Michael G

Instruments:

I am a 25 year old instructor with a lifelong interest in music. I began playing guitar at age 14 and am almost entirely self-taught on the instrument. While I earned my Bachelor's degree, I had the opportunity to take American popular music history (dating back to the 1800s), music theory, and piano classes. I also had the opportunity to produce and host my own rock and blues radio show. Currently I'm a working musician who hopefully continues to get as much out of teaching my students as you get from me. 

Andrew C

Instruments:

I'm a professional musician with a passion for performing and sharing my musical knowledge with others.  Coming from a musical family, I have been exposed to a wide range of styles all my life.  I earned my Bachelors Degree from University of the Arts in Philadelphia in Instrumental Performance: Jazz Studies.  It gave me the opportunity to meet and play with some great musicians, and make good friends in the process.  I teach at my home studio or online via skype.  My studio is equipped with amps, stands, cables and a computer set up for listening to tunes.  All you need is your guitar or bass.

Andrew D

Instruments:

 I graduated from Camden County College with a degree in Music and attending Rowan University for three years studying Music. I currently perform with a number of bands and occasionally travel with bands. I have experience playing at several venues in Philadelphia including the Electric Factory, TLA, and World Cafe.

Steve D

Instruments:

I teach primarily guitar lessons. I have been teaching guitar lessons since Jan 2003. I am formally trained, know extensive music theory, and can read (and will teach, if desired) standard notation (a.k.a. "sheet music"). I have played in all kinds of bands for over 2 decades (rock, metal, classic rock, pop, funk, reggae, disco, oldies, and more). I know literally thousands and thousands of songs. Even though there are many guitar players out there with much stronger technical skills and agility than myself, I am honestly one of the best guitar teachers out there. I say this for several reasons: For one, because I have had numerous students tell me that out of multiple previous guitar teachers they had in the past, I was the only one who ever explained it in a way that made sense to them. Also, with most other guitar teachers, they had "natural" talent and it came much easier to them than it did with me, so they didn't have to struggle nearly as hard as I did. So because I had struggled with many of the same things as a large percentage of my students do, I can still truly understand the problem and offer my own insights and solutions to these problems, which other more naturally talented players simply can not do because they never experienced any of those problems themselves firsthand. A third reason is because I have a knack for explaining things, no matter how complex, in very simple terms and break down the seemingly complex stuff into tiny pieces which they can grasp and master. A fourth reason is because I am completely flexible with my lessons, teaching exactly what the student (or parent) wants (them) to learn, anything from the standard traditional approach (i.e reading music) to the rock approach just teaching them how to play their favorite songs, which I figure out by ear on the spot from the recording which the student asks me to listen to. Add to all that, I am very patient, friendly, humorous, approachable and humble/modest in demeanor, where many other teachers have a huge ego and "God complex", where they talk down to the student and make them feel uneasy and overly self-conscious. As I have been a lead singer and studied voice formally for a number of years, I have taught voice on occassion (rock only). But since my voice has not been up to par for some time now, I no longer will teach any voice students.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

It is recommended that young students begin by learning on smaller, half or three-quarter sized guitars. If they are able to hold it comfortably, older students could start off using an electric guitar. A good student model guitar can be obtained brand new for between $150 to $200. However, this price does not include the cost of buying an amplifier or guitar cables, which are essential for an electric guitar player. Higher quality instruments are often easier to play, which provides the student with a much greater chance to enjoy and develop in their learning.
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!
At Musika, we recommend that adult students looking to start guitar lessons have a clear goal in mind. Whether your goal is to learn to play your favorite song, write your own music, develop a certain technique or join a band, our experienced teachers can help you make those goals a reality! It can take time - often months - to develop the techniques and co-ordination required to play the guitar to a good level. The best and quickest way to learn the fundamental skills is to take regular lessons and practice your guitar playing as often as possible.
Students as young as 6 years old are welcome to start taking guitar lessons with our experienced guitar teachers at Musika. Students of such a young age will start learning simple melodies on the top strings of the guitar, as will play half-sized classical guitars with nylon strings. By age 7-8, students will start to learn more complex and challenging songs using chords. Around about the age of 10-12, many students express an interest in learning to play rock music using an electric guitar. By this stage, students are old enough to use a full sized guitar.
