Michael J Perrotta, providing individualized Guitar and Bass lessons in East Setauket, New York.
Learn from a working industry professional how to achieve your goals while learning to play the music that you love.
I offer a customized curriculum based on your individual goals and learning style – whether it's a traditional path of reading standard notation and studying scales and familiar pieces; or playing entirely by ear and reading guitar tablature; or something in between, I will make sure that you are getting the most out of your lessons and practice time to achieve your goals as quickly as possible.
Everything we do in lessons has a practical application. If we work on scales, they will be applied to improvising and songwriting in a very direct way. If we work on reading more complex rhythms it will be because you expressed a desire to learn to play a style of music that requires that knowledge. Everything has a purpose; I don't waste time teaching you something you won't use. If you study with me for years, as many students have, then eventually we will cover all facets of guitar playing and music in general, but the important thing from the start is to get you playing full songs - note for note - in the style of your choice.
