Private Classical Guitar Teacher

For classical 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!!!

Lessons with David were very inspiring and so much fun. They were well planned, organized and productive. David also was very flexible and accommodating with scheduling the lessons.

The technique I teach is applicable to classical, acoustic and electric guitar. It is based on finding the most relaxed position for the entire body, and ultimately the hands and fingers. It's the most fun way to play!

About Stephen

I have been playing music on the violin since the age of 7, composing since I was 14, and playing and performing on the guitar since I was 18. I've written a lot of music, and this past spring had works performed in Virginia and two in Manhattan. I have taught music for over 15 years, in college

Hello!,

Our lessons will be relaxed and fun. I take pride in tailoring my curriculum to the needs and goals of each individual student- This helps me make sure that you are learning at a pace that feels comfortable for you, yet challenging.

We will work together to develop both your musicianship and creativity. I am a firm believer in music being a healing and mind-opening practice. One of my primary goals while teaching is to give my students an outlet to express themselves in a healthy and meaningful way. Let's get started!

Topics we can focus on together:
- Theory
- Improvisation
- Strumming/finger-picking patterns
- How to sing and play at the same time
- Songwriting/Recording techniques
- Lyric Writing
- Stage Presence
- Exploring different musical genres

Guy's a legend and he's not even 30 I don't think. You will love learning to play with Spencer!!!!!
Miguel Tomas
I am taking Spencer's advanced course at the moment, and I gotta say... This guy is just prodigious.
He's really personable, so in our first lessons, I learned that he taught himself to play by ear, like many of the greats.
What is really helping me play better, is something he calls the art of transformation; something he learned from listening to rare vinyl records nearly 100 years old.
Not only will you get better at guitar, but if you ask Spencer, you will learn many interesting facts about music and it's evolution.

Matt is a great conversationalist and an amazing musician but most importantly, he is a skilled instructor. Matt can teach performance and theory. He listens to your needs, assesses your skill level and if you let him, he will mold you into a great musician too. After 40 years of playing around with my guitar, Matt has opened my eyes and is teaching me to play the guitar. Todd R.

"I have been working with Brendon for about 2 years now. He is not only incredibly knowledgeable about all aspects of guitar (composition, scales, classical pieces, finger-strengthening exercises, etc.), he is also an incredibly patient and dedicated instructor who really listens to the student's needs and helps fill them. His repertoire of songs, exercises, and general guitar knowledge have helped me understand the instrument in a multitude of different ways. I have had many guitar instructors before, but never someone who was so incredibly flexible and patient and willing to help when it comes to someone who has a busy schedule who is still interested in learning a complex instrument. He's definitely the best instructor I've ever had, and I look forward to continuing to work with him for a long time."

"I love taking lessons with Raymond! I have been studying classical guitar with him for about three years, and look forward to my lessons more now than when I started them. I have some musical background, but always felt stuck when taking instrumental lessons from other instructors, wondering if I would ever be able to work hard enough to truly learn an instrument well. Raymond's expertise, his kindness, sense of humor, and holistic teaching style--that reaches me on my level, rather than just telling me what to do--really shows the results of great instruction. Plus, some of Raymond's methods for learning guitar apply to other areas in life and help me work through other "challenges"! Thank you for inspiring me, Raymond!"

"I’m pretty obsessed with Joey. He’s been so helpful and instrumental (ha!) throughout this process, from helping me pick out my guitar to finding extra practice worksheets to send to me outside of our lessons. He is unnaturally patient (seriously, so patient), I don’t feel pressured during our sessions and in fact, I look forward to our time practicing and playing together. Joey is always ready for my many questions, (I know now what a capo is) and has methodical answers that demonstrate his comprehensive knowledge in music theory and playing classical/electrical guitar. He is truly very generous and kind, very supportive and encouraging, which I am sure is already evident from the many positive reviews from students and parents. I am sure he is an amazing mentor to his young students as he is super sweet to his adults who sound like they’re plucking chickens :)
My only regret is not finding Joey sooner. Taking guitar lessons was a huge step for me, one 20 years in the making, and I’m super thankful to have him as my teacher."

4 Essential Classic Rock Guitar Solos That Will Make You a Better Player

Learning to play other people's guitar solos is a great way to begin learning to write your own! Guitar teacher Nils B. shares his tips to learning four classic rock solos so you can develop your technique... An essential part of every musician's development is to imitate those who have already mastered their instrument. After settling on a song, give it a couple of close listens (preferably on headphones or a decent stereo), pick up a good transcription, then learn the rhythm parts, while …
