My family has been students of Chris Shahin even before SJG. He’s is truly an amazing guitar teacher and just a wonderful person. I brought both my boys to SJG, one for guitar and the other for drums, both thrived in the learning environment they provide. They are now 25 and 29 and still enjoy playing.
I went to Chris as well 12 years ago because I played as a kid and wanted to be involved in music with the boys again. It was so great, because Chris can teach any skill level and adjusts his teaching to the students’ needs which for me was awesome because I just wanted to play again for fun and wanted the boys to learn music the correct way, plus still have fun. All of us looked forward to going every week and couldn’t wait to learn with him. It became a place for me as an adult to have the hobby I dreamed of as a child.
So life happen and stopped for several years––college & marriage for the kids. I’m in my mid 50’s I lost part of my memory due to an accident and started back again August of 2013 over a year now again and I can’t wait to go play, I feel I’ve improved so much and so happy Chris is who he is, he made it so cool to go back and relearn all that I’ve lost. He has more patience than anyone I’ve ever met. I’m very lucky I found Chris Shahin he brought music back in my life with the love I once had as a child. I truly believe as long as his doors are open I will continue my lessons and playing guitar for the rest of my life.
I recommend Chris if you’re a little older who use to play and just want to play again without going back to step 1 of Mel Bay or if you never played at all. Plus since going I purchased a few new guitars so I can’t stop now lol
If you have a child or grandchild who you wants to start from the beginning and have fun while they learn, he is truly the best teacher I could have ever had. 5 stars is not enough.
Check them out, I also saw they have a brand new Piano and the teacher has been there from the start and everyone I’ve spoke to about him, reviews are the same 5 stars
San Jose Guitar, is the place for music.
