Lincoln is very knowledgable in music theory. His style is relaxed and is willing to adjust to my needs as a learner. It's been lots of fun after just three lessons!

My son is enjoying his lessons every week with Justin. Justin is great, has a very good personality, always on time, polite, and keeps in contact. So far everything is going better than expected. My son seems to be moving right along because of Justin's help. Thanks you Justin!

About Stephen

I am a recent graduate from UMass Amherst. I got my Bachelor of Music degree in Jazz Performance. I have been playing the guitar for about 11 years now and have been formally trained in Jazz. I can also play Bluegrass, Rock, Acoustic, Country, Pop, Fusion, Funk, Jam and Singer/Songwriter. Any of these genres I'm able to teach and give insight about playing and performing. I've been gigging and giving lessons for a few years now and I will utilize my experiences to give the student the best musical education on the specific style or genre that wants to be learned.

About John

I have been teaching piano and guitar lessons for over 5 years now and it is honestly the most fulfilling and enjoyable part of my week. Sharing my passion for music and having the student find learning an instrument fun is my ultimate goal. I grew up with classical lessons and have performed on several different platforms throughout high school and college. Music is a way to feel and express emotion in an amazing way, I love passing along that feeling.
