Hey! Can't wait to meet you! My name is Taylor and I'd love to be a part of helping you take the next steps in your musical journey!

About Taylor W.

Hello! So nice to meet you! My name is Taylor and I currently serve as one of the worship leaders at Saddleback Church in Southern California. I am a music director, guitarist, keyboardist, singer, producer, and songwriter.

As a guitarist, I have played since the age of 12 and started playing for live events shortly after. Over the past four years, I have toured, recorded professionally, and coached students. In addition, I have music directed and played lead guitar for multiple church conferences and events.

My goal as your coach is to help you take your next steps towards your musical goals! Together, we'll develop a plan to make you not just a stronger guitarist, but a stronger musician. Let's do this!

Styles I regularly teach include: Contemporary Christian Worship, Rock (Classic Rock, Indie Rock, Alternative Rock, Hard Rock), Gospel, Punk, Pop, R&B, Blues, and Folk.
