Featured Scarsdale Guitar Teachers

Kaz A

Instruments:

I have been teaching guitar since 2006 to students of all ages and skill levels. I grew up in a musical family. Both of my parents are amateur musicians. Growing up as a teenager in the 90's, I was steeped in the history of the guitar including classical, rock, and jazz music. I studied music performance in school and have been playing professionally since graduating from Rutgers in 2005. I enjoy sharing my passion for music with students and helping them achieve their goals as musicians.

Sean S

Instruments:

Sean began formal training under Jorge Morel. Shortly after, he was accepted into the Manhattan School of Music where he earned a B.M. in Classical Guitar Performance. While there, he studied with Oren Fader and Mark Delpriora. He also played in master classes for Eliot Fisk, Eduardo Fernandez, David Starobin, and James Smith. He later went on to earn an M.A. from Teachers College, Columbia University, where he pursued post-graduate studies. He has performed extensively throughout New York including a performance at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall. He performs extensively in a wide variety of musical styles from classical to rock. Sean also brings with him over a decade of teaching experience. He has taught applied guitar at Columbia University. He is currently on faculty for several music schools, in addition to teaching privately- maintaining an extensive and extremely talented studio. He believes that the guitar is unique because it can function in such a wide variety of musical styles. Any style can be explored with the intent of reinforcing competent and sound musicianship.

David S

Instruments:

I enjoy teaching students of many different age groups and levels of experience. My background in recreation Therapy and Music Therapy makes it easy for the student to have fun and lean at the same time. While I was a student at Wayne State University I began playing gigs at Jazz clubs throughout Detroit. I thouroughly enjoyed meeting jazz musicians twice my age and eventually playing with them.

Summer L

Instruments:

I'm a pianist and guitarist residing in Brooklyn, NY as an active performer and educator. I graduated from Berklee College of Music with degrees in Professional Music (emphasis in piano performance) and Music Production and Engineering. I began studying piano at a young age, and have since developed a solid foundation in classical, jazz, pop, rock, and folk styles.

Jose Luis A

Instruments:

I am a musician in the New York City area that enjoys advancing the art of music by performing and teaching it. I graduated from Hunter College in 2013 with a Bachelors of Music Perfomance on Saxophone. I have had a lot of experience playing with big bands, orchestras, and small jazz combos in beautiful performance halls as well as smaller venues geared towards small bands. In conjunction with all of this, I have learned Guitar in varying styles from Pop, Punk Rock, Alternative, and Country as well as the music theory needed to write music in these styles. Music is a great form of art that I hope to spread to as many people as possible.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

For young beginner students, it is recommended that they start their guitar lessons by playing on a half or three-quarter sized acoustic guitar. If they can do so comfortably, older students may like to start off with a full-sized acoustic or electric guitar. There are a variety of different student model guitars available that from new, will cost between $150 - $200. This price does not include the costs of amplification or guitar cables, which will also need to be purchased for those wanting to play electric guitar. Students are more likely to have fun learning the guitar if they find it easy to play. Consider purchasing the highest quality instrument possible as these often feel nicer to use and are easier to play.
Musika deals primarily with home lessons for students. The location is the only difference between our in-home lessons and our studio lessons. As they do not have to travel to their lessons, home guitar lessons can be highly convenient for those parents and students with a busy schedule. For younger students in particular, having guitar lessons in the comfort of their own home can be of great benefit. They will feel more safe and relaxed in familiar surroundings, allowing them to focus on learning and enjoying playing the guitar.
At Musika, we appreciate that every student learns at their own pace. As such, our experienced teachers produce customized guitar lessons specifically for the requirements of each individual student. Our teachers can design lessons for any student, regardless of their age, experience or ability. Some of the things students can expect to learn during their lessons are; learning all the notes of the guitar, playing and rhythmic techniques such as fretting, fingering and strumming, how to read musical notation and tablature, learning how to play a variety of different chords, such as open and barre chords, and music theory. Over time, as each student progresses, they will learn how to piece everything they have learned together, in order to form complete compositions. Students can learn to play their favourite songs, or even to write their music!
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. Students in this age category will start of by learning to play simple tunes on the top strings of the guitar and are recommended to use a half-sized classical guitar with nylon strings. By about 7-8 years old, students will be forming different chords and playing and singing along to their favorite songs. When students get to about 10-12 years old, they may become interested in rock music and decide to learn on a full-sized electric guitar.
