Jimmi is a joy. He is energetic, off-hand, and ready to move constantly. His knowledge of the ukulele, guitar, and piano was impressive and came out in his teaching, making me both trust him and want to know more. Further, his teaching style builds on each other and he is always ready with praise and critique to tell you that you're on the right track and capable of more. I had a lot of fun at my consultation and already feel like I'm better equipped. I can't wait for my first official lesson!

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!

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!

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.

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.

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 !

Maryanne is a wonderful classical guitar teacher. She is very talented on this instrument and teaches in such a professional manner. She's extremely patient and helpful and even willing to answer calls and texts during non-lesson times if I have a question about a piece of music that I'm working on. She takes into consideration the types of music that I want to play and yet makes sure that I have the basic techniques to play correctly. I highly recommend Maryanne as a classical guitar teacher.

I took guitar lessons from Glen for around four years, and I am thoroughly satisfied with what he has provided me. Glen’s style of teaching isn't out of the book or one dimensional what so ever. He incorporates what you need to learn, while letting you choose what you want to learn, allowing you to keep constant interest in learning the instrument. Glen also pushes the student to explore different musical realms, allowing their musical mind to grow beyond what it would usually gravitate towards. Besides his vast musical knowledge, he is a very approachable guy, very easy to talk to, and he has a great sense of humor, which for me was relieving and made the lessons even more fun. I couldn't imagine having had someone else guide me on my musical journey. Glen opened my mind and helped me look at things differently. He is a phenomenal teacher, and I am extremely happy that he was my instructor.

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 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.
