How Our Private Distance Learning Music Lessons Work

Choose An Instrument

Hey Joe Guitar Music School provides Distance Learning music lessons for children and adults. Wherever in the world you live, we offer remote access to New York City’s top music teachers. Before the current Covid-19 crisis we provided in-home music lessons in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Obviously teaching music, just like everything else, changed with the outbreak of the Covid-19 virus.  However, we have adapted and our teaching artists are now providing high quality, personal and engaging, remote-learning music lessons via Zoom or Skype or any other secure remote access platform.  We continue to offer lessons in: guitar, ukulele, piano, bass, drums,  violin, flute or any teachable instrument. We teach children and adults to appreciate and have fun with learning music. We have helped literally thousands of students cultivate their passion for music since 2007! Our teaching artists are highly motivated and committed to helping their students learn and grow.  Our promise is to find all of our students a teacher who is right for you.

Covid-19 Has Not Stopped Us From Teaching!

Our in-home music school has adapted to the Covid-19 Pandemic by switching to using a high quality “distance learning” methodology. Early on during the current pandemic we made a commitment to continue to provide dynamic and personal music lessons ~ through the use of any secure remote access application our students prefer!  

As before, the first step is to call or contact us over the internet.  When you do ask about Distance Learning music lessons the first thing we do is to ask about your child’s musical goals. We are interested in our students learning styles and personalites.  Unlike with most music schools, at Hey Joe Guitar Music School, in the beginning, you’ll speak with our director and founder, Joe Berger (by phone or chat). After you and Joe speak, he will set you up with a professional music teacher — someone who is a great match for you and someone who will help you meet your learning goals. Joe takes a personal interest in each and every one of our students. He recruits teachers from the top music schools like Columbia University, The Manhattan School of Music, and Berklee College of Music. Your lessons can be structured and intense or fun and playful — or somewhere in between. Our music teachers are known for designing music lesson plans that are tailored to meeting their individual music student’s needs!

Distance Learning

Once a student is registered, a teacher is assigned to them and that teacher will provide private music lessons remotely (via Zoom, Skype, or Google Hangouts) in the safety and comfort of your home. As terrible as the Covid-19 Pandemic is, we have adapted our school’s methodology to ensure that our music students can continue to learn.  In fact, the current ‘shelter in place’ orders have created an opportunity for students who are required to stay at home ~ with a positive opportunity to express their creativity and desire to learn music.  Our New York City-based music teachers offer music lessons seven days a week, 24 hours a day. Just decide how much teaching time you’d like and we’ll schedule and assign your music teacher. Your Instructor will tailor an individualized learning plan that’s just right for you.

Why Us

We are committed to working with each and every one of our students, and regardless of their musical ability or experience.  We have a proven track record of reaching students and sparking their native creativity ~ AND ~ we have a considerable experience working with students who have learning challenges.  Our teaching philosophy relies on making the learning experience fun, uplifting, and as serious and professional as our students desire. 

Like everyone else we are concerned about our family and friends and appreciate the amazing efforts our first responders and medical community are providing.  Our thoughts and best wishes are with them every day.  We too hope for a speedy end to this crisis, however, until we see light at the end of the tunnel Hey Joe Guitar will endeavor to continue meeting the needs our students!

Our Nonprofit in New York City

Our nonprofit organization, MusiCan, brings music programs to schoolchildren in New York’s economically disadvantaged neighborhoods. During the pandemic, the children will be receiving Distance Learning from their music teachers. Hey Joe Guitar donates a portion of its proceeds from every music lesson to MusiCan. And it also contributes its own best teachers. As a result, each year hundreds of underprivileged kids experience the joy of participating in a music program in their public school.

We found a great in-home music teacher for our twin boys through Hey Joe Guitar! And Joe put us at ease by sending us a motivated, playful piano teacher and the boys have stuck with it for several years now.  My 7-year-old daughter also takes lessons but with another teacher, Jenna, who gives her guitar and singing lessons at the same time. Most of all, we couldn’t be happier that we relied on Joe to send us two teachers we can trust with our children. Both teachers are professional and down to earth. Thanks, Hey Joe Guitar!
