Featured Haddonfield Guitar Teachers

Elijah L

Instruments:

I began playing drums at the age of 9, guitar at 10, started my first rock band at 11, and I've never stopped playing music since.  After playing in the concert band, jazz band and marching band in high school, I went on to Temple University where I earned my Bachelors degree in Jazz Performance on the drum set.  Since graduating in 2006, I have been teaching both drums and guitar professionally all over the greater Philadelphia area.

Carolann F

Instruments:

Starting viola late in high school was a big decision for me. My parents had told me I was not allowed to start violin as a child because it would be "too hard". Once I started playing, I hit the ground running. I decided about a year into playing that I wanted to teach music. I went to Susquehanna University and majored in Music with a Music Technology minor.  There, I participated in the string pedagogy program. This involved weekly teaching seminars and being paired with nearly 20 students throughout my time at Susquehanna. I participated in regular violin festivals by teaching group repertoire and theory classes. I also had the joy of being a counselor for the Williamsport Symphony Youth Orchestra Summer String Festival. Another fond memory is conducting for a new pilot project called SU strings. I have played for the Susquehanna University Orchestra, The Williamsport Symphony Orchestra, The Reading Pops orchestra, as well as countless quartets, a rock band for a nightclub gig, and as a solo artist for musicales, a recital, and on many, many other occasions. I absolutely adore teaching and teach students of all ages and backgrounds!

Michael B

Instruments:

I am a knowledgable musician who enjoys teaching classical guitar, electric guitar, bass guitar and musical theory. I graduated from Bloomsburg University in 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts in Guitar Performance. During my time there I performed in the annual guitar ensemble recitals, honors recitals and my own senior recital.

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.

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.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

Young students will benefit by starting off playing on a half size or three-quarter size acoustic guitar. If an older student finds it comfortable enough to do so, they may wish to begin playing on an electric guitar. There are many different student model guitars, which can be purchased for between $150-$200. Additional costs will be incurred for those wanting to play electric guitar, as amplification and cables will need to be bought. Consider that higher quality instruments are easier to play, and will increase the chances of the student liking it.
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.
Students typically start with the basics, such as how to hold the guitar, how fret notes with the left hand, and how to strum or pluck the strings with the right. Teachers will cover sight reading, guitar chords, and basic music theory, all of which are needed for students to perform and understands the inner-workings of their favorite songs. More advanced students can work on jazz improvization, classical technique, or rock or blues guitar solos.
We recommend that older students looking to take up guitar lessons have a clear goal in mind, such as learning some of their favorite songs or learning to write their own compositions. Our experienced teachers can help you to develop the necessary skills to attain your musical goals. Learning any instrument can take time, as you will need to develop your co-ordination and muscle memory in order to start playing chords, riffs and solos. The best and quickest way to learn these fundamental skills is to take regular lessons and practice your guitar playing as often as possible.
Using a half sized classical guitar with nylon strings, students can start to play guitar at age 6. A half sized guitar is easier to hold, and the nylon strings are softer on the fingers than steel strings. At this age, students will learn simple songs on the top strings. Around the age of 7 or 8, students are able to progress onto playing chords. By age 10-12, students can graduate to playing a full sized guitar. Often at this age, students want to learn to play various rock music, and will therefore want to play the electric guitar.
