I can teach all styles and levels of l playing but I feel like I am especially great at teaching beginners. In my classes at Roswell High School I teach 3 classes of 20+ beginners at once. So I am really effective. I know exactly what beginners need to gain confidence and the ability to take their guitar playing to the next level. If you are not a beginner have no fear...I have been playing 28 years and have plenty of experience in many styles to help you meet your goals whatever they may be.

About James P.

My name is James Palestrini and I have been a guitar teacher since 2002. I graduated college with a Bachelors of Music Performance from the University of Georgia in 2004. In 2007 I received my certificate to teach music in Georgia. And ever since then I have been the part-time director of the guitar program at Roswell High School in Roswell, GA. I love being part time because it allows me the flexibility of teaching private lessons which I truly love doing.

I teach out of my house in Marietta and have also been dabbling in doing virtual lessons online. I have a pretty sweet setup for doing this now and I'm ready to take it to the next level. I see so much potential in virtual learning and truly believe it is the future of schooling in any subject. I use Google Classroom as a hub for all of my private students musical resources and communication and it works wonderfully. I record videos of a lot of the songs that I teach so students have a record of the songs they learned in case they forget anything I told them in our lessons.

As far as styles go...I can play most styles of popular guitar music. But my specialties are rock, blues, and classical. I have been playing for 27 years and it defines me as a person. I look forward to teaching you!
