Acoustic Guitar:
Acoustic guitar is such a great instrument for so many reasons. With my method, not only will the student learn the songs and styles they love, but they will become musicians while doing it.
So many guitarists feel limited, because they never learned the basics of notes, chords, technique, and theory. I will unlock the fingerboard and make learning music fun! Student will bring in songs they like to learn.

Karen was great!

This teacher misrepresented her ability to teach the C system chromatic button accordion. I don't believe that she has ever played one. I asked her before purchasing a set of classes if she knew this instrument and was competent to teach it, and she said she was.

She didn't have one, so she could never demonstrate anything I asked about. She didn't know the key layout. She didn't know the conventions for numbering fingers. She didn't know the basic home key scale pattern.

I waited until I'd finished four classes with my new teacher before writing this so I'd have a good basis for comparison. He is immensely better at teaching this than she was. It further convinced me that she never should have represented herself as competent to teach this particular instrument.

Jack is an incredible teacher! I was nervous and a little self conscious about my basic guitar playing skills in the beginning but he made me feel extremely comfortable and built my confidence in my skills. He refined my basics and would emphasize focus on me enjoying my playing but also enjoying the theoretical knowledge. He has an incredible sense of humor so the class environment was always positive and encouraging. Highly recommend Jack!
Brandon
Jack is a great guitarist and a wonderful teacher. Learned a lot from him!
Jae
There is something about self doubt that really makes it hard to learn a new instrument, especially when you’re not a middler schooler. As a current college student in Boston, I’ve always wanted to learn how to play guitar (something about my ukulele just bored me at this point). When I looked for guitar clubs on campus, it turned out that every other member not only knew how to play guitar but also was really good at it too. Bummed there wasn’t a “beginner guitar newbie club” on campus, I turned to guitar schools around Boston. A lot of them dumbed down the guitar to a point where it felt condescending (ex: making up names for strings instead of learning notes). Discouraged, I searched online and happened upon Jack! His Scottish accent wasn’t the only thing that caught my attention, this guy can really shred! He manages to make you feel comfortable and never makes me feel dumb when I make a mistake or ask a question. He is the first guitar teacher in Boston, anyway, to actually show me how to be comfortable and confident with my instrument, even from the beginning.

Online Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Guitar is the first instrument I learned to play starting from when I was 12 years old. I have taught many students how to play guitar from the ground up!

My teaching method starts with what you want to learn to play. That's what it is all about, right? Learning the songs you want to play becomes a vehicle for knowing more about guitar.

For beginning guitar, it is best if we can meet in person so I can see your hand position and posture in detail.

My speciality is helping young children learn the basics of this instrument! To see them strum their first E chord is fantastic :). I do suggest a half-size guitar for students nine and younger.

Would not recommend. Has some knowledge but a really bad character and will put you down as a person. If you aren’t a favorite, you’re ranked least important and more likely to be put down. A really bad experience and person.

Miriam is an excellent musician, mentor, and person! She knows her craft extremely well and knows how to coach someone by offering critical feedback and encouragement. Miriam is the kindest and most compassionate person that you will ever meet. Taking vocal lessons with Miriam will make you a better singer and a better person. Thanks, Miriam!
Ethan
Miriam is by far the best singing instructor that I have ever had. She works with you so well to make sure that you find some sort of growth in your singing ability every time you meet with her. Totally Incredible!!

I was hesitant about taking lessons online but it worked out just fine.
Eric is extremely patient and knows how to play/teach about any song. I'm convinced he could teach any level player. As a beginner, I appreciate this.

"Eric is the real deal as a guitar teacher. I personally play the guitar myself, but as any parent knows when it comes to teaching your own child there is going to be some resistance no matter what! Lol. Eric is very well educated in music and has the rapport to teach beginners as well as advanced students. My son looks forward to his time with Eric and considers him a friend as well! In closing, if your looking for an instructor that has a solid music background that can channel that knowledge into your child or self, look no further!"

He does a great job of critiquing but also making the lesson fun! He tells me exactly what I need to do and the tools I need for the following lessons, so I always have a plan AND it's all in the comfort of my own home. I would highly recommend Steven, and if you're skeptical about taking an online lesson, don't be, because the attention Steven gives during lessons makes you feel like he's right there!
