Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Music has a profound affect on our quality of life and perception. No matter the skill level, the joy of listening and performing music is something nearly every person finds valuable to their life. I feel it is a privilege to have the opportunity to share my understanding of music with others.

I have been teaching publicly and privately for over 10 years. I teach music using songs the student(s) listen to. Fundamentals are introduced using the music that you love. I studied Music Education at Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) as well as classical guitar (IUP) and jazz guitar (IUP, Duquesne Faculty).

I look forward to the opportunity to work with you.

My tuition brings:

Personalized, well prepared, fun and practical lessons.

Continuation, each class builds on previously learned material.

Progress checks using memos taken during teaching.

My students know me for my patience, attention to detail, and positive reinforcement, but also equally for placing importance on the joy of learning.

I have been studying guitar privately for 27 years, have taught for 20 years and I am qualified to teach jazz/pop/rock guitar, improvisation, and theory. I graduated from the music performance program at Queensborough Community College. At Q.C.C. I was fortunate to receive formal training in ear training/ sight singing I-IV, music theory I-IV, convocation performance, performance juries, as well as receiving private lessons focused on jazz improvisation.

I majored in guitar performance concentrating on jazz improvisation but I also have been studying guitar privately for around 27 years with a strong emphasis on rock, blues, and pop.

Steve is teaching my son and we are both so happy with his teaching. My son is not a beginner and was looking for a teacher to help him take the next step on the guitar. They have been working on scales, intervals, improvisation, chords and more. I really appreciate how he gives my son clear instructions on what to review for the next class and then checks to make sure progress was made before moving on. Great teacher, highly recommend.

James is awesome! He teaches both my kids (11 & 13) AND my husband! He’s great with all of them! He’s knowledgeable, a great teacher, has a really positive upbeat attitude, and he’s an awesome guitarist! You can tell he’s passionate about what he does and it shows during each lesson.

Jeff Cope is fantastic. He teaches both my son and I. I am not exactly the most musically inclined and Jeff makes it so easy and comfortable to take a lesson. I was so intimidated before I started lessons and Jeff makes it easy to be comfortable. I highly recommend him!

"Jimmy is the best. After learning to play the guitar on my own, he helped me correct many poor habits, and understand how to get a better sound. He introduced me to music theory, and helped me learn my way around the instrument. He breaks down very complex information and makes it understandable. I learned more from him in a few months than years of searching around the internet."

"I started my lessons with Nick just one month. I know I am inquisitive, intense, overly involved and very detail oriented with my interests in general and I treat guitar the same way. I enjoy and immerse myself into it. I think Nick has a very broad knowledge of guitar playing and comes across as a very conscientious instructor in the way he handles my overachieving demands. I would surely recommend him."

"Elena teaches our 7 year old daughter acoustic guitar and voice for a few months now. Within those few months our daughter has learned so much. Elena makes sure the goals that are set are met and makes it so much fun while doing so. As our daughter progresses, Elena makes it a little more challenging but not to the point where it gets frustrating. Our daughter LOVES her and so do we. Elena is all what we expected in a teacher and more. Definitely recommend her!"

"Joe's knowledge of guitar is expert and spans a wide variety of genres. It's rare to find a guitarist who considers phrasing and dynamics while playing, but Joe does exactly this, breathing life into all his licks with mindful control over volume and articulation. I've learned a lot about Blues chord progressions, and I'm sure a guitarist of any genre will learn a lot from him. Highly recommended."

He is very patient and his studio has a relaxed atmosphere that is conducive to learning. Kyle is a great listener and there’s no pressure regardless of your skill level. No one could be more of a beginner than me and I feel like I’ve come a long way in a short amount of time. I would highly recommend him for both beginners and the more experienced alike."

4 Tips For Maximizing the Lifespan of Your Acoustic Guitar

Whether your acoustic guitar is brand new or gently used, you can do a few simple things to keep it in great condition! Follow these tips from guitar teacher Samuel B. to get the most out of your acoustic guitar... Let's face it. Acoustic guitars can be an outright nuisance to keep in shape. They're delicate, sensitive to both humidity and temperature patterns, and often have weak central support. While the desire to keep yours both easily accessible and on display in a stand or on a rack is …
