Private Electric Guitar Teacher

If you wanna rock, let’s do it. I’ve been doing since I was a teenager and encourage students to perform together in bands in my studio.

About Tim

I am a Hartt School of Music trained classical guitarist raised on the electric guitar. With over 20 years of teaching experience, I have helped students of all ages achieve their musical goals. Whether it's getting into the school jazz band, a college degree program or simply playing for friends,

I have been a student of Tim’s for a little over a year now. I started playing guitar at age 52 and when I started with Tim I was very close to giving up or settling on just being able to strum a few chords. I have had many hand injuries in the past that have resulted in arthritis and lack of dexterity in my wrists and some of my fingers and I started doubting I would ever be able to progress in my ability to play. From the very first lesson where I told Tim about my hand issues and my frustrations, he told me he was sure we could work around any physical limitations I had, and he was right. Tim has been able to work with me on alternative ways to play the chords I was having trouble with and has shown me that these alternate techniques along with the bit of music theory he sprinkles into lessons can really expand my ability to play.

In the time I have been studying with Tim, I have done more than I thought I ever could. I went from a frustrated beginner guitar player to having enough confidence to play on stage with some of Tim’s other students and I am now looking forward to what I will be able to do on the guitar instead of being frustrated with what I can’t do.

Tim is a talented and passionate musician as well as a knowledgeable and very relatable instructor which is a rare combination and he's also a really great guy and any student of any age or ability will benefit from studying with him.
Sam
Tim is an excellent guitar teacher and an overall great guy. He provided me with structure and support, enabling me to make the most out of my practice and ultimately progress as a player. His warm personality and contagious enthusiasm for music kept me looking forward to our time together each week. He was also very flexible when it came to scheduling to accommodate for my dynamic schedule.

Tim is an excellent teacher, providing excellent advice, practice techniques, and insights. He makes learning and improving easy and enjoyable.

Private Electric Guitar Teacher

I am a technique-focused teacher insofar as making sure any student of mine is avoiding bad and sometimes unhealthy habits in their playing. I do, however, try to find fun ways to work on technique, with the end goal being playing repertoire that is fun for the student. I believe technical exercises have their place in learning any instrument, but that it's important to spend the majority of your practice time on material which is ultimately enjoyable to play.

I do have certain sets of books I like to follow depending on the student's interests, but I am always happy to tweak the lesson plan to fit the student's needs.

About Joshua

Hi there! My name is Josh, and I'd love to be your guitar teacher! I've been playing guitar since I was eight, starting out playing rock and roll, then focusing on classical training for my college career. In both undergraduate and graduate school, I studied classical composition as a classical gui

My son Jake wanted to learn some Boston songs that my husband always plays, and Josh was the perfect teacher for him! Jake had been playing 2 years when we found Josh. I was impressed by his ability to make stuff like technique and scales fun for students. Highly recommend!
Scott
My middle son took an interest in classical guitar and Josh was perfect to get him going. We bought the books recommended by Josh which gave my son the basics. Josh follows the pace of the student and was flexible when teaching from books.
Julie
I wanted to learn more than just the basic chords and Josh was a great teacher! He explains things in a way that's easy to understand. I took guitar lessons when I was little and he helped me to build on what I already knew. He also encouraged me to pick songs I wanted to learn rather than stick to a book. Scheduling was easy and he's really responsive to messages.

Before learning Classical and Jazz guitar in school, I was a full on Rocker!!! I played SRV/Hendrix style blues rock to what is now old school metal...Metallica, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, etc.
I loved early Prog Rock, pre-era of a million extra strings and down tuned everything. I still love to shred, so if you're still reading this, we may be a fit. Thanks!!!!

Online Electric Guitar Teacher

I started teaching myself guitar when I was 10. Later, in high-school, my teacher frustrated with my lack of practicing came up with an idea to light a fire under me. They suggested I teach a younger classmate. Not only did I finally start practicing, but I fell in love with teaching as well. Thanks to that, I have played over 1,000 shows, both solo and as an auxiliary musician for other touring acts. I performed on over 30 albums and have composed for radio, television, and internet video series, including sharing the stage with members of the 10,000 Maniacs. I've been featured in The New York Times, on the CBS Evening News, and on NPR.

I have over 6 years of experience teaching private lessons in addition to teaching seminars on songwriting and music business at Infinity Visual and Performing Arts and SUNY JCC.

While each student is different, I start them on the Mel Bay or Essential Elements books. From there we will cover a variety of genres from classical, jazz, rock and

There is always an assessment period for the first few weeks to determine the student's level, knowledge, and interests. Once a better understanding is established, we can move forward with a typical lesson strategy, which involves a heavy focus on repertoire so the student can start playing with friends as soon as possible. For example, at the beginning of every lesson, I ask the student what questions they have from our last lesson, how they feel about things we've talked about in general, and briefly summarize the topics that we've worked on.

"My 13-years old son was reluctant to take music lessons. He had not liked piano (with a different instructor) when he was younger, but agreed to try guitar. Since the first trial lesson, he has been excited to learn more!

Chris is a fun teacher who knows his stuff and who communicates well with both his students and their parents. I have three kids and have found it’s difficult to find a teacher who is responsive to parents + engaging with youth + gifted at music.

His rates are very reasonable for our area. His in-home lesson space is professional and comfortable — I get to sit on a comfy couch and get work done during my son’s weekly lesson. In addition, Chris goes above and beyond to make sure the lessons are meeting our expectations. He tracked down strings for us when we accidentally broke one. He has rescheduled lessons due to our busy schedules. He is genuinely kind and such a pleasure to work with — we couldn’t be more thrilled!"
