Picture this....you get home after a long day of work or school, you feel a little stressed out by the world, wishing you had more time to get the endless list of things done and more energy to do them.....

Instead of turning on Netflix and zoning out, you pick up your guitar and play your favorite song.

Feels pretty great right?!

Learning to play an instrument is one of life's most rewarding endeavors, that just keeps getting better the longer you pursue it.

With playing an instrument, you will have something you love to do and look forward to doing every single day, enriching your life and those around you.

If you'd like to chat or have any questions just shoot me a message and I'll get back asap :)

Thanks for checking out my profile and I hope to hear from you soon.

Hi! I teach acoustic guitar for all ages! I have 13 years experience playing and 3 years teaching. I tailor my lessons based on each individual students needs/goals. My specialty is playing and singing together, to include teaching students how to play cover songs to match their vocal range.

About Josh

My name is Josh and I love to play the guitar! I also enjoy teaching others and helping people find their passion through playing music I've been playing for 14 years, acoustic, electric, bass...you name it. I've been in a few bands (90s covers, Blues, Classic Rock) but find solo work to be my favor

Hi there, and thanks for viewing my TakeLessons profile! I am excited to be a part of the team in Berkeley, CA. I started teaching lessons while in music school for Classical Guitar in 1996. From 1998 onwards, I played with a variety of musicians from Africa and Latin America, as well the as gre

I've been taking lessons with David for more than 2 years, he's amazing... he's very knowledgeable, patient, knows how to explain difficult concepts and can adapt to a broad range of topics, covering different areas that I'm interested on, including music theory, songwriting, guitar and bass, and music production.

David is both a professional musician and an experienced instructor, and you can tell the difference that makes in every class.

We started with at-home classes, but switched to online during the pandemic and that's working pretty good for me to.

I'd recommend David to anyone looking to learn a new instrument, get better at it or expand their music knowledge in general.
George McKale
Simply put, David is a great teacher. His lessons incorporated the perfect blend of theory and patience while opening up new horizons on the fret board. His style of teaching is very flexible so that one can hone in on what excites them. For me, that was jazz and David made a huge difference in my creativity.
Selina
David did a wonderful job, teaching me bass via Zoom with a lot of focus on what I wanted to do. Even though my interests ranged from technical to classical to theoretical to funk, he always had something he could show me and proved to have great knowledge of the instrument as well as of music theory and history. I would recommend him to anyone.

Ray is truly a fantastic teacher. I'm learning jazz after having a background in classical piano and he is incredibly knowledgeable in both, and has been an amazing resource for theory and concepts and how to apply them in a structured and consistent way. I am so glad to have found him, he's one of the best piano teachers I've ever had.
Arlissa
Very knowledgeable teacher. Was able to quickly identify what I needed to work on/start off with. Created a plan to keep moving forward and taught me what I need to get to that next step. I had been teaching myself and he was able to add onto that next step and pick up where I left off. Can't wait to get practicing and continue my progress.

"As a music instructor myself, I recognize Mr. Borkovski as an incredibly passionate and skillful musician and a bass guitar instructor to my 13-year-old son.
He recognizes and respects every child's personality and needs, and tries to find ways to approach every student to achieve maximum results.
Mr. Borkovski carries with him the idea that children can be successful in making music if given the foundation on which to begin. Therefore, he is very patient and meticulous in teaching every technique. He also expects his students to follow his instructions while practicing at home for greater results. Mr. Borkovki is very personable, friendly, with a great sense of humor. My son likes his personality and looks forward to his guitar lessons every week. In addition to building a sense of understanding and trust with his students, Mr. Borkovski embraces the parents of his students and values them as allies in their children’s musical education.

"I am very particular about where I receive my education/instructions. I'm extremely particular about educators/instructors. Be it martial-arts, college institutions, or bass playing. I performed an extensive search for a bass instructor, I am a beginner and I wish to become one of the best. Taking this seriously, I decided to go with Ray upon reading his credentials - I did NOT go wrong by doing so! He is very knowledgeable and he exudes attention to detail from his military experience - that's important to me since I am military. I am confident that I will be held to a high standard, not being allowed to slide by for the sake of time and money - but also having fun and being motivated to progress. I would not consider another instructor. When I am close to the advanced level, I will be considered one of the best bass players because of his teaching. Trust me, if I was not satisfied, I WOULD SAY SO!!!!"
