High praise for Otis Read. He is a talented musician, and shares his musical creativity and teaching skills with me every Friday morning. He has done so since September 2017. Otis is attentive, patient, congenial and enthusiastic. He has innovative answers for the numerous questions I have about chords, reading music, fingerpicking—anything that comes up during our lessons. He brings himself totally to these lessons, never preoccupied or rushing through them. I am always curious, and he takes the time to show me alternative keys for various songs, styles/methods of strumming/plucking as well as inventive “moves” on the guitar. I have learned so much in the nine months we’ve been working together. Otis is also honest, no false praise from him. He challenges me weekly, making me a better player. When I get discouraged about being unable to negotiate a complicated chord or frustrated with my lack of plucking agility, he’s always encouraging and supportive. One anecdote: Several of my musicians friends,—guitar, mandolin and stand-up bass —were playing at my house recently during a big party. They insisted I play with them—I was petrified, deer-in-the-headlights intimated. I got my guitar and sat in with this talented group, and while I’m not in their league at all, I was able to handle the material and sound good. The musicians complimented me and the rest of our friends applauded. Wow! Thank you, Otis!

Guitar Lessons : I had a good experience with Andy. I had to stop lessons for a long out of town trip. Plan on starting back in the spring 2014. I had a mixed bag of guitar skills and he was able to focus on what I needed to learn and show me how to do it. Thanks

Matt S.
Verified review

I started taking guitar lessons with Pat back in April and the amount of progression I've made since then is stunning. Before meeting him, I had no clue how to even hold a guitar properly, but in just under five months, I can now play along to many notable songs from the 80's, 90's and today. Whether you're a fan of classic rock, grunge, blues, country or modern rock, Pat can literally teach you any song that you desire and have you playing it efficiently after a couple of sessions. I couldn't imagine having another guitar instructor other than Pat Russo, so if you're interested in learning how to play, he is your guy. So go ahead and book that first appointment, it'll be well worth your while.

I have three guitar lessons with Evan and he has already given me so much great stuff to work on! I had been teaching myself for about six months, but Evan has done so much more for me and shown me so many ways to improve. I am really looking forward to continuing learning from him.

Pierce and I are so very grateful for Matt. He is the guitar teacher and role model I wish I had found as a young girl and I am so very thankful we have met him. Pierce looks forward to his lesson each week. I watch him as he enthusiastically engages in each lesson and I just love Matt's energy, spirit, kindness, patience, and method. Matt is amazing with children and he creates an environment that is friendly and inspiring.

Mrs. Barone is a great instructor.  Mrs. Barone teaches his students in a patient and understanding way and he provides and helps to build a strong foundation for his students.  Besides, Mrs. Barone has broad and deep knowledge in the classical guitar specifically and music in general.  I encourage you to enroll and take lessons with him because he will help you to achieve your goal in the future.

It was so easy to find and the cutest cat greeted us once we parked and walked us to the door. That's a welcoming committee! It was a very cozy space, like home or the home of a good friend. The staff was super friendly and my boys will be starting their lessons this coming week!

Dave's Guitar Instruction

Verified review

Dave has been my guitar instructor for the past 8 years, since I first began playing at age 60. He has a most effective teaching technique which allows skill building while permitting musical interest and direction to evolve. He is strongly suited to instruction in many genres including Classical/Flamenco, Jazz, Folk and Acoustic Rock.I have seen him work well with quite young students and those considerably older than my age of 68. Quite honestly, it is nearly impossible to request a song that Dave cannot play, transcribe, and find a key in which to play the song comfortably. He writes the charts for his latin jazz band, so my occasional forays into the world of music theory have also been well supported by Dave.

Verified review

When I struggled to get the technique right, he not only showed a lot of patience, but he tried various methods of explaining/demonstrating the lesson until I got it. After a little bit of practice, the piece that I struggled with through the first half of my lesson feels like second nature to play. I highly recommend Blackledge Guitar Institute for guitar lessons, no matter what level you're at.

    Awesome experience. Mike is experienced, his lessons are well thought out. Challenging, but not enough to get me discouraged. You can tell he loves what he does. Would definitely recommend.

    Mr. Fred Delgizzo worked around my schedule for my first 30 minute guitar lesson. He was very willing to meet me where I'm at; a beginner when it comes to music and a complete stranger to the guitar. He is very friendly and patient with me. The only negative is that my fingers hurt, but I don't believe even the best of teachers can do anything about that. #waitingforcalouses
