    Comment:  I want to recommend my husband’s former guitar teacher, Billy Newman. He’s a specialist in both Jazz and Brazilian guitar, and is very passionate about music. He’s an experienced teacher - a lot of his students are singer-songwriters, and he really understands how to get someone to accompany themselves and how to play solo arrangements. He also has more than 10 years of experience teaching children. He teaches in Boerum Hill, and plays gigs around town with his own group and other musicians. He is also a PSP member!
