“Both my daughters (9 & 10)have been taking piano lessons from Braden Palmer since 2014, and have had wonderful experiences. He has taught them how to read, and understand music. He has instilled accountability in practicing, which they respect. He has shown great patience when working with my ADHD daughter. The lessons are at the end of the day, and for my ADHD kid- the meds have worn off. She has good days and bad days, but Braden has always treated her with the respect he expects and doesn’t put up with nonsense. He understands the challenges in dealing with an ADHD kid who cannot sit still too long and has never complained. He has seen her interest in changing to the Guitar and has communicated the benefits to the girls playing different instruments. He has seen this could be a way they learn at different paces and one is not significantly better than the other, which would avoid feelings of inadequacy. He sees the strengths in both girls and encourages them to be the best they want to be! I highly recommend Braden, and I am certain, if he is around until college, he will be in our lives..”Beth M. - Windsor Terrace
“Braden is exactly what I was looking for in a guitar teacher. His enthusiasm and patience made for an inspiring and comfortable environment. He made lesson plans according to what I was interested in but also to what I needed to learn in order to become a better all around guitar player. He has an impeccable ear and is very specific when suggesting exercises to help with a particular area I was having trouble in. I will be taking more lessons from Braden in the near future and I highly recommend him for students of all ages!”Denise R.
“Braden is an exceptional guitar teacher, and his guitar playing is top-notch in a wide variety of styles. Not only has he mastered the guitar as an instrument, but he was a great teacher to someone who never had a lesson and acquired years of bad habits. Braden’s ear is sharp and he finds a great balance between encouraging and challenging his students. Highly recommend if you are looking to learn guitar correctly or take your skills to another level.”Richard H.
“I took beginner mandolin lessons with Braden this past summer, and found him to be friendly, patient, knowledgeable, and encouraging. I appreciated that he let me bring in tunes that I was interested in working on, while being a stickler for proper technique, and practicing “correctly”. I learned a lot, and feel inspired to continue playing. Highly recommend!”Talia S. – Boston, MA
