Private Electric 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 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).
Lauren
I hadn't played a musical instrument since elementary school when I started Ukulele lessons with Ben. Ben started from the beginning, answered all my questions along the way, and built upon that information in each lesson. It wasn't in a didactic way, but in a way that was really customized to fit my Ukulele lesson goals. Ben's teaching style is very flexible also. I had some Ukulele lesson books I had been gifted and we worked from those. I didn't feel that I had to buy a bunch of additional equipment, books, etc.

I recommend Ben as a music teacher. He is understanding, encouraging, and inspirational. I am looking forward to continuing lessons with Ben and JC Instrumental.
Pam
Ben has been working with our daughter since January 2019, when she turned 6 1/2. He arrives at our home on time each week and he works with her at an age appropriate level. We appreciate that he recognizes the effort she puts into the weeks when she practices often and he gently makes her aware when she hasn't practiced enough. He always speaks with her in a kind way and with us in a collaborative manner. We all want her to enjoy her piano experience, and we are thankful to have found Ben just a few blocks away from our home.

I've been taking lessons with Eric for 5 years now and continue to sound better and better! The focus of lessons has changed as I've progressed, including more forward placement and chest/mixed voice (to sing pop and rock after years of liturgical, choral singing with a darker, more head voice sound). Lately we've focused more on vowel modification and embodying the style and rhythm of songs. As I've gotten better, lessons changed from exercises and warmups to more singing through songs. I've gotten more and more confident in my singing and my voice is in the best shape it's ever been, so I highly recommend Eric!
Andrew
Eric has helped my singing a lot. I could see my range increasing even after the first few lessons, really.
Justin
Eric is a fantastic teacher! He is clearly very experienced and wastes no time in getting right to what is going to help you. His approach has made me a better singer very rapidly. Thanks Eric!

Private Electric Guitar Teacher

Electric Guitar has always been my favorite instrument, since the first time I picked it up almost 20 years ago. Although I’m deeply in love with the style of Rock and Metal, I also learned and specialized in the style of Blues, Country, and Pop.

Regardless of your current level and ability, my lessons will cover and improve your rhythm concepts, soloing techinques, and more. Each lesson is designed to introduce you to an essential technique or concept that you can use to improve your playing ability and to play the songs and style that you always wanted. As your instructor, I will guide you along the way and to make sure you feel comfortable playing the materials on your own.

Whether you’re just advancing from beginner lessons or looking for new insights and challenges, book with me now and start learning to play electric guitar today!

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.

Travel the world through music from the comfort of any seat in your home. I have been doing this for the past twelve years with my guitar. I have been through the rivers and amazons of Brazil, getting to know their rhythms that influenced the catchy Bossa Nova; I have walked the muck and mud of Southern USA, playing the Blues and training my fingerstyle technique to imitate that of my idols, and I have cleaned through the distorted grit of Rock around the world to find my own voice. These are only a few places I have travelled. After my education in Guitar, Production, and Songwriting at Berklee College of Music, I can help you cater to the lesson plan you need to take your skills to the next level, the next venue, and the pieces inside of you waiting to be manifested into notes. When do we start?

About Michael

Hola! Michael here, I'm an American/Mexican raised in Mexico. I moved to the US to pursue music. I went to Berklee College of Music where I studied Music Production, Composition, and Songwriting! I am now living in Nashville jamming with every person I can meet!

Ben
Michael is a careful, patient and fun teacher. He took time to make sure I was learning and applying my new guitar skills. He would not move beyond until I got it. I highly recommend Michael for beginners and intermediate guitar players.
Sarah
Michael is always enthusiastic and excited to work with my daughter on her guitar skills. He makes afternoon activities something my daughter thoroughly looks forward to. Michael is passionate about music and it is contagious to all his students! Ask Michael to teach you or your kids!!!
Gabby
My two boys were shy and inexperienced guitar wanna-be players. Michael opened up his home and his heart and slowly but surely built confidence within them. He has the patience and kindness that were necessary for my boys. However, he knew when and how to push them to become better and more confident with each class. His methods were unique and effective. They looked forward to Wednesday afternoons with Michael. Although we have moved away, my children speak highly of the kind and experienced player that Michael was with them when they needed it most. I recommend Michael!

"Going back over a decade, I bought my first real guitar from Greg, an 80s Avila Rhoads. Over the years that followed, Greg taught me quite a bit in the ways of repair/maintainence as well as theory/sound scultping. The man is truly an inspiration. From the day his old shop opened, to now, Greg has always been a great teacher."
