About

Mike performed at my Wife's surprise 40th Birthday. Mike was truly amazing. His guitar and singing skills are excellent. The best part is his attitude. He was suppose to play for 2 hours and ended up playing for 3.5hrs. Many of the guests sang while he played guitar. Every guest was jamming and he made the party ROCK! I wish I have another opportunity to listen to Mike play and sing. Thank You!

About

Hello, I am currently accepting students for guitar lessons at my South Berkeley home or at the Starving Musician in Downtown Berkeley. I teach the basics in a clear, concise manner with a focus on getting you to play some great songs as soon as possible while mastering chord structure, strumming, scales, neck visualization and all that you will need to begin to play with more authority and command of your instrument. For those who already have the basics down and are looking to expand their technique and musical vocabulary, I'll show you new chord stylings, how to put together cohesive leads and solos, challenging scales and bizarre patterns, how to play in alternate tunings and much, much more. I teach both acoustic and electric, from beginner to intermediate, and I'll work with your interests, from Rock to Blues, Folk, Country or Metal; it's all good. I have many years of experience as a music tutor and as a working, recording, touring musician all over North America, Japan, the UK and Europe. I work great with kids, and current, local references are available upon request.

Hello Everyone, Garth took me on as his student a little over a year ago and I could not me more pleased with his expertise in both recording adudio and with guitar playing. To be honest I don't think I've come across a better guitar player in my time. Whether you're a new player just trying to pick up some chords or a well seasoned player that's trying to master the art of lead guitar/ composition I think you won't have to look any further than Garth. He's an excellent teacher! There have been times where he went above and beyond my expectations to ensure that all of my questions are answered and even lends firther advice. Over all I'd give him a 10/10. You won't regret the time you spend with Garth and at the end of the day he's also a really cool dude. Hope you all find this helpful! Best, Benjamin

My son started taking lessons from Paul when he was in fifth grade, and we could not have asked for a better teacher. Paul is fun enough to inspire kids at any age, and gears his teaching style to each student. He's an outstanding musician and a great role model. It's been a pleasure to have him in our lives.

About

I create a unique curriculum for each of my students based on their individual interests and needs. All of my students get a strong base in practical theory, technique, and rhythmic awareness. I teach musical styles ranging from pop, jazz, and blues to rock, folk, and funk. Students are encouraged, but not required to read music. My holistic approach to teaching ensures that students get the theory, technique, musical awareness, and aural development necessary to become a strong musician. My students learn to fix and adjust their own instruments and, when applicable, how to use various electronic effects, such as reverb, delay, distortion, etc. I encourage a productive practice routine, and help students organize their time while working on new materials and just playing for fun. Whether you or your child have never played guitar or bass, or you have been playing for years and want to keep learning, I will help you gain knowledge and fulfillment from music!
