Originally from Maine, Jon Boisvert is now a guitarist in Raleigh, NC and has been heavily involved in the Triangle's music scene for the past 20 years, both as a guitar teacher and performer. He employs a style that is a fusion of jazz, blues, classical, rock and folk - the culmination of more than 35 years of music study.
Maybe you're looking for just the right music for your indoor or outdoor wedding - and the old church organ or string quartet aren't your style. Or, maybe you'd like to add some great background music at your restaurant, corporate holiday party or other special event. Jon can provide guitar music tailored to your audience that is sure to bring not just fun, but professionalism and experience you can trust.
Jon has performed at locations including the JC Raulston Arboretum, Duke Gardens, NC Museum of Art and many of the area's restaurants, live music venues and country clubs. You can also catch him monthly at Prestonwood Country Club and The Empress Room.
Have you always wanted to learn to play the guitar or take your skill to the next level? Whether you're a child or adult, you can do it! Jon is a patient, experienced teacher who helps every student learn songs they like - whether you want to impress your friends with a rendition of Jimmy Buffet or Taylor Swift.
Jon adapts his teaching style to fit your needs. He can help with sight reading, theory, improvisation, composition, ear training and more. But whatever the direction, the effort is always geared toward making each lesson fun and challenging. Lessons are available in North Raleigh and Midtown locations.
"Jon Boisvert performed at our wedding ceremony at the JC Raulston Arboretum. After the wedding, everyone raved about the music. He even learned a special song that I requested and attended our rehearsal the evening before to provide set up ideas. He was prompt with email responses, which made our life easy. We would recommend him for any event."
"My husband's 60th birthday party was a blast! Thanks for sharing your great advice and fantastic guitar music. Everyone left complimenting me on my choice of musician!"
"My daughter has been taking guitar lessons with Jon for five years. I can't believe how fast she's progressed! She loves playing the guitar and working with Jon every week on her new 'favorite' song. It's a joy to see how accomplished and self-confident she's become."
