His specialties include flatpicking and fingerpicking the acoustic guitar.

Great teacher! We were so happy to have found Alex.
Leander
Alex is a terrific instructor, who adjusts lessons based on what the student wants to accomplish. For example, my goals include learning the instruments (baritone uke in octave mandolin tuning and concert uke in mandolin tuning), fingerpicking, playing both melody lines and chords, being able to determine what chords to use without sheet music. So we work on music theory and ear training a lot, as well as learning tunes. Very good instructor who is both flexible and knowledgeable...highly recommend him to others.
Andrew K.
Energetic, patient,full of praise. Straightforward discussion of music theory which is very helpfull

Guitar lessons with me can be in whatever form you would like to learn. Music Theory, learning to play your favorite songs, learning how to play with musicians, learning how to find a band, learning how to record, learning how to perform in front of people, or any style of learning you want. It’s entirely up to you, my goal is helping you find yourself as an artist or find yourself something to pass the time. It’s up to you.

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Hello fellow music lover!

My name is Scott, and I'm a musician with 15+ years of performance experience. I've studied guitar 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 artist.

I love teaching because it allows me to share my love of music and help people grow creatively in the direction of their choice. My feeling is, if you're choosing to invest in your artistic development, it should be an enjoyable experience based around what you're interested in learning about. To that end, all of my lessons are customized to the tastes and preferences of each student. We'll identify the goals you'd like to work towards, the music you want to play and take concrete steps in line with your creative vision.

My areas of expertise include folk, blues, rock, soul, funk and pop music with particular interests in songwriting and improvisation. However, I'm ...

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 like to craft a lesson plan that revolves around the interest of the student. If you like country but not funk, we'll focus heavy on country and not do any funk. If you want to focus on theory, we will. If you don't want to learn "hot crossed buns" we won't. Let me know the music you like and what you want to accomplish and we can go from there!

About Ryan

Hello! My name is Ryan and I play guitar/sing/write/record with local alternative rock/jam band, Lunar Ticks. I also am a guitarist with the all improvised cover band, Fate Nite. I also book shows, produce a comedy show, started a podcast, write for a local music publication, have spoken at schools

I teach you to be a musician, not just an instrumentalist. There is a huge difference. I give you material to learn while doing my best to make it fun as well. I teach you the basics and build on that foundation. You can learn the material as fast or as slow as you want. However, it is not a canned approach because every student is unique and your learning styles reflect that. My goal is your success, truly!

About Jerry

My name is Jerry. I LOVE music and passing my knowledge on to others. I have played many different instruments in many different kinds of bands/groups. They all had one major thing in common, it was FUN! If you are not enjoying learning an instrument you won't want to learn. Lessons can be fun AND

Jerry is a wonderful instructor. I wasn’t sure how online lessons would go but they have been seamless and fun and my son is making progress with the bugle. I would highly recommend this format and this teacher. The convenience and quality of instruction are excellent. We are signing up for more lessons and may move on to another instrument once my son feels confident on the bugle.

You'll start playing your favorite songs on the first lesson. From there, we'll connect the dots between all these songs and you'll naturally begin to see patterns.

Playing songs that you love is very exciting, and by accomplishing this, you'll be eager to learn more each time. Unlike most guitar teachers, my lessons are not about memorizing and working on all the details - I don't want you to feel like you're doing work, you need to be excited if you want to stick with it!

Acoustic guitar is a great instrument to play with others, and thats exactly how it should be taught. Our lessons will include a lot of playing together, where you will learn how to take on the different roles of lead melody and rhythm/chords.

For those who want to sing their favorite songs (or write their own), I will teach you how to sing and play simultaneously, in a fun way that will give you the ability to learn any song on your own.

About Doug

If you want to confidently play to your favorite songs and have the time of your life doing it, I'm the right instructor for you. In short, my students think of playing guitar as a healthy addiction. Throughout my music career, I've realized the traditional teaching method is the main reaso

"I've been taking lessons with Jimmy for over a year now. He's a great instructor and really takes the time out to ensure I understand and grasp all the concepts he teaches. Learning in his studio has been fun and inspiring because I get to experience what it's like to record music. It's also a very useful in hearing myself recorded so I can play it back and see where I can improve. Jimmy is a great guy and a true professional. I would highly recommend taking lessons with him."
