Lutherie Instruction in Southern California.

Learn to build your own classical guitar in private, one on one instruction. My approach is much more hands-on than your typical lutherie school. Begin working on your instrument immediately and see tangible results after your first session.

Previous woodworking experience is helpful, but not necessary to complete a beautiful guitar.

Fee for lutherie instruction is $40 per hour.
Most students choose to come for a two hour session once per week. At this rate a completed instrument will take approximately six months.
More condensed time frames are available for motivated, or out of town students, who'd like to finish their guitar in a shorter amount of time.

Guitar making is a fine art, and a certain amount of patience and attention to detail is required. Playing a guitar that one has built for themselves is an incredibly satisfying experience.
