Ryan isn't just the best teacher on here, he's one of the best people and musicians you'll meet. A true professional guitarist who has toured and played his whole life, Ryan teaches guitar the right way. He's totally chill and he makes you want to practice every week. I can't recommend him enough. Thanks, Ryan!
Theresa
Ryan is a really terrific teacher! He was happy to tailor the lessons to meet my goals and my desired pace. As an adult beginner learner, I really appreciate working with him.
Karan
I started taking guitar lessons from Ryan 2 months ago and he is the first teacher I have stuck to for this long, and more importantly, the longest I have stayed with the instrument! Ryan takes the time to understand my needs and the kind of music I enjoy and tailors the lessons accordingly.

He is incredibly knowledgeable and an awesome guitarist. The lessons are always fun and he is very responsive to any questions I have and encourages sharing musical things I enjoy so he can understand my tastes better.

Very glad to have found Ryan and looking forward to many more lessons with him!

This adoration took hold at the young age of 11 when I began to play guitar. Since then, I have had 6 years of private lessons and 4 years of classical guitar training.
I love all genres and am excited to learn along side you!

Music has been my passion since I was 10 years old. I didn't have any real instruments at first, so, I built my own out of coffee cans, ice cream containers and of course: a rubber band shoebox guitar! It might sound funny, but, I believe these early days of trying to create music using my "homemade symphony," forced me to really get to the core of sound and expression without the pre-set curriculum of traditional music study. Early on, I learned a few fundamental concepts of music theory that would forever change how I learned, as well as how I taught music to others. I believe these concepts set a foundation that allowed me to understand music and grow much faster - including learning multiple instruments.

And yes, I eventually acquired a real guitar and went on to study music and computers at the University of California and I currently compose music for TV and film in my own studio. I have taught guitar, bass, piano, drums, theory, composition and recording production to ...

About Peter

Peter has a wonderful, positive personality and is really easy to work with!

I just started my second year of guitar lessons with Peter and I’m learning so much! Peter is a great teacher who is patient, encouraging and a great listener. He can “hear” the areas that I need to work on, and is able to clearly communicate ways for me to improve . He has helped me get better at my rhythm, my strumming, tempo and even an introduction to music theory. I’m now playing (and singing) some of my favorite songs! Highly recommend!

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. I have experience performing in Jazz Competitions in the United States and Canada, arranging scores and using GarageBand and Logic Pro X for music production. I have worked with students who are new to guitar and those who have been playing for a few years. I love teaching guitar and sharing my passion with others!

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.
