Featured Yardley Guitar Teachers

Murat K

Instruments:

I am a guitarist and composer and just moved to New York from Philadelphia. I teach as an official guitar instructor at the University of Pennsylvania and work as a freelance musician in both cities. I also compose original music and have scored several short films and documentaries. I have been playing guitar for 15 years, and I listen to and play a very broad range of styles, from rock, pop, classical and jazz to Middle Eastern music. 

Pete O

Instruments:

In-demand NY session musician, teacher, and musical director Pete O has studied with many of the world’s top bass players. In addition to his independent studies at Berklee Music school, Pete has had the pleasure of studying with industry legends such as Victor Wooten, Chuck Rainey, Anthony Wellington, Adam Nitti, and Matt Garrison. Pete’s highlights include opening the Gathering of the Vibes festival in upstate New York, featuring James Brown, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Gov’t Mule, and the Allman Brothers. After his recent appearance on Fox Television's "Huckabee," Gov. Mike Huckabee, a bass player himself, remarked "You did such a great job. You should give me some lessons on the bass!"

Michael B

Instruments:

I am a knowledgable musician who enjoys teaching classical guitar, electric guitar, bass guitar and musical theory. I graduated from Bloomsburg University in 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts in Guitar Performance. During my time there I performed in the annual guitar ensemble recitals, honors recitals and my own senior recital.

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.

John M

Instruments:

I have a love for teaching students of all levels and ages. My specialty as a guitarist is in jazz, but I bring that love for improvised music to a number of other styles: blues, rock, funk, acoustic/fingerstyle, country, folk, ska, reggae, R&B etc. I graduated from Duquesne University in 2013 with a degree in jazz performance. Pittsburgh is a great jazz town with a fantastic local scene, which was a very fun and nurturing environment for me as a student. Now I am in my second and last year at Rutgers, Mason Gross School of the Arts, working towards my masters in jazz studies. Rutgers has made me a part of a network of excellent, young jazz players, which has been a huge help to my performance career.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

The easiest way for a guitar lessons student to find out what kind of guitar to buy is to ask their teacher. Your teacher will know what local shops have fair deals, and which shops do a good job of setting up the instrument. Young students and beginners may find an acoustic guitar easier to play on and handle, while teenagers will probably want the power of an electric guitar so they can jam with their friends in the garage.
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.
Young children will start out by learning how to fret notes with the left hand, and how to pluck or strum the strings with their right hand. This will allow them to play simple, familiar songs on one string. Students will start learning to read music, and eventually learn how to play the common open guitar chords. Once students are more familiar with the guitar fretboard, they can start learning barre chords, moveable scales, and be introduced to music theory. Advanced students might decide to study classical guitar repertoire, rock or blues solos, or even jazz improvization.
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. Our experienced teachers can help you to develop the necessary skills to attain your musical goals. Learning any instrument can take time, as you will need to develop your co-ordination and muscle memory in order to start playing chords, riffs and solos. The best and quickest way to learn these fundamental skills is to take regular lessons and practice your guitar playing as often as possible.
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.
