*IF YOU DON'T LIVE NEAR ME OR TRAVEL FREQUENTLY, i TEACH MANY STUDENTS ONLINE, EITHER ON SKYPE OR GOOGLE HANGOUTS.

For intermediate and advanced players, emphasis on sight reading/crossover styles is given. Group coaching for guitar with all combinations of instruments is available. I have a quiet rehearsal studio 3 miles west of Manhattan via NJ Transit #168 & 175. My early career as a concert musician began in the 1970s. I'm a working musician and musicologist/annotator, published at any given time in approximately 75-100 running technical and cultural publications. In early 2006, I was included in who's who in American Women and who's who in Education in America, and as of 2009, was included in the international who's who in Music. I attended Wittenberg University (sacred music) where I studied conducting and orchestration with John Williams and Ian Polster, New York University for humanities, and the Mannes College of Music (MM classical performance and theory) where I studied with Robert Secrist, Frederic Hand, Charles Kaufman, Julius Levine, Yakov Kreizberg, Leo Edwards and Marie Powers.

Andrew G

Instruments:

Welcome to my profile. My name is Andrew and I am primarily a self-trained musician and performer of over 20 years. I began playing piano at age 5, guitar at age 7, drums and bass at age 16, and have been performing in bands since age 14. I've also become a collector of guitars and other instruments and musical equipment. I have had very minmal instruction of my own over the years however what I have been taught has been invaluable to me. In 2005 I attended Berklee College of Music in Boston for their summer program. This was an eye-opening experience as I learned various techniques and styles from some very talented and well-known musicians. I studied music theory and jazz improvisation at Newtown High School in Sandy Hook, CT before going on to obtain my B.S. in Justice and Law Administration from WCSU, graduating in 2013 (the backup plan every family member suggested).  Over the years I have been in many bands that include the following styles of music: Folk, Rock, Metal, Punk, and Reggae. I have completed 2 solo albums of my own work and since 2008 I've done all my own recordings. Currently I play guitar in the punk band Two Fisted Law.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

It is highly recommended that young students begin by learning on smaller, half or three-quarter sized acoustic guitars. For older students, an electric guitar may be suitable, on the basis that they can hold it correctly and with comfort. For between $150 - $200, many student model guitars can be bought from new. Electric guitar players will also need to purchase an amplifier and guitar cables, at additional costs. Remember, higher quality instruments are often easier to play, which will likely enhance the students enjoyment and development the instrument.
Taking in home guitar lessons saves you time, energy, and money. There is no need to pack up the guitar or amp to take them to the teachers studio, since a qualified, talented teacher can travel directly to your home. We make finding a teacher easy by matching you with a teacher who fits your needs and schedule.
The most important thing is that students learn how to have fun when they are playing the guitar! It can be a challenge to master the basics, and it does take a lot of practice, but with the proper teacher, students can be playing their favorite songs without too much trouble. Topics covered during guitar lessons include: learning the notes, open chords, and barre chords, learning how to strum and pluck with the fingers and pick, and also sightreading techniques and music theory.
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. At Musika, our experienced teachers can help you to achieve your guitar playing goals, whether you are a novice, intermediate or advanced level player. It takes time, dedication and patience to acquire the co-ordination, techniques and skills necessary to meet your aims. Those who commit to taking regular lessons and daily practice will see the fastest progression in their guitar playing abilities.
Students can start their lessons as young as 6 years old with a half size classical guitar (nylon strings), by playing simple songs on the top strings. Most students are able to form chords by age 7 or 8, and begin learning how to play and sing along with their favorite songs. Older students will graduate to being able to comfortably handle a full size guitar around ages of 10-12, which is when many students become more interested in learning rock guitar and want to get an electric model.
