Private Guitar Teacher

I like to teach students how to play along to the music they know and love, while developing their technique, and encouraging them to explore their creative side!

You will learn music theory, scales and chords, musical notation, and aural skills all while playing along to your favorite tunes.

I will help you become the guitarist you want to be!

About Nick

I am a multi-instrumentalist from Queens, NYC, and I was the cellist/guitarist for the first national tour of the hit broadway show "Waitress". I trained as a classical cellist at the Aaron Copland School of Music, and I am a lifelong guitarist. Before starting my broadway career, I worked a

Great first lessons. I have 2 boys, each learning a different instrument (violin & guitar), and Nick was great with them. Looking forward to the future lessons.
Lilli
Nick is really the best instructor ever! He is very knowledgeable about different styles and techniques, but he tailors each lesson so that the student is learning on their own terms - not pushing a methodology or using cookie cutter plans. He is very patient and kind and will work with you at your own pace, whether you are a beginner or want to learn on a more professional level. He plays a ton of different instruments and has experience touring with bands as well as classical training. He's really a one-stop-shop for all your musical needs! Hire him! He's made my life a lot better by teaching me his ways.

Private Guitar Teacher

The main goal of my lessons is for my students to genuinely enjoy the guitar and to walk away excited to put their knowledge into action. As someone who has been studying the guitar for 15+ years, I know the challenges of practicing and moving beyond the technical knowledge of the instrument. I help my students learn using their personal musical interests and inspirations. All ages and abilities welcome.

About Franklin

As a guitarist, composer, and educator, music has always been at the heart of life. I graduated from Berklee College of Music with a BM in Jazz Composition and recently graduated from NYU with a MM in Jazz Studies, where I also taught as an adjunct guitar instructor. Currently based in New York,

Jason vocally coached me during many studio sessions over the years. Not only is he an excellent musician in diverse genres, but he is patient, attentive, and communicates clearly. He knows how to give the right amount of support to help vocalists find their very best sound and style for a particular genre. I would recommend Jason for any singer looking to generally improve their voice, prepare for an audition, recording, or performance.

Online Guitar Teacher

As a guitar instructor of over 4 years, my main goal with teaching guitar is for the student to learn to enjoy the instrument itself. Lessons generally begin with basic fundamental guitar ideas and technique. We then move into playing songs and eventually into solo's and creating your own music. Whatever your goals are, I can make sure you achieve them.

I have been taking lessons with Halec for a few months and I see a lot of progress in my playing. He's patient and makes the lesson fun!
Karen
My son has been taking lessons with Halec for the past few months and has been very much enjoying playing the guitar. Halec made him feel very comfortable and at ease, and was very patient with him during his first few lessons. Thank you for providing a great experience, we will definitely be continuing lessons with Halec moving forward.

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.

"Carla has escalated both my acoustic and electric guitar playing to unexpected levels, from just strumming songs to actually including licks, riffs, and leads to sound more like the pros.
with her experience and knowledge, she has filled in critical lapses in my musical theory. Later, I decided to learn short-scale bass, and Carla was right there to show me the way.
If you've EVER wanted to learn (or pick back again) any style of guitar, bass, electric, acoustic, keyboard, piano, ukulele, kazoo, (or whatever) contact Carla ASAP for lessons. She gives lessons to students all across the USA, ONLINE through Skype, Zoom, FaceTime, or any conference app you want to use, at your convenience, NEVER needing to drive through Jersey, and never needing to leave your home.
She custom tailors lessons to all levels. Great experience! Students even "Zoom" in to perform at her recitals on a big screen TV. Give her a call, she's the rare, amazing, patient teacher you've been searching for. You won't be disappointed."

His technique in teaching allowed my son to enjoy learning guitar by playing songs he wanted to play. This made him want to practice just for the fun of it! Alex taught my son from the time he was 9 years old until he was 15. The easy going, positive attitude Alex exudes encouraged my son along his journey and made a strong bond and connection between the two of them. I wholeheartedly encourage anyone who would like to learn to play guitar to sign up for lessons with Alex!"

Guitar Chord Charts: 11 Easy Tips to Read Fingering Charts on Acoustic Guitars

While it's true that you don't need to read music to play the guitar, you should learn how to read guitar chord charts. A guitar chord chart is a visual representation of a chord. This helpful visual is a little like music-by-numbers; it tells you which finger goes where and on what string, so in case you come across a chord you don't know, you'll be able to play it. Here's an example of a guitar chord chart, also known as a guitar chord diagram: Guitar chord charts are a cinch …
