I didn’t know anything about music, other than I like listening to it. The instructor is very attentive to what I needed to accomplish. We decided I needed a different task to master first, and the whole lesson got easier. Looking forward to the next lesson!

Charles is the perfect teacher to learn guitar , very understanding and down to earth makes you feel comfortable in learning the guitar
annabelle J.
Charles has been my teacher for a few weeks now and I am so happy I found him on takelessons. He is an amazing guitar player but also an amazing teacher, he always comes prepared and the class is well organized. He is also open to hearing suggestions to learn your favorite songs. He is very encouraging which gives the motivation to keep going which is so important for a beginner. I am already seeing great progresses after only a few weeks, and I can't wait for more lessons this year. Highly recommend him if you are looking to get started with the guitar! You will really enjoy learning with him, he is also a very cool and fun guy so you can learn in a nice environment, whether it is in his studio at his place, at your place or online.
Gaurav Jung Pande
I learnt music theory and improvisation with Charles for 4 months in New York.

Charles is highly approachable and extremely knowledgeable. He walks the perfect line between making his students feel comfortable whilst also pushing them to become better in every single session.

I got a solid grasp of the basics of music theory and was able to fully improvise in different scales at the end of the course. The growth I had was tremendous - all thanks to Charles' guidance.

Charles will take the time to fully understand the needs, goals and struggles of his students. He will be there for them inside and outside of class time because he genuinely cares about music and his students becoming better.

Mr. Aragon has continually shown me his love for music through his teaching. As an instructor, he paid close attention to my technique when playing the piano, guitar, or flute, and helped me improve it. Through the years, he has strongly influenced my love for music, and I continue to use what he has taught me when playing instruments and music outside the classroom. Overall, Mr. Aragon is a great, professional instructor who is passionate about teaching students music through music theory and his love of rock n roll and classical music.

I went for my first lesson this morning & John was excellent! Very professional & informative. I look forward to more upcoming lessons in the following weeks!!!

Mr.Aragon was my son’s grade school music teacher for 8 yrs. He is very patient and encouraging, and my son really enjoyed it when Mr.Aragon would teach the class music from the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s. Now my son appreciates Motown, Michael Jackson, the Beatles, and Billy Joel as much as he does current alternative music, and he is 13!

I've been performing music for over 15 years. I've been teaching guitar for the past three years. I like keeping guitar fun! I will work with each student's individual needs and goals. I like all kinds of music and styles so don't feel embarrassed if you wanna learn a Taylor Swift song or Old Town Road. I like pursuing what the student is interested in while still teaching essential skills like strumming, note reading, chords, picking, etc. Reach out and lets chat about guitar!

About Luke

I grew up in Beaufort, South Carolina, picking up the guitar and bass at age 13. Before that, I had a strong interest in all types of music. After learning the basics on guitar, I formed a band in my tiny hometown, constantly learning and writing songs. For college, I went to Western Washington

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.

"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!"
