Ryan is just fabulous. Not only does he teach all sorts of styles of guitar, he also teaches drums and ukelele. He teaches good technique and great theory on the guitar and shows great patience. He never gets frustrated and is always understanding. When I've written songs, he's helped me figure out the missing piece to the song, whether it was a chord or particular melody or riff. As a music teacher myself, I can say Ryan is a fabulous teacher.

Hi there and thanks for visiting! I have been playing guitar, singing, writing and producing music for the greater part of my life. My endeavor is to guide you to an understanding of one or many of these facets and give you the tools you need to become your own teacher as you continue down this path.

Below is a brief synopsis about the lessons I teach:

Guitar/Songwriting:
There will be very little music theory. I never needed much of it to write my own music, other than a few basic theories to get around successfully, so it’s not something we’ll spend a whole lot of time on. I have organized and constructed a course book to keep things lively and moving along efficiently. I call it NOTEbOOK. It’s also great refresher material to revisit in the future.

I teach basic guitar with accented professional appeal and rhythmic structure. My intention is to guide you to create your own original music using straightforward techniques. My goal, once we part ways, is for you to leave ...

About Lorin
I’ve been a writer and musician since I was a teenager, and have been teaching music lessons for over a decade. I began journaling at 15, mostly free-writing and poetry. This was my segway into guitar and songwriting. Over the years, piece by piece, I’ve gathered many angles to my myriad profession.

I’ll never forget my first singer/songwriter experience when I was 17. I watched my neighbor play guitar and sing on his porch. That moment changed my life and set me on the road I’m on today. Music and poetry can be transcendent when there is truth and love behind it.

At 18, I formed a transitory first band, The Screaming Poets. Shortly after, while attending Columbia College Chicago for creative writing, I organized another project called Satori. This group featured an accoutrement of musicians and styles over the course of its existen
ce. From indie-folk to punkish hard-rock to downtempo electronica, it was its own versatile caravan.

Post-Satori and a plethora of songs later, I fell into the world of electronic music production and engineering, getting hands-on with computer software and a keyboard controller. Furthering my advancement in the technological arts, I attended SAE Institute of Technology located in the heart of New York City. I graduated from the program with high standings.

The introduction to electronic music was a seed planted many years ago working with a friend producer and DJ. Over the years that seed developed into a unique cohesion of computer production with organic guitar songwriting. The electronica artist Loryn was born from this elemental form of designing music. Jointly, signed as Loryn with GoDIY Records, I began offering a licensing/production service for other artists, pitching my original remixes of their songs to opportunities in television.

Under Loryn, in 2011, I began releasing monthly newsletters to my fans and subscribers. In addition to artist updates, my passion for writing naturally crept in and became part of the newsletters. I have recently compiled these newsletters, as well as other works, into an anthology of poetry, prose, and flash fiction published in 2015.

Music… Writing… Teaching… Production… Whatever reason you’re here today, I’d love to learn more and possibly join you on your journey.

Lorin helped me hone my songwriting skills immensely, by not only teaching but collaborating with me when necessary. It was refreshing to find someone who put his teachings into practical learning, where I could see the outcomes become apparent. He’s a nice dude, and is experienced equally across his fields. He guided me to making intelligent choices for equipment purchases, both instruments and pro audio gear. We first met while he was living in New York, and boy has he traveled since. I think living in so many different states, and being that well journeyed has given him good cultural depth to his work. Check out some of his own collabs with singers and musicians from all over the world...that really says it all.

I wanted to learn how to play a Gypsy King song for my wife at our wedding. Lorin taught me fairly quickly, he made it fun and really easy to learn. Then I figured I would learn the basics so I can just jam out to songs or just mess around with my guitar. Now I can strum some early 90's or old school alternative songs. It seems alot easier to learn songs now. Super nice guy and very smart/laid back. Definitely worth the money

Honestly I wasn’t impressed with his skill set and he wasn’t very clear with the points he made on how to rap. Also a little condescending I would not recommend having Prophet as a teacher especially if you’re advanced in hip hop.

Are you interested in learning to play the music you love, using techniques that are actually healthy for your hands? My instruction promotes efficient, ergonomically sound, time-tested playing techniques.

Do you want to play well? Then you need to learn to practice well. Quality practice coaching will make a profound difference in your ability to learn and play music effectively, but it takes time. That's why I offer full hour lessons at a reasonable price.

I offer training for acoustic as well as electric (steel and/or nylon string) instruments and provide instruction in popular music styles as well as formal classical.

Quality practice coaching will make a profound difference in your ability to learn and play music effectively, but it takes time. That's why I offer full hour lessons at a reasonable price ($49). Practice well and you will play well.

About William
I am a professional guitar instructor. I earned a Bachelor of Music in Music Education and graduated with High Honors. My formal training includes classical guitar performance, jazz guitar and improvisation, music theory and arranging, psychology, piano, violin, recording, and much more.

With over 25 years of teaching experience and well over 30 years of experience playing music, I have enjoyed working with students as well as other musicians with broadly diverse backgrounds. I have performed solo, played in rock bands, blues and jazz combos, duos, trios, and classical guitar quartets as well as large guitar ensembles.

Students currently studying with me include young through older adult and retirement age students with performance goals ranging from the private, personal enjoyment of playing music, to professional and semi-profess
ional aspirations.

I strive to provide a friendly, comfortable learning environment my students can thrive in. I won't pressure you to play in recitals in order to increase my studio size, but I will greatly encourage you to play an active role in customizing your own individual curriculum. As soon as you have the skills to do so, you should be learning to play the music you love.

Regardless of what your musical goals are, I would love to help you learn the skills you need to reach them. Thank you so much for your time.

I have taught guitar lessons for over 15 years. Learn the basic hand positioning, technique and chords. I think it’s important to learn songs that are simple and move to more advanced songs along the way. I can teach you how to read notes for guitar, along with understanding the fret board in a simple fun and easy way. If soloing is what you want I can show you how to get into learning the modes and scale patterns with ease. I try to get students to develop their own style and uniqueness to the instrument.

About Terry
With over ten years experience teaching music, I have worked through all sorts of technical and educational issues with students. Anything that you’re struggling with in your playing, or even if you’re just starting out I have the proven experience and competence to help you navigate your instrument. I can prepare you for shows or auditions, or just help you begin to fine tune your abilities. I use a traditional methodology, Hal Leonard, to give students visible structure that they are progressing through and can measure their progress by quickly revisiting previous songs. I like to introduce students to additional concepts beyond the books to help them make sense of what they’re playing. Theory, scales, and technique are smaller, but regular components of education with me. If you have a song you want to learn or an artist that you want
to study, you’ve come to the right place. I have flexible availability and can advise in the purchase of new or upgraded equipment. I invite you to try a lesson with me, there’s no obligation to commit to any more than you’re ready for. Whether you’re 5 or 75, I have the prowess and comprehension to help you achieve your music goals, whatever they may be.
