Private Guitar Teacher

I am available for private lessons at my studio in Center City Philadelphia, as well as online lessons. I work with students of all ages and levels, including beginners.

Teaching is a passion of mine and I truly enjoy helping students of all levels achieve their musical goals.

I don’t apply a singular approach for each student, because every student has their own strengths and weaknesses. As lessons continue, I pay close attention to how a student learns and picks up on new information which I use to guide me in choosing the most effective strategies going forward. Depending on the level, lessons can range from reading music, developing and improving technique, and understanding the music to allow for informed musical choices.

While I will always have suggestions regarding the choice of repertoire, I think it’s very important for the student to be playing music that they personally enjoy and will be motivated to practice. With beginners I do encourage a more structured approach,

I make sure all of my guitar students are well rounded, having the ability to read notation and tablature, as well as have a fundamental understanding of music theory. Having begun my guitar playing career the hard way (self taught until college), I approach all my lessons as if I were the student again, showing you the things I wish I was told when I was starting.

*Intermediate to advanced students get access to Miles' library of pedagogical books, transcriptions, and instructional videos! Over 400 books including over 50 videos!*

Our regular piano teacher was on maternity leave. Miles has covered as a substituted teacher for over 3 months. He was very nice, calm and knowledgeable. We do recommend him. He is a great teacher!
Andrea Z.
Miles was an amazing teacher for me and my son. We both took Piano and Guitar lessons with Miles for close to 2 years and enjoyed every lesson. He is very knowledgeable when it comes to music, can help you focus on the music you want to play and he is just as good with adults as he is with kids! I would highly recommend taking lessons with him and I think he is an amazing teacher

Since 1998, I have taught as many as forty private students per week, many of whom have gone on to pursue the instrument through college, conservatory, and performance.

Extremely helpful during lessons. Designs the lessons to use song in my areas of interest. Lesson critiques are always done in a positive manner. Right now mostly in the area of finger placement. This does make the music easier to play. Her husband Chris also teaches.

Courtney and Chris are amazing. They really make sure that you know what your doing by the time you leave your lesson, and they are both so much fun. 10 out of 10 would recommend to anyone at any level of experience.

With most teachers, practicing an instrument as a beginner can feel like a chore. It is my mission to make practicing guitar the highlight of your day, every single step of the way.

When I first started learning guitar, I convinced myself that I was going to give up at least once a week. This is because I hadn't yet discovered the secret to learning music the fun way. I'll tell you that secret, which I didn't realize until 6 years into playing for various bands: being a good musician is not about mastering technic, knowing the names of all the scales and rhythms, or being able to move your fingers in the fastest or hardest ways. Being a good musician is about loving music. If you can connect to what you're playing, you will create beautiful sounds. It's as simple as that.

In our lessons, you'll connect to what we're playing because you will take the reins: we'll start by learning the music you love. We can find a way to tailor any song you love to your skill level so that you ...

For Grace, she wanted to be able to accompany her own singing. She picked some songs, they worked out the chords together, and pinpointed some riffs for her to learn. (The same thing everyone has to do when they learn a new song.) It was just great that Alex showed Grace that front-end work to learn a song pays off. On top of all of this, Alex is a super nice guy! Fun to work with and always supportive of his students!"
