Ivan is an exceptional teacher. His instruction goes far beyond the technical foundation required for all musicians - he integrates teachings that help one tap into the emotional connection to music and how that impacts playing. His disciplined approach helped me break out of some habits that developed as a self-taught guitarist and his patience was an asset for someone like me, who is very impatient.

From Ivan you will establish a foundation that is build on theory and technique. With Ivan there are no shortcuts - practice, be diligent and you'll achieve consistency. He works you hard but it's worth the effort because with these pillars, even I, an uneducated musician, have seen growth in my skills.

Geography is no issue so no matter where in the world you live, I highly recommend Ivan as a teacher and mentor.

Brian is a wonderful teacher, our son has been learning and enjoying the classes. Would definitely recommend Brian.
Jina
I learned a lot in my first lesson with Brian. He clearly knows the guitar inside and out. The pace was on the faster side, but he answered all my questions about technique and theory. Beyond what I wanted to focus on (technique), he's laying a solid foundation for theory so that I don't have go rely on the capo or online tabs as much. He also gave me useful scale exercises to build up finger independence and articulation. So far so good.

Brian is very friendly and ofcourse a professional. Today was our first lesson, and it was a great experience, I look forward to continue learning from him. Thank you Brian! 😊

I've been working with Brian for four months now and have made excellent progress on guitar. Brian quickly adjusted to my experience level and has done an outstanding job of removing long-standing bad habits and reinforcing the good ones. He has a fresh approach which ensures students don't get bored and, best of all, instills confidence and a good stage presence. I'm on my way to being a better guitar player but more importantly, a better musician. I recommend Brian without reservation.

Online Guitar Teacher

I can show you how to improvise any scale or chord on the guitar without reading a single piece of music notation, tab, or chord chart, so that you can play the music that lives within you.

Maybe you want to become a songwriter, or a composer. Or maybe you just want to jam with friends or play your favorite songs by ear. Either way, the process is the same.

I can teach you to:
✅ Write your own songs and compose your own music
✅ Jam with friends
✅ Play any chord and scale on the fly even if you’ve never played it before
✅ Learn music theory by ear
✅ Recognize chords as clearly as you’d recognize colors
✅ Play freely and without restrictions in any musical key

Without:
❌ Studying “licks”
❌ Obsessing over complicated music theory
❌ Getting stuck on restrictive chord charts and scale patterns
❌ Doing exercises that don’t have musical context or application
❌ Learning other people’s music (unless you want to)
❌ Reading music notation, tabs, and chord charts

About Morgan

I am a songwriter and composer with an education in classical and jazz guitar, I started playing 13 years ago, and have definitely had hit my share of plateaus along the way which led me to enrolling in music school. In school, I learned a lot about the intellectual side of music, but I fel

"I took my two boys one is 8 yrs. old and the other one is 14 yrs. old and both they never had any experience on playing the guitar and when they started going with Aaron, my kids where so happy to have a nice and knowledgeable instructor, they do know now how to read notes and they starting to play the guitar. Aaron has a lot of patience when it comes to kids and teenagers that starting to want to play the guitar, Aaron will explain and teach in a manner that kids want to go back the very next day and also teaches on a way it's fun for them and not boring. I will give Aaron 5 stars because he is a great instructor."

"Great Teacher

Great teacher takes time to cover theory of music, and does hour lessons unlike most teachers in town who do 30min lessons. Have taken lessons from other teachers in the past, and all they do is teach you songs without explaining the reasoning behind it. Have learned more in the last few months then I’ve learn in years with other teachers."

Exercises for Practicing Guitar Chords

There are several ways to master the technique of changing chords, so let’s look at a couple of exercises using basic guitar chords. The basic guitar chords are C, D, Dm, E, Em, F, G, A, and Am. Some instructors add C7, D7, E7, G7, A7 and B7. The F chord is always the most difficult for the beginning guitar player because you hold two strings down with one finger. Ideally, you want your basic guitar chords to sound clean and crisp – no muffled strings. Keep practicing the individual chord …
