I recently started guitar lessons with Paul. He is knowledgeable and talented and makes it easy to learn by starting with the basics. He took time to find out what I am hoping to gain through lessons and uses this as a basis for his teaching. I highly recommend him!

I have been taking guitar lessons with Paul for about two months now and I feel like I have learned so much already! I am very impressed with his knowledge on music theory and his easy demeanor makes me feel comfortable as I scrape through the chords. He also transposes songs that you request, so you can start learning through those songs instead of just chord progressions. While, also, teaching you how to read the music. I am really proud of my progress and it all has to do with his dedication to me, can't wait to see where I go from here with his guidance! I wholeheartedly recommend him if you are looking to start/get back into guitar.

We chose Emo to work with my 11 year old daughter via Skype for voice lessons. She was really nervous to have her very first voice lesson over Skype, and with a stranger, but Emo quickly put her at ease. He’s patient, encouraging, positive, and also really uses the 30 minutes fully. He wasn’t the cheapest vocal coach to respond to my thumbtack but he really knows what he’s doing and maximizes the 30 minute lesson. My daughter is really happy with him as her teacher and so am I!

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!

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.

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.

Michael, from my first lesson was so attentive to what I wanted to learn. Kind of in passing, I told him that I loved to sing but was afraid to so he really coaxed me to sing along to all the guitar songs I was learning (I really do not think that any other guitar teacher would have bothered...like "not my job". But, not Michael, he took that on as his job because he recognized that it was important to me). Likewise, when I would show an interest in a particular type of music (i.e. I like acoustic and more mellow, verging on country even), he found songs like that for me and he taught me my songs I had picked even though I doubt that they would have been his picks. In summary, he wanted me to relate to and enjoy the music; the lessons are all about what I want to get out of them...with professional guidance along the way as well. The other thing I want to definitely mention is that, Michael is top-knotch, professional and KNOWS music. He encouraged me to not only learn songs to play but to understand the theory of the music in those songs. I feel very proficient in music theory after taking classes with Michael. I not only play the stuff but I "get it." I understand the technical theory involved. I really think that this is something not every guitar teacher brings to the table or encourages. Many just do not know it! With Michael, we can move from guitar to piano so that he can illustrate something about chords in a key or the difference between major, minor, dominant and diminished chords. Bottom line, I have fun during my lesson but I learn so much more than memorizing chord shapes on the guitar. And, when I play and sing a song...well, it really feels great! Honestly, he is the BEST! He just cares so much about you learning all you can regarding music and he knows how to teach it so that you get to understand what can at first seem so unfamiliar. Michael has the holistic approach. He makes music familiar, logical, relatable and, most of all, Enjoyable. As his student, thumbs-up!

Cosima is a very personable and knowledgeable vocal coach. Her demeanor is comforting yet encouraging when working through those "rough notes". In the short time we have been taking lessons from her, she has given my son much needed confidence to navigate his changing voice. We are very happy to have found Cosima!

The first time I got guitar lessons from Michael I learned the beginner guitar chords right away and he knew what pace to go at. He knows where your weaknesses and strengths are and teaches in a way that doesn't feel rushed. He's been my teacher for a few months now and it's always a blast!

I would highly recommend Dan for his patience, knowledge, skills, experience and his love of teaching.

Davey is a great teacher! He really got to know our daughter and tailors her lessons to best suit her. He teaches her how to read music while also giving her a chance to have fun with her guitar. Her lesson is the perfect balance of reading music and practicing from her book along with fun jam sessions with Davey.

Bobby John has been very responsive regarding availability, responding to texts and phone calls very quickly. He was able to accomodate my request for evening lessons. At my first lesson he was very personable, making me feel at ease for my first music lesson ever (at age 51). We discussed my goals and then immediately started playing chords. It was fun and the exercises (and take-home) had me making pleasant sounds right away. I'm looking forward to my next lesson.
