I teach from a variety of guitar methods and also help students learn and work out current and classic popular songs that I have written out for them or songs that the student may also suggest. I find that this approach inspires and motivates students while learning the
the fundamentals of the instrument.

Tom is an excellent teacher. He works great with my daughter. He is very talented and understands music. I highly recommend Tom.
Chris M.
Tom is a super nice guy with a great positive attitude and teaching style to match. He has lots of experience both playing and instructing. Two thumbs up!
Anya
Tom was absolutely fantastic. He seemed to be genuinely interested in my progress and just as excited as I was about me picking up the piano again - over 20 years since I’d last had lessons - which was an excellent motivator. I may have gone home and practices for a few hours. I look forward to continuing my lessons with him.

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I teach every student the technical skills and applied theory necessary to work in any contemporary style on guitar. I use the "Be better than you have to be" approach. Want to be the best on a bad day? Be better than your chosen style requires. I studied classical and jazz in order to excel at rock, folk and blues.
You will learn to read music and charts for guitar, as well as movable scale patterns, movable chord forms, and how to apply it all to master the fretboard.
Have you hit a road block? I can help. Are you brand new and want to be sure you understand the instrument completely? I can help.

I can walk you through the basics, from tuning to strumming your first open chords, and get you playing songs you love in no time! You'll learn strumming and picking techniques (including fingerpicking), barre chords, standard progressions, and basic soloing, as well. We'll also learn the basics of music theory, so that you understand how songs are constructed, so that you can run with your knowledge and write songs of your own!

About Pat

I'm a lifelong musician, with a foundation in classical piano, which I began studying at 4 years old. At 12, I performed at Carnegie Hall. But while I was studying piano, the music of the 60's and 70's was an ever-present influence, and I found myself drawn to the guitar. Players like Jimmy Page, Je

We start with the music that excites you. We learn to play it like a pro, then take it apart and study it from top to bottom.
You use some of what you learn and improvise or compose your own music. We record everything so you can share it with friends or reflect on it later. One song at a time, you master the guitar, learn how music works, and become capable of learning or creating any music you want to hear.

Sound like a lot? I'm here to guide you every step of the way- I make recommendations and design exercises for each student to help you bridge the gap between the music you want to make and your current skillset. Shoot me a message and we can get started!

About Ethan

My musical life started at the piano when I was four. I've spent the last five years helping students understand the sounds that speak to them and bring them into their own music-making. I spent my early years playing piano, then picked up the saxophone, which took me to Berklee College of Music,

I have studied saxophone, jazz piano/theory, and songwriting with Ethan for over 2 years, and he is the best music instructor I've ever had. He cares so much about his students and helps us thrive. Not only is Ethan my teacher, he is a friend and a mentor.

I first met Ethan through my school's jazz combo program, and my interest in music immediately grew in the presence of his friendly persona. Ethan organized life changing jam sessions and master classes that I will remember forever. His teaching approach is project based which gives his students something to walk away with. With his guidance, I have become a stronger musician and a wiser person. Thanks Ethan!
