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.

My son has been learning the guitar for about 5 months now. Thru the help of Kevin, he is actually enjoying it. He is actually learning guitar chords and is amazed by the fact that he could actually play an entire song. I would highly recommend Kevin!

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. He shares his in depth knowledge and experience earned over a lifetime of playing and teaching in every lesson.

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.

My son and daughter really enjoy Gavin and his approach to learning to play the guitar. He is very patient, kind and above all is interested in the kind of music the kids want to learn; this makes learning to play the guitar much more enjoyable! Gavin also puts on an awesome concert every year giving his students an opportunity to show what they've learned with actual back-up music by his band! He even records the event so you can have a copy of your childs performance! I would highly recommend Gavin for your younger children as well as older.

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.

Having played the guitar for more than 30 years, I wanted to be able to take my abilities to the next level. Andrew Tintle at Roseville Guitar Lessons has a unique and definitely successful way of addressing each guitarist's needs and skills - from beginner to expert. I have learned - and my playing skills have progressed - more in the past six months than in the previous 20 years. Andrew works individually with each student to develop a program that addresses how that guitarist wants to progress. Andrew has developed a "Learn by Doing" program that allows each student to address specific skills, then take those learned skills and apply them in real-time playing. Over the years I have taken a variety of lessons from different instructors, and I can say without a doubt that my time with Andrew/Roseville Guitar Lessons has been the best investment of my time and money -Andrew has taken my guitar-playing to levels I had not been able to achieve. For anyone - beginner to expert - looking to advance their guitar-playing skills, I would highly recommend Andrew Tintle at Roseville Guitar Lessons!!

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.

AARON IS AWESOME!!! He taught me the songs I wanted to learn and broke them down in a way that made them easy to pick-up.

About

I love teaching from beginning up to advanced acting principles, voice, speech, movement, improv, and various other fun elements of the dramatic arts. Also, if you're looking for beginning or intermediate guitar, bass or drums, I'm your guy! Are you looking for a band? I've got one! I also have child care experience and can host intermittent afternoons and keep your youngins learning and having a blast!

About

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.

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

About

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.

About

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).
