By Aaron D. - San Diego Guitar Teacher
Many of you know San Diego for its beautiful beaches, great weather, Sea World and the zoo, but did you know that San Diego is home to a great many guitarists? As a new resident of San Diego, I recently realized the amount of talent present in this great city. Wherever you go, you can always hear the unmistakable sound of the guitar, whether it’s the strumming of an acoustic on the beaches of La Jolla, some blues licks played on a Les Paul in a downtown club, or the plucking of a classical in the streets of North Park, there’s always something exciting to hear from this great instrument. Many great guitarists, local and non-local, perform and have honed their skills in San Diego and the surrounding areas. Local jazz legend Peter Sprague can be caught playing almost nightly, and Carlos Santana learned to play on the streets of nearby Tijuana. Bands such as Blink 182, Switchfoot, and P.O.D. have all called San Diego home, and local talent such as Intransit Audio, Foreign Film, and Science Fiction are making their names and building followings in the bustling local music scene.
So as a San Diegan, you may ask yourself, “How do I become a part of all this?” Well, for one, I’m sure many of you have at least one friend who plays the guitar, and he or she is always willing to get you started in the right direction. Or you can always find a great teacher here at TakeLessons who can teach you guitar lessons in San Diego. Whatever your fancy, San Diego is a great place for guitarists and music lovers alike.

Featured in Rock N Roll Industries Magazine. Taught by Grammy nominated guitar player Sin Quirin. I started playing around age 15 and never gave up. I'm influenced by my idols, but I play many genres and cater to improve everyone's technique based on interest.
Learn your favorite songs and riffs! Soloing, rhythm guitar, fingerpicking, and more. The foundation of music lessons is good ears and good time feel (groove). These are skills that all the best musicians have. That, along with some study of guitar basics will cover about half of our lesson time. The other half should be devoted to the kind of music that inspired you to look me up. My hope is that you will become a well rounded musician and guitar player, and that we'll both discover new music :-)
I also enjoy preparing for jam sessions, auditions, and competing for placement in school ensembles and for scholarships.
I began playing guitar 16 years ago and teaching guitar a few years after. I have played professionally in the San Diego area in many different styles including jazz, pop, rock, funk and 80's New Wave. I have a large collection of lessons for beginners up to advanced students which use popular songs as a way of addressing technical issues. I strive to make the lessons fun as well as informative while keeping each individual student's goals in mind.
The guitar is the most popular instrument in the world. Steven B is one of the best instructors out there. He teaches in students’ homes across the United States as easily as in the Coronado Music Studio. He combines methods of teaching sight reading, playing by ear, and improvisation. He teaches many styles of music, pop, rock as well as ethnic music genres. Teaching all the fundamentals of technique in guitar for correct hand positions, fingering, and position. Strumming, finger picking, hybrid picking, and the C-A-G-E-D formula is taught, depending upon the interest of the student. Steven B may be the only teacher out there who uses his recording studio in producing recordings to assist his guitar students in the learning process. Prepare to learn and have a lot of fun!

FUN!!! Learning guitar should be fun! I teach electric and acoustic guitar in a fun way. The exercises that I have you do are not boring, they are actual songs that you get better and better at playing.
I mix up the lessons and your practice with a combination of scales that can turn into instant leads, cords and the combination of cords that make up a family called a "key". I teach a variety of strum and picking patterns and styles, from folk to reggae to rock. The latest thing in playing melodies is tablature, I teach that, but I also believe that you need to be able to play regular notes as well. Best of all, you do not have to be a great lead guitarist to be a star, and if you want to sing while you play I can definitely teach you that!
