John is a very good teacher. He figured out my learning ability and interest level quickly in the first lesson, and covers the material as much as I can handle In short 30 minute lessons. I leave each lesson with enough work to go over and practice in the coming week. He makes Ukulele learning fun and easy.

About Andrew
Andrew is a multi-instrumentalist (guitar, banjo, mandolin, ukulele, backing vocals) who settled in Las Vegas in 2013. After graduating with honors from Musicians Institute in 2008, he wrote a collection of acoustic guitar pieces licensed to The Weather Channel, then spent 5 years working as a show musician and top-40 musician for 3 cruise lines.

Currently In Las Vegas, Andrew splits his time between his original band, various productions in the casino showrooms, a well-known local country cover band, teaching, running his own music copying, arranging, and orchestration company, various freelance engagements, and spending time with his amazing wife and two sons.

Andrew's original band, "Tin Toy Cars," formed in 2014 and consists of two local Las Vegas musicians and a few musicians from Cirque du Soleil. Their debut album entitle
d "Falling, Rust, and Bones" was released in January 2016 and as a result of the volume of radio play across the country, immediately set a new all-time record on the national Americana Music Association Charts for highest new artist debut. The band's first music video made it's debut in March 2016 courtesy of The Huffington Post, along with a feature article. Along with the premier article were various national press releases and articles featuring the band and the album. Their second album has been completed and will be released in early 2018.

Andrew currently plays in the orchestra for the weekly production "Brunch to Broadway" at Red Rock Resort and Casino. The show features original members of Broadway's "Smokey Joe's Cafe" and the wonderful music of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. Band members include musicians from "Le Reve" at the beautiful Wynn Resort, as well as long time veterans of Bette Midler's Orchestra and Donnie and Marie Osmond's backing band.

Andrew also performs with local country cover and line dance band "The Voodoo Cowboys." The band can be seen almost any night in Las Vegas between the famed Gilleys at Treasure Island, Toby Keith's I Love This Bar at Harrah's Resort, and one of the three stages at the amazing Fremont Street Experience.

As a working flamenco guitarist and experienced teacher, I can reveal the mysteries of flamenco and show you how the music connects to other styles of acoustic guitar.

About Paul Jared
Hi, I am a native New Yorker and a guitar player since age 13. I played in blues/rock bands throughout my teens, getting to play the legendary clubs of my Greenwich Village neighborhood. My discovery of Spanish classical guitar music occurred in college at UC Berkeley, and I graduated with a BA in Music, then spent two years playing in Europe, before returning home and forming the band Not Heaven; we played the club circuit, Danceteria to CBGB.

I also began teaching at the American Institute of Guitar in NYC, and writing guitar instruction books (still in print!). Along the way I did a Master’s in Guitar Performance at Stony Brook, and have continued to publish, perform and teach the music which inspires me.

Classical and Flamenco music are my primary involvement, as a teacher, performer and composer.

After 20 years of playing and a BA in Music, I know how to break down the guitar and teach it to anyone willing to learn. I take the 80/20 approach to learning guitar and will get you up and playing in no time. If you are tired of trying to figure out how to learn guitar online or you feel stuck at your current level, then I can show you the most effective and efficient way to get your playing to the next level. Lessons will teach you the following:

* songs you actually want to play
* how to read music and guitar tablature
* music theory tailored to suit your needs
* composition and improvisation
* performance practices and music history
* how to play solo pieces and jam with your friends

About Justin
Like most guitarists, I had always wanted to play the guitar as a little kid. Luckily, my parents finally caved to the request (ok ok, incessant begging) and I began my guitar journey at the age of 11. After now 20 years of playing and 12 years of teaching, I am excited to share my experience and thoughts about how to learn music and guitar.

My journey with the guitar has taken me from the electric rock of Jimi Hendrix, to the shredding of Joe Satriani, then the otherworldly sounds and speed of Al di Meola, and, finally, to the broad world of classical guitar, Flamenco and world music. Over the years, I have compiled a set of skills, techniques, and theories from all corners of the musical globe to help teach students the fastest path to guitar mastery. My goal is to show you how to master the fundamental skills of guitar in order to
play in any style and ultimately create your own music.

Justin is an excellent teacher!! He is a master guitarist, always punctual, very courteous and gives 100% to my lesson. I am learning classical guitar and jazz guitar with him and I am delighted with the progress I've made in just a few months. I am playing beautiful songs and before his lessons I could not play any classical guitar songs at all. Justin tailors the lessons to help me learn the songs I am excited about learning to play. I most highly recommend him as a teacher for any style guitar. Amazingly he also teaches ukulele and mandolin too! He has a degree from Cal Poly in music and guitar and has over 20 years teaching experience. If you really want to learn how to play guitar easily and quickly, take lessons with him!

Are you a total beginner and just want to learn some of your favorite songs?

Would you like to learn some music theory and how to read music on the guitar?

Do you want to branch out into different styles of music such as Spanish guitar or jazz? 

Can you already play rhythm guitar but want to learn how to play lead and acquire some SICK TECHNIQUE and SPEED?!!

Whatever your musical goal may be, I have the educational background and teaching experience to take you there! Years of flamenco, classical and jazz studies at the university level and with some of the area's most renowned instructors have left me uniquely qualified as a guitarist. And over a decade of imparting knowledge in a FUN and RELAXING way has given me the experience to become a patient teacher who gets great results! Several of my students have gone on to prestigious conservatories, started successful bands and have students of their own! Group beginner lessons in the Silver Spring area are forming now and I'm also ...

About Amilcar
Greetings! I'm a professional guitarist, composer, music teacher and recording artist. I have an associates degree in composition from Montgomery College and a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Maryland. Along with teaching guitar lessons, I've been performing with other musicians and my own award winning band all over the U.S. and internationally for the past 18 years.

My training in a diverse group of styles including classical, Latin (salsa, merengue, cumbia, bachata, bossa nova, Gypsy Kings), flamenco, jazz, blues and rock have left me uniquely qualified as a performer. It has allowed me to share the stage with a diverse group of notable musicians and international pop stars such as Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Little Anthony and the Imperials, Luis Enrique, Jerry Rivera, Nestor Torres, David Pabon, Fonseca, Scot
t Ambush and Chuck Redd. In addition, my band has released three LPs since 2007 that garnered positive reviews and awards along with placements on TV shows such as "Chelsea Lately" and NBC's "Smash".

My teaching philosophy is to make learning fun, easy and rewarding...and I've gotten some pretty great results! I've had the pleasure of seeing some of my former students play on nationally televised late night shows, hear their songs on the radio, see them billed on big music festivals such as Firefly and SXSW, get accepted into competitive music programs and start their own successful music teaching businesses.

Lessons are offered online or in your home or mine in the Silver Spring, MD area. Beginning students will have songs to play right away and will see steady weekly progress with chords and single note riffs and melodies. Intermediate and advanced students are evaluated so that I can assess their strengths and weaknesses so that I can guide them to achieving their musical goals. It's always a kick to watch students play things that they thought they could never play!

Thanks for reading and I look forward to helping you become the guitar player you want to be!

I started learning guitar at 13! My experience teaching guitar started in Dubai at the age of 18. I had a music store where I also taught guitar. I love the unique relationship between me, the guitar, and the student. At 20, I left my home country of Iran for America after being signed by Ozzy Osborne. I was a solo player in a rock band called TarantisT. My experience is long-lived and extensive. I've also taken a master class with Joe Satriani, allowing me to dive into deeper levels of understanding techniques and musical creativity. Even after 25 years loving my instrument, I find myself still feeling as if it is MAGICAL. The first chord I played felt so good. I felt I must share this feeling with others to let them enjoy the majesty of the guitar.

I can teach Acoustic, Flamenco, and Electric guitar.

About Amin

I guarantee there is no way faster to learn guitar than the method I will be teaching you. You will be surprised playing your first song after two weeks!

Much love & looking forward to our first lesson :)

A little about me...
I started learning guitar when I was 13, practicing 10-12 hours per day, everyday. At the age of 18, I started teaching music and running my own guitar store in Dubai. By 20, I left my home country to New York -- my band TarantisT had just been signed by Ozzy Osborne!! We toured for a couple years, then I moved to the Bay Area and absolutely love it. I recently took Joe Satriani's Master Class called G4 which deepene
d my knowledge, techniques, and ability to expressive myself musically. So happy I am able to share these learnings with my students.
