Hello my name is Seth W. I have been playing, performing and teaching guitar for 20 years. I'm a 2011 graduate of Musicians Institute's Guitar Program in Hollywood, CA. I hold an Associate of Arts Degree in Guitar Performance.
Over the years I have taught a wide variety of students as far as age, skill level and interests/styles are concerned. Popular songs, ear training, theory, sight reading and tablature, knowledge of equipment, band and performance related topics and much other guitar and music related information are just some of the things I can teach you. Most of my students have requested to learn songs they like. I am your guy for this - I've played in many bands and learned literally hundreds of songs. Students are amazed at my ability to play songs I've only heard for the first time moments before. Bring your ipod, phone, mp3 player or music playing device to the lessons and you will be rocking on your favorite songs in no time!
I give each student what they want - whether it is to learn Black Sabbath or Metallica riffs, play Guns N' Roses solos, learn to strum the chords for Brown Eyed Girl, write your own songs, or to perfect that technique that's been giving you fits, I can get you there in a reasonable time with the proper tools and guidance. However, I also balance giving the students what they want with giving them what they need - certain elements of the guitar and music aren't realistically achievable without the proper steps taken to get where you want to be.
I also interject a fair amount of humor into the lessons. I make them as enjoyable as possible and create a fun learning environment. I also learn from the students, there are many things I would never have thought of or tried if it weren't for the students' take on the material or just their thirst for knowledge. It has made me a much better teacher and it enhances the experience for both of us.
I love teaching because I get to do what I love and earn a living from it but also because I never stop learning about my passion, music and guitar - and get to meet a wide variety of wonderful and interesting people in the process. I look forward to being your teacher and learning with you! Hello my name is Seth W. I have been playing, performing and teaching guitar for 20 years.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I completed extensive ear training courses at Musicians Institute as a student from 2009-2011. I've learned hundreds of songs by ear - melodies, chords, progressions, solos, phrases, you name it.
