Guitar Lessons Orange County

"We couldn't be happier with the progress our kids have made! Joey helped motivate them and they absolutely love the lessons!" 

"I've taken lessons from several teachers in OC. Joey was more knowledgeable than any of them!" 

"We had tried a couple of teachers before we found Joey. He was the only teacher who seemed to really connect with our kids...."  

"I found Joey to be extremely knowledgeable, patient, easy going, and overall a very effective teacher..."

"My son, Alex, really loves the lessons! It is so neat to see him playing piano all the time instead of playing video games!"

"We've had our kids enrolled for over a year now and have seen them make amazing progress..." 

"When I started lessons I had some experience but no formal training. The lessons are very fun and I am learning a lot of things including technique and theory that I would never have learned on my own. Joey is an excellent teacher and I'm lucky to have found him!"


My teaching philosophy is based in the belief that learning music should be fun and exciting! I always encourage my students to pursue the kind of music that they find most appealing. Rather than using the same curriculum and method book, I work with each of my students to develop a unique curriculum centered around their individual interests and goals. I enjoy working with students of all ages and skill levels!

My specialties include:

  • Guitar and piano instruction (acoustic and electric)
  • All genres of music including rock, blues, jazz, classical, and pop
  • Improvisation that incorporates scales, modes, and arpeggios
  • Songwriting, composition, and arranging
  • Theory (chord structure, melody, harmony, and chord progressions)
  • Music notation (traditional notation, jazz notation, and tablature)
