Great friendly instructor!

Matt continues to challenge me. His teaching methods are great - he doesn't just teach techniques, he immediately puts techniques to work by applying them to a song I would like to learn. He is also very good about explaining the reasoning behind certain techniques/habits.

Private Guitar Teacher

Hi!

I’ve been playing guitar for 10 years, starting from a shredhead, evolving to a jazzboy, and ending up as a who knows what. I got my BS in Contemporary Music Studies at SUNY New Paltz studying with Mark Dziuba, one of the baddest dudes around.

I’ve played in bands ranging from funk, straight-ahead and gypsy jazz to indie and surf rock. When it comes to music my mind is totally open; If you’re interested in it, I am interested.

About Tony

Working from home for the past 8 months has made me stir-crazy. I decided I needed a hobby. I had an old acoustic guitar that was gathering dust. I had tried to learn to play on my own years ago by reading a book, but gave up quickly. It didnt take long to realize that playing the guitar requires hand manipulations that are at times completely foreign to the human body. Tony pretty much showed me that I was taking the wrong approach from the start. What I appreciated the most is that Tony was able to guide me to getting to a point in just a couple of sessions where I could actually play something recognizable. Tony is a nice guy, very knowledgeable, respectful, and PATIENT (thank god).

Private Guitar Teacher

Each student's training program is uniquely based on his/her personal goals. This depends on individual needs to include teaching basic technique, music theory, chord inversions, scales, improvisation, site reading and/or ear training as part of the process.

Beginners, intermediate and advanced level musicians are encouraged to sign up to increase their playing skills and/or knowledge of marketing and branding.

Remember... becoming a fluent musician requires practice, practice and more practice!

This International guitarist is now offering online music lessons. With more than forty years of experience, he has performed with many well-known artists including grammy-nominated celebrities and others such as Freddie Jackson, Regina Belle, EU, Angela Bofill, Alyson Williams, Mya, Syleena Johnson

Great learning experience with Eric.

I can't say enough good things about Earl's instruction. He's extremely knowledgeable and talented and yet responsive, inspiring, and kind. Rather than applying a narrow and rigid approach to teaching, lessons are built around my abilities and interests and he has taught me new ways of looking at music and playing guitar. I feel very fortunate to be one of his students.

Great experience! Looking forward to more.

"Kevin is an excellent guitar player! I’ve had a few jam sessions with him at his studio playing the keys as he played guitar and drums. He taught me some chords on the guitar and I picked them up so easily. I thought immediately, “This guys knows what he’s doing!” He plays Guitar, Bass, and Drums, and I definitely recommend learning from him."

Jesse is a professional and a fabulous musician and we feel fortunate to have him come to our home to teach our son. Jesse arrives on time, is dedicated and inspirational, and makes sure to schedule make up lessons when needed."

"Danny is probably the sweetest most patient teacher i've ever had the pleasure of learning from. Whenever I felt flustered Danny would calm me and go over the lesson from top to bottom until I was comfortable. He is an excellent source of musical inspiration as well. 10/10 Would take lessons from in the future"

"I started taking lessons with Ahmad a couple of months ago and would recommend him for anyone who wants to learn guitar. You get homework and it gets reviewed at the beginning of each lesson. He tailors exercises based on what you like to play and builds the course based on your goals. I can already notice a significant improvement in my playing and whole understanding of the instrument.

He's a great teacher, very charismatic and energetic."

"William is an awesome teacher. We took our son to take lessons with him and it was a huge upgrade from the places we were going before. The price, amount of time and quality of the lessons our son got with Williams was phenomenal. Williams was well organized, easy to get along with and gave honest feedback that was needed when things were not being done as expected. I would highly recommend his services and look forward working with him again when our daughter decides to take lessons."
