Rina transformed a septuagenarn with very little vocal experience into a much more confident and capable vocalist...in only five 1hr lessons. I plan to continue with Rina because learning with her is fun and although I have learned a lot I want to absorb more of what she is capable of teaching me.

I learned a lot in my first lesson with Brian. He clearly knows the guitar inside and out. The pace was on the faster side, but he answered all my questions about technique and theory. Beyond what I wanted to focus on (technique), he's laying a solid foundation for theory so that I don't have go rely on the capo or online tabs as much. He also gave me useful scale exercises to build up finger independence and articulation. So far so good.

Brian was a great teacher! He I was well prepared and always on time. He was patient with me not remembering all the notes and simply said “it takes time” or “you’ll get it next time”.
Brianl loves music and shares that love in every lesson and in his overall teaching approach.

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I don't make the guitar lessons unique - you do! Every student is different, has a different stance, a different style, prefers a certain set of strings, has a way of holding the guitar that's going to work for them and only them. I realize there's artistry in the way we learn, and I make myself a mold for everyone's unique inner voice. I can craft lessons on the fly, going with the flow of where my student's energy is going. I know the ways you can deviate from standard norms of playing and the places where technique actually does matter. I give you the tools where you're in control, in the drivers seat from the start.

About Pamela

I tour as a singer-songwriter, having 20 years of experience playing guitar, saxophone, and trumpet - formerly trained through Vassar College. I specialize in beginners because I learn the most from them. Hey! My name is Pam and listen, we call them "lessons" but I hardly keep them dull - you'll ha

You will learn to play melodies: Mary Had A little lamb, Ode to Joy, etc. as well as chords to rhythm. If you have songs you wish to learn we can do that and if you want to learn to play guitar and sing that is possible. Any pop songs on the radio we can learn and have you playing for your friends.

About Andrew

I have loved music since I was a child. I began playing clarinet when I was 11 years old and slowly picked up new instruments like the saxophone, harmonica, guitar, ukulele, flutes, whistles, kazoo, and others. I enjoy any style of music and have a desire to learn as many instruments as possible.

Simply put, Andrew is the best. His genuine love and passion for all-things music was obvious the first day we met him. He is great with kids. He is flexible yet reliable. We love the fact that he tailors his lessons, homework, and incentives to the needs and interests of each individual student. We are confident that we could not find a better guitar instructor for our daughter.

I've taken lessons before and have always become disappointed because there was never any structure to the lessons and theory was treated as secondary. I wanted to really delve into theory because that is the knowledge needed to have no limits. Finally, I found Jimmy. He is a true teacher. Jimmy makes sure he teaches you the theory behind what you are doing. I have been playing for over ten years and was not progressing. After just a few lessons with him, I am starting to truly see the fretboard. I am finally excited again!

I'm quite an experienced singer. I've been seen in a cappella groups and bands and solo for many years however recently I've had trouble reaching my higher range and difficulty with falsetto. James has helped me to figure out the issue and I'm working on proper breath support and other issues I was having. My hope is to continue singing for the rest of my life and James has given me proper approach for vocal longevity.

Kept missing class without any heads up so I had to just wait around and hope he'll show up, ignored my calls and messages to reschedule, so I had to just get a refund from TakeLessons. As a teacher he is good, but very unprofessional behavior in terms of accountability and respect for students' time.

"Alex is incredibly knowledgeable and great with students off every age group! I took lessons from him for five years and my only regrets were not having more time to practice so I could get more out of my lesson times.
During lessons we worked on sight reading, ear training, memorizing chords and scales, different picking and strumming patterns, theory lessons, and anything else that I discovered and wanted to try."
