Private Guitar Teacher

I tried to teach guitar in the same manner in which I teach every instrument. First I teach students the rudiments of the instrument. Also I teach them how to read and a bit of music theory. From that point I like to follow the students lead. They bring in songs that they would like to learn, or possibly how to play lead guitar, or how to finger pick. At every point I try to point out general aspects of music that need to be learned from the material that they choose.

About John

Hello, Thanks so much for taking the time to inquire about studying music with me. Music and studying music has always been a passionate experience for me. I have been so blessed with the teachers and fellow musicians in my life. You should realize that your study of music may start with me,

Amazing!!! A bright, joyful light!

My experience with Kathy has been great. It's been roughly five months and I learned a lot and I'm also much more confident to sing. Learning the right techniques is crucial. Kathy is extremely patient and she adapts the classes to the student goals and aspirations. English is not my first language and she was also always very respectful and patient in explaining everything twice or maybe three times until I get it.

Kathryn has a terrific demeanor, and provides clear, thoughtful suggestions for technique!

Curtis is a fantastic teacher! He is patient, enthusiastic, and encouraging. He teaches the type of songs you want to learn and not some song from a guitar guidebook. My first lesson was two hours and it quickly went by. I learned a lot, had a lot of fun and am looking forward to my next lesson. If you are in search of a guitar instructor, I would highly recommend him.

I’ve been taking lessons with Alan for a while now. He is very knowledgeable about music and ties in playing music to the theory behind it to make it easier to understand. He is very patient and caters it to your level and skill. Alan has also been extremely accommodating with my crazy, ever changing schedule. Great teacher!

Great intro Class! Very excited to be moving forward with lessons in vocals
Doug
Storm is an amazing teacher, and I've learned so much from our lessons. He's patient, knowledgeable, and always willing to answer your questions (even outside of the lesson). He creates a plan for each student and makes sure you are progressing. I've learned more about guitar in 6 months with Storm than the previous 20 years of me trying to learn on my own. Highly recommended!
Tracy
Storm well surpassed my expectations for our lesson! He is extremely patient, clear, and knowledgeable on Wordpress and a great communicator to boot. He operates with the utmost integrity ensuring he was prepared and well versed in my questions and account beforehand. I couldn't recommend him more! Can't wait for my next lesson. Great platform as well!

Hi!

I offer engaging and personalized guitar lessons for students. We build upon fundamentals skills through each lesson as the student learns their favorite songs. We also explore different aspects of music including improvisation, theory, composition, and even recording their own music. I provide study materials such as PDF files, backing tracks and videos to help students review what we cover in the lessons.

I had the privilege of receiving my B.A. in Guitar Performance from Berklee College of Music where I had the opportunity of learning and performing with great musicians from around the world. Because of my experience working with students of all ages from kids to adults, I truly believe that I can help anyone accomplish their musical goals!

I am currently only doing online lessons on Skype.

I look forward to meeting you and getting you started with lessons!

Best,

Juan

"I had basically no experience when I started taking lessons with Aaron and he was incredibly helpful and patient as he started me off from the basics of tuning, chords, etc. into more complex chord switching and actually playing songs.

The experience taking lessons with Aaron has been amazing and I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for an extremely knowledgable and patient instructor!"

"This was the first lesson. I'm starting from scratch with learning all about the guitar. Most of the lesson was spent with Kevin trying to show me how to tune my new guitar. Then there was a glitch with my trying to download the guitartuna app he recommended, so that didn't work. Little disappointed. By lesson #2, my guitar should be fine-tuned. Kevin provided practice lessons. I look forward to practice practice practice. Kevin was patient, very knowledgeable, and seems like a great instructor to learn from. I look forward to the next lesson."

"Carla has escalated both my acoustic and electric guitar playing to unexpected levels, from just strumming songs to actually including licks, riffs, and leads to sound more like the pros.
with her experience and knowledge, she has filled in critical lapses in my musical theory. Later, I decided to learn short-scale bass, and Carla was right there to show me the way.
If you've EVER wanted to learn (or pick back again) any style of guitar, bass, electric, acoustic, keyboard, piano, ukulele, kazoo, (or whatever) contact Carla ASAP for lessons. She gives lessons to students all across the USA, ONLINE through Skype, Zoom, FaceTime, or any conference app you want to use, at your convenience, NEVER needing to drive through Jersey, and never needing to leave your home.
She custom tailors lessons to all levels. Great experience! Students even "Zoom" in to perform at her recitals on a big screen TV. Give her a call, she's the rare, amazing, patient teacher you've been searching for. You won't be disappointed."
