Verified review

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!

Dave's Guitar Instruction

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.

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 Stan as a guitar teacher. I had never played before. Not only is he a great teacher but he's a nice guy. Always shows up on time and flexible to my schedule. After a few months I am further along than I ever thought possible. I would recommend Stan to anyone looking for 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.

    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.

    Both my daughters took guitar lessons with Wes. Hands down he is the one of best in the area. Wes has the ability to reach anyone at any level and brings out the absolute best in them. He listens to the individual student and understands their needs and desires to help bring out their personal best. Wes is versatile and talented and we were fortunate to know Wes and be taught by such a consummate professional. He relates well to any age level and doesn't push his music repertoire/agenda onto his students but gives them the opportunity to explore their style and genre of music freely. I highly recommend this fine and talented musician and teacher!!

    Jason Martin is a thoughtful dedicated musician who has a great teaching style. He is always prepared, professional and patient. His drive to better himself while pushing others is what is truly special about Mr.Martin. He has been playing for over 20 years and it shows. He is comfortable teaching Metallica as well as Scruggs. He has an amazing selection of instruments so you can try different tunings or stringed instruments. He has you work on pieces of your interest right away, which keeps you engaged. I do not think you could find a better teacher anywhere.

      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.


      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.

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


      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.


      Classical piano and music theory are taught. Get 40 minutes of piano lessons with singing, drawing and a lot of fun! There will be a performance twice a year.


      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 teach beginners and intermediate guitar students who have an interest in learning how to reach their goal of playing music on the guitar.


      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.


      My name is Alex Balla, and when you sign up for lessons with me, you will receive: - Half hour- to hour-long lessons tailored to your needs - A firm foundation in the basics that will enable us to move forward - My custom method that gets students playing the songs they want to play faster - Instruction in material that you want to cover When you take lessons from me, you'll be benefitting from the countless days and hours I've spent practicing and perfecting what I do. I do my best to eliminate all the fluff and get right down to business, so that you can start playing the songs you want to play as fast as possible. Don't hesitate to give me a call or shoot me an email. Lessons are $24 at the Music & Arts Center in Avon, CT. I'll be happy to address any concern, and answer any questions you may have. Call me to confirm, and I'll tell you how to sign yourself into my roster. I hope to hear from you soon!


      If you want to learn guitar but can't be bothered with classical technique but still have a firm appreciation for the bits and bolts of the craft (music theory), this is for you. We will start with chords and songs immediately and then begin to integrate theory and scales. Beginners and advanced alike are welcome.


      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.


      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.
