Steve’s been a great guitar teacher. He’s very professional, punctual and patient. The most important he makes the lesson fun and engaging. Definetly will recommend him to anyone who wants to learn to play the guitar!

Very to the point and knowledgeable about the instrument. He obviously has studied the guitar for a long time and knowing that makes the lessons comfortable and effective.

Brian is an incredibly knowledgable of the guitar and a phenomenal teacher. He is easily able to decipher where you are within your guitar journey and how to help you progress to the point you'd like. Each session is well organized and encouraging. He is punctual, humble and a patient teacher. I look forward to continuing lessons with him and learning more!

Fred was a great teacher. He taught me the basic fundamentals on guitar playing and I definitely feel I've progressed very quickly within one month from having lessons with him.

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.

Chris is an amazing teacher. He really doesn’t like to mess around. Learning how to play the guitar is not an easy task at all, but after just a few lessons with Chris I can guarantee that you’ll feel more confident in your ability.

Eli has all of the qualities you could look for in a teacher: knowledgeable, practical, patient, and adaptive. I had already been playing guitar for years when I came to him for help getting to the next level -- actually understanding and applying music theory to the guitar so I can improv better in a solo or group setting. I am satisfied thus far and look forward to continuing our lessons.

So far I've only had one lesson with Steve but I'm already so excited to begin this journey. Having played guitar for many years on and off being self-taught, it was an incredibly rewarding experience to finally learn the concepts behind what I was playing. In just one lesson I already feel like I'm beginning to fill crucial gaps in my foundational knowledge and that's a testament to Steve's teaching style. He's extremely attentive and receptive to how I'm playing and will adjust his lesson based on what I'm doing well and what I'm struggling with. When you're learning anything whether it's math or guitar, instructional ability is just as important as expertise and Steve definitely has demonstrated that he has both. Looking forward to continuing to grow my skills with him!

Alan is a consummate professional, very kind, affable, affirming, yet persistent, and is extremely generous with his musical knowledge, experience, and expertise. He was exactly the guitar teacher I was looking for, and met me right where I was at, making me feel comfortable and at ease, while working with me re where I wanted to go with studying guitar. He's a great teacher, and deeply passionate about both the guitar and music, in general. Plus, he always gets you excited for how everything he teaches you works together, to help you to shred, with notes from your lesson emailed to you afterward! I highly recommend him!

Brian is an amazing teacher with a very calm demeanor. I am in my 50's and brand new to guitar and he was able to get me to play and understand music and build my confidence. After 2 lessons I'm already playing a Bob Dylan song that I love.

Chris should change his last name from Rockaway to RockSTAR. I’ve taken plenty of guitar lessons from others over the years, but no one had the seemingly psychic ability to assess my playing and prescribe a set of customized exercises the way Chris does. It’s like he knows exactly what you need to stop feeling like a poser and actually get good at guitar. Chris pays full attention to you throughout the lessons, and you won’t feel like he’d rather be somewhere else (wouldn’t we all rather be headlining Coachella??!) Book with Chris now before he realizes he’s not charging half as much as he should be. You will not regret it.

Brian knows his stuff. I think he spent over 30000 hours on the guitar. I usually play him songs I want to learn, he listens for a minute or so and knows exactly how the song is to be played and what he needs to teach me. He is patient and his lessons are fun. I only had a couple of lessons so far but already scheduled the next one for this week. Feels like I found the right guy.

Brian is fantastic! He is calm and patient and clearly very experienced. Of course hearing him play is wonderful...but hearing how my daughter is playing since she began lessons with Brian is amazing. He has gone out of his way to help me find a guitar for her online and at stores. His studio is warm and has nice acoustics. Also a nice place to sit and wait and listen to her lesson. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

I recently moved to LA and had two lessons so far with Lloyd. I have some previous guitar experience, but not much. I wanted to learn a combination of theory and songs, and Lloyd has been giving me a great mix of both. It is refreshing to find a teacher who can articulate principles of music theory in a fun way!

Brian's innate passion and knowledge of music translates directly into how he teaches guitar. His attention to detail, patience, and encouraging attitude creates a fun, relaxed and informative learning environment. If you are starting as a beginner, he will assess your ability and quickly elevate you to the next level through working during the lesson and assigning exercises outside of the lesson. Working with Brian is just as much of an intellectual experience as it is technically challenging. Brian teaches through relevant melodic examples and pop culture comparisons to know how and why an artist made certain chord choices, which keeps the learning process exciting. The benefit of working with Brian is incomparable since he tailors each lesson to suit the clients questions, sound and creative needs. Thank you Brian!

Steve is an amazing and brilliant teacher. I am in my 50's and decided to pick up guitar. I had tried other teachers but it just didn't click until I met Steve. He is fantastic and within a few weeks I was playing some songs and learning a lot about music. I cant say enough about what a great teacher he is.....I look forward to every lesson and I am progressing each time. Who says "you cant teach an old dog new tricks"...Thanks Steve!

I took my first lesson with Steve on Thursday 6/1/17. I'm very happy with him and his approach to teaching the guitar. I've been playing for many years and I know where my short comings are with the basics. Steve is helping me stay focused and rebuild my foundation. Plus he's teaching me how to read music. Which I know will be priceless in the long run with this or any instrument. We are keeping it simple and focus on reading music, music theory and the application of what I already know, but now connecting not just know how to play but the why behind the notes, chords, scales, modes, etc. I feel like a beginner all over again and I'm looking forward to each weeks new lesson. I feel like I've got a capable guide to help me along the way, at and affordable price as well.
