Private Guitar Teacher

I tried to teach guitar in the same manner in which I teach every instrument. First I teach students the rudiments of the instrument. Also I teach them how to read and a bit of music theory. From that point I like to follow the students lead. They bring in songs that they would like to learn, or possibly how to play lead guitar, or how to finger pick. At every point I try to point out general aspects of music that need to be learned from the material that they choose.

About John

Hello, Thanks so much for taking the time to inquire about studying music with me. Music and studying music has always been a passionate experience for me. I have been so blessed with the teachers and fellow musicians in my life. You should realize that your study of music may start with me

My goal as a teacher is to help my students play music and achieve their individual goals while getting the best possible sound from the guitar. After a musical foundation is established, I have found that technique is learned best when in tandem with repertoire that supports it. While I encourage my students to explore various and any genres of music, I do request that my students are open to learning technique as it equips the student with the skills necessary to tackle any genre of music.

His programs, which focus on the music of the 20th and 21st centuries, have led him to collaborate with variety of venues and organizations such as the Newman Center for the Performing Arts, Society of the Cincinnati,

Online Guitar Teacher

Hello! My name is Max Fletcher - I have been playing and teaching guitar for over 15 years. I recently graduated from the New England Conservatory of Music, where I studied Guitar Performance with Maestros Eliot Fisk and Joe Morris, and Composition with Stratis Minakakis. When teaching, I have always tried to provide a multi-faceted and multi-dimensional experience that encourages learning to take place on many levels simultaneously. Music making is a process that involves many technical, theoretical, practical, and even historical elements, and is not a linear progression but often more circular in nature. In my own practice I have always tried to let the music guide and inform me, and consequently the most important element of my teaching is the experience of the music itself.

About Max

I began with the electric guitar at age 10 playing jazz, blues, and metal before becoming interested in classical guitar when I was 14. I have performed internationally in numerous masterclasses for esteemed guitarists such as Leo Brouwer, Eduardo Fernandez, David Tanenbaum, Jorge Caballero, Zaira

"My 11 year old has had weekly guitar lessons from Dave for two years now.
Her knowledge and confidence in playing the guitar, has greatly improved. Dave gets all the credit for that.
He works well with her, is communicative, and is as flexible as he can be, even last minute.
I have, and will continue to recommend Dave to anyone interested in taking guitar lessons"

"I took lessons from William for approximately three years before work-life squelched my personal guitar playing aspirations. William was a wonderful teacher with whom I still stay in touch. He was willing to share with me as much theory as I could handle, in addition to a diverse exposure to blues, jazz, rock, and from time to time, seduced my ear and stretched my playing aspirations by having me dabble in some classical (fingering techniques). He also exposed me to various musical genres through listening sessions to keep me motivated and present to me endless aural possibilities to which to aspire. I believe I could take a life time of lessons from William and never get bored. He is also a subject matter expert in all types of gear: guitars, strings, and equipment. He, during my tutelage under him, had numerous guitars of all types, makes and models (which he would occasionally allow me to play). I miss my lessons and hope he will be active teaching, when I am able to retire, so as to resume my learning adventure."

"I have been learning guitar with John for past 3 months and it is a great experience. John is very knowledgeable and patient to guide me with the much more efficient path to learn play with songs. I was trying to learn from books and YouTube videos for past 1 year, but much more improvements were made after two lessons with John! I also love his teaching styles very much: trying to explain WHY things work the way it is (e.g., music theory) instead of give a lot of "recipe level" exercises you can get from a book. I would strongly recommend him as a guitar teacher to any level!"
