To me, learning any instrument is about balancing the exercises with the fun material that makes you want to keep playing. I am a technique-focused teacher insofar as making sure any student of mine is avoiding bad and sometimes unhealthy habits in their playing. I do, however, try to find fun ways to work on technique, with the end goal being playing repertoire that is fun for the student. I believe technical exercises have their place in learning any instrument, but that it's important to spend the majority of your practice time on material which is ultimately enjoyable to play.

I do have certain sets of books I like to follow depending on the student's interests and age, but I am always happy to tweak the lesson plan to fit the student's needs. I also tend to supplement whichever books I'm using with material of my own, to make sure we're also covering important topics such as music theory and maybe a bit of relevant music history in the process.

About Joshua

Hi there! My name is Josh, and I'd love to be your guitar teacher! I've been playing guitar since I was eight, starting out playing rock and roll, then focusing on classical training for my college career. In both undergraduate and graduate school, I studied classical composition as a classical guit

I was self taught when I started taking lessons, Josh helped me fix some bad habits that helped me push my playing to the next level!
Marco
I grew up on bossa, and wanted to learn how to play it. I had played guitar for years but mostly rock and folk. Josh was able to take what I knew and teach me how to play bossa music.
Casey
I never thought I'd study classical guitar, but Mr Josh showed me how important it is to have a good foundation to build from. Highly recommended!

My goal as a teacher is to give you the facility to express yourself through music. The key parts to developing this facility are:

1. theory -- if you know your theory, you know the best way to express your idea without having to think about it
2. technique -- the last thing you want is for your technique to hinder your ability to express your idea. Having good technique lets your ideas flow naturally

When you take lessons with me, you get out of it what you put in. Your job as student is to be honest with what you expect to achieve and my job as teacher is to give you the tools to achieve it

About David

I have been playing music almost my entire life. I first started on trombone in 4th grade then switched to guitar in 6th. I picked up the electric bass in my later teenage years and learned the upright bass (both jazz and classical) in college. My students get the benefit of my education, as well

5 lessons in and David has gotten me to break through some of my bad techniques and has also given me completely different ways to think about my instrument. We're just getting started and I couldn't be more excited to see where this journey is going to take my skills.
Kailie
David was/is a great guitar teacher ! I came to him with some knowledge on how to strum but he completely transformed my technique... making it easier & better to play! I’m looking forward to continuing my lessons with him & improving my guitar skill!! I Highly recommend David !
Jay
Very grateful to have found David on this site and add to the chorus of great reviews. I have entered the world of music through the bass guitar with David's instruction and am already hooked. Bass is a fascinating (and challenging) instrument so I appreciate working with a professional who caters to beginners. I am looking forward to exploring more about music with each lesson and gaining more confidence playing this instrument. Thanks David!

Whether you're a beginner who doesn't know where to start or have been playing for years and finally want to take your playing to the next level, I accept students at any level.

I'll give you all the tools you need to succeed including jam tracks, chord & scale diagrams, and tablature. With my course you will learn the notes on the guitar, chords, scales, strumming and picking techniques, music theory, sight-reading, ear training, modes, arpeggios, sweep picking, tapping, finger-style techniques, hybrid ...

"Greg is terrific. He is very kind and patient, and takes time to answer questions and offer advice about techniques and ways to improve.

Greg is encouraging also — he makes us feel confident. I believe he will make me a competent guitar player fairly quickly. I intend to take private lessons from Greg when our group lessons conclude. I expect to study guitar with him for a long time to perfect my ability to play guitar just for my own enjoyment."

"Jason is a fantastic teacher and really easy to work with. We focused on fundamentals and understanding the fret board. This was a new approach for me as he weeded out bad habits and taught me proper form. It took a month or so, but when i was able to develop an ease with the fret board and spacial awareness with my strumming hand, I was able to navigate the guitar with so much more confidence.

Highly recommend working with Jason as he is patient and wants you to become a strong musician instead of learning a few songs really well. Also, he is upbeat and provides good feedback so you continue to develop and grow."

Steve took the time to listen to my concerns and desires and catered to my skills making the lesson both informative to my learning and exciting by showing me I COULD play a song. I think Steve has a knack for this and it will benefit me in my aspirations to play in front of other players."

"I've been seeing Ahmad for about 2-3 months now, and thought a review might be in order to help those looking for guitar lessons.

First off I'm an intermediate player, who has successfully avoided theory since I started playing. Coming to Ahmad for some help to hit the next level, he's cunningly introduced theory into the curriculum, but made it fun to do so with creative exercises I can take home and work on. For the last month I've seen my understanding of playing the guitar improve, and he's also helped with the creative side using the tools I have at my disposal.

I've been through a few teachers in my time, and Ahmad's understanding, patience and vim for guitar really shine through. Would definitely recommend for whatever stage you're at."
