If you are a guitarist in new york city, a teacher in new york city, or somebody interested in taking lessons in New York City, you have an incredible amount of talent to learn from and a great deal of fun experiences to be had.

First Steps to finding Guitar Lessons
The first step finding guitar lessons in New York City is to figure out what type of guitar lessons you want to learn. Outside of acoustic and electric guitar, there is a wide range of types of learning you want to consider. The trick is to find what style works best for you. Some of the main styles include rock and metal, pop music, indie guitar playing, classical guitar playing, you can learn blues guitar and you can learn jazz guitar. Searching through the many instructors on lessons.com will be able to help you with this.

Styles and Techniques
After you have selected a style, you will want to figure out what techniques will work best for you. Most guitar teachers and guitar instructors will be able to help you with this. Fingerstyle and flatpicking are sometimes called styles but they are moreso techniques you will use to learn the genre of music. So pick your style, or just decide whether you are a beginner or an intermediate player. Find a teacher who might be able to offer your style. Or just pick a teacher and ask them if they are right for you. The guitar instructors on lessons.com will be able to provide you with an incredible experience of learning and before long you will find yourself inspired.


Featured Guitar Instructor: Matt Patrick Walsh

Learning guitar in New York City? Manhattan guitar teacher Matt Patrick Walsh talks to Lessons.com about how he will teach you to play guitar and be the guitarist you want to be. Check out our interview with Matthew to find out about his guitar teaching approach and the experience of taking guitar lessons with him. You can read Matt’s interview below, but you can also hear what he has to say, as well as hear a little bit of his playing style by visiting the Matt Patrick Walsh guitar teacher page.New York City Guitar Teacher Matt Patrick Walsh

Lessons.com: So, we’re here today talking with Matt Patrick Walsh about his guitar teaching. He is a guitar teacher on Lessons.com. Matt, thank you so much for joining us.

Matt Patrick Walsh: Thanks for having me.

Lessons.com: Absolutely. So tell us, first – where are you located? What city and state do you teach guitar in?

Matt Patrick Walsh: I’m in New York State, primarily Manhattan. That’s where I teach guitar.

Lessons.com: Great. Understood. And, tell us about the guitar lesson climate in Manhattan. Do you find that there are a lot of people who want to learn to play guitar?

Matt Patrick Walsh: Oh yeah … definitely. Everyone wants to be in a band; everyone wants to play their favorite song. Everyone’s child wants to play their favorite song. So, it’s a great climate.

Lessons.com: That’s wonderful. What do find are the kinds of styles of guitar that people are most interested in?

Matt Patrick Walsh: I think primarily classic rock, a lot of The Beatles, some blues, jazz, and, every once in a while, I’ll get a metal student, and we’ll do the whole lesson in drop D.

Lessons.com: Got it! Drop D tuning? Right. That’s cool. And, I assume you offer other styles of music that you like to teach.

Matt Patrick Walsh: Yeah. I personally like funk, and I try to put some funk elements into it. If a person is interested, I try to put some funk aspects in. I definitely like the acoustic singer/songwriter type of vibe.

Lessons.com: Do you teach a lot of fingerpicking style guitar?

Matt Patrick Walsh: Yeah, I definitely do. I’m a big fan of trying to put a bass line into a guitar part. You have a one-five type of thing, when you’re playing. It’s good. It makes it so you’re not just part of a band. You can actually be a one-man band with your guitar.

Lessons.com: That’s the thing about playing guitar – you can be totally independent if you wanna be.

Matt Patrick Walsh: Exactly, and that’s what a lot of people want. A lot of people want to accompany themselves.

Lessons.com: Of course. And, can you give us a sense, just in simple terms, about your overall approach to guitar teaching? What do you tend to focus on?

Matt Patrick Walsh: Well, I usually like to take one-half of the lesson and try to dedicate it to some kind of a guitar method book, like a Hal Leonard or a Mel Bay book … maybe not even half, but just like a portion of the guitar lesson. And the other half, just make sure we’re learning songs and playing songs. Learning a tune is really important, and it feels like you’ve accomplished something. If you can learn a tune in the first two or three lessons, it really shows that you’re making progress. I mean, I think that’s what’s important. You just gotta dive in – learning guitar chords right away. I do think, in general, learning a little bit of sight reading is always important, so you know what you’re doing.

Lessons.com: Got it. Can you tell us a little bit about the types of guitar students that you teach? Do you find that you teach guitar to more children? Or more adults? Is it kind of an even mix?

Matt Patrick Walsh: It varies. Sometimes I’ll have more adult students. Sometimes I’ll have young children. Right now I’m teaching … my newest student is … I think he’s almost ten years old. So, that’s always a bit of a challenge when they’re younger; that’s a good age though .. ten is a good starting age. I have some friends that are actors. I actually got my friend a callback for “Once”. I taught him some basic guitar chords – he’s an adult. My oldest guitar student was sixty. It’s a fifty-fifty split – right down the middle.

Lessons.com: Understood. Can you tell us a little bit about your guitar lesson fees and your scheduling options?

Matt Patrick Walsh: Sure. I actually have a studio that I work in on the Upper East Side, and for a half-hour guitar lesson, I charge thirty-five there, and for an hour, I charge sixty. If I go to your apartment, it’s usually only an hour, just because of traveling, and I charge seventy.And over Skype, I’ll do twenty for half-an-hour and thirty for forty-five minutes.

Lessons.com: And so, have you been doing Skype guitar lessons for a long time now? (Editor’s note: Check out Lessons.com's Skype Guitar Lessons Page.)

Matt Patrick Walsh: I’ve only done two, and, actually, I did one for coaching once for an audition, where they had to play guitar. It was pretty helpful because I couldn’t get there in time. They had to learn it pretty quick. It’s not good for beginners though – Skype …

Lessons.com: How so?

Matt Patrick Walsh: Just because there’ s a lot of technical things. You can’t see … if you have a student, whose thumb is coming over the fret board, you’d want to correct it and put their thumb there (Matt demonstrates), but once it starts inching back … on Skype … “You gotta put your thumb back” … you don’t want to be too persistent online. It’s more of a hands-on thing, when you’re starting, I think.

Lessons.com: Makes sense. Understood. So, can you tell us a little bit about your background?

Matt Patrick Walsh: I’m actually a music theater composer. So, I’m constantly working with lots of different instruments, as you can see (Matt gestures to a keyboard and assorted instruments behind him.). I’m a pianist, and I also play bass. I offer bass lessons, but I always start people on guitar before bass. I’m very familiar with playing in different bands, different genres … folk, funk, all kinds of rock bands …

Lessons.com: It sounds like you have a lot of experience that you can offer people. Cool. You mentioned the equipment behind you. Can you tell us a little bit about your equipment, like the guitar that you’re playing there?

Matt Patrick Walsh: Yeah, this is actually a Martin guitar. This was my father’s guitar in college, and he kind of got out of the habit of playing it, so he gave it to me, and I’m really grateful for that. I have a Jay Turser hollow body guitar that I play for guitar lessons with the electric guitar, and I play a Schecter four string bass.

Lessons.com: Great! And, do you ever get into any recording with your guitar students? Do you use any kind of recording programs?

Matt Patrick Walsh: Where I teach out of, I don’t have a rig setup or anything like that, but if I go to a student’s apartment, and they want to record on Garage Band, I can certainly bring over some equipment, and we can work on Garage Band. I usually don’t jump into anything like Logic – while I use it – because it can get a little complicated to teach in a guitar lesson.

Lessons.com: Is Logic the program you use to record when you record yourself?

Matt Patrick Walsh: Yeah, I use Logic. It just seems the best when you’re using a Mac.

Lessons.com: Sure. Makes sense. Well, we’d love to hear you play something – either a song, or if you want to show us some lead … whatever you’d like to show us.

Matt Patrick Walsh: Sure. Actually, I have two little things. When I work with students that want to do some lead, I usually teach them a song called Black Dog by Led Zeppelin. It has a nice little pattern in the key of E. So, I can play a little of that. (To listen to Matt play his rendition of “Black Dog” and “I Want To Hold Your Hand”, referenced below, please visit the Matt Patrick Walsh guitar teacher page.) Some simple fingerpicking too. It’s fun to play. You know, you use a little distortion on it.

Lessons.com: Yeah, it sounds cool on an acoustic too!

Matt Patrick Walsh: Thanks. My big thing is I get a lot of guitar students that really wanna learn how to accompany themselves, and so the first song I ever learned was “I Want To Hold Your Hand” by The Beatles, and I’ve been switching how I play it for a while …I try different chord formations. So, actually I’ll try that … I’ll do a little segment to it, if that’s cool.

Lessons.com: Yeah, please. Please go ahead.

(Matt sings and plays The Beatles’ “I Want To Hold Your Hand”)

Lessons.com: That was cool. So, kind of an alternate version – a little mellower in a way, right?

Matt Patrick Walsh: Yeah. More “Across The Universe-y”

Lessons.com: Yeah. I like it! So, one last question: Do you offer your guitar students advice about buying their buying their own equipment?

Matt Patrick Walsh: Oh, definitely! I’ve gone with students to Guitar Center before. I even went down to the downtown location to help pick out a half-size guitar for a younger student, which is always good if you go with a parent. But yeah, I’m totally down with going and giving any advice, offering links. It’s hard to pick your first one (first guitar).

Lessons.com: It is. It can be an overwhelming process. It’s great that you offer your students so much advice about it.

Matt Patrick Walsh: Thanks.

Lessons.com: Well, listen, Matt, thanks so much for joining us. It’s been great to hear about your guitar teaching, and we look forward to seeing you on Lessons.com in the future.

Matt Patrick Walsh: I’m looking forward too. Thank you so much.
