Private Country Guitar Teacher

I am a Brazilian guitar player who started by playing blues and rock on the electric guitar, and then moved into Samba, Bossa Nova and fingerstyle on the nylon-string guitar. Today, I play mostly Latin styles and a little bit of Flamenco. I also have a year of conservatory training under my belt, as well as a background in West African percussion, and culminate all of these styles together as a composer.

As a teacher, I cater to your aptitude and your goals and make sure that you are having fun while you grow. That means learning actual repertoire of music that you want to study. Some students want more music theory than others: and that's totally fine! But I like to always have a song as a context to study that theory. Afterall, we want to use theory to actually make music!

About Tomas

My name is Tomas. I am a Brazilian-American polyglot musician and language instructor. I play music and teach English/Portuguese for a living, and have been doing so for the past 7 years! I also learned Spanish and French through music, so I know a lot about those languages and the styles of music

Ryan is very kind and patient teacher. He has a great knowledge of music. Over the time he has been working with my son, Ryan has taken time to get to know my son. This bond encourages my son to work harder and develop more. I would highly recommend Ryan as a teacher to everyone and have done so when people ask me who gives my son instruction.

Private Country Guitar Teacher

I have been teaching for 18 years and have taught hundreds of satisfied students. When you sign up for country guitar lessons, you will begin by learning the basics of the instrument including proper holding and playing position, tone production, rhythm, first position notes,basic chords and notation. Once you get the basics down, you will learn how to play your favorite songs regardless of style. All of this can happen within the first 4-6 months of playing.

About Dave

Dave K. began playing guitar at the age of 10. His influences include Joe Satriani, Eric Johnson, Guthrie Govan, Jimi Hendrix, David Gilmour, Jeff Beck, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Pat Martino, Pat Metheny and Scott Henderson. At the age of 17 he began teaching private guitar and bass lessons to classmates

I haven't played the violin since I was in middle school, and I wanted to re-learn to play it. I am so glad I picked Dave, he is very professional and made me feel very comfortable. I jumped in with both feet and Dave made the instructions at our first lesson easy for me to understand. Excellent location and studio is awesome.
Rushia Hendricks
Excellent lesson. Does a wonderful job at taking older students and gently holding their feet to the fire to bring out the best- even under the most challenging of circumstances. Kudos to being such a uniquely great teacher!
Tom L.
I realize it was the first lesson but I was a little disappointed that we spend nearly the entire time on housekeeping items, like canceling and re-scheduling appointments. I think that could have been covered with an e-mail or handout. I also thought we spent too much time going over the differences between acoustic and electric guitars - considering my age and background. Would have liked to see him demonstrate what I was asked to practice before the next lesson instead of just being told to refer to the workbook.

Online Country Guitar Teacher

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.

My son and husband have been taking lessons with Brad for 6 weeks. They are thrilled with him and they have both made a lot of progress. Brad is the first teacher that has inspired my son to actually practice between lessons. :) He is highly recommended.

"Francesca is a wonderful teacher! She's very knowledgeable but shares that knowledge in a way that's easy to understand. I've been an amateur musician for over forty years and I've read a lot of books and watched a lot of videos. None of them explained the concepts we went over during our class as clearly and simply as Francesca. In fact, one of the things she explained had been staring me in the face for twenty or more years! She pointed it out and I had a "duh!" moment! She also has a great way of putting a student at ease and making you feel comfortable with her right away. It didn't feel like our first lesson together. Thank you, Francesca!"

"After working to live for many years, and after purchasing all the books, apps, and YouTube channels that seemed promising, I could never find the approach/perspective that could make the process of learning/playing the guitar not seem like an impossible amount of effort at the end of my day.

I've always wanted to be a musician, but it seemed impossible now that I turned 30 and had a corporate job. Eventually, I bought a new guitar, thinking it would my catalyst. 6 months passed and it had only become a talking piece in first dates, so I decided I needed to look for a musical aficionado.

Walking into Francesca's Studio, I felt immediately like I was in the right place.

In what I thought would take weeks, the 45 minutes I scheduled with her, we were playing and singing to some of my favorite songs.... I can't even explain how great this made me feel. I suddenly felt like I could actually achieve this bucket list dream of mine.

Francesca clearly has a talent in helping others pursue their musical dreams, and I'm excited to continue working with her to realize mine."

"I have been taking guitar lessons with Ahmad Since 2011. Music has always been important to me and my lessons with Ahmad have been a continual source of inspiration and joy. I love Ahmad's musical philosophy and regardless of what I'm interested in he is always able to help me better myself. I continue to be very busy in my life but always find myself coming back to music. Through taking lessons with Ahmad I have been able to achieve many of my musical goals and know that if I keep practicing I will be able to achieve even more of my goals.

Ahmad is extremely talented, intelligent, and friendly and is always there to support me in whatever new musical concept I wish to learn next. He can help anyone looking to better themselves in a wide variety of areas regardless of the style of music you are interested in. I have been studying country and jazz with him primarily, as my goal is to be able to write my own music and put together a band some day. I have no intention of stopping music lessons with Ahmad as they continue to be something I look forward to every week. Anyone would be lucky to have such a great teacher."

"Jordan was very helpful right from the start. He listened to me on where I am at and where I want to be. He showed me a few things that we will work towards and then helped me understand my instrument much better. Gave me some fun new things to practice before the next lesson. If you're looking for a lesson that is interactive and fun I recommend Jordan and the online thing is supper easy and handy. I don't think it could have gone any better. The lesson was 45 minutes and it felt like 10."
