Larry Del Casale is a wonderful and talented instructor! He has a great approach and is very patient and encouraging with my 8 year old son, who has been taking private acoustic guitar lessons with Larry for the past 6+ months. Larry makes my son feel comfortable, confident and capable in his ability to play. And since Larry is a professional, his lessons are not just limited to the music – he also teaches the Art of Music. I would highly recommend Larry Del Casale.!Sep 24, 2018Verified
Like many people I've fiddled around on the guitar for many years but wanted to learn to actually play the instrument. I've been working with Larry for about three months and have progressed further than I would have in three years on my own. Larry combines a good mix of technical instruction and emphasis on musicality and provides a relaxed environment for lessons. He is very flexible and I would highly encourage him as a teacher for anyone trying to learn to play the guitar.Apr 16, 2018Verified
Larry is excellent!! I have been taking classical guitar lessons with him for close to a year now, and he’s the best instructor I’ve ever had. He has the perfect combination of passion and knowledge and passes that along in an easy and intuitive way. He tailors my lessons with a combination of technical focus along with the music I love, therefore teaching me how to be more musical. Larry has given me the ability to learn this beautiful instrument on a deeper level and I will always be grateful to him for that. I highly recommend Larry Del Casale to any prospective classical guitar student.Oct 8, 2018
My 13 year old daughter, Alessandra, has been taking guitar lessons with Larry Del Casale since Summer 2012, so a little more than 4 years. He integrates theory, technique, and passion together in a way that made her progress at an amazing rate. I think Larry is one of the reasons why my daughter loves and enjoys playing the guitar so much.Nov 30, 2016
Luckily for me I got Larry from a referral of another music teacher when I stated “I want to get back into learning to play Classical Guitar.” I have been delighted that I have Karry as a teacher. He is professional, responsive, attentive and still performing. It’s been great!! Ivelaw Carrington Retired music teacherOct 8, 2018

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Yes, I do. I break up an hour lesson accordingly: $40 for 30 mins. $50 for 45 mins, and $65. for 60 mins. Unlike others, I charge per lesson not in advance, a pay as you go policy. This allows the student the flexibility with both their time and money. I offer bi-monthly lessons for many students who need more time to practice and/or work at their jobs.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Initially I prefer to speak with the customer and "zero in" on what type of music they want to learn. I do this because it will boost a new students' confidence once they can play the music they enjoy. This confidence propels the student to learn and play more.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?My training in Music is extensive. I hold a BM in Music and Performance from The Mannes College of Music in NYC. I hold two Masters: M.M in Music Educ. Hunter College (CUNY) and an M.S in Supervision and Admin. Baruch College (CUNY). I hold, NYS Certification in Music Educ. K-12. and 32 years of teaching Music in Public schools. I am now retired from Public school teaching.
