Sid has a seemingly unending repertoire of amazing little tricks and techniques that allow a player to advance much more rapidly than your typical lessons. He’s an incredibly gifted player in his own right, and as a teacher, he’s just as talented.

Awesome instructor. I was able to start playing songs after a few weeks and I had never played a guitar prior. Sid is patient, very encouraging and has the ability to teach to all levels. I highly recommend Sid, if you are looking to start playing the guitar or if you are an experienced player and looking to further your abilities.

5/5
High School student

Sid is a master guitar player who has a very broad understanding of the instrument, music theory, and music in general. He is an even greater teacher, however, because he has the ability to take his years of experience and knowledge and convey it to a student in a way that is practical and applicable.

I picked up guitar on my own back in college. Progress was pretty quick at first but I always plateaued when songs/tabs I wanted to learn were beyond my ability. I’d play the same songs in the same ways for 6 months at a time until I inevitably got bored and put the guitar down for a while. With Sid…

I took lessons for a month this spring and Sid got me started playing right away even though I had never played guitar before! He was very personable, accommodating, and was open to playing the music I was in to.

I’m writing this after my 3rd lesson. And although I’ve taken guitar lessons (on and off) for yeeeears, I’m already doing things I’ve never done!! Sid listens and attends to your goals, meets you where you are at, and remains responsive to what you need

Sid is a fantastic teacher, he knows how to get the point across in a way that’s easy to understand. I’ve been playing for 25+ years and after two weeks I was already improving for the first time in years. From beginners to advanced I can’t recommend him highly enough.

I never played the guitar, or any instrument for that matter, before in my life. After the first lesson, Sid had me on my way to learning a song. Not long after that I even felt confident enough to play a few songs in front of friends. Over the past three years my ability to play has increased and I really enjoy music. Thanks, Sid!

My 14 y/o son loves the lessons, he has learned a lot coming weekly for about 8 months now, much better technique, different styles of music, theory – great teacher!

Sid is fantastic as a guitar teacher! I am an older (52) beginner and Sid knows exactly how to cater my lessons and “homework” for me. His passion for guitar and music in general is contagious! He genuinely wants me to be a better (happier) guitar player. I can not recommend him enough. Just call him! John

I started with Sid a few months ago. I had been playing guitar for a while off and on. I knew all the pentatonic positions but had no idea how to use them outside of just playing scales. Sid has shown me one position so far but more importantly how to use it to make up my own licks. Great teacher and I would recommend him to anyone looking to improve

I highly recommend Sid for guitar lessons for any level from beginner to advanced. I had never picked up a guitar before in my life and the amount of progress I have made with Sid teaching me in a little over a month is amazing! If you are looking to take guitar lessons in the New Orleans area at any age or skill level you need to call Sid now!

Sid came highly recommended to me by my Chiropractor last August. Playing the guitar has always been on my bucket list but I have never been exposed to the guitar and have never taken any music classes. In less than one year, I can play my favorite songs! Sid has a method of teaching that will have you playing and understanding this amazing instrument in no time. I have friends that .

After many years of being a music/guitar fan and having the pleasure of listening to my dad play, I finally became determined enough to pick up a guitar and take lessons w/ Sid. I have since progressed to a point that I did not anticipate reaching so quickly. Sid makes me excited and optimistic

Recommenadable because of the incredibly talented musician for the guitar lessons for beginners and a wonderful teacher for any skill level. Extremely accommodating and patient with every student. They teach the basics and introduced to valuable lessons to steadily increase the student’s skills. The classes are made very approachable, interesting and fun to learn.

Sid is a fantastic teacher. He listens to my guitar goals, and then he creates a path for us to go down to reach those goals. Sid has a wealth of guitar knowledge and knows how to simplify it so that anyone can understand. I am not a total guitar beginner, but even
