We just had our first lesson with Keith. Keith is a wonderful instructor. He is very patient to 6 years old daughter and he tailors the lesson to fit her. He challenges her without making her feel uncomfortable.

My daughter especially likes when Keith makes up accompaniment parts to play along with her songs. She enjoyed her first lesson so much that she kept playing the new tunes she learned and looking them

Keith is very exacting and wants me to do it right. Even if I know how to read music and meter, ifI made a mistake because I couldn't find the place on the guitar, he would make me start over. Perfect for me

I learned a lot in my first lesson with Brian. He clearly knows the guitar inside and out. The pace was on the faster side, but he answered all my questions about technique and theory. Beyond what I wanted to focus on (technique), he's laying a solid foundation for theory so that I don't have go rely on the capo or online tabs as much. He also gave me useful scale exercises to build up finger independence and articulation. So far so good.

Brian was a great teacher! He I was well prepared and always on time. He was patient with me not remembering all the notes and simply said “it takes time” or “you’ll get it next time”.
Brianl loves music and shares that love in every lesson and in his overall teaching approach.

I taught myself blues guitar by playing along with the records of B.B. King, Eric Clapton and all the greats in between, so I know how it's done. As the author of several guitar method books, and a teacher for over 25 years, I have the materials and the experience to show you how as well.

About Paul Jared
Hi, I am a native New Yorker and a guitar player since age 13. I played in blues/rock bands throughout my teens, getting to play the legendary clubs of my Greenwich Village neighborhood. My discovery of Spanish classical guitar music occurred in college at UC Berkeley, and I graduated with a BA in Music, then spent two years playing in Europe, before returning home and forming the band Not Heaven; we played the club circuit, Danceteria to CBGB.

I also began teaching at the American Institute of Guitar in NYC, and writing guitar instruction books (still in print!). Along the way I did a Master’s in Guitar Performance at Stony Brook, and have continued to publish, perform and teach the music which inspires me.

Classical and Flamenco music are my primary involvement, as a teacher, performer and composer.

I started with Peter when I was 13 years old and continued taking weekly lessons until I was 19. In those 7 years Peter helped take my playing from an intermediate level to a near expert level. Our weekly meetings ranged from just learning new songs, music theory, or just jamming over backing tracks we would create. Peter is knowledgable in every form of music. In our years of lessons we enjoyed playing classic rock, blues, jazz, classical, and gypsy jazz. Peter was able to walk me teach me through the beginning levels of Music Theory.

Most importantly through our 7 years together, became was able to take me from a very shy musician to someone who was very confident on stage playing at different bars. Peter went from being a teacher to a very close friend as he helped me grow. Although I do not take lessons with him anymore due to being away at college, I keep in touch with Peter every time I am home.

I would highly recommend Peter to anyone at any level guitar playing. He has the patience someone needs if you're just starting out and the expertise to help take even some of the best players to the next level.

Lessons are based around each individual student's music goals. Simple practical methods for understanding and developing the fundamental skills needed to play songs you love and want to perform are the focus of each lesson. Teaching and performing music are what I'm passionate about. I have over twenty years of teaching experience with beginners and advanced students and have developed a curriculum that really works for all levels and styles while keeping things fun!

About Brian
I'm an experienced teacher with a background as a full time touring musician. I graduated from the University of Miami with a degree in Studio Music and Jazz Performance. The focus of my music career has always been playing original music with bands but teaching has always been something I've loved too.

I've studied both classical and jazz but my favorite thing to teach people is songs. I love learning new songs and writing practical simple charts that show how they work. Playing and singing together for the first time is something magical. It's an amazing feeling and helping people learn how to do it makes me happy.

I've been teaching music for over twenty years and look forward to sharing my experience and knowledge with new students.

I have been playing guitar now for 22 years. It has been a lifelong passion of mine that I would like to share with you. I like to build lessons based on music that YOU or your child enjoys listening to. I find that this approach much more rewarding and makes the motivation to practice come naturally. Most importantly I want to make sure that learning guitar is fun. Many people buy a guitar learn a few songs with power chords, get bored and then the guitar either gathers dust or ends up in a pawn shop somewhere. I not only want to teach you guitar but more importantly teach you music. I take pride in my ability to nurture passion in music which makes practicing an enjoyment rather than a chore. I will teach you or your child the foundation of music theory, chords, rhythm, scales, soloing, music genres all personalized to you. I can teach anyone from grade school to adulthood. All you need is a guitar and a willingness to learn. I can also teach beginner level piano. I hope to be ...

About Maxwell

I began playing when I was 8 years old and over the course of the next 22 years improved through private lessons, playing guitar in high school band, amateur rock bands as a teenager as well as studying some music theory at Brooklyn College. I am well versed in a wide array of musical genres and can tailor my lessons to your specific tastes and needs while still covering the fundamental techniques, theory, ear training and skills necessary to meet your musical goals.

I am 35 years old and recently decided about learning how to play acoustic guitar; went online and after little search found Max and his classes.
From initial contact Max was very friendly, approachable and helpful.
He assisted me with and gave me good advise on purchase of my first guitar, before us even meeting in person and starting first lesson.
He is very knowledgeable about music in general and I immediately knew, that I chose the right person for the task. I have been taking his lessons once a week for almost 4 months now and feel more and more confident that one day I can master to actually play some songs I like. I am always taking/learning something new from our lessons, he would give me great feedback and homework to practice or focus on at home. He is very patient and understanding. Even with my limited time to practice at home I still feel like we're doing progress every time during the lesson. I very much recommend Max to anyone who is starting or is advanced and want to get better or master some specifics, he is definitely the right person to lead you there.
Thanks Max !!!

A little about myself: I've toured and recorded professionally for the past 5 years. In that time, I've shared the stage with Grammy-winning artists and had my music compositions featured in video games and television. While enrolled at Berklee College of Music, I studied the guitar as my principal instrument. I'm versatile in all styles but have a staggering amount of experience as a rock guitarist and singer/songwriter.

Guitar lessons with me include the following: We'll talk about first and foremost how music is a part of their life, and then determine goals. I want to unlock your PASSION for why you want to master this instrument! The first lesson is also where I assess music tastes and where they are drawn stylistically to become a better player. This is also where I learn if they have previous playing experience, any current strengths/weaknesses, or problems with the guitar in the past. I’ll also pay close attention to form and catch any bad or good playing habits. I like to ...
