Private Guitar Teacher

I love teaching music. I first picked up my first guitar when I was 13, and haven't put it down since! I've had many different teachers over the years, but the ones that helped me grow the most, were the most patient, understanding, and encouraging. These are the values I bring to the forefront of my practice. I believe making music is something that everyone is able to do, when they find the process and conditions that work for them. It is my job to help you discover those things, and have fun in the process!

The guitar is a miraculous instrument because of its distinctiveness and versatility. It can sing lead, or backup the rhythm section. The direction you choose to pursue on the instrument is entirely unique to your experience and perspective. I've learned to create a wide range of sounds on the guitar from blues and rock to folk and soul, by playing with many different types of musicians over the years. I look forward to helping you learn the patterns and principals of music ...

About Scott

Hello fellow music lover! My name is Scott, and I'm a musician with 15+ years of performance experience. I've studied performance at Berklee College of Music and performed in various configurations from funk/soul ensembles, to folk-rock bands and I write my own music that I perform as a solo art

Khalil
Great instructor with the knowledge to teach superbly, with the insight to reach high levels of efficiency!
Dan
Scott is a patient and supportive teacher. He helped me tap into my musical intuition while also supporting a practical understanding of music theory. Working with Scott felt like having a mentor, rather a teacher, to support me on my musical journey.
Kelly
Scott taught me introductory drums. Scott is warm, funny, and adaptable - he made learning fun and easy for me. I didn't feel dumb when I made mistakes, in no small part because Scott was very encouraging and pointed out the things I was doing well!

Another reason to take lessons with Scott - he's incredibly talented and plays multiple instruments. For example, I wanted to practice playing drums in a "band" setting, so Scott grabbed an electric bass and we started jamming.

10/10 would recommend, especially if you like laughing a lot while you learn a new skill!

I have been teaching guitar for 6 years. I have an earned Masters degree in music and enjoy teaching students of all ages. I am happily married with 5 children at home--4 of them are musicians as well (the youngest is 4).. Students will quickly learn not only the basics of music theory, but will be playing songs as early as their first lesson. It is extremely rewarding watching students have fun, excel, and fall in love with making music. I presently teach music at 3 schools (1 college) and only have a few lessons slots available. I look forward to working with you.

I have 3 earned degrees

I tailor my lessons to meet student goals. I help students learn basic chords and strumming patterns, learn to sing while playing, understand how to read notes, tabs and chord charts, understand power chords and basic music theory, play popular songs of the past or present, learn basic scales and improvisation skills, and even write their own songs! You can search my music on Spotify or iTunes for a sample of my style. My album is called "Songs from Pablo's Attic."

About Peter

I love sharing knowledge! Math has always been a passion for me, and I competed in several math competitions even in elementary school. Since then I have tutored many students in math from a fourth grade level to college math. I scored a 34 on the ACT and I enjoy helping others achieve their dreams

Peter has an excellent lesson plan waiting for you on day one with easy to follow study material. You will learn how to properly speak, read, and write in Italian in no time. He keeps track of your progress and assigns homework to increase your proficiency and vocabulary. He is a wealth of knowledge about the language and the culture; so much that he even knows how it changes throughout the country and will educate you on it. His experience in Italy was such a benefit for me because where I now live in Italy, the locals speak Neapolitan Italian and he was able to help me adjust to my new surroundings and even find a home! I recommend that you choose Peter as your new Italian instructor! You will not regret it!

Flamenco guitar lessons with Raphael are unique because he grew up, and studied in Spain. And knows all the secrets that you can only learn by living, and working with some of the best Flamenco artists of today. He can teach you how to accompany singing, and how to accompany dancers. As well as teaching full solo pieces. He has been playing guitar for over 25 years, and has toured the world. As well as playing in the opening ceremonies in Barcelona for the 1992 Olympics. He has worked artists such as El Farruquito, El Toromb, and El Manzanita. Just to mention a few. Raphael also speaks Spanish, German,and English. And is a very patient teacher, and gives great attention to detail.

I've worked with Raphael numerous times over the years. An excellent guitarist and teacher.
Stuart
I have been taking Flamenco Guitar lessons with Raphael since I moved to New York. It has been a wonderful experience! There are a few things about him that set him apart from other teachers i have worked with:
1. He is extremely patient - but at the same time points out when you are not in compas. If you have played flamenco before you know how important it is to get that correct - and he holds you accountable to the compas which is very helpful.
2. He intermixes exercises and falsetas in a helpful way. My fear with flamenco is that I wind up with a lot of falsetas that I can't really play right. Raphael is not afraid of giving you some exercises to grind on to get your techniques and timing up to par.
3. He is well connected in the NY flamenco world so you know what is happening and can hear a lot of flamenco out in the city.

My experience has been delightful. If you are looking to learn flamenco guitar and want to sound authentic and in compas- I would recommend Raphael unreservedly. Also he is a great guy to spend time with which is always a plus!
Nathalie
Raphael has been studying, teaching and performing throughout the United States and Europe with the top artists in the world of flamenco. Coming from an artistic family, he has grown up with the dedication,creativity and passion needed to become the unique musician he is. Raphael's vast knowledge and experience has helped people of all ages and levels of playing to learn, improve and grow.
Don't miss the opportunity to work with him!

"I found his teaching style very clear and rewarding; his approach seems to be especially effective for adults. He has sustained my attention for a long time, and has been very responsive to my learning needs (including special projects and questions) while keeping a very clear roadmap for learning music and the instrument.
He obviously has great musical talent, and his explanations and demonstrations are very clear. He has been super flexible and adaptable schedule-wise.
Overall, a pleasant, enriching and rewarding experience. Highly recommended!"

"Scott taught my daughter for maybe 6 or 7 years in our home. He always had an approach that included her voice in what and how she wanted to learn. I believe it was Scott's patience and kindness that helped her to stick with guitar for so long. She not only became an excellent guitarist, she was able to apply much of her learning to broader music theory and picked up other instruments including the drums. Scott feels like a family member now and we are all so grateful we found him!"
