I live in Alameda and am taking lessons from Jon Mendle, who is based in San Francisco. It is a bit of a schlep, but worth it. He is a graduate (I believe a masters) from the SF Conservatory. He is extremely knowledgable about music, has great instincts, is very efficient with good fingerings, is easy to work with, and is a terrific player in his own right.I'm looking for a teacher

Homer, Jon Mendle actually borrowed my guitar to make a video on behalf of it's luthier, Paul Weaver. So I got to meet him briefly when he borrowed and returned my guitar. He left a double top cedar for me to play while my guitar was with him; quite a contrast! and yes he's a great guy that I'm sure is easy to work with. But S.F. is just too much of a slog for me. maybe he'd come to our side of the bay if we both saw him on the same day (not likely). Umm, would you mind mentioning what he charges?

In Pinole, there is a humble music store that has been there forever - Fiat Music. For the measly sum of $22/30mins, you can schedule lessons with Mr Ben Barron, protege of Rey de la Torre, and graduate of the SF Conservatory. Call them up and set up a phone conversation with Ben to see if he has what you want/need in a teacher. He has a heavy emphasis on performance skills, but can coach you on the finest techniques and theory. Also, his focus at the Conservatory was in the Romantic period, but he taught me Renaissance, Baroque, and Classical periods as well.Jeffrey Armbruster wrote:I'm looking for a teacher; hopefully someone knows someone!
As an aside, he and I are performing together on 1/29 - the student and the Master. Me on my Gore, and he on his Ruck formerly owned by del Torre.
