Guitar lessons can be boring, but not with Steve. Steve's guitar playing its Eddie Van Halen's level and best of all is that he is very humble and a funny teacher. He will take his time to explain you note by note on the entire fretboard. I always have fun learning new scales, arpeggios, triads etc. with Steve. You will actually get exited every time a guitar lesson with him is coming up. A guitar instructor that actually knows how to play pretty much anything on guitar, but if you are into Rock, Classic Rock, Hard Rock, Metal, Jazz and Jazz Fusion, you should definitely take guitar lessons with Steve. - Winston Beast Master (Khiazma band)

Barb's Continuo Home Music Lessons provided home lessons to my son. Not only was the instructor very talented, but they knew exactly how to interact with a young person to keep his interest throughout the lesson and encouraged practicing beyond the lesson. Barb is always prompt and goes out of her way to accomodate scheduling issues.

I’d never even picked up an instrument before and Steve taught me guitar! He’s patient and reliable, and music is his passion so he is very easy to talk to and learn from. Great guy and now a great friend as well! 🎰 Thanks again for everything! -JT πŸŽΈπŸ’ŽπŸ’ŽπŸ’ŽπŸ’ŽπŸ’ŽπŸŽΈ

Tommy has been an amazing guitar, bass, and audio engineering teacher. Recently, we've been working together on some college auditions involving jazz bass, which I knew little of in terms of techniques and terminology. With Tommy's help, I've learned what would have taken me forever, and I feel a lot better about the audition process.

Over the coarse of 6 or so years Chris Schreiner has given me countless one on one bass lessons. Not only is he a personable guy, he always finds inventive ways to help a student succeed; Professionalism (on time, proper equipment, and real life experience), clear articulation (Terminology and Explanations), and positive attitude will not only encourage you but motivate you to do well. His versatility is also a plus. He has no problem catering to peoples musical needs no matter how far out it may be. All in all, great guy, great teacher!

My wife and I hired James to play guitar for the processional and recessional of our wedding ceremony. We had very specific plans for the songs and arrangements we wanted to hear, and James was able to accommodate by learning and tweaking them in a very short amount of time. He communicated with us frequently throughout the process and sent us videos to make sure we were happy with the results. On the day of the wedding, he arrived on time and with the necessary equipment, and set things up with the coordinator/officiant so that we didn't have to worry about anything ourselves. And, of course, he played the songs exactly as we'd hoped, helping to make our ceremony a perfect and memorable one. James, I'm glad you found my listing here, and thanks for everything!

I have been taking drum lessons from Alex for about 6 months. Alex was among three instructors to contact me on Thumbtack and I consider myself fortunate to have chosen him as my teacher. I have been playing drums on and off for over 50 years but I am mostly self-taught. I am currently in a classic rock band and Alex is helping me take my playing up to the next level. His musical knowledge is vast and his teaching style is relaxed but competent. I would not hesitate to recommend Alex to anyone regardless of their level of ability.

I hired Preston for guitar lessons this summer and met with him for three lessons before having to go back to school. Preston is a real chill guy, with an incredible beard and even greater passion for music. He'll listen to your questions patiently (I had thousands) and enthusiastically give incredibly thorough answers that, although sometimes may circle around to a few different topics, always come back around with really interesting insight to boot. Although he's a talented guitarist, probably the best things about Preston are his personality and availability. He and I texted about problems I was having with learning a song or scale, and he would (and still does, actually) email me with exercise suggestions. Great guitarist, better guy. Definitely check him out no matter what you're interested in learning on guitar!

    My son has been studying with Lane for almost a year now, and I cannot believe how much he has improved!! Lane is patient and kind, and makes the lessons so enjoyable. My son is always so motivated and excited for his next lesson, and practices every week without me telling him to! We have also been to a couple of Lane's gigs and he is a very talented player-we are so lucky to have a teacher like him and I cannot recommend him highly enough!!

    About

    I have 35 years of playing in rock bands, on the guitar and the bass. I play classic rock and pop. My specialty is teaching students how to play in a band, what effects to use, how to read tabs as well as how to create the sounds to allow the student to stand out. Beginner, intermediate, and advanced students are welcome.

    About

    I am a professional musician currently working on several ensembles. I have taught private lessons to both young and old. I believe in teaching as a continuation of the learning experience. We learn, we teach, we learn some more and we can do it together.

    About

    I began my study of guitar in 2002, learning from a jazz guitarist who's established in the local music scene. My musical training continued through college when, in 2008, I began studying music at Northeastern University, majoring in music with a concentration in history and analysis. While at Northeastern, I took guitar lessons from faculty and performed in the University's Jazz Choir as well as its blues rock ensemble. Simultaneously, I gained experience in teaching guitar, working at a music and youth initiative music clubhouse. At the music clubhouse, I acted as a mentor and guitar teacher to the under-served youth.

    About

    What do you want to do on the guitar? *Learn songs? *Develop technique? *Improve your soloing/improvisation? *Play more melodic solos? *Write songs? *Scales, theory,.........

How about a teacher that is a friend, a mentor, and a goal setter? If you had the ability to do anything you wanted to do musically, what would it be? Let's set some goals and achieve them! Guitar lessons are provided for learners in the following areas: * Stony Point * Nanuet * Nyack * New City * Pearl River * Orangeburg * Blauvelt * Congers * Pomona
