Paul is amazing!!!! He is so patient and supportive as an instructor. So pleased with my decision to hire Paul. He has a great relationship with my 6 year old and I am confident in his ability to teach her how to play the guitar. Paul is so awesome that I decided to take guitar lessons as well! Looking forward to making music with my daughter!!! Thank you Paul!!!

Great Teacher! His playing demonstrates a profound knowledge of his instrument. Whether hes teaching you new techniques, chords and inversions, different styles of playing, or the basics of music theory, the lessons are presented in a way tangible to the student. He is better than any guitar player I've seen, so he can take you to the next level if you are already good, or he can help you as a beginner like me.

I decided to take guitar lessons 2 years ago after trying to learn on my own with limited success. I tried group lessons and got a little better but was limited by other students who didn't practice. I was fortunate to find Paul after talking with several teachers. Paul was willing to teach what I wanted to learn and push me to get better. Paul has exceeded my expectations. I'm better and having more fun playing guitar than I ever hoped. I highly recommend Paul for anyone wanting to learn guitar.

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.

Omar was a great teacher who made each lesson challenging but fun at the same time. I learned a lot from him in a short time about finger picking and chord progressions, and he introduced me to a lot of perfect songs to learn on guitar that I wouldn't have known otherwise.

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.

Chris should change his last name from Rockaway to RockSTAR. I’ve taken plenty of guitar lessons from others over the years, but no one had the seemingly psychic ability to assess my playing and prescribe a set of customized exercises the way Chris does. It’s like he knows exactly what you need to stop feeling like a poser and actually get good at guitar. Chris pays full attention to you throughout the lessons, and you won’t feel like he’d rather be somewhere else (wouldn’t we all rather be headlining Coachella??!) Book with Chris now before he realizes he’s not charging half as much as he should be. You will not regret it.

Hello, My name is Abigail. I’m 11 years old and have been taking guitar lessons from Damien for about 2 years now. He has taught me how to read music. I have learned step by step, no rushing into music whatsoever. In the beginning of my lessons, Damien gave me a booklet/guitar notebook to record every lesson. My first lessons were basically getting to know music and my guitar. The next couple of lessons he began teaching me how to play simple songs like “Twinkle-Twinkle,” “Happy Birthday” and “Mary Had a Little Lamb.” Further on, Damien allowed me to choose a couple of my favorite songs, which he then taught me how to play. I definitely recommend any beginners to attend his lessons because you will not regret it.

I have been taking guitar lessons from Kimberly via Skype for about six years. I really like her teaching style which is systematic and focused. She tailors her lessons to my goals and time. Her teaching method is to help you gain insight and skill through patient practice of gradually changing exercises. She doesn't snow you with theory, but presents it to you in digestible amounts just when it will make sense. She welcomes questions and I always learn from our discussions. She has led me to learn techniques on the guitar that I was absolutely sure I could never learn. For something to seem impossible at the start, to seem possible a week later and to be routine a month later is amazingly uplifting. Kimberly's background was first a life of teaching herself and playing gigs with all kinds of bands in all kinds of places. She has also deepened and strengthened her knowledge by gaining academic degrees in guitar and jazz and also by studying under masters. This gives her an incredibly deep understanding of learning and teaching music, an immense skill in playing guitar, and an appreciation for the challenges of playing with other people. I especially love her continued enthusiasm for guitar and that she really enjoys teaching. I have found in Kimberly the best of teachers and highly recommend her without reservation.

Saro is a highly experienced teacher. He comes from the prestigious USC Thornton school of music and knows what's he doing! my son first started learning the guitar with another teacher. Later I hired Saro to work with him. The outcome of his teaching was fantastic as my son's playing improved dramatically. His hand positions, tone quality and musicianship highly improved. I definitely recommend taking lessons from Saro.

At the age of 9 my son Julian started to take group guitar lessons from Pat. After that session I ask Pat if he does private lessons, he said yes but its at La Puente. So from Chino Hills I took my son to La Puente every Saturday for the next 5 years. He is very good with kids and I highly recommend him. My son now 18 enjoys writing songs & performing.

I've been taking classes with Lucas for nearly a month, and in that time, He has shown me a lot in the ground work for Classical Guitar. Many years ago, I had a teacher who was dreadfully boring, and after many sessions, I stopped going because I felt I was making no progress in that environment. Lucas however, he's incredibly patient and teaches and works at a pace that is suitable and helps retain attention. I always feel motivated to learn new stuff, and I know I have a long way to go before I reach my goal, but having Lucas as an instructor is wonderful and I couldn't think of anyone else I'd rather have teach me.

Chris is definitely the guy you want in your corner if you want to learn to play the guitar!!! I’ve tried to learn from several people but could never really remember much once the Guitar lesson was over. Not with Chris! He has a way of teaching and communicating that makes learning the guitar fun. To sum it... if you want to learn guitar, GO TO CHRIS!

Ivan is great... I've just had two lessons and am definitely continuing on!. I've never picked up a guitar, ever and am a complete novice adult. He's extremely patient, and has a thorough and complete knowledge of every aspect of the guitar. He guides you through (albeit clumsy attempts on my part) every aspect of playing, and spends time with you revisiting each chord until it rings out clear. I would highly recommend him on all levels!

Brian is a really great teacher. I'm a self-taught folk guitar player with a million bad habits and a degree in music and I feel extremely fortunate to have found him. I always wanted to take guitar lessons but had trouble finding a teacher that made me feel comfortable. Brian is super patient, flexible, affordable and gifted-- I'm proud of the improvements I've made so far and I highly recommend him!

Dominic is a great motivator as a teacher in classical and jazz styles for guitar. He has an incredible mind that allowes you to expand what you could do with the guitar. Not only he is a great musician to work with, but a great guy/friend to get to know. It was a very innovating experience working with him!

We are so lucky to have met such an outstanding, caring and friendly music teacher. Kelly Apgar and her wonderful array of instructors make music lessons fun and enjoyable for my three daughters, who take piano, guitar and, voice lessons. Within months of taking music lessons, my daughters were reading music and playing songs! An added benefit to working with Elite Musique is that they prepare students for passing the Royal School of Music exams. Kelly and her staff are nurturing and patient with their students. Kids learn how to play an instrument while developing the love of music!
