Jim Remington has been teaching acoustic guitar for over 20 years. During that time he has amassed a wealth of knowledge in many acoustic guitar styles. Folk, Blues, Classical, Celtic, Bossa Nova and acoustic rock rythm and lead are some of the styles Jim regularly teaches. Each lesson is tailored for the individual student needs and interests. Jim makes his lessons enjoyable by using a combination of song material (teacher and student choice) and exercises. Jim attended Berkley School of Music in Boston, MA where he studied jazz guitar, music theory and composition. He also studied classical guitar with Thomas E. Greene (Brown University and University of Rhode Island) and jazz and flamenco guitar with Don Cote. Jim believes each music lesson should be fun and rewarding.
