I have over thirty years of experience teaching students of all ages and abilities. My youngest student is seven and my oldest student is seventy six. I am a graduate of Berklee College of Music and have years of experience playing with jazz, rock, funk and country groups as well as playing shows for touring acts. My versatility allows me to teach many styles. Whether it's teaching a beginning student how to play rock, helping a teenage student prepare for marching band or jazz band or showing a retiree how to play to their favorite song, I always enjoy help my students learn and improve.

About Rich

I am originally from a city just outside Boston, Massachusetts called Quincy. I was lucky to have studied with some of the finest teachers around Boston including the many great teachers at Berklee College of Music. While in Boston and studying at Berklee, I was an instructor for the Boston Crusader

Rich is an excellent teacher! He is an excellent performer who is accomplished in many different styles of music! I have watched him perform with many various groups playing different styles of music at different venues. He has an excellent ability to transcribe what he hears and write it down in musical notation. I can not recommend him highly enough.
Barry
Rich has worked with my son for the past three years. His knowledge and experience with music shows. He is patient and works hard to make him a better drummer. We highly recommend Rich for any drum lesson.
Tom
Simply put, Rich MacDonald is a remarkable drum teacher. Educated at Berklee, he is a veteran working drummer who knows, plays and can teach any style of music. His patience and adaptability to specific student needs is the perfect persona for teaching young beginners. For intermediates, he is a calm, steady guide to correcting mistakes and quirks that get in the way of effective technique. Even for experienced drummers, he is an incredible resource for expanding capabilities and mastering unfamiliar styles. His charts, when needed, are professional models of clarity.

With a long background in music, but not drums, I studied with Rich for four years and would be still were it not for unrelated physical issues.

There's no one I could recommend more highly, as a drum teacher...as a person. Studying with Rich is not only drum education, it's enjoyable.

Hi! Music is my life and passion. I believe I was born to play drums and want to give my musical knowledge to as many people as I can.
Whether you want to learn how to play from scratch, get back into it after taking time off or anything in between I will show you what to do and how to do it correctly and musically keeping it fun and challenging. Reading rhythms from snare drum to full kit and even treble and bass clef. I have you covered.. I've owned and operated my own school of rock for almost 2 decades, and can teach anyone how to play. I am also a professional guitarist and bassist, so when you get to a certain level we can (and will) jam to your favorite songs. I can guide and consult you on the right gear to buy for your best progress and budget. Let's do this, I’m ready to rock!

About Sandi

I am a lifelong musician, originally self-taught on several instruments including drums/ percussion (primary) electric lead and acoustic guitar, 4 and 5 string bass, ukulele, piano/ keys, and voice. I am a recording artist and have released several eps singles and albums. I played all bands in high

Jack
Sandi's a great drum teacher and is specifically great at connecting young burgeoning musicians and having them learn to play well together. This was especially important for me in helping me be comfortable playing in band settings which was and is the most important aspect of being a musician for me.
Emily
I just started taking lessons with Sandi this week. She was great and made it lots of fun! She made sure to gauge my skill level before I arrived, and prepared a fun first lesson for me. She is really skilled at telling how much challenge to give a student, which makes it fun for the student but also makes you want to practice and come back to learn more! Sandi is laid back, very approachable and super friendly. She’s a wealth of information on music, equipment, and even is helpful with booking classes through the website!
Kristen
This is my Second attempt at learning guitar - my first attempt with a different teacher ended before I could strum a song. Sandi’s teaching style makes learning guitar enjoyable. She teaches chords and songs and introduces music theory as you progress. Sandi also provides the encouragement needed to keep practicing even if you think you’ll never get there.

A godsend. Matt is super approachable and got me launched back into playing in a meaningful way. Widely knowledgeable, he never missed a beat and was able to help with everything from details of technique to overall approach, and successfully introduce new and challenging music. When it came time to learn recording he was always ready a couple steps ahead to show efficient ways to get things done.
Alex
Matthew helped me work on pop and bossa nova songs for guitar. He is a patient and easy-going teacher who helped me at my own pace. We went over finger style techniques and rhythmic exercises. I have been enjoying lessons and I look forward to studying more with him.
Lisa
Matt is great! He is very patient and explains things step-by-step in a very comprehensive and easy to understand manner. And best of all, he never makes you feel like any questions you ask, is irrelevant or repetitious. I highly recommend Matt, and plan on continuing to take lessons from him in the future!!

Theory. Technique. Reading. Proper style. You'll learn it all here!

I've been helping people enjoy music for 26 years.

Having proper technical skills that become second nature and learning to read music will give you confidence.

I tailor lessons to each student's needs, talents and learning styles. And I will try to ensure that you play with ease and in a healthy manner with joy! I don't expect you to become a star (unless you want to) - just have a good time and play the music you want to.

About Laura

Of course you want an experienced, passionate, patient and compassionate teacher! Teaching is not my job; it is my calling and I am very good at it. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music Education (1987, Ball State University) and a Master of Music degree in Voice (1994, University of South

"Hello everyone!

I just started taking lessons with Loudel and it has been a pleasant experience so far. She is a native speaker, but also able to translate and communicate clearly the different nuances and details of the language into English. I grew up around Tagalog, and the way she explains and goes over the material is wonderful. She exhibits much patience, understanding and encouragement throughout the lesson. I highly recommend as she is very thorough in reviewing her provided materials and a skilled instructor.

I'm excited to continue this course and hope to reach a decent level of fluency soon with her help! Maraming salamat to TakeLessons for this pairing. Magaling mag-tuto siya!"
