Music is the fuel of my life! Born and raised in Russia, I was heavily influenced by the American/British rock/pop scene and started writing my own musical material in English at the age of 8. While studying classical piano and music theory for five years, I also picked up interest in the guitar and by the age of 19 I had an independent, self-produced album under my belt. Making music for a living was always my dream. This dream finally drove me to pursue my career nowhere else, but the entertainment capitol of the world, Los Angeles. While in Hollywood, I attended LA Talent Academy (Theatre of Arts, affiliated with The Musicians Institute) where I studied Music performance under the guidance of world class professionals. I have also worked with great producers, whose credentials include ...
I am very familiar with rhythm and lead guitar. Even though my degree is in classical guitar I still love playing electric guitar. I can help you play songs from RHCP, Led Zeppelin, Megadeth, and many more.
I have a very unique musical background compared to other guitarists. My first instrument was alto saxophone in middle school. I played it through high school and a bit in college. After I graduated high school I taught myself guitar and drum set. I also spent 5 years in drum and bugle corps on trumpet and euphonium. As part of my studies I also learned keyboard. This means my perspective and experience in music is different than other guitar teachers. There are many concepts I have learned from other instruments that I can pass down to students. *** Lesson Details *** From the start I will help you set goals you want to reach.

Experience with ADHD children
I teach young children using fun songs, games and classical guitar technique. I also teach adults and specialize in contemporary guitar. I welcome many styles of music, pop, rock, as well as folk genres of Latin America. I emphasize good posture, tone and musicality, and always a high level of enjoyment with the process!
Hello! Music is my life and my biggest passion. I've been a working musician and a teacher for several years and there's nothing more rewarding than sharing all I've learned so far with my students, to nurture their goals and aspirations and to make them aware of the great instrument they already possess. Every year I plan and host two wonderful recitals for my students, so that they can experience and share their progress with family and friends. Here's more about me and my education: I was born and raised in Italy and have been singing since I was a child but started a formal training during my teenage years with a private coach. During college, while studying Psychology at the University of Florence, I attended 2 different private music schools in Florence and Bologna, since it ...
FUN!!! Learning guitar should be fun! I teach electric and acoustic guitar in a fun way. The exercises that I have you do are not boring, they are actual songs that you get better and better at playing.
I mix up the lessons and your practice with a combination of scales that can turn into instant leads, cords and the combination of cords that make up a family called a "key". I teach a variety of strum and picking patterns and styles, from folk to reggae to rock. The latest thing in playing melodies is tablature, I teach that, but I also believe that you need to be able to play regular notes as well. Best of all, you do not have to be a great lead guitarist to be a star, and if you want to sing while you play I can definitely teach you that!
I am willing to travel to you all over San Diego, Orange and Los Angeles Counties. Music should be fun and lessons should focus on what you want to do with your improved abilities. Some students want to sing better in school choir or musical programs. Some are trying to sing or play guitar for Church or Synagogue. Others have their eye on Disney careers, rock/pop bands, in short being professionals. What is your dream? I will help you move closer to reaching that dream!!! I am a graduate of USD with a B.A. in Philosophy. I also hold a Masters degree, Teaching Credential Curriculum from Chapman University, Doctoral Studies at Catholic University of America in Washington D.C. I studied voice, guitar and piano classes beginning in grade school, high school, college and ...
