I have been teaching guitar for 20 years. I studied classical guitar and audio engineering at William Paterson University in Wayne, NJ. I have toured the country in various bands as well as my own solo project. I write and record my own music and aside from teaching, it is what I am most passionate about. Through my many years of teaching, experiences playing in bands and writing my own music, along with my studies I am more excited than ever to be opening Goffle Guitar and bring my expertise and passion for teaching guitar to others in and around Hawthorne, NJ.

    Ed is an amazing teacher. I can’t believe how much I learned in a short period of time. He’s skilled, extremely patient, and made a beginner like me feel super comfortable and confident. Great addition to Hawthorne - I highly recommend Goffle Guitar!

    Frequently asked questions

    First I find out from the student or the parent what their goals are and then I base the lessons around what they are looking to achieve. I always strive to ensure lessons are fun, informative and progress the students own interests.

    I studied classical guitar and audio engineering at William Paterson University and have taught both privately and in music shops around northern New Jersey since the early 2000's. I am an active musician, songwriter, guitarist and music producer. 

    I charge $70 for a 1 hour lesson & $40 for a 30 minute lesson.

    Early on in high school I had began teaching both friends and acquaintances alike casually, and then in college I had been entertaining the idea of giving guitar lessons between my college classes. One day I stopped into Sam Ash Music on Rt. 4 in Paramus, sat down to play, an employee heard me playing and asked if I gave guitar lessons. From there began my private teaching journey and word of mouth spread. Before I knew it I had students all over northern New Jersey that I taught privately and in music shops. 

    I have taught students of all ages and abilities. As young as 6 all the way up to folks in their early 70's. From beginners to intermediate players which make up the majority of the students I teach. 

    Being able to get back to playing gigs and teaching in person again.

    Look for a teacher that is enthusiastic about music, their instrument and teaching in general. It's crucial to connect with a student & create a positive learning environment. 

    Get as clear as possible as to what you are looking to achieve in the short term and possibly even long term. Based on your level and experience I can always put together a ciriculum Are you simply looking to learn how to play chords, songs and perhaps write your own songs? Are you interested in learning to read sheet music and tablature?
