Guitar:
Guitar is one of my favorite instrument to learn and I began playing at age seven. To become a well rounded musician and player I always start with basics. Hand and finger technique, notes, rhythms, chords, learning the fretboard, soloing and songs. If the student is only interested in learning songs I am happy to have them bring in anything they want to learn. For students who want more advanced technique I will teach them theory and how it relates.

I thought I wanted to take viola lessons. Then I read her website and I realized that she might be able to help me get my voice back! I thought there was no hope ever. She has been extremely generous with her time, and I haven't seen her yet, but I'm not buying the viola I was planning on buying. I play cello, and piano still, but I am going to see if she can help me with my voice. She sounds incredible. I never dreamed that I could even have HOPE like this!

Private Guitar Teacher

Hi there! I've been playing guitar since I was a teenager during the '70s. i play and teach rock,blues, jazz, fusion and read and compose music. What you can expect from me is a patient, serious, determined teacher who knows how to convey simple to complex technique and ability to those who are destined to be a student and musician. I can teach how to read, listen, interpret, improvise and evolve many musical skills.

About Gregg

I have had extensive jazz a rock studies from attending The Guitar Institute of Technology in Hollywood, to becoming George Russell's teaching assistant at The New England Conservatory of Music in Boston before he retired.

Gregg was my musical instructor during the early 1980ties. What I learned in a few lessons with him was more that I could have expected. I was primarily focused on percussion, of which his vast knowledge was highly dynamic. I learned about poly-rhythms, Indian ti-hies, and complex time signatures. He had available much reference material that he provided me. And over the years his musical insights have not only supplemented my inquiries, but made me a better musician and person. I hope you have a chance to study with Gregg, as you will be introduced to a new and better way of musicianship!

We have had 4 or 5 lessons now with Michael and with each one, my 9 year old son learns so much. I'm amazed at the pace at which he is moving; Michael had him playing a song after his first lesson. We sometimes do lessons at Michael's location and other times on Skype. My son really likes Michael and he wants to work hard and keep learning. I highly recommend guitar with Michael.

Beginner
I'm not currently taking beginner guitar students. Please refer to my studio partner Melissa:
https://takelessons.com/profile/melissa-m62

Intermediate
Learn about common variations of the tonalities you already know and start to venture into more complex rhythm ideas like polyrhythms. Also start to build the chops to learn parts more accurately when learning songs.

Advanced
Expand into more complex polyrhythms as well as asymmetrical meters. Also expand harmony and melody to include modes and chromaticism. Push your skills through original creations or original arrangements of existing material.

About Jesse

*Disclaimer* I'm currently not taking beginner students on voice/singing, guitar, bass, drums, piano, and ukulele. I highly recommend my studio partners Melissa though. Please check out her profile: https://takelessons.com/profile/melissa-m62 My Background I've been playing with classic

I cover a variety of ranges from: strictly rhythm, rhythm/lead, singer songwriter, strictly lead, acoustic, electric, production, recording..... you name it. My main priority is to get you to play the songs you want to play and sound the way you want to sound. I can teach all styles, however I tend to have a focus on Jazz, Rock, Funk, Jam, Pop, Blues, Neo-Soul, Bluegrass, and Country styles. Please send me a message if interested in booking or just curious to hear my style/approach to determine if we would be a good match.

Where to begin?

Mr. Burns has been instrumental (no pun intended), in the development of my guitar playing. I was already a professional studio musician when I encountered Jake. He was playing live at a venue I happened to walk into one evening. After the show, I approached Jake. We had a lengthy discussion on music philosophy, style, and feel.

It was apparent to me, that if I was serious about becoming familiar with more complicated styles of play, Jake would be the man to help me achieve my goals. Jake has been a wonderful friend & mentor. You will not find a more professional, efficient & fun instructor. Mr. Burns is warm & inviting! He will help you reach your goals at "any" level of musicianship.

"Eric is a really great teacher! He is very patient with my 13 year old daughter, a beginner, during her lessons and always seems very supportive and enthusiastic as she slowly progresses from week to week. He is an accomplished musician himself and plays along with her to show her how something should sound. Eric has a nice laid back attitude, is very on target with my daughter's musical tastes and he has a great personality! I am very happy with his teaching methods and we hope to continue her lessons with him for the next few years."
