LEARN HOW TO PLAY ACOUSTIC GUITAR

If you would like to learn how to play acoustic guitar, my name is John, and I'm a longtime guitarist and teacher offering organized, step-by-step lessons for aspiring guitarists and music students, from absolute beginners to experienced players.


Structured Lessons That Will Teach You:

  • NOTES
  • CHORDS
  • STRUMMING PATTERNS
  • FINGERPICKING
  • MUSIC THEORY
  • HOW TO READ MUSIC
  • HOW TO READ TABLATURE
  • HOW TO READ CHORD CHARTS
  • HOW TO PLAY SONGS
  • HOW TO ACCOMPANY YOURSELF WHILE SINGING
  • HOW TO PLAY IN THE STYLE/S OF YOUR CHOICE
  • HOW TO WRITE YOUR OWN SONGS

    ...and much more.


Here's what some of those who've taken lessons with me have said:

    "Thanks John - I'm playing right now - I just LOVE my guitar and playing.. Thanks to you! I will try to come on Monday night after work if that is OK with you. Thank you - you are really a great instructor.... it really inspired me once again. :-) "
    -Mary L.

    "John is a great, patient teacher. As an adult with absolutely no experience, I was hesitant to start learning, but John has taken me much further than I thought I'd go. After just six months, I've learned songs, and my guitar-playing friends have been amazed at the depth of theory and technique I've picked up. I highly recommend John to beginners, and his depth of knowledge would be great for practiced guitarists!"
    -Bob C.

    "Man, you wouldn't happen to have any of your famous chord progression sheets laying around would you? I am looking for new material and your lessons always clicked with me. I figured out my first song today!"
    -Brandon W.

    "All the printed chord charts and explanations you gave me are really helpful, I am starting to understand some of the theory that you talked about in class, it's kind of awesome."
    -Nitika N.

    "I enjoyed our lesson today, and would like to schedule another one for next week. Does Wednesday at 8 work again for you?"
    -Rob E.

    "I liked your training. I will reschedule for next Saturday, August 7 @ 12pm."
    -Diana B.

    "I just wanted to let you know that I liked your lesson, thank you very much, and I would definitely like to continue having you as my teacher...you are a great instructor."
    -Eric

At the end of each lesson, you'll retain access to what you've learned through take-home materials you'll be given that you can use to practice with at home.


Over 30 years of playing experience, and more than 6 years' worth of teaching. Lessons take place in my Lower East Side apartment, with afternoon and evening classes available. $25.00/hr. Contact me to schedule, or to find out more.
