Jaime is my guitar teacher now and she's awesome! I have her a little background and when she showed up, she'd actually read my profile and came ready with a plan for how I should learn. I gave her some songs I wanted to learn, but the one she gave me ended up being my favorite to play. 5 stars!

Chris is an awesome teacher and my son loved him! He was on time and well-prepared. He's a really good guitar player and I know my son will learn a lot from him. We've set up weekly lessons.

About

I've been wanting to take guitar lessons for over a year after winning this great guild guitar and I haven't found anyone that I could really connect with. Took a few classes but from day one I didn't feel a connection and to me thats the most important thing. Day one with Ricky was great. We discussed the different kinds of music that I wanted to play and he even asked to listen to some of my favorite songs to get an idea of my style and we started immediately. It's only been about two months and I can already play a good handful of songs and my confidence has gone up tremendously. I think anyone who's interested in playing guitar should check Ricky out. He also has deals on his rates if you pay in advance. Dalmasy

About

I took guitar lessons from Craig once a week for six months. I liked the way the way he set up his Skype camera so I could watch his fingers as he was showing me different chords and scales. I found Craig to be very knowledgeable about all kinds of music and had great answers to my various questions. His personality is very outgoing and entertaining and that made the lessons fun. I would highly recommend Craig to anyone.

About

Vince has been teaching guitar lessons to my 7 year old daughter for the past 2 months. He is patient, encouraging, and teaches with a good balance of challenge and support. Vince is always prepared and uses a book to supplement his teaching. He writes notes to illustrate his lessons which helps my daughter practice at home. Vince is thoughtful and encourages my daughter to collaborate during lessons and also tries to incorporate music that she enjoys. He plans two recitals per year (summer and winter) for his students who include children and adults. My daughter participated in the June recital after only one month of lessons! Vince taught her to play the Happy Birthday song as a surprise for my husband whose birthday was the day of the recital. The program was held at a Pasadena park and Vince centered the event around the student performances and did not promote himself or his program as many music teachers tend to do. Vince is humble, gentle, and encouraging. He focuses on teaching his students to enjoy playing the guitar and to feel confident about expressing their music. I highly recommend him to anyone interested in guitar lessons. He visits our home weekly for private lessons. His rates are fair and he is flexible should we ever need to cancel/reschedule a class.

I took lessons with music production lessons withJohn and he made me feel very comfortable. He knows how to teach and is great for people who are serious. Only downside was we were using a software I never used so it was hard to transition.

My 13-year old daughter started taking piano lessons with Dimitris about two months ago. She is happy and always looks forward to her class and I'm very satisfied with her progress. He shows that he dedicates time to prepare for his class and tries to keep her engaged. I definitely recommend Dimitris!

Everything!!!! Brian is crazy skilled! I had mostly taught myself guitar when I started, and decided it was time to take private lessons - to take it up a notch. Brian came up with a plan - and we jumped on it. From day 1, kept me busy hrs on end - practice is the key. Patient and down to earth - do I recommend Brian? YES!!! Please give him a call - he's worked with my crazy schedule and has been able to accommodate me.

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!

From the very first moment I sat down with Rick he made me feel relaxed and comfortable. I went to the first lesson very nervous and apprehensive. Although, I have just begun my lessons Rick has already convinced me that I can, with effort and patience, learn to play. I would recommend Rick to anyone who wants to learn music.

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!
