Acoustic Guitar:
Acoustic guitar is such a great instrument for so many reasons. With my method, not only will the student learn the songs and styles they love, but they will become musicians while doing it.
So many guitarists feel limited, because they never learned the basics of notes, chords, technique, and theory. I will unlock the fingerboard and make learning music fun! Student will bring in songs they like to learn.

About Karen

Hi! My name is Karen D. I’ve had the pleasure of performing, singing, writing, and recording since I was seven years old. Besides being an Honor Graduate of Berklee School of Music, I have been a lifelong student of the international world-renowned instructors Dante Pavone and Charlie Banacos.

Karen obviously loves the piano & guitar. She’s probably an excellent teacher for those instruments. Why do I say that? That’s what she talked about! She spent half my lesson trying to convince me to learn one of those instruments. Could work on listening skills! Not even sure if she owns a set of bongos herself. Didn’t start teaching me anything until last 10 min & then I had to leave early anyway. So 50 min out of 60 and about 5 I actually learned a few things I could have been practicing for at least 30 min of class. Use her if you want to learn something else other than bongos.

Ms. Karen did a pretty good job, she had ideas for the lesson and provided ideas for the next lesson. She went out of her way to help me with this new idea---------"music" and "reading music." If there was any short fall in the lesson it was on my side and my preparation failings. I have no problem recommending Ms. Karen to others. Regards, JC

Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!

Most times we miss the ultimate goal of learning, which is to master how to do it yourself. Hi, I am Victor and i have been teaching the guitar for over 20 years even before i graduated from Berklee college of music. I teach all popular styles of guitar playing and i also teach you how to master the habit of figuring things out by yourself because i believe that is the ultimate goal of learning.

About Victor

I am a professional guitarist, songwriter, and recording artist and music producer. I have toured around the world and shared the stage with a lot of popular artists. I graduated from Berklee college of music with a degree in Music production and audio engineering and electives on acoustic guitar.

Mr. Tarantola has taught my three kids to play piano and to read music. Their confidence in their music abilities has grown over the years as they continue to learn. The skills they learned with Mr. Tarantola has helped them in school music, band and in learning new instruments such as drum set and clarinet. Mr. Tarantola has the ability and personality to teach all ages including new beginners such as I - who began lessons in my 40's. Highly recommend!

Hey there! I'm a multi-instrumentalist with a strong foundation in Guitar, Bass, and Drums.

My lessons are curated behind a few things:
-the understanding of music theory (scales, chord progressions, rhythmic structure, song composition etc.)
-student's requests to learn specific songs and creating original song
-having FUN!

Because in my experience, you're not learning if you're not enjoying what you're doing.

After 6 years, of playing drums, I began my time as a guitar player. I grew as a guitar player tremendously fast because of my understanding and practice of rhythm. I began as an acoustic/folk guitarist, progressed into a blues/funk guitarist, and now play mainly funk, r&b and neo-soul. I also am accustomed to teach many other genres. I now write, produce, and perform my own music and stream online.

When you take lessons with me you can expect that the lessons will increase your music theory knowledge, finger/hand dexterity, rhythm, ear training, performance abilities, ...

I am a Multi-Instrumentalist who teaches Guitar, Drums, Bass, Music Production, Audio Engineering, Cinematography, Photography, and Video Editing. My instrumental experience includes 13 years of live performance, recording and songwriting. I focus my lessons around the understanding of music theo

Not only during our lessons was Collin able to communicate clearly and quickly, but he also made the learning the nuances of the guitar a worthwhile and meaninful experience. I highly reccomend him to anyone who is looking to pick up the instrument or is trying to find a teacher for more advanced lessons."

"I've taken lessons with Oliver for a couple of years, and it's been great! He takes a practical approach to the lessons, not getting bogged down with a lot of music theory that, while really interesting, doesn't advance my skills on the guitar. Oliver is very enthusiastic and patient (which is important, as I'm a 60-year old trying to master something which doesn't come naturally to me - at all!). I highly recommend Oliver as a guitar instructor."

"Nice and solid first lesson. Jason hit the ground running by quickly assessing where I was and then providing me with info to help me move forward. I walked away with straight-forward exercises to get me ready for my next lesson. I appreciated that Jason reached out before my appointment to gauge my experience and was very positive as I moved (that is stumbled) forward. Jason manages to jam a bunch of information in a short amount of time without rushing. I look forward to my next lesson and am encouraged to put in the time to put my best foot forward."
