About Joseph R.

I began playing guitar at the age of thirteen with dreams of becoming a rock legend. I never took formal guitar lessons, but I was trained in music theory. This background helped my song writing and composition immensely and helped me to decipher the seemingly overwhelming world of music.

In my lessons, I strive to add as much of this content as possible to help take some of the mystery out of what you are learning. I believe in offering a clear, logical, and practical approach to learning guitar, and I have honed this approach over twenty years of teaching experience.

Throughout my musical career I have played for and founded numerous bands across Southern California, in a wide range of musical styles including rock, funk, reggae, jazz, metal, post-mod punk, as well as several cover bands. I have also written and composed over 200 hundred songs, have recorded as a session guitarist on a hip hop album, and played amazing venues such at the Whiskey-A-Go-Go and arena stadiums.

Lately I have been focused on sharing my musical experience with beginning artists. Teaching is a passion of mine, as much as music is. In the future I plan to write a music theory book for modern guitarists.

Lessons

I have been teaching guitar professionally since I was in high school. Since then I have had countless students. In 2015 I founded my studio in order to take my teaching practice to the next level, adding bass and ukulele lessons to the mix. My goal has always been to teach students a blend of what they want to learn, and what I know they will need to help them progress.
