Lincoln A.

Greenfield, MA

About Lincoln

I am a professional jazz musician, actively teaching and performing in the Western Massachusetts music scene. In addition to years of live experience as well as teaching lessons, I have a Master's of Music degree in Jazz Performance from the University of Southern Maine, as well as a BA in Jazz Performance and Composition from Hampshire College in Amherst, MA.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are catered directly to each student as an individual. Of course, the building blocks of music provide a basic foundation for every musician, but beyond that the possibilities are endless. The best way
to approach each lesson is from your own perspective of what YOU want to learn. I can assess your strengths and weaknesses and help you get to the point where you can play what you want, when you want. My background in jazz and theory allows me to teach any style, and explain what is happening within the music, rather than just present a sheet of chords or scales. Ear training plays a big role in our lessons, with the goal of you being able to pop in a CD and be playing along with the song within a few bars. Of course, it takes work too! But my job is to make the "work" less like work and more like fun. Looking forward to meeting you, and playing music together!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Extra room for Music: all instruments, amps, seating for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
When traveling to students' home, I will bring my guitar, portable speakers w/ iPod hook-up, and any teaching papers I may need. The student is in charge of their own guitar / amp, etc.

*** Specialties ***
I enjoy all styles of music, and am capable of teaching all genres at a proficient level. I am primarily a jazz guitarist, and that is my area of expertise as well as what I am most passionate about. My knowledge in jazz gives me a broad knowledge of music theory - i.e. scales, modes, harmony, chord progressions, reading music, etc.

fantastic!

Lincoln is very knowledgable in music theory. His style is relaxed and is willing to adjust to my needs as a learner. It's been lots of fun after just three lessons!

Ms. Judy is my son's first private piano teacher and one of his favorite ones. Patrick, my son, started learning piano late at about 11 years old and he could start playing pieces fairly quickly within months. She is very patient, mindful, and thoughtful. When Ms. Judy needed to move over to east coast, she provided a list of local piano teachers and even recommended one who would fit best with Patrick. With the strong background knowledge from her, Patrick continues learning piano with the recommended teacher and enjoys playing harder classical pieces. I strongly recommend Ms. Judy as a piano teacher!!!

Both of my children have studied with Ms. Judy since age 3. Her knowledge of music is excellent, and her kindness and generosity is unsurpassed. She is extremely patient with children and simply a joy for the whole family to work with.

About Stephen

I am a recent graduate from UMass Amherst. I got my Bachelor of Music degree in Jazz Performance. I have been playing the guitar for about 11 years now and have been formally trained in Jazz. I can also play Bluegrass, Rock, Acoustic, Country, Pop, Fusion, Funk, Jam and Singer/Songwriter. Any of these genres I'm able to teach and give insight about playing and performing. I've been gigging and giving lessons for a few years now and I will utilize my experiences to give the student the best musical education on the specific style or genre that wants to be learned.

First of all - he is an amazing guitarist! Very talented for his age. He is really open to my ideas and goals as a musician. He helped me with my music theory and improvisation as well as rudiments. He was patient with my learning process and was able to adapt himself to the my learning style. Would recommend him to anyone! Also, a very funny and kind soul.

Erin P.

Orange, MA

About Erin

Hello and thank you for your consideration! I've been teaching all ages for many years and have experience working with different levels of abilities and different learning styles. I recently graduated with my Masters Degree in Music Performance from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and I received my Bachelors Degree in Music Performance from the University of Southern Maine. I perform and teach often around Western and Central Massachusetts. In your lesson, you can expect music that is educational and fun at the same time! My main philosophy is that you can enjoy practicing and play
ing while pushing yourself to do better. Each lesson contains warm ups, a scale test, an etude, and a solo piece. If time allows and your playing has shown improvement, duets are also included!

I look forward to teaching you!

Having a few guitar licks up your sleeve is super helpful when you're improvising. Guitar teacher Samuel B. shares a few of his favorite jazz guitar licks... Before we begin playing these jazz guitar licks, it's a good idea to get familiar with the pentatonic scale. The pentatonic scale is a more versatile and useful scale than you might think.
