Guitar Lessons by Ben Holt
Hi, I'm Ben. Since 1999, I've taught thousands of private guitar and bass lessons in the Boston metrowest area. With a degree in music education and lots of performance experience, I am equipped to help you learn guitar technique and your favorite songs.
I love teaching. I have a laid-back, fun, encouraging demeanor. My students generally feel comfortable and valued.
I can figure almost anything out by ear, and love it when students are excited about learning songs they love. A few of my students pick almost all their own songs!
Beginners are welcome. In fact, I often prefer them because they don't have to unlearn anything.
I teach chords, strumming, picking, improvisation, and practical music theory - all at various levels and often simultaneously. My own custom curriculum includes different genres of songs such as rock, oldies, classical, and jazz. I like to pick popular songs that teach things.
