Private Guitar Teacher

As a teacher I am very patient with students and enjoy helping them reach their own musical goals. I emphasize knowing the basics and encourage students to study music theory and basic reading of standard notation. I always ask my students to bring in songs they want to learn as a way to motivate them to practice more.

*** Lesson Details ***
GUITAR: I expect my students to practice at least 5 days a week for at least a 1/2 hour per day. I use the Suzuki method for young students ages 8 to10. We continue learning basic folk songs by ear and then start reading standard notation and basic theory within 6 to 8 months along with classical guitar duets. For older students I use the Hal Leonard guitar method. After 3 months of lessons students can expect to know the basic open position chords and strum patterns to some basic songs as well as some famous guitar riffs and also be able to read some basic melodies in standard notation. After 6 months students will be able to play a 12 bar ...

Robert is a wonderful balance between push and patient support--an important balance in learning practice and process. He's musically knowledgeable and has great resources for guitar techniques and theory. It's thrilling for me to settle into the pleasure of guitar, for me, tenor guitar.

I've been taking lessons from Rob for 2 years now. He is a great teacher, classically trained, but very knowledgeable in all genres. I have learned a great deal and being taught the correct way. He pushes you to do better each and every week.

I take what I’ve learned from classrooms and stages across the United States and give you the fast track. Although I have a large library of songbooks and theory books, I also have perfect pitch, a skill that allows me to write down the notes as I listen to a song for the first time. This allows us to start playing your requests right away.

My father was a professional guitarist. I grew up with the sounds of music in my house. I credit this environment for helping me understand music in a way that would be near impossible if I had any other way. I hold a bachelors degree in music performance from the University of Southern Maine. I

About Kevin

I truly enjoy teaching. I've taught in the public school classroom for 11 years. Teaching music is so so much FUN! And it should be fun for the students to learn. When I'm teaching I tell all my students that if they don't enjoy and smile about something, then we need to change something.

Kevin is a great teacher - he has brought out the drummer in my 2nd grader, and he has been able to do this through Zoom, not even face to face. Highly recommended!
Kristin
Kevin is an enthusiastic and professional teacher! He has built up my son's confidence, and given him opportunities to perform and hone his percussion skills. I highly recommend Kevin!
Aidan
I was out of town when my 15-year old son had his lesson with Kevin, so I sent a text to my son to find out how it went. "He is the best guitar teacher ever!!" my son replied. I think that says it all.

"Trevor is an amazing teacher. He is one of the best teachers I have come across for music, and I've had several. He has a near encyclopedic knowledge on almost all things music from composition to theory with a genuine interest in the material as well as teaching it. He is extremely patient, friendly, and kind of a nerd on several fronts, in the best, most awesome way possible I mean. If you want a truly comprehensive understanding of music from someone who knows what he is talking about and is fun to learn from, I'd say go with Trevor."

"What a great teacher

Raymond has taken his time with my daughter Paige who is 14 and is very patient with her. He will let her know where she is slacking and also what she is doing okay. For a beginer,Paige has come a long way on only 6 lessons. Raymond has nerves of steel because I know what its like dealing with teenagers. We thank you for all of your hard work and hospitality.

"I took lessons from Greg when I was much younger say 12-13 for a year or more. He taught me a lot and had me playing guitar really fast, I always tried to do what he asked and he never ever got frustrated if I did it wrong or couldn't play what we were learning right away correctly!. Also all of what he taught me stayed in my head all these years some how and I kinda progressively got better and better!. I'm pretty happy with my playing and a lot of others are to!. Greg has something special about his students and teaching them to play the guitar correctly no matter what or how long it takes, he cares about you as a student. You get out what you put in ,but be patient cause it also takes time. But you'll see the difference later down the road that Greg was the right teacher for learning to play and the theory behind the guitar.....I recommend him as a great guitar teacher!. I myself take lessons from him again at the age of 38 , I was able to find him on Facebook after all these years and we do lessons via Skype, I'm a very happy student, very happy!. And I thank Greg Gladman for that!."
