Private Guitar Teacher

I've been teaching guitar for over eight years. I've previously been a part of two bands during my formative years and recently have been a session guitar player for four upcoming indie rock, alternative, and R&B/Soul albums.
For children and beginners, I use the Mel Bay publication Children's Guitar Chord Book as well as Hal Leonard's Guitar Method series. I also apply basic music theory that includes learning the Circle of Fifths and basic reading of sheet music.

For intermediate guitar players, I utilize the Gibson's Learn and Master Guitar series to teach Power Chord Formation and Delivery, Fingerpicking, Pentatonic Scales, Reading Tabulature, and tackling some of classic rock and jazz's favorite tunes.

For guitar lessons at my studio, I leverage Guitar Pro to project and display tabs and play-alongs with ease. For in-home lessons, I use the software for select lessons as we begin song selection and play-alongs.

I can't wait to rock out with you as you find your inner ...

Private Guitar Teacher

Guitar was my first instrument, the one that set me off on my musical journey, and guitar lessons were what helped me develop my passion for music. My goal now is to inspire a love for music in others and guide those who are seeking a career in music. I am a patient teacher well versed in classic rock, pop, blues, acoustic, metal, funk, and r&b. I also teach jazz and classical guitar, and can prepare those planning to attend college for music. In lessons we will develop a personalized lesson plan that best suits your goals, whether you’d like to learn your favorite song or prepare an audition/jury piece. Music theory will be incorporated as it pertains to your overall goal, and music lessons will center around tablature as well as lead sheets, playing by ear, and traditional music notation. Concepts like the circle of fifths, chord progressions, scale theory, improvisation, and transposition will all be covered. Included in the cost of lessons are all printed materials, play along ...

Ive really enjoyed my experiences with Josh. He is well versed in all styles of composition and specializes in more modern avant-garde styles. Our lessons in modern counterpoint have really improved my harmonizations skills and expanded what I thought was capable for chords in a band setting.(i.e. jazz big band, concert band, orchestra, etc.)

Josh R. is extremely helpful and intuitive. He was extremely helpful during my time with him. He is hard working, dependable and creative. I would definitely recommend him!

My time with Rich was really strong. I took lessons from Rich for a short while when living in Connecticut. The time I spent with him was VERY helpful to me as a novice guitar player. Rich has an unbelievable knowledge of the instrument and is quite an accomplished player. He is a really strong instructor and genuinely wants his students to get better.

In short, Rich is a very talented instructor/player and I would definitely take lessons from him again.

The first lesson is fun, its just like I'm talking to my long time friend that I haven't seen for a very long time, I feel like learning how to play a guitar is not hard at all, you just need the right person to guide you through it, and that is Daniel.
