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.

I have been teaching guitar full time from very young age its been about 12 years. and I have been helping many individuals to achieve their musical goals. I would encourage my students to learn essential elements of music properly and build the proper foundation from the start. building the good foundation doesn't mean to be boring it can be really fun at the same time. when you understand and be able to see the use of it in the process.

Zach is awesome! My 15yo daughter has been loving her lessons and is excited to show us what she has learned after every lesson. She picked up the guitar herself about six months ago and after learning some basics from YouTube she asked if she could have lessons to get to the next level. She will definitely be continuing her weekly lessons with Zach for as long as she wants. We love hearing her practice every day and are excited that she is learning to play the music she listens to and has a passion for.

Zac was a great instructor.
Renay F.
Zach is a great teacher! He has been teaching my son (HS Junior) piano since November and from the start, Zach has been very easy to work with, a good balance of encouragement while challenging Noah to improve his skill level. Definitely recommend :)

The guitar is a versatile instrument. With my help, you will learn the meaning of chord progressions, chord shapes, scaling, improvisation, and rhythm. Learning how to listen is also something that is invaluable to any musician, which is also something that I will also cover in our lessons.

Online Guitar Teacher

Transcend the instrument and be able to play with anything. Learn your favorite tunes by ear and on the guitar. That is what I focus on. From beginning rudiments all the way through completely breaking down and conceptualizing the fretboard.

I've been playing for 20 years and have studied jazz at Peabody Conservatory and Berklee College of Music. However, I have played in bluegrass, rock, funk, hip hop and klezmer bands, as well.

I try to create an individual approach for each student because every person learns uniquely. I work with people on skills that apply to music at large, as well as the guitar 🎸. My goal is to help a student learn how to learn on their own, and provide the tools to do so.

De Marcus R.
Betty is an excellent instructor. She makes learning exciting and practical. With no guitar experience, I've learned basic guitar chords, a blues chord progression, and pentatonic scales, in only 3 weeks. Which set the foundation for me to began learning my first guitar song. Betty is a real musician, and her passion for the craft will inspire you to want to learn and become better. If you want to learn from the best, you want to learn from Betty.

Betty was very friendly and knowledgeable,
