Teaching music is truly one of my passions. Each lesson is personalized towards the students goals, while simultaneously building a solid musical foundation. Music is a great medium for self-expression, and it is in my best interest to help my students achieve their fullest potential as a guitarist and musician.

About Ryan

I began my musical training in Huntington Beach, California, guided by esteemed blues musician Walter Trout. Upon moving to New Jersey in 2010, I was gradually exposed to the New York metropolitan area jazz scene, becoming enamored with it. This passion led me to the New Jersey Performing Arts Cente

My 7 year old son has been taking online lessons with Ryan for over a year now. Ryan is absolutely the most patient and knowledgeable instructor we could have ever hoped for. He really gets his students and their needs. I wasn't sure how virtual lessons would go for my young son, but honestly it has been awesome! I can't say enough good things about Ryan and his teaching style!

I have been learning tenor banjo (Irish tuning) from Matt. Although I'm a complete beginner, Matt has been a very patient teacher. He balances lessons between learning songs and music theory. His wit and humor make every lesson enjoyable.
Sydney
I've been taking lessons from Matt for more than 8 years now since I was young and he's super friendly and encouraging! Highly recommend as he has experience with many different areas of guitar and that offers freedom to learn whatever you want.
Luke Lehman
Matt is able to spot small things that make a big difference in a musician's journey no matter how far along they are. His demeanor puts his students at ease, and always encourages and builds up. I'd recommend Matt to anyone, at any level, wanting to grow as a musician!!

Guitar (Acoustic/Electric) lessons for beginners focus on finger placement, strumming, sight-reading, understanding groove and chord placement. Students will learn to care for their instrument as well as tuning the guitar. learning to play their favorite style of songs and ultimately be taught the skills to pick out a song and play it on their own!

The most valuable thing I learned as a student and a teacher is that the learning process is worth infinitely more than the song or the chord the student was actually learning. I will almost never give a student the answer, because if we work together to find that answer, the student feels like they earned it, they have learned skills that will help them in all future things that they learned, and they also are much more likely to remember what they have just discovered. Spending time building a chord or transcribing a song together from scratch is infinitely more valuable than handing a student a list of things to memorize. Music is such a deeply rich and complex thing that absolutely everyone can experience, do and love, and I want to help everyone to that point.

About Sam

I started playing guitar when I was 7 and loved it. A couple years after that I started playing in bands, and a couple years after that I started writing music. I've done music programs and studied guitar at Interlochen Center for the Arts and Berklee School of Music. In the summer of 2019 I worked

Private Guitar Teacher

Hello guitarists! My name is Michael O'Hara and I am so excited to teach you the guitar. I'm 33, and I've been playing the guitar, studying and making music for over 18 years. I studied jazz/fusion guitar at Berklee College of Music and have played with more people in more situations than I now remember.

I love working with students at all ability levels. My passion is bringing out the artistry in my students and teaching them that music can be something that feeds your soul for the rest of your life. Any level of player can do this and I am excited to help you put your voice into your playing!

About Michael

Are you brand new to the guitar? Are you an experienced musician looking to learn more music theory or develop your technique? I can help with that. Whatever your ability level, I can help you develop your skills. There are as many ways to approach learning music as there are musicians, and you are

Callie
I was recommended to Mike by my friend Tony. Mike is structured, focused, and encouraging. I was having a tough time with learning some basics and Mike helped me improve everything from proper posture, to volume control and generally helped me improve on just about everything. Looking forward to more lessons and definitely recommend Mike to anyone looking for a great teacher.
Austin
Mike is not only a world class musician and highly effective teacher, he is also an outstanding mentor and has become a close friend. I was having a great deal of difficulty moving past the beginner stage; Mike helped me blast through to a place where I am now comfortable playing in small settings in front of friends and family. I’d recommend Mike to both adults like me looking to tune up their skills, and to parents looking for a teacher for their kids. Especially if they want someone who can get Timmy shredding those frets, but is also a good role model. Mike is a former marine and generally good dude. He’ll be teaching my kids someday.
Chantel
Mike came recommended through a friend and it's been an incredible experience so far! He's super friendly through his professionalism and was immediately able to assess my past musical experience and learning style- something that I've always taken note of and appreciated. Would absolutely refer to any level of ability/experience.

"Andrew is the best online lesson experience I've had. He's always super-positive, always encouraging, and just generally has a great attitude. His lessons are very well adapted to the online format, giving you video clips of the important moments in your lesson and links to extra resources. I've tried multiple instructors and although Andrew isn't the most affordable teacher on TakeLessons, he is worth every penny. After trying several I chose to continue with Andrew and increase our cadence to 3 hours a week. I'm seeing improvement in my skills nearly every day with his guidance!"

"I've been taking lessons from Mr.Connors for quite a while now, and I must say that he is the greatest guitar teacher I have ever had. A year ago, before I met Mr.Connors, I used to be a the worst guitar player ever. I used to spend hours over hours in front of the computer screen trying to learn a song or some music theory, but I never seemed to get any better. I still continued to try, though, because I had a particular interest towards the instrument, but I couldn't shake off the feeling that i wasn't going in the right direction and that I needed someone to guide me. Mr.Connors was just the person I was looking for. He identified my skill level immediately and steered me in the right direction. Each song I was taught had a unique skill that I needed to master to make it through to the end. This made me realise the importance of the subtleties involved in playing guitar.

I just recently dived into music theory and sometimes feel overwhelmed by the amount of theory that I have to learn, but Mr.Connors knows how to light my spirits up. Watching him play, I realise that I can take my guitar to the next level with just a little more effort. This motivates me to spend more time on the instrument, and I got to say I have never been more interested in the guitar than I am right now.

Overall Mr.Connors is nice, polite, patient, funny, and an exemplary guitar player and teacher (If that wasn't obvious already). Looking back I realise I've come a long way from a year ago, and I have Mr.Connors to thank for everything. I know I'm going to keep learning from him as long as i still want to get better."
