My teaching approach: I focus on music theory and chord/scale relationships for improvisation and have several experienced jazz players as students.

I love teaching and addressing the needs of each individual student to help them reach their specific goals! Clemente Music in Worcester (where I teach) is a great environment where you become part of a community. A really cool place to meet other guitarists.
All the teachers are amazing players with years of teaching experience!
World class guitarist combined with outstanding teaching ability!
Clemente Music is THE place to go to get serious about your instrument. Rich, Joe, Dan and Paul are some of the friendliest guys I know, and certainly some of the most talented. They are all very active players, well known and respected in the Worcester scene and beyond. Rich Falco is an award winning musician and scholar, and an expert on Jazz and Jazz history. Dan Hunt builds beautiful guitars and has done some great repair work for me. Paul Courchaine is excellent with beginners, and his younger students are excited and engaged in their lessons. And I've studied with Joe D'Angelo for over 6 years, covering Rock, Blues, Jazz, Classical, and more, and it's one of the best decisions I've ever made.
Our son Chami has been taking guitar lessons with Dan Hunt since 2013. Chami has been going to Clemente Music once a week for five years. We have only missed lessons due to illness or school commitments. Chami has always been ready to go at 10.00 a.m on Saturday morning with no hesitation. It is a testament to Dan's skill as a teacher that Chami has learned to play the guitar. It is a testament to Dan's calm personality that Chami has enjoyed the experience thoroughly. I have benefited a great deal from the atmosphere at Clemente Music with the animated conversations about music and musicians, during the several times that I have visited the studio. I can only imagine how worthwhile it has been to a regular student like Chami. Dan Hunt and Clemente Music have been an essential part of Chami's education. I have no doubt that Chami will always cherish his memories of Saturday mornings at Clemente Music. Most importantly, I am confident that he will play the guitar his whole life.
He was my music mentor for about 16 years - that must say something. (I moved out of the area). Rich has a firm grounding in jazz, guitar, and the music biz. He is no less a great human being as well. You can't go wrong here!
