I've taken lessons with Juliet for the last two summers, and it's been truly incredible. I go to a school of the arts for classical guitar, and all of the theory and technique she's taught me has come in handy during my school-related music classes. In addition to being knowledgeable in all things guitar, she's also a wonderful person and teacher. Juliet is kind, patient, and compassionate, and never gets frustrated if it takes you a while to understand a concept- she seems to be able to explain every topic in a multitude of ways. My experience with Juliet has been amazing, and I will definitely be coming back next summer. I'd highly recommend her to any guitarist or aspiring guitarist who wants a friendly, positive teacher to assist them in reaching their goals.
I played a little guitar in high school but never learned to read music. For years I have wanted to learn to play classical guitar and read music. Juliet has been a wonderful teacher – patient, supportive, encouraging. She allows me to learn at my own pace. I cannot imagine a better instructor.
Juliet is a wonderful guitar teacher. Initially, my 13 year-old son had been taking guitar lessons with a different instructor, and after several months he began to lose interest and motivation. However, after meeting Juliet, I had a good feeling about her and encouraged him to give guitar another shot. With Juliet as his new teacher amazingly, his attitude took a 180 degree turn, he made more progress in a few weeks than he had in months, and was excited about learning from Juliet! I strongly recommend!
I have been taking guitar lessons with Juliet for about 6 months. Words cannot express what a fantastic musician AND teacher she is! It's one thing to be able to play like one of the masters and another thing entirely to be able to teach all levels of musicians everything from basic music theory to technique that will preserve aching joints to beautiful musicality. I LOVE working with her, and my guitar lessons are honestly the highlight of my week. In addition to really knowing her stuff and knowing how to relay all that information in bite-sized pieces, she is kind, patient, funny, and encouraging. We move at my pace -- some weeks making tons of progress because I have lots of time to practice, and others going super slowly because I'm overbooked with work and life stuff. I love that she cheers me on when I make quick progress, but is also very patient with me when things are slow-moving. She is never condescending, and is happy to take any crazy question I throw at her. The low-pressure and fun atmosphere in the lessons honestly makes it easier for me to practice in my own time and know that whatever little bit of progress I make that week will be welcomed with open arms in my next lesson -- so I don't dread lessons like I have with other teachers (whoops!). I think that's helped me to make quicker progress than any other instrument I've tried. Again, I cannot recommend Juliet enough! She is a true gem.
I’ve been a student of Juliet’s for 6 months and I’ve enjoyed every second of learning guitar with her. Very accommodating and an excellent teacher!
very nice, helpful.
Juliet is a phenomenal guitar teacher! Her extensive training and knowledge put her above the rest. She is very professional, kind, patient and inspiring. Equally important, she makes learning fun. My daughter has been taking from her for almost a year and has learned more than I ever imagined. They even dive deep into the fundamentals, theory and history of music and guitar. I am so thankful for Juliet!
Juliet is an amazing teacher! My daughter has made so much progress with her as an instructor. She is so patient and kind, and doesn't just tell her what strings to play ut the reason and technique behind it!
Juliet Gervasi has been my instructor in classic guitar since October 2018.Her principles in pedagogy and her passion for classic guitar has allowed me to fulfill my lifelong dream to play classic guitar. Her unique approach to individual teaching has made possible for me to learn the fundamentals of classic guitar on a step by step ,taking her time to guide me. After only 6 months i am able to play classic music that before seem impossible. I owe this achievement to her dedication and patient with students of ALL ages. At 70 years old i'm celebrating my dream thanks to Juliet.
