Lessons with me...

I'm passionate about music and its many benefits, both academically, emotionally, and physically. I love to share my joy with my students in a fun, collaborative way that is professional and enjoyable. The pace is determined by the goals of the student, and materials are tailor-made to suit your preferences. Classical instruction is essential for proper technique, but branching out to Celtic fiddle or movie soundtracks is a definite option!

I recommend weekly lessons, and a minimum daily practice plan is required. Younger students should do 30-minute lessons, but around 10-years old, I require 45-60 minute lessons. Serious students preferred.

About James
Starting lessons can be an intimidating process for sure. Who's my teacher going to be? What will they have me do? What if I can't do what they teach me? How much lesson material am I going to have to keep up with each and every week?
My lessons are set up to suit everyone's needs and skill levels. We put you at ease from the first lesson and will build a program that fits your interests and will inspire you to want to learn more! My students make constant progress and have a lot of fun while doing it. I am very excited for what the future holds and will continue to inspire them to do great things. Many have moved on to become successful musicians and now have something they can enjoy for their lifetime. It gives me great pride and motivation to see the smiles and positive effect it has on each student and their families as they progre
ss and successfully perform throughout the years.

I took lessons from James for quite a while and he is great! He got me started as a kid and was great at getting me prepared for auditions when I was applying to colleges. I definitely recommend taking lessons from James!

I wish I was able to give James more stars. I took lessons from him since late middle school up until I graaduated high school. I actually switched over from another teacher, and I'm glad I did, otherwise I wouldn't have continued playing. Even though I don't play anymore, I can say that James was able to help me so much not only with the drumming basics, but with the percussion music I had all through high school. He's able to simplify the music, and he is one of the most patient people I know. He will continue to work on something with you until you get it no matter how long it takes. During lessons, James is also able to break it up with his sense of humor and just by making conversation with you. He does this to build a connection with his students and also to get a few laughs out of you. I remember many times when I was on the floor laughing at something he said, while still getting through the lesson material. It was an honor and a pleasure to take lessons from James, and now we are very good friends. He really is the best teacher in the business.

About Zak
I graduated with a BS in music from Skidmore College in 2002 and have been making my living as a professional musician ever since by touring internationally as a performer, making studio records, composing for film and television, and teaching. I am primarily a guitar player and a songwriter. I grew up playing drums and studied them well into college. I'm deeply influenced by the blues and country music, but I love anything that's good! I studied jazz and composition in school with a focus on improvisation. I wouldn't be half the musician I am today without the help of a few wonderful teachers. I think of them when I teach and do my best to inspire my students with the same joy and support that was offered to me.

I took guitar lessons with Zak for about 4 years and it was a great experience! I would pick a song to play, and as I learned the song he would teach me the scales that go with it. So I would learn the song and the music theory behind it, super cool. I also learned how to read sheet music from Zak. I enjoyed taking lessons from him!

About Mark
I am an active performer eager to teach organ, piano, voice, and general musicianship skills to youth and adults. Private lessons are given at Trinity Lutheran Church in Worcester. My students have gone on to undergraduate and graduate performance schools and hold full-time positions in churches, schools, and other performing organizations around the country. I believe music is not only an aesthetic pursuit, but also a primary way to develop one's sense of self-esteem, community, trust, openness, and character. Building skill as a musician exercises the brain, builds logic, and fosters discipline.

Members of Trinity Lutheran Church, Worcester get a discount of 50% off all lesson rates posted here on TakeLessons. Message me to recieve instructions on how to take advantage of these great rates.

Some teachers teach you how to read black dots on a page. Others help you to make music beyond the printed page. Having studied with Mark for a number of years, I can attest to Mark's ability not only as a fabulous musician himself, but as a teacher who helps others go "off the page" to discover the heart of musical expression. He is a gift!

Mark is a very gifted teacher, patient and eager to share his vast knowledge in a natural way that students respond well to. Takes time to explain subject material and reasons for teaching methods. He goes the extra mile and his passion for music is contagious and evident. He is an excellent teacher and we are lucky to have him.

Mark is an excellent educator whose instruction was always appropriate for my level, yet pushed me to greater heights. He provided me with the tools I needed to continue to develop as a musician and to build up my skills quickly. A loving, caring person, Mark cares about the whole student and I count the time spent with him as some of the best investment I've made in myself.

About Jay
I'm an award-winning guitarist with a Doctorate of Musical Arts (Guitar and Music Theory, University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, 2016), and a Masters in Classical Guitar Performance (University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, 2013). I've taught students of all ages and abilities at the University of Minnesota and at the Saint Paul Conservatory of Music.

My teaching philosophy is simple; each student is unique and each student requires a unique approach.

Using my experience and training in a range of teaching methods and schools of guitar playing, I take the time to get to know you, to learn what it is you want to play, to learn your music, and teach it to you in the way you will understand.

You should expect professional, personalized, and engaging lessons each week. And ask any of my other students: you'll have lots of fun too :)

Jay is fantastic. Not only is he a fun, outgoing person, he is absolutely brilliant on the guitar. I reached out to Jay because I wanted to improve my finger picking. He thoroughly taught me many different picking patterns that helped develop proper technique and accuracy. Because I taught myself to finger-pick on guitar my first 2 years of playing, I developed very bad habits. But with just 3 half-hour lessons with Jay, I've corrected these bad habits.

About Victoria
Hey, I have been playing the violin for 24 years and have loved teaching students along the way. I started teaching in high school, and have had several students since. Currently I am teaching a 4 year old and an 8 year old.

I am a licensed Special Education Teacher and have worked with students with various disabilities for the past 7 years. I am trained in applied behavior analysis and have used it in private and group settings.

Teaching music is a fantastic merge of my two passions in life. I perform regularly in my church congregation, and can also play the piano and trombone. I am currently learning how to play the organ. I have participated in several large orchestras and have taken private professional lessons for 20 of my 24 years of playing.

I have a very flexible and casual style of teaching. I get to know the student
and their (if applicable) parents, and then tailor lessons to fit their needs. That means I am willing to teach in my home, at your home, or online. I am also willing to use toys and games for very young students who are wiggly.

Perfect practice makes perfect playing. I believe in starting with form and care of the instrument, and then moving into theory right away. Unless their is a recital or perform coming up, I prefer to spend up to 20-40% of a lesson on music theory. This will ultimately lead to a more well rounded musician and allow for greater creativity as a mature musician.
