Kevin is a great guy. As an adult wanting to take guitar lessons he made it very easy for me even though I was nervous about taking lessons. He allowed me to play the songs that I was interested in playing and his instruction was great. He is very easy going and never gets upset or frustrated when I could't get it right. His knowledge to change chords of songs to fit my vocal range was also very helpful. He also gave advice on how to improve my vocals. I would recommend Kevin for any age level for guitar and vocals.

I've recently started taking beginner guitar lessons from Mark. So far it's been a great experience, even with my zero musical background. Mark really focuses on making the experience fun and identifies well how to motivate me as an individual, by teaching me songs I'm passionate about and making me understand how the music I like was made. I can only recommend him as a teacher.

Very professional, patient, and competent teaching style. Mr. Dunne put me at ease with my beginning guitar skill level and walked me through the first lesson at a comfortable pace. He took the time to explain the beginnings of music chords and the importance of the why behind the need to learn proper technique. I would recommend Steve Dunne to my friends and family if they were looking to learn guitar.

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!

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.

"I had guitar lessons with the Guitar Institute of Learning for a little over 3 years, and those years were the first 3 years I had in my experience of ever playing the guitar. I learned so much from my teacher. He taught me Jazz Standards, folk songs, and even things that were accommodated to my own interests as well! More importantly, I gained a life changing perspective from the songs, chords, melodies and harmonies that my teacher taught me. The concepts never get old. Guitar Institute of Learning does not just teach you how to play guitar, but how to practice it and how to become a great musician. It can be one thing to play an instrument, but to know how to play with other musicians requires a development of playing with others and applying your knowledge. Which is what guitar institute of learning can help you do. Everything I learned from GIOL literally changed my view and appreciation for music once I became more aware of the music world. I learned things that, once I looked back and realized what I was learning, I was so surprised and grateful that I was shown such great songs. I will always have a gratitude for the class and vast repertoire that they had opened me up to. As a musician, now playing guitar for 8 years, I would not be where I am today without those lessons. Knowing how important practicing everyday is, and finding how you define music will help you find an appreciation and motivation from and beyond these lessons." -Lawrence S. Abbott

George is a "Great Instructor". Taking private guitar lessons with him & in the comfort of my home has truly been a "Blessing". I appreciate & Love his personalized teaching style & the patience that he has, which makes you feel very relaxed & comfortable during his classes. His lesson plans are very clear & what I mostly appreciate is that he's able to identify the different places where his students struggle & is able to help us get better at it. I also appreciate the text reminders he sends the day prior of each lesson. George is a great motivator, encouraging his students to practice, but to also have fun at the same time. I'm very impressed with his teaching qualities and style & highly recommend his classes.

Mike has been giving my daughter guitar lessons now for approximately 4 to 5 months. She is just 9 years old, but he is able to really relate to her and her style of music. More importantly, he has been able to build upon the basics while keeping her engaged and excited about guitar. I HIGHLY recommend Mike!

Steve has all the qualities of a great guitar coach. He is accomplished guitarist, patient with beginners, knows rock & roll and blues history better than anyone I ever met and has brought me from beginner to pretty good blues player in a few short years.

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.

I've had the privilege of taking guitar lessons with Allistair for the past few months. I really enjoy the program that he uses and thankfully he takes his time with me and is very patient because I consider myself a slow learner. His classes are very affordable and I'd definitely recommend it to any beginners trying to learn how to play for the first time! Hope this helps!

Great personalized instruction, where you can learn at your own pace. I came in as an older (in my 50's) student and learned very quickly. I highly recommend Chris as an instructor. He not only teaches music, but music theory and he is very pleasant and patient and attentive as a teacher.. I was playihg acoustic guitar but other instruments are taught there as well.

Mark has been teaching our daughter for three years. She was only 10 years old when she started and was full of questions and hopes of instant mastery. Mark was really patient, answering her questions and building success into each week to sustain her morale while she learned that it doesn't happen overnight. While she is still on the road to mastery, she has grown a trust in Mark to let him set the pace. He reciprocates by encouraging her to practice and influence the pace. I also enjoy that Mark has the flexibility to work with our daughter. His approach allows her to pick some song she likes. He can listen to the song and adapt it into a relevant lesson or teach her the chords and allow her to learn the song. This mixed with the variety of classics and Christian pop songs will make for a well-rounded skill set for our daughter. I have the opportunity each week to watch one of Mark's long time students play and am really impressed at his comfort and skill playing a variety of styles.

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.

I am a beginner guitar player. I originally chose Bob as my instructor based on his background and experience. The technique Bob employs makes it easy for me to follow and most importantly LEARN! Bob provides me with practice exercises that not only expand my playing ability as I practice, they also make learning fun! I truly believe Bob is probably the best guitar instructor in the Bay Area and I would highly recommend him to anyone, young or old, who wants to learn any style of guitar.

It has been some 5+ years that I have had the privilege to be one of Peppino's students. Having laid down my guitar for over 20 years before I met Peppino, I was a little apprehensive to start up again with someone as talented and gifted as Peppino. With an abundance of patience and guidance, Peppino was able to knock some of the rust off my fingers and reawaken my love for the guitar. Peppino has the unique ability to take his students beyond what they thought they were capable of and introduce them to a whole new level of musicianship. He is able to cater his teaching to the needs of each individual student; be they beginner, intermediate, or advanced guitarist. I am truly grateful for all that Peppino has given me so far, and hope to continue under his instruction.

This is cheap guitar lessons for young kids or adults who are looking to get into guitar. I teach note reading, tabs, and other things that are more about the actual instrument, such as the wood, what woods are better, and how to fix your guitar, and change strings. I teach good beginner knowledge.

About

I teach guitar lessons from the very beginning, starting with what is music, and why only with guitar. All the questions are answered and full of feelings, just feel MUSIC in my class. I believe in letting the students feel what is music rather than to learn it. I also teach some Indian traditional songs. The most important part in my lecture is the inner peace that you'll always remember after my class.
