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 have been taking guitar lessons from David Williams for a few months now. I always look forward to my classes with him. He is a professional who is patient and understanding. Besides instructing me on guitar, he is also teaching me how to sing! He teaches me what I need to learn on the guitar in order to advance my knowledge. He is also open to me bringing in songs I want to play. He is a supportive teacher who is sincerely interested in his student's learning. He breaks down complicated musical concepts in a step by step process that enhances student confidence and mastery. I highly recommend David Williams.
We are very please with Didier guitar playing performance during my dental office open house, his music no only created a comfortable ,elegant and relaxing ambient but he was willing to take request accommodating my guesses . We are looking forward to have his music for my next event.
Michael is a great music teacher and my kids just love him. My son and daughter take guitar lessons and my granddaughter piano lessons. He is very patient with them. He is encouraging and connects with them on a personal level. He gives them good advice about where to get the best equipment. He will often spend time with them restringing their guitars before a practice.He pulled parts from two old guitars we had and made a guitar for my son. When my son was ready to move up to a better guitar, he found us a great deal on a stratocaster. We have been with Michael for five years and would not think of going to another music teacher.
Deborah is a blast to play with and always engages the audience with her stage presence. We play as a duo, guitar and vocals. She has an excellent meter and vocal range as I always hear here hitting all the right notes.
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
Rick is a great guitar teacher at any level. He can teach everything from theory to practical playing and make it fun. I highly recommend him if you want to learn the correct way of playing.
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!!!
My 12 year old son has been taking classical guitar lessons from Matt for a year and a half. Matt is an extremely patient, enthusiastic, and encouraging teacher. He is great at creating a relaxed and comfortable environment in which to learn and I appreciate how clear he is on what my son is supposed to practice each week. I have no reservations about giving Matt a 5 star rating. Our experiences with him have been outstanding.
My experience with Atemu at Mu-Sick Beats was very good. Atemu taught me vocal lessons and music theory, and I learned an incredible amount from him. He is extremely knowledgeable about music, and very professional, and packs every lesson with depth and insight. He has a way of knowing exactly where you are and delivering what you need... he really tunes in. I walked away from every lesson feeling inspired and excited to dig in even more. I highly recommend Atemu and Mu-Sick Beats Jam Studio as a great source of musical knowledge and inspiration.
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.
It has always been a musical learning experience beyond the notes on the page for me working with Bob. His knowledge of the history of both the instrument and the music, enriches the learning experience. Bob gives more than just quality music lessons. He shares his in depth knowledge and experience earned over a lifetime of playing and teaching in every lesson.
great! iv been getting guitar lessons for a year now and i've learned so much about music and about the guitar and have improved so much as a songwriter and musician.
If you're looking for a chill teacher who is both knowledgeable and passionate about guitar, music, and teaching, but isn't a strict task master, Rado's your guy. I consistently recommend guitar lessons to any friends who bring up wanting to learn to play or better their skills.
My 10 yr. old daughter has been taking guitar lessons with Geoff since Oct. 2015 and I am very impressed with what she can play. She even takes it upon herself to learn new songs on her own from rock 'n roll to pop. Geoff is a very talented musician and teacher. He works great with kids and is able to adjust to the student's skill level. He is very patient, speaks softly and makes guitar playing interesting and fun. He's also very flexible with adjusting his time when it comes to schedule conflicts. John V.
Cherie is a great instructor. Before I started lessons with her I was trying to teach myself and found that I’d hit a wall, just wasn’t getting where I wanted to be, she helped me out of that rut. She opened up my options by laying down the basics, then expanded my palette based on where I wanted to go with songs and guitar. She likes to balance what she calls the weigh-lifting of guitar and the fun stuff - exercises and songs. I never felt bored or very frustrated. She pays attention. I really felt she was teaching me what I needed to learn. She also teaches singing lessons and we worked a bit on my vocals during our guitar lessons. Was a nice add-on. She’s a pro and very easy to work with.
Jan's guitar was the perfect background to our evening. His style makes it easy to socialize without having to compete with the music. His easy jazz was so nice to listen to. At one point we asked him to turn up the volume a little because once inside our venue, he played softly and we wanted to hear the beautiful music.
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.
Conrad was an incredible teacher for my son. Lessons were always fun and he was very patient, allowing my son to learn at his own pace. My son always looked forward to his lessons as the highlight of his week. Conrad is also very good at teaching a variety of styles from rock to jazz. Highest possible recommendation.
Sam is great - a real laid back style but deep grasp of music. I've advanced in a very short period of time.
