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 been wanting to take lessons for a while after trying to teach myself and failing. The location is perfect for me in Mesa and Ryan has been great so far. He has a very nice studio set up and is very patient. I have had two lessons so far and have already booked more for the next month. I would definitely recommend!

I had absolutely zero experience playing guitar so I was pretty nervous to start taking lessons. From the beginning, Ryan made me feel very comfortable and has been such a great teacher. He is super patient and always so positive & encouraging!

Let me compare taking bass guitar lessons with Michael, to trying to learn on my own. Simply put, it's like night and day. Trying to teach myself was a lesson in futility--I didn't know where to start. In just a couple months' worth of lessons with Michael, I've learned more quickly than I thought would have been realistic. Michael knows his stuff. He is very good at tailoring his lessons to each student's goals, in order to get the most out of the student in the least amount of time. More importantly than that, however, Michael keeps his lessons and the learning environment very open, encouraging, and non-judgmental. He offers personal insights on theory, as well as life in general at times, which makes lesson time much more fun and interesting. I would highly recommend Michael to anyone who is looking for quality instruction!

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 53 years old and just started guitar lessons with Best Guitar with no prior experience. Michael immediately put me at ease and is very positive and generous with praise and is not negative in any way. He explains what he teaches so that you know the "why" and not just the "what". I look forward to continuing my lessons with Michael and would recommend him to anyone.

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.

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.

John is well equipt on rhythm and lead guitar acoustic or electric as well as the bass. John has a great musical sensibility and is a very easy person to work with and a super nice guy!

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 a great teacher. Sadly, due to my work schedule, I have been unable to take lessons from him in over a month. Thankfully, he sent me away from my last lesson with a lot of material to keep me busy and practicing. I highly recommend him. He is a great teacher, a knowledgeable fellow, and after a lesson or two, can really gauge the lessons to your playing style and ability. Cheers.....AB.

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 !

Reggie is very patient. I had NO musical background: now I get it for the first time, and can at least pretend to play the bass guitar. Reggie let us work on whatever I was interested in, at my speed.

I am delighted to recommend Maryanne Kremer-Ames as a guitar teacher. She is simply wonderful. I feel that studying with her has made me not just a better guitarist but also a better musician, as my ear for music has steadily developed in a way that allows me to appreciate all kinds of music more deeply. After going through four guitar teachers in seven years, I finally found Maryanne and have never looked back. I can truly say that since studying with Maryanne, I have learned how to • Improve the quality of sound I get from my guitar • Get the most out of my practice time • Phrase the music I am learning so I am truly making music instead of just hitting the right notes • Conquer difficult passages by breaking them down into smaller chunks so I can more readily identify the underlying problem that is holding me back • Lock in the correct fundamentals of posture, hand position, fingernail shape, and so on that will improve my sound and increase my joy in playing • Prepare for playing in front of an audience As a teacher Maryanne is patient and easy to work with. She creates a pressure-free learning environment in which everything is adapted to my individual goals and needs. Thanks to her positive approach, I really enjoy the lessons – they actually offer relief from my daily stress! I can’t say enough good things about her as an instructor. She’s definitely the best guitar teacher I have ever had.

Learning guitar from Maryanne is a blessing. She's nice, patient, professional, and has her own approaches of teaching which I found very effective and inspiring. She is also a great person to talk to about cultures and musics or anything else. I enjoyed classes with her and it made my enjoy guitar even more!

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!

About

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.

I currently do some finger-picking but am a bit rusty, not having played much in many years. I am interested in learning some new ways of picking and expanding my repertoire of songs so that I could perform a couple of sets at a better-than-average level. Don't know much theory and am self-taught. Some theory would be helpful, but I'll probably never be a theory guy, so I'd like to focus mainly on learning new pieces and new picking patterns and approaches.
