Private Guitar Teacher

Transcend the instrument and be able to play with anything. Learn your favorite tunes by ear and on the guitar. That is what I focus on. From beginning rudiments all the way through completely breaking down and conceptualizing the fretboard.

I've been playing for 20 years and have studied jazz at Peabody Conservatory and Berklee College of Music. However, I have played in bluegrass, rock, funk, hip hop and klezmer bands, as well.

I try to create an individual approach for each student because every person learns uniquely. I work with people on skills that apply to music at large, as well as the guitar 🎸. My goal is to help a student learn how to learn on their own, and provide the tools to do so.

Private Guitar Teacher

I love teaching music! I have been a professional guitar instructor for over 8 years. Through attentive one on one instruction I develop a program to suit the player's goals. I emphasize technique with drills designed to raise my students' skills evenly across a wide range of categories, like picking, fretting, scale patterns, chord shapes, chord progressions, rhythm training, and ear training. I can guide a complete beginner toward being able to play songs and have fun. For the more serious student I have a plan that will make you a better player and musician guaranteed.

Nancy
My son has a great student–teacher relationship. It takes the right teacher to help enjoy learning while challenging him to improve with each lesson and not to short any song. Steve's online sound experience has really impressed us.
Dale Smith
I played an organ years ago ( I am 70 years old) and lost a lot of skills. I now have a digital piano, but I was not satisfied with my progress.

So I signed up for lessons with Steve. I took piano lessons from Steve for about 18 months. I moved about an hour away, so it was not practical to continue with him.

The lessons from Steve were exactly what I was looking for. He figured out my skill level and set up a plan for me. He stressed the fundamentals while teaching a song at the same time. Being able to play a song, even a simple one, was a great reward. Then we progressed to develop more skills and more interesting songs.

Steve is patient, attentive and a good coach. He genuinely loves teaching and finds that “spark” in to build on. I saw this many times as I would listen to him teaching the student before me.

Steve is a great teacher and I strongly recommend him.
Nicole
Steve is a great instructor and took the time to work through any challenges and helped our son grow as a drummer. He has a great virtual setup that makes it sound you are in the studio with him.

"I really enjoy taking lessons with Ryan and without equivocation consider him to be one of the best instructors I've had the privilege of working with. I am in my 40's and have taken many music lessons throughout the course of my life (piano, organ, guitar, sax, etc.). Being a musician our minds approach things in a very creative manner which can make learning new material challenging. Although we are all seeking the same end, different approaches need to be utilized to achieve that goal. Its clear after working with Ryan that he is very aware of these hurdles students face, most likely because he's experienced the same issues himself as a student and as a teaching professional. He clearly sets himself apart from other teachers by not forcing the same cookie-cutter approach on his students. Although we all need to understand, learn and apply fundamentals, which can be very mundane, Ryan has developed a very unique and creative approach that presents these ideas in a less cumbersome manner. An approach that at least to me seems easier to grasp and further put into practice. Ryan also understands we want to take what we learn and be able to apply it in a practical setting quickly. Let's face it...we want to play guitar and make music, not sound mechanical by playing scales. Ryan has developed a lesson plan that accomplishes all of these goals and does so in a very enjoyably, fun and rewarding way. Ryan has opened up a world to me that I never thought I would enjoy based on past lesson experiences. I am very thankful to have him as my instructor. He has totally blown away my privious conceptions of what a guitar instructor is and what they need to be to pass on that knowledge capital to their students."

"I've been taking lessons with Eric for about 6 months once a week for 1h online, we have been mostly focusing on lead guitar playing. Before that I couldn't really play solos, now I can play solos of about 19 songs to some extent, some better than others. I got to a level when I can learn new solos on my own of most songs that I like, which was way too hard just half a year ago. Eric is a great teacher, very knowledgeable about all things related to a guitar."

"I've been enjoying weekly lessons with Eric for about 3 months now and I'm stoked with my progression. Eric's lessons are challenging, thorough, and fun. Thanks to Eric I'm reading and writing music again, learning a variety of songs from some of the greats such as SRV, Hendrix, and Gary Moore, and exploring the world of jazz guitar - something I'd never thought I'd do.

He's the master."
