I'm a 29 year old guy with a lot of experience teaching. We can make a lot of progress together. I have a minor in music from the University of Rochester. I took music education courses at Eastman School of Music and Hofstra University. I toured the east coast with a rock band. I’ve played on cruise ships. I was a contestant on NBC's "The Sing-Off". I'm trained in jazz guitar, vocal performance, and music theory. I've worked as an elementary school teacher and a camp counselor for many years so I'm great with kids. Price is negotiable and time is flexible. Send me a quick message and we'll set something up.

Great songwriter and teacher! Knows when to follow the theory and when to throw it out the window. Learned a lot from taking lessons with Kieran.

When I first took lessons in high school (about 10 years ago) I was always the one struggling the hardest to learn how to play in my group of peers, I was often picked on about it and became the laughingstock pretty much. Even the teacher told me that guitar is not for everyone and suggested I pursue a different instrument to pick up. I gave up trying to learn how to play the guitar or any other instrument. My interest in playing the guitar sparked again when I took a class in music theory in one of my elective classes for college. I became so intrigued with the idea of being able to create my own music. So I scoured the internet and asked friends and family if they knew of any guitar teachers that offer lessons at a low rate. I eventually came across Kieran and he completely transformed my ability to play the guitar at an even higher standard than I thought possible. He really knows his stuff and I will recommend him to anyone I know in a heartbeat. I eventually got so good that I've even written music for myself to play and always get compliments on my abilities. I really owe it all to Kieran, he was the one that set me in the right path and opened many doors for me. I normally don't write reviews on anything but i felt it was completely necessary in this scenario. If you're looking for someone who can adapt to your unique personality, someone who is a dedicated teacher, and a teacher that can inspire you the best you can be, then Kieran is your guy!

Kieran worked so well with my son and his hours were flexible. Also it was so amazing watching my son go from a beginner to playing full songs. Highly recommend Kieran for private or group lessons.
