"I had guitar lessons with the Guitar Institute of Learning for a little over 3 years, and those years were the first 3 years I had in my experience of ever playing the guitar. I learned so much from my teacher. He taught me Jazz Standards, folk songs, and even things that were accommodated to my own interests as well! More importantly, I gained a life changing perspective from the songs, chords, melodies and harmonies that my teacher taught me. The concepts never get old. Guitar Institute of Learning does not just teach you how to play guitar, but how to practice it and how to become a great musician. It can be one thing to play an instrument, but to know how to play with other musicians requires a development of playing with others and applying your knowledge. Which is what guitar institute of learning can help you do. Everything I learned from GIOL literally changed my view and appreciation for music once I became more aware of the music world. I learned things that, once I looked back and realized what I was learning, I was so surprised and grateful that I was shown such great songs. I will always have a gratitude for the class and vast repertoire that they had opened me up to. As a musician, now playing guitar for 8 years, I would not be where I am today without those lessons. Knowing how important practicing everyday is, and finding how you define music will help you find an appreciation and motivation from and beyond these lessons." -Lawrence S. Abbott
My daughter was struggling in math skills and after researching about how helpful music lessons can help in math, I started my daughter in piano lessons. Mrs. C is very helpful and encouraging. She always challenges my daughter to push beyond any difficulties. She takes the time to explain things so thoroughly and will never rush us out the door because our time is up. We've been through other teachers that are a bit stern and strict and my daughter immediately shuts down in that environment and will complain about going to lessons. We have never had the problem with Mrs. C. She teaches the kids to think outside the box and to use logic by making it fun.

"I want to play guitar." Chad helps you see just what that means to you. What level do you aspire to? Do you want to emphasize chords or finger picking or vice versa? What do you hope to do with the guitar? He is the guitar player we are all familiar with: laid back, easy going, so relaxing, soothing - making it look so easy. But he also lets you in on some of his challenges as a teacher and performer - which takes away some of the student's anxiety about being able to learn the guitar. And with his personal attention he conveys that conviction that you. too, can and will play the guitar. But you do have to bring in a level of dedication and commitment to deep, serious, daily practice. I'm semi-retired and so I've able to practice 3 hours a day. I'm just now hearing an improvement in my playing and the fingers are moving with more certainty and confidence. I'm on my way to achieving a level of playing that's of my own making & determination - that is very exciting.

Hi there, my name is Travis Haney. I am a guitar instructor in the Modesto,CA area. I picked up guitar after hearing cool and awesome guitar riffs and I knew i wanted to sound like that. You can say I was hooked. Studying music and playing the guitar has changed my life. Boost of confidence, patience, dedication and desire to learn were added to my character. The styles of music I teach are RocknRoll, Classic Metal, Blues, Proggressive, Alternative and Punk. Here at Haney Guitar my teaching method is to make learning music fun and entertaining. Being able to play like your favorite guitarists and write great music is not out of the question. I take practical ways to create exercises and song pieces that you can play. No complicated, boring exercises that you wouldn't practice anyway. We are here to make it fun.
Like I said before, I've been playing guitar for a very long time so I would be a really good choice. I also play both acoustic and electric so I can teach either. Plus, I can teach your child their favorite songs, scales, chords and all that great stuff! Thank you and I hope to meet you and your child soon!
