Students can expect to discover or re-discover their love for music and and their own natural musical inclinations. Many students report an increased sense of joy and possibility in their own lives. Curriculum depends on level of student, but is focused on being able to play favorite songs, develop comfort and ease in playing style, and accessing creativity and originality in approach. After 3 to 6 months working with me, most students can feel comfortable calling themselves a musician!

I had a one off single lesson with Matthew, I was only in New York for a couple days and was lucky enough to get a sing writing session with him. He gave some great insight and valid techniques towards song writing. He was easy going and very friendly. Would certainly recommend.
Sami
Matt is an awesome instructor. Unlike a traditional guitar teacher, Matt understands what his students want to play, making lessons much more interesting and making practicing much easier. I've had a few lessons with Matt and have learned more in those lessons that I could have ever learned by myself. Highly recommend.
Diana
Just had my first piano lesson with Matthew today. He is a truly great artist and instructor who will teach you not just about the playing technique but about the music theory/history behind it. Would definitely recommend!

I've been teaching guitar for the past thirteen years, and I've worked with all kinds of students. From children, to teenagers, to adults, everyone who I've had the pleasure to sit down with has told me what they want to get out of the guitar, and I've made it my responsibility to help them reach their goal. Within the first few lessons, every student develops a new perspective, and approaches the guitar with the clarity and confidence to grow as a musician at a pace comfortable for them.

About Dave

Hi, my name is Dave, and I've been teaching guitar & bass for almost 15 years. Working as a professional musician, I've made the time to teach students of all ages. Teaching has been my passion alongside performing since I first picked up an instrument, and I look forward to meeting and working wit

I feel lucky we found Dave! My son who is 11 yo was having a hard time with his other piano teacher. Dave is patient, friendly and encouraging. What I really love is that Dave notices where my son is having a problem and comes up with exercises to work on that issue!
Julian
Dave is a great teacher and has helped me for 2 years whenever I have a problem he takes time out of the lesson to help me on a specific instruction. He pushes me to do better but we still go at a place we’re I am comfortable.

wonderful books for ages 5 through Adult. Also a great way to sing and read music while playing an instrument. My teaching method includes notation if you haven’t studied a prior instrument . Books can also take in your specific interests, rock, jazz, country, after basic concepts . I first learned guitar so I could accompany myself singing and played in the church contemporary group. I love teaching and meeting people, and I promise you will enjoy your lessons.

"Glorius

I had been playing Guitar with zero musical training and zero knowledge of theory for about a year and a half prior to being taught by Francesca. I've only been to lessons once a week for a few months and my dexterity as Well as my knowledge of theory has been vastly improved. The laid back environment coupled with Francesca's great communication skills make learning comfortable and easy. The experience is always focused on bettering your playing and you as a musician. There is never fear of embarrasment from messing up or being incorrect because of the friendly encouraging atmosphere. .From an aspiring beginner to an experienced musician looking for guidance, I believe Francesca's lessons could be helpful to anyone looking to improve on or become a musician."
