Michael, from my first lesson was so attentive to what I wanted to learn. Kind of in passing, I told him that I loved to sing but was afraid to so he really coaxed me to sing along to all the guitar songs I was learning (I really do not think that any other guitar teacher would have bothered...like "not my job". But, not Michael, he took that on as his job because he recognized that it was important to me). Likewise, when I would show an interest in a particular type of music (i.e. I like acoustic and more mellow, verging on country even), he found songs like that for me and he taught me my songs I had picked even though I doubt that they would have been his picks. In summary, he wanted me to relate to and enjoy the music; the lessons are all about what I want to get out of them...with professional guidance along the way as well. The other thing I want to definitely mention is that, Michael is top-knotch, professional and KNOWS music. He encouraged me to not only learn songs to play but to understand the theory of the music in those songs. I feel very proficient in music theory after taking classes with Michael. I not only play the stuff but I "get it." I understand the technical theory involved. I really think that this is something not every guitar teacher brings to the table or encourages. Many just do not know it! With Michael, we can move from guitar to piano so that he can illustrate something about chords in a key or the difference between major, minor, dominant and diminished chords. Bottom line, I have fun during my lesson but I learn so much more than memorizing chord shapes on the guitar. And, when I play and sing a song...well, it really feels great! Honestly, he is the BEST! He just cares so much about you learning all you can regarding music and he knows how to teach it so that you get to understand what can at first seem so unfamiliar. Michael has the holistic approach. He makes music familiar, logical, relatable and, most of all, Enjoyable. As his student, thumbs-up!
He’s doing an amazing job with my daughter teaching her guitar
Zeth taught me not only how to play bass and guitar, but how to be a musician. He introduced me to different bands and genres and gave me a totally different outlook on music. I definitely wouldn’t be where I am today musically if it wasn’t for him.
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!
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!
So far my daughter loves him. We like that he teaches voice, guitar and song writing.
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
Spencer is a wonderful guitar teacher! He is friendly, knowledgeable of music theory, patient, able to work with kids and adults with a variety of skill levels. He is also quite inspiring and motivating. He made guitar lessons fun and exciting.
Leila is the best guitar teacher I could have ever asked for. She not only helped me improve my skills overall but supported me in the most caring ways possible. If I ever need a lesson down the line, she will be there first person I’d even consider calling. She’s the best!!!
Daniel has been giving my 10 year old son guitar lessons online for several months now and I couldn't be happier with our experience! The online lessons are extremely convenient for our busy lifestyle and Daniel's teaching technique has captured the attention of my busy body son. He's learned so much these past few months and he loves it! Thank you Daniel!
Guitar theory lessons. Mike is a very knowledgeable musician with a lot of patience and a knack for explaining thing in several different ways so as you can grasp the concept of what is being studied. He's very friendly and makes you comfortable while learning what he's teaching you.
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!
My daughter Shavanie has been with at SoundCheck for about two months. First off I must say Dan & Electra are very friendly and down to earth people. My daughter does Vocal & Piano lessons with Electra, she is one of the best music coach my daughter has worked with so far...... I am amazed by her progress. She also does Guitar lessons with Josh, who is also amazing...she is finally enjoying her guitar :) Since my daughter has been with SoundCheck she has shown more excitement towards music vocally and instrumentally. I can't thank them enough! :-) I truly recommend SoundCheck, you will not regret it.
I have worked with Bob on various levels. First, Bob provided me with private guitar lessons for several years. Bob made the learning experience fun and enjoyable. I was able to learn and play the kind of music that I wanted to play. Bob is also very patience (staying with me for so many years is a true testament to this!). My youngest son Michael also took private guitar lessons from Bob. On a more professional level, Bob and his band performed at my oldest son's (Bobby) wedding receipion. It was a "blast" with all of the guests dancing and singing. I actually received a call years later from an attending guest asking for Bob's contact information for their wedding reception (obviously they had very fond memories of the event and Bob's music). If and when my 2 remaining kids get married, I can guaranty Bob will be going the music. He makes an event a real party!!!
If you are serious about music or just want to learn how to play your favorite song then I must recommend Fretrix....I have played guitar and harmonica for over 20 years but had never moved forward or gotten out of my self imposed rut of always playing the things I know and am comfortable with but then came along this little know teacher...I was lucky by chance to hear about him thru a buddy of mine who is a studio musician in L.A. and if he gave this guys thumbs up I had to give it a try.....did not think you could teach an old dog new tricks..well I am wrong...he has propelled me ahead and on new and interesting paths I thought before that I would never find interest in......all I can say is thanks Frets you rock...no seriously you do:)
I have known Ms. Macleod for almost a year. My son has been taking piano lessons with Lynne beginning last September. The progress he has made during his seven months with Lynne as a teacher far exceeded any expectations I had and demonstrated to me what a wonderful teacher she is. Ms. Macleod is a very friendly and patient instructor. My son enjoys his piano lessons and is extremely relaxed and comfortable with her. She encourages and coaxes the very best effort from him. The community is extremely fortunate to have a music teacher like her. In my opinion, her prices are extremely reasonable and she is worth every penny she charges and I certainly believe I have received excellent service. It is my great pleasure to recommend Lynne Macleod to you as a music teacher for your children.
Live 1-on-1 guitar lessons on your computer! All ages and all ability levels are welcome. The concept of webcam guitar lessons is probably new to most people. However, there are actually MANY advantages to doing it this way rather than the traditional "in-person" method... ------- Advantages of webcam vs traditional lessons are: ------- * Save commute time and money on gas! * Convenient - You can do it from anywhere you have internet access. * More for your money - You can record a webcam lesson and watch it as many times as you need. You can also pause, rewind and fast forward! I have a University Music Degree and have been teaching guitar for nearly 15 years now. I cover most musical styles, theory, techniques, reading tab and notation, etc. I have very specific methods, but there is no set curriculum. I teach what YOU want to learn. You are the customer and it's MY job to serve you. My students get fast results because of my proven teaching methods that address and overcome the common barriers people inevitably encounter when studying any subject.
