About Albert

I love to play and teach guitar! 35+ years playing. (See Video!) I get tremendous satisfaction from teaching students and in sharing my knowledge.

My specialty is in educating students the theory behind creating songs and in constructing musical notes into chords of various genre from scratch. I have a personal library of written instructional documentation to copy and share with each student.

The student will gain a thorough understanding of music and the guitar instrument under my direction.

Sorry I am allergic... so I cannot instruct students with cats and/or dogs in house.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

General Music

I have over 35 years playing guitar in multiple bands and in studying music composition and music theory with various teachers. I attended Mannes College of Music in NYC. I will provide the student a wealth of knowledge on music theory and music history, and as it pertains to a wide variety of musical styles and genres. I will provide the student ability to read musical notation, and develop pitch and rhythm skills

Guitar

I will instruct the student on how to construct Guitar chords and how to play scales, chord progressions and lead soloing all along the guitar fretboard.

At Mannes College of Music I attended classes in Music Theory, Ear Training and Music Composition. I studied 2 years under the direct supervision of classical guitar virtuoso Anton Del Forno.

I have over 35 years of playing acoustic and electric guitar in over a dozen bands which brings much experience to the student who is trying to learn and who may never have played in a band. I have a library of guitar songs with chord structures and solos written out for the student to copy.
The wealth of knowledge I bring to the student is indispensible and would immediately help broaden the student's knowledge of music and how to play guitar.

Great Teacher

Albert has been very helpful in teaching me the guitar. In just a few weeks I have learned to proficiently play 7 chords! I have also learned to strum one of my favorite songs. So much fun!
