Introduction: Hi my name is Sean Ronan! I am an experienced music teacher with 10+ years of professional career behind me. About Sean R. I am an electric guitar player with a history of touring the country playing rock, blues, country and jazz styles. I graduated from William Paterson University with a bachelors in jazz performance. I have had the opportunity to play on many records and play with many amazing musicians. My students range in ability from beginner to advanced. I currently am in a number of bands in the NYC area. Currently I am only offering only online lessons. I work with guitar players in a wide range of ability. Some are beginners and some are professional as well. I can help your prepare for an audition or if your just getting into music I can help you too. I am fun and will always insure the lessons are stress free and productive. Some of the musical styles I regularly teach: Rock, Blues, Jazz, Funk, Country, Classical, Soul, R&B *Lesson Details* My students will gain the following techniques from consistent lessons. Techniques- Picking, strumming, finger-style. Improvisation How to create an interesting guitar solo Learning songs to develop a good foundation for future skills. Music theory I mostly focus on learning songs rather than boring exercise. You will get more out of learning a hard chord progression or lick than learning an unmusical exercise. Hope to hear from you soon about lessons!

Guitar Lessons

We’ve been doing guitar lessons for at least a month and we’re LOVING it. Our daughter’s progress is steady and Sean is great with teaching her to play songs and training her on the technical aspects of playing the guitar. Training remotely works out perfect since we can get a lesson in from anywhere! Sean will be highly recommended to friends and family that want to learn and master the guitar!

Guitar Lessons

Sean is an excellent guitar teacher who tailors his lessons to meet your needs. I was self-taught just using tabs/Youtube for a number of years and Sean has been extremely helpful and knowledgeable in answering every question I could think of while helping to clear up some of the misconceptions/bad habits I've developed from years of going the self-taught route. Sean goes above and beyond by hand writing out the licks/scales covered in his lessons and he really takes the time to understand what you're looking to get out of the instrument so he can mold his lessons around that goal. No matter what level you're coming in at, I can't recommend Sean highly enough!

Guitar Lessons

I had been playing guitar for 4 months, before taking lessons with sean, and the guitar notes still sounded a little bit off. A couple lessons with Sean and i can hear the difference in sound. He's very patient and positive in his lessons, highlighting what's going well and the specific areas that can be practiced. He also explains the chords, rhythm, and music theory beyond what we're doing, and how certain rhymes frequently shows up in pop, rock, country, and reggae songs. I would recommend Sean to friends.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    $40 30 min $50 45 min $60 60 min

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    For a begginner I will start by showing them the basic parts and names of the instrument. I will show you easy songs to get you PLAYING lesson number one! Rock songs like "Smoke on the Water", "Eye of the Tiger", "Seven Nation Army" are good to start with. I’ll ask what my students are interested in too so we can set goals to work towards. I can help students who are looking to learn casual songs as a hobby or more serious players who are looking to push themselves to a new level.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I went to William Paterson University and majored in Jazz Performance. I play electric and acoustic guitar. I can play many styles such as rock, pop, jazz, blues, country, and folk. I am a full time musician and guitar teacher.
