Sean R. Lowell, MA

About Sean

In the 20 years I've been playing guitar and drums, I've done quite a bit. In the past, I toured quite extensively with my band, playing with the likes of All That Remains, As I Lay Dying, blessthefall, Alesana, Soulfly and many others (for all you metal and post hardcore fans). I've been teaching independently since 2002 and with music store affiliation since 2006. I've also played countless corporate events and weddings as a pickup musician with Murray Hill Talent in Boston. As the experience piles on, so do the real world inspired lessons and tips. *** Lesson Details *** First lessons are highly variable depending on a students experience. If you've never played an instrument before, expect the first day to be a lot of talking. While there will be plenty to take in, it won't be ...

Bethany A. Bedford, MA

About Bethany

I started studying classical piano at the age of 6 and continued through high school before going on to study with Robert Shannon at Oberlin Conservatory, where I majored in music history and theory (as well as English and creative writing - I've always had a lot of interests!). I also sang in choirs from a early age, including my high school's Madrigal Singers, the MMEA Northeast District Chorus, and the Oberlin College Choir, a select group which performs regularly with the Cleveland Orchestra. After graduation, I tried out a variety of musical activities, including singing with a semi-professional a Capella group, None of the Above, and appearing in local community theatre productions. But I finally realized that I'm most comfortable behind a piano, whether playing and conducting for ...

Voice lessons with Bethany were very good for me. She tailored our warm up exercises for my particular needs. She has good advice for breathing and vowel sounds for each piece and general advice for technique to make a piece sound better and be easier to sing. She also plays piano well for accompaniment. I hope to take lessons again with her soon.

Bethany Aiken is doing a wonderful job teaching my 9 year old daughter Amelia Miller piano and vocal lessons. Amelia really enjoys her sessions and is learning so much. Bethany is a very calm and patient instructor which puts my daughter at ease and she feels so comfortable.

Jeanne is a fantastic teacher

Jeanne is a great person and very easy to communicate with and I personally think that makes for a nice teacher/student relationship. I can ask her questions and she explains things very well. I feel in the 4 short weeks I have been working with her that she has taught me quite a bit. Each week I leave there with something new to challenge myself with. I would highly recommend Jeanne as she is a wonderful piano teacher. Thank you Jeanne. I look forward to this journey of learning.

I am extemly pleased with the progress I have made thusfar. Elizabeth's method of teaching has taught me so much more than I would have expected to learn in the short amount of time that I have been involved so far. I am looking forward to a long and productive musical journey with Elizabeth and I'm confident that my talents, with Elizabeth's help, will improve beyond what I have imagined to achieve on my own through many years of unproductive struggle.
Phil S. Wakefield, MA

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!
