Jordan is an extremely talented guitar player and teacher

Jordan Peters is one of the most talented teacher I had in the past years.

He have a really deep understanding of his musical theory combined to an incredible talent.

He can easily adjust his teaching to the need of the student and he don't hesitate to bring new directions in order to help the student going forward with his development.

I highly recommend Jordan if you have an interest in jazz, r&b and hip hop.

He knows his stuff

He really knows his stuff! Gave me plenty of new ideas and avenues to explore musically. Jordan will definitely help you take your playing to the next level. I'm very happy with the lessons I am taking.

Took what I heard in my head and put it on the frets

Jordan is one of the best guitar teachers I've encountered. He can do theory, scales, chords and all the standard stuff if you need that and want him too, but where he really helped me is precisely to get out of a musical plateau!

I knew just enough to sound good to most non-guitarists, and not quite enough to please myself or other jazz musicians. Jordan's approach helped that alot.

Jordan was fantastic at helping me explore musical space, letting my ear guide me to the notes I wanted to play instead of staying stuck in the same patters (and I don't mean in that hippie "you just gotta hear the music duuuudddee", kind of way, but with some serious practical tips and tricks to maximize the yield of what I knew).

Besides Jordan is just a fun guy to hang out with. We spent hours just listening to music and jamming to tracks.

I think the first thing you should look for in a teacher is someone you want to sound like. That might be different things for different people, but a couple minutes of listening to Jordan play and you'll know you want to sound like him too!

I started my lessons with Nick just one month. I know I am inquisitive, intense, overly involved and very detail oriented with my interests in general and I treat guitar the same way. I enjoy and immerse myself into it. I think Nick has a very broad knowledge of guitar playing and comes across as a very conscientious instructor in the way he handles my overachieving demands. I would surely recommend him.

Exceptional musician. Skilled and patient teacher.

I have been taking weekly guitar lessons with Nick for nearly four months now and it has been all I hoped for and more. As a recent retiree and amateur musician one of my goals is to rapidly improve my novice guitar skills. I was looking for a teacher who would push me hard but was willing to work with the particular songs and musical questions that I might bring to him each week. I could not be more pleased. Nick is able to immediately bring his knowledge and experience to any material that I bring to a lesson and he uses it as the basis for a wide range of teaching moments – whether it be technique, harmony, or improvisational approach. What I didn't anticipate was the extent to which his holistic, listening (and singing) based approach to playing an instrument has challenged me. Nick is making me a better musician not just a better guitar player. (And it is very helpful that he types out notes on all that we discuss and sends an email following each lesson.)

Mr. Nick R. is an absolutely great guitar player and music instructor. I'm a young professional jazz guitarist and instructor and have been taking jazz guitar lessons with Nick R. weekly since September of 2014. Every lesson, I receive a lot of information that I didn't know before and Nick always give me proper quantity and quality of task

Many ideas, information from his suggestions, including how to practice myself and instruction that goes beyond musical and guitar technique, also including psychological and philosophical concepts from Nick's experience and knowledge. His explanations are incredibly clear and easily to follow.

I've been playing guitar over 15 years. In my experience, it's very, very difficult to find a mentor like Nick R.

I truly appreciate meeting him and have tremendous respect for Professor R.

Thanks as always Nick!!

I love helping bass players with groove and understanding the bass' role in the band, find the pocket and lock in with the drummer.

Scott is not only an amazing guitarist, but he is a superb teacher. Kind, supportive, and has an uncanny ability to break-down difficult pickings and strums into understandable and easy to follow directions. Most importantly, very patient. I was self-taught in the 70s when everyone picked up a guitar, stopped as an adult and am now re-starting it again after 30 years-and enjoying every moment. Scott is able to teach any type of music or song and intuitively understands and teaches the guitar style that the student would like to learn. Any student who studies with Scott should consider themselves fortunate. Not only does he know his stuff, he is passionate about music and passing on this musical knowledge to his students.

Worlds greatest guitarist gives lessons (and he's a good guy too)

I have been taking lessons with Scott for almost 10 years. Lessons have varied from ear training to guitar to songwriting. He is one of the most knowledgable and gifted musicians/ teachers I have ever known.

Lesson structures have been both formal and informal (at my request). I take a lot of information and knowledge home from each one and plenty to practice. Whether you want to learn a song or you want to learn theory, he can explain anything clearly and comfortably meeting you on your skill level.

I was really uncomfortable with where I was musically when I first started taking lessons. Almost immediately after starting with Scott I was confident in talking with other musicians in their language.

Do yourself and anyone who hears you make music a favor, and get a lesson with Scott!

Respectful and Talented Teacher

Scott B. is a masterful guitarist. In addition, he's a great teacher. He communicates respectfully- as good as he is, he never talks down to you and regardless of your level, he speaks to everyone the same way and has the same professional teaching approach. He is amazingly knowledgeable and will give you all the tools you need to become a true guitarist. I can not say enough positive things about him as a guitar teacher!

I consider myself an intermediate bass player. Learning with Alex has increased my knowledge of the fret board and he knows and plays various styles of music. Which is what I need to increase my vocabulary. He is patient, laid back, fun and a great teacher. He will take the time to make sure you understand what you are playing, give homework, and positive feedback. The only negative thing is that I can't practice in person and all day with Alex. He by far is the best teacher I have ever had. And your crazy if you don't learn alot with this guy!

Devin A. New York, NY

I have played the Bass since 2003 and have extensive teaching experience on the instrument. The bass is the foundation of the rhythm section in rock, pop and jazz. I help bass students develop a strong instrumental technique as well as an approach to the important role that the bass plays in a musical ensemble.

I highly recommend , if you are interested in developing your guitar skills and/ or expanding your knowledge of music theory , to schedule an appointment with Devin for a lesson . I came from my native Brazil to study jazz at an american college and he patiently introduced me to jazz music . I not only was able to succeed in my jazz ensemble classes with straight A's , but I also got prepared to audition successfully to universities and will be completing my bachelors degree in music soon. And I thank Devin for that .

I had the privilege of taking guitar, ensemble, arrangement/composition, and theory lessons with Devin for 3 years. Not only is he very knowledgeable in his field, but he also has a knack for communicating his lessons in an easy-to-understand manner. Devin truly listens and is genuinely patient. He tailors his lessons to help you achieve your personal goals while simultaneously giving you a well-rounded, solid foundation in music standards. Plus, he's just a really nice guy! Definitely recommended!
