Seth J

Instruments:

I am a devoted and passionate instructor with lots of experience in various genres of music.  I have been teaching adults and children for 15 years and in the last year have been teaching Suzuki Method with children aged 3 and up.  I have performed all over the United States, Europe and Asia in a wide range of settings from solo classical guitar in Paris, to the North Sea Jazz Festival in Rotterdam, to the Big Wig hip hop festival in Singapore. My private students range from 3 year-old beginners to seasoned professionals wanting to take their playing to the next level.

Vincent T

Instruments:

       I have studied with several professional, performing musicians, but most of my learning has come from books, magazines and listening. Listening is, quite simply, the best teacher you can have, provided you do it properly. I have played music since age eight, in school bands, jazz bands, blues, and rock bands. I also have written songs since age 10, and recorded numerous cd's of original music in various styles. I am currently the frontman in the Jersey Shore Blues Rock Tribute Band. I also play solo piano at hospitals and nursing homes. I work music as a full time job, and have never had a second thought about being a musician. I have studied numerous instruments and musical styles, as well as writing, recording, performance, history, criticism and theory.

Gus S

Instruments:

I am a full time musician and music instructor who loves working with students and sharing my passion of music, my experiences and my achievements. I am a professional recording artist who played shows all across the country, opening for national acts and international ones as well. I have been teaching in the Fairfield county (Greenwich, Stamford, Darien, Westport, Rye, Portchester) for the past 10 years.

Robert P

Instruments:

I studied guitar with international performing artist Anna Maria Rosado and composition with American composer Annette Le Siege.  I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Classical Guitar Performance from New Jersey City University.  I have performed extensively in small venues throughout Vermont, and was a house musician for several seasons at the Yosemite Theater in Yosemite National Park, California.   

Chantilly W

Instruments:

Hello!   I'm a singer, songwriter, and music teacher from Brooklyn, NY.    I have a formal musical education, with a degree in composition from Purchase College, (Regina Spektor also graduated from this program!), 6 years of experience as a solo performer, and worked extensively in recent years on writing songs, and releasing recordings (my producer plays keys for Ingrid Michaelson!)

More Information About Guitar Lessons

For younger students, it is recommended that they use a half size, or three-quarter size acoustic guitar. Provided they are able to hold it comfortably, older students may wish to start out on an electric guitar. A reasonable price for a new student model guitar would be between $150 - $200, although for electric guitar players, an amplifier and guitar leads/cables will need to be bought separately at an extra cost. The higher the quality of the instrument, the easier it is to play. This will make learning and playing more enjoyable for the student.
Save time by having a teacher come to your home! No need to pack up and transport your guitar between lessons, and no need to guzzle gas either. Our teachers provide a private, customized one-on-one lessons for each student, and your home will be both a comfortable and safe environment.
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.
Whatever your current ability level, we recommend that students wanting to take guitar lessons have a clear aim in mind. Maybe there is a song you have always wanted to be able to play? Or maybe you want to develop your songwriting skills? Whatever your goals may be, our experienced teachers can help you achieve them with expert knowledge. Whether it be learning to play a sequence of chords, jamming a cool riff or mastering that guitar solo, developing the required skills and co-ordinations can take time. Taking regular lessons and practicing on a daily basis is the best way to achieving your goals.
At Musika, we offer guitar lessons to students as young as 6 years of age. Students in this age category will start of by learning to play simple tunes on the top strings of the guitar. It is most comfortable for students of this age to start off by playing a half sized acoustic guitar with nylon strings. 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 (usually rock) and decide to learn on a full-sized electric guitar.
