Private Guitar Teacher

My students range from children (8+ up) to adults to senior citizens. Whether you are brand new to playing the guitar or just want to brush up on the basics, you have found the right place. My objective is simple: Let's have fun!

I am flexible in my teaching style. If you want a more formal approach, I can teach you how to read music and play melodies & chords of some of your favorite songs. If formal is not your thing and you just want to learn to improvise, we can go there also.

I can definitely teach any serious student how to play well. I can get you ready to play in a band and perform live. Classic Rock, Blues and Jazz are my specialties. I've been teaching and performing these styles nationally for over 30 years. If you really want to learn how to play well, I'm your teacher. We'll definitely have fun and the more you practice, the more fun you'll have. And if you just want to learn a few chords and a few tunes to strum, we can do that too. You pick, guitar hero or just a fun hobby. Anyone can learn to play and have fun with the way I teach.

I've been teaching and playing professionally for over 30 years. I take great care to make sure each student gets what they need to really enjoy music on the guitar. Each student has different musical styles they like and each has different abilities. I work with each student to focus on his or her

Tom is an excellent music teacher. He has been teaching our granddaughter classical guitar and we have been very pleased. I taught instrumental and vocal music in the public schools. I also taught strings at the Arts School .
He is well educated in the music field and has had so much performing experience so he has a very well rounded background, I think you would be very pleased
to study with Tom.

I have had a terrific experience working with Tom. Playing guitar for nearly 20 years, I was looking for advanced instruction and coaching. Focusing specifically on Jazz, Tom has helped me elevate my playing ability and understanding of the art form. Tom is a professional musician that has an ability to connect with his students of all ages and levels. I highly recommend working with Tom.

Fantastic first lesson, really looking forward to learning more. George is a great guy and great teacher, I feel like I'm in great hands.
Sam J Ottobre
First lesson was impressive. George is clearly fluent in the language of music. He was able to identify problems with my singing (which were not exactly what I thought they were)and give me solutions for them. He explained this to me in terms I understood. The hour with him was the most targeted constructive time I’ve had in my journey to become a singer.For lesson one, you can’t ask for more than that.

George is a personable, knowledgeable, and gifted teacher. He can tailor the lessons to fit anyone's needs.

I believe in teaching the fundamentals and appreciation of music to beginner students and continuing with advanced students in complex music theory concepts for composing, improvising, and songwriting. I have written a music theory book called eVirtuoso - Music Theory Essentials. Visit www.eVirtuoso.com for details.

My son has learned so much working with Andy. I knew he was the right teacher when I saw that my son was practicing without any reminders!
Highly recommended!
Jake A.
Andy is one of the best instructors I've ever had. We met through LinkedIn, as I was looking for artistic development for my music. He came up with a six-month-long plan after our first lesson. Needless to say I was very impressed.

He also has a great ability to explain and make relevant some obscure concepts. Music theory concepts that had evaded my understanding for years were made simple as 2+2.

I highly recommend Andy for anyone looking to further their artistic development!

My lesson plans are designed to be musical and fun. I want my students to understand the language of the music by studying their favorite bands and understanding the theory behind it. I have a strategy for everyone starting from beginner, intermediate, to advanced. I remember picking up a guitar for the first time and what a struggle it was to play my favorite songs. There is a method for achieving these goals and it is different for everyone. The one thing that will allow you to succeed is having a desire to learn and a passion for music. If you have those two things then I can direct you to the right path to achieve your musical goals!

My 10 year old beginner has been taking lessons from Mr. Ettling for a couple of months. We are always amazed at the progress he makes each week. Mr. Ettling great at assessing where a child's skills are, and how much more progress to ask for between lessons. He listens well to my son's interests also. We are very happy!

Steve does an amazing job of simplifying the guitar and making it a practical learning experience no matter what your skill level is! Great guitar player and teacher.

"Before the lesson today I was having anxiety and performance issues, and Tim really encouraged me and cut right through the problem. He knew exactly how to handle it without making me feel inferior and giving me the confidence to overcome it. Tim is very casual and at the same time professional bringing you to a place of relaxation and enjoying the journey, not just the destination. I have been playing for many years but still learning the basics that I never learned, and although it could be frustrating to go back, he has made it rewarding and simple."
