Introduction: I’ve played guitar for over 25 years, taught for over 10, and studied with some of the world’s most respected guitarists along the way. My focus is on the mechanics of playing guitar. Some teachers like to wax poetic about “feeling the music” or “accessing your inner musician.” That’s fine, and truth be told there’s a place for that. But if you don’t know the specifics of how your hands work to produce sound on the instrument, there aren’t enough “good vibes” in the universe to help you play your favorite song. That’s the difference you’ll get with me. I’ll break down in exquisite detail all the physical aspects of playing and make sure you’re approaching everything in the most efficient and ergonomic way possible. Let’s get to work! -Brian **PLEASE NOTE** I live in Los Angeles, CA so depending on your location, lessons may only be available via Skype or Zoom. Also, I always offer a free trial lesson, in case you are skeptical about webcam lessons (I get it... I was too!). But despite the initial awkwardness of not being in the room together, I think you’ll find them to be just as effective as in-person lessons. In short, please don’t let our distance deter you. I’d love to work with you!

I have had a few lessons with Brian and they have all been great. I have some guitar background but he has been helping me with my technic , which will ultimately make me a better player. He has been very accommodating to my schedule. I look forward to future lessons.

So far I’ve had a great experience at Waldron Guitar. I’m a semi amateur guitarists but it has so far been a very humbling experience of learning and growing and becoming a better guitarist. Can’t recommend enough!

Guitar Lessons

Brian is such a great teacher and meets you right where you are as far as skill level and knowledge (or lack of both!). I need help on technique because I self-taught a little and picked up bad habits. Brian is helping me grab the chords the correct way and focus on the fundamentals. He sticks with you with such a great attitude and I feel like the lessons are tailor made for me every week. He never makes you feel rushed and really thinks through what is best for you. Super talented, great teacher. Don't be afraid of Zoom - try him out!

I have worked with Brian for three lessons already. I like the way Brian is teaching on focusing the techniques. The teaching is very clear and efficient even it's remote. And Brian is also patient and responsible.
