About

I am a bass player who has always played guitar here and there but nothing too serious, and about a year ago decided I really want to know the fundשmentals of guitar. A friend recommended Jacob Light, whom I've heard play before in local bands, and I decided to take the chance. I wasn't dissapointed to say the least. Jacob is a really down to earth guy who immediately understood my musical style and focused mainly on what I wanted to know, unlike other teachers I've had experience with. Even so, he knew what subjects to insist I learn, like improvisation. and scales. all this was done in a friendly, calm, cool yet persistent atmosphere which is just the right blend for learning, in my opinion.Soon enough I started feeling I really understand guitar, and this new kno'ledge even helped me with my bass guitar playing. Ive been taking guitar lessons with Jacon for 6 months and the only downdise I can think of is the fact he moved to California, otherwise I would have still take lessons from him, without a doubt.

About

Steve Sage is undoubtedly one of the finest guitar teachers around. He is an exceptional player and a passionate educator. He does not boast in being the best (nevertheless, he is a stellar player!) but he does express that he cares the most. You will learn practically everything one needs to know in order to play the guitar well. Furthermore, he will help you develop your own sound! I can attest to all of this as I had the privilege of studying privately with him for ten years. If you want to excel as a musician and player, look no further. - CA

About

My Daughter started Guitar Lessons with Chiddy when she was only 9 yrs old and she has been with her for a year and a half now. I could not be happier with Chiddy, she has really gone above and beyond my expectations. She has such a passion for music, as well as teaching her students, and it really shows. I am amazed at the progress I see week to week. Not only is my daughter playing the guitar and reading music, but she is singing also. I have never had any issues with Chiddy keeping to her schedule, and if there is ever a time that we can't make a lesson, she goes out of her way to make sure that we can get in for a make up. Chiddy strives for her students to succeed and I am impressed at how she is always introducing new ways to improve an already wonderful learning experience. I feel that we are extremely fortunate to have found Chiddy. I would highly recommend Chiddy to anyone looking to bring the joy of learning music to their lives.

About

My name is David Lees. I teach guitar and bass, both acoustic and electric. My specializations are in modern and classic rock/pop. I am originally from Manchester England but in the last three years, have been living in the Bay area for three years now. Background: With over 10 years of experience in group and individual instruction both here in the U.S. and in England. I have taught both children (as young as six) and adults in schools and privately. I also play the drums, guitar and bass with different bands on both sides of the Atlantic. My teaching philosophy: I specialize in working with absolute beginners to intermediate levels. Learning and playing music that they love and can relate to, is important in teaching students to play music. This way, the students can maintain their enthusiasm and motivation for learning, and continue to make progress. Students learn the fundamentals of guitar as they play and learn to play their favorite songs. We discuss the student's preferences in music during the first lesson. From the information I gather during the first lesson, I will create a customized lesson plan for the student. For the students to reach their musical goals, it is important for them to be have fun and enjoy the lessons; it is also important for them to be challenged in their individual skill levels. In the past I have worked with students whose musical tastes include The Beatles, David Bowie, Bob Dylan, Taylor Swift, Coldplay, Death Cab for Cutie, Metallica, Muse and many more.

About

I've been teaching guitar and music theory since 1991 in almost all styles which include rock soloing and rhythm techniques, blues, beginning jazz as well as various finger style genres such as folk, classical and flamenco. I teach beginner to advance students. I often use the student's favorite songs to incorporate theory and technique. I am patient but thorough and always respectful and professional. I believe in trying to pass on my strong love of music alongside essential musical knowledge. To me, music is about joy, passion, meditation, healing and self expression. I've been hooked since the age of 8!
