Private Classical Guitar Teacher

Classical music is a major passion of mine. I personally love playing Baroque music, but my studies have lead me to cover music from renaissance, classical, romantic and modern eras. My favorite classical composers to play on guitar are J.S. Bach, Leo Brouwer, Antonio Lauro and Mauro Giuliani. Each lesson we will work on developing our right and left hand technique so as to have better control over dynamics (volume), articulation (staccato, legato, and specific technical demands for hitting notes), tone (the depth and timbre our notes have) as well as exercises to help your hands feel less pain and gain the dexterity/strength to accomplish the demands of the piece you are working on. I’ll also teach you different performance practices for different styles (i.e., the difference between playing in the style of Baroque music versus 18th century or 20th century music).

About Henry

I love playing and teaching guitar and my goal is to help every one of my students gain the skills to make music that is fulfilling and fun. I teach Rock, Classical, Jazz, and many other styles of music which I’ve had to learn to play for my career as a session musician and guitar teacher i

I only had Marc for a couple months (unfortunately had to move), but he is a phenomenal teacher and I recommend to anyone. He's very easy to communicate with and strikes a great balance between the technical learning you need with having fun.

First lesson. Marc was great
Chris
I only got to take lessons from Marc for a couple of months in the summer of 2016 (I had to move away for work), but he is hands down the best music teacher I've ever encountered. It's a year and a half later and I'm still benefitting from his tutelage. From beginner to advanced, you've found the right guy for the job.

"Ivan Gomez is one of the best guitarist I’ve ever met, I’ve had the amazing opportunity to take many online classes with him. Unlike many teachers Ivan puts a lot of attention in technique, saying that it’s the most important aspect of the your playing. I’ve been able to learn a lot about the guitar, as he showed me many ways to improve my playing. I highly recommend him for other students of any level."

He has a deep knowledge of music and knows how to get the most out of even the least talented people (like me!). He doesn't ever get mad if you make a mistake or forget to bring your music notes.
