Teacher recommendations in Massachusetts?

Post by ghostwind » Thu Dec 14, 2017 11:20 pm

Hi all! I'm a 44 year old looking to re-learn classical guitar (and some other musical genres) after a 25 year break. I had played when young, but then moved on to piano. Now I want to get back to it, and looking for an experienced teacher that teaches classical as well as some other genres. I live in the Greater Boston area, so looking for any good recommendations forum members may have. Thanks!

Hi,
I highly recommend Louis Arnold. He's based in Lunenburg, MA, but teaches at the Minor Chord in Acton, MA.
I took lessons from him for 5 years many years ago, and am hoping to hook back up with him when I can swing it.
He was affiliated at that time with the New England Conservatory, and he's a graduate of the Longy School of Music.
Great guy, and a very open-minded, well rounded musician who also excels in many other genres.
His contact info here:

Best regards,
Andre

I think our own Kevin Collins teaches in Mass.

Yes, but he is a two hour drive from Boston. :-/

You might look up Berit Strong. She lives just outside of Boston. She lives in Maynard.
