Private Classical Guitar Teacher

For classical guitar the first thing I do when I meet a student is to interview the student and find out why they want to learn how to play the guitar and what are some of their goals. Then I find out what style of music they would like to learn. I have the student come up with ten songs they would like to learn. I take this information and structure future guitar lessons around the essential elements of these songs. I design each lesson to teach the specific skills required to learn those songs. I create an organized binder guitar workbook and having a teaching degree I create all of the lessons to meet each students individual needs that include lessons on theory, technique, chords, rhythm, scales, arpeggios, songs, song form, and exercises etc. I use a color coded method to teach scales, chords and theory that I created that help students not only understand scales but also they are able to see visually where chords come from. I break down each song into easy digestible parts so ...

I only have high accolades for David. I've learned more from David in the mere 5 lessons then I learned in a years worth of lessons in the past. His method of teaching is perfect with the right amount of homework. He customizes the lesson for the type of music I ultimately want to play with a good balance of theory and practical lessons to get me there. Bravo!!!

My classical guitar lessons focus on technique, repertoire, theory, and other concepts. This is accomplished through studies created by myself and through several books by master guitarists. I make sure students are able to isolate areas of focus and integrate them together to become well-rounded musicians.

My son has been taking lessons with Mr. Brown for 2 years. We started off in-home but switched to online at the onset of the pandemic. Mr. Brown is always friendly fun and professional. My son started bass in school but did not enjoy the classroom lessons. My son has some learning and focus challenges. Mr. Brown is very patient, encouraging, and kind with him and he works hard to keep my son engaged. My son made significant strides. I highly recommend Mr. Brown as an instructor.

My 14 year old son has been taking lessons with Daniel for about a year now and is very pleased with Daniel's teaching style and skill. Daniel is well prepared for each lesson and challenges my son with new techniques and material. We plan to stay with him!

Daniel is an excellent upright bass instructor. He has been working with my son for almost a year now. My son really enjoys the lessons and believes that he is improving steadily under Daniel's instruction. I am impressed by Daniel's thorough preparation and follow up.

To me, learning any instrument is about balancing the exercises with the fun material that makes you want to keep playing. I am a technique-focused teacher insofar as making sure any student of mine is avoiding bad and sometimes unhealthy habits in their playing. I do, however, try to find fun ways to work on technique, with the end goal being playing repertoire that is fun for the student. I believe technical exercises have their place in learning any instrument, but that it's important to spend the majority of your practice time on material which is ultimately enjoyable to play.

I do have certain sets of books I like to follow depending on the student's interests and age, but I am always happy to tweak the lesson plan to fit the student's needs. I also tend to supplement whichever books I'm using with material of my own, to make sure we're also covering important topics such as music theory and maybe a bit of relevant music history in the process.

I was self taught when I started taking lessons, Josh helped me fix some bad habits that helped me push my playing to the next level!

I grew up on bossa, and wanted to learn how to play it. I had played guitar for years but mostly rock and folk. Josh was able to take what I knew and teach me how to play bossa music.

I never thought I'd study classical guitar, but Mr Josh showed me how important it is to have a good foundation to build from. Highly recommended!

First and formost I love creating music. Whether that is playing, writing, or teaching. Making music is basically all I have done for the past 20+yrs. I play and perform on multiple instruments so that gives me an insight into how different instruments interact with one another either in a band situation or songwriting/arranging. My main goal as a teacher is to get you playing and making music as soon as possible. I want you to enjoy learning music by playing your favorite songs and really be excited about the whole process. Through learning songs the lessons and supplemental materials can become very personalized to the students' interests.
I throughly love sharing my knowledge and experience with my students. Knowing the joy music brings to my life fills me with the passion to pass it along to my students. Every student gets their own Google Classroom where the lesson materials and communications can happen quickly and directly. I record each lesson and provide the replay of ...

"I moved to San Diego for a few months for work and decided while I was there I would start to learn classical guitar. By luck or aligning of the stars or whatever you want to call it I found Francesca as an instructor. When it came time for my first lesson, and first time playing a guitar, I was a bit nervous and didn't know what to expect. With that first hug and incredible positive attitude all worries shed away. I walked away from every lesson feeling like I had really learned something because you can tell she has a genuine desire to teach people. I'm really going to miss our weekly lessons but I walked away with a lifelong desire to play the guitar and a lifelong friend."

Should Classical Violinists Learn to Improvise?

A few weeks ago the Washington Post published an article about musician Hannah Hanh and her struggles with improvisation.  As a classical violinist, she hadn't had much training for spontaneity, naturally. The article points out improvisation as a technique that has fallen by the wayside for many performers these days. And it asks an interesting question: Can (and should) classical musicians learn to improvise? We've talked a lot about improvising on the guitar and drums, but where do classi …

Therefore, I consider it important for you, as a classical guitar player or student, to focus on these following exercises. They're based on scales and arpeggios for the purpose of developing …
