I was a relative beginner to the guitar when I started lessons with Otis. From the first lesson he was patient, encouraging and enthusiastic. He tailors the lessons to the types of music and songs you are interested in. He has a wide range of music knowledge and styles which make him an ideal teacher who can help any student take that first step toward becoming a guitar player or help a seasoned player hone their skills. Highly recommended!

I took acoustic guitar lesson with Andy for 6 years before moving out of the area. He is an outstanding teacher. I learned more from Andy in those 6 years than in the 40 years prior of playing guitar. I highly recommend him for anyone from beginner to experienced.

My 9 year old daughter has been taking guitar lessons with Julie for a year. She has progressed nicely and really enjoys the lessons. The end of the year recital was wonderfully entertaining and a great goal for my daughter to work towards. Julie has been easy to communicate with and I have already recommended her to other mothers.

My partner and I scheduled lessons together with Jaime to learn the guitar. We are both beginners, so we chose Jaime because of his several reviews of being very knowledgable about the guitar and patient with people, which proved to be true. Overall, our first experience with Jaime was great! We really enjoyed our lesson and look forward to many more.

Grey has been giving guitar lessons since he was in high school. He taught my 30 year old boyfriend how to play well when he was only seventeen. He went on to teach my twelve year old daughter the basics, in the summer before he left for college. He is patient and proficient as a player and as an instructor. He has grown significantly in the years since, and is a highly sought professional.

David has been teaching me guitar for a little over a month now. I have already seen great advances in my technique, rhythm, and understanding of music. I have been playing guitar for 9 years off and on, and I have never had professional lessons. I can say that after a month with David, I am playing better than I ever have and believe that my guitar playing skills will continue to progress rapidly with David's help. His teaching technique is very casual and fun, almost conversational, and his insights are spot on. He is exactly what I hoped for in an instructor when I started looking at guitar lessons and I would highly recommend him for anyone who loves guitar, regardless of their skill level. He is a 'must hire' professional!

I started private guitar lessons with Bob Wolfman a year and a half ago, with the hopes of getting past a guitar playing rut I’d been stuck in for a few years. I felt I had reached a plateau and that I wasn’t progressing much since I switched out of the music program at UMASS Lowell. Within my first few lessons with Bob I was already progressing more than I had with ten years of prior instruction! In my first three months of lessons with Bob, I was very impressed by his ability to simultaneously cater to my direct interests (music theory and improvisation) while exposing me to concepts I didn’t realize I needed to work on to get there (sight-reading, aural skills, chordal arrangements). We quickly set up a lesson plan and goals geared towards getting me where I wanted to be. I was so happy with the results that I eagerly enrolled into his year-long “Apprenticeship Program”. This program allowed us to plan my curriculum and keep me on track (and I had a realistic practice schedule that I could stick with). Last year, I progressed so much that I decided to start my second year in the program. I’m really glad that I did!! One of several things that separates Bob from a lot of other instructors is his focus on his students. He always sticks to his commitment to making me a better guitarist and musician, even if that means giving me extra time when he has it. And with his 30+ years of experience as a teacher, he knows how to personalize my lessons in a way that works for me. I highly recommend him for people just starting out on guitar, bass, etc., or for those like me who just need a kick start to get out of a rut. I am reaching my goals to becoming an accomplished pro guitarist very soon. Tyler Schmitt Apprenticeship Program Guitar student with Bob Wolfman

Jonas has been teaching our daughter, Allison, for about 7 years. I can't begin to say enough about Jonas as a teacher, mentor and person. He has given Allison such confidence in herself and her music . . . Jonas always goes above and beyond - encouraging Allie to perform and write music, working 1 on 1 with her to record her music and getting her used to mics and sound systems. He has been a huge influence on Allison over the years . . .she truly looks to Jonas as one of the people she admires most in her life. We can't recommend Jonas' Guitar Lessons enough!

"I started Portuguese lessons with Paulo because I wanted a native Portuguese speaker as a teacher. What I got was SO much more. Paulo is very passionate about his language, his teaching, and clearly cares whether the student is understanding and assimilating the lessons presented. His training and career as an Opera singer provides him with flawless and beautiful pronunciation that is literally music to my ears. Because of his voice training he can also hear the slightest deviation in my own pronunciation and accent, allowing me to slowly perfect my own Portuguese pronunciation. The lessons are paced well, not too fast, not too slow, and I can vary the pace as I need to. I've studied several languages before and have never enjoyed the process as much as I do with Paulo. Because Paulo is so personable, I'm laughing while learning my way to fluency!" Rick Oliver

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Jacob is your guy. What you look for in a teacher is someone who ENJOYS teaching you, is patient, and allows you to enjoy what you're doing. You can tell Jacob cares about what he does and he cares about teaching someone the guitar. In a short period, I've learned a ton from him and he's even gone out of his way to send videos of stuff I've needed to practice. If you're looking for an instructor, Jacob is the man for the job!

We hired Jon to perform classical guitar for our wedding ceremony. We were late in the planning stages, and hadn't spent enough time thinking through the ceremony music. Jon made a number of suggestions, and we found several selections we liked. Knowing he was experienced with previous weddings, and confident, was reassuring, especially since some of the details were still being worked out at the last minute. In the end, his playing was fantastic, and the music perfectly suited our procession, setting a beautiful tone for an unforgettable evening. Jon is an excellent musician and a true professional, and I can't recommend him highly enough.

Matt is a wonderful teacher and person. He sincerely wants to help people reach their potential and goals for learning guitar. Not only does he spend the time to get to know your background and areas for improvement, but he also caters to your particular style (blues, folk, classical, metal) and is flexible schedule-wise. I completely recommend Matt as a teacher. I have tried many instructors before and none have come close to Matt's patience and willingness to adjust his explanation style to fit your needs.

Had a really good experience with Arnie. He was very flexible on the timing and came prepared with some sheet music for some songs that I had expressed interest in learning. Overall, very friendly and patient with me as I bumbled my way through ukulele for the first time. Learned a lot about how to hold the instrument, strumming patterns, and reading music and general know-how about the instrument. Highly recommend Arnie, speaking as a beginning ukulele student.
