I first met Paul about two months ago while I was looking for guitar lessons. Since then I have been improving a lot in both my theory as well as my playing- thanks to Paul's efforts. I am pleased with the service he provides and the experience that he generously uses to help.
Omar was great at helping me understand music theory. Being a beginner, he showed me how to break down strumming patterns and chords so that it would be easier for me to practice and progress.
I have been taking guitar lessons from Kimberly via Skype for about six years. I really like her teaching style which is systematic and focused. She tailors her lessons to my goals and time. Her teaching method is to help you gain insight and skill through patient practice of gradually changing exercises. She doesn't snow you with theory, but presents it to you in digestible amounts just when it will make sense. She welcomes questions and I always learn from our discussions. She has led me to learn techniques on the guitar that I was absolutely sure I could never learn. For something to seem impossible at the start, to seem possible a week later and to be routine a month later is amazingly uplifting. Kimberly's background was first a life of teaching herself and playing gigs with all kinds of bands in all kinds of places. She has also deepened and strengthened her knowledge by gaining academic degrees in guitar and jazz and also by studying under masters. This gives her an incredibly deep understanding of learning and teaching music, an immense skill in playing guitar, and an appreciation for the challenges of playing with other people. I especially love her continued enthusiasm for guitar and that she really enjoys teaching. I have found in Kimberly the best of teachers and highly recommend her without reservation.
Matthew is very knowledgeable an knows how to bring the information down to my level, very basic, step by step, which is exactly what I needed. He also challenges me to go beyond what I think I am capable of and I surprise myself. I am excited about my progress and can't wait to see what the year holds. I would highly recommend Matthew for beginning to advanced guitar. Thank You, Matthew
At the age of 9 my son Julian started to take group guitar lessons from Pat. After that session I ask Pat if he does private lessons, he said yes but its at La Puente. So from Chino Hills I took my son to La Puente every Saturday for the next 5 years. He is very good with kids and I highly recommend him. My son now 18 enjoys writing songs & performing.
Lucas is a very talented musician and teacher. He has taught guitar to both of my kids for the past 5 years. He's patient, fun and willing to tailor lessons to the individual's needs and personal goals. My 13 year old son (who has taken lessons with Lucas since 2nd grade) has learned to read notes, play chords and how to improvise on the guitar through his lessons with Lucas. He plays in our church band and does very well.
Kevin is the best guitar teacher out there who gave me the tools I needed to go on to be a Music Major. He works with your goals as a starting or experienced musician and explains and helps with everything so well. He goes out of his way and really made guitar lessons a highlight of my day. HIGHLY recommended!
Steve is a wonderful teacher. When I started lessons I had been playing for a while but I needed guidance on where to go from just basic chords and strumming patterns. Steve tailored my lessons to the genres I wanted to study while giving me exercises that would better my study no matter what direction I chose to go. We even started coupling the guitar lessons with banjo lessons! Steve is well versed in so many genres and instruments and on top of that, he is a friendly, patient and fun person who communicates well and is easy to get along with.
I exchanged a few messages with Laura about the possibility of taking guitar lessons. She responded quickly and answered all of my questions. Unfortunately, I am only in town for a short amount of time, and things did not work out. I definitely recommend Laura if you're looking for someone who is kind, professional, and easy-going!
Juan is awesome and really seems to love the art of teaching. He can explain a technique and then play examples on his guitar. Just my first lesson but I really am looking forward to the next one !!!
I took guitar lessons from Tim for about a year, and Tim was my favorite guitar teacher. He is a very passionate teacher with a love for music. While I was learning with him he encouraged me to learn music theory and introduced me to many other genres of music to learn and play. While teaching he was very helpful and patient with any problems I had. I would recommend Tim to anyone wanting to learn how to play.
I have been taking guitar lessons from Brian for a couple of years and I am very pleased. I am in my late 50s and took lessons from several instructors and learned mostly power chords and memorized some riffs. With Brian I have progressed to a thorough understanding of the pentatonic and major scales allowing me to solo and improvise. Brian is very knowledgeable and adaptable to my learning style. He has incorporated other reference materials I have in addition to recommending references he is familiar with.
He is a great teacher! I love getting lessons from him. I understand music better because of his teaching, and I also know how to play guitar now! Thanks! :)
Between YouTube, my own line of audio lessons and private lessons, I've helped millions of aspiring singers, pianists, guitarists and songwriters achieve their goals in music. I love what I do!
I give my full attention to each individual student, monitor their progress, and wholeheartedly want them to understand music and enjoy it in their lives. I give detailed instruction in playing the guitar and musical skills in general. I can teach others to play in various styles ranging from jazz to classical, folk and blues. I cater to individuals and if you want to become a musician rooted in the disciplines of music reading, theory, and ear training, I can make that happen for you. If you only want to physically be able to play the songs you enjoy, that is not a problem. Ultimately, students will not succeed very much unless they enjoy what they are doing. I am constantly trying to understand the students and teach them in a way that works best for them.
I have been playing for 51 years. I guarantee I can teach you how to play the guitar. I will teach you how to make chords and play songs from the first day.
Hi, my name is Ezequiel prado. It's really simple, I give my students the beginners lessons, and basic skills to continue on their own. I don't let my students down. I guarantee that my students will learn how to play.
I teach the basic fundamentals of guitar and bass, electric and acoustic. My lessons are to teach people the freedom and creativity of music to expand their musical talents (of all ages).
I am a self-taught guitarist, but I have taken courses in music theory and ear training during college. I have been playing the guitar since I was 13 years old. My goal is to help a student learn scales, chords, and rhythm. I do not teach how to read music. I teach students how to understand the theory behind music and how to take a creative approach towards it. My lessons are for people who want to learn the guitar for recreational purposes.
I teach using tabualture and hands on methods for faster retention.
I've been teaching guitar for the past 10 years. Currently, I have a bachelor of music and can teach in the style of classical, rumba, and popular rock music.
