Gary is so very patient, and professional, with a great sense of humor and style! My daughter had a great 1st guitar lesson & can't wait for next week. Thanks so much Gary!
I started taking guitar lessons from Sandi Mascola when I was entering my freshman year of high school in 2004. I had zero musical experience beforehand but was interested, and she was one my best friend's aunts and I had heard great things. I fell in love with music, her teaching style, and the way I would leave each lesson learning something new. I ended up taking lessons for about 4 years, and I can honestly say Sandi taught me everything I knew about guitar, as well as life lessons along the way. I haven't taken a lesson since 2008, and still to this day refer to her as my aunt. She was an amazing mentor and role model and helped me grow as a guitar player and person. I don't have a bad word to say about her teaching style, and can truthfully say that it was the best money I've ever spent!
Dave is amazing. Hired him for guitar lessons for my son and I. Dave is punctual, personalizes our lessons based on our abilities, offers suggestions to maximize our experience, and is very personable. Would highly recommend him!!!
They have a lot of experience teaching guitar lessons to people with all levels of musical ability. I really enjoyed working with them.
Barb's Continuo Home Music Lessons provided home lessons to my son. Not only was the instructor very talented, but they knew exactly how to interact with a young person to keep his interest throughout the lesson and encouraged practicing beyond the lesson. Barb is always prompt and goes out of her way to accomodate scheduling issues.
Tommy has been an amazing guitar, bass, and audio engineering teacher. Recently, we've been working together on some college auditions involving jazz bass, which I knew little of in terms of techniques and terminology. With Tommy's help, I've learned what would have taken me forever, and I feel a lot better about the audition process.
Over the coarse of 6 or so years Chris Schreiner has given me countless one on one bass lessons. Not only is he a personable guy, he always finds inventive ways to help a student succeed; Professionalism (on time, proper equipment, and real life experience), clear articulation (Terminology and Explanations), and positive attitude will not only encourage you but motivate you to do well. His versatility is also a plus. He has no problem catering to peoples musical needs no matter how far out it may be. All in all, great guy, great teacher!
I love learning from Joey. I have never played a guitar before and have no musical talent what so ever. :) He gave me great recommendations as to where to buy a guitar and was even willing to come down and help pick out a guitar that was suited best for me. In our lessons, Joey breaks the chords down for me so that I can understand them easily. He goes over things from the lesson before so that I get it down pat. He is extremely understanding, flexible and a fun guy to learn from. While we are still going through different chords, (I am on my 4th lesson), I look forward to learning how to play songs with him in the near future. I would definitely recommend him to any one who would like to learn how to play.
I took guitar lessons from Joe Belmont for several years. Joe is insightful, super talented and cared about my progress as a student. I am now playing electric guitar on a gospel church, and using many of the techniques that Joe taught me. Thank you Joe Belmont!
Andrew Dapkin has been my guitar teacher and music mentor for over a year now and i wouldn't have it any other way. When Andrew first started teaching me could barely play, had little sense of tempo, and was rusty on reading formal sheet music, but I have overcome those hurdles since then. Andrew is patient,kind, but also holds the student accountable. If you practice according to your lesson plans and don't give up, you'll feel better about playing.
My wife and I hired James to play guitar for the processional and recessional of our wedding ceremony. We had very specific plans for the songs and arrangements we wanted to hear, and James was able to accommodate by learning and tweaking them in a very short amount of time. He communicated with us frequently throughout the process and sent us videos to make sure we were happy with the results. On the day of the wedding, he arrived on time and with the necessary equipment, and set things up with the coordinator/officiant so that we didn't have to worry about anything ourselves. And, of course, he played the songs exactly as we'd hoped, helping to make our ceremony a perfect and memorable one. James, I'm glad you found my listing here, and thanks for everything!
Dennis is a wonderful guitar instructor for my son! He is fun and encouraging, and let's my son choose the songs he would like to learn. We have had a great experience with Dennis!
Really great guitar player and teacher
I contacted Jeff re learning the bodram. He was very prompt in getting back to me. Because I do not have a vehicle for transportation,and I live way up in Blandford,MA I explained that getting there was a problem I was working on. Plus being handicapped would make teaching me a challenge. He offer to check with someone he knew that lives much closer,AND said that he would be willing to instruct me if my transportation issues were resolved. Very pleasant gentleman to talk to,and very encouraging. I am more determined than ever to get lessons!
Rob is a brilliant player and brilliant teacher. His knowledge of guitar playing and the music industry is truly impressive. Great guy too!
Ace comes to our lessons on time, and with a plan. She remembers what I've been practicing, and knows how to get me to the next level. She gives me her full attention for the whole time we're in the lesson, and when it's time to wrap it up, she leaves me with clear assignments for how to practice and what to practice - and it's always something fun, challenging and yet attainable that makes me want to come back to my instrument. Ace makes it fun to work hard at getting better.
My son was bored with guitar because his previous teacher only did "book work." Mike asked my son what type of music and songs he liked, and used them to teach him his chords and eventually apply what he learned to any song. My son has learned to read music as well as pick up the song just by listening. Mike is a patient and passionate music teacher!
Joshua is accessible and has a calm, relaxed teaching style. He has expertise in modern Jazz harmony and technique, but I think he could teach any style. I highly recommend.
