Private Classical Guitar Teacher

I have taught guitar since 2012 and have been playing since 2000. I am happy to take students at the beginner and intermediate levels. I believe strongly in integrating music theory and ultimately moving students toward musical self-suffiency, rather than focusing exclusively on learning particular pieces.

About Ben

Hi, there! My name is Ben and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2012 and have taught students of all ages from 3 to adult. I have experience not just with teaching but also with writing, recording, and performing music in successful bands and on multiple instruments

Ben has character attributes one would like to find in a teacher, knowledge, patience and presence! Looking forward to our next lesson. Thanks Ben!
Aena
Fantastic, patient and kind ukelele instructor. I recommend Ben without reservation.
Thanks Ben!
Kamal
Ben has been instructing my 2 kids (now aged 11 and 9) in-home for at least 5 years. We started off with piano for the first few years but then switched to a combination of piano and acoustic guitar (half a session dedicated to each instrument).

He is patient, kind, and highly knowledgeable. I clearly see the upward trajectory in my kids' musical capabilities. One of my kids can be difficult to deal with, especially when he is tired, but Ben would mold his approach to the lesson on the spot to keep my kid engaged (e.g., instead of continuing the lesson on the actual piano, he'd switch to a fun music-oriented game).

Even it was my first lesson I can feel the progress and I am confident about achieving my goal. Thanks Ian!!

Ian is fantastic teacher. He was so patient with my toddler daughter. And when she became fuzzy during the class, Ian could be so creative to always come out with a way to calm her down and redirect her attention to other musical things. I would love him to be my daughter’s music teacher for as long as possible if I did not have to move.

Ian is very knowledgeable and is great in explaining theory and great in demonstrating so you can understand.

Sylivan is a great teacher with great personality. He was there to help me not only when I struggled with music and guitar but also when I felt down. I asked him why he cared so much and he told me a healthy mind is most important which helps in music learning =) Sylivan is also patient; even sometimes I can't stand myself but he was there to help me to learn lol He has passion in teaching and you can see it once he's in action.

Do you want to unlock the mysteries of the guitar fretboard? Learn to play songs, improvise for the first time or explore new ideas for improvisation, study rhythmic grooves and learn to keep and feel the beat. Guitar can be a vehicle for your souls' deepest expression and also a form of practicing meditation. I began teaching before I attended Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. After Berklee, I performed in several bands, toured Europe and worked as a sound engineer for both live and studio settings including several festivals in Costa Rica.. I can help guide you with creating your own sound recordings if desired. Whether you are just getting started or an experienced guitarist looking for some unique perspective I'd love to help you find a new groove! My favorite styles to play are rock, reggae, R&B and the blues but I also play funk, jazz and classical guitar. Drop me a line today!

About Jennifer

I began playing guitar at 12 years old. Before that I had dappled with the piano and always sang. There was something about the guitar that just drew me in! I always loved seeing the hands of guitar players and the sounds that would accompany those shapes. Guitar is a very pattern based instrum

Want to play your favorite songs? Want to write your own? While focusing primarily on technique and theory, we'll also spend at least part of each lesson being creative together, whether improvising, or writing something, or just playing a game, because I believe that to be a well-rounded musician is to know how to communicate one's own ideas fluently. We'll also explore a variety of styles, including rock, country, pop, folk, and jazz, and we will learn songs both using a pick and using the fingers. I can also teach students to actually read music and not just tablature, if they're interested in exploring jazz and classical music. Message me today to see if we'd be a good match!

About Kyle

I am a professional violinist, violist, guitarist, pianist, composer, and educator. In addition to recording and touring with my own bands, I regularly arrange and record strings for artists and producers in a wide range of styles, from underground rappers to indie rock bands to grammy winning pop

Online Classical Guitar Teacher

I love classical guitar, and I am passionate about not only helping students grow as musicians, but to grow in their passion for music as well.

I teach classical guitar and host an instructional YouTube channel. I received professional training at the University of Washington in Seattle, and I have taken lessons with the composer/guitarist Kevin Callahan.

I have taught students from age 4 to 80, and I know how to make learning enjoyable for the young and less young. I have learned how to be an encouraging and constructive instructor as I train students in how to play and practice.

Performance and instructional videos are available on my YouTube channel, which can be found by searching for my name.

Thank you!

In addition to professional university and private teaching, I have benefitted from attending performances and masterclasses by many of the world's foremost classical guitarists, including Xuefei Yang, Jorge Caballero, Marcin Dylla and Fabio Zanon. I have a great deal of experience studying theo

Brian is a fantastic teacher and an amazing guitarist. He gears the lessons to the students needs and makes the lessons very enjoyable.
Brad
My daughter has been taking ukulele lessons from Brian for several years. First of all, her skills and confidence have soared. She enjoys playing and practicing and will often just start strumming and practicing when she has spare time.

Brian's patience, skill and enthusiasm are a huge reason for my daughter's ukulele success. He is also very flexible in scheduling classes and accommodating interruptions.

I cannot recommend Brian enough. Anyone needing ukulele or guitar instruction, would do well in considering him.
Sheila Dorame
My son had been taking lessons for about 4 years before he began working Brian. Our son was looking to learn more about music theory and exploring writing his own music. This is exactly what he received when he began working with Brian. Brian would send him home with weekly lessons and my son was excited to explore this Avenue of music theory and creating his own music. Brian unlocked our son’s creativity and gave him a much needed confidence boost. Brian was extremely flexible with our sons schedule which is a plus, with a teenager who has other activities. My son feels that Brian took his skills to the next level and opened his creativity window to explore other playing styles. Brian exudes patience, kindness, creativity, and a passion for teaching others his love for guitar. We are thankful for Brian’s dedication to our son, it’s such a joy when our son plays for us. Trust me, you can’t go wrong with Brian

I am a 78 yr old who has been self-teaching classical/fingerstyle for years but to really make progress I need instruction from a good teacher. I had my first lesson with Jason and am confident that he will prove to be the right instructor for me.

"I signed up to play guitar for "The Sound of Music" with Burbank Community Theater, and after I got the music I realized I was way over my head. So, I went to Mike hoping to get a lot of help. He's amazing. First, he sight-read all of my music, which is crazy. Then he was able to simplify it for me so I could play it and still make it sound good. If it wasn't for him I wouldn't have been able to do the show. And now that I've done the show successfully I have a whole new range of skills on the guitar and playing the songs I love is way easier.

I'm so grateful for Mike and everything he's taught me!"

A Little Bit of Country: Easy Classic Country Songs for Guitarists

If you're a fan of classic country music, you've come to the right place. Here, guitar teacher Willy M. shares his favorite classic country songs for guitarists... I grew up in the late '70s and early '80s in the rural Midwest when "Hee-Haw," a country television program, was something that everyone knew about. It was the Grand Ole Opry’s rendition of a high-theatrical experience, and a showcase for classic country artists to play their tunes. Willie Nelson, one of my favorite songwr …
