Introduction: Hi my name is Tim, I'm a guitarist who performs with various artists in the Bay Area and Los Angeles areas. In addition i'm also an artist and a guitar teacher! I studied guitar performance/theory at the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance in London and have been teaching/playing professionally for ten years. I really love to show students tricks and techniques that help them sound their best. I teach all ages, skill levels and most styles of music. Besides showing my students new songs/scales/techniques i also believe in giving them the tools to be able to continue learning on their own. This is vital in todays world where you can find guitar lessons on youtube but almost no guidance or direction which is required to apply the skills. For the more intermediate and advanced students I specialize in Rock, R&B, Funk, Blues, neo-soul and Jazz so we can really dive into those styles. I make sure that my guitar lessons are fun and informative that hopefully bring a new energy to your music!

Guitar Lessons

My daughter had two lessons with Tim. So far it's been great. He is professional yet makes the lessons fun. He uses great apps/websites to aide in learning the guitar. My daughter is starting to learn a new song. She is looking forward to learning more from him.

Guitar Lessons

Tim does a fantastic job. He works to understand the biggest needs of his students and how to best get them from where they are to where they want to be as guitar players. He gives me plenty to work on throughout the week. All exercises keeps the process fun and productive. My playing has already noticeably improved after just 3 lessons. Highly recommended.

Guitar Lessons

I decided to begin guitar in my 50s. Tim has been the perfect teacher for me. He is patient, he is flexible with scheduling, he is an excellent instructor and most critically he listens to my goals and adapts our lessons to achieve these goals.

Guitar Lessons

Tim is a great guitar instructor. My son truly enjoys his lessons and looks forward to it every week. They have fun and my son learns so much. Tim is very patient, fun and knowledgeable. He is great at responding to messages and providing lessons and things to work on during the week that were taught in the lesson. My son and I both give him high praise. If you're looking for someone to teach you the guitar, Tim is who you want.

FAQs

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

    I charge $40 per hour, $35 for 45 minute lessons and 30 for half hour lessons.

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

    I typically start by assessing the students knowledge of chords, songs and scales. I then tailor my lessons to adapt to their skill level and try to give them the next couple steps forward whether that be technique, a new song, a new chord or scale.

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

    I studied guitar performance/theory at the ICMP (Institute of Contemporary Music Performance) in London. I was awarded a full ride scholarship to study.
