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.

I enjoyed learning guitar for the first time with Mary. She is funny and very encouraging. I highly recommend her as a teacher specially for those who think they cannot do it. She is a great teacher overall.

Guitar is my first and primary instrument. I love it so much because it is one of the most diverse instruments in the world. With that being said I try to be not only a diverse player but musician in general. This past year I performed in GFA's (Guitar Foundation of America) competition with my guitar quartet and as a soloist.

Chris is the most understanding, invested, and patient guitar teacher I have ever had. I have been playing for 11 years, and about 6 years into that I began learning classical guitar from Chris. He was able to teach me anything from beginner level until I was ready for advanced techniques. Very responsible and the best experience I’ve had with any guitar teacher.
Ragav
Chris is a CHEAT - he took our money and just vanished - made up many excuses via canceling classes and ultimately stopped responding to texts. He broke both my kid's confidence and till now they are very sad!

Luis is a humble, patient and compassionate instructor. He displays a genuine love for teaching and is clearly committed to his students success. He is your cheerleader-of-sorts. Meaning, when you feel flustered with yourself he's the one who keeps a positive attitude and puts your mind back into that "I can do this" thinking pattern. I'm confident that anyone who enlists the help of this outstanding instructor will surely be happy with his work.
Claudia
My 8 year old daughter has been studying piano for the past 2 months, he's flexible with timing and very patient with my child, she has learned more than I expected. I put her in his class because I heard that piano helps progress children's mind in mathimatics and other subjects and she has actually done better in her classes ever since she started.
Cristina
I took classical guitar first then piano because I got my nails done. Luis is a very patient teacher and advances his lessons according to your pace. He not only encourages you to continue the classes, but pushes you to practice at home atleast 30 minutes to work out the fingering in guitar and the hand placements for piano. I've been with him for 4 months and planning to continue, he has always kept his home clean and his work space organized. Luis offers in Spanish and English and has been very patient with my frustration when I don't get things right.

If you want rhythm, tastefulness, and feel, let me help you learn! I grew up playing in Jamaican churches immersed in reggae, gospel, and folk styles, graduated from Penn State with a degree in music, have played in multiple jazz, rock, funk, r&b, and christian bands, and I'm currently the main guitarist for Ripe, an artistic conglomerate based in Philadelphia. I can teach students of any age to play by ear and bring the music inside them out. I'm excited to start working with you!

I played music professionally for many years, both solo and in a variety of bands. I did not enjoy performing. I am a songwriter and my studio is where I feel most comfortable. I teach finger-style acoustic guitar as my default but enjoy other styles as well. Regardless of style, it will always be combined with a strong understanding of music theory and guitar basics. It doesn't matter If you are interested in more advanced topics (i.e. songwriting, recording, etc.) or are a complete beginner. I am happy to work with all levels. Let's get started. You can do this!

I've been writing and recording music my whole life. Aside from motorcycle riding, it's my true love.

"A great experience.

As an adult, beginner student I have nothing but good things to say about Ian. He has a very good demeanor during class and takes the time to find out what styles you are interested in.

He has the patience and communication skills that are found in superior instructors (I have been to a couple others and have stuck with Ian). His passion for music is infectious.

He challenges me to become better with each week and is good at instilling a sense of competition. I highly recommend him as an instructor."

He is an amazing guy. He gets to know you and makes sure your comfortable and not awkward. He makes sure your doing well and even if you dont get it on the first try, you will always get it at the end! I suggest him to all ages."

"Having Michael teach my son (who is 10) has been one of the best decisions I've made. He is laid back enough to put him at ease and make learning fun, yet he is very professional and mature with his organization, structure, communication, etc. At the end of the day, the success I've seen my son have with him in learning the guitar speaks volumes. I can't say enough good things about him. Thank you, Michael!"

"You gotta go to this guy.

I started taking lessons with Jason when I was only 9 years old. At age 13, I played my first show at a club in Baltimore. At 15, I played my first show at a club with my own band. At 18, I played at the Lollapalooza music festival in Chicago. None of these things would've been possible without Jason's guidance and teaching skill. He knew quickly what I wanted to do with guitar and put me on the road to doing it.

His experience is valuable in every aspect of playing guitar, really. Just a few months ago, I had an overuse injury in my arm from playing guitar. He just happened to have previously had the same injury himself, and his advice helped me overcome it in time for my tour in Chicago (disclaimer: he's not a doctor).

Do you need help with guitar maintenance? He can show you that. Wanna learn about songwriting? He does that, too. He does anything. Just let him know; he'll show you.

I plan on going to Jason for many more years."
