Mark is a great instructor. Chill dude and lots of fun to work with. Loads of musical knowledge, and a ton on handy tips. If you ask nicely, he'll even teach you to play the uke behind your back or with your teeth.

Mark is an awesome instructor who makes learning the ukulele fun. I feel like I've already learned so much in the 7 classes I've taken. He is patient, creative, and easy to learn from.

Barbara is an excellent teacher. She is very encouraging and positive. She makes the process fun by focusing on learning songs and allowing the student to pick the songs the student wants to learn. We focus on the basics--playing the right chords, singing on key and choosing a strumming pattern that fits the song. In the several months we have been working together I have found that I have improved dramatically in all three areas. Previously, on my own I had a great deal of trouble making progress. In addition to learning to play the guitar she has helped me tremendously with singing, which I never thought I could do at all. I have really enjoyed the experience.

I cover guitar basics, theory and technique, but with guitar I like to focus the lessons around songs which the student and/or I choose.

I teach various styles, on acoustic or electric (with or without pedals) Also, if you're a great singer but would like to learn how to play and sing at the same time I can help you with that as well!

About Ramona

I'm a professional musician and audio engineer. I'm a classically trained pianist and I offer lessons in piano, guitar, voice, music theory, music recording, music performance and songwriting. I received my music education from The Brooklyn Music School, Cornell University and the The Institute

"As I became interested in the idea of learning how to play guitar I started out and made it clear that I had absolutely no knowledge of anything regarding anything. I had the dreadful thought that I would become quickly disinterested since I had nightmares of having to play Mary had a little lamb for a month or make next to no progress in my lessons. After my first lesson I was completely wrong. Chase's ethic and method as a teacher highly impressed me as a student since he doesn't really have a lesson plan but builds one around you as an individual.He has visual representations that he gives with each new thing that way if you're like me where forgetting is a terrible curse bestowed upon you, you can refer back to it by looking at the paper things and the comments/scribbles he would make in areas you needed to put more attention towards. After each lesson Chase had the ability to shove an immense amount of knowledge in 30 minutes rather than a whole week for what I would think would be the average teacher, not only was he teaching me how to strum a chord or barre a pattern but in between he would give me detailed explanations on why each group sounds good together or why the sounds gives us a type of emotion when played as only a few examples. All in all I was never bored in any topic we decided to address that day. That was a fun part, was that each day it was something new and he taught you not what he felt like teaching but where you were as a student, if you were progressing in some areas that allowed you to move on but still need more practice on something else he wouldn't have you stay in one spot until you perfected it, he would help you with the area that was troublesome and teach you a new topic if you felt ready. Chase never rushes which was highly appreciated since learning an instrument can cause frustration which could lead to a feeling of hopelessness and eventually discouragement. THIS LEADS TO ANOTHER NOTE!! HIS PATIENCE IS HIS GREATEST QUALITY!! I can't recall how many times I had instances where I would've slapped myself acros the face for being incompetent and unteachable or just a hopeless cretin LOL. He never gets annoyed or impatient and on the contrary encourages you to make mistakes since they eventually allow you to form new techniques. That attitude is also what made his improvisation lesson such a confidence booster since instead of creating a planned session, he gives you scales to practice so that when improv time comes around you can make your own little pattern on the spot and not have to worry whether you suck or not. The point was to play in the moment and disregard any thought of your mess ups or how bad you sound, eventually these sessions became easier since you forget about judgement. His flexibility schedule wise was also awesome, as a high schooler with a part/full time job there were occasions where I was forced to change our designated day for the week due to some ridiculous excuse my sucky coworkers had, so it's very appreciated how willing he is to work with your personal life. IN CONCLUSION SINCE I FEEL LIKE I'M TYPING A NOVEL I would highly recommend anyone to allow chase to be their private instructor his personality is great, his ethics are great, and his entire being is great."

"Dave M. proves you can teach an old dog new tricks

I am a 66 year old retired IT professional that has a passion for guitar playing. During my working years I did not have the time to indulge my desire to learn how to play. After dabbling with self instruction and a few music store instructors these past few years of retirement I finally found a teacher truly committed to his students. I feel like for the first time I am making progress and learning how to play guitar. Dave is enthusiastic and thorough with his lessons and a true professional in his craft. He has instilled me with an infectious desire to move forward and I can't wait for the next lesson to come around. I highly recommend him and his approach to other potential students young or old."
