Albino - I just wanted to say thanks again so much for everything you did for me, I'm having so much fun recording. I just finished up my first track and was able to include guitars, bass, piano, drum and vocals, I can't believe how quickly you taught me all of this stuff. This is a huge improvement from where I was a few months ago. Thank you again!!!
Franny
Albino is an amazing teacher and musician. He has the ability to inspire you musically and make you feel very comfortable while doing it. He has taught me many new approaches, tips, and tricks to music theory. He has helped me to be able to really understand why things are the way they are, and not just figure things out on paper like an equation. Definitely the best tutor I've ever had! I'd highly recommend him.

Bil is a great instructor. I was looking for an experienced Jazz pianist, as there are a lot of things about jazz you can only learn about someone extremely experienced. Bil doesn't disappoint- he explains things in a very intuitive and logical manner, on top of being extremely personable and enjoyable to learn from. I look forward to my future lessons with him.

A great introduction. My son is hooked, which is exactly what we are looking for.

Private Guitar Teacher

Hi! Thank you for your interest in studying with me.

My name is Elisa and I am a Berklee College of Music alumni with a Bachelor of Music in Guitar Performance and Jazz Composition, and a minor in Conducting—Contemporary Track—. I have played guitar for 15 years, taught guitar and music lessons for over 5 years, and have a 10+ years experience with live performance in different genres (rock, jazz, pop and musical theatre).

I enjoy teaching, in all its aspects. I like giving lessons and advice, motivating and helping students so that they can get the most out of a lesson, in a one on one as well as in a classroom environment. If I find myself unprepared in front of students’ questions, I do my best to provide a satisfactory answer. I like being challenged and conducting further research about what my students would like to know. I love working with people of all ages, from children to adults, and with different goals in music.

About Elisa

Elisa is a guitarist, composer, arranger and conductor based in Boston, MA. Despite not being born in a family of musicians, Elisa's musical talent manifested itself since she was a little girl. During preschool and elementary school, her natural inclination towards music was evident in her musi

My name is Peter Gardner, and I am an English professor and professional clarinetist, teaching at Berklee College of Music. Elisa was one of our English tutors in the Liberal Arts Department at the college for four years, and she was one of the most engaging and productive tutors I have supervised in my 35 years running the tutoring program. She is bright, conscientious, gregarious, and humorous and, simply, a wonderful person to be around. She is a natural born teacher and connects very well with her students, both on a personal and academic level. I also know her to be an excellent musician, with an extensive background in both performing and teaching, and well-versed in all styles of guitar playing. I cannot speak highly enough about Elisa as a person, a teacher, and an artist. I recommend her to you, at whatever level you're at, as much as I have ever recommended anyone!

Best,

Peter Gardner

"Jeff is a great teacher who helps you learn the guitar step-by-step with lots of great tips!

I started to learn guitar from Jeff when I was in the 5th grade and I have never regretted it. He has helped me improve so much that I can now solo off of songs and dissect popular songs to learn by myself. It's always so fun to play guitar with him, and he is always encouraging. He also teaches at my home which is really convenient. I always look forward to lessons to show him how I have improved. He is also really funny and entertaining. He has a lot of knowledge on guitar and music in general. Guitar has been a big part of my life and so has Jeff. I owe him all my thanks for teaching me how to enjoy and utilize the guitar beyond just learning chords and progressions."

Guitar Lessons in Malden, MA

By David H. – Malden Guitar Teacher

My name is David, and I am a Boston-based teacher of the guitar, bass, and ukulele, as well as a semi-professional carpenter and luthier. The Boston area is a true melting pot of all types of people, and it is an inspirational place to play and teach guitar. It is home to some of the best music schools in the world, such as Berklee (where I studied for four years), the New England Conservatory and the Boston Conservatory. The city also has some gorgeous concert halls and theaters, such as The Orpheum, The Wilbur, The Charles Playhouse (home of the Blue Man Group), The Somerville Theatre, Symphony Hall, the Boston Opera House and many others. So, if you’re interested in taking guitar lessons in Malden, MA, read on for some tips on things to do and see as a musician in the Boston area!

Practice Tips: When just starting out your bass or guitar lessons in Malden, a key thing to remember is to not be discouraged by the initial discomfort in contorting your fingers into funny chord shapes that you have never demanded from them before. This is the biggest hurdle of all - the physical development. Most people understand where they are supposed to put their fingers, but just have a hard time pressing hard enough.

I recommend making practice routines, like going to the gym, and sticking to them. Once you develop your finger strength, the real fun and satisfaction begins. You want to learn the tedious things with your favorite songs as a medium. This way, you can learn theory and technique while playing music from your favorite artists to keep yourself interested.

Additionally, I don’t recommend getting too hung up on reading music for beginner guitar students. You can learn a lot of what you need to know without standard notation. This is an important skill to have, but technique and knowing a lot of chords and a mental map of the fretboard is more important, at least in the beginning.

Local Venues: The Boston area is home to over seventy colleges and universities, which contribute to a diverse culture and great nightlife. Once you are on your way in your guitar lessons in Malden, be sure to check out some amazing local talent at some of the many venues in the Boston area:

The Middle East is a venue, nightclub and restaurant just across the Charles River in Central Square (Cambridge), nestled between MIT and Harvard University. It hosts shows from national touring bands as well as lesser-known people, such as myself. http://mideastoffers.com/me/

Another amazing local secret is Wally’s Café on Mass Ave; a little hole-in-the-wall jazz club which has been successfully running since the fifties. It has some of the best local jazz, funk, and blues bands, as well as a weekly open jam (not for beginners to play in, but a great inspiration to practice!). http://www.wallyscafe.com/

Thirdly, a favorite hot spot of mine is the Lizard Lounge in Cambridge, which has Boston’s most popular open mic every Monday (requires a sign-up weeks or months in advance). I usually go not to play, but just to listen to the eclectic variety of indie rock, folk, blues, jazz, hip-hop and everything in between. It costs only five bucks, and the place goes dead silent (in a good way) for the performers. It is the most beautiful thing you’ve ever heard. http://lizardloungeclub.com

Lastly, you can find out more about the Boston music scene at the following website: http://www.boston.com/entertainment/music

Best of luck in your guitar lessons in Malden, and enjoy all that the Boston area has to offer to you as a budding student of guitar!
