I have taught at Berklee College of Music, The New England Harmonica and Guitar Intensive, Club Passim School of Music, and the Concord Conservatory of Music. I run a thriving guitar and banjo studio at the Cambridge Music Consortium (CMC), and enjoy every moment. Over 10 years of experience as an instructor, I have taught thousands of guitar, banjo, and ensemble lessons.

Why study with me?

  • I love teaching!teaching is not just a way for me to pay the bills. I love working with students of all ages and skill levels.

  • I am an award-winning practitioner - my extensive performance and composition experience makes me an effective educator. I practice what I preach, and bring wisdom from years of stage and studio experience into the classroom as I work with you.

  • I tailor my curriculum to fit your goals - I work with each student to develop a personalized study plan. This non-dogmatic approach allows me to make a genuine and meaningful connection with my students, and makes lessons fun and engaging. I take the time to get to know you, and have the tools to meet you where you are, regardless of your stylistic preferences. Pop, indie, rock, blues, Celtic? Your choice!

  • My approach is holistic - I promote the development of listening skills, body awareness, and humor as invaluable tools on the path towards mastering a musical instrument.​ I combine an emphasis on learning by ear with formal tools such as sight reading and harmonic analysis.

I look forward to working with you! Please feel free to contact me at irakleinmusic@gmail.com for more details, and to schedule an in-person or online lesson.
