About Jonathan
I started my musical education in a children'€™s choir at age 6.
When I turned 8 years old, I began piano lessons. I started violin
at 9 and trombone at 10. After studying numerous instruments I am now proficient on the piano, electric/acoustic bass, and guitar. Having completed my tour of duty in the U.S. Army, I am currently on the Dean'€™s list as a music/audio production major, and plan to continue my music education until I earn at least a masters in performance and composition. I started my teaching career at Milestones in Music, a local studio, as an independent contractor, and was able to gain valuable experience, and through my membership in the National Association for Music Education(NAfME) I was able to fine tune my curriculum. I am a former student member of the Grammy U Recording Academy, and have had opportunities to
work with, and learn from a lot of different musicians. (The Recording Academy is the organization that created the most prestigious
award in music, the Grammy). I am the band leader at my church Montco Bible Fellowship. I have experience as an audio tech in the studio and for a live stage, and have consulted for organizations looking to setup a sound system/studio. I enjoy recording my own music in my home studio, and learning to play new instruments. I hope to pass my love for music to the next generation!

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very laid back instructor... as you will find out! I understand that not everyone learns at the same rate; however, I am a perfectionist and don't allow students to advance until they have learned a particular skill. I would rather a student take forever to learn a song, and practice it with good technique, than be able to play it right away with poor form and posture! I reinforce the value of working toward goals and celebrate with students when they reach them.  I understand that every student has different interests and reasons for wanting to learn an instrument... I try to focus on the areas that are of interest to the student, because a student who is enjoying themself will excel.  This does not mean that the subjects and skills that are not of interest will not be taught, because I also believe in being a well-rounded musician. I teach both jazz (theory/improvisation) and classical (composed) music.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My studio is currently not optimal for teaching... I hope to change this soon!!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide lesson books and other learning materials, but expect to be reimbursed. I expect the student to have their own instrument/equipment. Piano students are required to have a piano or a keyboard with 88 weighted keys (hammer-action), a piano bench and a pedal. Guitar/bass students must have an acoustic/electric guitar/bass with a strap or footstool, pick, and cable and amplifier if applicable! Digital audio students must have their own computer, Digital Audio workstation (software), digital audio interface, speakers/headphones and midi controller. ALL STUDENTS MUST PROVIDE A NOTEBOOK (college rule or staff)!!

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical and jazz piano! I am more than proficient at most production software including: reason, fl studio, ableton live... and other editing software such as sony sound forge, audacity, etc...

Lessons are specifically tailored to each student based on ability level, learning style, and goals. Younger children will focus more on technique and fun, but in every lesson it is my goal for my students to grow their own musical sensibilities. Above all, I love sharing with my students the joy that playing the guitar can add to their lives.

About Kevin
Every student deserves a teacher that is attentive, committed and above all highly competent. I can provide this to students of all ages. Younger students will be given the freedom to explore the instrument and music as they progress. Because of the many necessities of life, I recommend specific goals for adult students.

I love sharing the joy of music with my students, and would love to help you or your son/daughter find the music within.

***Background***
My initial studies were in jazz and other electric styles, and I performed in a number of varied ensembles. I graduated with a Master's degree from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. My main focus these days is classical music. I have performed in masterclasses with Manuel Barrueco, Denis Azabagic, and Dominic Frasca.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring blank staff
paper and other paper materials (music, exercises) to each lesson, as well as my guitar. I will bring a 1/4" cable for electric students. I expect students to bring their instrument and any accessories necessary. A music stand is required.

*** Specialties ***
My primary performing instrument is classical guitar, and I am well-versed in the literature. I love teaching jazz, rock, folk, or any other kind of music on the guitar.

Morrisville, PA

View Full Profile

The guitar is my primary instrument, and I've been playing for close to 20 years now. I've studied with some incredible teachers (Tomo Fujita, Pat Martino, Pat Metheny, Dave Fiuzcynski, Don Glanden, Kevin Hanson) who have taught some incredible students (like John Mayer, Eric Krasno, Kurt Rosenwinkel, and B.B. King), and I aim to pass down that same valuable information to my students. I teach all areas of guitar and I specialize in jazz and blues. As a student, I experienced several different music education curriculums, and I'm highly focused on adapting my teaching style to best suit each individual student. Unlike a lot of private teachers and music stores, I teach the essentials of whatever route students want to take, whether it be intense studying and preparation for music school auditions or just learning the basics and being able to play your favorite songs. If you have any questions about anything at all, feel free to get in touch with me.

About Pete
My name is Pete. I've been playing guitar for over 18 years. In 2011 I graduated from the Berklee College of Music in Boston with a degree in Professional Music. There, I spent several semesters studying with Tomo Fujita (former teacher of John Mayer and Eric Krasno). I've also been lucky enough to study with some incredible guitarists like Pat Martino, Pat Metheny, Jonathan Kreisberg, Jack Pezanelli, and Gilad Hekselman. Stevie Ray Vaughan, Wes Montgomery, Dave Matthews, and Jimi Hendrix are responsible for inspiring me to play guitar and I specialize in teaching blues and jazz guitar, bass, ukulele, and piano. I firmly believe that every serious musician should study ear training and music theory and I incorporate these areas in my lessons as long as the student wants to study this way. I've performed with a bunch of great artists in t
he Boston and Philadelphia area.
In 2011, I successfully obtained my master's degree in Jazz Studies from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. The master's program was an intense submersion in music performance that shaped me into the musician that I am today. I was lucky to study with Don Glanden, Mike Kennedy, and Kevin Hanson.
I am also well versed in computer recording software and DAWs. I teach students how to use software programs such as Logic and Reason as well as notation software like Sibelius and Finale. With some basic training in these programs, I can teach a student how to effectively record and produce professional quality recordings so that a student can write, record, and produce their own music.

*** Lesson Details ***
Because I've studied with some legendary teachers who have taught some legendary students (like John Mayer), I'm able to pass on to my students the same knowledge that these incredible teachers passed on to me. I guarantee that I will be unlike any guitar teacher that you've had before. Along with instrumental training, I offer extensive lessons in music theory and ear training. My family is full of educators and I've experienced the teacher-student relationship from a young age. I am fully committed to developing lesson plans based on the route that a student wants to take, whether it's just learning the basics and playing along to your favorite songs or engaging in serious study and preparing for college auditions. I am available to teach at any location within the Philadelphia area.

*** Stylistic Focus ***
I specialize in jazz and blues. At Berklee, I was able to take instrumental labs that spent an entire semester focusing on the playing style of certain guitarists. I've taken the Wes Montgomery lab, the Pat Martino lab, the Jimi Hendrix lab, the John Scofield lab, and the Stevie Ray Vaughan lab.

Ryan takes his time and tailors my lessons specifically to my level and to the type of music I’d like to play. He covers everything from the basics – like the proper way to hold the pick – to more advanced teachings like music theory. Ryan is flexible, patient, easy going, and he consistently teaches at a pace that I’m comfortable with. He provides take-home practice after every lesson and always has helpful suggestions any time I have questions. What I find incredibly helpful is that at the end of the lesson Ryan will run through the take-home practice on his guitar and let me record it on my phone so it’s easier for me to remember. When I’m ready to practice the next day I just pull up his notes and the video and I’m ready to go!

It’s obvious that Ryan has a passion for music, and it shows in his lessons. I would easily give him my highest recommendation.

Profile_97404_pi_DSC06386
Philadelphia, PA
View Full Profile

I have spent the past 12 years of my life dedicated to the guitar. While obtaining my Bachelor's degree in Guitar performance at Oberlin Conservatory I was employed by the conservatory's secondary lessons department. This studio featured a diverse mix of college students, adults, and children. In addition I am Suzuki method certified and I was a summer instructor at the Amherst School of Guitar in Buffalo, NY. I have experience working with children from as young as 5 to as old as 65.

About Lenny
Studying music has tremendous benefits including: discipline, self confidence, problem solving, and stronger connections in the brain! Understanding music can give you new perspectives on how to look at the world. If you have felt the power of music then you owe it to yourself to understand and harness what is already a part of you. OWN IT!

While studying with me we will work on many facets of music including technique, sight reading, critical listening, music theory, improvisation, and how to apply these skills to a piece of music to truly express yourself. My goal is to instill a deep understanding of music to my students while letting their individual sensibilities show.

STYLES: I can teach all styles of American music (i.e Rock, Blues, Country, Jazz, R&B etc.) as well as classical and fingerstyle.
I have a degree in classical
guitar and have performed with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra as well as done concerts in the USA, Italy, and the UK.
I have experience playing in many different bands in many styles including: Rock, Reggae, African, Blues, and Jazz groups.

SUZUKI METHOD: I am trained and certified in the Suzuki Guitar Method and spent 3 years teaching Suzuki in studio with children as young as 5. This involves a significant parent-teacher-student commitment and regularly yields impressive results.

ON TALENT: I agree with Shin-ichi Suzuki that talent is irrelevant and a myth. I believe that the potential of all my students are the same but they come to me with various starting skills levels and all learn at a very different pace. I believe that the myth of “talent” really just means that the individual has had a long exposure to music. This is why I emphasize critical listening in my lessons. If you have a large knowledge of music and sounds in your head it makes it easier to make connections and better assess your ideas.

Lenny was my daughter's first instructor for guitar, she had two years of piano - she was not as motivated with the piano instructor as with Lenny. He took his time with any questions she had, he was totally patient with her, he really has a understanding of music and is able to explain it in a way with minimal if no confusion. No matter what kind of day he may have had at school he remained absolutely consistent from week to week with how he taught during the lesson. His focus was where it should be, even when other family members needed to take my daughter he was undaunted yet caring. I would highly recommend this young man hands down. I told him personally through emails how thankful and blessed we were with him as a teacher. I have other children, older, and I have had them through various teachers with various instruments and Lenny is definitely a 5-Star.

No matter your age or your perspective on music, I promise I can relate to you and get you learning the things you want to learn in a way that will make sense to you as an individual. I'm a lifelong musician and songwriter, and I'd love to get you started on a lasting relationship with your guitar, bass, piano, and the all-encompassing magic of music. Among many other things, I'd love to deliver to you: a strong foundation in music theory and technique, a customizable plan to target specific objectives that you may want to achieve, and opportunities to create and record music in my home studio. Whether you see yourself developing your musical sense as a cool talent on the side or something larger and more intense, let's get you nurturing that passion for music, truly thinking like a musician, and picking up very valuable skills.

About Ken
I'll want to know what brought you here, so let me first tell you what brought me...

Since my years as a wide-eyed teenager I've been writing, performing, and recording a variety of types of music. I'd enjoyed conventional lessons as a younger child, but music didn't all really click for me until I started exploring other instruments on my own, playing the music I really wanted to play, and figuring out how to create my own music.

That's great, you may say, but what about teaching music? Well, it starts with the fact that I ended up having to teach myself. The fundamentals I'd learned as a child gave me a nice skill in my back pocket. And that could have been enjoyable enough on its own - it certainly is for plenty of people who want to learn an instrument.

But in retrospect, I could have had a more fulfilling experience had my i
nstructors really tapped into something beyond the mechanics of an instrument. While I could correctly play the notes written on a sheet of paper, I received little insight on how to really "feel" the music in a way that might resonate with me.

Fortunately, I picked up some new instruments in high school and began a journey of self-discovery that continues to this day. And along the way I found that the more music that I wanted to make, the more things I needed to learn how to do.

By age 20 or so I'd taught myself to do a lot - playing instruments, writing music, recording and producing, and a whole lot more. As this was all happening, people noticed that I could do things with music that they wanted to do and that I was pretty good at explaining how they could be done.

So that's how I got my first students. A few friends and acquaintances wanted to learn, and I was happy to help them. This continued for a while, and I found that I enjoyed it as much as the students seemed to.

The twists and turns of life eventually took over - my own musical pursuits, making my way in the real world, and ultimately marriage and fatherhood - but raising my own child and coaching youth sports has really inspired me to more actively teach music to new students under more formal arrangements. That's what's led me to TakeLessons.

It's amazing to see someone have a "light bulb" moment and go on to do things not previously imaginable. And it really can happen with anyone at any age and any level. That's what inspires me. Along my journey I've experienced some great things and worked with some amazing people. Now I'm bringing it back home in hopes that I can help you start your own rewarding journey.
