I took weekly guitar lessons from Matt Kass for six years when he lived in Philadelphia. Matt focuses on teaching you the music you want to learn to play and at a pace that is comfortable to your level of proficiency. He combines instruction on the fundamentals of playing a guitar with the basics of music theory so that lesson time is spent not just on how to play the guitar by why particular chords or notes work together and their relationship to the different modes of the major scale. As a professional musician, Matt is thoroughly knowledgeable about the guitar and music in general but is incredibly personable, thoughtful, reliable and friendly. He is able to tailor his teaching approach to your individual needs and helps you progress at a pace that is appropriate to your skill level. The thing that impressed me the most in Matt's teaching ability was his patience and willingness to help me around obstacles or plateaus in my playing ability. You feel that he is fully invested in your learning and shows a willingness to try different approaches to helping you succeed. I would highly recommend Matt as a guitar instructor. He is a terrific teacher and an excellent musician.

Beginner piano lessons. Camee is friendly and low stress! Lots of fun and I've signed up for more lessons.
I have been taking guitar lessons with John for two months now. He is very knowledgable in all sorts of styles of guitar. He has been able to teach me exactly what I need for a guitar certification for graduate school. He is patient and thorough in teaching techniques and methods in classical guitar. Thanks, John!
Jonathan is a fantastic teacher. He takes time to learn about you and your musical taste and then generates the lessons accordingly. I have seen tremendous improvements thanks to him!
Matt is my son's guitar teacher and band coach. Matt is awesome! My son and I adore him. Matt really connects with his students through an approachable style and great sense of humor. He is truly interested in their success. Matt is experienced, enthusiastic and creative. He helps my son choose the type of music that he is both interested in and that suits his playing style. This makes lessons fun and productive. With this kind of support and guidance, it is no surprise to me that my sons band won The Battle of the Bands two years running. Bottom line, Matt is a wonderful and trusting person and an amazing teacher and a mentor for my son.
I've been taking guitar lessons with Dan for a couple months now. I have been played piano since I can remember, and always wanted to learn how to play guitar, but never got around to it. I can say I'm definitely getting more comfortable and confident with it after a few lessons. I like that he doesn't just teach you basic chords, but also really gets into finger picking and intricate exercises as well. On top of being a great teacher, he's such a friendly and inspiring human being. I would highly recommend guitar lessons with him!
Very knowledgeable teacher, takes the extra time to ensure you understand the lessons. Great experience so far.
Our son loves his guitar lessons and his teacher. He has improved his skills, and the staff take a genuine interest, not only in his musical development, but in him personally.

I feel that I have a knack for style, and helping people find what they really want out of music. Of course, if you're just starting, learning the mechanics of the instrument is the most important. But your instrument is really just an extension of yourself, and you eventually want to play how you feel. Its an extraordinary thing!

I provide piano and keyboard lessons. I have a background in classical and other styles of music such as pop, rock, blues, funk, jazz, country, worship, etc., which includes many years of professional performing and studio recording. My method of teaching would include reading notation as well as numbers (based on music theory which would enable one to play more by ear and improvise, as opposed to only reading notes). It all depends on what one would most desire to learn as everyone is different regarding his/her learning needs and level of playing/expertise. I am over 50 and have been playing since age 5, and have a concert grand piano (Yamaha C7) as well as other electric equipment (keyboards) to enhance the learning experience.
My daughter takes guitar lessons from Keith. She's 10 and pretty shy but Keith is very patient. He has taught her about new genres of music and new musicians. He encourages her to bring in things she wants to learn. She enjoys her lessons a lot and has discovered a talent she didn't know she had, with Keith's gentle, encouraging direction. She has enjoyed it so much she's inspired her sister to take lessons from Keith as well. In addition, Keith is phenomenonally talented and sometimes he plays a little after her lesson is over, and that's always a treat!
Danny is an excellent teacher! He has a vast amount of knowledge of so many elements of music. He has introduced me to new harmonic concepts that I didn't know existed; extremely helpful ways of thinking around improvisation; and so many different, exciting, and original techniques like "harp harmonics", slap for guitar, chord tapping, etc. He listens to what the student wants to learn and gives relevant homework/advice and music to listen to for inspiration. I would recommend Danny to anyone no matter what level they are at!
