David, 8yo, just started his guitar lessons with Adam and he is extremely happy with what he already knows after only one lesson! We cannot wait for the next one!

Adam is awesome! Thank you so much!
Herbert
Adam is a teacher par excellence. I am self taught from a well known book. I was doing well I thought until I got stuck. Adam gently showed me where I erred and made great suggestions for me to move on correctly. I never felt rushed or “ put down.” Adam was patient, open for questions, encouraging, comforting. I know I need much help to correct and advance in guitar from matters such as tuning, restringing, reading, and other things too many to write about. I look forward to my next lesson with enthusiasm.

I have taught all levels, using the methods of Giuliani, Carcassi and Sor. Also I encourage my students to develop a basic repertoire for performance, a knowledge of theory and fundamentals.

Juan is wonderful and very knowledgeable in music. He is very patient and makes you feel comfortable. I leave a lesson feeling like I am accomplished and relaxed. It nice to see progress in such a little time. I go home with enthusiasm to learn more and want practice to do so.
Chrystine R.
With a patient and intuitive approach, Juan tailors each lesson to fit not only the student’s skill level, but also desire for depth of understanding. When I first began taking lessons, I was only able to plunk a few chords and play along with a few basic songs. However, over the course of a year and a half with Juan, I gained a foundational knowledge of the classical guitar, as well as the confidence to site read and play a range of other styles of guitar music. He seamlessly integrated music theory concepts into song studies, helping me learn major/minor scales and chord shapes, and then apply this knowledge to better understand song structures and composition. It has been such a great experience learning from Juan, especially because he is both an exemplary teacher and guitar player!
Dionne T.
Juan is awesome. He makes learning guitar easy and never complicates it .. and makes it fun. He's a great teacher.

Online Classical Guitar Teacher

Rapid results. . .

With both Bachelor's and Master's Degrees in music, and decades-long expertise in both classical, folk & many styles inbetween, I can equip the student with excellent technique and help them avoid the many pitfalls of unskilled, self-taught guitar-performers, who, alas, comprise most of the present on- and off-line teachers. The student will learn how to hold, position and play the guitar without needless stress, hunched spine, or dysfunctional habits which can slow down a student's progress by light years.

The student's hearing is trained intensively and with it the ability to transpose music from recordings onto the fretboard, even without the aid of tablature or notated sheet music.

Finally, the student will learn, quickly and virtually painlessly, how to read and write music notation, as well as how to begin composing original pieces and songs.

One such semester will be worth more than a year of bad teaching, or of misguided self-efforts - guaranteed!

About Joseph

I promise: 1. To focus on music you love. . . 2. To teach you the technical skills to play that music 3. To leave you, after each lesson, a notch above where you were before it. 4. To be a musical friend and mentor 5. To be open to your feedback and feelings.

"I have been taking classical guitar lessons with Remi for about a month now and so far my experience has been very positive. Remi is an excellent musician with robust knowledge of theory and technique. His experience and background is impressive as well.

As a teacher, Remi is very patient and works with you to help you understand music theory and improve your techniques. He is focused on making his students well-rounded musicians and has a long-term view in mind with his teaching style, which I appreciate. His sessions are very casual and have a relaxed feeling.

Overall, I rate him very highly as an instructor and I would certainly recommend him to anyone looking to learn an instrument in which he has proficiency."

"Learn from a professional guitarist!

There's an advantage learning from someone who is actually paid to perform music. Get the perspective and tricks of the trade to sound good quickly. He plays the range from rock to standard classical fare like Tarrega and Bach.

He teaches using tab and regular notation which really gets you up to speed quickly on any piece. My previous guitar teachers didn't use tab so learning anything is a slog. I've already learned Lagrima, Bach's Air, Bach's Bourree, Romanza, Recuerdos de la Alhambra and Tears in Heaven in a relatively short time.

Jesse observes your fingerings very well and makes sure you use the most efficient methods.

Flexibility of scheduling was extremely important to me since I cannot be on a regular weekly schedule. Take Lessons and Jesse's flexible schedule makes that very easy."

A Little Bit of Country: Easy Classic Country Songs for Guitarists

If you're a fan of classic country music, you've come to the right place. Here, guitar teacher Willy M. shares his favorite classic country songs for guitarists... I grew up in the late '70s and early '80s in the rural Midwest when "Hee-Haw," a country television program, was something that everyone knew about. It was the Grand Ole Opry’s rendition of a high-theatrical experience, and a showcase for classic country artists to play their tunes. Willie Nelson, one of my favorite songwr …
