Guitar Lessons in New York City

By JP S. - New York City Guitar Teacher

As the busiest city in the United States, New York City has some of the most exciting and challenging opportunities for aspiring guitar artists. So depending on what you want, and how hard you are willing to work for it, living and working here provides one of greatest opportunities you can find in this country!

I live and work mostly in upper Manhattan, but occasionally have gigs in the Village or other places around town. I teach most of my private guitar lessons in NYC up here in Inwood, and while a little noisy at times; this is a way more low-key area than the rest of the island. Plus, on a beautiful spring day we have up to three different parks in easy walking distance from the A train to take our practice outside. My personal favorite is Fort Tryon, with several different unique spots to get the creative juices flowing.

I specialize in rhythm players and singers/songwriters. We work hard to learn the basic techniques and how to tap into your creativity to write songs that really matter to you. If they matter to you, they will matter to someone else. As an instructor, it’s also important that my beginner students understand the history of the styles of music they want to play as well. For example, did you know that just about every form of American popular music (particularly guitar-based music) has its roots in traditional Blues of the early 20th Century? It’s true! We explore how all the pieces fit and what comes before to get us into the future!

My lessons are fun, individually paced and geared to what you want. Sign up with a New York guitar instructor today!

*** Lesson Details ***
Music is fun.

My personality is laid back, but I would never say that I teach that way.
There is a delicate balance between learning, fun, and concentration.

I have watched my students (especially the beginners) grow as people as well as musicians over the course of a few months. It's really amazing to watch someone do things they never thought they would do, sing or play something they thought was beyond them.
That alone makes what I do really special to me.

Our lessons will be laid-back, encouraging, and productive. We will work together to help you achieve your goals and gain a well-rounded music education, regardless of age or musical background. Students who study guitar with me will not only learn songs they love to play, but will learn proper technique, sight-reading, music theory, and ear training. I tailor each lesson based on the musical interests and goals of the student. I aim to give the students a solid foundation in technique and theory in order to help the student feel comfortable with the guitar and to make progress at a steady rate.

About Summer
Our lessons will be laid-back, encouraging, and productive. We will work together to help you achieve your goals and gain a well-rounded music education, regardless of age or musical background.

I am passionate about sharing musical knowledge with others and believe that the most important aspect of teaching music is creating an environment that is encouraging, fun, and individualized for each student. I have over 7 years of experience teaching piano, theory, and guitar to students of all ages and musical backgrounds.

Above all, our lessons will be about learning what you want to learn
, no matter the genre. Curriculum for our lessons will draw from variety of methods. These include theory, ear training, sight-reading exercises, body mapping, technique, improvisation skills, composition, and songbooks.

Students who are interested to do so will have the opportunity to perform at spring and winter recitals.

I graduated from Berklee College of Music in Boston with degrees in Performance and Audio Engineering. I have studied with extraordinary musicians and teachers such as Ray Santisi, Jennifer Elowsky-Fox, Doug Johnson, Yakov Gubanov, Tibor Putszai and Suzanna Sifter.

Feel free to send me a message if you have any questions or if you don't see a time slot available that works for you! My schedule changes frequently and is often flexible, so we can likely work something out.

Summer was a well organized instructor, highly skilled at adapting a lesson to the level of the student, which in my case was very low. She was thorough in her instructions, and provided detailed explanations as well as suggestions to increase the ability to grasp and retain the material. The material she crafted to leave behind for practice seems appropriate to build skills and confidence. Overall, an excellent instructor.

About Matthew
I have been playing professionally for over 30 years and have taught for over 10. I am proficient on keyboards, guitar, bass, ukelele, as well as lead and harmony vocals and songwriting. My focus is on developing your musical intuition through ear training, and accessing the music within. I have a home recording studio to help with the learning process. I provide a fun, safe, non-critical environment where you can access your inner musician in the most enjoyable way possible.

Many of my students have gone onto become prolific songwriters and musicians and have recorded albums. Even begin
ners can learn quickly from my method which emphasizes techniques for keeping learning music fun.

My 10th CD was released last year on Sojourn Records and was featured as NPR song of the day. Over the years my music has received much critical acclaim as I have continued to tour the world. I have opened for legends such as David Bowie, Ron Sexsmith, Robyn Hitchcock, Morphine, Bob Mould, Freedy Johnston, among many others. I have produced over a dozen albums by other artists and songwriters, and composed for major motion pictures including last years film, WON’T BACK DOWN starring Maggie Gyllenhaal.

“In a career spanning more than 20 years, he has established himself as one of America's great under-the-radar songwriters. Had he emerged five decades back, he might have been a Tin Pan Alley stalwart, turning out intelligent, accessible songwriting with the clockwork genius of and Gary Goffin. His work is rife with the clever, incisive tunefulness that marked that era.”-- National Public Radio

*** Lesson Details ***
Students can expect to discover or re-discover their love for music and and their own natural musical inclinations. Many students report an increased sense of joy and possibility in their own lives. Curriculum depends on level of student, but is focused on being able to play favorite songs, develop comfort and ease in playing style, and accessing creativity and originality in approach. After 3 to 6 months working with me, most students can feel comfortable calling themselves a musician!

*** Specialties ***
I teach mainly guitar, keyboards, ukelele, and voice from beginning up to intermediate. I try to incorporate songwriting into the process as i find that it speeds up the process and helps to encourage enthusiasm and a more focused effort and better results. I am fluent in most styles but come from a folk, rock, country, pop background. I also have a home studio and use recording techniques to develop style and vocal ability.

About Rob
I am an accomplished, award-winning guitarist, composer and teacher and have been teaching guitar and music for 20 years. I have both a Bachelor's and a Masters Degree in Music.

This is my 5th lesson with Rob and he's an amazing teacher. Somehow he incorporates the basics of guitar through songs that you want to play, making learning guitar a much more interactive and fun experience. He's also full of knowledge. I've yet to have a question that he hasn't answered in an easy way to understand for a beginner. It's only been 5 lessons but i've learned more from 5 45 minute lessons than i have from the countless hours i tried teaching myself on the internet. I highly recommend rob, great guitarist and teacher!

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. All levels and ages are welcome.
