My first guitar instructor was my dad back when I was about ten years old. Fast forward about thirty years to 2003 when I started taking guitar lessons from Steve. You learn more than just playing a guitar with Steve. He teaches you how to read music and about music theory. You will appreciate other genres of music and maybe even a different instrument or two. I now have a mandolin and ukelele (along with a few guitars) that Steve is also teaching me how to play. I started lessons with Steve on a whime and am glad that I did. It has been a wonderful experience learning more about music and how to play an instrument. And I owe Steve a great deal of thanks and credit for making this experience fun.

At over 60, taking violin lessons for the first time could have been painful. Laura makes sure that it isn't. I love learning from her. She is a gifted teacher and talented musician who knows how to adjust lessons to the individual student and encourage without lecturing. I highly recommmend her for either performance or instruction...for any aged student!

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.

    Penny has been teaching violin to my sons since the last past 2 years. She is an awesome teacher who is patient and really connects well with kids. We started our sons on violin to "try-it-out" not wanting to invest too heavily into some high-priced equipment or high-pressure. Penny has been the perfect choice, she is patient and really connects with the kids to make music easy to learn and enjoyable. Our eight-year old really looks forward to the music lessons and has been enjoying playing violin since the beginning. Penny also holds recitals for her students, and our sons were very excited about performing in public. It is definitely a great exercise. Penny is committed and passionate about what she does and works at the students' pace to make music fun. I really recommend Penny as a music teacher!

    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.

    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.

      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.

      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.

        David was a great teacher! It was clear he had a great understanding and expertise in the fundamentals of the violin and absolutely knew how to build a person up from the ground up skill-set wise. He provided some great music which taught me well and I was able to excel quickly based on the music he provided and the lessons he taught me. He had a very pleasant demeanor and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone starting off new with the violin.

A little more if I have a long distance to drive. Parents of young students are strongly encouraged to attend all lessons, to take notes, to "be the teacher at home" and to supervise the student's practicing every day. Students are strongly encouraged to listen to recordings of each piece that is being studied.
