I am available for private lessons at my studio in Center City Philadelphia, as well as online lessons. I work with students of all ages and levels, including beginners.

Teaching is a passion of mine and I truly enjoy helping students of all levels achieve their musical goals.

I don’t apply a singular approach for each student, because every student has their own strengths and weaknesses. As lessons continue, I pay close attention to how a student learns and picks up on new information which I use to guide me in choosing the most effective strategies going forward. Depending on the level, lessons can range from reading music, developing and improving technique, and understanding the music to allow for informed musical choices.

While I will always have suggestions regarding the choice of repertoire, I think it’s very important for the student to be playing music that they personally enjoy and will be motivated to practice. With beginners I do encourage a more structured approach,

wonderful books for ages 5 through Adult. Also a great way to sing and read music while playing an instrument. My teaching method includes notation if you haven’t studied a prior instrument . Books can also take in your specific interests, rock, jazz, country, after basic concepts . I first learned guitar so I could accompany myself singing and played in the church contemporary group. I love teaching and meeting people, and I promise you will enjoy your lessons.

I pay attention to detail, and do not skip past the fundamentals of guitar technique. I make sure to explain why certain techniques are essential, and why I teach things a certain way. I try to keep my lessons organized and focused.

I cover guitar basics, theory and technique, but with guitar I like to focus the lessons around songs which the student and/or I choose.

I teach various styles, on acoustic or electric (with or without pedals) Also, if you're a great singer but would like to learn how to play and sing at the same time I can help you with that as well!

Private Guitar Teacher

Hi, I’m Norman, and I teach guitar and all other fretted instruments. I have maintained a weekly schedule of about 40 studio and online students since 2010. Lessons with me are fun, streamlined, and filled with music.

My students can play their instruments well, and they know their chords, scales, arpeggios, songs, and other compositions. Using the state-of-the art music learning theory I studied at Eastman School of Music, performers gain the confidence to play in solo recitals, or with a group, or even to teach others to play, too.

About Norman

I have been teaching other people to play musical instruments since the moment I got home from my first music store guitar lesson. And while I am fortunate that teaching has always come naturally to me, I am very grateful that my degrees in music performance, music education, and instructional desig

"Ryan is the third guitar teacher I have tried and in my opinion the best. While the others I tried were either too unstructured or too technical, Ryan does an excellent job of teaching you the all the basics while tying in the more technical theory aspects in a manner that is both efficient and logical. The way he is able to break things down has helped me progress much faster compared to my other guitar teachers. He is also well versed in adapting yours lessons to the style of music you want to learn how to play and can teach you all the different nuances that will help your playing stand out. I highly recommend giving Ryan a shot to help your reach your guitar playing goals."

Everything You Need to Know About the Blues Scale on Guitar

Learning the blues scale on guitar is something of a rite of passage for every guitarist. If you’re a beginner with reasonable dexterity and you’re serious about learning, you’ll find the blues scale to be extremely useful. For intermediate guitarists, this scale is essential, but it’s also important to understand that scales are merely the alphabet of the blues language. It's important to go beyond that and play real blues melodies as well, so you can start to better understand …

Do You Have The Right Strings On Your Guitar?

Each year the CMT honors country music stars at their Artists of the Year celebration - 2011's honorees included Brad Paisley, Jason Aldean and Kenny Chesney.  Before they were stars, however, they had to work up their guitar skills from the very beginning. Of course, if you'd like to be the next musician in line for country stardom, you'll need to keep your guitar at your side.  Ideally, you should have already found the perfect guitar (or even better, maybe one of these.)
