About Stewart

Hello There! My name is Stewart, I am a guitarist and singer-songwriter living in California! I graduated from the University of California at Santa Barbara in 2011 with a Bachelor's Degree in Music. I have played guitar since the age of 14 and have been a passionate music fanatic my entire life.

Stewart is so kind, thoughtful, and talented! I have had two other guitar teachers before him and Stewart is by far the best. Stewart makes learning guitar so fun by telling me music history, helping me with my own songs that I am writing, and teaching me really cool songs! There are so many things that I like about Stewart, but the thing that I like the most is the way that he teaches me songs that I like. He askes me what song I want to learn how to play and teaches it to me. My other guitar teachers would teach straight out of the book which could become boring after a while. Stewart also gives me great music suggestions to learn too! He introduces me to bands and artists that he knows that I would like. Stewart is very confident at distance and in-person learning too! The lessons go very smoothly! Stewart even makes additional videos that he sends me so I can understand it better. Stewart is very enthusiastic, fun, and kind. I feel very lucky to have Stewart as my guitar teacher! No one else could come anywhere close to comparing to him!!
Jorge
Stewart has been amazing with my son. He started when he was 5 and a half years old and he is now 7. I have seen my son's skills grow over the time Stewart has been teaching him.

He is very accommodating, every once in a while last minute things come up because as they always do, but Stewart is very flexible and accommodated to my needs.

Stewart is also very skilled. My son has had some unique request for songs he wants to learn, for example "Zelda needs a ladder Deadmou5e mix" and Stewart was able to figure out the music notes in no time and taught him that song all in one 30 minute class.

Stewart is great with my son and very patient he wants the kids to enjoy the learning process and not be a drag. The homework he assigns is easy to follow that even I started learning the guitar from the homework my son is given.

Can't say enough good things about Stewart.
Santosh Dornal
Stewart has been teaching guitar to my 7 year old son for over a year now and we couldn't be much happier with his lessons. Ever since the lock down we have switched to online lessons and things have sailing smooth. Stewart is very responsible tutor with excellent communication. He sends reminders on the day my son has the class and follows up with notes to practice after the class. I am clearly able to see the progress my son is making. My son thoroughly enjoys his lessons and haven't had any complaints so far. I would highly recommend Stewart to any one who wants take guitar lessons.

I am a self-taught musician with 15 years of experience playing electric and acoustic guitar. My lessons begin by learning what inspires you as a musician, and working to take you where you want to go! Learning some of your favorite songs is often a great place to start. By learning a variety of music, you'll quickly begin to notice patterns & understand basic theory on what notes work together well. From there, you can apply that knowledge to improvisation, as well as songs you may want to write!

From those first few lessons, there's a million different ways we can explore the guitar together. With my lessons, I offer recording time in my home studio where you can learn how to write, record, produce, and mix fully arranged songs!

Reach out to say hi, and let me know what some of your immediate goals and questions are!

Specialties: Indie, Rock, Pop, Alternative, Psychedelic, Folk, Acoustic.
Open to students of all ages.

Mitch gave lessons to my son about 6 years ago (when Mitch still lived in St. Louis). He still picks up the guitar a few times each week to unwind, and often mentions things Mitch taught him while practicing.

The goal I have for my students is that they will fall in love with music. From the beginning my students will develop skills in :

-Theory

-Improvisation

-Note reading

-Composition

-Ear training

-Musical Interpretation

-Confidence and poise

-Initiative

-Attention span and concentration

-Visual and aural memory

-Time management and organizational skills

I primarily focus on popular music styles, but I do offer a classical focus if the student has interests in that realm. I primarily teach via the discovery method; Which makes learning more active so that the students grasp concepts more effectively and develop the ability to learn independently.

I understand that every student's interests, goals and learning styles vary. As an instructor I teach accordingly with custom made lesson plans that cater to who you are as a student. Whether you are studying to pursue therapeutic/recreational goals or studying to pursue professional ...

I have been under the instruction of Noah for a little over two months now and I really enjoy his teaching style. I am older and not a proficient reader of music so Noah has had to start with very basic skills for me. He has done a great job of making it understandable. I am learning to read music and to play the ukulele at the same time, and am enjoying the online lessons.

Noah has been a fantastic Giutar teacher and really takes the time tillI I understand it , he is really knowledgeable and inspirational .

My kids (ages 10 & 12) have had such a wonderful time learning with Noah. He is patient, kind, and encouraging as well as knowledgeable. He does a great job with beginners -- they are learning so many skills each week. And it has been such a blessing to us that he comes to our home!

My teenage daughter has had a few teachers over the years, but he’s the first to help her learn to read actual music, teach her to restring her guitar, and provide a true musician’s perspective that keeps her interested and excited to learn. His focus on classical as a springboard for all other music genres is refreshing. We are thrilled to have found this gem of an instructor, his love for music and guitar is infectious and inspiring."

How to Simplify Your Live Guitar Rig for Performances

Playing the guitar is such a fantastic experience. It’s so relieving to be on stage or in your designated practice space and just wail on your instrument. However, one of the difficulties of being a guitar player is deciding what gear is needed for live performances. We often get trapped in thinking that we must have the biggest and loudest guitar rig for shows, accompanied by a pedalboard equipped with 30+ pedals. Don’t get me wrong, there is something extremely satisfying about plugging in …
