Teaching music is truly one of my passions. Each lesson is personalized towards the students goals, while simultaneously building a solid musical foundation. Music is a great medium for self-expression, and it is in my best interest to help my students achieve their fullest potential as a guitarist and musician.

About Ryan

I began my musical training in Huntington Beach, California, guided by esteemed blues musician Walter Trout. Upon moving to New Jersey in 2010, I was gradually exposed to the New York metropolitan area jazz scene, becoming enamored with it. This passion led me to the New Jersey Performing Arts Cente

My 7 year old son has been taking online lessons with Ryan for over a year now. Ryan is absolutely the most patient and knowledgeable instructor we could have ever hoped for. He really gets his students and their needs. I wasn't sure how virtual lessons would go for my young son, but honestly it has been awesome! I can't say enough good things about Ryan and his teaching style!

Mr. Aragon has continually shown me his love for music through his teaching. As an instructor, he paid close attention to my technique when playing the piano, guitar, or flute, and helped me improve it. Through the years, he has strongly influenced my love for music, and I continue to use what he has taught me when playing instruments and music outside the classroom. Overall, Mr. Aragon is a great, professional instructor who is passionate about teaching students music through music theory and his love of rock n roll and classical music.

I went for my first lesson this morning & John was excellent! Very professional & informative. I look forward to more upcoming lessons in the following weeks!!!

Mr.Aragon was my son’s grade school music teacher for 8 yrs. He is very patient and encouraging, and my son really enjoyed it when Mr.Aragon would teach the class music from the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s. Now my son appreciates Motown, Michael Jackson, the Beatles, and Billy Joel as much as he does current alternative music, and he is 13!

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 have been playing music almost my entire life. I first started on trombone in 4th grade then switched to guitar in 6th. I picked up the electric bass in my later teenage years and learned the upright bass (both jazz and classical) in college. My students get the benefit of my education, as well

5 lessons in and David has gotten me to break through some of my bad techniques and has also given me completely different ways to think about my instrument. We're just getting started and I couldn't be more excited to see where this journey is going to take my skills.
Kailie
David was/is a great guitar teacher ! I came to him with some knowledge on how to strum but he completely transformed my technique... making it easier & better to play! I’m looking forward to continuing my lessons with him & improving my guitar skill!! I Highly recommend David !
Jay
Very grateful to have found David on this site and add to the chorus of great reviews. I have entered the world of music through the bass guitar with David's instruction and am already hooked. Bass is a fascinating (and challenging) instrument so I appreciate working with a professional who caters to beginners. I am looking forward to exploring more about music with each lesson and gaining more confidence playing this instrument. Thanks David!

Charles is the perfect teacher to learn guitar , very understanding and down to earth makes you feel comfortable in learning the guitar

Charles has been my teacher for a few weeks now and I am so happy I found him on takelessons. He is an amazing guitar player but also an amazing teacher, he always comes prepared and the class is well organized. He is also open to hearing suggestions to learn your favorite songs. He is very encouraging which gives the motivation to keep going which is so important for a beginner. I am already seeing great progresses after only a few weeks, and I can't wait for more lessons this year. Highly recommend him if you are looking to get started with the guitar! You will really enjoy learning with him, he is also a very cool and fun guy so you can learn in a nice environment, whether it is in his studio at his place, at your place or online.
Gaurav Jung Pande
I learnt music theory and improvisation with Charles for 4 months in New York.

Charles is highly approachable and extremely knowledgeable. He walks the perfect line between making his students feel comfortable whilst also pushing them to become better in every single session.

I got a solid grasp of the basics of music theory and was able to fully improvise in different scales at the end of the course. The growth I had was tremendous - all thanks to Charles' guidance.

Charles will take the time to fully understand the needs, goals and struggles of his students. He will be there for them inside and outside of class time because he genuinely cares about music and his students becoming better.

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

For acoustic guitar the first thing I do when I meet a student is to interview the student and find out why they want to learn how to play the guitar and what are some of their goals. Then I find out what style of music they would like to learn. I have the student come up with ten songs they would like to learn. I take this information and structure future guitar lessons around the essential elements of these songs. I design each lesson to teach the specific skills required to learn those songs. I create an organized binder guitar workbook and having a teaching degree I create all of the lessons to meet each students individual needs that include lessons on theory, technique, chords, rhythm, scales, arpeggios, songs, song form, and exercises etc. I use a color coded method to teach scales, chords and theory that I created that help students not only understand scales but also they are able to see visually where chords come from. I break down each song into easy digestible parts so ...

I only have high accolades for David. I've learned more from David in the mere 5 lessons then I learned in a years worth of lessons in the past. His method of teaching is perfect with the right amount of homework. He customizes the lesson for the type of music I ultimately want to play with a good balance of theory and practical lessons to get me there. Bravo!!!

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.

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.
