Hi, I'm Alan. I'm a music fanatic who's on a lifelong quest to share the joys and benefits of music with as many people I possibly can. Having witnessed first-hand the effects music can have on a person's ability to gain confidence, communicate, and engage with the world around them, I see music as more than just a fun thing to do, but as an essential element of building positive communities. Having performed and taught for many years, as well as having received my Bachelor's degree from New York University, I've been able to hone my skills as a musician and have become properly trained to spread my love of music.

I have been teaching music for 45 years and by the time I was 9 I already mastered 3 instruments my last teacher could not teach me any longer because I knew more  than him as he suggested to find another teacher. I love to teach music I even like to manage bands. When I teach you learn and when you learn that is how I know I did a good job. I also teach students how to write their own music.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

It is recommended that young students begin by learning on smaller, half or three-quarter sized guitars. For older students, they may want to start off on an electric guitar - but only if they find it comfortable enough to hold and play. For $150 - $200, a brand new student model guitar can purchased. However, this price does not include the cost of buying an amplifier or guitar leads, which are essential for an electric guitar player. Consider buying the highest quality instrumentation your budget will permit, as the better the quality, the easier the instrument will be to play. This makes learning and playing much more enjoyable for the student, and will therefore help them to progress quicker.
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.
Our teachers create a customized lesson plan for every student, so no two students' lesson plans will be identical. Topics covered during Musika's guitar lessons may include, but are not limited to: learning the notes on guitar, proper fretting, fingering, and strumming technique, how to read music, learning all open chords, how to play barre chords, how to tune a guitar, music theory, and most importantly, how to have fun playing the guitar!
We recommend that adult students looking to start guitar lessons have a clear goal in mind - such as learning to play a few of their favorite songs. When you start lessons, a teacher will help you unlock the skills required to reach your goals. Keep in mind that you might not be able to start off with the exact song you want to learn - it could take months of study and practice to learn all of the notes and chords required to turn your dream into a reality.
The earliest suggested age that students can start their guitar lessons is 6 years old. Students of this age will find it much easier to learn on a half-sized classical guitar with nylon strings. They will start off by learning to play simple melodies on the top strings. Students can begin to form chords, as well as play and sing along to songs by about age 7 or 8. When students get to age 10-12, they should be able to comfortably handle a full-sized guitar. Students often like to play rock music by this age, and will therefore want to play the electric guitar.
