Private Guitar Lessons

Guitar is a very rewarding and beautiful sounding instrument to learn. You can just play easy chords and sing or go as extreme as you want once you master it.

I have been teaching the guitar for over 12 years.  I do beginner all the way through advanced lessons. There are 30, 45, 60 and 90 min lessons available. I have all the equipment and instruments so just bring a notebook and pen to make notes. 

Here are some common things that I work on with my students:

  • Efficient placement for your left and right hands
  • Finger Position on the guitar neck
  • Mastering guitar techniques quicker through the use of exercises developed over the years as well as based on Berklee College of  Music curriculum
  • Improving hearing
  • Organizing a guitar fretboard
  • Playing fast and clean
  • Using Alternate and Sweep Picking as well as other techniques such as legato, tapping, bending notes, vibrato, harmonics
  • Being able to play everything you want regardless of complexity
  • Memorizing songs faster
  • Improvising over Jazz chord progressions
  • Developing an ability to play what you hear
  • Playing complex jazz chords (9th, 11th, 13th)
  • Avoiding boring exercises and having fun when studying
  • Clear understanding of chordal shapes
  • Understanding of harmony
  • Playing in all twelve keys
  • Understanding and applying Enharmonic Substitutions
  • Constructing triads, 7th chords, as well as inversions guitarists use to write or perform in any number of different styles
  • Improving your style, intonation, technique, time, feel, and tone.
  • Voice-leading through chord scales.
  • Strumming technique
  • Playing Scales and Arpeggios
  • Approach notes and Continuity in Jazz Improvisation
  • Acoustic Guitar Techniques
  • Rhythm, time feel and playing behind the beat

and beyond…

Most schools out there will charge three times more than what I charge
