Private Guitar Teacher

I try to make my lessons as fun as possible, while still giving the student quality instruction. Proper technique and position will be taught, as well as a variety of repertoire. Musical elements, such as reading notation and rhythm will be taught as well so that students will fully benefit from the lesson. Not only classical, but also electric and acoustic.

About Omar

I am a guitarist from the Newark, NJ area. I have been playing the guitar for more than ten years. I have completed my classical guitar studies at New Jersey City University with a BA in Music Education. Not only do I teach classical, but I also teach acoustic and electric, as well as music theory.

One of my favorite things is playing acoustic guitar while singing. If this is your goal, I think we'd work well together. I also have a few guitar books that I use if you're interested in learning to play lead guitar in a band or orchestra, and learn to read music.

The best instructor of music I ever had. I have zero musical background. But as an adult, wanted for the first time exposure in music. After about 4 one session guitar lessons, each with a different instructor who all basically told me I was hopeless (didn't return my call/text to schedule a next session), never did I think that I would be 20 lessons and months of guitar and voice sessions in with the same teacher.
Because of Jillian, I can throw down chords on a guitar, and sing along while playing, something unimaginable foe someone as musically challenged and illiterate as myself.
My future in music, as an adult whose professional background is medicine and science, appears unfathomably bright. Because of a teacher who had the patience to believe.
Simon
I was somewhat skeptical about being to learn to play guitar online but I am sure glad I gave it a try because it was amazing. I've been trying to play the guitar for 20 years and I learned more in 45 minutes with Jillian than I have all this time. Thanks!
Mia
Jillian is an wonderful teacher. Kind, patient and warm. This is my daughters first time and she encouraged her throughout the lesson. Excellent teacher!

Online Guitar Teacher

I am a recent Berklee College of Music graduate living in Chicago. At Berklee, I was the first rock/metal guitarist to receive the "Jimi Hendrix Award." This award is given to the best guitarist at the school. I've played and studied many styles of music ranging from classical, traditional, blues, country, rock, and metal.
Besides teaching, I have a passion for songwriting and performance. Here in Chicago, I am currently playing with various bands and writing my own music. My teaching style is very "goal-oriented," and I will teach students to set short-term goals, medium goals, and then demonstrate to them how reaching the short and medium-term goals leads to accomplishing long-term goals. I envision teaching much like my teachings at Berklee where once my lesson was finished, I only wanted to go home and learn more. If you want to learn multiple styles from someone who is truly passionate about the instrument, I'm your guy!
