Michele P.
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 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.

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!

I've enrolled in guitar lessons with Thomas. He has been easy to communicate with, and he is encouraging and reassuring (I'm a beginner). I look forward to my first lesson this week.

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.

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 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!

Mike Jennings

    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.

    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.

    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.

      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!

        Teri is wonderful!!! She has been teaching guitar and piano to my son (who is autistic) and piano to my daughter for over 5 years now. We originally selected her because she has a very strong background in Music Therapy, and a lot of experience in working with those with special needs. She is very patient and understanding, and my children love their music lessons with her each week. Teri comes to our house and she is ALWAYS on time. She is also flexible in scheduling and is willing to do make-ups if something comes up. We highly recommend Teri for music therapy and lessons!
