Teaching since:

I love to teach. I currently teach middle school and high school music electives at TREE Academy in West Hollywood as well as 1-on-1 music lessons at The Music Castle in Santa Monica. For my private students, I will come to you.
I started tutoring while earning my Music Engineering degree (B.S.) from the University of Miami. I studied jazz guitar at UM and during my many years as a guitarist I have performed genres from folk to metal to pop.
Most of my tutoring experience during college focused on math courses, SAT prep and music theory.
I am great with kids; I taught summer camps at a town-run skatepark for 4 summers.

Max is such a great instructor. He is patient, calm, and generous with his time. I have been working with him for the past two years and I would highly recommend him for anyone who is interested in guitar.

Max has been on time every time. He has established a very good rapport with my 15 year old (!!!) son which results in my son doing the homework and not dreading the sessions. My son seems relieved to be understanding the Algebra II concepts that he missed during the past term. He also seems way more confident and in a much better mood as if solving this issue for school was weighing him down before. In addition Max is very pleasant, very polite so his presence is welcomed by the rest of the family. Thanks!!!
