Featured Abington Guitar Teachers

Lisa T

Instruments:

I started playing piano as a young child in a small beach town in Southwestern Michigan.  I was always involved in church choir, bell choir and school choirs.  From the time I was 15, I knew that I wanted to use music to help people.  I began pursuing a degree in Music Therapy at Western Michigan University, where I studied piano with Lori Sims.  Upon graduating with a degree in music therapy, I began working as a music therapist on an inpatient psychiatric unit where I worked for 9 years with adults. Simultaneously, I taught piano lessons, Kindermusik classes, and provided music therapy to children at a local music school in Michigan.  I also have experience in providing group music education and movement classes to homeschool students.  I pursued a Masters of Public Administration in Healthcare degree and moved to the Philadelphia area to pursue a new career in that field.  Still with a passion for music, I plan on teaching piano lessons and music education for many years in the future.

Pete O

Instruments:

In-demand NY session musician, teacher, and musical director Pete O has studied with many of the world’s top bass players. In addition to his independent studies at Berklee Music school, Pete has had the pleasure of studying with industry legends such as Victor Wooten, Chuck Rainey, Anthony Wellington, Adam Nitti, and Matt Garrison. Pete’s highlights include opening the Gathering of the Vibes festival in upstate New York, featuring James Brown, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Gov’t Mule, and the Allman Brothers. After his recent appearance on Fox Television's "Huckabee," Gov. Mike Huckabee, a bass player himself, remarked "You did such a great job. You should give me some lessons on the bass!"

Matthew M

Instruments:

I worked various summer jobs and saved up to get my first guitar when I was 12 years old.  My friends and I started a band during the first week of middle school and I've always played in a band of some sort since that day.  In 2004 I graduated from Drexel University with a Bachelor of Science in Music Industry.  Since then I've been teaching guitar for over 10 years while releasing a number of internationally distributed albums and touring the world. 

Vince T

Instruments:

I am a trumpeter, multi-instrumentalist, and composer/arranger in the Philadelphia and New York regions. My primary instrument for the past 16+ years is trumpet; I also regularly perform on assorted brass, electric bass, and vocals. I hold a Master of Music degree in Jazz Performance from the University of the Arts; and a Bachelor of Science in Music degree concentrating in Jazz Studies and Theory & Composition from the State University of New York at New Paltz. I have appeared on many albums during the past few years including my own debut solo album. I continually perform, arrange, compose, and record original music. 

Benjamin C

Instruments:

Teaching music is an integral part of being a well-rounded musician. I have been teaching music privately and in group settings for nearly 10 years. In 2014, I graduated from the University of Miami with a Master of Music degree in Studio Jazz Writing. Music has given me opportunities to play and teach in many parts of the country and overseas as well. In 2010, I attended the Keep an Eye summer jazz workshop at Conservatorium van Amsterdam and premiered original works at the Blue Note Amsterdam. In 2011 I spent three weeks in Accra, Ghana creating and implementing a music program at a local Montessori school.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

It is beneficial for young students to start off by playing on a half size or three-quarter size acoustic guitar. Older students who can manage to hold their guitar comfortably may wish to use an electric guitar. A brand new student model guitar can be purchased for between $150 - $200. Amplification and guitar cables will need to be bought at additional costs for those wanting to play electric guitar. Students who enjoy and like playing their instrument will develop faster, so it is important to try and buy high quality instruments as these are typically easier to play.
Musika offers one-on-one, in-home guitar lessons that are designed specifically for each individual student. Whether your lesson takes place in the studio or at home, students will get the exact same lesson content, with the only difference being the location. Parents will find home guitar lessons a much more convenient option for their child, as it saves the time and costs of transporting their children to and from the studio. Younger students will find that learning to play the guitar in the comfort of their own homes greatly benefits their development as they are learning in a supportive, secure and familiar environment.
At Musika, we appreciate that every student learns at their own pace. As such, our experienced teachers produce customized guitar lessons specifically for the requirements of each individual student. Our teachers can design lessons for any student, regardless of their age, experience or ability. Some of the things students can expect to learn during their lessons are; learning all the notes of the guitar, playing and rhythmic techniques such as fretting, fingering and strumming, how to read musical notation and tablature, learning how to play a variety of different chords, such as open and barre chords, and music theory. Over time, as each student progresses, they will learn how to piece everything they have learned together, in order to form complete compositions. Students can learn to play their favourite songs, or even to write their music!
Whatever your current ability level, we recommend that students wanting to take guitar lessons have a clear aim in mind. Beginner students may wish to learn to play a few of their favorite songs, or an advanced player might like to work on a specific aspect of their guitar playing. Regardless of your goals, our experienced Musika teachers can help make them happen. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced student, achieving your goals will take time. Developing the necessary skills can sometimes take months. The only way to ensure you achieve your goals is to dedicate yourself to lessons and practice.
Students aged as young as 6 years old are able to start taking guitar lessons with our expert teachers here at Musika. For students of this age, we recommend that they start by using a half-sized classical guitar with nylon strings. They will learn to play simple melodies using the top strings of the guitar. By about 7-8 years old, students will be forming different chords and playing along to their favorite songs. When students get to about 10-12 years old, they may become interested in a specific genre - often rock music - and decide to learn on a full-sized electric guitar.
