Guitar Lessons in NY/NJ

You can study with me at my studio in Jersey City, NJ or your home in the New York/New Jersey area! As a guitar teacher, I have worked with all ages and skill levels since 2004. So whether you're a beginner, intermediate or advanced player, I can give you the tools to be the guitarist you want to be.

Levels:
All levels are welcome.

Ages:
I teach students of most ages. I've also been enjoying teaching kids (usually age 6+).

Styles:
Pop, Rock, Blues, Funk, Jazz, HR/HM and Classical. After learning fundamentals and basic techniques, you can learn to play any song that you love.

Additionally, I have worked with many students to prepare for high school and college admission, and auditions.


Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. If you're ready to sign up, please email me to discuss your goals and schedule the first lesson!
