I graduated Berklee College of Music (summa cum laude) - guitar performance. During my studies at Berklee every semester I earned placement at Dean's List and 10 March 2016 I also received John LaPorta Award for outstanding achievement in my major.
I base my lessons on the individual student. If the student wants to know minimal music theory to get by or none at all;I don't force them to learn the theory. Same thing goes for reading music, it is a great skill to have but if the student just wants to learn how to play, that's what I teach them.
As a music instructor, my emphasis for each student is learn all aspects of musicianship as a guitarist. Lessons include music theory within the fretboard, developing proper hand dexterity, exposure to various playing styles, rhythm studies (Kodaly) Patient, caring, motivating, and encouraging! Guitar teacher, instructor, and coach.
I give lessons to aspiring acoustic guitarists of all ages. Your lessons will be tailored to your interests. You can bring me songs, genres, and techniques that you would like to master, and I will help you learn what you desire to learn.
My lessons are focused solely on the goals and aspirations of my students. I build curriculums that are unique to each individual student in order to help them achieve these goals. In our lessons, we will cover all the areas that are essential to one's development as a musician including; music theory, ear training, rhythmic analysis, and technique.
As an experienced guitar instructor, I endeavor to make guitar lessons fun, practical and productive!!! Whether you’re a beginner, intermediate, advanced, a musically frustrated novice or even a professional level musician needing to deepen their musical knowledge, I can help you! I teach on both electric and acoustic guitar.
My teaching method begins with basic chords and rhythm, moving into scales and sight reading later on. We will then work through different genres and styles of music in order to further the student's understanding of the differences between these styles.
I like to see my students develop a passion for music. I know many people want to get better at music but has absolutely no idea where to start. I specialize in teaching you how to be good enough to eventually start teaching yourself how to play the guitar. I am able to teach all genre of music.
I teach all skill levels and ages, so my approach to each student is very structured but tailored to the students skill level and individual interests. I have written two guitar method books "(Foundations for Guitar" and "Expanded Blues Guitar") and I publish a weekly video lesson blog via YouTube and my own website MarkWein.com.
Part of why it is fun to learn guitar with a private instructor, is that you can learn whatever you want to learn at any given time.
My teaching method is completely student-centered. I teach each individual student what and how they would like to play. I use my various knowledge and experience of music and formulate a lesson plan that suits the student's particular goals, learning style, and personality.
I have taught privately and through music schools for several years and have taught students of all ages and levels. I believe that everyone is capable of learning at least the basics of music to accomplish what they want from musical instruction.
My role as a teacher is to supply my students with the right skill set to pursue their own creativity. With music, there is no set solution to any given problem. That is why I enjoy being very flexible with my students. Any piece of repertoire can be played and interpreted in a variety of ways. I strive for originality and encourage my students to do the same with any piece of music they play.
I believe that the best way to teach is by student engaged and motivated. I teach my students the music they want to learn while teaching them other aspects of music in parallel. I would usually teach a student a song and then teach him the major scale and make him connect the theoretical content to the music.
I cater to what my student's interests are and am happy to take suggestions for material they'd like to learn in lessons. At the same time, I feel it's my responsibility to draw from my background as a music professional and show the student material they may be unaware of.
My lessons are completely student focused. I will teach you whatever it is you want to learn on the guitar, and I will also teach you the "why" of certain techniques you are learning. At the first lesson I will evaluate your goals and make a game plan to get you there. Over the first few lessons, I will observe your learning style, and adjust my teaching style to match.
I offer group and private lessons in all genres to all skill levels. I have curated my curriculum with a multi-faceted approach, which includes technical prowess, performance, music theory, and music history. The main focus of my lessons is to instill the idea that my students are musicians first and foremost. Being a "guitarist" is secondary.
I am a graduate of Berklee College of Music who teaches guitar lessons tailored to the needs of each individual student. I create lesson plans based on the students interests, and take all the necessary steps to help every student achieve their goals.
I enjoy focusing on things that challenge my students, so that they can grow beyond what they thought was possible. I am willing to teach any level and any age. Playing the guitar is a joy beyond any other, I intend to spread that joy.
I use music theory as a foundation for teaching all styles from Bach to Rock. My system really helps beginners learn more quickly.
I find that 1 on 1 teaching or very small group teaching works better. Then that allows me to really learn what each students strengths and weaknesses are. From that I can try to develop a way of learning that works for them.
I tailor my lessons to the interests of the individual student. I encourage sight reading, but do not require it to get started and often find a mix of traditional notation and tabs tends to get better results and keeps students interested.
I am a true believer in personalizing the lesson to the students needs. Learning guitar is meant to be a fun, challenging experience whether you are a beginner or a veteran. I offer an upbeat, exciting lesson that will always continue to expand and grow your knowledge base.

I am a vocalist, guitarist, composer, and music historian who loves to work with new material. I am looking for all types of students, and am happy to work with topics in which the student is interested. I am also comfortable providing suggestions for music and language projects, which typically incorporate history and vocal music into an eclectic approach to the guitar.
Learning an instrument can be intimidating, but it can be a lot easier with the right guidance. I teach beginner to intermediate students of all ages and can help you improve your guitar skills by taking gradual steps towards larger and more-advanced challenges.
I have a collection of song works and techniques in plenty music genres that will help the students to develop a repertoire in the area that they are interested in. These collection of work is divided in three different levels as: Beginner, Intermediate and advance.
My main teaching method revolves around LISTENING to music first -- in order to identify what style of blues + jazz guitar you love most. From there, I will focus on teaching you to play that style. Next, we move forward -- making sure you are "on target" and learning to play music you REALLY want to play.
I always try to help you achieve the goals that you have but I also try to point you towards the new direction, something that maybe you haven't even thought about yet but it will be helpful for you in the future. I also concentrate on a many aspects of music: reading skills, arranging, general music education (listening and discovering new music), ear-training, theory if wanted.
I utilize the same techniques learned growing up taking lessons at the Fort Washington School of Rock and my experience working with children of all ages and skill level. I teach to the level of my students, always making it fun and with purpose.

Perfect! Javier is an excellent teacher and goes the extra mile to ensure that I am understanding and practicing the right rhythm of each new part of the song I am learning. Highly recommended.
