Paul Grether is a very talented musician and teacher and a great person. He is wonderful with kids. He is sweet, smart, motivational, caring and funny. My 9 year old son loves him and loves his guitar lessons. He gave up tennis to have two guitar lessons a week. Paul is so affordable to top it off that we are able to afford two one hour lessons a week. I am thrilled to pieces. Anyone would be lucky to have guitar lessons with Paul.

We have a child diagnosed with slight autism. We decided to get a private teacher at home due to the experience of a teacher bullying him in a music school located in Chino. Mr. Garcia has all the patience in teaching our son and he knows how to adjust his teaching lessons with him. Our son is always excited to get music lessons with him. Mr. Garcia is also teaching our 18 y/o daughter guitar. And she is always happy and contented with his teaching techniques. Thank you for doing a great job with my children.

Sid gave guitar lessons to my daughter (14). He was recommended to us by a friend who has a 12 year old son that Sid taught. He is a great teacher and I can tell he is good at relating to kids of all ages. It is obvious, Sid has an appreciation and a passion for music and I would highly recommend him to anyone!

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.

I've been taking guitar lessons with Kimberly since the beginning of 2011. At the time I'd had several years of lessons using a traditional method on acoustic guitar and was looking for a teacher who could help me focus on electric blues rock and move me beyond my intermediate skill level. Kimberly has a real focus on and talent for teaching. My lessons are tailored to meet my interests. A large part of the lesson is devoted to learning her method for blues soloing--at least 5 approaches to improvisation and comping. After several years, I've come to see how these approaches interweave, complement each other and have become an intuitive part of my musical vocabulary. Also, because I expressed an interest, part of the lesson involves sight reading, learning blues and jazz theory, developing rhythmic playing sense, and learning a few favorite solos. Kimberly has an amazing ability to tab out and teach any song you give her. Which leads to the best part--after 6 months I was invited to play with one of her ensemble classes. While I was absolutely petrified with fear at the beginning, this has turned into one of the highlights of my week every week. It is just downright fun! It's a safe and forgiving environment where you can make mistakes and learn, or try things out that might flop, or turn into something cool. Every teacher and guitar magazine article all point to the need to play with other musicians to develop your skills and this is where Kimberly Allison really delivers. I feel that I could now sit in with other musicians and contribute. I give my highest recommendation for taking lessons with Kimberly.

At the age of 9 my son Julian started to take group guitar lessons from Pat. After that session I ask Pat if he does private lessons, he said yes but its at La Puente. So from Chino Hills I took my son to La Puente every Saturday for the next 5 years. He is very good with kids and I highly recommend him. My son now 18 enjoys writing songs & performing.

Chris started working with my daughter about two weeks ago. My daughter had never played guitar before and was struggling with the basics in her beginning guitar class at school (she has Asperger Syndrome and struggles with sensory issues and basic coordination). From our first communications, I could tell he was going to be a good fit. He asked a million questions and spent a lot of time communicating with me before he even showed up to my front door. Once he got to the first lesson, he was totally prepared. The hour was money well spent and I immediately booked him on a weekly basis. He is probably one of the most positive, supportive, compassionate people that I have ever met and, he has the patience of a saint! He spent an extra half hour, at no charge, teaching my daughter how to restring her guitar after their lesson was over (he even offered to pick the stings up for me the week before - now that’s customer service!). This man really loves what he does and it shows. He is a talented teacher/musician and if you are lucky enough to pick up an hour lesson with him, you will not be disappointed! He. Is. Awesome.

It's only been a few weeks since I began experiencing Dan's teaching, but, right away, I knew he'd be the perfect fit. He is not only clearly knowledgeable and experienced but exudes passion and really loves what he's doing, which makes me love learning to play guitar even more. With his help, I'm confident that my skills will continue to increase and I encourage anyone to let Dan prove this to you in person.

Lucas is a very talented musician and teacher. He has taught guitar to both of my kids for the past 5 years. He's patient, fun and willing to tailor lessons to the individual's needs and personal goals. My 13 year old son (who has taken lessons with Lucas since 2nd grade) has learned to read notes, play chords and how to improvise on the guitar through his lessons with Lucas. He plays in our church band and does very well.

Keith teaches my son beginning guitar lessons and has been great. He is patient and really individualizes our lessons for my sons specific needs. He brings hand outs which is great-my son can practice on his own, and if we ever forget something or can't figure out how to play something he is very open to questions anytime.

Jason is awesome. It started out with my daughter taking lessons from him, now it's both of us. First of all, my daughter Lauren is 5 years old. 5. Literally just started Kindergarten. She can't read - but she can do a power chord. That's all due to Jason's help. It takes serious patience to teach a five year old how to play guitar. Not just patience... but Jason is a pleasure to have in our home. He's great with my daughter. And... great at teaching an adult too. I've only been playing guitar for a few months, but people think I've been at it a while.

Dominic is a great motivator as a teacher in classical and jazz styles for guitar. He has an incredible mind that allowes you to expand what you could do with the guitar. Not only he is a great musician to work with, but a great guy/friend to get to know. It was a very innovating experience working with him!

I meet him at his little studio for about half hour, went over my goals I had as a bass player no Charge. Im a 50 year old man who's been tring to learn bass. Have lots of books and computer aids like songster,Ultimate guitar pro,ect.. . He found my main weekness and started to work on it. In 4 weeks i have learned more than i have in 3 years. His lessons are fun and very informative. Highly recommend Evan Chudnow very professional. If you want to learn bass you need a teacher, books alone and computer aids don't cut it. I should have gotten myself a teacher 3 years ago instead of spend money on books and computer aid. There no substitution like having a good teacher and having the satisfaction of seeing Progress in such a short time. Thanks Evan !!

We are so lucky to have met such an outstanding, caring and friendly music teacher. Kelly Apgar and her wonderful array of instructors make music lessons fun and enjoyable for my three daughters, who take piano, guitar and, voice lessons. Within months of taking music lessons, my daughters were reading music and playing songs! An added benefit to working with Elite Musique is that they prepare students for passing the Royal School of Music exams. Kelly and her staff are nurturing and patient with their students. Kids learn how to play an instrument while developing the love of music!

Awesome place for kids to learn and master the art of music... My daughter took guitar,piano and voice lessons... Unfortunately we had to move and she can no longer attend... I wish they would open a location near Riverside so my daughter could continue with her art education... If you're looking for professional and affordable music classes for your kids then Piano Place Music and Arts Center is the right place for them. I am happy that my daughter had the opportunity to be a student at this family owned music school and I hope she can come back in the near future..... Beautiful family and very nice/professional teachers!

I had taken guitar classes several times in the past, but always gave up at a certain point. I needed a teacher who would help me get past that point and learn the instrument correctly. Marc turned out to be that teacher. I think he is an excellent teacher and he makes me want to practice and continue learning. Also, the lessons are a real value, especially considering his level of expertise. He's not just a good teacher; he's a good musician, too! I highly recommend him for adults and kids.
