    Kagan is patient and very knowledgeable. He is open to any genre of music that you are interested in. He strives to ensure you are comfortable with what is being taught and educates you along the way. He is very passionate about his craft and works well with kids and adults. My daughter has learned so much from his lessons and I will also be hiring him to teach my two younger children.

    Kagan made me feel comfortable while learning about music. He’s very enthusiastic and passionate about his music. I didn’t just learn how to play the guitar, I got to learn about the history and meaning behind songs. Best teacher out there!

  • Daniel Morris

    I’ve been working with Kagan for over 6 months and my playing has improved majorly. Able to teach new techniques and theory in a understandable way. Great for newer players

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

As a new student, you will be asked a lot of questions on your musical background, genre preferences, and favorite artists. This helps me formulate customized lessons plans that tailor to your interests.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am currently earning Bachelors Degrees in both Music Production and Music Business with a Specialization in Guitar Performance from Berklee College of Music (Online). 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

$80.00 per month

How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching guitar by accident. People I often played with when I was young asked me a lot of questions about guitar and I always had one in my hands. By now, I've taught every genre in one form or another. I really try to take the time and understand what your goals are (I assume you have some kind of musical goals if you're willing to take lessons). Learning what makes an artist along with the practice of the instrument is an important step that can be overlooked and sometimes never even addressed, leading to some players feeling stuck and out of place.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with all age groups and level entries.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Make sure the teacher you decide to go with understands where you're coming from musically, rather than financially.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What do I ultimately want to do as a musician? Am I more of a hobbyist? What styles of music do I find myself most fond of?
