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 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!

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.

Aria and Arpeggios Music Academy is a wonderful, nurturing environment for music lessons. The teachers are excellent on all levels. It is a joy to see our children progress in piano with each lesson.

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!

I have allowed many people of differing ages to begin to play the guitar for themselves instead of feeling "the need" to practice. Music should be fun.

    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.

        About

        My name is Mason. I have played in bands since I was 12 years old. I was a self-taught guitarist, and I understand so much about the guitar that I promise results on the first lesson.

        About

        I've been playing for over ten years and teaching now for about three. I believe that everyone learns very differently, and i pride myself on getting to know my students well enough to figure out what works for them and what doesn't.
