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.
Shane is an awesome guitar teacher! He is very laid back, fun, and pays attention to where you are as a student. He pushes you, but also makes sure you're still having fun because he knows that's what it's all about. I highly recommend him as a teacher - and the G4 method is easy to follow. Instead of grabbing your usual beer and a Lyft, spend the cash on guitar lessons you have always wanted to take!
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.
David has been teaching me guitar for a little over a month now. I have already seen great advances in my technique, rhythm, and understanding of music. I have been playing guitar for 9 years off and on, and I have never had professional lessons. I can say that after a month with David, I am playing better than I ever have and believe that my guitar playing skills will continue to progress rapidly with David's help. His teaching technique is very casual and fun, almost conversational, and his insights are spot on. He is exactly what I hoped for in an instructor when I started looking at guitar lessons and I would highly recommend him for anyone who loves guitar, regardless of their skill level. He is a 'must hire' professional!
He is the best teacher ever with 50 years of experience! Recommend to anyone looking to REALLY learn the guitar or banjo or bass or uke!
Just started doing a few lessons for guitar but have plans to do singing lessons as well. He is versatile and flexible and is working on what I need for the goals I have. Great guy and worth the money so far.
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.
As an adult student, I have been taking mandolin and guitar lessons from Steve for about two years. I would recommend him unquestionably to any prospective student looking to take music lessons. Steve is a down-to-earth instructor who is not only eager to help his students learn but demonstrably excellent at playing and teaching the instruments he teaches. Steve has introduced me to a variety of music from a theory viewpoint, but is eager to help his students define their own path, reflective of their particular musical tastes. Ive played an array of bluegrass, jazz, blues, and classical music with Steve. Not only has my playing dramatically improved, but my appreciation for the music has improved exponentially. Ive learned how to diatoni cally examine songs, understand rhythm signatures, identify different scales, solo, and perhaps most importantly, how to practice properly. Whether youre just looking to play your favorite song, or become a lifelong student of your instrument, Steve is definitely the guy to help you along the path of musical discovery.
Chris is very professional, responsive and friendly. My daughter can't wait for her next guitar lesson!
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.
I’ve been learning guitar on my own for a while now but working with Devon has already made me get better so much quicker. He knows just about every type of music so he makes it easy to learn whatever songs you like. It’s clear he’s got a masters degree I music but he’s such a nonjudgmental and chill teacher. Recommended if you want to learn guitar, bass, ukulele or how to make electronic music.
We have been working with Wake for a few months and he is awesome!! He is smart, creative and makes learning fun. His knowledge about music is impressive and he is able to adjust to our child's desire to advance in guitar as well as with overall music theory. He is able to change his teaching strategy based on her level of understanding. When met with a challenge of a broken arm. Wake quickly rose to the occasion and adapted to help our daughter continue her learning! Impressive response time, adaptation and eager to help a serious student.
George has been teaching guitar to my son for the past 3 years. My son looks forward to his lesson every week. George has really taken the time to understand my son's musical interests, strengths and weaknesses and constructed the lessons around it. My son often continues playing the guitar long after George leaves the lesson. He just feels extremely motivated and enthusiastic after the lesson. We hope that he will continue to teach guitar here for a long time.
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!
I've been in the Rock N' Roll trenches for over 12 years. I've earned my stripes as a guitarist and song writer and am ready to pass on what I know. To what I've learned, through experience, with others.
I am a bass guitar and keyboard performer and teacher. I've toured internationally, and have done recording and TV. I am playing rock, jazz, blues, doo-wop, soul and disco. I also teach improvisation.
I teach guitar to people who would enjoy learning the art. I teach all genres and all styles. Whether you are a beginner or advanced, I can show you something that you didn't know before.
I make music simple and fun for students.
Brant knows the learning process and details of body mechanics as they apply to playing guitar and he has honed his teaching skills through over 15 years of offering private guitar lessons to students in the greater Boston area ranging in age from 10 to 70, from complete beginners to other professional guitarists. In short, he knows how to teach you what you want to learn. If you're looking for a guitar teacher in Boston, whether your dream is to strum your first chords, improvise like Wes Montgomery, write a great prog-rock tune, or be the next Segovia, the learning environment Brant provides at his studio in the South End is one that encourages you while stretching you to achieve more than you thought you could. He caters to all levels, from complete beginners to other performing musicians. Beginning guitarists, you will develop a solid foundation in technique and concepts while learning the tunes you want to play. If you're taking more advanced guitar lessons, you'll learn how to overcome roadblocks in development, deepen your understanding of the instrument and of music, and come to see the guitar as a beginner does - full of potential. Regardless of level, Brant focuses a good deal of attention on "how" to practice, not just what to practice, and on developing a unique curriculum for each student. Everyone also has access to a professional recording studio for any projects they may wish to share.
