Nero C.

Philadelphia, PA

Strumming, jazz chords, or just adapt your favorite songs to the uke.

About Nero

I have been teaching music for 20 years. I grew up on the 2nd floor of my father's music store in Central PA and have been around music my whole life. I earned a bachelor’s degree in Music Performance from the University of the Arts where I studied jazz guitar with Pat Martino, Jimmy Bruno, Steve Giordano, and Tom Giacabetti. I was one of the original teachers during the formative years at the Paul Green School of Rock Music where I later went on to be the Music Director of the Philadelphia and Downingtown Schools. During that time, I helped many students prepare and get accepted to music
schools, ran and developed music summer camps, and organized concerts where the students performed the music of Led Zeppelin, the Beatles, and many more of rock's finest band at every major venue in Philadelphia.

I have been active in the local music scene recording and playing sold-out shows at the Electric Factory, Union Transfer, TLA, Trocadero, Johnny Brenda's and World Café Live with such acts as Work Drugs, 722, Bebek, Franzschubert, Sensi Star, Clean Equations, The Black Lodge Ensemble, Dani Mari, Ashley Phillips, and The Smash Brothers. I have played jazz at the Kimmel Center, musical theater at the Walnut Street and Arden Theaters, reggae bass at the Jersey Shore, and rocked out at CBGB's and the Filmore. I have toured throughout the east coast and as far as Shanghai and Stockholm. I bring all this range of experience to each lesson.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very easy going and patient teacher. My objective is for a guitar, bass, uke, mandolin or banjo lesson to be both educational and fun. I do not adhere to a strict curriculum because I have found over the years that everyone learns differently. I cater my lessons to the individual goals and tastes of my students.

Whether it is a 7 year old successfully playing a D chord or teenager connecting the dots of music theory, the most satisfying experiences for me is when a student has that “ah hah” moment. I feel it is my job not only to channel creativity but also to help students develop discipline. A typical lesson will consist of learning new skills such as working on rhythm and developing a good ear but most importantly, we will do a large amount of playing.

My teaching studio is furnished with two practice amps, a small PA, and a music stand. I have several guitars both acoustic and electric, plus a bass, keyboards, and several percussion instruments around the house to play with. I really enjoy working with students to develop their own music and am equipped to record demos. I also have an extensive songbook and guitar tab library as a resource to learn songs from. I do have a cat, just to let you know, and my house very easy to get to via public transportation.

Peter A.

Morrisville, PA

Ukulele has become extremely popular in the last few years. It's a fantastic instrument to pick up because it's a little easier to play and it's super portable. I offer ukulele lessons for any age and any skill level.

Do you play guitar and want to learn how to convert your skills to the ukulele? I teach a unique, specialized method for guitarists to transfer their existing knowledge onto the ukulele fretboard and see results instantly. Let me know if this sounds like you.

About Peter

My name is Pete. I've been playing guitar for over 15 years. In 2011 I graduated from the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston with a degree in Professional Music. There, I spent several semesters studying with Tomo Fujita (former teacher of John Mayer and Eric Krasno). I've also studied with legendary guitarist Pat Metheny and Jack Pezanelli. Stevie Ray Vaughan, Wes Montgomery, and Jimi Hendrix are responsible for inspiring me to play guitar and I specialize in teaching blues and jazz guitar, bass, and piano. I firmly believe that every serious musician should study ear training and
music theory and I incorporate these areas in my lessons as long as the student wants to study this way. I've performed with a bunch of great artists in the Boston and Philadelphia area.
In 2011, I successfully obtained my master's degree in Jazz Studies from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. The master's program was an intense submersion in music performance that shaped me into the musician that I am today. I was lucky to study with Don Glanden, Mike Kennedy, and Kevin Hanson.
I am also well versed in computer recording software and DAWs. I teach students how to use software programs such as Logic and Reason as well as notation software like Sibelius and Finale. With some basic training in these programs, I can teach a student how to effectively record and produce professional quality recordings so that a student can write, record, and produce their own music.

*** Lesson Details ***
Because I've studied with some legendary teachers who have taught some legendary students (like John Mayer), I'm able to pass on to my students the same knowledge that these incredible teachers passed on to me. I guarantee that I will be unlike any guitar teacher that you've had before. Along with instrumental training, I offer extensive lessons in music theory and ear training. My family is full of educators and I've experienced the teacher-student relationship from a young age. I am fully committed to developing lesson plans based on the route that a student wants to take, whether it's just learning the basics and playing along to your favorite songs or engaging in serious study and preparing for college auditions. I am available to teach at any location within the Philadelphia area.

*** Stylistic Focus ***
I specialize in jazz and blues. At Berklee, I was able to take instrumental labs that spent an entire semester focusing on the playing style of certain guitarists. I've taken the Wes Montgomery lab, the Pat Martino lab, the Jimi Hendrix lab, the John Scofield lab, and the Stevie Ray Vaughan lab.

Peter is a great teacher who can be very flexible according to the 'path' the student wants to take. In my case it was classical, but we branched off into Electric Bass and steel string a few times.
This guy is phenomonal with a steel string - and a very thoughtful teacher.

Luis G.

Ardmore, PA

Uke is a great instrument for all ages. I've had students as young as 5 and others in their 40s. It's fun and easy to grasp and I love taking on Uke students whenever possible. I teach both Baritone and Standard (Soprano/Concert/Tenor) ukulele.

About Luis

I am father to 3 girls [Elaine, Grace and Emma] so I'm very comfortable with kids of all ages. I studied Music Performance with a concentration in Classical Guitar at Eastern University, where I met my wife Allison who currently teaches Voice and Piano with Take Lessons. I received an Honorable Discharge for 8 years in the US Army and work at The University of Pennsylvania in the School of Medicine, which I also attend. I teach lessons privately and through take lessons just for the love of it.

I'm very easy going and patient. I focus on technique and music reading skills rather than buildi
ng repertoire. I would rather a student that is confident in their ability to play a few songs to a high standard than an unsure student that can play many to a lower standard.

As far as my own musical interests, I love classical guitar and the folk/singer songwriter genre. Artists I listen to regularly include The Swell Season(Glen Hansard), Gregory Alan Isakov, Iron and Wine, The Milk Carton Kids, Simon and Garfunkel, M.Ward, Of Monsters & Men, Nick Drake, Elliot Smith, Ray LaMontagne, The Mountain Goats, Andrew Bird, Dawes, Neutral Milk Hotel, Woodpigeon. I'm just realizing that could go on for a long time... I stay up to speed on most contemporary artists for the sake of my students. I regularly teach songs current pop artists in the interest of maintaining student engagement.

My real passion is in Classical Guitar music. There are few things that give me more joy than playing classical guitar. I love any opportunity to share that with someone eager to learn.

*** Lesson Details ***
In my lessons I like to start by reviewing what has been learned in the previous lesson, making sure to address any concerns before teaching something new. To ensure the student is truly learning and maintaining what I teach during our lessons we will do some short musical exercises which apply to that week's lesson, as well as some musical repertoire that reinforces the new principles taught in that lesson. I feel that correct repetitive practice of these exercises and music will ensure happiness with your progression as a musician. I do my best to learn the musical interests of my students and to personalize each lesson/assignment so that they remain engaged and excited.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have small studio space connected to my family room with a Piano and my guitars/amps (and any other instruments my wife and I have collected over the years). Parents can sit in studio or relax in the family room during lessons. It's a nice quiet suburban area and I have off street parking just outside the door.

Warning: I have friendly cats! They will rub up against your leg and may even purr loudly! In the most extreme cases, they have even been known to fall asleep while snuggling in an unsuspecting parents lap.

Lu is a fantastic teacher. He is patient, fun, and very knowledgeable about the guitar and music in general. He happily caters to your skills, background, and musical tastes. He is there to make sure you understand everything, but also have fun with what you are playing.

As a beginner, we started with a few basic cords so I could start playing real songs within my first week. He is attentive and flexible to what you are looking to learn, and I very much appreciate his patience and accommodating nature.

Lu is a wonderful guitar teacher and I highly recommend him!

Allison T.

Oaklyn, NJ

What's not to love about the ukulele? Sweet and portable, the uke has made a huge comeback. I'd love to get you started. We'll learn chords and strumming techniques and apply those to the songs you're keen to play. We will also learn to read music and music theory.

About Allison

I believe in taking a holistic approach to teaching piano, incorporating music theory, ear training, healthy physical technique, improvisation and sight reading. I have over ten years experience teaching students of all ages, and I enjoy working with each student individually to build on their strengths and help them develop in the areas they find more challenging.

An EMMY-nominated film composer, I also teach songwriting for students interested in composition. Lessons are tailored to each student, incorporating a diverse mix of classical and contemporary repertoire and a practice plan that
addresses each student's needs and musical goals.

Drawing upon my extensive background as a performer in music and theater, I encourage students to take creative risks, to be expressive, and above all, to play with joy! All students have the opportunity to share their progress with family and friends during fun, low-stress, semi-annual recitals. (Participation is optional but highly encouraged!)

Teaching Materials:
I use the Faber and Faber Piano Adventures books as a foundation, but also incorporate other music, including classical, pop and theatre music, depending upon student interest and what I feel will best help my students to stretch and grow! Students are also welcome to request pieces they would like to learn; I will do my best to find or create an arrangement that's appropriate to your current skill level.

Allison taught my son from the ages of 6-12 and my daughter from the ages of 5-8. She was great with the kids--always patient and friendly--and they both were very attached to her. As well, she taught them both how to play piano and music theory, which I thought was great. While she followed a set of piano books, she also was always willing to find them sheet music versions of songs they liked at a level they could play, which really helped to keep their interest high. Allison is a terrific teacher and both my children loved learning with her.
