Barry W. Plaistow, NH

About Barry

I have 5+ years of professional teaching experience both guitar and piano....I have all the degrees BS & MS,none of which are in Music, but my whole family is musically orientated. 1/2 my immediate family had a wedding band for years when I was a youngster. My father still to this day fixes instruments in his retirement and plays out still as well. My father was actually the one who said don't go to school for music its a tough world out there for folks with music degrees, but I wish I had gone against his advice on that one. I love teaching and would have liked to have done it in a school system. I have in the past been a substitute teacher for some of the local schools in there music departments. I have a great deal of knowledge and teach to have fun, but understanding there is time for

Robert M. Exeter, NH

About Robert

Robert's exemplary and diverse career all began when he was a very small boy. His magical, musical journey began with his Grandfather, Donald Mcullick, a country singer/guitarist, who spent the 1950's touring and performing with blockbuster artists such as Johnny Cash, Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison. Grandpa would take his young protégé out to the swing under the apple tree in the backyard and show him songs on an old acoustic guitar. He would later give that guitar to Robert. That guitar was the key to the music box of Robert's life. A life long dedicated to the art and craft of music. Robert's high school years were very non-traditional. While most students spent time at football games and pep rallies, Robert spent his time performing in pit orchestras and composing for local theater ...

Benjamin G. Sanford, ME

About Benjamin

I studied jazz performance & classical music at USM and studied jazz piano with Charlie Banacos. I have been teaching since I was 15 years old through the state's Gifted program and qualified for both gifted in fine arts as well as the general IQ requirement. I currently have students ranging from the age of 4 to 78 years old, most of which are in the range of 6-17 years old. I have undergone background checks with Tune Town music in Wells, ME. since I started working there 6 years ago. I have had great success with many students resulting in some deciding on music as a career and going off to college specifically for piano. I have had experience teaching people with special needs ranging from autism to ADD, and also sometimes with what I consider great success. (Achieved ...

I can't rate Ben with 5 stars because he has been the only teacher my daughter has had. I would recommend Ben. He is great with her, she is learning and enjoying playing the piano. Kudos to Ben!!!

Joseph G. Byfield, MA

About Joseph

YouTube is a great resource, but nothing can replace the one-on-one learning experience of having your own teacher. I am an experienced guitar teacher who can teach CLASSICAL, FINGER STYLE FOLK, ELECTRIC GUITAR STYLES including, BLUES, ROCK and JAZZ. I understand music theory in depth and can read music (not many can these days!). Beginner to Advanced - I can help you reach your goals musically. PLAYING THE GUITAR IS MORE THAN JUST STRUMMING CHORDS: I can help you understand not just how but WHY you play certain chords, patterns or notes. In its most rudimentary form, MUSIC IS MATH! I can help you understand this relationship - usually without you even noticing (because we want to keep it fun!) I LET YOU BE IN CONTROL OF YOUR LEARNING PATH: No two people learn exactly alike. I ...
