Barbara is an excellent music instructor. I have had 3 sessions so far and feel like I have learned so much from her. I can't wait to see how much more I will improve in the next 3 sessions. I'm glad I signed up for singing lessons at the Alexander Music Studio!
. It's very rare to a find a teacher like him. My son takes guitar lessons from him and after each lesson I see him walk out of his room with a smile on his face. Nick isn't just a teacher but once you start talking, you immediately become his friend. He always gives my son alot of extra time even when it's not needed and nick always makes sure to make the lessons fun. Not only does he teach scales and technical things, he also builds creativity and appreciation for music. Anyone that uses nick Russo as a teacher should consider themselves lucky to have such an opportunity.
I have been taking banjo lessons from Richard Stillman for a year. He is a patient and inspiring teacher who listens to what his students want and adjusts his teaching accordingly. When I get stuck in between lessons, I can call him for advice. He will record difficult passages online so that you can reference them while practicing. If you want to play a particular style of music, he will find pieces for you. He is also an extremely talented musician and performer, with an impressive list of instruments that he has mastered. I highly recommend him.
I have been taking banjo lessons from Robin for the past year and she is an outstanding instructor. She's very flexible with scheduling appointments and since working with her my skill level has increased exponentially. I picked up the banjo on a whim and with Robin's instruction, it has been a great decision.
We love Rob! He has been teaching our son (now age 12) weekly for 7 years. Our son's playing has advanced at a great pace, and he looks forward to the lessons. A rigid Suzuki style approach wasn't going to work for our son. He would have resisted lessons that felt like mandatory work. Rob has stayed flexible and receptive to our son's interests and strengths so that he can teach him a great deal (technically, but also sneaking in some music theory and history here and there) without our son feeling he's being asked to do something unpleasant. Now our son practices without being asked and finds a lot of pleasure in playing. They've explored a wide range of styles too. Also, Rob is a super nice guy and lots of fun to be with.
A truly amazing guitar teacher
Brian Boyle has learned the tricks of the trade through tireless study of many music styles with the guitar as his focus. His keen ear is informed by his experience performing and composing in a variety of music styles, including rock, jazz, folk and pop. I have been fortunate enough to share the stage as well as work in the studio with Brian on many occasions, and he has never failed to impress me with his musical sensitivity and endless creativity. His curiosity and natural talent is equally matched by his ability to explain difficult concepts to others. I would not hesitate to recommend Brian as a guitar teacher for anyone, of any level.
I took lessons at Dan's Music Studio for over two years. I learned a great deal during that time. I am a better player as a result. Everyone there was helpful and friendly. I hope to go back after I get my degree and return back home. Thank you Dan's!!
Dustin is a great guitar teacher. He is able to translate his vast music knowledge into digestible pieces for his students. I have learned so much from him after just a few lessons.
Steve has been teaching me classical guitar for almost three years now. Our focus has been on the subtleties of technique, understanding theory and "patiently" pushing the boundaries of my skill. My abilities are limited but when I compare the level at which I began learning this instrument to the level I have achieved currently I'm amazed. It was very difficult to find someone in my area to teach classical guitar and although I can't compare him with anyone else - I know I have improved tremendously through his understanding and capacity to teach. Steve's guidance and enthusiasm have kept my frustration at bay and kept me engaged and given me the opportunity to improve.
Great teacher!! Really supports and encourages you when you're struggling the most and adjusts lessons to fit your skill level!
I've had two other fine and seasoned banjo instructors and Pete is my favorite. He is engaged, patient, and earnest in teaching. He instills the balance of discipline and joy that is necessary to progress in learning. I appreciate his knowledge and openness to helping me learn progressive folk tunes in addition to traditional claw-hammer. Pete is a kind, young, and accomplished musician that plays like the best of the old timers! I hope to take lessons with him again when he's in Charlottesville.
I am a well-established, professional 4-string banjoist who tours worldwide. I also teach and welcome students -- both in-person and via Skype, so you can live anywhere! I am located in Manhattan. Briefly, my credits include working with leading jazz artists such as: Woody Allen, Bucky Pizzarelli, Les Paul, Wynton Marsalis, and many others. I headline at festivals and in concert with my bands and as a featured guest, have been inducted into the American Banjo Hall Of Fame, and am proud to have some award-winning recordings. Please visit my website for much more information. If you are looking for 4-string banjo lessons -- i.e. tenor banjo or plectrum banjo, and have an interest in jazz, swing, sing-alongs, theatrical, banjo parlor style, etc., then I look forward to hearing from you! PLEASE NOTE: If you are looking for 5-string banjo lessons -- i.e. bluegrass, clawhammer, etc., then I am NOT the right teacher for you. 4-string involves an entirely different tuning, playing approach, and genre. Thank you and warm wishes!

I combine Country 5 string banjo with Folk, Blues, Bluegrass, Jazz and Rock
I understand music theory extremely well, and i understand which parts of it work best for easily writing advanced guitar parts. I know all the little tricks that make it easy for younger, or very novice players to understand what is being taught and how to apply the information.
We offer guitar and banjo lessons, guitar and banjo repair, guitar building, guitar and banjo sales, and guitar building classes. One-on-one lessons are $30 per half an hour. Take a video tour of my guitar shop at my website.

Folk singer/radio broadcaster Dave Sear teaches folk banjo and guitar for folk singers. NYC West 57th Street and Great Neck, NY studios. Did you ever want to sing and play the songs of Pete Seeger, Woody and Arlo Guthrie, The Weavers, the Carter Family, Doc Watson, Leadbelly, Sonny Terry, Big Bill Bronzy, Joan Baez, Judy Collins, Joni Mitchell, Tom Paxton, Phil Ochs, early Dillon, James Taylor, Leonard Cohen, Tom and Harry Chapin, Don McLean, and the other singers and players of "the great folk revival"? Folk singer/radio broadcaster Dave Sear takes his students through the vast literature of American folk music from the American revolution through today, directed by their individual interests and preferences teaching beginning to advanced techniques on the folk 5-string banjo and guitar, starting with chords and simple strums and then adding bass runs and other variations to make their accompaniments more interesting. All these can be accomplished without a music reading skill, and the average student usually comes out of the first lesson singing and playing a song of his or her choice. These simple techniques can be applied to singing all of the songs sung by the singers listed above. In time, a banjo student can learn to play square dance tunes like Old Joe Clark and Cindy, Southern Mountain model music like East Virginia and Pretty Polly, blues, frailing, double picking, claw hammer, and a raft of other styles. A guitar player can go on to arpeggio strums, two, three finger, and Travis picking, which are all still basic repetitive patterns that can be easily learned and that so many of the singers like Judy Collins and Tom Paxton and others listed above use to accompany their songs. Dave always asks his students to come in with a list of songs they know and like, and the music begins there and grows with Dave pulling from his extensive repertoire additional songs that leaves his students singing, playing, and with a deep appreciation of our country's vast body of folk music and the people who created it.
I offer music lessons for all ages and abilities in your home or my studio. I focus on fun and get you playing quickly.
