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 have been playing guitar since I was 12. I was a music major in college. I can teach many styles (blues, rock, funk, classical, flamenco), and can teach how to read music, play rhythm guitar, and solo. I play acoustic and electric. Thanks for browsing my profile! I believe that every student can succeed and become brilliant given enough time, resources, and motivation. My approach is both holistic and rigorous, and focuses on both improving one's learning ability as well as their understanding of the subject matter itself. I can assist with all levels of mathematics, from elementary to gra [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]

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]

I also have a rock band and have recorded 3 albums in the last 6 years in a professional studio. I have also taught basic music theory in middle school summer programs (Peninsula Bridge) and developed an easy/practical approach to learning guitar.

I like teaching Computer Science and I know a lot about it :)

I started taking guitar lessons when I was 12. I was in a jazz band during high school and I took jazz improv classes at my college. In addition to jazz, I have taken lessons in rock and classical styles. I really like computer science. It gives you the ability to create amazing things by just typing on a keyboard. You can make websites, games, Android apps, or any number of software tools. It's a pleasure to get to share my knowledge with others and get them excited about the field of computer science. I would've never even considered computer science as a career path if a friend of my parent [more]
