The Art & Science of Music Instruction!Total Control Music Systems provides private music lessons in Guitar (Electric & Acoustic), Piano/Keyboards, Voice, Electric Bass, Bluegrass Banjo, Mandolin, Pedal Steel, Ukulele, Songwriting, Music Theory, Recording/Music Technology.All lessons are taught by Michael Wolfsohn, creator of the Total Control Music System (a unique, multi-disciplinary set of materials & methods that lead to maximum musical mastery in minimal time), and author & designer of dozens of instructional books published by Hal Leonard & Cherry Lane. Michael has been teaching music since 1979, and has taught at The Old Town School of Folk Music and Northwestern University (Norris Mini-Course program) before beginning his private teaching career in 1983. He is also a former manager of the guitar division of Hal Leonard Music (the leading publisher of printed music). We teach all levels, from complete beginners through professional musicians, in all styles of music. We normally accept students age 7 or older. (Children younger than 7 generally don't have the attention-span needed to study music -- but we gladly accept younger children who show themselves to be ready.) There is no maximum age limit!We also teach people with injuries and/or physical limitations that may make learning music more difficult for them, and we work with musicians (at any level of ability) who have playing-related injuries, such as hand pain, tendonitis, etc.
All lessons are taught at our easy-to-reach, fully equipped music/recording space near Williamsburg, Brooklyn (2 blocks from J,M, Z subway line, near Flushing Avenue & Broadway)Lessons times are by appointment, 7 days per week.
