Hi, My name is Don and have been teaching guitar for many years. Currently I teach at my home studio in Lake Katrine, N.Y. From 2015 - 2017 I taught at the New York School of Music in Walden, N.Y. From 2003 -early 2015 I was a staff instructor at Imperial Guitar and Soundworks of Newburgh,
A friend of mine said she had taken lessons from a Don DeBold for about 5 years before going off to college and highly recommended him.
I've now been taking lessons from Don for almost 2 years and having a blast ! I've learned how to play along with most of my favorite songs (mainly Blues and Rock) and now I'm learning to play Solo Guitar that needs no accompaniment !
Unlike my first teacher, during many lessons Don barely plays or even has his Strat on his lap because he's busy concentrating on what I'm doing !
He's a stickler yet lots of fun at the same time> I super recommend him as a Guitar and Music Teacher !!! Aneiah J.

I began studying music theory in high school, and have taken several semesters of college-level music theory. To complement and support my music theory and ear training knowledge, I have studied piano at the intermediate level. Music theory will help you appreciate, interpret, and enjoy music - I can't imagine not knowing what I know about music theory, and I want you to feel the same way. Here are materials I can use in music theory lessons:
- The Musician's Guide to Theory and Analysis (Clendinning and Marvin)
- The Musician's Guide to Theory and Analysis workbook (Clendinning and Marvin)
- The Musician's Guide to Aural Skills Sight-Singing book (Murphy, Phillips, Marvin, Clendinning)
- Materials and Techniques of Post-Tonal Music (Kostka and Santa)
- Grand piano (in my College Studio and can be used online)
- Yamaha electric piano (in my Home Studio and can be used online)

For blues 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 ...

Families, you know how it is - the ability to pinch a penny until it screams is simply a compulsory parenting skill for big-city living. Being budget-conscious and still allowing your kids to experience all the fantastic cultural things New York City has to offer is certainly one to test this skill!
