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.

Just finished my 2nd guitar lesson with Steve this week. Steve is professional and very patient with beginners like me. I also really like how he incorporates learning to read sheet music into his 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.

My son has been learning the guitar for about 5 months now. Thru the help of Kevin, he is actually enjoying it. He is actually learning guitar chords and is amazed by the fact that he could actually play an entire song. I would highly recommend Kevin!

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.

Craig has taken me from a self taught, stuck, going nowhere fast guitar player. To someone who is constantly improving on guitar. One of the great things about Craig is that he pushes your skills. Meaning he'll give you a song out of your comfort zone to keep you moving. Another thing I like about his lessons is that he tailors lessons around your goals for guitar.

My son and daughter really enjoy Gavin and his approach to learning to play the guitar. He is very patient, kind and above all is interested in the kind of music the kids want to learn; this makes learning to play the guitar much more enjoyable! Gavin also puts on an awesome concert every year giving his students an opportunity to show what they've learned with actual back-up music by his band! He even records the event so you can have a copy of your childs performance! I would highly recommend Gavin for your younger children as well as older.

Having played the guitar for more than 30 years, I wanted to be able to take my abilities to the next level. Andrew Tintle at Roseville Guitar Lessons has a unique and definitely successful way of addressing each guitarist's needs and skills - from beginner to expert. I have learned - and my playing skills have progressed - more in the past six months than in the previous 20 years. Andrew works individually with each student to develop a program that addresses how that guitarist wants to progress. Andrew has developed a "Learn by Doing" program that allows each student to address specific skills, then take those learned skills and apply them in real-time playing. Over the years I have taken a variety of lessons from different instructors, and I can say without a doubt that my time with Andrew/Roseville Guitar Lessons has been the best investment of my time and money -Andrew has taken my guitar-playing to levels I had not been able to achieve. For anyone - beginner to expert - looking to advance their guitar-playing skills, I would highly recommend Andrew Tintle at Roseville Guitar Lessons!!

Rich Ayala has been the best guitar teacher my son has ever had. Rich has taught him more in two years than he learned in three years with other instructors. Rich has a way of letting the student learn the rudiments of the guitar while teaching music the student wants to play. We also like him on a personal basis.

JJ is a very accomplished guitar player and a very good instructor. Not only can he play guitar, but he's also great at mandolin, banjo and the pedal steel guitar. I would gladly recommend him to any friends or family wanting to learn how to play any of these instruments.

Kevin is a great teacher. He's incredibly patient and encouraging, and explains things in a way that's easy to follow even as a novice. He never makes me feel inadequate or makes me doubt my abilities. His musical talents also go beyond playing and teaching guitar- he can play other instruments as well, knows all about recording, and has a vast knowledge about music in general.

Well, I teach guitar. I can teach the basics -- chords, notes, scales, structure, and timing. I can also teach any style for those who want to know more.

About

I love teaching from beginning up to advanced acting principles, voice, speech, movement, improv, and various other fun elements of the dramatic arts. Also, if you're looking for beginning or intermediate guitar, bass or drums, I'm your guy! Are you looking for a band? I've got one! I also have child care experience and can host intermittent afternoons and keep your youngins learning and having a blast!

About

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.

About

Hello! My name is Jesse Szabo, and I've been playing guitar for almost 10 years and professionally for 3 years. I use an extremely personalized approach to teaching that utilizes my students' strengths and weaknesses to round them out as a player. Whether it's theory, note reading, soloing, or just want to have fun learning your favorite song, we can do that. I'm excited to meet you and start learning! If you are learning on an electric guitar, all I ask is that you have some kind of amplifier at your residence because I cannot bring an extra. Other than that, I will determine what materials we need.

About

I am a guitar teacher! I have been playing for over 10 years in and out of live bands. I can play and teach a wide variety of musical styles in both acoustic and electric guitar. I can also teach ukulele. I am flexible with my scheduling! I charge $100 per month. That gets you one 30-minute lesson a week. I can teach kids or adults at most skill levels. I teach out of my apartment.
