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

- 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
