From basic chords and strumming to advanced shredding. Let's take your playing to the next level
I have been teaching guitar, full time, professionally, for over 17 years. Even if you think you're one of those people that "just doesn't get it" you will, and I can help. From teaching beginners their first chords, to taking advanced players to the next level of chops and understanding, I've been there. Let's rock!
About Gavin L.

Teaching guitar, and music for over 18 years, 10+ years of that time spent in professional music schools and shops. In addition, I spent 6 years in a special needs school, teaching general music, and guitar to students with learning and behavior issues. I have had the pleasure of learning from numerous guitar teachers and mentors over the years including, T.T. Quick guitarist, David DiPietro. Recently having toured the US with the band McClinton, sharing stages with national acts such as: Saving Abel, Adelita's Way, Framing Hanley, Red, Winger, Steelheart, Bad Seed Rising, LA Guns and many more. I'm proud to say that I have taken the skills I've honed during those years to stages and studios around the country. I am currently working on my solo material and will soon have releases available. I can help you make sense of concepts that many students find confusing, while focusing on the goals the student wishes to achieve. Lead and rhythm techniques, music theory, improvisation, and learning songs are all covered at the students preferred pace. Ultimately, I teach a student to be able to progress independently. Learning songs is a great way to get motivated, but in the end it's about learning the concepts that allow the student to learn those songs on his/her own and be able to use those elements to create their own music. I teach all styles, and levels! Also offering lessons on Bass guitar! I am fully Vaxed and now offering Local in home lessons. I am proud to offer affordable, high quality, dynamic, ONLINE lessons. Featuring high definition audio and MULTI CAMERA HD video, on a HIGH SPEED, RELIABLE, wired ethernet connection.

Gavin is an awesome teacher! Our 11 year old son has been taking lessons with Gavin for just over a year now and is still excited about every lesson! Gavin is patient, understanding, explains things very well, and very talented, He is also really funny and he teaches anything you want to learn and makes it fun.

You are the best guitar teacher ever. You always have patience whenever I screw up and you are always in my level.
