Andrew S. New Paltz, NY

I have a Bachelor's degree in Jazz Guitar Performance from SUNY New Paltz, so you might say I know my way around the fret board.

About Andrew

I have been studying music for eight years now. Having come to music rather later in life than most, I find that I am more empathetic to the perspective of the beginning student than many teachers. I spent the Summer of 2009 teaching music fundamentals to groups of severely physically and mentally disabled children of all ages. Since then I've completed my Bachelors degree in Music, and have taught privately to several students.

To me, music is above all about transformation; yes, beautiful sound transforms our experience of the environment, but learning an instrument transforms the very way a student learns. Learning to play an instrument is an experience of training one’s nervous system to gradually act and respond in new ways, and that kind of persistent, ...

Excellent, knowledgeable, patient teacher

Andrew is an excellent teacher. He is a patient listener and has a gentle style. Andrew is knowledgeable in music theory and uses creative ways to explain musical concepts. He gives a lot of encouragement and praise. I have learned so much from Andrew and I always look forward to our sessions together. I highly recommend him.

Already seeing progress

I've only had 3 or 4 lessons with Andrew, but already I'm seeing progress. Andrew is always on time and sometimes stays later to finish the lesson thoroughly. He teaches in terms of what my goals are and leads me in the direction I need to go. He is supportive and above all else he is very patient, especially since I have dyslexia and learning music theory is not an easy thing for me to do. Taking lessons with Andrew is always fun, and he reminds me NOT to compare myself to where I want to be. Learning with him has been stress-free and productive. I look forward to future progress. :)

Excellent guitar teacher. Patient. Flexible. Knowledgeable.

Even in the first lesson, Andrew got me to freshen up my basic guitar skills. He gave me excellent points on learning chords and helping me to play songs I needed to for solo performances. I look forward to taking my lessons and getting better and I'm sure I will with his help. Highly recommend giving Andrew a try.

I would recommend without hesitation

Amy is probably one of the best guitar teachers i could ask for. Smart, well-trained and just a pleasure to be around. The fact that she's super talented is really just a bonus. I would recommend with confidence and without hesitation.

Excellent with children

Amy teaches my 5 and 6 year old daughters the piano. She is terrific, keeps their attention, teaches them how to play songs they love (such as the theme from the movie Brave) and they are really learning. They can read music and play songs all on their own. They have grown to love music because of Amy. Amy is also talented in voice and guitar (along with other instruments) and at times, she will incorporate this into her lessons to change it up a bit. You would be lucky to have Amy as your instructor!
Danny S. New Paltz, NY

I enjoy teaching students of all levels. If you want to play some Beatles songs on the quad, right on! If you're really into Wayne Shorter and modern Jazz, groovy! Songwriting, Repertoire, Transcribing, Finger style, Travis Picking, Scales, Arpeggios, Advanced Harmony, Sight Reading, Ear Training, Soloing, Accompaniment, Tabs.

About Danny

Over the past few years, I've studied with Modern Guitar Greats such as Jonathon Kreisberg and Mark Dziuba.

Currently, I'm gigging around the Hudson Valley with several Jazz and Rock Groups. You can catch me playing every Sunday from 2-6 at the Cafeteria Coffee House in New Paltz.

Skype Lessons are OK

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons will involve building song repertoire, and exploring how to connect ideas aurally, visually, and mentally.

Teaching, like jamming, should be a conversation. I look forward to learning as much from you as you do from me!

Guitar · In studio
Danny is an excellent teacher. He is patient, encouraging, and a lot of fun. He takes the time to plan lessons around the songs and styles that I'm interested in. He is knowledgeable and passionate about music, and the way he explains basic music theory has helped me understand it so much more than I thought I would. Learning a new instrument with Danny has been stress-free and inspiring. I highly recommend him!
