My goal is to bring quality guitar instruction to people in their own homes.
In just a short time, Willie helped me make significant progress on the classical guitar, and I am constantly amazed at how much I have learned ... His teaching approach begins with understanding the student's current level and then he develops from there. I highly recommend Willie to anyone looking to learn classical guitar."
— Abhishek, student
"...he is patient, passionate, and has excellent communication skills. As a musician, he is an excellent guitar and lute player, as well as an expert in music theory. I would highly recommend him as a music teacher and I hope to work with him again in the future!"
— Adrianne, Hollywood Bowl Orchestra violinist, violin teacher
"He was very lovely to work with; courteous, reliable, understanding, and communicative. His playing was absolutely gorgeous ... I would be happy to work with him again."
-- Lisa, concert series programmer
Thanks to improving technologies, remote teaching can now be just as good as in-person lessons. Read more about my studio policies here and about my unique, four-camera remote teaching set-up here.
I teach a flexible approach to technique and musicality that emphasises the fundamentals while catering to each student's unique musical and physical needs.
Participation is seamless. Students don't need any special technology for remote lessons: a regular computer, tablet, or smartphone will do.
I teach beginning to advanced guitar students. I also teach lute and music theory lessons on a case-by-case basis. My approach is suitable for students age 5-6 through adults, and I customize my approach to meet students' individual needs. Let's set up a complimentary consultation to get started!
