Brian has been playing guitar for over 30 years. He is a Maine certified K-12 music teacher with 10 years of experience teaching guitar privately and in the classroom. He offers private guitar lessons in his Portland studio and online using Skype.

Brian teaches children and adults of any level - beginner, intermediate, or advanced. Students can learn acoustic or electric guitar, and fingerstyle or pick playing. Styles taught include classical, rock and pop, blues, jazz, folk and country. Sight-reading, music theory, and learning by ear are skills all students will develop.

Map and Directions

"For students of any age or ability looking to play guitar, I would  highly recommend Brian as a guitar teacher. I received lessons as a gift and was happy to find that Brian was a great teacher. He's passionate about music and teaching; that is reflected in the way he teaches. As a first-time instrument player, I was starting at scratch as an adult; Brian made me feel welcome, went at a good pace and was very patient and friendly. Brian's location is easy to get to and comfortable." - Kayla
