Jordan G

Instruments:

My desire as an instructor is to help students reach their muscial goals the most efficent way possible. In 2012, I graduated from Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA with a Associate of Arts degree in Guitar Performance. Since then I have been perfomring in the Los Angeles area with various bands. In January of 2013 I recorded at Paramount Studios in Hollywood, CA. I also write and produce my own music independently. There is nothing I love more than playing and spreading my love for music!  

Peter H

Instruments:

Hi! I'm a Long Beach based songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist (guitar, bass, banjo, mandolin, pedal steel and slide). I began studying the guitar at the age of five.  A long-shot demo tape of classical guitar earned me a ticket to Boston’s prestigious Berklee College of Music doing a doubler major in performance and engineering. I graduated in 1991. I've played lots of music professionally and made my living by music. Not just the guitar, Music. I also like to have fun with it and that's the biggest part of it.

Jason H

Instruments:

I not only attended the Musicians Institute, but I also have a Bachelors degree in Marketing which allowed me to teach kids in school settings along with teaching guitar for over 10 years. I have played in bands, and had private lessons with with ex Megadeth guitarist Marty Friedman and Chris Poland. I studied Rock, Classical, Metal, Slide, Classic Rock, Ear Training, Music Theory, Acoustic guitar and the stylings of Jimi Hendrix at MI. I have been playing guitar now for over 12 years. I've had over 250 students ranging from 5 to 64 years old in the ten years I have been teaching. Many of my students have gone on to join bands and I have several that I'm still in contact with that are making a good living from playing guitar.

Jesse D

Instruments:

As long as I can remember I have enjoyed all kinds of music, though I never thought about making it myself until I got my first guitar. I must say, it changed my life! Watching my friends jam together in high school motivated me to pick it up and learn some basic songs. At Ventura College I immersed myself in the applied music program, studying all styles and specializing in classical guitar. Since finishing the program I have supported myself as a freelance musician/instructor and I can't think of anything better to dedicate my life to than sharing the music I love so much.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

Young students will benefit by starting off playing on a half size or three-quarter size acoustic guitar. If an older student finds it comfortable enough to do so, they may wish to begin playing on an electric guitar. There are many different student model guitars, which can be purchased for between $150-$200. Additional costs will be incurred for those wanting to play electric guitar, as amplification and cables will need to be bought. Consider that higher quality instruments are easier to play, and will increase the chances of the student liking it.
Musika offers one-on-one, in-home guitar lessons that are designed specifically for each individual student. Whether your lesson takes place in the studio or at home, students will get the exact same lesson content, with the only difference being the location. Parents will find home guitar lessons a much more convenient option for their child, as it saves the time and costs of transporting their children to and from the studio. Younger students will find that learning to play the guitar in the comfort of their own homes greatly benefits their development as they are learning in a supportive, secure and familiar environment.
Students typically start with the basics, such as how to hold the guitar, how fret notes with the left hand, and how to strum or pluck the strings with the right. Teachers will cover sight reading, guitar chords, and basic music theory, all of which are needed for students to perform and understands the inner-workings of their favorite songs. More advanced students can work on jazz improvization, classical technique, or rock or blues guitar solos.
At Musika, we suggest that adult students looking to start guitar lessons do so with a specific aim or goal in mind. This goal might be to write your own music, or maybe to be able to jam along with some of your favorite songs. Our teachers have the experience and ability to help you develop your guitar playing skills and achieve your goals. Developing the co-ordination and technical skills required to play competently and fluently can take time. There is no substitute for regular practice and guitar lessons from an experienced tutor.
Students are able to start taking guitar lessons with Musika by the age 6. Students of this age are advised to learn on a half-sized classical guitar with nylon strings, as it will be much easier to play. They will start by learning simple tunes on the top strings of the guitar. By ages 7-8, students will have progressed onto learning to play chords and how to play and sing along to some of their favorite songs. At ages 10-12, students are often able to hold a full size guitar quite comfortably, and can want to learn rock music on an electric guitar.
