Reviews for New York guitar theory instructors

Josh is a wonderful guitar teacher! In the first few lessons, I noticed considerable improvement in my guitar strumming technique. He makes song suggestions that are fun to play and target your weakest areas. Josh is knowledgeable about music theory and can break down concepts at a basic level for beginners. I’m very happy with the progress that I have made and hope to be shredding in no time.

Anthony is the reason I am finally learning guitar AND ENJOYING its addition of balance and relaxation to my life. I tried for several years with YouTube videos and one other teacher in NY, but the motivation waned. I've been excited to come to weekly lessons for 6 months with Anthony. He has an unusual combination of extreme skill and extreme humility and warmth. My parents are both professional classical musicians so even though I am a beginner in guitar I appreciate his skill. Also, they have commented that I am making great, steady progress and that the accompanying theory I am learning is very sound. Anthony is flexible, allowing me to learn the songs I want to play for my newborn and my husband, and adjusting them for my level, while working theory in between, always making it fun and laid back. I've lived in NYC 11 years and he is one of the nicest people I've ever met. This guitar teacher is a find -- a true diamond in the rough of manhattan!

I have been working with Dom for about a month now. I am a self-taught guitarist that wanted to take the next step and incorporate theory and go from playing songs to actually create my own. Also I am out to improve my skills to get me better. In just the month, I am learning to read music and playing songs while incorporating the theory I really wanted on to my lessons. Dom really cares about his students and is very interested that I become a better guitar player. As a result, he is consistently pushing me out of my comfort zone and leaving with challenges to work on in the form of songs, exercises, etc. I can easily say that I am having a blast and I am always looking forward to our next lesson. I highly recommend Dom, he is a great teacher and a great person.

I’ve been playing for ~10 years and have worked with countless instructors during that time, but Angelo is in a league of his own. I started taking lessons from him about a year and half ago and can honestly say I’ve never experienced such rapid improvement. As an instructor, Angelo has a natural ability to identify areas you need to work on and crafts every lesson around your personal development. He offers a wealth of knowledge that is valuable at all skill levels, from beginners who are just starting to advanced players who are ready to dive deep into music theory. Angelo always makes sure that each lesson is taught at a digestible pace. He shows up with fresh material, but never hesitates to slow down and review if you’re still struggling with something. His warm personality and patience creates an environment where it’s comfortable to ask questions, so I never feel pressure to move forward with the lesson until I fully grasp the exercise at hand. Lastly, Angelo pays close attention to your musical interests and brings material that you actually want to learn. As a result, I’ve been playing more often and learning faster than I ever have before. With 30+ years of playing and 15 years of teaching under his belt, Angelo’s resume pretty much speaks for itself. He’s a fantastic musician, which makes him an inspirational instructor. Another quality that really sets Angelo apart is his seemingly endless knowledge of music from all genres and cultures. If you show him what you’re listening to at the time, he’ll share the history and influences behind it. Angelo taught me how important it is to understand the story behind the music, because that will ultimately help you shape your own sound on the guitar. Over the past year and a half, Angelo has opened new doors of creativity by introducing me to new artists, genres, and even books about musicians—all of which have made an enormous impact on my playing and desire to learn. Needless to say, I would HIGHLY recommend taking lessons from Angelo. I can’t stress enough how influential he has been on my development as a musician and I very much look forward to working with him in the future.
