I've been wanting to take guitar lessons for over a year after winning this great guild guitar and I haven't found anyone that I could really connect with. Took a few classes but from day one I didn't feel a connection and to me thats the most important thing. Day one with Ricky was great. We discussed the different kinds of music that I wanted to play and he even asked to listen to some of my favorite songs to get an idea of my style and we started immediately. It's only been about two months and I can already play a good handful of songs and my confidence has gone up tremendously. I think anyone who's interested in playing guitar should check Ricky out. He also has deals on his rates if you pay in advance. Dalmasy

I have been learning guitar under the guidance of Dave for going on 3 years. I have enjoyed the experience and appreciate his capability to nurture the playing style and likes of the student. Dave finds ways for the student to build and improve with each lesson based on the students interests. From learning about scales, building chords, fundamentals and proper practicing, I also got singing guidance as well as music theory and history. I enjoy coming to lessons each week as I have learned to play songs by many of the artists I admire and look up to, and wasn't able to learn on my own. I continue to grow my passion for music through my guitar, and it helps to have a teacher that recognizes your talents, but offers you suggestions on how to improve. Dave will take the time and patience to make sure you are executing your playing properly, while paying attention to the details and nuances that make the guitar such an emotional instrument. I look forward to many more Guitar lessons with Dave.

I wanted a teacher that could work with an older adult who not had piano lessons since childhood. After many years, I wanted to challenge myself by getting back into piano and I wanted to bring music back into my life. I was a bit nervous about making the commitment and about the time investment that would be required. I also didn’t know a good teacher so I asked around. Howard’s name came up. He was recommended as a patient and knowledgeable teacher that would do wonders with students. Howard’s approach is not the conventional one that I experienced as a child. He presents many types of approaches and uses lots of tools and techniques to build your skills and understanding of the structure of music. Now, I’m stretching myself to learn, remember and apply these skills and it feels really good! I actually enjoy practicing my piano. Now thats a testimony to Howard’s influence! If you are looking for a teacher that can accommodate your needs, encourage and inspire you, meet Howard and try him out. I’m confident that you will be very pleased with him as a professional and as a teacher.

Leila is the best guitar teacher I could have ever asked for. She not only helped me improve my skills overall but supported me in the most caring ways possible. If I ever need a lesson down the line, she will be there first person I’d even consider calling. She’s the best!!!

I've had a handful of music teachers throughout my life and Dory is head and shoulders above the rest. He has a knack for explaining the concepts of music theory with great clarity and enthusiasm. In addition to his proficiency at playing and teaching music, Dory is also very well-organized and attentive. His lessons are focused and purposeful. If you're at all thinking of learning piano, guitar, or music in general I cannot recommend Dory enough!

Daniel has been giving my 10 year old son guitar lessons online for several months now and I couldn't be happier with our experience! The online lessons are extremely convenient for our busy lifestyle and Daniel's teaching technique has captured the attention of my busy body son. He's learned so much these past few months and he loves it! Thank you Daniel!

My daughter had never played an instrument before and, with Mitch's help, she learned to play her favorite songs on the guitar. Mitch is very friendly and reliable. He has tremendous patience with his students, which builds confidence and a feeling of success. I would definitely recommend Mitch!

I have worked with Bob on various levels. First, Bob provided me with private guitar lessons for several years. Bob made the learning experience fun and enjoyable. I was able to learn and play the kind of music that I wanted to play. Bob is also very patience (staying with me for so many years is a true testament to this!). My youngest son Michael also took private guitar lessons from Bob. On a more professional level, Bob and his band performed at my oldest son's (Bobby) wedding receipion. It was a "blast" with all of the guests dancing and singing. I actually received a call years later from an attending guest asking for Bob's contact information for their wedding reception (obviously they had very fond memories of the event and Bob's music). If and when my 2 remaining kids get married, I can guaranty Bob will be going the music. He makes an event a real party!!!

I have known Ms. Macleod for almost a year. My son has been taking piano lessons with Lynne beginning last September. The progress he has made during his seven months with Lynne as a teacher far exceeded any expectations I had and demonstrated to me what a wonderful teacher she is. Ms. Macleod is a very friendly and patient instructor. My son enjoys his piano lessons and is extremely relaxed and comfortable with her. She encourages and coaxes the very best effort from him. The community is extremely fortunate to have a music teacher like her. In my opinion, her prices are extremely reasonable and she is worth every penny she charges and I certainly believe I have received excellent service. It is my great pleasure to recommend Lynne Macleod to you as a music teacher for your children.

I believe that good instructors play less than their students. I am the best guide for my students and let them develop their intuition by being as active as possible in our lessons.

I'm a self-taught musician and have been playing guitar for 12 years now. I study film and television at Boston University but music has always been my greatest passion. I've played in many different bands in Los Angeles and have performed alongside some notable musicians, including singer and VH1 host Janelle Sadler, (Donny Osmond, Natalie Cole), Christy Calabro (Bret Michaels, American Anthem), and bassist Jerry Best (Dio, Lion, and Courtney Love). I've also played at the Key Club on the Sunset Strip. Now, I'm a full-time student and a musician in between projects. I feel that music is something beautiful that brings people together, and I'm eager to share my experience and knowledge with everyone interested in learning the guitar. I'm willing to travel to wherever I can. Lessons are either half hour ($30), or full hour ($50).
