I've been taking guitar and singing lessons with David for a few months, and I've got to say I've had a really great time learning from him! David is an incredibly friendly and knowledgeable teacher who clearly cares about his students and their goals, and better still has played and performed with the artists that I like best. It took me a while to find a teacher who was willing to teach me the music I wanted to play instead of starting with their core competence, so it was really refreshing that within a month or two with plenty of practice I was able to learn one of my favorite songs (Three Rounds and a Sound by Blind Pilot, if you're curious), and a little longer to start singing it, which I was really stoked about. He has been great about breaking things down when the piece we're working on is too challenging. David has also pushed me to pursue my goal of creating music, helping along the way to create melodies and lyrics. I have to say, it takes a great teacher to get me to sing and to share lyrics with them (do you know how embarrassing that can be?). I could go on, but suffice it to say, David is a great teacher, and I'm really glad I started taking lessons with him.
I purchased bass guitar lessons for my Dad with Dylan. Dylan was very thoughtful and responsive. My Dad has had 3 lessons so far and loves it. He had been learning on his own and says things make sense now and he also appreciates the music theory that Dylan incorporates into the lessons. He and I recommend Dylan.
Sedat is a very patient teacher. He is enjoyable to work with. He is great at teaching no matter how much experience you have. He has great teaching skills and is incredibly talented. I have only taken 3 bass lessons and I have learned so much and can't wait to learn more. I highly recommend Sedat for anyone who wants to learn guitar.
Rick is a great guitar teacher at any level. He can teach everything from theory to practical playing and make it fun. I highly recommend him if you want to learn the correct way of playing.
I highly recommend Bob as a music teacher for beginners, folks who play for enjoyment and professional musicians. He enhances the student's experience by focusing on the music student wants to learn. At the same time he intertwines ear-training and music theory with technique. Bob is a great guitar and music teacher. He was my first guitar teacher. In later years mentored me on how to teach music.
I'm a beginner to guitar, having played a little piano and drums before. Been working with Chris for a few weeks now and it has been a blast. He's a talented musician who is connected to the music scene. I wanted a guitar teacher who was connected to the local music scene, and so I've really enjoyed working with Chris and even going to see his band perform. I also love how Chris walks through songs and is able to write out the tabs and chords on the fly, and then on top of that show me multiple ways of playing the same song. Highly recommend.
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.
It has been some 5+ years that I have had the privilege to be one of Peppino's students. Having laid down my guitar for over 20 years before I met Peppino, I was a little apprehensive to start up again with someone as talented and gifted as Peppino. With an abundance of patience and guidance, Peppino was able to knock some of the rust off my fingers and reawaken my love for the guitar. Peppino has the unique ability to take his students beyond what they thought they were capable of and introduce them to a whole new level of musicianship. He is able to cater his teaching to the needs of each individual student; be they beginner, intermediate, or advanced guitarist. I am truly grateful for all that Peppino has given me so far, and hope to continue under his instruction.
Beautiful duo! Right on spot music selection. Thank you!
My daughter takes bass lessons from him and she seems to enjoy it quite a bit and that's saying a lot. She's an awkward turtle at best and the fact that she continues to willingly take lessons from him means that she's actually comfortable enough around him to productively learn. That's also a testament to his patience, since knowing my own daughter, she can be difficult to get through to at times. She's learned a lot in the short time that she's taken lessons from him and she tells me that he explains concepts in a way that makes it easy to understand and grasp. I plan to have her continue taking lessons from him throughout high school.
Very glad to discover this teacher in our area. Very patient - highly recommend
Chris is a wonderful music teacher. I called him for Bass lessons, I started Lessons the same week. By the end of my first lesson I was playing a 12 Bar Blues rif. I would recommend him to anyone that wants to learn guitar. He also taught me to read music.
Best Bass Teacher and Bassist Inna The Bay
My name is Thomas. I've been playing guitar for over 15 years now. I want to teach students to play what they want while also learning the basic fundamentals of guitar. If they want to learn their favorite pop song I'm going to teach them it, if they want to become an amazing guitar player I will teach them how to become that as well.
I am a local professional electric and upright bassist seeking private students. I have fifteen years of experience in performing and teaching. I earned my Master's Degree from the SF Conservatory of Music in Double Bass Performance in 2006 and I perform regularly around the Bay Area. I specialize in classical technique/repertoire and jazz technique/theory. I would also be happy in helping electric bass students learn rock theory, songs, etc. This offer is for serious students only. Beginners are expected to practice fifteen minutes a day. I work primarily out of a home studio in SF, but I am willing to travel. I offer one free trial lesson to gauge student's ability. Pricing is set accordingly to the location of lessons. Other details to be worked out can be done via email or over the phone. Rob

I am a music theory and guitar instructor. I teach using the various goal oriented methods that have proven themselves to work in the musicianship and playing of both myself and my students. I offer a money-back guarantee. I have never taught someone who hasn't grown as a musician and/or guitarist after studying with me. I have formal training in most styles of music, and I am happy to teach all levels of advancement. I also offer group lessons which is a great way to save money for two or more students that are at similar levels.
I am a musician, composer and a guitarist of nearly 20 years. I can offer instruction and guidance on nearly any angle of guitar playing, from basic chords to scales to more advanced techniques, whether its getting the right tone you want or how to emulate certain sounds and styles. Electric guitar technique. Ambient. Indie. Folk. Rock. Metal. How to get the tone you want from your guitar, amp and pedals. How to build stamina on your acoustic. "How you do anything is how you do everything." This is the idea I like to encourage with my students. I try and help you connect your heart and your ambitions to every note you play.
I provide private guitar and bass lessons. I am a professional, reliable, and patient Berklee College of Music alumni and Sonoma State Universtiy graduate. I have 20 years of experience in teaching and performing professionally.
