He's a really great guy. Really liked his lessons, he's great at the guitar, and really smart about helping you to understand the fundamentals and really build a solid base upon which to grow as a guitar player. Unfortunately, I had to move away from Staten Island to Brooklyn, so I had to discontinue lessons, otherwise I definitely would have continued with him.

Guitar lessons can go in a number of directions, from learning how to read music to strumming chords or developing ideas for improvisation. I try to create an agenda that fits the interests of each student, whether they want to work on developing great technique or simply learning to play songs.

About Adrian
Music has played a big role in my life ever since I was 4 and heard The Beatles' "A Hard Day's Night." From that point on, I committed myself towards a life in music, soon after beginning lessons on classical guitar. Through high school I studied classical and jazz guitar at Philadelphia's esteemed Settlement Music School, and I subsequently attended New York University as a jazz studies major in both guitar and composition for a bachelors and masters degree.

As a teacher, I love to pair my academic knowledge of music with my decades of experience listening to and playing popular music ranging from rock and funk to bluegrass and hip hop. I've performed in settings ranging from jazz clubs in Italy, to theater in New York, and rock clubs in Philadelphia. In my lessons I like to bring that diverse experience to create a curriculum tha
t compliments the interests of the student.

*** Lesson Details ***
In a private lesson setting I like to say, "What you put in is what you'll get out." Students who show up having practiced a lot, who are eager to dive in depth into a subject, will grow immensely in a short amount of time. Those who are interested in practicing guitar as a casual activity also have plenty to gain, and I try to push my students in accordance with their interest level.

As a teacher, I like to support my students' personal ambitions on the instrument and with music on the whole, drawing on a wide range of materials. My goal is to put the proper resources in front of my students and ask them questions that will push them to discover the elements of music they knew they were looking for and some they didn't.

Every student has personal goal, and I like to draw on my diverse background in music to help each of mine achieve theirs.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Common space seating for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect my students to have an instrument, paper, and a pencil. I can bring a music stand if necessary.

*** Specialties ***
I have been playing various styles of guitar, from classical to jazz to rock and beyond, for most of my life, so I feel comfortable showing all students the style they are most interested in.

Adrian is not only great guitar player but also a great teacher. I had taken private lesson since summer of 2015 and had a great learning experience on both playing classical guitar and understanding a music in general. He breaks down a piece and tries to help me understand how the music should be played and suggests different ways to approach no matter how simple a piece is. I would recommend for classical guitar and big thumbs up!

Fun and Inspiring

Adrian's teaching style has helped me to understand the music pieces in an intuitive way. His ability to breakdown a complex concept into simple ones makes the learning fun and natural. Adrain makes the lessons interesting by discussing the music piece in length and also by sharing the music history behind it. He lets the student decide the pace of learning, but at the same time nudges him to take the next step. I will recommend Adrian to anyone who is interested in learning music.

I would highly recommend Adrian.

Adrian's passion for music really comes through in his lessons, always making lessons both informative and fun. Having no prior experience with the guitar before taking lessons from Adrian, he really catered to my strengths and passion points to find a teaching method that suited me well. It wasn't long before I was able to play a song and all the while, in addition to learning the very basics, Adrian also tuned into music theory and songwriting, which gave our lessons great depth. Additionally, Adrian was always very accommodating with my hectic schedule. I highly recommend Adrian to anyone seeking to begin or advance their guitar skills.

I picked up the guitar over ten years ago to accompany myself while I sang. Having developed some skills, I can now offer my students the basics of guitar so that, in a pressure-free and supportive environment, they can truly get going. Once my students are comfortable playing chord progressions, simple songs, simple rhythmic patterns, and fingerpicking styles, I offer techniques so they can learn even more material at home. If a student outgrows me and wants to move into advanced classical guitar performance or jazz guitar, I refer them to one of my very good professional guitarist friends. It's all about the journey.

About Jillian
I have a Master's degree in Music Therapy, am a nationally board certified music therapist (MT-BC); performer and vocal instructor (Bachelor's in Classical Voice); certified yoga instructor and meditation guide (200+); certified and attuned Reiki master; professional freelance writer and editor.

...I find joy in a lot of places! And often I find these areas of study inform and augment each other.

Music therapy has afforded me a great deal of experience working with children, teens, and adults with special needs including, autism, Down's syndrome, cerebral palsy, emotional disturbances and developmental delays as well as teens and adults with psychosocial issues, including but not limited to anxiety, depression, grief, ADHD, personality disorders, and more.

I incorporate my experience as a therapist into the educative setting.

As a voice teacher, I want to help my students settle comfortably into their own musicality by showing them the building blocks of a solid technique, drawing particularly from the things that helped me grow as a vocalist. I want my students to feel strong in their body, comfortable and relaxed in their breath, and confident in their performance.

I am a professional vocalist in NYC. I perform liturgical and classical music, as well as musical theater repertoire. I participate in professional operas, choral groups and other concert series. Performing gives me a sense of bliss and completeness that is indescribable.

As a certified yoga instructor, I teach in many locations throughout Westchester. I was trained at Yoga Haven in Scarsdale, New York with Betsy Kase, and earned a 200-hour certificate in Asana, Pranayama, and Meditation. I offer private yoga instruction and meditation at my home studio. My studio comes fully equipped with all yoga props, aromatherapy, and music. Hands-on-assists and personalized classes offered to deepen your experience.

It is a joy to offer Reiki to curious, open clients in need of energy healing. Reiki is a noninvasive energy healing technique totally separate of any religious affiliation and available to anyone. It is a difficult to describe the relaxing, soothing, and deep-healing effects of Reiki to someone who has never experienced.

Please feel free to inquire about any of my services!

*Note: If you don't see a time slot that is suitable to your needs but would like to try a session or lesson with me, feel free to register for the Flex Plan, and we will work out week-to-week times!!**

**Note: If you are interested in music therapy, please email me with a bit about yourself and your personal goals.

It was truly a pleasure meeting Concetta for my first ever violin lesson. It is difficult to learn anything at the age 40, specially a musical instrument, but she made it comfortable and easy to understand. She's extremely patient a key quality when teaching a subject such a music to anyone. I would say, give her teaching style a try and you won't regret it. Very knowledgeable indeed.

I teach good playing technique and broadly applicable musical knowledge by working on music you actually want to play. I've played and worked with students on Bach sonatas, Dylan/Donovan style fingerpicking, jazz comping and solos, rock, metal and punk riffs, Steve Vai-esque two-hand tapping, as well as songwriting, music theory, and aural skills, so no matter what kind of music you like or how you're looking to improve, chances are I can help take you do it. Intermediate level and above.

I completed an M.M. in Composition at the Yale School of Music in 2014, and have taught extensively for the past eight years in a variety of settings.

I encourage students to grow and develop as a musician - not just a guitar player. It's important to understand the use of space, technique, groove & taste.

As a multi-instrumentalist, producer & composer - I've been able to explore and experience the industry as a performer and recording artist. As a graduate of Berklee College of Music, I also expect to reflect and draw knowledge to share with my students. In a friendly and musical environment, let's learn!

About Ed
Ed, originally from Bath, England started Spanish guitar lessons at the age of 7; he was later encouraged and inspired to pursue various aspects within the musical world, from writing and production to performing as an artist. Going back and forth between acoustic and electric guitar, Ed has drawn inspiration from many places around the world that has led him to compose for orchestras, produce records and play in pop groups and rock bands. Having achieved a degree from Berklee College of Music with great honours, he now continues his career in New York City where he resides as of August 2016. Ed has recorded guitar on releases from bands such as alt-J and Chaz French. Some experiences include a recording session set up by the Red Bull Music Academy whereas on the live performance front, accompanying the Boston Pops and opening for Maroon

I love to get to know my students and identify their specific goals. I personalize a curriculum for each student that includes learning the music they want to learn with the technique that I feel is important to learn. I’ll teach you theory, style, and performance techniques, Let’s have some fun!

About Casey
Hi! I am a professional singer, actor, and musician and have been doing performing on stage since I was 9 years old. I received my degree in music from James Madison University and moved to New York City where I have stayed employed as an actor and musician.

I am currently recording my first demo EP of original songs. My songwriting has been a work in progress and I’m looking forward to this album coming out. I also have been working as a pit musician for musicals and am very interested in helping students with an interest in Musical theatre. I also love working with children, I have been an instructor at Little Maestros music school, and it is the best part of my day seeing children learn to sing and dance!

I learned how to play guitar from reading music while many guitarists learn by ear. Being able to read music is invaluable whe
n it comes to playing with bands, learning new songs, and writing your own music. My teaching is a combination of ear training and sight reading to give you a well rounded perspective of music.
