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!

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!

First and above all, the guitar is FUN. But it can be a challenge to describe all that a guitar is to a beginner. A guitar can be played and used to express any emotion and can become a friend. In addition to conventional music notation, guitars can be learned more easily using a special system called tablature.

I like to ask what the student is wanting to accomplish on the guitar. What kind of music they like, how they want to utilize the instrument, picking, strumming, fingerstyle, etc. I can then structure lessons to help them accomplish their goals.

About Roger

I have been playing guitar for 55 years and was fortunate to have an excellent teacher when I was young. The guitar is a wonderful instrument and tool for expression but mostly FUN. I hope we can use it to bring happiness into your life.

"My kids have been learning from Jesse for nearly two years now and we are so grateful to have found him. They had already taken a few years of ukulele, and so wanted to branch out to guitar. Now, they have started exploring several instruments (electric guitar, drum, keyboard, bass guitar/ukulele) and they look forward to their private lessons and band lesson every week. Jesse is a gem - he gives students a chance to direct their own interests in learning music (they suggest their own song choices to learn from), and encourages them to be responsible with the equipment and their practices. My kids really look up to him, and he is a fantastic role model - a great combination of skill, dedication, and teaching, but also really fun-loving. You can tell that he really loves what he does. He is also very professional and responsible, and an incredibly nice person. Highly recommended without reservation."
