About Eric
Every great performer needs a great coach, I will help you become your best!

I began my partnership with takelessons in 2013 and teach many of my students in person at my creative and comfortable home teaching studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, but I’m also highly experienced as an online music instructor (Takelessons Live, Skype, FaceTime and G+). Through our partnership, I have helped takelessons launch/beta test new online programs and watched both the company grow and my student's succeed!

My experience includes playing/coaching well-known musicians/celebrities, on-set tutoring for feature films, coaching for recording sessions, and helping music hobbyists have more fun (kill it in front of their friends/family!)

I work with many students to prepare for high school/college/conservatory admission, casting calls for TV/Film, m
ajor tour auditions, industry showcases and studio recording sessions.

I'm the vocalist, lead guitarist & songwriter for a well-known touring rock band with a worldwide fan base and nearly 4 million You Tube views. I graduated from New York University with Bachelor's of Music in Jazz guitar and trained with the most highly respected rock/pop vocal coaches in the world. In 2015, I signed a major label publishing deal with Fieldhouse Music/BMG played throughout Europe (and taught online lessons while away). My songs have been licensed for national/international TV (E!, MTV, VH1, Oxygen, TBS and more), commercials for CBS, Nike, Coca-Cola, Samsung and in video games. I actively perform/record and tour with my (3) bands, and produce/co-write with artists for their own projects.

I’m endorsed by PRS guitars, Elixir Strings, Godin Guitars/Bass Guitars, & Metaldozer Mic Stands.

Styles I regularly teach include: Rock (Classic Rock, Indie Rock, Alternative Rock, Hard Rock), Metal, Punk, Pop, Jazz, R&B, Blues, Funk, Soul, Classical, Folk.

∙ vowels and modification techniques

∙ vocal health/maintaining your voice

and personality

Lead / Rhythm Guitar:

I've developed a step-by-step approach to learning to solo and improvise.
Using simple, "guitarist-friendly” techniques you will quickly learn and begin to apply major/minor scales/modes, blues/pentatonic scales and “licks.” You will learn triads, arpeggios, interval studies, and extensions and how to use them to create interesting and melodic solos. With my line development/phrasing techniques, you will have your own library of “licks” that will help you navigate both simple and sophisticated harmonic progressions. I will help you to become a become a well-rounded, three-dimensional guitarist with a unique voice!

A few of techniques I teach:

∙ triads / arpeggios
∙ strumming
∙ alternate/sweep picking
∙ tremolo picking
∙ hybrid picking
∙ scales/modes
∙ slide guitar
∙ hammer on/pull off
∙ (up to 8 finger) tapping
∙ bending / double stops / unison bends
∙ whammy bar techniques
∙ diagonal scales,
∙ arpeggios & note groupings
∙ 3 and 4 finger per string scales
∙ fingerstyle
∙ Jazz scales, chords including
4 note open/closed voicing
7th, 9th, 11th, 13th chords
∙ chord melodies
∙ rhythm and grooves of various styles

Bass Guitar:

Right hand:
∙ finger style, pick
∙ slapping/popping
∙ groove, rhythms and playing time
∙ time signatures, walking bass lines,
∙ arpeggios, double stops,
∙ chords & improvising
∙ writing bass lines.

All of my students learn:

Sight reading (standard notation/tablature)
∙ music theory & ear training
∙ rhythm / timing (including reading rhythms)
∙ composition/songwriting

We will focus 1/2 of the lesson on repertoire and 1/2 the lesson on technique. Many of my students text/email me a few days prior to our scheduled lesson with a song selection for the week. I focus our lesson's technical study with the song in mind. It has proven to be very effective and makes the technique and theory are less "boring."

Studio Equipment
I have (7) guitars: including (4) electric, (2) acoustic/electric, & (3) electric bass
(2) tube guitar amplifiers, and various guitar effects pedals.

(1) full-size 88-key MIDI keyboard, and (1) Arturia MINILAB MIDI controller.

Also, I have an assortment of industry standard dynamic & condenser microphones for live performance and recording applications.

DAW recording software (Pro Tools 12.x, Logic 10.x, Ableton Live)
software synthesizers by Arturia, Fabfilter, Native Instruments, Spectrasonics, Steven Slate, Toontrack and more. I use plugin effects by Izotope, Fabfilter, Plugin Alliance and Universal Audio and Waves for many of my lessons and recording projects.

Travel Equipment
I can provide a guitar, videos, music recording, music workbooks and everything else a student may need. Students are only expected to bring a desire to learn. :)


I am a performer with a ton of touring/stage experience, a composer who understands the art of writing and a producer who is fluent in the latest recording technology. In addition to technical studies, my students receive performance coaching/career development. I will help you to find your unique voice, a polished and distinct sound, and your true personality as an artist. I am 100% committed to making you a success!

I will ignite a new, or recharge/rekindle your passion for music, and to sing/play the music you love a lot better!

Eric is great and is a huge part of my growth as a singer. I've been taking lessons from him for years - initially we worked on exercises and the basics of placement and pitch, and have now moved on to applying it to different song styles. He's always up for whatever kind of music I want to do, and in even one lesson has helped make a huge difference in recreating the singing style of my favorite songs. Would highly recommend!

Eric was really helpful. I had never taken vocal lessons before despite singing in various musical projects over the years. He helped me gain control of my voice, taught me warm ups and put me in a better place vocally for both recording and playing live.

About Oliver H.

Chicago, IL

View Full Profile

I am here to demystify the music world--with my teaching methods any student can accomplish their dreams! First, we will start with simple techniques to embark on your musical journey and work our way towards our lofty musical goals together.

Learning guitar requires a lot of patience and a good attitude. I focus on fundamental exercises to help any beginner guitar player reach an intermediate level. I cater my lessons to learn tunes that my students care about and love. I let them guide the work!

About Oliver
I specialize in upright bass, jazz bass, funk bass, bass technique, and rhythm. I will inspire a positive attitude and good practice habits that will help any student succeed. I’ve extensively studied jazz, latin jazz, funk, rock music, hip hop, bluegrass, folk, and composition.

I can also teach guitar, piano, drums, and voice. As a mulit-instrumentalist, jamming with my students is a priority. Being able to play with other musicians is one of the best feelings you’ll ever experience. I’m happy to take you there!

Recently, I helped one of my bass players get a scholarship to go to Berklee Summer Camp to study music.

I am very excited to continue my teaching on TakeLessons. I look forward to helping new students to become the musician of their dreams.

I've been playing professionally in Chicago for five years where I play up
right for a classical chamber pop group called the Nine Worlds Ensemble and for a jazz group with Frank Catalano, a popular Chicago sax-man. I co-managed, played upright bass, and sang for an ambient-folk band, Sedgewick, based in Chicago. I've played upright bass in the Frank Catalano and Jimmy Chamberlin (drummer for Smashing Pumpkins) super group and Bowmanville.

I am currently dreaming up my own jazz-inspired project called the ohm trio. Working on my debut record under my solo name ohm. Be on the look out!

All qualities that truly make him the best instructor. She is learning quickly and really looks forward to her guitar lessons each week. So happy that we found him!

Oliver is very patient with my teenage son. He had a very basic understanding of music when he started with taking lessons with Oliver, and I've seen the upward transition in both passion and skills in a matter of few months.

Renee is incredible! The only thing I knew before starting was how to play Happy Birthday, with 1 hand, lol. But after 2 months, I was comfortable enough to play in church a little and after 4 months, the church began to ask me to participate more and I began playing for children in Sunday school! I was amazed at how much I learned and she let me guide the genre I really wanted to play and she was sooo encouraging, it was like I had a personal choice checking in and giving me encouraging tips and tricks! I’m so glad I choose her and I’d certainly recommend her. A++++💯☑️

As an adult, I’ve always wanted to play the piano but was skeptical that I couldn’t learn. Very impressed that she made a curriculum specific to my needs. I’m still taking lessons and intend to continue

About Mario Q.

Homestead, PA

Learn to play like your favorite musicians! From hard rock to jazz and everything in-between. I have been playing, teaching and performing for over 20 years and am currently a professional touring musician. I learned from some of the best instructors while at Berklee and have developed a very unique way of teaching. Instead of learning right out of a book, I teach you real world applications that you can take directly from your lesson to the stage (or your practice room). We will focus on your strengths and tastes and develop a style that fits what you love about music. Hope to hear from you soon!

About Mario
I've been playing guitar for 31 years and been a professional musician and recording/mix engineer for over 23 years.

After attending Berklee College of Music for jazz guitar and composition, I moved to San Diego and opened a recording studio, where I recorded and produced over 200 different artists.

Throughout my career I have taught private guitar and bass lessons to students of all ages and skill levels. Seeing people develop their own style and grow as musicians, is one of the things that brings me the most joy.

I am now in a nationally known touring band and travel about 5 months out of the year performing across the US and Europe.
