As a musician I am trained in guitar, saxophone, and piano, with extensive background in music theory, composition, and arranging. My focus as a musician is on improvisation, a valuable and essential skill no matter what kind of music you play, and because of that I'm interested in helping my students play creatively from the very beginning. I've taught everyone from absolute beginning pianists, to guitarists looking to understand music theory, to advancing blues and jazz guitarists.
Dylan met me exactly where I was with my playing and has worked hard to get me to the next level. Dylan has helped me with every aspect of my playing, and he doesn't just show me how to do it; he shows me why it works. Very musical guy. I'd highly recommend him!
He was really understanding of what I wanted to learn and gave me the right tools to do so. He’s also great at explaining musical concepts, even on Zoom the lesson was super helpful.
Dylan is incredibly patient with his students and his passion for the guitar is infectious –– Thank you Dylan! He also has a knack for sending just the right amount of informative music theory PDFs to gear up for our weekly lessons.
Very patient in teacher a beginner, made his teaching fun and wasn't harsh when I made mistakes. I'd recommend him to anyone wanting to learn an instrument! He helped me understand more music theory (I'm primarily a flutist but was learning piano from him) and now I'm even a better flutist!
Typically I'll meet the students where they're at, whatever their interests may be. First it's important to make students feel accomplished by showing tangible improvement in their subject, then to help them expand their knowledge and ambition beyond what I can teach them in our sessions.
As a graduate of Columbia University, I've completed their music program and have formally studied music theory, ear training, history, and composition. I've written for large and small ensembles in classical and jazz contexts, and performed primarily as a guitarist in jazz, blues, rock, classical, Latin, and experimental contexts.
I start at $35/hr, but am flexible.
