Private Guitar Teacher

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.

Private Guitar Teacher

Experienced guitar teacher available for eager beginning students of all ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of musical skills. I taught myself to play guitar in high school, so just know the basics. I played keyboards, my main instrument, in several rock bands, so know some blues and rock riffs that could transfer well to guitar. I enjoy helping people to find the fun in playing guitar!

About Karen

I have a BA in Psychology, and an MA in Parapsychology. I studied Architecture for 3 years, and Music Education for two years. I was a National Merit Semifinalist in High School for good SAT scores, and in the Honors Society in High School and College. I play piano, percussion, flute, cello, guitar

Karen is a patient instructor. Has a relaxed home atmosphere. Made good use of the lesson time. Had appropriate practice outlined between lessons. I would recommend her.

My daughter 7yrs took lessons from Karen for 8 months. She was so patient and kind. My girl loved her and her teaching style.
I would have given 5 stars if she had got a real piano, not an electronic one.
Maria L.
Karen is not only a gifted teacher but an excellent listener and has an extremely easy going personality. This was my third lesson and I already "feel the love."

Sahar ..
Kept missing class without any heads up so I had to just wait around and hope he'll show up, ignored my calls and messages to reschedule, so I had to just get a refund from TakeLessons. As a teacher he is good, but very unprofessional behavior in terms of accountability and respect for students' time.
Whitney
I’m a super beginner. So far so good! He starts from the beginning and doesn’t make you feel dumb.

Evan was a great Bass teacher. I had fun every lesson and got significantly better at the instrument.

I’ve played for 25+ years and have recorded guitar for many artists (Grammy winners as well) in the studio. I try to teach as simply so as much knowledge can be retained as quickly as possible. I’ve taught guitar for about 5 years now in person.

About Justin

"I would highly recommend Mr. Lasten as a music instructor to anyone who wants to learn music. He is a wonderful teacher who teaches all the minute things that can help you become a better musician. I have been contemplating learning music for a long time but was initially hesitant due to my work pressure. I am glad I chose Mr. Lasten as a teacher. He is patient with me and motivates me a lot when I practice during our guitar session. I have found him to be a very pleasing personality and I really look forward to continue learning from him."

"Michael is an absolutely excellent instructor. I am a complete beginner and Michael explains things clearly and succinctly. He went through enough music theory to give me a good baseline to continue learning, but also balanced it with immediate practical skills. After 2 lessons, I'm already working on learning my first songs. Michael is both an outstanding musician and a great teacher."
