David is a great teacher who isn't doing this for the money but to teach the art of music. He has stayed at my house twice as long as what I payed for and added no extra charge. He also gives a wide range of ways to relate his teachings. (IE. I take bass lessons but we commonly go to the piano to practice and drill) all in all David is a great teacher and highly recommended. Definite 5 stars.

David met me today to pick my guitar and was a huge help in getting the right guitar for me and a couple of other things. I look forward to my weekly lessons with him with my beautiful new guitar.

Our son has been going to Gaving and Grayson at UpRock for over a year now and loves it plus is making great progress. This is all due to the great instruction and how the staff relate to younger students and they make it both fun and interesting personalizing the songs to the kids tastes and generally demonstrating a passion for their role as instructors. I am very impressed and would have no hesitation in recommending UpRock for your guitar lessons.

Guitar lessons in Roseville California. My instructor was ready, on time, prepared, and clearly knew what he was talking about. Their prices are reasonable, and their studio is clean and well maintained. I think they are a good place to learn guitar.

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.

It has always been a musical learning experience beyond the notes on the page for me working with Bob. His knowledge of the history of both the instrument and the music, enriches the learning experience. Bob gives more than just quality music lessons. He shares his in depth knowledge and experience earned over a lifetime of playing and teaching in every lesson.

Bob is the best guitar teacher I have ever met. He's positive oriented, energetic, enthusiastic, student centered, patient, motivating, and a great musician in his own right. Whether you're a beginner or a professional, you will learn quickly and enjoyably from this teacher.

Chris Lee has been teaching my 11 year old son since May 2011. He’s been instructing my son in the following areas: • Electric guitar, • Bass guitar, • Harmonica, and • Reading/writing music. Chris is very patient and keeps my son motivated. The lessons are exciting which keeps my son interested and yearning to learn more. This helps in my son practicing without it being a chore. Chris encourages his students to write their own music using the computer and lined note sheets. He also gives my son confidence in his musical aspirations. I feel that Chris’ methods of instruction have helped my son excel in the musical area. My son is ready to begin taking a Jr. College level Music Theory class because of Chris’ instruction.

I have been playing guitar for around 20 years, mostly self taught. Over the years, I have tried out various lessons (online, multiple teachers, etc). Never have I experienced such an organized, thoughtful approach to learning your instrument than with Jason Bond. I've been with him for around 6 months. He can cater to your needs, but I prefer to follow his lead. It is like going to your own private music school (Jason is studying for his PhD in music). I am covering the basics of jazz and improving my theory, but also improving my blues/rock abilities. Jason will end your search for the ultimate guitar/music teacher! Also a great guy, thoughtful person, whom I now consider a good friend.

Jason has been an excellent instructor. I look forward to our weekly meetings because he is always easy to work with and I leave having learned something new. Very knowledgeable and eager to teach no matter what level you are at. I asked him to help me improve my improvisational playing and he's given me lessons plans that start with the theoretical basics and build up to playing along with jazz standards. Overall very satisfied with my experience!

I have been taking lessons with Jason for about 4 years now, and I have loved every minute of it. Jason is a phenomenal guitar player and has become a very close friend. I have learned a lot about playing the guitar with Jason, different techniques and different songs, as well as the theoretical knowledge to back it all up. Jason can turn anyone into a pro. He's the best.

The 44th note is an amazing company. My sons guitar lessons were great. He looked forward to the lesson every week. The encouragement he received made him feel good even after the lesson was over. Couldn't of asked for a better teacher. Thank you Jeff for helping my son not only learn the guitar but all feel better about himself.

Jeff is an amazing guitar instructor! He is able to relate to students of all ages - young and 'not as young'! Jeff has an upbeat vibe and positive energy. He keeps the younger students engaged by allowing them to pick the songs they want to learn. Every lesson is a fun experience!

Steven is a fun, gentle and very knowledgable guitar instructor. He taught me a lot the first few lessons and I look forward to working with him every week. He doesn't just teach, he performs regularly too. It's always good to work with someone that puts to use what they teach. It's encouraging working with someone who is so successful in his own music endeavors. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him as a guitar instructor.

Just stopped by to say thank you for the awesome job you did at our recent anniversary party celebration. Our friends are still talking about how much fun they had and how they didn't believe they had ever had that much fun dancing a night away (we couldn't agree more)! From your willingness to locate our (impossibly hard to find) special song to breaking out the guitar at the most appropriate of moments - wow, what a night it was! We really weren't sure it was worth it to hire a DJ - we now know better. Thanks again!

I am the lead guitarist in the band Fate Under Fire and I can help give you advice in becoming a musician.


Attention: Please contact me via text or email. I have been playing guitar for about 10 years, and I wish to share my knowledge. I specialize in teaching how to write original music. I have been performing live music since 2005, touring around the United States. I enjoy teaching beginner guitar courses to show basic chord progressions and how to incorporate those into writing original music. My teaching philosophy is that I like to make my students aware of the best guitar chords and techniques for a beginner to start with, which will make them familiar with the process of the big picture; a large part of that is also teaching what the student wants to learn. This approach makes the student want to continue playing and practicing the guitar, as opposed to sending them home with all different types of exercises, which can seem overwhelming and, sometimes, boring. Each one of my students receives a 10-minute CD with fun drum beats to play along with (when the time is appropriate, everyone learns at a different pace), as well as session recordings to teach them some basic recording techniques and to listen to what they have been learning. I hold lessons at my home in Dixon, CA, which is the most appropriate place to start with the lessons. I am willing to travel within a reasonable distance in the surrounding areas (additional fees will apply). I have a few packages to choose from. Standard rates are $40 per 1-hour session or $140 per month for 4 one-hour sessions per month. Also inquire about 30-minute sessions.

Hello, my name is Demetri. Put my 20+ years of teaching experience to work for you. My teaching method (Fender Play) is the latest and most effective way to learn guitar. It is quick, easy, interactive, fun and painless. My goal is to have you with me for less than 3 months. In that time I want to see you independent, confident and and having fun with your instrument. Possessing the skill and tools you need to do anything you want musically. Here is a little about my teaching method: Fender Play is designed to change the way beginning players learn how to play guitar through hundreds of easy-to-follow, instructor-guided video lessons utilizing a song-driven, personalized learning path that enables even brand-new players to master chords and riffs in minutes. “Ninety percent of people who pick up the guitar will drop out after one year, and we see Fender Play as a solution to that challenge” said Ethan Kaplan, General Manager Fender Digital. “This intuitive platform, as a practice supplement to in-person lessons, allows first time players and beginners to get started. It allows them to learn when and how they want in a digital setting with superior production and accuracy far surpassing your average online lesson video. Courses in these paths focus on a song-based method, teaching foundational core techniques and riffs alongside lessons for recognizable hits from music’s most-esteemed artists and bands, such as U2, Shawn Mendes, the Rolling Stones, Foo Fighters, Meghan Trainor, Carrie Underwood and more. The program boasts a vast catalog of hundreds of songs arranged specifically for players at various skill levels. Please let me know how I can help

Most clients enquire as to which model I teach from, or which style of instruction I employ, I tell them none, because no student is alike, and no one's talent is the same. I instruct for th purpose of learning. I modify my lessons and means of instruction for each student. Each lesson you take will be personalized to you as the individual, and the day.

I offer guitar lessons for beginner and advance students. Learn music theory and techniques and tone searching.

Learn music reading, music theory, and bass guitar lessons by an experienced bass player. I have been a musician since 1965.


I've always felt that most guitar teachers are somewhat one sided. My curriculum consists of both tablature reading and musical notation. Being very strict on not only what is played but the quality it is being played at. I strive for cleanliness in my own practicing and performing and expect nothing less from my students.

Hi, I'm Ken Billeci. I have been performing and teaching music in the Sacramento region for 25 years. I studied classical guitar for four years at CSUS, two of them under professor Richard Savino. I also studied jazz guitar under various accomplished musicians, including Henry Robinette and Michael Musillami. I produced a CD of original compositions called "Funky Brain", which features the well-known drummer and clinician Mike Johnston. Currently, I am a rhythm guitarist for the Django Rheinhardt inspired gypsy jazz group "Jazz Gitan", playing at public and private events all over Northern California. I love teaching interested students of all ages, from 8 to 80. Learn notation, scales, rhythm concepts, composition and more!
