I have been teaching bass for 30+ years, I start out with the rudiments of music, which include... Reading the Bass Clef, (and bass tabs) notes and note values, Rests, Time signatures etc. In the lessons you will learn good right hand position and technique, Left hand position, The fingerboard (fret-board), music theory and exercises, lessons on slapping, popping, tapping, chords scales, finger picking, Bass riffs, and tips, and many other lessons, of course you will learn simple songs as well as working on complicated songs and riffs, my lessons involve ear-training and when applicable sight-singing or harmonizing, which I try to encourage all students and musicians to do.

Andy is a great musician, teacher and person. He doesn't just understand music, he lives it. He is very patient and supportive with people and his talent definitely needs to be passed on to as many people who are lucky enough to get the chance!

I had looked at several people before settling on Andy for vocal lessons and I'm very happy I did. Even after a few lessons, I've noticed large strides in progress. He's very diligent and not complacent at all. He has stacks of books about voices and vocal faults- he's constantly trying to become better so you can be sure he'll do the same for you.

I've been very happy with my lessons so far and am giddy to see continued progress under Andy.

I would recommend Pablo as a music teacher for your student. He is enthusiastic about both music and teaching. His love for the art is evident in his teaching techniques. He is exceedingly patient and encourages the very best effort from my son. Under Pablo's charge, my son has gone from a beginner to a pretty good musician who loves to play guitar. Thank you Pablo!

Classical Guitar · In studio
Verified Student
Learning to play classical guitar was a "bucket list " item for a very long time. When I finally got the opportunity through a xmas gift certificate from my kids, I was both excited and apprehensive about the opportunity. Excited about the prospect of finally starting my musical journey but apprehensive about starting to play an instrument later on in life.
In my first class Walter sensed my nervousness and quickly put me at ease by listening to me and exploring my reasons for wanting to learn the guitar. Fast forward the clock about 2 years and I'm still learning and progressing on my musical journey, accompanied along the way by a very talented and patient instructor. Make no mistake about it, learning an instrument has been one of the most difficult challenges I've undertaken. But with Walter's patience and ability to gauge my progress he's been able to keep me challenged and motivated. As long as I continue to grow musically, I feel I've come a long way in fulfilling my bucket list objective and for that I have Walter to thank.

I started taking guitar lesson with Lucian, but our theory work inspired me to buy a keyboard, so now I take both guitar and piano on alternating weeks. As much as I still enjoy the guitar, I LOVE my piano lessons. Apparently my piano has come along well enough that my girlfriend now wants lessons for both her and her child. That is no small compliment coming from her! I'm 43, but I would recommend Lucian to anyone at any age, so long as you're willing to put in the practice. I've had a half dozen guitar instructors, not to mention teachers of various subjects and levels. Lucian is among the best.

About Steve

Music has been a part of my life for over 4 decades. I stepped onstage when I was 15, and have been active in the music business ever since. I was raised in the New York / New England area, and played in many bands in the 70's and 80's, most notably the band AVALON. I moved to Florida in the late 80's and began to develop a one man show, using the emerging technology available. I called the show YIN YANG, the infinite possibility of Music. I chose the name, as it is the Oriental symbol for balance, and used it to represent the balance between the electric and acoustic, and the technology of today with the classic music from yesterday. Midi guitar and guitar synthesis became my trademarks as I pushed the boundaries of how I could express myself on the guitar. Being able to play sax, ...

Steve G: A Superb Instructor

I'm a student of Steve G.'s and am in my 40's. I had previously taken classical piano lessons from the age of 7 until 18, but I wanted to try my hand at guitar. Having come from a long line of teachers in my own family, I am well acquainted with the great (but often under-appreciated) skill it requires to be a quality instructor of any kind. A superb instructor (like Steve G.) should possess the following qualities:

1. Patient: Prodigies or masters of their art often lack the ability to convey their ability on a small scale to their pupils. Steve is an amazing performer and artist, and yet he is humble enough to walk alongside you, particularly when you are establishing the fundamentals of guitar technique. He will find the areas that need work and allow you to see how a small amount of persistence can result in large gains.

2. Encouraging: Steve is always optimistic. You can feel his passion for music in every word he speaks. He has the rare gift of making you see the flashes of your own talent, and he will help you build on those. He will not only help you figure out ways to overcome your obstacles in playing, but he will also deepen your appreciation of the instrument itself. He even went with me to the store to pick out an awesome acoustic guitar!

3. Individualizing: Steve doesn't have a once-size-fits-all method of teaching. He is a very keen and observant instructor who will challenge you based on your progress as well as your natural abilities. He will get to know you as a human being and as a budding artist. He will find ways to allow you to take your own inspirations and use them to drive you forward in your musical exploration.

4. Exemplary: Steve has tremendous integrity, not only as an artist but also as a professional instructor. He is also a tremendous guitarist with a broad repertoire, and watching him play will motivate you to become even better.

I hope this review is helpful to anyone who is considering taking lessons. Sign up with Steve and you won't regret it! Good luck on your journey!

You make lessons fun....

From age 6 until high school I took piano lessons. But guitar was always an unexplored desire. I started taking lessons with Steve a few weeks ago. From the very beginning he has been just so easy and comfortable to work with. He willingly adapts his style of coaching to my specific needs as a student, learner and musician. He's so strong in his fundamentals that I can pick the music and he builds lessons around my choices. Really makes me look forward to my own practicing and even more to my next lesson. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Steve, for bringing music back into my life.

THE BEST MUSIC TEACHER EVER!!!

I have been wanting to learn how to play the ukulele for the past two years, but I have been too shy to take lessons because I was scared I would be judged. I finally got the courage to put all my fears aside. I am extremely glad I did, and I was so happy to find Steve as my music teacher. He is very down to earth and never judges. He is very understanding and teaches me at my level. When he sees me getting nervous, he always tells me ," Relax, this is fun.' He makes me feel very comfortable. I'm not scared to ask him questions, or to learn from him. He is always giving me compliments on how I am improving. I believe he is the best music teacher ever, and I wouldn't ask for anyone else!!
