Private Guitar Teacher

I understand that each person learns differently and has different musical goals. Because of this, I do not teach everyone the same. I do not teach out of any specific book or teaching program. Instead I design lessons around the student and their own personal style and goals. I feel that this creates a more motivating and driven curriculum and makes lessons more enjoyable for myself and my students.

I have been teaching professionally in the area for the past 6 years, and have been playing and studying the guitar since I was 11 years old.

Andrew is an excellent instructor. He is really knowledgeable in music theory. I took lessons for only a short time but was able to learn so much, because he used my knowledge of piano to help me understand guitar concepts and he focused on the techniques and songs that I was most interested in.

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.

I invited Jose to work with my bass students for an upcoming performance. He taught my students so much in a short period of time. His caring personality and sense of humor made the class so much fun. My students wanted him to come back. I highly recommend Jose Carrion as a guest conductor, section coach or private lessonss

"I would highly recommend Mr. Lasten as a music instructor to anyone who wants to learn music. He is a wonderful teacher who teaches all the minute things that can help you become a better musician. I have been contemplating learning music for a long time but was initially hesitant due to my work pressure. I am glad I chose Mr. Lasten as a teacher. He is patient with me and motivates me a lot when I practice during our guitar session. I have found him to be a very pleasing personality and I really look forward to continue learning from him."

"Best teacher I've ever had, period.

I've been taking lessons with Jason for about 5 years, and it's been fantastic. Jason is super-knowledgeable about technique and music theory, and incredibly patient. His lessons have always been tailored for me, and paced to match my level so that I can still make steady progress - and (just as importantly) have fun doing it. I've gone from stumbling to understand how to play, to playing whole songs, improvising, and analyzing progressions, and it's been great the whole time.

I ask a ton of music theory questions and he is more than willing to go into detail about any topic. He'll tab out solos, explain tiny nuances of how to to play riffs, and he knows how to approach everything to ensure that you understand - and that what you learned sticks with you.

If you want to work on a song or a technique, he'll help you do that. If you want to learn music theory, or guitar maintenance, or reading music, just ask, and he'll do that. I can honestly say that I've never had a better teacher in any subject, and that's not an exaggeration."

"For 15 years, I'd failed to stick with guitar through various teachers and self-teaching attempts. When I moved to Phoenix I started taking lessons with William. I've now been taking lessons with him for over 2 years.

William has guided me through all of my shifting interests. Starting with rock/blues guitar,then a foray into classical guitar and now into jazz. He has masterfully kept an emphasis on the fundamental techniques and theory needed to support teaching me the things I'm interested in.

William never fails to judge my mood and attention span on any given day and adjust his approach accordingly. If I'm mentally exhausted, we might learn a simple but fun song. Other days he will push me to learn things I previously thought beyond my skill level.

This April, I moved cross-country and William transitioned seamlessly into giving me online lessons.

On top of that, William is a great person and I now consider him a friend as well as a teacher."

"Paul is a teacher who really cares about the progress of his students. In our first few meetings, he introduced me to different chords step by step and doesn't give too much all at once which helped me remember each chord easily. When I play he also corrects what I’m doing wrong by showing me techniques that will get me playing better. His lessons are also fun as he always incorporates different types of songs for each lesson. I've only been meeting with him for 2 months and I am already seeing some improvement in my guitar playing. At the same time, I’m also enjoying the process of learning! I highly recommend taking Paul’s lessons for all levels!"
