Methods: Your goals are central to my teaching. I will work with you to make sure we are on the right path to achieving them. I make sure to also get a good grasp of each student's learning style. I make custom learning materials for each lesson, which I spend lots of careful thought and time on to ensure the best experience. It's important that we focus on what you want to learn and have fun doing it! By taking this customized approach, I am able to adapt things and build on them to get you where you want to be. We will also learn songs of your choosing, possibly adapted to your current playing level.

Background: I have been playing for over 15 years and have a degree from Berklee College of Music.

I have 20 years of music experience, and 15+ with guitar. My goal is to tailor my lessons towards your desires - whether that be to learn music theory fundamentals, or just be able to play your favorite songs. I'll organize our lessons to achieve whatever these goals are.
One of my top priorities in teaching music is to keep you from getting bored. My hope is that very early on, we'll start working on songs that you are interested in playing, even if we need to simplify them a bit to get started. I find that if you can play what you love early on, then your interest in working hard to improve will persist!
I am also available to teach mandolin lessons, in addition to guitar.

About Alexander

I'm excited to start working with students interested in exploring music and guitar (or mandolin!)! Nothing brings greater joy to me than music, so I hope to help others achieve that same experience of getting to recreate the music that you love, or perhaps create your own.

"The request for a review is a bit premature as I have only had one lesson with Rina, but it's obvious she knows her stuff. In just a few minutes of observing my primitive play, she was able to help me improve and correct my technique. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute...and not one minute of the lesson was wasted.
She is focused, clear, and precise in her instruction. At the same time, she creates a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere in which to learn."

He will lead you in the right direction whatever aspect of guitar you are willing to delve into.

Guitar Lessons in Salt Lake City

By Megan C. - Salt Lake City Guitar Teacher

Hi, my name is Megan C., and I teach guitar lessons in Salt Lake City, Utah. Salt Lake is well known for its natural beauty, good food, and friendly people. Whether you’re a true guitar beginner, someone who wants to dust off their skills, a professional guitarist, or just simply a music lover, Salt Lake City so has much to offer you.

Salt Lake City is home to The Utah Symphony in the shimmering Maurice Abravanel Hall. Apart from their regular classical repertoire, the symphony has been known to have special guest artists playing jazz, classical, and even rock guitar. If you’re seeking musical inspiration and fulfillment, look no further than the Utah Symphony.

If you’re a jazz lover, (which if you’re not, come to these p

...

laces and you soon will be) there are some great bars that feature live performances. Gracie’s, 326 South West Temple The Red Door, 57 West 200 S Maxwell’s, 357 S Main St.

And last but not least, the Gam foundation supports Jazz at the Sheraton, as well as well as Jazz at the Capitol Theatre. World-famous jazz musicians play every month and have quite a following.

Utah is home to many smaller music venues that attract big and small names in the rock, indie, alternative, punk, and rap worlds, and they’re all great places to hear live guitar. These are perfect places to go test your skills after a few guitar lessons in Salt Lake City with your new band or as a solo musician. In the Venue is a popular one, and it’s located at 579 W 200 S. They have a split level crowd, and the top level is a great place to goif you want to avoid getting trampled by teenagers! The State Room is at 638 S State St., and has both theatre style seating and a dance floor. Urban Lounge, 241 S 500 E, and a few other locations throughout the city, often host local bands.

Not quite ready for a full set? Open mic nights might be a better place to start. There are so many options here in Salt Lake, perhaps you like to check out a complete list of opportunities yourself. www.openmicsaltlake.com is a good resource to see which days certain bars and restaurants hand over the microphone to you. In my experience, Utah audiences are always warm and unintimidating and help you get the performing experience you need!

One of my personal favorite music opportunities in Salt Lake City are the many musical festivals hosted here. The Deer Valley Musical Festival brings big names to an outdoor stage at a serene grassy mountainside. Music lovers come from all over the valley to enjoy the location’s natural beauty and the relax with the music.

Redbutte Garden and Thanksgiving Point both have popular outdoor summer concerts hosting a wide variety of musicians. Visitors bring their coolers, lawn chairs, and blankets and set up camp to enjoy the warm Utah evenings and musicians of all kinds.

We’ll end our tour of Utah’s music opportunities by teaching you about the Twilight Concert series, presented by the Salt Lake City Art’s Council. This event attracts thousands each week during the summer by bringing in big names, and the only charge $5. The low price is enticing to everyone, so sometimes you have to line up for blocks, but it is well worth it.

So there you have it, Salt Lake is the perfect place to learn, develop and share your musical talents, and to become inspired by other creative and talented individuals. Check out guitar lessons in Salt Lake City and have fun getting to know the music scene!
