week. He puts together lessons and songs of interest, that he emails to me between lessons.
Very glad to have found Mike.

I’ve tried a few online lesson services, but the weekly one on one with Mike has kept me more motivated and challenged. So for me, he is a much better fit.
Mitchell
I've had mike for many years now. I'm always excited to see him and learn/play guitar with him. He is kind, nice and a really good friend.

Shoshana is an excellent teacher. Very patient and the best part is she listens to students. She was very flexible with me if we got to a song I didnt like/enjoy she was willing to go to one that was a better fit. She feels you learn better if you are working in something you want to play.

Shoshana is an outstanding music teacher! Not only do we see real growth and development in our kids’ musical abilities, but she nurtures a love of music and provides an especially warm environment for learning. She is a gem!

"Remi was wonderful for my 9 year old son's 1st lesson. The online class is very convenient for our schedule. Although it presents a slight challenge in communication, Remi was able to easily overcome this challenge by writing on a small marker board and holding those notes up to the camera for us to see. He was very patient, and we surprisingly covered a lot of information in a short period of time. I was very impressed with Remi's ability to catch my son's technical errors while attempting to play the designated exercises that he had prepared for him. My son absorbed the introductory lesson like a sponge and can't wait until the next lesson. I am very pleased with Remi and hope to see my son improve over the next several weeks."
