Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I'm a specialist in Brazilian Guitar and have played and used American Folk Styles to teach finger picking for many years. This includes Travis Picking, Blues and arrangement of all sorts of melodies for guitar. One of the first world musics I played was Irish music and I have a nice repertoire of these melodies to help the student learn how to play a linear melody. Reading is not necessary but I'm expert at getting people to read by using simple familiar music.

Billy is a patient instructor who is perfect for a beginner with some musical knowledge. I feel like we accomplished quite a bit in one lesson and I am looking forward to advancing under his guidance! #totallyworthit

I have been taking lessons with Billy since January 2015. I am a total beginner and I really think I have made the best choice ever to pick him as my teacher. Billy is an experienced guitar teacher and a professional player that knows great techniques for beginners. He has been teaching me basics of guitar in a smart way, and at each lesson I feel I learn something new and at the same time I can clearly see how much progress I have made since our first lesson. He has also been teaching me how to read music and tabs which proofed to be extremely useful every time I want to learn a new song by myself. Highly recommended!

I learnt music theory and improvisation with Charles for 4 months in New York.

Charles is highly approachable and extremely knowledgeable. He walks the perfect line between making his students feel comfortable whilst also pushing them to become better in every single session.

I got a solid grasp of the basics of music theory and was able to fully improvise in different scales at the end of the course. The growth I had was tremendous - all thanks to Charles' guidance.

Charles will take the time to fully understand the needs, goals and struggles of his students. He will be there for them inside and outside of class time because he genuinely cares about music and his students becoming better.
Nicolas Parada
Super talented, yet super down to earth. Great teacher and ridiculously knowledgeable, yet super funny. I had been a self taught bass player for years before taking Charles' course at NYU and was hoping to try out a new instrument and learn it the "right way" through lessons, expecting things to be very academic. But Charles works in a way that is surprisingly individual-based, and so that while you do learn a lot, you do so at your own pace and having fun along the way. By blending your own formal course goals with his own knowledge and incredible feel for the instrument alongside the songs you want to learn (often times you learn them together- he is great at picking up new, unfamiliar tunes by ear) it creates an experience that keeps you picking up the guitar long after you leave the classroom. Where I am now with guitar and where I started at first are miles and miles apart thanks to him, and he's just a super chill guy who likes playing guitar. Who also happens to be ridiculously qualified. 10/10 would recommend.
Charles Pelletier-Gagne
After having played sax and flute for 7 years, I decided to start to learn the guitar during the quarantine. After a month of learning on my own and through apps, one of my good musician friends pushed me to seek out lessons. I had a few teachers in mind, but he told me that Charles would definitely be the best choice for me.
I have now been taking weekly lessons with him for the past three months, and my progress has skyrocketed. My guitar playing was quickly brought to the next level, and he also gave me a solid foundation in music theory that has helped me a lot on the sax and flute as well.
Charles is excellent at adapting to his student's needs and limitations. When I was traveling and had no access to a guitar, we had a lesson on facetime audio using my flute in the middle of a park, and that was one of the best I have ever had, even without video or the guitar.
Charles is a great teacher and also a great musical mentor. He will not let you stagnate, he will push you to reach your goals and provide you all the tools to do so. The homework he gives after each lesson also helps a lot to consistently reach the goals that have been set.
For any level, beginner, intermediate, or expert, I strongly recommend him to be your next guitar instructor.

Mr. Carrion helped me immensely during my time with him, and I learned so much about how to be a great bass player. He taught me many things that I was not previously aware of and helped me with my college auditions. Overall, I had a really good time with him and he was a great help.

I cannot say enough good things about paul. First, despite having so many years of playing, he doesn't judge or look down on you for not having the same level of knowledge he has. Instead - he is able to communicate concepts, both basic and advanced, to you in a way that you can understand. Second, he caters to you in order to achieve the goals you want to achieve, not the ones he thinks you should have. Lastly, he's clearly passionate about playing, and music in general. he's a great guy to chat about, seems really down to earth, and goes above and beyond in order to make the most of the lesson.

I cannot say enough good things about paul. Highly recommend you take his lessons!

As a young female, I was apprehensive about choosing a male teacher that teaches in his home. However, Paul has been professional and I have not had any concerns since meeting him and working with him. He is a well-planned, experienced teacher who artfully progresses students from week to week in a manner that is constructive and fun. In only 5 weeks I have learned more about playing guitar and guitar theory than I would have thought. He has been attentive to my goals and it is precisely the experience that I pay for.
