I started playing acoustic guitar when I was seven years old. I have been playing and teaching mostly bluegrass, old time, Irish, blues, and swing jazz styles for many years. I have taught both privately and have also done various workshops at festivals. I have taught guitar multiple years for instance at the Gettysburg Bluegrass Festival in PA.
My students learn to have fun with music. Students can work on rhythms, melodies, improvisation, song writing, getting into and/or hanging on in a jam session, etc.

About Tara

Strum, solo, compose, sing and back yourself up. What can't you do with a guitar? We'll learn the tunes you want to learn along with the theory behind them. I might back you up on bass, guitar, or piano. We'll get right to playing music as fast as possible.

Peter is very easygoing and fun to work with. I was very pleasantly surprised and impressed how much we accomplished in our first 45 minute lesson. Look forward to continuing lessons with him!
Brenda N.
My first lesson was a lot of fun! Peter is great at helping you feel at ease and comfortable. I was extremely nervous and he was great with making me feel like I was right at home with a friend! I also appreciate that he is not rigid in his teaching techniques or format. He caters your lesson to what your learning desires are and is very good at recognizing your skill level (or lack of 😁). I also appreciate how encouraging he is. I’m super excited to continue on my Saxophone journey!

My child really enjoyed his first lesson with peter. Peter is a very talented musician and he made the lesson fun! My child seemed to learn a lot from just one lesson with peter and he enjoys practicing what he learned at home.

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I am a patient and encouraging guitar instructor who can explain (what can sometimes be rather complex) content in an easy to understand and age appropriate way. I strive to make my lessons exciting and informative for my students at all times.

We will cover the fundamentals and foundational elements of guitar and music theory that can be applied and later translated to other subjects! I will also help my students set and reach attainable goals with their music and performances.

So, go grab your guitar, and let’s get started so you can move on to the intermediate level!

"When I started taking lessons with Max, I knew three chords and very little about music theory. I never thought I would get past G-C-D. His patience and structured lessons helped me become a better player. Max is very encouraging and that was most appreciated. I have more confidence in my playing thanks to him. I even understand the circle of fifths!"

I've recommenced him to several friends that just need to stop being lazy and get over to his studio. His studio is awesome. it has everything you could ever need. A huge selection of instruments that you can take a detour on from the regular class.cant forget to mention the air conditioning is great.

How to Simplify Your Live Guitar Rig for Performances

Playing the guitar is such a fantastic experience. It’s so relieving to be on stage or in your designated practice space and just wail on your instrument. However, one of the difficulties of being a guitar player is deciding what gear is needed for live performances. We often get trapped in thinking that we must have the biggest and loudest guitar rig for shows, accompanied by a pedalboard equipped with 30+ pedals. Don’t get me wrong, there is something extremely satisfying about plugging in …
