About Andy
Hi there! My name is Andy and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2002 and have loved helping my students to become good guitarists and musicians. I went to Berklee College of Music and earned a Bachelor of Music in 2002 (Magna Cum Laude).

I'm an open-minded and optimistic person. I have taught hundreds of students over the years and have developed a lot of my own teaching materials along the way. I'm very flexible in the way I teach and I always try to find out what type of learners my students are, so I can design a personalized practice plan for fast progress. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Andy was my guitar instructor for more than year. He is a master in theory and practice and is able to bring you to the highest levels. The breath of learning opportunities he offers in terms of techniques, styles, rhythms, songs etc is huge and allows for training and development in the desired areas at every possible level. And he can back up the lessons by the underlying music theory as needed. In practice, Andy quickly spots where issues lie and provides useful hints to overcome technical problems. In addition he offers useful material which helps when practicing at home.

If you just want to learn easy riffs or songs or if you want to become an awesome player/rockstar that can shred, play in bands and stand out as a player, I can get you where you want to be!

About Brandon
I am a Rutgers University graduate with a B.A in Music Performance. I have played guitar for over 10 years, and currently perform all over the tri-state area as a solo acoustic performer and songwriter. I also play in several rock bands. I teach several students ages 5-65 right now, and have taught students how to play guitar for several years. In addition to playing in a rock band, I also am well versed in many music styles including jazz, pop, country and acoustic, songwriting, performance, music theory and recording skills/production.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very flexible teacher and suit my teaching style and format to fit each specific student's interests and needs. My goal is to keep the student interested and make learning guitar a fun experience.

I like to find out the kind of music the student listens to, or what
they want to get out of playing guitar, and then mold my teaching around that. For instance, if a student or parent wants a formal musical education, I will teach how to read music notes and teach them from a book. If the student wants to learn simple songs and be able to play around the campfire for fun, I make sure to guide the student toward doing just that.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Dedicated lesson space. Guitars. Music stands. Music books. Seating for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide my own instruments I would require them to have te instrument they want to learn available and the necessary power source and amp if needed.

*** Specialties ***
Rock country jazz mainly though I know classical music theory as well as counterpoint etc

Our teenage son connected with Jered right away, and it was an excellent first lesson. Aaparrently our son learned so much more in one private face to face lesson than online classes he's been doing for a month. ( This isn't online private/group lesson, it's a class with video lectures and exercises). Would definitely continue.

Hello! I’ve been playing guitar for over half my life and teaching for five years now. My love for music has played a huge role in my life, and I love sharing this passion with my students. Whether you are wanting to learn how to perform, compose music, or play your favorite song, I promise to help you achieve your goal. I’ve taught a variety of ages, and I truly believe it's never too early or late to learn an instrument. Every student is unique in what they are wanting to learn, so I promise to structure each student’s lessons to fit their individual goals and interests. It's also very important to me that my students enjoy each and every lesson, so the student is in complete control of their learning.

About Daniel
Hello! I’ve been playing guitar for over half my life and teaching for five years now. I first began learning guitar at a young age, and my passion for music has grown ever since.

My musical education began with guitar and music theory lessons when I was ten years old and continued until I graduated high school. These lessons included songwriting, music theory, and many other topics related to guitar. I also learned a variety of musical genres, including classic rock, acoustic, pop, country, and a bunch more. Being exposed to such a wide range of artists and genres was an incredible experience because it allowed me to learn numerous techniques and musical arrangements. This is also where I fell in love with artists like John Mayer, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, and Eric Clapton. These influential artists played a huge role in sh
aping my guitar playing, songwriting, and technique. This also led to me joining a singer-songwriter trio called Two Beards and a Boy where I was the lead guitarist. We currently perform at city events, fundraisers, and numerous restaurants in the DFW area.

In middle school, I became the lead electric guitarist in my church’s band. I have also lead the worship service on multiple occasions and subbed in at different instruments as needed. I also began taking private vocal performance lessons where I learned how to read music, sight read, and other musical skills. I continued taking these lessons in high school, where I was involved in multiple nationally ranked choirs and performed at Carnegie Hall in 2016. Being involved in my high school's varsity choir not only honed my overall musical abilities but led to opportunities accompanying the choir as a guitarist.

My love for music has played a huge role in my life, and I love sharing this passion with my students. Nothing beats the excitement of a student as they’re able to play their first song. Whether you are wanting to learn how to perform, compose music, or play your favorite song, I promise to help you achieve your goal.

I began giving guitar and music theory lessons in high school. I’ve taught a variety of ages, and I truly believe it's never too early or late to learn an instrument. Every student is unique in what they are wanting to learn, so I promise to structure each student’s lessons to fit their individual goals and interests. Also, it's very important to me that my students enjoy each and every lesson, so the student is in complete control of their learning. I have been working with children and youth for many years through the Upward Sports program, and I love building connections with all of my students to create a comfortable and fun learning environment.

As a college student at UT, I am very flexible with scheduling, so feel free to contact me about available times for lessons. I hope to hear from you soon, and please let me know if you have any questions!

From Jimi Hendrix to Red Hot Chili Peppers to Reggae to even slide guitar I can show how to bend, wail, rock and jam out!

About Jennifer
I began playing guitar at 12 years old. Before that I had dappled with the piano and always sang. There was something about the guitar that just drew me in! I always loved seeing the hands of guitar players and the sounds that would accompany those shapes.

Guitar is a very pattern based instrument. Once you learn the patterns and intentionally "program" those patterns into your playing, you eventually don't have to think about the theory or the pattern you can just play guitar effortlessly! But first it takes practice. Not just any kind of practice, perfect practice that is consistent. If you play a different fingering each time you play the same scale it can make learning the pattern harder. it's like you are always doing something different to get the same result! This slows the guitar learning process. I will give you effective le
arning practices to begin to accelerate your guitar playing skills! Everyone wants to express themselves with ease and practicing the patterns of guitar "language" is the key!

I began teaching at my hometown of Lake Ronkonkoma Long Island NY back in 2004. Since then, I have also studied at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. My dual major of Professional Music ( self directed major where I studied guitar, bass, piano, drum set, percussion, song writing and music business) and Music Production and Engineering.

I have played in professionally in several bands including my band Stealing Earth and the Ludmila Stefanikova Quintet touring Europe on electric guitar.

My Music Engineering degree has brought me to work in the studio and live venue settings. I am the former house sound engineer of the famous listening venue Lizard Lounge Cambridge, MA, working closely with resident artists, Club d'Elf, Dennis Brennan Band and MC Kabir. I've also had the pleasure of engineering in several studios including the studio of Susan Rogers who was Prince's sound engineer and one of my teachers. I have also engineered the band Kung Fu at Jungle Jam, Best Fest and Mike Love at Envision Festival in Costa Rica.

I specialize in Roots, Rock, Reggae, Afro-Cuban and R&B. I also can play funk, classical, jazz and slide guitar.

Whether you are just starting out, want to try a new style, want recording or song writing tips or just want to learn to have a zen guitar practice, I am looking forward to sharing my knowledge and experience!

Hey, you just picked up an incredible instrument! Let's get you started.

I have played guitar for 10 years and countless gigs, and I'm very willing to teach you all I know. I have a few shortcuts and tricks I want to share with you :)

I'd love to hear about what songs you would like to be able to play. Even more, I'd love to help you play them!

About David
Hi! My name is David.

I come from a big musical family with lots of siblings, so the house is never quiet. Someone is always humming, singing, tapping, playing an instrument, etc. That's the way my home has always been. We play mass every single week at ICS at 5:00pm.

I have been playing guitar for ten years now and have done more gigs than I can count. I would love to teach you how to play and few tricks I picked up along the way!

I'm a total fitness nerd. I'm exercise 6 times a week (training for a half marathon), a certified ACSM Exercise Physiologist, and previous Zumba instructor. I am not into gym-timidation or screaming while lifting weights. I stand 5'2" from the ground and inject positivity into everything I do :)

I'm studying for my Doctor of Physical Therapy so I can help people (especially musicians) with prevent
ing and resolving pain in their bodies so they can get back to doing what they love.
