I started seeing Mike a few months ago for private guitar lessons. Having received lessons from a few other people, I can say that make is the best instructor I've had. I felt that I had hit a brick wall in learning music theory before getting lessons from Mike. But over the past few months, Mike has explained guitar music theory to me in a clear, and informative way. I know have a better understanding of guitar playing, and enjoy it more because of that. I would highly recommend getting guitar lessons from Mike whether you are a beginner, or a more experienced player that needs some help learning music theory.

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.

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.

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.

Verified review

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.

I contacted Alan about guitar lessons for my dad for father's day - he was very prompt, polite & professional in his response. My dad is going to wait until the fall to start lessons, but I will definitely be contacting Alan again!

    Jeff's ability to play guitar is easily verified by putting his name in a Google or You Tube search. You can also see/hear for yourself by enjoying an evening with the best 70's Band in Colorado (MM8TR) or by catching one of his Classical Guitar recitals. The fact that Jeff is a renowned musician is undeniable but not that important if you want to learn guitar. What is important is his STRONG capability to teach and lead you down a learning path catered to your goals. I have had lessons from countless instructors and the problem I always found is they are great players but not so great at teaching. Jeff was able take the piece meal knowledge I had and fill in the blank spots while guiding me towards musical literacy. Ultimately we exceeded my goals and I started performing in front of large audiences on a regular basis. If you have the opportunity and privilege to become Jeff's student you will make progress! He can do it all (except your homework for you) and you will learn! Bryan B Highlands Ranch, Co.

      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.

        There are many good guitarists out there. There are many good teachers out there. It is a rare thing, however, to find a good teacher as well as a good guitarist all wrapped up into a neatly organized, always on time, affordably priced package. Chris, while being a masterful guitarist and skilled bandleader, juxtaposes this with a no quit attitude when it comes to what his students are capable of. I have been a student of Chris’s for over 8 years now, and I find that every lesson I learn something new. He is also capable of teaching much more than guitar if you ask him to. Unlike your stereotypical guitar teacher who views their teaching as a “day job” and their music as their passion, with Chris they are one and the same. In fact, when I was in 5th -8th grade, I organized a group of students to be in a band with me called “Demolition”. Not only did Chris embrace my creativity, he also encouraged it and helped us develop our own songs, rather than copy others. In fact, Chris does not teach guitar so that one can copy others’ music, but rather teaches you others’ music in the hope you will use it as inspiration for your own. Chris teaches things that cannot be quantified by normal metrics. He can teach you what 4/4 timing is, but he can also teach you how to “Jam Out!” and just have a good time. Because at the end of the day, if your not having fun, you won’t stick through the hard parts. Chris can, however, teach you a song- note-for-note if that is your style. When I attended Kent Denver high school, Chris taught me every single note of Santana’s leads in the song “Smooth”, which I later performed at the top Jazz club in Denver, “Dazzle”. Not only did Chris make that possible, but he also drove down from where he lives in Boulder, Colorado and stayed for every last second of the show. It was and is the highlight of my years with Chris. Teaching notes from a book is one thing, but teaching them from ear is another thing entirely. Chris has an amazingly accurate ear. He can tune a guitar better then my most expensive tuner. But most of all Chris recognizes that the student-teacher relationship is a two way street. He is constantly evolving his style as students introduce him to new material. It is that open minded and gentle teaching style that makes Chris the perfect guitar teacher especially for young people. Like Michelangelo said, “I am still learning,” and so is Chris.
