I’ll make certain you're working with the right guitar for you and your size, style etc.. I'll lower the action if the strings are too far from the neck, which is the case 99.9% of the time with nearly all guitars (making it hard to fret a note or barre.) We can even spend 20 min of the lesson changing the strings to one's more well-suited and this will be a necessary skill you will learn.
You will be given a step-by-step approach to learning the instrument as a whole, yet in a slow, considerate to your learning pace-fashion..You'll get into it.
I'll be giving you different warm-ups and exercises which induce strength & flexibility & knowledge & technique.
Learning songs or working on developing your own song ideas
Scales, modes, shapes and patterns and how to use them to improvise
How to play with soul and not sound sterile or mechanical.

Every guitarist must know the blues, It's the simplest yet often hardest genres to play! I’ll break it down for you!

Kimi (Viola is preferred)
The first lesson went great and though there was a lot to learn, she explained everything and was clear about her expectations.
Hanna
Ilana is my first instructor, and I can already tell I made the right choice. First lesson, I told her what I felt my biggest weaknesses are, and she immediately began helping me. She was very considerate and emphasized her concern about pushing me too far, but I told her to trust me in return to tell her if I had hit a limit, and I felt very heard in that moment. The sort of open and safe communication she has provided makes me feel at ease during our lessons and thus makes it easier for me to push past any limits I've so far come across. Honestly after each lesson, whenever anything happens in my newly found VA world, the first thing I think is: "I can't wait to tell Ilana!"
Alex and Alahna
Ilana was very informative, friendly, and helpful. It's hard to find someone that truly has these qualities, but Ilana has them and is great. She was very informative on breath control which is a major thing to know. Looking forward to more lessons with Ilana and to continue improving.

"My experience as an electric guitar student of Justin's is nothing short of perfect for what I was looking for. Justin has a great studio with everything you'd need and is very focused on ensuring he's helping me learn what I want, not some standard, boring, antiquated way of teaching. He's got a TON of accomplishments under his belt (music and otherwise, he is also an actor!) from which to draw experience from and share with students. Very professional, personable and contemporary - IMO a perfect teacher and I'd recommend him to anyone looking for lessons!"

"I've been taking boogie woogie piano lessons with Edwin for a couple of years now. I have little talent but Edwin has always been patient and encouraging. He is an excellent musician and seems to be able to figure out the most obscure sequences from recordings which is important because a lot of this stuff isn't written down. Plus he's willing to take an unconventional approach as normal teaching methods don't seem to work on me. I highly recommend him."

"I am an adult learner who started working with Hallie January 8. Hallie is an excellent instructor. She has a style of instructing that is very patient and nurturing. It is very clear that she is a strong believer in positive reinforcement over negative reinforcement. She is very open to questions and when you do not understand something, will try to find alternative ways of explaining the concept, rather than simply repeating what she has already said. I could definitely see that she would be very good working with children. I leave every lesson with Hallie in a very positive place wanting to immediately go home and practice. I feel very fortunate that I have discovered Hallie and look forward to working with her for years to come."
