Guitar teacher for 8yo with learning differences


i am looking for a guitar teacher for my 8 year daughter. She has learning difficulties and I would love someone who understands this. I live in Oakland, so someone close preferably! Thanks!!

I recommend asking Ian at IR Guitar to set you up with a trial lesson. They have many great teachers and a diverse student population

Joe Osborne is amazing. He has taught in Oakland public schools but recently started his own music school. Really great with all kinds of different kids. I give him my highest recommendation - just excellent!

If you can make it to North Berkeley, Mori Achen is worth the drive. My daughter loved him, and years later she says if she ever had a wedding that she'd have him play at it!

Matthew Heulitt is an amazing guitar teacher!! He is based in Richmond but has been teaching virtually over the past year. He has been teaching for 30+ years, children and adults, and is so skilled, patient, encouraging and knowledgeable. I took classes from him myself but would gladly send my daughter to him in the future. He is a gem!
