Private Guitar Teacher

After earning my BA in Economics at Harvard, I followed my true passion and began playing music professionally. I'm a Berklee Music College Alumnus, and I did learn a lot there. My guitar heroes: Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jerry Garcia, Eric Clapton, Jimi Paige, John Lee Hooker, Duane Allman and Dickey Betts. I love all the inspired by the greats, but as well as listening to my favorite guitarists, I also listen to just about everything under the sun, and appreciate all types of music.

I've been playing guitar and piano since I was little. I've been playing professionally since I was 16 and can cover many styles of music. Berklee College of Music graduate.
I really love teaching and try to incorporate new techniques and technologies into my lesson. It comes down to getting to know you and making the lessons relevant to you.

Mr. Tarantola has taught my three kids to play piano and to read music. Their confidence in their music abilities has grown over the years as they continue to learn. The skills they learned with Mr. Tarantola has helped them in school music, band and in learning new instruments such as drum set and clarinet. Mr. Tarantola has the ability and personality to teach all ages including new beginners such as I - who began lessons in my 40's. Highly recommend!

If you are new to the guitar, we will learn about the instrument itself. The different parts, and what they do. Also, how to care for it, so it will perform well for you. We will work hard to have you playing something as soon as possible, but not under pressure.

Soon after you begin, when things progress well, we can try learning a favorite song that you choose. We'll start out very basic. Probably just playing the tune one note at a time. Then we'll do the chords and then play it together.

My favorite part of teaching is seeing someone do well on their instrument. When the work pays off, and everything starts making sense to the student, and they are learning new things on their own.

"What can I say about Eric other than his the best Guitar teacher ever. He spots your weaknesses and fill in those blanks and all while learning to play songs you love. His method is much more intuitive than a classroom environment. Because of him my progression was fast and I can play a lot of songs and I have a deeper understanding of what it takes to play.

If your looking to start your journey on becoming a rock god you can't go wrong with him."
