Let me start off by saying, Andi is an incredible teacher. No, he is not magic; but he is capable of steering your guitar education in the right direction. I played guitar on-and-off for many years, it has been lackluster for the most part. Over the years, I’ve watched thousands of guitar lessons on the blackhole that is known as Youtube. Sure, I gained some knowledge, but in a very disjointed way that didn’t seem to push my guitar playing forward. My practice sessions were ineffective and I never seemed to follow a logical path to achieve my goals. I wonder how many self-taught guitarists are in the same boat? Then I started taking lessons with Andi. With some effort (and an instructor to motivate and direct), I begun to truly learn and understand things that I’d been too lazy to tackle in the past (modes, inversions, picking exercises). I’m somewhat embarrassed to say, until I took lessons with Andi; I never completely learned a song. I would pick up fragments of songs, and then move on to the next flavor of the week. Andi will spend weeks (if necessary) reviewing the material with you. He’ll break whatever solo or song you wish to learn down into bite-sized chunks; he’ll even send you slowed down mp3’s to help you learn the material. Trust me, this is very beneficial when learning the subtle nuances that make your favorite guitarist special (Prince, Nile Rodgers, David Gilmour, Mark Knopfler). I have no way of really quantifying the improvement that happened while taking lessons with Andi, but my personal satisfaction has gone through the roof. My fingers and wrists are stronger, my technique has tightened, and my 16th note strumming is getting ridiculously funky these days. I could sing praises about Andi for days, but you don’t you want to try him out and see how it works for you.

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!

David Williams has given guitar lessons to our son for many years. We have the highest regard for his teaching and his overall positive influence. David is a highly talented musician and a gifted teacher. Our son has great respect for David's musical knowledge and his thoughtful mentoring--and we do as well. David provides very sound guidance and also works to help students achieve their own specific musical goals. David is a great person and a very fine teacher, and we're pleased to give him our highest recommendation.

I would recommend Dylan to anyone looking for guitar lessons for themselves and their children! He is wonderfully patient and very knowledgeable. He will work with you on any song you like and use it to teach technique and theory, thus making it a lot more interesting. We moved about 1.5 hours away and still prefer making the trek for lessons over finding someone local to us!

Deborah is a blast to play with and always engages the audience with her stage presence. We play as a duo, guitar and vocals. She has an excellent meter and vocal range as I always hear here hitting all the right notes.

We have been working with Ms. White since January 2016. My boys, ages 6 and 7 walked out of their very first lesson knowing “Mary Had A Little Lamb” and this quick, concrete “take away” gave them a sense of excitement and confidence! Ms. White is very thoughtful with her instruction. She has realistic and responsive goals--like helping accommodate a variety of sports seasons and understanding the difference between her student’s temperament and attention span. She has nurtured an intrinsic and age appropriate interest and exposure to the world of piano playing. My boys pick up and play piano on their own and they love teaching their father and me their new skills. I would highly recommend Ms. White for piano lessons.

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've known Chris for about 3 years,first as a friend from the neighborhood who shared a passion for the same type music as myself and now as a mentor to my son teaching him guitar and how to be an all round cool guy. His teaching style is totally laid back and covers all types of music.......best illustrated by catching his group "Hibbity Dibbity"in action at many a local venue! Do yourself a favor and let Chris take the stuffiness out of learning! Iainmackinlay

I had a great experience learning with Jackson, he taught me a lot about the guitar that I didn’t know before. Besides that, he too gave really good constructive criticism regarding songwriting and musicianship in general.

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 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.

What a gift to have Kayla teaching our child piano! She's incredibly talented both musically and as a teacher. She brings joy and excitement to each lesson and moves our child along at just the right pace. Kayla has brilliantly empowered and motivated our child to practice, play, and even do a little composing of his own! Thanks to Kayla, our child's piano playing and understanding and joy of music have excelled far beyond our expectations.

    I've been self taught for the last few months and would really like to start taking lessons with the goal of trying to learn to play along the lines of Danny Gatton. I don't mean playing exactly like him, but learning to fuse country, jazz, rockabilly and blues into my playing... As well as learning all the nuances of playing a Telecaster. I'm looking to devote a lot of time to trying to master the guitar and home to find someone that has the chops as well as a passion to pass on the knowledge. I'm looking to start asap!!
