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.

David Williams has given guitar lessons to our son for many years. We have the highest regard for his teaching and his overall positive influence. David is a highly talented musician and a gifted teacher. Our son has great respect for David's musical knowledge and his thoughtful mentoring--and we do as well. David provides very sound guidance and also works to help students achieve their own specific musical goals. David is a great person and a very fine teacher, and we're pleased to give him our highest recommendation.

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!

Liz has worked wonders with our 10 year old son and his guitar lessons. He loves guitar now and looks forward to each lesson and practicing in between. Liz makes learning fun and easy. She is also flexible with changing schedules and conveniently comes to our home so we don't have to travel. We are very happy we found her on a Thumbtack!

I've known Chris for about 3 years,first as a friend from the neighborhood who shared a passion for the same type music as myself and now as a mentor to my son teaching him guitar and how to be an all round cool guy. His teaching style is totally laid back and covers all types of music.......best illustrated by catching his group "Hibbity Dibbity"in action at many a local venue! Do yourself a favor and let Chris take the stuffiness out of learning! Iainmackinlay

Iam a professional Guitarist and have been taking lessons from Bob for a bout 2 months now. I inicially contacted Bob becaused I had reached an impasse with my playing. Within the first couple of lessons I learned to negociate the fret board with more ease and confidence. Bob has a solid foundation in theory as well as teaching the student the pratical application of the theory. I was able to apply the learning material to my playing almost immediately after my lesson. Bob is very patient and takes the time to explain the material so it is well understood before the lessons are over. I highly reccommend Bob to anyone who wants to take their playing to the next level.

About Jerry: Jerry knows bass. He knows technique, he knows theory, he knows gear, he knows music history (past and present). Most importantly, he knows how students learn bass and thus he is able to tell you what you need to know and what to practice in oder to improve. My Experience: Jerry immediately found the holes in my technique and gave me a few lessons in bass theory that I hadn't already figured out by trial-and-error and applying theory from other instruments. He gave me exercises to work on to improve my chops and get my playing to a higher technical level. He taught me about the intricacies of the bass instrument and the gear associated in creating bass tone. He gave me songs and bass players to listen to and play along to in order to get the basslines I wrote sounding more mature and appropriate for the style/genre of their songs. And all the while he would immerse me in the culture of bass. Turning me on to the history of the instrument, the evolution of how it has been played through the years, the different styles of playing and how they fit into each genre, and of course the great players of the past and present. His body of knowledge around bass is just staggering. About Me: I'd been playing bass for fun for about 10 years at jams and also for about 6 months in an americana band. I'm also a serious keys player and know my music theory solid. Then I started playing bass in a funk/soul band with more technical players and realized I needed to develop some serious chops to keep up. I chose Jerry because he wasn't a guitar-player teaching bass, he's a died-in-the-wool bass player who had been teaching for years. I wanted a specialist, not someone who was going to teach me basic theory.

I have a 10 year old daughter who has recently taken an interest in guitar. Santa Rosa has several places to choose from in regards to music lessons and we are very pleased to have found Dave. As a parent it is very important to find an instructor who is, not only knowledgeable & patient but also engaging & creative. After meeting with a couple of music teachers & inquiring for months on rates, I started feeling completely overwhelmed with over the top prices! It was a relief to find Dave. He is the owner of “Music Biz” in Santa Rosa where he also gives music lessons. On our first meeting Dave was very sweet & courteous. He asked my daughter what music she enjoyed listening to & what she would eventually like to play. My daughter said, “Taylor Swift”, Dave pulled out his iPad looked up one of her songs & began to play “You Belong With Me” on his guitar. My daughter was so surprised & excited, she turned to look at me and said, “I want him to teach me guitar!” It was this first encounter that made me feel confident that Dave was a good fit for my daughter. Dave keeps my daughter interested in guitar by teaching her the fundamentals while exposing her to a variety of music genres. She has been taking lessons with Dave for a little over 2 months & has enjoyed every minute. I would definitely recommend Dave as a music teacher to all my friends & family.

I have had guitar lessons with John Lewis for two months now and I have to say without a doubt, he has exceeded my expectations in every way. Not only is he a very talented musician, he also possesses a rare talent for communicating and teaching guitar and musical concepts that are sometimes hard to grasp. He is patient, kind, encouraging, inspirational, and very creative in his teaching style. He knows how to judge exactly how much information I can handle at one time and I never leave feeling overwhelmed. He always makes the lessons interesting, challenging, and FUN! I am so grateful to have found this wonderful teacher and I highly recommend him to anyone from beginner to advanced. He truly is the Best of the Best!!!

    I absolutely LOVE working with Michael and learning guitar from him. I've tried many times to learn before, and it's never quite stuck. Michael has a way of making difficult concepts seem easy and I'm finally able to grasp music theory. It's always challenging learning something new because I (as I'm sure a lot of people do) feel silly when I mess up or a little dumb if I don't do something right, and Michael makes me feel comfortable and able to make mistakes and try new chords or scales, or whatever it may be. I HIGHLY recommend hiring Michael if you want to learn guitar or just improve your skills!

    My daughter started taking lessons with kyle and after just a few months I was really noticing her playing getting better. He has a good attitude and works well with the kids. Good overall service, especially for how cheap it is.

    The 44th note is an amazing company. My sons guitar lessons were great. He looked forward to the lesson every week. The encouragement he received made him feel good even after the lesson was over. Couldn't of asked for a better teacher. Thank you Jeff for helping my son not only learn the guitar but all feel better about himself.

      About

      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!!

      About

      I have been playing for 42 yrs. Enough said. I like to think that within a song are many lessons and techniques that can teach, but at the same time keep the interest of the student by having fun.
