    Mr. Lewis has been my daughter's guitar teacher for over a year and I can't believe the progress she has made both playing songs she enjoys and learning about the theory and structure of music. Son is very patient and understands that kids are just loaded down with distractions and other obligations and he always asks her about her soccer and her schoolwork so she understands how important they are too. He is very polite and always on time and both my daughter and I are very happy with him.

    Sonny has been teaching my Son aged 10 for about 8 months and comes home every weekend for lessons. My son is really comfortable around him and he is picking up guitar really well with Sonny. Sonny's has a way of motivating my Son to do better. He is also picking up new music to listen to and is genuinely interested in explore different sub genres of music due to Sonny's influence. Sonnys is always punctual, unfailingingly polite and pleasant to deal with. He is a great guitar teacher.

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
It's $45 an hour and you pay for one month in advance. It's simple, really...
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
First we talk about the student's goals and objectives and get an idea of what else may be going on with their weekly scheudule... that way I can best prepare a customized approach to learning and not over-burden the student.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have been teaching guitar and bass to beginning and intermediate students for over 45 years. I stay on top of current musical trends and sonic quality of modern music so I can present lessons they can translate into the styles they wish to play.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I just love teaching and helping people create art from within themselves.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Beginning and intermediate guitarists and bassists of ALL ages, primarily local in Northern NJ. My youngest student is 9 and my oldest is 54. It's NEVER to late to "make music".
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
Scoring the movie "Love In A Coffeeshop", The Son Lewis Blues Band, The Hostiles (a hard rock band) and The Elderly Brothers (an Oldies Tribute Band)...I am also working on a new solo compact disc for Silk City Records
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Make sure you are 100% comfortable with the person and that your teacher understands your goals and objectives in wanting to lear to play.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Performing is fun but the preparation, the travel, the set-up and break-down are exhausting parts of the job. We play for free... it's the rest of the profession that we get paid for.
