· Banjo · In studio
I went into banjo lessons not knowing if I could master the instrument or not, being nearly 70 years old. While by no means a master (and never going to be), I have learned so much from Sam and he has shown such patience with me. I often leave my lessons wondering how he ever puts up with me - but he does. His encourgement, laid-back style, expertise and knowledge of music (plus theory) and the banjo is impressive. His good nature makes my lessons so much more pleasant. I would say Sam is a a great teacher for both a beginner or an accomplished musician or in between. He likes to talk and demonstrate (nice and slowly if requested) so I would recommend hour-long lessons at first.

About Carla U.

Profile_31386_pi_IMG_2208
Somerset, NJ
View Full Profile

I have a degree in music, and have taught at three summer camps three music stores and two universities.

I have been teaching guitar since 1990. I teach ages 9 and up, and I aim to tailor lessons to work with your natural strengths and learning style.

I offer note-reading but it is optional. We can study guitar using tablature and chord diagrams. The important thing is to make great music, enjoy the process, play songs you like, make steady progress and become independent.

If I teach you well, eventually you won't need me very much- you'll be able to figure things out on your own,

I started playing guitar when I was 4. I've played classical, rock, a bit of jazz, folk, a little bluegrass, and fingerstyle. I love the guitar and I love teaching!

About Carla
Music is my LIFE!

After more than 25 years of teaching at music camps, music stores, 3 colleges and my home, I completely understand that the lessons are all about YOU, the student: what you want to learn, taught to you in a way that works for your brain and personality.

And if you don't know exactly what you want to learn, that's OK. We can figure that out together as we go along learning the basics.

I help students learn to play songs by artists they like.

I also help students write songs, or put chords to their existing lyrics.

For those who are interested, I teach note-reading (not required) and theory (not required) and ear training (not required).

The lessons are always tailored towards your (the student's) goals.

I also teach classical and fingerstyle guitar for the occasional person who specifically wants
either of those styles.

My purpose as a teacher: help people have a fun experience, learning in an organized way, adapted to your learning style and goals, while learning to do exactly what you wanted to do when you decided you wanted to play the guitar.

In 1994, I was let go from my job at a music store because I was sick. Which sounds awful, but was the best thing to ever happen to me- it was then I got over my fears and became a full-time musician, teaching and writing and performing. I have never looked back! I may not be a household name, but I am living the dream.

Whether you want to sing to your kids or play for an audience of 50,000, or just play guitar for yourself, you first have to get started.

Wait no longer! The guitar is calling!

Carla is a fantastic teacher! She keeps the lesson lively and interesting, pushes you along but not too much.
In just the handful of lessons I have had so far my level has jumped further than expected.
Carla has been very helpful with the "tricky-bits" that have caused me issues. Helped to remedy them and move on.
Look no further for a great teacher, better yet I'll keep her to myself.

I teach guitar in a variety of styles, equally able to coach beginners to classical or jazz guitar, students looking to develop their skills of accompaniment or self-accompaniment with chord charts and lead sheets, and those looking to widen their knowledge of music theory and discover why and how music works for their own compositions or deeper appreciation of the music they already play!

About William
William is a conductor, composer, actor, singer, and multi-instrumentalist. A live musician and recording artist of over a decade, he is versed in all styles of popular music and is equally at home in such diverse disciplines as jazz guitar, music theory, accordion/banjo/folk instruments, piano, and much more. His achievements in classical music have reached the notice of Opera News, which recently featured him in their August 2016 cover story. His work as conductor, performer, and stage director give him a wide breadth of knowledge and experience especially suited to dramatically-aspiring performance artists. For students wanting a comprehensive view of music and/or stage craft, William represents the complete package. From the singer needing vocal and dramatic coaching on their latest aria to the junior pianist working their way through
new repertoire, William's style combines knowledge of the craft at hand with context from related disciplines with a goal of always being able to answer the enterprising student's most important question: "Why?"

About Rachel
Rachel started playing guitar and singing when she was 13 when she got a Christmas present from her father who happens to be a musician, also. Learning covers for a few years she eventually started writing her own music around age 16.

Now, 31, she teaches beginner guitar classes; holds online concerts as well as live shows; and teaches budding artists how to start their own creative business from home.

Her teaching passion came from her love for the experience- having played in bands since 18; recorded a full album when in 2011. Her style is considered Indie Folk, playing a mix of covers and originals.

Happy learner :)
"Very pleased with the time I spent with Rachel! She is patient and takes her time when explaining everything! I feel comfortable recommending her services to everyone." -Sarah H.

If you want to be the best guitar player you can be, the first step is to study with someone who not only knows what they are talking about, but has the experience to back it up! My name is Olin and I hold a Masters of Music degree from Michigan state university, as well as performing and touring professionally with jazz, blues, rock, reggae, hip-hop/rap, r'n'b, and pop bands. I have been teaching privately for over seven years, with students aged 4-60! I am educated not only in jazz, but in a multitude of styles of music, and I want to share what I know with dedicated students who love music as much as I do.

I believe that developing a personal relationship with my students is the most important aspect of my effectiveness as their teacher. I prefer to use both aural and visual learning, as well as demonstrating with my instrument and explaining with verbal communication.

About Olin
I am a Brooklyn resident and Michigan native who has played guitar for over 11 years in most musical styles you can Imagine. Jazz, rock, reggae, world/fusion, r'n'b, rap/hip-hop, pop, rockabilly, blues, electronic - I have played it! I have toured extensively around the US and Canada, as well as in Trinidad and Tobago, teaching and playing for people from all over the world. I am looking for students who love music and are ready to learn!
