I will adapt lesson style to your needs. If you want to learn how to sight read music, we will work with the Hal Leonard Guitar Method for Beginners. For children, I use the FJH Beginner Guitar Method series. If you want to learn to play chords and play your favorite songs, then we will use Guitar for Absolute Beginners by the NYC Guitar School. Along with these books we will also choose some of your favorite songs and learn to play them.

About Kelsey
I love singing! I've been singing for as long as I can remember, and I've been creating songs and playing guitar since shortly after that. I have a Bachelor's in Music from Cornerstone University in Grand Rapids, MI and I have been a full time working musician for 8 years.

In March 2017 I started a YouTube channel called, Simply Songcraft. I write a song week, and vlog about it. I also post weekly tutorials on songwriting, guitar, and voice.

I work on the foundations of good playing technique and musical knowledge through a close study of music that interests the student. As a guitarist, I've played and worked with students on Bach sonatas, Dylan/Donovan style fingerpicking, jazz comping and solos, rock, metal and punk riffs, Steve Vai-esque two-hand tapping, as well as songwriting, music theory, and aural skills, so no matter what kind of music you like or how you're looking to improve, chances are I can help take you do it. All levels and ages are welcome.

About Brendon
I am a composer, guitarist, arranger, engraver, and songwriter located in Brooklyn. I have taught extensively for the past ten years in a variety of settings, including teaching private guitar lessons at Saint David's School in Manhattan, teaching private composition lessons and TA'ing two electronic music courses at Yale, as well as teaching guitar and musicianship in public elementary and high schools in San Francisco and New Haven, as well as several private music schools and my own private guitar studio.

As a guitarist, I perform regularly with legendary NYC experimental groups the Glenn Branca Ensemble, Dither Quartet, and Object Collection, and freelance with groups such as the Atlanta Symphony, Ensemble Signal, and Magik*Magik Orchestra. I've played at the Barbican in London, Lincoln Center Out of Doors, the Kennedy Center in
Washington D.C., on the Beijing Modern Music Festival and the Ellnora Guitar Festival, among many others. As a composer, my work has received support from the Jerome Foundation, New York State Council for the Arts, the Guitar Foundation of America, the Foundation for Contemporary Arts, and ASCAP, and been performed by the Bang on a Can All-Stars, the Omaha Symphony, Dither, and Friction Quartet.

I am the co-founder of two groups: Invisible Anatomy, a composer/performer ensemble described as “sometimes haunting sometimes hilarious and consistently mesmerizing ” (I Care If You Listen) and “otherworldly and uncanny” (The Village Voice); and Marateck, “a gripping math-rock band...[that] manages to wring out everything that its guitar-bass-drums instrumentation (traditionally) has to offer, while still remaining focussed and direct” (Tone Madison).

My teachers and mentors have included Mark Stewart (Paul Simon's musical director), Pulitzer Prize-winning composer David Lang, and guitarist Jack Sanders (winner of the American Guitar Society's lifetime achievement award).

Whether you're learning to play and sing around the campfire, or want to be the nest biggest thing in music, learning the guitar is fun as well as challenging. Chords, note reading, modern tablature and easy songs are included in my introductory lessons. I teach song writing to intermediate students.

About Michele
I have been teaching strings, piano, harp and drums since 1999. Many of my students have studied with me for years and developed a lifelong love of music. Some have gone on to be professionals.

I have been tutoring music therapy students as well as teaching music composition for seven years.

I strive to help students achieve their musical goals however I can, but I do not tolerate laziness or half-hearted attempts.

Music can be a tool and thus, summers are dedicated to fun, composition and learning to record.

I teach all styles of steel string acoustic guitar. We will start with basic chords and strumming patterns and eventually work our way to advanced finger picking technique.

About Blake
Hi there! My Name is Blake C. II, I am 18 years old and I have been teaching guitar with my father, Blake Sr. of Blake C. Music, since 2012. Through these last few years working with my father, I have had the opportunity to teach people of all ages; children all the way up to adults who have been playing longer than I have been alive!

I have had the great fortune of having a dad who has been playing for over 30 years in all genres: rock, blues, classical, country, etc. My dad has taught me not only how to play guitar, but how to teach it to others in a way that makes sense; a way that makes learning guitar fun.

One major thing I have taken away from working, learning, and teaching with my dad is that technique is key! We do not teach to keep you coming back for years and years, we teach you how to ultimately learn by yourself usin
g the skills we have taught you.

Without practical application of the skills we teach, lessons would be a bore. So, many times we find songs that exemplify the skill we are working on. This makes the learning process fun and educational at the same time!

Steel string, classical, Spanish

About Darrell
Why these lessons are different:
- Formally trained conductor/composer/producer
- Individual or group session options including full band production
- A long roster of satisfied clients
- Broad base of musical styles (rock, classical, jazz, blues, metal, bluegrass, folk, theater, big band, symphonic, pop, punk, country, march, gospel, avant-garde...)
- Over 20 yrs teaching experience and work with recognized professionals including work in some of the top-rated private schools in the United States
- Over 30 years performing experience

Instrument-specific instruction:
- Voice
- Guitar [Spanish, acoustic, electric]
- Electric Bass
- Piano/Keyboard
- Woodwinds [specializing in saxophones]
- Percussion
- Brass & Bowed Strings [performance preparation only]

My process is based on (but does not adhere strictly to
) the Classical approach to Western tonal harmony and asks that the students develop certain fundamentals of technique and theory. In my experience, this structure creates the strongest foundation for pupils to build the rest of their musical lives on, whether professionally or solely for personal enjoyment. All of my students are on the fast track to studying music theory. Whatever level they are at when I start with them, I guide their efforts into bringing the students up to a certain level of comprehension regarding the mathematical aspects of music and how it relates to their instruments. This understanding of theoretical principles of sound allows the students to play any style of music they wish, no matter how their tastes may change throughout their lives.

Elements of pitch
Elements of dynamics
Elements of articulation
Reading/Writing notation

My 16 year old son loves his lessons with Darrell and looks forward to them every week. He'd been taking guitar lessons elsewhere that were okay-ish, but this is so much more. Darrell is great, not only does he get along with and make my son want to learn, but at the same time they are working on voice, he is also teaching keyboard and working on the guitar! We really couldn't have asked for a better instructor.

Whether you're tackling singer-songwriting, accompaniment, pop/rock, jazz/funk/r&b, or even classical exercises, I can help you. I've studied piano/voice/guitar long enough to know what each kind of instrumentalist/vocalist needs. I'm well versed in a overview of all genres and styles, as well as specialized areas of study. As a writer, I'm also very familiar with coaching instrumentalists geared towards composition and arranging. If you're looking to improve your skills, I can help!

About Jake
I want to teach the material that excites students. After a handful of really crummy experiences with teachers who wanted me to learn a specific way, I stumbled across a music school in Philadelphia and a college in Boston that really got the principle of teaching what students are drawn to. Bruce Springsteen wrote, "we learned more from a three minute record than we ever learned in school." Although I don't agree with that on all occasions, there is something so special about hearing something that makes you tick and going, "ok let me listen to that again, and now let me figure out HOW I can do that myself." As a teacher, I'm flexible, focused, and also love to have fun with music. It's something that makes us excited and alive; there's no use in pursuing something you love if you don't equally enjoy the process of getting great at
it. So let's find what makes YOU excited about music, and let's figure out out to make you great at it.

I took weekly lessons with Kenny back when he was in Montreal and it was a great learning experience. He was not only open to working on the songs that I wanted but also introduced me to new and exciting stuff that have really broadened my horizons. Kenny is not only super knowledgeable and talented but above all is a great communicator and teacher who makes you feel comfortable learning new techniques and material in a stimulating and exciting way. Highly recommended!

Can not speak highly enough about Jon!

His knowledge and expertise in music recording and production (not to mention song writing) are so thorough, and yet he's able to teach those skills in a very simple and intuitive manner.

The quality of my production has leaped ahead since working with Jon... I can only imagine where I'll be after a few more months of lessons.

Beyond being an astounding musician, Jon is also one of the best people I've met in LA. He's kind, patient, and thoughtful. I highly, highly recommend this amazingly talented instructor!

What makes my guitar lessons unique is that I include a calm environment when teaching. I teach different ways of playing chords as to show the student which sound they would prefer when playing a song or a rhythm the made up from the chords they know.

About Jose
I am a local guitarist in my neighborhood that has been teaching kids at my high school for about a year now. Everyone knows how I play my guitar and how well I'm able to play it.

When I teach people how to play the guitar, I hope that it'll have a long lasting effect on the student so that maybe one day they can pass it on to someone else.
