Private Guitar Teacher

I believe that learning music should be as fun and inspiring as it can be to play. We all have a vast wellspring of creative energy within us, and the goal of the relationship between the student and the teacher is to help nurture and develop that latent talent. For this reason, my approach to teaching music is highly individualized. I start out with the premise that the student has unique gifts and my job is to help them discover what those are, and develop and refine them in order to make beautiful and deeply satisfying music, through whatever instrument and in whatever style they are drawn towards.

Depending on one's starting level of experience, some basic exercises will be assigned to develop core skills, with increasing levels of technical challenge and complexity. Elements of music theory will be woven into practical lessons. Students will have the choice to incorporate material from popular and familiar music into their studies, and as they progress they will be encouraged to

I have been playing the guitar for 15 years. As a graduate from Southeastern Louisiana University, I have been teaching guitar and ukulele lessons as well as classes since the spring of 2017. I hold a bachelor's degree in music performance with my primary instrument being the guitar.
I can help you to acquire a solid foundation of music theory knowledge. You can help to better understand music theory concepts if they are paired with guitar techniques to supplement them.
If you are a complete beginner, do not be afraid! I will help you to learn at a pace which is comfortable but still effective for you. These lessons will be focused and designed to fit YOUR needs. Let's learn together :)

Great first lesson with Avi! Really enjoyed it, laid back and fun!
David N.
Avi has been teaching me for four months and somehow he has turned me into a semi-decent guitar player. I didn’t think it was possible to make so much progress so fast but it’s all due to Avi. I cannot imagine a better teacher. Knowledgeable, patient, kind and just has a way to take music from a page to the student’s hands. If I could give Avi six stars, I would.

Awesome first lesson with Avi! Natural ability to connect with kids!

"Chris is, hands down, one of the best music teachers I’ve ever had. He’s very patient and is open to adjusting lessons to fit whatever genre of music you are feeling at the time to keep you engaged. He also has an incredible ear that can figure out what is going on musically with any song, and can break it down for you and explain potentially why the artist chose to do things this way. If you have very clear goals in mind, and you voice them, I believe that Chris will be able to help you achieve them."
