  4. #4 Starliner Music

    (19 reviews)

    Steve D.

    Have played with many different guitar teachers through the years, but I've finally found somebody with Kim that has really advanced my playing to the next level. She shows you how to use different techniques or fret knowledge to real playing applications. I finally feel comfortable playing in different situations and knowing how to sound like I know what I'm doing. Can't recommend her high enough.

  6. #6 Stephan's Lessons

    (15 reviews)

    Annisa H.

    I took guitar lessons with Stephan for about 6 months before I moved away from Los Angeles. I was a beginner who had tried to teach myself the acoustic guitar for a few years prior, but I never progressed very far until I started taking lessons with Stephan. I enjoyed the style of his lessons, in that I could choose what songs I wanted to learn and therefore actually want to practice them on my own, while at the same time learning theory that Stephan would weave into lessons. Stephan was great at coming up with the best approach for me to learn any song of my choice for my skill level, while also allowing me to learn new techniques. I was impressed that he was able to figure out how to play songs from a wide range of genres that I chose, and he was really able to pack a lot of information into a 30 minute lesson. I accomplished everything that I wanted from our lessons these past months (e.g. learning different strum patterns, building up a repertoire of songs to play for friends). Stephan is very energetic, positive, patient, and kind, plus it was always very enjoyable to listen to him play. I highly recommend Stephan for guitar lessons!

    (7 reviews)

    Ashley H.

    I got my boyfriend surprise lessons, he likes playing on the guitar but has had no formal lesson or training ever. After comparing the many potential instructors i went with Doug, and what a great decision. I received nothing but great feedback from boyfriend. Doug really listened to what he was trying to accomplish with the lessons, was very patient and was very thorough. Needless to say, my boyfriend is excited for the next meeting. He is awesome and highly recommended. :)

    (8 reviews)

    Dylan S.

    He has a great way of teaching you what you need to know about the guitar. He also keeps it fun and interesting and throws in guitar theory but not to much to where it gives you a head ache, just enough to blow your mind!

Thumbtack Spotlight

Dave's Accordion School

Through my reputation by word of mouth and referrals through Dave's, I have cultivated lasting relationships with long-time students and established a foundation within the community.

Michael Hays teaches guitar at Dave's Accordion School, specializing in rock. He has been playing and studying music for more than 20 years, and he caters to all ages and skill levels. Since most of his clients are children aged 5-16, Michael focuses on notation, melody, theory, technique and dynamics. Co-writing, producing and engineering original songs for his long-time student is his most favorite project.

Anyone can benefit from musical expression. Whatever your goals may be, music lessons will enrich your life with knowledge, skill, and confidence.

Michael always tries to create a relaxed yet fun environment which usually stimulates creativity and curiosity in his students. So check him out!
