I graduated in 1997 from Western Connecticut State University with a Bachelor of Music degree in Applied Jazz Guitar. I have had the opportunity to produce numerous large scale concerts as well as perform a great deal throughout Connecticut and New York State with world-class musicians. I am very grateful to have something I am so passionate about, and I absolutely love helping aspiring guitarists along their path to success!

Robert K

Instruments:

Nothing makes me happier than having the opportunity to share my love of music and guitar. Upon graduating from Skidmore College in 2000, I was accepted to Florida State University to the classical guitar program under the study of Bruce Holzman. I feel my decision to simultaneously work towards two masters degrees speaks clearly for my motivation and passion towards music. While I focused on music theory/composition for my PhD studies at Louisiana State University, I continued performing newly composed works by graduate composers for the instrument.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

For young beginners, it is suggested that they start their guitar lessons by playing half or three-quarter sized acoustic guitars. Older students may be able to start off using an electric guitar, under the condition that they find it comfortable to hold. A student model guitar can be purchased in the $150 -$200 price range new, however, extra costs will need to be considered for electric guitar players, as amplification and cables will need to be purchased as well. Higher quality instruments tend to be easier to play, which will facilitate students enjoyment and progression in learning to play the guitar.
Musika offers customized one-on-one music lessons at your home - a time saving solution for busy parents and students. The convenience of in-home guitar lessons allows you to save time without having to transport your child to class, allows your child to maximize their busy schedule, and provides a safe and familiar environment in which to learn.
Our guitar students will learn how to hold, tune, and familiarize themselves with the components and notes of the guitar, basic playing techniques such as fretting, fingering and strumming, and learning the various chord-types that they will need in order to play their favourite songs, such as power chords, open chords and barre chords. Students will also get to learn music theory, and will cover such aspects as; reading music, learning different scales, and how to apply these different elements together as part of a full composition. Students will learn the theory and techniques that underlie a wide range of musical genres, and will have fun developing their guitar playing during their lessons. Eventually, students will get to enjoy learning and playing along to their favorite songs!
Whatever your goals may be, our teachers can help you get the results you desire. Most adults want to pick up the guitar and immediately be able to play their favorite songs - this is possible with daily, focused practice. Taking guitar lessons will give you the structure required to steadily progress, no matter if you want to play jazz, blues, rock, classical, or any other style.
Students can start as young as age 6 with a half size classical guitar (nylon strings), by playing simple songs on the top strings. Most students are able to form chords by age 7 or 8, and begin learning how to play and sing along with their favorite songs. Older students will graduate to being able to handle a full size guitar around ages 10-12, which is when many students become interested in learning rock guitar and want to get an electric.
