I have been teaching saxophone for 15+ years. I enjoy teaching people of all ages, both children and adults, of all levels. I believe in teaching a strong core of music fundamentals but also in finding what makes music special to each student. Lessons should be fun and engaging. I have several students audition into regional bands, and select school ensembles every year. But we also make sure to play some pop tunes and top 40.

I have had the pleasure of studying trumpet at James Madison University with Jim Kluesner, who was a student of perhaps the greatest trumpet teacher of all time, Vincent Chicowitz. As a student of Jim, my process and pedagogy is based on the teaching of Chicowitz. Most of my experience as a player is in the classical realm, performing with Orchestra and Wind Ensemble. I also have experience playing lead trumpet in a big band and can give good insight and direction if that is the style of playing you are interested in. I am a licensed teacher for k-12 Instrumental Music. I have directed both middle school and high school band programs. I am currently a Doctoral student in Instrumental Conducting at The Hartt School of Music at the University of Hartford.

About James

Hello trumpet players! My name is James and I am an accomplished performer and teacher. My grand teacher was Vincent Chicowitz, the famous 2nd trumpet player from the legendary Chicago Symphony brass section. He is regarded as one of the best if not the best trumpet pedagogue of his time, and muc

Steve is an excellent musician and gifted teacher. He is intuitive and nurtures individual talent.
JD Tamucci
24 yo Baritone | I've taken singing lessons with Steve for about 10 months. Before starting, I had moderate singing experience from competitive high school choirs but had regressed by picking up a few bad habits in the 6-ish years since.

I came in with few specific goals aside from becoming a better all-around singer.

Steve initially helped me improve my technique and cultivate a fuller sound using a variety of physicalization exercises. Since, we have progressed through songs he selected that each challenged certain parts of my voice while also highlighting my strengths. We'd keep coming back to songs I struggled with until I developed the desired skill. In that way, each song kind of brought its own lesson.

10 months later, I have a collection of songs I can perform confidently. In this time, we've also spent time on music theory and focusing on new skills I grew interested in improving (like singing with quiet intensity).

Finally, it's also important to note that Steve has always been patient, kind, and supportive. I was nervous before starting singing lessons again, but his gentle though direct feedback put me at ease quickly.
Rj B.
Steve is simply awesome! He is patient and great with kids. My 5 year old was so comfortable and learned a lot even on his first day.

I have learned more from Adam than I had from my two previous mandolin teachers. He is very knowledgeable and skilled in all of the instruments he teaches.
Bob
I play guitar in a local band and we decided we needed mandolin on this part, so I put an ad in Craigslist. Long story short the guy we hired to do the part turns out was a teacher. I always wanted to learn the fiddle so I thought a couple lessons would be enough, but this guy knows so much and so many styles that I'm hooked. I live in Greenfield, so most of my lessons are online
Wendy
I asked at Downtown Sounds in Northampton who is the best fiddle teacher in western MA. Joe said "Adam Sweet". I called and he responded promptly. I must say, he's very patient and knowledgeable. I've been taking lessons now from Mr. Sweet since 2009 when he was teaching in South Hadley

My name is Wassim, and I have been a guitarist for over 10 years, and an avid lover of music for as long as I can hear and remember. My area of focus and interest is customizing a modern learning approach that fits your goals, pace, and aspirations. Learning guitar techniques and music theory isn’t all you can expect to gain from my time, you will also be able to learn about all the other captivating aspects of music on this quest; such as music notation, arranging, transcribing, ear training, tracking and producing (if they happen to align with your goals). We all have music in us, and together you’ll be able to not only tap into the music you want to make, but you'll also create and share it with the world.

With an ever-growing amount of instructional guitar content available at our fingertips, it can be easy to get overwhelmed on your musical journey and often find it challenging to know where to begin, or if you’re even on the most impactful path for you.

My pledge is to work ...

About Wassim

Everyone has the ability to reach their musical goals, with the right amount of correct guidance, planning, patience, practice, time and consistency. Take it from someone who has made this their life mission, who has seen the joy that the feeling and sound of progress brings to people, and who will

Chess Openings & How To Start Your Game Strong

As a game, chess is traditionally divided into three phases: the opening, the middlegame, and the endgame. While all three are important, today I’m going to help you start out strong in the opening. When I first learned how to play chess, I played openings that really did not help me improve and left me with an awkward start to the game more often than not. Eventually, I adopted some of the openings that I will show you in this post and my rating skyrocketed. Opening Principles The first …
