I offer private lessons in person at my house in Granby, MA.
Lessons are generally one hour a week, but I am fairly flexible and sometimes offer bi-weekly or half-hour lessons. Please ask.
Advanced students that can already read and understand the basics of their instrument will study more advanced theory including the modes, advanced timing and rhythm, advanced chords, harmonization, improvisation, and will be introduced to a wide variety of music depending on the genre and style they have chosen to study. For example, Classical musicians will be exposed to a variety of composers from the Renaissance Era up to the Romantic Era and everything in between. Folk musicians will be exposed to a wide variety of western European traditional dance music styles including Celtic, Quebecois and Cape Breton music as well as American styles such as Bluegrass, Country, Western Swing, Jazz, Blues, and more.
Advanced students may be eligible for either the Classical Group Class (Wednesdays at 7pm), the Celtic Group (Thursdays 7-9pm).. Some advanced players may want to play in both. There is a $5 discount per class for students that wish to join more than one as long as they attend on a weekly basis. The discount does not apply for one-offs or trial periods.
