About

I contacted Robert as he is one of the few guitar instructors that I found willing to work with my 3 1/2 y.o. boy. Through the communication process, I ended up wanting to learn guitar myself, and it has so far been a great experience. He's very understanding of our little guy and has been an excellent instructor to for this beginner student. He also gets my little guy even more excited about guitar lessons.

About

I am a bass player who has always played guitar here and there but nothing too serious, and about a year ago decided I really want to know the fundשmentals of guitar. A friend recommended Jacob Light, whom I've heard play before in local bands, and I decided to take the chance. I wasn't dissapointed to say the least. Jacob is a really down to earth guy who immediately understood my musical style and focused mainly on what I wanted to know, unlike other teachers I've had experience with. Even so, he knew what subjects to insist I learn, like improvisation. and scales. all this was done in a friendly, calm, cool yet persistent atmosphere which is just the right blend for learning, in my opinion.Soon enough I started feeling I really understand guitar, and this new kno'ledge even helped me with my bass guitar playing. Ive been taking guitar lessons with Jacon for 6 months and the only downdise I can think of is the fact he moved to California, otherwise I would have still take lessons from him, without a doubt.

Alexander was a guitar teacher for my son for over one year. This timespan was a huge jump in my kid's skills, attention and interest towards the instrument. Alexander used many new technologies and mixed them with good old classic guitar style being one if not the best russian guitar player. Many thanks to invaluable lessons with Alexander!

About

I have taken bass lessons from a handful of instructors over the years. Ariane is different. She has explained things to me that I have either never heard or never understood in new ways that help me to connect the dots. She makes the lessons fun and always challenges me and encourages me to stretch myself while giving me to the tools to do so. Do not hesitate to give hear a test drive.

About

Dave's a great teacher and guitarist and fun to be with. He's very encouraging and inspiring. I took several lessons from him, and always had fun while also learning things in the process - and I'm an experienced guitarist. You can tell Dave loves what he does. I recommend his lessons for guitarists at any skill level. I watched him teach my brother, who is a beginner, and Dave was great with him, too.

About

I have been taking lessons from Josh for about a year now (for guitar). He really makes guitar lessons fun, but teaches you a lot at the same time. He doesn't make you do crazy amounts of work either. He's very flexible when it comes to what you want to learn: he let's you bring your own music in, and he is very knowledgeable about different genres as well. I always am looking forward to the next lesson. The best environment for learning music is when you can just freely play with your friend or someone you are comfortable with...that's the environment Josh creates in his lessons, a jam session!! I would strongly recommend Josh to anyone looking for guitar/ukelele lessons! Thanks Josh!

About

I took guitar lessons from Nick Stargu for about 4 years. He is a fantastic teacher. He is very patient and understanding as he takes his time to ensure his students are grasping each lesson. I found that Nick is extremely knowledgable in many styles of music; he truly is an amazing musician! It is clear that his passion is to teach his students how to not only create music to express themselves, but understand the theology behind it. Nick is very professional, and I highly recommend him!

About

My name's Jeff Feldman and I'm a guitar teacher in San Francisco, specializing in teaching beginners. I also teach songwriting for guitarists. I've studied music for the past 17 years, including studying music theory, composition, and aural skills at the University of Puget Sound, where I earned my BA. Before teaching guitar full-time, I taught beginning sailing and racing to students ages 8 to adult, and am a TESOL-certified teacher. My philosophy is simple: Guitar should be fun. My years as both a student and a teacher have taught me that making a subject fun involves a personal connection to the material, giving yourself small challenges to overcome, and feeling like you are making consistent, real progress -- all in an environment where you feel safe and free to make mistakes. I enjoy working with students of different ages and backgrounds, and particularly enjoy helping beginners discover their inner musician. No prior music experience is required. For more information on me, my background, and guitar lessons in San Francisco, feel free to contact me with your questions.

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!

About

Hi, My name is Aaron Asghari. Since I was a teen, when I started to play the guitar at 14, it has become my true passion. Even if I enjoyed playing the guitar from the very start, it has not always been easy to advance. The private guitar instruction from an enthusiastic and dedicated guitar teacher provided me the motivation to push my skill level little by little. Private lessons provide students with the attention they need from the instructor, allowing each student to make progress at their own pace. Private instruction also allows every student to go on his or her own path in terms of the topics and musical genres that are interesting him or her. Learning to play the guitar is a unique challenge, but it can be very rewarding. I enjoy teaching students to discover their passion for music, and encouraging them to pursue them further. I offer guitar instruction for students at any skill level, from beginner to advanced. I also teach practically any style of guitar playing. I firmly believe that everyone is capable of playing and enjoying music. My goal is to make the learning process informative and fun for the students. I provide a comfortable learning environment for the student. I allow the student to set his or her own pace and still push them to challenge themselves to improve their skills.

About

I've been teaching guitar and music theory since 1991 in almost all styles which include rock soloing and rhythm techniques, blues, beginning jazz as well as various finger style genres such as folk, classical and flamenco. I teach beginner to advance students. I often use the student's favorite songs to incorporate theory and technique. I am patient but thorough and always respectful and professional. I believe in trying to pass on my strong love of music alongside essential musical knowledge. To me, music is about joy, passion, meditation, healing and self expression. I've been hooked since the age of 8!
