I have known Jake for several years and have worked with him as a singer on many occasions.

Tigran is a skillful, kind, patient and honest teacher. I’m a beginning adult learner and have been progressing very quickly with his help. Tigran’s teaching is structured and organized while keeping the lessons challenging and interesting enough to want to keep going. I value his time and knowledge.

From rock to classical music we will explore guitar playing in a fun and constructive way! From day one the focus will be on making music with the guitar as opposed to just a dry, academic approach. And that is not to say that what we will be learning won't be academic. My curriculum is designed to create musically-conscious students who appreciate and understand music to a collegiate degree.

"Blake is an amazing teacher

My 11 year old son has been taking guitar lessons with Blake for almost 2 years now and we are both so impressed with Blake. My son likes and admires him and I believe that helps motivate him to continue with guitar. Blake relates well to children and his level of experience is far beyond what I could ever had hoped for in a teacher here in the small town of Lowell! We are lucky to have him :-)"

"Carla is a fantastic teacher! She keeps the lesson lively and interesting, pushes you along but not too much.
In just the handful of lessons I have had so far my level has jumped further than expected.
Carla has been very helpful with the "tricky-bits" that have caused me issues. Helped to remedy them and move on.
Look no further for a great teacher, better yet I'll keep her to myself."

Our son has made a lot of progress in both areas. Dan has very structured and balanced approach which he tailors to student's age and growing abilities. His patience and well versed musical experience makes learning fun. He is demanding and easy going at the same time. He is always punctual and responsible, so scheduling lessons is easy.
