I would highly recommend guitar lessons with Mike. I started lessons with no guitar experience, but a significant amount of piano experience. He is very patient, allowing me to set the pace and pick the music that is most appealing to me. He is also very encouraging, which makes me more comfortable with my progress.

Have been taking guitar lessons with Sollohub School of Music for 2 years and the instructors are top notch. Their level of knowledge about music and the guitar are excellent. I recommend Sollohub to anyone who wants to learn to play the guitar.

Murph is a fantastic teacher. I started taking bluegrass guitar lessons with him a year ago, after years of playing guitar very badly (only basic chords, strumming patterns, and Travis picking - all without a pick). In just a year, Murph has transformed me into a flatpicker. Under his direction, I've learned to crosspick, play scales and licks, learn solos by ear, and create interesting rhythm patterns both for traditional fiddle and newgrass tunes - all with a pick! Amazing. Plus, he's easy-going and very, very patient. I highly, highly recommend Murph as a guitar teacher!

Beth and Eugene Z.
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.

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.

Verified review

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.

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.
