Chase and I worked together doing online lessons for guitar for a number of months. Chase is an incredible instructor. He helped me understand how to analyze and replicate my music tastes in a super effective way. His teachings on improvisation definitely brought out the best in my playing. I would highly recommend learning from Chase, whether you are a beginner or expert.
Nichole Coyne
Chase and I did not work together long because of other commitments. However, in the short time we did work together I learned a lot. Chase is easy going, highly skilled, very patient, and his teaching style is such that it fosters student confidence. I was really nervous at first, because I wasn't sure what to expect. Chase quickly made me feel at ease during the lesson. We only had half hour lessons, but that was definitely enough time to learn new materiel and make progress. I highly recommend him for guitar lessons.

My son is 7 and really seems to like Chase. He came well prepared and finally someone has started to teach him some rock songs .

Private Guitar Teacher

After earning my BA in Economics at Harvard, I followed my true passion and began playing music professionally. I'm a Berklee Music College Alumnus, and I did learn a lot there. My guitar heroes: Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jerry Garcia, Eric Clapton, Jimi Paige, John Lee Hooker, Duane Allman and Dickey Betts. I love all the inspired by the greats, but as well as listening to my favorite guitarists, I also listen to just about everything under the sun, and appreciate all types of music.

Joe is a great teacher and very accomplished guitar player. My skills have increased so dramatically over the last 18 months under his instruction that I'm kicking myself for not finding him sooner!

We generally focus on electric guitar - Blues, Rock and Jazz, but I know Joe teaches many acoustic-oriented clients as well. I highly recommend him.

"Hi. I left a prior review under acoustic guitar. Jeff teaches basically anything with strings and frets: Acoustic and Electric guitar and bass, in Rock, pop, Jazz, blues - you name it. Throw in Mandolin and Ukulele. I started playing guitar over 50 years ago - self taught with years of inactivity. When I retired 3 years ago or so my wife set me up for guitar lessons from Take Lessons, which led to Jeff. He was close by in Pasadena. He started with my flimsy knowledge of a few chords and moved along as I learned. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of all sorts of music, and can lead you down whatever path you chose. I started with basic rhythm guitar, classic rock, R & B, and at this point starting to work on the blues. I look forward to my weekly meetings with Jeff and highly recommend him."

Pros & Cons of Ovation Guitars

Ovation guitars are some of the most unique acoustic-electrics on the market. Designed by engineer Charles Kaman, who had previously worked designing helicopters, Ovations are hybrid guitars with a number of unconventional features, including shallow plastic backs, a built-in preamp, and (on some models) multiple soundholes. For this reason, they can be extremely polarizing. Guitarists tend to either love or hate them. Here are five reasons an Ovation guitar might be just the right thing for you …
