Private Guitar Teacher

I've played all my life and have my own band. I started teaching guitar in 2008. I've worked with hundreds of students taking beginners to advanced level of playing. I offer lessons from 2 studios located in Tulsa and Broken Arrow. I teach from a variety of books and programs to help students become well rounded musicians. As for equipment, I use Marshall, Fender, and Line 6 amps, Ibanez and Gibson guitars, Guitar Pro for creating lessons, Garage Band for recording, and have a large collection of guitar effects pedals.
On average within 2 - 3 months a beginning student will be reading, counting, and playing songs.
My goal is to keep my students interested and happy while making sure they develop the proper musical foundation/knowledge that will allow them grow, overcome their musical walls, and become the musician they desire to be.
My philosophy is to teach students to be smart musicians. It does you no good if you can play a song but don't know what you are actually doing. So,

About Christian

Music is my passion. I've been playing music since I was a child but didn't get serious with it until I was 14, that's when I got my first electric guitar. So, from then on I've been playing and studying music for over 16 years. I play and teach guitar, piano, drums, and bass guitar. Aside from taki

I enjoyed learning from Christian today. I am 70 years old and did not feel out of place. He made me comfortable and he is very knowledgeable about how to go about teaching. He was very polite and patient with me and was able to go over things and explain professionally in a manner that did not insult my intelligence. He seems dedicated to teaching and does it very well .
I highly recommend this man to anyone that wants to learn how to play the Piano.
Wade J.
Christian has been top-notch in every way I could hope for. His communication prior to and after the lesson has been stellar, taking time to prep me then follow up with thorough, well written tips and details. (It's clear that he values the student's time as much as his own, and seeks to make the experience individualized and worthwhile for those he teaches.) The lesson itself was spot-on, being well balanced in both fun and degree of challenge. Feel very fortunate to have found him!
Cayden
Christian easily connects with my teenage son. He is professional while at the same time relaxed and easy-going. He stresses the importance of learning the basics but there is no high pressure. He strives to teach music that is interesting to my son and that challenges him. He does a great job of explaining things. We are happy we chose Christian as our teacher.

For the beginner we start learning immediately, by choosing what guitar and why. The different methods of sitting with the guitar, as well as standing.We then go over tuning your instrument, these things make us more familiar with the instrument. We then learn new songs by playing either chords (harmony) or melodic lines, (melodies or scales). The beginner will also learn to use "proper technique" which includes playing on fingertips, thumb placement for the fretting hand and other approaches. The picking hand techniques include and are not limited to finger picking, or the use of the plectrum.

For intermediate player it's all about theory and practice. This level of student will learn scale and chordal theory, and apply them to existing songs as well as learning the new songs with the theory in mind. More advanced picking techniques and the ability to know when to use what picking approach when reading the the rhythm figures on the staff. Knowledge of song composition is ...

- Mr Mandel is the most patient instructor, which is good since he's dealing with an 8 year old girl who's not sure she even wants to play an instrument. Somehow, he manages to instruct and motivate her even when she'd rather be playing computer games.
- I also take lessons from him- I've got a music background but had no previous experience with the guitar before and Mr Mandel was able to adapt his teaching style to accommodate that nicely.
-I highly recommend him!
Claire
I am an adult who began guitar as an adult and I have taken lessons with Mandel for nearly a year. He is the single best music instructor I have ever had. He is incredibly knowledgeable and versatile, welcomes questions, and will take time to explain anything even if it interferes with his planned lesson. He is encouraging and incredibly professional. I leave every lesson ready to try again and encouraged to keep practicing. I highly recommend him as a guitar and music theory instructor.
Patrick
Mandel is an excellent guitar teacher, and is very professional at his craft. He shows patience and works with you effectively throughout every 30 minute session! Thumbs up!

Each lesson is tailored to fit each individual student. We will cover genres of music that is of interest to you, using music you enjoy most so learning the guitar will be fun. Even if you have experience playing guitar, I will be able to show you alternative strum patterns, picking patterns, useful techniques, tricks and short-cuts to make playing easier. This applies to whether you are learning acoustic, classical or electric guitar. I have a blast teaching and my students have fun learning!

As with any instrument or art, you have to start somewhere and put work into. There are no shortcuts. However, a good instructor can quickly recognize what you wish to learn, zone in on those areas, and most importantly allow you the desire to keep play more. This type of guidance is the “shortcut”. For myself, I have 18+ years playing electric/acoustic guitar I have also attended Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA playing with other musicians and learning from the best instructors.

Beginner level: we have to start with positioning of you fret and pick hand. You can change a bit of this up later. To start, I might hear you play something: one note, a melody, or a riff just to see where you’re at. Starting from scratch? That’s perfectly fine.

We will work on two aspects: working towards playing single note melodies and strumming/learning basic chords. I would encourage learning the latter as pretty much all contemporary songs can be accompanied by rhythm guitar. Changing ...

We are so thankful we found Patrick! Patrick is a very effective teacher who’s able to relate and motivate students.
