My name is Ricky Berger. I am here to be your guitar COACH. My ideal students (at any level) have a burning desire to play well. I leverage all available technologies (and teach you how to do that) to understand, study, and master the songs you want to play, the leads you want to play, and overall HOW to learn on your own.

I am the perfect coach for guitarists of any age who are "out there" performing. I will shorten the time you need to master your songs. For songs that you are already out there playing I coach you to play them better and better and better. I also teach improvisation at the beginner to master level.

I attended Berklee College of Music, was voted best jazz guitarist in Massachusetts; won awards from Berklee and UNH; was a member of Tempest & Draw the Line. I opened for Chicago in 2007. Examples of my playing are available upon request.
