Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I started playing acoustic guitar when I was seven years old. I have been playing and teaching mostly bluegrass, old time, Irish, blues, and swing jazz styles for many years. I have taught both privately and have also done various workshops at festivals. I have taught guitar multiple years for instance at the Gettysburg Bluegrass Festival in PA.
My students learn to have fun with music. Students can work on rhythms, melodies, improvisation, song writing, getting into and/or hanging on in a jam session, etc.

About Tara

Great learning experience with Eric.
David
I can't say enough good things about Earl's instruction. He's extremely knowledgeable and talented and yet responsive, inspiring, and kind. Rather than applying a narrow and rigid approach to teaching, lessons are built around my abilities and interests and he has taught me new ways of looking at music and playing guitar. I feel very fortunate to be one of his students.

Great experience! Looking forward to more.

Private Acoustic 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

About Pat

I'm a lifelong musician, with a foundation in classical piano, which I began studying at 4 years old. At 12, I performed at Carnegie Hall. But while I was studying piano, the music of the 60's and 70's was an ever-present influence, and I found myself drawn to the guitar. Players like Jimmy Page, J

I purchased a package of violin lessons with Mary-Elizabeth for my wife a couple months ago for the holidays. She has continued her lessons on a fixed weekly schedule. Here is what she has to say: "Mary-Elizabeth has made learning the violin very easy and enjoyable. She is patient, fun to work with, encouraging, and has a great sense of humor. Even though I had violin lessons before, working with Mary-Elizabeth has made a big difference."

"My lessons with Aaron have been incredible and I highly suggest Aaron to anyone that is trying to start or get better at playing guitar. I’ve been an musician for years and the thing that I’m trying to learn most is how to slow down and practice efficiently. Aaron leads me into the perfect practice patterns for learning new ways to play and also explains why he does what he does. I’ve definitely gotten better at playing guitar in a much shorter time than I thought. I’m so thankful.

Not only does Ahmad know his instrument inside and out with the ability to articulate his knowledge into teaching, but he also knows about record production, marketing, and much more because she's a successful performing and recording artist himself.

"I'd say Kevin is by far the best teacher I've ever had for acoustic guitar. I'm left handed, which require a special technique of instruction. I'm also well up in my years and have always wanted to learn guitar for my own enjoyment. He's patient with me, which is great, and is very fair with the time he provides for the cost. He goes the extra mile to assure I gain confidence and fulfillment with my playing. I have plenty more to learn and I only want Kevin because he teaches in a sincere and meaningful way. I'm going to start singing with my playing and am very excited about that. Kevin is awesome!!! He's genuine. I highly recommend him to anyone, at any age."
