I was apprehensive about guitar lessons in general, but Nathan has changed my mind as a tutor. I am well pleased with how keen he is to tailoring lessons to one's goals. He is clear and precise in his teaching, and is also fun. I highly recommend him to whoever is considering it. I have learned so much in a couple lessons and always leave looking forward excitedly to the next one. Good man.

Play those classic guitar solos, riffs, and songs that make you smile and feel like a rockstar. While we learn the genres that you like and enjoy, I am going to show how music works and interacts as the universal language it is. We are going to understand the importance of every instrument in a band, concepts like groove, feel, tumbao, and many more words that you are going to come across in the music industry are going to be part of your vocabulary, and you are going to be able express yourself through your instrument. Just like a tree having its roots strong, you are going to have yours too so from now on your learning only keeps growing.

Eric has got them from making a racket to playing the Beatles and Rush in my basement.

"I wanted to learn how to play a Gypsy King song for my wife at our wedding. Lorin taught me fairly quickly, he made it fun and really easy to learn. Then I figured I would learn the basics so I can just jam out to songs or just mess around with my guitar. Now I can strum some early 90's or old school alternative songs. It seems alot easier to learn songs now. Super nice guy and very smart/laid back. Definitely worth the money"

"David is a former student of mine at the COnservatory of Music at Purchase College. I picked the first category since every one of them fits David. At college, David majored in studio composition, a commercial writing major. So he brings a thorough understanding of musical structure. He knows how what you are playing works, and he uses it to help you achieve a greater understanding of music. I thoroughly recommend this dedicated teacher."
