I free musicians by teaching them to fish at each lesson instead of giving them a fish at each lesson. That's a metaphor. :)

Hi there! My name is Emanuel and I teach guitar, bass, ukulele, songwriting and music theory.

My approach for beginners is to teach the mechanics and principles of the instrument up front in a fun, intelligent, and intuitive way. The main reason many people give up on guitar is lack of development in this area, and most teachers drag this initial process out for far too long by focusing on the wrong things or on too many things. Here’s your chance to do it right with an exceptional teacher who cares and wants you to have your musical independence and freedom.

For more advanced students I use an array of knowledge and tools to aid in musical development. I particularly like helping artists who want to do their own material and offer high-end song-doctoring to professionals.

Emanuel received his first guitar from legendary Irish rocker, Brush Shiels when he was a young lad and started playing soon after. He was already writing songs by then and singing leads for Church/School choir performances, winning the national Slógadh group competition under the tutelage of famed Irish session musician, Declan Masterson.

After high-school, Emanuel studied Bel Canto singing under Frank Merriman and Edwin Williamson and played the Dublin live circuit including such venues as The Baggot Inn, Whelan’s, The DA Club and Project Arts Center. During this time he also taught music and recording technology to under-privileged kids at Dublin City Arts Center.

Since coming to New York he has continued as an instructor and working musician to this day, hosting music nights and playing venues and festivals in NYC and the Hudson Valley as well as writing and producing for other artists.

  • This is for serious songwriters and subject to Emanuel's pre-approval. The material has to meet a certain standard for him to consider it for a Song Doctoring session.

    Song Doctoring is a process by which Emanuel goes through your song with you to show your best options for optimizing the song and/or taking it to completion. Through this process you can take good ideas to greatness and great ideas to the stars.
