Gio A.

New York, NY

I began learning mandolin a couple years ago and am proficient with chords and tunes. Classical or bluegrass style. I can teach sight reading music notation as well.

About Gio

I studied music at UCF (Orlando), focusing on classical and jazz guitar, but I also have years of experience playing rock, blues, folk, hip-hop, and musical theater on both guitar and drums.

I have been teaching guitar, drums, and piano for about eight years to students of all ages. Music is what I'm passionate about and it's what I enjoy. I want to inspire that same passion into the hearts and minds of others.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid-back teacher, fun, and I focus on the needs, abilities, and ambitions of the student. In turn, students must realize that learning an instrume
nt takes a lot of work and dedication. One can't expect to learn very much if s/he only practices or thinks about the instrument during the lesson. If the student is willing to put some time into practicing, then I will help them go far!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have several guitars, a drum kit, djembe, mandolin, clarinet and full-size keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar: Classical, jazz, American or Irish folk, rock and pop; lead or rhythm.
Drums & Percussion: All genres
Piano: Classical (includes sight reading)

Daniel E.

Jersey City, NJ

Learn mandolin chords, strumming, and tons of songs!

About Daniel

- I have a record of success with students of all ages, backgrounds, abilities, and goals
- I teach using a variety of methods and styles, including my own authored books
- I own a music academy where I train others to be successful instructors
- I have a very high student retention rate
- I've been playing over 25 years
- I have a BA in Music from Florida State University
- I have been teaching for 17 years
- I have personally taught over 15,000 private lessons
- I have played in numerous bands
- I have gigged professionally

*** Lesson Details ***
I customize the lessons to the
goals of each student. Whether it's for fun and leisure or a driven passion with serious goals, I can give you the tools to accomplish what you want! I love teaching people through the music that they love. So, whether that's Britney Spears, Metallica, or Bach, the concepts underlying music are basically the same. I will make sure you can play the music you love and hopefully help you explore new music as well.

*** Studio Equipment ***
In my studio I have a Guild Classical, Alvarez Acoustic, and Epiphone Electric.

All the accessories needed as well. Music Stands, Foot Stools, Picks, Straps, Slides, Tuners, Books, etc.

I also use an iMac in lessons. I like incorporating technology when appropriate, to look up tunes, or do a recording session, it's a necessary tool to learn nowadays.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will bring everything we need to conduct a proper lesson remotely. I do recommend you have your own guitar though.

*** Specialties ***
For all the advanced knowledge I have and years of teaching students of all kinds, my favorite is teaching beginners. I love seeing someone come in with no knowledge of music, and taking them from milestone to milestone. I love watching new musicians blossom.

I play, teach, and perform most frequently in classical, rock, blues, and pop genres.

I started taking lessons with Dan randomly but quickly grew to enjoy and appreciate his unassuming style and incredible versatility so much that I signed up both my kids. And now they love him too. I can't recommend Dan highly enough.

Concetta has a lot of excellent suggestions for improving singing performance. The typed notes she sends after each lesson were a tremendous asset as well. In only five lessons, she improved my daughters stage presence and taught her how to engage an audience. We were always short term clients, but Concetta more than met our goals and expectations. I would very much recommend her for any level of voice and performance. Excellent teacher

Concetta was fantastic with my six year old son with special needs. She was patient and engaging. We left and he told me that her studio was his "favorite place".

Jordan G.

West Orange, NJ

I have been playing mandolin for a couple of years. There is no denying that the mandolin isn't my first instrument, however, I am capable of teaching beginner mandolin students every thing they need to know to give them a solid foundation. I teach out of a book, but I also focus on applying mandolin skills to learning popular songs and folk melodies.

About Jordan

Hi, my name is Jordan. I'm a senior in high school, and I am currently planning on pursuing a degree in music education. I have experience with many genres of music including classical, jazz, pop/rock, and music theater. In addition to being a multi instrumentalist, I am also a songwriter, and have an album being released this year. I've had multiple #1 singles on radio stations all around the globe including in Nashville, New Jersey, England, and Australia. My specialty and biggest passion is country and rock music. Although I'm young, I have lots of experience so if you are looking for quali
ty lessons in anything with strings...I'm your man :)
