Whether you are a fresh beginner, a rockstar-in-training, or need some help with odd meters and sweep picking, I can give some friendly advice! If there is anything in particular that you would like to learn, go ahead and contact me, I'm sure we can further your progress.

About Anthony J.

Extensive musical training, including thirteen years of jazz and classical guitar performance and theory, coupled with real-life experience as a studio and touring guitarist offers me a unique approach to music instruction focused on your individual goals and needs.

*** Lesson Details ***
While I do have a general method for education, the priority is always on what the student wants to learn. If you have specific subject material you would like to explore, contact me, I'll certainly help you out in any way I can!

*** Studio Equipment ***

Depending on the situation, I can bring some of my recording and performance gear to lessons for demonstrations and exercises, including:

-Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier
-Gibson Les Paul Standard
-Carvin DC400 Custom Build
-Music Man JP12 seven string
-A whole host of other amplifiers, mandolins, acoustics, classicals, and folk instruments
-Home studio equipped with Pro Tools 11 and Logic Pro X for recording

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring with me basic gear for teaching (not much more than sheet music and a guitar), but I can not leave gear with students. If a student had questions about specific types of gear I may have, including effects processors and amplifiers, and would like a hands-on learning approach, they can contact me in advance and I can demo the equipment for them.

*** Specialties ***
- I have been working recently as a touring musician and recording artist for rock and metal bands for the past few years. If you need assistance with breaking through stage fright, I can help your live presence dramatically. Check out my band, Love District!

- Folk stringed instruments and odd tunings.
- Sight Reading, both classical compositions and big band charts.
- Improvisational techniques.
- Theory and Songwriting.
- Recording techniques.

Anthony starts from where you are with your skills and opens doors for your improvement.

I am to restarting an activity that I once enjoyed years ago. Anthony is the perfect instructor for this re-start: His style of teaching is positive and patient and his approach, with me at least, is focused on my stated desires of incorporating new runs, fingerings and a more melodic approach to my playing guitar: to rely more on the guitar and less on the voice. I look forward to practicing and to the sessions themselves since I started to see the improvement immediately.

I have been learning guitar with Anthony for around half a year. Anthony is a very professional guitarist. As a teacher, he is really nice and patient. Recommend Anthony to everyone who wants to learn guitar!

Smart, capable teacher. Passes a new song to me each lesson. I've learned a lot about different strums within three lessons. He's great!

Great teacher, motivator and encourager! He can prepared to my first class with a plan and handouts to facilitate my practice in between lessons. I have an ambitious goal and timeline in mind, and I believe Anthony is just what I need to get me there!

Anthony is an awesome teacher. I hired him for my 10-year old. Anthony not only taught her Guitar, he inspired her song-writing and music overall. He is very soft and careful in approach, spends a lot of time (most of the lessons ended up much more than 30-minutes though he charges for 30-min), teaches techniques and guides. We were very fortunate to have him as a mu daughter's first Guitar teacher. The only reason he is not teaching her anymore is that Anthony has decided to move to another state. If he continues teaching there, hire him without a second thought.

Thank you, Anthony.

I bought lessons for my 8 year old daughter. Anthony is very patience and is a really great teacher. He is very helpful with info on supplies and also gives tips about music that he learned over the years. He is also flexible with his schedule to accommodate me. More importantly, my daughter really enjoys her lessons and wants to continue.

I hired Anthony to teach acoustic guitar to my daughter. He called me before the first lesson and asked me questions about the type of music she liked and he came prepared to the lesson. Within a few months of being tutored, my daughter is excited about his teaching strategy and is happy about her progress. Anthony is a responsible tutor and has a pleasant personality.

I've had Anthony as a guitar teacher for a couple weeks now and I'm glad to say, I have majorly improved in playing, especially my technique. He is an excellent guitar teacher. He teaches a wide variety of different music genres and will help you play whatever is suitable for you. He is very concise when teaching new skills and has great charisma. His decorous and loquacious personality is always great as well. His skills are just ineffable. I recommend Anthony to anyone (beginner or advanced) looking for a meritorious guitar teacher.

Cool Guitarist !

You'll receive a warm welcome, and technicalities of the guitar is explained by Anthony comprehensively. Very good instructor for learning guitar in San Jose area. I would recommend Anthony to anyone who is willing to learn guitar from scratch.
