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.
Chris is a skillful instructor who will help you develop guitar techniques in the first lesson. I needed help with the basics and he helped me improve on the fundamentals and groundwork of the guitar. Highly recommend!
I've started taking lap steel guitar lessons with Paul a few weeks ago. Initially I was very intimidated by the lap steel, however through Paul's knowledgable and patient instruction learning the instrument no longer seems like an impossibility. Paul clearly explains concepts and never loses his patience (even when I'm about to do so). Lastly, his pleasant and positive personality make challenging material enjoyable for someone who, musically speaking, should probably be wearing a helmet outdoors.
Base is reliable, punctual, and jumps right in when he arrives! He is focused on the student and pushes them (even if shy) with kindness and humor to grow and learn. My daughter is 12 and really enjoying her vocal lessons with him. We think he's great!!
Davey is a great teacher! He really got to know our daughter and tailors her lessons to best suit her. He teaches her how to read music while also giving her a chance to have fun with her guitar. Her lesson is the perfect balance of reading music and practicing from her book along with fun jam sessions with Davey.
I am taking private lesson with Mike Smith. He is a very talented and patience guitar instructor.I am very happy with the quality of guitar lessons I have received from him so far. I highly recommend him to anybody who would like to take guitar lessons.
Steve is a phenomenal teacher. He is really knowledgeable and makes learning guitar a fun and creative experience!
Damien has been a great teacher. I've taken guitar lessons from him for about 6 years. It's nice to know that i have a teacher who is passionate about what he's doing and will always explain everything in an understanding way. He's encouraged me in my song writing and has developed and produce one of my own songs. I highly recommend him for your teacher!
Wonderful school and Amazing instructors! My son took piano lessons here for over a year. We would recommend it to all our friends.
I had the pleasure of receiving masterful guitar lessons from James Musser. He is by far one of the most insightful guitar teachers I have ever had the pleasure of taking lessons from. He is very concise in his instructions. His teaching strategies are great he really customizes the lesson to fit the students needs. I recommend anyone to him whether you are a beginner or and advance player.
Kimberly Allison is the best guitar teacher I have had. I have thought what it would have been like to have taken guitar lessons from Randy Rhoads or Joe Satriani. Kimberly is my Rhoads and Satriani. I'm getting world class lessons under her tutlage. I wish I would have taken my first guitar lesson with her.
I’ve been playing and recording for 35 years and I’ve worked at a high level with some very talented people. I’m not going to name drop because it doesn’t matter, and if I were you it would stop me from reading the rest of this, but if you care about your music and want to put it in the hands of someone who has mad skills as a engineer/producer, and one of the best set of ears in town, then at least do yourself a favor and go meet and talk about your project with Andrew. He’s top shelf, cares about the music, is an incredible musician and multi-instrumentalist to help with vocals, guitar, or keys, and lays down some tasty bass & drum tracks. Best thing is he’s a great guy and an amazing partner to have in the creative process.
Steve is a wonderful teacher. When I started lessons I had been playing for a while but I needed guidance on where to go from just basic chords and strumming patterns. Steve tailored my lessons to the genres I wanted to study while giving me exercises that would better my study no matter what direction I chose to go. We even started coupling the guitar lessons with banjo lessons! Steve is well versed in so many genres and instruments and on top of that, he is a friendly, patient and fun person who communicates well and is easy to get along with.
Great guitar instructor who teaches you notes, different strumming techniques, picking, how to read music and is a wealth of knowledge on music of all kinds and is very personal and will adjust to what you would like to learn. I would highly recommend Mark to anyone wanting to learn guitar or master it.
