I was looking to take a few bass lessons as character research for a role, but I was pleasantly surprised at how much I truly enjoyed working with Shimon and learning the bass guitar. I have a hectic schedule and Shimon was very flexible and accommodating. Thanks for all you help and support! I couldn't have been more satisfied with my experience.

Started lessons about a month ago. Shimon has a very relaxed and 'organic' teaching style, and has very quickly gotten me thinking and hearing more in the music I'm learning. Very pleased.

My son has been receiving guitar lessons from Shimon for a couple of months now. From being a beginner then, my son is now very comfortable with the instrument and even practices notes independently in addition to the instructions. All this has been possible due to Shimon's commitment, perseverance and patience in passing on the knowledge. The one on one instructions, minus the commercial aspect the some of the established centers are, is working great for us. Would highly recommend Shimon to others looking to learn playing a guitar.

Shimon is a great teacher. I am an adult student with no guitar experience. Shimon has excellent patience and if you don't understand a concept one way he will show you another way. I feel that Shimon could teach anyone guitar at any level of experience or age. He has been very flexible on lesson times and dates. For Shimon's level of expertise and experience his price can only be stated as a bargain. So if you are considering lessons and you are looking for a Teacher that has it all: patience, superb knowledge and flexibility look no further Shimon is your teacher. I highly recommend him. Thank you Shimon for making guitar lessons fun and extremely jam packed with knowledge. Phil

I’ve had the pleasure of studying guitar under Shimon in his in-home Acton studio for a couple of years. He is an accomplished musician - knowledgable about music theory, composition and playing guitar and bass; and he is an authentic and kind person in his teaching style and his interactions. His Acton studio is an inviting, comfortable atmosphere in which to learn. Shimon encourages students to practice, to be themselves and to have fun playing music. He is a great musical mentor and has excellent rapport with students of all ages. I very much enjoy his lessons, value his guidance, and have improved my guitar playing skills under his tutelage. I highly recommend Shimon as an instructor for guitar and bass for students of all ages, abilities and musical styles.
