Featured El cerrito Guitar Teachers

Julie L

Instruments:

I'm an experienced and caring instructor who loves to see students empowered in their own creativity and excellence.  I received my Bachelor's in Music Education from Ithaca College in 1988.  I have recorded and released three projects so far that have received radio play internationally and been on the charts on college & public radio.  My travels performing music in the U.S. and beyond have enriched my life immeasurably and I love sharing the spark of imagination with my students.

Andrew K

Instruments:

I'm a passionate and motivated instructor who loves working with students and sharing my love of music. In 2010, I graduated from Musician's Institute with an Associate's Degree in Guitar Performance.

Randall P

Instruments:

I am a very patient, knowledgeable and experienced music instructor who loves working with students of all ages. I graduated from Sonoma State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in music education and a lifetime California state teaching credential. I also graduated from the Naval School of Music with top honors and I served in the Marine Corps as a bandsman playing the French Horn. I have taught music in many public, private and charter schools in California for over 30 years. I also taught music in primary schools in Edinburgh, Scotland for five years. I am currently teaching music at Cinnabar Charter School in Petaluma. I am also an accomplished pianist and songwriter having won awards for song writing in the children's music category.

Ronald T

Instruments:

I'm a patient instructor that allows each person to grow at their own pace. We all have a goal of what we want to achieve and I guide you toward that goal. My primary goal is to create great musicians- people who are versed in many styles and have a handle on music as a language. I want to share my knowledge to help you find your musical voice and the creativity you seek through the guitar.

Nicolo L

Instruments:

I'm an open minded teacher and musician whose aim is sharing his skills and experience in order to give his students one more inspiration. I started with the classical guitar in 1994 and attended the Music School in Garlasco (PV), Italy, earning a merit certificate. After some years being self-taught, I attended the Lizard Academy and took lessons from teacher Fabio Casali, a Jazz musician, and I earned a merit certificate. Before moving to the United States I took classes from another teacher of the CPM in Milan, who helped me correct my mistakes. I think there's always something to learn or to correct. In the meantime I played and recorded some demos with different bands, an experience that certainly enriched me as a guitar player and gave me some personal satisfaction like being in a band recommended by a Heavy Metal magazine called Metal Shock.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

Before you buy a guitar, it might be a good idea to get the advice of a teacher, or a friend or relative who already plays guitar. Their experience about local reputable music stores may be invaluable and save you a lot of time. The first options are whether to buy a new or used instrument, and whether you want to buy an acoustic or electric guitar. Student models for each can usually be purchased for around $150-200. Used instruments do not always cost less, as some instruments retain their value; notably higher quality American made guitars like Fender or Gibson.
Musika offers customized one-on-one music lessons at your home - a time saving solution for busy parents and students. The convenience of in-home guitar lessons allows you to save time without having to transport your child to class, allows your child to maximize their busy schedule, and provides a safe and familiar environment in which to learn.
Beginners will work on core skills such as fretting notes, strumming chords, and playing simple songs on one or more strings. Once students know the basic open chords, they can begin to play their favorite songs! Teachers will cover sight reading and music theory, and can even teach students how to compose their own songs. More advanced topics might include jazz or blue improvization, guitar soloing, or classical guitar repertoire.
We recommend that older students looking to take up guitar lessons have a clear goal in mind, such as learning some of their favorite songs or learning to write their own compositions. Our experienced teachers can help you to develop the necessary skills to attain your musical goals. Learning any instrument can take time, as you will need to develop your co-ordination and muscle memory in order to start playing chords, riffs and solos. The best and quickest way to learn these fundamental skills is to take regular lessons and practice your guitar playing as often as possible.
At Musika, we offer guitar lessons to students as young as 6 years old. A nylon stringed, half-size classical guitar will be the easiest and most comfortable model for younger students to play, and at this age students will be learning to play simple tunes on the top strings. By about 7-8 years old, students will be forming different chords and playing along to their favorite songs. For students in the 10-12 age range, they are likely to want to learn how to play rock music on an electric guitar, and should be comfortable playing a full sized guitar.
