I have been teaching electric and acoustic guitar for 20 years and I bring a very pragmatic style designed to help students learn usable tools and get up to speed playing good sounding music. I started playing music at 5 years old on piano and currently play guitar, bass, drums, and keys. I began teaching while studying for my bachelors in Jazz and started building the system I currently use to help students develop good habits and add building blocks over successive lessons to grow efficiently towards musical goals and see real progress. I teach all musical styles and ages and have a passion for helping people achieve their musical ambitions.

I am a lifelong musician who has studied Jazz and Rock guitar at UNCW and Berklee in Boston. Over 20 years experience on the guitar playing, teaching and performing has taught me many valuable lessons that I am passionate about conveying to my students. Music is not just a passion for me but a way

My daughter started lessons with Ellen in person before the pandemic and shifted to online lessons since the pandemic. In both formats Ellen has been excellent in providing professional guidance, new tools / exercises, but most importantly, she has been able to help my daughter gain her confidence back and actually enjoy learning more about her self through her voice. I highly recommend Ellen, she’s always been responsive, responsible, on time, and extremely professional while also warm and approachable.

Ellen is awesome. I am a total beginner and perfectionist so I don't tend to do well with learning something new in front of another person. I grow easily frustrated when I don't pick things up quickly and easily and get embarrassed when I make mistakes. Ellen makes the lessons super comfortable for me and I leave having learned something new every time. I have a LONG way to go but I can see where this can lead and plan to stick with it. She knows how to make music and an instrument make sense to someone with no background in music which is very helpful for me. I plan to stick with her for a long time!

I have been teaching guitar for 10 years and have been a professional musician for the same amount of time. First and foremost I want my student to have fun while learning the guitar! I will base our lesson plans around the songs and styles you want to learn. I will write out easy to read chord charts, sheet music, tab, and even record video examples for you to reference when you are practicing at home. I have taught ages 5-70 and all levels of players from total beginners to college students majoring in music.

I have taught through the City College of New York, The Larchmont Music Academy, Music Box NYC, and tons of my own private students.

About Pat

I have taught lessons since 2008 and love it! I enjoy teaching all levels and truly enjoy seeing my students improve and fall in love with playing music. Teaching has been one of the most fulfilling endeavors of my life. I began playing guitar at the age of 10. With the encouragement of my father,

Pat is a top notch NYC jazz musician with an excellent teaching style. He quickly zeroed in on my current level of ability and goals and helped design a practice plan that delivered results and kept me motivated. My strongest recommendation!
Jon
Pat really knows his stuff with jazz guitar. My goal has been to study chord melody with some jazz standards and modal jazz, and Pat has a lot of ideas with chord shapes, voicings, scale choices and alternate and passing chords. I play a lot of rock tunes as well and I've found the lessons with Pat have really helped me expand how I look at playing those songs as well. As a teacher, Pat is really patient and provides really useful supplemental charts. Highly recommended.
Aliza h.
Pat is the best guitar teacher I have ever had! Pat makes all the lessons super enjoyable, yet I still learnt a ton! Pat always explained everything super clearly and I had so much fun! I have learnt so much in the year I have been playing guitar and pat made that possible!

"Ben is a wonderful teacher. Ben is patient while I learn new techniques. I learn new techniques every session which is important to me to keep on learning and keep on improving. Ben and I play together in review of what I have learned which is fun and it teaches me about music timing, rhythm and more. I have brought some songs to Ben and we review and play. I feel thus far I have made great strides as a guitarist and hope to make more."

"Great Teacher and inspirational

Andrew is a great teacher. I've been taking guitar lessons for a little over six months with him now and I have learned a lot. I started off only knowing the basic chords, bits and pieces of a few songs, and a little bit of music theory. Now I understand where chords come from (and what they compose of), scales, a couple of songs of my favorite songs, and a lot more music theory. My strumming has improved and my playing has gotten noticeably better.

Teaching style is very organized and structured to build each lesson upon another. It worked out really well for me because I made sure I practiced almost every night in the beginning. You also have your option to learn what you want (for instance if you want to learn a song, few licks, etc.). He will steer you in the right path.

Andrew as a person did not seem judgmental. I was a bit hesitant to play in front of him at first but I've learned to loosen up. He gives create constructive criticism.

I would recommend Andrew for any of my friends who wants to learn how to play guitar. I had a lot of fun and learned a lot. No regrets!"

"Could not have asked for a better teacher

Richard has been a wonderful teacher for our 13-year-old son. He is patient, informative, and interesting; he makes his lessons engaging, yet appropriate for our son's proficiency level. He is also extremely professional, well-mannered and considerate.

Richard is the real deal. You can tell that he loves music and that he loves to perform, but he's also great at instruction, which is an unusual combination. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone."

"I've been taking lessons from Chris less than a year (I think), and it has been a very positive experience. He is well-versed in many styles of music and has a excellent grasp of music-theory, which he is happy to share and apply to my style. I've been playing guitar for several years, and the fact that Chris will adjust his teaching methods to fit my style is invaluable.

On a professional-level, these lessons take place in my home, and Chris is super-punctual, and is never late, which helps with my hectic schedule. His communication is excellent, and he responds quickly to all messages via text and email.

Great experience. Great guy. Highly recommended."
