Bonnie has been teaching my oldest son how to play the guitar for two years. He has learned so much from her. When he started playing the Baritone last year he didn't have any issues with reading the music thanks to his lessons with Bonnie. My youngest son is taking art lessons and gets better and better with each lesson. Bonnie is a very patient and fun teacher. She is also very encouraging.
After the first try-out lesson, the very first thing I asked my 13-year old son about John Miller, as a guitar teacher, and his approach to teaching was, "How do you like him?". My son's answer was an exuberant, "I like him. He's cool!". Let me expound a little bit on that. My son plays the piano and a little bit of string bass so he has intermediate knowledge of music, in general. As a guitar student, he is a complete beginner. After a couple more lessons, he often comes out of John's studio looking at ease, not compelled. In my mind, that told me we made a very good choice for a guitar teacher in John. On a parent perspective, 25 miles of driving to his studio is not the best option considering I also had to deal with the 5pm-rush hour traffic. The good nature in John still managed to be very "accommodating". Eventually, we agreed move back the schedule a half-hour later to relax the concern a little bit. What needs to be said about John Miller, the guitar teacher? Five Stars (*****), what else!
I began classical guitar lessons over a year ago and Michael has taught me more about music than I ever expected to learn. I enjoy my lessons bi weekly and have even begun taking drum lessons with Michael
Ryan is currently teaching my fraternal twins the acoustic guitar. The lessons take place in his home where he has a studio. He is a nice, young man. He is very talented and has been playing for about 10 years and because of that, I know he is well trained. He is easy to get along with and takes his time. He really cares about his teaching. My twins like going to get their lessons. And the most important thing to mevis that they are learning to play the acoustic guitar! He is a really good teacher and makes them feel like they are experts when they just started to play. Thank you, Ryan. Keep up the good work!
I have had guitar lessons from Reggie Chavez now for over four years. I started with Reggie without any knowledge or previous training on guitar at the age of 58 . Reggie has literally opened a new door to me to the wonderful experience of the playing a musical instrument. I have learned the fundamentals and then learned how to play songs. Reggie has inspired me to play live with other guitarists confidently. Best of all, Reggie instructs in a way that is relaxed, and gives me constructive feedback in a reassuring way, never harsh or in a way I feel bad. He is the best !
Quick and easy to coordinate piano lessons for my six year old.
Maryanne worked with me to explore the level of guitar that I wanted to acheive, and encouraged me to develop further. Her skills at guitar was inspiraitonal and her personal interaction was engaging. I would recommend her highly to anyone want to learn about the guitar and imparove thier skill set.
I'm learning finger style guitar. I had no experience reading music and playing guitar. Roger taught me to read music, proper technique, chord progressions. Now I can play simple songs with confidence. I'm continuing lessons with Roger Paull Guitar and learning more complicated pieces. I recommend Roger Paull Guitar to beginners and experience guitarist who want to improve their technique.
I have taken vocal lessons and songwriting coaching from Michael Daniel. In addition he has produced a few songs for me. Besides being an excellent, patient instructor with an unparalleled knowledge of rock and pop music, he makes me sound gooooooood. Very kind, ethical instructor.
Alex has really made an impression on my 7 yo son and he has only had two lessons. He practices guitar nearly every day and is showing me how to play without getting my thumb lasered off. (This is apparently what happens if one’s thumb is visible above the neck). Alex is very good with my son even though his attention span is short. He is showing him the correct way to hold and play the guitar and my son is really enjoying the lessons. So far, Alex has been very conscientious and reliable. I would certainly recommend him as a guitar instructor.
I guess the best way to describe my experience with Randy is that it was pleasurable and inspiring. I had taken guitar lessons with another instructor, and was always struck by how mechanical the lessons were. It was obvious the instructor was only there as a means of picking up some extra cash. He was a skilled musician, but didnt really seem to be into what he was doing. When I began taking lessons from Randy, it became immediately obvious that Randy had a passion for music. The lessons were presented in a relaxed atmosphere, and were tailored specifically for my level of proficiency. Probably the best recommendation I could provide is that I always looked forward to the next session, and really felt that Randy had made a tremendous impact on my guitar skills, but also on my appreciation of music in general.
My son age 9 started taking guitar lessons from Rena a year ago. He can read any music and play almost anything she puts in front of him, because of the great teacher/musician she is. She dedicated to my child's education in life. Thank you Rena -----------Chrisdena
I went to two other guitar teachers and never learned as quickly as I did with Ryan. I really enjoyed how fun and easy he made learning guitar and I will definitely be continuing lessons with him.

I offer drum lessons. I've been teaching students of all ages, from beginner to advanced, drawing from my many years of professional experience in the studio and live playing as well as touring. We combine what the student is interested in (more so for advanced) and what they need work on. To get you playing with less effort, more control, better ideas, on top of a very solid groove, I am using traditional books and years of teaching experience. I also offer music lessons, covering beginning piano. The student learns how to read and play notes, rhythms, chords, melodies and scales. I also teach bass guitar. The students will learn to read rhythms, notes on instrument and scales, approach to good technique, articulation and read tab and standard music.
The services I offer are as follows: * Guitar classes * Guitar training * Guitar instruction: bass and lead * Guitar ideas * Guitar consulting
Whether you're an advanced player looking to expand your music or a hungry beginner, I will teach you all styles of music from Abba to Zappa. We will also cover live performance setups, songwriting, gear and FX, music theory, and much more!
Being a professional touring and recording artist gives me insight and experiences that average guitar teachers cant pass on to there students.
I teach basic and intermediate guitar. I also teach classical and folk technique. I can teach you to strum along, Travis pick, read notes and tablatures. I can help you find an instrument that fits you, and your needs. If I can't teach you what you need, then I can find someone who can. I've been playing and teaching for 30 years.
I focus on what the individual student wants to learn in the long term and guide him on their path to achieving those goals.
