Lesson Details

Country Guitar

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
I have been playing guitar now for 22 years. It has been a lifelong passion of mine that I would like to share with you. I like to build lessons based on music that YOU or your child enjoys listening to. I find that this approach much more rewarding and makes the motivation to practice come naturally. Most importantly I want to make sure that learning guitar is fun. Many people buy a guitar learn a few songs with power chords, get bored and then the guitar either gathers dust or ends up in a pawn shop somewhere. I not only want to teach you guitar but more importantly teach you music. I take pride in my ability to nurture passion in music which makes practicing an enjoyment rather than a chore. I will teach you or your child the foundation of music theory, chords, rhythm, scales, soloing, music genres all personalized to you. I can teach anyone from grade school to adulthood. All you need is a guitar and a willingness to learn. I can also teach beginner level piano. I hope to be jamming with you soon.

I am passionate lifelong guitar player. I began playing when I was 8 years old and over the course of the next 22 years improved through private lessons, playing guitar in high school band, amateur rock bands as a teenager as well as studying some music theory at Brooklyn College. I am well versed in a wide array of musical genres and can tailor my lessons to your specific tastes and needs while still covering the fundamental techniques, theory, ear training and skills necessary to meet your musical goals.

I am an amateur piano player and wanted to learn how to play the guitar. Max was amazing as he taught me how to transition perfectly. I am still taking lesson from him in a regular basis and my nephew will be here this summer and I’m going to have him teach him as well. What a wonderful young man and teacher!

When I started guitar I was an absolute beginner who was lost in a sea of everyone promising you short cuts and all sorts of gimicks to learn the guitar. However after meeting max in a short couple of weeks i learned the tools i needed to reach my goals a a guitarist. With his lessons tailored to your personal musical tastes your always going to be looking forward to the next lesson , if your willing to put in the work i highly recomend him as your music teacher.

I had a wonderful time learning with Max. Unlike other teachers, he really cared about my learning guitar and understand music rather than just memorizing chords. He inspired me to keep at it, and tailored every lesson to my personal taste. He is truly a special teacher and I couldn't recommend him more
