I took guitar lessons from Joe Belmont for several years. Joe is insightful, super talented and cared about my progress as a student. I am now playing electric guitar on a gospel church, and using many of the techniques that Joe taught me. Thank you Joe Belmont!
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.
I have been taken guitar lessons from Mark for 5 months and the level of skill and knowledge I have gained in this short time has been amazing. Mark's approach to lessons each week is structured, motivating and fun. I have accomplished being able to read music and play various Christmas songs during the holiday season which my family enjoyed as well. On a healthier note, after a stressful shift as an RN, I find playing my guitar dissolves all my stress away. Learning to play the acoustic guitar has always been on my bucket list and I look forward each week to my lesson in order to further develop my skills.
Bob is an excellent teacher! I have been taking bass guitar lessons with him for the past 4 months. As an adult just beginning to learn the bass, I am very happy that Bob tailors the lessons for me and my interests. From the beginning, we played songs from musicians that I enjoy (Black Sabbath, The Kinks, The White Stripes) and not the simplistic Mary Had a Little Lamb stuff you find in most beginning guitar books. Bob also incorporates music theory into our lessons in a fun and interesting way. For example, we'll be working on a Black Sabbath riff and he'll use it to demonstrate the pentatonic scale. Bob is kind, friendly, and professional. Our lessons start on time and he uses every minute of the lesson to its max. I am always excited to go to each lesson. I would highly recommend Bob to anyone looking to learn the guitar or bass guitar!
I love working with Lynn. I am just starting to learn the guitar and she has been a great instructor. She is very patient but also makes sure to encourage you when you are doing well! I have enjoyed every lesson and am excited to keep learning!
My son was bored with guitar because his previous teacher only did "book work." Mike asked my son what type of music and songs he liked, and used them to teach him his chords and eventually apply what he learned to any song. My son has learned to read music as well as pick up the song just by listening. Mike is a patient and passionate music teacher!
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.
I hired Preston for guitar lessons this summer and met with him for three lessons before having to go back to school. Preston is a real chill guy, with an incredible beard and even greater passion for music. He'll listen to your questions patiently (I had thousands) and enthusiastically give incredibly thorough answers that, although sometimes may circle around to a few different topics, always come back around with really interesting insight to boot. Although he's a talented guitarist, probably the best things about Preston are his personality and availability. He and I texted about problems I was having with learning a song or scale, and he would (and still does, actually) email me with exercise suggestions. Great guitarist, better guy. Definitely check him out no matter what you're interested in learning on guitar!
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.
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.
We do unique and off-the-wall on-line guitar lessons that really work. We teach our students to learn guitar fast and easy for a fraction of the expense of conventional methods. Watch our lessons over and over until you get it right!
I believe in honesty and integrity. I believe in giving 100%.
I have over 10 years of experience in guitar playing. I have experience in genres that range from jazz and blues to metal and punk.
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 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 will teach anyone who wants to learn how to play the guitar. I can teach students chords, tablature, scales, some music theory, rhythm, and picking techniques. I like to play rock, blues, jazz, and some bluegrass/country stuff. I am no shredder, but I can pick out some tunes. Let me teach you if you are interested.
I teach beginners and intermediate guitar students who have an interest in learning how to reach their goal of playing music on the guitar.
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 am looking to teach people how to get started up to some more advanced topic by making the material easy to understand .
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.
