"In 2019, I took several 1-hour lessons from Ed Levy, master Broadway guitarist/teacher. Ed is based in New York City; I live in San Diego; so, naturally, we used SKYPE to conduct our lessons. SKYPE worked out great. It allowed me to avail myself of Ed’s musical expertise, something I couldn’t get face-to-face here in San Diego. The value of Ed’s lessons was inestimable. As a classical guitarist/composer, I was interested in learning more music theory so I could better understand the nature of my instrument. Ed’s lessons did not disappoint! Not only did I learn the 5 major scale patterns in 5 keys and was given the major, 4-note root position chord voicings, but Ed’s enthusiasm for the entire jazz genre ignited a spark in me that has now led to a lifelong interest in the jazz idiom. I can’t wait to resume my lessons with Ed.
Jerry K., classical guitarist / San Diego, CA
"I studied with Ed Levy while working on my Bachelor's Degree. He has helped me tremendously in the areas that would have otherwise been very daunting and difficult to learn, such as arranging chord-melody solos, learning to play over difficult chord changes, transcribing and analyzing solos, to name a few. Ed has helped me with understanding music theory, fretboard knowledge, and selection of good repertoire. He also instilled the love and appreciation of Classical Guitar playing. Ed is a very high-caliber musician, and has a wealth of knowledge of modern concepts of approaching harmony and rhythm.
Peter K., guitarist/music teacher, Master's of Music Degree Program
"Ed is a phenomenal teacher. I began with no musical knowledge at all. I did not know how to hold a guitar or a pick and today my guitar is a daily joy. The amount Ed taught me is amazing. I now have rhythm, an understanding of musical theory and structure, can read and write music and can hear music in an entirely different way as well as being able to play with friends.
"I am a video/audio engineer and programmer for a large A/V integrator as well as a guitarist/vocalist currently with Lenox Underground, a classic rock cover band based in Summit NJ. I have studied with Ed Levy for several years, mainly in 1-2 hour-long sessions in private or by Skype.
Ed Levy is an accomplished and amazing player, as well as a consummate music teacher. The musical devices and knowledge he has picked up along his career path have all been compiled and polished as an effective and speedy track to better playing.
Brian H., guitar/vocals/engineer & programmer (Diversified US)
"Ed Levy is great, he was my first guitar teacher at UT, and taught me what is now my favorite chord (V7sus4b9).This dude got my classical chops from Snowflight to Capricho Arabe, and showed me how to love jazz.
Paul M., professional guitarist/teacher
"When I first saw the ad online for this program, I wasn't sure what to expect- linking up over the web is always so hit or miss, but this was definitely a jackpot. As a musician I'm always looking for situations that will strike a balance between pushing my abilities and being a well-run, positive, supportive experience. I feel blessed to have gotten personal attention from a musician who plays at the industry's highest levels in NYC. From Broadway to Bach, Ed has experience with just about every type of music and performance scenario you could imagine.
Nick P., professional singer/songwriter/guitarist
Ed is an excellent teacher! Full disclosure: I’m a professional musician and Ed is my cousin. Occasionally I encounter situations in which i can play my music, but i don’t understand what’s making it tick. Ed has never failed to explain something to me in a way that enables me to see it in a completely new light. I wish i could pick his brain 24/7!
