Garrick is very patient and engaging with our 7yo son. Our son loves his guitar lessons and wants to play. He's the real deal with his own gigs and he teaches using music we love. Garrick gets 5 stars because he unexpectedly requested to join us when we purchased our guitar, picked an appropriate used(!) one with metal strings and had it modified to bring the frets in closer for small fingers. His lessons feel customized. We recommend Garrick!

I've been taking guitar and singing lessons with David for a few months, and I've got to say I've had a really great time learning from him! David is an incredibly friendly and knowledgeable teacher who clearly cares about his students and their goals, and better still has played and performed with the artists that I like best. It took me a while to find a teacher who was willing to teach me the music I wanted to play instead of starting with their core competence, so it was really refreshing that within a month or two with plenty of practice I was able to learn one of my favorite songs (Three Rounds and a Sound by Blind Pilot, if you're curious), and a little longer to start singing it, which I was really stoked about. He has been great about breaking things down when the piece we're working on is too challenging. David has also pushed me to pursue my goal of creating music, helping along the way to create melodies and lyrics. I have to say, it takes a great teacher to get me to sing and to share lyrics with them (do you know how embarrassing that can be?). I could go on, but suffice it to say, David is a great teacher, and I'm really glad I started taking lessons with him.

Luck was definitely on my side when I saw an ad posted on Craig's List for Diediet's acoustic guitar services! I was impressed by his background in music and that his self taught talent was further perfected through study with other artists later in adulthood. My communications with Didiet, whether by text, email, or phone was always very professional and cordial. Didiet never missed a beat (pun intended) and always followed up timely so he didn't worry the bride! The icing on the cake for my husband and me was that Didiet learned two of our favorite songs to play during our wedding processional. I didn't want to walk down the aisle with the traditional bridal march and thank goodness I didn't have to. The two things that really stood out in my mind as I walked down the aisle on my wedding day was my husband's smile and Didiet's beautiful music as he strummed Unchained Melody! I highly recommend Didiet for you wedding or other special event if you want acoustic music you and your guests will remember for many years.

Sedat is an excellent teacher for my 10 year old. He has lots of patience and knows how to teach kids. He is able to help with easier ways to teach chords and makes the class enjoyable. My child loves his class and he encourages to pick their favorite songs to play. I would highly recommend Sedat for kids guitar lessons.

My 10-year old son has been taking guitar lessons with Groovy Judy for over 2 years now. Over that time, he has learned to play quite well, but most importantly, he loves his lesson time with Groovy Judy! She relates really well with children and makes the lessons lots of fun! We are so happy to have found her as a guitar teacher!

I watched Forrest grow up playing guitar on his porch across the street from my house. I remember how beautiful his music was, and how much he inspired me to want to play, so I went to the store and purchased a guitar and some instructional tapes, and books, and had a go at learning on my own. I found that self teaching was rather ineffective, so I decided to look for a teacher. The first person who came to mind was Forrest. Turns out he had been teaching guitar for 2 years at that point and was more than willing to take me under his wing! What turned into a few months of going over fundamental chords, turned into four years of lessons! He is the sweetest boy, with the biggest heart.

I've had 3 one hour lesdons with Denis so far. He's been very patient with my slowness since I'm a beginner and can't really read music. He's been very creative in teaching me how to read music and showing me how to move my fingers on the strings. He's very knowledgeable when I ask about the historic guitarists such as Francisco Tarrega and Andre Segovia and many others that I like. Denis is a great teacher and I've signed my 21 year old son up with him to learn to read music and play classical, acoustic and electric styles. He's had many years of experience with all ages. I highly recommend him to all my friends and family, adults and children that maybe interested in learning music! Guitar is the way to go because you can carry it with you wherever you go! :-))

Granada Studios is the place to record. I went to G.S. to lay down some acoustic guitar/ vocals and I was recording in no time flat. FAST, PROFESSIONAL SERVICE, with a smile! They made me feel comfortable and they listened! I can't wait to get back in there!

Seth is exactly what I was looking for. My boys love music and have learned a tremendous amount from Seth, ranging from taking a guitar solo at a live gig to taking the microphone and singing with gusto. My 8 year old takes private drum lessons for less than a year, and we are impressed by how many beats he now knows. It is clear that Seth loves what he does. He is skilled at relating to children and getting them excited to play music. He is fun and light and that carries over I'm his teaching style. We couldn't be happier and highly recommend him.

Cherie is a great instructor. Before I started lessons with her I was trying to teach myself and found that I’d hit a wall, just wasn’t getting where I wanted to be, she helped me out of that rut. She opened up my options by laying down the basics, then expanded my palette based on where I wanted to go with songs and guitar. She likes to balance what she calls the weigh-lifting of guitar and the fun stuff - exercises and songs. I never felt bored or very frustrated. She pays attention. I really felt she was teaching me what I needed to learn. She also teaches singing lessons and we worked a bit on my vocals during our guitar lessons. Was a nice add-on. She’s a pro and very easy to work with.

I have had guitar lessons with John Lewis for two months now and I have to say without a doubt, he has exceeded my expectations in every way. Not only is he a very talented musician, he also possesses a rare talent for communicating and teaching guitar and musical concepts that are sometimes hard to grasp. He is patient, kind, encouraging, inspirational, and very creative in his teaching style. He knows how to judge exactly how much information I can handle at one time and I never leave feeling overwhelmed. He always makes the lessons interesting, challenging, and FUN! I am so grateful to have found this wonderful teacher and I highly recommend him to anyone from beginner to advanced. He truly is the Best of the Best!!!

    I started taking guitar lessons with Jack a month ago. I never played a single chord until now and after every class I feel more and more comfortable with the guitar and confident in my abilities. Jack is very patient and tailors his lessons to suite my needs, which I really appreciate. I look forward to my weekly guitar classes - it's wonderful and pleasant working with Jack! I can't wait to tell him the next song I want to learn.

    Kenny interviewed me and helped me find a comfortable beginning into the world of music. I thought I was going to take guitar lessons; instead, he taught me music with a bit of guitar to go along, and opened up a whole new world of pleasure. Unfortunately for me, I haven't found time to get back to the structured lessons but I play every day because of the things Kenny taught me. I can't imagine a better, or more fun way to learn, than to sit with Kenny and give it a shot.

    I absolutely LOVE working with Michael and learning guitar from him. I've tried many times to learn before, and it's never quite stuck. Michael has a way of making difficult concepts seem easy and I'm finally able to grasp music theory. It's always challenging learning something new because I (as I'm sure a lot of people do) feel silly when I mess up or a little dumb if I don't do something right, and Michael makes me feel comfortable and able to make mistakes and try new chords or scales, or whatever it may be. I HIGHLY recommend hiring Michael if you want to learn guitar or just improve your skills!
