Portland Oregon Guitar Lessons Info, Cost, & Location


Jonathan Barker is now accepting Portland guitar students of all levels and styles on both acoustic and electric guitar. When not performing live or in the studio, he maintains a busy teaching schedule in Portland, having taught over 30,000 one-on-one guitar lessons in the past 20 years. In addition to his degree in Music from Cal Poly, Jonathan has also served as a faculty member with the National Guitar Workshop/Workshop Live. Lesson material is all original with over 2,000 pages and counting.

If you’re new to the guitar you’ll start off by learning the key fundamentals and techniques of guitar and music through the songs of your favorite artists. For advanced players who are tired of mindlessly riffing away in box patterns and feel locked down to one area of the fretboard, he’ll give you the keys that will unlock the mystery behind modes, arpeggios, and chord structures. Jonathan will take your knowledge of theory to the next level through compelling exercises and challenging examples that can be applied to any real life playing situation.
