Verified review

Before our son began guitar lessons with Jeff, he got very good, competent lessons from other private instructors as well as those affiliated with the very impressive ASU music department. But Jeff’s individualized approach has been decidedly different. Recognizing that our 10 year old has areas of music that motivate him to stay excited and engaged, he always keeps the fun parts as the backbone of the learning process. This past weekend, he eagerly and proudly showed me the importance of knowing a variety of scales (major, minor, mixolydian, pentatonic, blues, etc.) and how he can use them to create music of his own. Talk about impressive! We can’t recommend Jeff more highly!

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.

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!

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!

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.

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 was brand new to guitar when I started lessons with Richard. He is great at taking things at the pace you need and being patient with a new student. He is also very flexible with schedule and length of lessons, so you can work lessons into a busy schedule. His knowledge of music theory was evident in his instruction, and he imparted this information at appropriate times as I learned the practical side of playing. I enjoyed our lessons, as I felt like I made progress, but they were fun at the same time. Richard is very receptive of your input and the direction you want lessons to go. He'll focus on what you want to learn and the songs you want to learn. Overall, I was impressed with his skill and ability to teach, and would highly recommend him!

    I took lessons with Mike from age 11 through my senior year of high school. Mike provided me with a strong musical foundation so that I could continue to play guitar after my lessons were over. Some days we would just learn to play my favorite songs by ear. Other days we would spend time devoted to musical theory; building solos, running through scales, and general songwriting techniques. Any time that he was running late or had to cancel, he always gave myself or my parents plenty of notice. He always offered to make up missed lessons and was more than willing to reschedule if something came up. Even though I stopped taking lessons, I still use a lot of the material that Mike taught me for general reference. Mike helped take a growing love for music and turn it into a passion and talent, and I will always be thankful I took lessons with him!

    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.

    My 8 year old daughter started piano lessons at age 5. I wanted her to enjoy learning and not view it as work. Julie Ann is such a great instructor she was able to read my daughters personality and, in turn, tailor her teaching to my daughters natural pace. She doesn't push or force students to perform -- she engages them and makes them feel confident in their learning. Julie Ann keeps us informed on progress, learning strategies and helps us understand how to help our daughter continue learning during home practice times. I reccommend Scottsdale Studio of Music to students of all ages who are interested in learning an instrument.

    Richard (Rick) is a great teacher. He is willing to go the extra mile to enhance the learning experience. He even replaced the Guitar strings and installed a strap for my daughters guitar. I highly recommend Rick to anybody who is looking for a Guitar instructor in the Litchfield Park area.

      Both of my sons took piano lessons from Nick when they were kids. They've since grown and moved away, but when they come home to visit, my wife and I are always happily entertained by the beautiful duets they perform for us in the living room, the same room where years earlier they had those piano lessons with Nick. My oldest takes the role of pianist while the the younger plays his cello, which he took up in middle school. They are so good at it it's like going downtown to hear the Phoenix Symphony play (in fact, my youngest does play in a symphony and has toured as far away as Vietnam). Their musical ability and knowledge were inspired from the beginning by the lessons they had from Nick when they started out on their musical journey and we are so grateful for what he taught them and the influence he had on them. I myself took guitar lessons from Nick and really enjoyed it and learned a lot. I would have done much better if I didn't have to work all the time (my excuse for myself). But when I retire here in a few years, I'll need to pick it up again, and who better to turn to than the master himself.

      Rich did an excellent job playing at our wedding. Ours was a small outdoor ceremony with only a few guests, and Rich's guitar playing created a nice, romantic mood before the ceremony began. He also worked with the ceremony schedule to provide music during various parts in the middle of the ceremony, and he even played a "first dance" song at the end for my wife and I to dance to. If you're looking for a great classical guitar sound at your wedding or other event, choose Rich Merriman!

        I've taken piano lessons weekly from Teri for over 3 yrs. I was able to recover my meager former skills and happily acquired many new ones. I am 70, so I was a little nervous about my ability to learn; but, Teri paces the lessons to accommodate where you are in life and makes it fun! She is very knowledgeable and you know you are getting the best when she works with you. She is professional, punctual and extremely reliable, so you don't end up wasting time. I definitely would recommend her for "kids" of all ages--my grandchildren started with her at about 5yrs of age--just know it's never to late to learn:) And, it's good for the brain!!!!

        Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
