Shilpi J. says, "Prachi was the first guitar teacher for my son when he was 8 years old. At the peak of covid, when things were all remote, he started learning guitar online from Prachi. Picking new instrument online at this young age is not easy, but thanks to Prachi's commitment, and patience, my son not only learned guitar basics from her, but have continued it for the past 3 years. She helped build the foundation as well as passion for guitar for my son. Thank you Prachi !!" Read more

I am a conservatory trained jazz guitarist currently residing in NYC, where I perform regularly as a sideman in the city's jazz scene, as well as in the pop/rock scene. Education is one of the most beautiful and essential components of being a well-rounded musician: It is our duty as musicians to take the skills we've developed and pass them on to the next generation, supporting them and giving them the courage to develop themselves, no matter what level. Because of this passion, I always carve out time to take on students of all ages, skill levels, and backgrounds! Here are some

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.

  • How much should I practice at home between lessons?
  • What books should I get, and do you know where I could find used ones?
  • How many different blues guitar techniques can you teach?
  • If I'm struggling with learning, can you change the way you teach me?
  • What should I bring to class, and how long is each lesson?

  • If I have an urgent problem and need to cancel, what happens?
  • Can I choose some songs that I want to learn?

Aarsha M.
prachi was extremely patient and helpful! i had barely any confidence and she really helped me build it by giving me consistent reassurance and helping me track my progress. bonus points for her letting me play the songs I wanted to learn (which kept me motivated) as opposed to having me play from a prescribed set of songs :) I would highly recommend her classes - I’ve never met a guitarist better at fingerpicking style songs than her!

Chris is a working professional. His experience informs his lesson material and brings them into invaluable context. He is well-spoken, direct, and clear. His teachings on guitar fundamentals provides a strong foundation to the student. He will encourage the challenging stuff when he believes you're able to go the next step instead of throwing the wall. He genuinely cares about your progress and will support you as you practice and learn. A good man.
