I've been taking online guitar lessons on and off for years and Shawn is by far the best teacher I've had. Shawn is a great listener, has endless knowledge, and can tailor your lessons to any style of music you want to learn.

We've had a wonderful experience with Steve! He took on the crazy, odd challenge of teaching guitar to a preschooler with enthusiasm and went above and beyond researching songs and methods online between every class and bringing personalized materials to each lesson. Then when we decided to switch to ukulele he went out and bought himself one and taught himself to play so he could teach my daughter. Truly an incredible teacher!

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.

Going to Peaceland Music has been a very outstanding experience. My teacher, John, is very knowledgable with guitar, piano, and overall music theory. John is a very funny guy and I'm glad I've been taking guitar lessons with him for the past year and a half. He's made learning guitar very fun and interesting. Aside from learning scales and theory, you also can choose a song and John can work on it with you and help you make your performance of it better. But make sure to practice the theory and scales he gives you! You will fall behind very quick, because the lessons build off of what you previously learned. John is very good at working with people at a variety of different levels. It doesn't matter if you're beginning, intermediate, or advanced, he'll work with you at your level and help build on what you know.

I've been wanting to take guitar lessons for over a year after winning this great guild guitar and I haven't found anyone that I could really connect with. Took a few classes but from day one I didn't feel a connection and to me thats the most important thing. Day one with Ricky was great. We discussed the different kinds of music that I wanted to play and he even asked to listen to some of my favorite songs to get an idea of my style and we started immediately. It's only been about two months and I can already play a good handful of songs and my confidence has gone up tremendously. I think anyone who's interested in playing guitar should check Ricky out. He also has deals on his rates if you pay in advance. Dalmasy

Beginner electric bass guitar lessons, 1 hour per week, at Rancho Canyon Music. I have been taking lessons with Lou for two months. Lou is an experienced, knowledgeable, and patient instructor. Additionally, he is personable and has a good sense of humor which makes the lessons fun. Lou finds ways to easily relate a theory or technique to you in everyday terms. He is a formally trained musician who performs regularly for audiences. His training and regular performing, coupled with his teaching techniques makes him my first choice for music instruction. Lou arrives on time and is ready begin working with you, evidence he values your time as well. Lou goes above and beyond for his students by providing in class resources, useful online content, and instructional online videos. All of which I have found helpful and not readily found in other music instructors. Lou can quickly analyze what is happening and provide you with helpful input to help you understand and improve. It is clear to me Lou understands the teaching process. He explains things in a logical order, using building blocks of learning. I would highly recommend Lou to all of my family and friends. An hour lesson is filled with easily digestible information and practical application. My understanding and enjoyment of playing my bass guitar has been energized working with Lou.

Chris is an amazing teacher. He really doesn’t like to mess around. Learning how to play the guitar is not an easy task at all, but after just a few lessons with Chris I can guarantee that you’ll feel more confident in your ability.

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!

I took guitar lessons from Craig once a week for six months. I liked the way the way he set up his Skype camera so I could watch his fingers as he was showing me different chords and scales. I found Craig to be very knowledgeable about all kinds of music and had great answers to my various questions. His personality is very outgoing and entertaining and that made the lessons fun. I would highly recommend Craig to anyone.

I took guitar lessons with Stephan for about 6 months before I moved away from Los Angeles. I was a beginner who had tried to teach myself the acoustic guitar for a few years prior, but I never progressed very far until I started taking lessons with Stephan. I enjoyed the style of his lessons, in that I could choose what songs I wanted to learn and therefore actually want to practice them on my own, while at the same time learning theory that Stephan would weave into lessons. Stephan was great at coming up with the best approach for me to learn any song of my choice for my skill level, while also allowing me to learn new techniques. I was impressed that he was able to figure out how to play songs from a wide range of genres that I chose, and he was really able to pack a lot of information into a 30 minute lesson. I accomplished everything that I wanted from our lessons these past months (e.g. learning different strum patterns, building up a repertoire of songs to play for friends). Stephan is very energetic, positive, patient, and kind, plus it was always very enjoyable to listen to him play. I highly recommend Stephan for guitar lessons!

Our 2 children have been taking piano lessons with Dory for more than a year and it has been an outstanding experience since then. Dory is not only a music teacher (not only for piano btw), he is a musician and a composer. My children have made incredible progresses in piano but they've also learnt to love music, understood the principles of styles, composition, orchestra etc... Dory customizes the approach for each child, always making sure his students progress at their pace and continue enjoying what they do. The studio is very peaceful, well decorated and inspiring. Even for me it's a peaceful and very pleasant moment when I stay there for an hour.

Simrin is a lovely and very good teacher, who made guitar lessons fun for my daughter, she progressed more in a few months being taught by Simrin than the previous tutor of two years. He has patience in teaching his students and his passion for guitar is obvious. I came across Simrin by strong recommendation and I agree entirely.

Our daughter, Emily, took guitar lessons from Kipp Kahlia for over a year and a half. We find it a bit difficult to put into words what Kipp did for Emily. At 16, Emily first enrolled in the Long Beach Parks and Recreation group class taught by Kipp. Kipp had such a comforting, encouraging, and yet “cool” way with the students that Emily asked to take private lessons. Kipp brings to the lessons her knowledge and skill with the guitar, as well as the extensive life skills she has learned. Emily felt comfortable talking with Kipp, and her confidence grew. Kipp helped her in many ways – with her friendships, her relationships in the family, and she also helped Emily in school. As a result of Kipp’s guidance and suggestions, Emily’s study habits improved. She has since passed on those study techniques to her two younger sisters. This was a rough time in Emily’s life, and Kipp was a vital part in helping her grow. We are forever grateful to her

There are great guitar players who teach, but not all of them are great teachers. That's what Scot is. I took lessons from Scot for about 6 months, and I know things that seasoned guitar players don't know. I know where notes are, I know scales, and I know the entire map of the fret board. The basic stuff that everyone should know, not just "put your fingers here and strum". Because of that I can play bar chords, power chords, and I have a solid base for how far I want to take my playing. Highly recommend.

My son has really enjoyed his guitar lessons with Will. Will is professional, yet approachable and easy going. He has let my son pick out songs that he'd like to learn, and that has really helped keep him excited about playing. Highly recommended!!

I have had many guitar teachers, Sam is by far, the best. He isn't just teaching me how to play guitar, he is teaching me how to be a musician. I look forward to my lesson each week.

Before I started working with kelvin, I had exeperienced burnout with my guitar learning. I had been through about three guitar teachers in two years and none of them were able to connect with me as a student. Kelvin took his time to get to know my strengths and weaknesses as a student and made sure to work with them. The bonus? I was finally able to learn how to play my favorite song on guitar and impress all of my friends!
