Mark taught guitar to both my son and my husband in our home. Mark was professional and so encouraging in his teaching method. The thing that stood out most to me was Mark's devotion to teaching. He truly wanted to pass along his tremendous talent to his students, and was so proud of their accomplishments. Mark would be an excellent teacher for any student, beginner or more advanced. He rocks!

Jerry Pajel (Mr. J) is a passionate violin teacher. I have been taking violin lessons for one year now, and I must say that I learned so much in my first month of lessons. While teaching, he communicates effectively and makes learning the violin easy!

"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

"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.

    Lessons are fun, and to the point, I teach a little differently, but I can get you playing your first song after four lessons.

    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.

    Have you always wanted to learn how to play the guitar? Well, let me help you with that. I've performed, recorded and taught guitar for nearly 20 years. My lesson plans can be customized to your desired goals. Do you want to learn that song that you just heard on the radio? Do you have an anniversary coming up and you want to learn something special? Did you just broke up with some dude and you want to experience that Taylor Swift song in the best way possible? Again, let me help you with that. It is $25 for a half-hour beginning guitar lesson or five (5) lessons for $100. Per arrangement, lessons will be in a studio or at home. Give me a call, and we'll set something up!
