Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

With 30 years of guitar experience, I favor a flexible style of teaching, tailored to fit the particular profile of each student as an individual. As a published author of guitar instruction books in the fingerpicking, classical, flamenco and acoustic blues styles, I have a large library of materials to choose from, so that every student's level, musical taste can be accommodated – and let's not forget to have some fun with the guitar, since after all the important thing is to enjoy playing.

About Jared

Hi, I am a native New Yorker and a guitar player since age 13. I played in blues/rock bands throughout my teens, getting to play the legendary clubs of my Greenwich Village neighborhood. My discovery of Spanish classical guitar music occurred in college at UC Berkeley, and I graduated with a BA in

I have had a very positive experience with Adam as my guitar instructor. He is very knowledgeable, patient, and encouraging. I could see myself making progress and look forward to my next lesson!
Mark
I've been taking lessons from Adam for about 3 years now - He is an amazing teacher! I took lessons before when I was younger but I quickly lost interest. I decided to get back into it later in life (I'm 35 now), but I still struggled to find the right teacher. One was too serious and the other was too relaxed and I felt like I wasn't actually making any progress. With Adam I got the best of both worlds! I was getting better at the guitar, and at the same time I was enjoying myself throughout the whole process. I'm still taking lessons with Adam and I would recommend that you do the same!
Paul
I took jazz guitar for two years from Adam. He’s a great teacher and excellent musician. As a former “cowboy chords” guitarist, I jumped from 5 to about 15 chords in a few weeks. Adam is patient and lots of fun. I still catch some of his gigs when I’m back in NYC.

"I am a professional guitarist and a college level guitar instructor and I've known Andrea for a few years now via Facebook and ReverbNation. My musical experiences with her have taught me that she loves music and she is very determined when she sets out on a song project and she sees it through to the very end. Knowing her, I feel that she would apply that determination and her talents to the students that she will be teaching . . . determined to help them to become good musicians. She would always seek success for them as her overall goal."

"Remi is very talented and extremely patient. He has a keen eye and ear to be able to spot the little details necessary to improve one's performance. My son has already exceeded my expectations in music talent and ability thanks to Remi and we have a lot of fun experimenting with sounds that I didn't know were even possible with a guitar. The On-Site lessons are definitely a step above in quality compared to the online lessons, and worth the extra cost. As Remi likes to say, "It's not hard. It's challenging." And I might add, "It's fun too." Looking forward to the time when the student becomes the teacher."

"I've taken lessons from William for several years. He helped me choose several of my guitars and worked with me on my acoustic, classical and electric guitars. His knowledge is extensive as guitars are his life. I've had other guitar instructors who teach to make money, or on the side. William on the other hand, teaches because he lives guitar, it's his passion.

William is exceptional with many of the technical aspects that improved my playing efficiency and increased my safety on the guitar. You might ask, "What do I mean by safety?" He taught me how to hold my guitar and reinforces playing it in a manner that reduces the potential for injuries and allows me to play for longer periods of time without getting tired. That's very important if you love the guitar!

No matter what style of playing I'm interested in, William has been excellent in showing me how to achieve the sound I'm looking for. If I want to play a particular song and he doesn't know it, all I have to do is play it on I-Tunes for him. He immediately shows me how to play the song, or adapt it to my level so that I can.

William is a patient and enthusiastic teacher that encourages and challenges me to continue to improve. That's why I continue to take lessons from him and recommend him to anyone who is serious about learning to play.
Cheers,"
