About Chase

I started playing guitar when I was in the 8th grade. At that time I was into punk, and as I got older I moved into listening to classic rock, then blues, then all sorts of jazz and jam bands, and now classical and sacred art. And my playing of the guitar has following the same trajectory: I play

Chase and I did not work together long because of other commitments. However, in the short time we did work together I learned a lot. Chase is easy going, highly skilled, very patient, and his teaching style is such that it fosters student confidence. I was really nervous at first, because I wasn't sure what to expect. Chase quickly made me feel at ease during the lesson. We only had half hour lessons, but that was definitely enough time to learn new materiel and make progress. I highly recommend him for guitar lessons.

My son is 7 and really seems to like Chase. He came well prepared and finally someone has started to teach him some rock songs .

An Excellent Teacher!

Our daughter Charis has taken lessons from Chase for over 2 years. From the first lesson, his patient demeanor put her completely at ease. During that time we have seen her understanding of music and her love for guitar continue to grow.

Chase has a unique way of challenging his students to stretch in their ability while simultaneously making it a great deal of fun. I would absolutely recommend him to both the new and seasoned student alike.

Chris C.
I took around 15 lessons for bass guitar with James and really enjoyed it. James was able to tailor the experience for what I wanted, which was heavy on music theory, but still made sure we applied the theory to the instrument. I had prior experience with some music theory and playing, but hadn't touched my bass in almost 10 years. James was able to figure out exactly where to pick up, provided great materials, and kept me engaged. James is very knowledgeable, a great player, and a cool cat.
Tom
James is a highly qualified instructor and was very thoughtful in answering my questions. I was impressed with the amount of resources he had on hand, such as worksheets, method books, sheet music, etc. I would definitely recommend James for anyone curious about learning music theory and/or the many instruments he plays.

Kept missing class without any heads up so I had to just wait around and hope he'll show up, ignored my calls and messages to reschedule, so I had to just get a refund from TakeLessons. As a teacher he is good, but very unprofessional behavior in terms of accountability and respect for students' time.

"My 17 year old son and I have been taking weekly in-home lessons with Chris for about 4 months now. Gotta say Chris is AWESOME. My son is picking it up super fast, he definitely has ADD - especially with music. Chris keeps right up, they are playing some Ed Sheeran, Eagles, Sam Hunt, Tyler Farr - all over the map and all both have a blast. I have been plugging along a little slower and Chris is very patient. We are working on some FGL, Parmalee, Logan Mize (Can't get away from a good time), Toby Kieth (Red Solo Cup), we even did a little Carol of the Bells around Christmas. I have a changing schedule and Chris is very accommodating - even up to last minute - which I really appreciate! IF you are looking for a flexible, dynamic, friendly, and fun instructor (his place / Skype/ your place) Chris is your man. Full Disclosure: I did not know Chris before I found him on TakeLessons. I am not receiving anything for this review. My son and I are simply big fans of Chris!"

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!
