Introduction: Finding your musical path is hard without the right guide. Whether you’re picking up the guitar for the first time, or you’re already a seasoned player, you need relatable, modern instruction from an experienced professional who can take you where you want to go. Hi, my name is Max Sindermann, and I’m a professional guitarist, composer, and educator out here in Los Angeles, CA. Over my many years of teaching, I’ve witnessed firsthand the challenges that hold students back from reaching their goals on the guitar. I founded Beat Road Music to make the joy of learning guitar available to students of all ages and experience levels. By using a modern teaching method with a mindfulness approach, I’ve helped many students learn to face new challenges head-on. You too can become the guitarist you’ve always dreamed of being!

Max at Beat Road Music is an A-MAY-ZING guitar instructor: thorough, patient, encouraging, helps work through problem issues without "shaming," and perhaps most of all, fun! He tailors your lessons based upon your musical level, total beginner on up to accomplished; as well as upon what kinds of music you ultimately want to play. His classical background is extremely useful whether you're learning Beethoven or the Beatles; and his emphasis on technique and musicality means you learn good habits from the get-go. He's also a great Zoom instructor! I look forward to my lessons with Max, and am proud of how far I've come under his wing. Atop everything else, Max is one of the nicest people you'd ever want to meet. Whether you're looking for a kind, encouraging teacher for your child, or (like me) an adult taking on a new hobby, Max is an absolute gem. Can't recommend him highly enough.

Max has been a real blessing in disguise. Not only is he an extremely kind and jovial human but he is a true teacher through and through. Max’s patience is almost as endless as his music knowledge. We are not only learning how to play guitar, we’re learning how to play WELL. He doesn’t let us skip a beat but does so with great encouragement and support. I started guitar lessons to pick up a new hobby but ended up learning so much more. I find lessons with Max to be therapeutic and many of the lessons I’m learning go beyond the music. I’m learning to be more patient, confident, and relaxed…which is priceless to me. Thank you SO MUCH, Max. Couldn’t ask for a better guitar/music teacher.

My wife bought me a package of lessons a couple of years ago from Max. I had some basic understanding of guitar but never really had instruction. His approach makes learning easy and fun. He is patient and comes up with interesting ways to convey concepts as well as technique. Max is an excellent guitar teacher and a really good guy. I highly recommend Max... he doesn't disappoint!

I am extremely grateful that I found Max. Not only is he an exceptional musician he is one of my favorite people to learn from. Max is patient, knowledgeable, understanding, and supportive while holding you accountable to be sure you're reaching your guitar dreams. With Max's guidance I've come further in guitar than I ever imagined I would have and it's become a great escape for me. Thank you for being such an awesome teacher!

Max is a great guitar teacher. Right from the get-go he was flexible, friendly and seemed to get what I needed as a musician. I've had lessons in the past where it was either boring (music theory) or too scatterbrained for me to connect all the dots. Max has a way of zoning in on what you need specifically at the moment and tailoring the lesson toward that. I don't think you can find a better deal in Los Angeles.
