My first lesson was a lot of fun! Peter is great at helping you feel at ease and comfortable. I was extremely nervous and he was great with making me feel like I was right at home with a friend! I also appreciate that he is not rigid in his teaching techniques or format. He caters your lesson to what your learning desires are and is very good at recognizing your skill level (or lack of 😁). I also appreciate how encouraging he is. I’m super excited to continue on my Saxophone journey!
Owen
My child really enjoyed his first lesson with peter. Peter is a very talented musician and he made the lesson fun! My child seemed to learn a lot from just one lesson with peter and he enjoys practicing what he learned at home.
John G.
Peter is a great teacher. He finds what your level is and goes from there. Peter finds what kind of style of learning best fits you.
For me, when Peter is playing the drums or Piano after he has given me the structures/scales makes it very easy to learn. Very patient and encouraging. Ask yourself- Why aren’t YOU taking lessons with Peter?

Learning music can be overwhelming but Jesse made the process equal parts exciting, artistic, and intellectual. He is able to explain concepts better than any music teacher I have ever had (and I have tried many). He was able to meet me where I was at, inspire me when I was struggling and encourage me when I was excelling. I look forward to my lesson with Jesse every week and he has guided me from being a hopeful, dejected fangirl to being a confident, well-rounded musician.
Jeremy
I'm so happy with how fast I have advanced learning to play. What I like the most is that I have been learning chord theory, technique, practice methods, and music theory, all at the same time. Jesse makes it easy to assimilate all this information by gauging your progress and giving you only the information you need to succeed.
Haley
I started learning how to play the guitar 3 years ago and I hit a plateau with my playing. Finally signed up to take lessons and I’ve been studying with Jesse for 7 months now and made more progress during this time than I had in the first 2.5 years of playing! He is always prompt, professional, and does a fantastic job teaching online (which can be very challenging for problem-solving). He is also a very caring teacher and wants his students to get what they want out of lessons. Highly recommend him as a teacher!

Online Guitar Teacher

I teach all popular music styles including Blues, Rock, Jazz, Country, Bluegrass, Latin American Styles. I can teach you to read by notes and/or by chords based on your preferences and styles you choose to pursue. I like to give a solid foundation to all beginners learning to read music and basic music theory and as they progress I will concentrate more on elements that are more important for the style you prefer. I am flexible in my approach as I know the most important ingredient for a student's success in music is for the student to be motivated to play more by enjoying the lesson and the practice time. I'll work with you to make it learning fun!

About Ricardo

I have been a professional musician and teacher all my adult life. Music is my passion and has always been how I make a living. I teach piano/keyboards, guitar, voice, bass and ukulele. I studied classical piano at SUNY at Buffalo and I initially learned to play guitar and singing on my own. Years

Steven is an extremely well versed and educated guitar teacher. Both in person and online, Steven managed to meet the interests and push the knowledge of music notation no matter what style. My son became a confident player in a short amount of time due to Steven’s vast knowledge and experience. As a 20+ year schoolteacher myself, I really appreciate his student connection and teaching style. An all over excellent experience.

He starts with your big picture goals and breaks them down into actionable steps that you can take feeling like it's going somewhere. This makes for way more efficient and exciting practice sessions. If you don't know exactly where you want to go with your playing, Trevor will help you find that as well."

"I would recommend Jimmy to anyone that is serious about learning guitar or music theory. With his strategic approach to teaching the material, you will not only understand music, but you will know how to create your own right on the spot. His lessons are very knowledgeable and most of all fun. He is a patient teacher and will guide you on the correct path you so can become the greatest musician in a very short time. I have been training with him for little over a year and my skills already surpassed others that have been for multiple years. Teachers like Jimmy are rare and very hard to find. If you are serious about music then you should train with Jimmy. See the results faster than you ever thought were possible."
