Teaching since:
May 2015

I most commonly teach at the home of the student. I am willing to travel in the San Bernardino County, Riverside, Inland Empire and High Desert areas. Depending upon the length of travel I may just charge slightly more for the cost of gas. So message me and Im sure we can work something out.

I am a graduate from Chaffey College with an associates degree in Arts & Humanities. I have been teaching various classes and lessons through this site, Musicstar/Creative Brain Learning since 2015 and at GuitarCenter San Bernardino for more than a year. I am currently attending Cal State San Bernardino as a Music Major with an emphasis on Music Education to obtain a Bachelors degree in the field. My main instruments are Guitar and Bass, but I also play ukulele, percussion, piano, vocals and more with enough proficiency to teach the basics. I mainly play Jazz Guitar and Bass, but I also play Rock and Classical.

Very honest & great teacher. It was my first time taking guitar lessons & Shane was definitely very helpful & most importantly very patient & understandful. Works around your schedule & goes above and beyond to try & do his best to teach you. I would recommend him to a friend or family member.

Shane is very prompt and down to earth. He really made me feel like my time was valued and made sure my questions/ concerns were addressed prior to the end of our lesson. He made me feel at ease during the lesson and not flustered for any mistakes... he even showed me how to achieve similar notes with different finger positions for ease and comfort.

Today was my 3 year old daughters 1st piano lesson with Shane. Shane was very professional, prompt on time and ready to have all the patience in the world for a child that is so novice in any type of music participation! He realy listen to what I wanted in my child's future path to music and we cannot wait for our group sections to go on and flurish from here on forward👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽...Great job Shane!

Shane has been teaching my daughter the acoustic guitar for several months now and I couldn't be more happier with her progress. She loves her guitar lessons and looks forward to them every week. Shane has been a very positive and patient teacher. He is flexible and accommodating to our busy schedule. I would highly recommend him.
