About Richard

I have studied, performed and taught music for over 30 years. Accordion was my first instrument at age 7 which was a great introduction to the keyboard, melody and harmony. That was followed by guitar and other stringed instruments (Banjo, Ukulele) as well as drums. I studied with great teachers

Richard is an excellent teacher! He is talented and a great person! I felt he genuinely cared about my goals and helped me achieve them efficiently and had a lot of fun at the same time. I highly recommend Richard!
Averie S.
Richard was great! Looking forward to more lessons for my daughter!
Adrienne
We are 2 beginners taking the class together. We have taken 3 lessons. Rich is teaching us finger strengthening exercises, chords and notes which we can use to play songs, and encouraging us to find melodies using just the strings. The lesson flies by and already we can see our improvement. Last summer I tried to teach myself using YouTube and I have learned so much more in 3 weeks than I learned all summer. He is upbeat and positive. I would recommend him as a ukulele teacher.

We are so thankful we found Patrick! Patrick is a very effective teacher who’s able to relate and motivate students. Our daughter was loosing interest in playing piano due to her former teacher’s approach. Now she’s back to practicing because she wants to and is so excited to see Patrick each week. We are very greatful that she’s back to loving piano and continuing to learn.
Eric
Patrick is a great teacher, and very patient. I've never learned how to sing or read music before, and he teaches at a pace that's good for me. I highly recommend him whether you're an adult or you're considering enrolling your child.

About Hissael

I have been teaching and tutoring students for 6 years now. I teach math and guitar. The thing I love most about my teaching isn't the end result of a student's passing report card or a student's accomplishment of learning a difficult musical piece.

Having played hundreds of gigs and recorded thousands of hours on countless records, from the famed Abbey Road Studios in London to the Village Recorder here in LA, I have a vast body of experience of playing in all styles to help you with the particular skill you want to advance in.
Everyone has their own style with guitar, it's a very personal instrument in that regard. The key is understanding what my students want to achieve and helping them get there in their own way

Felt like we were on the same page, and not intimidated when my playing was pretty bad haha. Very glad she's my teacher."

"Great teacher!

He's not only a great teacher but an amazing guitarist as well. I've been taking lessons from him for a couple of years now. He truly has a deep passion for music and wants to be able to share that same passion with others. He's very patient and focused on helping you develop as a musician. He's very well organized, setting up lesson plans dedicated to your needs whether it's basic chords, scales, songs or theory. I can't ask for a better teacher."

"Carla has escalated both my acoustic and electric guitar playing to unexpected levels, from just strumming songs to actually including licks, riffs, and leads to sound more like the pros.
with her experience and knowledge, she has filled in critical lapses in my musical theory. Later, I decided to learn short-scale bass, and Carla was right there to show me the way.
If you've EVER wanted to learn (or pick back again) any style of guitar, bass, electric, acoustic, keyboard, piano, ukulele, kazoo, (or whatever) contact Carla ASAP for lessons. She gives lessons to students all across the USA, ONLINE through Skype, Zoom, FaceTime, or any conference app you want to use, at your convenience, NEVER needing to drive through Jersey, and never needing to leave your home.
She custom tailors lessons to all levels. Great experience! Students even "Zoom" in to perform at her recitals on a big screen TV. Give her a call, she's the rare, amazing, patient teacher you've been searching for. You won't be disappointed."
