I guarantee students will walk away from the first lesson with a handful of new tricks and a new outlook on practicing. I can show you how to extend on techniques you already know, and break your favorite music down into micro lessons that are fun and easy to jump into within hours of practicing, all while developing the confidence to perform live on stage. It doesn't end there! We can even cover pro-audio applications and other music technology. Ever want to learn how to build your own guitar pedal or fix an old amplifier? I can help!

Learn the secrets of the guitar fretboard and explore different ways of moving around it. I can show you the patterns of different genres and help you refine techniques to master any style of music. Learn to properly maintain and upgrade your guitar, as well as expand it through hardware and software!

About Jason
I have 15 years experience teaching, and 19 years experience in music theory. While in high school, I played in Austria, Germany, Van-Couver, Canada, Reno, Nevada, and Carnegie Hall, New York. During that time, I competed in several competitions and won several awards. Since then, I've studied at 5 different colleges learning many skills from music production, to audio engineering.

My focus now is on revolutionizing music technology, and spreading knowledge to as many people as possible. I want to change the way we interact with music, by engineering new devices. I currently work as a pro-audio technician and product developer for a local company. My classes are hosted both at home and at work, so you can have access to everything I do. It's always nice to have a little variety.

Great experience with learning guitar for the first time!

It has been several months that I start learning guitar for the first time and Jason gave me confidence to start playing guitar. He is very professional and focus, he is a patient teacher which is very critical for being teacher for the first time guitar player student.
I am very enthusiasm to learn now because I am learning my favorite musics. I am always telling Jason that what I like to play and he breaks it to step by step learning experience. He is not only a patient teacher he is a talented one to find out how teach a complicated piece of music to an elementary student. I feel a luckies student in my favorite guitar class!

He has taught me a lot. Lessons are not rushed. He allows me to learn based on my own interests, but also teaches a lot of basics of technique and music theory. The location is convenient to downtown Albuquerque and UNM neighborhood.

Jacob was amazing! My son is very apprehensive about people and most of the time refuses to go back after meeting them. He absolutely adored Jacob!! He said he never wants to have a different guitar teacher. Jacob was very patient, explained things in different ways, and kept it simple as my son is only 7 years old. I was impressed and so relieved to have found Jacob.

Expect to have fun! I will teach to every students need and interest. I believe establishing a good foundations with the basic guitar playing skills is important, but also engaging students in the music they like to hear and play.

About Jennifer
Hi, my name is Jennifer. I have been play guitar for over 10 years now, and teaching it for about 2 years. I am currently attending Arizona Christian University, and pursing my B.A in Music. I've played in bands, and been involved in many different types of performances. I start with teaching my students the basic skills needed to play guitar, then I build on what music they like to learn. I will also teaching basic music theory. I like to make lessons fun and interactive, and am open to teaching any genre. Our first lesson will be at a Starbucks near my house, so we can get to know each other in a comfortable public setting. Then we will transfer the lesson to my home studio or your preferred location once we know each other a little better.

I believe that learning music should be as fun and inspiring as it can be to play. We all have a vast wellspring of creative energy within us, and the goal of the relationship between the student and the teacher is to help nurture and develop that latent talent. For this reason, my approach to teaching music is highly individualized. I start out with the premise that the student has unique gifts and my job is to help them discover what those are, and develop and refine them in order to make beautiful and deeply satisfying music, through whatever instrument and in whatever style they are drawn towards.

Depending on one's starting level of experience, some basic exercises will be assigned to develop core skills, with increasing levels of technical challenge and complexity. Elements of music theory will be woven into practical lessons. Students will have the choice to incorporate material from popular and familiar music into their studies, and as they progress they will be encouraged ...

About Sean
I began teaching acoustic guitar and voice lessons in 1984, also offering harmonium and tabla lessons a few years later. Some of my students have approached music mainly for personal enjoyment and deepening their self-identity, while others have used the skills they learned in their careers.

I've found that in order to be a successful teacher, I must be patient and compassionate, and try to always put myself in the shoes of a learner. I feel my greatest teaching strengths come from listening to my students, as well as drawing from my experience as a singer-songwriter and fingerstyle guitarist.

I'm grateful for my exposure to the music of different cultures, especially the fascinating polyrhythms of traditional African drumming and the deeply moving melodies of Indian Classical music. I had the good fortune to study these disciplines int
ensively with Master Teachers during my time at Dartmouth College, at Wesleyan University, and through independent studies in India. My teacher training at Pacific Oaks College further deepened my appreciation of cultural diversity as well as my sensitivity to different learning styles.

This experience has enriched my own compositions, as well as my ability to connect with learners from diverse cultural backgrounds, and to help guide people in developing a personal style free from artificial boundaries of genre.

Currently, I'm working on recording an album of original songs based on the poetry of Rumi, Hafiz and other mystics.

Do you want to learn to play your favorite song? Work on rhythm technique? or gain a better understanding for music or composition? I have 15 years experience playing Acoustic Guitar and would love to share some of my knowledge with you!

About Kat
I'm a singer songwriter and have worked as a full time musician for the last 13 years. I graduated from Auckland University with Bachelor's of Performing Arts Majoring in jazz vocals, and am currently teaching at Musicians Institute in Hollywood. Music brings me such joy I hope to bring that to our classes and help you grow in a fun and encouraging way!

Currently I still primarily work as a full time musician so I will only be teaching part time. I am finishing and working on releasing my fourth studio album and play shows regularly both in and out of town. I was signed to Sony and Avex in Japan from 2007-2010 and still tour Japan once a year and spend much of my time in the studio writing songs for commercials and other artists.

I usually teach my clients at their home or online through skype but depending on the time can also make the
home studio available. I work with singers, guitarists, and songwriters in a wide age range, assorted skill levels with a variety of musical goals.

I can teach you how to sing with better technique, how to play acoustic guitar and the Ukulele and how to write songs and performance technique in the studio and on stage as a vocalist. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!
