Guitar lessons for my daughter are going very well. I sat through her first lesson and very much liked his teaching style. One thing I liked was that Bryson's aim was to bring in a drummer and bassist once she got the basics down so that she could get used to playing and jamming with other musicians which is my daughter's goal anyway, so, she's very pleased.

Before taking piano lessons with Rebecca, my only experience with musical instruction was through elementary and junior high. Rebecca's training and personal dedication to music makes her an extraordinary teacher. We use the Suzuki books, which I love because that's what I used for violin and flute. She supplements those favorites with really nice adult-learning-centered books on theory. As an adult learner, this was helpful, because I could read through these brief books, but then had the terminology to look up my questions online or know what to ask in lessons. The lessons are so fun and well organized. We work on the songs in the books (which included CDs of the songs so you can hear what the song might sound like if you practice enough) and she would help me with songs I brought in too. Rebecca is so kind, and is great with my five-year-old too. Really, Rebecca is an excellent music instructor. Her academic background, many years of actually playing piano and singing, knowledge of the music available and books, and variety of students -- all make her a versatile teacher, capable of helping anyone learn to the play the piano in whatever style they are interested in. Plus, she is an incredible person. I look forward to piano lessons with her.

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.

Bernie has been a great drum teacher for my two daughters. He is dedicated, committed, fun and with a great teaching attitude. Always arrives on time and ready to start. A big plus for Bernie, is that my 2 daughters have autism, and he is able to engage with them pretty effectively, and redirect them when needed, as their attention and focus shifts. I fully recommend him for Drum lessons and for kids in the Autism spectrum!

I just started working with Michael and I already feel more confident and have more fun playing the guitar than I had in almost a year. His immense love and knowledge of music is astounding and he translates that into lessons that make me excited to learn more. He is very approachable, highly responsive and extremely flexible. I cannot recommend Michael enough to begin or continue your musical education!

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

I can show you how to play full songs and eventually to sing along. I don't do a lot of finger picking or things like that but rather I teach foundations in rythem guitar.

I address the players style and technique for development

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!

About

I offer beginning and intermediate guitar instruction, a curriculum based in practical techniques (blues) to learn songs and quickly enjoy music-making.
