Max is Berklee College of Music graduate in guitar & mandolin performance.

Lessons are tailored to your level and goals. We can focus on tunes you want to play, incorporating reading music, ear training and theory.

Learn by tab, music or by ear.Many students prefer to have notes or tab in front of them. I will provide the notes/tabs of songs we learn.

I want all students to come away from their lessons feeling successful.

Max is a superb guitar instructor! Each of his lessons are tailored to the individual needs and wants of his students. Tablatures are prepared in advance and available when you arrive at your next session. Strong emphasis is placed on playing technique, and Max is always willing to play each phrase or passage at a slower speed. For my money, there is no better guitar teacher, than Max.
