About

Garrick is very patient and engaging with our 7yo son. Our son loves his guitar lessons and wants to play. He's the real deal with his own gigs and he teaches using music we love. Garrick gets 5 stars because he unexpectedly requested to join us when we purchased our guitar, picked an appropriate used(!) one with metal strings and had it modified to bring the frets in closer for small fingers. His lessons feel customized. We recommend Garrick!

About

Andi is a really awesome guitar instructor. I started guitar lessons with him with absolutely no experience playing an instrument or knowing how to read sheet music. But because he is really patient, knowledgeable, and at ease with teaching, I have been able to pick up how to play the guitar and reading the tab handouts he gives me after each lesson. He goes at the student’s pace and is willing to change his lessons to teach what new songs I want to learn. After each lesson I am always inspired and reminded why I wanted to take up guitar lessons in the first place. Andi was the very first instructor I met and I’m glad I did. I could not recommend him highly enough as an instructor.

About

I contacted Robert as he is one of the few guitar instructors that I found willing to work with my 3 1/2 y.o. boy. Through the communication process, I ended up wanting to learn guitar myself, and it has so far been a great experience. He's very understanding of our little guy and has been an excellent instructor to for this beginner student. He also gets my little guy even more excited about guitar lessons.

About

I initially thought about looking into lessons with Garth after I saw him perform. He's truly an incredible guitar player with a style that is uniquely his own. It's probably why he's been invited to play with legends such as Miles Davis. Shortly after seeing Garth perform, I was playing at a party and happened to meet a guy who said he was a bass player and had only very recently taken up guitar. So when he began playing in an impressive manner, I asked him how he got so good, so quick. His answer was that he'd been taking lessons from Garth. I'd heard enough. I booked lessons with Garth and have been taking lessons with him ever since. Garth's teaching style is very player friendly. He understands that the ultimate goal is to acquire the ability to make great music and to have fun doing it I've had some good teachers in the past, but I've never enjoyed the experience as much as I do with Garth. He's very laid back and able to break down licks and techniques in a manner that is easy to grasp. He allows me to record my lessons and each day I look forward to reviewing the material that we covered. I would highly recommend Garth to anyone looking to learn guitar.

About

I have taken bass lessons from a handful of instructors over the years. Ariane is different. She has explained things to me that I have either never heard or never understood in new ways that help me to connect the dots. She makes the lessons fun and always challenges me and encourages me to stretch myself while giving me to the tools to do so. Do not hesitate to give hear a test drive.

About

Dave's a great teacher and guitarist and fun to be with. He's very encouraging and inspiring. I took several lessons from him, and always had fun while also learning things in the process - and I'm an experienced guitarist. You can tell Dave loves what he does. I recommend his lessons for guitarists at any skill level. I watched him teach my brother, who is a beginner, and Dave was great with him, too.

About

I've been taking classical guitar lessons with Mark for nearly a year now. I met with a few different teachers around the Bay Area and decided to go with Mark, and I have been very happy with that decision. He's friendly and cheerful, takes a structured, well thought out approach to teaching, and of course plays beautifully himself, which always helps inspire me to improve my playing. I think he has a great breadth and depth of teaching experience and it shows, and it's that experience, along with his charisma, that separate him from other teachers. I've improved tremendously since I started working with him -- leaps and bounds above what I'd accomplished in four years of learning on my own -- both as a guitarist and as a musician in general.

About

I create a unique curriculum for each of my students based on their individual interests and needs. All of my students get a strong base in practical theory, technique, and rhythmic awareness. I teach musical styles ranging from pop, jazz, and blues to rock, folk, and funk. Students are encouraged, but not required to read music. My holistic approach to teaching ensures that students get the theory, technique, musical awareness, and aural development necessary to become a strong musician. My students learn to fix and adjust their own instruments and, when applicable, how to use various electronic effects, such as reverb, delay, distortion, etc. I encourage a productive practice routine, and help students organize their time while working on new materials and just playing for fun. Whether you or your child have never played guitar or bass, or you have been playing for years and want to keep learning, I will help you gain knowledge and fulfillment from music!

About

I've been teaching guitar and music theory since 1991 in almost all styles which include rock soloing and rhythm techniques, blues, beginning jazz as well as various finger style genres such as folk, classical and flamenco. I teach beginner to advance students. I often use the student's favorite songs to incorporate theory and technique. I am patient but thorough and always respectful and professional. I believe in trying to pass on my strong love of music alongside essential musical knowledge. To me, music is about joy, passion, meditation, healing and self expression. I've been hooked since the age of 8!
