Rich is a talented musician with incredible enthusiasm, depth of knowledge and practical know-how.  More importantly, Rich conveys his knowledge and experience to his students in interesting, fun and effective ways.  I look forward to every lesson.

Rich is a monster musician.  A teaching style rooted in a unique combination of old school “pick and shovel” work that all the great ax-slingers endured to master their techniques, complimented by the formal studies learned as a degreed musician.  Rich’s approach really accelerates the learning curve, and his practice routine helps keep your chops sharp, even for full-time working stiffs like me.

- Paul D.

Rich is very patient and allows you to learn at your own pace.  He has a good method of teaching and provides a lot of insight to everything related to music.  If you want to take your guitar playing to a new level and get inspiration, Rich is the one to go to for guitar lessons.  Not only is he a great teacher, he is a really talented musician.

Before Rich Fusco, I was a self-taught guitar player and could fumble my way through a few songs.  With his lessons, I've been able to experience astonishing successes like performing in a professional recording studio, on a ten-year residency on Bleecker Street/New York City, in New Orleans and even at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  I credit my progress entirely to Rich and my willingness to work.  My guitar skills and enjoyment of music has improved immeasurably since taking lessons with him. He is a rare gem of a teacher.  If you want to improve your playing, ears, knowledge, tone, and attitude, so you're in the top one percent of all guitarists, consider taking lessons with Rich Fusco.

Besides writing music, recording, producing, and playing on the road, the thing that gives me the greatest enjoyment is bragging about my students!   Here are photos of some of them.  It is my privilege and my pleasure to have such excellent people study their art here in the studio!  Thanks to everyone for contributing photos.
