Guitar lessons for my daughter are going very well. I sat through her first lesson and very much liked his teaching style. One thing I liked was that Bryson's aim was to bring in a drummer and bassist once she got the basics down so that she could get used to playing and jamming with other musicians which is my daughter's goal anyway, so, she's very pleased.

Tim has been a wonderful guitar teacher for my daughter. His lessons are more than just guitar lessons. He brings rhythm and music theory into the education. He is generous with his knowledge, he is flexible with times and locations, and he is enthusiastic. It's been a great value and an experience well worth it.

I've been taking guitar lessons for a while now and I really like the way Mike approaches things. Rather than just teach me to copy other people's music, he teaches me the tools needed to make my own music. He explains what he is teaching me, and why, and he breaks things down to make learning simple...oh, and he is super cool and easy going! If you want to learn to play guitar, or anything else, I can highly recommend Mike and Eravox Studios.

Paluzzi guitar instruction has A+ instruction. I started as a complete beginner (didn't even know how to hold a guitar) and within ten lessons Kevin Paluzzi of Paluzzi Guitar Instruction taught me the entire guitar basics section from the first volume of one of the books he published and taught me 5 complete songs along the way. He gives you access to his books as well as online audio resources. Overall A+ experience.

Glen comes to our home to teach our ten year old once per week. He is great with our son and has sparked an enthusiasm in our son that has him so excited about playing the guitar and learning about music! Glen is also a very talented musician - but I'm mostly impressed with his ability to connect with our son. I would HIGHLY reccomend Glen as a music teacher.

Before taking piano lessons with Rebecca, my only experience with musical instruction was through elementary and junior high. Rebecca's training and personal dedication to music makes her an extraordinary teacher. We use the Suzuki books, which I love because that's what I used for violin and flute. She supplements those favorites with really nice adult-learning-centered books on theory. As an adult learner, this was helpful, because I could read through these brief books, but then had the terminology to look up my questions online or know what to ask in lessons. The lessons are so fun and well organized. We work on the songs in the books (which included CDs of the songs so you can hear what the song might sound like if you practice enough) and she would help me with songs I brought in too. Rebecca is so kind, and is great with my five-year-old too. Really, Rebecca is an excellent music instructor. Her academic background, many years of actually playing piano and singing, knowledge of the music available and books, and variety of students -- all make her a versatile teacher, capable of helping anyone learn to the play the piano in whatever style they are interested in. Plus, she is an incredible person. I look forward to piano lessons with her.

When I started taking guitar lessons over 5 years ago, I thought it was just going to be a fun hobby. But now it's my passion. The way that RBSOM organizes this company is truly inspiring. From the lessons to the concerts, it's what makes everything for together. The teachers are amazing! They never have a bad thing to say and they really like to get to know each student on a friendship level. The concerts are also a great way to meet people just like you! You almost never have the same band for each song or concert. Age doesn't matter when you are have a great time laughing and playing some music.

Ian was awesome at teaching guitar, specially his skills and knolwedge, he made sure that the theory was not too dry and boring in order to help me maintain my motivation. I would take lessons again when i have the opportunity.

Bernie has been a great drum teacher for my two daughters. He is dedicated, committed, fun and with a great teaching attitude. Always arrives on time and ready to start. A big plus for Bernie, is that my 2 daughters have autism, and he is able to engage with them pretty effectively, and redirect them when needed, as their attention and focus shifts. I fully recommend him for Drum lessons and for kids in the Autism spectrum!

I've been taking guitar lessons from Joe for several months now and am really happy with him. He’s knowledgeable, is a very skilled guitarist and is very motivating. He’s focused on building technical skills while at the same time making sure that you're having fun doing it. His attitude is that if it’s not fun, you won't practice, and if you don't practice, you won't learn. I highly recommend him to anyone who is seriously interested in learning guitar.

Vanessa is such a great teacher! I’m learning guitar and singing from her and she is SO helpful! She really cares about my progress as a musician! Vanessa takes her own free time to customize lessons for me, which is so amazing. My guitar playing has improved so much with her help. I was a total beginner when I started, and had trouble pressing my fingers down on the strings. Now, I’m playing songs that I like, reading music, and feeling proud of my accomplishments – I can play guitar and sing at the same time! Since I started lessons with her, I’ve become so much more confident as a singer. Her training has been amazing! My range, tone, and breath control are so much better. She’s an awesome teacher!

I just started working with Michael and I already feel more confident and have more fun playing the guitar than I had in almost a year. His immense love and knowledge of music is astounding and he translates that into lessons that make me excited to learn more. He is very approachable, highly responsive and extremely flexible. I cannot recommend Michael enough to begin or continue your musical education!

My son Max has been taking lessons with Ed for several years now and we couldn't be happier. Ed is an awesome music teacher with many talents. His knowledge of playing in a band has been a great help for my son. Ed will jump in and play the bass line with Max if needed. I love that he can teach vocals, guitar, bass, and drums and get in there and jam with my son, too. Ed's awesome! I'd highly recommend him if you're looking for a music teacher. Terry

My 15 year old daughter, Kennady, has been taking lessons with Aaron for the better part of three years now. She considers him her "music coach" for lack of a better term. He helps with everything from songwriting, voice, guitar to anything he can do to make her a better performer and to be the best at her craft that she can be. Aaron has a unique ability to really bring out the best in his students and help them become stronger in every aspect of their craft. Aaron Bowen has without a doubt been the best thing to happen for Kennady in her brief musical career so far.

I have never met another person as dedicated to his craft and the seeking and furtherment of his skill. His knowledge shows not only with his incredible ability to play but also with his professionalism and patience with his pupils. I not only recommend his expertise but I implore that you take advantage of his education if you have any interest with learning the trade.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
