Welcome Friends

 
     

So…you have decided to play the guitar. By visiting my website you have taken the first step to what can be a marvelous lifelong musical adventure!

Maybe you received a guitar as Holiday gift. Maybe you have had a guitar for a while and tried to teach yourself to no avail. Teaching yourself from books or the internet can be next to impossible. For one thing, books and the internet cannot see what you’re doing wrong and therefore cannot correct you. Also, there are a dozen little things you need to know that are seldom addressed such as how to hold the pick, the position of your right hand, how to strike the strings with the pick and much more.

Beware: The internet is full of misinformation. I can’t begin to tell you how many times I have come across obscure, incomplete or downright wrong info on the internet. A lot websites and you tube videos are hosted by people who really don’t know the right way to do things.

Learning the right way from the beginning is very important. Once you pick up bad habits they can be very hard to break. I started teaching myself at 8 years old from books and by the time I was in my teens I was fairly good. However I just couldn’t break through to that next level. Once I began to take lessons I realized I was doing a lot of things wrong and there was a whole lot I did not know. So at that point I basically had to relearn everything I knew (or thought I knew) up to that point. Don’t let this happen to you. Learn the right way from the start.

A message to current students:

If you are taking lessons from a “Guitar Store”, you owe it to yourself to check out my programs. You are invited to come by for a free lesson to see for yourself how much better it can be. I have been told by my students that they learned more from me in a few mounths than they did in years with other teachers.

Students Comments About My Guitar Lessons:

Hey Ron, I just wanted to say that your agreat guitar teacher. I learned more from you in few months than I did from my other teacher in 2 years!

Tony P. New Hyde Park 

“You are the Best Guitar teacher in the world!”  ???

These were the words of one of my favorite students Sarah H. from Muttontown.  

Sarah is 4 and a half years old and she is officially my youngest student ever!

 

Thank you Sarah but I don’t know if I’m the best guitar teacher in the world.

Maybe the best guitar teacher on Long Island!

 

Sarah’s tiny hands presented a problem teaching wise.

Even though she plays a ¾ scale guitar (1/4 smaller than a standard guitar)

she still could not reach the lower notes.

So, being the best guitar teacher in the world, I came up with an awesome idea!

First I took off the 2 lowest strings so that she could reach all 4 remaining strings.

Then I changed the tuning of the remaining strings.

Tuning the strings to a lower pitch makes them much easier for small fingers to play.

 After just 4 lessons she can play a Major scale and a few chords too!

                                                 The Stylus Pick

This is what you need to take your playing to the next level.

 

One of the most common mistakes that I find with my students is how they hold and use the pick. A lot of people hold the pick too high leaving too much of the pick open. This leads to the pick dipping too far below the surface of the string.

The Stylus pick  forces   you to play correctly or you get punished!!!

I often compare it to the “Invisible Fence” for dogs….when a dog  passes a certain spot they get a mild shock. Well, no, the stylus pick won’t shock you but it will stop you in your tracks if you play too deep. This can be very annoying and you will go out of your way to make sure it doesn’t happen.

I started playing with the stylus pick about 15 years ago and saw a dramatic improvement in my playing after just a week or so.
