I have been playing for over 20 years and teaching for the last 12. Growing up as a student of Steve Vai, I was enthralled by the technicality of the guitar and used my abilities to receive a Bachelor's of Music degree from Cal State Northridge, in classical guitar and later studied jazz in the Master's Program at the prestigious Conservatory of Cologne, Germany. Currently I perform with various touring pop artists and local musicians in genres ranging from R&B and soul to country, rock and blues.
I have crafted a guitar method that encompasses all aspects of learning the guitar, from technique to reading music, in a fun way that is efficient and easily understood. With a focus on quick results and performance, I've had many students who have gone on to professional music careers.
Not only will you receive a personalized lesson plan geared toward you and your goals, but I can also offer other music instruction such as songwriting, ear training, & production/recording. I'll can even help you record your demos at my studio using top quality gear!

Max is a great teacher. He knows many different styles of playing (classical, rock, flamenco), music theory and focuses on technique as well. Working with Max will allow you to reach your goals on the guitar whether you are playing an electric, acoustic, classical or even ukulele!
