On guitar, I will guide students through their first chords, to their first songs, all while maintaining a fun environment.

After the first few chords, we will talk about music theory, building your own progressions, and even writing your own songs!

We will also learn scales to get you started soloing and playing great sounding licks!

From day one, Cassie has not only been enthusiastic about music, but also about creating a relationship with my daughter. I can visibly see progress in my daughter's understanding of rhythm in what we listen to and she loves to create games around the subject. We look forward to an ongoing relationship with Cassie.

We love Cassie! My son, who struggles to focus, loves his time with her...from learning rudiments to playing the music that HE loves. She’s a fantastic drummer AND teacher!

Great first lesson with Avi! Really enjoyed it, laid back and fun!
David N.
Avi has been teaching me for four months and somehow he has turned me into a semi-decent guitar player. I didn’t think it was possible to make so much progress so fast but it’s all due to Avi. I cannot imagine a better teacher. Knowledgeable, patient, kind and just has a way to take music from a page to the student’s hands. If I could give Avi six stars, I would.

wonderful books for ages 5 through Adult. Also a great way to sing and read music while playing an instrument. My teaching method includes notation if you haven’t studied a prior instrument . Books can also take in your specific interests, rock, jazz, country, after basic concepts . I first learned guitar so I could accompany myself singing and played in the church contemporary group. I love teaching and meeting people, and I promise you will enjoy your lessons.

Hi there. I'm Andrew. I have been teaching for about 10 years now and it has become one of the things I truly love to do. When I am not writing, reading, gigging, touring, or recording, I love to teach people the things that have made my life so colorful.

With a little push in the right direction, you can become an active participant in the things you love. No more watching from the sidelines. Become the musician, writer, speaker, reader that you have always wanted to be. It's never too late! Trying something new or asking for help can be intimidating, but I am happy to show you that the rewards far exceed the costs. Trust me, I speak from experience. I've taught personalized lessons for nearly 10 years now without a single complaint. At this point in my musical career, the majority of my experience and attitude has come from being "in the field". I've played everything from small dive bars to music festivals with crowds of thousands and been on tour and lived the whole life more ...

About Andrew

Music is my life. As cheesy as that phrase goes, for me, it holds true. Everything I do and have been doing has been geared towards music. I've been in one working/gigging band or other without break for the past 10 years. I began intensely learning to play guitar at the age of 9 and have not stop

"Personable, talented, time efficient, prompt and communicative. I'm so incredibly happy we found Moa and she keeps exceeding expectations.
My 8 yr old daughter looks forward to her lessons and complains that they aren't longer. Also we really love that Moa encourages singing development while engaging the guitar.
The other instructors we tried were good, but they still are nowhere near the teaching prowess and energy of Moa."

"A couple of years ago I dabbled in guitar playing and recently decided to take my playing a bit more seriously. Then, I found Ben Zinn. He is a highly proficient guitarist and a phenomenal guitar teacher.

Ben’s wide-range of musical knowledge and background enables me to learn at a much quicker pace than I expected. His patience in teaching allows us to communicate as teacher and student very well. I feel comfortable expressing my musical goals with him. He takes the time to help me understand the structure of what I’m learning without over burdening me with theory.

Ben has the flexible approach to training that caters to the individual student and keeps lessons fun and interesting while maintaining solid progress to individual goals.

He is an ultra-talented musician in his own right, but knows how to “break it down” to nice bite-sized pieces for beginning musicians such as myself. Moreover, he’s one of the nicest guys you’ll meet.

If you’re looking for someone who brings out the real joy in playing the guitar, Ben is your instructor. I encourage anyone looking to finally learn the guitar to sign up for lessons with Ben."

"Infectious Enthusiasm

What makes Ryan a terrific instructor is more than just his extensive guitar knowledge. It's more than the personalized curriculum and patient approach he offers to each student. It's even more than his great sense of humor and the encouragement he brings to each lesson. What makes Ryan a truly great instructor becomes apparent within moments of meeting him: this dude LOVES the guitar. Simple as it sounds, the sheer enthusiasm he has for the instrument is infectious and carries over into his lessons in such a way that you can't help but take it home with you. Learning a new instrument can be a daunting and difficult journey, but you will not find an instructor more willing to guide you through it than Ryan."

"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."

5 Tips for Smooth and Efficient Guitar Chord Transitions

Beginning guitar lessons is an exciting thing - learning the notes, building your first chord, and of course, playing your first song.  However, it's not all sunshine and roses.  Learning to play takes commitment, practice and the motivation to get over some common beginner hurdles.  First, the painful process of building calluses can drive many to stop practicing.  Second, there's always that awkward stage of learning to seamlessly transition to different chords.  You know the drill -  pr …
