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]

Linguist, Speech & Written Language Specialist

I have approximately 8 years of musical experience with a wide variety of musical instruments (mostly stringed instruments). I have worked with individuals, focusing on the basics of guitar and guitar theory. Integral parts of music, like chords, progressions, and scales all play an integral part. Timing, technique, and repetition are other key parts to this musical puzzle. I am currently teaching English Literature and Composition at Foothill College in Los Altos, CA and at San Francisco State University in San Francisco, California. I have a Master's Degree in Linguistics from San Jose State [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]

Guitar and Music Teacher

I have a master's degree in classical guitar performance and have been playing for 12 years. I am currently on faculty at West Valley College. When I am not teaching there I can be found playing at events and weddings as well as teaching students from my studio at home. I have been teaching music for the past five or so years. Teaching music has been my passion in life. What I love most about it is getting to work with students one on one. Through the time of our lessons I get to learn how they think and what is the most effective ways they learn. Then I try to match their learning... [more]
