My son Shane wanted to take heavy metal guitar lessons, and my friend recommended Mike. I never wanted to pressure Shane to stay with lessons, but I didn't need to; not only did he learn songs from the rock bands he loved, but he ended up falling in love with jazz. Mike was always so friendly and knowledgeable, and it was nice to hear Shane playing heavy metal one day and jazz the next. Michelle B.
Jeffrey, Is a great Instructor. This is my second time trying to learn the guitar and in three lessons Jeffrey has gotten me to playing a song which I never got to with my previous instructor. Jeffrey has been teaching for a long term and seems to have this knack for making things very simple and easy to learn. If you looking to learn how to play an instrument Jeffery is the guy you want to see. Steve
Have been taking guitar lessons with Sollohub School of Music for 2 years and the instructors are top notch. Their level of knowledge about music and the guitar are excellent. I recommend Sollohub to anyone who wants to learn to play the guitar.
I had a very positive first experience with Mary. She is very nice and I can see that she is knowledgeable. I look forward to taking vocal lessons and organ lessons from her.
I have known Jeff since his early childhood, about the time he first picked up a guitar. He has always been intuitive, inventive and refreshing in his own creativity. I know he possesses a tremendous integrity in life and his passion for music. Investing in JR Guitar is not just music lessons but an opportunity to learn dedication from a true musician and inspiration from a wonderful human being. I endorse Jeff whole heartedly and recommend his course to all who desire the same. William L Ruhl- singer/song writer HOTC studio.
My son was hesitant to start his guitar lessons, and if he didn’t like it, it would be a major ordeal to get him in the car to go. I work like everyone and have zero time left. The fact that Tess comes to the house to teach - while I prepare dinner - is freaking awesome. What a time saver. And shes made it a great experience by offering tons of encouragement and lots of laughter wrapped up in a neat 30 min session. Highly recommend.
Ive taken guitar lessons with Gene for over 5 years. My guitar experience prior to meeting Gene was very limited. So limited that I didnt even own a guitar pic nor how to properly hold/use one. I never felt that I needed guitar lessons as I had taught myself many other hobbies in the past. Practice makes perfect was a motivational phrase I often told myself. It wasnt till a failed audition at my local church that I realized my practicing wasnt producing the results I had wanted/expected. I started working with Gene and immediately identified that a majority of my current abilities were based upon improper techniques. I didnt fully appreciate or understand proper technique as its affects were not always apparent in my playing. As my lessons progressed and technique improved, I realized that my motivational slogan wasnt complete. I now say; proper practice makes perfect. Working with Gene got me back on track with learning to play guitar. I have confidence when practicing knowing that the time Im investing is not being wasted on bad habits. A lot has changed since starting lessons with Gene. I re-auditioned at church and made the worship team! I regularly played lead guitar at my church and was content with my playing ability. I decided to stop lessons as I now had a solid foundation and figured that I could pick up anything I didnt know from online videos. This was one of biggest mistakes Ive made. Quickly after being on my own, I began to realize the lacking quality and musicianship in the countless tutorial videos found on YouTube. Its easy finding online song lesson, however, its very rare to find someone teaching it correctly or true to the album. I remembered working with Gene and not only learning the EXACT riffs and leads to a song, but also the artists style, tone and effects used. Over the years I became accustom to learning and sounding just like the artist I was trying to replicate. This quality of instruction I have only been able to find while working with Gene. I noticed that my interested in playing guitar faded after I ended lessons. I just didnt have the excitement to learn new songs or challenge myself to play better on the ones I did know. After a long sabbatical I decided to start back up lessons with Gene. Fast forward a few years; I now look forward to practicing nightly and regularly play with multiple churches within the Denver Metro area. I would not be where I am musically today without Genes guidance and inspiration. Hes a great mentor and continues to challenge me to be a better musician. Looking back, if I could change anything about my experience with Gene, it would be starting lessons with him sooner and never taken a break.
If you are seeking guitar lessons take this into account: You're going to learn the chords and strum patterns regardless of who teaches you. The trick is finding someone who is passionate about music and teaching it to others. Outstanding is not a word I sling around haphazardly, but Dave has earned it. Dave is very passionate about his music, is a very talented musician and he sincerely enjoys passing along his knowledge to others. If you chose Dave as your instructor, you will not be disappointed in any way. His price is a great value.
I’ve been taking guitar lessons with Nicholas Keith for a few weeks now. He is such a great instructor, very nice, and is very patient with newbies like me! I highly recommend him for anyone looking to take guitar lessons in the Denver area!
Really enjoyed my first lesson with Britt! I wanted to learn guitar to play songs for fun, and I’m less concerned about music theory, and she’s really great for that. She made our lesson fun and kept it engaging. Looking forward to learning more.
Great school! Had been learning guitar on my own for a while and got stuck in a rut so I decided to try out lessons. Russ has been a great teacher and I've learned a ton of new techniques that I never would have tried on my own. Very laid back and flexible. Would recommend to anyone.
Taking guitar lessons with Andrew has been an awesome experience for me. I started studying with Andrew a few months ago with the hopes of learning jazz guitar, a style that was completely new to me at the time. Since then I have improved exponentially in my playing and understanding of the necessary theory as well as my appreciation for jazz music. Andrew is a great, enthusiastic teacher and his lessons are always well structured and informative. Also, Andrew is just a hub of knowledge. I feel like I learn more from him in an hour than I do during weeks of practicing at home. If you're looking for a guitar teacher, I highly recommend him!
I have taken guitar lessons from three different teachers, and Tracy made it the most enjoyable. She has a very welcoming personality and is able to engage in her students' learning.
We love working with Moises! After just two weeks of tutoring, my daughter said "Now I understand the mistakes I have been making in math and I also understand how to do it right next time. I am starting to like math." Moises knows how to teach so that the information goes from short term memory to long term memory. We also have my son taking guitar lessons with Moises. He loves it so much he has requested lessons twice a week. We feel fortunate to have found someone who can work effectively with a student with ADD and that is an overall great teacher and kind person.
Our son has been taking classical guitar lessons from Rick Pruitt for almost four years now. One of the things we most appreciate about Rick is the positive way in which he relates to his students. In both group and individual lessons, Rick really engages with the kids to encourage them in their love of the instrument. During the year, he provides multiple opportunities to perform at coffee shop recitals which are a wonderful and inviting way to both develop and improve performance skills. We would highly recommend Rick as a guitar instructor.
We love Jeremy and Modern Music Studio! Our boys have been taking guitar lessons from Jeremy for two years, and he makes it fun. They love going, and Jeremy goes out of his way to get them excited about music and customize their lessons. Highly recommend.
Throughout my time taking lessons from Jason, I've learned not only how to play guitar in the sense of reading sheet music and tablature, but have also learned about the deeper aspects of guitar like how to choose a guitar that's best for you and how to properly care for that guitar. Subjects like music writing, improvising, scales, and even singing exercises are taught with ease and in a way that makes understanding them even easier. Overall, working with South Metro Guitar has proved to be a great experience and I would definitely recommend it for anyone who is serious about taking their guitar skills to the next level.
I offer instruction in guitar, ukulele and bass. I provide music recording and music production services. I also do original composition for TV, stage and film.
I offer guitar lessons. I am an experienced live musician and studio session player. I play bass, guitar, drums, mandolin and hammered dulcimer.
I feel that a student is best served by a thoughtful, observant, and flexible teacher who guides their natural curiosity about music. My students get personalized lesson plans that help support their interest while exposing them to new music and concepts.
My years of experience. My prior teaching experience as a music teacher in an elementary school. My education...graduate of the Guitar Institute. I know all styles of guitar, classical, electric, jazz, acoustic, and bass. I have impressive references. I travel to my students homes.I read music and can teach that and theory as well. I also write music and sing as well as perform.
