We use Mrs. Riccobono as a clinician and coach at our school and she does a fantastic job!
Erinn
Jeanmarie is a wonderful clarinet teacher! I took lessons with her at Bay View Music Festival, and I also had her as a chamber coach there. She's very supportive and gave me lots of fresh ideas that have greatly helped my playing. She's also one of the nicest people you'll ever meet - I highly recommend her!

FUN!!! Learning guitar should be fun! I teach electric and acoustic guitar in a fun way. The exercises that I have you do are not boring, they are actual songs that you get better and better at playing.
I mix up the lessons and your practice with a combination of scales that can turn into instant leads, cords and the combination of cords that make up a family called a "key". I teach a variety of strum and picking patterns and styles, from folk to reggae to rock. The latest thing in playing melodies is tablature, I teach that, but I also believe that you need to be able to play regular notes as well. Best of all, you do not have to be a great lead guitarist to be a star, and if you want to sing while you play I can definitely teach you that!

About Daniel

Mr. G goes over and above to help me pursue my interests. He helped me sing through a difficult time while my voice was changing. He supports me at performances and never fails to make me laugh. Working with him has been a fantastic experience and I feel that I have grown so much.

I got in touch with Daniel so I could get back in singing shape as an adult who had lapsed - a lot! He's friendly, kind, and patient, with a clear way of explaining technique that's really helped me get it. I've improved noticeably in a short amount of time!

You can do whatever you put your mind to if you follow my instruction and put in the work!

I can help you get where you need to be as a guitarist. I am a professional musician who has played the guitar for over 30 years. I studied music theory and "applied commercial music skills" with the world renowned guitarist Fred Benedetti at a college level.

I am also a singer/song writer/band leader and has a deep understanding of what it takes to play out in the world. I specialize in a range of genres from vintage style swing/jump blues to indie rock/punk.

I am a technique-focused teacher insofar as making sure any student of mine is avoiding bad and sometimes unhealthy habits in their playing. I do, however, try to find fun ways to work on technique, with the end goal being playing repertoire that is fun for the student. I believe technical exercises have their place in learning any instrument, but that it's important to spend the majority of your practice time on material which is ultimately enjoyable to play.

I do have certain sets of books I like to follow depending on the student's interests, but I am always happy to tweak the lesson plan to fit the student's needs.

About Joshua

Hi there! My name is Josh, and I'd love to be your guitar teacher! I've been playing guitar since I was eight, starting out playing rock and roll, then focusing on classical training for my college career. In both undergraduate and graduate school, I studied classical composition as a classical gui

Andrea
My son Jake wanted to learn some Boston songs that my husband always plays, and Josh was the perfect teacher for him! Jake had been playing 2 years when we found Josh. I was impressed by his ability to make stuff like technique and scales fun for students. Highly recommend!
Scott
My middle son took an interest in classical guitar and Josh was perfect to get him going. We bought the books recommended by Josh which gave my son the basics. Josh follows the pace of the student and was flexible when teaching from books.
Julie
I wanted to learn more than just the basic chords and Josh was a great teacher! He explains things in a way that's easy to understand. I took guitar lessons when I was little and he helped me to build on what I already knew. He also encouraged me to pick songs I wanted to learn rather than stick to a book. Scheduling was easy and he's really responsive to messages.

Fantastic first experience!"

A Little Bit of Country: Easy Classic Country Songs for Guitarists

If you're a fan of classic country music, you've come to the right place. Here, guitar teacher Willy M. shares his favorite classic country songs for guitarists... I grew up in the late '70s and early '80s in the rural Midwest when "Hee-Haw," a country television program, was something that everyone knew about. It was the Grand Ole Opry’s rendition of a high-theatrical experience, and a showcase for classic country artists to play their tunes. Willie Nelson, one of my favorite songwr …
