Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: WALDRON GUITAR ACADEMY (WGA) 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

I have been taking guitar lessons from Jared Sachs. He is extremely knowledgeable about the guitar and is very good at explaining concepts. He also seems to be able to find songs/leads that are at my level, so I am able to progress without it being too easy or hard. I would wholeheartedly recommend taking lessons from Josh. I have also had an outstanding experience with Waldron Guitar Academy. Brian has been professional and responsive every time I have needed something.

I’ve had a great experience taking guitar lessons with WGA. Within just a few days of contacting WGA, I was taking lessons with a guitar instructor who is a great fit for me, based on my level of experience and my interests. Brian is very organized and responsive, making all the logistics of scheduling and payment easy. My instructor Cheryl is a great teacher, and her original arrangements of popular songs make learning guitar accessible and fun for me as a beginner. I strongly recommend Cheryl and WGA!

Waldron Guitar is WONDERFUL! My 14-year-old daughter, with zero guitar experience, was so shy and noncommittal when first starting her lessons. Her instructor, Ron, was able to pull the best out of her with his stellar coaching, patience, and expertise. Ron emails a summary of each session afterward and has all-around superb communication. Brian has been so easy to work with as well. He is understanding and seems to put his all into making his business a success while evermore caring for his clients. I highly recommend Waldron Guitar to the fullest, for this has been beyond an immensely pleasing venture.
