Clayton S.

Waltham, MA

About Clayton

I am a certified high school English teacher who enjoys teaching people of all ages to play the guitar and bass. In addition, I have a masters degree in music from Bates College. My educational philosophy is to focus on the goals of individual students and then develop lessons and practice routines to help to achieve these goals. I am most proficient in rock, blues, roots/Americana and jazz styles but I have an open mind and I am willing to help you tackle any form of music. I have been playing the guitar since 1995 and the electric bass since 1999, I am very easy to get along with and I a
m sure that I will be able to help you become a better musician. I have played guitar with the Ska band Mrs. Skannotto (2000-2003) and in various rock and blues projects since. I have been teaching guitar lessons for over two years and love to help my students improve their playing.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have a laid back personality, but I do expect to develop defined goals for each lesson in order to make sure that my students are making progress towards their goals for their instrument. I create individualized lessons for each student based on their goals that may include the use of a lesson book (Hal Leonard) and chord/scale charts. I am also willing to record backing tracks for students to practice with at home.

A beginning guitar student may expect to learn to tune the instrument, change strings, play open chords, learn scales and rhythm (picking or strumming) techniques in the first few months. Afterwards, more advanced skills like basic music theory, chord structure, finger-picking, reading TAB and soloing over chord progressions will be taught.

By three months, a beginning bass student will learn to tune the instrument, learn to play over basic chord progressions and learn finger-style and/or picking technique depending upon their preference and style. I will help you to learn to lock in with a drummer in a band situation since the bass is all about the groove after all. A great band always starts with a solid rhythm section.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living Room: couch, chairs, music stand, guitar amp, basses and guitars, parents can sit in on lesson

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide an amplifier for my students to use if necessary. My students are expected to provide their own instrument for lessons.

*** Specialties ***
Blues, Rock, Folk, Jazz, Indie/Alt Rock

Clay does a great job teaching my ten year old daughter

As noted above, Clay is very good with a beginner like my daughter. He has a great, gentle manner, is very patient, and is clearly very skilled at playing the guitar itself. He is doing a great job!

Robert B.

Newton Highlands, MA

About Robert

Robert B., classical guitarist, has been performing and teaching classical guitar since the 1990’s. He earned his teacher’s certificate and performer’s certificate at the “Conservatorium van Maastricht” (Netherlands) and came to Boston, to study with Eliot Fisk at New England Conservatory. Robert has also participated in many masterclasses given by internationally-renowned artists such as Pepe Romero, David Russell, Abel Carlevaro and Alexander Frauchi.

Robert performs regularly as a soloist or in collaboration with piano, violin, flute or voice in programs ranging from classical opera ari
as to contemporary compositions dedicated to his piano guitar duo.

As a teacher, Robert tailors his lessons according to each student’s ability and interests, helping them to reach their potential in a fun and relaxed learning environment. Through a process of exploration and discovery of their instrument, Robert stimulates students’ natural curiosity about the guitar where all challenges are an opportunity for learning. The more comfortable they feel with their instrument, the more likely they are to enjoy the practicing that will make them proficient on the guitar, or even a master!

*** Lesson Details ***
Setting personal goals and determining how to get there provides a clear structure in your lessons and provide continuous guidance to your practice. As a teacher Robert helps you set and reach your goals by dividing the learning curve in small, manageable chunks. Like walking, you get there a step at the time with Robert there to help and support you all the way.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Since Robert will be visiting at your house, it is important to have a proper set up for your lesson. Two chairs, a foot stool, a music stand, set up in a room to work undisturbed. If you are using an electric guitar, make sure to also have an amplifier (I can bring one if needed) and a working cable! Oh, and have a notebook and something to write!

*** Travel Equipment ***
Footstool and music stand if needed, student needs to have instrument and two proper chairs

*** Specialties ***
I am prolific in any style and my specialization is classical guitar, methods are a mix from the 19th century masters (Carulli, Carcassi, Sor) and later masters (Pujol, Carlevaro) But also more contemporary insights from Shearer and specifically the Suzuki method for guitar.

Exceptionally thorough teacher

Robert is exceptionally thorough and starts from the fundamentals of classical guitar playing. I was an intermediate acoustic/electric guitar player but a beginner classical guitarist, so he started with correcting my right hand technique.

He is very light-hearted, funny and a cheerful teacher. Although classical guitar playing is intense, he allows me to learn at a comfortable pace and provides helpful resources (music sheets) to practice and improve.

I would highly recommend Robert if you are looking for a classical guitar teacher.

GO FOR IT and make an appointment right now!!!

I was one of Roberts first students in the 80´s. I stopped playing the guitar long time ago but I always think back to Roberts classes with a warm heart and a smile. These were good times! I learnt a lot and sure we had a lot of fun as well. It is great to see how Robert developed over the years. As a truly dedicated musician he is continuously refining his skills (while I thought he was exceptional already). Students from all levels and walk of life will benefit greatly from his allround knowledge and experience.

Outstanding classical guitar teacher

As an adult student who is very busy but still loves to play, I appreciate that Robert's wide repertoire and experience helps to make the best use of my time by targetting appropriate instructional pieces. He is a highly skilled, enthusiastic, and patient teacher.

About Michael

Hi there! I'm Michael and I recently graduated from New England Conservatory (NEC) with my BFA in Jazz Performance on trombone while also completing NEC's Music-In-Education (MIE) Concentration.

I'm currently an active trombonist in the Boston music scene having played with a wide variety of groups at many of Boston's top venues. I also enjoy curating and producing music events and festivals! But most importantly, I love to teach (that's why you're here, right?)!

Working with people and watching them grow brings me a lot of joy. A recent highlight was hosting my first recital for my stu
dents at my private studio-- it was a really special evening and am excited for more!

Feel free to e-mail at mprentky@gmail.com or call me at 617-827-7378. I'd love to chat!

The number one tenant is to have fun! I offer a relaxed, but hard-working environment while keeping the lessons easy-going, stimulating, and educational. My job is to challenge you, make your "brain sweat," and to keep you engaged. I'm flexible and very sensitive to your needs.

Michael is an excellent teacher. For the first time in years, my 11 years old son is looking forward the his trombone lessons! Not only he's making lots of progress, he also loves the fact that Michael is always open to play the music that he likes and that they improvise a lot, which makes it so much more fun playing.
Michael is also very easy to get in touch with and very accommodating if a change in schedule is needed.
Super easy going, highly recommended.

My daughter is learning so much from Michael. She started out having no idea how to play any brass instrument. She's now been taking lessons with Michael for 4 months and is making great progress. He's a fantastic teacher and also very reliable and communicative around scheduling issues. Highly recommended.

Ehud E.

Newtonville, MA

About Ehud

My name is Ehud, I've been combining a teaching and performance career for the past few years. I'm a bassist, composer and band leader and I hold a M.M from the New England Conservatory and a B.M from the Jerusalem Music Academy. In my teaching, I work with students in order on the skills that are required to be a musician, and be able to use music as a language. I enjoy teaching very much, and love seeing how my students make progress and develop.

*** Bio ***
Musical Explosion (Yedioth)
"Real Promise"
Described as "one of the top Bassists in New York City" by "Blue Monk Moods", Bassis
t and Composer Ehud E. is internationally renowned as one of the most unique voices in the Jazz and world music scene. His defined approach to the Bass and his captivating performance has quickly made him one of the most on demand Bassists in the United States and in Israel.

As a sideman, Mr. E. has performed with Jazz legends such as Fred Hersch, Georeg Garzone, Eli Degibri and others. He has played in top jazz venues and festivals in Israel, Europe, South America and the US.

The album received great reviews and the band was featured on NPR, Boston Globe (Crtitic's pick) and gained world-wide media attention.

Ehud is very knowledgeable of his profession and patient with my 7 year old boy. Ehud is very patient and flexible when needed, he has tremendous approach and goes right to the point when teaching. I can see my son's improvement week to week. I would recommend him to all students at any age and any level. Best of all he comes to teach my son right at our music room in our house.

Best teacher ever! That guy takes the time to explain in the best way how to play different techniques and styles, very informative and the best part is- you can take the lesson from the comfort of your home! He gives lessons through Skype and next thing you know you are a professional musician! Highly recommended!

I offer these observations on behalf of Ehud E. not as his student, but
rather as an appreciative listener--from a very unusual vantage point. I had
the great privilege of hearing one of the world's greatest bassists, Dave
Holland perform live with Miles Davis, as well as Chick Correa. Notably,
it is Holland with whom Ehud studied in a Master Class. I am doubly blessed
now to be able to continue hearing another of the world's greatest bassists,
Ehud E.--in various live performances.
It bears mentioning that having seen Ehud perform for audiences of
all ages, he has that rare ability to teach us as individuals not only to play our
instruments better, but to be better listeners, as well. He doesn't merely
'perform' for his audience members; he communicates with each of them
intimately, in his own, unique dialect of the universal language of music.
I can only imagine the joy of being his student--and the gift of being
able to witness one's own musicality come alive in the moment, while learning
at his side.
