Solid guy with diverse chops. I can learn a lot from his instruction.
Itati S.
I took 5 lessons with Ed, very great instructor. I learned a lot in those few lessons. He helped with with my pitch and with my accent that I had to prepare for an audition. With his help I was accepted into my high school’s A cappella group “Madrigals” and overall I would recommend. We made it work and tried to make the best out of the situation. Great experience:)
Michael Y.
My kids thoroughly enjoyed lessons with Ed (both guitar and piano). Lessons started with my 7yo and when his brother turned 4yo, he started as well.

I have been teaching guitar for 10 years and have been a professional musician for the same amount of time. First and foremost I want my student to have fun while learning the guitar! I will base our lesson plans around the songs and styles you want to learn. I will write out easy to read chord charts, sheet music, tab, and even record video examples for you to reference when you are practicing at home. I have taught ages 5-70 and all levels of players from total beginners to college students majoring in music.

I have taught through the City College of New York, The Larchmont Music Academy, Music Box NYC, and tons of my own private students.

About Pat

I have taught lessons since 2008 and love it! I enjoy teaching all levels and truly enjoy seeing my students improve and fall in love with playing music. Teaching has been one of the most fulfilling endeavors of my life. I began playing guitar at the age of 10. With the encouragement of my father,

Pat is a top notch NYC jazz musician with an excellent teaching style. He quickly zeroed in on my current level of ability and goals and helped design a practice plan that delivered results and kept me motivated. My strongest recommendation!
Jon
Pat really knows his stuff with jazz guitar. My goal has been to study chord melody with some jazz standards and modal jazz, and Pat has a lot of ideas with chord shapes, voicings, scale choices and alternate and passing chords. I play a lot of rock tunes as well and I've found the lessons with Pat have really helped me expand how I look at playing those songs as well. As a teacher, Pat is really patient and provides really useful supplemental charts. Highly recommended.

Pat is the best guitar teacher I have ever had! Pat makes all the lessons super enjoyable, yet I still learnt a ton! Pat always explained everything super clearly and I had so much fun! I have learnt so much in the year I have been playing guitar and pat made that possible!

Whether you're the next Taylor Swift, want to rock out like Metallica, or just want to play simple folk tunes around the campfire, I'm the teacher you want! I've performed on stage and have done studio work on top of teaching on both acoustic and electric guitar. We'll cover music theory, ear training, soloing, and explore different styles of music on top of learning the songs you want to play!

About Cameron

STUDYING WITH ME: Learning guitar should be interesting and fun! While we're studying all the different aspects of the instrument, you'll also be learning how to play your favorite songs and solos! I approach each student as an individual and structure their lessons according to what I determine

Tristan
I've taken guitar lessons on and off for a while, and Cameron is hands-down the best teacher I've had. He points out specific technical good points and bad points, and offers concrete suggestions and examples for improvement. The lesson material is progressively challenging, but not overwhelming, and is targeted to the student's interests, and lessons are fun and interesting. Fantastic instructor.
Tessa
Cameron is an excellent teacher for me. I am 11 years old and have been playing for almost a year with him. He is patient and makes me stretch to be a better guitarist. He takes time to find songs at my level of learning and accommodates my tastes in music. I would recommend him for anyone who is interested in playing guitar.
Kim K.
I enjoyed my first lesson with Cameron. He explained things clearly so I could understand. Can't wait for my next lesson.

"I highly recommend Tony. He has taught both of my sons, Emmet and Connor, how to play the guitar with an emphasis on jazz and rock and learning the fundamentals needed for improvisational play. My eldest son, Emmet, began his guitar lessons in 7th or 8th grade and continued all the way through High School. Emmet commented to me that Tony was a really good teacher for his learning style and made it easy and fun. Emmet continued playing in college and used the fundamentals he learned from Tony to teach himself how to play the banjo. As a River Raft guide he was selected to be the guide on the "folk music" trip so that he could play along with the professional folk guitarist and vocalist. My second son, Connor, had played the saxophone and was in the jazz band in Middle School, and then decided he wanted to learn guitar in High School. He took lessons with Tony all through High School (9th through 12th) and learned all the chords and how to improvise. He enjoyed his lessons with Tony and progressed rather quickly. Tony knows how to teach according to each individual's needs which is very important. He customizes his lessons for students based on their interests and ability levels. He makes the lessons fun and interesting. I highly recommend Tony."

"Tom and I have had 2 sessions together now and I feel great about how they have gone. I have taken a few guitar lessons in the past with another instructor and he just does not compair to Tom's style of instruction. What I mean by that is Tom was able to assess exactly where my skill level, understanding, and rate of retension rather quickly apposed to waisting my time we were able to start exactly where I needed to. From there, I was astonished with how much knowledge Tom has of music theory and his skill of explaining it each step of the way. I'm excited to continue my lesssons with him! I already feel I'm going to be exonentially better in no time at all :)"

"I have taken acoustic and electric guitar lessons with Jared for several years. Through my own experience and my observation of Jared with other students, I would describe Jared as patient, encouraging, courteous, and respectful. His knowledge and facility with guitar-playing styles and techniques is vast. His understanding of music theory is infectious. He will proceed at your pace, not his. He makes a genuine effort to help his students identify and achieve their goals--and he's genuinely happy when they do. In short, Jared is an exemplary teacher. Highly recommended!"
