I have been teaching guitar to students on the East and West Coasts of the United States for over 20 years. I was always interested in music and made my first “recording” at the age of 2 and a half. I got serious about playing the guitar when I was 10 years old after hearing the legendary Randy

In teaching lessons, it is my great pleasure to share with students of all ages and skill levels the knowledge that I've gained over 27 years of playing. I firmly believe that anyone can learn anything at any time, given the proper tools!

In our first lesson, we will determine your musical goals and create a realistic path to achieving them. It's my job to help you along this path while keeping things fun.

To maintain focus and week-to-week continuity, I always provide lesson notes to take home. I can also provide recordings of lessons and transcriptions of pieces, if desired.

**Studio Equipment**
violins, viola, mandolin, guitar, bass, ukulele, piano, recording equipment

About Elias

At 5 years old I was struck by the incredible beauty of Vivaldi's music, and ever since I've been playing violin. I hold a BA from Oberlin College of Arts and Sciences, won a scholarship to the Baroque Performance Institute in 2005 and attended the BPI again in 2006. Apart from teaching, as a profes

I've been taking lessons with Elias for over 6 months now and it has been a great experience. I started taking lessons as an adult who previously studied a little violin and wanted to learn Fiddle. He is knowledgeable, patient and has come up with lessons that were perfect for my background. I'm thrilled about the progress I've made so far and taking lessons from someone who loves music as much as Elias has added a real highlight to my week.
Sara
Elias is the best! Such a knowledge and passion of music. He has been my sons guitar instructor going on 5 months. My son has learned so much and always enjoys and looks forward to his lessons. My son is is not only learning guitar but violin as well from him. Fantastic instructor A+
Joni
I am very impressed with Elias! He listened well, offered helpful suggestions, laughed and was very congenial to work with. We discussed how to hold a bow and, since I have some arthritis in my hands, he was very open to other possible options that might work better for me. Taking lessons from him will be a bright spot in my week. I would recommend him in a heart beat!

"I left a review as many have done at the beginning of my lessons on the site's request. I studied with Edwin for about two years through Skype, and wanted to evaluate the experience after it was completed. Edwin was a very polite and skilled teacher. He taught me many new techniques and different styles of jazz guitar that stick with me still, and which I use every day in my playing. I recommend him to anyone wanting to learn more about playing jazz guitar."

"I’m a peer of Matt’s. Matt is very knowledgeable about all things guitar. He specializes in heavy metal and harmonic minor lead guitar, but can show you much more than just that. I’ve seen Matt use alternate tunings like Led Zepelin or Rolling Stones do to create something completely different sounding than standard tuning. I substitute for him on occasion, and his students are on a method book and a song to play each week. Students showed me what they were working on, and it appeared Matt wrote out every song the student was interested in week to week. From my experience as a teacher, this helps the student stay motivated to play and continue their practicing/studies if they genuinely like the song they are working on."

"I’ve done both in-home & remote lessons with Chris. Chris is a really great teacher, with a deep knowledge of music theory and technique, but also the ability to adjust that to whatever level you’re coming in at. I was a near complete beginner with a lot of anxiety about playing in front of other people when we started and Chris was able to work through that with me with a lot of humor and kindness. His agenda is to work with his students on songs they are interested in learning, and along the way weave in lessons on how notes and chords work, which I’ve really enjoyed. He also teaches bass guitar to my teenage daughter, who really enjoys her lessons and has improved greatly since they began. I highly recommend Chris."

"Jimmy's patience with my 6 year-old son was remarkable. I was reluctant to start him so young, but Jimmy explained things in a way he could understand, and always encouraged him to ask questions. My son learned so much, and he was really excited to learn, thanks to Jimmy's calm demeanor and skill as a teacher. I would recommend Jimmy to ANYONE that wants to learn, he is a wonderful teacher!"

How to Simplify Your Live Guitar Rig for Performances

Playing the guitar is such a fantastic experience. It’s so relieving to be on stage or in your designated practice space and just wail on your instrument.

We often get trapped in thinking that we must have the biggest and loudest guitar rig for shows, accompanied by a pedalboard equipped with 30+ pedals.
