Techniques and theory to get you grooving in any style. Work on general concepts, specific tunes or both.

About Luke
I majored in music at Berea College, then went on to The University of North Carolina School of the Arts, where I completed a Masters degree in guitar performance and served as the graduate assistant to the guitar department.

For the past ten years I have earned a living performing and teaching guitar. I am a certified Suzuki instructor, and I've held teaching positions at Winston Salem State University and the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, along with at least half a dozen other schools and institutions. I've been featured on other artists' records, and received a grant to release an album of my own songs. I regularly perform in a wide variety of bands and ensembles.

I love to teach, and over the years I have taught hundreds, maybe even thousands of lessons. Having learned something from each and every one
of my students, I am now at a point where I excel at honing in on the individual interests and learning styles of whoever comes to me for help. There are many ways to learn guitar. The best one is the one that engages and inspires you the most. That said, there are also music fundamentals that we all need to know. My joy as a teacher lies in finding a way for you to master the fundamentals while at the same time following your personal bliss and intuition. We plot the course together, combining your curiosity and enthusiasm with my years of experience.

I also love working with kids. While they are having fun jamming, I discretely provide them with the technique and musicianship they'll need to excel in any musical environment, whether it's conservatory study or playing in a great band.

*** Lesson Details ***
Your enthusiasm is the key to your success, so my lessons are tailored to the interests and abilities of each student. That said, my classical background and dedication to effective teaching inform everything I do.

All of my students learn Music Fundamentals:
-Technique (habits of movement)
-Theory (how music works)
-Aural skills (hearing pitches, chords and rhythms clearly)

Many of my students use books. There are hundreds of great books these days, and I will work with students from any book they choose. Listed here are the books I regularly use. They all deliver great results:

-Aaron Shearer "Leaning The Classic Guitar"
-Will Schmidt and Greg Koch "The Hal Leonard Method"
-Joe Pecoraro "Read This First"
-David Oaks "Music Reading For Guitar"
-William Leavitt "A Modern Method For Guitar"
-Mateo Carcassi "Melodic and Progressive Studies, Opus 60"
-Leo Brouwer "Simple Studies"

Many of my students prefer to work without a book, and that is a great option too. These students learn scales, chords and theory and develop a repertoire of songs. I will show you how to play any song you'd like to learn. You can also work on writing your own songs or compositions, or improvising in any context, be it jazz, blues, Indian raga or flamenco.

Singing is also encouraged!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Home studio: music stands, extensive library of all kinds of music, great sound system and ability to stream any song, several guitars, recording equipment, footstools, keyboard and percussion instruments.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I'll bring my guitar and books, accessories as needed.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in versatility. I regularly play gigs doing classical, jazz, blues, rock, pop, and world music. All of these genres have a place in my heart, and I've devoted years to learning to play and teach them well.

I am equally polyamorous when it comes to the various things musicians do. I love to sing pop songs, dissect jazz lines, delve into expressive groupings with classical pieces, drill scales and arpeggios, you name it. Reading, improvising, composing and notating, transcribing and playing by ear, memorization, classical technique, blues technique, bluegrass technique, theoretical analysis... hit me up for any of that, or whatever else interests you.

About Will
I teach guitar, drums and vocals to an array of students ranging from 10 to 60. Not only do I teach but I also write songs for certain students who have a desire to perform their own music as well as learning and honing their craft on their instrument. I am currently helping a vocal student of mine write some songs after scales and warm-ups and am working with one of my top guitar students tomorrow on different scale techniques. I just placed a drum student in the finals in Alternative Press Magazine's Hit Like A Girl competition. She was the top vote getter with 1,026 votes and is in the top 10 under 18 drummers in the world. I am also working with more and more students on songwriting and showing them different chords and ways to go about writing a song. I would love to get started with you as soon as possible and we will get you where
you want to be musically. I find that if a student has a particular song or a rhythm pattern they want to learn they learn more quickly. They're learning and having fun at the same time. We will find what you want to learn and we will get it down! Furthermore, it's your choice if you would rather come to my place as a lot of my students do or have me come to your place as a lot of them do. I look forward to speaking with you! Cheers!

*** Lesson Details ***
I will get you started depending on your skill level. I usually, of course, see where we're at there and then decide what needs to be taught. With each respective student I usually make them a CDR the lessons for you so you can take them home and improve on what we've worked on.

*** Studio Equipment ***
recording equipment; guitars (acoustic & electric); bass guitar (electric); upright bass; maracas; egg shaker; cowbell; tambourine; PSR 170 64-key digital keyboard for the voice lessons.Yamaha DT Explorer for drum lessons

My son enjoys his music lessons with Jonathan, who is infinitely patient teaching what can be a challenging instrument. My son responds well to Jonathan's instruction, and he appreciates having access to a professional performer as a teacher. Jonathan encourages my son to learn a variety of music, including both challenging classical pieces and more recognizable popular and jazz pieces, which helps to sustain his interest in the lessons.

I am an experienced bass guitar teacher with 10+ years of professional career behind me.

I'm looking for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of good playing habits (learning the right songs that you makes you a better musician!). I specialize in rock, jazz and funk. I use some of my own transcriptions and the ones I acquired from Berklee College of Music, and also have the following tools available to use during lessons: sound recording equipment, sheet music, and more.

Let's plug in that guitar and play some smooth bass lines :)

About Akos
Hi there and thanks for stopping by.

I'm a bass player and electric guitar player with a history of touring around the world playing rock, funk and jazz styles. I graduated from Berklee College of Music with Bachelor's of Music in Professional Music - Bass Guitar, and am currently teaching and playing music professionally. My students ranging in ability from beginner to professional. I tend to focus on making sure my students learning experience is stress free and fun (most importantly)

Currently, I play in a number of bands in NYC and record with bands in Europe (Serbia - Hungary)

I can teach my students comfortably in my home teaching studio in Crown Heights, Brooklyn or I can travel to students house for extra charge. I work with bass player and guitarist in a vide range of ability, some are beginners and I have some who are
professional as well.

Some of the musical styles I regularly teach: Rock, Blues, Jazz, Funk, Soul, R&B, Classical.

Also online lessons is also available upon request by student.

***Lesson Details***

My students will gain the following from consistent lessons

Bass Guitar:

Techniques -

Slapping, Popping, Playing with Fingers vs Playing with a Pick
Improvisation
Creating interesting bass lines
Learning songs in order to have a good foundation for future development.

I tend to focus on learning songs instead of learning "boring" exercises.
You get more benefit from learning songs and working on a difficult groove or phrase rather than spending a lot of time playing non musical exercises.

***Equipment***

I have 5 Bass Guitars, 1 Electric Guitar, 3 Keyboards (NORD, KRONOS, MIDI CONTROLLER)

I have recording devices which can be used to record the lesson and get it in your email after our meeting, so you can go home and really listen to my comments again and learn more!

Hope to hear from you and start learning some good music!

We all love the gut kicking bass that we can't help but have involuntary movement when we hear it done right. I've played bass for over 30 years in the studio and touring all over the US, Mexico, and Central America. I can teach you how to play with seemingly effortless technique, how to create unforgettable bass lines, how to improvise solos, how to slap, tap, 2 hand tap technique, and bring thunderous energy into your playing venues! I look forward to speaking with you soon

About Shon
My Name is Shon M.

I was raised in a family that has a tradition of passing the art of music down from generation to generation. I began playing at age 5 and I play 5 instruments professionally and 15 instruments in all. I studied music at Morehead State University and Musician’s Institute. I've been a touring and studio musician since the age of 16. I have been teaching music for more than 35 years. Many of my alumni have gone on to become professional musicians and teachers themselves. My approach to music education is somewhat unique, although it is gaining popularity in the mainstream of music education. I view music more like a language, as opposed to what some have called more of a data entry approach. Don't get me wrong, reading music is important and I do it everyday, but your music lessons should be teaching you how to play a
n instrument, not spending the majority of your time in learning to read right out of the gate. Yes there basics you must learn, but when you were a child, you didn't learn to read as you spoke your first words. You were learning to speak your language long before your learned your ABC's. There are many musicians with little formal training who play an instrument so well you'd swear you can see smoke coming from their fingers. Let me tell you, they weren't born that way. They learned to speak the language of music. The fact is, it's so much easier to learn to read music, after you have a basic understanding of how to speak the language. So say good bye to the frustrations of banging you head against the wall with the complexities of reading music and wondering how much longer you're going to have to endure this ongoing torture before you learn to play something cool, and say hello to having fun while learning how to play an instrument and the songs and styles you want to play...

You may have studied music before and given up because it was too difficult. Please know that's not uncommon. But I’m here to tell you, there is a better way! So if you've ever wanted to learn to play an instrument or sing, there is no better time than now.

My piano/songwriting lessons with Shon never got off the ground. On one occasion he showed up 30 minutes late and left me waiting forcing me to cancel due to another appointment. The following week he cancelled literally teo minutes before our session was due to begin, saying he was sick. Then the following week he left me waiting and didn't show up for our scheduled session at all. When I emailed him he said he is overwhelmed with his new work schedule, won't be able to do our lessons and that I should get a refund.

I had even agreed to change my day/time when he said it would be better for him, only to be let down.

What a complete waste of my time and energy. Incredibly unprofessional and inconsiderate conduct.

I wish I would have started with Shon along time ago. I am fairly new, and he is very good at being patient with me but still allowing me to progress quickly. Lessons are packed with content, and I leave with "homework "to work on so by the time the next lesson comes around I have learned a tremendous amount. Two thumbs up !!

I’ve been teaching and playing bass guitar for a vast majority of my life. Having studied for many years I know the approach that one must take to learn how to play and I have a structured way to lead an aspiring bassist to a deeper understanding and appreciation of the instrument. Whether the student wants to pursue playing as a career or just as a hobby I cover all the topics that they need to know to pursue their interest while having fun doing so. Some of the topics covered include: technique, groove, playing with drummers, learning music, gigging, scales/apreggios, practicing, playing different genres, etc. Lessons are fun and engaging and are catered to the students interests and needs.

About Alex
Hello! My name is Alex and I've been a professional bassist for the past 15 years. I have enjoyed learning the instrument and have strived to be as versatile and educated as possible, not just on my principle instrument, but in music as a whole. I graduated from the Jackie McLean Institute at the University of Hartford and moved to New York City to continue my career and studies. Since moving to New York I've been hired to play at some of the cities biggest venues and various festivals around the country and the world. These venues include the Blue Note, The Cotton Club (Tokyo), Blues Alley, Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola, The Jazz Standard, Minton's PlayHouse, Joe's Pub, The Iridium, and that's just to name a few!

I've loved teaching for many years and have gained experience leading programs for different age groups. My teaching credentials
include after-school and in-school programs for kids from ages 10-18 and also various workshops as a private clinician at the University of Hartford, University of West Virginia, and many different public and private high schools in the states of Rhode Island, New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. In conjunction with these credentials I've also worked for organizations such as Jazz House Kids, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Arts By The People, and am currently director of the BackCountry Jazz after-school music program. I get great joy from teaching and working with students of different levels and ages and I always take extra care in making sure that all the information being taught is organized and that the student has fun and learns at their own pace. Making sure that the students understand the information and know how to apply it in a real-life playing situation is one of my main goals as a teacher.

Many of my former students have told me that when studying with me they're constantly learning and deepening their knowledge, most of the time without even realizing it. This is because I enjoy using real examples of the music that I suggest to them, or that they themselves are listening to, to illustrate what I am teaching, and how they can use it too. I hope this gave you some insight into my lifelong journey as a musician and I sincerely look forward to meeting you and showing you via online or in person what I can do for you and how anything is possible with a great teacher!

Pax and I are so very grateful for Jonathan. He is the best piano teacher and role model for my son. Pax looks so forward to his visit with him each week. Jonathan is a knowledgeable, energetic and a fun teacher who imparts good techniques and at the same time instills a lifelong appreciation of music.

His dedication and passion for his gift inspires you to see music in a completely different way. As a vocalist, Jonathan taught me how to interpret the music in my head onto paper and opened the door to an improved relationship with my fellow musicians.
