Paul is amazing!!!! He is so patient and supportive as an instructor. So pleased with my decision to hire Paul. He has a great relationship with my 6 year old and I am confident in his ability to teach her how to play the guitar. Paul is so awesome that I decided to take guitar lessons as well! Looking forward to making music with my daughter!!! Thank you Paul!!!
Brian is a great guitar instructor. He has a wide knowledge of different styles and a lot of instructive tips for beginner guitars. His setup is professional, he's able to evaluate and teach what you want to learn, and is very patient. I recommend him!
As a first-time guitar player, I thought I could just use the internet to figure out how to play. After a few months of YouTube videos, I wasn't making much progress beyond open chords and basic songs learning became mundane. As a new year resolution I've decided to find an instructor and after I started taking lessons with Steve, playing the guitar started to make sense. He is very patient and uses a practical teaching method, I feel more confident and enjoy learning to play the guitar. I still have a long way to go, but at least the foundation is building up. I would highly recommend Steve to anybody looking for a great instructor that is able to adjust to any skill level.
John is great person. Currently my daughter's are learning guitar and piano with the help of John. I am 43 years old and I am taking guitar lessons through John. Very polite and extraordinary knowledge about music. Cheers John!!!
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.
I have been a student with Kimberly for ten years. I have been taking blues guitar lessons from her weekly. Kim is extremely professional. She tailors her teaching to the students interest and playing style. She is very patient and often goes the extra mile to help students progress. I have been a dedicated student because of this. I have had the pleasure of playing guitar with some of her other students in ensemble classes who all give her praise for the way she conducts business and teaches her classes. I highly recommend Kimberly Allison of Starliner music to anyone wishing to develop their skills in music.
Hello, My name is Abigail. Im 11 years old and have been taking guitar lessons from Damien for about 2 years now. He has taught me how to read music. I have learned step by step, no rushing into music whatsoever. In the beginning of my lessons, Damien gave me a booklet/guitar notebook to record every lesson. My first lessons were basically getting to know music and my guitar. The next couple of lessons he began teaching me how to play simple songs like Twinkle-Twinkle, Happy Birthday and Mary Had a Little Lamb. Further on, Damien allowed me to choose a couple of my favorite songs, which he then taught me how to play. I definitely recommend any beginners to attend his lessons because you will not regret it.
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.
He is a knowledgable guitar/piano instructor and takes teaching seriously, but he also has a way of keeping lessons lively and fun. He has done well instructing my daughter on guitar.
Amazing guitar lessons! I am learning how to play stuff by Hendricks Beatles and Led Zeppelin and some other bands too. This guy is definitely the classic rock dude!
Mark's an awesome teacher - fun to work with, infinitely patient with beginner students, remarkably skilled in both electric and acoustic guitar. Really conveys his passion with the instrument and his love of the art -- if you're looking to get motivated, start here!
I have two nieces and one nephew. Taking lessons at home, my eldest niece started reading music, learning guitar and piano several days after her kindergarten ceremony. By the time she entered 6th grade she outperformed me in many areas even though I was also taking lessons from Ernest. He always shows great care in the process of learning, practicing, and mastering the instrument. My nephew ended up picking up the guitar and my youngest niece acquired the language of music & instruction possibly as early as her crawling under the keyboard and listening to her older sisters lessons over the years. By the time the youngest entered 1st grade she was composing legitimate piano pieces and all three kids eventually shined as the brightest music stars in their K-8 school. Ernest is sensitive to the needs and interests of the learner. Whenever possible he provides additional time. His foresight and attention to detail facilitates the maturation process and sustained growth available only through the delivery and mastery of his craft. My niece expressed gratitude by giving him drawings of the sun, clouds, hearts, trees and smiley faces beneath the words, tHANk yOu ErnSt. Grandma also happily made snacks and treats for Ernest. At this time I cant think of anything for Ernest to improve because the proof can be heard in the music. I will be more than happy to discuss our music lessons with ErnSt.
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.
I heard Brett perform with a group of musicians who were jamming and improvising. I was so impressed with what Bretts part added to the group that I looked him up later and asked if he gave guitar lessons. Inhad been looking for someone who could teach me to improvise. I was stoked to find that not only did he teach, but he worked at a music school as well. I was thrilled to be able to study with him, and amazed at all the stuff I had never been taught ( I've been playing for many years). He is incredibly patient, and has a very succinct and easy to understand was of explaining the theory part of the lessons. In only a few lessons my repertoire of tricks has gone up substantially and I look forward to more lessons.
Five years ago, when my daughters were 6 and 8 years old, they received guitars for Christmas. They had one lesson at a local guitar store, but the teacher talked to them as if they were adults and the information went way over their heads. They were frustrated and lost. Then, we found Aaron and everything changed. His love for guitar and teaching shined through, from the moment we walked in the door. Aaron's teaching methods and personality were perfect. My little girls were hooked and couldn't wait until their lessons each week. They were motivated to practice and excited to perform at the end of each session. The pace at which they excelled was astounding. With Aaron's background in so many genres, they could experiment with different styles of music. When they turned 10 and 12 years of age, they decided that they wanted to audition for our local art school's guitar program. Aaron worked with them on their classical audition pieces over the months and they were both accepted! Now they are 11 and 13 years old and are still in love with guitar. They continue to attend the art school in the guitar program, perform all over the place and even enjoy practicing. Having a successful learning experience early on is so important and Aaron played a big part in that. We highly recommend Aaron as a guitar teacher for any age.
John Doyle is a highly gifted musician and and an incredibly talented guitar instructor. He has been my daughter's private guitar instructor for five years and I am continually impressed with John's dedication as a teacher. My daughter has not only learned how to play the guitar proficiently, but she has learned so much about music theory and improvisation. John also possesses the patience necessary to be a top-notch music teacher. My daughter always looks forward to her guitar lessons and has developed a love for the instrument, which I feel is a reflection of John's talent as a teacher. I would highly recommend John as a guitar instructor.
Working with Larry has been worth my while. I had no experience in guitar when I first began lessons. Mr. Haney took it one step at a time making sure I was understanding the material. His methods really helped me catch on pretty quickly and even when I had trouble we went at my pace. He is very easy going and a pleasure to talk to. Mr. Haney is punctual to lessons and always communicates with his students. He is flexible and understanding with your time. I highly recommend taking guitar lessons with Larry whether you are a beginner or have been playing for years.
Ryan is a very patient teacher. He gave me a good grasp of music theory, as well as help me discover and develop my own style of music. I currently take guitar and vocal and would recommend him to anyone who is either a beginner or advanced.

I help beginner guitarists and singer songwriters advance to that next level by teaching them the fundamentals. Once these practices are adopted, you'll find that a little motivation and discipline is all you need to become an excellent player. This is achieved in a fun manner by working on songs that interest the client while introducing basic chord progressions that will help bring out the singer/songwriter in you. I work mainly with acoustic guitar players but can also teach electric guitarists.
