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've been taking guitar lessons from Nick Cooper for 7 months. Besides having a great time, I've learned a tremendous amount from Nick and improved my playing greatly. Whenever I'm having an issue, he's has been able to give me the right exercises and instruction to iron my problems out and keep me progressing. His lessons always keep in mind my personal preferences and objectives. I'm particularly excited about his plans for group workshops to involve all of his interested students. Being an older adult with a full-time job, I've been especially appreciative of his efforts to work within my schedule and time constraints. All in all, I look to be studying with Nick for a long time. Cliff Cahall
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 husband is really enjoying his guitar lessons with Bradley!
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.
Does a great job, both teaching and encouraging me. As an adult learner picking up the guitar for the umteenth time..... Russell keeps it interesting and fun.
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!
Grey has been giving guitar lessons since he was in high school. He taught my 30 year old boyfriend how to play well when he was only seventeen. He went on to teach my twelve year old daughter the basics, in the summer before he left for college. He is patient and proficient as a player and as an instructor. He has grown significantly in the years since, and is a highly sought professional.
Evan is a great music teacher! My son was taking private guitar lessons from him.I really loved his professional approach,friendliness and great passion for music.I would highly recommend his services!
I have taken guitar lessons from Alan Donati for a number of years in order to better understand music. Being a weathered rock/blues drummer myself, I can attest that Alan is a very accomplished musician and seasoned music teacher who learned his craft via years of playing in rock, blues and jazz bands as well as attending Berklee as a solid foundation. Alan can teach a number of instruments well such as guitar, bass and piano alongside incorporating music theory with the practical applications. He is very adapt with technology as well as “old school”. I have seen Alan teach many students with great patience with tailored attention to the particular student’s interest. Some veteran musicians can only play well but not teach. However, Alan can obviously do both. And so I am giving Alan an outstanding review and rating.
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!
I have three guitar lessons with Evan and he has already given me so much great stuff to work on! I had been teaching myself for about six months, but Evan has done so much more for me and shown me so many ways to improve. I am really looking forward to continuing learning from him.
Fiona taught my daughter guitar and voice. She tailored lessons according her skills and interests. She is very experienced, patient and a great teacher. highly recommend Fiona for guitar or voice lessons!
I was very happy with our first lesson. I look forwar to learning how to play my guitar from Gary.
My son and I have been taking lessons with Lynn for 5 or 6 years now. She is very patient with younger students (& older students having "senior moments"). She is also flexible in her lessons in that if we want to work on theory, jazz, rock, blues, she will cater to our requests.
I was a complete beginner at 50! John has been excellent at introducing me to guitar so I can play songs right away. After a couple of months, I searched online for what makes a good guitar teacher and John does them all.
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
Inigo is a great guitar instructor. He is very knowledgeable in multiple guitar styles and great at explaining music theory. He is easy going and encouraging. It is great making music with him!

I teach the foundations of bass guitar through advanced levels. Lessons are designed to fit each student's interests and goals while covering essential topics to help them become accomplished musicians. The most important thing is the enjoyment of the instrument and music (that's why we play!) and that will be fostered through each lesson.

I offer private guitar instruction with 13 years of experience. As seen in Improper Bostonian, Jazz Times, Boston Globe, Arizona Republic, and Backbay Courant, this service has been established since 1998 and have been at the same Back Bay location since 2004. Gift certificates are available! My name is Buddy Jones. I'm from Phoenix, AZ. I teach beneficial, practical, and fun musical application of knowledge and skills on the guitar. It is my primary goal with each student to get him/her off on the right foot and have him/her stay on the right track. I have been a professional guitarist for 17 years and a fourth generation musician-educator for over a decade. My degree is in guitar performance from Berklee College of Music. Each person learns differently. The following three things are known as modalities: * Auditory -- by ear or tonal instruction * Kinesthetic -- by feel; learns from physically being shown and a hands-on learner * Visual -- by sight; by fret board position memory and shape You will have access to learn the following: * Jazz * Blues * Rock * Flamenco * Folk * Classical * Seven-String Guitar * Tuning * Charts/Notation * Songwriting * Rhythm * Material Foundation * Accents/Dynamics * Soloing * Self-Assessment Goals * Walking Bass Lines * Phrasing * Daily Dexterity Exercises * Different Approaches * Relative Pitch * Harmony * Physical Techniques * Harmonics * Tapping Techniques * Chord and Scale Structures * Theory! I love to teach and see students grow on the instrument. I find each student's learning style and teach within it. Proudly, I have started students and helped them build a foundation in music that has led many students with scholarships (Berklee, USC, ASU, NYU, UofA, and NAU) for music. You can reach me if you're driving, I'm located in major cross streets -- Marlborough St. and Gloucester St. If you are taking the public transit, I'm three blocks from the Hynes Convention Center and T Stop on the Green Line. There is ample metered parking in front of the brownstone. Reserve your slot; it's first-come first-served, and space is limited.
