A bit about each of our wonderful teachers...........................................  

Woody Allen has been with us in more than one capacity for a number of years now.   After a stint making some great music in Key West and other exciting locales Woody found his way to the Portsmouth area.  Woody teaches all styles and levels on the guitar as well as beginner bass.  A great fingerpicker and jazz player Woody's excels on the nylon string guitar.  Call him at 430-8025 for scheduling. 

 

Brian Richardson teaches guitar and a bit of bass.  You may remember him from the Guitar Warehouse where he taught for many years.  A Berklee grad, Brian covers all styles and levels.  From the beginner to the screaming lead player to an encyclopedic repertoire of jazz tunes he's the guy for any guitarist looking to learn how to get around on the fingerboard.  Call Brian at 749-4750 for scheduling....he is available Tuesdays and Thursdays.

 

 

Old friend Bob Halperin is the local master of slide and ragtime/blues fingerpicking.  Bob is here a couple of days a week with plenty of pickin' ideas and friendly advice.  Give him a call at 988-3068 for  more info.  Check out his band Wooden Eye for some sweet Americana.

Another old friend, Curt Bessette, has taken over the back lesson room.  Curt is teaching guitar, bass, mandolin and songwriting.  His specialty is rock, blues, folk and finger-style.  He is an award-winning songwriter and has been performing and teaching around the Seacoast for over 25 years.  Curt can be reached at 207-703-0708 for scheduling....he is available Mondays and Tuesdays.  

Bob Beal is one of the busiest guys in the local music scene.  When he's not giving guitar lessons he might be working in his recording studio, BB3 Audio LLC or gigging with his band The Screen or composing music for a film or video game.  Bob is available for all levels and all styles of guitar lessons with an emphasis on jaw-dropping electric soloing.  He can be reached at 603-303-3746 for more information.....Bob is available on Wednesdays.
