Our son has been going to Gaving and Grayson at UpRock for over a year now and loves it plus is making great progress. This is all due to the great instruction and how the staff relate to younger students and they make it both fun and interesting personalizing the songs to the kids tastes and generally demonstrating a passion for their role as instructors. I am very impressed and would have no hesitation in recommending UpRock for your guitar lessons.

I have been playing guitar for around 20 years, mostly self taught. Over the years, I have tried out various lessons (online, multiple teachers, etc). Never have I experienced such an organized, thoughtful approach to learning your instrument than with Jason Bond. I've been with him for around 6 months. He can cater to your needs, but I prefer to follow his lead. It is like going to your own private music school (Jason is studying for his PhD in music). I am covering the basics of jazz and improving my theory, but also improving my blues/rock abilities. Jason will end your search for the ultimate guitar/music teacher! Also a great guy, thoughtful person, whom I now consider a good friend.

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.

I have been a student at Roseville Guitar Lessons for over a year. I initially joined Andrew at RGL because I was stuck in a rut and needed to be challenged. Andrew is a very dynamic instructor; extremely professional and will certainly get you engaged and excited about playing. Andrew works well with all ages and levels of experience. No matter your skill level, he can make you a better guitarist. I highly recommend Andrew if you are serious about getting better. Dan

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.

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.

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.

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.

It is quick, easy, interactive, fun and painless. My goal is to have you with me for less than 3 months. In that time I want to see you independent, confident and and having fun with your instrument. Possessing the skill and tools you need to do anything you want musically. Here is a little about my teaching method: Fender Play is designed to change the way beginning players learn how to play guitar through hundreds of easy-to-follow, instructor-guided video lessons utilizing a song-driven, personalized learning path that enables even brand-new players to master chords and riffs in minutes. “Ninety percent of people who pick up the guitar will drop out after one year, and we see Fender Play as a solution to that challenge” said Ethan Kaplan, General Manager Fender Digital. “This intuitive platform, as a practice supplement to in-person lessons, allows first time players and beginners to get started. It allows them to learn when and how they want in a digital setting with superior production and accuracy far surpassing your average online lesson video.

    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.
