My teenage daughter is having a great experience being taught by Eric. He is very kind and patient and I have already seen tons of improvement in her playing after just a few lessons. We are a busy family and the convenience of the online classes is wonderful.

Overly impressed with Eric as a guitar teacher.
I was hesitant about taking lessons online but it worked out just fine.
Eric is extremely patient and knows how to play/teach about any song. I'm convinced he could teach any level player. As a beginner, I appreciate this.
I would say sign up, try it out. You'll be mad that you didn't!

I'm only a couple of lessons in but already do I feel such an improvement with each class! I chose Eric for his affordable price, but also his clear and concise profile listing what he will teach so I know what I can expect from him. And he's exceeded my expectation! He knows how to teach in a way that provides a beginner like me with detailed technique, and his casual approach helps to ease my own doubts with my own ability. So yes, two thumbs up recommendation!

About VJ

Hello All!
I am a guitarist/composer/educator who holds a M.A. Jazz Performance degree from the Aaron Copeland School of Music at Queens College. I also have a B.A. Music degree with a concentration in classical guitar performance from Buffalo State College in my hometown of Buffalo, NY. However, most of my training and experience comes from playing many different styles of music with many brilliant musicians on the scenes of Buffalo and New York.
If there is just one thing I know about music, it is that playing music is supposed to be fun and satisfying! It is my job to help my students maintain that mindset as they navigate through the obstacles of musical growth. I am looking forward to teaching all of you, as well as learning from all of you myself. Now, lets make some ...

You can say that I'm a rookie when it comes to playing guitar. So, I decided to do something about it. I'm taking 45 minutes sessions with Nick and I have to say that he is a really talented a teacher as well as he is a musician. While having fun during the lessons, I rake in so many new tricks up my sleeve. I love his individual approach, flexibility, and creativity just to outline a couple. For the short while that I've known Nick, he's been all, a patient teacher, a talented musician, but most of all he's been an inspiration to me. My goal was to learn to read music and learn how to play the instrument more fluently. But now, the whole world of new and fascinating opportunities opened up to me because of his mentoring and support. Thank you Nick! I wish I could take longer sessions with you on a more regular basis.

Finally found a guitar teacher who provides individualized instruction based on what I know and don't know. I previously depended on my guitar to make music. Nick showed me how to make the music yourself in your head and then find it on the guitar. He has great patience and also answers every question . And, most important for me, he writes out the lesson notes at the end and sends them. Every previous teacher told me 20 things in a lesson and I remembered two. Nick makes sure that every minute of my lesson is given proper attention.

Highly Recommended

I've taken classes with Nick in a group setting (at Jalopy) and privately, and while I studied guitar as a kid and trombone in school, and I've never had a better music teacher. And I do mean music teacher, not just guitar teacher - Nick's approach is to start with the MUSIC you want to play, not just the guitar as a collection of strings and frets or a series of fingerings to memorize. He's realistic about where people are starting and how much time and energy they have to devote to the instrument with all else happening in their lives (school, work, family, whatever), but he really wants all his students to get better, to learn and progress and love the music like he does, and leads by example of his own musicianship and dedication to the art form. Highly recommended for all levels, all styles.

I love helping bass players with groove and understanding the bass' role in the band, find the pocket and lock in with the drummer.

Scott is not only an amazing guitarist, but he is a superb teacher. Kind, supportive, and has an uncanny ability to break-down difficult pickings and strums into understandable and easy to follow directions. Most importantly, very patient. I was self-taught in the 70s when everyone picked up a guitar, stopped as an adult and am now re-starting it again after 30 years-and enjoying every moment. Scott is able to teach any type of music or song and intuitively understands and teaches the guitar style that the student would like to learn. Any student who studies with Scott should consider themselves fortunate. Not only does he know his stuff, he is passionate about music and passing on this musical knowledge to his students.

Worlds greatest guitarist gives lessons (and he's a good guy too)

I have been taking lessons with Scott for almost 10 years. Lessons have varied from ear training to guitar to songwriting. He is one of the most knowledgable and gifted musicians/ teachers I have ever known.

Lesson structures have been both formal and informal (at my request). I take a lot of information and knowledge home from each one and plenty to practice. Whether you want to learn a song or you want to learn theory, he can explain anything clearly and comfortably meeting you on your skill level.

I was really uncomfortable with where I was musically when I first started taking lessons. Almost immediately after starting with Scott I was confident in talking with other musicians in their language.

Do yourself and anyone who hears you make music a favor, and get a lesson with Scott!

Respectful and Talented Teacher

Scott B. is a masterful guitarist. In addition, he's a great teacher. He communicates respectfully- as good as he is, he never talks down to you and regardless of your level, he speaks to everyone the same way and has the same professional teaching approach. He is amazingly knowledgeable and will give you all the tools you need to become a true guitarist. I can not say enough positive things about him as a guitar teacher!

Alex is a great teacher. I’ve done so much more than I thought I would in the 8 months that we have worked together. He’s patient, calm, nice, and always willing to lend an extra hand. The lessons are fun and they fly by but you still leave knowing you learned something new. I’m happy that Alex is my teacher and I look forward to future lessons.

Alex is an excellent teacher. I've been taking guitar lessons with him for a few months now, and I'm completely satisfied wtih his classes. Aside from being extremely talented and knowledagable, he constantly adapts our classes to a comfortable and appropriate level. As a result, I always feel that I'm understanding the information that he's trying to communciate. I've learned so much working with Alex in such a short amount of time, and I'm always looking forward to our next lesson. I highly reccommend Alex as a guitar or bass teacher.
