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 a 7 years old girl who plays the violin and she has been taking violin lesson with Angel for 2 years. Absolutely, she LOVES the lesson with him. His professionalism and experience with kids make the lesson so valuable. I can see when my daughter plays the violin, her sound, tone quality and even posture improved so much. I strongly recommend him if you are thinking of the lesson for your children. As far as I know, he is the BEST teacher and musician!! plus, he is always on time for the lesson.

I have been learning violin lessons with Etleva for a couple of months now. I really appreciate her patience driven teaching classes. She is an excellent tutor, who takes note of minute details in her students. She's also very compliant. I totally enjoy my music lessons with her. I am a beginner and I would totally recommend her.

It sounds like Steve will be a great fit for guitar lessons for my grandson. The lessons will be a Christmas gift so we haven't started yet.

My son has been taking lessons here for 10 years and is part of the All Star Band which gives kids/youth the opportunity to experience being in a band and putting on a live show. Lessons have helped him grown into a better musician and given him confidence. Everyone there is so nice and helpful. The instructors are great... I recommend them to everyone who asks where my son takes lessons.

Our extensive search for well rounded teacher who is great with kids is finally over. Ms. Kim has brought my kid to the next level where she is having fun learning to play the violin rather feeling as extra circular activity. She looks forward to her lesson every week.

    Maggie has been our daughter, Samantha’s, violin teacher since she was in pre-kindergarten and now Samantha is entering 5th grade. So we have worked with Maggie for approximately the past 5 years and absolutely adore her. We find her extremely professional. She is always on time for lessons, communicates well with both students and parents and provides both constructive criticism and praise when appropriate. She can be firm with the kids when necessary but also makes learning an instrument fun through in lesson games and group play/ensemble and suggestions for young children like reward charts. She wants to challenge the kids by having them learn new pieces and learn how to read music and makes helpful suggestions when appropriate, such as Suzuki camp and orchestra. She strives for excellence in each player and has high expectations. Our daughter responds well to her encouragement. Maggie also goes above and beyond. For example, when our daughter entered a talent show at school Maggie helped her learn the piece to get ready for the show. As a parent of three children, I appreciate Maggie’s flexibility and openness to discussion when we have had challenges over the years. I think she would be a wonderful instructor for your child and would highly recommend her.

    We have known Dennis Shafer for almost two years, in that time he has taught my now 10 year old son to play the clarinet and more recently the saxophone. He also managed and led a small group of students to form a band; all of which were beginners in their instruments. Dennis is a fantastic teacher, he is passionate and enthused and very much an inspiration for my son. His lessons are fun and he introduces different types of music. Thomas has developed well with Dennis and accomplished much. I would highly recommend him to others.

    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've had many music teachers for different instruments over the years, and Art is by far the best! I'm an adult beginner on violin, so I'm busier and learn less quickly than a kid. A lot of teachers don't have the patience for students like me! Art is incredibly patient, explains things in ways that make sense, and even puts up with my cheap, squeaky violin...I couldn't recommend him more!!

      Jodi has been teaching piano lessons in my home to my three children for over two years and we couldn't be happier. She has an easy way with the children, they have learned a great deal of theory, they play very well and they LOVE to play. I highly recommend Jodi Griffith as a piano teacher.

      Ms Gurfinkel is an extraordinary teacher. I have been taking lessons from her on a weekly basis for half a year now and my violin playing skills have grown tremendously. A little bit about myself, I am 24 years old, and I had been playing violin for two years when I was in middle school, and when I came to Ms Gurfinkel I had been on a hiatus for almost a decade. Ms Gurfinkel was able to see where my skill level was and taylor her teaching to my needs. She will give you challenging piece to practice but within your abilities. She know basically every classic piece so if there is one specific piece that you really want to learn, she can teach you! She is very nice, if you practiced the previous week, haha. If you haven't been practicing enough, she can tell and she will be strict on you, which is a good thing. And by enough practice, I mean generally one to two hours a day, around ten hours per week. If you want to take your violin playing to the next level, or if you want to start learning violin, come take lessons from Ms Gurfinkel, you won't be disappointed.

      Julian has been a great influence on my daughter’s musical growth. He holds her to an appropriately high standard while keeping the lessons fun and engaging. My daughter loves her lessons and the comprehensive practice strategy Julian provides. He has increased her endurance for practicing which has allowed her to make some significant technical leaps. Since working with Julian I’ve seen improvements in her technique and her commitment to her violin. I’d highly recommend him to anyone looking for exceptional violin instruction!

      Ellen is the consummate violin teacher. My children have been taking lessons with her for 14 years. I highly recommend her violin studio. Ellen is professional and infuses students with a love for music and their instrument. She challenges her students to excel; it is truly amazing what children can achieve with encouragement and excellent teaching.
