I feel very rewarded seeing my students develop a passion for music!  I try to teach each student at his or her own pase.  I encourage this by setting realistic goals for my students at each lesson.  Acknowledging accomplishments helps fuel a students desire to progress, and makes students eager to learn more.  By trying to find out what inspires the student, I can successfully tailor my instruction to their wants and needs.

I start out with fundamental theory, scales, and chords, along with easy songs and riffs. I teach student differently depending on their skill and ability level. I utilize textbooks and DVDs to accompany the lessons. My approach is straight forward, which enables the students to learn quickly.I think the visual aspect of the guitar is very important, so I focus a lot on theory applied directly to the guitar. I like to customize my students' lessons accordingly to their needs and wants.The most important thing about learning is for students to have fun and expand their ideas and imagination. Music is about creation and self-expression.

Upon turning 8 years old, it had been my lifelong dream to play and teach music for a living. This of course marked the point in time when I first picked up the guitar. I was lucky enough to be taught by four phenomenal instructors - Dennis DelGaudio (Billy Joel guitarist 2009), Chris Jusino, Artie Blaurock (Sweet Revenge, Needulhed), and Rick Stone (Jazz Guitar at Hofstra University). Each of my instructors helped to mold my style of playing, and inspired me to seriously pursue what I loved the most. Performing and writing in various groups on Long Island as well as being a musician for hire/studio work (including backing Robbie Rosen of American Idol) helped serve as stepping stones for my latest and most accomplished project: FACE THE KING. With appearances at the Rockstar UPROAR Festival, Vans Warped Tour, and the CBGB Festival Main Stage, Face The King has has made a mark in numerous reviews on radio, print, and online publications. We have shared the stage with the likes of Jane's Addiction, Billy Idol, Shinedown, Godsmack, Staind, Flyleaf, Yellowcard, Drowning Pool, Juliet Simms and many others. The success I've had so far has given me great experience to which I share and apply to teaching my students.

My lessons are tailored to the individual student.  I will ask you what types of music interest you, what you expect to get from the lessons and the guitar in general, and construct a lesson plan just for you.  I focus on "practical application", meaning I don't clutter your notebook with sheet music and boring terms to memorize.  I will teach you how to play the guitar like your heroes using simple building blocks that will keep lessons fun and interesting and show results from day one.  You will develop by learning the songs YOU want to learn.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
