About Rene

Knowing at the age of 5 that music was my life, by being brought up surrounded by praise music and gospel, my early exposure to music helped me to find every Instrument and style just my thing! I wanted to play everything and learn all aspects of music. I started with singing in the children's choir

After 20 years of playing and a BA in Music, I know how to break down the guitar and teach it to anyone willing to learn. I take the 80/20 approach to learning guitar and will get you up and playing in no time. If you are tired of trying to figure out how to learn guitar online or you feel stuck at your current level, then I can show you the most effective and efficient way to get your playing to the next level. Lessons will teach you the following:

* songs you actually want to play
* how to read music and guitar tablature
* music theory tailored to suit your needs
* composition and improvisation
* performance practices and music history
* how to play solo pieces and jam with your friends

About Justin

Like most guitarists, I had always wanted to play the guitar as a little kid. Luckily, my parents finally caved to the request (ok ok, incessant begging) and I began my guitar journey at the age of 11. After now 20 years of playing and 12 years of teaching, I am excited to share my experience and th

Justin is teaching me music just not how to play the ukulele. Really appreciate his individual approach which incorporates my learning style. When needed, Justin picks up when I need a change of strategy. I am a very very beginner and have learned so much so far.

I "shopped around" for a great teacher on this site.

For many new lesson takers, not only do you have no clue about your instrument, you aren't even sure what makes a great teacher!

So here are some things to look out for in a first lesson:

Your teacher should be personable and interested in your musical experience and taste. Ask them what they like! You might hear something you want to learn.

If you mention some level of experience, they will ask you to play something you either know or have been working on. This is important!

Then, preferably, they will ask why you have chosen your instrument and what you want to be able to do with it (i.e. do you want to play in a band, or just play your favorite songs for your family gatherings).

All of this allows you to relax and not worry too much about performing too much during your first lesson.

More importantly, it gives the instructor a clear path on how to work with YOU. The more they know about your current level, the better your experience and learning progress will be.

For absolute beginners, I would hope that they have a simple melody for you to learn right then and there by watching and playing with them.

Well, Justin knocked it out of the park! And then some.

He showed that he is willing to customize teaching to your style, as well.

I learn by ear, so he knew how to use that as an advantage for learning the fretboard and notes. Instead of giving me a paper with chords on it, he challenged me to use my knowledge and play around more thoughtfully to figure out what the names are for notes and chords I'm already playing.

Please, don't hesitate to work with Justin. The price is beyond fair! Especially since other teachers in the same price ranges are between 2-4 stars.

Thanks, Justin!

Private Classical Guitar Teacher

My own former guitar teacher once told me, "Guitar is one of the easiest instruments to play, but the most difficult to master." Now that I teach guitar including theory, I understand exactly what he meant.

We will start with finger-strengthening exercises while learning basic music fundamentals; then on to sight reading, string by string, note by note; we will learn to group notes together (chords) a bit later (after you have mastered the rest and free strokes.

Be prepared to purchase Hal Leonard's Classical Guitar Course (or Finger-Style Guitar (I get 30% off retail), and/or A Modern Approach to Classical Guitar (including Easy Classical Guitar Duets - both of these can be bought on Amazon). Other supplies: metronome/tuner, picks, and a classical-nylon stringed guitar of course.

Music contains two things: pitch and rhythm, so using a metronome right from the beginning will help you learn rhythm if you have problems in that area (many students do). We will do ...

My daughter has been under the wonderful care of Ms. Taylor for over 2 years now and she has learned and grown tremendously under her care. From not knowing how to read notes or any finger placements, to reading notes and switching things up ( different tempos) while playing the piano on her own.

Ms. Taylor pays attention to detail and is very easy going that makes it easy for my daughter to learn. She is very compassionate. She has also taught her breathing techniques along with voice training. She keeps her grounded and motivated. My daughter has a passion for music and is in the best possible hands. She is very flexible and accommodating!

Thank you so much for everything you do to help her flourish!!

We LOVE and APPRECIATE YOU!!

Private Classical Guitar Teacher

When I was a child my father would play the piano while my mother would cook us dinner. Both of my parents shared with us five children this love for music. My inspiration came from seeing Van Halen in concert in 1982 at the Cow Palace in San Francisco , and that was it. I became a teacher to share that inspiration with others. I've been studying guitar for forty years now and have a knowledge of many styles. I've been inspired by many genres of music, from the 1960's to the present ,not to mention my interest in classical, The Beatles and Chuck Berry.

About Margaret

I love teaching music and want to help you achieve your goals whatever they may be . My teaching style could be described as learning with enthusiasm and curiosity. We will study academic and free form style.

I met Margaret S. as a 50-something man picking up guitar for the first time. Margaret showed great patience walking me through the basics needed by a complete beginner. Six years later I’m still playing and learning, and I owe it all to the inspiration Margaret Instilled in me.
One thing that sets Margaret apart from other teachers I’ve met is her ability to inspire children. She connects with kids easily and she makes them want to learn and practice. I highly recommend her.

"Justin is an excellent teacher!! He is a master guitarist, always punctual, very courteous and gives 100% to my lesson. I am learning classical guitar and jazz guitar with him and I am delighted with the progress I've made in just a few months. I am playing beautiful songs and before his lessons I could not play any classical guitar songs at all. Justin tailors the lessons to help me learn the songs I am excited about learning to play. I most highly recommend him as a teacher for any style guitar. Amazingly he also teaches ukulele and mandolin too! He has a degree from Cal Poly in music and guitar and has over 20 years teaching experience. If you really want to learn how to play guitar easily and quickly, take lessons with him!"

"Nothing but good things to say about Brendon. Aside from his insane talent as a composer and musician, he was phenom with our son Max. A few thoughts below...

We knew Brendon was the right person to help our son Max on day one with TakeLessons, when we wrote to 4 or 5 potential instructors. The other folks wrote back and just said 'sure, I'm here, happy to help'. But Brendon wrote back with thoughts about the pieces Max needed to learn for his audition, a rough outline of a plan, and shared enough about himself that we knew he had truly 'heard' what we needed were looking for. That kind of thoughtfulness is unique.

Brendon is great with kids, and created instant rapport with Max over the video lessons. Brendon will always spend a little extra time than budgeted, which is appreciated. And his scheduling was flexible which always helps with us busy families. We did a few in person lessons and Max came away inspired - for classical guitar but also for music in general. Max's skills grew throughout, and he never resisted practicing; he looked forward to the lessons and the chance to talk about some guitar-related thing with Brendon.

Brendon isn't a big disciplinarian so after a few weeks I had a little chat with Max about what it means to respect your teacher, even if they seem young and cool and are on video. That's something I think parents need to monitor a little.

Recommended w/o any hesitation. If you have Brendon in mind you're headed in the right direction for sure. -MR"
