Kathryn has been teaching my 13 year old both voice and guitar. My daughter is just starting out in both and is learning a lot. Kathryn is friendly and has been so great at working with us when my daughter was sick or when we're needing to reschedule. She's been having lessons for a little over a month and her experience has been great. We're looking forward to continuing lessons.

Play the music you want to play. I often use a combination of styles to get you to advance in your guitar skills whether you are a stone beginner or advanced. I've been teaching for over 20 years and can tailor lessons to the individual using the music you want and my large repertoire ranging from simple American Folk through Advanced modern music. I can get you to accompany,solo and also read music too( if you wish). I have concise approaches to all matters of technique, scale work and arpeggios. You can be confident that you are coming to an experienced teacher/player who cares deeply about music and loves helping the student progress.

Great! Loved it! A high-level teacher, extremely knowledgeable and accomplished. This will certainly challenge me as a beginner.

I was a beginner wanting to learn some Brazilian guitar: samba, bossa nova, etc. Billy was great for that as a very accomplished guitarist of that genre. He is very engaging and enthusiastic. He was patient with me in working on the difficult chords and strumming that this type of music requires. Having literally, "written the book", he had an organized approach. I also enjoyed his humor and occasional stories about guitarist he has know. Acho que ele tem Jeito para ensinar violao.

My goal as a teacher is to give you the facility to express yourself through music. The key parts to developing this facility are:

1. theory -- notice i say theory, not rules. learning music theory is not about learning rigid rules that will stifle your creativity. when you learn theory, you learn to identify patterns and give them names so you can remember and reuse them. the more you know your theory, the more ways you know to express your ideas
2. technique -- the last thing you want is for your technique to hinder your ability to express your idea. Having good technique lets your ideas flow naturally. and really, why would you not want to be the best you can be?

When you take lessons with me, you get out of it what you put in. Your job as student is to be honest with what you expect to achieve and my job as teacher is to give you the tools to achieve it

About David

I have been playing music almost my entire life. I first started on trombone in 4th grade then switched to guitar in 6th. I picked up the electric bass in my later teenage years and learned the upright bass (both jazz and classical) in college. My students get the benefit of my education, as well

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 tried to teach guitar in the same manner in which I teach every instrument. First I teach students the rudiments of the instrument. Also I teach them how to read and a bit of music theory. From that point I like to follow the students lead. They bring in songs that they would like to learn, or possibly how to play lead guitar, or how to finger pick. At every point I try to point out general aspects of music that need to be learned from the material that they choose.

About John

Hello, Thanks so much for taking the time to inquire about studying music with me. Music and studying music has always been a passionate experience for me. I have been so blessed with the teachers and fellow musicians in my life. You should realize that your study of music may start with me,

Edwin is really great and nice as a teacher. He has great skills in understanding what we know and what we want, and he teaches to the potential with much patience. His music ability is excellent and motivates us to learn more.

"I've been taking weekly online guitar lessons with Dennis for a little over a year now and I have nothing but good things to say. Dennis brings decades of playing and teaching experience to the table and it shows in each lesson.

Dennis is particularly great at tailoring the lesson material to the abilities and experience of the student. I had been self learning guitar for about 2 years before signing up for lessons with Dennis. In our first lesson, he got an idea of my skill and interests and built the lessons off of that. I am personally interested in jazz guitar and Dennis holds a wealth of knowledge in that department as well as many other genres and styles.

Ultimately, the greatest thing about Dennis' teaching method is that he helps you pursue your interests and goals and provides you with the tools and information to do so. You won't be spending any time practicing anything you don't feel is relevant to your interests.

Another note I'd like to add is that I have never felt looked down on or judged by Dennis throughout my year of lessons. I know this is common concern among adult beginners like myself (I am currently in my late 20's). I can assure anyone reading this that Dennis is a true professional and conducts his lessons in a stress-free, peer-to-peer manner."

Kevin is a very knowledgeable, dedicated, patient, flexible, and professional instructor. He is very observant about when to push me to practice more and when to just allow me space to absorb what I've just been taught.

Teaching Guitar in Bronx, NY

By Dimitry E.- Bronx Guitar Teacher

For a musician, there is no locale more exciting or inspiring than New York. With world-renowned recital halls, jazz clubs, conservatories, outdoor concerts, and the throng of artists who populate these places, there is music to be found on nearly every street corner. The entire city becomes your classroom and your musical canvas. As a guitar teacher, my job is to be the tour guide – providing a “lay of the land”, offering support and answering questions, while assisting the student in navigating his or her personal musical journey.

I have been fortunate enough to teach students from a diverse range of ages and backgrounds, with various motivations spurring their desire to learn the guitar. However, the most inspiring students I’ve ever

...

worked with were not necessarily the most accomplished or naturally gifted, but the ones for whom music served as an engine for greater effort and clarity in other aspects of their lives.

I used to work as a guitar teacher at an inner-city school here in New York. Though this school was making an effort, it faced many obstacles: inadequate facilities, limited and poorly-conditioned instruments, and a particularly challenging, often troubled, student population. Yet students flocked to the music room with an eagerness I had never before seen. For those students whom I taught, the music clearly had a profound impact. I recall one student in particular, a 10th grader when I met him, who read far below his grade level, which caused him a great deal of embarrassment. He was also an athlete and music student, both areas in which he excelled. I worked with him on mastering music notation, sight-reading songs, and discovering musical patterns. He not only learned to play the guitar, but also bass guitar and trumpet. After many lunch rehearsals and several concerts, this student became a stand-out star in the music program. His hard work paid off in the classroom as well. His reading abilities skyrocketed, and last I heard he was graduating from high school with a Regent’s diploma – an unlikely proposition only a few short years before. This is, of course, not entirely due to my work with him as a music teacher, but I’d like to think it helped. Moments - and students - like this are the ultimate satisfaction for a music teacher.
