I have been playing guitar for 20 years, specializing in acoustic, rhythm-based guitar (pop, folk, rock). In addition to finger technique and strum patterns, I teach various note-reading methods including tablature, solfege, chords, and numbered progressions. As a singer/songwriter, my knowledge of guitar first grew out of a curiosity for songwriting. However, when I started teaching children how to play guitar 10 years ago, it became clear to me that the instrument itself yields infinite possibilities. Let's start your journey to learning the guitar together!

About Alfa B.

Hi everyone!

I am a professional musician with 20 years of experience in Songwriting, Singing, Guitar, Piano, and Ukulele. I also have 10 years of classical training on Violin. I love teaching music to students of all ages. I currently teach music at two Montessori schools, in addition to performing regularly around the LA area.

Here are some reviews from past students:
"Alfa is simply wonderful. Thank you for another great lesson. I am lucky to have found such a wonderful teacher who is patient, fun, kind, and also very experienced." - Sheila, Los Angeles, CA

"I have been taking violin lessons with Alfa for several months now and she has far surpassed my expectations. She is patient, friendly, always punctual, and well accomplished with the violin, piano, and vocals. If you are seeking an instructor, you will not be disappointed with Alfa! I highly recommend her." -Mike from Downey, CA

"Our boys started their piano and guitar lessons today. My boys can be easily distracted and teaching them is not always easy, but Alfa has a quiet, pleasant, and reassuring demeanor that is working very well for them." - Joel from Glendale, CA
My musical journey began with classical Piano at the age of 5, when I studied with Dr. Raul Sunico in NYC (former president of the Cultural Center of the Philippines). This training took me to frequent recitals at venues like Steinway Hall and Cami Hall.

At the age of 8, I took up Violin in school and elevated my training at the Children's Orchestra Society in Long Island, NY, where I honed my orchestral, note-reading, ear-training, and music theory skills over 7 years.

As a singer, I have 8 years of professional vocal training under the tutelage of Don Lawrence in NYC (Christina Aguilera, Mick Jagger, Lady Gaga), Tina Shafer (Avril Lavigne) and Frankie Anne in LA.

As a singer/songwriter, I have toured across the U.S. and the Philippines performing my songs, and played in such venues as The Shrine in L.A., Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, and Lincoln Center in NYC. My music has been heard on Film and TV, including E!'s "Keeping Up with the Kardashians."

I am self-taught on Guitar and Ukulele, but have been playing both for 20 and 10 years, respectively. I have taught both instruments for the last decade, and bring my multi-faceted musical skills to the table for every student.

I give my all to each of my students, whether on Guitar, Piano, Violin, Songwriting, Ukulele or Singing. Let's start your journey!

Alfa is incredibly kind and patient and insightful! I learned so much about my own voice and habits through her and highly recommend her as a teacher!
