Learn to Play Guitar – Private Guitar Lessons

At Berklee College of Music and New England Conservatory I was very fortunate to have received guitar lessons and music instruction from some of the best musicians and teachers in the world. Several of these individuals were extremely generous in sharing the wealth of their knowledge and experience with aspiring young musicians. My jazz guitar teachers included Tom Szymczak, Mick Goodrick, and Bill Leavitt. Classical teachers included Leonard Perry, Robert Paul Sullivan, and master classes with Jose Rey de la Torre. For me, giving guitar lessons is much more than just a livelihood. It is an opportunity to give something back. Sharing my own knowledge and experience with students, of any age or ability level, gives me great joy and satisfaction.

My teaching studio is located at Be Imagine Music Studios in Haverhill, MA. Lessons are available in classical, jazz, folk, and fingerstyle. A free consultation can be arranged to explore whether guitar lessons may be right for you or your child.
