Featured Tarzana Guitar Teachers

Mark Z

Instruments:

I have been playing professionally for over 40 years and have taught music for 30.  I enjoy teaching people to play or sing music because it is a gift to be given and recie ved.  I can also assist with orchestration or arranging instruments into a group format for performance.  I can teach anyone with an interest to learn and do so on a regular basis.

Scott M

Instruments:

I'm a skilled musician who has a deep passion for developing aspiring students. I've taught guitar for 8 years now and have had many students. I earned a degree in Music Composition from Azusa Pacific University in 2006. I love what I do and devote all of my energy towards music. I know that I can help you achieve your musical goals because I remember what it was like to start from the beginning.  Maybe you're not starting from the beginning but have reached a plateau in your playing and wish to reach the next level. There is a wealth of information available today but without a sequential approach, you will encounter unnecessary frustration and a lack of real improvement. With the right tools, the learning process can be enjoyable and fun. Whether your looking to become a speed demon, or just learn a few chords, I can help you implement strategies that will put you on the fast track to excelling in your desired field. I teach all styles and have a particular passion for film, video game music, metal, rock, classical and jazz music. Areas of focus include: -Chords (power chord extensions, inversions, altered dominants)  -Scales (modes, harmonic and melodic minor, diminished and whole tone) -Arpeggios (sweeping patterns, alternate picking through arpeggios) -Jazz Soloing (learning to navigate through complex chord progressions)  -Ear Training (learning to identify chords and scales by ear) -Music Theory ( spelling chords and scales and knowing how to use them)  -Speed and Accuracy ( how to get your playing to sound clean and fast)  -Composition and Songwriting ( Various compositional techniques and song writing approaches)

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!  

Jonathan S

Instruments:

I have been playing music in Los Angeles for 15 years and been playing bass for 20 years. I am a graduate of Musicians Institute in Hollywood and have played in many different types of bands and done many different types of studio sessions. I have toured all over the United States and Canada. I always learn something new from music every day and every time I think it can't get better, it always does :)

Vincent C

Instruments:

I am a Los Angeles music teacher certified with a B.S. in Education. With me, you will not only learn to play your instrument but I will also teach you everything you need to know to be successful in today's competitive music industry. I play and teach several instruments. While I can come to your home, I prefer to teach in my professional recording studio in a safe commercial location where we have access to lots of instruments and recording gear to help you with your musical development. I use a combination of traditional teaching methods combined with cutting edge recording and software tools. I can teach you how to use today's modern software to help you practice, learn and formulate your own musical concepts. It's super cool and lots of fun.

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.
Need to save time because of your busy schedule? Why not try in-home guitar lessons. A Musika teacher can travel to your home and provide excellent quality instruction in the comfort and convenience of your own home.
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.
For adults who are looking to learn to play the guitar, we recommend that they do so with some clear goals in mind. Maybe you want to learn to play some of your favorite songs, join a band or write your own music? Whatever the aim, our experienced teachers can help unlock the skills necessary to make those goals a reality. It can take time - often months - to develop the techniques and co-ordination required to play the guitar to a competent level. The most effective way to progress with your playing to is take regular lessons and practice often.
Students can start as young as age 6 with a half size classical guitar (nylon strings), by playing simple songs on the top strings. Most students are able to form chords by age 7 or 8, and begin learning how to play and sing along with their favorite songs. Older students will graduate to being able to handle a full size guitar around ages 10-12, which is when many students become interested in learning rock guitar and want to get an electric.
