West New York, NJ

I believe that teaching guitar requires a balance of structure and spontaneity with some humor and fun mixed in. I believe that learning to play music is a social activity which is ultimately about communicating something deep and meaningful. During the 8+ years that I've been teaching, several of my students have either gone on to play at their school talent shows, attend music college or simply learned to enjoy the pleasure of performing for their family and friends.

About Kaz
Hi! As a music educator, I have been active since graduating with my music performance bachelor's degree from Mason Gross Rutgers University in 2006.

I believe music offers invaluable lessons for developing creativity, hard-work ethic and self-awareness.

I consider myself to be an easy-going but effective teacher. Students have told me that I'm patient and great at explaining difficult things.

Prior to the first lesson, I will ask you for some background information about the student's experience with music
(lessons/teachers, listening habits, attention/focus, etc.).

During each lesson, we will go over fundamental techniques, songs and improving overall musicianship.

I just wanted to take a minute and thank you so much for all you have taught Theresa. She has come so far in the last year. She has always been shy and very quiet but I have to tell you that we have noticed her really coming out of her shell. I owe this all to you! She feels confident enough in her playing her guitar that she has played for her class in school and now her very first recital will be this evening. I never really thought she would be comfortable playing for anyone. You are an amazing person with many talents. We are all looking forward to the show tonight!

· Composition · In studio
My lessons with Dave were an integral part of my growth and creative development as a musician and a composer. I had just started taking composition lessons and after assessing my talent and style my first teacher almost right away transferred me over to be taught by Dave. These lessons not only intensely modified my compositions specifically, but it generally taught me how to explore my own thought process to bring forth my true intentions in all of my music. No idea was ever too small or too large. My lessons with Dave helped me to understand my own musicality and brought me success in effectively communicating my music with others. Above all, Dave is amiable, dedicated, informative and caring. When understanding that these qualities are paired with his musicianship and instruction, you’d be hard pressed to find an equal.

Classically trained musician with a fresh view on contemporary sounds and rhythms. I cut my teeth in the grueling, high-stakes orchestra scene of Westchester County but, I know that learning to play guitar and practicing violin concertos for hours on end are two very different things. WIth 4 years of experience in teaching guitar classes to young adults, I know that scales and music theory aren't necessarily best way to get up and running if you're just trying to impress your significant other with a rousing rendition of "Hotel California". With the knowledge of a former principal violist and the flexibility of a jaded millennial, I can get you playing "Wonderwall" by the end of the first lesson.

About Alexei
Prior to working in software, I played in many classical, folk and rock ensembles throughout the country. I took private violin / viola lessons for 8 years, and private guitar lessons for 5 years. I was the principal violist in my high school orchestra, 1st violin player in the Greater Westchester Youth Symphony and a violist in the USC Concert Orchestra in Los Angeles. I've been in the classical realm for long enough to realize that picking up and playing a guitar is not the same as playing violin and practicing it for many hours.

I started a rock band with my friends in high school, for which I played lead guitar and the occasional drum kit. Playing guitar (solo or in a band) is a lot like playing violin but, the learning curve isn't as steep. You only need to know a few guitar fundamentals before you're ready to play your favorite
rock and acoustic songs. My lessons and teaching style reflect this.

After 4 years of providing guitar instruction in both the group and personal setting, I think I've figured out a way to get my students up and playing while providing the minimum amount of theory and technique instruction necessary to do so. I'll always ask you what your favorite genre of music is and then craft lessons and a curriculum around that. You'll always end each lesson with a tangible skill or song that you can put into practice right away. If we spend the first half of a lesson learning some chords, you'll learn a song that uses those chords in the second half. If you opt instead to tell me a song you'd like to learn, I'll teach you the song and make sure to emphasize the technique and theory components that the song uses.

Playing guitar should be fun, and taking lessons shouldn't feel like a chore. I'll teach you anything you want to learn as long as you approach each lesson with a clear mind and willingness to get better.

I never played an instrument before my lessons with Alexei but he was a great teacher and I learned a lot of chords each lesson. By now, I can confidently play in front of my friends and have them sing along, and also be able to improvise and add my own rendition to each piece. This was more than what I set out to do when I started taking lessons, so I'm very happy! Alexei is also very flexible with his times and was able to accommodate my hectic schedule. I wish he hadn't moved to the East Coast!

Alexei has been a great instructor for my son over the last several months! He knows most of the music my son listens to and has been able to help teach him how to play along to many of his favorite songs. My son has improved substantially and is excited every week for his lessons. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an engaging and knowledgable teacher for their child!

Learn Guitar in a different way with focus on the uniqueness of Brazilian music. Peculiar chords, rhythms and harmonies from Bossa-Nova, Frevo, Samba, Chorinho and Baião will add different colors to your musicianship.
I've recently graduated from Berklee College of Music and have been teaching Brazilian music since my late teens.
Not interested in Brazilian music? No problem, I also have a huge background in Reggae, Rock, Jazz, Blues and Funk. Just let me know what you're interested on learning and I'll teach you the song and how to learn it using your ears!
Classes are created according to the students needs and all levels are welcome! Send me a message and we shall get going!

About Pedro
I'm a professional 7 string guitar player, singer, songwriter, arranger and orchestrator, I graduated from Berklee College of Music with a Bachelors in Classical Composition.

My family is impregnated with musicians both professional and amateurs hence, Brazilian music is a big part of my background. I try to mix both worlds with creativity and originality and you can check the result of that at my band Breculê whose album called "Vidas Volantes" I've produced, composed and arranged.

Since my late teens I've recorded and performed with a vast array of musicians which allowed me to develop my guitar skills to a large array of rhythms. I've also recorded with several artists in New York, Boston and different places in Europe.

In Brazil, I've won state and national prizes of composition and arrangements.
Right now I'm producing my own al
bum and just finished a series of arrangements for different artists in São Paulo, Brazil.

If you're interested in going deep into Brazilian music, I have all the tools necessary for that.
Students will be able to learn different rhythms, chords and melodies using written music, chord sheets and specially their ears.
I really like to focus on developing my students ears so they can trust themselves and feel comfortable playing any kind of music.

Classes will be held at the comfort of my living room in a quiet area of Brookline where we will have access to all the material I have on Brazilian, Classical and other styles of music.
