I've been seeing Keith for guitar lessons for several years now. Everyone says learning an instrument as an adult (I'm in my 40's) would be insurmountable, but Keith made it easy. Highly recommended.

I found Keith to be very reliable, patient, knowledge in several subjects, flexible with problem solving and understanding of children's moods and personalities. He comes with a wide array of talent and is willing to meet your child at his/her interest level and learning style. He even switched from tutoring reading to art because my child totally refused to be tutored in reading.
He came prepared and on time every time, ready to tutor in either subject because my child was difficult, uncooperative and would not stick to her scheduled sessions. Through all this Keith remained dedicated, supportive and patient. He worked with us even to the premature ending of our sessions, and even then he remained understanding and supportive of our decision to end.
If there's one tutor I'd recommend; it would be Keith. He WILL make every effort to reach your child and engage them in the learning process to attain positive growth and development, you will NOT be disappointed in any way.

Keith has done a wonderful job introducing my son Thomas to bass guitar. From the first lesson my son enjoyed Keith's style of teaching. Keith is very flexible in adjusting to the learning style of the student. My son had particular songs he wanted to learn and Keith was open to helping him become familiar with the instrument through the songs that appealed to Thomas. I would highly recommend Keith for students at all levels. Keith is an experienced, personable, and talented teacher.

Helped me out in a jam with my Shakespeare class at NJCU. Was able to meet up with him in the campus library. Helped me understand King Lear so well that when it came to writing my essay on it, I didn't really need his help, save for some basic proofreading. Highly recommended.

I was a stubborn student, but Keith helped me explore different ways to think about chords and picking styles. It definitely helped in regards to my development as a guitar player and song writer and I am happy to have had him as my instructor! :-)

My 5 year old started with Keith while he was working at Jaime's Music in Bayonne. I've had nothing but a great experience with him. I was apprehensive at first, as I was told by other teachers that five was too young, but Keith helped us find the right guitar for him. My son is seven now, and although Keith isn't his teacher anymore, he's made a lasting impression. I even learned a little guitar, too!
