Step-By-Step Lessons in
ACOUSTIC GUITAR PLAYING


If you'd like to learn how to play acoustic guitar, I provide structured, comprehensive, step-by-step lessons for absolute beginners to experienced players. Lessons take place afternoons and evenings in my Lower East Side apartment, and include instruction in:

  • NOTE PLAYING
  • CHORD PLAYING
  • STRUMMING
  • FINGERPICKING
  • TABLATURE
  • CHORD STRUCTURE
  • SONG PLAYING
  • WRITING YOUR OWN SONGS
  • MUSIC READING
  • MUSIC THEORY
  • DYNAMIC PLAYING
  • PLAYING IN THE STYLE/S OF YOUR CHOICE

    ...and much more.

You'll develop your playing skills, learn concepts and techniques, and, at lesson's end, have easy access to what you've learned through the use of take-home materials you'll be given, that you can use to practice with at home.


What some of those who've learned 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.

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

"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.

"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

"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.

"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.
