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

Hey! My music journey began 9 years ago, when I learned my first Taylor Swift song on the guitar. Fast forward, I was able to translate my music knowledge into ukulele, bass, music theory, ear-training, percussion, and piano. After receiving my Associates in Arts at South Puget Sound Community Co

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 :)

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!

Blake is a really great teacher. I've been taking weekly vocal/guitar lessons with him for about 4 months and have seen really impressive improvement. On guitar I've gone from playing basic acoustic chords to transcribing and playing electric solos. He's also been teaching me theory at a nice digestible rate which has helped a lot too. I would definitely recommend Blake for anyone who's serious about vocals or guitar. If you put in the time to practice he can definitely make you better!

Really enjoyed taking my first lesson with Travis. He made the experience enjoyable and I could understand clearly what the goals were and what follow up work needed to be done.

Great experience so far!

I've certainly enjoyed my beginning guitar lessons with Travis. He takes the time to answer my questions and explain things to I understand the music and the best techniques to use. He is also very encouraging and supportive of my just enjoying the guitar, even with mistakes. So far, I am having a great time!

Wonderful instructor! I'm finally getting rid of my old bad habits. I very much look forward to every new lesson. Highly recommended.

Zander is extremely knowledgable and has the ability to communicate that knowledge in an easy tower and way. Great teacher!

I am a first time stringed instrument student. Zander has a talent for structuring lessons to make me 'work' to see progress. He is patient and answers my questions in a manner that make sense. I'm fortunate to have connected with him. Given his multi instrument proficiency and obvious knowledge base I can't help but recommend his teaching skills.

"First lesson with Avi was great! I have been playing guitar for about 6 months self-taught and could feel myself plateauing, in need of a teacher. He made things really easy by listening to what I want to improve upon and learn, immediately giving some useful tips on things I had been struggling with, and going over what we could do to achieve my goals. He's very good at explaining things in a way that is clear and doesn't make them seem intimidating, even if it's something I typically have a hard time with. Also, it was a great mix of physical guitar stuff (such as helping me improve barre chords), basic theory to begin with (such as how to form a chord), and also breaking down mental barriers which had previously kept me intimidated by songwriting. I am already much more confident and ready to try new things! Overall, if you are looking to improve at guitar or start for the first time, I recommend Avi."

"I first met Alex a long time ago when we were attending McNally Smith College of Music. Right off the bat, Alex impressed me with his ability to sightread and his dedication to his instrument. What started as a friendship quickly developed into a study partnership and then a learning opportunity that was of great benefit to me as a guitarist.

Alex spearheaded the forming of a Sight Reading Club and he was it's head instructor. Every week we would get together and work on our chops; very quickly I could see how valuable he was as a teacher and guitar coach. He helped me stick it out during the tough sessions and had the drive to sit patiently as I worked something out in my own time.

I would highly recommend Alex for his patience, persistence, punctuality, and (most importantly) Passion for teaching music. He is a fantastic instructor who I enthusiastically recommend to anyone looking to improve their ability to play the guitar!

Oh and BTW, he's a great blues player - just check out his videos!!!"
