Introduction: ENTERTAINMENT BAND: Services for weddings or other events. We are a network of musicians founded by myself Marcelo Maccagnan, a Brazilian from Sao Paulo living in the great city of New York. We perform in New York greater area and are able to adapt for each individual request the client may need regarding instruments and musical repertoire or special requests. Some of the ensembles we can provide include: Solo Piano, Solo Guitar, Instrumental duo, Instrumental Trio, Instrumental Quartet, Instrumental Quintet, Instrumental Sextet, Singer Combos, Singer and Piano/Guitar/Bass duos among many others. Please take some time to check some of our recordings. We play anything from Brazilian music to instrumental Jazz to Pop. We will provide all equipment and most important, bring joy and energy and make this an UNFORGETTABLE PARTY! Looking forward on hearing from you! TEACHING: Established New York musician. Berklee College of Music Graduate. Have been teaching for many years and know that each student has their own mindset and we need to work around each person`s goals and interests. I teach mainly pop, rock, blues, jazz, classical, funk, RnB. All ages and levels are welcome. *** Lesson Details *** Lessons are very relaxed and we will focus on ways to practice and getting the student to learn what he/she wants. Some people just want to come and learn a few tunes, some want to really learn the instrument and practice all the time. It all depends on the individual and I`m more than ready to adapt for each one of my students with the methods I have. On our first class we will spend some time discussing what are the goals of the student and I will formulate a good plan so we can reach those goals in no time. I usually have 3 main paths that the student can choose. 1st - Learn the instrument enough so you can play your favorite songs and have fun with friends. 2nd(most requested) - Learn the instrument from scratch. Study technique, repertoire, a little of reading and music theory and learn how to improvise. This will allow the person to have their own tools to study on their own after attending classes with me. 3rd - Usually people who have been playing before like this one. We will go deep in music theory, ear training, reading, improvising and technique. Always leaning challenging tunes that will develop the student skills. This one allows the student to follow a professional path on the future, or maybe go into a music college. *Location Classes can be taken online, students location(Brooklyn and Manhattan only), or at my home studio in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. *AUDITION PREP I also help people to prepare for auditions. For this subject, I will tell you how to get ready for an audition. If you are trying to get in a college I have many contacts around the country and know how most auditions work and can help you with any question there might be. For auditions for orchestras or band we can work on repertoire and behavior to get you ready and all set to get accepted.

Guitar Lessons

Marcelo is a super talented guitar player/teacher, and so glad I found him on Thumbtack! He is patient, knows his stuff, and will work with you on helping you learn songs that you actually like or want to learn. I am a new guitar player and didn't know anything really about the guitar, and after one lesson, I started learning how to play a song. He is top notch and highly recommend him!

Guitar Lessons

I've been taking weekly guitar lessons from Marcelo for about 4 months. He's a super gifted instructor and is very pro-student. He's fun, flexible but also takes the craft and art of music very seriously. He's definitely a professional and expert musician. I'm really happy with my progress so far. I'm on my fifth song! I'm so glad I've decided to invest in guitar lessons with Marcelo because it keeps me motivated in my practice and I have a lot of confidence that he'll be able to teach me the best techniques for playing as I get better and better. He's great about giving me helpful feedback and I know that I've gotten better faster because of working with him as opposed to trying to watch videos on YouTube and learn on my own. He lets me choose what I want to play (within reason and the scope of my abilities) which keeps me motivated as well. He's teaching me some music theory as well which is awesome. I would highly recommend him as an instructor.

Guitar Lessons

I've had two lessons so far and I'm really enjoying myself. Marcelo is clearly very talented and a very good teacher. I have no prior knowledge of music and he has been a very good teacher to start at ground zero. I'm sure if you are advanced, he'd be excellent at well--I'll tell you in 10 years from now!

I had an exceptional experience working with Marcelo. He was extremely responsive and clearly very knowledgeable. He gave me his undivided attention during the work session and was dedicated to making sure I walk away with something I’m happy with. Would highly recommend!
