I started my musical education in a children's choir at age 6. When I turned 8 years old, I began piano lessons. I started violin at 9 and trombone at 10. I am now proficient on the guitar, bass, and piano. Having completed my tour of duty in the U.S. Army, I am currently on the Dean's list as a music/audio production major, and plan to continue my music education until I earn at least a masters in performance and composition. I started my teaching career at Milestones in Music, a local studio, as an independent contractor, where i was able to gain valuable experience and fine tune my curriculum. I am a member of the Grammy U Recording Academy, and have had opportunities to work with a lot of different musicians. (The Recording Academy is the organization that created the most ...
Technique, Phrasing, Tone.
From Bach to Leo Brouwer.
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 ...
I am a husband and father of 3 girls [Elaine, Grace and Emma]. 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 just recently received my Honorable Discharge for 8 years in the US Army and work at The University of Pennsylvania in the School of Medicine. I am currently taking classes at the University of Pennsylvania to finish my degree in Music. I'm very easy going and patient. I focus on technique and music reading skills rather than building 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 ...

I have studied classical guitar at Temple University with Allen Krantz. Lessons would start with Carcassi or Sor Etudes, Tennant techniques and Segovia scales.
I've been playing guitar since I was 9. I'm from Washington, DC originally and have been based in Philadelphia since 2010. Living in such eclectic cities has introduced me to a wide variety of musical styles and has taught me to appreciate them all. I've played in rock, funk, go-go, folk, bossa nova, choro, hip hop and jazz groups and have studied classical and jazz styles at Temple University. I'm still currently enrolled at Temple finishing up a degree in Music Education with Jazz Studies. I've been teaching since early high school and have always loved doing so. My students have ranged from ages 5 to 50 and I've had a blast playing with all of them. *** Lesson Details *** I've taught students in so many different settings and with such different backgrounds that it's hard for me ...
