Lead Guitar Workshop
Suke Cerulo

My name is Suke Cerulo and I love to play and teach guitar.

I’ve been playing for 35 years and professionally for over 25. I believe in being not only a guitarist but a musician.

I started taking lessons when I was 12 and continued until I graduated Berklee College of Music.

My real education came when I joined the band Schleigho and toured the USA averaging 200+ shows a year. We released 5 albums and two were on a label we signed to created by members of  the Allman Brothers Band. We toured extensively with Derek Trucks and many other east coast bands over the years.

In 2003 I moved to NYC and started teaching at NYC Guitar School where I became the Directer of The Lead Guitar Program and wrote 5 Lead Guitar courses.  I have taught over 15,000 lesson/classes in that time and learned to master my teaching skills along side my playing.

It’s all about people, music and growth

Check out what some of these guitar players say

Kaylyn Marie

Suke's background as a professional musician and lifetime student of guitar make him a master of teaching anyone at any level in their musicianship. I came to Suke as a self-taught guitarist of 14 years and he not only helped me learn what I aimed to learn but he also clarified the musical vocabulary and theories behind what my ears and hands naturally knew. His lessons have exponentially helped me navigate the guitar, expedite my songwriting process, and expand my abilities to collaborate with other musicians. - Kaylyn Marie

Mike Lawrence

"Suke is more than just a guitar player who is extremely knowledgeable (check his resume) and extraordinarily talented (check his resume!) He is an equally superb guitar teacher. He has a patient, friendly, encouraging manner that puts the learner at ease, and consequently makes learning a pleasure. Thanks to Suke, I have learned more than I thought possible about using modes and the what, why, and how of playing the Blues. Playing guitar is now more pleasing than ever, and it keeps getting better. I have no doubt that Suke can do the same for you."

Leigh Celent-Castle Black

Before even meeting Suke, I was told how amazing he was as both a player and a teacher. Not only did I know this to be true at our very first lesson, but Suke has continued to exceed my expectations in terms of what a guitar teacher can be. He is extremely patient, knowledgeable, humble and crafts lessons in a way that makes sense for the individual. His musical knowledge expands well outside of just the guitar, and our lessons very often touch on other areas of music that help me to continuously grow as a musician.
