Many students are satisfied learning covers, which is great, but the real fun and creativity is in writing your own music. Writing takes confidence and freedom and everyone has to start somewhere. I help new writers with laying down basic songs, and more advanced writers with nuance and innovation - how to borrow ideas from songs they love, use music theory to create harmony for lead melodies on guitar, piano, and voice

I also offer music recording on Garageband, guiding writers on how to select a beat, add tracks, and connect musical ideas. I've been writing and recording my music since 2004, which stretches from Pop and Country to Soul and Hard Rock. I share my process and allow writers to explore the process of artists they love to see the progression even the greatest artists go through.

Adam is a wonderful guitar instructor. He is very knowledgable and he is always calm, patient and very encouraging. He taught me a lot of ways to practice and enjoy music. Thank you Adam! I would highly recommend!

I took acoustic guitar lessons with Adam and he was a wonderful teacher. I had little knowledge of the guitar and felt I developed my skills quickly. Adam was patient, nice and came up with fun exercises and song selections. Would highly recommend Adam as a teacher!

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.
Julia Kwamya
Chris is a magnificent teacher. I had an elementary level of music theory when we started last year. Now I am able to hear music in ways that I simply could not before. As a teacher, he is patient and has a great sense of humor. I recommend studying with him if you are attempting to level up your musicianship skills.

As a French student, I can tell that Concetta is perfectly adapting to my way of learning. I know music for a long time but I'm a beginner with viola. I thought it would be a very hard exercise to practice but with Concetta's advices, I constantly and rapidly improve my technique. Five stars is the minimum I can give !
Bryan P.
Concetta is a wonderful instructor - prior to my lesson I was feeling nervous - not sure what to expect, not feeling worthy, etc. - she quickly put me at ease and we had a very productive 1st lesson - well worth the investment of my time and money
Joseph
I haven’t ever enjoyed a music lesson as much as I do with Concetta.
Concetta is warm, charismatic, and truly loves what she does which inspires me to keep going.
It’s the hour that I look forward to the most each week!

I started writing songs since I was 17, I have learned that sometimes it takes a hundred songs before you get ten good ones for an album. Well versed in helping create 3 minute songs for radio airplay. If you are into progressive music like Rush and Dream Theatre, I also understand how to write songs without concern of time limit that aren't necessarily made for radio but for pure enjoyment.

"Ahmad is Awesome! Lessons are a must. Before I started lessons, I would find tabs online and it was fun but I was wasting my time. I wasn't progressing and I didn't have any concept of timing and other essential basics. As a result, I was playing the proper notes but I wasn't playing them correctly and I couldn't improvise at all.

Ahmad takes difficult concepts and breaks them down into small, easy to understand pieces. Harmony concepts that I thought I wouldn't be able to grasp, I understand fully and use every day. He has a ton of tips that make learning so much faster. For instance, you learn how to find any note on the neck quickly without having to memorize the whole neck, which is crucial skill. Another great thing is that he uses tablature in his lessons. So, you don't have to know how to read music to get started.

If you ever want to write your own music or play with other people, call Ahmad now. He will make sure you learn the right way. I'm writing music and playing/improvising solos, at a level I thought I would never be able to achieve. Every lesson opens new possibilities."

"He just makes our music so much better. An exceptional teacher.

Randy has worked with my partner and I for 15 years. He took our melodies, arranged them, and turned them into songs that were actually singable. Watching Randy run a rehearsal and teach people songs is a sight to behold. He makes it happen quickly and efficiently, and we always have fun.

In all sincerity, I consider Randy to be the most talented musician I've ever known. He is a great teacher, even of inexperienced adults, and fun to work with. A winning combination all the way around.

Not only was she able to help me improve my songwriting, but she helped with my singing in my lessons too! She is definitely the perfect teacher if you are looking to work on both. She also taught me how to use the Nashville Numbers System to chart my songs and be able to communicate well with my band. I take lessons in Brittany's home, which is in a great location and is really nice. I feel very safe there (her complex is gated) and always love going to see her!"
