Teaching since:

Hello aspiring guitarists!

My name is Emma, I'm a classical guitarist with a huge variety of teaching experience. I trained at the Ithaca College Conservatory of Music, worked for many years at the Guitar Foundation of America, and have taught privately since 2010 (first on flute, but that was a while ago!). I've taught children ages 5 and up, adult amateurs, flamenco enthusiasts, song writers, rockers and more. I want to work with you to achieve your musical goals - not mine. I will meet you or your child where they are and we will make guitar lessons an engaging, inspiring and educational process. Feel free to ask me any questions about myself or my teaching style - I look forward to meeting you!

When I hit '5 stars' it inserted 'best instructor ever' -- and I would have to agree!

Emma came to our home to teach my two young sons guitar, and was amazing! She was patient, systematic, and well-prepared. With young children it is hard to maintain their focus, but they did great with her! I speak from experience, because we went through 3 guitar teachers before finding Emma. She truly was the best ever, and it was a sad day when she moved away from us. I encourage anyone to pursue lessons with her -- and can personally vouch for her ability with children!

Emma is everything I could ask for in a guitar teacher. She is patient yet has discipline in my practice. She is always very encouraging and is a very clear instructor making everything super easy to understand. Emma takes you through the basics and helps you work your way up at your own pace. I would highly recommended her to anyone who is interested in learning classical guitar!
