I focus on the individual needs of each student, helping them craft a personal practice approach to meet their unique goals and aspirations. The wide-reaching diversity of my performance careers informs my teaching; I'm comfortable teaching classical guitar, jazz improvisation, finger style, folk music, electric guitar, sight-reading; all areas which have been the bread and butter of my 10+ year professional performing experience. I'm always excited to meet my students where they're at, be they first-time beginners or advanced players.

About Nate

I'm a professional musician and doctoral classical guitar student based out of New York City! I have degrees in guitar performance from the Yale School of Music (M.M, M.M.A '19, '20) and the University of North Carolina (B.M. '16), where I've studied classical & jazz guitar, early music, and genera

I knew Nate as a friend before signing up for a lesson, and was not surprised to learn he's an awesome insructor too. I hadn't picked up an instrument in my whole life, and assumed a lesson was already light years ahead of where I was, but Nate made me feel comfortable and gave me a manageable amount of building blocks to practice and build on. I never felt like a noob, and am more excited to play, or at least learn, because of it. He gave me an hour which flew by, and the price was incredibly reasonable. Would highly recommend, Nate's the man, give him a chance!

About Robert

It is my experience that no matter what kind of music you end up playing a solid classical piano background is invaluable. I was privately trained in classical piano from the ages 5 - 17 in Los Angeles, California. My teachers were Mary Brady, Mae Gilbert Reese and Jeane Weiss. I graduated from Har

Stop wasting your time - take Robert.

I only had the pleasure of taking piano lessons with Robert for two months since I got into Harvard and had to move to the East Coast, but I can confidently attest that he is a phenomenal teacher. To begin with, Robert brings to the table not only his classical training but also an open, creative, out-of-the-box approach. He is extremely knowledgeable and seasons lessons with fantastic facts about composers and pieces which makes everything a lot more interesting and memorable. lessons are versatile and designed to develop several key skills simultaneously. I never really played the piano before but after only two months with Robert I could read notes, develop my technique and actually play two beautiful pieces! If you are looking for a well-rounded, brilliant, cool teacher - search no more.

About Jeremy

I began playing guitar by ear around age ten. I learned rock songs from records for a few years, and then I began a more serious study of theory in high school. Over the next several years I alternated between pursuing my music degree and playing in bands around the midwest. In 2004, I transferred f

Aloha! I am a student from Hawaii! Wow, my words are not enough to express how awesome Jeremy is as a teacher. What a wonderful person he is, he is so friendly and patient. It is extremely difficult for me to learn anything but he make it super easy. It’s also really cool that he has an online option so I can learn anywhere. I must say, I am very proud of myself and how much I’ve accomplished through his teachings. I highly recommend Jeremy and you will not regret it! Amazing teacher and I am grateful.

Jenn was a fantastic instructor! I had always wanted to learn an instrument and when I was gifted a ukulele I immediately started looking for a teacher. She was patient and kind with instruction. She gave me plenty of music sheet to practice our weekly songs which I could use as homework throughout the week. She also went over strengthening and dexterity exercises and fingerpicking exercises. I had to end our lesson due to schedule constraints at work but I know she also teaches guitar and I hope to work with her to learn this instrument in the future!

Private Guitar Teacher

Hi there. I'm Andrew. I have been teaching for about 10 years now and it has become one of the things I truly love to do. When I am not writing, reading, gigging, touring, or recording, I love to teach people the things that have made my life so colorful.

With a little push in the right direction, you can become an active participant in the things you love. No more watching from the sidelines. Become the musician, writer, speaker, reader that you have always wanted to be. It's never too late! Trying something new or asking for help can be intimidating, but I am happy to show you that the rewards far exceed the costs. Trust me, I speak from experience. I've taught personalized lessons for nearly 10 years now without a single complaint. At this point in my musical career, the majority of my experience and attitude has come from being "in the field". I've played everything from small dive bars to music festivals with crowds of thousands and been on tour and lived the whole life more ...

About Andrew

Music is my life. As cheesy as that phrase goes, for me, it holds true. Everything I do and have been doing has been geared towards music. I've been in one working/gigging band or other without break for the past 10 years. I began intensely learning to play guitar at the age of 9 and have not stopp

He has musical ability and a real talent for teaching. He has taken someone like me with iron hands and helped me make this more than 10 year journey a learning experience that has opened thought pathways experiences. I am so glad that I found Ahmad and the guitar -- I started when I was already past 50 - so it is never too late to start to learn."

"Hi. I left a prior review under acoustic guitar. Jeff teaches basically anything with strings and frets: Acoustic and Electric guitar and bass, in Rock, pop, Jazz, blues - you name it. Throw in Mandolin and Ukulele. I started playing guitar over 50 years ago - self taught with years of inactivity. When I retired 3 years ago or so my wife set me up for guitar lessons from Take Lessons, which led to Jeff. He was close by in Pasadena. He started with my flimsy knowledge of a few chords and moved along as I learned. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of all sorts of music, and can lead you down whatever path you chose. I started with basic rhythm guitar, classic rock, R & B, and at this point starting to work on the blues. I look forward to my weekly meetings with Jeff and highly recommend him."

"For the past few years, I have learned a lot on how to play music using a guitar. Ms.Esther helped me realize what I needed to focus on and what I was great at. Essentially, she helped me figure out my limitations with regards to my musical knowledge and skill which is great because it made me aware of what I needed to improve my skills. Ms. Esther is excellent in teaching; always making sure to help her students truly understand music and its value. I could not have asked for a better teacher. Thank you !"

He gives me the will to learn this guitar, for it is very hard for me. if you dont know a thing about music, or you just want a great guy teaching you good music, Rick is the one for you.

"He's the best. Really easy going and nice guy. His wife even makes cookies for each lesson. As a beginner, Jim has streamlined and accelerated my learning ten fold since self teaching myself online. For references he gives you all the materials you need such as the music sheets he makes to form a lesson. They're very concise and easy to follow. I have bar chord sheet he made that's by far the best reference for those chords that I've seen.
It's really a fun experience and he takes joy in helping his students learn. Highly recommended."

The Surprising Benefit of Learning Guitar Without Sheet Music
