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.

I did one electric guitar lesson and immediately knew I wanted to pick Marcelo as my instructor. He is very knowledgeable on not just guitar but music in general. He will not only teach you guitar, but he will teach you to be a great musician!

I cannot speak highly enough of my experience learning guitar with Marcelo. From the moment I began my lessons, it was evident that I was in the hands of a true master of the craft. His proficiency spans across genres, and his expertise in jazz, in particular, has been a game-changer for me. What sets Marcelo apart is not just his exceptional skill but also his incredible teaching ability. He effortlessly tailors his lessons to suit students of all levels, making even the most complex concepts understandable. His patience and encouragement have been instrumental in my progress. Beyond his technical expertise, Marcelo possesses an insatiable thirst for learning and a contagious passion for music. This isn't just about teaching the guitar; it's about instilling a lifelong love for music and a dedication to continual growth. His enthusiasm is infectious and has truly inspired me to explore music in ways I never thought possible. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced player looking to delve deeper into jazz or any other genre, Marcelo is the perfect guide. His knowledge, patience, and genuine passion for music make every lesson an absolute delight. I feel incredibly fortunate to have found such an exceptional teacher.

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!

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.
