I live NYC, which is where I teach most of my private and group lessons. I am an alumni of Berklee College of Music and have 20 years teaching experience in most styles and all levels. I am a practicing instructor on sites such as TrueFire.com and at festivals like the National Guitar Workshop and Bath Guitar Festival. I was also the Guitar Instructor and On Set Consultant for the movie August Rush and am a regular contributor to Riff Journal, Guitar Player and Premier Guitar Magazines.
Video Courses on TrueFire.com
I also offer courses on TrueFire.com which are interactive video courses available for purchase as a download, software DVD or available for streaming online. They cover a wide variety of styles and topics and feel free to sample some of the videos online to see what they’re like.
Jeff is hands down the best guitar instructor I have ever worked with. He is the rare combination of someone who can both teach AND play. He has a method when teaching, and designed a lesson plan for me with both long term and short term goals. He is both professional and personable. A total pleasure to work with and I could no be happier. I also love the convenience of studying online. Highly recommended!
It has been almost 2 years since I started taking private lessons with Jeff and it’s fair to say is that I’ve come eons further than I’d ever thought. Jeff intuitively knows just where to lead me – each lesson is just the right dose of challenge to keep me on my toes and move me forward. My only regret – I should have signed up years ago!
I have followed Jeff on TrueFire and have his courses. I reached out for lessons and I’m so glad I did, it’s the best thing I have every done for my playing. I live in Australia and can study with a top notch musician and instructor in NYC and it’s easy.
..I highly suggest you investigate working with Jeff… Jeff has helped me improve a lot over just the past 4 months or so working together…He’s also quite a personable and funny guy…
I have been taking online lessons with Jeff for sometime now. I can personally tell you it is worth every penny! I was hesitant to do the “online thing” instead of face to face lessons with somebody local, but in retrospect, I have never regretted it. The “online” component of his lessons are never an issue, and you get to study with a world class player and teacher. I have enjoyed noticeable improvement in my playing and understanding of the instrument.
Jeff has done more for my playing in 6 months than others have done in 4 years. Besides being a great guy and super Bluesman Jeff ALWAYS explains WHY he is teaching a certain lesson instead of others who just say “do this because you need to”. IMHO that’s the difference between a run of the mill guitar teacher and a Master Instructor. Wish I would have signed up years ago!
