About Martone M.

I have performed professionally on stage and in the studio for over 20 years. I studied music with a double major in guitar and bass guitar. I also play flute and keyboards. I began my musical training at 10 years old learning how to play guitar. I have a deep love for music and began to teach what I know to others and found that teaching music is very rewarding. I like to help others discover the joy that comes from learning and playing a musical instrument.

I am great with young students just starting out and make sure that learning their instrument is a fun experience. With teenagers and adults, I not only teach guitar methods, but also the basic principles required to "jam" with other musicians. I also work with bands and ensembles teaching basic performance techniques required to perform live.

I can teach folk, rock, country, blues and jazz methods. I also teach my students how music is constructed so the student can understand how a chord is built or a guitar lead is developed. I teach basic music theory, songwriting and composing, which is very important for the serious guitar student.

Marty is an absolutely great teacher. He is very patient and encouraging. You learn plenty but it does not feel like a chore. He makes you want to play and practice the guitar.

Martone is an awesome teacher. I have learned much from him, and had fun the whole time. He has done a great job at making me feel wanted. He also has done a great job at going at my pace. On top of that, he has been really flexible in scheduling, there have been a few days I have been late or needed to switch my lesson's date and he worked with me to get it all figured out, pain free. If you are looking to learn guitar, Marty here has you covered! He is skilled, kindhearted, and easy going.
