Hi! My name is Poh Hock. I have been playing music for at least 20 years and I have been teaching the guitar for about 7 years now. I provide lessons at your home, my studio and online!

I have a very hands-on approach to teaching and I believe that students should have fun while learning. I also do not teach based on a book unless requested and my lessons are tailored according to a student's needs, personality and goals.

I graduated from Berklee College of Music in 2013 with a degree in Music Performance and I am also a certified Yamaha Classical Guitar teacher. I currently play guitar with Metal Blade artist, Native Construct.

When I heard that the lead guitarist for one of my favorite bands, Native Construct, was offering lessons, I knew I had to give it a try. Having had only a year of experience beforehand, my skills were shaky to say the least. I've taken weekly .lessons for a few months and have seen a marked improvement in my fundamental skills. Not only does Poh Hock create a great learning environment, but he also creates a very relaxed one. If I didn't improve as much as he thought I should've over the course of a week, he didn't get on me about practicing more. Instead, he worked with me to determine where I was struggling and then would help me overcome it. I really can't recommend Poh Hock enough.
