Private Guitar Teacher

I've been teaching guitar for 25 years and my students have gone on to various musical fields of endeavor. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play simple chords and as time goes on you'll be able to play tunes or musical pieces. Every student has different goals ,wants and needs..and it is for this matter that an individual and personal approach is needed to address those musical aspects, which are specifically geared towards their learning the instrument .I use various resources at my disposal: books, cd's, dvd's as well as my many years of experience and knowledge of performing and teaching. I specialize in Jazz and Classical but I'm also knowledgeable in other genres such as pop, rock ,folk etc... For Jazz: I use the Berklee series ,For classical: I use the Matteo Carcassi and Fernando Sor methods .I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Scott is a *fantastic* teacher! My 10 year-old daughter has been taking lessons with him for a year now and her progress has been amazing. She learns how to the play the music she likes, so I never have to push her to practice, and she looks forward to lessons every week. Scott is really great with kids -- patient, encouraging, friendly, and fun. He's very flexible with scheduling, too. I highly recommend him!

Private Guitar Teacher

While teaching bass is my specialty, I've been teaching guitar for 4 years and have amassed quite the collection. The overwhelming majority of my students at the shops I teach at take lessons on guitar, so most of my time is actually spent teaching guitar. In lessons, we'll cover basic chords, scales, and rhythms, as well as some introductory music theory so the student knows why they're playing what they play.

About Tommy

My name is Tommy. I've been playing bass and guitar since I was 11 years old. When I was in high school, I won my school's Duke Ellington Jazz Performance Award my junior year. Around this time I began to work at my neighborhood's local lesson shop Let's Play Music! off of W Broad Street in Falls C

Online Guitar Teacher

I have been teaching guitar for about 15 years now and have taught students between the ages of 6-60 from very beginners to advanced players who want to deepen their understanding of the instrument.

I have an extensive experience playing/teaching a wide array of musical genres and have played numerous stages in the U.S and abroad.

I have a BFA with honors in jazz performance from the Rubin Academy for Music and Dance and have also attended the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music (NYC)

I always try to tailor the lesson to the students needs and musical preferences while keeping core skills that we will try to always incorporate (reading music/ theory for more advanced students, ear training etc.) I'm very passionate about teaching and believe it's imperative as a musician to be able to share the knowledge and experience I've acquired along my musical path.

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.

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.

Nathan is kind and encouraging. My son is enjoying the lessons and making progress towards playing tapas and reveille. He sounds good!! Online classes are convenient to add into a busy schedule.

This is the first lesson I got to listen to of my son working with Nathan. Usually I'm not home from work. I am really impressed with how much he was able to help my son improve so quickly. I wish we had started this much sooner.

"I took beginner's guitar lessons with Alex. He took into account what my playing goals were, stylewise and whatnot. He's super knowledgeable on musical subjects besides just guitar. I've come away feeling that I have good foundational knowledge to build upon as I progress in my playing. I had the five lesson package, which I felt suited my needs. Tip: If you do something like that, space out your lessons at least every other week, so that you have time to practice and grasp what you're learning. Be sure to ask questions if something is new to you, especially if you're a beginner. I highly recommend guitar lessons from Alex!"

"Michael is an absolutely excellent instructor. I am a complete beginner and Michael explains things clearly and succinctly. He went through enough music theory to give me a good baseline to continue learning, but also balanced it with immediate practical skills. After 2 lessons, I'm already working on learning my first songs. Michael is both an outstanding musician and a great teacher."

"I try to teach myself guitar through the internet... and I think it back fired. Rob was able to work with me with my odd mixed background. He has the great ability to work with you and utilize what you already know to help learning new material. We got started by reworking some foundational issue and some music theories. Then we added some finger exercises to build up strength and dexterity. We also set some short term and long term goals to work towards and look forward to. To top it off, he is able to work around my miserable schedule and is very flexible to accommodate my needs. I should have just saved myself the headaches and take some lessons right away instead of trusting the internet (never trust the internet). Highly recommend."
