David is a great teacher who isn't doing this for the money but to teach the art of music. He has stayed at my house twice as long as what I payed for and added no extra charge. He also gives a wide range of ways to relate his teachings. (IE. I take bass lessons but we commonly go to the piano to practice and drill) all in all David is a great teacher and highly recommended. Definite 5 stars.

Just finished my 2nd guitar lesson with Steve this week. Steve is professional and very patient with beginners like me. I also really like how he incorporates learning to read sheet music into his lessons.

Guitar lessons in Roseville California. My instructor was ready, on time, prepared, and clearly knew what he was talking about. Their prices are reasonable, and their studio is clean and well maintained. I think they are a good place to learn guitar.

The number of styles Ty can teach is unmatched. Ty's interpersonal skills make him a great person to see every week. I always look forward to my lessons. At my age, I need a good teacher to motivate me to learn. Ty is a master at tailoring the lesson to the students ability. He taught me several things that I needed to move to the next level. He can assess my weaknesses and and focus my attention where I need to improve. When my rudiments needed attention, Ty added challenging rudiments to my practice schedule. He always adjusted those rudiments to my abilities. When meter was my weak link, Ty added simple beats and clock sync exercises. Always, the challenges were at the right level to prevent frustration and encourage me to improve. I highly recommend Ty for drum lessons. Also, I have begun learning guitar. Again, Ty's ability to teach is proving him to be a good guitar teacher as well.

Iam a professional Guitarist and have been taking lessons from Bob for a bout 2 months now. I inicially contacted Bob becaused I had reached an impasse with my playing. Within the first couple of lessons I learned to negociate the fret board with more ease and confidence. Bob has a solid foundation in theory as well as teaching the student the pratical application of the theory. I was able to apply the learning material to my playing almost immediately after my lesson. Bob is very patient and takes the time to explain the material so it is well understood before the lessons are over. I highly reccommend Bob to anyone who wants to take their playing to the next level.

From the few months that I've studied with Craig I have to say he's a pretty amazing guitar instructor. I had been playing guitar for 3 years prior to starting as a student with Craig, but he has taught me more than I ever learned on my own in all that time. In my experience (and from what little I've seen with his other students) he knows how to zero in on a students needs and desires for playing guitar. Students feel at ease with Craig but he also knows how to push someone in order to bring forth their innate abilities. From theory to technique to proper repitoire to guitar history to proper practicing, etc., Craig has given me everything I need to succeed, and I'm only getting started! I'd recommend this man to anyone no matter what their skill level is.

Jerry Pajel (Mr. J) is a passionate violin teacher. I have been taking violin lessons for one year now, and I must say that I learned so much in my first month of lessons. While teaching, he communicates effectively and makes learning the violin easy!

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.

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

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.

The 44th note is an amazing company. My sons guitar lessons were great. He looked forward to the lesson every week. 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.

JJ is a very accomplished guitar player and a very good instructor. Not only can he play guitar, but he's also great at mandolin, banjo and the pedal steel guitar. I would gladly recommend him to any friends or family wanting to learn how to play any of these instruments.

Kevin is a great teacher. He's incredibly patient and encouraging, and explains things in a way that's easy to follow even as a novice. He never makes me feel inadequate or makes me doubt my abilities. His musical talents also go beyond playing and teaching guitar- he can play other instruments as well, knows all about recording, and has a vast knowledge about music in general.


I've always felt that most guitar teachers are somewhat one sided. My curriculum consists of both tablature reading and musical notation. Being very strict on not only what is played but the quality it is being played at. I strive for cleanliness in my own practicing and performing and expect nothing less from my students.

I am an extremely patient teacher,which I feel is a vital attribute in this profession. I also have experience in several genres of music,including classical,jazz,blues,and pop styles.And,I teach both standard notation and tablature.

I teach in a way that compliments a students strong points yet improves weaknesses. I never teach a 1 way fits all lesson plan.


Attention: Please contact me via text or email. I have been playing guitar for about 10 years, and I wish to share my knowledge. I specialize in teaching how to write original music. I have been performing live music since 2005, touring around the United States. I enjoy teaching beginner guitar courses to show basic chord progressions and how to incorporate those into writing original music. My teaching philosophy is that I like to make my students aware of the best guitar chords and techniques for a beginner to start with, which will make them familiar with the process of the big picture; a large part of that is also teaching what the student wants to learn. This approach makes the student want to continue playing and practicing the guitar, as opposed to sending them home with all different types of exercises, which can seem overwhelming and, sometimes, boring. Each one of my students receives a 10-minute CD with fun drum beats to play along with (when the time is appropriate, everyone learns at a different pace), as well as session recordings to teach them some basic recording techniques and to listen to what they have been learning. I hold lessons at my home in Dixon, CA, which is the most appropriate place to start with the lessons. I am willing to travel within a reasonable distance in the surrounding areas (additional fees will apply). I have a few packages to choose from. Standard rates are $40 per 1-hour session or $140 per month for 4 one-hour sessions per month. Also inquire about 30-minute sessions.

Well, I teach guitar. I can teach the basics -- chords, notes, scales, structure, and timing. I can also teach any style for those who want to know more.

Hello! My name is Jesse Szabo, and I've been playing guitar for almost 10 years and professionally for 3 years. I use an extremely personalized approach to teaching that utilizes my students' strengths and weaknesses to round them out as a player. Whether it's theory, note reading, soloing, or just want to have fun learning your favorite song, we can do that. I'm excited to meet you and start learning! If you are learning on an electric guitar, all I ask is that you have some kind of amplifier at your residence because I cannot bring an extra. Other than that, I will determine what materials we need.
