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!

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I am a professional Guitarist, Bassist, Pianist and Music Instructor based out of Haddonfield, NJ. I have taught hundreds of students between ages 4 and 70 from beginner to advanced in all musical styles. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Music in 2007, and was trained by top-tier musicians in Jazz, Classical, Blues, Rock, RnB, Pop and even Broadway.

My teaching style is to first identify what music motivates students, and then to carve out a path for them in fundamental practice towards achieving their goals, while preparing them for performance-level playing. Along that path, other musical styles, famous musicians and examples of mastery are introduced to broaden student’s understanding of what is achievable and to motivate them towards a higher level on their instrument.

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I like to make lessons fun and engaging for my students. Practicing for the sake of practicing doesn't yield usually leave a lasting love for playing music. I'm passionate about helping my students figure out what kind of music they enjoy or connect with and giving them the tools and techniques needed to play their favorite songs and styles - and also be able to play with their friends. I'm happy to go as deep into theory as the student wants to go. Learning the guitar changed my life because it gave me a new way to connect with people, and I started playing in churches and bands at a young age. My hope is to help my you or your child develop a love and mastery of your instrument!

I teach you a REAL rock, pop or country song that YOU want to learn. I tailor each lesson to each individual students songs THEY Want to learn. I don't waste time on outdated guitar lesson books or "Mary Had a LIttle Lamb" or drilling you on scales that you don't need to know YET. Let's play a song together

You decide what we learn--we can start with learning to read and play from a book for steady, foreseeable progress and goals, or simply start with the chords of your favorite songs from the radio--we can even learn tab--or all three! In our first lesson, we will discuss what your personal goals are for the guitar and formulate a plan for your individual success, based on the type of music YOU want to learn.

Students describe me as patient, fun, and encouraging, and as your guitar teacher, you can expect me to work with you from where you are, and with subjects and curriculum that match what you are interested in learning. *Please check my availability before signing up, as my time slots are quickly filling up!* I look forward to meeting you!

Rachel is a terrific violin teacher. My daughter is 13 and she starting taking violin lessons last year and now she has progressed so much from when she just begun. Rachel is really kind, patient, and funny. I highly recommend Rachel for violin lessons!!
Kristi M.
My two daughters, 13 and 16, have been taking lessons from Rachel for about a year now. They were beginning and intermediate levels. Both of them have enjoyed working with Rachel. She has kept lessons fun and engaging and we have seen a lot of progress. My daughters love celtic fiddle songs and Rachel has helped them play more on pitch and taught them some neat techniques. Rachel has also been very patient with our scheduling changes and is a great communicator.
Cindy
Rachel is a terrific and inspiring fiddle teacher. Lessons were focused on achieving my goals (which I did) but lots of fun too. Rachel is great at suggesting a number of approaches to improving your skills and also suggested some great new fiddle tunes! I highly recommend Rachel for fiddle lessons.

"Being a beginner (guitar) I attended my first class with a positive mind and no set expectations. I left class joyous, as Billy mastered to introduce me to guitar theory in such a simplified manner, which made it easy to grasp. I attended my second class last week, and feel that I have advanced/internalized greatly in such a short period. Further, I appreciate that Billy has always been prompt to attend my inquiries. Based on the aforementioned experiences, I look forward to my upcoming classes, and I’m very curious to know the end result - without hesitation, I'm certain it will be positive. Billy is a very gifted guitar teacher, hope he can teach for many years to come - as many can benefit from his great talents."

"Nils is an outstanding instructor. He spends whatever time he needs to to make sure you learn what you want to learn. He is very flexible, and very patient. He takes great interest in your progress, and focuses his lessons on the skills you want to learn rather than driving a specific rote curriculum. He focuses his lessons on song rather than technique, and he adapts his lessons to the kind of music you want to learn. He is so knowledgeable about guitar that he help you figure out how to play any piece. I have made great progress under his tutelage, and am advancing from the beginning stages much more quickly than I anticipated."

"I have been learning for past 3+ years with Jimmy and I got to tell you he a great teacher. I have lot of respect for him and his teachings. Not only he teaches guitar lessons he give me advise for personal developments. Three major things I like about Jimmy: He is available anytime to answer questions, He records lessons for me to practice at home and a clean studio.
Finally, I strongly recommend taking classes from Jimmy and I am sure you will see the difference and enjoy his teachings."

"Oliver is the best. I first met Oliver when my 8-year-old daughter took lessons from him. Because of his high energy, upbeat and patient approach, my daughter loved her lessons and made big progress as a beginner guitarist. Given her praise of him, I thought I would try lessons myself as an intermediate and its been great. In a few weeks, I've learned techniques, licks and music theory which has quickly taken my playing to another level. Out time together has also enhanced my interest in music in general. I highly recommend Oliver to anyone who wants to learn guitar or music theory."
