I have had a very positive experience with Adam as my guitar instructor. He is very knowledgeable, patient, and encouraging. I could see myself making progress and look forward to my next lesson!
Mark
I've been taking lessons from Adam for about 3 years now - He is an amazing teacher! I took lessons before when I was younger but I quickly lost interest. I decided to get back into it later in life (I'm 35 now), but I still struggled to find the right teacher. One was too serious and the other was too relaxed and I felt like I wasn't actually making any progress. With Adam I got the best of both worlds! I was getting better at the guitar, and at the same time I was enjoying myself throughout the whole process. I'm still taking lessons with Adam and I would recommend that you do the same!
Paul
I took jazz guitar for two years from Adam. He’s a great teacher and excellent musician. As a former “cowboy chords” guitarist, I jumped from 5 to about 15 chords in a few weeks. Adam is patient and lots of fun. I still catch some of his gigs when I’m back in NYC.

Sylivan is a great teacher with great personality. He was there to help me not only when I struggled with music and guitar but also when I felt down. I asked him why he cared so much and he told me a healthy mind is most important which helps in music learning =) Sylivan is also patient; even sometimes I can't stand myself but he was there to help me to learn lol He has passion in teaching and you can see it once he's in action.

I have been a student of Eric’s for the past 2 1/2 years. He is a wonderful teacher and has taught me oodles of things. I have much improved and am now starting to create my own music. He is very patient and knowledgeable and is an awesome teacher! I highly recommend taking lessons from him!!!
Jaymie
I have been taking vocal lessons with Eric for about a year-and-a-half. He's taught me so much about singing in that time! I started out as complete novice, had never sang seriously in front of anyone before. I now feel confident in my singing, thanks to Eric. I was worried about switching to online lessons during the pandemic, but they've been just as good as my in-person lessons. Take lessons with Eric!

I”m patient, engaging, and have a deep love of learning and communicating my passion for music. Even though I’ve performed professionally as a soloist with orchestras, I know what it’s like to be a beginner- I was there just ten years ago!

If you take lessons with me, prepare to see your progress skyrocket. I work together with my students to create objectives that will enthuse them and make them want to practice, and then break those down into micro-goals, so that they are going to see tangible progress every day that they pick up the guitar.

I look forward to hearing from you!

My son (8) and daughter (6) have been taking piano lessons with Josh and they've both been having a lot of fun AND learning a lot. Josh keeps it light, but makes sure that his students are learning the theory needed to really progress. I would HIGHLY recommend Josh!!!
Holly D.
Josh has been the most kind and patient of any instructors I have ever had! He is knowledge-able, is always finding new ways to connect the right practice and knowledge with his students, and completely dedicated in making sure the student has fun! He is good with anyone of any age and music range and will always take the time to review. I sadly could not continue with him due to my schedule and inability to make the time to practice and attend lessons, but I would recommend him to any aspiring musician looking to enhance his/her musical abilities. You cannot get any better than Josh!
Jill L.
Josh is a Great teacher! More patience with my son than I have at times! He was very good at explaining the basic concepts behind the lessons. Josh is always on time and ready to get started. I would highly recommend Josh to anyone that is interested in getting their kids started in music.

"Lucian has a life time of experience as a practing musician, and also has been teaching for many years. I've had other guitar teachers, but Lucian​ is great at explanation and practical instruction. He's not just teaching you how to strum chords, but also about music theory.

He has the patience, and demeanor that is perfect for teaching. No easy task. I've seen other students of all ages here as well.

Great teacher"

"I used to play some guitar when I was young, but I had never taken any lessons. When I played with other guitarists, mostly in church settings, I would play simple cords and let the other guitarists cover up my mistakes. Now that I am 60 years old, I decided to make an effort at really learning how to play. I have only been taking lessons for 2 months, but Alex has been a great choice of instructors. He is familiar with the main type of music I like to play, contemporary worship music, and also is knowledgeable about Irish / Celtic music which I also love. He offers very helpful suggestions and instruction, and is very patient with the fact that I am 60 years old, and much of this, especially guitar tablature, is like learning a new language. Each lesson has some more insights and instruction to help me become a better player. I would recommend Alex to anyone looking for an instructor."

He was honest on the type of guitar needed for my daughter to play with more success and is always enthusiastic and full of constructive suggestions. My daughter's eyes sparkle during her 30 minutes with Kevin. I also love the emails he sends to explain her lessons and what she is to practice at home."

"I have taken guitar lessons in the past and wanted to revisit one of my passions again. I decided to take lessons with Ian since he is in my neighborhood and I’m really glad I did. Ian has been very patient and attentive to my learning style. As our lessons have progressed so has the direction of each class. It’s really cool to see how all the concepts we have gone over build on each other. I feel like Ian really goes above and beyond to learn about his students and what they are hoping to achieve. Ian has also been very flexible with my work schedule. After several months of lessons with Ian I can say I’ve learned several things from finger picking, timing, and reading notes. I can’t wait to continue my journey!"
