Learning to play guitar can be a daunting task. Don breaks it down into easy to understand lessons. After each lesson he sends me home with practice homework so I constantly feel like I'm making progress.

The most important thing for me when i wanted to take lesson was that the teacher new his stuff, Don definitely does. I'm not just learning to play guitar, i'm also learning more about music.

When looking for a guitar teacher for my daughter, I was so pleased to find Don. He knew exactly where to begin with her and started her playing music right away. His creative techniques keep her engaged and excitedly looking for what's coming next. He is professional, yet warm at the same time, putting both her and I at ease. It is amazing to see the transformation in my daughter's guitar abilities as well as the transformation in her confidence. Don's expertise and patience is perfectly blended.
Thanks Don!

Don has taught my son for over four years. He couldn't even read yet and Don was still able to get through to him. Great blend of modern rock and classics. Don blends the ability to teach skills, theory, and essential building blocks while also working in stuff that the students want to play.

Also, from a technology standpoint, Don uses a great site with file uploads, customize backing tracks and the ability to schedule. I would recommend to anyone interested in learning guitar from someone who cares about his students.

Max S.

West Hartford, CT

About Max

I am a performing musician who is passionate about helping students achieve their goals.

I currently perform over fifty concerts a year with the Asylum Quartet, an award-winning ensemble acclaimed for virtuosity, creativity, and innovation. I have also performed with the Juilliard Orchestra, the U.S. Coast Guard Band, and International Opera Theater. As tenor saxophonist in the Ineo Quartet, I received honors in the J.C. Arriaga, Music Teachers National Association (MTNA), and North American Saxophone Alliance (NASA) chamber music competitions. I hold a Master's in Music from The Hartt Sc
hool and a Bachelor of Music summa cum laude from Arizona State University (ASU).

I have eight years of private teaching experience. Additionally, I completed a ten-week private teaching mentorship at the Hartt Community Division with saxophone instructor Sheri Brown.

Though I specialize in saxophone, I also love teaching beginning and intermediate piano.

*** Lesson Details ***
I strive to make lessons fun, challenging, and inspiring. I love teaching students of all levels.

Here is my teaching philosophy in more detail:

Why learn music? Music shares many the benefits of other subjects. Learning an instrument teaches multi-level techniques of problem solving, responsibility, teamwork, literacy, and self-expression. But unlike any other subject, music unites three domains of learning: psychomotor (physical motion), cognitive (analytical thought), and aesthetic (assessment of artistic beauty). Music is a mode of self-expression shared by all cultures - this powerful universality suggests that music should be part of a well-rounded education. At its most basic, music requires us to learn to listen. The process of listening and learning from others is fundamental to human civilization, and music helps us develop listening skills to their full potential.

Why learn the saxophone? Invented in 1856, the saxophone is a relatively young instrument. Yet in its short history, the saxophone has rocketed to immense popularity. The saxophone plays well with others - in jazz combos and big bands, concert bands, saxophone quartets, and reed quintets - and projects effortlessly as a solo instrument. A hybrid between woodwind and brass instruments, the instrument is capable of the softest murmurs, the loudest bellows and honks, lovely singing lines, agile leaps and mesmerizing runs, and much more. Studying the saxophone offers the student access to stylistic variety and rich performance traditions second to none. Yet as a young instrument, the saxophone beckons with endless unexplored possibilities to the creative performer.

Why learn with me? The famous violin teacher Shinichi Suzuki wondered, "Japanese children can all speak Japanese!...How, by what means, does this come about?" We all now know the answer. Japanese children have abundant access to great models of Japanese-speaking: the adults around them. So as a teacher, I seek to provide a great model of saxophone playing. I rely on teaching by example, and encourage students to learn by ear whenever possible. In conjunction with ear training, I address fundamentals (breathing, tone production, articulation, voicing, reading music, and technique) in every lesson, so that students develop great technical ability on the instrument. Finally, I hope to provide a model of responsibility, empathy, and creativity, which I believe are central to our development as musicians and people.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students should have a working saxophone with appropriate mouthpiece and reeds (with my help if needed!), a music stand, and other lesson materials (metronome, tuner, notebook, method books / pieces, personal recording device, etc.). I often provide handouts of music and exercises in lessons.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical saxophone, but also have experience performing, studying, and teaching jazz. My goal is to give students a solid set of fundamentals in saxophone playing, forge strong aural and reading skills, and engender a broad curiosity in listening habits. I believe modeling great playing is key. Of course, I want students to internalize and replicate a good saxophone sound. But I also want students to form the critical listening skills of mimicking and blending with other musicians. I believe these things will enable them to excel as musicians in any field.

About Brian

Guitarist Brian H. studied at The Hartford Conservatory and the Hartt School of Music, graduating at the top of his class with honors from The Hartford Conservatory. Brian has been a guitar and bass instructor at Choate Rosemary Hall since 1999. Brian also teaches at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, The Music Shop in Southington, and is the owner of Guitar Star Studio, located in Glastonbury, CT.

*** Lesson Details ***
In the first half of the lesson, students can expect to learn music fundamentals from a guitar method book, i.e. how to read music; I also teach guitar tablature. Depending on ability (beginner, intermediate, advanced), I will show them chords, scales and how to play a guitar solo. The second half of the lesson is spent with the student learning their favorite songs and building a repertoire (song list) for possbile future performances.

*** Studio Equipment ***
home: Seating for parents. I provide the amp, instrument cable and music stand. I expect the student to have a guitar and notebook. If the student does not have a guitar, I will give a referral for reasonably priced guitars.

I have been taking guitar lessons from Brian for a little over a year. His style is both patient and encouraging. I admire his ability to "hear the music"....every note ! I am an adult who has wanted to learn guitar for many years and thrilled to have found Brian. He truly displays a desire to teach at a pace that is comfortable. I would recommend him to folks of all ages.

Becca H.

Hartford, CT

About Becca

I have enjoyed the stage and the thrill of entertaining since I was a child. I have been in numerous productions, including Las Vegas Academy's €œSweeney Todd€ starring as Mrs. Lovett, which was selected as a highlighted show at the National Thespian Conference, Cats as Pouncival, €œLittle Women€ as Marmee, National Thespian€™s €œHairspray as Prudy, Super Summer Theatre€™s Annie as Pepper, and many more! I have also done work as a recording studio vocalist and corporate performer on the Las Vegas Strip. I have been studying voice with the famed Jeffrey Skouson for the past decade and continu
e to study teaching with him as well. I have received performance training from many different sources including Professional Broadway Performers, Famed Acting Coaches, Vocal Stylizing Coaches to the Stars, and Master Vocal Teachers. My love of performing transformed into a new love for teaching people to sing and act so that they too can experience the same joy I feel when I'm on the stage. Because of this love I studied music education at Brigham Young University ID and became a certified Vocal Instructor in the Institute for Vocal Advancement (previously a certified Speech Level Singing Instructor) in an extensive program where I must complete education and testing each year. I focus on building a singer€™s range and strength in healthy ways in all genres of music. I work with all types of performers from recording studios to the stage.
During your first lesson, I will assess your voice to determine your tendencies and weak spots. In each lesson we will begin with a series of exercises that will turn your weaknesses into strengths. We will then apply these techniques to songs of your choice. During each lesson, we can work on performance, styling and any areas you may need instruction in. If you would like to sing from the bottom to the top of your voice with strength and ease, I am the teacher for you!

Bass Guitar · In studio
Tim came recommended from a friend. I had been playing guitar and bass for close to 20 years, without ever taking a single lesson. I'd been focusing on bass for the last 10 years, and decided that I wanted to take my bass playing to the next level - theory, reading music, etc.

Fast forward a year later, and I'm reading and learning music not only from sheet music, but from jazz charts - something I hadn't even imagined going in. I've gained a new appreciation for the music as a result.

Everyone that knows me well has commented on the improvement in my overall bass playing, from the wife to people who I've spent years jamming with. In short, if you're looking to expand your abilities, you can't go wrong with Tim.
