Sean is a perfect fit for my 8 year old grandson. In just a few weeks, he has taught him the basics of how to hold the Guitar and how to play the chords. He has the patients necessary to teach a young child and knows how to talk to them so they understand. We are so happy with our choice of instructors.

I knew nothing about music except that I loved listening to it since I can remember, Upon my retirement from education and at the encouragement of my 7 year old grandson who was taking guitar lessons, I also began guitar lessons with Eric. In the few months that I have been his student, Eric has demonstrated his superior knowledge of music, outstanding ability to teach using a variety of methods as well as much patience. I highly recommend Eric as a teacher to anyone wanting to learn about music and how to play guitar.

Genesis is an amazing instructor. She has been working with my son who has special needs. She is incredibly patient and knowledgeable. She knows exactly how to approach him and work with him. She uses her experience and techniques to engage him in his lessons. He is really blossoming musically under her tutelage. I would highly recommend her to teach piano and voice to anyone, especially children!

Amazing. Genesis has taught me so much about music. She's taught me how to play piano and guitar, and voice. She has also helped me understand music on a whole different level. She's also taught me how to be confident. And if I am confused on something, she will go slowly, and go through the steps and help me understand it.

She is a Good and Patient teacher. My son is very happy with his lessons. The Lessons are not long and allows the student to take information home and practice. Her schedule is adjustable for a parent that works 3rd shift.

I've played the guitar for 40 years, but have only truly played now for the past 6 years; since the time that John McElderry has been my teacher. He has taken me through the Berkley College of Music in Boston curriculum. He'll lead you so far, then makes you work out the rest of the puzzle of your lesson, ensuring lasting retention of the material. Always fun, always learning something new. I've never been able to come up with a question that John couldn't answer and immediately demonstrate. I will take lessons with John until I can't play anymore. Very enjoyable learning experience. I'm now a competent guitar player, doing things naturally that I had only dreamed about earlier.

John has been a perfect teacher for me because of his profound understanding of music theory and composition. John has a degree in music from Berklee and those concepts are brought to life in our lessons. My musical understanding and ability has skyrocketed since our lessons began. Prior to us starting, jamming with other musicians was incredibly intimidating. Now I have standing weekly jam sessions with multiple groups and am able to old my own and improvise well at each. I have become the teacher for many of my friends who I previously thought were years ahead of me in musical talent. If you have the hunger to learn guitar, John is your guy.

John is extremely knowledgable about music theory. From my first lesson I walked away better off. And I think I will continue to grow in my guitar skills and music knowledge.

Really happy with my experience with Richards Guitar Studio. Nate was very accommodating, answering my questions and setting me up with right instructor. My instructor Eric is very easy to work with. Their Guitar Mastery program is a great way to learn and something that I don't think you can find anywhere else.

Mr. Diamond was knowledgeable in his music instruction. He was patient in his teaching & would always take as much time as you needed to master a skill or piece of music. His friendly, jovial personality makes you feel very relaxed & at ease.

I am nearing retirement and have never played an instrument. Art has been able to teach me some basic cords and in a few weeks I have been able to play a few songs. He has been a good match for starting guitar.

Teresa is a very talented musician and experienced piano/guitar teacher. She is kind and patient with all of her students and with everyone around her. Her lessons are affordable but also high quality—they cover music theory, technique, musicianship, repertoire, and even a bit of music history. I have had the pleasure of observing many of her music lessons and taking piano lessons myself. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to learn piano or guitar.

Mr. Vedder is one of the most patient guitar teachers you could ever ask for. He is very professional and will take the time to answer all of your questions, even when you don't know what to ask. I customizes the lessons for you and the music you want to learn. Each lesson takes place one on one with 100% individual attention to you. He makes getting started with the guitar very easy and rewarding. When you start taking lessons with Mr. Vedder one of the first things you notice is he is very passionate about music and honestly wants to pass his knowledge on to new people. To him it's not about making a buck, it's about making music.

Williamson is a great guitar teacher and fun to be around. He is passionate about what he does and wants the student to be successful. I took lessons with him for three months and had I not moved I would still be taking lessons. I was given tools and materials to keep practicing and to better my playing.

An experienced teacher that has made learning the guitar fun but challenging.. I would recommend Williamson to any person interested in learning from scratch or just wanting to improve their skills.

What a great fortune to find my perfect singing instructor through this site. Diane is a pleasure to work with. She made me feel. Try confortable and explained what goes into good singing technique and I can already see an improvement since my second lesson. She is very professional and very friendly. Very respectful and has a great way of explaining things. The price is very reasonable and she is very patient. I never took singing lessons before and have not studied music, but she was willing to teach me from nothing and I quickly learned enough to improve a lot in a little time. I can't wait to tale more lessons and get even better. I highly recommend her especially to other females that are looking for an instructor they can trust and feel safe going to her home studio and directions are easy along with a large parking lot which makes it all convenient safe and efficient. Thank you Diane!

My ten year old daughter absolutely loves working with Diane, with whom she has been working for about one year. Her voice has improved tremendously and she is also learning guitar. From a beginner just a few months ago she can now play some pretty cool songs! She always leaves every lesson with a smile. One thing that I really appreciate is that Diane is teaching my daughter the right way to sing so that she will not damage her voice. Whenever we knock on the door to start a lesson, Diane is there with a smile and some amazing energy, and I always know that my daughter will have a great experience with a wonderful role model.

I've been taking vocal lessons with Diane for 5 years now and I would never go to anyone else. I've been to many coaches but Diane is by far the best - not only is she an excellent instructor but a true musician as well. Her musical knowledge comes from both life and classroom experiences making her teaching technique genuine and personable.

My teenage son has been enjoying Danton's classical guitar teaching for the past two years. In this time, he has greatly matured in his playing skills and understanding of music theory. Danton challenges his students in creative and fun ways, making lessons a pleasure. He includes the student in selecting music, being sure to advance the student's skill level without overwhelm the student. He is professional, engaging, and friendly. Additionally, his ability to come to my home for lessons saves me time each week. Certainly, he is a very talented musician whom I eagerly recommend for all styles of piano or guitar instruction.

Heather H.

Danton is a wonderful teacher and mentor. He is an extremely talented musician, composer and teacher. He has the wonderful ability to connect with his students and has an amazing depth and breadth of knowledge in many genres of music, including classical, music theory and teaching methods to bring out the best in his students. He is a personable and professional young man with a charming, upbeat personality and has great flexibility in working with you in his studio or in your home. He has been my son's teacher and mentor in piano, music theory and composing for many years and has played a key role in his progression.

Verified review

As an older student who has been playing for thirty-plus years with very little professional instruction, I had concerns about not being able to find a guitar teacher who would be able to break me of my worn-in bad habits. It has been very easy communicating my interests and concerns with Kevin, and his wealth of knowledge of music is very apparent. His approach to teaching is very casual but still maintains direction. My instruction so far has included in-depth scale exercises across the fretboard, music theory & chord construction, popular and classic chord progressions in several genres, exercises in well-known guitar method texts, and just learning how to play a favorite old song. I am always looking forward to my weekly lesson, as does my ten-year-old daughter who has just begun her lessons with Kevin.

I've been playing guitar for over a decade, and I truly love all genres (rock, blues, funk, folk, R and B, jazz, neo soul, reggae, etc.). I've been teaching for about five years.
