Joseph Lynn is an excellent guitarist, and exceptional guitar tutor. He takes time to understand the student, and tailor the learning process that suits the student. My daughter had a wonderful experience learning from him. I highly recommend Joseph Lynn.

Joseph was able to instruct me on jazz music which was new to me. He was very patient in getting me to play chords that I never did before and to do progressions up and down the neck of the guitar. He made it seem easy after a while, even though it was tough to grasp at first. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to learn to play the guitar!

Joe is an excellent teacher

I have been studying for more than a year. Joe is extremely versatile and is able to teach any style of music. He emphasizes spending short periods of time each practice session doing exercises that strengthen your fingers by playing chords up and down the fretboard, but does'nt go overboard with repetitive drills. He has genuine love of music and is great iat intertwining theory with actual songs. I have enjoyed my lessons and highly recommend him for students begining to play as well as advanced students.

Scott M.

Nazareth, PA

About Scott

I have a digital recording studio at home, and regularly perform with bands as a singer, guitarist, saxophonist, bassist, percussionist, and as a sound engineer. I perform as a music therapist, singing and playing tunes with an acoustic guitar. I wrote, performed and recorded my own album which made it up to the 2nd round of the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards, and was previously a voting member of the Philadelphia Chapter of the Grammy Committee and NARAS (National Association or the Recording Arts and Sciences.) I started piano lessons from age 5 and just kept picking up more instruments and ge
ar as I got older and never stopped learning or enjoying it

*** Lesson Details ***
I have been teaching Guitars, Basses, Percussion, Piano, Saxophone, Music Production, Recording, and Live Sound for 12 years.

I can teach you note-reading, tabs, ear training, music theory, composition, improvisation in any style of music.

I LOVE working with people writing songs. I can help you write and record your own songs. A computer and internet access are preferred to take full advantage of the technology for learning and producing music.

Knowledgeable in Instrument repair, set-up, and maintenance, I can help you fix it, and how to spot a good instrument.

Patient and experienced, with a broad knowledge of music in all areas, I can give you hundreds of good references from previous students I've taught over the last 12 years

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have :

Guitars, basses, percussion and drum sets, a piano, organ and synthesizer, saxophones, hand drums, microphones... it's hooked up here :)

a 20-track digital recording studio with studio monitors that are equalized to the room's acoustics for accurate listening and mixing.

and an assortment of microphones, amps, mic stands, cables, and connectors and the best part ... I know how to use them all together!

*** Specialties ***
I am comfortable teaching all styles. I do love the songwriting process and recording and will encourage you to do the same.

Nicholas U.

Allentown, PA

About Nicholas

I am a second generation music teacher for piano and violin. I have been teaching for over 15 years as well as playing both instruments for about 30 years. I have an Associates in Music. Making lessons both fun and educational is what make my students successful in their instruments. My lessons are custom made to how the student learns, not cookie-cut. We also do bi-annual recitals in October and April to showcase the students' accomplishments.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are both fun and educational at the same time. I compromise with my students by having us each pick a piece
to play on top of the usual learning pieces. My students play anything from Katy Perry to 80s music and rock ballads and in between. I use John Thompson and Fingerpower as well as a notespeller for piano and String Essentials for violin. Many of my students can play with both hands after six months. We do recitals each year to showcase the past year's achievements in their pieces.

*** Travel Equipment ***
For either instrument I pick up all books and supplies ahead of the lesson. I have my own violin and music stand that I use to assist in teaching.

*** Specialties ***
John Thompson, Suzuki, popular music, Gospel, New Age, and anything in between
