Hi everyone! I am a young, vibrant jazz guitarist recognized as an emerging talent on the New York jazz scene.

Adrian B. New York, NY

Guitar lessons can go in a number of directions, from learning how to read music to strumming chords or developing ideas for improvisation. I try to create an agenda that fits the interests of each student, whether they want to work on developing great technique or simply learning to play songs.

About Adrian

Music has played a big role in my life ever since I was 4 and heard The Beatles' "A Hard Day's Night." From that point on, I committed myself towards a life in music, soon after beginning lessons on classical guitar. Through high school I studied classical and jazz guitar at Philadelphia's esteemed Settlement Music School, and I subsequently attended New York University as a jazz studies major in both guitar and composition for a bachelors and masters degree. As a teacher, I love to pair my academic knowledge of music with my decades of experience listening to and playing popular music ranging from rock and funk to bluegrass and hip hop. I've performed in settings ranging from jazz clubs in Italy, to theater in New York, and rock clubs in Philadelphia. In my lessons I like to bring

Fun and Inspiring

Adrian's teaching style has helped me to understand the music pieces in an intuitive way. His ability to breakdown a complex concept into simple ones makes the learning fun and natural. Adrain makes the lessons interesting by discussing the music piece in length and also by sharing the music history behind it. He lets the student decide the pace of learning, but at the same time nudges him to take the next step. I will recommend Adrian to anyone who is interested in learning music.

I would highly recommend Adrian.

Adrian's passion for music really comes through in his lessons, always making lessons both informative and fun. Having no prior experience with the guitar before taking lessons from Adrian, he really catered to my strengths and passion points to find a teaching method that suited me well. It wasn't long before I was able to play a song and all the while, in addition to learning the very basics, Adrian also tuned into music theory and songwriting, which gave our lessons great depth. Additionally, Adrian was always very accommodating with my hectic schedule. I highly recommend Adrian to anyone seeking to begin or advance their guitar skills.

You won't be disappointed

I had Adrian as a teacher in group lessons and was always impressed by his ability to connect with each student on a personal level. Adrian is helpful and understanding in his teaching and extremely talented to boot. It was always a treat to see him demonstrate and he always made the students feel like he was equally happy to be there.

Great teacher!

Matthew has been a big help so far in getting me started playing the guitar. We have had 4 lessons so far, and he has taught me several chords, as well as the c major scale. He has been a big help in teaching me to play in time, as well as finger positioning on the guitar.

Juan C. New York, NY

Years of experience as a live musician and teacher. I focus on bringing out your personal voice and to acquire the necessary technique to achieve your musical goals.

About Juan

New York city based guitarist and composer Juan C. immigrated to Miami, Florida at age 21. His work speaks a unique language that blends elements from his early musical experiences in Colombia, as a member of various folk, rock (metal ) ensembles, and his studies in East Asian music fueled by travels and interaction with musicians and artists in China and Japan. Juan’s music has been performed throughout South America, the United States and Asia. Although Juan cannot return to his native Colombia, his string duet, “Famous Librarians” (commissioned by Olivia de Prato and Victor Lowrie, was premiered at the Medellín Conservatory of Music.) His piece for electric bass and keyboard, “Glue Pain Ghost,” a collaboration with video artist, Jane Hsu, was invited to a world premiere at ...

I have spent one year locking myself up in my room, every day for a few hours at a time, stumbling my way to learning the guitar. On my own, I have made it far enough to be familiar with a repertoire of chords, able to learn songs and even develop the mindset for habit forming. But after one year I felt my own limits and decided to discard my ego and find a teacher.

From his profile here I could tell that Juan was not only a skilled musician, but a keen and pensive instructor. After a single session Juan was able to properly asses my abilities and my shortcomings and tailor-designed an approach that matches my personal and musical nature. He uses my strong affinity for technique and uses that to discourage my hesitancy toward theory. He has a comfortable and approachable presence where mistakes and flaws are encouraged as learning footstools. With humble discipline he pushes me to -want- to be better.

With Juan I am absolutely confident in not merely becoming an apt guitarist, but a genuine musician.

Excellent Guitar teacher!!

Juan is an amazing teacher. He balances lessons with fun and work. My daughter has not only learnt so much, but comes out of each lesson with a smile.
Timothy H. New York, NY

I have been teaching guitar lessons for almost 5 years. I am capable of teaching from beginner to an advanced level of playing. Guitar is my primary instrument, and has been for 15 years. My focus is on jazz and blues, but I can teach folk, rock, or classical as well.

I prefer is to use a method book, which introduces and reinforces music fundamentals. Simultaneously, I like to allow the student to select a piece of music that they will enjoy learning and playing. This helps the student apply the often challenging fundamentals to music that they enjoy.

My students have fun, and with practice, learn a lot!

About Timothy

I am a songwriter, composer, and performer living in New York City. I am a formally trained musician with considerable real world performing experience. Teaching music is something I enjoy immensely and something I am extremely passionate about. During my time as a college student studying music, I began teaching guitar lessons. I found the work to be extremely rewarding. I was happy to be spreading a bit of love for music around, and I believe I made some lasting impressions. I continued to teach music lessons after I graduated, expanding to teach piano as well. The more I taught, the more I found sincere joy in teaching. As I was was getting to know each of my students better, I realized that I was doing more than just teaching music lessons. I was acting as an example,

Great teacher

Tim taught my now 8 year old son piano and guitar lessons. He was kind, patient and encouraging. My son enjoyed practicing during the week and improved at a steady pace. At the little recitals, Tim accompanied my son in guitar, which gave my son confidence and made him feel 'cool' to be playing with an adult. Tim was a great role model for my impressionable son.
Devin A. New York, NY

Extensive experience teaching rock, jazz and acoustic guitar. I base my teaching around the interests of the student, and also make sure to cover important fundamentals of music such as scales, chords and music theory.

I enjoy helping students develop their unique talents and helping them to find their own musical voice on the guitar or bass.

I highly recommend , if you are interested in developing your guitar skills and/ or expanding your knowledge of music theory , to schedule an appointment with Devin for a lesson . I came from my native Brazil to study jazz at an american college and he patiently introduced me to jazz music . I not only was able to succeed in my jazz ensemble classes with straight A's , but I also got prepared to audition successfully to universities and will be completing my bachelors degree in music soon. And I thank Devin for that .

I had the privilege of taking guitar, ensemble, arrangement/composition, and theory lessons with Devin for 3 years. Not only is he very knowledgeable in his field, but he also has a knack for communicating his lessons in an easy-to-understand manner. Devin truly listens and is genuinely patient. He tailors his lessons to help you achieve your personal goals while simultaneously giving you a well-rounded, solid foundation in music standards. Plus, he's just a really nice guy! Definitely recommended!

Teaching Guitar in Bronx, NY

By Dimitry E.- Bronx Guitar Teacher

For a musician, there is no locale more exciting or inspiring than New York. With world-renowned recital halls, jazz clubs, conservatories, outdoor concerts, and the throng of artists who populate these places, there is music to be found on nearly every street corner. The entire city becomes your classroom and your musical canvas. As a guitar teacher, my job is to be the tour guide – providing a “lay of the land”, offering support and answering questions, while assisting the student in navigating his or her personal musical journey.

I have been fortunate enough to teach students from a diverse range of ages and backgrounds, with various motivations spurring their desire to learn the guitar. However, the most inspiring students I’ve ever worked ...
