Paul is amazing!!!! He is so patient and supportive as an instructor. So pleased with my decision to hire Paul. He has a great relationship with my 6 year old and I am confident in his ability to teach her how to play the guitar. Paul is so awesome that I decided to take guitar lessons as well! Looking forward to making music with my daughter!!! Thank you Paul!!!

We chose Emo to work with my 11 year old daughter via Skype for voice lessons. She was really nervous to have her very first voice lesson over Skype, and with a stranger, but Emo quickly put her at ease. He’s patient, encouraging, positive, and also really uses the 30 minutes fully. He wasn’t the cheapest vocal coach to respond to my thumbtack but he really knows what he’s doing and maximizes the 30 minute lesson. My daughter is really happy with him as her teacher and so am I!

I have been taking guitar lessons with Paul for about two months now and I feel like I have learned so much already! I am very impressed with his knowledge on music theory and his easy demeanor makes me feel comfortable as I scrape through the chords. He also transposes songs that you request, so you can start learning through those songs instead of just chord progressions. While, also, teaching you how to read the music. I am really proud of my progress and it all has to do with his dedication to me, can't wait to see where I go from here with his guidance! I wholeheartedly recommend him if you are looking to start/get back into guitar.

We decided to chose Brian for my teenage daughter's beginning guitar lessons due to his willingness to teach her the type of songs that she wanted. Right away he connected with her and her music. He taught her the theory behind playing guitar as well as teaching her the tricks and skills of how to play the guitar. His practices were enjoyable and not just rote. She learned very quickly and therefore stayed excited about learning. Brian was always very complementary and encouraging. Brian also helped us buy useful equipment like a tuner, etc. She always felt safe and comfortable. We would highly recommend Brian as a guitar teacher.

Beginner electric bass guitar lessons, 1 hour per week, at Rancho Canyon Music. I have been taking lessons with Lou for two months. Lou is an experienced, knowledgeable, and patient instructor. Additionally, he is personable and has a good sense of humor which makes the lessons fun. Lou finds ways to easily relate a theory or technique to you in everyday terms. He is a formally trained musician who performs regularly for audiences. His training and regular performing, coupled with his teaching techniques makes him my first choice for music instruction. Lou arrives on time and is ready begin working with you, evidence he values your time as well. Lou goes above and beyond for his students by providing in class resources, useful online content, and instructional online videos. All of which I have found helpful and not readily found in other music instructors. Lou can quickly analyze what is happening and provide you with helpful input to help you understand and improve. It is clear to me Lou understands the teaching process. He explains things in a logical order, using building blocks of learning. I would highly recommend Lou to all of my family and friends. An hour lesson is filled with easily digestible information and practical application. My understanding and enjoyment of playing my bass guitar has been energized working with Lou.

I have been a student with Kimberly for ten years. I have been taking blues guitar lessons from her weekly. Kim is extremely professional. She tailors her teaching to the students interest and playing style. She is very patient and often goes the extra mile to help students progress. I have been a dedicated student because of this. I have had the pleasure of playing guitar with some of her other students in ensemble classes who all give her praise for the way she conducts business and teaches her classes. I highly recommend Kimberly Allison of Starliner music to anyone wishing to develop their skills in music.

Saro is a highly experienced teacher. He comes from the prestigious USC Thornton school of music and knows what's he doing! my son first started learning the guitar with another teacher. Later I hired Saro to work with him. The outcome of his teaching was fantastic as my son's playing improved dramatically. His hand positions, tone quality and musicianship highly improved. I definitely recommend taking lessons from Saro.

My two (2) kids go to this school for Piano Lessons. It's a great school with teachers who care and they even got (ONE) of my kids to actually play correctly and she now likes playing the piano. They are strict but have real concern for the students and offer a great environment to excel. I would recommend Donna Lee and her Music School anytime. A+++++++

My son has taken guitar lessons from Patrick for over the past 5 years. During that time my son has developed such an ear for music, an appreciation for the guitar whether it be acoustic or electric, and has gained a tremendous amount of self confidence! Because he can really start jammin! Patrick has been an integral part of shaping the artistic & creative talents that come with learning an musical instrument! My son has definitely gained so much more than he even realizes over the course of those years! Thanks for help in shaping my son!!!

Lucas is a very talented musician and teacher. He has taught guitar to both of my kids for the past 5 years. He's patient, fun and willing to tailor lessons to the individual's needs and personal goals. My 13 year old son (who has taken lessons with Lucas since 2nd grade) has learned to read notes, play chords and how to improvise on the guitar through his lessons with Lucas. He plays in our church band and does very well.

Jason Dennis is a pro level guitar teacher who brings with him a wide array of advanced techniques for multiple styles of music. I am currenly recording an album and needed some help with lead guitar parts. Jason was able to teach me exactly what I needed to learn and then some. I would highly recommend him for all levels of guitar players.

Brian is a really great teacher. I'm a self-taught folk guitar player with a million bad habits and a degree in music and I feel extremely fortunate to have found him. I always wanted to take guitar lessons but had trouble finding a teacher that made me feel comfortable. Brian is super patient, flexible, affordable and gifted-- I'm proud of the improvements I've made so far and I highly recommend him!

Dominic is one of the most enthusiastic teachers I have ever had - he showed not only an interest in me and my level on the guitar, but also an enthusiasm for the instrument and music that was incredibly inspiring for the few lessons I took with him. Highly recommend - thanks so much, Dominic!

I had taken guitar classes several times in the past, but always gave up at a certain point. I needed a teacher who would help me get past that point and learn the instrument correctly. Marc turned out to be that teacher. I think he is an excellent teacher and he makes me want to practice and continue learning. Also, the lessons are a real value, especially considering his level of expertise. He's not just a good teacher; he's a good musician, too! I highly recommend him for adults and kids.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
