Private Guitar Teacher

I can teach beginning guitar students how to play their favorite songs. Also, how to read tabs and chord charts. Advanced students can learn theory and jazz improvisation. I can help students who have been using a capo learn how to play bar chords so you will no longer need a capo.
Guitar students should be at least nine years old.
I do not teach finger picking style.

My son has been taking piano lessons with John for 6 years and guitar lessons for 4 years. John is an excellent teacher, very talented musician, and a cool guy. He has taught my son to play 2 instruments and has incorporated music theory as well. My son looks forward to his weekly lessons.

My son has taken piano lessons with John in studio and online for several years. John gets kids playing and enjoying music quickly. John and my son have a great rapport and he has helped encourage my son’s music interests.
I wasn’t sure about online lessons when Covid started, but they have been going very well. John is always timely and prepared.
Monique B.
My children took online lessons with John for 6 months. They were not beginners; rather they had many years of prior experience. Our need for a new teacher was due to our previous teacher retiring. My children have always loved and excelled at their music lessons, and they've had a wonderful rapport with their previous teachers.

John would often come to piano lessons unprepared. He would spend a significant portion of the lesson sight-reading and fumbling over a piece, trying to figure out how it was supposed to sound before attempting to teach it to my child. Then he would become impatient when my child had a question or thought it was supposed to be played differently. Once I was compelled to intervene because John became noticeably upset with my child, accusing him of arguing, when my child had merely pointed out a legitimate problem with an instruction he had given. John admitted he had been impatient and apologized. It also bears noting that my child, with whom John lost composure, is autistic. John was well aware of this.

Most recently, my younger child had some similar confusion/questioning over an instruction that was given. John flew into a tantrum, repeatedly accusing my child of arguing. His voice was raised, he was clearly upset. In addition he told my child "you're really stressing me out...maybe I'm just not the right teacher for you...usually with my piano students we have a lot of fun but you just keep arguing...maybe you're just having a bad day..." At this point I intervened. John continued to repeat himself - I had to raise my voice in order to be heard. I identified myself, asked what the problem was - what was my child arguing about? He just kept repeating "you're just arguing" without addressing me or giving any specifics. I responded "John, am I arguing with you? I'm just trying to ask a question." John raised his camera, at which point I observed he was red in the face, sweating, shaking and rocking back and forth in distress. He had completely lost control. Then he spoke again to my child - who was sitting quietly, in total shock - instructing him to play the piece again. I said "I think we need to be done for today." Before I ended the call, my child managed to squeak out a "thank you." As soon as it was over he burst into tears. This was the first time in over eleven years of devoting time, money and hard work into music lessons that a teacher made one of my children cry.

John took no responsibility for his grossly unprofessional behavior. I had hoped he would calm down and at least acknowledge how completely out of line he had been. Unfortunately that was not the case, and instead he dropped my children, citing a sudden schedule conflict.

I wish I didn't feel compelled to write this review, but my attempt to resolve the incident privately was unsuccessful. My sole purpose for sharing this information is to prevent a traumatic experience from happening to anyone else's child. Learning music should be challenging, enriching and joyful. The teacher ought to come prepared, and absolutely must be in control of his or her mental and emotional state. This was not our experience with John, thus I absolutely do not recommend him.

I highly recommend Mel for fiddle. He had a lot of really good tips and was very willing to find songs that fit the kind of music I wanted to play. Highly recommend!
Ilona
I absolutely love Mel’s lessons and look forward to them every week! I haven’t played seriously in years and have developed some bad bowing habits and difficulty with pitch over time and was close to not playing anymore. After reading the other reviews, I decided to give him a try and am so thankful I did!! My bowing and intonation is improving, he incorporates some music theory appropriate to what we are learning to master the song. I can’t wait to see where I am in 6 months from now! Thank you Mel, my passion for music is returning and am looking forward to my audition in the community orchestra next season!
Hannah
I just started working with Mel and he is awesome! He really listened to my goals and the type of music I am interested in playing and he is planning our lessons based on that. He is very good at explaining things and giving examples. I look forward to our lessons. Highly recommend!

Rina is a wonderful teacher. From the perspective of an adult student, her understanding of the challenges an adult beginner experiences puts the student at ease when taking lessons with her. While exhibiting such empathy, Rina will always inspire the student to become a better musician. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would.

Rina is an organized instructor who perceives my son’s strengths/weaknesses and demonstrates real concern for him as a blossoming musician. She goes out of her way in unexpected ways such as helping him acquire a better instrument at a bargain price. Wow!
