Featured Haworth Guitar Teachers

Conrad D

Instruments:

I was introduced to music early on by my parents. Being classically trained on the piano I started playing and writing songs at the tender age of seven. My early piano influences are Mozart, Beethoven and Gershwin amongst others. Growing up, I became even more influenced by Pop, R&B, Funk, and Rock artists from the likes of  Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson and Prince. As a teenager in high school, I performed recitals and played in rock bands, and picked up the guitar and drums to broaden my music repertoire.

Yvan S

Instruments:

I'm a fun and unique instructor who is both classicaly trained and self taught.  I studied music in school, but taught myself how to play guitar.  I graduated from Baruch College and the Institute of Audio Research, and I have been a professional musician for over 10 years and an Audio Engineer for the past five.  I truly learned how to be a musician by performing around New York City as a solo artist and with my band.  I learned most of my stagecraft at the legendary CBGB's.

Carlos M

Instruments:

As an instructor and professional musician, I teach and motivate my students to develop their skills and expand their musicanship. I graduated from Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College, NYC, with a Master of Music. I'm very fortunate to have the opportunity to play with many extraordinary musicians here in New York City and around the world. I'm passionate about music and I love to teach students how to focus their passion for music into a finely honed technique.  

Tucker F

Instruments:

I am a active teacher, performer and composer in the greater NYC area. I love teaching and performing every chance I get so I can share my love of music with whoever will listen! In 2014, I graduated from Rutgers University with a Masters of Music degree in Jazz Guitar Performance. I have performed all over the east coast with many different groups and styles. Some highlights of my performing career have been playing in New York City with master jazz drummer Victor Lewis, and jazz saxophonist Ralph Bowen. I have also had the oppurtunity to perform with many different pop groups like The Drifters, The Skyliners, American Idol's Adam Brock Band among others. Recently I have let several groups including my original jazz group called the Tucker Flythe Quartet at Somethin' Jazz club in NYC, as well as a soul, funk, and rock and roll review band called Timi Kendrix. While doing all of this, I have also maintained an active teaching studio with as many as 30 students.

Scott B

Instruments:

I am an internationally touring guitarist and songwriter based in Queens, NY who is as passionate about teaching as I am about playing. In 2002 I received my BFA from the prestigious conservatory at SUNY Purchase where I studied jazz guitar performance, studio production techniques and songwriting. Since then I have made a name for myself as a full time guitarist, bandleader and music educator across all music genres with performances throughout North America and abroad. I am currently enrolled at Vermont College of Fine Arts, from where I will receive my MFA in Music Composition in 2016.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

Smaller guitars are easier to play for younger students. It is recommended that young students begin by learning on a half sized or three-quarter sized acoustic guitar. Older students could start off on an electric guitar, as long as they find it natural and comfortable to handle. It is possible to get hold of a brand new student model guitar for around $150 - $200. For those looking to play electric guitar, remember that an amplifier and cables will be needed, which will have to be purchased separately. A student will likely enjoy their playing, the easier it is to do so. In general, the higher quality instruments are nicer and easier to play, which will contribute to the students enjoyment and development.
Musika specializes in individually tailored, one-on-one guitar lessons in the comfort of your home. Whether your child learns in the studio or at home, the quality and content of each lesson will remain exactly the same. Home guitar lessons reduce the burden on parents to transport their children and equipment to their lesson, which saves time and money and helps to integrate lessons into busy work schedules. Musika prides itself on creating fun, engaging guitars lessons in an environment that students feel comfortable and familiar with - important conditions for their musical development.
At Musika, our teachers create lessons plans that are specifically customized to meet the needs of each individual student. Our experienced teachers can develop the skills of a complete beginner, or help to take an advanced players skills to the next level. Students can expect to learn such things as; how to correctly hold the guitar, learning the notes on the fret board and how to tune their instrument. Students will also learn techniques such as fretting, fingering and strumming, and will learn to play various scales and chords, such as open chords, power chords and barre chords. They will learn how to combine these elements of guitar playing to create or cover complete compositions, as well as learning music theory and how to read music. Last but not least, our teachers will help students to realize the joys and fun that learning to play the guitar can bring!
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.
At Musika, we recommend that the earliest age in which students start to take guitar lessons is about 6 years old. A nylon stringed, half-size classical will be the easier and most comfortable for younger students to play. In this age group, students will learn to play simple songs on the top strings. By the ages of 7-8, students can start to form chords and play and sing along to some of their favorite songs. For students in the 10-12 age bracket, they are likely to want to learn how to play rock music on an electric guitar, and should be comfortable playing a full sized guitar at this stage.
