Guitar lessons in Pleasanton, CA

Paul Psarras

My teaching philosophy is based on years of experience teaching students from various backgrounds. When teaching, I try early on to discover what motivates the student. I access the needs of every student in order to help them progress in their music development. I use a variety of materials to help them achieve their goals. Learning and understanding music takes time, but working every day bit by bit brings consistently good results.
