Abdo A.

Long Branch, NJ

About Abdo

I , Abdo A, am a multi-instrumentalist and teacher. I have been a professional musician for 15 years, having earned my degree from Syracuse University in 1973. I have taught over 700 private students in the past 15 years in primarily piano, and guitar, but also on banjo, bass and harmonica. I conduct yearly recitals, encourage supplementary group sessions and show my student performances on YouTube. I am happy to lend instruments to students who are not ready to purchase them, and will do anything to foster the love of music in my students. I also teach disabled students - I'm an approved vend
or of the State of New Jersey Department of Developmental Disabilities, Monmouth Cares, and the Mental Health Association of Monmouth County. I belong to The National Teachers Music Association. I currently play piano weekly at Jesse's Cafe, A local restaurant in the Long Branch Area.

*** Lesson Details ***
I basically divide the lesson into 3 segments - 1) Warming up with exercises, scales and chords, etc 2) Sight reading new materials 3) Reviewing and developing repertoire.I would encourage goals such as the completion of one new song every 2 weeks, or roughly 10 songs within a 3 month period. I don't focus on mistakes, rather I emphasize the entirety of a piece and
developing a comfort level within which to address errors rather than focusing on them

*** Travel Equipment ***
will lend them keyboards or guitars if necessary

*** Specialties ***
Mikrokosmos, John Schaum, Lee evans Jazz Method, Mel Bay, William Leavitt/Berklee Guitar Methods

Andrei P.

Matawan, NJ

I can teach all the basics any banjo player needs to get rolling. I can teach both 5 string and tenor banjos.

I teach many different right hand banjo rolls, chord shapes, and their application in different songs.

About Andrei

Teaching music is my passion, it is more than just a career. I value each student and the time I have with them; helping them to explore the world of music. Hopefully after each lesson, my students walk away with a deeper understanding of music theory and have enjoyed their time. I am available to teach Acoustic Guitar, Electric Guitar, Classical Guitar, Bass, Upright Bass, Banjo, Ukulele, Mandolin, and beginner Drums.

I am a husband and father. I teach all age ranges.

*** Lesson Details ***
I approach each lesson differently because every student is unique. During the initial lesson
I will begin to assess the student's ability, determine the best teaching technique for them, and setup a practicing at home guideline. My job is to help the student reach their individual goals and support them along the way. I feel every student deserves to learn to read music and I will concentrate on this with them.

Lessons are taught in my personal music studio; it is a laid-back, family friendly environment. There may be specific books and supplies I recommend purchasing (these will enhance the success of a budding musician). I will most likely also hand out sheet music of songs to practice and may recommend certain artists within specific genres for the students to listen to and familiarize themselves with.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Classical/Flamenco guitar. I can teach many different styles such as Rock, Blues, Jazz, etc. I am always learning, and am willing to learn so that my students get the best experience they can get.

Andrei has been our weekly music teacher for more than three years. He teaches my son (now 9 years old) to read music and play the drums and the piano, and he teaches me to play the guitar.

Andrei has been nothing but reliable and generous with his time. He is proficient in music history and theory, in a wide range of musical styles, on multiple instruments. His patience, diverse knowledge and skills along with what appears to be an intuitive approach toward each of his varied students, has been very effective for us. Also, he knows A LOT of music, has a great ear and doesn't seem to mind working with us to play whatever tunes we come up with each week.

If you or your child wants to learn to play an instrument, this is the guy!

Vincent T.

West Long Branch, NJ

About Vincent

I have taught for 18 years, giving both private and group lessons. I am a professional musician, having played in numerous bands, recorded and played shows. I have taugh all ages, and all elvels, and all styles. I play a number of instruments including piano, guitar, bass, violin, banjo, mandolin, and harmonica, in addition to writing and singing. I took private lessons for over 10 years, and also studied music in both high school and college.

*** Lesson Details ***
A student can expect to be treated with respect, and have a lesson tailored around their abilities, interests, and amount o
f practice time. I make the lessons fun but also informative. I try to get to know my students so that they feel comfortable. I am laid back, but also determined that a student practice well, and learn not only the instrument but music fundamentals as well. I try to show students that learning music is a lifelong pursuit that can provide all types of fun and personal fulfillment, in addition to being a potential career and social outlet. After 3-6 months, the student will be playing songs, good ones, not just scales. They will also have learned basics, such as chords and scales, as well as sight reading.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Basement converted into music studio with instruments, and piano and keyboard. Parents can sit in on lessons. Street parking available.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide all lesson materials, listening examples, and, on occassion, an instrument. I often use my laptop to play songs and tutorials for students (who don't buy records like we did in the old days.) Generally, students must provide instrument.

*** Specialties ***
I tailor my lessons based on three factors: a student's interests, their ability, and their amount of practice time. I do not use a cookie cutter method of teaching because each student is different. I have studied, formally and informally, rock, pop, blues, jazz and classical. My specialties are rock and blues. On occasion, I will use method books, such as the Schirmer books for piano, but only if the student clearly seems to benefiting from them.

Ryan D.

Brooklyn, NY

About Ryan

I've been a professional musician and teacher for 15 years, having played in Europe, Australia, Canada, and across the US with lots of different groups. I've even played on the Late Show with David Letterman and the Ellen DeGeneres Show! I love to play all kinds of music including classical violin and viola, but I'm also active as a fiddler in many different styles including bluegrass, old-time, swing, jazz, Irish, and Swedish folk. I play claw-hammer banjo (not three-finger style), and mandolin as well. I have a Master of Music in Violin from the University of Colorado at Boulder.

I lo
ve teaching because it makes me approach the technical details of music in different ways with each student. I love working with motivated students who come to each lesson with questions. I want to meet you where you're at so that you can see real improvements in your sound and confidence as a musician.

I look forward to teaching you!

*** Specialties ***
Violin and Viola technique, How to practice, Old Time and Bluegrass Fiddle Styles, Improvisation, Rhythmic String Playing.
