Wow! I adore Keith. He’s so patient & knowledgeable. The lessons are constructed according to the students pace. I’ve learned more in just 2 lessons with him than I did with weeks of online courses. Would definitely recommend!

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I am a part-time musician, currently playing in two bands as a rhythm/lead guitarist and lead singer. Being able to create and express yourself through the musical art form is, in my opinion one of the most therapeutic, empowering, and beautiful experiences in life. My passion for teaching stems from my own experience when starting to play the guitar. Unlike most musicians, I started relatively later in life in my mid 20's. I was eager to learn but struggled to find lessons and teachers that could make music theory and its application to the instrument make sense. After countless hours spent on YouTube, online memberships, and group lessons, I finally found an instructor who has been my mentor for the past 4 years, who was able to make music theory interesting and easily applicable. As a result I was able to build off this invaluable gift of knowledge, find my own style and sound, as well as a unique approach to sharing this wisdom with others.

I take a streamlined approach in ...

Taking a collaborative approach, I steer lessons towards whatever the student's musical goals are while moving at a pace that's comfortable. I create learning resources for my students, (tablature, leadsheets, visual examples of theory etc.) in addition to learning their preferred songs during my free time, so no part of the lesson is wasted. I love answering questions as to why certain things work musically and others don't, and seeing lightbulbs go off in the student's mind once they reach a personal breakthrough.

About Michael

I am a professional composer, songwriter, guitarist, and freelance music teacher. I graduated from the City College of New York, Magna Cum Laude. Lessons are individually tailored to whatever learning style suits the student best, at whatever pace is most comfortable and realistic. I have a set of

Online Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I studied guitar privately with Steve Saventi Studios. Styles studied were Pop, Rock, Jazz, Classical. Played professionally in a band at the age of 15.

I attended Duquesne University School of Music, Pittsburgh, PA as a piano major and then Berklee School of Music, Boston, MA in music theory. I am also a Songwriter and Producer with BMI and have composed and produced hundreds of songs. As you can see, I am quite versatile and would be very eager to speak to you.

About Bennie

Hello. If you want to learn to play and understand piano and music,... I can help you! I teach, play and compose a variety of styles, such as pop, rock, blues, classical, jazz, and new-age music. I can show you how to listen to a recording and to play it without written music. Also, I can teach

I studied with Bennie for several years with the goal of improving my improvisational skills and hand independence. I improved in both areas significantly and am much stronger player. Bennie can push you to a very high level and he stays very engaged between lessons for questions, feedback and additional support. He even attended my performance shows and offered feedback. My only regret is that my day job obligations, available practice time and personal learning speed did not allow a greater lesson frequency.
Bob S.
I couldn't ask for a better teacher. Bennie has the talent and experience to help anyone trying to either learn from scratch or improve their current skill level. Due to the fact that I travel quite a bit with my business I used the holiday season to get a refresher course and Bennie was the right teacher for this. He gave me more in 5 lessons then I could have gotten from anyone else if I had 20 lessons. Unfortunately, I travel a lot for my business and I can't commit to a regular lesson schedule.

My classes are very flexible when it comes to what the student wants. On the first class, I give the student the choice of controlling our lessons materials about what they want to learn. Or the student can choose to let me control our classes, in which I will bring my own materials and ideas in which we should work and will go through the whole academic process of learning music.

"Stan Has been my instructor for eight months. Bottom Line...terrific! He is a master of his craft and a really-really gifted teacher. I tried a number of teachers over the years and got discouraged. There are many alleged "Music Teachers " that cant read music! Stan is a Suma Cum Laude (that's #1 in the class) Honors graduate of Berkley School of Music in Boston! The real deal!!

I walk away from every lesson as excited as the first. I highly recommend Stan to my family and friends!"

"I started taking guitar lesson with Lucian, but our theory work inspired me to buy a keyboard, so now I take both guitar and piano on alternating weeks. As much as I still enjoy the guitar, I LOVE my piano lessons. Apparently my piano has come along well enough that my girlfriend now wants lessons for both her and her child. That is no small compliment coming from her! I'm 43, but I would recommend Lucian to anyone at any age, so long as you're willing to put in the practice. I've had a half dozen guitar instructors, not to mention teachers of various subjects and levels. Lucian is among the best."

To be honest, at first I was hesitant because my son was only 7 years old so I wasn't sure if I should just wait until he's older, but I'm glad we chose to start him early. Now he is much further along than I would have expected! Thanks Wes!"

"My teen-age sons, 15 and 13, have enjoyed a great summer of guitar lessons from Jordan. He has been a pleasure to work with and extremely professional and conscientious as an instructor, easily working around our challenging summer schedule. Jordan is my boys' fourth or fifth guitar instructor, and I'm so happy to report that they are more enthusiastic about guitar and practicing more than they have in the past! My boys, who both have ADHD, have appreciated his patient, calm and friendly approach. They say he "doesn't get frustrated", that he is open minded and really makes things understandable. We would definitely recommend him as an instructor, and hope to continue taking lessons from him in the future!"

I LOVE music and really wanted to play for myself. i have taken lessons from multiple people. Taking lessons with Jimmy took me to a new level. I thought I just wanted to to play fast but Jimmy taught me technique, music theory, composition, live playing concepts. I have learned more with Jimmy in 1 year than 4- 5 years with other teachers. The Light Bulb is on and I am playing better then I could imagine. BTW: people are impressed but I don't care, because I love music!"

How to Simplify Your Live Guitar Rig for Performances

Playing the guitar is such a fantastic experience. It’s so relieving to be on stage or in your designated practice space and just wail on your instrument. However, one of the difficulties of being a guitar player is deciding what gear is needed for live performances. We often get trapped in thinking that we must have the biggest and loudest guitar rig for shows, accompanied by a pedalboard equipped with 30+ pedals. Don’t get me wrong, there is something extremely satisfying about plugging in …
