Teacher Profiles

Bio: Christopher O'Hara has been an active musician and teacher for nearly 20 years and holds a degree in music production/engineering from Berklee College of Music as well as an MBA from San Jose State University. Chris is well diverse in many styles and teaches beginners through advance students on electric and acoustic guitar.


"I think a good teacher needs to possess not only a great love for the content, but also a love for the process of helping others engage that material. Learning an instrument can be difficult, however, through one-on-one instruction I can effectively communicate difficult concepts, provide instant feedback, and inspire students to reach their goals."


For best results, Chris recommends taking 4 lessons a month($165/month).


For students on the go Chris gives live one-on-one lessons over the Internet!
