There are many ways to cultivate your musical skill whether it's visual, kinesthetic, or auditory. Let's find out which way works best for you!

Most schools do not offer the flexibility in learning styles necessary for you to find your ideal way of processing new information, whether it be visual, auditorial, kinesthetic, memetic, right brain/left brain, etc.

That's why I'm here! I pride myself on working with each individual student on the subtle ways that they learn and form healthy habits. If you have any questions about my teaching styles or methods please ask!

A little more about me:

I have over 10 years of guitar experience, studying under Jazz heavyweights Corey Christiansen, Oteil Burbridge, and Dan Miller. I pride myself in putting my students needs and wants above all else. I wish to impart a love for music onto my students that can only be cultivated by the bond a teacher and their student share, let us learn and grow together!

About Grant
Hello!

My name is Grant and I’ve been helping students grow for over 11 years now! How time flies! I started playing music at the age of 9 and have been in love with it ever since, staying active in my local music scene as an instructor, performer, manager, and booking agent.

I pride myself in taking a students learning needs and using that as my basis for their specific lesson plan, always on a case-by-case basis, tailored to each individual student. Everyone is at a different waypoint on their path so why would I use a predetermined formula to try and help them, am I right?

This can mean using a specific song as a goal and learning the specific techniques that we need in order to learn it as our curriculum. This could also mean finding out if a visual approach to teaching is better than an auditory one. I like to think of thes
e things for my students to make their learning as easy and effective as possible.

In addition to freelance work, (weddings, jazz brunch gigs, etc.) I am the lead guitarist for the Funk/R&B band Water Seed and the soul project RetroFit. I attended Indiana University for jazz guitar and have studied under jazz greats Dan Miller, Corey Christiansen, and Oteil Burbridge.

I teach all kinds of stringed instruments from guitar and bass to mandolin and banjo! If you have any questions about my teaching methods, skill level in a certain discipline, or anything you can think of I would be more than happy to answer you!

Musically yours,
Grant

I am here to combine my academic teaching background with my guitar/music background. I have been playing for many years and I enjoy almost all types of music. I use many resources depending on what the student wants to learn. I can teach all ages and all learning backgrounds, I will adapt the instruction to what your strengths are.

About Rob
I am an easy going, knowledgable and creative teacher. I strive to put the students and their personal needs first. I'm very aware that each student/person learns differently and I incorporate various strategies of learning into my lessons. There is a lot of humor and dialogue with my lessons, allowing my students the freedom to be themselves while playing.

As a school teacher, I have lots of experience in building student confidence and knowledge. If you aren't confident then you aren't progressing!

I like to record my students at different intervals of their education so they can hear the progress! I email a lesson recap after every lesson so that the student can see what we learned that week, including any notes/attachments for the student to review.

I also encourage my students to text/email/ or call with any questi
ons/concerns between lessons. This gives my students the ability to get through a challenging or difficult concept/strategy when its happening and not have to wait till the next lesson.

Lessons are fun, laid-back, and practical. Each lesson is customized for the student's needs. Lessons are about making the learning process as enjoyable as possible. This is accomplished by playing songs that students choose (or that are recommended and the student likes) that gradually introduce new skills and concepts. This way, they're learning songs they love while becoming a better player. They will gradually learn the skills needed to reach their goals and enjoy playing on their own. For younger students, they usually want to play guitar because it seems fun but they often quickly get discouraged because they feel they don't know enough to play their favorite songs. If this is the case, we'll focus on helping them understand basics they need to play that song they want to learn. They will have simple tools every week to help them play the song of their choice, and will be encouraged to bring in a new song they'd like to work on once finishing a previous one. For older students, ...

About Rachael
Hi! My name's Rachael- I'm 23 years old. I'm an artist and musician currently loving life in St. Louis, Missouri. I started teaching guitar out of a passion for music and people- I've been playing for 12 years, electric and acoustic. I am warm, friendly, and energetic, and love chatting and getting to know each student, helping them develop as a player while finding their unique style. During our lessons, we'll get a feel of what you'd like to accomplish as an individual. We'll find your strengths and weaknesses, emphasizing your strengths, and working on your weaknesses so you can play the music you love with ease. I look forward to meeting you, and helping you reach and exceed your goals!

Rachael is one of the best music teachers I’ve ever had. She is very encouraging and helps the students with whatever they’d like to learn. Her ability to listen to a song and figure out the chords, strum pattern, picking, and any other necessities truly astonished me. She is a lovely lady with a heart of gold, and someone I am glad to say I know. Rachael’s dedication to her students is something that I have never seen before and won’t be surprised if I do not see again. I am so proud that she has been apart of my life.

The Acoustic Guitar is just such an awesome instrument. I can show you how to healthily play a number of styles. From specific pedagogy to just helping you sing and play chords, I got you.

About Kenny
I am a professional working musician and a licensed K-12 instructor in the State of Louisiana, having graduated from Loyola University New Orleans with a Bachelors of Music Education, with a Minor in Jazz Studies in the spring of 2016. I play the guitar (electric, steel/ nylon string acoustic), the trombone (tenor/ bass), and the drums (kit).
Guitar students can and should expect to improve in some facet every week after every lesson. Every person approaches music differently, and thereby, approaches the guitar differently. Different bodies mean different physical methods for successful playing. Different brains mean different musical realities- and whatever the state of yours is, I want to help you make it better.
There are so many different ways to be musical, and as your teacher I want to make you aware of them, and help you use every
tool in your toolbox, as well as give you some new ones. Music is not too vast to understand, and all it takes is one little push to be off on your way, making your own musical adventures.
As someone who has thrived in most ensemble scenarios from Concert Bands, Orchestras, Big Bands, to Rock Bands and Jazz Combos, I can help prepare you for any musical undertaking. I love students who love music and want to get better at it, regardless of what style it might be in.
So whoever you are, whatever you like, and wherever your skills are at, I want to help- to impart you with skills and knowledge you might need to play at the level you want. I look forward to meeting you and helping you be even more awesome!

Josh is an incredible musician, teacher, guitar, and bass player (haven't tried his singing lessons yet). His knowledge on both theoretic and practical aspects of music (acquired during his studies as well as several tours with world class bands) is very broad which makes his lessons fun and dynamic, a major plus for motivation and learning process.
With his "hands on" guitar lessons we quickly built a fun song's set which was custom made for my skills level at the time. Led Zeppelin's "Black Dog" was among one of the first songs I learned, and by then I had basic chord's as well as a couple major scale positions knowledge.
I ve been seeing Josh (lately via Skype, which saves me 1 hour a day in commute) for the past 3.5yrs and nowadays I am actually playing with a band which goes live every now and then, despite my challenging 10+ daily work hours.
Josh was instrumental to keep me motivated all the time, I strongly recommend giving him a try.

Josh Lattanzi is an excellent guitar teacher. He is a knowledgable, skilled and accomplished musician who has really helped me make sense of what has always been a confusing instrument for me.

Josh's style is patient, supportive and also very funny. He's the reason I love playing guitar and didn't get scared off by bar chords.

He also can play absolutely anything, and tailors my lessons to help me play the kind of stuff I write the best possible way. I am really grateful to be taught by him and will continue to take lessons as long as he's teaching.

Where do I start?

Josh Lattanzi's guitar lessons are simply the best. I started taking lessons with Josh after I graduated college. I was moving to New York to pursue songwriting and found Josh's website online, deciding to try out a lesson based on his experience as a musician and a teacher.

Now, over five years later I can confidently say that if I hadn't chosen Josh my career as a songwriter would be completely different. He goes above and beyond for his students.

I am simply incredibly lucky to have taken that initial step of a first lesson with Josh of NYC Guitar Lessons.

Josh is a patient, focused but fun teacher. His breadth and depth of knowledge of music, guitar and other instruments is extensive, and lends to thorough and thoughtful teaching.

The thing that I love most about taking lessons with Josh is that he is incredibly flexible, willing and able to tailor each student's lessons based on what their ultimate guitar goals are. It made it easy to refer friends to him that wanted to lean basics of guitar and suggest lessons to friends in the songwriting community who had more specific goals in mind.

I really can't speak highly enough about my experiences as an NYC guitar lessons student with Josh.

The Acoustic Guitar is a beautiful instrument that can often prove hard for beginners! My approach brakes down playing guitar into its simplest technical and musical parts to save unwanted frustration and instead, provide a comfortable, confident foundation for students to accomplish their goals with the instruments. Lessons prepare students to play songs, read chords, and a variety of other skills. As an acoustic guitar player, I have years of accompaniment experience as both a singer song writer and children's entertainer.

About Max
I am a professional drummer, hand drummer, music producer and recording artist. I graduated from the Eastman School of Music with a degree in music education and percussion performance. I am a New York State Certified music educator with over 6 years of private and classroom teaching experience.

As a teacher, I give 100% of my effort to make sure students are seeing real, measurable learning happening every week. Its my passion to make music fun and accessible to every learner, no matter of skill, age or background. I believe in an individualized teaching approach that caters to needs of every unique student, because I believe whole heartedly that every person is capable of learning music, they just need the right tools to know how.

I have studied and worked as a professional drummer, hand drummer, and classical percussionist for more
the 10 years. I perform and record with bands, ensembles and singer song writers in Brooklyn and New York City, and have played with professional orchestras and in opera productions. I can teach students music reading, expert technique and any rhythms or style of music they are passionate about. I want every musician I work with to eventually have freedom, confidence, and creative expression on their instrument.

I have been playing classical and contemporary piano for more the 12 years. I can teach students to read music and pursue advanced classical ability, to learn how to play popular music using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student.

Through collegiate teacher training, I can teach the following instruments to beginners of all ages in a physically healthy and cognitively appropriate way. I offer the most natural approach to these instrument with to goal of getting students playing songs and playing as quickly and efficiently as possible. (Guitar, Bass, Ukulele, Trumpet, Violin, Clarinet).

Music production, recoding and song writing have been a part of my professional music career for the the last 5 years and I have recorded and produced scores for films, recorded albums, and live performances. I offer lessons in learning how to record and use professional music production software. Record your own music, and mix it into music that you have share to major platforms like spotify and itunes.

I have almost 4 years of experience in the field of early childhood music education (age 2-7), which aids the early development of a child's musical skills and abilities.

I'll teach you acoustic guitar across any genre; I am proficient in rock, pop, blues, funk, jazz, classical and some flamenco with respective picking, fingerpicking and other playing styles.

About Adrian
A great teacher or mentor or even friend can help shape one's life. I have had the great privilege to have been taught by some of the best and brightest musicians around the world and know first hand how mentors can awe one with infinite possibilities and opportunities that await in the world of sound. I only aim to give back some of this magic, and keep this wonder alive and spreading among everyone.

I have been playing guitar since I was 11 years old, producing music since I was 12 years old and have been actively involved in the recording and live music scenes of Las Vegas since the age of 14. I attended the Las Vegas Academy as a Guitar Major and recently graduated with my Associates of Business degree from CSN. I have a wealth of experience and knowledge that I would absolutely love to share with you.

To learn something, you m

What better way to learn is there than to jump straight into the madness with someone (yours truly) who is already obsessed and constantly learning new things about all music and sounds?!

Let me help you realize and actualize the musical potential that you never knew you had!

I offer lessons in both classical and fingerstyle guitar (especially for open tunings like DADGAD, for which I have published two books with Mel Bay). I tailor my lessons to the individual, but I like to concentrate on both technique and overall musical expression. When called for, I offer assistance in basic theory, including rhythm, chord structure, and melodic playing--and can teach both standard notation and tablature. One of my classical guitar students has commented, Julie "has patiently brought me through increasingly more difficult technique by choosing a wide variety of challenging but enjoyable pieces to practice. I am gradually working my way up the fret towards the 5th position. She has helped me with theory, including rhythm, the major and minor scales and chord building. Her empathy is a particular blessing for me because of my poor eyesight and the arthritis in my wrists, hands and fingers.”

About Julie
I am a professional musician, specializing in traditional American and Irish music and song; I can, however, also teach classical guitar and beginning-intermediate violin. My CD, "American Stranger," has received critical acclaim and I have authored two books on DADGAD guitar for Mel Bay Publications.

I taught myself guitar at the age of thirteen, but took three years of lessons at Washington University, where I also studied English and French. As an adult I became interested in fingerstyle guitar in open tunings, especially DADGAD. I am, however, happy to teach in standard tuning--including basic guitar proficiency, classical guitar, and "folk" guitar.

I have played violin since I was eleven, taking lessons until the age of sixteen and playing in both high school orchestra and the local youth symphony. I later learned to sus
pend much of my classical technique in order to play both old-time and traditional Irish fiddle as authentically as possible; but I still retain my initial training and apply good basic violin technique to my fiddle and (of course) her violin teaching, while tailoring it to the musical idioms of each of students.

I have also studied voice, which again, however, I have never allowed to interfere with my performance of traditional songs--largely because I had developed a traditional approach to the singing of both American southern mountain repertory and traditional Irish song many years before receiving any formal instruction. This training, however, has given me greater insight into how to get the most out of your voice for almost any style.

I also taught myself to play lap dulcimer, basing my approach on the Eastern Kentucky styles associated with Jean Ritchie, Barbara Edwards, and Anne MacFie—that is, primarily using a small dowel stick or noter to sound the melody, and playing counter-melodies for song accompaniments.

My clawhammer banjo-playing is influenced by various Appalachian instrumentalists and accompanists (including Dock Boggs, Clarence Ashley, Hobart Smith, and Lily May Ledford), but my style is also influenced by years of playing with midwestern and southern-style fiddlers.

I welcome students ages 10 or above, and have learned to adapt my teaching style to the individual student, helping each one to make the most of his or her talents and enthusiasms, while emphasizing sound technique and good practice habits.

I loved working with Julie. She considered what my goals were for playing and the playing style I was interested in. She then guided my lesson practice toward those goals, while at the same time making sure I was getting the underlying foundational principles to build upon. I'm off to a good strong start and I'm certain I will continue to build my skills and enjoy playing music for many years.

Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. For my beginner students. I must admit I was intimidated of the guitar at first. I can make this a less daunting encounter, because after all, guitar should be liberating not crippling. I will teach music theory, and ear pitch training as well as proper technique. I have been playing guitar for just over 10 years and I am so passionate about my guitar that I now want to share this joy with as many as possible. I took lessons from the student of the student of the legendary Joe Perry! My main area of focus is on classic rock. AC/DC, Aerosmith, Pink Floyd etc. I have been perfecting the art of matching, as close as possible, the most influential artists tone and playing styles. I can show you how to achieve this as well. You be playing your favorite songs and knee-buckling solos in no time!

About David
Guitar Lessons:
I have been jamming with my friends for years replicating some of the most iconic guitar musical pieces to come from the 60's, 70's and 80's. I have been playing for 15 years and have a more specialized pocket of knowledge than other teachers. I can teach anyone from never picked up a guitar know nothing about music all the way to a proficient player that wants to learn how to play or sound like their favorite guitarist/band. I am starting to teach and I would like to build a good reputation. I would love the opportunity to be the the teacher to you.

Algebra Lessons:
In middle school I found that I had a penchant for math. I was always in the 98-100% range every marking period and that continued all through out high school. I have been giving tutoring lessons through out my high school years. I graduated with honors f
rom Danville High School. My most satisfying accomplishment has to be helping my best friend literally graduate. He was taking Pre-Alegbra and was barley passing. He calls at 11 pm with the final at 8:30 am that decides if he passes or fails and can graduate. I stayed up and reviewed the entire years curriculum until 7 am the next day. Needless to say he passed and was able to graduate with us. Ever since I wanted to help anyone that needs help understand the challenging subject of mathematics. I hope I can can do the same for you.
