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!

Anything and everything guitar is my specialty. Classical or regular acoustic welcome. We will cover the parts of the instrument and why everything is so darn important (like how to stay in tune!).

If you plug your guitar in, we can perfect your guitar's signal flow, pedals, and amplifier settings, too!

I cover all kinds of styles, from simple note and scale picking and open chords, to pop/rock/punk/metal/blues/jazz/fingerpicking/classical and more.

Want to learn basic rhythm? lead? fast strumming? how about making those big chords without making your hands hurt? I can help! You'll be jamming along with your favorite songs and with friends in no time.

I typically will teach and write guitar using tablature instead of standard sheet music. These are a simple set of lines and numbers that are much easier to read, and once learned will instantly give you access to thousands of songs.

Also I can show you how to play with a capo or slide, fingerstyle or pick. If you want to ...

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I've been teaching Acoustic Guitar for 30 years. My students have gone on to play professionally, have their songs on iTunes and teach at the college level. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to identify notes on the neck, start working with open position chords and using those chords to play simple songs. As time goes on you'll be able to play up the neck using movable position chords. (I love teaching this stage. Once the students learns how these chords work and how it saves them time learning, they are always very happy.) I specialize in fingerstyle playing but enjoy pickstyle as well. I typically use Hal Leonard series or Jerry Synder's Guitar Instructor book 1 and 2 to get started. These books cover open position chords, moveable chords, pickstyle, fingerstyle, staff notation reading, bass runs, etc. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

I teach every student the technical skills and applied theory necessary to work in any contemporary style on guitar. I use the "Be better than you have to be" approach. Want to be the best on a bad day? Be better than your chosen style requires. I studied classical and jazz in order to excel at rock, folk and blues.
You will learn to read music and charts for guitar, as well as movable scale patterns, movable chord forms, and how to apply it all to master the fretboard.
Have you hit a road block? I can help. Are you brand new and want to be sure you understand the instrument completely? I can help.

"Matt taught both of my kids over the course of three years. He taught them how to play acoustic, electric, and even the ukulele. He’s an amazing student of music and I believe he has a degree in music as well. He started them with the basics and foundational skills required to play. Not only does he know the instrument inside and out, he is super attentive in understanding how to teach the instrument to children as well as adults. Highly recommend him for any of the string instruments. He is the real deal, not a hack that taught themselves guitar."

I only took lessons for a month because I really didn’t have the time because of work and other chores I needed to give attention to but Greg was really friendly and patient and if I had the time to really focus on guitar, with the help from Greg, I’d probably be awesome by now.🤙🏽
If you’re thinking about or wanting to learn how to play, I’d highly recommend Greg.
Thank you Braddah Greg and ROCK ON 🎸"
