April showers bring May flowers. The old joke goes, What do May flowers bring? No, not Easter or Passover or allergies. Read May flowers as one word. The answer is Pilgrims!
So what does the old April rhyme have to do with your guitar playing or learning to play? Well, the truth is, if you're serious about your music, you are on a journey toward excellence. And if that excellence seems like a far away land right now, you are a musical pilgrim. Depending upon the degree of excellence and technique you desire to attain,the journey may have begun quite a while ago.
If you are an intermediate or advanced guitarist,
Get more serious and better results with your music

I developed this site and my original and effective approach to teaching guitar as a result of being NY metro area professional guitarist with decades of experience training people who "play the guitar” to become “musicians whose instrument is the guitar."
Don't let the words "Technique" or "Tutor" scare you.
(The domain names I wanted were all taken so GuitarTechniqueTutor.Com was the best I could do to suggest superior and effective guitar instruction.)
Real musicianship among guitarists is rare. The purpose of this web site is to offer beginner guitarists, the most comprehensive instruction available to them in the Bergen & Rockland County area and bring beginner, intermediate and advanced guitarists to the highest level of playing they can achieve.
If you want to really learn to play the guitar or are already a disciplined guitarist and want to revolutionize your technique, strength, endurance, understanding and your performance skills, this web site offers you the means to contact a competent instructor, who can help you play better by training you: to make your practice time its most effective, to prepare your music and yourself for auditions and other performances, to use correct form, to master guitar technique, to develop speed and endurance, fretboard knowledge, to understand musical scores and compositions and to approach ear training and sight reading so you get results.
GuitarTechniqueTutor.Com offers every guitarist advice in all aspects of the guitarist's development and if my schedule permits, private instruction in Airmont, Allendale, Cresskill, Fair Lawn, Glen Rock, Hawthorne, Haworth Hillburn, Ho-Ho-Kus, Midland Park, Montebello, Montvale, New Milford, Oakland, Oradell, Paramus, Park Ridge, the hamlet of Ramapo, Ridgewood, River Edge, Saddle River, Suffern, Tallman, Teaneck, Tuxedo, Tuxedo Park, Upper Saddle River, Viola, Waldwick, Washington Township,Westwood, Woodcliff Lake, Wyckoff and their immediate surroundings.
The truth is, if you lack coordination and strengthand do not have broad knowledge and full understanding of what you’re doing with your guitar, you will not progress as a musician; instead, you will develop inconsistency and become complacent or frustrated with your state of musical stagnation.

The Guitar Technique Tutor Podcast was a weekly and then a twice monthly broadcast for my students and guitarists everywhere. Regular segments were: Intro, Student Spotlight, News, Question of the Week, Take Note, and Outro. After over 100 episodes, my personal schedule has caused me to suspend broadcasting at this time. The Guitar Technique Tutor Blog is replacing the podcast and contains all show audio files and the show notes from the 2013 shows. On the blog, I hope to spread the excellence by informing guitarists of all levels about common pitfalls, proper technique, news in the guitar world, care of their instruments and more.
