Whats New?

Thumbtack Best Pro of 2015
I was recently honored as a Best of 2015 winner on Thumbtack.com for my excellent service reviews over the last year.  Thank You very much to all that have taken the time to review my teaching abilities.  I look forward to many more years of great lessons with all of you!

Studio is up and running 

I recently built a studio in my home in Sudbury.  Its been a dream of mine for quite a while, to have a place of my own to teach, record, and jam.  Big thanks to RJ Development for the work they did on the room to soundproof and renovate.  Time to get started!

A Couple new videos 

JQ Trio recently did a few videos for Ben Melvin's audition process for post grad schools.  Take a listen!  He's killin' on these tracks. 

JQ Trio Releases Videos of New Material 

I recently went into the studio to record some great new material by guitarist Jeremy Quick.  We had a blast laying down the tracks and as you'll see, I think they came out great.  Frank Ojeda was phenomenal on bass, and kept us all laughing.  Its great to have people who keep it loose and fun while getting some serious work done.  Awesome job all around!

Gustave is this month's Student Spotlight.  Here, he is playing along to the standard "It Don't Mean a Thing if It Aint Got That Swing".  He has worked very hard to develop his great sense of musicality and phrasing.  Its been a pleasure working with him.  His hard work has really paid off.  Take a listen.
