I play and teach all styles of music and enjoy beginners just as much as advanced players. I also provide an added service for online students.

By teaching guitar lessons to all ages since I was 16 years old, I find that it is necessary to instruct everyone differently. Each individual has their own learning style and enjoys different genres of music. Most traditional instructors will fail when trying to create a natural learning environment and truly connect with their students. Exceed your goals and expectations with my personalized instructing methodology.

MTC is the first of it’s kind established in 1993. I found the need for in-home music lessons in my small corner of Metrowest area of Greater Boston. Personal, one-on-one lessons in the comfort and privacy of your own home. We have since grown to this day to cover 30 cities ahnd towns throughout the New England area. What better service is needed than today with busy schedules that parents have schlepping kids here and there. And the students love the special attention they are getting in their own home, on their own piano. The parent gets to take a break for that 45 minutes or an hour to pay attention to other siblings or just to relax ... View Profile

Frequently asked questions

How much do guitar lessons cost?

The average cost for guitar lessons is $40 per hour. Available for all ages and all skill levels of guitar playing, the pricing of individual or group guitar lessons can start as low as $20/hour. Teachers charge based on their location, years of teaching, levels of knowledge and expertise, and travel time (if applicable). Lessons can last from half an hour to a full hour, and are priced accordingly.


How long does it take to learn guitar?

If you just want to learn a few chords to strum along to some songs, then learning to play the guitar really isn't that hard for most people. Many students are able to learn a few chords and get a decent strumming pattern going after a few weeks. If you've had prior experience playing an instrument, you can expect to pick it up after just a few lessons.


Should I take guitar lessons online or in person lessons?

Private in person guitar lessons with a skilled instructor that is focused on you, your interests, and your progress is the most sought after experience and hard to replicate online. Plus, you tend to learn faster in person. On the other hand, online guitar lessons are quickly becoming popular. The selection of teachers is not limited to those in your geographical area and you can communicate via video in real time with your teacher in the comfort of your home. When filling out your request on Lessons.com, we recommend you select both online and local options, then compare your options and see what works best for you.


How old should children be before starting guitar lessons?

A child as young as 4 can begin to learn if they are really motivated and have a patient, creative, and devoted teacher. However, we've found almost all kids under six are too young to benefit from formal guitar lessons, as they require dexterity and levels of concentration children their age can't provide. That being said, lessons do not need to be formal right off the bat, and can just provide a fun introduction. Also, your child may benefit from using a ukulele to start, as it's smaller and easier to learn, but very similar instrument.
