    Christopher of NYC in home lessons prepared our 13 year old daughter for a successful and confident audition at LaGuardia high school. Christopher has a professional background and is focused, dependable, flexible and patient. She always looks forward to and enjoys her lessons and at the same time has improved her acoustic guitar and vocal style greatly in only one years time. What a great talent, we highly recommend NYC home lessons.

  4. #4 Dom Minasi

    (37 reviews)

    Brian G.

    I've been taking lessons with Dom for about 3 months and I can definitely say that my playing opened up. As a guitarist whose been playing for 5+ years sometimes you get this plateaued feeling where everything you play feels unfresh and dated. Taking weekly classes with Dom has helped challenge me(showing me that i don't know everything) as well as change my perspective on music and guitar playing. All those who hire him prepare yourselves to look at your guitar confused for a quick second ,but it will all make sense once you spend time with the material. Enjoy and always strive and prosper.

  6. #6 David First

    (30 reviews)

    Liz N.

    David is a fantastic teacher. I came to him with a difficult task. I had to learn how to play guitar well for a performance, with 2 weeks to prepare. I had no previous guitar experience. He not only taught me patiently, he also helped me put together compositions for the show. He truly went above and beyond as a teacher. He is extremely attentive and very adaptable to what you want as a student. I liked him so much I continued with lessons after the show!

  9. #9 Guitar and Improvisation Lessons in Kingston, NY

    (7 reviews)

    Darryl J.

    I am seeing Alvaro for guitar lessons. I've been playing for many years, but never had the training or clear understanding of what I needed in order to achieve my goals. 2 lessons in with Alvaro, and he has determined my primary areas for growth and provided me with an achievable goal for each subsequent lesson. Alvaro is wonderful to work with, patient, and shows a genuine enthusiasm for what he does. I would highly recommend Alvaro to anyone looking to bolster their musicianship.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Chris Conly Music Studio

(5 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

I love meeting and working with new people, new ideas, different tastes and learning styles. New students always bring fresh perspectives. New songs and styles always bring new challenges.

I love putting my ideas out into the world and seeing the difference they make when they mean something to a new student. Creating is one thing, and teaching is quite different. I love bridging the gap between them.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

As a creative musician, I've always been forced to improvise within the circumstances I'm presented with, both in terms of music and business. I've always had an entrepreneurial spirit ever since the first dollar I made busking on the street or playing a fancy wedding in high school. Since then, I've never felt the need to work for someone else because I'm confident that I can figure out how to make it happen for myself.
