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.

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.

I'm so glad we found this school. David comes to our house once a week and teaches my boys (9 & 13) and they are learning so much, so fast! They are playing by ear and reading music. David is so professional and works with each of them at their levels. There are always "duet" moments where he plays along with the kids. I honestly couldn't be happier.

It's been awesome so far. My teacher was really thoughtful of what I wanted to learn and really tried to not waste any time. I'm also thankful that the school matched me with a teacher that really fit my interest. So far so good!

My 10 year old daughter has been taking lessons from Stevie for about a year now. We are thrilled with her progress. Stevie is not only an excellent and patient teacher but he is a gentleman who goes the extra mile to ensure that he provides a comfortable learning environment for his students. He genuinely wants his students to enjoy making music as much as he does. It's been a real pleasure watching my daughter develop her guitar skills over the past year with Stevie.

I`ve been taking guitar lessons from Steve for seven weeks now and I find him to be a GREAT teacher and very knowledgeable on everything when it comes to anything related to music. If you want to know anything about a particular instrument or Amp or anything related to music Steve can guide you. I`m an older student and mentally handicapped sometimes ;) and he`s very patient with me. I give him 5 stars and would recommend to him to anyone.

Buck is a talented and patient guitar instructor. He has provided weekly lessons at a reasonable rate to me for 4 years. My daughter wanted to learn to play so we both now take lessons from him. He is accommodating with changing scheduling and now comes to our location for lessons. He is well versed in many styles, and knows his music and instruments well. He even helps determine guitar parts for my daughter from animation and other non-traditional sources, then teaches her to play them. Highly recommend you take lessons from Buck. Plus he'a a really nice guy too!

Buck has been giving lessons to my sons for years and we are very happy with him as a teacher. He is extremely knowledgeable in both bass and guitar. His knowledge of musical theory as well as a broad spectrum of types of music is also very impressive. He's always able to find something that my sons are interested in learning, and he is very patient with both young students as well as new students. I would highly recommend him to anyone with no reservations whatsoever.

I was been interested in learning to play the bass for a number of years and figured I could benefit from some personal instruction. I found Lou to be professional, relaxed, and easy-going in the lessons he provided. The lessons had a good mix of basics in how to play the instrument as well as incorporating music theory seamlessly while learning.

Lou will teach you all the basic building blocks of music theory, then help you build your technique from there, no matter what type of music you are looking to play.

Scott is a great teacher! He really knows how to get you playing and using the techniques he's teaching you... not just reading notes off a sheet but understanding what you're doing so you can play with others comfortably...

What a wonderful experience! I was unsure about who to go to when I decided I wanted to get back into music. I made the best decision when I choose Brenda as a teacher. She is knowledgable, articulate and has a friendly and positive teaching style. She helped me push through when I was met with challenges and I can confidently say my abilities grew as I worked with her. If you are thinking about taking guitar lessons, definitely do it with Brenda! You won't be sorry!

I’m a singer and wanted someone to help me learn how to accompany myself. I can play a bit of piano and he helped me take some of that knowledge and put it on the guitar. He’s very patient and although I moved out of the area, I decided to stick with him by doing Skype lessons. I was amazed at what we were able to accomplish through Skype! He is obviously extremely skilled in his craft and I looked forward to our lesson every week. Jason has been wonderful about working with my strengths as a musician and I have actually started performing with the guitar in public. Excellent teacher!

Christopher S.

A great teacher and fantastic guitarist. He is able to take where I want to go as a player, formulate a plan, set appropriate mileposts, while explaining the theory in terms that are easily understood and relatable to my approach to the instrument, and correct my course. My playing has improved far beyond what I thought possible. A great motivator and lover of guitar and music, which is contagious. I can't recommend him highly enough.

Great teacher. I've only been going for a couple of weeks; "but so far, so good." Jason knows guitar and is patient and professional. He understands that I'm a 68 year old Jazz guitar player "wanna-be." I enjoy working and learning from him

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.
