The early stages of learning guitar are not a lot of fun. It usually takes anywhere from 3-12 months before students become proficient enough to start playing songs, and that’s where the fun begins. Having taught a great many beginning students, I know how to keep them motivated and interested to get past the first and most difficult phase of learning guitar.

I offer guitar lessons in my home music studio in Hollywood where I also record and produce music, so you know you’re learning from an active, music professional, not a bitter, burned out teacher who resents never having ‘made it’ in the industry. I truly love teaching and sharing the joys of this art form in hopes that it will become a life long source of joy for you too.

For intermediate to advanced students, we can jump right into the nitty gritty of what sets apart the hobby player from the professional. I will custom tailor your guitar lessons to what you want to learn, while ensuring you have all the essential knowledge you need to understand this mysterious instrument. With such styles as Jazz, Folk, Blues, World, Rockabilly, Classical, Flamenco and of course Pop, I can teach whatever kind of music you are interested in learning. To hear an example of these styles fused together, check out my band Fishtank Ensemble.
