Years ago I took Guitar Lessons at a local music store ( a very prominent one) as a raw beginner and quickly became frustrated with my lack of progress. Although my teacher was a great player and "very hot" to look at I soon began to feel like I was merely his "practice dummy."... I'd play the chords he showed me, endlessly,... while he seemed to be just practicing his solo playing. ... I then tried On-Line Lessons from various sites which were actually even less helpful and soon just lost interest completely.
A friend of mine said she had taken lessons from a Don DeBold for about 5 years before going off to college and highly recommended him.
I've now been taking lessons from Don for almost 2 years and having a blast ! I've learned how to play along with most of my favorite songs (mainly Blues and Rock) and now I'm learning to play Solo Guitar that needs no accompaniment !
Unlike my first teacher, during many lessons Don barely plays or even has his Strat on his lap because he's busy concentrating on what I'm doing !
He's a stickler yet lots of fun at the same time> I super recommend him as a Guitar and Music Teacher !!! Aneiah J.

Private Classical Guitar Teacher

As a professional concert artist, I have traveled the world performing and working with great musicians. My focus has not only been on the art and craft of performance, but on pedagogy and the process of learning - which is an art in and of itself! My lessons are compactly designed and and focus on the individual capacities of the student, not only on guitar playing, but also the skills necessary to be a complete musician: rhythm, harmony, theory, technique, interpretational prowess, a well-chosen, diverse repertoire, improvisation...

Having initially studied classical guitar, I have gone on to learn many different styles on many different instruments including multiple ethnic instruments and musical systems as well as historical instruments and performance practice (lute, vihuela, baroque guitar, etc).

I also compose and am delighted when students wish to learn theory and composition techniques.

About Polivios

As a professional concert artist and composer, I have been incredibly fortunate to travel the world, giving concerts in a wide variety of musical styles alongside some truly incredible artists. I am deeply passionate about teaching and the learning process. I truly feel that making art, and especi

I took lessons with Jeff a few years back, and if it wasn’t for his teaching, I would not be where I am now. He helped me smooth out my technique, taught me jazz essentials, and even dabbled in a little classical guitar as well (and that is what I do now!) His lessons were inspiring to say the least!

Online Classical Guitar Teacher

A multi-instrumentalist, Cole teaches piano, guitar, ukulele, and bass. In addition to teaching, he also is a singer/songwriter, producer, and recording studio owner. He is currently working on his degree in Music at the University of Southern California . Although Cole didn’t grow up in a musical family, he discovered The Beatles when he was 6 years old. From that moment on, he was hooked. He knew that he wanted to be a guitarist and songwriter!
Cole began taking private guitar lessons in Thousand Oaks at age 7. He studied with the same teacher for 11 years! In that time, he also learned to play the piano, ukulele, bass, drums, percussion, and studied singing. An avid and eager student, Cole also began studying random instruments here and there. He even learned to play the harmonica! Because he knew he wanted to be a professional musician, he started recording his own albums at the age of 9.
Cole started teaching guitar lessons in the 8th grade as part of a “start your own business”

About Cole

I took lessons from Cole last year in hopes to get a better feel for understanding the major/minor scales for lead guitar. I've been playing rhythm guitar for decades and wanted to work my way into playing lead guitar. He asked a ton of questions on what I wanted to accomplish and dialed in his lessons to address these needs. Great teacher and was always on time! I can truly say I am a better guitar player due to my time spent with Cole.

He is dedicated, patient, attentive to detail, and kind to his students. He knows how to read students and structure instruction on an individual basis and day to day. He is such an inspiration and a fantastic teacher! I highly recommend taking lessons with William. He is phenomenal!"

"Ahmad is a gifted and patient instructor. I was looking for a jump-start towards learning to play guitar after years of false starts on my own and Ahmad was the perfect choice for me. It's rare for someone with his playing ability to also be able to impart knowledge to those with far less innate ability but Ahmad is able to relate to his students at their level (whatever it may be). Ahmad has a way of making his students understand that bad habits can be overcome over time and he has distilled his approach so that anyone he works with can improve. I'd recommend him for anyone looking to improve regardless of their skill level."

I admit that the demands of everyday life can get in the way of my goal of being a musician, but Keith has brought me so very far.His empathy and professionalism has helped me to begin to overcome performance anxiety. His support has been priceless!!"

"I moved to San Diego for a few months for work and decided while I was there I would start to learn classical guitar. By luck or aligning of the stars or whatever you want to call it I found Francesca as an instructor. When it came time for my first lesson, and first time playing a guitar, I was a bit nervous and didn't know what to expect. With that first hug and incredible positive attitude all worries shed away. I walked away from every lesson feeling like I had really learned something because you can tell she has a genuine desire to teach people. I'm really going to miss our weekly lessons but I walked away with a lifelong desire to play the guitar and a lifelong friend."
