GREAT TEACHER!!!

My daughters first online lessons and a wonderful experience! Ruben is very engaging, friendly and knowledgeable. He is easy to contact, accommodating and quick to respond to questions. Would highly recommend!
Kevin and Ella M.
My 9-year-old daughter and 11-year-old son have been taking uke lessons for 3 weeks now and they really enjoy Ruben's style of teaching; so do we. He provides a great combination of making it fun while also really teaching them the foundations of music. They are already reading and writing some music and they enjoy doing their music homework. Most important, they are having fun at the lessons and while practicing at home.

Learn any song you want from any time. I have a good ear and can pick any song off a CD or YouTube. I can then write it out for you and teach it to you in any key. Don't be afraid, I like to use Tablature so you don't need to be able to read music.

Do you want to play Lead Guitar? I can teach you all the scales, arpeggios & Pentatonics that you need to know to become a rock 'n' roll guitar god!

Hi, I’m Britta! I’ve been playing piano since before I can remember. I picked up guitar as a teen. I have been teaching piano lessons since 2016 and guitar since 2018. I approach music lessons with flexibility. The joy of working one-on-one is that we can adjust the lesson to whatever the student brings to the table each time. Practiced a lot? Excellent! Show me what you can do. Having a difficult time with something? Not a problem; let me help. Feeling fatigued? It’s okay; I understand. We’ll take it a tad easier today. I’m sensitive to my students’ needs, and I’m more than happy to make learning an instrument accessible, whatever is going on.

Generally, we start with a warm-up. Then, we proceed to go over the songs the student has been practicing since last time. I provide feedback and coaching. When we’re ready, we move on to new music and assign it for practice. I’m your guide as the music gets progressively more challenging. When time allows, we have several miscellaneous ...

Guitar is among the most intimate performance instruments. Whether strumming it for rock 'n roll or caressing its strings for folk or classical music, it evokes an instantly recognizable emotional response. It's become the ideal instrument for expressing the vulnerability and uncertainty of love, the brief sting of agony, or any existential expression.

It's portable. It's loud enough to be heard in a crowd of voices, but quiet enough to be practiced in your bedroom. Musically its fretboard is based on the piano's chromatic scale. Its six strings accommodate both simple and complex voicing, depending on the player's skill or desired effect.

As a classically trained musician with 25 years of guitar performance experience in pop, folk, and rock music, I offer a range of styles, techniques, and comprehensive approaches to understanding and mastering this historic instrument, depending on your personal preferences. My focus is on exploration, discovery, and learner-directed lessons. My ...

The "Real World" style. Chords - Riffs - Scales - Songs - Basic Theory - Tabs - which can branch out into song writing and recording techniques. I start out with the basics and then focus on switching - getting your fingers moving/stretching - getting them ready for scales and songs. Different patterns and techniques of picking and strumming. Understanding timing and attention to movement. I don't teach traditional guitar musical notes with staff reading. Guitar Tabs I will teach you and easy exercises. For advanced beginners to intermediate I can proceed with what you need help with next by hearing your goals and what you'd like to cover whether it's more techniques - chords - playing style - song writing - techniques for studio playing.

I'm a rock recording artist that has been doing music full time for 10 years opening for national artists, playing gigs and recording here in Upstate NY. I'm an easy going instructor teaching the "real world" way of learning acoustic or electric ...

"You make lessons fun....

From age 6 until high school I took piano lessons. But guitar was always an unexplored desire. I started taking lessons with Steve a few weeks ago. From the very beginning he has been just so easy and comfortable to work with. He willingly adapts his style of coaching to my specific needs as a student, learner and musician. He's so strong in his fundamentals that I can pick the music and he builds lessons around my choices. Really makes me look forward to my own practicing and even more to my next lesson. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Steve, for bringing music back into my life."
