Our daughter who attends Denver School of the Arts has been taking weekly classical guitar lessons from Michael for about a year. Michael has been a great fit for her. He is highly educated skilled technically,and has an approach that makes a tween girl not dread her lessons. Her position, music reading and technique have improved quite a bit over the year. Michael is professional, nice and has a good sense of humor to boot. We had tried lessons with 2 other instructors and he is overall much better than the other teachers.
Deciding to take guitar lessons at 60 was a little nervous but Jeff and his instructors were great to work with and are familiar with all types of music. I highly recomend their method of teaching.
I recently turned 50 and I've always wanted to learn to play guitar, but didn't know where to start or that I could even grasp playing at my age. I lucked out and found Jeff here on thumbtack. I've been under Jeff's tutelage for three months now and I've already learned cords, songs, strum patterns and much more. It is exciting to finally be playing and Jeff has been fantastic part of this experience! Jeff is a great instructor, he is vastly knowledgeable, patient and takes time with you to get you to your goal! Jeff is also a consummate pianist and I will be taking piano lessons with him! Looking for a guitar and piano instructor, definitely give Jeff a try!
Mary has done a great job with teaching me how to play guitar! I'm a beginner and she has taught me all of the basics and music theory. She's also provided books for me to take home and practice, which has been extremely helpful. Definitely recommend Mary for anyone wanting to learn guitar from a more technical side.
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.
Kevin is talented, knowledgeable and patient. He started almost a year ago giving guitar lessons to my two kids (11 & 13) and I. I am so proud to see my kids progress and be able to play songs. Kevin does a great job and I highly recommend him.
I've been taking acoustic guitar lessons from Doug Wilmarth for a year now and have thoroughly enjoyed and learned from the experience. Doug teaches electric guitar as well. He is professional, incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, accommodating and experienced. I recommend him highly! Great guy; great teacher!
I'm so pleased to be taking guitar lessons from Dave. I'm a (middle-aged!) beginner and he is very patient with me. He ensures I work on the fundamentals but always gives me something fun to tackle, too. I highly recommend Dave.
Serena is an amazing teacher. I started off with barely any knowledge about how to play my acoustic guitar, and after only six weeks, I can now learn songs on my own and know most of the basic skills for playing. She is extremely patient and willing to help in any way. Her method for teaching makes tough concepts very clear and understandable. She is dedicated to helping her students learn how to read music and get what they want out of playing the guitar. I am so glad I got to have Serena as my teacher, and can't wait to go back to her soon to learn more!!
This middle aged guy decided to pick up something new with bass guitar, and I'm so happy to have lessons with Amber. She is very easy to work with, provided wonderful tools, and the lessons with her have been very good, and very very fun. Great instructor to sit down and even work the basics, and as a beginner making the basic repetitions of skills is very important.
My 9 year old son is taking beginning (quickly becoming advanced beginner) guitar lessons from Dwayne. My son likes Dwayne because "he is descriptive when teaching something, he's nice and talks to you". Dwayne is a genuinely nice and caring person with incredible talent that he readily translates into teaching.
Lyles guitar lessons show you how to see the guitar as a greater picture within music, improving your phrases and leads with a thoughtful outlook on musical theory. Whether you want to play rock, blues, metal, or jazz, this guy has great guitar chops and wants to help you get better with yours.
While looking for guitar lessons on the internet for my 12 year old daughter, I found Dr. Hot Licks School of Rock and Metal. This would be her first experience playing the guitar and after the first lesson she already knew this is where she wanted to go. John Taylor is very patient with her, and extremely helpful by using the ideal one-on-one setting. She always looks foward to her next lesson. I would highly recommend this school for anyone who wants to learn guitar (any age beginners thru advance).Love this school!!!!
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!
Great guitar instructor. Beginners and advanced alike. Eric has taught my daughter for the past five years. She has enjoyed learning both the electric and acoustic guitar. His quiet demeanor and easy to approach personality has made it easy for her to ask questions and not feel intimidated as she has tried more difficult material. He has helped to give her the gift of music!
I have taken both classical and blues guitar lessons from Rick for many moons. I like his style ... challenging but also laid back! If you are just starting to play, he is great with beginners! If you are looking to sharpen your existing skills, he's your man as well! You won't be disappointed!
I took guitar lessons with Danny from 2007-2012. He's an incredible teacher that strikes a balance between helping students pursue their passion and pushing them to discover new passions, ideas, and styles. After studying with Danny I went on to pursue a bachelor's of music in classical guitar performance and plan to continue on that career path. Overall a very important, formative experience from a caring teacher.
I have been working with Alan for over two years now learning the acoustic guitar, classical guitar, and now the bass guitar. Alan is a fantastic guitar teacher in that he is supportive, patient, and very kind. Alan is very committed to his students by catering his lessons to the needs, skill level, and music genres they are interested in. I first met Alan while my oldest daughter was learning to play the acoustic guitar. She absolutely enjoyed working with him and even though she has moved on to clarinet, she still gets excited to see him when she is able to attend lessons with me. Alan is a great guy and I highly recommend him to anyone who is wanting to learn guitar!
My daughter has been taking lessons at Littleton School of Music for almost three years, mainly piano, but some guitar and some voice, and she has become a pretty good player. More than that, she loves music and playing and singing, and that will last her a lifetime. I love that her lessons are tailored to her musical interests and goals, and can be adjusted as those shift. A few months ago I started taking guitar lessons there myself, and I'm so happy I did. My lesson is one of the highlights of my week. The staff at the school are engaging and professional and enthusiastic. The school offers opportunities to perform for students who are so inclined. The summer band camp is an amazing experience. I just can't say enough great things about this wonderful place, and the people who work there!
I hired Matt for 1 hour beginner guitar lessons. He was very patient with me as I was new to guitar. I continue to take lessons from Matt every week and have seen a lot of improvement. Matt really shows his passion for music through his teaching. I highly recommend him as a teacher.
ABC Music Academy is the place to send students of any age who aspire to become quality musicians. Lori's musical experience and abilities are top notch on any of the instruments she teaches. She enjoys teaching younger students and makes their lessons creative and encouraging. She communicates well with parents and plans performing opportunities for even the youngest beginner while including students who are more skilled. She also plans events for the Christmas season and other community opportunities. She is simply the best, and I would highly recommend her.
