Private Electric Guitar Teacher

My goal as a teacher is to give you the facility to express yourself through music. The key parts to developing this facility are:

1. theory -- if you know your theory, you know the best way to express your idea without having to think about it
2. technique -- the last thing you want is for your technique to hinder your ability to express your idea. Having good technique lets your ideas flow naturally

When you take lessons with me, you get out of it what you put in. Your job as student is to be honest with what you expect to achieve and my job as teacher is to give you the tools to achieve it

About David

I have been playing music almost my entire life. I first started on trombone in 4th grade then switched to guitar in 6th. I picked up the electric bass in my later teenage years and learned the upright bass (both jazz and classical) in college. My students get the benefit of my education, as wel

David has been immensely helpful in getting me on my way to understanding timing and getting me through some of my mental blocks. In 2 months with David, I feel like I understand more about music than I ever have. His explanations are clear and that makes all the difference in the world for me. He has an abundance of patience, knowledge, and a passion for music. I'm nowhere near where I want to be, but I'm closer than I've ever been...All thanks to David.
Lucas
David was very patient and thorough with the introductory lesson. He corrected some basic habits my son had and had him sounding better in 10 minutes.

He also had practical recommendations for daily practice.

I highly recommend David.
Chris H.
David went over basic music theory and rhythm with me, and corrected some technique issues. He explained things clearly and when we put some of it into practice in the final minutes I saw instant results. Absolutely excited to do my homework and for my next lesson.

Private Electric Guitar Teacher

Electric Guitar has always been my favorite instrument, since the first time I picked it up almost 20 years ago. Although I’m deeply in love with the style of Rock and Metal, I also learned and specialized in the style of Blues, Country, and Pop.

Regardless of your current level and ability, my lessons will cover and improve your rhythm concepts, soloing techinques, and more. Each lesson is designed to introduce you to an essential technique or concept that you can use to improve your playing ability and to play the songs and style that you always wanted. As your instructor, I will guide you along the way and to make sure you feel comfortable playing the materials on your own.

Whether you’re just advancing from beginner lessons or looking for new insights and challenges, book with me now and start learning to play electric guitar today!

Sylivan is a great teacher with great personality. He was there to help me not only when I struggled with music and guitar but also when I felt down. I asked him why he cared so much and he told me a healthy mind is most important which helps in music learning =) Sylivan is also patient; even sometimes I can't stand myself but he was there to help me to learn lol He has passion in teaching and you can see it once he's in action.

Picture this....you get home after a long day of work or school, you feel a little stressed out by the world, wishing you had more time to get the endless list of things done and more energy to do them.....

Instead of turning on Netflix and zoning out, you pick up your guitar and play your favorite song.

Feels pretty great right?!

Learning to play an instrument is one of life's most rewarding endeavors, that just keeps getting better the longer you pursue it.

With playing an instrument, you will have something you love to do and look forward to doing every single day, enriching your life and those around you.

If you'd like to chat or have any questions just shoot me a message and I'll get back asap :)

Thanks for checking out my profile and I hope to hear from you soon.

There are a multitude of different lessons and avenues that you can take through this program, all geared towards your personal goals and making you a better guitarist no matter the final goal. Never have I once been disappointed with my lessons.
Connee
Chris is a very talented musician and really understands young students. Our student is 12 years old which is young for learning guitar. Chris shows great patience and skill teaching him. He knows how to keep his interest and keep him on task for practice as well as one on one lessons. We are very pleased with Chris for guitar instruction.
Alex
This man not only taught me how to shred on a guitar in a way catered for me (he caters his lessons to the interests of the student while still retaining a healthy balance of general theory and skills every guitar player should know), but he helped me with my songwriting, provided me useful skills that transferred to other elements of my life, and constantly provided support and encouragement even when picking up the guitar was the last thing on my mind. I would recommend him to anyone

"Our teenage son connected with Jered right away, and it was an excellent first lesson. Aaparrently our son learned so much more in one private face to face lesson than online classes he's been doing for a month. ( This isn't online private/group lesson, it's a class with video lectures and exercises). Would definitely continue."

"I first got to talking with Zach back in 2015, I had been looking for an accomplished musician to play at my husbands birthday party. He did not disappoint! ! Everyone was very impressed with his music style and professionalism. Through that connection we got to talking, and I also learned that he teaches music all over the south bay! Years later now in 2019, My 16 year old son had been wanting to take electric guitar lessons, but we had not been finding a good fit with a teacher. My son is very smart and artistic, however struggles with a mild learning disability. I reached out to Zach, and we discussed giving it a try. Zach is very patient and breaks up the music information in a way that is very understandable for my son, and is hands on pointing out the best techniques to help him excel, and stay engaged. My son has been taking lessons from Zach once a week for a few months, and I cannot believe my sons progress!! He actually enjoys learning the guitar and is feeling very inspired to continue to learn more because he is learning to play all the songs he is interested in. MY son is now teaching me how to play some new songs..I am thankful to Zach for empowering my son to unlock his musical ability and keeping him interested in learning in a stress free environment. Zach although very professional, he is a relaxed teacher, and very relatable to young people, teens and young adults which I think makes lessons fun! I am very picky about who teaches my kids, and Zach I would say checks off all the right boxes!!"

"Just had my 4th lesson with Halec and they have all been awesome! My main goal in learning guitar is to create my own supporting instrumentation to my hip hop beats. Halec was completely understanding of my intentions with learning guitar and we have been working on ways that I can incorporate my own playing into my songs. My soloing has already improved dramatically!

10/10 would recommend!"

"As someone who has played guitar for over ten years and taken lessons from several other accomplished guitar teachers, I can safely say that Ahmad is the best guitar teacher I've taken lessons from.

He determines what you hope to take away from the lessons and what your goals are as a player and is very dedicated to finding a way to get you there that is both educational and enjoyable. His instruction is very flexible and has no hesitation dropping one exercise and focusing more on styles of learning that are suitable for you as a student.

For someone who has been playing for a long time he was quickly able to open up a whole new set of possibilities and refresh the instrument for me as well as better my understanding of music harmony and melody in general."
