Peter is a great teacher. He finds what your level is and goes from there. Peter finds what kind of style of learning best fits you.
For me, when Peter is playing the drums or Piano after he has given me the structures/scales makes it very easy to learn. Very patient and encouraging. Ask yourself- Why aren’t YOU taking lessons with Peter?

Perfect. He matched his lesson beautifully with the music I like and how I am likely to learn quickly. Could not ask for better.

I took around 15 lessons for bass guitar with James and really enjoyed it. James was able to tailor the experience for what I wanted, which was heavy on music theory, but still made sure we applied the theory to the instrument. I had prior experience with some music theory and playing, but hadn't touched my bass in almost 10 years. James was able to figure out exactly where to pick up, provided great materials, and kept me engaged. James is very knowledgeable, a great player, and a cool cat.
Tom
James is a highly qualified instructor and was very thoughtful in answering my questions. I was impressed with the amount of resources he had on hand, such as worksheets, method books, sheet music, etc. I would definitely recommend James for anyone curious about learning music theory and/or the many instruments he plays.

Dan is one of the kindest, most patient teachers I've ever worked with. His music background and talent are extensive and you couldn't find a better person to learn any instrument, whether you are an adult or a kid. Highly recommend!
Britney
I'm so glad I chose Dan as an instructor to learn guitar. If you want someone who's professional, fun to work with, and knows his stuff, Dan is the teacher for you.
Christopher
At first, I was a little nervous to take guitar lessons online. I wasn't sure if they would be as productive as in person lessons. But after working with Dan all those nerves went away. His easy going approach and the ability to play seemingly every instrument makes him an ideal teacher for any musical discipline. Do yourself a favor and book a lesson with Dan.

First of all, I want to know what are the students wills and objectives in music. Understand why they want to learn music and what are their interests. This is a major thing to me, to know the student. After that, I work my way by giving the student material that will improve their skills and knowledge. This can be done by several methods (classical, Jazz, etc) that I have or by assignments that I will create in order to solve specific problems. I also want to focus on specific music interests that the student have, by giving repertoire and musical examples that will motivated them.

About André

I'm a motivated and good listener teacher who loves to see his students accomplish their objectives. I have a Masters degree in Jazz from the Manhattan School of Music and a Bachelor in Classical Double Bass from the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna, Austria. I'm a active musician, bo

"Knowledgeable, encouraging, patient, & prompt.

Having come from a very small musical background Nathaniel was extremely helpful in laying down a solid foundation for how to play the guitar and how to view music in general. Nathaniel clearly has a deep understanding of musical theory and performance. His lessons are structured around what you want to pursue, but at a pace and with material that is challenging, fun, and rewarding to complete. If you are looking for a teacher that is serious about music, experienced and poses the ability to help you reach your musical goals, whether that be increasing your aptitude with an instrument or studying complex theory, I would strongly suggest Nathaniel."

"We were so lucky to have been referred to Tommy. Our middle school son wanted to branch out from playing the upright/classic bass, to electric bass and acoustic guitar. Tommy worked with our son for nearly 2 years. Tommy was always reliable, always prompt, always polite and 100% committed to the music and to our son's personal progress & improvement. He was always flexible, upbeat and easy to work with...with the patience of a saint...esp. for the parent who knows nothing about guitar. A huge talent!"

"There is no doubt this teacher knows the guitar inside and out. Nice balance to class- theory and playing. Fun and challenging. He delivered class work and homework in very doable measures. He made himself available for one free half-hour one-on-one class with each student with the individual needs of each student the targeted goal. I would take another guitar class with this instructor if it were offered."
