I requested guitar lessons on thumbtack and I'm just learning for fun so I wanted someone who was going to make it a fun experience. I received so many texts instantly from all sorts of people with basically the same pricing. I read each one and as soon as I read Michaels reply I could tell he was perfect for the job, so I just double checked the specifics like time and day and then my friend told me about someone he knew that could do the lessons and I said "I just have a good vibe about this guy" and boy was I right! Michael is laid back, wants people to learn, is extremely encouraging and makes it an exciting and rewarding experience every time. He does whatever is needed to help me learn, and doesn't make learning guitar a chore. He literally gets more excited when I progress then j do ... this guy is the bomb.com!!!!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
I took lessons with Serena as a beginner in her group lessons through the City of Aurora and as a private student after that. I primarily studied jazz, but also checked out other styles. Serena helped me prepare for my college auditions, along with working in playing situations I was currently in, such as rock bands and pit orchestras. Her focus on sight reading has gotten me more work that I can recall, and the diversity of the material learned (especially classical guitar) gave me a great foundation to start from when studying guitar in college. Serena is nurturing to the beginning student, guiding to the intermediate guitarist, and maintains high expectations for the advanced student. Through hearing her other students at studio recitals, I can tell that she gives all students the same attention, regardless of their interests, age, or skill level. I am very thankful for the time I spent learning from Serena, and highly recommend her to anyone interested in developing on guitar.
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.
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’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!
Made very beginner lessons fun while also giving great technique instruction!
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.
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.
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!!!!
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.
Danny taught my son classical guitar for years with incredible results. Made it a pleasure for him to learn and play. For myself, he has provided the most incredible professional instruction on the subtleties of playing blues and rock guitar beyond my expectations. It's like having Jimmy Page and Stevie Ray showing you the way. Oh, he plays better them both as well. His classical guitar playing like his electric is mezmerizing.
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.
