Charles, the teacher, strikes just the right balance between teaching me things every guitar player should know and letting me decide what to learn. Since I started taking lessons as a beginner one year ago, I've improved, learning finger-picking technique, soloing, new chords, and much more. Charles is extremely motivating, we study together the songs and adapt it with respect to my skills and also to be more personal. He is very professional, responsiveness and dedicated to his students. He is a great teacher, fluent in many styles, has a thorough knowledge of music theory, and keeps classes fun and very interesting. If you're looking for a warm, friendly and professional class to learn to play the guitar, this is where you want to go.Mar 18, 2018
Guitar Lessons (for adults)
I think what I've realized so far with my lessons with Charles is that he's a really good communicator, and he also makes adjustments very quickly. It's pretty clear at this point that his method to teaching is not a 'one size fits all', but more of it is driven by where the student wants to go and what they want to accomplish. He then molds the information to that framework in order to get the most mileage out of the lessons. I would highly recommend for someone who wants to get better, and have some fun in the process.Sep 16, 2015VerifiedCDubU Music - Guitar's reply
Thanks, Ryan! I'm thrilled with the progress you've made over the last 4 months - you're absorbing not only the technical skills but also how to capture the "soul" of the music. The things you asked to learn are right at the top of my list of "what goes into making a good guitarist" :) so it was especially satisfying for me to develop your personalized program, and it;s particularly rewarding working with you towards your goals. I can already see that you're going to be a great player before too long!
Charles is very patient and quick to see where your understanding of guitar is and gets on your level to help you grow. I strongly recommend him!Nov 27, 2018
Charles is one of the nicest guys you'll meet. He has an upbeat, friendly attitude, and is also a fantastically skilled musician. I get so jealous when he illustrates a concept on his guitar with such ease. As a graduate of a music conservatory, I think Charles' level of musicianship is on par with musicians and instructors I've had in my prior training.Apr 6, 2018
- Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?I'm thrilled to part of Billboard Magazine's new Chord Club studio facility on New York City's Upper East Side. I was selected to teach their first ever Guitar Jam Classes, and we've been doing 6 classes a week for kids ages 5 through 12 this inaugural semester. Its an exciting concept facility with a top-flight staff, and its a wonderfully rewarding experience to help the Chord Club fulfill its mission to provide young people with a well rounded preparation for a future in the music business.
