I have been playing guitar for around 20 years, mostly self taught. Over the years, I have tried out various lessons (online, multiple teachers, etc). Never have I experienced such an organized, thoughtful approach to learning your instrument than with Jason Bond. I've been with him for around 6 months. He can cater to your needs, but I prefer to follow his lead. It is like going to your own private music school (Jason is studying for his PhD in music). I am covering the basics of jazz and improving my theory, but also improving my blues/rock abilities. Jason will end your search for the ultimate guitar/music teacher! Also a great guy, thoughtful person, whom I now consider a good friend.

It has always been a musical learning experience beyond the notes on the page for me working with Bob. His knowledge of the history of both the instrument and the music, enriches the learning experience. Bob gives more than just quality music lessons.

I have been a student at Roseville Guitar Lessons for over a year. I initially joined Andrew at RGL because I was stuck in a rut and needed to be challenged. Andrew is a very dynamic instructor; extremely professional and will certainly get you engaged and excited about playing. Andrew works well with all ages and levels of experience. No matter your skill level, he can make you a better guitarist. I highly recommend Andrew if you are serious about getting better. Dan

Craig is an excellent guitar instructor. He tailors my lessons to my music al interest, and is the only teacher who helps me focus on mental preparation (for performance confidence). He has helped me develop physical techniques such right hand exercises, looping practices for increasing tempo and learning the fretboard. Playing the notes of music is just one part of playing an instrument... playing with dynamics makes the music more alive and enjoyable. Craig has taught me this as well. When I met Craig 15 months ago he told me he could help me to become a musician vs. a guitarist. I'm on my way because of Craig's interest in me as an individual and his genuine encouragement. I want to practice everyday because I'm excited to see my improvement through specific drills and methods. Craig has taught me how to practice which is incredibly important.

Mike has been giving my daughter guitar lessons now for approximately 4 to 5 months. She is just 9 years old, but he is able to really relate to her and her style of music. More importantly, he has been able to build upon the basics while keeping her engaged and excited about guitar. I HIGHLY recommend Mike!

    I have known Peppino D'Agostino for 9 years. During this time I have taken finger style lessons from him when our schedules permit. He is very professional yet personable in his teaching. When I make a mistake he corrects me without discouraging me. He is very positive in his teaching and encourages you to improve. He is also very patient with his teaching and can adapt it to any age. Peppino tailors his teaching to your playing level but also gives you a gentle push to try to increase your skills. He is open to teaching you any style of music. He is the consummate professional in performing and teaching. He is my guitar mentor. Dennis Sweeney

The encouragement he received made him feel good even after the lesson was over. Couldn't of asked for a better teacher. Thank you Jeff for helping my son not only learn the guitar but all feel better about himself.

    Rich Ayala has been the best guitar teacher my son has ever had. Rich has taught him more in two years than he learned in three years with other instructors. Rich has a way of letting the student learn the rudiments of the guitar while teaching music the student wants to play. We also like him on a personal basis.

I've been in several music groups, so now, I'm dedicated to teach step by step lessons for my consumers to make sure they have a chance, to have the amazing experiences I've had in music. From several techniques and genres, to reading and writing music, I make sure my student succeeds.


    I teach most guitar styles, rock, blues, folk and classical forr electric or acoustic guitar, including pick or fingerstyle methods. I use OTC materials whenever possible such as Hal Leonard guitar method, Sagreras for classical and play along tab books w/cd for experienced players. I teach music theory as it pertains to the songs being studied so students can developed and do their own thing. I started playing guitar at age 10. I have 40 years experience playing in all types of groups. I've taught guitar full time for 7 years and still enjoy the work very much. I charge $95 per month for (4 half hour lessons).


    I've worked in Arthur Murray Dance Academy for 2 years, competed and performed many times, and I really enjoy teaching. Music has been a passion of my family through the years, and it's part of my culture.

I can also teach ukulele. I am flexible with my scheduling! I charge $100 per month. That gets you one 30-minute lesson a week. I can teach kids or adults at most skill levels. I teach out of my apartment.
