Introduction: Hi! My name is Telesmar Sanchez, and I am a professional jazz guitarist and guitar teacher. I can teach whatever style of guitar you're interested in (blues, rock, pop, funk, jazz, etc.) as well as music theory, sightreading, and songwriting. My approach to teaching is holistic—you're not just going to learn how to play your favorite songs, but how they work and how to create music of your own. My goal as your teacher is to give you the tools to develop a positive and inspiring relationship to your instrument. I have 17 years of guitar experience and am currently in the MFA program for jazz guitar performance at CalArts. I've played hundreds of gigs across all sorts of genres and I've had dozens of students of all ages and experience levels. I have a strong passion for teaching and helping others deepen their connection to music. I hope we get to explore the guitar together! Lessons are available both in-person and over zoom.

Telesmar has been an excellent teacher in my few months of taking lessons with him. He makes a genuine effort to understand the goals of his students while presenting them with material relevant to their skill levels and interests. Having studied under many jazz guitarists in the past, I can easily say Telesmar has been the best and most concise teacher I've worked with. He is also an incredibly talented and humble guitarist and friendly person. Would recommend to anyone beginning to advanced who wants to further their knowledge on the guitar.

I was looking for a guitar teacher to keep me motivated, inspired and encouraged and I am happy I found Telesmar. You can see how passionate He is about his music and it translates in his teaching. His classes are accommodating, He is very responsive when contacted. Just a great experience and that’s exactly what I was looking for. I highly recommend him. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Telesmar was my first guitar teacher and met me exactly at my level. He helped me organize my practice schedule and recognized the improvements I made between our lessons. He is extremely bright and a joy to work with. If you want to learn guitar, Teles is your guy!

I always look forward to my lessons with Telesmar because not only is he an excellent teacher, but a kind and encouraging mentor. Since I’ve begun studying guitar with Telesmar I have noticed not only marked improvements in my playing (prior to starting lessons with him I was primarily self-taught), but also increased confidence in my musicianship and willingness to take risks with my playing. Telesmar is super down to earth and clear in his explanations. He clearly has a deep passion for music–jazz particularly–and it shines through in his teaching. I couldn’t recommend him more!
