I have 30 years experience in playing and teaching many styles, including rock, folk, classical, and jazz, I have played classical guitar at weddings for over 30 years, both as a soloist and with ensembles. I have put together occasional jazz groups. I am also familiar with much rock and folk music, especially from the '60s.

About Geoff

I played on a toy piano when I was very young, learning a bit of sight reading from my Mother, while listening to classical, jazz, and rock music. When I was 12, I learned guitar and later took private piano lessons from a prominent Philadelphia instructor. After playing in a rock band in high sc

I totally enjoyed my class with Geoff. We immediately started my lesson with tuning the ukulele. Then we went over the cords and strumming. I have been researching on playing the ukulele and his explanation on the strumming was a lot better than the book. He is teaching me how to play by listening to the notes which is great because I would be able to play the Hawaiian music for my hula classes. In addition, his studio is only a 5 minute drive from my house, which means I don’t have to deal with traffic.

Want to play your favorite songs? Want to write your own? While focusing primarily on technique and theory, we'll also spend at least part of each lesson being creative together, whether improvising, or writing something, or just playing a game, because I believe that to be a well-rounded musician is to know how to communicate one's own ideas fluently. We'll also explore a variety of styles, including rock, country, pop, folk, and jazz, and we will learn songs using both a pick and our fingers. I can also teach students to actually read music and not just tablature, if they're interested in exploring jazz and classical music. Message me today to see if we'd be a good match!

About Kyle

I am a professional violinist, violist, guitarist, pianist, composer, and educator. In addition to recording and touring with my own bands, I regularly arrange and record strings for artists and producers in a wide range of styles, from underground rappers to indie rock bands to grammy winning pop

Want to play guitar in your own style? Dreaming of the big stage, or wanting to record your own music? With over 25 years of music experience, most of it in guitar, I can help.

I have been playing guitar since I was 10, and have played for crowds large and small. I’m also a guitar performance major at Berklee College of Music, learning from great guitarists from all over the world.

No matter what you want to play, I can help. I personally want to see people succeed at guitar, I think this challenging instrument is rewarding to those that give it time. A solid guitarist will be fluent in music theory and ear training and can apply that knowledge to any future musical endeavors.

About Chris

I have been playing guitar most of my life on stages big and small. Even when I had a responsible “day job”, music has always been the heart of my life and I am looking forward to sharing that gift with others. I am currently going to Berklee College of Music as a guitar performance major and I

"I have had a year's worth of lessons with Michael- our first lesson was 1 Feb 2016. When we hit our anniversary, I wrote down what I was able to accomplish because of his efforts in helping me to learn to play the guitar. I went from knowing NOTHING about the guitar to playing in 3 regular "gigs" (as he calls them) during our 1 year of lessons together. I would call that a success.

I had the guitar for a year before lessons, but with only using Youtube video tutorials and zero experience, I was not dedicated enough to learn anything on my own. So, that guitar just sat there until I ran across this site and chose Michael for my very first lesson, 1 Feb 2016. Well it is now 1 year later and after a year's worth of lessons, I want to publish a review. Michael was very patient with me. I am a very busy homeschooling mom. Originally, I signed up for guitar lessons thinking that it was an affordable option for me to learn and then teach my children- but it ended up being really fun for me to be able to play a tune all on my own! Well, after only 6 months of hard work, I joined (and still continue to play) on my church's praise and worship team. Michael helped me with questions about the music I was given to play. I knew NOTHING before and now I am on a worship team! I have also been asked to play in other places- it is all because of this teacher. I had A LOT of questions and Michael did an exceptional job explaining things without the frustration I would have had since I am not able to physically touch their guitar or their fingers. Before I joined the team, I emailed Michael songs that I was interested in learning how to play and he figured out the chords and strumming patterns and would teach me the song. He would record himself playing back the song (slow and then normal tempo) as well as provide a written tab or whatever it was that I needed in order to "get it."

I made a recording to document my journey (video below with a link to the written part). I know it's not the best, but I know from where I came and how far I had come with the guitar. If you are looking for a teacher who takes any kind of music that you are interested in and helps you reach your goals- whatever they might be for the guitar- then this guy is your guy. Thank you Michael for all of your hard work. Also, thank you for for being so patient with me when I did not do my homework as much as I should have. Your accountability and grace kept me going. Look at me now!!! https://youtu.be/l8yixvi1ohM"

My son looks forward to Jarred coming every week and has made leaps and bounds since starting lessons not too long ago. Jarred comes well prepared and organized to the lessons, and I am amazed at how far my son has come. I can’t recommend Jarred enough!"

"Paul is AMAZING! He is the best music teacher I've ever had. He makes the class so fun and enjoyable, and he makes me love acoustic guitar even more. I started to take lessons with Paul as a beginner knowing nothing about acoustic guitar, and have learned so much from him. He is so patient and knowledgeable, he is able to answer all kinds of questions that I have relating to guitar and music. He has AWESOME personality, when you take lessons with him, time flies. He is very good at learning a new song quickly. Sometimes I pick songs that I want to learn, and show these songs to him during class, some of the songs that he has never heard before, he can recognize the chords right away, and wrote them down and teach me how to play. He is a great teacher, you won't be regretted to take his class!"

"I've been taking lessons with Jimmy for over a year now. He's a great instructor and really takes the time out to ensure I understand and grasp all the concepts he teaches. Learning in his studio has been fun and inspiring because I get to experience what it's like to record music. It's also a very useful in hearing myself recorded so I can play it back and see where I can improve. Jimmy is a great guy and a true professional. I would highly recommend taking lessons with him."

"My 7-year-old daughter started guitar lessons in March 2014 with Calvin as a beginner. He immediately engaged her by finding out her favorite songs and using those songs as very effective teaching tools, with such patience and enthusiasm. She has been learning to read music and play, and she's come so far already due to his incredible talent and his way of being able to break things down to teach them in a way that really reaches her! He's also very reliable, always on time. I couldn't be happier with Calvin's teaching, and I highly recommend him!"
