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.
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.
I have been wanting to learn to play the guitar for years. Finally, this past Christmas I decided to give myself guitar lessons. A little "to me, from me" gift. I found Dave through word of mouth here in Ojai. Multiple people told me he was a great teacher. I have enjoyed my lessons so much! Dave has extensive background in different styles of playing guitar. He is a professional. He is very patient and breaks things down in a way that is easy to understand. I really can't believe I have leaned so much in such a short time. I highly recommend Dave if you want to learn to play the guitar!
I've had a handful of music teachers throughout my life and Dory is head and shoulders above the rest. He has a knack for explaining the concepts of music theory with great clarity and enthusiasm. In addition to his proficiency at playing and teaching music, Dory is also very well-organized and attentive. His lessons are focused and purposeful. If you're at all thinking of learning piano, guitar, or music in general I cannot recommend Dory enough!
My son loves his guitar lessons with Jonathan Snell-Callanen. He is so sweet with kids, and he is so patient and understanding with my son during the lessons.
Cliff is very professional and makes learning the guitar fun and rewarding. Highly recommended!
My daughter had never played an instrument before and, with Mitch's help, she learned to play her favorite songs on the guitar. Mitch is very friendly and reliable. He has tremendous patience with his students, which builds confidence and a feeling of success. I would definitely recommend Mitch!
I have had many guitar teachers, Sam is by far, the best. He isn't just teaching me how to play guitar, he is teaching me how to be a musician. I look forward to my lesson each week.
Bennett has an extraordinary ability to zero in on his student's skills and musical affinities... He has a nerdy, highly precise knowledge of the instrument, of guitar technique and of music history... Months ago I would barely sing with anyone else in the room, and didn't know how to play guitar. This morning I played guitar and harmonized with Bennett on a Stones song. Take music lessons with Bennett - only good can come of it.
What I like best about Lewis is his love for teaching music, patience and sense of humor that he introduces to his teaching. I’m usually pretty tired after a day of work and Lewis somehow puts up with my lack of enthusiasm and pushes me not only to play some tunes but to really understand music while leaving a smile on my face. Different than my previous teacher, Lewis is a composer. His level of understanding of music is above other teachers that just played in rock bands. I’m a very clean person, I left my previous teacher because his messy home and lack of cleanliness. Lewis place is super clean, easy to park and it’s a healthy environment to learn. I couldn’t recommend Lewis enough and I’m extremely happy with the decision to have him as my guitar teacher. Ludiel Santana
Ivan is great... I've just had two lessons and am definitely continuing on!. I've never picked up a guitar, ever and am a complete novice adult. He's extremely patient, and has a thorough and complete knowledge of every aspect of the guitar. He guides you through (albeit clumsy attempts on my part) every aspect of playing, and spends time with you revisiting each chord until it rings out clear. I would highly recommend him on all levels!
Paul is an awesome guitar teacher. He is patient, friendly, encouraging and professional. He is prompt and dependable. He is the best guitar teacher I have had!
My son has been taking lessons as Harmony Music Center for several months. It has been a thrill to watch him blossom in confidence and musical ability. Methods used keep him motivated both inside and outside of class. I am very satisfied with our experience with Harmony Music Center and highly recommend this business.
John was great guitar teacher. I had been playing for 15 years and wanted to expand to jazz and soul stuff. John can play all styles, which was great when I randomly asked him to show me other styles or ideas. He gave me great practice techniques and encouraged my inner player to come out (sounds cheesy, but it's true). In addition to his guitar teaching, he's just a really fun guy to talk to and be around. Thanks, John!
Rami is a highly experienced teacher and great musician. He uses a well-rounded curriculum and very efficient teaching methods. Rami pays careful attention to musicianship. My son’s tone quality and misical taste has greatly improved since studying with him. We are privileged to work with him.
Been taking lessons from Linda for the past two+ years; have learned a lot, including reading some music in both standard notation and tablature. She is talented in teaching middle-aged folks such as myself, and younger ones alike. Always friendly, patient, and reliable. I am learning to play an electric guitar, and plan to continue my studies with Linda as my teacher.
Great teacher, very patient and knowledgable!
