It was truly a pleasure meeting Concetta for my first ever violin lesson. It is difficult to learn anything at the age 40, specially a musical instrument, but she made it comfortable and easy to understand. She's extremely patient a key quality when teaching a subject such a music to anyone. I would say, give her teaching style a try and you won't regret it. Very knowledgeable indeed.

I have extensive experience teaching and playing across many styles including jazz, classical, R&B, funk, rock, folk, improvised music, and more. I approach each student as an individual with their own goals, needs, experience level, and learning style to create a specialized curriculum that helps propel the student towards their best self and enjoy the process at the same time.

About Drew
Aside from an extensive amount of personal and teaching experience in all of these subjects, I genuinely love connecting with students through music to help them reach their personal goals. I believe that my approach towards learning music is deeply rewarding, engaging, and aids brain development. Below is my bio which details my approach and teaching experience.

Drew received his Bachelors of Music in Jazz and Improvisational Music from the University of Nevada Reno and his Masters of Music in Contemporary Improvisation from New England Conservatory. He teaches guitar, piano, songwriting, and composition with an emphasis on intuitive learning, ear training, and music theory. His background includes jazz, classical, rock, blues, reggae, R&B, hip-hop, electronic music, and improvised music. As an educator he has eight years of experien
ce in private studio and has given workshops at the middle school, high school, and college level including his recent outreach work with the Boston Philharmonic to underfunded schools. Drew approaches each student as an individual with their own goals, needs, experience level, and learning style to create a specialized curriculum that helps propel the student towards their best self and enjoy the process at the same time.

· Classical Guitar · In studio
Was strictly interested in playing classical, nylon string guitar, and was a little nervous because Drew is very proficient and accomplished in Jazz and Improvisational guitar, which is a little outside of my interests.

Drew does a fantastic job at teaching classical guitar, and at the same time introduced me to the more modern world of improvisation guitar, which I now enjoy a lot more than before.

I'd highly recommend Drew if someone is interested in a well rounded musical education that goes beyond just playing an instrument. I not only learned a lot of guitar, but feel I'm an all around better musician after taking lessons with Drew

My goal is to encourage more people to develop a love of music. That means helping them play the music they want to play. It means learning how to make practicing fun. My lessons aren't just about how to play guitar, but also about learning how a guitar works. how they're built, so that as you get better and start being more discerning with what you play on, you know what you're looking at in a shop. My goal is to lay a solid foundation for you to build upon technically and artistically.

About Christopher
I've been making music for years which started with playing piano and trumpet in my early years and eventually moving more into singing and the guitar as time went on. I play my own music in an acoustic rock band and some harder stuff with a rock band that has been touring around more this past summer. I received a degree from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts and I'm excited to pass on what I've learned. The most important thing about making music for me is not just fancy licks and looking cool. I want to help people express themselves and feel stronger through music.
