Private Guitar Teacher

I love teaching music. I first picked up my first guitar when I was 13, and haven't put it down since! I've had many different teachers over the years, but the ones that helped me grow the most, were the most patient, understanding, and encouraging. These are the values I bring to the forefront of my practice. I believe making music is something that everyone is able to do, when they find the process and conditions that work for them. It is my job to help you discover those things, and have fun in the process!

The guitar is a miraculous instrument because of its distinctiveness and versatility. It can sing lead, or backup the rhythm section. The direction you choose to pursue on the instrument is entirely unique to your experience and perspective. I've learned to create a wide range of sounds on the guitar from blues and rock to folk and soul, by playing with many different types of musicians over the years. I look forward to helping you learn the patterns and principals of music ...

About Scott

Hello fellow music lover! My name is Scott, and I'm a musician with 15+ years of performance experience. I've studied performance at Berklee College of Music and performed in various configurations from funk/soul ensembles, to folk-rock bands and I write my own music that I perform as a solo art

Great instructor with the knowledge to teach superbly, with the insight to reach high levels of efficiency!
Dan
Scott is a patient and supportive teacher. He helped me tap into my musical intuition while also supporting a practical understanding of music theory. Working with Scott felt like having a mentor, rather a teacher, to support me on my musical journey.
Kelly
Scott taught me introductory drums. Scott is warm, funny, and adaptable - he made learning fun and easy for me. I didn't feel dumb when I made mistakes, in no small part because Scott was very encouraging and pointed out the things I was doing well!

Another reason to take lessons with Scott - he's incredibly talented and plays multiple instruments. For example, I wanted to practice playing drums in a "band" setting, so Scott grabbed an electric bass and we started jamming.

10/10 would recommend, especially if you like laughing a lot while you learn a new skill!

I can teach how to read, listen, interpret, improvise and evolve many musical skills.

Gregg was my musical instructor during the early 1980ties. What I learned in a few lessons with him was more that I could have expected. I was primarily focused on percussion, of which his vast knowledge was highly dynamic. I learned about poly-rhythms, Indian ti-hies, and complex time signatures. He had available much reference material that he provided me. And over the years his musical insights have not only supplemented my inquiries, but made me a better musician and person. I hope you have a chance to study with Gregg, as you will be introduced to a new and better way of musicianship!

I recently began singing again after a year and was very unconfident in my voice and my ability to improve. Albino was the perfect instructor for someone like me because of his patience and positivity. He was able to point out issues with my singing technique or provide feedback in a very positive way, without seeming critical. Whenever I was confused about something, he would work with me non-stop until I understood. Albino inspires confidence in all his students, and I highly recommend him as a teacher!

Ced
Before looking for a guitar teacher I knew I wanted someone who could teach to me why things work the way that they do in music and also the importance of practice and technique. Trev does a tremendous job of turning complicated theory into something simple to get you playing fast and confidentially. My favorite thing about Trev is his patience when he teaches and his constant reminders to trust the process, keep working and I'll be the guitar player I've always wanted to be. Appreciate you Trev!
Emily
Trevor is a dedicated teacher. He is eager to help you learn and grow as a musician. He takes his student's wants into consideration and helps them learn songs and genres they are passionate about. He is flexible, personable and patient.

He is professional and patient yet he meets you where you are. I had played piano many years ago and he quickly assessed where I am today and asked what I wanted to accomplish at this point. He showed me things that I was never taught all those years ago. He is kind and so easy to work with. Can't say enough about him. Wasn't sure if I could play again after so many years. I have had hand surgery and can't wait to continue my lessons. He showed me that I can. Great for this old lady, I mean elderly person.

I have been taking banjo lessons from Kevin for a couple of years. Kevin is a wonderfully talented instructor and a great musician himself! He shapes my lessons around practical use in performance, always encouraging and ever-challenging, but with plenty of patience and just plain fun. Trust me, you will not find a better teacher!
Jack
Kevin Fleming is an excellent teacher. He is a world-class guitarist, who relates well to his students, including a novice like me. With his help, I progressed from a middle-aged beginner to a modestly competent guitarist who can play and sing along by memory to over 30 songs from my youth.

"Jimmy is a great guitar teacher with a great approach. He helps you build a rock solid foundation for playing the guitar, which makes it easier to just sit down and play. This foundation includes calisthenics for the fingers, and learning music theory. Combined these elements make playing the guitar feel more natural, and more fun than site reading out of a Mel Bay book. He always follows up on previous lessons by quizzing you on previous material. Jimmy's a great teacher and I'd recommend him for all ages and all experience levels."
