Overview

I am a motivated Guitarist with extensive knowledge in music education and performance. I have a Bachelors of Arts Degree from Cal State LA where I emphasized in Classical Guitar performance. 10+ years of guitar experience playing both classical and contemporary styles. I regularly perform on Electric, Acoustic and Classical guitars. I am educated in the classical repertoire and modern music as well. My favorites are Indie Rock, Folk, Worship, Rock, Pop and country. I also can teach Music theory and music history to those students who are interested.

*** Lesson Details ***
My number one goal is to make sure music is FUN! I believe in making the learning experience enjoyable. I am a laid back person but I am also extremely organized and always well prepared.

If you study classical guitar with me you will be able to site read at a intermediate level and perform at least 5 pieces. Anything can be achieved if you put your mind to it and work hard and practice. Its my passion to get you where you want to be as a musician!

Nanette developed a great rapport with my 9-year old daughter immediately and had her playing a song she knew by the end of her first lesson ever.

After one 30 minute lesson, my 6 year old daughter came home and taught me all the names of the strings and about the names of the different parts of the guitar. She is excited and learned a lot. I couldn't be more happy for her. Great lesson and experience! !

Nanette is an experienced and competent acoustic guitar teacher. She is organized and prepared for each lesson. She desires to understand her students aspirations in order to customize lessons that would help them achieve their goals. She demonstrates a high level of communication skills, the ability to articulate concepts in a clear and concise manner. She is uplifting when discouraged and patient in instruction. I appreciate how her homework is thoughtfully assigned and carefully paced according to the students schedule or needs. I highly recommend her as a teacher if you desire to learn to play the guitar.

It was my first time ever having a guitar instructor and I wasn't too sure how it worked, or what to expect from it. Once I met Nanette I instantly got comfortable. She is insanely talented, and an amazing teacher. Also, Nanette is a really chill person to be around and learn from. When your in a session with her you totally feel like your just jamming and having fun. I look forward to seeing her every week! She has taught me so much in such little time. You wont regret having her as your instructor.

PPP - Professional, Patient, Precise (Exceptionally Outstanding)

For such a young person Nanette is at the very top of her game and she loves her profession. That love is felt and gives me much confidence in my ability to improve and one day perform a rock song.

She is very precise in explaining each note, how to arch your fingers and move between notes.

Take Lessons is very fortunate to have Nanette!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So happy we found her!

Nanette is professional, knowledgeable and a fantastic teacher. My son already plays guitar, but needed Classical training to prepare for College. A mutual friend suggested Nanette, and I am so grateful! She is perfect for us!
