Music has been my passion since I was 10 years old. I didn't have any real instruments at first, so, I built my own out of coffee cans, ice cream containers and of course: a rubber band shoebox guitar! It might sound funny, but, I believe these early days of trying to create music using my "homemade symphony," forced me to really get to the core of sound and expression without the pre-set curriculum of traditional music study. Early on, I learned a few fundamental concepts of music theory that would forever change how I learned, as well as how I taught music to others. I believe these concepts set a foundation that allowed me to understand music and grow much faster - including learning multiple instruments.

And yes, I eventually acquired a real guitar and went on to study music and computers at the University of California and I currently compose music for TV and film in my own studio. I have taught guitar, bass, piano, drums, theory, composition and recording production to ...

Guitar is my main instrument which I have been teaching for 13 years. I like to start beginner students with a basic knowledge of chords and rhythm to get them playing as soon as possible, and then supplement that knowledge with some music theory.

About Aaron

Hello fellow and future musicians, and thanks for checking out my profile! To tell you a little about myself, I was exposed to music at a very young age since my dad was a musician. I first picked up the drums at the age of 5, and took piano lessons for a year when I was 6. I later played the sa

Andrew has taught me so much! I am really enjoying taking lessons from him. He is a great teacher and really knows a lot about guitar. He has made learning guitar a great experience for me!
Mark
I have been taking guitar lessons with Andrew, and he has been an excellent tutor. Though I started without too much experience in music or in guitar playing, Andrew demonstrated a lot of patience to ensure that I master the basics. His patience is definitely a rare trait for a musician who is as accomplished as Andrew, and in my opinion demonstrates not only his commit to music, but also his passion for sharing the joy of guitar to everyone. As a newcomer to learning this amazing instrument, I could not ask for a better instructor.

"Bettre than I expected

Richard knows guitars inside and out and he teaches you effectively and efficiently. He focuses on your weak areas and gives you encouragement during those tough moments when you are struggling a little. He tells you his early years at learning guitar and tells you his mistakes and makes sure you don't do the early novice mistakes. He can accelerate your learning curve. You as a student, have to put the time an effort....but he focuses your lessons to get the most out of it. Think of Richard as your personal trainer for your guitar, slick guitar rifts in 90 days."

"I have had 3 lessons with Alexander so far and I have 2 more left. I'm still up in the air whether I will continue lessons with him or not. Here's why;

Sustains: Professional and Knowledgeable; Alexander definitely knows what he's talking about. I've noticed major improvements since I've started working with him. Keep in mind, I practice a lot on my own, but Alexander provides you with the tools and materials you need to continue growing in the fastest way possible. He doesn't have a teaching method set in stone. He tailors each lesson to benefit the student based on where he or she is skill-wise. Alexander observes you closely while you play and offers you advice and solutions to specific problems when he notices you struggling. Some of my issues are solved immediately.

Improves: Alexander lacks, in my opinion, a very important virtue that I believe all teachers should possess. A passion to teach you. You forget this when you are sitting with him in his studio, but the realization comes back and hits you when the clock hits 30 minutes exact and he says, "And that's all we have time for." Let me be very clear, -I'm receiving what a paid for-, so I'm not upset. I just think a teacher should invest in a student's growth and their commitment to the student shouldn't be based solely on what they make out of it financially. Unfortunately, I know that if the money ever stops coming in our lessons will end immediately. Once again, I can't complain or be upset. I paid for a service and I'm receiving it.

This was made clear to me again last week when I had to cancel a lesson.
The teachers need a 24-hour notice for cancellations which is fair and understandable. However, I didn't know this at the time so when I cancelled he only had about 4 hours notice. His initial response was that, "He understood but TakeLessons will charge you for the lesson anyway. Let me know if you still want to meet." After texting him back explaining my problem with that, he went ahead and ensured I wasn't charged. Let me repeat, -In the end he did help me-, but if I hadn't said anything he would've let TakeLessons charge me.

Conclusion: 4 stars. I paid for a service and I'm receiving it well. Alexander's talent for teaching really shines when you listen to his advice, act on it, and notice yourself improving. Understand that improvement comes from practicing on your own time, but Alexander will provide you with everything you need to expedite your growth.
Remember, however, this is a business. If they stop profiting from you don't expect any leniency."

"Great attitude every time you came in to practice. You can tell he has a passion for what he does and that he wants you to learn and understand guitar. It was an incredible experience getting to work with him. I still have every song and music theory paper he gave me, and I still study them. All in all he is a great teacher."

"If I could give 4.5 stars I would, the only reason it's not 5 stars is because I think nobody is perfect, but David is very close to it. I really liked how patient David was with Eli and his deep knowledge of music was very impressive. David is able to prevent things in a number of different ways and he makes sure that you understand that material very well."

"Best Guitar Coach Ever!

I've been taking lessons from Anthony G. for over a month now, and his ability to make the lessons easy to understand has helped my guitar playing tenfold. His method of teaching makes it easy to understand guitar fundamentals and theory. He's a great guitar player and by far the best teacher I've ever had. Anthony is not just a teacher, but a guitar coach and mentor! I would recommend him to anyone that's interested in taking lessons."

"Andrew is a great teacher. He is a very nice guy who puts you at ease from the beginning. His love and appreciation of music is infectious. After each lesson with Andrew I feel excited about becoming a musician. He explains things in a way that makes sense to a beginner and it’s obvious that he wants to help his students become good musicians. I’m glad that I found a guitar teacher like Andrew. I look forward, with Andrew’s help, to making my life-long dream of being a guitar player finally come true."
