Private Guitar Teacher

While teaching bass is my specialty, I've been teaching guitar for 4 years and have amassed quite the collection. The overwhelming majority of my students at the shops I teach at take lessons on guitar, so most of my time is actually spent teaching guitar. In lessons, we'll cover basic chords, scales, and rhythms, as well as some introductory music theory so the student knows why they're playing what they play.

About Tommy

My name is Tommy. I've been playing bass and guitar since I was 11 years old. When I was in high school, I won my school's Duke Ellington Jazz Performance Award my junior year. Around this time I began to work at my neighborhood's local lesson shop Let's Play Music! off of W Broad Street in Falls C

Private Guitar Teacher

I've been teaching String Instruments like Guitar and Violin for Beginners and Intermediate level for many years. My students get to know all the parts of their string instruments like the guitar, from frets to strings, and learn how to tune their own instrument. After that, they will explore the fundamentals of music notation and find out how to produce clear, beautiful notes and chords

Enrolling in this course will take your musical talent to the next level. By the time you're finished, you'll be well on your way to becoming a skilled guitar player.

This has been an amazing process with my God son. He has ADHD and while initially he had some difficulty being focused he is beginning to slow down and is grasping the ability to learn. Wilma is very patient and an excellent instructor. We really approach her.

Great teacher! My daughter lover her guitar classes.
Jessica S.
So far only taken one lesson, but I really enjoyed her energy and enthusiasm, and I loved that her classes have structure and homework and focus! Really looking forward to more lessons :)
Lyle
I decided to write an updated review after roughly a year of lessons. I feel fortunate to have connected with Lena as she has exactly the balance of skills I needed for my musical goals. Having an instructor that has performed live, that understands the realities of being on a stage, and can still give you all of the detailed work needed to improve vocals, songwriting, instrumentation... I really don't think you can go wrong here. You don't have to play live to get the benefit, but finding someone who can guide you through both music and performance was not an easy search. 5/5 rating from me.

After earning my BA in Economics at Harvard, I followed my true passion and began playing music professionally. I'm a Berklee Music College Alumnus, and I did learn a lot there. My guitar heroes: Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jerry Garcia, Eric Clapton, Jimi Paige, John Lee Hooker, Duane Allman and Dickey Betts. I love all the inspired by the greats, but as well as listening to my favorite guitarists, I also listen to just about everything under the sun, and appreciate all types of music.

"Just had my first 1-on-1 guitar lesson with Ahmad today. The best part is that you really get individual attention and a customized package. (I have pretty complex taste for different kinds of stuff these days. Facing music, I am like a baby still trying to figure out things.) The booking of classes was super easy and hassle-free.
Ahmad was efficient and helpful, so lessons are indeed of very good value.
Everything's looking good! Playing guitar and immersing yourself in the music make you feel even better, always!! =)"

"At 37 I assumed I had missed the boat on ever learning the guitar but Scott is doing a great job of proving me wrong. He presents the material in a way that is both fun and engaging. After the first lesson, only knowing some absolute basics, he has you playing notes and making actual music. Quantifiable progress."

"I am so happy to have this opportunity to review Rodrigo Rodríguez. I have learned so much with him over the several years that I have been studying with him! He has totally transformed my guitar playing and has helped me to achieve my specific goals which are: To learn to play rhythmically with my right hand, to learn the fretboard better so that I can play more advanced songs, and to learn the repertoire of Spanish language music. He is so knowledgeable and talented! I have learned styles and songs from him from many different countries - Argentina, Peru, Bolivia, Cuba, Colombia, and Mexico. In addition to all of that, he is a first rate human being who I feel fortunate to know! So, do yourself a favor and take lessons from him. He is a great teacher!"

Do You Have The Right Strings On Your Guitar?

Each year the CMT honors country music stars at their Artists of the Year celebration - 2011's honorees included Brad Paisley, Jason Aldean and Kenny Chesney.  Before they were stars, however, they had to work up their guitar skills from the very beginning.
