Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I teach acoustic guitar to students of all levels and ages. My lessons are customized to the student's needs and goals as well with the support of methods that I consider specially important to the learning of the guitar technique, such as: "Fundamentals of Guitar" by Miles Okazaki, "A Modern Method for Guitar Vol. 1, II, III" by William Leavitt, followed by uncountable songs that will be suggested either by the student or me.

About Rodrigo

Great teacher! I've learned a lot of cool songs and it was nice how Rodrigo pays attention to details that I wasn't aware of.

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

The technique I teach is applicable to classical, acoustic and electric guitar. It is based on finding the most relaxed position for the entire body, and ultimately the hands and fingers. It's the most fun way to play!

Online Acoustic Guitar Teacher

As a player and teacher I specialize in rock, free improvisation, and classical but am also highly proficient in jazz, blues, funk, folk and more. I develop each curriculum based on the student's musical interests. We closely study the technique and theory behind songs and artists of the student's choosing. I encourage interdisciplinary courses of study that touch on many different subjects, including music theory and composition/songwriting, but ultimately the student's goals and interests guide my lessons.

About Dylan

I have a BA in Music from NYU and have been teaching private guitar lessons for 10 years. I am an expert guitarist, composer, arranger and teacher. In my lessons I am able to cover many topics, including rock, metal, jazz, classical, improvisation, transcription, composition, harmonic and rhythmic

Dylan is a very good guitar coach. He is good at recognizing where you need the most work. And instructing you in that area.

Great teacher - patient, flexible, incredibly knowledgeable, and takes you where you want to go with the instrument. I highly recommend!!

Dylan's an awesome instructor! He's patient, friendly, and open to helping you learn whatever style of guitar playing you'd like. And really flexible and understanding with scheduling.

Working with Eli was amazing. He's a great teacher and he moved through the material at just the speed I needed. I improved greatly over the semesters I spent working with him. I highly recommend him as a teacher.
Dominique
I had a great experience with Eli. He was patient, compassionate, detail oriented, and extremely knowledgeable on the subject matter. He gave useful tips, tricks, and shortcuts for synthesizing the information and retention of concepts. Highly recommended for any level of instruction.
Kris Ramakrishna
Eli is an amazing educator. Not only is he very knowledgeable in Music theory, Guitar, Composition, and arranging, but he has a great outlook on life. I owe the success of my audition at Berklee College of Music to him! We worked step by step on the audition process, and he helped me see what the college was looking for. Now I am at Berklee's Graduate program, and helping tutor other students like Eli did for me! If you do what Eli says, I can guarantee that you will achieve or become much closer to achieving your goals!

My lessons are designed to get my students playing songs and building technique as soon as possible. Because, that’s fun!
I’ve been playing professionally for over 35 years and teaching for over 25 years. I’ve been fortunate to play in several high-profile signed bands (Over the Rhine, Monk and Pay the Girl) and toured all over the world and played on lots of recordings. Fun!
As a teacher, I’ve founds many ways to explain and share this wonderful world of music; because not everyone learns the same way.

Mike is an amazing guitar teacher. We started out having face to face lessons but then Covid-19 made that impossible. We started online lessons and the way Mike teaches online is the same way he does face to face. My son has learned so much and is playing better every day. Mike is vigilant when teaching and is able to show and correct hand movement, eye movement and posture when playing the guitar. I highly recommend Mike Georgin for online guitar lessons for anyone who is wanting to learn the guitar!
Malina
Mike has been the perfect teacher for my 11 year old daughter as she is learning to play bass! He has concentrated on proper technique, reading music, hearing the music, and nuances of what to expect when she gets a “gig” one of these days. He does an excellent job of building on basics and sprinkling in the fun songs so she can also play along with a couple songs she hears on the radio to keep her inspired to learn. I have been amazed with Mike’s ability to relate to someone brand new to the instrument while it is obvious that he, himself, has a very in-depth formally trained skillset himself and knowledge base. I would highly recommend Mike to both new and advanced players alike, for this very reason!
Jim
Mike Georgin is an outstanding instructor. He truly has a gift for teaching. I never stopped being amazed at the depth of his knowledge and professional musical capabilities. His music education plus years of on-stage and recording experience come together in each and every lesson. Mike is very patient, understanding, and works to be sure the lesson concepts are mastered without any pressure. If you just want to play some bass, Mike's your guy! If you want to play bass and learn music theory, Mike's your guy! Mike has the knowledge and experience to go as deep as you, the student, wish to go. I promise you will not regret having Mike as your instructor! He is awesome!

He's easily reached by email, and has sent me audio files of himself playing the song we're working on to help me with my practice. I leave my lessons pumped and excited to play. I highly recommend him!!"

"I've really enjoyed working with Tim, as an adult learner, my goal is to learn how to play guitar to just have a few sing a-longs with friends. I've also had an event where I was performing a song, and Tim helped me gear up to learn the song from the ground up. We even had more lessons as the time got closer to perfect the music and get it refined. I really appreciate his support, his teaching style, and patience. I am not a quick learner and while learning guitar is a tough road for me, Tim is very patient even when I'm at whits end, bringing me back so I can keep making progress."
