Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I offer lessons in Guitar for all levels, having 5+ years of teaching experience and 12 in music education. I've taught children from 7 years old to adults 60+ from many different backgrounds, and my lessons are always structured the same way: To serve your needs, your goals and allow you to enjoy the process of learning.

I began playing when I was 11, and I find that for any beginner, it's important to start with material that gets instant "musical" sound from the guitar. This consists on learning the chords to your favorite songs, some easy riffs or melodies, and dicovering the path you want to take on the instrument. Once you get more advanced, technical aspects like music theory and how to use it creatively take a more important role in the lessons. For advanced players, I will find your strengths and weaknesses, and we will work on maintaining those strengths while slowly improving on the weaknesses, which may be technical, theoretical or even psychological. If you are more ...

Alongside the general guitar techniques and methods, I like to focus on the aspects that are important to acoustic specifically, such as chord voicings, alternate tunings, fingerstyle, and hybrid picking

About Christian

My name is Christian L. and I am a 29 year old guitar/music instructor in the Orlando area. My interest in guitar began when I was 12 years old and blossomed into a full time obsession about 3 years later when I started playing small gigs as a solo guitarist playing simple jazz and classical pieces

Joseph
Christian was super helpful and helped me get a better idea of how i want to learn. Thanks so much!
Mayra
Christian is not only a talented musician, but he is also a true guitar teacher. So far, I have taken 4 classes and I've learned more with his methods than any other way. I've had tried from the Fender Play app, YouTube videos, to other instructors, but nothing compares to his teachings. He is patient and truly pays attention to what I am struggling with. He breaks everything down piece by piece. If one way doesn't work, he tries a different way until I understand. As mentioned before, he is a gifted teacher. One thing is to be a great guitar player who teaches how to play a few chords, and another is to be a great guitar player who puts him/herself in the student's shoes and help them progress with each lesson. He is one of a kind. Thanks, Christian!
Kevin G.
Christian was beyond what I have expected and look forward to our next sessions ...great teacher and took time to show and explain the correct way of playing

"My teen-age sons, 15 and 13, have enjoyed a great summer of guitar lessons from Jordan. He has been a pleasure to work with and extremely professional and conscientious as an instructor, easily working around our challenging summer schedule. Jordan is my boys' fourth or fifth guitar instructor, and I'm so happy to report that they are more enthusiastic about guitar and practicing more than they have in the past! My boys, who both have ADHD, have appreciated his patient, calm and friendly approach. They say he "doesn't get frustrated", that he is open minded and really makes things understandable. We would definitely recommend him as an instructor, and hope to continue taking lessons from him in the future!"
