Don was very kind, patient, and encouraging. He brought over a lot of his own materials so it was much less stressful trying to find things to do.

Don does an outstanding job! He is able to connect authentically my son and customized the lessons to fit his learning style and needs. Don has drawn so much out of him musically and has also built a community of students that play together. He makes the lessons fun and engaging. He has opened up my 7-year old to the joy of playing and performing and has helped create a love of music. I highly recommend Don as a music teacher.

About Tyler
I am a very passionate music teacher, it's really who I am. I thrive off of opening the doors of music to people and teaching them a foundation upon which to grow.

I play and manage a band called Skyfoot and have for about 3 years now. I have played in 35 different states, playing with all kinds of musicians across the United States.

Been meeting with Tyler for 4 lessons now and cannot give anything but the highest praise for him. Before we began we set the outline for what
I wanted to do and how he could help - the planning was good but the execution far exceeded anything I could hope for. His insight, technical ability, and highly positive attitude makes him the perfect partner to "re-introduce" me to the guitar (35+ year break in playing). Cons: initially opted for 1/2 hour lesson - too short. Pros: understands my goals, appreciates the musical genre that is important to me, great balance between teaching during the lesson and giving me things to work on on my own, very positive and encouraging attitude....and many more "pros". My suggestion is - if you are thinking of going with him give him a call - very easy to talk to and you will likely find out what I have found - Tyler is top notch!!

I've been taking lessons in acoustic guitar with music theory with Emiliano since the beginning of the year, and they're a highlight of my week. Emi is super accommodating and knowledgeable, and goes above and beyond to explain the connections between everything you're learning and keep track of your understanding.

Fantastic instructor with a breadth of knowledge but also the patience to explain everything. He is always willing to deconstruct concepts in order to make them easier to understand. Helped me understand fundamental chords and scales in theory and in practice. Also, he showed me how to play some songs i requested and showed me how to improve on the parts i had trouble with. Very nice guy and a real professional!

I teach in a variety of styles, including blues, country, funk, Jazz, and rock. I can teach acoustic, electric, slide and finger style. I also am knowledgeable in music theory and reading music. I will base my lessons on how/what my current students want to learn.

About Jarred
I am a semi-professional guitar player and songwriter. I have played in the local Dover - Seacoast area with different groups over the years which is given me a greater understanding about my craft.

Students can expect to improve incrementally after each week as we explore different techniques and styles that the student is interested in. I will teach you proper building blocks for good technique in order to get the best sound and achieve the best playing experience possible.
I can teach students of all ages and skill levels. I can teach you to read and learn things by the book, or I can teach you to learn by ear. I base my lessons around the goals of the student.

I have a passion for playing music and sharing my joy with people through that. I can't wait to meet you and help you start your musical journey!

Before I met Corey, I was a recovering drummer, transitioned to Bass. All self taught. Little did i know, I was a ROOT NOTE player just getting by. After Just over a year being taught by Corey, my skills have advanced so drastically. It's a great experiance being taught by the BEST. I now have bands calling me to sub or wanting me to join. If you're looking to advance your chops, or maybe you're a beginner, Corey is THE ONE for you.
Thank You Corey, I appreciate all you do.

I am absolutely amazed how laughter, insight and fun amplifies the learning experience. Corey helped me start, begin and continue on this journey to become the musician that I want to be. Corey listens to his students and in turn teaches us to really listen.
Corey has a wealth of knowledge and experience in making and teaching the art of music. He is always encouraging his students to become more than they perceive themselves to be.
16+ years ago I went 'live' for the first time with Corey's encouragement.
I was absolutely petrified.
I was convinced that it was possible to urinate down both pant legs simultaneously. Clearly I was mistaken.
That first introduction to musical performance by Corey has lead to so much in my life.
Under Corey's instruction I have played many styles of music. This has always been done in an encouraging, empowering, engaging and fun environment.
Please look at the first sentence of this review.
His teaching methods lead to positive results.
Become the musician that you wish to be.

Do you want to unlock the mysteries of the guitar fretboard? Learn to play songs, improvise for the first time or explore new ideas for improvisation, study rhythmic grooves and learn to keep and feel the beat. Guitar can be a vehicle for your souls' deepest expression and also a form of practicing meditation. I began teaching before I attended Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. After Berklee, I performed in several bands, toured Europe and worked as a sound engineer for both live and studio settings including several festivals in Costa Rica.. I can help guide you with creating your own sound recordings if desired. Whether you are just getting started or an experienced guitarist looking for some unique perspective I'd love to help you find a new groove! My favorite styles to play are rock, reggae, R&B and the blues but I also play funk, jazz and classical guitar. Drop me a line today!

About Jennifer
I began playing guitar at 12 years old. Before that I had dappled with the piano and always sang. There was something about the guitar that just drew me in! I always loved seeing the hands of guitar players and the sounds that would accompany those shapes.

Guitar is a very pattern based instrument. Once you learn the patterns and intentionally "program" those patterns into your playing, you eventually don't have to think about the theory or the pattern you can just play guitar effortlessly! But first it takes practice. Not just any kind of practice, perfect practice that is consistent. If you play a different fingering each time you play the same scale it can make learning the pattern harder. it's like you are always doing something different to get the same result! This slows the guitar learning process. I will give you effective le
arning practices to begin to accelerate your guitar playing skills! Everyone wants to express themselves with ease and practicing the patterns of guitar "language" is the key!

I began teaching at my hometown of Lake Ronkonkoma Long Island NY back in 2004. Since then, I have also studied at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. My dual major of Professional Music ( self directed major where I studied guitar, bass, piano, drum set, percussion, song writing and music business) and Music Production and Engineering.

I have played in professionally in several bands including my band Stealing Earth and the Ludmila Stefanikova Quintet touring Europe on electric guitar.

My Music Engineering degree has brought me to work in the studio and live venue settings. I am the former house sound engineer of the famous listening venue Lizard Lounge Cambridge, MA, working closely with resident artists, Club d'Elf, Dennis Brennan Band and MC Kabir. I've also had the pleasure of engineering in several studios including the studio of Susan Rogers who was Prince's sound engineer and one of my teachers. I have also engineered the band Kung Fu at Jungle Jam, Best Fest and Mike Love at Envision Festival in Costa Rica.

I specialize in Roots, Rock, Reggae, Afro-Cuban and R&B. I also can play funk, classical, jazz and slide guitar.

Whether you are just starting out, want to try a new style, want recording or song writing tips or just want to learn to have a zen guitar practice, I am looking forward to sharing my knowledge and experience!
