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 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!

Wanted to take piano lessons, so I called the owner, Kris, and he made me feel very confident and comfortable in going with his studio. Charlie, my piano teacher, is very good. He's attentive, patient, and most importantly challenges me. Great experience so far. Highly recommended.

Felix is a great guitar instructor! He has the knowledge, skills, and sensitivity to teach students of all ages and levels. Personable and enthusiastic, Felix communicates concepts and techniques very well. He is an amazing and inspiring guitarist who teaches the fundamentals while, at the same time, encourages exploration and personal expression. I have been taking private lessons from Felix for a number of years and I know first-hand of his ability and willingness to provide exceptional instruction in a wide range of musical styles and genres tailored to the individual student’s interest. In my case, due to having an eclectic musical taste, Felix tutors me in various categories which include: folk, blues, jazz, country, bluegrass, reggae, both classic and contemporary rock, and even some classical. I learn from him using both acoustic and electric guitar. Very soon after first taking lessons from Felix he began teaching me soloing techniques right alongside strumming rhythms. Felix, a Berklee School of Music alum, is an incredibly talented and passionate guitarist held in high regard among his peers. He is a natural teacher capable of effectively instructing the beginner, intermediate, and advanced level student in equal measure. With his vast knowledge Felix offers informed instruction on reading and transcribing music, theory, and composition for those students who wish to delve that deep in their study. Felix is patient, thorough, and encouraging in his teaching approach. As a long-term pupil of Felix’ I give him my highest recommendation.

Mr. Fred Delgizzo worked around my schedule for my first 30 minute guitar lesson. He was very willing to meet me where I'm at; a beginner when it comes to music and a complete stranger to the guitar. He is very friendly and patient with me. The only negative is that my fingers hurt, but I don't believe even the best of teachers can do anything about that. #waitingforcalouses

Hi, my name is Frank Murphy, and I'm 42. I've been playing guitar for 30 years. Playing guitar is my favorite thing to do and teaching it is just one of its many rewards. Because of the guitar, I've been in bands that have toured. I've recorded several times for myself as well as doing sessions for blues, jazz, rock, metal, country, and shred. I've performed for thousands, and I've met some of the most interesting people. I teach in a manner which will lead you to finding your own voice on the guitar as an individual. I am well versed in music theory. Lessons are $60 for 30 minutes.

I am a guitarist based in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, where I began taking lessons at the age of 13. Since then, I have been working as a substitute guitar teacher in studios as well as private lessons. I have also worked in NY's public elementary school system, and am currently working as a music teacher in a Pre K-8 school in Pawtucket. I teach private lessons for acoustic guitar and ukulele.

I have been playing guitar for over 30 years. I've taught off and on for the last 10 years. The method I use will be to pick songs that the student wants to learn, but throwing in some scales and modes as "homework" each lesson. You do your homework, and you will learn or be taught a segment of whichever piece you want to learn. If I feel it is beyond your abilities, I will tell you so, but I'll still teach you the song in small increments, eventually putting the song together . If a song is beyond my abilities, I will also tell you, as I am not Yngwie Malmsteen, however I will do my best to teach you whatever I can. My students must be committed to learning, prompt and dedicated to their lessons(for Jr High School and High School levels, a certain academic requirement is in place, my heart goes to those who believe in being a guitarist for a living as a sure thing, its not impossible, but highly improbable. I require a passing grade in all subjects from 7th grade to 12t, that will be in the contract you or your legal guardian will sign. In this day and age, living a real life, with real bills, and real responsibilities, making your living as a guitarist is possible, but not practical, and I won't have any of my guitar students ignoring their school studies to only playing guitar, and not paying any focus on the long term. Guitar playing is rewarding, its fun, it brings people together, builds hand eye coordination, its fun, chicks dig a guy who plays guitar, and vice versa, dudes love a gal that can play guitar, it builds self confidence, requires focus and determination, but nobody draws more attention or admiration than a guy or gal that can grab a guitar, and belt out a tune or two.
