Mark is an excellent teacher, just a few classes and my singing has gotten better so quickly. He really knows how to tailor the classes to your specific needs and describes things thoroughly in a very easy-to-understand but challenging fashion. Makes learning fun, as it should be!

Private Guitar Teacher

I have played blues, hard rock, fingerpicking, folk, and jazz music on the guitar since 2006. I have played onstage in rock bands and jazz combos and received years of private instruction. I am a chronic improviser, a composer, a creative musician, and a music theory geek.

My enthusiasm for the guitar is related to its irreplaceable role in genres that are uniquely and beautifully American like blues, bluegrass, and rock 'n' roll.

I can teach you how to play the basics, how to solo, how to write a song, how to play jazz chords, how to play rock riffs, how to groove, how to fingerpick, or whatever you want to learn.

Check out my guitar lesson demo video on my profile to hear me play!

Alex has inspired my son to love playing music for the rest of his life. I can't think of a more wonderful gift. His technique in teaching allowed my son to enjoy learning guitar by playing songs he wanted to play. This made him want to practice just for the fun of it! Alex taught my son from the time he was 9 years old until he was 15. The easy going, positive attitude Alex exudes encouraged my son along his journey and made a strong bond and connection between the two of them. I wholeheartedly encourage anyone who would like to learn to play guitar to sign up for lessons with Alex!
Christopher
Alex is a superb teacher and is very patient and well schooled. I look forward to my lessons every Friday.
Krystal
Alex is incredibly knowledgeable and great with students off every age group! I took lessons from him for five years and my only regrets were not having more time to practice so I could get more out of my lesson times.
During lessons we worked on sight reading, ear training, memorizing chords and scales, different picking and strumming patterns, theory lessons, and anything else that I discovered and wanted to try.

Why not make use of this time stuck inside and learn to play that old six string that's been sitting there for weeks, months, or even years collecting dust?

With me, you will learn to play songs that YOU want to learn through an interactive platform where I will provide you the coaching and encouragement needed to get past the 1st (and most difficult) set of hurdles to overcome while learning guitar.

The most important part is HAVING FUN, so whether you want to learn basic chords, introduction to music theory, how to solo along with friends, or write your own music, I will cater the lessons to you... thus fueling your inner fire and eagerness to get better!

Over 20 years, I have learned through a combination of mentorship by world famous musicians and self teaching. I have toured the US as a professional "One Man Funk Band" and had my songs played on both film and radio. I have taught over 50 students and now want to spread the love and excitement of music to you and your loved ...

About Rob

Hey Friends! Thanks for joining me on this great and long lasting guitar journey! Whether you want to learn how to play chords to play around a campfire, soloing techniques to be able to hop in on a jam session with another player, or how to write your own songs, I can help you get there. I have

I have been taking lessons with Rob Online now for about 3 months. In that time, I have learned how to play about 5 of my favorite songs. I tried first through YouTube, but it was just so difficult to keep motivated and I was worried I was learning incorrectly. I found Rob through Craigslist and he not only corrected some of the mistakes I was making in my technique, but made it exciting and fun. Wish I would have found him sooner. Highly recommend!!!!

If your a total beginner... I'm gonna suggest you check out my bass page. Bass is fun. I promise, I wouldn't play it if it wasn't.

Really, Like right now.

No?

Well if your still here, alright. Let's get crackin' on the 6 string. If you read my bio, you see I talk about the "waves" of music. We gotta learn how to surf the waves and stick with a band. The flashy solos will come in time, but just like real surfing, you gotta learn to ride the waves created by the bass and drums before you can start doing tricks on it. Once you have a grasp on meter (the pulse of the waves) we can start talking about some music theory and how the flashy solos can be built upon those waves.

Gonna mention the bass page again. They create the waves... its a lot easier to play in the waves when you know how to make them.

If you are so dedicated to rockin the 6-string that your reading this, then read no further. Message me and tell me what it is you want to play, and we will jump right in.

About Matt

Aside from being proficient at a craft, a good teacher needs the skill of communication. Being the best physicist in the world doesn't make you the best physics teacher. Knowing how to do something and knowing how to make other people understand it are two very different skills. Lets be honest,

I teach good playing technique and broadly applicable musical knowledge by working on music you actually want to play. 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. Intermediate level and above.

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 electro

"My 11 year old daughter just had her first lesson with Daniel and it went so, so well! Daniel is kind and patient, and as a result, she relaxed and really had a good time. There was improvement right away, and her confidence starting rising. He gave her a couple of exercises to work on throughout the week. She is really looking forward to the next lesson. I am extremely impressed, and so happy we found Daniel."

"I took lessons with Steven for almost a year and I must say working with him has truly been a blast. I emailed Steven originally looking for help with my theory skills as well as both my acoustic and electric guitar playing and I have without a doubt gotten a hundred times better at all of the above. I have never been able to play a guitar solo before working with him and thought it would be months until I could even begin to think about that but right away he showed me the ropes and got me going. I was totally discouraged about my skill level because I’ve been wanting to major in music in college but started playing late in the game. However, Steven was nothing but encouraging through not only teaching me crucial musical skills but also sharing invaluable stories from when he was in music school leaving me nothing but inspired. Its often intimidating to meet a private instructor for the first time (I’ve met plenty of bad ones) but Steven is one of the nicest guys in the world and I can’t wait to continue lessons with him again once I have the time. Be sure to check out the Rivera Sunnarborg Duo live they are absolutely breathtaking! Have fun taking lessons and get ready for some nerdy music theory jokes!"
