Hello, Patrick Montoya here and I'm your guitar teacher. Here is a little background on myself and LearnGuitare's philosophy:
I'm a fun teacher! I've been teaching guitar to all ages and experience levels for over 30 years...group as well as private.
While I make the lessons fun, I also make them very informative and educational. I am serious and passionate about teaching and I make sure that my students walk away from each lesson saying, "Wow, that was a cool lesson!"
I have been teaching group and private lessons for about 30 years now. I've been a contract teacher for The City Of Chino Hills for over 10 years, and have also taught for the cities of Chino, Diamond Bar and Walnut.
I started LearnGuitare around 2006 and teach group and private lessons at its studio in Chino, CA.
I have performed since the late 70s in many bands and have met and played with a lot of great musicians. In the 80s, we were part of the scene that rocked the Sunset Strip and all over Southern California. Today, I perform with my wife in our Pat Benatar tribute band, HeartBreaker which was founded in 1999. We have performed many concerts since then, and have performed in front of thousands! We have performed in Japan for our naval troops, Canada, Arizona, Las Vegas as well as many California Casinos, Concerts In The Park and other venues.
LearnGuitare is my passion and I look forward to working you and to help you reach your musical goals!
First step would be to find the student's interests and goals. Do they have experience playing? Do they read standard notation? Do they know a few chords?
A lot of questions are asked and then a good lesson program to fit their needs would be in order.
I've been playing guitar since 1974 and have taught since 1980. I started LearnGuitare in 2006 and currently am a contracted teacher for the City Of Chino Hills CA Recreation Division since 2002.
I've studied music theory and business management at Mt. San Antonio College and continue my studies privately.
We meet once a week and tuition is paid on a month to month basis, based on the number of lesson days in a particular month.
30 minute lessons are $27
45 minute lessons are $40
60 minute lessons are $54
I started in my high school days with people I knew who wanted to learn to play. They had seen me play and perform and wanted me to teach them.
I taught at their homes and eventually taught in a few local music stores.
After a while, I got my own studio and work from there.
All kinds...all ages and skill levels.
Young beginners , ages 5-8, kids 9-12, teens 13 and up. Adults of all ages.
Give me a call, set up a trial lesson and let's talk!
What are my goals? What do I want to do with the instrument?
