"My goal with students is to encourage both a love of music and the guitar as an instrument for personal expression. I want to see my students playing the music they enjoy as soon as possible. Every student is treated as an individual. Their needs, abilities and learning style are taken into consideration. I use this information to design a student specific curriculum. The experience should be fun and educational for the student."
Various openings 9am - 9pm
Prices are negotiable depending on location. They start at $40/hr.
I encourage students to take one or two lessons per week at a regularly scheduled time. References are available.
"Aidan Pagnani has been teaching my 12-year old son guitar for the last year. He started with the basics in technique and later worked with him on music appreciation. My son really enjoyed his easy-going and attentive nature and attitude. Aidan was always punctual and respectful of our schedule. I feel my son learned a lot about music and he enjoyed working with Aidan." - Carol L.
"An awesome guitar teacher! Aidan taught me awesome technique while having fun-- you'll learn to play the songs you love! I absolutely recommend him!" - Gabby P.
"Aidan is a terrific teacher!! I played professionally over 35 years ago and have not played at all since. At this point I could not play ANYTHING. He took me back through the basics and got me thinking the way I did when I was in my teens. Clearly he has the technical aspect of both music and teaching down - but what made him a great teacher to me is his love of music and guitar. Reminded me of why I loved it in the first place. Although we didn't match up on style perfectly - he embraced the music that I loved and got me back up and running - could not give him a higher recommendation!!" - David G.
I couldn't have picked a better guitar teacher! Aidan definitely knows his stuff and was so easy going -- he was completely willing to personalize his lessons to what I needed so I really felt like I got my money's worth. I would definitely recommend aidan for his informative and enjoyable lessons!
