Private Blues Guitar Teacher

I have a lot of practical and professional music experience to bring to my lessons, playing with many different bands across many genres. in addition, for my intermediate and advanced students, I accompany them on bass and drums to help them learn to play with other parts of a rhythm section when their goal is to play with other musicians. I'd also say that I take care to craft my teaching to what my students actually want to be able to accomplish, and find ways to teach them not only technique, but theory that is specifically helpful to what they want to be able to do.

About Marshall

I have ten years of teaching and performing/touring experience ranging across a number of different genres, and I was trained at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. I currently play for multiple groups in Philadelphia including one of my own called The Lion and the Badger.

Marshall has been working with my son on his acoustic guitar for nearly a year -- both online and in person. He is a terrific teacher -- Marshall is patient, kind, and engaging. He is readily able to assess my son's continuing abilities and tailor the lesson to his specific needs. Marshall is also a great communicator and is always quickly in touch if we need to reschedule or change lesson times.

Are you a beginner guitar player just looking for some guidance?

Or maybe you've been playing for a little while and you just don't sound how you want to sound. And you're unsure of how to get to where you want to be.

Or maybe you're a songwriter, who just can't seem to get those great ideas to come to life.

I've been playing guitar for close to 15 years now. I immediately feel in love with my new hobby and studied formally under a performing rock / bluesgrass guitarist for four years. At the age of 19, I won the Rutgers University talent show (Instrumental category) for an improvised solo.

I'm 29 now and have spent that time continuing to sharpen my skills and knowledge relative to the guitar. For me, it is a long-term committment to mastery. A journey I gladly know will never be over.

I currently perform several shows a week as a solo act, using my own written material.

All lessons are customizable to cater to individual student needs. But here is a small sample of EXACTLY ...

Adam is incredibly knowledgeable, professional, and most importantly a great teacher! He's patient and great at breaking down trickier ideas to be understood by someone with minimal theory knowledge like myself. And he's a great player to boot! I would gladly recommend Adam as an instructor to anyone looking for general music theory knowledge on the guitar all they way to more advanced level jazz techniques.

Thanks Adam!
Andy
Adam is a fantastic guitar teacher. He paced his lessons so that the amount of information I had to cover was reasonable for my busy schedule, and every week I came away feeling more and more confident in my playing!
Yami
Adam taught both my daughters. He is very knowledgeable and has a natural gift for teaching. The girls were engaged in the class and considerably improved in technique. He really is the best instructor ever!

To play off what Chaz said, I'm a recovering trumpet player who initially tried my hand at the guitar about 5 years ago. Corey quickly figured out that my talent and background were better suited to the bass. There's been no turning back. Corey's a great teacher! He's always patient, he makes you work, and you enjoy the process. I'd give him more than 5 stars if I could!!
Ben
Corey is great. Always positive and happy. Great laughs. His system for teaching has gotten me from clumsy beginner to where I have the confidence to play with others and in front of an audience. He teaches relevant information that helps you know how to PLAY.
Brendan
Lessons with Corey for 15 years and I still suck but it ain’t his fault! Seriously, Corey is a very cool guy and a very capable instructor. Highly recommend him if u want to have fun while you’re learning.

I can teach a wide variety of styles on the guitar. Once the basic skills and technique behind the guitar are learned, we would be ready to master the blues scales and use them to improvise solos over blues progressions.

"I have been studying with Ahmad for just about 2 months. But that's enough for me to say he is an awesome guitar teacher. I think his teaching experience and method is a huge advantage for people who need professional guidance.

I was self-teaching for about a year before I came to Ahmad. It worked out just fine. I learned something. But I started to get confused at a point where I don't know how to move forward. I like a very specific group of guitarist (mostly Japanese fingerstyle players). And I wanted to learn how to master songs from those guitarist. And there is no such website or book that would teach me how to do that. Most of the guitar books or websites either give out general informations or put all information together as a mess.

Finally I decided to find a teacher. I found the lesson with Ahmad pretty effective. He is an experienced teacher who knows what you need to learn in order to achieve your goal. He has plenty of handouts that really helps me practice. The most important thing I learned from him is the big picture of guitar learning. For example, I learned the connection between scales and chords, why/how to improvise with these, how to go from there to other relevant things, etc.

When I look back over a year, I realize I have wasted some much time and effort trying to teach myself and wish it could have similar outcome as having a good teacher. Studying with Ahmad saves me so much time and effort (because it's actually easier!)"

I would highly recommend Dave to anyone wishing to improve their guitar skills....but dont expect to be playing like Clapton immediately!
My only issue is the long drive from Vero Beach to his studio. Something to take into consideration."

"Adam’s got some cool blues pockets. I’d never really thought about lead as pockets - kind of like a drummer would think about a fill. So I guess if you think about lead as discrete pockets it should be “easier “ to break down the lead guitar."

I'm German and booked just 5 lessons due to travel reasons. There was very vage input from me to Greg when we started (I always play the same; want to get new ideas; ...). Greg did not just provide a regular standard lesson. He focused and addressed 100%+ my desires and needs. Greg provided me very conrete and great input in several aspects to what I can do to improve my guitar playing. This was very useful to me and enabled me to move my guitar play forward. I highly recommend Greg to anybody."
