Introduction: I've been teaching fun, personalized guitar lessons to kids and adults since 2011. Learning an instrument is an investment of time, energy and money and I have the experience, and passion for teaching to guide you or your child on your musical journey! I studied guitar at Berklee College of Music and have years of experience teaching private lessons, rock band class, music theory workshops and songwriting clinics. I enjoy teaching acoustic and electric guitar in the styles of rock, classic rock, heavy metal and pop and can help you learn music theory, ear training, improvisation and soloing, songwriting and basic music production. My advanced students seek me out to improve their knowledge of the fretboard. I love teaching music theory, scales, arpeggios, ear training and improvisation. I love making customized exercises and materials for my students that can cover any technique. My beginner students will enjoy my enthusiasm and patience. It’s not always easy in the beginning and I love coaching and encouraging my students to stick with it and reach their goals. I love guitar and look forward to being your next teacher!

I have always wanted to learn guitar, but I put it off well into my mid-thirties. I bought an electric guitar that sat in my closet for 3 year before finally signing up for lessons. I am very fortunate to have Steph Goyer teach me guitar. Her exceptional knowledge of the instrument and music theory plus her effective lesson style mixed with her enthusiasm for all music genres has lead me to unexpected outcomes. I am amazed by what I have learned in just my first 6 months. Even the first month surpassed expectations. I am excited for my lesson each week. I am very motivated to practice. I highly recommend Steph for beginners or advanced artists looking to build on their master skills. For me, Steph has entertained lesson songs by artists Lady Gaga, Hole, BOYO, BRONCHO, The Eagles, The Beetles .... basically whatever you want to learn or whatever inspires and engages you most. She is also accommodating when it comes to scheduling and has never missed a lesson. Great price and value!

I have been taking lessons with Steph for a little over a year now, and I have seen incredible improvement in my guitar abilities. Steph is able to meet students where they are—not only from a goals perspective, but from a life perspective. Even as I find myself struggling with a busy schedule, she is able to identify practice approaches that still help me to advance as a player. Steph is easy-going, highly knowledgeable, and an amazing guitarist—I'm excited to keep learning from her!

Steph is amazing! I was a little hesitant at the beginning taking music lessons over Zoom, but she managed to make it super fun. I have learned a lot and it’s only been a few lesson. She’s very knowledgeable! I saw her Facebook page before signing up for classes and I was blown away!! Not only is she a talented musician, but she’s also an incredible teacher that is compassionate and caring! Basically the best two quality a teacher can have. She cares about your progress which makes the virtual interaction feel more human :) I highly recommend her!!

Guitar Lessons

Steph genuinely loves teaching guitar to children, and our 9 year old son looks forward to his lessons with her every week. Her patience, excitement, and enthusiasm make her a perfect match for our son. She gets excited when he gets something right or when the light bulb clicks on after she teaches something new, and she takes the time to explain things and to encourage him when he doesn't quite understand. And it's super cool to hear Steph when she demonstrates riffs on her guitar. We're lucky to have found her and look forward to our son continuing to learn the guitar under Steph's instruction.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Purchase a 4 pack of lessons for 5% off Purchase an 8 pack of lessons for 10% off I enjoy teaching lessons in the comfort of my students homes. Prices can vary based on location and travel time

    Everyone is different and I like to tailor my teaching approach to the students goals and personality. We'll get to know each other and create a lesson plan that fits your needs

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I began playing guitar at the age of 9 studying mainly classical guitar for 3 years. I then moved on to jazz and rock at the age of 12 where I learned music theory and began improvising. During high school I played in a jazz ensemble, a big band, and was the front woman of my own funk rock trio. I then went on to study guitar performance and professional music at Berklee College of Music in Boston where I continued to develop my style and songwriting skills and formed the progressive metal group Protean Collective. We went on to release 4 albums, play hundreds of shows, tour the east coast and were nominated for 4 Boston Music Awards. I've had an active roster of private students since 2011 and have also been a rock band coach at Plugged In Teen Band Program in Needham, MA for the past 7 years. I've worked with kids of all ages, including those with special needs, and have taught workshops in music theory, song writing, and improvisation.
