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.

Omar was a great teacher who made each lesson challenging but fun at the same time. I learned a lot from him in a short time about finger picking and chord progressions, and he introduced me to a lot of perfect songs to learn on guitar that I wouldn't have known otherwise.

Eddie taught me to play the guitar when I was in my 50's! Being an older student I had my insecurities but he put my mind at ease and my fingers to work! I was soon playing my favorite songs! His humor and easy nature and talent brings out the best in his students! He is a master!

Abigail U.
Verified review

Hello, My name is Abigail. I’m 11 years old and have been taking guitar lessons from Damien for about 2 years now. He has taught me how to read music. I have learned step by step, no rushing into music whatsoever. In the beginning of my lessons, Damien gave me a booklet/guitar notebook to record every lesson. My first lessons were basically getting to know music and my guitar. The next couple of lessons he began teaching me how to play simple songs like “Twinkle-Twinkle,” “Happy Birthday” and “Mary Had a Little Lamb.” Further on, Damien allowed me to choose a couple of my favorite songs, which he then taught me how to play. I definitely recommend any beginners to attend his lessons because you will not regret it.

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.

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.

Davey is a great teacher! He really got to know our daughter and tailors her lessons to best suit her. He teaches her how to read music while also giving her a chance to have fun with her guitar. Her lesson is the perfect balance of reading music and practicing from her book along with fun jam sessions with Davey.

I took both guitar and ukulele lesson from Kenny at the Ed Brown Center over a two year period, and found him a fine teacher. I learned a lot, and enjoyed my time in classes with him. He also formed us into a group to play for special occasions like July 4th. He's a good guy, loves teaching.

I exchanged a few messages with Laura about the possibility of taking guitar lessons. She responded quickly and answered all of my questions. Unfortunately, I am only in town for a short amount of time, and things did not work out. I definitely recommend Laura if you're looking for someone who is kind, professional, and easy-going!

Bobby John is a great teacher. He was able to recognize my intermediate skill level and appropriately design lessons tailored to my ability. We are currently working on multiple strum / picking patters as well as some theory working toward a goal of learning Jazz and Blues guitar. His unique teaching style is great because it is both fun and rewarding.
