Billerica, MA
View Full Profile

Experienced guitar teacher, available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of ear training, music application, and theory skills. The books and styles that I use to teach with are a case-by-case thing, tailored to the student.

About Jacob
I am a singer/songwriter with a broad range of musical styles, and an extensive background in performing and teaching. I teach and apply music theory skills into guitar playing to produce the most well-rounded students that I am able, forming the line between someone who plays an instrument- and a musician. Lessons are for all levels of musicians, and centered around what the student is interested in.
I started playing guitar when I was seven, quickly fell in love and continued to grow. I went on to acquire sponsorship from Alpha Omega music studios and Moniker Guitars. I then began to lead a worship team for students at a local church.
Now I am attending Berklee, and dedicated to teaching - loving working with students to further skills and techniques to apply to any musical situation. My goal is to keep lessons upbeat and fun f
or students while still achieving great strides in instrument proficiency.

I have been teaching guitar for 1 year and my students have been able to create and write their own songs, play in bands, and perform out. Within the first few lessons, you will be able to learn how to form and learn chord names and as time goes on you will be able to play full songs. I specialize in genres such as pop/rock/folk and provide beginner level books for students to work on. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and cannot wait to meet you!

Berklee graduate devoted to helping you make progress, whether it is a song you want to master, a new technique or simply the basics.

About Guilherme
Hello! Let's make music! I am a recent graduate of Berklee, where I earned my degree in both Jazz Composition and Guitar Performance. Whether you've just picked up the guitar or you are looking to explore a new style, I enjoy motivating my students to learn. Growing up in Brazil, I have a strong background in Samba, Bossa nova and other Latin styles such as Flamenco. With the opportunity to study at Berklee, I took full advantage of studying under renown professors of Jazz and Blues. I enjoy transferring this enthusiasm for music to my students, guiding them toward their goals and having fun along the way. I look forward to hearing from you!
I also perform regularly with my duo.

Guilherme has been extremely flexible and understanding with my 16 year old son. My son loves going to his lesson and knows he needs to practice a bit more at home.
I strongly recommend Guilherme!

I've taken about 10 flamenco (and some bossa nova) guitar lessons with Guilherme so far. I had taken flamenco lessons in the past with other instructors, but this is the first time I've actually made progress. He's done a great job of creating a lesson plan and teaching a very technical style, while keeping it fun and exciting. I really look forward to my lessons every week, which is a credit to Guilherme's ability to balance method with fun. If you're at all interested in latin styles or jazz, I very highly recommend Guilherme!

My focus as a guitar teacher is to give you the tools that can help you be the musician you want to be. I'm dedicated to ensuring that what you learn in my lessons will go towards practical use and composing music that is meaningful to you.

About Kian
Hi! I'm a Boston-based composer, performer and educator from Gibraltar whose recent concert works explore the intersections of traditional and graphic notations, indeterminacy (improvisation) and colour.

I began playing guitar at the age of 12 and developed a quick affinity towards music. In 2014 I was accepted to Berklee college of music and graduated with a degree in Composition in 2018. During my time at Berklee I studied guitar with Freddie Bryant and Rick Peckham, composition with Andrew List, Marti Epstein and Tamar Diesendruck and ensemble work with Simon Shaheen and Ned Rothenberg. As an active member of the Berklee community I was a peer advisor and orientation leader, member and later co-chairperson of SAAVE (student allies in anti-violence education) and a peer health educator at the Berklee Health and Wellness department.
In 2018, due to my dedication to social justice and health, I received the Berklee Health and Wellness leadership award.

I began composing for guitar in 2014 and later started writing for chamber ensembles and orchestra. My concert works have been performed and workshopped by a variety of performers at Berklee College of Music as well as highly-established and reputable ensembles such as the MIVOS quartet, Loadbang and String noise.

In 2018, my composition “Consciousness” String Quartet No.1 (2017) recieved the Bill Maloof award from the Berklee Composition Department and was featured on the annual Professional Writing Departments CD.

I continue to reside in Boston, MA, pursuing teaching opportunities and continuing to perform and compose.

I have been playing and performing for over 30 years. I mainly play Bass, but I can also play Guitar and some Keys. I have played in many bands over the years and I'm currently playing in 4 bands now. I also occasionally do fill-ins. I have worked in recording studios in the past when playing with original bands and artists, and have a small home studio that I currently use for recording music when inspiration hits me.

I'm very flexible about how you may want to set up the lessons. Once I understand what you're looking to achieve, we can build a course of study that fits your schedule and goals. Let's chat and get you started playing music!

About Michael
I have been playing and performing for over 30 years. I mainly play Bass, but I can also play Guitar and some Keys. I have played in many bands over the years and I'm currently playing in 4 bands now around the Boston Metrowest area. I also occasionally do fill-ins. I have worked in recording studios in the past when playing with original bands and artists, and have a small home studio that I currently use for recording music when inspiration hits me.

I gave lessons many years ago after finishing music school and have been working as a Software Engineer by day and playing music at night ever since. I decided to start giving lessons again recently when I was playing a gig, and a guy asked me if he could record a video so he could use it to learn how to play the songs I was performing. I figured I should just offer to teach him with some
hands-on lessons. I really enjoyed doing it and so I wanted to offer lessons to others who might also be interested.

I'm very flexible about how you may want to set up the lessons. Once I understand what you're looking to achieve, we can build a course of study that fits your schedule and goals. Let's chat and get you started playing music!

About Nicholas R.

Allston, MA

My personal teaching philosophy is that music is a beautiful transcendental art form, and it's my job to find the student's connection to music and help them enjoy it to its fullest capacity. Whether it's a young beginner, old hobbyist, or aspiring professional I understand that everyone's learning process is unique and it's my job to find and nurture that.

I predominantly play jazz and have an extensive theory and composition background, so I can educate on many subjects. Some of my primary focuses are: technique, fretboard knowledge, chord vocabulary, sound/tone, articulation styles and personal stylistic choices, and many more.

About Nicholas
I have many years of teaching experience and can discuss a wide range of topics. While I am predominantly a guitar player, I have experience with and have often enjoyed teaching musical/compositional concepts as well as improvisational tools and music theory to other instruments.
