Private Guitar Teacher

I have a lot of practical and professional music experience to bring to my lessons, playing with many different bands across many genres. in addition, for my intermediate and advanced students, I accompany them on bass and drums to help them learn to play with other parts of a rhythm section when their goal is to play with other musicians. I'd also say that I take care to craft my teaching to what my students actually want to be able to accomplish, and find ways to teach them not only technique, but theory that is specifically helpful to what they want to be able to do.

About Marshall

I have ten years of teaching and performing/touring experience ranging across a number of different genres, and I was trained at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. I currently play for multiple groups in Philadelphia including one of my own called The Lion and the Badger.

Marshall has been working with my son on his acoustic guitar for nearly a year -- both online and in person. He is a terrific teacher -- Marshall is patient, kind, and engaging. He is readily able to assess my son's continuing abilities and tailor the lesson to his specific needs. Marshall is also a great communicator and is always quickly in touch if we need to reschedule or change lesson times.

Private Guitar Teacher

Experienced guitar instructor of over 10 years, offering highly-personalized lessons built around the musical preferences, needs and goals of my students. I teach students of all ages in a warm, welcoming, LGBTQIA+ friendly environment.

For beginner students the focus will be primarily on getting you able to play songs from artists you love quickly and enjoyably, with a focus on developing good rhythm, technique, guitar care and a solid foundation of chords that can be used in innumerable songs. Theory will be given in small, easily-digestible pieces, and always within the context of actual musical examples. If you're interested in learning to sing while playing, I'll also help you find ways to incorporate it early on so that it becomes more natural as you progress.

For students with some experience the direction of our lessons will be largely determined by your personal needs and goals, but subjects we might cover include songwriting, finger-picking, expanding chord vocabulary, ...

"Very patient and supportive

As an 'older' student, John is great in understanding the time contraints of an adult. He is very patient and never makes one feel like a naughty teenager if not enough time was spent on practice. After a few months I am really starting to have fun with the lessons and look forward to branching into different areas.
John is the best, you cant go wrong with him as your teacher."

"I am really enjoying my lessons with Joey with now. The greatest part about my experience is that I am actually practicing, and enjoying the rewards of practicing. He really knows how to inspire his students, so he is a great choice for guitarist's who have hit the "wall". I have improved greatly in my practice sessions because of his philosophies on practice he has shared with me. We work on mostly electric guitar, and since he is classical trained, his thoughts on left hand technique are extremely helpful!"

"I really like Ryan approach. He is friendly and makes you comfortable. I'm 63 years old and I'm just trying to learn to play some Jazz & Blues and after several years of jumping all over the place with web lessons and really learning nothing; I think I've finally found a teacher who can help me learn to play guitar. I look forward to my lessons with Ryan. I hope to continue this music relationship until I can really play. Its my dream and my hobby now that I'm retired and Ryan has already given me the confidence I need to succeed."

"Jason is a professional and exceptional.

With his ability to teach guitar, drums, keyboard, and also songwriting, my hyper 5 year old is never board. I'm not interested right now in pushing one instrument over the other. I just want her to be "exposed" to different instruments, develop an ear for music, see how she can take her lyrics (budding songwriter, with her singing her day all the time), and enhance it with an instrument. Jason can do all that, because he has the knowledge, but he's also very FLEXIBLE and can easily transition from one insturment and teaching method to another, depending on where a young student's mind and interests take them in any given moment.

Learning to play traditionally/classically, slowly, methodically, step-by-step, learning formal music theory, doing drills and so forth is awesome, and Jason can do that. However, if you want to learn to play for fun, and begin jamming sooner than later...he's definately your man."
