Glen comes to our home to teach our ten year old once per week. He is great with our son and has sparked an enthusiasm in our son that has him so excited about playing the guitar and learning about music! Glen is also a very talented musician - but I'm mostly impressed with his ability to connect with our son. I would HIGHLY reccomend Glen as a music teacher.

My son Alexander has been taking guitar lessons from Seth for about 6 months now. He finally looks forward to his lessons. As parents, it was really important to us to have someone our son could connect with, and be inspired by. Seth has been the perfect match for us. Alexander says "He's a great player, great mentor, and all around awesome guy! He's taught me some cool techniques that I never knew before" We're excited to have him help our son unlock all of his musical potential. You Rock Seth!

I highly recommend US Music Lessons! My 14-year-old son has been with US Music Lessons for nearly a year as part of the Rock Band class. He is a drummer and has loved playing with other students in his band as they learn together the skills they need to be part of an actual rock band. They have played multiple times at local venues, including the Hard Rock Cafe, which has been an incredible experience for the kids. Although my son already was a drummer coming into US Music Lessons (Thanks to his grandfather), he has learned a great deal from the wonderful teachers that instruct the Rock Band. My son plays with kids every week who have been students of US Music Lessons learning various instruments, including voice lessons, and their experience has been positive. The kids coming out of US Music Lessons are all gifted and talented young musicians thanks to the wonderful teachers dedicated to their musical growth. The Rock Band class is an innovative, fun and inspiring way to teach music in that it develops a love and passion for performing and therefore a desire to improve on a daily basis. Playing with others that are like-minded and receiving the feedback in an actual performance class from the instructor has been an invaluable experience for my son.

I took both guitar and ukulele lesson from Kenny at the Ed Brown Center over a two year period, and found him a fine teacher. I learned a lot, and enjoyed my time in classes with him. He also formed us into a group to play for special occasions like July 4th. He's a good guy, loves teaching.

I just started working with Michael and I already feel more confident and have more fun playing the guitar than I had in almost a year. His immense love and knowledge of music is astounding and he translates that into lessons that make me excited to learn more. He is very approachable, highly responsive and extremely flexible. I cannot recommend Michael enough to begin or continue your musical education!

I had played guitar a bit or so I thought. John helped me correct some bad techniques I had which prevented me from playing guitar better. As a result, I began playing cleaner and more accurately. He took my playing to a whole new level that is more interesting and gave me a long term practice regime that I was able to use to continually improve. I would highly recommend him as a guitar teacher to those at any level!!!!

    Both my son and I have taken guitar lessons from Brian for a few years. It has been a great experience learning a wide variety of styles, from classic Rock to Jazz. And his patience has definitely helped our playing improve over time. I would recommend Brian for anyone from beginner to experienced.

    About

    I specialize in advance students who want to expand on their playing. I also teach beginners the fundamentals of playing. My specialty is '70s style, hammer/pull speed, and solos.

    About

    I offer beginning and intermediate guitar instruction, a curriculum based in practical techniques (blues) to learn songs and quickly enjoy music-making.

    About

    I just recently finished a bachelor's degree in jazz studies from one of the leading music programs in the United States, the University of North Texas. I am available for lessons in improvisation, harmony, theory, ear training, and technical work on the guitar.

    About

    As a graduate of Berklee College of Music, I offer a strong set of musical tools in such things as music theory, harmony (chords), songwriting/composition, recording equipment and techniques, ear training and (if you like) musical notation, in addition to just how to play an instrument. What this gives you is a skill set that goes beyond just moving your fingers on the strings, and helps you understand how music works, how your instrument fits into it, and ultimately helps you teach yourself as well!

    About

    I'm a 21-year-old music theory major who's spent the last 10 years attending the School for the Creative and Performing Arts. I'm familiar with all genres of guitar disciplines.

    About

    I have been teaching drum and guitar lessons for the last five years. I studied music and voice at Cal State Fullerton. I get my students ready to play at gigs quickly, because I sing and play guitar at lessons so that we can cover songs during the sessions.
