An experienced guitar player of 15 years. Especially good with beginners including both very young and older students. It's never too early or late to start playing! Will cater a specific personal lesson plan to your desires to make sure we move at YOUR best pace. We'll build a solid foundation so that you can learn how to teach yourself and continue to grow and love music long after these lessons. We can get you up and running with your favorite tunes or start delving into the musical theory side of things. I make sure that our lessons are fun but also challenging and I make sure we spend some time learning how to build finger strength, how to improvise, and (most importantly) how to play with other musicians!

Mr. Carrion helped me immensely during my time with him, and I learned so much about how to be a great bass player. He taught me many things that I was not previously aware of and helped me with my college auditions. Overall, I had a really good time with him and he was a great help.

Guitar lessons with me are unique because although I am young, I am a very experienced teacher already. I started learning guitar at 10 years old. By the time I was 16 I was gigging and teaching kids in my neighborhood and any Craigslist clients I could find. At 18, I took a 1.5 year program at the Los Angeles College of Music, where I graduated with an AA in guitar performance. Since then I have worked as a professional musician, and also as a teacher /consultant with Adopt the Arts, a non profit started by Matt Sorum (drummer of Guns N Roses, Hollywood Vampires) and director Abby Berman. In my time at Adopt the Arts I have amassed over 4000 teaching hours of teaching kids ages 4-13, so I am very experienced with kids and get along with them great since. I have also been giving other private lessons to people of all ages since 2011. Qualities that make me stand out as a teacher are relatability, patience, and an ability to identify the proper pace for the student to enjoy the ...

Taught at the basic level very well. If you know nothing about music or guitar Tommy's your guy. Goes through all the simple steps at an even pace making the entire experience relaxing. From there giving you the knowledge of your scales and blues scales, teaching you how to make mini solos on the spot really helps out with the musicality of it all. 10/5

Hi!

I offer engaging and personalized guitar lessons for students. We build upon fundamentals skills through each lesson as the student learns their favorite songs. We also explore different aspects of music including improvisation, theory, composition, and even recording their own music. I provide study materials such as PDF files, backing tracks and videos to help students review what we cover in the lessons.

I had the privilege of receiving my B.A. in Guitar Performance from Berklee College of Music where I had the opportunity of learning and performing with great musicians from around the world. Because of my experience working with students of all ages from kids to adults, I truly believe that I can help anyone accomplish their musical goals!

I am currently only doing online lessons on Skype.

I look forward to meeting you and getting you started with lessons!

Best,

Juan

Matt's a great instructor with a holistic approach to music. His experience helped shape the way I think about the guitar beyond just the technicality — teaching me to focus on concept and creative intent. His appreciation for a wide range of styles also encouraged me to explore more interesting phrasing and develop my own style.

I was a relatively aimless player and Matt showed me how to apply myself to music. Highly recommended!
Andrew K.
Matt really helped me with my guitar playing. He patiently went over the basics with me and let me go at my own pace, using songs I like to help me improve my technique, confidence, and knowledge of scales and chords.

"I wrote on the wall years ago that I want to be, "a working, living, joy," and know it is important to be around someone who is working, practicing, and living the subject matter of which you desire. For one can read, watch, visualize and theorize for a long time...and so much more. But being around someone is different.
Indigo has helped me across the board, directly and indirectly. Directly, in that she has shown me some fundamentals "I need" to work on in order to achieve and generate the ideas within the self. Indirectly, in so much that a student can see her familiarity with her instrument (instrument being guitar and self) and a more proper persona to take on in order to facilitate being musical.
Furthermore, I have been to some of her shows since taking lessons, and seen her play with different bands (as a leader) in a very short amount of time. Indigo is working, writing, practicing, breathing, and ultimately living that joy right in front of my face. And she shares it with a strong diligence and patience. I can go on and on...But I'm Ticking Like a Time Bomb! Louie"

"My dream instructor

When I first heard about Take Lessons and the ability to take guitar lessons over Skype, I was skeptical. Turns out it has been an amazing effective and convenient way for me to learn guitar. At one point I was a very active musician, mostly playing bass guitar, but I had not played a lot in the last 10 years. Eric has been able to expand my knowledge, my dexterity, and just my overall enjoyment of guitar in the few months I have been taking lessons with him. I was always a solid player, but Eric has been able to add a new layer of ability and really increase my skills. I recommend him to anyone who asks me about taking guitar lessons!!"

"I've been seeing Ahmad for about 2-3 months now, and thought a review might be in order to help those looking for guitar lessons.

First off I'm an intermediate player, who has successfully avoided theory since I started playing. Coming to Ahmad for some help to hit the next level, he's cunningly introduced theory into the curriculum, but made it fun to do so with creative exercises I can take home and work on. For the last month I've seen my understanding of playing the guitar improve, and he's also helped with the creative side using the tools I have at my disposal.

I've been through a few teachers in my time, and Ahmad's understanding, patience and vim for guitar really shine through. Would definitely recommend for whatever stage you're at."

"So it's been a month since I began lessons. I never took a guitar lesson in my life before I began studying under Greg and while there are subtle things you will learn from teachers just from watching them, Greg will teach you them through action to the point where you seemingly discover it on your own and then he gives you a look and you articulate this revelation and he explains how you came to that conclusion in a way that you can relate to. That is the highest level of teaching. He motivates you to do you best and puts the appropriate level of pressure for you to complete your goals. These goals are attainable, manageable and he's able to disseminate them in half hour sessions. I am 1000x the player I was from years of trying to figure out guitar on my own in 1 month and I can't wait to learn more from him. Greg is the real deal."
