Private Guitar Teacher

I've been teaching guitar almost my entire adult life. Started in 1978 in my parents house and after that a couple of music stores. I'm now teaching in my home studio.

My teaching goals and curriculum will depend on the ability of the student and their knowledge of the instrument. It doesn't matter if they are at the beginner, intermediate or advance level, I have experience teaching all levels.

Most students want to learn how to play songs. I focus a great deal on learning how to use the proper technique to play all the chords needed to play the songs they would like to learn. If you want to learn how to read music and or play lead guitar I can teach that too.
I'm a professional guitarist and singer. I've been performing in bands none stop for over 30 years and I'm still performing on weekends with my two bands'. I teach practical guitar lessons that can be applied to building up for performance with a band or as a solo artist.
I'm also a song writer and piano player. ...

About Keith

I've found Keith to be professional, good communicator and a great teacher for our 8 year old. He has patience and a real love for music and it shows. He is our first instructor so I don't have anything to compare him with but I do know people and feel great working with him. I forgot to mention, he has a little studio in his basement perfect for lessons.
I hope this helps anyone . Thx.

Private Guitar Teacher

Do you want to unlock the mysteries of the guitar fretboard? Learn to play songs, improvise for the first time or explore new ideas for improvisation, study rhythmic grooves and learn to keep and feel the beat. Guitar can be a vehicle for your souls' deepest expression and also a form of practicing meditation. I began teaching before I attended Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. After Berklee, I performed in several bands, toured Europe and worked as a sound engineer for both live and studio settings including several festivals in Costa Rica.. I can help guide you with creating your own sound recordings if desired. Whether you are just getting started or an experienced guitarist looking for some unique perspective I'd love to help you find a new groove! My favorite styles to play are rock, reggae, R&B and the blues but I also play funk, jazz and classical guitar. Drop me a line today!

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 instrum

Please Read : OVERVIEW just below this, Thank you.

The Best way to achieve being a Great Guitar Player is buy Studying Music Theory, Learning Proper Technique and form on the Guitar. Anyone can just learn Chords or Songs buy just Practicing, even though you may be wrong and not know why. But to be Trained and develop the Correct way is 100% Faster, and help to eliminate any obstacles that you would encounter otherwise. You also would have a complete understanding of what you're doing, How it all works, and why.

Jimmy is great, super down to earth. Went in with zero knowledge and am astonished at the difference in such a short time.

Jimmy does a great job teaching you physical elements of singing and really helped me understand what my body is doing when singing.

Awesome guy, can't say much else!
Nick W.
James does a great job of explaining what I need to do for my voice and how to get there with it. Breaking it down step by step. As someone who never had a voice lesson before hand, I can recommend him as a teacher.
Chris
Jimmy is fantastic. The foundations he helps to build in theory and technique are instrumental (heh) in becoming proficient with the guitar. He's also super accessible and responsive.

Justin
I went through 4 voice teachers here in NYC before settling on Mary - been taking vocal training with her for about a year and half now and it's been worth every penny.

Mary is an excellent communicator, with a great sense for analogies and concrete descriptions for abstract concepts (esp crucial for things like singing). She's a gifted vocalist, having been classically trained with an Opera and Jazz background, but more than that - she has the ability to enhance someone else's sense of style and natural voice. She is of course also an amazing human all around, with a great attitude, style, and general "lust for life." Highly recommend Mary as a vocal coach
Jon
My decades long musical history was moving toward something new - singer-songwriter-guitar performer. I needed help. Mary is shockingly amazing in all three, which says nothing for her piano and tech skills, which says nothing for her really beautiful ear and professional easy demeanor ... I can't recommend her enough. She has transformed a part of my musical world into something, for which I am both eternally grateful and waiting for my next lesson.
jon R.
I began taking lessons with Mary after I heard her sing. Besides having a terrific voice I really love how effortless she makes singing look. I've been taking lessons with her for about a month and she's been helping me connect the dots. I appreciate her method. She works with me to build my voice and doesn't push a style or direction. Her descriptions give me directions on what to think and how to feel when I sing. I look forward to the coming months!

My 7 year old son has been taking online lessons with Ryan for over a year now. Ryan is absolutely the most patient and knowledgeable instructor we could have ever hoped for. He really gets his students and their needs. I wasn't sure how virtual lessons would go for my young son, but honestly it has been awesome! I can't say enough good things about Ryan and his teaching style!

"Ahmad is very professional in his approach, he helps you evaluate the course and also tell him more about your goals. I had no knowledge of music at all and He did a god job in giving me some basic music theory crash course along with my daily practice sessions. He tailors the course as per your routine. its never one lesson fit all for him, he will gauge your level of expertise, your short and long term guitar goals(beginner, advanced etc) and then create a custom lesson for you. I really enjoyed and made good progress in a month's time. Thanks Ahmad!"

"Francesca is a teacher's teacher. (And, yes, I'm a teacher.) ;-) I am truly impressed with how she communicates with and engages my son. He started guitar lessons in February--now, a few months later, he is playing every day and learning new techniques at every lesson. She has also taught him how to teach himself--to explore and go beyond the hour a week they have together. He loves it. I never have to remind him to practice. He even had the confidence for play for some visiting family members last week. Even though Francesca is an extremely busy musician, performer, and teacher, when she is giving a lesson, she is completely focused on that learner and their needs. I am grateful we found her. <3 Francesca!"

"Ahmad is an excellent guitar teacher. I have been taking lessons from Ahmad at his studio for several months now and I'm continually impressed with Ahmad and very pleased with my progress on the guitar.

Ahmad has a relaxed and friendly attitude, but it's clear that he's exceptionally good at his trade. He has years of experience and teaching materials on hand, and I enjoy that Ahmad customizes what he teaches to each student's skill level and goals. He has developed a very effective teaching method that works well for me. I've had plenty of music education previously in my life and Ahmad quickly recognized that we could move quickly over the basics of reading music, rhythm notation, etc. and he's always prepared with an exercise or two for me to take home and practice to expand my skills further.

I found Ahmad online and called him and he was very professional and courteous leading up to our first appointment. He's got his teaching down to a science and Ahmad is very efficient with his administrative matters. I'm grateful for this because it leaves a lot more time for the guitar lesson itself.

Ahmad charges a reasonable fee for his service and I'm looking forward to learning from Ahmad for a long time to come."
