Private Guitar Teacher

One of my favorite things is playing acoustic guitar while singing. If this is your goal, I think we'd work well together. I also have a few guitar books that I use if you're interested in learning to play lead guitar in a band or orchestra, and learn to read music.

Berklie M.
Amazing vocal coach - really connected with my kids!
Rajeev M.
The best instructor of music I ever had. I have zero musical background. But as an adult, wanted for the first time exposure in music. After about 4 one session guitar lessons, each with a different instructor who all basically told me I was hopeless (didn't return my call/text to schedule a next session), never did I think that I would be 20 lessons and months of guitar and voice sessions in with the same teacher.
Because of Jillian, I can throw down chords on a guitar, and sing along while playing, something unimaginable foe someone as musically challenged and illiterate as myself.
My future in music, as an adult whose professional background is medicine and science, appears unfathomably bright. Because of a teacher who had the patience to believe.
Simon
I was somewhat skeptical about being to learn to play guitar online but I am sure glad I gave it a try because it was amazing. I've been trying to play the guitar for 20 years and I learned more in 45 minutes with Jillian than I have all this time. Thanks!

I was not home but my son said he enjoyed it very much and is looking for the next one.
Michael
My wife Martha was very please with Paul and the lesson plan.
Angie
Paul has been teaching my 10 year-old son for about 8 weeks now and I have to say that I am very happy with his progress. My son opens the piano as soon as he gets home and begins practicing, with no pushing from me. Paul tries to keep the music as relevant as he can, for a beginner like my son, and he is very patient in his listening and teaching.

Jennifer is great with my high-energy seven-year-old. She's very patient and she is able to make him engage. She also takes the skills he's learned in his music class in school, and builds his skills lessons around his abilities. Finally, she gives homework in a notebook that is clear and measurable, so he knows exactly what to do on his own throughout the week.

Frankie helped me with my clarinet tone within the first 15 minutes of the first lesson, and gave me many more helpful playing tips throughout the hour. He was really interested in what my goals were. Looking forward to many more lessons with Frankie.
