Los Feliz Guitar Lessons


Hello Everyone! My name is Joe and I know that selecting a teacher can sometimes be an intimidating experience especially when considering that the success of one-on-one lessons relies as much or more on the relationship between the teacher and student as it does the information itself. Due to this I want to let you know that at Los Feliz Guitar Lessons I have been teaching professionally for over 30 years and have successfully taught students ranging from ages 4 to 70 how to play great guitar!

I’m as happy teaching absolute beginners as I am helping out fellow working professionals and deeply enjoy connecting with new students both young and old(er). Serving all of Los Angeles but specifically the neighborhoods of Los Feliz, Silver Lake, Echo Park and East Hollywood. C’mon in and lets play!

I strive to meet each student exactly where they are at in life, preferring to develop a supportive relationship that meets the individual needs of each student rather than running them through a preformed script of lessons. I enjoy learning what most excites and motivates you so I can best tailor the lessons to maximize both your learning as well as your enjoyment!

I teach:

Beginning guitar lessons

Intermediate guitar lessons

Advanced guitar lessons

..And we have a ton of fun doing it!

As far as the material we will cover, the possibilities are practically endless; I am as psyched teaching you how to play your favorite Punk or Metal songs as I am working on reading notation and chord charts, coaching you through writing your first song or helping you to navigate the ii-V-I’s in “Giant Steps”.

I can teach you how to convincingly play Classic Rock, Funk, Metal, Djent, Alternative, Country, Blues, Jazz and Acoustic styles. We can also work on reading music, learning music theory, learn to “play by ear”improvise solos in any style and/or delve into the craft of songwriting and composition

To discuss your situation further, please give Los Feliz Guitar Lessons a call or send me an email so we can schedule your first lesson 100% free. From there we can have a relaxed chat about what you are looking to achieve with your lessons and your playing. It’ll be fun! I promise!


  Joe is awesome! So patient and such an incredible teacher. I came to him knowing zero about playing guitar and the amount that I have learned over the course of a year is pretty incredible. I've recommended at least 3 people to him and they all love him. He makes it so fun. Highly highly recommend.

  I purchased lessons for my husband and Joe was so professional and easy to work with. It was such a meaningful gift, wonderful lessons, and we could tell Joe had a true passion for his art and sharing it with others. Highly recommend to any age/level!

  I can't recommend Joe enough! He was my first ever guitar teacher, and I can't imagine someone else better suited. His experience as both a teacher and performer have been invaluable to pass along to the learner. Playing guitar was something I had always wanted to do but thought I would be terrible at it. Joe encouraged me and gave me the confidence to want to keep going. He was patient with me as a new learner, and I enjoyed the process so much, I look forward to the continued education!
