Highly Recommended!

Matt's a great teacher. He's really good at articulating, and helping you visualize, the different things that are going on when you sing. In the past few months I've noticed a big change in how I look at, and approach, singing.

Really looking forward to continued growth with this teacher!! Highly recommend him!

Amazing Learning Experience

I've had lessons for many different instruments and different teachers in the past. I would say Matthew is the most patient and thorough teacher I've had. Being a beginner at drums, we heavily focused on good technique and are gradually moving forward as I learn everything 100%. I feel very confident that as I continue taking lessons with Matthew I will be a pro. He gives me the right tools so I can go home and practice what we learned in the lessons and I feel myself getting better and better every week. Overall, I have really enjoyed my experience, Matthew is very professional and has great energy!

About Jonah

Hello all. I have been teaching for about 10 years now. I have degrees from two universities, one for jazz performance and one for classical performance. I have played in multiple bands throughout my life ranging in styles from punk rock all the way to straight ahead jazz. If you choose me for lessons, we will work on developing your musical vocabulary, learning to read music, hand exercises, chordal structures, scales, tablature and so much more. I have a love for music like none other and a passion to share that with my students.

*** Lesson Details ***
A typical lesson with me would start with some warm-up exercises. I then like to move on to any book material you may have had for that week. We will also work on chords and scales to use accordingly with any songs you're ...

Excellent Instructor for All Ages

Our 10 year old son is really enjoying his weekly at-home guitar lessons with Jonah. Jonah has been careful to thoroughly cover the basics before moving on to more in-depth instruction. This patient teaching method has proved invaluable to keeping our son engaged and giving him confidence to move forward. Jonah approaches each lesson with an easy-going and relaxed demeanor balanced with a serious expectation of learning each lesson's stated goals and objectives. Our son is looking forward to a successful year learning the guitar and we would highly recommend Jonah to anyone seeking guitar instruction.

Peter B. Stratford, CT

Music theory distills and analyzes the fundamental parameters or elements of music, €”rhythm, harmony (harmonic function), melody, structure, form, and texture. It helps better understand what is played and how certain functions affect the certain musical compositions.

About Peter

I am energetic, experienced and creative music teacher with a proven ability to get the very best out of pupils. I am an expert at identifying the appropriate resources required for a subject matter and then ensuring that they are used efficiently, effectively and safely, always keen on building a strong relationship with my students. Most of my students read and play simple music after 4-5 classes of active instruction.

I posses an extensive classical music and music pedagogy training. All my musical knowledge and expertise was attained in Eastern Europe. I play and teach piano, upright bass, bass guitar and a range of other instruments. Over the years I taught basic piano, the beginner violin, viola, cello and a variety of school instruments such as recorder and xylophone. I ...

Was very impressed with Peter's methods, demeanor, patience with my 9 year-old daughter, who is a beginner at piano. She had some experience at reading music, and Peter was adept at recognizing this and 'pushing the envelope' a bit with her and she responded enthusiastically. She left every lesson with a smile on her face.

About Sam

Hey all,

My name is Sam W. I've been teaching private music lessons for nearly 10 years, and have enjoyed meeting new students and helping them discover their love of music.
I've recently received my Masters of Music in Scoring for Film and Multimedia at NYU Steinhardt. Outside of giving lessons, I also compose music professionally for use in film, TV and the web.

I specialize in teaching guitar, piano and drumkit, as well as music theory/composition and audio recording techniques and software.

I look forward to helping you along on your musical journey!

Music theory is very important to the aspiring guitarist and bass player. I have a hands on approach to teaching theory so it makes sense to the student. Music is a language and theory is the grammar. A solid foundation in music theory can prepare anyone who wants to perform for any given situation.

About Jeff

*** Travel Equipment ***
When I travel, they're expected to have an instrument, amp (if necessary) and note book.

*** Specialties ***
Having taught for so long I rely on my own experience as a musician, using my extensive knowledge of music theory and the guitar as an instrument to impart a heightened awareness and love of performance and the rewards of a disciplined and focused practice habit to my students. Whether a student wants to learn rock, blues, jazz, pop, folk or other genres, I give them key insights and the right approach to achieve his/her goal in the minimum amount of time. Practice is essential to growth.

My son has been taking lessons with Jeff for a year now and can honestly say he is one of the best teachers he has had. He not only teaches my son to play songs, but also teaches him how to read notes, the theory and history of music. My son enjoys and looks forward to meeting with Jeff for his lessons every week. And I extremely happy and thrilled to have found him.

I've been taking lessons with Jeff for over 6 years. He is the most knowledgeable instructor I've ever met and is fluent all music styles with an in depth understanding of music theory. Our lessons are always fun, entertaining and educational. We always mix music theory with any songs we are trying to figure out and Jeff always wants you to leave with having learned something new, not just how to play a song.
I really value the time I spent in Jeff's lessons and would recommend him to anyone interested in pursuing guitar lessons.

Jeff is a great guitar teacher! He is very knowledgeable and I really enjoy my lessons. I have been playing guitar for more than 30 years and I have tried different teachers. Until I met Jeff, I could not find a teacher that could assess my knowledge and add to it. Jeff is the only guitar teacher that was able to understand where I was at and provide insights and improvements right away. Other teachers all focused on what they wanted to teach, not what I needed to learn. If you are an experience guitar player and want to improve, Jeff is the guy. My lessons cover multiple styles but mostly rock, blues, and jazz.

Jeff always has something new for me that is interesting & fun. I'm looking forward to my next lesson.
