Ian C.

Peabody, MA

About Ian

First, some exciting news! I just became a part of takelessons online lesson program, and now I can teach students from anywhere in the country! But I digress... Let's see, first and foremost I'm a music lover of the highest order. Whether it's jazz, rock, indie, classical, hip-hop or country, if it's good music, I love it. I grew up obsessively listening to everything i could get my hands on, and began playing guitar at the age of 11. That was cut short, though, when the next year I almost lost my middle finger on my left hand in an ice skating incident. It took 5 years for me to regain the strength and motion, during which time I was forced to give up guitar playing altogether. I never lost my passion for music, though, and in my heart i never stopped dreaming about what it ...

Great teacher and nice guy!

I started singing lessons as a complete beginner, although I am in my 30s. Ian was happy to teach me the basics and then we dove right in to something I was interested in learning to sing. He was easy to talk to and encouraging, but willing to point out what I could improve as well. I would recommend him to others.

Awesome teacher!!!

Took a couple singing lessons in the past with a different teacher and I didn't get very far. Ian has a great teaching style and I can already hear a difference in my singing just in the first few weeks of lessons. He is very encouraging, especially for a beginner like me. His constructive criticism is equally helpful. Highly recommended.

Fantastic, Genre Diverse Vocal Teacher

In addition to thoroughly addressing all of the issues that initially spurned my desire for vocal lessons, we also examined and exercised other critical areas that he brought to my attention, and laid a strong foundation for singing technique.

My three granddaughters and I are taking lessons with Ben. I asked each of the girls to give me three words about Ben and we all agreed. He is patient, fun and funny and, they added, "I really like him and he knows a lot about teaching and playing the piano." I was a teacher and professor for many years, and I know good teaching when I see it. Ben is a very good teacher. Not only is he patient and at ease with his students, he seems always to be aware of each of them and able to respond to their needs. I'm impressed and feel fortunate to have found someone who is also responsible and reliable, and takes his work seriously. It is a great pleasure to work with Ben and we all look forward to our weekly lesson.

Top notch teacher

My son has been taking lessons from Ben now for a little over a month. I cannot say enough about the professionalism and reliability of Ben. I figured it would take a lot to keep a 16 year old boy who is a beginner totally interested in piano but Ben has managed to do just that. My son actually looks forward to his weekly lessons and practices without hesitation and I can only attribute that to the teaching techniques of Ben. If anyone is contemplating on choosing Ben for their or their child's instructor, hesitate no further. He is one of the best.

Phil S.

Wakefield, MA

Whether you're a vocalist/songwriter, Jazz, Rock, Funk, Blues, or a Heavy Metal Shredder...I can help you develop the necessary techniques to find your voice on the instrument. Many of my students (present and former) have gone on to enjoy successful performing, recording, and teaching careers. With transcription and analysis of the music that moves you the most, you'd be surprised how fun and rewarding practicing becomes! Whatever your goal is, it has always been my commitment to help inspire the student to love the pursuit as much as the goal itself.

About Phil

With over 15 years experience teaching guitar lessons full time and performing internationally, I have enjoyed working with students ranging from beginner to advanced in all styles whether it be Jazz, Rock , Heavy Metal, Folk, Blues and everything in between. It is my goal as a teacher to evaluate your existing level and work to inspire you and to help achieve your goals. Whether you want to study Jazz Improvisation, Van Halen, James Taylor, or Guns and Roses, I believe all styles are interconnected and your technique, theory, ear-training, and musicianship can be developed through any style that interests you. Above all else, learning how to play the guitar should be FUN and INSPIRING! So, contact me on take lessons and lets get started! Resume is available upon request. Thanks ...

Although I'm not technically a student of Phil's, I learn a lot from him every time I play and teach with him. We perform regularly at Berklee, where I'm a professor, and we give concerts and masterclasses all over the Northeast together (most recent was at Cornell). Phil's a warmhearted, patient, brilliant teacher and an outstanding and creative musician, seamlessly putting together everything he knows--jazz, shredding, classical--there's no boundaries for him! He's great at explaining things, and he never belittles a question, no matter how dumb you might have thought it was. Phil's a great friend and a great teacher. -John Funkhouser, Berklee College of Music, Boston

Guitar · In studio
In addition to being the most talented guitarist and musician I have ever had the opportunity to play with, Phil is an astoundingly good teacher. I've played guitar for 8 years and taken private lessons the entire time. Phil has been my teacher for the past 2 years and in that time I have progressed as a musician more than I could have ever imagined. Phil has been the biggest factor in my decision to major in music, due to his unrivaled musical talent, his kind, unassuming, (and funny) demeanor and his seemingly limitless knowledge of the fretboard. He is well versed in so many genres of music, and has such an effortless grasp on improvisation. Any guitarist, from immediate beginners to seasoned professionals, can learn so much from Phil. Need I say more?

Phil is the man! I had been playing for several years before I took lessons with him. He has introduced me to volumes of new music, helped me grow as an improviser, and even taught me how to read for the guitar (which was never my goal in taking lessons, but I'm very happy I can read now). He's helped to expand my playing by constantly introducing new and creative ideas in a supportive atmosphere.

Phil demonstrates a mastery of his instrument while always making his lessons accessible to the student. Definitely check this guy out if you want to reach the next level!
