I have started taking piano lessons at A Dawn Of Music Studios. Signing up was a very easy process. All options were clearly explained to me and Kristi was in constant communication with me during the registration process, even with my many questions about payment and she was also very accommodating concerning my postponements! I would definitely recommend Kristi Dawn's business for music lessons.

I've been taking guitar lessons with Bryson for 2-3 weeks and it's been great. He really knows his stuff and is able to tailor lessons based on my specific needs and progression. He has made himself available to answer any questions I may have outside of our lessons and has been incredibly patient with me which I thoroughly appreciate because my guitar skills sucked. I am confident that in due time (with practice) Bryson will be able to help me meet my guitar playing goals. Highly recommended, hire him.

Tim has been a wonderful guitar teacher for my daughter. His lessons are more than just guitar lessons. He brings rhythm and music theory into the education. He is generous with his knowledge, he is flexible with times and locations, and he is enthusiastic. It's been a great value and an experience well worth it.

Paluzzi guitar instruction has A+ instruction. I started as a complete beginner (didn't even know how to hold a guitar) and within ten lessons Kevin Paluzzi of Paluzzi Guitar Instruction taught me the entire guitar basics section from the first volume of one of the books he published and taught me 5 complete songs along the way. He gives you access to his books as well as online audio resources. Overall A+ experience.

Glen comes to our home to teach our ten year old once per week. He is great with our son and has sparked an enthusiasm in our son that has him so excited about playing the guitar and learning about music! Glen is also a very talented musician - but I'm mostly impressed with his ability to connect with our son. I would HIGHLY reccomend Glen as a music teacher.

From the moment I was contacted to set-up a lesson I was met with responsiveness and professionalism. Ian is a very gifted instructor. His passion for music and guitar is infectious. I never felt pressured to continue lessons but after my first session with Ian I was hooked. Ian is very supportive and encouraging. He is very patient and adjusts his pace to meet my learning needs. I've been a student for several months and very much look forward to continuing my lessons with Ian. I appreciate that he takes time to work with you to identify your goals and develops a plan to help you achieve them. I would absolutely recommend The Music Joynt to anyone wanting to learn guitar or take their playing to the next level!

Cameron came to where I was and brought a variety of his guitars to see which one best fit me. He also came to the music store to help me pick out a guitar. All that and he comes to you to teach the lessons. He is very laid back and patient and goes at your pace. Willing to fit a lesson into your schedule.

My daughter, who is almost 9, is shy and she doesn't like to finish projects that she has started. We expected her to quit the guitar within a week or two, but Greg keeps it interesting for her and she enjoys playing and is even asking for an electric guitar for Christmas so she can practice on both acoustic and electric. She has had 5 lessons so far, and we enjoy listening to her practice. I recommend Greg!

When I started taking guitar lessons with Scot almost two years ago, I have absolutely zero knowledge of guitars much less know how play them. But now, after less than two years under Scots tutelage, I am able to play classical music (on my classical guitar) to my extreme delight, something I've never thought possible because of my age. My thanks to Scot and Paper moon Music. I find Scot to be extremely qualified and talented guitar instructor. His knowledge of guitar (and various styles of playing) and music (including music theory) coupled with his years of experience is very evident. And, he has the ability to impart it patiently to others. I highly recommend Scot Taber and Paper moon Music to anybody-- beginner, intermediate, or advance student of any age.

I took both guitar and ukulele lesson from Kenny at the Ed Brown Center over a two year period, and found him a fine teacher. I learned a lot, and enjoyed my time in classes with him. He also formed us into a group to play for special occasions like July 4th. He's a good guy, loves teaching.

Vanessa is such a great teacher! I’m learning guitar and singing from her and she is SO helpful! She really cares about my progress as a musician! Vanessa takes her own free time to customize lessons for me, which is so amazing. My guitar playing has improved so much with her help. I was a total beginner when I started, and had trouble pressing my fingers down on the strings. Now, I’m playing songs that I like, reading music, and feeling proud of my accomplishments – I can play guitar and sing at the same time! Since I started lessons with her, I’ve become so much more confident as a singer. Her training has been amazing! My range, tone, and breath control are so much better. She’s an awesome teacher!

My son Max has been taking lessons with Ed for several years now and we couldn't be happier. Ed is an awesome music teacher with many talents. His knowledge of playing in a band has been a great help for my son. Ed will jump in and play the bass line with Max if needed. I love that he can teach vocals, guitar, bass, and drums and get in there and jam with my son, too. Ed's awesome! I'd highly recommend him if you're looking for a music teacher. Terry

I first started working with Mike 3 years ago when I was 12, knowing nothing about the guitar, and now I'm writing my own songs and learning other people's too! Mike is a superb teacher and a real down to Earth person! His knowledge and experience is incredible, he can listen to a song and pick out chords and notes, and he makes learning new things fun and easy to understand. When you take lessons with Mike you can play whatever style guitar you like, and he'll help you with whatever you ask for, whether it be music theory or just learning that song that's stuck in your head. I am extremely impressed with Mike's lessons and his excellent work ethic. Mike is an awesome guy who is fun, responsible, on time, trustworthy, reliable, and an epic guitarist who has recorded his own songs that are magnificent! So if you're thinking about taking lessons Mike is the way to go!

    Two of our children have benefitted from guitar lessons with Brian Murphy (one has since left for college.) I could go on and on why he is one of the best extracurricular investments we've made over the years. Simply, his rates are more than reasonable for what you get. The kids had different goals for pursuing guitar, they have different learning styles and have different temperaments. Brian Murphy adapted his teaching for each of them. He is encouraging and supportive and is available for questions or advice in between lessons. We've asked for lessons on acoustic and electric guitars and the electric bass guitar. He worked patiently with us as we adjusted each kid's goals (including composing and performing) and, in is quiet calm manner, he continues to support whatever goal we throw at him. Great guy to work with as a parent and my kids appreciate his style and support.

    I am a singer songwriter, and although I'm very creative I am not superbly talented with the guitar, which is why nick is my go to guy for all things "Guitar" I have worked with Nick on several musical projects throughout the years. This last one being a band I started called Julia May and the Penguins. We had about three hours of material and because of Nicks extensive knowledge and experience playing music he was able to play all of the material right away. He, also, hardly made any mistakes at shows. In fact, I was the one who made most of the mistakes on stage and he would always notice and play along to whatever I sang till I brought us back to where we were suppose to be. This is an awesome quality because every performer knows that even if you don't know what you're doing, if you can continue to just play and have fun, the audience will never know the difference. He has also helped me piece together songs that I wrote and thought we're finished until he presented me with other options to spice them up; arrangement, adding simple guitar licks. This creativity was most appreciated while working in the studio. I have used nick in the studio several times while working on my cd because he is good at listening and understanding what you need and providing you with results. He is also capable of playing with perfect time so the song gets finished quick and we don't spend hours trying to record a piece that syncs well the rest of the arrangement. I would definitely recommend him for any musical needs you might have. He is very talented and most importantly, very professional and prompt.

    Diogo is an amazing musician with an outstanding amount of experience in a variety of styles. His approach to teaching is organized, individualized to my needs and experiential. With Diogo, I study Brazilian bossa nova and my understanding of theory, technique and style and improved greatly since starting with Diogo. Sometimes I record his playing to take home, he may write out chords/rhythms for me, and helps me to find printed music that is well presented, not just an internet copy/paste :). I have studied music for many years and am so grateful to have found Diogo to push me to the next level. His knowledge base is HUGE! Beginner to advanced, Diogo is a fantastic teacher.
