Neguine is a great teacher she's patient and very understanding I have my second class with her coming up and I can't wait
Sohan
Neguine was great. Patient and easy-going. My son enjoyed the lesson and looks forward to the next one.
Matthew
Neguine teaches piano to my two children, ages 8 and 6, and she’s been wonderful. She comes to our house and immediately the house is a calm friendly place to learn music. She’s patient with my kids who love piano but are still little, and she has a good sense of humor when they want to try something a little quirky. They also have been making great strides with sightreading, and their eagerness to learn more has only increased. Neguine also does not rush the kids: If a child needs to repeat part of a lesson for another week as she is good about making sure kids reinforce what they’re learning, which is something I appreciate, and my kids have learned to appreciate that too. I highly recommend her!

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Acoustic Guitar:
Acoustic guitar is such a great instrument for so many reasons. With my method, not only will the student learn the songs and styles they love, but they will become musicians while doing it.
So many guitarists feel limited, because they never learned the basics of notes, chords, technique, and theory. I will unlock the fingerboard and make learning music fun! Student will bring in songs they like to learn.

About Karen

Hi! My name is Karen D. I’ve had the pleasure of performing, singing, writing, and recording since I was seven years old. Besides being an Honor Graduate of Berklee School of Music, I have been a lifelong student of the international world-renowned instructors Dante Pavone and Charlie Banacos.

Karen obviously loves the piano & guitar. She’s probably an excellent teacher for those instruments. Why do I say that? That’s what she talked about! She spent half my lesson trying to convince me to learn one of those instruments. Could work on listening skills! Not even sure if she owns a set of bongos herself. Didn’t start teaching me anything until last 10 min & then I had to leave early anyway. So 50 min out of 60 and about 5 I actually learned a few things I could have been practicing for at least 30 min of class. Use her if you want to learn something else other than bongos.
John J Conlon
Ms. Karen did a pretty good job, she had ideas for the lesson and provided ideas for the next lesson. She went out of her way to help me with this new idea---------"music" and "reading music." If there was any short fall in the lesson it was on my side and my preparation failings. I have no problem recommending Ms. Karen to others. Regards, JC
Troy W.
Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!

Most times we miss the ultimate goal of learning, which is to master how to do it yourself. Hi, I am Victor and i have been teaching the guitar for over 20 years even before i graduated from Berklee college of music. I teach all popular styles of guitar playing and i also teach you how to master the habit of figuring things out by yourself because i believe that is the ultimate goal of learning.

About Victor

I am a professional guitarist, songwriter, and recording artist and music producer. I have toured around the world and shared the stage with a lot of popular artists. I graduated from Berklee college of music with a degree in Music production and audio engineering and electives on acoustic guitar.

Mr. Tarantola has taught my three kids to play piano and to read music. Their confidence in their music abilities has grown over the years as they continue to learn. The skills they learned with Mr. Tarantola has helped them in school music, band and in learning new instruments such as drum set and clarinet. Mr. Tarantola has the ability and personality to teach all ages including new beginners such as I - who began lessons in my 40's. Highly recommend!

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Voted the #1 Guitar Instructor on Boston's South Shore 9 years running from 2013 to 2021! All ages, levels, and genres. We can discuss guitar (I also teach bass, ukulele, sax, drums, and voice), recording, songwriting, performing, theory, and more. I teach people how to wear all the hats and how to become successful in all areas of music regardless of where you want to take it. If your goal is to be a full-time musician, great. If you just want to sit on your couch and play guitar while watching a baseball game, also great. We will learn a great deal during our lesson time, but we'll also have a great deal of fun. I know how to keep a good balance.

The best part about what I do is the ability to share the knowledge I've learned over the years and pass along the traditions deeply embedded within our art.

"Ahmad is a fantastic instructor. He begins work by teaching proper technique with the type of music the student is interested in and goes from. He can work with interests from punk rock to classical, electric to acoustic, no theory to complex music theory. A very talented musician and an excellent, encouraging, patient instructor. My son was a music novice with an intense desire to learn and practice (2-4 hours a day). In just 18 months he advanced his music theory knowledge and skills so far that he was able to easily improvise jazz solos. You can't go wrong working with Ahmad!"

"Joey and I were in the same composing class during undergrad and they kindly offered to teach me guitar. Since I was at a beginner level, I had to learn techniques and music theories from scratch. As a result of their teaching, I was able to progress efficiently and enjoyed their selection of practices. In addition to our guitar lessons, Joey also answers my questions outside of class times, which has been extremely helpful during the pandemic. Joey is a great teacher who's passionate about music and teaching. I strongly recommend Joey to anyone interested in taking guitar lessons."
