    My goal as a teacher is to provide an in depth understanding of the instrument to my students. Whether we are learning technique specific to the instrument or general musical concepts, it is important to me that I take the time to ensure that my students not only learn how to do something, but also the reasons why we are learning a specific concept or technique.

    Hi! My name is Brandon, and I'd love to give you guitar lessons! Over the past year, I have acquired a passion for teaching that spawned when I was just showing some family members a few pointers here and there. I realized that over the course of my musical life, I have kept all of the knowledge I gained from all of my musical experiences mostly to myself. I realized how fulfilling it would be to pass on that knowledge! I studied jazz at the New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts (NOCCA). I also studied for one year at the University of New Orleans (UNO), where I studied with the j

    Marc is an incredibly skilled musician. He can play blues, acoustic folk/rock, classical, and jazz with the best of them. But as a teacher, that is not enough. You have to have the expertise plus the unique skills necessary to pass along your knowledge. You can’t teach someone based on what you know now; you have to remember how you learned what you know now. He has come to learn the best ways to teach someone to play and to express their musicality, without thinking about it.  You will not find a better guitar teacher than Marc Dobriner.
