Reviews for Oakland guitar instructors

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 lessons with Andi were always cool. He has a lot of knowledge, and has a easy going approach to teaching guitar. His goal is to get the client to be able to play what their interest is as oppose to pushing his style of preference. Andi will create tab, cord structure and mp3 for the student. He is a great instructor with a lot of patience. As a older guy, I recommend him for students of all ages.

John is an informative teacher he explains the why to learning foundational skills and is a joy to be in conversation with. You can tell that he is passionate about what he does, it’s apparent that he wants to teach and pass down knowledge so that other can share the same love for guitar. I am super excited to see the development of my own skills, I started off with no prior training and after two lessons I feel confident in my growth.

My Two Daughters have been tinkering with guitars and watching youtube but needed some guidance and instructions to get them to the next level. Paul was super responsive and scheduled to meet right away. He sincerely wanted to get to know them and they walked away from their first lesson Inspired and Excited. Anyone who has a 13 year old knows how hard that is. i would very much recommend Paul for anyone who wants to take their instrument to the next level. He is passionate about his work and it shows. If i could give 10/5 stars i would.
