Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I'm a specialist in Brazilian Guitar and have played and used American Folk Styles to teach finger picking for many years. This includes Travis Picking, Blues and arrangement of all sorts of melodies for guitar. One of the first world musics I played was Irish music and I have a nice repertoire of these melodies to help the student learn how to play a linear melody. Reading is not necessary but I'm expert at getting people to read by using simple familiar music.

About Billy

Billy N. has played Jazz, Brazilian and Classical music in the NYC area for the last 20 years. He has actively taught both finger-style and pick guitar for the last 20 years. He was on staff at the American Institute of Guitar for 11 years. His book on Brazilian Guitar is published by Alfred Music

Billy is a patient instructor who is perfect for a beginner with some musical knowledge. I feel like we accomplished quite a bit in one lesson and I am looking forward to advancing under his guidance! #totallyworthit

I have been taking lessons with Billy since January 2015. I am a total beginner and I really think I have made the best choice ever to pick him as my teacher. Billy is an experienced guitar teacher and a professional player that knows great techniques for beginners. He has been teaching me basics of guitar in a smart way, and at each lesson I feel I learn something new and at the same time I can clearly see how much progress I have made since our first lesson. He has also been teaching me how to read music and tabs which proofed to be extremely useful every time I want to learn a new song by myself. Highly recommended!
Lynn W.
I cannot recommend Billy enough. I studied jazz improvisation with Billy for three years, and later returned to study Brazilian guitar and Piedmont-style finger picking with him. I had been playing for more than twenty years when I started studying with him and he not only helped me improve my playing technically and creatively (on electric and nylon stringed guitars) but also expanded my knowledge of theory and helped me develop new approaches to composing and arranging. I am still working with the material he gave me and take lessons from him whenever my schedule allows.

First, I will determine your level and purpose of classes. In the first lesson for beginners, I usually give basic information about the guitar (for example, the history of the guitar, the structure of the guitar, the correct fit when playing the guitar, tuning the guitar)

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 -- if you know your theory, you know the best way to express your idea without having to think about it
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

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 am a bass player first, not a guitarist who also teaches bass. Students will learn technique, theory and groove from a teacher who understands that as bass players, we are in a unique position. Since bass is both a harmony and rhythm instrument we have the opportunity to develop into leaders in

David was very patient and thorough with the introductory lesson. He corrected some basic habits my son had and had him sounding better in 10 minutes.

He also had practical recommendations for daily practice.

I highly recommend David.
Chris H.
David went over basic music theory and rhythm with me, and corrected some technique issues. He explained things clearly and when we put some of it into practice in the final minutes I saw instant results. Absolutely excited to do my homework and for my next lesson.
Robert F.
As a beginning, self-taught bass player of four months, I wanted to find a teacher who could analyze and critique my playing. I scheduled five lessons with David over a time period of three months. David was instrumental in analyzing and critiquing bad techniques and habits I acquired. He very thoroughly emphasized proper fretting technique and finger positioning; exercises were given that helped me obtain full tonal quality and efficient fretboard navigation skills. We also reviewed basic theory, scale modes, rhythmic weight, pentatonics and arpeggios; seminal knowledge for the beginner.

A technical type player, David has excellent playing skills as well as a comprehensive knowledge of theory and its practical application. He is a good listener and showed a genuine interest in helping me achieve my goals. I definitely can see an improvement in my playing skills....playing more confidently and efficiently.

Highly recommended.......

"My name is Justin, and I've been tutored by Paul since October 2018. I came to him without any prior music experience and unsure if I could ever learn to play the guitar. I'm glad that I chose him as my tutor. He knows how to explain different concepts in a way that I can understand. That coupled with his eagerness for me to get better makes him an excellent teacher. Every time I attend his class I'm always motivated to improve. I would definitely recommend him to anyone trying to play an instrument."

"I've always wanted to learn how to play the guitar, and finally decided to pursue lessons a few months ago. After not having much luck with other teachers, I was lucky to find Ahmad and I am really getting the kind of instruction I've been looking for. Ahmad's lessons are extremely well-prepared and are thoughtful of my goals and learning style. I'm moving at a pace that is comfortable for me, yet challenges me to make improvements with each lesson. As an instructor, Ahmad is super patient and seems to genuinely care that I am both having fun and also meeting my goals as a student. Also, Ahmad is just a really fun person! My friend and I went to check out one of his British Band Shaughnessy's shows, and it was just crazy fun! I'd give him 10 stars if I could! :D"

"took private beginner lessons with Ahmad before moving out of the country -- he was extremely accommodating and patient despite my erratic schedule which prevented me from practicing as often as I needed to.

Ahmad is an incredibly talented musician and a wonderful teacher for any skill level. He taught me the basics and introduced me to valuable lessons to steadily increase my skills. He also has a great taste in music and in addition learning from him each week, I loved picking up recommendations for new artists and bands to listen to."

4 Tips For Maximizing the Lifespan of Your Acoustic Guitar

Whether your acoustic guitar is brand new or gently used, you can do a few simple things to keep it in great condition! Follow these tips from guitar teacher Samuel B. to get the most out of your acoustic guitar... Let's face it. Acoustic guitars can be an outright nuisance to keep in shape. They're delicate, sensitive to both humidity and temperature patterns, and often have weak central support.
