Private Guitar Teacher

I taught beginning guitar through a local shop while in college. I have a strong background in reading music notation, and prefer to teach classically. We begin chord development at the intermediate level when students can read the chord in music notation. Finger style and jazz are personal favorites of style.

Private Guitar Teacher

I have been playing guitar since I was 14, and have been performing and teaching for over 20 years.
I studied jazz guitar, composition, and theory at the Mannes Conservatory in NYC, NY., and also with several private teachers.
I teach many styles, including rock, pop, blues, folk, and jazz.
(I do NOT play classical or flamenco.)
I tailor my lessons to meet the interests and learning styles of my students. I teach playing by ear, music reading, tablature, and theory. I enjoy teaching students of all ages - children, teens, and adults.
I make lessons fun for young children, by including some musical games and activities. With teens and adults, I have the students choose the songs and styles they wish to work on, and go from there.

About Linda

I have been teaching music (guitar, bass guitar, keyboard, banjo, mandolin, ukulele, recorder, music theory, and classes for toddlers, preschoolers, school-aged children, and adults) for over 20 years. I am also a band/show director at the School of Rock! In addition to teaching music, I also tuto

so happy I chose to have Linda as my teacher ! she's patient with me (a beginner who does not always have time to practice regularly) and is super helpful with giving me tips and advice on how to be better. Linda can also play ANY song and has helped me learn tons of my favorites. We're working on Annie's Song right now and Linda has helped me not only understand how to play the notes but why we play them a certain way (heck yeah music theory !)

Linda is great. I left with a big smile on my face!
Dan T.
Linda is awesome. After 3 lessons I'm getting pretty good at a couple of basic rolls and have a song to work on. She is patient and knowledgeable, and has helped me get basic technique going. So far so good.

From performance, to writing and recording, to music theory, your lessons will be catered to EXACTLY what you want. Beginners will be up and playing songs within a few lessons. Experienced musicians will learn to go deeper into music theory and chordal structures. Most students choose a mix of categories (live performance). Just let me know your goals, and we will achieve them!

Great teacher. He has patience and so much knowledge. Lessons are going well, I've made more progress in 3 meetings than I did in months with my previous teacher.
Jessica
My son had his first guitar lesson with Daniel and he LOVED it. He's asked me every day since if we get to go back today. This is an incredible win for me, because he never wants to go anywhere that doesn't have video games.
Kristin L.
I've been really struggling to get myself back into playing seriously. I was so nervous reaching out to ask for help, but signing up for lessons with Dan is seriously the best decision I've made! He's got a great approach, really pushes you to believe in yourself, which is huge for me!

He's professional, easy going, and easy to get in touch with, but he's also holding me accountable. Something which I definitely need! Just all around a positive experience!

Private Guitar Teacher

I am a graduate from Berklee College of Music with a degree in contemporary writing and production and work professionally as a composer. Guitar was my first musical passion and it has brought me to where I am now. I would love to be able to share my knowledge of the guitar, music theory, and composition with all of my students. I primarily play jazz, rock, and pop styles, but I am able to play and teach any genre. My goal as a teacher is for my students to be able to achieve their musical goals and have fun.

After only a few lessons with Jack Ive already seen incredible growth in my own playing. He has unlocked a new view on the guitar for me by explaining the music theory behind many guitar exercises and drills Ive been playing for years.

Fast Track with me on Acoustic or Electric Guitar & Learn a "Real Song" you heard on the radio on your 1st LESSON!I teach you a REAL rock, pop or country song that YOU want to learn. I teach individuals guitar lessons and tailor each week's lesson to Pop/Rock/Country songs you have heard on the radio and that you truly want to learn and practice.

For pure beginner students, I don't waste time on outdated guitar lesson books or "Mary Had a LIttle Lamb" or drilling you on scales that you don't need to know YET.

Let's play a song together! Schedule a lesson now here.

About Daniel

What makes my lessons unique is I always cater to the student and help find new ways to teach to ensure that their goals are reached. On top of teaching how to play, i can also teach and prepare students for touring and tour prep, songwriting, studio advice, gear info, and help create specific practice routines to help out with whatever the student is in need of.

"Jeff is a great teacher who helps you learn the guitar step-by-step with lots of great tips!

I started to learn guitar from Jeff when I was in the 5th grade and I have never regretted it. He has helped me improve so much that I can now solo off of songs and dissect popular songs to learn by myself. It's always so fun to play guitar with him, and he is always encouraging. He also teaches at my home which is really convenient. I always look forward to lessons to show him how I have improved. He is also really funny and entertaining. He has a lot of knowledge on guitar and music in general. Guitar has been a big part of my life and so has Jeff. I owe him all my thanks for teaching me how to enjoy and utilize the guitar beyond just learning chords and progressions."

"Francesca is a teacher's teacher. (And, yes, I'm a teacher.) ;-) I am truly impressed with how she communicates with and engages my son. He started guitar lessons in February--now, a few months later, he is playing every day and learning new techniques at every lesson. She has also taught him how to teach himself--to explore and go beyond the hour a week they have together. He loves it. I never have to remind him to practice. He even had the confidence for play for some visiting family members last week. Even though Francesca is an extremely busy musician, performer, and teacher, when she is giving a lesson, she is completely focused on that learner and their needs. I am grateful we found her. <3 Francesca!"
