My name is Christian L. and I am a guitar/music instructor in the Orlando area. My interest in guitar began when I was 12 years old and blossomed into a full time obsession about 3 years later when I started playing small gigs as a solo guitarist playing simple jazz and classical pieces for small art clubs and events. Alongside gigging, I also began teaching guitar, ear training, and music theory when I turned 18 and have been teaching full time ever since. During that time I also spent 4 years in music school for classical guitar. Currently I spend my time teaching, recording, and performing various styles including rock, jazz, pop, hip-hop, musical theater, metal, and country. Throughout the 10+ years I have been an instructor I believe I have refined my teaching style to be as versatile as possible to accommodate any learning style a student may have. I am capable of teaching all styles of guitar at any skill level with an emphasis on ear training and general knowledge of guitar techniques. Slight disclaimer in regards to lesson length, price, and student interest: I have a teaching structure that I find to be quite rewarding for myself and the students I have had. My lessons do not have a maximum time limit, meaning a lesson could go for 2 hours, if that is what the student wanted, for the same price as a 45 min lesson. This may sound strange in that I would be losing out on a large amount of potential money but the simple answer is this: I love music and guitar as well as teaching music and guitar. If we are in the middle of a great topic that you, the student, are really interested in, there is no way that I am simply going to stop talking about it when the "timer" stops and there is no way I am going to charge you more for getting into a topic you want to learn. I find that students who spend more time in the lessons tend to become more interested in guitar and thus, better at playing. I do have to instill a minimum time limit of 45 mins however, any less is honestly just not enough time to get anything worth while accomplished. One last thing, music and guitar have made up the majority of my daily routine for the past 10 or so years and have literally paid for everything that I currently own as I have never had any other type of job. What this means is that I take the craft very seriously and I project that in the lessons. Basically, if you are genuinely interested in learning guitar and music at any skill level, I will show you everything I possibly can to let you meet your goals. However, if you do not take it seriously, as in you don't pick up or even think about the guitar except for lesson days, the lessons may quickly feel pointless. For more information on what I teach, feel free to look into the category entitled "Guitar" as well as any of the other subcategories that you are interested in.

Christian is an amazing human being who's passion for music and teaching is contagious! I have learned so much within the last 3 months with him than I have my entire music career! If you come across this review and are looking for a guitar teacher, don't think twice. Give it go and see where this amazing journey can take you! Best wishes!
Taking lessons with Christian has been a really phenomenal experience. He takes time to make difficult concepts easy to understand and tailors the lessons and curriculum to his students' learning styles and schedules. Really above and beyond as a guitar teacher!
I had an awesome first lesson with Christian, and I intend to have many more. He is clear and thorough in his explanations, he checks in to ensure I'm understanding his instruction, and he is genuine in his efforts to help me reach my goals. I'm looking forward to having my guitar technique and knowledge improve under his instruction.
