Hi, my name is Pierre. I have enjoyed the music business for more than 30 years. My music education includes studies at the Swiss Jazz School in Switzerland and the Berklee College of Music in Boston.
I have been a music coach in Switzerland, in Los Angeles, in Long Beach, and since 2009 in the Mission Viejo area. During the 2009 / 2010 school year I was a music coach for the Saddleback Valley Unified School District (SVUSD) in South Orange County. I have also been a member of numerous groups, including Original bands, Top40, Tribute, Recording and Performing bands. Please do not hesitate to ask for references!
I teach students age 9 and up.

I've been teaching guitar for over 20 years and played guitar in bands professionally for over 30 years including bluegrass, country, blues, rock, and jazz. I teach rhythm and lead, open tunings, slide, and playing harmonica and guitar together, and how to improvise in any key. My students say they learn more in one lesson from me than all other teachers they've tried. That's because I teach music theory, not just how to play 30 chords or boring note reading that you don't even need as a beginner.
I hold bachelors and masters degrees in music education as well as a California Music Teacher Credential. Beginning guitar lessons introduce students to technique and musicianship enabling them to perform music of interest to them including melodies and chords.
