I was a relative beginner to the guitar when I started lessons with Otis. From the first lesson he was patient, encouraging and enthusiastic. He tailors the lessons to the types of music and songs you are interested in. He has a wide range of music knowledge and styles which make him an ideal teacher who can help any student take that first step toward becoming a guitar player or help a seasoned player hone their skills. Highly recommended!

I took acoustic guitar lesson with Andy for 6 years before moving out of the area. He is an outstanding teacher. I learned more from Andy in those 6 years than in the 40 years prior of playing guitar. I highly recommend him for anyone from beginner to experienced.

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!

Great teacher that makes learning fun and easy to understand for players of all levels. I've been playing guitar for 20+ years. I decided to take guitar lessons (again) to ramp up my guitar playing and music theory knowledge. Rob has helped (and continues to help) me get to that "next level". - Pat D

As an adult student, I have been taking mandolin and guitar lessons from Steve for about two years. I would highly 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 demonstrabl y excellent at playing and teaching the instrument 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. I've 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. I've learned how to diatonic ally examine songs, understand rhythm signatures, identify different scales, solo, and perhaps most importantly, how to practice properly. Whether you're just looking to play your favorite song, or become a life long student of your instrument, Steve is definitely the guy to help you along.

Mark is an exceptional teacher. He has an immense knowledge of music theory and knows how to taylor his lessons to fit my skill and needs. I look forward to Mark's lessons because he always challenges me to learn something new and he makes it fun. Over the past 6 years he has brought my playing ability and music knowledge far past what i thought was possible. I highly recommend Mark for any music lessons, especially guitar!

I began taking voice lessons from Peter Hostage in May and have been highly satisfied with my decision to do so. If you are considering taking music lessons with Mr. Hostage, know that you can expect a high level of professionalism, a relaxed atmosphere, and most importantly, quality musical instruction. As someone who began singing at an early age, I have had the opportunity to sing both individually and as part of numerous groups. In just three weeks Peter has introduced me to technique that I had not been exposed in my 10+ years singing. I am confident that continued lessons with Mr. Hostage will enhance my vocal ability. The lessons are definitely worth the investment!

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.

About

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.

About

I am a 27 year old Berklee grad currently teaching out of my Malden music studio located off of route 28 and .7 miles from the orange line. I also teach out of Boston Guitar Works in West Bridgewater on Wednesdays and Saturdays. I teach guitar, bass, ukulele, music theory, and composition. I also provide guitar maintenance and modification services as well as transcribing and arranging for bands and individuals. I prefer to teach ages 12 and up but do make exceptions. The point of music is to have fun and I will customize every lesson to meet each student's individual needs.

About

My goal as a teacher is to make sure that I completely understand the needs/goals of every student as individuals. It is by doing so that I am able to customize my lesson plans to fit each student, and form more open dialogue between students, parents, and myself. I also offer recital opportunities to those students who are up to the challenge of performing. Some will, and some will not, depending on their goals. Recitals are never mandatory, but always encouraged!

About

For many years I have worked with students aging from five years of age, my youngest student to date, to seventy-eight years of age, my oldest student to date. This experience encouraged me to create specific lesson plans that catered to each individual student's needs and level of proficiency on their given instrument be it Electric, Acoustic or Classical guitar, Electric Bass and Mandolin. The obstacles presented from teaching such a wide range of students have always been exciting to undertake and highly rewarding. This experience encouraged me to dive deeper in the psychology of learning and to refine my methods time and again. I find it endlessly intriguing to discover how each individual absorbs and integrates information differently and I love when my methods work across the board.
