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.

Iam a professional Guitarist and have been taking lessons from Bob for a bout 2 months now. I inicially contacted Bob becaused I had reached an impasse with my playing. Within the first couple of lessons I learned to negociate the fret board with more ease and confidence. Bob has a solid foundation in theory as well as teaching the student the pratical application of the theory. I was able to apply the learning material to my playing almost immediately after my lesson. Bob is very patient and takes the time to explain the material so it is well understood before the lessons are over. I highly reccommend Bob to anyone who wants to take their playing to the next level.

Craig Jordan is very possibly the best guitar teacher I've ever had the pleasure of taking lessons from. One of the many things I enjoy about his lessons is that he always has a lesson prepared, with worksheets to go along with it. He tracks my progress, understands where my playing level is, and works with me at that level. Craig is a real teacher, not a wanna-be. If you are ready and willing to put some effort into learning how to play well, I highly recommend him. Hal S.

We were searching for a teacher who did not treat music as a business or "hustle." David is an excellent teacher who is passionate about music and cares deeply about his students. He is not watching the clock. He is more interested in the student learning the concept and stresses fundamentals. If the class runs over the allotted time, he continues and does not charge any more. Instead, his priority is the student learns. David knows theory and teaching fundamentals. My kids enjoyed their time with him and we highly recommend him as a teacher. We went to the piano academies and a few others and never found a satisfactory teacher. However, David was the best and my kids were much better for the experience.

Tammy in a short period of time has helped me find my true voice and bring out the beauty in it. She is extremely technical and pays attention not just to the sound but to your positioning and breathing and so many other details that I often do not think about. She had a solid background education and experience and I completely trust her with my voice and improve my vocal skill set and knowledge of music theory.

Jerry Pajel (Mr. J) is a passionate violin teacher. I have been taking violin lessons for one year now, and I must say that I learned so much in my first month of lessons. While teaching, he communicates effectively and makes learning the violin easy!

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.

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.

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.
