About Nadav P.

Hi there,

My name is Nadav and I have been a professional guitar player and teacher for most of my life now. I have a very extensive experience playing festivals and venues in the U.S and abroad and have been teaching beginner and advanced guitar/bass and musical ensemble classes for 15 years.

I always strive to make the lessons fun (otherwise, what's the point? (: ) all the while being educational and try to have the student start playing actual music (simple melodies/songs) from the very first lesson.

For more advanced students- I focus on many valuable technics for live playing/recording situations as well as theory/harmony and ear training and cover a very wide range of musical styles.

I also teach electric bass and Ukulele.

I have graduated from the Rubin Academy for Music and Dance (Jerusalem) with honors and was a dean's list honoree while attending the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music (NYC) I have been awarded with the America-Israel Culture Fund's "Exellence in Jazz Guitar" award as well as many scholarships for various prestigious musical institutions around the world.

I'm happy to teach at both my studio in Los Feliz or online.

Speaking from the standpoint of a colleague of Nadav’s for many years and professional musician/educator myself, Nadav is the real deal. He is my top recommendation, without question, for anyone looking to study the guitar and/or music in general.

Nadav is an extremely gifted and skilled musician, composer, and bandleader with very deep understanding of playing the guitar. He has the experience and versatility to so in a multitude of different styles ranging from R&B, Pop, Funk, Jazz and Ethiopian groove music (check out his incredible band: Abbess Orchestra). He is also extremely kind, has a gentle yet “matter-of-fact” demeanor and is the consummate professional.

For anyone who has interest in learning the guitar and needs an instructor, no matter their experience level, it’s impossible to go wrong with Nadav. Just check him out and sign up!

I was a self taught guitar player since a very early age, so when I met Nadav for the first time I already knew many songs and chords. But my technique was a mess.
Nadav helped me establish a healthy and meticulous practice routine that fixed my technique very quickly.
I would recommend him as a teacher for every level.

Nadav is hands down the best guitar teacher I've had, and I've had a few.
Other than being very knowledgeable and a fantastic guitar player, he was extremely patient and sensitive to my needs. He encouraged me at times when I didn't feel like playing or practicing. And most important -he is a super fun and cool guy !!!

Highly recommended.

Nadav is just fabulous! He has a great attention to detail and is blast to learn from. He is well-versed in many different styles and could help any guitar player from beginner to experienced. He’s a creative player and a great teacher. If any of my friends were looking for a guitar teacher I’d send them to Nadav! Play ON and turn it up!!!!

Nadav is a terrific music teacher. He taught my daughter Ukulele for over a year. During this time she learned a lot and also had fun! Nadav approached his lessons with a deep technical expertise and love of music which my daughter greatly appreciated. I would highly recommend Nadav to beginners as well as those looking to improve and gain new musical skills.
