I have been teaching guitar for over 25 years. I started teaching almost as soon as I began playing as I wanted to make music with my friends. I grew up playing classic rock and metal and gravitated towards jazz in my teen years. I attended Berklee College Of Music and The New School Jazz Program. I also studied jazz improvisation and theory privately with Charlie Banacos for 10 years. I currently tour and record with the bands Six Feet Under (Metal Blade Records) Cannabis Corpse (Season Of Mist Records) well as other various projects in various genres.

I'm very passionate about helping you grow as a musician and am eager to pass along all of the tricks and tips I've discovered over my years of playing and learning. I still practice constantly myself, striving to find the most efficient ways to play and teach new techniques. We'll cover everything from fretboard knowledge, basic to advanced theory, soloing approaches in all styles, strategies for learning alternate picking/sweep picking and other advanced techniques, arpeggios and scales, learning your favorite songs as well as breaking them down to see how their constructed, fingerpicking/folk styles, note reading and many other topics. Sign up today and let me help you get to that next place in your playing!

I formulate a unique method for each student based on their strength and what they need to work on to overcome their weaknesses. Everyone learns differently so I try and formulate lesson plans that will help everyone grow as a musician. Whether you're applying for music school, trying to improve your technique or just want to learn how to play some of your favorite tunes, I have many ways to help you get to those places!

Ray was very patient with our 15-year-old nephew during a 90 min lesson. He said he learned something and enjoyed it. We will look at doing it again.

Mr. Suhy is a great teacher. Very professional, he got me playing across the fretboard in 30 minutes. He's great at answering questions and lessons are paced well.

Just had my first lesson with Ray. He's an incredibly cool guy and an incredible musician. He started by asking me what I'd like to work on, and from there we got right into it without wasting any time. Not only does he absolutely rip, but he knows his theory like the back of his hand, and I'm really excited to break out of my minor pentatonic habits and really learn the modes, among many other things, from Ray. Within 5 minutes of my lesson ending he'd sent me a personalized lesson plan with things we'd gone over and things I need to work on before my next lesson. I really can't say enough good things, and I'm stoked to be learning from him.

Ray is who I've been looking for in a teacher for a very long time. Very personable yet no nonsense approach. I know my playing will improve under his instruction.
