My 9 year old daughter has been taking guitar lessons with Julie for a year. She has progressed nicely and really enjoys the lessons. The end of the year recital was wonderfully entertaining and a great goal for my daughter to work towards. Julie has been easy to communicate with and I have already recommended her to other mothers.

Taking guitar lessons with Jesse has been a great experience. He is a great teacher with lots of invaluable information that you couldn't learn from a book, and is very supportive of any ambitions I've had with my instrument. He goes above and beyond to the point of taking time to help students make the best equipment-purchasing decisions for them. I plan to take lessons from Jesse as long as I can! :)

Love working with Jonathan! He is a total professional! Always punctual, always prepared for each lesson. Furthermore, he begins teaching with the fundamentals of the guitar. He emphasizes understanding how to hold the guitar, how to use timing ect. He is both an excellent instructor for beginners through full on professional players. I highly recommend Jonathan any any group to have as an instructor..

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.

Jacob is an all around quality individual who clearly has a passion to invest in those he comes in contact with! He is an exceptional and gifted musician and instructor. The students really connect with him and are motivated by his enthusiasm. And on top of it all, the guy can really play that guitar!! Some have a gift to play, some an ability to teach. Jacob has both! One last thing... He's also a genuinely nice guy! I would highly recommend anyone looking for a patient, passionate and exceptional music teacher to learn guitar, bass, piano and even beginner drums to experience a lesson with Jacob for themselves.

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!

Coming from a very musical family, Joe started playing bass at the age of 9. While creating music for his own bands, Joe was quickly utilized as the go-to bassist for jazz band, chorus, string ensemble, and even musicals such as Les Miserable, Hello Dolly, etc. His interest in jazz brought him to Berklee College of Music, where he graduated with a degree in contemporary writing and production. Since then, Joe has toured the UK and Europe with international artist Christian Cuff and as a session musician and has shared the stage with artists such as B.B. King and James Otto. By playing styles from hip-hop to classical and anything in between, Joe now works as a producer/engineer in the world-class Rockinghorse Studios in Pittsfield, NH, while still finding the time to play numerous groups throughout New England. Joe's Teaching Philosophy: "My aim as a teacher is to help the student achieve his or her musical goals, which could be anything from strumming chords at a campfire to auditioning for a band. Either way, my intention is to inspire the student to practice and to inspire him/her to have fun. I strongly encourage students to be creative and develop their own style based on what they love about the music they listen to and ultimately want to play."
