Great teacher

I had been teaching myself how to play guitar for a few years and felt like I was not making any progress, so I decided to take some lessons. I feel very fortunate that I was able to find Chuck and work with him.

Chuck is a very talented musician and teacher. He communicates and explains musical concepts in a way that's easy to understand. Lessons were challenging, but in a good way, and Chuck is always friendly and supportive. He gave me great recommendations for what to work on in practice and always had listening suggestions that reinforced what we were working on.

I wish that I had started taking lessons with him sooner, because I learned and improved more as a musician and guitarist in 2 months of lessons with Chuck than in the 2-3 years I had been teaching myself how to play. I can't recommend him enough, especially for beginners or someone who needs a little help to take the next step in their musical journey.

Thank you Anne. I get the most from you that one should play piano with the body in a natural state. "Nature commended should be obeyed."

I think it is incredible that you keep learning new things!

Wish you all the best in the future.

Returning to fundamentals as an adult learner is very difficult and challenging but, at least in my case, very necessary. Annie has been a wonderful piano and voice teacher guiding me through this process - patient and kind, tolerant of my poor practice habits, and able to help me work on all aspects of my music. I would highly recommend her to any prospective student, and hope to continue working with her well into the future.

Go for it!

Being very experienced with teaching to both children and adults of all backgrounds and ambitions, Anne is a very skilled and smart teacher. Her pedagogy has obviously been refined over many years and is clever and efficient yet easy-going and painless. She mixes theory and more academic learning with ear-training, relying as well on your more natural instincts, in order to equip you with the varied skills of a complete musician. She really tailors the teaching to your specific goals and level, as well. All this in a very gentle, easy and genuinely caring way. And always with a smile. Just go for it!
Erin Q. Brighton, MA

About Erin

I'm a Berklee educated musician with ten year experience teaching ages two and up in the Boston area. Over the years, I've taught private and group lessons, have been the music director for various musicals, choirs and handbell groups, and have also spent time as a tutor and preschool teacher!

My teaching philosophy is a simple one: I believe everyone has music in them. Growing up, I had a lot of teachers who were strict, stubborn, and unhelpful. It's easy to crush a person's spirit when they open up to you musically, and it's been my goal to only foster and encourage people who are ready to start their musical journey. I form the lesson around YOU: what songs you want to learn, what goals you have for your music, and what aspects you want to learn.

Wonderful experience. I do semi-professional work as a cover band singer and lessons with Erin had an immediate positive impact on my performance and practice. Highly recommend.

Erin is light-hearted, fun, and professional all at the same time. She's a great teacher.

Erin has been my singing teacher for five one-hour lessons now. Because I was a beginner, we started with what is probably fairly basic stuff: voice warm-ups, learning my falsetto voice, proper breathing / breath control, proper pronunciation for certain words, and leaning to properly use my mouth. That being said, Erin somehow managed to both keep everything light-hearted and fun, while at the same time, actually getting me to learn what I’m doing and make real progress each lesson. We were also able to use a mix of things that she provided for me to sing, and songs that I brought to learn to sing. So I wasn’t just stuck learning things I didn’t really care to get good at singing. From Day 1 not only was I learning the technicalities of singing better, I was also just simply learning to sing a song that I already knew and loved (and just needed some help to sing better).

We’ve already gone over a couple of songs that I brought in and a couple that she thought I would be good at singing. She’ll give you tips on what to work on between lessons, and answer any questions you have.

Overall, this has been a great experience. And Erin really is a great teacher.

About Christopher

Welcome! My name is Christopher S. and I am a classical guitarist, song writer, and experienced music teacher. I began learning music when I was nine on the piano however by the time I turned twelve I discovered my passion for the guitar. I began by learning songs and playing in band with some of my school friends. This was the start of my journey into music. I started with blues, rock, and pop music but I quickly moved into more complex genres such as funk and Jazz music.

In college I began my studies of the historically endless and huge world of classical music. This is also when I began teaching and taking students of guitar. I studied classical music at Hofstra University and completed my degree at Humboldt State University in Northern California. After earning my degree I began ...
