Seth Hollander began playing guitar in 1992, where he immediately became passionate about the instrument. At age 17, he recorded a professional quality recording with his high school band, Legacy. Through his teen years, he performed regularly at his church.
From 1998-2003, Seth studied music theory and recording arts at Mira Costa College, and played in countless local bands.
He won the San Marcos Guitar Center’s Guitarmageddon in 2003 and 2004.
In 2010, Seth played to 20,000+ people at the Loud Park Festival in Saitama, Japan with Holy Grail.
Seth has taught thousands of lessons since 2004, and also does guitar repairs and customization.
After receiving numerous requests for instrument lessons outside of his expertise, Seth created Mobile Music Teacher to bring high quality teachers to his clients. His school offers Piano, Drum, Voice, Guitar, Bass, Ukulele, and more.
One of the many benefits of being involved with the school is the ability to put on student recitals. Seth can be seen playing along side his students in bi-annual Rock Recitals. He will literally take you from the beginning steps to the stage.
“My friendly personality, lame jokes, and abundant guitar knowledge ensure that my lessons are fun,
and that we will have an amazing time.
I want to help my students to get where they want to be,
and can adapt my teaching style to suit any level of player.
I let my students guide me to the songs they want to play, whether it’s a new Disney teen group or the latest heavy metal band. My methods are simple and proven.
If you've tried guitar lessons before and put the guitar down - I'm the teacher for you.”

With Seth’s help and encouragement my son was able to take an AP music theory class and get an A! I have always appreciated the way he has changed his approach to match my son’s maturity level over the years.
The lessons are tailored to the individual level and there are bi-annual rock recitals where each student gets to be a rock star for a night on a real stage!
Not only do you learn an instrument at your own pace, but the added advantage of the opportunity to play WITH a band is so unique! I highly recommend this group of teachers.
Through one on one instruction and the recitals my son has gained valuable stage experience performing with other musicians.
Over the years, Seth has inspired my son to perfect his craft which has lead him to pursue a professional career in music. My son, through Seths' musical guidance, was accepted and will attend The Musicians Institute in Hollywood this fall.
