I have 50 years of teaching experience, from beginners to advanced students. I also teach the people no one else thinks are teachable because I work with people from where they are and find their best learning styles. Several of my students are now professional musicians, but that's not everyone's

Private Guitar Teacher

I have been playing guitar for about 25 years and teaching for about seven years now. I played in a punk/rock band in high school and have since studied classical and jazz guitar. Currently I write and perform songs in a folk/acoustic style.

I studied classical guitar at the University of Central Florida, performing solo and ensemble repertoire. I can teach proper technique with both hands, music notation, tablature, sight reading, harmonic theory, and how to realize "orchestral" compositions.

I can teach shredding lead guitar riffs or strumming rhythm (typically acoustic) guitar. Whatever genre or style you're into, and whatever skill level you find yourself - I can help you play the songs you love.

About Gio

I studied music at UCF (Orlando), focusing on classical and jazz guitar, but I also have years of experience playing rock, blues, folk, hip-hop, and musical theater on both guitar and drums. I have been teaching guitar, drums, and piano for about eight years to students of all ages. Music is wh

I can teach multiple ways I have the ability to CONSISTENTLY turn average guitar students into great musicians. This goes far beyond merely teaching them to “physically play” their instrument - it requires me to turn them into self-reliant and creative musicians. THAT is the Holy Grail of being a master guitar teacher and is a big part of why I have wonderful success with all my students.

About Scott

Hi, my name is Scott and it's wonderful to meet you. I have been a guitar instructor for many years having great success with all my students. I was born in Brooklyn, NY and raised in the suburbs of Old Bridge, NJ, came from an artistically gifted family. I picked up guitar playing in the 6

Scott is a truly gifted musician and teacher. He's taken me from someone who "plays a little" to someone who feels like a real musician. He is challenging, but encouraging, and always makes making music fun. He is also my daughter's teacher (age 12) and because of Scott she really looks forward to lessons and playing. I would wholeheartedly recommend him as a teacher.
John Osbourne
I'm a self-taught guitar player who recently plateaued, and realized I couldn't improve without the tailored instruction and personal accountability a quality teacher such as Scott.

Prior to beginning lessons with Scott, my playing could be categorized as nothing short of reckless. I needed an intervention, before The Music Courts wrenched away custody of my beloved instrument for good; we are talking about the well-being of a guitar, after all.

Luckily, a friend gave me Scott’s contact info. I was pleased to find him immediately responsive to my email, and able to accommodate my difficult schedule so we could find a time to meet. The process began with statements of my goals, and a sober evaluation of my current skills. In just six months with him, I see massive improvements in myself, and enjoy playing in ways I never have before.

I would categorize Scott as professional, technically masterful, humorous, kind, and rigorous in his instruction. Scott's love and respect for his craft is abundant, and inspires me.

Ivan is an exceptional teacher. His instruction goes far beyond the technical foundation required for all musicians - he integrates teachings that help one tap into the emotional connection to music and how that impacts playing. His disciplined approach helped me break out of some habits that developed as a self-taught guitarist and his patience was an asset for someone like me, who is very impatient.

From Ivan you will establish a foundation that is build on theory and technique. With Ivan there are no shortcuts - practice, be diligent and you'll achieve consistency. He works you hard but it's worth the effort because with these pillars, even I, an uneducated musician, have seen growth in my skills.

Geography is no issue so no matter where in the world you live, I highly recommend Ivan as a teacher and mentor.
Setareh
I had a great experience working with Ivan! He was an amazing mentor and I have learned a lot from him.

Best teacher, very patient with me, learned a lot. If you are looking to actually learn something definitely go with him.
