Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Taking a collaborative approach, I steer lessons towards whatever the student's musical goals are while moving at a pace that's comfortable. I create learning resources for my students, (tablature, leadsheets, visual examples of theory etc.) in addition to learning their preferred songs during my free time, so no part of the lesson is wasted. I love answering questions as to why certain things work musically and others don't, and seeing lightbulbs go off in the student's mind once they reach a personal breakthrough.

About Michael

I am a professional composer, songwriter, guitarist, and freelance music teacher. I graduated from the City College of New York, Magna Cum Laude. Lessons are individually tailored to whatever learning style suits the student best, at whatever pace is most comfortable and realistic. I have a set of

I have had the great opportunity to teach all levels for over 15 years in the United Kingdom, South Africa and the USA. I have held positions as guitar teacher at many Colleges, Universities and Companies around the UK and USA. I have worked in the distant learning department at the Manhattan School of Music, teaching students around the country from their studio base. With many of my students going onto music schools such as The New School, NYC, Queens College, and the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire I believe that I have a wide range of experience with all age ranges from beginners to beyond advanced. I focus on making the lessons as fun and engaging as possible whilst keeping on track to certain goals set by myself and the student throughout the year.

You'll start playing your favorite songs on the first lesson. From there, we'll connect the dots between all these songs and you'll naturally begin to see patterns.

Playing songs that you love is very exciting, and by accomplishing this, you'll be eager to learn more each time. Unlike most guitar teachers, my lessons are not about memorizing and working on all the details - I don't want you to feel like you're doing work, you need to be excited if you want to stick with it!

Acoustic guitar is a great instrument to play with others, and thats exactly how it should be taught. Our lessons will include a lot of playing together, where you will learn how to take on the different roles of lead melody and rhythm/chords.

For those who want to sing their favorite songs (or write their own), I will teach you how to sing and play simultaneously, in a fun way that will give you the ability to learn any song on your own.

About Doug

Playing music is all about having fun. Throughout my music career, I've realized the traditional teaching method is the main reason people end up quitting. Most instructors will teach you all the basics and then when you're ready, you can start to learn the songs you like. But I do it di

"I've been taking lessons with Nick for a few months now and it's been a really positive experience! I have no guitar experience at all so I'm coming in as a true guitar novice. Nick takes time to explain techniques and encourages you to "listen" to the notes and to hear how the music comes together. He's very patient and definitely has a wealth of guitar knowledge. If you're looking to learn guitar, then I'd definitely recommend Nick!"

"Tim is awesome, he is spiritually a great person, to have as a teacher and mentor. he is very patient. If you don't understand the lesson, just don't get frustrated, let him know, and he'll go over it again in different way that you will understand him. believe me I was worried at first that I didn't speaking in guitar terms or language and which I don't have any knowledge. Tim made it easy for me to understand, and I am learning at a pace that I feel very comfortable. Amen to that."

"Worked with Chris for the last 9 months weekly, I was a complete beginner on Acoustic only having a small background on Bass 20 years ago. Chris came in with a formal plan that incorporated the important foundation concepts and practice strategies, all while ensuring that we used music that kept my interest in keep up my playing. He was very flexible, sometimes we jammed, sometimes we focused on concepts and technique - it was all dependent on the mood of the week, but he always came prepared for both. I *highly* recommend Chris, I look forward to continuing our relationship in the future."

"I've never taken a guitar lesson before. Learning on my own prior to meeting Chris. I learned more in the very first lesson that I did in several months of figuring things out on my own. Chris is super responsive and adapts his lessons not only for my skill level, but also adapts the lessons to the small things that interest me. He's not only great at teaching the techniques needed to play well, but he provides enough theory so it's easy to understand. I'm extremely happy with Chris and would highly recommend him if you're learning to play."

"I thought trying to learn to play the guitar at the age of 35 with no musical background, with kids and a full time job was a daunting task. That was until I met John. I have had 30 minute lessons with John for the past year and a half. There was a steep learning curve for me in the beginning, but John remained very patient and encouraging. His knowledge of music and his ability to explain and teach in a way that I could understand is second to none! I can now play a couple dozen songs and have a great foundation of skills to play many many more! I recommend John to anyone of all ages who wish to learn how to play the guitar."

How to Simplify Your Live Guitar Rig for Performances

Playing the guitar is such a fantastic experience. It’s so relieving to be on stage or in your designated practice space and just wail on your instrument. However, one of the difficulties of being a guitar player is deciding what gear is needed for live performances. We often get trapped in thinking that we must have the biggest and loudest guitar rig for shows, accompanied by a pedalboard equipped with 30+ pedals. Don’t get me wrong, there is something extremely satisfying about plugging in …
