Private Guitar Teacher

I have a degree in music, and have taught at three summer camps three music stores and two universities.

I have been teaching guitar since 1990. I teach ages 9 and up, and I aim to tailor lessons to work with your natural strengths and learning style.

I offer note-reading but it is optional. We can study guitar using tablature and chord diagrams. The important thing is to make great music, enjoy the process, play songs you like, make steady progress and become independent.

If I teach you well, eventually you won't need me very much- you'll be able to figure things out on your own,

I started playing guitar when I was 4. I've played classical, rock, a bit of jazz, folk, a little bluegrass, and fingerstyle. I love the guitar and I love teaching!

About Carla

Music is my LIFE! After 30 years of teaching at music camps, music stores, 3 colleges and my home, I completely understand that the lessons are all about YOU, the student: what you want to learn, taught to you in a way that works for your brain and personality. And if you don't know exactly wh

Carla is amazing. My daughter loves working with her and she made things easy to understand. I can’t recommend her enough.
Ted
Carla's teaching technique was perfect for me. I have played the guitar for longer than I care to admit and even I was tired of hearing my same old stuff. She incrementally moved me forward line by line, measure by measure to where I now have several fingerpicking style numbers in my portfolio.

Playing for my own enjoyment is now enjoyable once again.

My lessons were online and very effective - when I got stuck, Carla would send me a sample audio clip of her playing the difficult part which was a godsend for me in how I learn new musical things.

I highly recommend Carla and her Carlalology method of guitar teaching. You won't be disappointed.

Private Guitar Teacher

I am an experienced session player of about 5 years, specializing in classic rock, jazz, blues and pop! I have been playing guitar for 11 years and was self taught up until I studied music theory and performance at Los Angeles Pierce College. There I also played in the jazz ensemble and was a part of the choir where I played in multiple student concerts on and off campus, including at USC. Since then I have played lead and rhythm guitar in many bands around LA and released one album and two singles. My favorite artists include Phoebe Bridgers, St. Vincent, Jackson Browne, Tom Petty and Talking Heads. I like working with people who are eager to learn and willing to ask questions to make sure they get what they want out of my lessons.

About Jacob

I’ve been playing guitar for about 11 years. I started out self-taught and decided to take it a step further in college with theory classes and playing in the jazz band. I grew up on classic rock, (Tom Petty, Fleetwood Mac, The Eagles, Jackson Browne) and nowadays I like to keep up with indie rock

Music is an essential element of a child's education, whether your training to perform at a campfire or Carnegie Hall. My approach is student-driven and collaborative. I help guide my students through songs of their choice, incorporating skill-level appropriate theory and ear training techniques. This allows kids to develop an understanding of the music they're most passionate for, helping their interest and enthusiasm to grow.

"Great teacher, large knowledge of many genres.

Paul is an overall great teacher. Before I took lessons with him, I knew next to nothing about playing guitar. I might have known the "box" minor pentatonic scale and possibly aeolian as a mode. Then I started taking lessons with him for Metal, my personal genre of choice and I started learning at a far more accelerated rate. Fast forward to about 9 months ago (January 2012) and I'd also grown an interest in Jazz. Fortunately Paul is an excellent teacher in both genres and helped my tastes (in both) genres develop and now he teaches me in Jazz. I even went to the Berklee school of music five week summer program (I'm to young to apply to the school's full time program) and thrived there. I recently got my report card for the class and his extensive teaching of how to play guitar from playing jazz chords to complex music theory (we're learning about chromatic harmony with the use of secondary dominants and tritone substitutions) helped me get only A's and B's. The areas where I got A's include classes such as high level theory, ensemble classes, ear training and genre specific guitar labs. I only got B's in my reading and chord labs, my reading which has always been poor, and my chord lab which involved nothing but right handed chord charts (I'm a left handed guitarist). I dont think I would have been able to get these grades if i had a different teacher or were self-taught, even with my music classes I'd taken at school I was always ahead of the rest of the class thanks to my extensive knowledge of theory with Paul. Paul comes to my house, which makes getting ready for my lesson as easy as turning my amp onto standby for the Tubes to warm up."
