I like to make learning an instrument fun and easy to fit into your schedule!

If you're an adult finally getting around to learning your dream instrument or a child following your passion of playing music I tailor your lessons specifically to you. We look at what you want to play, pick specific songs that you want to learn, and learn the techniques you need to play these songs. It sounds simple, but it's so effective and much more fun to learn this way!

I have been playing guitar for 13 years and have taught for around three years. I have experience playing rock, pop and jazz and have extensive work experience with kids. I have studied music at three different summer institutions including New York Summer Music Festival, Litchfield Jazz Camp and Interlochen Center for the Arts. I have most recently earned my Bachelor's Degree in Music and Psychology.

Joey is an amazing and patient teacher! I had never taken lessons before so it was slow starting out, but Joey is very skilled and was extremely helpful. I continue to take lessons and will continue to for a while.
Celeste
Joey and I were in the same composing class during undergrad and they kindly offered to teach me guitar. Since I was at a beginner level, I had to learn techniques and music theories from scratch. As a result of their teaching, I was able to progress efficiently and enjoyed their selection of practices. In addition to our guitar lessons, Joey also answers my questions outside of class times, which has been extremely helpful during the pandemic. Joey is a great teacher who's passionate about music and teaching. I strongly recommend Joey to anyone interested in taking guitar lessons.

Private Guitar Teacher

I've been teaching guitar for over eight years. I've previously been a part of two bands during my formative years and recently have been a session guitar player for four upcoming indie rock, alternative, and R&B/Soul albums.
For children and beginners, I use the Mel Bay publication Children's Guitar Chord Book as well as Hal Leonard's Guitar Method series. I also apply basic music theory that includes learning the Circle of Fifths and basic reading of sheet music.

For intermediate guitar players, I utilize the Gibson's Learn and Master Guitar series to teach Power Chord Formation and Delivery, Fingerpicking, Pentatonic Scales, Reading Tabulature, and tackling some of classic rock and jazz's favorite tunes.

For guitar lessons at my studio, I leverage Guitar Pro to project and display tabs and play-alongs with ease. For in-home lessons, I use the software for select lessons as we begin song selection and play-alongs.

I can't wait to rock out with you as you find your inner ...

Milton is an excellent instructor! He is very knowledgeable, kind, and patient. The guitar curriculum he uses is very good. I have prior musical knowledge in piano, and Milton knows when I need to be challenged/need extra work and when I can breeze through exercises on my new instrument. Lessons are really fun and I always look forward to them. Highly recommended!
