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!
Jefrey B. Brooklyn, NY

Beginner to advanced. My specialty is improvisation within a song. James Jamerson and Paul McCartney are 2 of my biggest influences. Soul,soul, soul! Bass is the foundation, the support, the groove and the melody that makes the feet move!

About Jefrey

I am a working musician here in Brooklyn, New York. I started playing guitar the day before high school, my mother taught me my first chords. That was along time ago. Since then I've been blessed to live a musical life. I've had the good fortune to work with bands such as TV on The Radio as a live and studio musician. Music has allowed me to see the world now and I want to share my gifts with others as much as I can.

My brother and I taught each other how to play. We started playing in bands almost immediately. We really helped each other develop our ears. In a brief period of time we could play with just about any band. To me the best place to learn is on the bandstand, I can help you find your way there. I had a wonderful classical guitar teacher in high school named Bruce ...

I took guitar lessons with Jef a few years ago at his shop. He was always a very patient and attentive teacher. He also asked me a lot of questions about what kind of music I was interested in playing, what aspects of a particular style were interesting to me. There was one very memorable lesson when he had picked out some records he thought would relate to what I was learning and played them for me. We listened and talked about them and then played some more. Jef's teaching was well rounded and very enriching. More than just improving technically, I was encouraged to figure out what aspects of the instrument I related to most, and thereby was able to develop my own sense of style.

Jef is a fantastic music instructor--period! Jef is one of those rare individuals who is an amazing creative artist AND teacher. Learning from Jef is a beautiful experience--he couldn't be more a more genuine and down to earth person and he has a wonderful gift to be able to impart musical skills and concepts to his students in a way that is unique and individual to each of his pupils. I've had the privilege of studying with Jef for a number of years and can't recommend him highly enough to anyone interested in pursuing Guitar, Bass Guitar or Saxophone instruction. It doesn't matter what your skill level is, you will learn and grow with this guy. He's a seasoned veteran performing and recording musician in many different styles and he knows how to connect with his students. Like a doctor, he diagnoses each student and situation and prescribes just the right medicine to make things move in the right direction. Look no further people, study music with Jef and you'll be happy you did!!!

About Marco

I started playing guitar seriously at the age of 12 and have been a guitar teacher for 22 years. My first influences were rock and metal. In my later teens, I became very interested in other music genres such as jazz, fusion and classical. I began my formal music education as a Classical Guitar performance major, ultimately obtaining a Masters Degree in Music Composition from the Queens College Aaron Copland School of Music.

The road I have taken with music has been paved with many unexpected twists and turns. Throughout my many years of learning and making new discoveries, I have now arrived at a point where I am able to productively incorporate knowledge from various experiences with music and education into my own creativity and teaching. I never expect to stop learning or ...

Marco is one of the best teacher ever, I knew him way back in 1997 when I first came in to the state. At first, one of my friend was taking the session and he didn't mind me just staying and observed. After a few classes, I decided to go with Marco. As a new immigrant, language barrier is a problem. He 's patiently teach me from a to z. Making sure I understand everything. Although, I knew some of the basic of the guitar. I was surprisingly I could learn how to read music. Be able to improvise with him during lesson. You're not just learning how to play song/guitar. You learn music theory all in a packet. I still remember one day I was playing in the local shop in HK, people was whispering this guy is good. This is a good memory that I have until now.

I was a student of Marco's for about two-almost three years, and his excitement, love, desire, wisdom and passion for music and teaching is something that can't be described in words. Marco is a teacher that likes to have fun with whatever it is he may be teaching, but he is also very serious about it to make sure his students learn what they want in the best way possible to them. He will encourage his students if they need it and congratulate you every time you complete whatever it is you may have learned from him. I mostly learned techniques/songs from artist's such as Randy Rhoads, Angus Young, and much more from Marco. He will not let you down. He won't give up on you. I would gladly learn from him any time /any chance I'd get.

Marco has been teaching my son how to play the guitar since 2008. I feel that we were blessed having Marco as my son's first teacher. He really understood him and I was brought to tears at his very first recital when I was amazed how much he had learned in just a short few months. He is a senior in HS now and he has a love for the guitar and a passion to learn new music on his own.
Marco is an exceptional teacher who is very patient and understands his students and listens to their needs. He is extremely talented and anyone would be very lucky to have him as their music instructor. I recommend him highly. He is the best!

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.

About Isaac

While still in high school, Isaac had the opportunity to study with jazz legend John Patitucci. Isaac's selection for New York's prestigious All-State Festival came as no surprise.
