Fostering a skilled, supportive, musical and instructional presence in the amazing communities we serve!


As a student at RNS, you will come to understand that music is a language, and we want to give you the tools and resources that you need in order to speak and understand that language fluently. Prioritizing your interests and genres that you prefer, we will expand in areas where you seek improvement, as well as incorporating ear training, music theory, and new exercises and techniques specific to your skill level and instrument. Each lesson is tailored to each student's learning style. From reading music and ear training to writing counterpoint and mastering improvisational techniques, together we will find ways to help you grow as a musician. - Root Note Studio is located in downtown Lowell, MA.

Lowell, MA- Mill No. 5

We've been open in Lowell, MA for over 7 years, and have had a few different locations in the area. Finally, we found our dream location - Mill No. 5, located downtown. Mill No. 5 is an incredible old mill building being transformed into a retail/office space for small businesses, tech start ups, arts, culture, and more. Weekly events and bazarres keep the mill bustling with activity and a productive community of local artists and business owners. 

Western Avenue Studios

We also have another studio located on Western Avenue Studios in downtown Lowell. The studio is fully equipped

with recording gears ready for full music production. We offer recording sessions & lessons here.

Skype Lessons

Conveniently take Skype guitar lessons from the home, office, or while traveling! Scheduling is incredibly flexible. Perhaps you live in a rural area and lack the time and availability that it would take to travel to a teaching studio regularly. You could be looking for a fresh perspective by taking a few lessons with a new teacher. You might just want to take a lesson here and there, without the added inconveniences of traffic and gas consumption. Whatever the reason, feel free to contact us today to discuss the possibility of getting started with an Introductory Lesson!


You will need:

- a computer

- a video camera for your computer (many computers have this already installed)

- a high quality internet connection

a Skype login (a completely FREE program)

- your instrument.


Once everything is set up for a Skype lesson on your end, send me an email and we can immediately schedule your lesson, as soon as that same day!


Lessons are booked in hourly increments, at the rate of $60/hour.
