  • Tristan Griffith

    Samuel Ojalvo is an excellent musician and most importantly, he’s a great guy. He’s easy to work with and he’s a fantastic teacher. Sam’s passion for music is a constant driving force in his life and one can’t help being inspired to dive right in. Sam breaks down complex processes into easily understandable parts and has a knack for creating relatable analogies to explain new concepts. Sam’s wealth of knowledge and experience combined with his laid back attitude makes him the perfect teacher for any player, no matter the style or playing level.

  • Greg Grant

    Sam is very knowledgeable and passionate about guitar, and it shows in the way that he teaches. He is very caring and patient with his students, but still has zeal for technique and fundamentals. He’s a very relaxed and calming presence, so you won’t feel as if he’s overbearing or pressuring you into proficiency. I highly recommend Sam I learned so much from him.

  • Yon

    I had my first ever guitar lesson with Sam. He was really patient with me and very encouraging when I did something right. What I liked best was that he was easily able to identify if/when I was doing something wrong and gave me tips on how I could fix it. If you’re a beginner I highly recommend contacting Sam for your first lesson!

  • Marlena Abramowitz

    Sam is professional and committed to constantly improving his own practice as a guitarist as well as sharing his knowledge and expertise with others. He is passionate about music and helping people find their passion for guitar. Technically, he is an incredible guitar player (one of the best I know) and highly qualified for giving lessons to people of all ages and levels of experience.
