The Art of Language and the Language of Art

Beginning at age 13 and continuing to the present day, I have explored the power of my own self-expression through musical performance. From chords, to scales, to modes, I enjoy the process of working with my students to help them discover the power and joy of playing guitar. As a self-taught musician, I don't encourage sight-reading or advocate for classical guitar playing, but focus instead on practical skills in the blues, rock, and folk idioms. Whether you're a public performer, or just a home hobbyist, if you're looking for tips to improve your playing, I hope to help you unleash your [more]

I value students' success, tutoring music, math, english, & more.

My mother began teaching me guitar basics, such as strum patterns, when I was in elementary school. Though I focused more on voice, violin, and piano until college, I began receiving one-on-one lessons in 2009 and was quickly able to begin performing with guitar in a singer-songwriter style. I have since expanded my skills and taught students basics such as posture, chord structures, scales, reading tabs and sheet music, rhythm, various strum and finger-picking patterns, and more. I love helping students to develop their skills and knowledge of this instrument while working on learning so [more]

Guitar tutor

I am inexperienced in teaching and tutoring. I have been working on my general education at DeAnza College and have been recently accepted into the California Jazz Conservatory. I am working on my Bachelors in Jazz Studies at the conservatory currently. I plan on transferring to another school after I receive my Bachelors to complete my Masters. I am new to teaching guitar, though I feel I am capable in bringing a beginner up to a comfortable level where they have the tools to learn more. I enjoy learning about music and would like to begin working with others who might find guitar and mus [more]

Berkeley Ph.D student for music, writing, and Arabic tutoring

I am putting this under "guitar" since the oud is related to the guitar. I have 4+ years of experience taking private lessons with some of the top oudists in the world (e.g. Charbel Rouhana, Tareq al Jundi, Mohammad Qadri Dalal) and have performed in Arab orchestras and smaller ensembles. My MA at UC Berkeley focused on Arab music theory in the 20th century. I also direct Berkeley's Middle Eastern and North African music ensemble. I regularly teach beginning and intermediate oud students and often incorporate Arab and Western music theory into my lessons. [more]
