I've been taking online guitar lessons on and off for years and Shawn is by far the best teacher I've had. Shawn is a great listener, has endless knowledge, and can tailor your lessons to any style of music you want to learn.

Paul Grether is a very talented musician and teacher and a great person. He is wonderful with kids. He is sweet, smart, motivational, caring and funny. My 9 year old son loves him and loves his guitar lessons. He gave up tennis to have two guitar lessons a week. Paul is so affordable to top it off that we are able to afford two one hour lessons a week. I am thrilled to pieces. Anyone would be lucky to have guitar lessons with Paul.

I'm a professional composer and cellist and a teacher of cello, composition/music theory, beginning violin/viola, and beginning piano. I also teach ESL, and I have over 13 years of teaching experience! (Please scroll down for English lessons). Music: I have a B.M. summa cum laude in music composition from California State University, Los Angeles. I also have an M.F.A. in music composition from California Institute of the Arts (rated by Newsweek as the top art school in America!). As a composer, I am interested in opera, performance art, microtonal, avant-garde and world music (including Hindustani, Javanese, Chinese, West African, Celtic, and American Indian music). I love working on multimedia projects and collaborating with other artists. I am also Artistic Director of the Los Angeles Composer's Collective. As a cellist, my musical interests mirror my compositional interests while maintaining a strong foundation in traditional western classical music. I specialize in premiering new and experimental works by modern composers in addition to performing traditional music at concerts and other events, such as weddings, parties, and funerals. I have also been known to play my cello in the occasional rock, hip-hop or jazz band! While cello is my main instrument, I also play several other instruments to varying degrees of skill, including orchestral percussion, piano, voice, guitar, erhu, Indonesian rebab, and tabla. As a teacher, I strongly believe in the importance of music education in the overall academic success of children. I am dedicated to helping students of all ages realize their musical goals. I teach both privately and at the Saint Gabriel Foundation, providing free music lessons to at-risk youth in inner city schools and juvenile hall. My approach to music education incorporates traditional western classical techniques as well as many other approaches from around the world and from different styles of music that I have learned and found to be helpful. English: I have a B.A. in Translation and Interpretation Studies, and Spanish from California State University, Long Beach. After graduating I worked as a freelance translator and a teacher of English and Spanish. I worked in the Santa Ana Unified School District teaching Spanish and ESL in the public schools, and I worked at Berlitz Languages, and ELS teaching English in private and small group lessons. Through Berlitz, I also taught small group classes to employees of corporate clients, including Mitsubishi, Noritz, and Blizzard, among others. I am experienced in working with students from beginning to advanced levels. Additionally, I have helped many students with accent elimination, writing for business and academic purposes, and cultural training. I currently teach English privately.

Vince has been teaching guitar lessons to my 7 year old daughter for the past 2 months. He is patient, encouraging, and teaches with a good balance of challenge and support. Vince is always prepared and uses a book to supplement his teaching. He writes notes to illustrate his lessons which helps my daughter practice at home. Vince is thoughtful and encourages my daughter to collaborate during lessons and also tries to incorporate music that she enjoys. He plans two recitals per year (summer and winter) for his students who include children and adults. My daughter participated in the June recital after only one month of lessons! Vince taught her to play the Happy Birthday song as a surprise for my husband whose birthday was the day of the recital. The program was held at a Pasadena park and Vince centered the event around the student performances and did not promote himself or his program as many music teachers tend to do. Vince is humble, gentle, and encouraging. He focuses on teaching his students to enjoy playing the guitar and to feel confident about expressing their music. I highly recommend him to anyone interested in guitar lessons. He visits our home weekly for private lessons. His rates are fair and he is flexible should we ever need to cancel/reschedule a class.

My son has taken guitar lessons from Patrick for over the past 5 years. During that time my son has developed such an ear for music, an appreciation for the guitar whether it be acoustic or electric, and has gained a tremendous amount of self confidence! Because he can really start jammin! Patrick has been an integral part of shaping the artistic & creative talents that come with learning an musical instrument! My son has definitely gained so much more than he even realizes over the course of those years! Thanks for help in shaping my son!!!

Ken is an excellent teacher. He taught my son, JT, guitar lessons for about 3 years. Ken is very patient and motivational, which was very necessary as my son was quite young at the time, . He has an incredible way of connecting with his students.. Ken was able to make the lesson fun for my son and focused on the kind of music JT liked to play. I would recommend Ken to anyone wanting to learn how to play the guitar!

I've been taking guitar lessons from Steve for a few years and there really are no complaints. He's very focused on teaching the student what they want to learn and does a great job of helping/showing the freedom of getting what they want from their instrument. From reading music to playing cover songs to writing your own tunes and everything in between, there's never a boring or uninteresting lesson from Steve.

Gouaime has given me many guitar lessons as well as lessons in mixing and mastering music. He is a master, and now it is easier than ever for his mastery to enter into your brain, making you a master of your own musical destiny. His skill at guitar is rivaled only by his teaching skills. He is very relaxed, patient and a great communicator.

David is a great instructor! He is open minded about my music choices and very enthusiastic about helping me learn what I want. He has provided excellent insight on reading music and has a deep understanding of music theory, which I appreciate very much as a fellow musician. The setting is very casual and lessons are comfortable. Classes are always on time and he is responsive to accommodating any adjustments to my schedule. I would highly recommend David as an instructor for any instruments listed on his resume`.

As a church musician who have worked with Jackwind in several occasions, I must say that Jackwind is in the caliber of a pro or beyond. Nevertheless, he is so humble that we enjoy serving the ministry together with him, there's no 'rock-star' personality that you might see in other so-called talented musician. And I believe that his character as an individual will serve well in his teaching profession. I, myself, has benefited from his sharing of musical knowledge in many of those occasion and I highly recommend Jackwind to you who are considering him as your music teacher.
