About Ed

I am a Berklee College of Music Graduate and have a Master's Degree in Education. I offer affordable private lessons for all ages on Guitar, Bass, Ukulele, and Banjo. I teach all playing levels from the absolute beginner (my specialty) through the most advanced professional. All playing styles are taught including Rock, Blues, Jazz, Country, Acoustic Fingerstyle, Classical, and Gospel! Beginners are always welcome.

Learn from an experienced professional with a proven track record!

Some of my accomplishments as a teacher include being the instructor of the 2014 MMEA Northeastern Senior District (guitar) and Junior District (bass) winners.

I have over 25 years of experience teaching all styles of music. I've instructed over 50 scholarship and/or award winning middle school, high school and college applicants, many of whom began learning from me as absolute novices.

I received my Bachelor's Degree from Berklee College of Music (B.M.) and have a Master's Degree in Education (M.Ed.).
I am also a New England Conservatory alumnus.

I am a Certified teacher by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. I have authored numerous published transcription and lesson articles, as well as a guitar instructional book.

Study the styles of the masters and have fun doing it.
