About David

I am a 28 year old Massachusetts native and have been playing music since I was 8 years old, starting on the piano with a wonderful teacher in Beverly who also went to Berklee. I picked up the guitar and the bass in high school and got into rock, jazz and blues and haven't looked back. I received a bachelors degree from Berklee in 2012 with a major in Professional Music and minor in Music Education. I currently perform in and around Boston with several bands and also do custom guitar finishes, set-ups and modifications. Music study is great exercise for your brain. It works both the left and right hemispheres of the brain simultaneously because you are thinking both creatively and logically/mathematically at the same time. I am happy teaching students at any level, even ...

Dave is the man!!! He is an excellent teacher and curtails the lessons to what you want to learn and not just out of some book. He is also great at explaining the functions of the scales or chords you are learning as well as picking great songs in order to showcase those elements. If you are looking for a great guitar instructor, look no further, Dave is your guy! And his cat is pretty cool too...

Luckily I live very close to David's so it took me under 10 minutes to get to my lessons and he has parking. During each lesson I learned something different and left with cool new music (he has quality taste) or strumming techniques to practice at home. I liked his cat who had a hankering for affection and when David plays (He's terrific and a delight to listen to )

Dave is a wonderful teacher and musician! He does a great job of teaching you the music you want to play in combination with skills you need in order to improve. If you don't understand something, he'll explain it in different ways until you do. He's really nice and professional and has a great in home studio. I would highly recommend him!

Great Singing Experience

Shauna is a very talented singer/teacher. She focuses on her student and builds up self-awareness and singing confidence. The singing studio inside Shauna's house is sunny and cozy. It creates a positive atmosphere during lessons. Singing lessons with Shauna are very therapeutic. Shauna puts a great emphasis on not just singing, but singing with your heart and soul. I definitely recommend Shauna as a teacher to anyone who wants to take singing classes.

Shauna makes singing a fun experience. I enjoy the lessons and always leave them feeling energized. I never realized how much goes into using your voice effectively until I started taking lessons. I highly recommend her as a teacher.

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 ...

Aaron’s has been such a great teacher for my son – he is encouraging, optimistic, and a great listener. Aaron has been perceptive about what motivates Jasper and so he has found a great mix for each lesson of theory, technique, and fun exploration of new music concepts. He has adapted his style for where my son is on his learning journey so that he’s always moving forward and enjoying both practice and lesson time. From after the first day with Aaron he has always looked forward to going to his lessons. Since Aaron is an experienced and active professional musician, he shares what he knows is most important, practically and technically, across many music genres, and this suits my son’s curious nature. We feel really lucky to have found Aaron – he’s been positive, interesting, professional, friendly, and challenging. What else could you want in a teacher?

good all-around teacher

Aaron is a positive and inspiring instructor. He is very competent on the instrument (and I believe he is well versed in more than just bass guitar) and is a working musician. In my lessons he has attempted to guide me into territory I was unfamiliar with in a way that I can understand. Sometimes that has not been so easy, as with Modes, but he is willing to modify the lessons according to what I have wanted to learn and how easily I can absorb it. If there's something I'm not grasping, he tries to explain it in a different manner and with a little effort on my part, I can comprehend it. He definitely wants his students to learn and have fun, while also making it challenging.

About Nicole

I have a passion for music and people. Those two things together make lessons a fantastic outlet for both me and the student. I cater to each student's specific needs based on personality, age, ability, and mood. I have been teaching for over 10 years, and have completed both a Bachelors and Masters degree in Violin Performance from St. Olaf College and The Boston Conservatory. I am an active performer in the Boston area, and am always looking for new and interesting projects. I am a strong promoter of music being written by living composers, which is where a lot of my performing happens. A typical lesson starts with some fundamental work, whether it's open strings, scales or whatever. There is always a way to warm up - playing violin is an athletic skill, in my opinion. After that,

A wonderful and passionate teacher and mentor

Nicole is far more than a teacher, she is a role-model, a caring person, and a very well-trained musician. I've tried finding other places or teachers that I felt were at least adequate, but had no luck. After 4 years of private lessons, I have, without a doubt, improved far so much. She knows how to push a student to their full potential, even if they don't see it themselves.

If you're looking for someone who will be supportive and understanding but also productive, Nicole is your person. Her optimistic method of teaching really does impact and motivate you to practice, which is something that is sometimes hard for me to find.

About Tegan

I have taught private instruction and group instruction in such varied subjects as Music Theory/Ear Training, Woodwinds, and Crochet. I am completing a B.A. of Music at University of Massachusetts - Boston, with an expected graduation of August, 2014.

Tegan is a lovely young woman with great skills in teaching children music theory and piano for beginners. Two of our children are currently taking lessons and both are thrilled with Tegan. She is patient, kind, a master at her art and very entertaining while creating a constructive, fun atmosphere for children.

Tegan is very prompt - and her focus on teaching is evident from the moment she sits at the piano. This is our first experience with TakeLessons but definitely not our last thanks to Tegan. She is an asset and a joy to be around. We will definitely continue our class' with her - she is the perfect choice for our family.

I've only had two 2 hour sewing lessons so far with Tegan (I plan on taking more) and I am already showing a great deal of improvement and have a lot more confidence in my sewing. Tegan is super helpful and knowledgeable. She shows a deep understanding of sewing because she knows multiple different ways and techniques on how to approach a task and explains why, how, and what the outcome will be. She is patient and makes you feel very comfortable and relaxed which is sometimes hard to do when you're learning something new. I would totally recommend her to anyone new to sewing! Overall my experience has been great :)

Although I'm not technically a student of Phil's, I learn a lot from him every time I play and teach with him. We perform regularly at Berklee, where I'm a professor, and we give concerts and masterclasses all over the Northeast together (most recent was at Cornell). Phil's a warmhearted, patient, brilliant teacher and an outstanding and creative musician, seamlessly putting together everything he knows--jazz, shredding, classical--there's no boundaries for him! He's great at explaining things, and he never belittles a question, no matter how dumb you might have thought it was. Phil's a great friend and a great teacher. -John Funkhouser, Berklee College of Music, Boston

In addition to being the most talented guitarist and musician I have ever had the opportunity to play with, Phil is an astoundingly good teacher. I've played guitar for 8 years and taken private lessons the entire time. Phil has been my teacher for the past 2 years and in that time I have progressed as a musician more than I could have ever imagined. Phil has been the biggest factor in my decision to major in music, due to his unrivaled musical talent, his kind, unassuming, (and funny) demeanor and his seemingly limitless knowledge of the fretboard. He is well versed in so many genres of music, and has such an effortless grasp on improvisation. Any guitarist, from immediate beginners to seasoned professionals, can learn so much from Phil. Need I say more?

Phil is the man! I had been playing for several years before I took lessons with him. He has introduced me to volumes of new music, helped me grow as an improviser, and even taught me how to read for the guitar (which was never my goal in taking lessons, but I'm very happy I can read now). He's helped to expand my playing by constantly introducing new and creative ideas in a supportive atmosphere.

Phil demonstrates a mastery of his instrument while always making his lessons accessible to the student. Definitely check this guy out if you want to reach the next level!
