Have you ever wanted to play an instrument or sing? Do you have a genuine passion for music? My lessons properly prepare students for what is needed to execute their journey as a musician. Lessons will be customized to meet the needs of the students. I have five years of teaching students from ages five to fifty and over twenty years of experience as a musician. Students will learn core music essentials such as music theory, ear training, sight reading, and more. And for songwriters I offer lessons on songwriting and structuring.

I was very pleased with my lessons. I learned a lot and Kwame was very patient and helpful. I like the progression of the lessons and feel like at this rate I will be where I want to be vocally in no time at all.
Isabelle
Kwame is a great instructor!! He is knowledgeable about the craft he teaches and is great at explaining things in a comprehensible manner. My daughter is young, and his teaching method provided her with the skills and confidence to learn you how play. She went from not liking to play as much to not being able to stay away from a piano.

Kwame is super nice and easy to work with

My speciality is helping young children learn the basics of this instrument! To see them strum their first E chord is fantastic :). I do suggest a half-size guitar for students nine and younger.

Miriam has made a tremendous positive impact on my vocal technique. Her vocal pedagogy is masterful and her vocal chops are top notch from her extensive experience touring. If you are looking to become a better vocalist and wish to enjoy your lessons, I would look no further than Miriam Porter.
Ally
Taking lessons with Miriam has been a blessing in my life. She has helped me not only grow vocally, but as an individual. She is incredibly intelligent, kind, encouraging, and talented! I would never take voice lessons with anyone else. She is a ray of sunshine, and if it weren't for her, I wouldn't be where I am today, vocally and as a person. I recommend her to everyone considering taking lessons. She cares for you as an individual, and believes in you. That is incredibly hard to find elsewhere, and I am grateful I found her!
Mikayla
Miriam taught me vocal techniques that no other teacher could teach me. She has left such a big impression on my life. She has a beautifully soul and is genuinely a great person. She is the best vocal instructor I have ever had.

Online Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I am a professional Guitarist, Bassist, Pianist and Music Instructor based out of Haddonfield, NJ. I have taught hundreds of students between ages 4 and 70 from beginner to advanced in all musical styles. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Music in 2007, and was trained by top-tier musicians in Jazz, Classical, Blues, Rock, RnB, Pop and even Broadway.

My teaching style is to first identify what music motivates students, and then to carve out a path for them in fundamental practice towards achieving their goals, while preparing them for performance-level playing. Along that path, other musical styles, famous musicians and examples of mastery are introduced to broaden student’s understanding of what is achievable and to motivate them towards a higher level on their instrument.

Online Acoustic Guitar Teacher

As a singer-guitarist for 20 years and a degree in Music Composition, I specialize in taking any song and giving it the perfect acoustic guitar accompaniment, from beginner bare bones accompaniment, to advanced "full band sound" accompaniment involving more complex strumming, picking, fingerpicking, slapping, and percussive styles.

I can also give you ideas for jamming, soloing, and writing songs while showing you music theory, or I can teach you riffs to your favorite songs!

Being a drummer as well I can show you how to play "in the pocket" with rhythmic precision when playing with a band or by yourself.

I have been playing guitar for 4 years now and I would love the opportunity to teach others the skill. I have a guitar already but if you want to use yours that is fine too. Music has always been a passion of mine, and I hope to get people just as excited about it as I am.

About Kyra

I have been playing guitar for 4 years. I try to listen to all types of music so I can be a more versatile teacher. I enjoy helping people do hands-on things, and I try to use different styles because I believe everyone is different.

"I have been taking lessons with Jimmy for about 3 years now and couldn't be happier. I remember being amazed at how quickly I progressed early on, which instantly got me hooked. He focuses hard on your guitar foundation as well a your music theory foundation, not just on how to play a few songs. Since Jimmy has his own studio, you have the capability to record your own songs as much as you would like. The studio also provides a new way of learning that no where else offers by going through your own recordings step by step to pinpoint problem areas. I look forward to going to Jimmy's every week. He is a funny, kind and easy to talk to guy with a passion for what he does.

"I have known Charley for quite a few years now. He has taught three of my sons to play guitar, both acoustic and electric. Charley himself is a very good guitar player. But it is his easy going personality and the way he relates to the kids that make him the best guitar teacher we could have ever had. My sons have their own band that plays out in public and they are all on worship teams. They have also played at multiple youth conferences in Ohio and North Carolina. I highly recommend him for all children and adults."

"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."

He has a very measured and logical approach to his lessons, and manages to keep things fun while drilling the fingering, patterns, and vocabulary into your head.
