Verified review

My son started piano lessons at 5 years old, and then at 7 years he started taking lessons from Gary. The past two years of lessons with Gary have been incredible. Gary does an excellent job of teaching him proper piano techniques and skills such as timing, body position, rhythm but make it fun. My son had already developed some “bad habits” or not learned them correctly the first two years of lessons. Gary worked diligently to make sure those were corrected and he had a good foundation and has improved exponentially these past two years. Gary incorporates songs my son is familiar with into his lessons as well as technique practice. With his improvement over the past two years, he has also developed a love for playing and frequently asks if he can practice rather than me having to constantly remind him to practice. I highly recommend Gary as a piano instructor and we hope to have several years of him teaching our children.

About

There are a lot of great musicians whom have perfected the art of music, but Michael is one who has perfected the art of teaching. I have been taking lessons from Michael for about 6 years, so all bias aside, I can tell you he is the man with, not only the talent of a fantastic player, but the knowledge, patients, and commitment to get you playing at your absolute best. No matter how my musical interests and playing skill have evolved over the years, he can always meet my needs and challenge me to be the best player I can; which is why I've stuck around. I would very much recommend taking music lessons from Michael, no matter your skill level, age, or musical interest.

About

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!

Dustin has been teaching my son for 4 years now and is an excellent instructor. He has taught Devin starting at the basics to classical, blues, rock, and also music theory and writing his own music. Dustin has been flexible in adapting his instruction with my son's needs and wants to keep him interested and continually learning more. Dustin is also very professional and reliable as an instructor and I would strongly recommend him for anyone looking for a guitar instructor. Dustin has incredible talent himself and sets the bar high for his students.

About

What luck to have found Matt's ad on a community bulletin board! I held on to it for a year before calling; so glad I did. Matt has an infectious passion for the guitar and all kinds of music. It's obvious he loves teaching as much as music itself. As an instructor, he is thorough, patient, knowledgeable, and methodical but never pedantic. He helped me learn to play the whole fretboard, new chords, fingerpicking, strumming patterns, theory, technique, new songs. He is a pleasure to work with! He is always encouraging and always willing to teach what I wanted to learn. It's rare to find someone both as talented and sincerely modest as Matt.

About

I teach, perform and create music for a living! I focus on quality guitar instruction through only teaching a handful of students and diving deep into areas of needed growth when instructing. My lessons can be either intense with technique training or casual and friendly, depending on the student's preference. I have played the guitar for 14 years (taught guitar for six years) and have sung for six years (taught vocals for two years). I concurrently work at Philomusica's European Music School teaching private guitar lessons.
