As a guitar instructor of over 4 years, my main goal with teaching guitar is for the student to learn to enjoy the instrument itself. Lessons generally begin with basic fundamental guitar ideas and technique. We then move into playing songs and eventually into solo's and creating your own music. Whatever your goals are, I can make sure you achieve them.

About Halec S.

Hello! My name is Halec and I've been playing electric and classical guitar for over 11 years. I began teaching 4 years ago but now as a university student I've decided to move my lessons online. I also tutor math up to algebra 1 and physics at a high school level and have been for 6 years now. I love teaching every genre of music from djent and classic rock all the way to modern pop and rap. I take pride in creating an environment that emphasizes comfort and positive learning strategies. For parents of the next generation of rockers, I have over 6 years of experience working with children (6-14 years old) in settings such as camp, before and after school programs, and tutoring facilities. I am a fluent Russian speaker and am highly familiar with classical and traditional Russian music. Please feel free to send me any questions you may have!

My son has been taking lessons with Halec for the past few months and has been very much enjoying playing the guitar. Halec made him feel very comfortable and at ease, and was very patient with him during his first few lessons. Thank you for providing a great experience, we will definitely be continuing lessons with Halec moving forward.

Very patient, lots of fun too! I really enjoyed working with him and I’ve seen a lot of improvement in my guitar playing both on electric and acoustic. I started with basically no experience and I feel a lot more confident with my playing. He’s very, very talented and overall a really good instructor.
