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 students 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 Im glad I did. I could not recommend him highly enough as an instructor.
I feel grateful for finding Garrick on Thumbtack! He has taught my 8 year old son, who is a beginner at guitar. Garrick's infectious love for life and music has really inspired my son. He has offered a great mix of fun and technique during lessons and my son was quickly able to play songs and enjoy playing his instrument. I would highly recommend Garrick as a teacher.
Sedat is an excellent teacher for my 10 year old. He has lots of patience and knows how to teach kids. He is able to help with easier ways to teach chords and makes the class enjoyable. My child loves his class and he encourages to pick their favorite songs to play. I would highly recommend Sedat for kids guitar lessons.
I would recommend Dylan to anyone looking for guitar lessons for themselves and their children! He is wonderfully patient and very knowledgeable. He will work with you on any song you like and use it to teach technique and theory, thus making it a lot more interesting. We moved about 1.5 hours away and still prefer making the trek for lessons over finding someone local to us!
I have been taking guitar lessons from Jules for several months and am very happy with how much I have learned. All his lessons have educational purposes and he teaches through fun songs that make practicing enjoyable. He is very professional, knowledgeable and flexible with my schedule. I highly recommend him for beginners and experienced players alike. Susan
I'm a beginner to guitar, having played a little piano and drums before. Been working with Chris for a few weeks now and it has been a blast. He's a talented musician who is connected to the music scene. I wanted a guitar teacher who was connected to the local music scene, and so I've really enjoyed working with Chris and even going to see his band perform. I also love how Chris walks through songs and is able to write out the tabs and chords on the fly, and then on top of that show me multiple ways of playing the same song. Highly recommend.
I had a great experience learning with Jackson, he taught me a lot about the guitar that I didn’t know before. Besides that, he too gave really good constructive criticism regarding songwriting and musicianship in general.
I am a beginner and didn't know much about playing Guitar and Music theory. She is a great teacher, she always has a way to make me understand the critical aspects. Within no time Judy has brought me to a level where I could read music and play basic chords and make transitions. Playing guitar is a combination of the lessons you get from your guitar teacher and practicing a lot, judy has been really good in making me focus on the right aspects of guitar playing. So far everything has been great. Looking forward to more great lessons.
We have been working with Ms. White since January 2016. My boys, ages 6 and 7 walked out of their very first lesson knowing “Mary Had A Little Lamb” and this quick, concrete “take away” gave them a sense of excitement and confidence! Ms. White is very thoughtful with her instruction. She has realistic and responsive goals--like helping accommodate a variety of sports seasons and understanding the difference between her student’s temperament and attention span. She has nurtured an intrinsic and age appropriate interest and exposure to the world of piano playing. My boys pick up and play piano on their own and they love teaching their father and me their new skills. I would highly recommend Ms. White for piano lessons.
I started taking guitar lessons with Jack a month ago. I never played a single chord until now and after every class I feel more and more comfortable with the guitar and confident in my abilities. Jack is very patient and tailors his lessons to suite my needs, which I really appreciate. I look forward to my weekly guitar classes - it's wonderful and pleasant working with Jack! I can't wait to tell him the next song I want to learn.
My 10 year old daughter has been taking lessons with Ralph for the last year and he's been great. She's learned a lot and I've found him to be dependable, organized and affordable.
Mike has been giving my daughter guitar lessons now for approximately 4 to 5 months. She is just 9 years old, but he is able to really relate to her and her style of music. More importantly, he has been able to build upon the basics while keeping her engaged and excited about guitar. I HIGHLY recommend Mike!
My three boys play a mixture of guitar and piano. Ryan keeps them interested in playing songs that they pick and want to play. He has made music a fun part of our household.
Very glad to discover this teacher in our area. Very patient - highly recommend
Stefano provides informative and engaging lessons. Guitar lessons are tailored to help reach each student's specific goal, like learning the fundamentals of guitar playing, advanced techniques, or learning a specific style of music like Classical, Pop, Rock, and Blues.
I am still very active in the music scene so my lessons incorporate all past and current styles of guitar playing.
Hi everyone, I am a multi-instrumentalist offering beginner/intermediate guitar, bass and drum lessons for students of all ages in the South Bay area. Many studies show that learning a musical instrument helps improve performance on cognitive tasks, increases the capacity of your memory, fosters your self-expression, boosts your self-confidence, relieves stress and above all else is fun! I am 27 years old and have been involved with various bands and session gigs throughout the Bay Area. I have been playing drums for over 16 years and have approximately 11 years of experience with guitar and bass. I have had many great experiences over the years in teaching music to friends and family. I recently began offering my music instruction services professionally and have had a lot of success with students as young as 7 and as old as 56. My lessons are structured based on your level of experience and musical tastes. I find that it is more fun and effective to integrate music lessons with a student's favorite music. You will not only be learning how to play an instrument but will also learn how to play some of your favorite songs along the way! After a few of my beginner guitar/bass lessons, you will be able to learn the following: Identify and play basic chords Use different beginner guitar/bass techniques such as bends, hammer-ons and tremolo picking Perform basic maintenance of your instrument such as tuning by ear and restringing your guitar/bass Read and interpret guitar/bass tablature Ultimately, my goal with every student is to help make music a lifetime hobby for them. I understand that learning a new instrument can be very intimidating for some people; instead of focusing on more complex topics like scales and music theory, my aim for beginners is to help build up their confidence by teaching fun songs, iconic riffs, fun beats and cool techniques that show immediate results. I offer one-hour instruction of the instrument of your choice (guitar, bass or drums) for $35. This is a flat rate, and I will not charge extra if you have friends or family who would like to learn alongside you during our lessons! Guitar/bass lessons can be taught either at your home, my apartment or a place of your choosing (i.e. coffee shop, park, etc). Drum lessons can only be taught at your home. I have extra guitars that you can use for the duration of our lessons if needed. Please shoot me an e-mail if you are interested, so we can discuss your availability, level of experience and music tastes. Thanks!
I have been a Los Gatos resident for over 35 years, and I have been playing guitar for 45 years. I love to teach all students, from beginners to advanced. I will tailor each lessons to the needs and wants of each individual student, keeping them motivated and excited to learn and play.
I'm a 24-year old songwriter and guitarist from San Jose, California. I became interested in making music throughout my school band programs. Since then, I've never loved anything so much. As a teacher, my lessons go beyond learning scales and chords and countless technicalities. I can help you understand what your goals are as a musician and who you want to be. From there, we'll tailor your lesson plan to cater to those goals. My personal goal as an educator is to help you pave your own path towards a fulfilling life as a creative individual. Given, there are tedious hills to overcome as an aspiring guitarist, but I'll be there to help you through this and straight to the fun stuff in a timely manner.
I offer individualized guitar lessons, theory, guitar maintenance / light repair, and setup for either acoustic or electric guitars. Students may learn any genre, artists, album, period of time, or song(s) and learn how to count, read and compose a chord chart, and convey with others while examining the techniques that have made history. I can take your guitar ability to new levels.
In my lessons, we will be going over guitar fundamentals. Some other things we will go over is ear training. This will teach you to figure out songs on your own. I specialize in the music of Django Reinhardt, but the lessons can be catered towards your own interest!!
