Learn Guitar with Pat Russo

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.

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.

I really like Zak's teaching style. He's very easy-going and patient, and has an encyclopedic knowledge of music theory and guitar. Playing music is something that brings him joy, and that feeling that playing guitar is an awesome, joyful thing clearly comes across in his lessons.

Mike provided guitar lessons for my two daughters, ages 9 and 11, and I couldn't have been more satisfied. He was very knowledgeable, patient, and really made the music come to life for them. He came prepared with the music they wanted to learn and always would take extra time if they asked. I would wholeheartedly recommend Mike!

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.

Very professional, great with kids and adults . Immediately put my rather shy 12 year old at ease. Clearly talented and his love of music is contagious. Beautiful studio! Looking forward to more lessons.

Blackledge Guitar Institute

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.

I recently retired and with no prior music training decided to learn how to play the violin. I contacted Sarah Smongeski at Pakachoag Music School asking for lessons. Sarah not only met my need but explained that I would also gain self-confidence, not worry about making mistakes, take chances on new experiences, improve my memory, and have fun learning to play the violin. I discovered that music is a life-long learning experience. I am happy to be a student of Pakachoag Music School where Sarah and her professional staff will teach and support me along the way.

I hired Preston for guitar lessons this summer and met with him for three lessons before having to go back to school. Preston is a real chill guy, with an incredible beard and even greater passion for music. He'll listen to your questions patiently (I had thousands) and enthusiastically give incredibly thorough answers that, although sometimes may circle around to a few different topics, always come back around with really interesting insight to boot. Although he's a talented guitarist, probably the best things about Preston are his personality and availability. He and I texted about problems I was having with learning a song or scale, and he would (and still does, actually) email me with exercise suggestions. Great guitarist, better guy. Definitely check him out no matter what you're interested in learning on guitar!

    Danielle gave my daughter one-on-one guitar lessons at our house. She always came prepared, with lessons tailored to my daughters skill level and interests. She made learning fun by throwing in some easy to learn songs that would feel like a real accomplishment for a beginner. Plus, I liked to groove along while they played the Beatles and other classic rock hits together. I would highly recommend Danielle for her guitar expertise and her easy-going nature.

    About

    I am a trained guitar player with 16 years experience in writing, recording, performing, touring, and teaching. I have a rich background in a variety of styles of popular music and music theory. I have taken part in countless recording sessions for the past 16 years and have done session work for other musicians, had international write-ups and praise for various groups I've written and performed with over the years, as well as a background in bass guitar, piano, and voice as well. I currently have multiple private students and am looking forward to take on more. My lessons are appropriate for all age ranges, for the beginning and intermediate levels, and are tailored to the exact needs of the particular student in regards to physical exercises, music theory emphasis, and stylistic focus. I have an easy-going and friendly demeanor that people take an immediate liking to, and am incredibly supportive and patient with all my students in my goal to help them realize their musical potential. I also am a certified luthier from the prestigious Roberto Venn School of Luthiery in Phoenix, Az. A luthier in common terms is a guitar builder/repair person. This is an added bonus for my students due to the fact that I am qualified to upkeep and repair their instruments, which I do for free or at a discounted cost for students, depending on the nature of the upkeep/repair. While I have 16 years of experience and training, I am still relatively young (30 years of age) and still gig all around New England with a couple of rock groups. So, younger students are at ease with me and find they can relate to me and don't find me stuffy. Conversely, I handle myself in a professional manner, and am mature and well-spoken enough that older students are at ease around me as well, and will be pleased by my knowledge and appreciation of older, more timeless music as well. While I do not mind having students travel to my place for lessons, I do prefer to give the lessons at the customer's home in order to respect the privacy of my roommates. However, if the customer is not comfortable with the lessons taking place in their home, my home will suffice as it is quiet, drug-free and professional, and provides a pleasant atmosphere.

    About

    I have taught kids swim lessons before, and I am certified by Red Cross with a lifeguarding and water safety certificate, as well as CPR and First Aid training/ certificates. I have also given Piano and Voice lessons before and will be attending music school in the fall for opera studies to further broaden my studies in music. I am not just opera based, although that is the best thing for my voice. I also teach jazz, pop, and healthy musical singing! Singing should be something that is always fun, and freeing, so why not learn how to do it in the most comfortable, fun, and healthy way possible? As a teacher, I will recognize what my client would like to work on (whether it be a style of music, music history, music theory, or even basic piano lessons), while hopefully providing valid insight on how to really engage one's voice healthily. Voice lessons are very affordable (first 30 minute session free). Although I have given voice lessons at a regular rate before, I really would like the opportunity to meet new people and hopefully help them explore the amazing opportunities and fun times that go along with singing!
