Start playing Rock , Pop Songs , Lead Guitar , Improvising & Classical right away by Ear , Pictures & Tab! All ages welcome , immediate openings !

For a beginner nothing is more fun, & more motivating , than being able to actually play a song ! And for advanced students , theory & reading are introduced in the context of a particular piece , which gives a concrete focus & something to take home & practice.

I will download & learn songs that you suggest, as well as offer my own suggestions, to make a list custom tailored to you, beginning from the first day we talk!

Hi , I'm Roark Hunnicutt . I'm very experienced as a teacher, making my living in guitar instruction for 35 years .

Lessons are in my home studio , "Guitar Instruction-Roark's" , by Appointment Only , near Marengo Av & E Altadena Dr .

2917 Emerson Way Altadena, CA 91001 is my New Address

I believe in a full , one hour weekly private lesson, at a very reasonable rate of $35/hr. You're welcome to try one or two lessons, paying just $35 each time. After that the price is $140 for a set of 4 weekly lessons, paid in advance ; or $40/hr for lessons paid one at a time.

I am available all Day & Evenings: Weekdays & Weekends . Parents are welcome to stay .

I have a big collection of Recordings & Arrangements- no books needed on your part. I also teach from CD's you bring in! With this approach , many students participate with me & learn how to figure out music by ear.

Roark is AMAZING!!! I am 60 years old and started learning my first instrument the electric guitar. I had 3 previous instructors that didn’t really teach me anything but a few chords. No songs. Enter Roark and from my first lesson I have been learning song segments every week. He breaks it down into simple steps. Rhythm then the notes or chords get layered onto the lesson. He helps maximize hand movement and finger options. He gives me tricks on how to progressively learn fast patterns. I can’t say enough good things. I only want to play guitar every day. It’s a new world!!!!

My son Shane, has been taking guitar lessons from Roarck a few months now. Roarck listens to him and wants to teach him music that interests him. Roarck is patient and easy to connect with. I see improvements with my son and passion for guitar. Roarck has been a big help. So glad we found him. My son looks forward to his weekly lesson.

I took several lessons by Roark and I liked the way he conducted them. Besides, he is very knowledgeable about music. He answered all the questions I asked him, and that's amazing. Thank you for your time and effort, Roark!
