I have been taking guitar lessons from Pete for about 5 years now. The 5 years that I have been getting lessons have been a really good and I have learned so much about the guitar. Firstly, when I first started I was starting from scratch and had absolutely no idea on how to play. But now im able to play with pretty good speed and keep up with the fast songs. His teaching style I believe is very good and easy to understand, helping you excell in whatever you are doing. And it' not boring at all. Each lesson I have had, I have at least laughed a couple of times. So overall he is a great teacher who I would recommend to anyone if they were looking to learn the guitar or any other instrument he teaches.

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.

Matthew is a truly excellent guitar teacher. Not only is he a complete expert in all elements of playing and musicianship, he was able to respond exactly to my needs and wishes about how to improve my playing. He's patient, clear and also a lot of fun to work with! I give him my highest recommendation and would definitely send anyone who wanted to learn guitar to him for 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!

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.

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.

Paul is a great teacher and my guitar lessons with him have been very beneficial. I have improved my technique, learned a lot about music theory, and learned shortcuts to simplify songs and chords to make them easier for me to play.

Eli is the best guitar teacher I have ever come across. Outside of his one of a kind performance style he has a teaching style that has helped me TREMENDOUSLY by catering the lessons to EXACTLY where I am "at" on the instrument. His demeanor is warm, thoughtful, and engaging. I can't recommend him enough!!!

John is a very talented music teacher. His passion for music truly comes through in his ability to teach and inspire. John taught my daughter guitar for a year ... we were sad that he was moving, otherwise he would still be teaching her! She learned a great deal and developed a true appreciation for music. What impressed me the most about John is that he is very patient, has a great way of interacting with kids, and really enjoys what he is doing. If a lesson needed to go over by a few minutes, it always did. That is very unusual with private lessons ... and was much appreciated! We highly recommend John as a guitar teacher.

Joshua is accessible and has a calm, relaxed teaching style. He has expertise in modern Jazz harmony and technique, but I think he could teach any style. I highly recommend.

I believe in honesty and integrity. I believe in giving 100%.


As a person, I'm trying to stretch this thing out to 100 characters. The whole business seems disingenuous. I'll help you learn some guitar.


This is pretty much music as a second language. I teach reading music, music theory, the physical and aural aspects of guitar, ways around bad habits, righty and lefty, acoustic or electric. I have 42 years of playing and over 10 years of teaching.

We provide piano, voice, and guitar lessons. We provide private and small group classes for all ages, levels, and styles. We have great rates.


I have 50 years' experience in playing guitar. If you like what you hear on the website, I can help you learn to do it. I will help you learn to play the guitar, not play things on the guitar. I present a set of tools to allow to make the music you want. I am not a good teacher for someone interested in contemporary pop music or a complete beginner. I do not give weekly lessons. The intervals depend on the student. I can give enough in an hour to keep someone busy for many weeks. My fee is $50 per hour.


I am a college student who has played guitar for half of my life. I have experience in most styles as well as playing venues around Massachusetts. I want to teach in order to spread the joy that this instrument has brought me.


I am 19 years old and have been playing music since 4th grade. In my 4th grade, I played the viola. In the 7th grade, I picked up the clarinet. In the 8th grade, I picked up the bass clarinet. In the 11th grade, I picked up the alto sax and the acoustic guitar. I now teach my 13-year-old sis the tenor sax and my 9-year-old brother acoustic guitar.


Are you interested in learning how to play the guitar from an experienced instructor, but don't want to spend a lot of $? The time is now! - Over 17 years of experience. - More than reasonable prices. - You don't have to leave home; I will come to you! - I travel anywhere in the Worcester area. - I have a very flexible schedule. Call Chris with Late Night Studios now! Someone will contact you within 24 hours.


I teach beginners rock, popular, older classics, R/B, and basically what the student wants to learn. Most of my teaching and my own playing is done on an electric guitar, but I can use an acoustic, if requested. I am mostly self-taught, so I know how it feels to start from nothing, but I have played for over 40 years. I look at each student's abilities and desires and come up with the best way to teach them; not everybody can go by the book. I am extremely patient and easygoing and allow the student to learn at a pace in which they feel comfortable. I have a comfortable studio in Pittsfield, but am willing to travel for an hourly fee. If my travel distance has exceeded, we can still talk. I serve the Berkshires and beyond.
