I am excited to offer the hands-on experience of building your own guitar.  You'd work alongside me in my workshop, using only the best material and tools.  During this 7-day journey, you will start with high quality tone woods and with close guidance, you will transform the material into a beautiful instrument that you will have for a lifetime and the deep sense of pride that only comes when building an instrument with your own hands.

I am currently accepting 1 student for a personalized experience at a cost of $5,500 or bring a friend for a maximum of 2 students at a cost of $5,000 each.  Price includes tuition, materials, and a guitar case, a $1,500 deposit is required to secure your dates.  The class will run for 7 consecutive days starting Sunday and running through Saturday. 

My shop is conveniently located outside of Boston in Hopkinton, MA, best known for being the start of the Boston Marathon.  

I look forward to taking you on this journey of a lifetime that leaves you with a hand-crafted acoustic guitar built by you.  I'm currently accepting students on a per request basis, and only offer up to 2 classes per year.  To secure your date or if you have questions, you can call or text me at 617-359-1867 or email me at

"I have just completed building a guitar with Patrick at his Morrissey Guitar Academy. In a process that you are taken through (hands on) from start to finish. The results are an instrument that has surpassed anything I could have imagined. With his great knowledge, patients and exceptional woodworking skills I not only have an amazing Guitar but a new set of skills and understanding of what it takes to makes a great sound. Lessons I will cherish for the rest of my life. A Guitar anyone on any level would be proud to take care of and pass down for Generations."
