Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Abe Ovadia and I am a guitarist, composer & educator based in Central New Jersey. I hold a B.M. from Berklee College of Music & M.M. from New York University. I was also on NYU's adjunct faculty as a private instructor. This past year, I won best guitarist in the 2016 Hot House Jazz Awards.

My experiences in high school, college, & graduate school of studying with several different teachers on various instruments influenced the direction of my life in a profound way. These experiences instilled in me a deep appreciation of music that I believe is an important part of any well-rounded person. Furthermore, taking music lessons exposed me to a way of life that I otherwise would not have considered: a life in music.

Abe teaches two of my kids to play the piano and the guitar respectively.
They both wait for their music lesson all week! Abe is doing a great job and we definitely want to continue with the lessons :)

Abe is the most amazing instructor. He knows your potential & pushes you to achieve it. His patience is incredible & his motivation is second to none. I could not have chosen a better instructor as he has confidence in me & helps me to see it. 5 stars for sure! Thanks Abe for all you have taught me.
