Our son has been going to Gaving and Grayson at UpRock for over a year now and loves it plus is making great progress. This is all due to the great instruction and how the staff relate to younger students and they make it both fun and interesting personalizing the songs to the kids tastes and generally demonstrating a passion for their role as instructors. I am very impressed and would have no hesitation in recommending UpRock for your guitar 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.

This is my fourth attempt at guitar lessons. The others, though semi successful, were not particularly interesting nor invigorating. This has been a much different experience. The lessons are actually fun...FUN...to do while the entire guitar is being used immediately! I have learned so much and I finally understand the big picture. I can begin to conceptualize what I'd like to hear and do, then actually do it. Before I was just following music or chord progression sheets without being able to put it all together, just go from one song or exercise to another. I still have a long way to go, but I can see the difference! Andrew's personality and approach causes me to push myself more than before, because I am not playing at guitar, I am actually playing. I also like and appreciate how Andrew adapts the guitar education to each person's skill and aptitude. Offering classes that are "jam" sessions is a lot of fun and increases the focus while learning important techniques and concepts. I have not taken all of the various classes yet, but I am certainly intending to! If you have put your guitar down because it got boring or you got too busy, time to dust it off and join the fun! If you've never picked up a guitar because it seemed hard or you felt that you would never amount to the artists on the radio, come try it out. You will not be disappointed! It is worth this investment in your time and yourself.

JJ is a very accomplished guitar player and a very good instructor. Not only can he play guitar, but he's also great at mandolin, banjo and the pedal steel guitar. I would gladly recommend him to any friends or family wanting to learn how to play any of these instruments.

About

I teach most guitar styles, rock, blues, folk and classical forr electric or acoustic guitar, including pick or fingerstyle methods. I use OTC materials whenever possible such as Hal Leonard guitar method, Sagreras for classical and play along tab books w/cd for experienced players. I teach music theory as it pertains to the songs being studied so students can developed and do their own thing. I started playing guitar at age 10. I have 40 years experience playing in all types of groups. I've taught guitar full time for 7 years and still enjoy the work very much. I charge $95 per month for (4 half hour lessons).

I teach in a way that compliments a students strong points yet improves weaknesses. I never teach a 1 way fits all lesson plan.

About

Attention: Please contact me via text or email. I have been playing guitar for about 10 years, and I wish to share my knowledge. I specialize in teaching how to write original music. I have been performing live music since 2005, touring around the United States. I enjoy teaching beginner guitar courses to show basic chord progressions and how to incorporate those into writing original music. My teaching philosophy is that I like to make my students aware of the best guitar chords and techniques for a beginner to start with, which will make them familiar with the process of the big picture; a large part of that is also teaching what the student wants to learn. This approach makes the student want to continue playing and practicing the guitar, as opposed to sending them home with all different types of exercises, which can seem overwhelming and, sometimes, boring. Each one of my students receives a 10-minute CD with fun drum beats to play along with (when the time is appropriate, everyone learns at a different pace), as well as session recordings to teach them some basic recording techniques and to listen to what they have been learning. I hold lessons at my home in Dixon, CA, which is the most appropriate place to start with the lessons. I am willing to travel within a reasonable distance in the surrounding areas (additional fees will apply). I have a few packages to choose from. Standard rates are $40 per 1-hour session or $140 per month for 4 one-hour sessions per month. Also inquire about 30-minute sessions.

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

Rich Ayala has been the best guitar teacher my son has ever had. Rich has taught him more in two years than he learned in three years with other instructors. Rich has a way of letting the student learn the rudiments of the guitar while teaching music the student wants to play. We also like him on a personal basis.

Hello, my name is Demetri. Put my 20+ years of teaching experience to work for you. My teaching method (Fender Play) is the latest and most effective way to learn guitar. It is quick, easy, interactive, fun and painless. My goal is to have you with me for less than 3 months. In that time I want to see you independent, confident and and having fun with your instrument. Possessing the skill and tools you need to do anything you want musically. Here is a little about my teaching method: Fender Play is designed to change the way beginning players learn how to play guitar through hundreds of easy-to-follow, instructor-guided video lessons utilizing a song-driven, personalized learning path that enables even brand-new players to master chords and riffs in minutes. “Ninety percent of people who pick up the guitar will drop out after one year, and we see Fender Play as a solution to that challenge” said Ethan Kaplan, General Manager Fender Digital. “This intuitive platform, as a practice supplement to in-person lessons, allows first time players and beginners to get started. It allows them to learn when and how they want in a digital setting with superior production and accuracy far surpassing your average online lesson video. Courses in these paths focus on a song-based method, teaching foundational core techniques and riffs alongside lessons for recognizable hits from music’s most-esteemed artists and bands, such as U2, Shawn Mendes, the Rolling Stones, Foo Fighters, Meghan Trainor, Carrie Underwood and more. The program boasts a vast catalog of hundreds of songs arranged specifically for players at various skill levels. Please let me know how I can help
