Aaron M. Stockton, CA

Guitar lessons will cover chord strumming, and melody/riff picking in a variety of styles. Students will learn music theory related to scales and chords, enabling you to create your own music, play musically, and learn music more easily. Students may start on acoustic or electric guitar and will be able to cross over after learning the basics. We will also learn how to string, tune, and care for your instrument. Once the student is comfortable with the basics, we will focus on learning music in your favorite styles. From getting familiar with the instrument to learning to play your favorite songs, guitar lessons will be fun and informative.

Aaron is very knowledgeable and has excellent technique. He is consistent but kind in his feedback and gives praise without patronizing his student. A true professional.

Old dog learning a new trick

I'm a 58 year old complete novice. Aaron has been very patient and doesn't seem to mind starting from scratch. Every time we come to the end of the lesson I have something new, and wish I had more time.

About Chase

I started playing guitar when I was in the 8th grade. At that time I was into punk, and as I got older I moved into listening to classic rock, then blues, then all sorts of jazz and jam bands, and now classical and sacred art. And my playing of the guitar has following the same trajectory: I played in the style I listened to. One common thread through all of this has been an, at first unconscious, but now fully conscious focus on the art of improvisation. Improvisation is central in my own playing, and what I deliberately bring my students to do. And this is not something vainly individualistic. Franz Liszt, Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, Chopin; Coltrane, Miles; Ravi Shankar, Ali Akbar Khan; Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Clapton; SRV, Albert King, BB King: what do all of these musicians have ...

Chase has been working with my two daughters (ages 10 and 6) and me for a few months now. We enjoy our individual guitar lessons and appreciate Chase's ability to modify each lesson based on our progression. Chase is always prompt and organized. As a mother and a student, I highly recommend him.

Chase has been a great teacher to my son who has recently shown an interest in the guitar. Chase is patient and knowledgeable. He makes it fun by letting my son pick songs he likes and wants to learn. I highly recommend Chase for anyone looking for a music instructor.

Wonderful teacher!

Sarah is a wonderful teacher! I started from zero and she has walked me through reading music, fretting and playing melodies, and chords. I have learned so much and our lessons have opened up a world of ukulele fun. Between lessons I'm able to continue practicing the exercises, and also try new songs on my own. Sarah is very patient and so encouraging! I always have fun during our lessons! We have our lessons via Skype, which has worked out very well.

About Greg

I started playing guitar in the 5th grade and in middle school began playing in rock groups. At the beginning of high school, I started teaching in some of the local music stores in the area. While wanting more from my playing, I started classical guitar lessons with an Andre Segovia student, Rani Cochran, and soon started lessons from Warren Nunes, a top jazz guitarist in the Bay Area. While continuing to take lessons in both types of music, I majored in Music at the local college. There I played in the jazz band and in guitar ensembles. After receiving my A.A. degree, I took classical guitar lessons with Larry Ferrara at the Conservatory of Music in San Francisco. At this point I transferred to San Jose State University and received a B.A. in guitar performance and a B.A. in ...
