My son (7 years old) loves going to his lessons. Jimmy is animated, fun, gives age-appropriate instruction, and is extremely versatile, adaptive, and knowledgeable. We love the YouTube videos that Jimmy provides for us after lessons (video of the lesson), and how proactive he is in catering to my son's musical goals and interests. Pleasure to work with; Jimmy is professional and passionate about teaching. Highly recommend.
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!
Mr. D was my music teacher in elementary school and in high school. He taught me not only how to play multiple instruments, read music, understand time signatures and rhythm, he opened my eyes to one of the most wonderful, influential things in my life. Music. He pushed me to better my abilities as a musician and as a person. I never knew how many different, eclectic, beautiful sounds were out there until he played them for us in class. I fell in love with jazz, funk, disco, rock, classical, the list goes on. I still listen to the songs we played with excitement and affinity today. I even pluck the bass lines now and again for nostalgia's sake. I consider Gil Donatelli to be one of the most understanding, knowledgeable, fun, motivating people I have ever met. I consider him a friend and I'm lucky to have had him as a teacher. Craig Barter
Dave has a unique way of getting the student up to speed quickly on the basics of playing the guitar. Once you master the basics then Dave helps the student navigate down the path they want to go with the guitar. I highly recommend Dave as a guitar teacher as he results in the student having speed, simplicity, and self-confidence.
Do not hesitate to start your musical journey with East Mesa School of Guitar. I have been taking adult lessons for about 6 months. There are high school students in the class before me, and accomplished players in the class after. Ty and his staff bring both a professionalism and passion that I have seen in very few instructors. Although the lessons are in a group setting, all of my individual needs and goals are addressed. Through their teaching methods and enthusiasm, Ty and Fred have created an environment where practicing and lessons are the highlight of my day, rather than something I “have to do”. You will be playing music from your first session on! Ty and Fred have been phenomenal instructors, and Melissa has handled all business transactions flawlessly. Five stars for EMSOG is not enough!
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 !
Mike is an amazing guitar instructor. He has a vast knowledge in all aspects of guitar and bass. His teaching methods are amazing and he inspires his students to challenge themselves. Mike, believes in his students and wants to see each one of them succeed.
My children have been taking piano lessons at Kirk's Studio before it even became a studio. Kirk has grown this studio to be a very exciting place to take lessons of all sorts. Since he moved into the studio, he added to his piano lessons many more opportunities. He has started show choirs, guitar, violin, cello, voice lessons and more. He has helped create awesome Rock Bands who have competed in Rock Band competitions and played at the Rock n' Roll Marathon. The studio has expanded from the Scottsdale location to Mesa and Desert Ridge. The Showcase performances are amazing every year and something that even those who don't participate would enjoy attending. Kirk is very creative and continues to come up with new ideas every year. He makes all the kids feel so special! All in all even though the lessons are more costly than others, the opportunities and the quality of lessons are worth the price. It is a one stop shopping kind of place. AND the owners are AMAZING people to boot! LHolgate
Michael Calve is a brilliant improvisational musician with no inhibitions when it comes to crossing genres. His fearless approach to the bass, music in genera and life is truly inspirational. Make sure to check him out if you get the chance!
Jamison has been an incredible teacher (& friend) since I moved here and started taking bass lessons. His patience, wit, and innovation in making the practice truly accessible has brought my playing to a whole new level! Highly recommend him - make time for music!
I received lessons on bass guitar from Glenn and was playing simple root and fifth country songs after the first lesson. He was able to easily connect my music knowledge from voice and piano to the bass guitar. Not only does he teach but he provides music venues with jams and showcases to help his students experience performing. He is a good teacher.
Thank you Bryan for your time and flexibility you have given to us when having drum lessons. Our son Robert has grown so much in learning drums. You have always challenge Roberts abilities in a fun and exciting manner. Not only are you a talented musician, you are a down-earth and friendly person. It has been a great experience for all of us.
Corey is the bass player in my band and we primarily play blues, classic rock and jazz. Not only does Corey show professionalism in his playing style, but he is also very punctual and responsive to feedback. Given that he has 10+ of years with the bass, I would highly recommend Corey for bass lessons!
I took beginning bass lessons from Jeff 10 years back for a year or so. I am an old dog and he was able to teach me. The knowledge he shared with me has taken me pass my goals. I still review some of the material he shared. I sometimes think I should take more lessons. I now get calls to play professionally. thanks Jeff.
I teach from a real world, blue collar, working man's perspective. You want to play, not be mired in study material. You want to experience the joy of music, not the labor involved. We work together to create a fun learning environment and put you on the fast track to playing what you want to play, how you want to play it.
I am one person teaching multiple children on multiple instruments. I get siblings to play music together and absolutely love it. I have abundant proof of typical results that i get at the website provided. I have many, many more youtube channels filled with my students videos. Getting one child to play numerous instruments is my forte.
Are you sick of playing your bass with a bow? And sick of only being able to play with classical music? Come to Psychobilly slap and learn how to play like a man. I teach Rockabilly, Psychobilly, and blues style for upright only. I don't offer lessons for orchestra students.
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 provide musical instruction to musicians, from beginner to intermediate, who are looking to increase their own skills as well as solidify their core strengths and abilities on the guitar and/or the bass.
I'm a renowned classical guitarist who provides guitar and violin lessons for students of all ages. I have a PhD in classical guitar from Arizona State University and plenty of teaching experience.
I provide bass English or Spanish classes for beginners, medium or advanced. I teach bossanova, bolero, balada and rock Latino.
