Local Lessons & Private Teachers

Find the perfect local teacher near you

Benefits of Local Lessons

  • Convenience

    (In-Home)

    Manage your time more effectively by cutting out the commute.

  • Familiar Environment for Kids

    (In-Home)

    Young kids may be a bit nervous in a new setting. Taking lessons at home is comfortable and familiar.

  • Focus

    (Teacher Location)

    It's easy to get distracted at home. Meeting at your teacher's location often cuts back on distractions so you can focus on learning.

  • Teaching Tools

    (Teacher Location)

    Depending on what you're learning, the teacher's location may have access to better resources that wouldn't be available in your home.

How Local Lessons Work

  • Search & Book Online

    Search for a teacher in your ZIP code and browse profiles until you find the right match.

  • Select Location

    You can select a teacher for in-home lessons or travel to their location - typically a studio or library.

  • Connect

    You'll have the opportunity to speak with your instructor before your first lesson.

Eric has been the most patient, well-prepared teacher I have ever had. Very concise and a great player himself. Jumped right into lessons that pertain to my playing style and my musical interests. Looking forward to continuing to grow as a player with Eric

Eric is an excellent voice coach. He can hear the tiniest fluctuations in your voice and knows exactly what is going on and will help you achieve correct placement to produce the sound you want. Working with him has made singing way less stressful for me and he is really encouraging. I’ve only had a handful of lessons and I’m already hearing major improvements in my range and singing all my favorite songs has become easier as well. He really is a godsend.

Eric is a great teacher. Because he is in a working band (Google: Wildstreet) he has firsthand knowledge of what works in the trenches of ClubLand. As you might notice, he possesses a breadth of knowledge of all things musical. I started out taking Logic Pro X lessons with Eric but segued into bass lessons. You might say that he is the Amazon of sound lessons, electronic and acoustic. The studio that he teaches out of is really cool and right near the Grand Sreet stop on the L train. I recommend Eric without hesitation.

I am taking quantum leaps in learning the buttonbox! Before beginning my lessons, I was learning out of books. I was growing frustrated with not progressing so I looked into lessons. I am grateful that I found Shelia! I highly recommend her.

She works off of the students goals. She makes sure the student know WHY they are doing what they are doing. Also, and more importantly, she makes the process fun for everyday.

My son has been taking lessons with Jonah for almost a year, and really loves working with him. I recently decided to join in with lessons of my own to try to progress out of the guitar rut I was stuck in. Jonah is pleasure to work with. Whether you're a beginner or beyond, Jonah is a patient, capable, and engaging teacher. We recommend him highly.

Jonah is a Godsend, seriously! I couldn’t have imagined, in my wildest dreams, a better introduction to guitar. Not only is he incredibly patient and knowledgable concerning guitar, but his passion and genuine love for the teaching process is palpable. I would recommend him a billion times over to anyone looking to learn, brush up, or further shape their guitar skills!

I would think the first lesson is always the hardest to start since as an instructor you don’t know what skill level you will be teaching. Trevor started the class asking what I wanted to accomplish and ended with lots of practice lessons for me to complete. Looking forward to more classes with him.
