Introduction: Welcome! WALDRON GUITAR ACADEMY is an outgrowth of the private teaching studio of Brian Waldron, Los Angeles’ top-rated guitar instructor. We are a collective of professional guitarists dedicated to providing the finest educational experience imaginable. WHAT SETS US APART? 1. —Our Singular Obsession— Unlike other music schools, at Waldron Guitar Academy we exclusively teach guitar. Rather than recruit other instrumentalists just to fill out our student roster, we’ve devoted 100% of our resources to providing the finest guitar learning experience imaginable.  2. —Our Commitment to Your Progress— Improvement on any instrument requires efficient, goal-oriented practice. While that might make sense in concept, as a guitar student it can be hard to know exactly what ‘effective’ practice looks and feels like. Our job is to take out the guesswork. After each lesson, you’ll receive a detailed email from your instructor with bite-sized goals you can reasonably expect to achieve before your next meeting, along with tips on how to focus your efforts for maximum results 3. —Our Expert Instructors— Our gifted, friendly instructors are hand picked from across the country. In order to be considered, each instructor must exhibit: *Mastery of their instrument *Expertise in a particular genre (classical, fingerstyle, jazz, blues, country, metal). *Extensive teaching experience (10 years minimum) *A passion for working with students of all abilities, including total beginners. 4. —Our ‘It Takes A Village’ Approach— When you enroll at Waldron Guitar Academy you’ll have access to decades of wisdom from some of the nations finest guitar instructors. While you’ll always have a primary instructor you see each week, it’s not uncommon for students to take one-off lessons from other teachers who may specialize in an area their primary teacher does not. Are you a classical guitarist who wants to learn to a face-melting metal solo? Or vice versa? We’ve got you covered ;) Contact us now for your free consultation and we'll match you with a teacher who's right for you. Talk to you soon! -Brian Waldron Head Instructor, Waldron Guitar Academy

Guitar Lessons

I've been wanting to learn guitar for 20 years and thought I would never get it. With Brian's excellent style of teaching I learned more in the first lesson than I had in 20 years "learning" from friends. He is teaching me the right way. Learning how to read music not just how to play a song. Every lesson is intresting and every week I get more excited about my future with the guitar. If you have any thought of taking lessons Brian should be your first choice. I started out wanting to be able to strum a few songs. I no longer want to stop at that point, I want to learning more. I'm extremely satisfied with my choice, and confident you will be too.

Guitar Lessons

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.

This is a well thought out business that is being operated. Amazing communication, professional, efficient and fun. Brian is constantly checking in to assure you are receiving the experience you are expecting. In addition, the lessons have been so informative as well as fun. I have totally connected with my instructor and learned a ton. I would highly recommended checking these guys out!

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!

FAQs

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

    Lessons are sold in packages of 4, which expire 6 weeks after the date of the first lesson. Three types of lessons are offered: 35min, 45min, 65min. At the end of every lesson (or later that same day) you will receive a personalized email from your instructor with specific goals and instructions to guide you in your practice. You'll also receive a video recording of the lesson so that you can relive all those groundbreaking tips, "Aha!" moments, and magical exercises from your last meeting.

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

    Once you connect with us on Thumbtack, we'll set up a phone consult so we can discuss your musical experience and goals in more detail. From there we'll figure out which of our qualified instructors would be the best fit for you, and set you up with a trial lesson so you can see for yourself ;) We have instructors in just about any genre you can think of. Classical, Fingerstyle, Blues, Jazz, Metal, Country. At Waldron Guitar Academy, the musical world is at your fingertips!

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

    Our instructors possess music degrees from some of the nation's most selective music schools (or equivalent professional experience). But that's not all... Waldron Guitar Academy requires all its teachers to have a minimum of 10 years teaching experience (on top of their decades of experience as players) to even be considered. This is a far cry from most 'neighborhood' music schools and guitar stores, which will often hire any schlub with a music degree and a smile.
