I knew nothing about music except that I loved listening to it since I can remember, Upon my retirement from education and at the encouragement of my 7 year old grandson who was taking guitar lessons, I also began guitar lessons with Eric. In the few months that I have been his student, Eric has demonstrated his superior knowledge of music, outstanding ability to teach using a variety of methods as well as much patience. I highly recommend Eric as a teacher to anyone wanting to learn about music and how to play guitar.

Antonio taught me formal electric bass lessons from 2003 - 2006 at Studio 63 in East Brunswick, New Jersey. He provided me with an incredible musical foundation to build upon my own strengths as a musician. Antonio has an excellent ability to sense a student's needs and effortlessly blend them into the lesson at hand; whether it be theory, rudiments, or a song of the student's choosing. To this day I still apply many of the fundamentals that I learned under his instruction. He is a teacher who cares for his students and is truly passionate about music, and it reflects in his lessons.

David Joel is the guitar teacher that you have been looking for! Musical experience, wisdom, and expertise are just a few of the things you should expect when you start lessons here. My experience with other guitar teachers was always that they were more interested in making rocking guitarists who could play some nice licks but never really knew why what they were playing sounded good or how it fit into the larger musical spectrum. David will not only make you improve as a guitarist, but he will help you see the bigger picture, making sure you have a solid foundation of musical knowledge and expertise before learning more advanced techniques and theory. The result is a guitarist who can play those amazing licks and riffs incredibly proficiently, but also understands why what they are playing sounds great! It truly is the best way to learn to play, and guitarists from beginners to experts can learn a lot from David's teachings.

I describe myself as an "intermediate beginner" on the guitar -- that is, I know a handful of chords, have a decent sense of rhythm and can "fake it" pretty well. I went to Adam to help me learn how to play properly and get to the next level. He met my expectations and then some... Adam was quick to size up my capabilities and he worked with me, at my pace and with my input, to help me improve, demonstrating techniques and offering advice that opened up many new possibilities for me. He also provided access to some great training materials and websites that have been invaluable as I work to be a better musician. I especially appreciate his willingness to help me sharpen up and make more compelling several tunes I've written, adding mini-riffs and flourishes that enhance the songs in a big way. Adam is talented, knowledgeable and easy to work with, and I recommend him highly.

Daniel is a patient fun teacher! My daughter is 7 and asks a lot of questions, Daniel always make time to answer them and gives her encouragement and praise. He is very knowledgable and has given us great advice for the best guitar to purchase. He breaks down each of the lessons in to small chunks which makes it easy for her to remember and practise!

Wow…so Chris is an amazing professional guitar teacher, as well as a highly talented singer/musician; and having looked for about a month for such a teacher I was worried I wouldn’t find anyone with those qualities so I’m quite relieved I finally did. I am a 43 yr old music geek with a childhood background in piano, and came to him highly motivated with many specific goals and guitar techniques I wanted to learn-despite never having played the guitar before. Now, 6 months later, not only has Chris clearly met me at where my skill level and musical tastes are, he is also really skilled at helping me to stay motivated despite the challenging beginner learning curve of guitar. He is really kind and personable, he gives encouraging verbal feedback, and always makes the lesson enjoyable whether I’m learning theory, techniques, or playing. One special talent he seems to have developed is his way of streamlining/editing common guitar methods to instead more applicable real life playing and convenience. He also knows when to stop you from getting way in over your head with too much theory to not hinder your innate creativity-that to me is so important as I am such an info nerd, but he consistently reminds you of the most important goal – which is to learn how to actually play guitar and hopefully-ultimately to create your own music, and so if that is your goal then he can totally help you get there. Thumbs up.

Excellent teacher. Very patient with my son who is a beginner. Unlike most teachers and classes I looked into that offer 1/2 hour lessons, Scott’s lessons are 1 hour or a bit longer each week.

Cameron provided private guitar instruction to my son and daughter in our home. The affordable lessons combined not only technique in acoustic and electric guitar, but also music theory so that a firm foundation was provided to develop well rounded musicians. The result has been that they are now strong performers, accomplished leaders, and creative composers. I highly recommend Guitar Lessons with Cameron.

Tom Ford is a perfect instructor for me. He's accomplished on piano and guitar and can reference one to the other for better understanding. Tom is flexible in scheduling lessons to make it much easier for a person with a tight schedule. He's low key, patient and will review a concept or technique as many times as necessary. I can practice as much or little as my schedule allows and Tom accepts it and works with it. He can articulate or demonstrate something with great clarity and detail - especially the mental aspects of practicing and playing. A no pressure, easy going and enjoyable way to enjoy music instruction.

    I'm a self taught guitarist but about a year ago realized that I finally hit a plateau. I decided to give lessons a try. My first few instructors were really difficult to work with. The best way to describe them would be incomplete either having a lack of knowledge, music, or just unable to clearly teach. Thankfully I did not give up my search and I found Chris Wolf. From day 1 I knew I struck gold. His ability to not only explain things but listen to my individual needs and then tailor the lessons to them is absolutely unmatched. He's extremely patient, very enthusiastic, and unbelievably knowledgable. From music theory to just music in general he always has an answer that exceeds your expectations. I've been taking lessons for about a year now and I can't even describe how much more of a complete musician I am thanks to his unwavering desire to make me better. Whether you are a beginner or an intermediate guitarist like myself Chris will take you to a level you've dreamed about. He is not just an elite guitarist but an all around elite musician. He's not just another guitar instructor. He is a true mentor. If your looking for the all around package look no further. Chris Wolf puts the music in musician.

    I have been taking piano lessons from Mrs. Sherry for about 5 years now, and I took about a year of the music theory labs and voice lessons. I couldn't ask for a better teacher. She is so hardworking, flexible with lessons, organized, and not to mention an excellent person and great friend to me. She teaches beginner students as well as advanced students such as myself. I have just started to teach a beginner student of hers and it has been very good experience. There is also great opportunties for students to have good experiences with the studio because Mrs. Sherry has phenomenal recitals that any of her students are encouraged to perform at. I very highly recommend having your child take lessons from her.

    About

    I give kids the beginner tools to get them on their way to playing the guitar and singing. I enjoy working with children from all ages, and I believe that making it fun is the first step to engaging young students in positive practice habits.

    About

    I teach the basics of guitar, notes, chords, tuning and anything you want to learn. I want you to learn how to play in the style you enjoy the most. Guitar should be fun, and I try very hard to teach in a way that is easy, and that most people can learn from a no-pressure environment. If you've ever wanted to learn, I will show the road to get you there and make it an easy, no-pressure and hopefully fun experience.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
