Schedule a trial guitar lesson for 7 year old daughter to gauge her interest and response to it. It went really well. Worked with Tony, he was passionate and was able to engage her and maintain her interest. We signed up for more lessons. Nice experience overall, good customer service and follow up.

Andy at Coastal Music Studios was beyond helpful answering all my questions and getting my son set up with guitar lessons. The studio is very low pressure and accommodating! My son has an excellent teacher and is enjoying his lessons.

Glen comes to our home to teach our ten year old once per week. He is great with our son and has sparked an enthusiasm in our son that has him so excited about playing the guitar and learning about music! Glen is also a very talented musician - but I'm mostly impressed with his ability to connect with our son. I would HIGHLY reccomend Glen as a music teacher.

As a professional musician (guitar and vocals) that does not read music, I have had a few lessons with this guy to help with my reading of music, theory, and soloing. He presents everything to me in a very understandable manner and exudes the utmost patience in getting me to the next level. I have never had music lessons before so this seemed daunting at first but now I have broken through long standing plateaus and I am reinvigorated to push myself to the next level. I will definitely be continuing this approach with Mr violin in the future.

We have had the BEST experience with the guitar instructor from Fine Tune Academy. My son had to prepare for college auditions and we are so happy to have found this school. The instructor is incredibly knowledgable AND fabulous to work with. My son always looks forward to the next lesson. Awesome!!

My son Max has been taking lessons with Ed for several years now and we couldn't be happier. Ed is an awesome music teacher with many talents. His knowledge of playing in a band has been a great help for my son. Ed will jump in and play the bass line with Max if needed. I love that he can teach vocals, guitar, bass, and drums and get in there and jam with my son, too. Ed's awesome! I'd highly recommend him if you're looking for a music teacher. Terry

About

As a graduate of Berklee College of Music, I offer a strong set of musical tools in such things as music theory, harmony (chords), songwriting/composition, recording equipment and techniques, ear training and (if you like) musical notation, in addition to just how to play an instrument. What this gives you is a skill set that goes beyond just moving your fingers on the strings, and helps you understand how music works, how your instrument fits into it, and ultimately helps you teach yourself as well!

An ocean view! I try to keep it funny and laid back. I specialize in personalization - wherever the student is on their journey, if they just want to learn in how to play their favorite songs by their favorite bands/artists, or they just want to learn only blues licks, or they are starting out fresh to learning guitar, whatever they wish to learn I cater to them. I can also create a more structured curriculum as well!
