Matt was amazing! These lessons were a first for my 10 year old daughter, and Matt's style and demeanor were perfect! He's very knowledgeable, kind and patient - characteristics I was looking for in a vocal coach. I would highly recommend him to anyone who has a child with a passion for singing and wants to develop it.

Mathew is an awesome singing instructor. He is able to describe how you should sound vocally as well as describe what you should be feeling (physically) while you practice. He incorporates a variety of different exercises that help significantly to produce a great sound.

I've noticed that my voice has improved significantly over the last couple of months. The sound is clearer, more powerful, and my range has improved a lot.

I would highly recommend Matthew as your next singing instructor!

Was very impressed with Peter's methods, demeanor, patience with my 9 year-old daughter, who is a beginner at piano. She had some experience at reading music, and Peter was adept at recognizing this and 'pushing the envelope' a bit with her and she responded enthusiastically. She left every lesson with a smile on her face.

Bryan B.

Shelton, CT

About Bryan

I have enjoyed music as long as I can remember! Whether listening, playing, writing, or teaching…I find great pleasure in the creative outlet that music provides. At the age of five I began studying classical piano, in elementary school I studied trumpet, in middle school I picked up the guitar and bass, and in high school these experiences collided as I began to write and arrange for various ensembles. Playing in a rock band all through high school and college, I've had opportunity to record two albums and to tour regionally in the North East. Receiving a Bachelor of Music in Music Education at Gordon College in Wenham, MA, I studied classical guitar with David Patterson for four years while I gained much experience in various areas of classroom education (band, choir, theory, ...

Cameron S.

Ansonia, CT

About Cameron

STUDYING WITH ME: Learning guitar should be interesting and fun! While we're studying all the different aspects of the instrument, you'll also be learning how to play your favorite songs and solos! I approach each student as an individual and structure their lessons according to what I determine they need, as well as what they are interested in musically. I concentrate on many different areas; ear training, theory, playing technique, improvisation, various styles of music, and, the physics of the guitar. Understanding how the instrument works is important in my opinion. My long term goal is to teach a student how they can teach themselves down the line. Understanding why you’re playing something is just important as knowing how to play it. I aim to give a student rich and well ...

A solid teacher with a lot of experience

Cameron is great at tailoring the lessons to my musical taste without compromising the theory, basics and fundamentals.
I have been taking lessons for one year and will not go elsewhere anytime soon. His vast musical knowledge helps merge the theory with concrete examples. No question remains unanswered.

great instructor

I've been taking bass lessons from Cameron for a few months now. He's a great instructor. Very knowledgeable, very patient, and puts in time outside our lessons to be prepared to teach or play new material that I am interested in. I always look forward to my lessons. If you're looking for a good bass or guitar teacher (not sure what else he might teach) Cameron is your guy!

Jeff F.

New Fairfield, CT

About Jeff

*** Travel Equipment *** When I travel, they're expected to have an instrument, amp (if necessary) and note book. *** Specialties *** Having taught for so long I rely on my own experience as a musician, using my extensive knowledge of music theory and the guitar as an instrument to impart a heightened awareness and love of performance and the rewards of a disciplined and focused practice habit to my students. Whether a student wants to learn rock, blues, jazz, pop, folk or other genres, I give them key insights and the right approach to achieve his/her goal in the minimum amount of time. Practice is essential to growth.

My son has been taking lessons with Jeff for a year now and can honestly say he is one of the best teachers he has had. He not only teaches my son to play songs, but also teaches him how to read notes, the theory and history of music. My son enjoys and looks forward to meeting with Jeff for his lessons every week. And I extremely happy and thrilled to have found him.

I've been taking lessons with Jeff for over 6 years. He is the most knowledgeable instructor I've ever met and is fluent all music styles with an in depth understanding of music theory. Our lessons are always fun, entertaining and educational. We always mix music theory with any songs we are trying to figure out and Jeff always wants you to leave with having learned something new, not just how to play a song.
I really value the time I spent in Jeff's lessons and would recommend him to anyone interested in pursuing guitar lessons.

Jeff is a great guitar teacher! He is very knowledgeable and I really enjoy my lessons. I have been playing guitar for more than 30 years and I have tried different teachers. Until I met Jeff, I could not find a teacher that could assess my knowledge and add to it. Jeff is the only guitar teacher that was able to understand where I was at and provide insights and improvements right away. Other teachers all focused on what they wanted to teach, not what I needed to learn. If you are an experience guitar player and want to improve, Jeff is the guy. My lessons cover multiple styles but mostly rock, blues, and jazz.

Jeff always has something new for me that is interesting & fun. I'm looking forward to my next lesson.
