Bio

Hey, my name is Salem. Currently living in Hollywood, LA, offering guitar lessons. I come from a rock/metal background generally; but have also been through different systems of 'formal' study along the journey in the realm of guitar performance, all of which have exposed me to numerous musicians, diverse musical approaches and ideas of music. The academic qualifications include a Diploma and Higher Diploma in the UK, (Guitar Institute, Academy of Contemporary Music respectively) and an MFA...

Hey, my name is Salem. Currently living in Hollywood, LA, offering guitar lessons. I come from a rock/metal background generally; but have also been through different systems of 'formal' study along the journey in the realm of guitar performance, all of which have exposed me to numerous musicians, diverse musical approaches and ideas of music. The academic qualifications include a Diploma and Higher Diploma in the UK, (Guitar Institute, Academy of Contemporary Music respectively) and an MFA from the California Institute of the Arts(CalArts) just recently. So my reason for the specification of genre above is that this is more of a perspective from which I came from (or feel at 'home' with).

Note: I have (sadly) not trained for Classical guitar or Flamenco, and therefore cannot offer these areas!

Most recently I have been playing with LA based group.

I enjoy teaching a great deal and prefer to tailor the lessons to the student's goals, as well as a few sprinklings of regulated practice ideas. Ear training is encouraged through transcription of music relevant to the student which can expand into analysis if desired; I like to combine improvisation with material and diagrams can be made if it is helpful to internalize information.
