Gordy has been my keyboard (piano and organ) instructor since 2002. I started learning the piano as an adult. I've had piano and violin lessons in the past, so I'm experienced with teachers. Gordy is the best private lesson instructor I've had, which explains my long experience with him! He's the perfect blend of a teacher that inspires, yet isn't pushy toward perfection. He also instructs my wife and two children (ages 6 and 9). We're currently doing this in our home, which has worked well, and all 4 of us can take lessons in an evening. Gordy is also a great piano tuner/repair person, and has kept our 90+ year old baby grand which has been in the family in good repair. I can definitely recommend Gordy as an instructor for students of any age or ability.

I met Mike at GIT/MI (LA music school) and despite that we were peers I learned a lot from him about guitar playing that wasn't taught at the school. Aside from guitar technique and music theory, Mike has a unique and refined approach to composition being inspired by the Beatles and The beach boys as well as the usual shred gods like Randy Rhoads and Van Halen. He is thus able to teach advanced techniques but also demonstrate real world applicability in a song context. In todays world where most guitar teachers focus on technique at the cost of music, In the words of Van Halen, Mike is "The best of both worlds". If you are in any doubt about Mike's shredding capabilities, do check out his cover of Vinnie Vincents "Boys are gonna rock" on the Kiss My Ankh album. I cannot recommend Mike as a guitar teacher highly enough as found in Mike a fellow musician who is obsessively passionate about guitar music.

About

For the last five years I have perfected my teaching methods to cater to a variety of students of any age. I have experience teaching all styles, from beginner to advanced, and i am in the final year of pursuing a Bachelor's degree in Classical Guitar Performance. My lessons are unique to each student and their needs. I have experience teaching music theory, notation, and classical requirements necessary for students to pursue guitar in a collegiate setting. My teaching style is focused on keeping music fun, artistic, and easy; Practicing the guitar is never considered homework or a chore for my students. I have been playing the guitar casually and professionally for more than 10 years, and teaching for more than five years.

I find that many guitar instructors teach because they think they are supposed to. I, on the other hand, really enjoy the art of teaching. The look that a student has when they reach a moment of clarity in understanding the instrument is what I live for professionally. I want my students to understand the instrument as well as I do as opposed to just making a few extra dollars.
