I have been taking classical guitar lessons from Bertrand for a few weeks and am pleased with the progress. Bertrand has a contagious music philosophy and a knack for intertwining genres. He emphasizes music theory beyond the guitar and is constantly interested in the structural foundations of the pieces I play.

My son is taking both vocal and guitar lessons. He is loving his sessions and learning a lot. He looks forward to his lessons every week (really). When evaluating Music Elements, Annita took the time to meet with me and view the teaching rooms so that I would feel comfortable. She also took the time to listen to what we were looking for for our son and paired us with an instructor that was a great fit. I highly recommend Music Elements!

Jaime has been a wonderful guitar tutor for me. I had no idea about guitar basics and here I am on track to start playing songs. It has been 2 months since i started class with Jaime and every class has been professional and personalized to my needs. He understood my strengths and corrected my mistakes. He consistently challenged me to move out of my comfort zone while playing. It takes patience to teach and Jaime has got it. He truly added value for the money I paid.

Brad is such a wonderful teacher! I started sending my 10-year-old daughter to him in September for the classical guitar and she loves him and her guitar lessons. Brad has really instilled a passion for music in my daughter and I never have to hound her to practice. My son has been listening to his big sister practicing and now wants to play the guitar as well and will start lessons with Brad this September! Brad is a very caring and accommodating teacher! So glad to have found him

A perfect match for my 15 year old daughter taking singing lessons. Amanda's knowledge, talent, and enthusiasm are contagious. She has fostered my daughter's confidence and developed her singing skills. I highly recommend Amanda. You become part of her singing family and she gives more than 100% of herself each lesson. I wouldn't go anywhere else!

Jeanne responded quickly to the request, was a very good communicator, and through the first two guitar lessons with my daughter, things seem to be going very well! I greatly appreciate her willingness to travel a fair distance to come to our home and conduct the guitar lessons. Highly recommended!

I started taking guitar lessons from Bob around 9 months ago. Prior to that, I had been self-training for around 3 years. Thanks to Bob's methodical way of teaching, I feel that I have made more progress in past 9 months than I had in the 3 years before that. Bob's teaching focuses heavily on music theory, and that itself was a boon for me. Knowing the theory not only opened my horizons to improvisation, but it also helped me write music on my own. In addition to that, Bob is invested in every aspect of the development of my musical skills, including my playing technique, precision and--last but not the least--finesse of playing. There's a difference in playing guitar for x number of years, and playing guitar in a way that's worthy of recording in a studio or performing in front of a live audience. Bob's lessons have made that difference more obvious to me than they ever were. Lastly, Bob also customizes the lessons based on my immediate requirements. So, if I have to learn a particular song to cover, or compose something for my band, Bob gives that as much importance as I would. In all, I'd recommend Bob to anybody who's serious about guitaring, and wants help in taking their guitaring to the level of a professional.

Jonas has been teaching our daughter, Allison, for about 7 years. I can't begin to say enough about Jonas as a teacher, mentor and person. He has given Allison such confidence in herself and her music . . . Jonas always goes above and beyond - encouraging Allie to perform and write music, working 1 on 1 with her to record her music and getting her used to mics and sound systems. He has been a huge influence on Allison over the years . . .she truly looks to Jonas as one of the people she admires most in her life. We can't recommend Jonas' Guitar Lessons enough!

I have been taking classical guitar lessons with Bill for more than five years. Bill observes me very carefully when I play pieces. He is very perceptive and he makes careful observations about my playing. He has pointed out issues with rhythm, and timing. He has shown me issues I had with hand position. He has commented on performance of the pieces regarding dynamics and bringing out the voices in pieces of music. Bill does not just make observations but he also offers solutions. I have found that his solutions work for me and allow me to resolve issues that I have encountered. I enjoy the lessons very much and I find my studies very gratifying.

Frankie Price is an incredible music teacher. I have been learning guitar from him for a couple of years. Anything I want to learn he is able to provide. How to do guitar solos, how to write songs, etc. He can answer any question you have about music. He is always on time and is very friendly.

Simply stated, Adam Levin is my esteemed teacher who has made the challenge of learning how to play classical guitar not only exciting but a pleasure from day one! Adam is a world class virtuoso guitarist whose enthusiasm, patience, and teaching talent enables him to transfer his knowledge of technique and interpretation to a student without being overbearing or overwhelming. My lessons with Adam are a source of inspiration to me, making me want to practice and come to the next lesson! I highly recommend this true gem of a teacher … you cannot make a better choice!

Josh is a rare, excellent teacher. First, I would mention his huge knowledge of music and instruments. Since he plays the guitar and the piano in addition to the chapman stick, he can apply knowledge from one instrument to the other, creating helpful metaphors for the experienced student. As for the inexperienced student, like me, he knows how to break down huge, intimidating concepts into bite size portions. He effortlessly comes up with metaphors and similes that really shed light on a variety of topics. This guy is a top notch teacher. p.s. he's very patient too!

Verified review

As a pop/jazz singer myself, I undertook weekly private lessons with Jordan at the New England Conservatory in the Spring 2018 Semester. It is sometimes hard to find both an excellent teacher and singer, yet Jordan excels in both areas. He is able to pinpoint exactly what you aren’t doing correctly and show you the right technique to be able to reach the high notes with confidence. If I ever didn’t understand the right method the first time, he would effortlessly find another way to explain the right technique until I finally understood how to implement it into my singing. He is the master of getting rid of bad habits with innovative voice exercises and I always felt like I improved after every lesson. I feel privileged to have studied with him during my studies at the conservatory and I highly recommend him without hesitation.

    Andres is the greatest guitar teacher EVER!! I started lessons with him knowing nothing about how to play the guitar and I'm absolutely amazed at how much I've improved! Also, I've been able to learn so many different styles of playing because somehow he has experience in pretty much everything. I'm not the fastest learner, but Andres didn't seem phased at all which made me feel so much more at ease. I can't wait to show off my skills this summer!!!!
