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, drums, bass and instruction in music theory, songwriting, improvisation (soloing) and ear training. I also have a strong knowledge of music genres including rock, pop, metal, 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!

I have taken several lessons with Alon already and he is an excellent teacher. I've been playing metal guitar for about 6 years (on and off) but felt like I wasn't getting much progress. Alon listened to my "guitar goals" and carefully picked exercises and instructions that would help me improve my technique and speed. He gave me a lot of useful tips on how to practice and what to do when I get stuck. He also taught me some very cool things in music theory that have helped me better understand what notes blend well together, this will help immensely with learning songs and writing music. Awesome teacher!

Alon listened well to my requests and offered "spot-on" suggestions for me to use in my practice. He even followed up with an email summary of the lesson. Highly recommended.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I typically charge $45/half hour, $65/forty-five minutes and $80/hour. I'm currently limiting my lessons to online only.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    My first priority is to meet the student where they're at. First lessons usually involve some preliminary assessment and then formulating a strategy for ensuring the student is learning the kind of material that interests them and gets their playing to where they want it to be in order to meet their musical goals.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I began playing guitar at the age of 9 and percussion a few years later. I've been playing music professionally since the age of 16, and in 2011 received my degree in Guitar Performance from the Berklee College of Music. Since moving to LA, I've continued teaching in addition to recording and playing locally, nationally and internationally with bands ranging from heavy metal to pop to fusion and more.
