Don p.

Lebanon, CT

About Don

We provide a complete learning experience beyond your traditional guitar lesson format! We begin by teaching you the skills needed to play and perform your music confidently. The main curriculum is our own Electric Crown Guitar Method which is the result of many years of testing what works best for students in a one on one learning situation. In addition we do supplement our studies with additional learning material.

Learning skills is useless if you don't actually apply them in a real musical way. Playing cool songs that Rock is a large part of our program!!! We use a large variety of pop
ular rock songs ranging from Led Zeppelin to The Beatles to Metallica and so on. We use real band backing tracks which you will be able to take home to practice along with. We will then record YOU playing the guitar parts with the band!

So how our program works is you'll first start out as private one on one lessons for about 5 weeks and then you'll join our "Guitar Team". How the "Guitar Team" works is we'll match you up with another student of a similar level and together you will work on your skills along with learning songs.

The benefit of learning this way is you learn how to play with other musicians and even more important is you'll both push each other resulting in more progress in a shorter amount of time. Aside from this it's just alot more fun!

Fully private lesson are also available for full hour students.

We strive to give you much more then guitar lessons. We offer you a complete guitar experience! Come join the experience!

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Classic Rock, Modern Rock,Metal and Acoustic rock styles. I also specialize in Music Theory and songwriting for the guitar.

Learning to play guitar can be a daunting task. Don breaks it down into easy to understand lessons. After each lesson he sends me home with practice homework so I constantly feel like I'm making progress.

The most important thing for me when i wanted to take lesson was that the teacher new his stuff, Don definitely does. I'm not just learning to play guitar, i'm also learning more about music.

When looking for a guitar teacher for my daughter, I was so pleased to find Don. He knew exactly where to begin with her and started her playing music right away. His creative techniques keep her engaged and excitedly looking for what's coming next. He is professional, yet warm at the same time, putting both her and I at ease. It is amazing to see the transformation in my daughter's guitar abilities as well as the transformation in her confidence. Don's expertise and patience is perfectly blended.
Thanks Don!

About Brian

Bio -

Guitarist Brian H. studied at The Hartford Conservatory and the Hartt School of Music, graduating at the top of his class with honors from The Hartford Conservatory. Brian has been a guitar and bass instructor at Choate Rosemary Hall since 1999. Brian also teaches at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, The Music Shop in Southington, and is the owner of Guitar Star Studio, located in Glastonbury, CT. In the past, he taught at The Hartford Conservatory and Riccardo's Music in East Hartford.

hn Jeski band for 13 years, he was a voting member of the Grammy Awards. Brian has 25 years experience playing in rock/pop bands, and currently performs with country artist Frankie Justin Lamprey.

Brian has provided liturgical music for many years in CT; also, in Sicily and Rome. Mr. H is a patient, enthusiastic teacher who enjoys helping his students master the art of guitar.

*** Lesson Details ***
In the first half of the lesson, students can expect to learn music fundamentals from a guitar method book, i.e. how to read music; I also teach guitar tablature. Depending on ability (beginner, intermediate, advanced), I will show them chords, scales and how to play a guitar solo. The second half of the lesson is spent with the student learning their favorite songs and building a repertoire (song list) for possbile future performances.

*** Studio Equipment ***
home: Seating for parents. I provide the amp, instrument cable and music stand. I expect the student to have a guitar and notebook. If the student does not have a guitar, I will give a referral for reasonably priced guitars.

I have been taking guitar lessons from Brian for a little over a year. His style is both patient and encouraging. I admire his ability to "hear the music"....every note ! I am an adult who has wanted to learn guitar for many years and thrilled to have found Brian. He truly displays a desire to teach at a pace that is comfortable. I would recommend him to folks of all ages.

Steve K.

Ellington, CT

About Steve

I am a Musical Director who has scored original music for many motion pictures and television and was musical arranger for the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. I've scored and arranged original music for several television shows including, Desperate Housewives, MTV's Making the Band, It's Showtime at the Apollo and numerous series on PBS, A & E and Disney, . I have also served as on-set vocal and piano coach for many Disney TV series.

As a piano instructor, I believe in giving every student a foundation in classical music.. I enjoy teaching and playing Jazz and pop as well.

I've worked with
students ages 5-90. I simply love the teaching process and respect every student's journey. Mixing structure and discipline with a positive teaching style, I work to inspire students to be their best within a well structured curriculum that is fun and engaging.

Music must be fun...always!

*** Lesson Details ***
My students see progress. I don't believe in cookie-cutter instruction. I take the time to learn a students individual comprehension of the musical language and their learning style. I also build a practice schedule that is realistic and creates growth. Music instruction should not feel like a burden, but should be joyful. It's a process I have respected. Whether you are 90 or 9, you can learn music, love music and feel its presence by playing an instrument or singing. My job is to communicate that joy and show you how you can do it for yourself.

Learning to master a musical instrument is a two way commitment and I will always give you my full effort as I love the results.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a digital upright piano for piano and vocal instruction.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide the lesson material and help students with purchasing the right method books.

*** Specialties ***
For beginning Piano-Intermediate, I have embraced the James Bastien series, as I believe it paces the young student and builds a foundation on a musical and pedagogical level.
Vocally, I follow a classical technique, but use that foundation as a basis to meet the goals of the singer for the style they want to achieve.

William P.

Waterbury, CT

About William

Hello everyone. I have a bachelor's degree in Vocal Performance from Valley Forge Christian College and I have been performing since I was three years old. I play several instruments and have learned the key skills needed to be a successful musician in any genre. With five years teaching experience and a willingness to learn, I have discovered new ways to help my students become better musicians. I can show you the ways to hone your skills through different drills and practice strategies. Also, I can teach you ways to keep your instrument working at top shape by keeping your physical health in
good condition. I want to teach you what you want to know with a little push to expand your abilities. I can also give you great tips ln running, and help you with your biblical studies. I hope to hear from you soon.

William has been a wonderful instructor for our 8 years old. He has been patient and has found ways to both explain music and also make it interesting. Will has even modified complex music to an easy to play version so our son could play a song he loved. His musical growth over the last 7 months has been remarkable and its in large part due to Will's low key, thoughtful, patient approach.

I've enjoyed my bass guitar lessons with Bob, and look forward to learning even more from him. I had some music background from my teens, and Bob adapted his lessons to fit my experience. His studio is a great environment and the location is perfect for me.

Bob is a great teacher. He is kind, patient, and talented. He caters each lesson to the things that I most want to learn. As an adult learner, I didn't want to be stuck playing "Mary Had a Little Lamb" for 6 months. So Bob started me out with fun songs from the 60s plus newer stuff from bands like the White Stripes. Plus, he is not only teaching me the bass, he is teaching me music theory as well. He is always on time, and is very focused during the lesson so that I get the most out of every minute that I'm there.
