Private Guitar Teacher

Hey there!
My passions are technique and accuracy; by perfecting technique comes a deeper understanding of theory. I have lots of teaching methods that will encourage you to play your favorite songs and styles with the sounds you like.
I'll focus on the very basics of guitar theory in order to get to a higher level of understanding music theory.
I will challenge you! We will have lots of fun and you will see, hear, and feel your own improvements with my teachings.

About Shai

If you are fascinated about guitar technique and awesome weird sounds that you can do with your guitar, you will like having lessons with me. I began as a classical guitar player, studying traditional classical pieces and applying them to my guitar. During that time I began to explore and became

If you want to get started with guitar, I'm the one you've been looking for. I'll get you started with basic theory, then I'll gradually move on to more advanced topics. I have a good background in this subject. I've actually taught this subject to a student who already had seven years experience; he didn't know how to put chords together in the right way. Guitar can be fun!

About Larry

First off, I want to mention something that potential Philadelphian students should be aware of. I can only go to certain sections of the city, and I can only give you lessons on weekday afternoons between 12-2pm. Sorry, no evening classes. I'll need time to travel between New Jersey and Pennsylvan

Larry came well prepared and was very informative. I’ve never played the guitar before so Larry had to start from ground zero. At the end of the lesson I felt I had learned not just about playing the guitar but music in general. It was a great start!
Austin
very informative and mellow....starting with basics and slowly getting to know the speed I need to grasp it! Happy to have Larry in our home, can't wait for next lesson.

Online Guitar Teacher

I've been playing guitar, composing multi-instrumental music, producing music, playing in professional and local bands, and have been an active studio session player for 17 years.
I have been teaching guitar for just as long, and helped many students understand break-through concepts and acquire skills that other teachers were unable to.
I have taught total and complete beginners to play their favorite song after 2 weeks, with 1 hour per day practice time. I taught my best friend and my brother to play guitar, both are now in professional touring bands.

About Peter

I have been composing and producing music for 20+ years. Since I got my first guitar at 13, I've been playing in bands, writing, recording & mixing songs. Touring with bands throughout the U.S. And personally learning from my network of industry veterans who have worked with bands such as: The Roll

Peter seems like at nice guy with a true passion for music. In a short amount of time, he was able to share a good place to start with in guitar. Thanks Peter!
George
I had a great time learning how to play guitar and am on my way to playing my favorite songs! Would highly recommend!!
Joseph
I learned everything I know about guitar from Peter, because of him I have an excellent understanding of not only how to play guitar, but how to structure and write music. This has led me to play live music and jam with musicians on a regular basis. He is an amazing guitar instructor, and can teach you whatever you want to learn — I highly recommend him.

Wonderful, great experience!

Laura
Super Knowledgable. Psyched to learn more.
Dennis
Derek is a very knowledgable instructor, easy to talk to, and I found his teaching technique is very motivating. He set realistic practice goals for the next session, which will require me to do my part, but that's the reason we show up, to learn how to play a musical instrument.
I highly recommend him.

I was stuck in a place where I wasn't sure what I should be focused on and he immediately was able to correct my technique and help me progress week after week. You can only learn so much from apps or YouTube videos. Getting weekly training has made guitar really enjoyable again."

"Damien is the best instructor I have ever had and I took lessons from multiple teachers for over 15 years for piano, keyboards, and guitar. He is extremely knowledgeable, talented, and personable. He has a structured and comprehensive approach to music theory and teaches from a socratic method which I love, although he tailors his approach to fit each student's personality and skill level. I have had instructors in the past who taught by ear and could not increase my knowledge base or skill level in reading music and understanding music theory. Damien's style and approach is driven by his education and experience and is the best I have ever encountered. If you want to just have a little fun learning a few chords and songs, or you want to become an accomplished musician, he is the best choice."
