Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

All ages are welcome! I've been playing guitar for 15 years, and been involved in multiple groups and bands (playing guitar, bass, drumset, marching drums, and sometimes vocals) since 2008. I teach fundamentals of playing (finger-picking or with a pick), how to read tabs, alternate tunings, chord structure, the importance of scales, and can help you learn to pick up your favorite songs just by listening to them! If you are interested, I can also show you how to get started on recording your own music!

HI guys! I'm Ian, and I would love to play music with you. I've been playing guitar since I was 10 and began giving lessons at my local guitar shop when I was 15.

Ian is an incredible music teacher. He has that rare combination of TOTAL mastery over all things technique and theory along with the ability to share the information in an understandable, fun and engaging way. I've been a professional musician for over 15 years and since working with Ian i've been hitting new levels of achievement. If you're looking for a teacher, it doesn't get any better.

Great. Knowledgable teacher

Seemed a little disorganized. It might have been part of the "getting to know me" process and what I wanted to accomplish. The hour went by very fast!

I have taken lessons from Benjamin, and found him to be an excellent teacher. If you are looking for someone to teach you bass, or guitar you can't find a more patient teacher. I would recommend him to anyone seeking lessons.

If you're looking for lessons in Acoustic Guitar, then you've come to the right place. I will teach elementary guitar with a great emphasis on theory and applied methods. My background includes piano lessons that I received as a youngster, and guitar lessons held at various places after that.

About Larry

First off, I want to mention something that potential Philadelphian students should be aware of. I can only go to certain sections of the city, and I can only give you lessons on weekday afternoons between 12-2pm. Sorry, no evening classes. I'll need time to travel between New Jersey and Pennsylvan

Larry came well prepared and was very informative. I’ve never played the guitar before so Larry had to start from ground zero. At the end of the lesson I felt I had learned not just about playing the guitar but music in general. It was a great start!
Austin
very informative and mellow....starting with basics and slowly getting to know the speed I need to grasp it! Happy to have Larry in our home, can't wait for next lesson.

My tuition brings:

Personalized, well prepared, fun and practical lessons.

Continuation, each class builds on previously learned material.

Progress checks using memos taken during teaching.

My students know me for my patience, attention to detail, and positive reinforcement, but also equally for placing importance on the joy of learning.

I have been studying guitar privately for 27 years, have taught for 20 years and I am qualified to teach jazz/pop/rock guitar, improvisation, and theory. I graduated from the music performance program at Queensborough Community College. At Q.C.C. I was fortunate to receive formal training in ear training/ sight singing I-IV, music theory I-IV, convocation performance, performance juries, as well as receiving private lessons focused on jazz improvisation.

I majored in guitar performance concentrating on jazz improvisation but I also have been studying guitar privately for around 27 years with a strong emphasis on rock, blues, and pop.

Steve is teaching my son and we are both so happy with his teaching. My son is not a beginner and was looking for a teacher to help him take the next step on the guitar. They have been working on scales, intervals, improvisation, chords and more. I really appreciate how he gives my son clear instructions on what to review for the next class and then checks to make sure progress was made before moving on. Great teacher, highly recommend.
