About Perry

Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma to a music-loving family, I began playing piano and guitar at a very young age. At age twelve, I began playing double bass, which has become my primary instrument. Throughout middle and high school, I received numerous awards for excellence in both jazz and classical music. After high school, I moved to the Oklahoma City area and had the opportunity to play with many of the great musicians who passed through, including Jon Faddis, Wynton Marsalis, Byron Stripling, and Anne Hampton Calloway. Since moving to New York City, I have been fortunate enough to travel throughout the US, Canada, Caribbean, and Europe with such groups as Pete Robbins and Centric, Ryan Blotnick's Secret Mainstream, and The Paislies. Aside from my freelance work with various groups, I also ...

Perry is a great teacher. I had fun and learned a lot. I was only with him a short time because of my schedule. However, when my schedule changes and I can go back to my mandolin I would want to continue with Perry.

Great teacher!

Matthew has been a big help so far in getting me started playing the guitar. We have had 4 lessons so far, and he has taught me several chords, as well as the c major scale. He has been a big help in teaching me to play in time, as well as finger positioning on the guitar.

He is a great teacher. He teaches very good and makes learning easy and fun. I've been playing guitar and trying to teach myself for 15 years but kinda hit the limit but he helped me finally start improving. He corrects my bad habit.
Juan C. New York, NY

Years of experience as a live musician and teacher. I focus on bringing out your personal voice and to acquire the necessary technique to achieve your musical goals.

About Juan

New York city based guitarist and composer Juan C. immigrated to Miami, Florida at age 21. His work speaks a unique language that blends elements from his early musical experiences in Colombia, as a member of various folk, rock (metal ) ensembles, and his studies in East Asian music fueled by travels and interaction with musicians and artists in China and Japan. Juan’s music has been performed throughout South America, the United States and Asia. Although Juan cannot return to his native Colombia, his string duet, “Famous Librarians” (commissioned by Olivia de Prato and Victor Lowrie, was premiered at the Medellín Conservatory of Music.) His piece for electric bass and keyboard, “Glue Pain Ghost,” a collaboration with video artist, Jane Hsu, was invited to a world premiere at ...

I have spent one year locking myself up in my room, every day for a few hours at a time, stumbling my way to learning the guitar. On my own, I have made it far enough to be familiar with a repertoire of chords, able to learn songs and even develop the mindset for habit forming. But after one year I felt my own limits and decided to discard my ego and find a teacher.

From his profile here I could tell that Juan was not only a skilled musician, but a keen and pensive instructor. After a single session Juan was able to properly asses my abilities and my shortcomings and tailor-designed an approach that matches my personal and musical nature. He uses my strong affinity for technique and uses that to discourage my hesitancy toward theory. He has a comfortable and approachable presence where mistakes and flaws are encouraged as learning footstools. With humble discipline he pushes me to -want- to be better.

With Juan I am absolutely confident in not merely becoming an apt guitarist, but a genuine musician.

I teach basic acoustic guitar skills. My background is Classical, but I also teach folk and pop songs. My lessons include theory, strumming, finger picking, chords and how to form them. Singing along is always welcome!

About Dvora

Providing professional instruction for children and adults seeking to learn to play piano/keyboard/guitar and read music, or to train their voice to speak or sing with tonal clarity and ease. PIANO/KEYBOARD/GUITAR - The goal is to become, as quickly as possible, independently capable of playing any type of music and to use the instrument as a means of self-expression. Depending entirely on the person's interest, the skills I foster include sight-reading, improvisation, composition, music theory and an increased awareness of the full spectrum of sound. VOICE COACH -- The body is a living instrument. It personifies everything needed to emit sound -- a soundboard, an equalizer, bellows, pipes and power source. But there are critical skills one must learn to realize the full range and ...

Taking lessons with Dvora has been a wonderful, esteem-building experience for my children that I highly recommend. Dvora is more than a music teacher. With her gentle and spirited guidance, Dvora teaches how to unlock the music of the soul and allow it to flow through. My son is becoming his own musical genius as Dvora expertly guides him to resonate with the sounds within his heart. At the same time, he is learning to play piano, read notes, and enjoy himself. Every time I walk in to pick him up, he is "performing" in front of an imaginary audience and having a ball. He is free, happy, and totally himself. Amazingly, Dvora is able to tap into every child's unique song and enable them to dance to it. She is a brilliant Light, intuitive, healing, and joyful. Now my other kids are begging to take guitar with her. They think it is just because they want to play guitar. But it is their inner wisdom that is drawing them to her to benefit from her
Presence. And yes, they will also learn to play guitar and feel great about their abilities.

Mr. Tony Lodi, NJ

I’m a firm believer in thoroughly covering all subject matter, including music theory and staff and chord chart reading. Learned in acoustic, electric and bass guitar and piano instruction, I incorporate computer-aided teaching techniques to capture students’ attention and maintain a logbook of student progress, supplementing reports with digital images of each student’s technique. I’ve developed a chord specific teaching methodology and created my own teaching curriculum. I Offer points of motivation and obtainable objectives to encourage each student’s growth and developed a teaching system for challenging, attention deficit and neurologically challenged students. I pride myself on providing clear instruction and developing well thought out lesson and practice plans

About Tony

Passionate about sharing my love of the guitar with students of all ages, I've been teaching for more than 30 years. A trained Flamenco guitarist, I found, at the tender age of 7, my passion when I heard the world-renowned Flamenco guitarist Sabicas. Studying Flamenco since then, I began, during my teens, performing professionally and have had the honor of performing with such nationally known musicians as Billy Bang (legendary fiddle player), Willy Calhoun (Living Colour), Vassar Clements Band, Tom Chapin, Stanley Jordan, Buddy Miles, and Michael Powers. In high school, I enrolled in an Honors Musicianship class at the RiverDell, NJ, Senior High where I learned to read scores, conduct and identify multiple instruments, sight read, orchestrate scores and compose music. Following my ...

Tony has worked as guitar accompanist for the past year and a half with our 700+ religious formation students from K-8 as well as our whole church assembly. He has played classical to contemporary Christian music with us and is fantastic. As a teacher myself, I see him as an ideal person to learn from. Tony is patient, kind, knowledgeable and tuned into kids as well as adults. You couldn't want for more in a teacher.

I strongly endorse Tony as a master pop and classical guitar teacher (as well as a dynamic, highly creative guitarist and pop/rock/folk tenor singer). I received a Master’s Degree from the Juilliard School in 1986 in voice, and he and I have worked on a weekly basis at churches and concerts since 2007. His mastery of incredibly rapid finger techniques in all major and minor scales, widely varied strum technique in so many different styles, understanding of audio production and vocal-instrumental microphone usage, as well as soulful improvised counter melodies is unmatched in my experiences. He also taught my son guitar, as well as many of my parishioners at my church, and they went on to playing frequently during church services and many other venues. His manner with children and teens is very gentle, humorous and witty, and is instantly beloved by all who meet him. Throughout my career I have rarely heard an artist who has more artistic and musical impact in concert or religious events than Mr. Tony. And the line of people wishing to meet him after concerts is so long that he does not leave events for more than 90 minutes or more. You cannot do better anywhere than having Mr. Tony as a teacher, colleague or friend.

I highly recommend Tony. He has taught both of my sons, Emmet and Connor, how to play the guitar with an emphasis on jazz and rock and learning the fundamentals needed for improvisational play. My eldest son, Emmet, began his guitar lessons in 7th or 8th grade and continued all the way through High School. Emmet commented to me that Tony was a really good teacher for his learning style and made it easy and fun. Emmet continued playing in college and used the fundamentals he learned from Tony to teach himself how to play the banjo. As a River Raft guide he was selected to be the guide on the "folk music" trip so that he could play along with the professional folk guitarist and vocalist. My second son, Connor, had played the saxophone and was in the jazz band in Middle School, and then decided he wanted to learn guitar in High School. He took lessons with Tony all through High School (9th through 12th) and learned all the chords and how to improvise. He enjoyed his lessons with Tony and progressed rather quickly. Tony knows how to teach according to each individual's needs which is very important. He customizes his lessons for students based on their interests and ability levels. He makes the lessons fun and interesting. I highly recommend Tony.
Devin A. New York, NY

Extensive experience teaching rock, jazz and acoustic guitar. I base my teaching around the interests of the student, and also make sure to cover important fundamentals of music such as scales, chords and music theory.

I enjoy helping students develop their unique talents and helping them to find their own musical voice on the guitar or bass.

I highly recommend , if you are interested in developing your guitar skills and/ or expanding your knowledge of music theory , to schedule an appointment with Devin for a lesson . I came from my native Brazil to study jazz at an american college and he patiently introduced me to jazz music . I not only was able to succeed in my jazz ensemble classes with straight A's , but I also got prepared to audition successfully to universities and will be completing my bachelors degree in music soon. And I thank Devin for that .

I had the privilege of taking guitar, ensemble, arrangement/composition, and theory lessons with Devin for 3 years. Not only is he very knowledgeable in his field, but he also has a knack for communicating his lessons in an easy-to-understand manner. Devin truly listens and is genuinely patient. He tailors his lessons to help you achieve your personal goals while simultaneously giving you a well-rounded, solid foundation in music standards. Plus, he's just a really nice guy! Definitely recommended!
