Excellent Teacher and Guitarist!

Tony has been a great instructor; he is a very knowledgeable and skilled guitarist with so much passion that is very infectious! He really gives me the motivation to try harder until I get it! He is very patient and tries to understand how I learn and what I want to learn and customizes the lesson to my learning ability. It's not easy teaching me, but some how he figures it out! Tony thanks for all your time, effort and genuine care in teaching me the guitar and being the jump start for a lifetime of guitar playing!

Students in this subject can study a variety of components related music theory and/or songwriting. Students can expect to learn the fundamentals of music theory and how it works, and if interested how to incorporate this knowledge into their own songs or musical interests.

Music theory and songwriting covers a broad range of music disciplines and students can expect to learn how to analyze their favorite songs, learn how to construct beats if they are interested in music programming, or even further their understanding into the worlds of classical and jazz studies.

Students will be expected to supply their own instruments, equipment and materials in instances where they would like to relate their music theory study to a specific instrument. They must also bring a notebook to write down songs they are interested in and/or artists and groups they would like to study. Students interested in classical or jazz study will need to purchase specific books and materials at the teachers ...

Everything went well until we decided to do in home classes. After we paId him upfront he canceled a couple of time then he rescheduled a virtual class where he never showed up, we texted him and 20 minutes later he sent a text letting us know he was too busy And couldn’t continue teaching my daughter. We asked for the refund which we haven’t received yet. He is a good teacher just very unprofessional. we didn’t lose that much money but he hurt my daughter since she looking forward to learn from him. I wouldn’t recommend him.

First off, I want to mention something that potential Philadelphian students should be aware of. I can only go to certain sections of the city, and I can only give you lessons on weekday afternoons between 12-2pm. Sorry, no evening classes. I'll need time to travel between New Jersey and Pennsylvani

"We were great peers in college

I had the privilege to work with Melissa when I was a student at Cornish College of the Arts. Melissa was always so dedicated and encouraging towards me and my musical goals. If I had a question she would be right there to help me solve it. Melissa's strongest suit in my opinion is her ability to compose music. She is extremely patient, passionate and detailed in her work. Thanks Melissa for everything!"

I'm taking music theory and composition lessons from Daniel to supplement what I already know from composing by ear. He's an excellent teacher, very enthusiastic about teaching the material, and extremely knowledgable. I feel like I've learned a ton so far and we're not even close to done yet! Highly recommended."

"Studying with Chris has been awesome. We started working together on music theory and since then he has helped me to better understand songwriting, live performance and sound production. I feel so much more confident in my abilities as a musician with the skills I’ve leaned from him. Chris is patient and very thorough. There were several moments when learning music theory that I felt I wasn’t picking it up fast enough and he continued to review the material with me until I understood it. Chris is very fluid in his teaching approach. He is able to shift from one topic to another based on what I am wanting to focus on in each lesson. My favorite part of working with his has been diving deep into my original songs and brainstorming ways to improve them. Chris always has tons of ideas to offer that are rooted in theory which makes them both practical and effective."
