Experienced guitar teacher of 20+ years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of guitar skills. I use Hal Leonard books, & Award WInning #1 best program Steve Krenz's Learn & Master Guitar and also have the following tools available to use during lessons. I have a Mesa boogie all tube amp and Line 6 spider modeling amplifier, Cordoba Classical guitar, Ibanez and Epiphone Riviera deluxe electric, Taylor Acoustic, Presonus Recording equipment, sheet music, tab and more. Let's turn the amp to 11 and rock and roll!"

I can teach guitar fundamentals, that most songs only use 3 chords (1-4-5 song progressions the stuff that 85% of all music we listen to is made up of), left hand / right hand coordination, picking techniques, mute, & play notes on the guitar, soloing, strumming patterns, fingerpicking, using a capo, alternate tunings, acoustic blues, ...

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.

As a modern self-taught virtuoso, I follow a modern customer-oriented approach based on win-win and long term success. The guitar student is an aspiring music practicing master, and I make sure to guide the students to realize their own desires.

As long as he/she focuses on the image of the perfect player he/she wishes to become, I am committed to the full extent to motivate, encourage, help, assist, suggest improvements, correct mistakes, answer questions and everything that will speed up the student's ramp-up into becoming that perfect player.

I had a hard time trynna learn the skills i used to watch in concerts or youtube and with the help of Mr Allouch i made a drastic improvement and all of my struggling vanished, i'm pretty much able to play any song i can think of thanks to him!
Younes
Best instructor ever
Joey
Mr. Allouch is an excellent instructor. For me, placing my fingers on the guitar is hard, but he taught me to put my fingers in a perpendicular position and to make sure to press hard on the string so it will make a good sound. Thanks to that advice, it is easier to play the notes correctly. He has made it fun for me to learn guitar. He is an excellent guitar player and I am very happy that he has shared his passion with me. Merci beaucoup Mr. Allouch!

I'm keeping Trevor for as long as he will have me as a student. I have learned so much more than I could dream of on my own, even with friends and all the goodies on-line. I really am starting to feel like a guitar player now thanks to Trevor.

Online Guitar Teacher

I've been playing guitar, composing multi-instrumental music, producing music, playing in professional and local bands, and have been an active studio session player for 17 years.
I have been teaching guitar for just as long, and helped many students understand break-through concepts and acquire skills that other teachers were unable to.
I have taught total and complete beginners to play their favorite song after 2 weeks, with 1 hour per day practice time. I taught my best friend and my brother to play guitar, both are now in professional touring bands.

About Peter

I have been composing and producing music for 20+ years. Since I got my first guitar at 13, I've been playing in bands, writing, recording & mixing songs. Touring with bands throughout the U.S. And personally learning from my network of industry veterans who have worked with bands such as: The Roll

Peter seems like at nice guy with a true passion for music. In a short amount of time, he was able to share a good place to start with in guitar. Thanks Peter!
George
I had a great time learning how to play guitar and am on my way to playing my favorite songs! Would highly recommend!!
Joseph
I learned everything I know about guitar from Peter, because of him I have an excellent understanding of not only how to play guitar, but how to structure and write music. This has led me to play live music and jam with musicians on a regular basis. He is an amazing guitar instructor, and can teach you whatever you want to learn — I highly recommend him.

"Very Comprehensive

So after my first lesson with Rob I have to say it left a pretty good impression on me. Pretty good vibes coming from him and he makes the material relatively easy to understand. He takes the time to really assess what it is you're aiming for and doesn't try to impose his own values into your musical style. All in all I feel that this is going to be a great teacher student relationship and I'm looking forward to really delving into mastering my guitar with him."

I understand so much more about music, composition, playing in ensembles, among other aspects of making music thanks to him. He was always patient with me and found ways to make me excited about playing everyday-even if my assignments were practicing difficult chords or scales. Truly a fantastic musician and leader."
