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.

This is my fourth attempt at guitar lessons. The others, though semi successful, were not particularly interesting nor invigorating. This has been a much different experience. The lessons are actually fun...FUN...to do while the entire guitar is being used immediately! I have learned so much and I finally understand the big picture. I can begin to conceptualize what I'd like to hear and do, then actually do it. Before I was just following music or chord progression sheets without being able to put it all together, just go from one song or exercise to another. I still have a long way to go, but I can see the difference! Andrew's personality and approach causes me to push myself more than before, because I am not playing at guitar, I am actually playing. I also like and appreciate how Andrew adapts the guitar education to each person's skill and aptitude. Offering classes that are "jam" sessions is a lot of fun and increases the focus while learning important techniques and concepts. I have not taken all of the various classes yet, but I am certainly intending to! If you have put your guitar down because it got boring or you got too busy, time to dust it off and join the fun! If you've never picked up a guitar because it seemed hard or you felt that you would never amount to the artists on the radio, come try it out. You will not be disappointed! It is worth this investment in your time and yourself.

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!

Craig is an excellent guitar instructor. He tailors my lessons to my music al interest, and is the only teacher who helps me focus on mental preparation (for performance confidence). He has helped me develop physical techniques such right hand exercises, looping practices for increasing tempo and learning the fretboard. Playing the notes of music is just one part of playing an instrument... playing with dynamics makes the music more alive and enjoyable. Craig has taught me this as well. When I met Craig 15 months ago he told me he could help me to become a musician vs. a guitarist. I'm on my way because of Craig's interest in me as an individual and his genuine encouragement. I want to practice everyday because I'm excited to see my improvement through specific drills and methods. Craig has taught me how to practice which is incredibly important.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

About

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.

About

I teach how to play guitar in 12 lessons. I'm bilingual and I can teach individuals 12 years of age up. My method is very simple to comprehend. I have the gift to teach and give the student the enjoyment and excitement to play such a wonderful instrument.

About

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.

About

My name is Jordan, and I am 22 years old. I have been playing guitar since I was ten. My goal is to bring motivation to newcomers to the instrument. I still remember what it's like to start learning and a really big part of learning is staying motivated. I'm here to keep motivation up by raising excitement while learning how to play.

About

I am an online guitar instructor with over 15 years of guitar experience. I have over 18,000,000 video views and over 31,000 subscribers. I get hundreds of requests from kids wanting me to teach them certain songs, preferably thrash metal tunes.

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

Games, supplemental pages and other manipulative work are used in introducing new materials and reviewing concepts.

About

    I've been playing the guitar for about 8 months and ready to make the jump to taking lessons. I have broad tastes in music but would really like to focus on capturing the early grunge sound along the lines of Alice in Chains as well as developing my fingerpicking/ hybrid picking ala some of Eddie Vedder's and John Frusciante's solo stuff. Basically, trying to help me develop some skills that will allow me to get out and play. I'm looking for an instructor with alot of experience in both playing live and teaching, someone organized who has lessons and curriculum planned ahead of time, rather than just winging it, and someone who is located in SF. If someone thinks he/she fits the bill... Please keep in touch with some info on self, teaching style, and rates. I'm ready to start asap.
