Until further notice we are only offering lessons online through Zoom, FaceTime or Google Hangouts.

Online lessons are very similar to lessons at the studio. We're still face to face with instruments in hand, working on new techniques, new songs and having fun discussing music. We'll also make videos of things we're working on during the lesson for you to reference later. Along with the videos, we'll email you PDF's of things we're working on as well. 

Who we are

About the lessons

Since 2005, we have been helping students of all ages learn to play guitar. We offer private guitar lessons to students of all skill levels at our Brooklyn studio in Gowanus, your home or online in a fun and patient environment. Whether you're picking up a guitar for the first time or you've been playing for a while and are looking to break out of a rut, we can help. We also offer lessons in acoustic and electric guitar, electric bass, pedal steel and lap steel guitar.
