Classical guitar is the first style that I studied. I began playing classical guitar when I was 9 and continued seriously studying that style until I was 20. Currently, I focus mostly on Jazz, Electric Guitar, and Acoustic guitar and so I only accept Beginning and Intermediate students in Classical Guitar.
Classical guitar study includes concepts such as:
- Reading Notation
- Technical Fundamentals
- Music Theory for more advanced students
- Repertoire based on classical music
Andrew S. began playing the classical guitar at the age of 9, electric guitar at the age of 14, and jazz guitar at the age of 16. He holds a Bachelors degree in Jazz Guitar from UNC Greensboro (2011) and a Masters of Music in Jazz Guitar from the Manhattan School of Music (2014). While in graduate school at MSM, Andrew played in the Jazz Orchestra, the Jazz Philharmonic, and the Brazilian Combo.
As a music teacher, he has served as the Head of the Guitar Department at the True School of Music in Mumbai and as a faculty member with MSM Sunday Program, the MSM Outreach Program, and the Roanoke Jazz Institute. He also substitute teaches for the MSM Precollege.

I have taught all levels, using the methods of Giuliani, Carcassi and Sor. Also I encourage my students to develop a basic repertoire for performance, a knowledge of theory and fundamentals.
New York city based guitarist and composer Juan C. immigrated to Miami, Florida at age 21.
His work speaks a unique language that blends elements from his early musical experiences in Colombia, as a member of various folk, rock (metal ) ensembles, and his studies in East Asian music fueled by travels and interaction with musicians and artists in China and Japan.
Juan’s music has been performed throughout South America, the United States and Asia. Although Juan cannot return to his native Colombia, his string duet, “Famous Librarians” (commissioned by Olivia de Prato and Victor Lowrie, was premiered at the Medellín Conservatory of Music.) His piece for electric bass and keyboard, “Glue Pain Ghost,” a collaboration with video artist, Jane Hsu, ...
I studied classical guitar at the University of Central Florida, performing solo and ensemble repertoire. I can teach proper technique with both hands, music notation, sight reading, harmonic theory, and how to realize "orchestral" compositions. From Sor to Villa-Lobos and everything in between!
I studied music at UCF (Orlando), focusing on classical and jazz guitar, but I also have years of experience playing rock, blues, folk, hip-hop, and musical theater on both guitar and drums.
I have been teaching guitar, drums, and piano for about eight years to students of all ages. Music is what I'm passionate about and it's what I enjoy. I want to inspire that same passion into the hearts and minds of others.

I am a laid-back teacher, fun, and I focus on the needs, abilities, and ambitions of the student. In turn, students must realize that learning an instrument takes a lot of work and dedication. One can't expect to learn very much if s/he only practices or thinks about the instrument during the lesson. If the student is willing to put ...
Classical guitars can differ from other guitars. You tend to learn to play classical guitar differently from other guitar styles. The classical guitars six strings comprise of the bass strings which are nylon wrapped in brass wire and the treble (lower) strings made from nylon. It is a wooden bodies instrument. It includes no electronics at all.
A classical guitarist is not just a person who plays a classical repertoire. It is also very important the way he plays. A classical guitarist plucks the strings with the fingers from his right hand and doesn't use any pick. There are also some recommendations about the position of the body that make a classical guitarist different from other guitarists.
Passionate about sharing my love of the guitar with students of all ages, I've been teaching for more than 30 years. A trained Flamenco guitarist, I found, at the tender age of 7, my passion when I heard the world-renowned Flamenco guitarist Sabicas. Studying Flamenco since then, I began, during my teens, performing professionally and have had the honor of performing with such nationally known musicians as Billy Bang (legendary fiddle player), Willy Calhoun (Living Colour), Vassar Clements Band, Tom Chapin, Stanley Jordan, Buddy Miles, and Michael Powers. In high school, I enrolled in an Honors Musicianship class at the RiverDell, NJ, Senior High where I learned to read scores, conduct and identify multiple instruments, sight read, orchestrate scores and compose music. ...
I have been this teaching this instrument for 3 years. I use the Aaron Shearer book as the first instruction to how to play the instrument. Then I go through Carcassi's 25 Studies and Leo Brouwer's New Studies before I teach any professional repertoire. My goal is to teach my students classical guitar technique as well as knowledge of the history and vast repertoire of the classical guitar. I believe that careful and strategic practice combines with great instruction leads to music success.
