Leo loved jamming out with Michael! We can’t wait until next week. Leo was super focused and he normally has a difficult time listening, but Michael was great.

Mike has great enthusiasm and energy when it comes to imparting his knowledge to those of us less enlightened. Very easy demeanor too. Thanks Mike.

Private Guitar Teacher

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.

Rob is an amazing teacher! My 6 year old daughter is very energetic, and has challenges staying on task. Rob makes every class fun, and adjusts his style or plan to keep her interested in the guitar lesson. I feel like she has learned a lot in a short period of time. I highly recommend Rob!
John
No show. I was set up and ready 10 minutes ahead of time, and 15 minutes after we were supposed to start I gave up. No call. no email, nothing. I called him at 6:20 to be told his day was screwed up by a funeral, and I told him my dog ate my homework. Pathetic. I knew I had a lesson, he must have known he had one to give, and no notification whatsoever. I don't do business like this.

Rob has a great eye for technique and is corrective and not critical.

Online Guitar Teacher

I have studied guitar for 5 years and currently studying music in college. I am able to teach any beginner or intermediate guitarist. I am most proficient in the rock and pop genres and am seasoned in blues and metal among a few other genres. My biggest focus is on the technique behind playing chords, melodies, solos, improv, and comping. I want to make sure any student of mine has the confidence to pick up a guitar and perform their favorite songs in any setting, or feel able enough to write their own music. PLEASE NOTE; I go to college in Boston and can only do house visits in my hometown over Summer break. Send me a message and we'll get started!

"Robert is very nice and polite. I think the lesson was sufficient for the first lesson. He gave me homework to work on the D, G, and C chords. We went over the right hand numbering PIMA. I need to determine what my goals are in playing the guitar."

"I think my friends are tired of hearing me talk about how much I love my guitar lessons with Indigo. She is patient and kind and has a deep knowledge of the guitar and of music in general. I always come away from our lessons feeling like I have moved forward in my learning and inspired to practice. I am a beginner in my mid thirties but I think Indigo would be a great teacher for all ages and skill levels. If you are thinking about taking guitar lessons your teacher should be Indigo, I can't recommend her more!"

Spice Up Your Playing with these Essential Guitar Strum Patterns

Many guitarists have a tendency to focus most of their practice time and energy on left-hand fretting technique. Although the left hand is very important, mastering different rhythms and guitar strum patterns with your right hand adds a whole new dimension to your guitar playing. Understanding Guitar Strum Patterns Start by playing a simple chord progression. Ideally, you should be able to play through the chords without looking at the fingers on your left hand. Starting with a simple prog …
