David is a great teacher who isn't doing this for the money but to teach the art of music. He has stayed at my house twice as long as what I payed for and added no extra charge. He also gives a wide range of ways to relate his teachings. (IE. I take bass lessons but we commonly go to the piano to practice and drill) all in all David is a great teacher and highly recommended. Definite 5 stars.

Just finished my 2nd guitar lesson with Steve this week. Steve is professional and very patient with beginners like me. I also really like how he incorporates learning to read sheet music into his lessons.

Kevin has excellent skills in teaching both kids and adults. No matter if your an experience or a begginer. He has been teaching my son for almost 8 months now and there is a signifant improvement in his playing. Im an amature drummer. I play at parties and bars occasionally.I also take lessons from him from time to time when time permits. I would highly recomend Kevin.

"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

It has always been a musical learning experience beyond the notes on the page for me working with Bob. His knowledge of the history of both the instrument and the music, enriches the learning experience. Bob gives more than just quality music lessons. He shares his in depth knowledge and experience earned over a lifetime of playing and teaching in every lesson.

I have known Peppino D'Agostino for 9 years. During this time I have taken finger style lessons from him when our schedules permit. He is very professional yet personable in his teaching. When I make a mistake he corrects me without discouraging me. He is very positive in his teaching and encourages you to improve. He is also very patient with his teaching and can adapt it to any age. Peppino tailors his teaching to your playing level but also gives you a gentle push to try to increase your skills. He is open to teaching you any style of music. He is the consummate professional in performing and teaching. He is my guitar mentor. Dennis Sweeney

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.

I teach jazz piano and its methods and theory. This approach develops reading skills for the lead sheet. Additionally, this will greatly enhance improvisational abilities.

I can take your guitar ability to new levels.

About

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.

About

Whether you're a beginner or have been playing for years, I can make learning fun. Any age, any style, and any ability level. Check me out!

About

Like I said before, I've been playing guitar for a very long time so I would be a really good choice. I also play both acoustic and electric so I can teach either. Plus, I can teach your child their favorite songs, scales, chords and all that great stuff! Thank you and I hope to meet you and your child soon!
