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.
Sedat is a very patient teacher. He is enjoyable to work with. He is great at teaching no matter how much experience you have. He has great teaching skills and is incredibly talented. I have only taken 3 bass lessons and I have learned so much and can't wait to learn more. I highly recommend Sedat for anyone who wants to learn guitar.
I purchased bass guitar lessons for my Dad with Dylan. Dylan was very thoughtful and responsive. My Dad has had 3 lessons so far and loves it. He had been learning on his own and says things make sense now and he also appreciates the music theory that Dylan incorporates into the lessons. He and I recommend Dylan.
I'm a beginner to guitar, having played a little piano and drums before. Been working with Chris for a few weeks now and it has been a blast. He's a talented musician who is connected to the music scene. I wanted a guitar teacher who was connected to the local music scene, and so I've really enjoyed working with Chris and even going to see his band perform. I also love how Chris walks through songs and is able to write out the tabs and chords on the fly, and then on top of that show me multiple ways of playing the same song. Highly recommend.
I am a bass player who has always played guitar here and there but nothing too serious, and about a year ago decided I really want to know the fundשmentals of guitar. A friend recommended Jacob Light, whom I've heard play before in local bands, and I decided to take the chance. I wasn't dissapointed to say the least. Jacob is a really down to earth guy who immediately understood my musical style and focused mainly on what I wanted to know, unlike other teachers I've had experience with. Even so, he knew what subjects to insist I learn, like improvisation. and scales. all this was done in a friendly, calm, cool yet persistent atmosphere which is just the right blend for learning, in my opinion.Soon enough I started feeling I really understand guitar, and this new kno'ledge even helped me with my bass guitar playing. Ive been taking guitar lessons with Jacon for 6 months and the only downdise I can think of is the fact he moved to California, otherwise I would have still take lessons from him, without a doubt.
Mirco is a fantastic teacher and has the patience of a saint! Not only he's a very talented musician, but his ability to clearly explain, guide and generate passion for learning bass guitar is exceptional.
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.
You can tell that Marc dedicates his life to his craft. He was knowledgeable, professional and had great intro. stories to each of his sets. Recommended!
I started taking guitar lessons from D.D. a couple of months ago and have learned so much from him in the short period of time. He's a great teacher, with a lot of patience. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who's interested in taking up the guitar.

I teach guitar and bass in my home. I also play piano and mandolin. I have eight years of experience in guitar and have played in several bands.
Being a great musician doesn't necessarily equate to being a great music teacher. Teaching requires patience, empathy, and a commitment to understanding how each student learns. I strive to "break through" with each student in a way that opens up musical creativity and the thrill of learning music.
I am still very active in the music scene so my lessons incorporate all past and current styles of guitar playing.
I provide beginner, intermediate and advance lessons for all with music theory and knowledge of instruments, including drums, keyboards and vocals. Lessons will be 3 days in a week except for 60 minutes in the evening.
I am a musician, composer and a guitarist of nearly 20 years. I can offer instruction and guidance on nearly any angle of guitar playing, from basic chords to scales to more advanced techniques, whether its getting the right tone you want or how to emulate certain sounds and styles. Electric guitar technique. Ambient. Indie. Folk. Rock. Metal. How to get the tone you want from your guitar, amp and pedals. How to build stamina on your acoustic. "How you do anything is how you do everything." This is the idea I like to encourage with my students. I try and help you connect your heart and your ambitions to every note you play.
I teach children and adults piano and guitar lessons. I have 3 years of experience teaching and studying music in college.
I have been teaching students guitar for over a decade. In addition, I've worked with some of the biggest names of rock in my career! I focus on teaching rock-and-roll guitar. If you are looking to rock and roll, I'm your teacher!
I am a local professional electric and upright bassist seeking private students. I have fifteen years of experience in performing and teaching. I earned my Master's Degree from the SF Conservatory of Music in Double Bass Performance in 2006 and I perform regularly around the Bay Area. I specialize in classical technique/repertoire and jazz technique/theory. I would also be happy in helping electric bass students learn rock theory, songs, etc. This offer is for serious students only. Beginners are expected to practice fifteen minutes a day. I work primarily out of a home studio in SF, but I am willing to travel. I offer one free trial lesson to gauge student's ability. Pricing is set accordingly to the location of lessons. Other details to be worked out can be done via email or over the phone. Rob
In my lessons, we will be going over guitar fundamentals. Some other things we will go over is ear training. This will teach you to figure out songs on your own. I specialize in the music of Django Reinhardt, but the lessons can be catered towards your own interest!!
