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.

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.

This was my son's first piano lesson so we didn't know what to expect. Kwame was great with my son. He was both patient and encouraging, knowledgeable and professional. My son is excited for his next lesson!
Deanna
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.

When I was a wee lad, I always sought to find instructors who could not only play the music and teach the notes. Time and time again I found myself confused and filled with endless questions on why one would play a certain way over another but couldn't find the right teacher with the patience and consideration for an open dialogue that I needed. For over half of my little life I've been practicing guitar and aim to continuously spur creativity to keep it fun. If it weren't for the idea that everything in the learning process can be gamified (so that nothing ever feels boring and subsequently lost in translation) I wouldn't have put any initiative forward to get good at the music game. I can help a new learner get a grip on the most basic aspects, teach you the TABs to songs of your liking, and help teach pentatonics for those into soloing. Practice has to be the hardest thing in my opinion a teacher must try and get across to a student as fun. For that reason do I believe most won't ...

Every student will desire something different out of their lessons. I constantly encourage students to realize what their ultimate goal is in regards to the guitar. Every student has a different goal and therefore everyone will have a different route in learning the guitar. For example, a student seeking admission into a top level conservatory will need a vastly different route than an adult whom is taking lessons as enjoyable past-time hobby.

My job as a teacher is to prescribe learning materials that will increase a student’s awareness to reach his or her own goals. Natural technical ability of dexterity, flexibility and strength can be developed over time and a general understanding of musicianship can be learned. However, I always try to explain the importance of these elements in relation to reaching a student’s final goal.

Students most often take music lessons for enjoyment and as a past time and therefore a student's enjoyment from playing music is perhaps the most ...

Rich is a top notch teacher and had a huge hand in shaping me into the musician I am today. I came to Rich with the objective to prepare for auditions to attend music school for college and he was able to take that dream and run with it. Under his tutelage, I was able to gain admittance into every program I applied to and was able to attend my dream school, the University of Miami (FL). From this experience, I can absolutely say that his teaching abilities are fantastic and on par or exceeding what you would see at a top notch music school. He is very attentive to the aspirations of his students and what is most impressive is the creative approaches he uses to make challenging topics more feasible. I would highly recommend any guitarist looking to expand their repertoire and skill set to take lessons with Rich!

"Ellen is awesome. I am a total beginner and perfectionist so I don't tend to do well with learning something new in front of another person. I grow easily frustrated when I don't pick things up quickly and easily and get embarrassed when I make mistakes. Ellen makes the lessons super comfortable for me and I leave having learned something new every time. I have a LONG way to go but I can see where this can lead and plan to stick with it. She knows how to make music and an instrument make sense to someone with no background in music which is very helpful for me. I plan to stick with her for a long time!"

My learning experience with Ron has been great! I'm truly getting to know my instrument and what it takes to be a good musician. The lessons are designed to my specific needs and cover the full spectrum of musicianship. I'm confident that with Ron's guidance and routine practice, I'll finally be the guitarist/bassist I always wished to be.

Thanks!"

8-Year-Old Girl is Gnarliest Guitar Shredder Ever

I'm willing to bet that "playing like a girl" will stop being an insult within this little lady's lifetime! At just 8 years old, Lisa-X is able to play rapid fire metal solos that will melt your face off and blow your mind. She's smaller than her guitar, but she sure knows how to make it sound big and mighty. Plus, the sweet grin she gives the camera as she's bending a note around 1:46? Priceless! Child prodigies like Lisa are absolutely amazing, but there's really no wrong age to sta …
