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 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.

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

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.

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.

Jonas has been teaching our daughter, Allison, for about 7 years. I can't begin to say enough about Jonas as a teacher, mentor and person. He has given Allison such confidence in herself and her music . . . Jonas always goes above and beyond - encouraging Allie to perform and write music, working 1 on 1 with her to record her music and getting her used to mics and sound systems. He has been a huge influence on Allison over the years . . .she truly looks to Jonas as one of the people she admires most in her life. We can't recommend Jonas' Guitar Lessons enough!

As someone who began teaching guitar professionally almost 3 decades ago I can tell you that Taunton Guitar Lessons is THE place to go for the training, mastery and mentoring you need to become the guitar player you want to be. I've seen Josh Beetler in action and he is among the best I've ever seen. You need look no further than what Josh not only can, but WILL do for you.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Jacob is your guy. What you look for in a teacher is someone who ENJOYS teaching you, is patient, and allows you to enjoy what you're doing. You can tell Jacob cares about what he does and he cares about teaching someone the guitar. In a short period, I've learned a ton from him and he's even gone out of his way to send videos of stuff I've needed to practice. If you're looking for an instructor, Jacob is the man for the job!

First and foremost, Georgios is an amazing guitar instructor (but read on, there is more to it). He helped me get to a great state in just two months, to a state that I couldn’t get in 15 years on my own. I have been playing WITH the guitar for around 15 years. And now I am starting to play THE guitar… Over the past decade I never got to where I wanted to, just causally played a fragment of a song, forgot the guitar for next 6 months and tried to get back to it… until the time I was able to discover a section of another song by ear. Then I would have something more important to do. The problem was that I never had a clear enough to walk. Georgios listened to me a lot. I told what can and cannot do and what I would like to do –and actualy these were what he wanted to find out before we started the classes. He planned a series of classes and “homework” to make a guitar player out of me (as much as I can be). We work once a week together, and I practice every day (even it is 10 mins –that is what he suggested –and it is a head-on advice). We work on everything, technique, getting clean sound, being on tempo, letter names, scales. But bit by bit and with just enough pressure. Never overwhelming, always enjoyable! I think I will keep working with him as much as I can (cannot foresee where/when we can run out of fuel). Last but not the least, Georgios is not only a guitar instructor, but he is a musician with two impressive degrees. And those degrees take nothing from his humbleness and friendliness. If you want a savvy and serious yet extremely friendly instructor, look no further.

After taking piano lessons from a traditional piano teacher for 6 years, I needed a change. Steve was the perfect choice. He played at a local piano bar at the time, and I wanted to hone my skills so I could play in bands, too. I assumed he would teach me the ins and outs of chords and then send me off to conquer the music scene, but it turned out he had a real mastery of musical theory, and he held it to a very high importance. He began each of our lessons with music theory - all the basics that make a solid foundation for any musician. Then, he introduced a new concept to something I had been doing all along. He gave me sheet music to learn - tough teaching songs - then after a time, began blocking my view of my hands with paper while playing. Eventually, he'd block my hands and take away the music, teaching me a very important part of playing anything in front of people. You have to know the music inside and out. You can't rely on the sheets in front of you. That's the only way you can truly immerse yourself in the song and let your fingers do the playing. His fees were reasonable and the time was very well-spent. You have to do the work between lessons to get the most out of them. Steve has a true mastery of live performance on every level, and it would behoove any musician, young or old, beginner or skilled, to spend a year in his teaching. We can all benefit from it. I certainly did. I've been in various bands, ever since, and I haven't looked back except to remember who helped me get here.

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!

Sara is an amazing teacher. She is very patient with her students, passionate about music and teaching music. She tries to find what best suites you to learn. You see progress clearly because Sara's lessons are structured. I took guitar and vocal lessons with her, she tailored the exercises to what I wanted and helped me reach my goals. She adjusted herself to my pace which was exactly what I needed, a patient expert teacher who is talented and good at communicating their knowledge. I recommend her 100%!

    Andres is the greatest guitar teacher EVER!! I started lessons with him knowing nothing about how to play the guitar and I'm absolutely amazed at how much I've improved! Also, I've been able to learn so many different styles of playing because somehow he has experience in pretty much everything. I'm not the fastest learner, but Andres didn't seem phased at all which made me feel so much more at ease. I can't wait to show off my skills this summer!!!!

    As a guitar instructor, my teaching methods are personal and thorough; it addresses the needs and desires of the student first. If you are a beginner and you want to learn how to play pop songs or if you're an experienced player who is looking to expand his or her own musical talents, I will be able to bring out the best in you. My rate is very reasonable and competitive with other instructors in the area.
