Introduction: I've had an extensive background in music and music performance. I've taught guitar lessons in other countries as well as the U.S. I have a degree in music theory and performance and a two year certificate from the Guitar Institute of Technology, in Hollywood, California. I received a Barry Manilow Music Scholarship in 2016 for my musical creativity. I love expressing myself creatively through music, especially guitar playing. I love teaching my guitar skills to other guitar enthusiasts. It gives me great pleasure to share my musical knowledge to my students. My goal is to enlighten them with techniques that are easy and fun.

My daughter has been getting guitar lessons for about 3 weeks and it’s been great. He’s creative with his lessons, adapts to the way you learn and is very patient. Because of his enthusiasm, I’ve decided to take lesson as well.

I enjoy working with Gil. I’m a beginner and he’s very patient as I start to learn how to play. The first time we met he gave me a song to play. It was a 3 chord song and gave me something to really aim for. I’ve almost got it down. Emily

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I like to keep my price low so that I can have repeat business, and not overwhelm my students on my hourly charge due to our difficult economy. I want my students to feel comfortable about my price as well as my guitar lessons, it makes for a more relaxed and better learning process.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    To find out where they are in their level of guitar playing, then to tailor a guitar learning program that best fits their abilities. Also, I will ask them if there is any particular style that they would like to learn, or a song that they would like to learn to play, then I would work on getting them there.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Over 35 years of playing guitar, writing and composing songs. Two music degrees in music theory and guitar performance. Many appearances playing at clubs, parties, restaurants, hotels, open mic competitions, and just casual jamming with other musicians.
