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.
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.
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!!!
Great guitar instructor, highly recommended.
I have had many guitar instructors over the last few years and Mike is the main one I go back to whenever possible. Every experience is a good one and his attitude and energy are always a positive! We usually do not plan and if we do we usually just let things develop. I always look forward to seeing Mike.
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.
Max is a great guitar teacher. Right from the get-go he was flexible, friendly and seemed to get what I needed as a musician. I've had lessons in the past where it was either boring (music theory) or too scatterbrained for me to connect all the dots. Max has a way of zoning in on what you need specifically at the moment and tailoring the lesson toward that. I don't think you can find a better deal in Los Angeles.
I had lessons with Zeth for a while and 1st of all he’s super nice and honestly a super nice guy who’s great at teaching 2nd of all he makes the lessons super meaningful ( I was his drum student ) and we worked from the minute he got there to the end of the lessons, and the time flew because the lessons were so fun but taught me so much too. thirdly the way he taught me was amazing and if anyone’s reading this and they’re on the fence about taking lessons from zeth, totally do it, they’re meaningful and you’ll learn a lot from him -Thomas
I have been wanting to learn to play the guitar for years. Finally, this past Christmas I decided to give myself guitar lessons. A little "to me, from me" gift. I found Dave through word of mouth here in Ojai. Multiple people told me he was a great teacher. I have enjoyed my lessons so much! Dave has extensive background in different styles of playing guitar. He is a professional. He is very patient and breaks things down in a way that is easy to understand. I really can't believe I have leaned so much in such a short time. I highly recommend Dave if you want to learn to play the guitar!
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!
Exceeded all expectations. Exactly what I was looking for. Highly recommended to anybody looking to learn the guitar.
Spencer is a wonderful guitar teacher! He is friendly, knowledgeable of music theory, patient, able to work with kids and adults with a variety of skill levels. He is also quite inspiring and motivating. He made guitar lessons fun and exciting.
Howard Richman is not a piano teacher...he is a LIFE CHANGER. I went to him to learn piano...but realized that the lessons I learned studying piano with the MASTER were not merely lessons in music....but lessons that helped me see outside the paradigm in all areas of my life. Often, as adults, we "come back" to our music...to study what we have been "wanting to get back to" for years. I learned that this is often a time of great change and evolution for us personally. Howard, being so intuitive, knows how to tune in to each individual's needs.... and empower them to EMPOWER themselves. He is a BRILLIANT pianist, composer and master teacher. I've watched him perform miracles with young children who struggled with other teachers who simply wanted to teach "by the book." Howard is always able to find your inner talent and abilities, possibly that are even unknown to you...and he can creatively, intuitively and intelligently create a course of action that will leave you amazed! That's why you are reading SO many wonderful comments here about him. If you are lucky enough to get to study with Howard, it will change your life!...and btw, I can now play a mean Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata"....Thank you for everything you taught me Howard Richman!

Leila is a gifted teacher, who makes learning to play piano an adventure. Her teaching was very practical and effective, enabling me to make rapid progress. And she was brilliant at explaining music theory! She is simply the most awesome teacher!
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!
Guitar theory lessons. Mike is a very knowledgeable musician with a lot of patience and a knack for explaining thing in several different ways so as you can grasp the concept of what is being studied. He's very friendly and makes you comfortable while learning what he's teaching you.
Mitch Is a great guy and a wonderful teacher. He is very patient and caring with his students. He is also very talented and has a lot to offer. He was always on time and made the lessons fun and interesting. I recommend him highly!!
My daughter Shavanie has been with at SoundCheck for about two months. First off I must say Dan & Electra are very friendly and down to earth people. My daughter does Vocal & Piano lessons with Electra, she is one of the best music coach my daughter has worked with so far...... I am amazed by her progress. She also does Guitar lessons with Josh, who is also amazing...she is finally enjoying her guitar :) Since my daughter has been with SoundCheck she has shown more excitement towards music vocally and instrumentally. I can't thank them enough! :-) I truly recommend SoundCheck, you will not regret it.
I have worked with Bob on various levels. First, Bob provided me with private guitar lessons for several years. Bob made the learning experience fun and enjoyable. I was able to learn and play the kind of music that I wanted to play. Bob is also very patience (staying with me for so many years is a true testament to this!). My youngest son Michael also took private guitar lessons from Bob. On a more professional level, Bob and his band performed at my oldest son's (Bobby) wedding receipion. It was a "blast" with all of the guests dancing and singing. I actually received a call years later from an attending guest asking for Bob's contact information for their wedding reception (obviously they had very fond memories of the event and Bob's music). If and when my 2 remaining kids get married, I can guaranty Bob will be going the music. He makes an event a real party!!!
He communicated very effectively and was on time for my son's lesson. He was patient and relaxed when teaching my son guitar. I would recommend him to my friends and family😁
I have known Ms. Macleod for almost a year. My son has been taking piano lessons with Lynne beginning last September. The progress he has made during his seven months with Lynne as a teacher far exceeded any expectations I had and demonstrated to me what a wonderful teacher she is. Ms. Macleod is a very friendly and patient instructor. My son enjoys his piano lessons and is extremely relaxed and comfortable with her. She encourages and coaxes the very best effort from him. The community is extremely fortunate to have a music teacher like her. In my opinion, her prices are extremely reasonable and she is worth every penny she charges and I certainly believe I have received excellent service. It is my great pleasure to recommend Lynne Macleod to you as a music teacher for your children.
