Private Guitar Teacher

Hey! Nothing matters to me more than the music community, and especially the local music community. It's important for me to understand my students individually and create lesson plans that are tailored to the individual. Learning is meant to be fun. I love using references, analogies, and tools that match the student, creating a learning environment that is very comfortable. What makes me unique is I often follow up my students through text or phone call to assess learning. It's important to me to follow up throughout the week and answer questions at anytime. I like to think of my students as friends!

About Chivan

Chivan was a great teacher! I have some basic music background but he was able to make chords and music theory sound simple. He helped me with my technique and my playing got much better! Would recommend him to anyone :)
Laney
Chivan is excellent! I highly recommend his lessons.
Micaiah
Chivan is a fantastic guitar teacher, and not to mention a rockstar! He’s very laid back and relaxed when he teaches, makes you feel very comfortable and doesn’t have a hint of judgement about him. 10/10 would take lessons from him again.

As a guitarist, my primary concern is with your technique. I will show you proven strategies to help you play with power, control, and minimal effort. These principals set the foundations from which all world-class players are built. Every single lesson is designed just for you. We focus on your goals while having fun playing music together. We talk about good practice habits and how to achieve new heights with your abilities. You learn to play songs that you recognize as well as improvising your own.

Guitar is a fabulous instrument because of its incredible versatility. Together we will discover the many roles that the guitar can play including rhythms, melodies, fingerpicking, and solos. I will also help you understand the fundamental principles of music. This will take the guess work out of your playing, enabling you to make solid choices with consistent results.

Talk to you soon!
