Feedback

I think Tim is doing a great job with our kids to keep them interested in their lessons. This is their first musical lesson of any kind for them and so far Tim has the right mix of lessons and fun. I know that Tim wants them to practice between lessons so it will be important for him to give us instructions on exactly what they should be practicing so we can ensure its completed.

Good Experience

Our experience with Timothy P. has been very good. My 6 year old son started lessons with Timothy ten weeks ago and I'm amazed at what my son has learned in that short amount of time. And when my son decided he had a mind of his own about what he wanted to learn, Timothy was happy to adapt to that.

Matt taught me for a 3 month period and helped me drastically with learning how to improvise guitar solos. I can't thank Matt enough for his help in helping me with a rather unorthodox time to start getting lessons. Each week he told me to bring 3 songs with a guitar solo I would like to learn in different genres and each week we broke down the solos for me to practice and gather their techniques. Thank you so much Matt!

My 9 year old son had his first session yesterday, and he loved it. Matthew is great, responsive and especially patient! My son is looking forward to having more sessions!

From the very beginning of how to get a sound out of the guitar to playing songs/solos and melodies in various styles.

About Nadav

Hi there, My name is Nadav and I have been a professional guitar player and teacher for most of my life now. I have a very extensive experience playing festivals and venues in the U.S and abroad and have been teaching beginner and advanced guitar/bass and musical ensemble classes for 15 years.

Bill T.
Speaking from the standpoint of a colleague of Nadav’s for many years and professional musician/educator myself, Nadav is the real deal. He is my top recommendation, without question, for anyone looking to study the guitar and/or music in general.

Nadav is an extremely gifted and skilled musician, composer, and bandleader with very deep understanding of playing the guitar. He has the experience and versatility to so in a multitude of different styles ranging from R&B, Pop, Funk, Jazz and Ethiopian groove music (check out his incredible band: Abbess Orchestra). He is also extremely kind, has a gentle yet “matter-of-fact” demeanor and is the consummate professional.

For anyone who has interest in learning the guitar and needs an instructor, no matter their experience level, it’s impossible to go wrong with Nadav. Just check him out and sign up!
Eran
I was a self taught guitar player since a very early age, so when I met Nadav for the first time I already knew many songs and chords. But my technique was a mess.
Nadav helped me establish a healthy and meticulous practice routine that fixed my technique very quickly.
I would recommend him as a teacher for every level.
Randy
Great teacher with good vibes! Nadav showed me great ways to practice harmony and soloing on the guitar. Highly recommended.

You will learn to play melodies: Mary Had A little lamb, Ode to Joy, etc. as well as chords to rhythm. If you have songs you wish to learn we can do that and if you want to learn to play guitar and sing that is possible. Any pop songs on the radio we can learn and have you playing for your friends.

About Andrew

I have loved music since I was a child. I began playing clarinet when I was 11 years old and slowly picked up new instruments like the saxophone, harmonica, guitar, ukulele, flutes, whistles, kazoo, and others. I enjoy any style of music and have a desire to learn as many instruments as possible.

Excellent experience. Learned a great deal on the first day. Hoping to get fluent in playing this instrument.

Very professional and knowledgeable of music and playing the instruments. He is a wonderful teacher who is optimistic and truly works hard too bring out the best in his students. My daughter Aaliyah has learned so much in such a short time and we are greatful.
Tracy H.
Simply put, Andrew is the best. His genuine love and passion for all-things music was obvious the first day we met him. He is great with kids. He is flexible yet reliable. We love the fact that he tailors his lessons, homework, and incentives to the needs and interests of each individual student. We are confident that we could not find a better guitar instructor for our daughter.

Online Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Students will experience a fun; step-by-step lesson each session they book, viewing their teacher (myself!) on FaceTime (for MAC users) or SKYPE (for PC users); Google hangouts, demonstrating scales, chords and style of execution, when applicable. I prefer the feeling of the nylon stringed guitar in my fingers, but every student and teacher has his or her own preference. I offer the 'basics' of both MUSIC THEORY and the mastering of scales and chords on the 6 string guitar, which translates to:

1. Learning the notes and scales on each string of the guitar, adding new knowledge yet repeating and re-iterating the knowledge acquired from the previous lesson
2. Learning to play simple songs and melodies on one or two strings of the guitar, gradually incorporating the other strings
3. Accruing a repertoire of chords which may be used to accompany the singing of a folk song or ballad
4. Playing a melody AND accompanying oneself with chords together on the guitar
5. Learning to play ...

Tamari is a remarkably accommodating teacher. Uses instructional strategies that are effective and appropriate. Also, presents new material clearly and logically. Demonstrates enthusiasm and interest in lesson presentation. My daughter loves learning classical piano with Tamari.
Rhea Farbman
I have known Tamari professionally for fifteen years.
She is an excellent music teacher for piano and voice. Her expertise is noticeable as she patiently meets her student at his/her level and guides that student to the next step.
The process is perfect for any student, even if developmentally challenged and for any age. I highly recommend Tamari.

I've been consistent weekly taking yoga lessons from Tamari at the Y in Canaan CT. I try not to miss it. She's a compassionate and caring yoga teacher and will trailer her classes to fit your needs. Her classes are good for newbies and seniors and those who want a simple class. No athletics. Hatha Yoga are basic yoga stretches that will make you feel good after participating . My aches and pains are gone after each session. To be continued....

"Ahmad is an outstanding teacher. When I first met him I had barely ever touched a guitar. Now I can play some of my favorite songs! Ahmad takes the time to work with you to meet your individual goals and his patience makes even a beginner player feel comfortable. My lesson with him is the favorite part of my day. I highly recommend Ahmad."

"I started taking guitar lesson with Lucian, but our theory work inspired me to buy a keyboard, so now I take both guitar and piano on alternating weeks. As much as I still enjoy the guitar, I LOVE my piano lessons. Apparently my piano has come along well enough that my girlfriend now wants lessons for both her and her child. That is no small compliment coming from her! I'm 43, but I would recommend Lucian to anyone at any age, so long as you're willing to put in the practice. I've had a half dozen guitar instructors, not to mention teachers of various subjects and levels. Lucian is among the best."

"Will is a fantastic teacher!

I came in with a lot of bad habits built up by trying to teach myself how to play the guitar out of books, and a lot of shyness and embarrassment on top of that. Will patiently corrected my habits, drew me out, and directed our lessons at exactly the kind of music I wanted to play, despite the fact that initially it was *way* out of my league. And he doesn't let me get lazy, either, now that I'm getting better - every song is a new challenge."

"I've been slowly learning guitar from Greg for the past two years. He really has allowed me to develop my own style of playing, but he is always there to step in if I am on the track to developing a bad technique. He really can play anything. I've seen him play fingerpicking tunes, rip some bluegrass, funk electric guitar, you name it. It's because of him I can now take to the stage with my guitar and not be too scared to play.

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."
