I love the way you explain the notes to the kids. They all have told me how much they like you and feel very comfortable with your teaching. You key into each child needs. I see great progress with Nik and Liam Kat needs more practice which she will do this week. See you Thursday.
Benjamin K. Glenside, PA

Guitar is my main instrument. I teach all styles from blues, to rock, to shredding, to jazz to classical to flamenco. Learn how to pick like Johnny Cash or fly like Steve Vai.

About Benjamin

I grew up in Glenside moved to Pittsburgh for school and came back because I love it here...I've been playing for 17 years and have a smorgasbord of influences from Zeppelin to the Beatles to Phish to Radiohead to the dirty projectors to Jay Z to Kurt Rosenwinkel & John Scofield. I have been composing and working with original bands for some 11 years and play regularly in the city and up and down the east coast. I have also been teaching for the past 11 years all over the Philadelphia area. i teach from a method I derived myself from years of learning both in and out of school. I think teaching music is both aural as well as visual and encourage students to listen to music a lot. most of all i feel that music is fun and the students should enjoy learning so i incorporate their ...

Ben was fabulous! He taught me music I wanted to play at a speed that fit for me and simplified harder songs for a beginner like me to still be able to play a song I loved! Great teacher and picks up on your strengths and weakness. I would highly recommended him as a teacher! He's also funny and would make lesson's enjoyable! He was friendly to my dog and birds as well :)

Excellent Instructor

I highly recommend Benjamin! I have had several instructors and I can honestly say that he is the best I've had so far. He doesn't stick to any rigid lesson plans. His teaching style is very dynamic, he will taylor the lesson to fit your interest and level of playing. He keeps things fun and interesting and is good at coming up with creative exercises to try and challenge you. He also knows a lot of different music styles from what I can tell. I highly recommend him.
John R. Mount Laurel, NJ

I can be as sophisticated as needed, or as bare bones as needed. I am here to cater to the individuals' preferred method of learning. I believe in building a strong foundation, and will only push you as far as you can handle. We will move forward at a pace that fits with the individual, as some learn faster than others and some are able to devote more time than others. I am here to help you along the musical path of your choosing. If you are unsure of what musical path to embark on, yet you know you just want to get started, I will do my best to open your ears and eyes to all of the possibilities that potentially lie ahead.
I have been teaching on and off since 2005, and consistently since mid 2012. I use a number of materials from Musicians Institute curriculum (the school which I graduated from) and have also worked from various Hal Leonard and Mel Bay beginner books. My teaching philosophy is to exploit the origin; meaning one must have a full understanding of what comes ...

About John

My name is John. I am a graduate of Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA where I received a Bachelors of Music Performance on the guitar. I have moved back to South Jersey, and am looking for students.
My areas of expertise lie in metal/rock/progressive playing, songwriting and arranging. I also feel at home in the classical realm as far as orchestration and arranging go. I can teach various techniques on the guitar (including the fore mentioned styles) along with funk, blues, jazz, alternate picking, sweep picking, legato playing, hybrid picking, harmonizing, chord melody, odd meter, theory, and ear training as well as all things beginner.
I am also proficient as a vocalist, drummer/percussionist, bassist, and can find my way around a piano.

Highly engaging music teacher for children

Amanda R has been coming to my home to teach my daughters, ages 6 and 8, piano and music theory (reading music, etc) for several months now. We are very pleased with her. After a series of private and group lessons with other highly qualified teachers, we finally found all we were looking for with Amanda. She is well-spoken, well-educated and very professional both in person and in email or phone communication. She engages the children from the first moment and is very patient with them. They trust her and enjoy working with her. Amanda was able to quickly see what the girls already knew and where their knowledge had gaps, and to tailor lessons to their abilities and interests. The practice she assigns during the week is very reasonable/not overwhelming. the girls show a very good improvement in their music skills! I would recommend Amanda to any family looking for a music teacher for their children. She clearly has a passion and gift for working with kids!

A very good teacher

I think miss Ramus should get a 5 star rating because she teaches at a pace my daughter is comfortable with, and if there's trouble she'll be helpful and quick to fix it, also she takes teaching the guitar seriously but is very nice to my daughter, one last reason why I think that she should get a five star rating is because she's a great teacher! She is an expert at what she teaches and is always on time she not only teaches you guitar she teaches you basic music notes and sight reading to help you play better, I hope you see why I think that she should get a five star rating.

Great teacher!

Amanda has been teaching my 9 yr old daughter, Kaylee, for about 6 months now and it's amazing to see how much she has learned and progressed!! Kaylee looks forward to her lessons with Amanda every week and really enjoys playing. Amanda has been a great teacher, she is very professional and yet makes the lessons fun and relaxed so the students feel comfortable. We couldn't have picked a better match for our daughter.
Michael C. Philadelphia, PA

Using your favorite songs form any genre of music students become familiar with musical scales, arpeggios, chords, music notation and theory, rhythm and ear training.

About Michael

Michael C. was eleven years old when he began to play the electric bass guitar. He decided to get an electric bass because it was the one instrument needed to start a band among his friends. In addition to playing the electric bass, Michael enjoyed time practicing on the guitar and piano in high school. Transferring the knowledge and finger technique to the guitar came easy because of the similarities between guitar and the bass. And growing up with an upright piano in the house always lead to tinkering and eventually became a proficiency after college. In 1996 Michael enrolled at the the Philadelphia University of the Arts. He was awarded a presidential merit scholarship and a university grant based on his entrance audition. During his studies Michael was recruited for a student ...

Original Gift Idea

I purchased 5 lessons from Michael as a Christmas gift for my wife. It was a fantastic idea- she loves her lessons! Michael is a very skilled teacher and I have already noticed improvements in my wife's playing.

I highly recommend Michael for anyone looking for a music teacher.
