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. I learned from a true master of jazz and contemporary music regarding compos

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!

I really like the approach that Guilherme has. He understands the philosophy of teaching music to children. My son is amazed by his technique.
Luke
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!
Heath
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 first lesson with Mat and he was very professional, friendly, informative, and patient. I'm looking forward to our next lesson

Mathew is wonderful! My son loved his first lesson!
Shawn
Mathew has made learning fun and stress free for my son. Without Mat's patience and support I do not believe my son would be taking lessons for more than a couple of months much less a year later. My son looks forward to lessons, he trusts Mat, and considers Mat a friend. I can not praise Mat enough for all his contributions to my son's new skill and his part in the building of my son's self esteem!

"My son has been in lessons with Jordan for over 2 years now. It is his favorite hour of the week! He naturally enjoys the technical aspects of guitar but Jordan's ability to make him feel confident and love the music that their learning has been my favorite part of the time we spend with Jordan each week. "He's just cool." -my 11 y/o son. Most importantly, we value that our family shares an eternal perspective with Jordan and my son is now practicing on Sunday nights with the 5th grade worship team at our church. We could not be more pleased with Jordan as our teacher."

"Nairobi has been a great instructor. He does not use the "one size fits all approach", but rather will customize the instruction to what you want. Accordingly, students will remain interested and get more out of it when the curriculum is of interest to them. I wanted to learn how to play the guitar, but wasn't interested in learning to read music. Nairobi also let's you choose what type and what specific songs you'd like to learn. Learning to play your favorite rock, pop or blues song versus Mary Had a Little Lamb- guess which one keeps you more motivated and interested in learning how to play? Also, being able to have the lesson in the privacy of your own home is great. He makes learning to play the guitar fun. If you put the work in you'll be playing in no time."
