Great personality and knowledge of music, really makes the lessons very personalized, fun and interesting. Definitely a good choice!!

Perry takes the time to explain flamenco and related styles deeply and thoroughly. He also provides detailed micro-scale feedback on hand/arm placement, orientation, range and which muscle groups to engage. But more than the technical, he has an awesome vibe and makes learning guitar quite an enjoyable experience.

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Acoustic guitar is one of the most flexible instruments for accompanying yourself; you can be as simple or complex as you want, allowing you to give lots of characters to your songs. Making the songs you play have YOUR unique style and sound is what we’re after, so we’ll learn not just the basics of guitar, but we’ll learn finger picking and alternate chord voicing, and alternate tuning (and every other trick we can use to make our sound more colorful). I play primarily worship songs on acoustic, but we’ll incorporate some music from other genres as well to develop new skills.

This guy is awesome. Robbie is passionate about teaching & really understands how to motivate. He holds you accountable to practice on your own time so you can learn quickly. I highly recommend taking lessons from him if you're serious about learning.
Nick
Robbie is a phenomenal instructor. I love taking lessons from him. He is so kind to identify where I am weak but also encourages me that I can get better. He is so easy to approach with any question or concern that I may have. Because of his character and humility, I want to show up every week for my lesson. If you are a beginner or have been playing for a while, I would HIGHLY recommend Robbie. You will not be disappointed.
McKenna
Robbie is not only talented but highly knowledgeable and skilled. He’s a fun, laid-back teacher who will still hold you accountable. The best thing is that he truly believes that you can learn and grow and inspires you to reach your goals! Highly recommend.

Great 1st lesson and covered a lot in only 45 minutes. Very knowledgeable and professional. Looking forward to some practice time and my next lesson with Riley.
Sharla
Event after more than 13 years of guitar instruction with Riley, there is always a new technique or song structure lesson to learn. He knows an incredible amount about music, performance, and (to be honest) living a good life. He is an inspiration to me both musically and personally, and his enthusiasm for both is unmatched.
Eric
In my opinion, I have very little natural talent for music. I hadn't played an instrument with any proficiency in the past. Well, I had played air guitar and guitar hero before, but neither of them really prepared me for actually playing a guitar. Sometimes I'd sing in the safety of my commute to work, but that's about it.

Riley helped me pick a guitar, gave me a book, and play along recordings. He had me playing classic chords in about two lessons. I can now read guitar music and have come up with some of my own tunes. I wasnt a very good student at first, but I showed up for my lessons. Just that took me a long way until I actually wanted to practice and really started to enjoy my guitar.

I was missing something in my life - all I did was work, eat, and sleep. I hadn't considered music as an outlet. My wife just signed me up one night and then told me I was going to learn something new. I was kind of mad at her at first (and hence my resistance to practicing), but I'm really glad she did that for me - and I thank her every time I play guitar.

Riley is great - he has a ton of patience with me. Considering that he went to one of the best guitar schools in the country (MIT/GIT), and can pretty much play wherever he wants, this really shows how much he loves to teach. Riley can play the obscure tune, pop, metal, classical guitar (he's got me on Beethoven now), and he even played yngvei with serious proficiency. The man has mastered the guitar and wants to teach. He is a working musician, and has had gigs every week that I've known him. He understands the music business, so he can give sound advice if you want a music career. So far as lessons go, it's just a matter of practicing what he tells you. There is no guitar, amp, or pick that can make you sound better. But Riley can.

I wish I (or my wife) had signed me up a long time ago. Best money I spend each month. Anyway, I better get back to practicing.

From the very beginning of how to get a sound out of the guitar to playing songs/solos and melodies in various styles.

About Nadav

Hi there, My name is Nadav and I have been a professional guitar player and teacher for most of my life now. I have a very extensive experience playing festivals and venues in the U.S and abroad and have been teaching beginner and advanced guitar/bass and musical ensemble classes for 15 years.

Bill T.
Speaking from the standpoint of a colleague of Nadav’s for many years and professional musician/educator myself, Nadav is the real deal. He is my top recommendation, without question, for anyone looking to study the guitar and/or music in general.

Nadav is an extremely gifted and skilled musician, composer, and bandleader with very deep understanding of playing the guitar. He has the experience and versatility to so in a multitude of different styles ranging from R&B, Pop, Funk, Jazz and Ethiopian groove music (check out his incredible band: Abbess Orchestra). He is also extremely kind, has a gentle yet “matter-of-fact” demeanor and is the consummate professional.

For anyone who has interest in learning the guitar and needs an instructor, no matter their experience level, it’s impossible to go wrong with Nadav. Just check him out and sign up!
Eran
I was a self taught guitar player since a very early age, so when I met Nadav for the first time I already knew many songs and chords. But my technique was a mess.
Nadav helped me establish a healthy and meticulous practice routine that fixed my technique very quickly.
I would recommend him as a teacher for every level.
Randy
Great teacher with good vibes! Nadav showed me great ways to practice harmony and soloing on the guitar. Highly recommended.
