Paul is amazing!!!! He is so patient and supportive as an instructor. So pleased with my decision to hire Paul. He has a great relationship with my 6 year old and I am confident in his ability to teach her how to play the guitar. Paul is so awesome that I decided to take guitar lessons as well! Looking forward to making music with my daughter!!! Thank you Paul!!!

As a first-time guitar player, I thought I could just use the internet to figure out how to play. After a few months of YouTube videos, I wasn't making much progress beyond open chords and basic songs learning became mundane. As a new year resolution I've decided to find an instructor and after I started taking lessons with Steve, playing the guitar started to make sense. He is very patient and uses a practical teaching method, I feel more confident and enjoy learning to play the guitar. I still have a long way to go, but at least the foundation is building up. I would highly recommend Steve to anybody looking for a great instructor that is able to adjust to any skill level.

Paul is a fabulous teacher. Really knows a lot about jazz guitar and working with an ensemble. He is both knowledgeable and patient, and he really pushes you to get the best out of yourself. I have learned so much since working 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.

Omar was a great teacher who made each lesson challenging but fun at the same time. I learned a lot from him in a short time about finger picking and chord progressions, and he introduced me to a lot of perfect songs to learn on guitar that I wouldn't have known otherwise.

Beginner electric bass guitar lessons, 1 hour per week, at Rancho Canyon Music. I have been taking lessons with Lou for two months. Lou is an experienced, knowledgeable, and patient instructor. Additionally, he is personable and has a good sense of humor which makes the lessons fun. Lou finds ways to easily relate a theory or technique to you in everyday terms. He is a formally trained musician who performs regularly for audiences. His training and regular performing, coupled with his teaching techniques makes him my first choice for music instruction. Lou arrives on time and is ready begin working with you, evidence he values your time as well. Lou goes above and beyond for his students by providing in class resources, useful online content, and instructional online videos. All of which I have found helpful and not readily found in other music instructors. Lou can quickly analyze what is happening and provide you with helpful input to help you understand and improve. It is clear to me Lou understands the teaching process. He explains things in a logical order, using building blocks of learning. I would highly recommend Lou to all of my family and friends. An hour lesson is filled with easily digestible information and practical application. My understanding and enjoyment of playing my bass guitar has been energized working with Lou.

I have been a student with Kimberly for ten years. I have been taking blues guitar lessons from her weekly. Kim is extremely professional. She tailors her teaching to the students interest and playing style. She is very patient and often goes the extra mile to help students progress. I have been a dedicated student because of this. I have had the pleasure of playing guitar with some of her other students in ensemble classes who all give her praise for the way she conducts business and teaches her classes. I highly recommend Kimberly Allison of Starliner music to anyone wishing to develop their skills in music.

Saro is a highly experienced teacher. He comes from the prestigious USC Thornton school of music and knows what's he doing! my son first started learning the guitar with another teacher. Later I hired Saro to work with him. The outcome of his teaching was fantastic as my son's playing improved dramatically. His hand positions, tone quality and musicianship highly improved. I definitely recommend taking lessons from Saro.

At the age of 9 my son Julian started to take group guitar lessons from Pat. After that session I ask Pat if he does private lessons, he said yes but its at La Puente. So from Chino Hills I took my son to La Puente every Saturday for the next 5 years. He is very good with kids and I highly recommend him. My son now 18 enjoys writing songs & performing.

Lucas is a very talented musician and teacher. He has taught guitar to both of my kids for the past 5 years. He's patient, fun and willing to tailor lessons to the individual's needs and personal goals. My 13 year old son (who has taken lessons with Lucas since 2nd grade) has learned to read notes, play chords and how to improvise on the guitar through his lessons with Lucas. He plays in our church band and does very well.

Chris started working with my daughter about two weeks ago. My daughter had never played guitar before and was struggling with the basics in her beginning guitar class at school (she has Asperger Syndrome and struggles with sensory issues and basic coordination). From our first communications, I could tell he was going to be a good fit. He asked a million questions and spent a lot of time communicating with me before he even showed up to my front door. Once he got to the first lesson, he was totally prepared. The hour was money well spent and I immediately booked him on a weekly basis. He is probably one of the most positive, supportive, compassionate people that I have ever met and, he has the patience of a saint! He spent an extra half hour, at no charge, teaching my daughter how to restring her guitar after their lesson was over (he even offered to pick the stings up for me the week before - now that’s customer service!). This man really loves what he does and it shows. He is a talented teacher/musician and if you are lucky enough to pick up an hour lesson with him, you will not be disappointed! He. Is. Awesome.

Brian is a really great teacher. I'm a self-taught folk guitar player with a million bad habits and a degree in music and I feel extremely fortunate to have found him. I always wanted to take guitar lessons but had trouble finding a teacher that made me feel comfortable. Brian is super patient, flexible, affordable and gifted-- I'm proud of the improvements I've made so far and I highly recommend him!

Dominic is a great motivator as a teacher in classical and jazz styles for guitar. He has an incredible mind that allowes you to expand what you could do with the guitar. Not only he is a great musician to work with, but a great guy/friend to get to know. It was a very innovating experience working with him!

I had taken guitar classes several times in the past, but always gave up at a certain point. I needed a teacher who would help me get past that point and learn the instrument correctly. Marc turned out to be that teacher. I think he is an excellent teacher and he makes me want to practice and continue learning. Also, the lessons are a real value, especially considering his level of expertise. He's not just a good teacher; he's a good musician, too! I highly recommend him for adults and kids.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
