Featured Torrance Guitar Teachers

Andrew B

Instruments:

I am passionate about introducing music to young students as well as opening new doors to more experienced players. After studying Piano Performance at Biola University I went on the road as the guitar player for the rock band Fastball. I spent the next 12 years touring and recording in bands, honing my craft as a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and producer. In addition to teaching piano and guitar I now compose for television and film out of my home studio in North Hollywood, CA.

Barry has evolved into a highly sought after performer and teacher.  His resume includes tours with the Pointer Sisters, Angela Bofill, Willie Bobo, John Klemmer, Engelbert Humperdink and more. He has collaborated with renowned artists around the world and has been heard on many film soundracks and has produced his own albums and been featured on the albums of other artists.

David I

Instruments:

I have been in the music business and teaching guitar for over ten years. I am equally qualified to teach children, adults and everyone in between! With over ten years of experience working in youth music programs I have learned a variety of games and fun activities that are particularly effective in engaging young learners. My main goal with children is to get them hooked on music so they'll turn it into a life long pursuit. I am a warm, sincere person and I enjoy developing a relationship with each one of my students. I am very patient yet I expect nothing less than excellence of myself and my students.

Matthew I

Instruments:

I have been playing guitar for 14 years and teaching for 7 years.  I started taking private guitar lessons as a teenager for several years and played in my High School Jazz Band along with other original rock bands. While in high school, I was able to study with popular Chicago rock guitarist Kevin M. Buck where I first learned music theory, which inspired me to be more studious with the guitar. I studied classical guitar in college and received an Associate of Arts Degree in music from Lane C.C. in Eugene Oregon. I have performed in rock/modern bands for 12 years as an electric guitarist and I'm also currently performing as solo acoustic guitarist.

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.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

A half size (or three-quarter size) acoustic guitar is highly recommended for younger students. For older students, an electric guitar may be suitable, provided they can hold it correctly and with comfort. A good student model guitar can be obtained brand new for about $150 to $200. Electric guitar players will also need an amplifier as well as guitar cables, which will cost extra. Generally speaking, the higher the quality of the instrument, the easier it is to play. The ease of which an instrument plays is particularly important for young learners, as they will take to it quicker and enjoy their playing and practice more.
Musika deals primarily with home lessons for students. The location is the only difference between our in-home lessons and our studio lessons. As they do not have to travel to their lessons, home guitar lessons can be highly convenient for those parents and students with a busy schedule. For younger students in particular, having guitar lessons in the comfort of their own home can be of great benefit. They will feel more safe and relaxed in familiar surroundings, allowing them to focus on learning and enjoying playing the guitar.
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.
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. At Musika, our experienced teachers can help you to achieve your guitar playing goals, whether you are a novice, intermediate or advanced level player. It takes time, dedication and patience to acquire the co-ordination, techniques and skills necessary to meet your aims. Those who commit to taking regular lessons and daily practice will see the fastest progression in their guitar playing abilities.
Students can start their guitar lessons as young as 6 years of age. A half sized classical guitar will be easier to hold for young students, and nylon strings are softer on the fingers than steel strings. By the age of 7 or 8, most students are able to start forming chords, and can learn to play and sing along to their favorite songs. Often students will progress onto using a full size guitar by the ages of 10-12. During these years, students usually develop a taste for rock music and will want to learn the electric guitar.
