I offer lessons in Guitar for all levels, having 5+ years of teaching experience and 12 in music education. I've taught children from 7 years old to adults 60+ from many different backgrounds, and my lessons are always structured the same way: To serve your needs, your goals and allow you to enjoy the process of learning.

I began playing when I was 11, and I find that for any beginner, it's important to start with material that gets instant "musical" sound from the guitar. This consists on learning the chords to your favorite songs, some easy riffs or melodies, and dicovering the path you want to take on the instrument. Once you get more advanced, technical aspects like music theory and how to use it creatively take a more important role in the lessons. For advanced players, I will find your strengths and weaknesses, and we will work on maintaining those strengths while slowly improving on the weaknesses, which may be technical, theoretical or even psychological. If you are more advanced and looking to learn a particular style or area of the guitar such as improvisation, fingerpicking, extended chord vocabulary or if you need to prepare for a college audition (including sight-reading) I have the material you need, as I went through the same process.

Let me know if you would like to work together, I can only guarantee success and a positive experience!

About Ramiro M.

Hello there!

My name is Ramiro. I am a Professional Guitarist and Music Teacher from Argentina, living in the beautiful city of New York. I have 12 years of study in music, 5+ years of teaching experience and 10+ years of performance experience. I am also a graduate of Berklee College of Music (Summa Cum Laude).

LESSONS

. Guitar (Beginner - Professional)
. Electric Bass (Beginner - Advanced)
. Beginner Piano
. Music Theory (Jazz and/or Classical)

I teach children from 5 years old to adults 60+ from many different backgrounds, and my lessons are always structured the same way: To serve your needs, your goals and allow you to enjoy the process of learning. Some students want to come in and learn enough to play and sing some of their favorite songs; others want to learn the theory and technique of their instrument to the fullest. I'm here for you and will adapt the lesson to your best interest.

*ONLINE SETUP*

I live in NYC, but I do a lot of teaching from my fully-equipped home studio. I utilize ZOOM (like Skype), with a great recording microphone for true sound quality, PDF documents, screen-sharing and a virtual whiteboard that I use to explain concepts. It's almost like an in-person lesson, but ofcourse it's not. Considering current world events, this may be the best and only option at the moment.

* * * *
- I find that for any beginner, it's important to start with material that gets instant "musical" sound from the guitar. This consists on working on basic chords/patterns which you may use to start singing songs, learning some easy melodies, and finding the path you want to take on the instrument. The goal is to always enjoy your first steps, which will lead to quick progress.
- Once you get more advanced, technical aspects like music theory and technique take a more prominent role in the lessons, if you wish to follow that path. These students have a great passion for the instrument and desire to learn outside of class.
- For advanced players, I will find your strengths and weaknesses, and we will work on maintaining those strengths while slowly improving on the weaknesses; they may be technical, theoretical or even psychological. If you are looking to learn a particular style or aspect of the guitar such as improvisation, fingerpicking, extended chord vocabulary or if you need to prepare for a college audition (including sight-reading) I have the material you need, as I went through the same process.

I would like to work with you if you are willing to improve. I can only guarantee success and a relaxed, positive experience.

Ramiro is a really chill guy, and he teaches me at a comfortable pace, yet challenging me at the same time. He helped me fix my bad habits and creates fun exercises to do for technical stuff so I don't get bored. Definitely would recommend !

I’ve performed with Ramiro many times around the East Coast and he always showed a high level of professionalism. He always prepared and on time.
