I want to have you walking out of the lesson happy, and excited to go home and practice some new material. With me you'll learn about guitar, but you'll also learn about music and how playing can help you in life (perseverance, basic math foundations, etc.)

All ages welcome. Guitar Lessons customized for your individual needs/goals. Want to learn that favorite song of yours? Then look no further as your teacher I will teach you and in no time you’ll be playing guitar (or shredding for those heavy metal players)
I believe there is truly No Finish Line. I’ve been playing guitar, teaching in classrooms, privately and now online and I’m still learning. There will always be something new to add to your playing repertoire. Luckily my experienced background with multiple instruments other than guitar include: piano, ukulele, and drums has made my pallet of knowledge that much greater. I love to focus on customizing lessons to each student’s individual goals while focusing on developing proper technique, musicality, and performance skills for when you become great at the simple things, you will have a much easier time with the difficult.

I've been teaching Guitar for 10 years and my students have gone on to play in different venues internationally. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to start playing songs and as time goes on you'll be able to not only play with proficiency but to compose music for Guitars. I specialize in Classical (Spanish) Guitar, Pop and Country, I typically use our own method books based on some of the teachings from the greatest composers that have played the instrument. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Gregg Anderson
Amazing guy. Really knows his stuff. You're not a good fit if you're not coachable as he'll show you the right way to play guitar (picking technique, how to hold the guitar, etc.). It feels super uncomfortable at first, but I can already tell that my guitar skills are going to blow past what I could do before these lessons. He also knows the instrument very well and can make recommendations on setup and other awesome gear.
Simon Else
Engaging and technical tutor. Pays a lot of attention to developing a good technique and developing good style. Involving, fun, humorous and fantastic for long-term progress.
