Hi! My name is Joe Tollefsen. I have many years of experience playing and teaching in different styles, and I love to teach students of all levels. I have a BM in guitar performance from the Peabody Institute, and am pursuing a Master's in performance at the Yale School of Music, where I also teach undergraduates and non-majors. I teach based on each individual's goals and strengths, and I think it's important to keep the love of the music and instrument at the heart of our work together. To this end, I believe teaching needs to be flexible and able to adapt to each student's needs. It's always an interesting and exciting journey!

Larry L. says, "George is an amazing musician and a great guy. I bought some guitars as artwork in my house because I’ve always thought they were cool. The only problem was I didn’t know how to play them at all like 0 and it certainly was obviously that I have no natural ability. I know lots of friends that play at really high levels but I knew hanging around them I would never learn anything because it would turn into a social event. I knew I needed a teacher, a real teacher. I found George on this site and luckily he lives only minutes away. From day one he was sure that I learn something at every lesson. Difficult task as I’m not a good student and my attention span is pathetic. If I’m not good at something right away I loose interest. George is so patient and supportive that I won’t give up. I only have time for one lesson a week sometimes less due to my job but lessons with George are one of the few things I look forward to going to. Thanks " Read more

Children can start blues guitar lessons between the ages of 6 to 10 years old at the earliest. The best time is whenever they can hold the instrument easily and have the hand strength to press on the strings.

Adults of all ages can learn to play blues guitar with the right instruction and regular practice.

  • For kids, ask other moms and dads what their kids say about the teacher.
  • Get a plan on paper about when your lessons will be before you start.
  • Pay a little at first to see if you like the teacher before you pay for a whole month.

Reviews for New Haven blues guitar lessons

Recent success stories from people in the New Haven area.
Jerri W.
He breaks down the music and techniques of how to create the sounds I want from my guitar. He can also listen to a piece of music I want to learn and can know right then what notes/chords are being played. I’m always amazed at how easy he makes it look. I’m very lucky to have found such a great musician to be my teacher.

Steve has done a great job teaching me what I needed to stay interested and progress at a fast pace. The lessons are fun and approachable and after trying to pick up guitar a few times, I feel like I am finally getting into it. He is also flexible and reasonable with scheduling. All around good teacher.
