Dennis
after Just strumming around for many years, I finally decided to learn how to play. It’s been a fun journey with Eric and he has me playing things I couldn’t imagine just six months ago. A bit of theory and a lot of repertoire my skills have improved quickly.... one of these days he will convince me to just play and not overthink!

Private Guitar Teacher

I have taught guitar since 2012 and have been playing since 2000. I am happy to take students at the beginner and intermediate levels. I believe strongly in integrating music theory and ultimately moving students toward musical self-suffiency, rather than focusing exclusively on learning particular pieces.

About Ben

Hi, there! My name is Ben and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2012 and have taught students of all ages from 3 to adult. I have experience not just with teaching but also with writing, recording, and performing music in successful bands and on multiple instruments

Ben has been instructing my 2 kids (now aged 11 and 9) in-home for at least 5 years. We started off with piano for the first few years but then switched to a combination of piano and acoustic guitar (half a session dedicated to each instrument).

He is patient, kind, and highly knowledgeable. I clearly see the upward trajectory in my kids' musical capabilities. One of my kids can be difficult to deal with, especially when he is tired, but Ben would mold his approach to the lesson on the spot to keep my kid engaged (e.g., instead of continuing the lesson on the actual piano, he'd switch to a fun music-oriented game).
Lauren
I hadn't played a musical instrument since elementary school when I started Ukulele lessons with Ben. Ben started from the beginning, answered all my questions along the way, and built upon that information in each lesson. It wasn't in a didactic way, but in a way that was really customized to fit my Ukulele lesson goals. Ben's teaching style is very flexible also. I had some Ukulele lesson books I had been gifted and we worked from those. I didn't feel that I had to buy a bunch of additional equipment, books, etc.

I recommend Ben as a music teacher. He is understanding, encouraging, and inspirational. I am looking forward to continuing lessons with Ben and JC Instrumental.
Pam
Ben has been working with our daughter since January 2019, when she turned 6 1/2. He arrives at our home on time each week and he works with her at an age appropriate level. We appreciate that he recognizes the effort she puts into the weeks when she practices often and he gently makes her aware when she hasn't practiced enough. He always speaks with her in a kind way and with us in a collaborative manner. We all want her to enjoy her piano experience, and we are thankful to have found Ben just a few blocks away from our home.

Private Guitar Teacher

I've been playing guitar for over 20 years and can teach many styles and techniques including classic rock, folk, r&b and metal guitar. Something to think about when you start taking guitar lessons is your intention. Do you want to rock in a punk band or just learn some of your favorite songs? Do you plan to play electric, acoustic or classical guitar? These are a few things to consider. I'm happy to help you by answering questions, advising you on where to buy a guitar, how much to spend and helping you find sheet music. I can't wait to help you learn to rock out on guitar!

Terence
Really enjoyed my first lesson. I got a lot of applicable tips for my future processing. Jessica is very talented. Hoping my next set of lessons so be just as promising!
Ron
Jessica is a virtuoso on the ukulele. She has the patience of a saint with less than adept students. Yet she is insistent, in a gentle way, about instilling correct form in her students' approach to the uke. In addition, she is a walking encyclopedia of songs that span the range from traditional to standards to current day favorites, and from country to r&B to rock and roll.
James
I am so fortunate to have found Jessica to teach the Ukulele. She is sweet, kind and truly a pleasure. very unassuming yet so focused on my particular needs when I lose my way. I strongly recommend her. I am so fortunate. Wait, did I say that already? Thank you Jessica.

I was apprehensive about guitar lessons in general, but Nathan has changed my mind as a tutor. I am well pleased with how keen he is to tailoring lessons to one's goals. He is clear and precise in his teaching, and is also fun. I highly recommend him to whoever is considering it. I have learned so much in a couple lessons and always leave looking forward excitedly to the next one. Good man.

Online Guitar Teacher

I have been teaching guitar for about 15 years now and have taught students between the ages of 6-60 from very beginners to advanced players who want to deepen their understanding of the instrument.

I have an extensive experience playing/teaching a wide array of musical genres and have played numerous stages in the U.S and abroad.

I have a BFA with honors in jazz performance from the Rubin Academy for Music and Dance and have also attended the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music (NYC)

I always try to tailor the lesson to the students needs and musical preferences while keeping core skills that we will try to always incorporate (reading music/ theory for more advanced students, ear training etc.) I'm very passionate about teaching and believe it's imperative as a musician to be able to share the knowledge and experience I've acquired along my musical path.

About Nadav

Hi there, My name is Nadav and I have been a professional guitar player and teacher for most of my life now. I have a very extensive experience playing festivals and venues in the U.S and abroad and have been teaching beginner and advanced guitar/bass and musical ensemble classes for 15 years.

Bill T.
Speaking from the standpoint of a colleague of Nadav’s for many years and professional musician/educator myself, Nadav is the real deal. He is my top recommendation, without question, for anyone looking to study the guitar and/or music in general.

Nadav is an extremely gifted and skilled musician, composer, and bandleader with very deep understanding of playing the guitar. He has the experience and versatility to so in a multitude of different styles ranging from R&B, Pop, Funk, Jazz and Ethiopian groove music (check out his incredible band: Abbess Orchestra). He is also extremely kind, has a gentle yet “matter-of-fact” demeanor and is the consummate professional.

For anyone who has interest in learning the guitar and needs an instructor, no matter their experience level, it’s impossible to go wrong with Nadav. Just check him out and sign up!
Eran
I was a self taught guitar player since a very early age, so when I met Nadav for the first time I already knew many songs and chords. But my technique was a mess.
Nadav helped me establish a healthy and meticulous practice routine that fixed my technique very quickly.
I would recommend him as a teacher for every level.
Randy
Great teacher with good vibes! Nadav showed me great ways to practice harmony and soloing on the guitar. Highly recommended.

"Jordan is an excellent teacher, he can play just about anything on the guitar and he teaches you how to teach yourself. Ive been with Jordan for 3 years and I've gone from complete beginner to being in a band myself. I used to feel so overwhelmed and didn't know which direction to go,now i know how to learn a song on my own and how to build up my technique,i can improve on my own. Jordan is a great teacher and he pushed me and i'm super lucky to have found him. p.s.... Jordan is super beast of a guitar player too, i have my own band now but i still haven't seen anyone that's better than him"
