I've been playing guitar and piano since I was little. I've been playing professionally since I was 16 and can cover many styles of music. Berklee College of Music graduate.
I really love teaching and try to incorporate new techniques and technologies into my lesson. It comes down to getting to know you and making the lessons relevant to you.

Mr. Tarantola has taught my three kids to play piano and to read music. Their confidence in their music abilities has grown over the years as they continue to learn. The skills they learned with Mr. Tarantola has helped them in school music, band and in learning new instruments such as drum set and clarinet. Mr. Tarantola has the ability and personality to teach all ages including new beginners such as I - who began lessons in my 40's. Highly recommend!

The first thing I do when I meet a student is to interview the student and find out why they want to learn how to play the guitar and what are some of their goals. Then I find out what style of music they would like to learn. I have the student come up with ten songs they would like to learn. I take this information and structure future guitar lessons around the essential elements of these songs. I design each lesson to teach the specific skills required to learn those songs. I create an organized binder guitar workbook and having a teaching degree I create all of the lessons to meet each students individual needs that include lessons on theory, technique, chords, rhythm, scales, arpeggios, songs, song form, and exercises etc. I use a color coded method to teach scales, chords and theory that I created that help students not only understand scales but also they are able to see visually where chords come from. I break down each song into easy digestible parts so students can learn a ...

I only have high accolades for David. I've learned more from David in the mere 5 lessons then I learned in a years worth of lessons in the past. His method of teaching is perfect with the right amount of homework. He customizes the lesson for the type of music I ultimately want to play with a good balance of theory and practical lessons to get me there. Bravo!!!

Lessons with David were very inspiring and so much fun. They were well planned, organized and productive. David also was very flexible and accommodating with scheduling the lessons.

Maria is by far the perfect person to start this journey with. Her knowledge is phenomenal, and I can't wait to keep growing in my singing abilities!!

Maria was teaching my daughter opera, she learned a lot and we'll seek her out again to continue. She is an expert in her field. My daughter loved her and everyone she encountered in the music industry wanted to learn how she learned this and how she learned that when we told them they said she had a good teacher. We'll be back Maria. Thanks for all you've shown her.

Have you always wanted to play the guitar but did not know where to start? Perhaps you've tried learning through videos, online guides, and books but couldn't quite grasp the content provided by the lessons. It can be very daunting and frustrating trying to learn something new and having no one to clarify the subject for you or no where to turn for questions. As a intermediate/advanced guitar player I am here to help! I am currently 23 years old and have been playing guitar for a little over 9 years. I am a self-taught guitarist and have taken some music theory courses in college. I have never taught lessons professionally but I can definitely teach you all I have learned from, general chords to fretting technique to basic leads and fingerstyle picking to rhythm/strumming and harmonics! I love playing a little bit of all genres. I am a very jovial and laid back person and I especially enjoy working with beginners and children as I know how stressful it can be learning to play an ...

From lessons with me, students can expect to learn the aspects of becoming their own effective teacher. They can also expect to relate the language of music to the guitar in order to avoid being in a 'rut'.

About Rio

Hi everyone, my name is Rio and I am from Texas. I started guitar lessons in January of 1986. I quickly developed because of an insatiable drive to create chill-inducing music, initially inspired by the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Randy Rhoads, Alex Lifeson and Eddie Van Halen.

Both excellent as a musician and as an instructor, Salvador is the kind of person I would gladly recommend for students of any age. Just don't be afraid to have fun!"

"Dennis has been my guitar teacher since May 2014, but he has really been much more than that. He has a great ability to create lessons that help you to understand the musical context behind the chords and notes. In the process of learning, you find yourself wanting to explore music theory and practice (not really two separate things in Dennis' world) even more, and I can honestly that I have learned so much not just from the guitar lessons themselves but but also from our conversations about music. If you want to make a long-term investment in learning the language of music and how it manifests itself on the fretboard and the vibrations of six steel/nylon strings, then I would recommend buying some of this stock!"
