Guitar is my first and primary instrument. I love it so much because it is one of the most diverse instruments in the world. With that being said I try to be not only a diverse player but musician in general. This past year I performed in GFA's (Guitar Foundation of America) competition with my guitar quartet and as a soloist.

Chris is the most understanding, invested, and patient guitar teacher I have ever had. I have been playing for 11 years, and about 6 years into that I began learning classical guitar from Chris. He was able to teach me anything from beginner level until I was ready for advanced techniques. Very responsible and the best experience I’ve had with any guitar teacher.

Chris is a CHEAT - he took our money and just vanished - made up many excuses via canceling classes and ultimately stopped responding to texts. He broke both my kid's confidence and till now they are very sad!

Great first lesson with Chris !

Please Read : OVERVIEW just below this, Thank you.

The Best way to achieve being a Great Guitar Player is buy Studying Music Theory, Learning Proper Technique and form on the Guitar. Anyone can just learn Chords or Songs buy just Practicing, even though you may be wrong and not know why. But to be Trained and develop the Correct way is 100% Faster, and help to eliminate any obstacles that you would encounter otherwise. You also would have a complete understanding of what you're doing, How it all works, and why.

I cannot say enough good things about paul. First, despite having so many years of playing, he doesn't judge or look down on you for not having the same level of knowledge he has. Instead - he is able to communicate concepts, both basic and advanced, to you in a way that you can understand. Second, he caters to you in order to achieve the goals you want to achieve, not the ones he thinks you should have. Lastly, he's clearly passionate about playing, and music in general. he's a great guy to chat about, seems really down to earth, and goes above and beyond in order to make the most of the lesson.

I cannot say enough good things about paul. Highly recommend you take his lessons!

As a young female, I was apprehensive about choosing a male teacher that teaches in his home. However, Paul has been professional and I have not had any concerns since meeting him and working with him. He is a well-planned, experienced teacher who artfully progresses students from week to week in a manner that is constructive and fun. In only 5 weeks I have learned more about playing guitar and guitar theory than I would have thought. He has been attentive to my goals and it is precisely the experience that I pay for.

For example: at the time I was really into some classic rock songs, so he took those and made fantastic lessons out of them, starting with fundamentals and on.

"I have taken two classical guitar lessons with Mandy, she is a great guitar teacher. She is patient to explain skills in detail and demonstrate performance clearly. The lesson time is fully utilized and the end time is reached unconsciously, I was totally immersed in the classical guitar world. Even though I'm still learning and enhancing the basic techniques, I can see my great progress. I strongly recommend Mandy!"

"Michael is a great teacher. He really cares about his students and takes teaching seriously. Currently, I am learning Jazz and Blues from him, and it is so much fun to learn new licks, theories, and applications. Michael really tries hard not to make me feel bored. He sends out weekly practice schedules after each lesson, which I think is very helpful. Overall, I think I was very fortunate that I have him as a teacher. I highly recommend Michael as your guitar teacher.
p.s. you can learn jazz and blues via Skype, which I think is super-cool."

5 Delightful Jazz Guitar Licks - Tabs and Audio

Having a few guitar licks up your sleeve is super helpful when you're improvising. Guitar teacher Samuel B. shares a few of his favorite jazz guitar licks... Before we begin playing these jazz guitar licks, it's a good idea to get familiar with the pentatonic scale. The pentatonic scale is a more versatile and useful scale than you might think. While being an easily-recognized basis for blues, rock, and country solos, it can be (and frequently is) a scale used for jazz solos, too. A …
