great! iv been getting guitar lessons for a year now and i've learned so much about music and about the guitar and have improved so much as a songwriter and musician.
Rick is a great guitar teacher at any level. He can teach everything from theory to practical playing and make it fun. I highly recommend him if you want to learn the correct way of playing.
David has been thorough, helpful and makes learning guitar fun.
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.
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.
My son has been learning the guitar for about 5 months now. Thru the help of Kevin, he is actually enjoying it. He is actually learning guitar chords and is amazed by the fact that he could actually play an entire song. I would highly recommend Kevin!
We Love Jonathan!! My son Trever started with Piano lessons, and now learning drums, and Guitar!!!
From the few months that I've studied with Craig I have to say he's a pretty amazing guitar instructor. I had been playing guitar for 3 years prior to starting as a student with Craig, but he has taught me more than I ever learned on my own in all that time. In my experience (and from what little I've seen with his other students) he knows how to zero in on a students needs and desires for playing guitar. Students feel at ease with Craig but he also knows how to push someone in order to bring forth their innate abilities. From theory to technique to proper repitoire to guitar history to proper practicing, etc., Craig has given me everything I need to succeed, and I'm only getting started! I'd recommend this man to anyone no matter what their skill level is.
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!
My son and daughter really enjoy Gavin and his approach to learning to play the guitar. He is very patient, kind and above all is interested in the kind of music the kids want to learn; this makes learning to play the guitar much more enjoyable! Gavin also puts on an awesome concert every year giving his students an opportunity to show what they've learned with actual back-up music by his band! He even records the event so you can have a copy of your childs performance! I would highly recommend Gavin for your younger children as well as older.
The 44th note is an amazing company. My sons guitar lessons were great. He looked forward to the lesson every week. The encouragement he received made him feel good even after the lesson was over. Couldn't of asked for a better teacher. Thank you Jeff for helping my son not only learn the guitar but all feel better about himself.
Steven is a fun, gentle and very knowledgable guitar instructor. He taught me a lot the first few lessons and I look forward to working with him every week. He doesn't just teach, he performs regularly too. It's always good to work with someone that puts to use what they teach. It's encouraging working with someone who is so successful in his own music endeavors. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him as a guitar instructor.
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.
AARON IS AWESOME!!! He taught me the songs I wanted to learn and broke them down in a way that made them easy to pick-up.
I love teaching from beginning up to advanced acting principles, voice, speech, movement, improv, and various other fun elements of the dramatic arts. Also, if you're looking for beginning or intermediate guitar, bass or drums, I'm your guy! Are you looking for a band? I've got one! I also have child care experience and can host intermittent afternoons and keep your youngins learning and having a blast!
I am an extremely patient teacher,which I feel is a vital attribute in this profession. I also have experience in several genres of music,including classical,jazz,blues,and pop styles.And,I teach both standard notation and tablature.
I'm creative and cater to my students goals. I am also a Guild Teacher for the national association of piano teachers.
I'm a musician that is proficient in six instruments. I've been in several music groups, so now, I'm dedicated to teach step by step lessons for my consumers to make sure they have a chance, to have the amazing experiences I've had in music. From several techniques and genres, to reading and writing music, I make sure my student succeeds.
I've always felt that most guitar teachers are somewhat one sided. My curriculum consists of both tablature reading and musical notation. Being very strict on not only what is played but the quality it is being played at. I strive for cleanliness in my own practicing and performing and expect nothing less from my students.
Hear me play ,you'll wanna play !
I teach how to play guitar in 12 lessons. I'm bilingual and I can teach individuals 12 years of age up. My method is very simple to comprehend. I have the gift to teach and give the student the enjoyment and excitement to play such a wonderful instrument.
