Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I have a B.M. in jazz studies and performance (guitar) from William Paterson University, which has a world-renowned jazz program. Though I studied jazz and classical music academically, I also have a background in rock and play and teach a wide variety of styles including: rock, pop, jazz, R&B, classical, blues, and more. I have over 15 years of professional performance and teaching experience. I help students unlock their full musical potential by developing personalized lesson plans that I build according to the students interests, goals, and favorite artists/songs. Lesson plans are based on a structured order of songs to learn which take the student through beginner to advanced levels of playing, ear training, proper technique, and musical concepts/music theory. This keeps the focus on the songs and having fun while ensuring that the proper musical knowledge is being transmitted to maximize musical growth. Of course, if any student wants to focus more on the technical side and delve deeply into a particular area, then we will certainly do so. Beginner to advanced instruction offered in the following areas: Guitar Drums Harmony Reading Music Technique Composition/Songwriting Improvisation (Blues, Rock, Jazz) Ear Training Fretboard Study Music Theory Rhythm (Odd-meter, polyrhythms)

My son loves his sessions with Rich. He had never even held a guitar and now he’s playing songs and practicing on his own. He’s patient and encouraging and we are grateful to have found him.

I’ve been working with Rich for a few months now and have been seeing a lot of progress! He really knows his stuff when it comes to theory and proper technique. He’s also given loads of help with practice routines and exercises. He caters to the wants of what I want to improve on at the time and helps guide me to my goals. Thanks Rich!
