Welcome to Shimon's Studio

Private music lessons for guitar, bass Guitar and ukulele for all ages and levels.


I have been on the music scene for the past 30 years. I am a Berklee College of Music graduate, and during my musical career, I have played with great musicians in the New England area, local big bands, blues and world music groups.

I lead my own group that is spirited, innovative, and musical.

My cds Shades, Ways, Encounters, and IV, have received excellent reviews.

I teach bass, guitar and Ukulele privately at my home studio.

My teaching career has been varied from Public Schools at the elementary and junior high level, to conservatories.

I'm proud to say that some of my former students have perused a career in the music field, and are now playing with bands and orchestras.

I hope to foster the joy of music for life in my students by participating and listening to all styles of music.
My method covers everything from traditional to contemporary styles.

Clients Testimony:

Shimon came very highly recommended; my 11 year old son has been taking classes from him for the past 4 years. He loves his teaching style. Shimon is flexible with music selection, which tends to empower my son. He is very soft spoken and shows lots of patience with kids of all ages. We have found him to be accommodating with class scheduling. Best value in town!

Shimon is a great teacher. I am an adult student with no guitar experience. Shimon has excellent patience and if you don't understand a concept one way he will show you another way. I feel that Shimon could teach anyone guitar at any level of experience or age. He has been very flexible on lesson times and dates. For Shimon's level of expertise and experience his price can only be stated as a bargain. So if you are considering lessons and you are looking for a Teacher that has it all: patience, superb knowledge and flexibility look no further Shimon is your teacher. I highly recommend him. Thank you Shimon for making guitar lessons fun and extremely jam packed with knowledge.

I was looking to take a few bass lessons as character research for a role, but I was pleasantly surprised at how much I truly enjoyed working with Shimon and learning the bass guitar. I have a hectic schedule and Shimon was very flexible and accommodating. Thanks for all you help and support! I couldn't have been more satisfied with my experience
