Phillip D

Instruments:

I am a very motivated instructor who loves giving musical instruction to anyone that is excited about music.  I love teaching and talking about all different genres of music and learning about other people's influences and musical experiences.  I graduated from the Berklee College of Music in Boston in 2012 and have been teaching guitar lessons in the East Bay area since moving back.  I've been fortunate enough to study with some world class musicians and to perform with professional bands since I was 16 years old. Whether you want to dig into learning the history of the blues or you want to get starting on learning some jazz standards or even just picking up some Metallica riffs/solos, I can get you started from whichever starting point you choose.  From there I always make sure to assess a student's needs and tastes, then try to apply music theory along with nudging the student into new musical territory.  I believe that any student is capable of learning any type of music with the right attitude and carefully guided instruction.   Also if a student wants to develop his or her ear training on the guitar, I can help unlock the secrets to developing relative or even perfect pitch.  Since the ear is perhaps the most important factor to anyone's musicianship, this will be an immense help to any student. Most importantly, my goal is to have fun and to share my love for music with anyone who is willing to learn and listen!

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.

Roberrto B

Instruments:

Music has always been my passion and the guitar has been part of my life since I was a child. When I got my Bachelor in Guitar Performance, I realized that Music was my way. In fact, I moved to Belgium where I graduated from the Royal Conservatory of Brussels and, since I believe that learning is an endless process, I decided to come to the San Francisco Conservatory of Music where I'm currently pursuing a post-graduate degree, in Guitar Performance as well. Despite my Classical Music background, I have a significant experience in playing different styles on electric guitar including Pop, Rock, Funk, Blues.

Jacob P

Instruments:

I'm a multi-instrumentalist, improvisor, composer and educator who takes great joy in teaching and sharing music with people of all ages. I've been deeply fortunate to have studied closely with multiple master musicians of various traditions. Perhaps the teacher who has had the deepest impact on my teaching methods is W.A. Mathieu, former arranger and bandmember of the Duke Ellington and Stan Kenton orchestras. I studied with Mathieu for three years. I've performed up and down the west coast and am an active player in the Bay Area music scene.
