I have been teaching guitar for 18 years and have taught hundreds of satisfied students. When you sign up for classical guitar lessons with me, 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 a variety of classical guitar pieces appropriate for your level and interests. 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.

I’ve always was a musician but only discovered my voice 10 years ago. I have gone through so many struggles to find my voice and I can help you find yours quicker than I did. I have gone through the wrong path and have had amazing teachers get me out of traps and dead ends and in return I’ve been able to help my students do the same. I’ve been teaching for 6 years now and it has been another passion of mine to see my students grow and achieve their dreams.

Mr Lewis is fantastic. He truly loves teaching kids to love music. My grandson first had him as a 5th grade music teacher and now as a private instructor for his clarinet. He takes each student at their own pace, encouraging them along the way to stretch and challenge.

"Yuliya was my teacher in college while I was a music major. She was always really encouraging and helped me to develop my technique and passion for the instrument. She was really good about giving specific recommendations for spots to improve in my pieces and helped me to pick literature that advanced my abilities and were really enjoyable to play. There were a few times when I was prepping for auditions and she would meet with me extra to go over audition material or help me work on music for ensembles I was in. I would definitely recommend her as a teacher for any student!"

As he progresses very well and has the interest in trumpet, he needs a formal trumpet tutor to build the solid foundation and boost his skill. Luckily we find Jerry on takelessons. Jerry is very professional about teaching trumpet. He provides the material and shows the basic technique to my son. He sets up the daily practice routine. After 2 weeks, we notice that my son improves his sound production ans his skill!"

We have seen him grow as a singer develop his vocal skills and his confidence, under Nancy’s patient and experienced tutelage. With Nancy, my son has excelled, playing leading roles in his school musical performances and more recently, auditioning successfully for the NYSSMA all state chorus performance in Rochester. We we were lucky to have crossed paths with Nancy. We highly recommend her as a teacher."
