I had my first lesson with Sven and I can say that he is an awesome teacher. I learned the basics of guitar and 7 chords, all in the first class. He is very patient and encouraging. I am happy that I decided to start learning guitar with him. Looking forward to my upcoming lessons.

Jordan is a great guitar teacher. He's been playing guitar for years, and is very knowledgeable. In the few months of lessons that I've been going to my knowledge of how music works has gotten so much better. I have a lesson every week and my playing has been getting substantially better. Would definitely recommend Jordan.

As this is my first guitar instructor, I can't really compare Lance to others. But what I can say is that even as a guitar newbie, I can feel his passion of music through the lessons and that I got a lot more out of the 45 minutes than I ever did trying to learn guitar on my own!

Chris is awesome! I’ve learned and improved quickly with his lessons. He is also very skilled with technology and makes his virtual guitar lessons even better than in-person ones. I highly recommend giving him a try.

I've had 2 lessons with David so far, and they've been great. He's been a very encouraging teacher, and he adapts his teaching to my learning progress. I'm planning to continue with the lessons and am excited to learn guitar!

I’ve been taking lessons with Andi for 2 months now and he’s incredible. He’s patient, organized and really responsive. I feel I’ve progressed a lot and I appreciate after each lesson he sends structured feedback notes and homework. I highly recommend Andy to anyone that’s looking for a guitar instructor.

Andrew is a very professional guitar player and teacher with proper training and lots of knowledge. I learned a lot from our one hour session and feel confident about practicing more to become a good player. I will have more lessons with him in the future and I would recommend him for others who want to learn classical guitar style! The pieces he played were all beautiful!

We started with Dan a couple months ago, he is teaching my 8yo daughter guitar. She had no previous experience with guitar or music. It has always be so hard to have her stick to anything but this time she is always looking forward to her next lesson. If you will ask her what she thinks of Dan, she would say:"He is amazing" Dan is a professional, with a great personality and a huge amount of patience to teach my very distracted child. She is learning! Dan's lessons are structured and adapted to her. I would highly recommend Dan to anyone.

My first lesson with Sven was informative and fun. Prior to meeting with him, I had only watched a couple of videos on guitar. I learned 8 chords and a blues progression, which I'm looking forward to practicing. Wonderful first experience.

I can't say enough good things about my lessons with Matt. I attempted to learn the guitar a few times in the past, but I found it frustrating and gave up. Matt and I are working at a pace that feels good to me. As a beginner, this has has kept me from getting discouraged. I look forward to our lessons, and I look forward to practicing. I am so happy that I found him, and I highly recommend his lessons.

Lance was a great guitar instructor, and was super easy to work with. He tried to tailor lessons to my interests and spent time making sure I had my fundamentals down. Not only was he a great teacher, also an awesome guy to hang out with overall!

Dan's been a fantastic guitar teacher over the last several months. I've been seeing solid improvement week over week due to his lessons. He does a great job of breaking down the complexities of music theory and keeping things light and fun.

Dan was excellent. First and foremost he was on time! He also was very good about switching gears to meet me at my level of knowledge which wasn't much. Ive signed up for 5 more lessons with him and hope to continue to improve my guitar plsaying.

I have has several guitar teachers over the years, and Z is by far the best I've worked with. I am essentially starting from square one, and Z is very patient, while also challenging me to learn. Lessons are well thought out and impactful. Would highly recommend!

David has been super responsive and fun to work with. We're trying to get a few more lessons on the calendar for the new year, but even in a short time he helped me explore some tangible ideas for regaining some of my old confidence on the guitar and better understanding music theory foundations. Highly recommend!

My little son is having the guitar lesson with Andrew, he loves him so much! Andrew is very responsive and professional and he’s very patient with my kid. He goes above and beyond. He assigns homework for my son to practice and play together for next session. He made his own song and showed to my son, my son loves it! He’s also available for only lesson now since everyone is sheltered from home! Andrew is also very flexible to accommodate your schedule! Thank you Andrew!

I was sold on working with Paul once I saw the video in his profile. Seamlessly playing guitar on all those music styles told me he had impressive musical skills/talents and could play a wide range - and his charisma/personality shown through - and within the first few minutes of my first lesson all this was confirmed. I'd say he is first and foremost a musician and then a guitarist. He's professional, patient, encouraging, and intuitive (picking up on how I learn/process). Within a few minutes after each lesson he sends a concise summary, worksheets from the lesson, and detailed notes for my homework/practice. Each lesson has been enjoyable, insightful, and just has a great flow. I wasn't sure what to expect from "virtual" lessons I'm impressed but it's been rather seamless and feel like I'm learning/getting just as much if I were taking in-person lessons and productive. Total value for the cost. I enthusiastically recommend working with Paul - no doubt.

Sven is awesome. He is a highly talented musician, who's kind, encouraging, and super patient. I felt very comfortable asking him questions, and I never felt rushed. He listens very intently, and is very eager to teach you how to play. I can't wait to get more lessons from him. I would highly recommend him for anyone wanting to learn guitar!

I've been playing guitar for a number of years, but realised I could only get so far without a teacher. I've been taking lessons from Jaime for almost a year now and I've seen a drastic improvement in a number of aspects of my playing. Jaime really takes the time to ensure that he corrects your technique, ensuring you aren't hampering your playing. Furthermore he puts the right focus on ancillary aspects of guitar playing. For example, my ear training and theory knowledge have gotten so much better thanks to his methodology. If you're looking for someone to take your playing up a few notches, Jaime is the guy!
