We decided to chose Brian for my teenage daughter's beginning guitar lessons due to his willingness to teach her the type of songs that she wanted. Right away he connected with her and her music. He taught her the theory behind playing guitar as well as teaching her the tricks and skills of how to play the guitar. His practices were enjoyable and not just rote. She learned very quickly and therefore stayed excited about learning. Brian was always very complementary and encouraging. Brian also helped us buy useful equipment like a tuner, etc. She always felt safe and comfortable. We would highly recommend Brian as a guitar teacher.

Sid gave guitar lessons to my daughter (14). He was recommended to us by a friend who has a 12 year old son that Sid taught. He is a great teacher and I can tell he is good at relating to kids of all ages. It is obvious, Sid has an appreciation and a passion for music and I would highly recommend him to anyone!

I decided to take guitar lessons 2 years ago after trying to learn on my own with limited success. I tried group lessons and got a little better but was limited by other students who didn't practice. I was fortunate to find Paul after talking with several teachers. Paul was willing to teach what I wanted to learn and push me to get better. Paul has exceeded my expectations. I'm better and having more fun playing guitar than I ever hoped. I highly recommend Paul for anyone wanting to learn guitar.

Going to Peaceland Music has been a very outstanding experience. My teacher, John, is very knowledgable with guitar, piano, and overall music theory. John is a very funny guy and I'm glad I've been taking guitar lessons with him for the past year and a half. He's made learning guitar very fun and interesting. Aside from learning scales and theory, you also can choose a song and John can work on it with you and help you make your performance of it better. But make sure to practice the theory and scales he gives you! You will fall behind very quick, because the lessons build off of what you previously learned. John is very good at working with people at a variety of different levels. It doesn't matter if you're beginning, intermediate, or advanced, he'll work with you at your level and help build on what you know.

We've had a wonderful experience with Steve! He took on the crazy, odd challenge of teaching guitar to a preschooler with enthusiasm and went above and beyond researching songs and methods online between every class and bringing personalized materials to each lesson. Then when we decided to switch to ukulele he went out and bought himself one and taught himself to play so he could teach my daughter. Truly an incredible teacher!

Beginner electric bass guitar lessons, 1 hour per week, at Rancho Canyon Music. I have been taking lessons with Lou for two months. Lou is an experienced, knowledgeable, and patient instructor. Additionally, he is personable and has a good sense of humor which makes the lessons fun. Lou finds ways to easily relate a theory or technique to you in everyday terms. He is a formally trained musician who performs regularly for audiences. His training and regular performing, coupled with his teaching techniques makes him my first choice for music instruction. Lou arrives on time and is ready begin working with you, evidence he values your time as well. Lou goes above and beyond for his students by providing in class resources, useful online content, and instructional online videos. All of which I have found helpful and not readily found in other music instructors. Lou can quickly analyze what is happening and provide you with helpful input to help you understand and improve. It is clear to me Lou understands the teaching process. He explains things in a logical order, using building blocks of learning. I would highly recommend Lou to all of my family and friends. An hour lesson is filled with easily digestible information and practical application. My understanding and enjoyment of playing my bass guitar has been energized working with Lou.

We have a child diagnosed with slight autism. We decided to get a private teacher at home due to the experience of a teacher bullying him in a music school located in Chino. Mr. Garcia has all the patience in teaching our son and he knows how to adjust his teaching lessons with him. Our son is always excited to get music lessons with him. Mr. Garcia is also teaching our 18 y/o daughter guitar. And she is always happy and contented with his teaching techniques. Thank you for doing a great job with my children.

Chris is an amazing teacher. He really doesn’t like to mess around. Learning how to play the guitar is not an easy task at all, but after just a few lessons with Chris I can guarantee that you’ll feel more confident in your ability.

I've been taking guitar lessons with Kimberly since the beginning of 2011. At the time I'd had several years of lessons using a traditional method on acoustic guitar and was looking for a teacher who could help me focus on electric blues rock and move me beyond my intermediate skill level. Kimberly has a real focus on and talent for teaching. My lessons are tailored to meet my interests. A large part of the lesson is devoted to learning her method for blues soloing--at least 5 approaches to improvisation and comping. After several years, I've come to see how these approaches interweave, complement each other and have become an intuitive part of my musical vocabulary. Also, because I expressed an interest, part of the lesson involves sight reading, learning blues and jazz theory, developing rhythmic playing sense, and learning a few favorite solos. Kimberly has an amazing ability to tab out and teach any song you give her. Which leads to the best part--after 6 months I was invited to play with one of her ensemble classes. While I was absolutely petrified with fear at the beginning, this has turned into one of the highlights of my week every week. It is just downright fun! It's a safe and forgiving environment where you can make mistakes and learn, or try things out that might flop, or turn into something cool. Every teacher and guitar magazine article all point to the need to play with other musicians to develop your skills and this is where Kimberly Allison really delivers. I feel that I could now sit in with other musicians and contribute. I give my highest recommendation for taking lessons with Kimberly.

Ivan is great... I've just had two lessons and am definitely continuing on!. I've never picked up a guitar, ever and am a complete novice adult. He's extremely patient, and has a thorough and complete knowledge of every aspect of the guitar. He guides you through (albeit clumsy attempts on my part) every aspect of playing, and spends time with you revisiting each chord until it rings out clear. I would highly recommend him on all levels!

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.

My two (2) kids go to this school for Piano Lessons. It's a great school with teachers who care and they even got (ONE) of my kids to actually play correctly and she now likes playing the piano. They are strict but have real concern for the students and offer a great environment to excel. I would recommend Donna Lee and her Music School anytime. A+++++++

Both of my children have been taking lessons with Rachel for the past 3 years and she's been awesome! My daughter takes singing lessons and my son has been taking saxophone lessons, and they both love it! She's really professional and fun to work with. It's also been nice that she teaches a lot of instruments so we can have one teacher come to the house to teach both of the kids one after the other. I couldn't recommend her enough!

I take violin lessons at this school, and so far, they certainly have helped me improve on my skills, and have kept me motivated to continue practicing my instrument. It's a much more enriching experience when your lessons are one on one. I had been taking violin at school for 5 years, but taking lessons taught me that I still had a lot to learn. It's much easier to realize where your struggling and thereby improve on it quicker. I have to recommend this school to anyone seeking ways to improve their musical prowess!

Daniel has been giving my 10 year old son guitar lessons online for several months now and I couldn't be happier with our experience! The online lessons are extremely convenient for our busy lifestyle and Daniel's teaching technique has captured the attention of my busy body son. He's learned so much these past few months and he loves it! Thank you Daniel!

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.
