Joel's music theory lessons are superb!
Rick
My first lesson went really well. I wanted to learn music theory as well as learn how to play.
Very knowledgeable and teaches in a way that is easy to understand.
I walked away from the first lesson with more than one 'ah-ha' moment and am excited to learn more.

My son just had his first lesson but he is already excited about what he is learning. Joel is very patient and connects well with his student. Looking forward to the next one!

Adam is a wonderful guitar instructor. He is very knowledgable and he is always calm, patient and very encouraging. He taught me a lot of ways to practice and enjoy music. Thank you Adam! I would highly recommend!
Kristin
I took acoustic guitar lessons with Adam and he was a wonderful teacher. I had little knowledge of the guitar and felt I developed my skills quickly. Adam was patient, nice and came up with fun exercises and song selections. Would highly recommend Adam as a teacher!
Julie
Adam’s superpowers as a guitar teacher are commitment and a calm demeanor. It was clear from my first lesson that Adam was singularly dedicated to my advancement even at times when my dedication wavered. I was able to successfully learn a Death Can for Cutie song that I had loved for years (I will follow you into the dark). Though i had taken lessons in the past, i felt i had the most chemistry with Adam’s thoughtful approach to teaching guitar. Our lessons were fun and laced with lighthearted humor. I moved to NYC and Adam was 100% committed to ensuring our lessons continued via Skype. Unfortunately the move was a big life change that refocused my priorities. I wish that Adam lived in NY so we could continue playing together!

"Awesome teacher!

Jeff is an awesome teacher! I decided to take lessons from him after hearing a friend play and finding out he took lessons from Jeff (my friend is an amazing guitarist). Not really knowing how to play guitar, at first I was a little nervous, but It was such a comfortable environment that I always looked forward to my next lesson. He has become even more a friend than a guitar teacher. He can teach you any type of music and will work with you. Without realizing it, I had progressed more than I could've imagined in a relatively short amount of time.

Even if you've never picked up a guitar, or have been playing for years, Jeff is the teacher you want."

"I've been learning with Eric for a year now and my playing has progressed ten-fold. Have been able to pick up jazz concepts which I never thought I would, as well as apply practical theory and scales to my playing which has opened up the fretboard.

The best part, though, has been writing my own songs and breaking them down with Eric to add/remove things that work or don't work. Now starting to record some ideas and workshop them further -- something I never thought I'd be doing! Can't recommend Eric highly enough. He's flexible, highly experienced and teaches in a relaxed environment."

5 Easy Songs for Kids to Play On Guitar

Are your kids looking for easy songs to play on guitar? Get them started with these great suggestions from guitar teacher Willy M.... That first guitar lesson is critical for establishing a love of playing in our students, but most of the time teachers approach the instrument as though we need to prepare the student for the worst. "It will be difficult... You have to put in a lot of practice... Your fingers will hurt, etc." These things only serve to discourage the student and the parent, who …
