Private Guitar Teacher

If you are just starting out with the guitar, I am your 'gal'! I make learning the basics of the strings, the tuning, and the music really fun! but as with learning any new language or instrument, the follow up requisite practice and purchase/download of recommended supplementary materials is totally up to you, the student. If you practice what I show you in each lesson every day, you will notice progress!

About Tamari (Tamara)

Hi, there! I'm Tamara and I can't wait to meet you! On social media and for those who are more familiar, I'm Tamari. We all learn in different ways; some are more visual; others, auditory; some, kinesthetic--I combine a number of different modalities in my teaching, including direct feed

Tamari is a remarkably accommodating teacher. Uses instructional strategies that are effective and appropriate. Also, presents new material clearly and logically. Demonstrates enthusiasm and interest in lesson presentation. My daughter loves learning classical piano with Tamari.
Rhea Farbman
I have known Tamari professionally for fifteen years.
She is an excellent music teacher for piano and voice. Her expertise is noticeable as she patiently meets her student at his/her level and guides that student to the next step.
The process is perfect for any student, even if developmentally challenged and for any age. I highly recommend Tamari.

I've been consistent weekly taking yoga lessons from Tamari at the Y in Canaan CT. I try not to miss it. She's a compassionate and caring yoga teacher and will trailer her classes to fit your needs. Her classes are good for newbies and seniors and those who want a simple class. No athletics. Hatha Yoga are basic yoga stretches that will make you feel good after participating . My aches and pains are gone after each session. To be continued....

Gave me beginner tips, and pro tricks. Taught me the basics in how to my technically proficient, but also gave me lessons on how to sound awesome to motivate. This wasn't a teacher who would just do drills all day. It was "here's the chords and methods to play your favorite songs". Motivated me to learn. Great teacher 10/10
Tristan
I found Kai's guitar lessons through a friend, but boy am I suprised! He was able to teach me the fundamentals as a newbie while keeping it engaging! Will absolutely reccomend to anyone beginner or advanced!
Matt
Best teacher ever!
I met Mr.Kai from a friend that had recommended him to me. I was nervous, at first, to be taking my very first guitar lessons. I met with Mr.Kai and immediately he made me feel at ease. He’s a very easy-going teacher and most importantly was very patient with me (I feel like i’m a slower learner). 10/10 would recommend to everyone!

Unfortunately, yesterday was my last lesson with Mark, as I am moving to Guam. I would definitely not be giving up my weekly lesson with him if that weren't the case! I've learned so much in the short couple months taking lessons from him. I would recommend him to anyone of any skill level. Very helpful and kind. :)

"BEST GUITAR INSTRUCTOR I EVER HAD!!!!

I have had a handful of guitar instructors before I came to Kyle. I have been playing guitar for probably 6 years on and off. I had a hard time sticking with it because my other instructors bored me to death and I just couldn't learn the way they taught. With Kyle though it is totally different. I have been taking lessons from him for I think over a year now and have made tons of progress. Given I already knew basics, I relearned pretty fast, but Kyle has a unique way of teaching that just works great. He teaches everyone different and does whatever he can to keep his students excited about music. Kyle has a very chilled personality and is a fun guy to be around. I would very highly recommend Kyle to anyone who is trying to learn Guitar or bass guitar."

"Of all the people I've ever taken guitar lessons with, Paul is hands down the most thorough and informative. If you have a song in mind you want to learn, then Paul is certainly your guy. But where he really shines is through his depth of knowledge behind everything you play. Instead of just mimicking your favorite song by your favorite band, he'll break them down for you to show you why the song has appeal or allure from a compositional standpoint, and he'll show you things you can add for a little flair to really make a song your own. He'll also show you all the scales you could ever ask for! Whether you're just beginning playing or you've been playing for years, I am confident that you will walk away knowing that you're a better guitar player thanks to Paul.

"Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach him how to fish and you'll feed him for his life time."

Paul will teach you "how to fish" so that you can go above and beyond your current abilities. And if you literally want to talk about fishing, then he's the guy for that too!"

"Exceptionally Tallented Teacher and Musician

Jason is a gifted player, dynamic teacher, and he motivates me to play better and challenge myself.

I've been puttering around on the guitar since I was in my early 20's. I finally started taking lessons in my early 30's. Instructors I've had in the past were fine, but never challenged me. They were content to teach me to play whatever song I was interested in but never the theory behind it. They never seemed invested in my success. With Jason, it is completely different. He brings in a great mix of playing for fun while helping me play outside my ability and comfort zone.

First, he challenges me to play better. I'm not always happy while we are running chord drills with a stopwatch, but because of it, I am better, faster, and music is a lot more enjoyable to play when you are not thinking about where chords or scales are. He is quick to support what I do correctly, but also doesn't shy away from fixing things I do wrong or bad habits that I have developed. He also mixes in regular work on improvisation skills, reading TAB, and even writing your own music or solo work.

Next, he teaches me to be more accurate. If we are working on a song that is too fast or technical, he’ll slow it down either by using software or recording a quick backing track. Then we both play and focus on accuracy. It’s always a good feeling to play all the way through a song even if it’s at 80% speed.

Finally, Jason is simply a real standup sort of guy. He is punctual, communicates with his students regularly, organizes events where students can play, and takes a real interest in his students.

I wouldn’t hesitate at all to recommend Jason to anyone of any skill or ambition level."
