Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Learning to play the guitar was one of the best decisions I ever made and I hope to pass the knowledge I have learned on to you. From my lessons you can expect to learn how to read notes and chord symbols. We will also spend time learning a combination of your favorite songs and songs that I think would help you grow as a musician. Learning proper technique when playing guitar will also be of primary focus. Although I am a Jazz guitarist, I would be more than happy to focus on any style you prefer. I can teach you to play electric guitar, acoustic guitar, or both!

Teaching since:

Hello! My name is Nick and I'm a Jazz guitarist based in San Diego. I am currently in my final year of the Jazz Studies program at San Diego State University. I have been playing guitar for over ten years and teaching for the past three. In addition to guitar, I am able to teach any level of music theory or ear training. While I emphasize the importance of dedication and hard work while learning to play an instrument, I also believe the process should be fun.

Ear Training · In studio

Nick is a very solid guitar player, has a lot of patience, and great ears! I had a one on one ear training/singing lesson with him once and he was really helpful. He broke it down to most basic level so I could really understand the concepts; it helped fix my problems. I highly recommend Nick!
