About Aaron

I've been a full time professional musician for 13+ years and have toured all over the world performing with music icons like Chacka Khan, Beyonce, and many more. I have a lot of experience with many different styles of music and I love sharing this gift with anyone who's interested. My teaching philosophy is simple: Get students playing music! It's much easier to understand the nuts and bolts of music when put into the context of the music you like.

*** Lesson Details ***
I like to design a lesson plan for each individual student. The first lesson will begin with a basic assessment of skill level. We will discuss goals for the lessons then get down to work!
Students will learn:
1 Technique. the proper physicality to increase dexterity and avoid injury.
2 Music theory and comprehension. Usually through learning songs and analyzing

different concepts they incorporate
3 Ear-training/pitch recognition. Strengthening the ability to "pick up" new material more quickly and translate ones Ideas to the instrument.
4 Music appreciation/Musicality. Listening to new and different types of music focusing on the different elements that make up a great performer/performance.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music Studio: piano, stereo system, no drum there! room to sit for parents
A1: drum kit, whole performance set up with recording studio, room for parents to sit in on lesson

*** Travel Equipment ***
amplifiers, cd/mp3 player

*** Specialties ***
ear training, most musical styles (pop/rock, r&b, reggae, jazz , world)

I was surprised at how easy it was to connect with Aaron. His diving right in was fun as we got into playing music from the first moment.

Aaron knows how to work with kids. After 30 minutes my 6 yo came out confident and ready to play!! He doesn’t realize that he still is terrible because he at least knows one chord!! Lol!

All levels and styles, tab or notation, "custom" teaching approach

About Glenn

Hi, I'm Glenn. Thank you for viewing my profile. I've been teaching students for over 20 years, playing all styles and levels of music, from day-one beginners to seasoned pros seeking to sharpen their playing skills. I teach both traditional notation and tablature, writing my own teaching methods in both formats. I can transcribe any song or solo for you, and can arrange the music to fit your particular level of skill.

I earned a B.A. in Music Composition and an A.A. in music theory, and have worked as a professional musician since graduation. I play in a variety of bands that cover rock, jazz, surf, oldies, and country, and also write and arrange music for those bands as well as writing my own music that can be heard on my own YouTube channel.

The first song I learned to play was "Pipeline." I own and play several acoustic an

d electric guitars, as well as ukuleles, mandolins, bass guitars, and lap steel guitars. I'm personable and patient, and my lessons include songs, techniques, and instruction for improving your musical skills. I look forward to meeting you and having fun learning and playing music together.

-Glenn

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm big on teaching songs and techniques learned through scales and chords, which will enable you to improvise, solo, and write your own music. I can teach either traditional note reading or tablature, and can transcribe your favorite songs and solos. The lessons are fun, with new material to learn and play every week. I hope every time you pick up a guitar, it will be a creative experience!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Home studio: front room turned into music studio. recording gear, all instruments listed, additional seating for parents.

Morey's Music: Music store setting, small practice room, additional seating for parents.

*** Specialties ***
I've done it all-like theory, all styles of music.

- determining specific musical goals
- simple chords - strumming
- using the pick
- playing melodies

About Lucian

Lucian W is an alumnus of Berklee College of Music in Boston and former faculty member of the Hartford Conservatory. His vocal studies have been with Jacqueline Jarrett and David Baker in Connecticut, Jane Ellison at Loyola University in Montreal, noted operatic tenor Carmine Gagliardi in New York City, and Gina Moretta (whose students have included Gloria Estefan and Jon Secada) in Miami. He studied privately with world famous jazz guitarists George Benson and Chuck Wayne and has had a full time performing career of several decades as a guitarist, pianist, vocalist, bassist, arranger and orchestra leader.
Lucian believes that by sharing his enjoyment of making music with his students, he can give them confidence in other areas. That is because, in order to make music, they must go through a process of physical discovery through pr

actice. They are then empowered by experiencing the connections between inspiration, work, and pleasure.
He performs, as a solo entertainer, an unusually wide ranging repertoire because of his versatility on guitar, piano, and vocals. Being an accomplished arranger with a vast library of charts also allows him to lead a ten piece orchestra as competently as a trio or quartet. He has performed extensively in New York, Chicago, Cape Cod, and Florida.

*** Lesson Details ***
I always try to make lessons as comfortable and enjoyable as possible yet challenging enough to maintain interest. I build lessons around the student's individual interests (specific songs or styles) so that he or she can learn the technical fundamentals in a relevant context.
My own curriculum is supplemented by the following:
Guitar: Hal Leonard Guitar Method, Aaron Shearer Classical Guitar Method
Piano: Alfred's Basic Piano Course , John W. Schaum Piano Course
Voice: Jeffrey Allen's Secrets of Singing, Nicola Vaccai Practical Method

*** Studio Equipment ***
Hardman baby grand acoustic piano
OptimusMD1600 electronic keyboard
Crate TX50D guitar amplifer

*** Specialties ***
- Singing lesson time is generally divided 50/50 between voice building and repertoire. I accompany vocalists on both piano and guitar, teaching the melody notes as they are sung along with the piano. Then, once the melody is learned, I often switch to the guitar with just chordal backing. The acoustic guitar is also softer than the piano and lets the singer hear their own voice better. For voice building, I use my own concepts plus approaches of famous voice teachers like Jeffrey Allen, Seth Riggs, and Anthony Frissel.
- I am very experienced performing all styles of guitar and can cater to the student's specific area of interest, whether it be rock, folk, classical, or jazz.
- With piano, I work on fundamentals of reading and technique. Learning basic harmony and chord construction starting with triads (3 note chords), the student can soon read single stave lead sheets (a form of music notation widely utilized by professional musicians) as well as the grand staff. This approach trains the ear and makes learning how to play popular songs much easier.

I provide training in all styles of guitar, from classical to rock and everything in between.

About Blake

A job provides money. A career provides income over a longer term. But, guitar...guitar is part of who I am.

My passion for guitar and music has been alive as long as I can remember. Don't get me wrong, guitar and I had our ups and downs. Serious issues! At times guitar was stubborn and difficult. In fact, while attending the American Conservatory of Music in Chicago on the Presidential Scholarship in Classical Guitar Performance, there were days when I considered ending my relationship with guitar. But, I stayed with guitar. With dedication to our relationship and a lot of work, we are still together and happier than ever. And, here to help you work on your relationship with your guitar.

Experienced guitar teacher of 7 years! My lesson plan is simple: I incorporate a wide variety of guitar-method books + use my favorite material from each of them. I take the time to get to know the student...what kind of music he/she likes... what genre they're into. Deconstructing songs (chords, strum-patterns, etc) is always recommended, as well as delving into multiple styles + genres. I often incorporate backing tracks as the student is playing to emphasize rhythm + timing.

The time devoted to each portion of the lesson is totally adjustable. You will learn what you want to learn at your own pace.

I could not ask for more in a teacher. Ryan is amazing in every way. He has been teaching my 4 year old son the drums for nearly a year. When my son started lessons, he was actually below the minimum age for students, but he shared a passion for music that Ryan was willing to cultivate and be patient with.

Ryan is versatile in his teaching methods, creative, open, patient. Teaching a young student, Ryan adjusted to teaching music reading fundamentals with colors and shapes. He also figured out ways to correct, critique and build all the while building a young child's confidence.

Ryan provides a written evaluation of our son annually and has him prepare for two public recitals a year. Ryan integrates modern technology into the lessons to quickly provide feedback and create customized beats and tempos to practice to.

Above all, Ryan smiles and laughs. He makes every lesson pleasant and we treasure him, truly.

I am able to teach multiple styles of music at all levels of proficiency to students of all ages. I tend to tailor the lesson to what each individual student is interested in learning instead of force feeding the same dry, tedious curriculum from a text book to everyone. It is my belief that lessons should be enjoyable and entertaining as well as educational if one expects to maintain a high level of interest!

About Caleb

I have been playing music since the age of six. I was raised strictly on classical piano and voice lessons until I picked up the guitar just before the age of ten. By my senior year of high school I had learned how to play bass and drums, was writing and recording my own material, and had formed my own band, which is now called Athanasia. After passing around my demos on the Sunset Strip, I managed to land an audition with the then-forming band Five Finger Death Punch and got the gig on the spot. I played with the band for two years and ultimately earned two gold and one platinum record for my work writing, playing and engineering on their first two albums. As a result I have since been hired by numerous acts worldwide to produce, engineer and mix their records at my studio Nightmare Sound and have gained enough exposure as a musician to

be hired by several bands as a session player on numerous international tours. ​

I am a songwriter and guitar player, performing in two bands around Boston. I play both acoustic and electric guitar, mostly in pop/rock/blues styles.

A graduate of Berklee College of Music, I have a good foundation of music theory, and try to incorporate this knowledge together with instrumental studies. I am a current Guitar Instructor at a local music school.

About Claire

2 decades of playing experience, I studied classical violin growing up and began teaching my first student at the age of 16 - I have been teaching violin to students of all ages for over 10 years of all levels and styles.

I completed all the ABRSM exams and earned an ATCL diploma from Trinity College in Classical Violin Performance.

I perform both classical and electric violin, occasionally solo, but more commonly in rock bands, quartets, orchestras and recording sessions all across Asia and America. I am able to perform and teach in varying styles and genres.

In 2013, I moved to Boston to attend Berklee College of Music, where I studied Jazz, bluegrass, gypsy jazz and middle eastern violin.

A multi-instrumentalist, I also play and teach the electric guitar, acoustic guitar and piano.

I also produce and engineer music, recording in

dependent artists and bands based out of Boston.

I presently write and perform in two bands, an indie rock project called Paper Citizen and pop/HipHop group called Mad Yonder.

I teach privately in my studio in Palms, as well as at a music studio in West LA. I also travel to student’s homes.

I love playing music and I always hope to inspire a similar level of interest and enthusiasm with my students by exploring different styles of music - through a combination of learning songs, improvisation/creation and technique.

I work hard to help you achieve your goals and most importantly, get you playing with confidence!

"Don is a fantastic teacher, and not just for beginners but for experienced players as well!
I've been playing guitar for about 20 years, but haven't take
n any formal lessons in the past 15 of those. I felt like I was in a rut with my playing so I started taking lessons with Don a few months ago. He was able to immediately help me improve my technique and help me correct some inefficiencies that I didn't even notice I was doing. Don has a great way of showing that there are multiple ways to play the instrument and not one specific "right" and "wrong" way.
I feel like I've made more progress in the last 4 months than I had in years."

3 Things Guitarists Must Practice Every Day

By Megan L.

  With so much music in the world to play, how do you figure out how to practice guitar? Guitar teacher Jack C. breaks it down to the basics... One of the most common questions I'm asked by students, whether they are total beginners, or seasoned veterans who have been playing for more than ten years, is: "How exactly should I practice guitar in order to get the most benefit from my time?" As my explanation, I always like to break down guitar knowledge in three basic categories. 1. Techni …
