Curtis has been a great instructor for me. Curtis listens ,encourages and teaches in away that I am making progress each week on skills like strumming ,timing, and rhythm . The bottom line is that I truly look forward to my lesson every week with Curtis and I think you will too.

Curtis is a fantastic teacher! He is patient, enthusiastic, and encouraging. He teaches the type of songs you want to learn and not some song from a guitar guidebook. My first lesson was two hours and it quickly went by. I learned a lot, had a lot of fun and am looking forward to my next lesson. If you are in search of a guitar instructor, I would highly recommend him.

Private Guitar Teacher

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 instrum

We will go over proper playing technique, start building a knowledge of essential chords and progressions, learn scales, cover the fundamentals of music theory, and begin learning some standard repertoire.

I have spent a majority of my life playing the guitar on and off the stage, in the recording studio, and everywhere else in between. I attended Berklee College of Music and studied performance and music business. I have been lucky enough to work along side Grammy winning producers, and have performed at major music festivals such as SXSW, Bonnaroo, and Boston Calling. I teach all styles of guitar and specialize in blues and rock styles. Whatever techniques you want to learn I can teach them.

About Matt

Jacob
When I started to play guitar, I did not know very much about the guitar or how to read music. Matt taught me pretty much everything since the beginning and I enjoyed it a lot. He went over the basics with the acoustic, then we went onto the electric. He understands this instrument very well with different techniques. He is also very patient, kind, and willing to help anybody. He's really the best out there.
Jake
I've taken guitar lessons from three different teachers and what I learned in the two years Matt has taught me definitely has improved my playing, songwriting, and musical interest like nothing else. This guy understands good songwriting and performance as well as just shredding. He's a nice guy and loves to talk music too, and he'll really work with you at any skill level and at any pace you are comfortable with.
Ben
When I moved to Boston one of the first shows I went to was a band called Grey Season. I was blown away by Matt's Guitar playing. When I found out he gave lessons I immediately got in contact with him. Now, 3 years later, I can say that I've learned so much from lessons with Matt. He is not only an accomplished guitar player but an inspiring teacher who has been dedicated in helping me become a better blues guitarist and all around musician.

I can definitely teach any serious student how to play well. I can get you ready to play in a band and perform live. Classic Rock, Blues and Jazz are my specialties. I've been teaching and performing these styles nationally for over 30 years. If you really want to learn how to play well, I'm your teacher. We'll definitely have fun and the more you practice, the more fun you'll have. And if you just want to learn a few chords and a few tunes to strum, we can do that too. You pick, guitar hero or just a fun hobby. Anyone can learn to play and have fun with the way I teach.

About Tom

Tom is an excellent music teacher. He has been teaching our granddaughter classical guitar and we have been very pleased. I taught instrumental and vocal music in the public schools. I also taught strings at the Arts School .
He is well educated in the music field and has had so much performing experience so he has a very well rounded background, I think you would be very pleased
to study with Tom.

I have had a terrific experience working with Tom. Playing guitar for nearly 20 years, I was looking for advanced instruction and coaching. Focusing specifically on Jazz, Tom has helped me elevate my playing ability and understanding of the art form. Tom is a professional musician that has an ability to connect with his students of all ages and levels. I highly recommend working with Tom.
