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
I have taken guitar lessons from Alan Donati for a number of years in order to better understand music. Being a weathered rock/blues drummer myself, I can attest that Alan is a very accomplished musician and seasoned music teacher who learned his craft via years of playing in rock, blues and jazz bands as well as attending Berklee as a solid foundation. Alan can teach a number of instruments well such as guitar, bass and piano alongside incorporating music theory with the practical applications. He is very adapt with technology as well as “old school”. I have seen Alan teach many students with great patience with tailored attention to the particular student’s interest. Some veteran musicians can only play well but not teach. However, Alan can obviously do both. And so I am giving Alan an outstanding review and rating.
Wanted to take piano lessons, so I called the owner, Kris, and he made me feel very confident and comfortable in going with his studio. Charlie, my piano teacher, is very good. He's attentive, patient, and most importantly challenges me. Great experience so far. Highly recommended.
I started taking guitar lessons from Bob around 9 months ago. Prior to that, I had been self-training for around 3 years. Thanks to Bob's methodical way of teaching, I feel that I have made more progress in past 9 months than I had in the 3 years before that. Bob's teaching focuses heavily on music theory, and that itself was a boon for me. Knowing the theory not only opened my horizons to improvisation, but it also helped me write music on my own. In addition to that, Bob is invested in every aspect of the development of my musical skills, including my playing technique, precision and--last but not the least--finesse of playing. There's a difference in playing guitar for x number of years, and playing guitar in a way that's worthy of recording in a studio or performing in front of a live audience. Bob's lessons have made that difference more obvious to me than they ever were. Lastly, Bob also customizes the lessons based on my immediate requirements. So, if I have to learn a particular song to cover, or compose something for my band, Bob gives that as much importance as I would. In all, I'd recommend Bob to anybody who's serious about guitaring, and wants help in taking their guitaring to the level of a professional.
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.
As someone who began teaching guitar professionally almost 3 decades ago I can tell you that Taunton Guitar Lessons is THE place to go for the training, mastery and mentoring you need to become the guitar player you want to be. I've seen Josh Beetler in action and he is among the best I've ever seen. You need look no further than what Josh not only can, but WILL do for you.
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.
Yaman is an excellent instructor. He's patient and always has a cheerful disposition and supportive attitude. It's obvious he truly adores the bass, and music in general, and that passion is infectious. I've been taking bass lessons with him for nearly a year and I've never had a lesson where I didn't leave inspired. My skills have risen exponentially faster than they would have without him, to the point where I'm now playing gigs! I couldn't recommend him highly enough.
Jacob is an all around quality individual who clearly has a passion to invest in those he comes in contact with! He is an exceptional and gifted musician and instructor. The students really connect with him and are motivated by his enthusiasm. And on top of it all, the guy can really play that guitar!! Some have a gift to play, some an ability to teach. Jacob has both! One last thing... He's also a genuinely nice guy! I would highly recommend anyone looking for a patient, passionate and exceptional music teacher to learn guitar, bass, piano and even beginner drums to experience a lesson with Jacob for themselves.
Mr. Sacks is a wonderful, passionate and dedicated teacher who can get kids excited about the bass and music. My son looks forward to his lessons. He is good at explaining the correct technique and teaches my son how to practice. This year my son made it to the state level for the first time after intensive lessons with Mr. Sacks. I highly recommend him to parents who want their kids to love playing the bass and appreciate music at a deeper level.
Excellent piano teacher, both my boys, 9 & 7yrs old enjoyed their lessons and made pretty good progress. Most of all, they enjoyed making music! Many thanks to a great teacher!
just what we'd hoped to find. Josh is professional and flexible, passionate about his work and he passes that love of music on in his lessons.
Dedicated and always encouraged my kid.
Karen is the BEST bass teacher. I have taken lessons from others in the past, and NONE of them matched Karen in terms of her clear communication, step-wise, logical instruction, and her ability to help me start building a solid musical foundation with fun and enjoyment. I recommend her without reservation!
I am a double bass teacher as well as a luthier. My combined skills allow me to ensure that my students play with correct technique on an instrument that is properly set up. In my experience, most of the troubles that come with new students come from playing on an instrument that isn't made to play well. Proper technique along with a well set up instrument will give my student every advantage when performing and reducing the chance of injury that comes from playing with bad technique or playing on a bad instrument.
I am a bass player from Memphis, TN, where funk, soul and those deep grooves live. I am looking for anyone who is serious about learning the bass guitar, I am your guy!
My goal as a teacher is to make sure that I completely understand the needs/goals of every student as individuals. It is by doing so that I am able to customize my lesson plans to fit each student, and form more open dialogue between students, parents, and myself. I also offer recital opportunities to those students who are up to the challenge of performing. Some will, and some will not, depending on their goals. Recitals are never mandatory, but always encouraged!
Coming from a very musical family, Joe started playing bass at the age of 9. While creating music for his own bands, Joe was quickly utilized as the go-to bassist for jazz band, chorus, string ensemble, and even musicals such as Les Miserable, Hello Dolly, etc. His interest in jazz brought him to Berklee College of Music, where he graduated with a degree in contemporary writing and production. Since then, Joe has toured the UK and Europe with international artist Christian Cuff and as a session musician and has shared the stage with artists such as B.B. King and James Otto. By playing styles from hip-hop to classical and anything in between, Joe now works as a producer/engineer in the world-class Rockinghorse Studios in Pittsfield, NH, while still finding the time to play numerous groups throughout New England. Joe's Teaching Philosophy: "My aim as a teacher is to help the student achieve his or her musical goals, which could be anything from strumming chords at a campfire to auditioning for a band. Either way, my intention is to inspire the student to practice and to inspire him/her to have fun. I strongly encourage students to be creative and develop their own style based on what they love about the music they listen to and ultimately want to play."
For many years I have worked with students aging from five years of age, my youngest student to date, to seventy-eight years of age, my oldest student to date. This experience encouraged me to create specific lesson plans that catered to each individual student's needs and level of proficiency on their given instrument be it Electric, Acoustic or Classical guitar, Electric Bass and Mandolin. The obstacles presented from teaching such a wide range of students have always been exciting to undertake and highly rewarding. This experience encouraged me to dive deeper in the psychology of learning and to refine my methods time and again. I find it endlessly intriguing to discover how each individual absorbs and integrates information differently and I love when my methods work across the board.
I teach the foundations of bass guitar through advanced levels. Lessons are designed to fit each student's interests and goals while covering essential topics to help them become accomplished musicians. The most important thing is the enjoyment of the instrument and music (that's why we play!) and that will be fostered through each lesson.
With 20 years of experience in the music business and the performance industry, I have a first hand knowledge on what it takes for a student to sound proficient in his instrument. I also enjoy working with people and teaching them chords and melodies of songs that make it fun for perspective students.
