Private Guitar Teacher

My students not only learn to play the guitar, but learn "why they are doing what they are doing!" I teach all ages and I am very patient. We can work as fast or as slow as you like. I believe lessons should be informative and fun at the same time. I teach each students the basics of note reading, chord theory and scales as these subjects relate to the guitar. I use varoius method books like Hal Leonard, The FJH Music, as well as method books for children.

My 13 year old daughter is taking lessons from Lin and says “she’s a pretty cool lady. I really like her”. That’s a pretty hard compliment to get from a teenager. Lin is fun and has made learning guitar a pleasure and something my daughter looks forward every week. I would highly recommend her!

Ed is an excellent piano teacher! He is kind, approachable, and great with kids. It is clear he is an experienced musician, we are most likely going to try guitar lessons with him as well!

Iasonas & Odysseas A.
Very knowledgable and enthusiastic teacher. He has a way about him that makes the lesson exciting.
Yoella & Malkiya O.
Mr Yakov is very pleasant, patient and professional. He makes learning fun. One of my daughters is very shy and particular. I was concerned for her first violin. But she ended up loving the lesson and the instructor. We did some lessons online and at his studio. During the online lesson, the connection with our internet was horrible. He could hear her playing but she couldn't hear him. Yet, patiently, he got creative and taught the lesson with my daughter through chat. The environment of the studio is comfortable. You can tell he's passionate about what he does. That left me with a great impression of him. We look forward to more lessons with him for as long as we can.
Thanks Mr Yakov!!!

Hello! I teach guitar lessons to beginners and intermediate students. I'm unique in that I apply proven learning techniques and concepts backed by cognitive psychology and neuroscience to learning the guitar. (These concepts apply to learning anything as they are universal). This will help you learn material easier, faster, and deeper and be able to retrieve it from long-term memory much more reliably. I have been playing guitar for over 35 years and have had many lessons. I know what works and what doesn't. I also know guitar/music theory which can help you immensely if you're interested. I look forward to meeting you helping you become the guitarist you want to be!

About Wayne

I'm a patient and thoughtful teacher that matches your needs and goals to the lessons you'll receive. I use advanced learning techniques based on cognitive psychology and neuroscience which means you'll learn faster, more accurately, and be able to remember more of what you learn! I create unique v

My lessons are tailored to the goals of the student whether they want to learn how to read music and music theory from the ground up, or just learn to play their favorite folk songs. Whatever road a student is interested in taking, I do my best to help them build solid technique and understand the basics to help them accomplish that goal.

"My time with Rich was really strong. I took lessons from Rich for a short while when living in Connecticut. The time I spent with him was VERY helpful to me as a novice guitar player. Rich has an unbelievable knowledge of the instrument and is quite an accomplished player. He is a really strong instructor and genuinely wants his students to get better.

In short, Rich is a very talented instructor/player and I would definitely take lessons from him again."

"Michael is a great teacher. He really cares about his students and takes teaching seriously. Currently, I am learning Jazz and Blues from him, and it is so much fun to learn new licks, theories, and applications. Michael really tries hard not to make me feel bored. He sends out weekly practice schedules after each lesson, which I think is very helpful. Overall, I think I was very fortunate that I have him as a teacher. I highly recommend Michael as your guitar teacher.
p.s. you can learn jazz and blues via Skype, which I think is super-cool."

She really takes the time to make sure you are getting a grasp on the information she is teaching you. I really wish I would have used her before going to the other instructors that I feel were only trying to make money. I would recommend this lady to anyone looking to learn the guitar or any other instrument."

But first, you'll need some important tools.  Take a look at this great list from …
