Hi, Iā€™m Tad

I’ve been teaching music lessons professionally for 24 years, and I love to help children and adults of all ages learn to play their favorite music. I teach three instruments: guitar, harmonica, and ukulele.

Right now, all my lessons are online via Zoom. I began teaching remote lessons 14 years and have worked with students all over the world, and it works! Students learn to play, and have fun doing it.

Early on

I started playing the guitar at age 11 or 12, learning from a Beatles songbook. Later, I studied with jazz and classical teachers, and was a music major in college. I eventually recorded four original CDs and toured nationally as a solo performer for six years. I started teaching music lessons at the end of college and have continued ever since, even while on the road.


I live in Keene, New Hampshire, and enjoy playing for and dancing at contra dances. I teach lessons every week to local and distant students online. Playing new songs all the time, and discussing three musical instruments, there’s always something new to learn šŸ™‚
