Mrs. Strange is the best teacher I have ever had. She is always well prepared going into every lesson. The lessons are clear, concise, and constructive. She does her best to adjust her teaching style to you for the best progress possible. Mrs. Strange gets to know you and cares for every student equally. She does not view you as another student because every student is important to her. You can go to her for any problems you are having with technique, tone quality, sound projection, or any other problem you may have as a student and she will work through the problems with you until you feel comfortable enough to move on to other troubles you are having. Every lesson with Mrs. Strange has a reason, you will never waste time or money with her as a teacher because she can help you achieve new heights as a musician and then surpass them. She taught me everything I needed to know in order to make it into a university for music performance and she still helps me to this day when I am struggling. I recommend her as a teacher to anyone who wants to become a better musician.

Very good teacher

Theresa is most excellent. There's no question that she knows music and is an accomplished musician, but the real trick is being able to share that talent with a saugsage-fingered doob such as myself. And make it seem a reasonable proposition, something you could do. She has an innate style of instruction that is at once comforting and challenging,setting the bar ever higher while giving enough encouragement that you want to do better. My highest recommendation.

We are so grateful to have found Joseph. Our daughter is so happy to be able to work with someone with so much experience. We can’t wait for her next lesson. She learned so much.

Very friendly, personable, professional and a great teacher.
Anna M.
This is my first time taking any kind of vocal lessons so I was very nervous. Joseph made me feel very comfortable and really works on what I want to improve on. He is encouraging and very supportive of my ambitious singing goals. I just purchased another month's worth of lessons. Would definitely recommend.

I place a heavy emphasis on not only playing music but understanding it. Understanding what you're playing is one of the most important differences between an amateur and a professional musician.

Music is all about relationships and patterns. I teach my students to recognize and identify these relationships and patterns to set them up on the course for musical mastery.

On guitar you can learn to read music and/or play by ear. You can learn various techniques such as fingerstyle, using a pick, or combining the two. You can learn how to utilize the entire guitar neck and play in all keys. You can learn how to play chords and melodies at the same time, and you can learn to improvise in various styles.

Suzuki. The name of this method conjures up a single brand of training, but, in fact, there are as many takes on Suzuki as there are teachers! I've been teaching with the Suzuki Method for over 30 years, and much of my knowledge has come from being one of the first generation Suzuki students in this country. My father, who was my first teacher, studied directly with Dr. Suzuki at Peabody School of Music in Maryland when Suzuki first introduced his philosophies to the US. My teaching reflects what I feel works best, and what doesn't translate from the strictest interpretations of the Suzuki Method.

About Jill

I've been in and around music all my life. I started violin at age 5, part of the first generation of Suzuki violinists in the United States. I've loved being a professional violinist and violin teacher for over 30 years! And I've also founded and directed three community music schools in Newburyp

I've been teaching sitar for 5 years and my students have gone on to develop a love for Indian classical music and culture. Within the first few lessons, you'll be properly holding the sitar and playing notes and phrases. Then, we take particular ragas and begin layering in raga and tala theory and more advanced techniques. My greatest joy is taking a student who started with no musical experience and getting them to the point of successfully performing on stage with tabla accompaniment.

I have always loved the sound of the sitar but did not think it would be practical to play it. Mat proved me wrong put me at ease by opening the door to this wonderful instrument, and he has made it not so daunting. It is a pleasure to learn from him, and I am really enjoying the fun challenges of the sitar.

Ms. Whitney is an incredible teacher and an outstanding flutist. Every week I look forward to lessons with her and enjoy taking time from my day to learn from her. I learn something new every week and she always knows how to help me improve my playing.
Selina
My daughter took lessons from Whitney for several years, and Whitney was an excellent fit for her as teacher. She provided the right balance of structure and flexibility that allowed my daughter to advance her skills and still have fun with non-Suzuki music as well. She is kind, patient, encouraging, and fun-loving. Highly recommend Whitney as a flute teacher.

Matthew's home studio is immaculate and inviting for budding musicians! Thank you Matthew for making our son's first experience with lessons challenging and fun at the same time. I am even learning musical terminology with my son ( I even secretly practice the drums when no one is around - it's like 2 for the price of one!)."

"John Krauss has been teaching our 4th grade boy acoustic guitar for the past year. When he started, our son could not clap a rhythm to save his life but now is learning to strum on beat and follow along with lessons successfully. John challenges our 9 year old with different styles and techniques that push him to the next level. He encourages our child in a warm and respectful way. We appreciate John's professionalism and patience with working with a young student. We highly recommend him. "John is a nice guy who helps me learn new chords and licks. I like my lessons!" says the 4th grader."
