Introduction: I teach fun, personalized guitar lessons to students of all ages and skill levels, and I've been at it since 2011. Choosing the right teacher for yourself or your child can potentially make the difference between a weekly obligation and a meaningful learning experience that can enrich your life! I graduated the Berklee College of Music in 2011 with a degree in Guitar Performance and have been teaching music lessons and classes ever since. My expertise include guitar and bass instruction in music theory, songwriting, improvisation (soloing) and ear training. I also have a strong knowledge of music genres, mostly specializing in rock and metal, but also including pop, fusion and funk. My career working in bands and as a touring artist also allows me to offer insight into the music industry for those looking to pursue music professionally! I always meet my students where they're at and endeavor to teach them the specific skills they wish to improve upon. For some, that means being able to strum through their favorite songs around a campfire. For others it means building a firm understanding of fretboard mechanics and using music theory to compose songs and solos to record with their band. Wherever you are in your music journey, I'm here to help guide and expand your knowledge with fun and encouraging lessons. Let's get rockin! Note: If you can't contact me through this platform I can also be reached via my Instagram, @heavymeital, or my website.

I bought my husband a guitar and lessons for his wedding present. He’s always wanted to learn to play. He was disappointed that the lessons were online(zoom). I said give it a chance. He’s so glad that he did! He is extremely pleased with the lessons. I highly recommend Alon.

If you haven’t taken Alon’s guitar lessons you are def missing out! He breaks them down in such a way that it easy for anyone to understand. He sends an email summary of the lesson you learned that day and practice sheets so you can continue practicing on your own. Very patient and super outgoing. Honestly the best!

Alon is an amazing teacher. He met me where I was and was able to help me make so much progress! After every lesson he sends notes and ideas about how to take my playing to the next level, so that I felt like I was getting great value for my money! He is very chill and low pressure and totally open to questions (and always has great answers for whatever I ask!). He knows so much about every aspect of music, so whatever I’m into, he can teach me about it. It’s really fun learning from him!

Really enjoying my experience with Alon so far. It's always a little intimidating playing in front of someone else, but his demeanor is so easygoing and as he says, "you're not getting graded!" He's got a great wealth of knowledge and can explain lofty concepts just as clearly as simple ones. His lessons are fun and practical and I'm looking forward to many more.
