"Lean your body forward
slightly to support the
guitar against your chest,
for the poetry
of the music
should resound in your heart."
Andres Segovia

If you have been directed to this web site for private guitar lessons from an out-going voice mail message, referral from a guitar store or a personal referral, thank you for your interest!! (If you seek a teacher for a child, please read the link Kids & Guitars.)

When I have private guitar lesson openings, they are available to beginners,intermediates, advanceds, professionals and those needing to prepare for auditions.

If you are in Bergen County NJ or
Airmont, Hillburn, Montebello, Suffern or Tallman, Tuxedo, Viola and the village of Ramapo, NY and you would like to explore the possibility of private lessons, please call to discuss it with me at 551•900•1414, or e-mail your lesson query to me and I will get back to you shortly. It's always preferable for you to call.

The method I teach is an all-encompassing approach that results in complete musicianship for the guitarist. If all you wish to do with your guitar is play a few particular songs or accompany a voice with a few chords, I am not the instructor for you. If what you you seek is to improve your tab skills, please read the link Tab vs Notation. BUT... if what you're seeking is to thoroughly learn and understandthe guitar and become a well versedand well rounded guitarist, I may be the instructor for you.

To further help you make a decision about whom to hire as a guitar teacher, please read the link Find a Teacher and contact several instructors before you make your final decision. Hiring a guitar teacher is not like buying a pack of gum, which is cheap and you're donewith it pretty quickly. Hiring a guitar teacher is more like buying a car. It's a proposition that will require a regular, weekly expense, maintenance and a relationship with another person you trust to deliver what you are paying them to do. Consider your options carefully.

All beginner students should learn to play, initially on acoustic or acoustic electric guitars.
If you have or are a beginner who insists on being taught on a solid body electric guitar, I am not the instructor for you.

Thanks for your interest in private instruction. If I sound like a teacher you would like to consider, please contact me at 551•900•1414 or any other means on the contact page.
