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've worked with Ryan on projects in the studio and on stage. The value he brings is insane. When starting a project I look for someone who will go well beyond my expectations. Ryan does that with everything he's involved in, so it's no surprise that he brings all that value when teaching guitar.

So far my 7-year-old son has only been to 5-6 lessons, but it has been a very positive experience. Ryan is sweet and patient and encouraging, and my son is enjoying learning the guitar. He can't wait to go to his lesson every week! I can't wait until he can shred :-).

I have been working with Bryan for 2 years now. In that period of time, not only have we done 2 amazing projects, but i have learned so much from him. He has taken me under his wing and helped me grow as an artist. I'm now proficient in my guitar playing skills as well as song writing and even singing. Bryan has taught me much, and he is a great and easy person to work with. You will definitely receive excellent quality in whatever you are working on with him.

I am completely new to playing the guitar so it was important for me to find someone who is patient and understanding. Bryan is very friendly and made the environment comfortable. I wasn't afraid to make mistakes when we had our lesson which is really good because it helps me learn faster. He has a lot of experience in the music industry and knows what he is talking about. Highly recommend him!

I began taking guitar lessons with Michael Singer in 1999 when I was thirteen years old and continued taking lessons for about three years. Today, I am a professional musician in Rochester, NY, performing concerts and as of December 11th 2013 I have completed my doctorate in music. There is little doubt that if I had to name the most influential person in my career as a musician, it would be Michael. His passion, commitment, and skills as a teacher laid the foundation for everything else that I have done. He was encouraging but demanding, selfless in his pursuit to help me attain my goals. When I decided that I wanted to do music professionally, he took that seriously and taught me to understand the amount of work that it would require and guided me in that, both technically and musically. Essentially, he initiated me into the rigorous but wonderful world of professional musicians. To this day, Michael and I stay in touch. He has never lost interest in what I was doing or where I was and has supported me in every decision I have made. I wouldn’t trade my time with Michael for the world and I couldn’t recommend a better guitar teacher. Laudon S.

I am 30 years old, and just started taking guitar lessons a month ago. I wanted to learn the guitar inside and out, and become the best that I possibly can. I am beyond satisfied with Mike's musical talent, passion, and ability to teach. He clearly is not just a guitar teacher, but also touches your heart. I personally was not just looking for a typical guitar teacher, but someone who would really play a big part in my growth as a musician, and he has done that for me.

I am brand new to learning the guitar at 57 yrs old. Dave has been instrumental in providing me the mechanics, the lessons and the steps to actually be able to understand the guitar, notes, chords, & strumming. Most importantly how to “play”. His instructional method is about having fun and truly leaning to play “songs that you want to play. Blues to Classic Rock. I would recommend him for beginners to advanced guitar enthusiast. He will tell you though as with anything practice, practice, practice is the key.

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.

Bonnie Lou serenaded all the family as we celebrated our Mother's 90th birthday Sunday June 18. In keeping with our Spanish theme Bonnie Lou entertained us with classical Spanish guitar tunes and exceptional ukulele music. We even sang Happy Birthday to Mom as she strummed the ukulele. Because of Bonnie Lou our Mother's birthday was wonderful and memorable.

John is an Amazing teacher! I have been playing guitar for over 10 years and decided to take some lessons to improve my abilities. The moment I sat down with John I knew I could learn much more from him as my guitar and bass teacher. His knowledge and abilities reflect well the thirty years of experience that he has. Not only is he an incredible guitarist, he is very knowledgeable about music and is able to explain it in a way that is relevant and easy to understand. Whether you are a beginner or you just want to improve in some areas, John is the music teacher you are looking for. I highly recommend him after taking some lessons with him for the past three months.

I am very new to learning guitar, and I have to say John had me playing notes the 1st day. I really enjoy John as my teacher. John is easy going, and he really makes learning fun. I hired John to give me lesson twice a week and I always cant wait till my next lesson, to see what he is going to teach me. If John can teach me, then he can teach anyone. I would highly recommend hiring John if your looking for a easy going teacher that has years of experience.

Brett is the consummate recording professional in the truest sense of the word. As producer and engineer of my recently recorded album, Double Down On Love, he brought his vast musical knowledge and meticulous technical skill to the table at every session and I could not be more pleased with the results. Though classically trained on the guitar, he possesses eclectic musical tastes, all which have added tremendous color and vibrancy to my music. Without reservation, I highly recommend Brett Lashley to you for your recording needs. And should you desire guitar lessons, Brett's an outstanding instructor as well. Five plus stars for Brett Lashley.

Brett is fantastic! Our 7 year old had his first lesson today and Brett was extremely patient, positive, and kept the momentum of a 7 year old brain going. I know Brett's methods and knowledge, and positive encouragement, will reflect on our son learning the guitar! Don't hesitate to hire Brett!

Reggie is an amazing guitar instructor! I have been taking guitar lessons from him for the past 5 1/2 years. He taught me how to play both the acoustic and electric guitar. He always goes over every song that we learn step by step and makes sure that I understand what I'm playing. Through his knowledge and experience as a guitarist himself, he makes his lessons so much more fun and easy! When I want to learn a new song and am completely lost, I always turn to my guitar instructor, Reggie Chavez! Overall, he is an outstanding guitar instructor and I would definitely recommend him for other that want to take guitar lessons!

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 !

I hired Gerry for my mother's funeral service, after another musician I had been working with didn't work out. And at the last minute, when I was in a pinch and getting stressed, Gerry graciously jumped in to help me out. Gerry performed amazingly (I even saw the Catholic priest tapping his feet and moving!) Gerry made the service a great experience for my family and I deeply appreciate what he did for us. Gerry is a genuinely nice individual and a very kind and compassionate person. He made an impact on all my family members with his heartfelt performance. I would HIGHLY recommend Gerry for any musical needs! Awesome person!

My Husband and I chose Gerry for our music lessons and we're very happy we did! My husband is learning guitar and I am learning keyboard. He is very proficient and knowledgable in both. His approach to teaching is fun and unconventional... meaning I wasn't just sitting there trying to read notes that made no sense to me. I learned quite a bit in one lesson and am actually enjoying the learning process. Thanks, Gerry!

I have been receiving lessons from Paull for awhile. He is masterful in his craft and possess all the tools a teacher must have to enhance the learning ability of the student. You immediately feel that you WILL be able to learn guitar because of his teaching method and easy going demeanor. He works well with any age group and style. You could not ask for or find a better instructor. Highly recommend Paull because of first hand experience!

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.

Roger comes to my house each week to give my 12-year-old son acoustic guitar lessons. He is extremely patient and my son, actually all of us just love him. Within a lesson or two Roger had him doing scales and reading music, he's now playing songs and sounds pretty good. Highly recommend Roger to any musician!

"To me being an awesome guitarist and an excellent instructor are two different things. Somebody who is both is a genius in my dictionary. Fortunately for me, Michael is that rare genius and is extremely professional. I rate my instructors on the following characteristics: * Knowledge of, expertise, and enthusiasm for the subject matter and teaching * Good organization of subject matter and course * Effective communication * Positive attitudes toward students * Fairness in evaluation * Flexibility in approaches to teaching I am very picky about the quality of lessons I get. I have tried various instructors in the past, and some of them I couldn't continue with, for more than a couple of weeks. A few of them were good in teaching music that they know best, some were only good in certain genre. You throw anything at Michael (rock, metal, jazz, blues, funk etc.), and his ears will pick anything and everything within the human audible range. If its played in the record, (it will be on) your tab sheet. The music you will play is as accurate as it can get. Not only he writes accurate tabs, he can hear what effects are being used. His knowledge about audio engineering is vast too, and can help you achieve the tone you like the most. His gear recommendations are excellent. He is a great guitarist and his attention to technical details of playing is unmatched. His approach is very scientific to everything. If he is telling you something, believe me, there is a reason behind it. I can go on and on raving about his instructions and what he has to offer, and I am able to do this with utmost confidence because of the vast improvements in my playing style, my understanding of music and gear, and the ease at which I am able to play more complex music within a period of just 2 years. All in all this is a great product offering for a very decent price. Thanks Michael."

Michael Daniel is everything you'd ever want in a voice coach. If you're a beginner, he accepts you where you are without judgment and builds from there, giving you confidence every step of the way. He breaks down songs into elements you didn't even know existed, and teaches you how to sing effectively in a well-thought-out, methodical way that's also a lot of fun. It's amazing how fast you can start to see progress if you follow his instructions. I've been taking lessons from Michael for about seven months now. I appreciate his patience, his talent, his willingness to answer my questions, his sense of humor, and his total dedication to my musical education. I look forward to my lessons every single week!
