Our daughter who attends Denver School of the Arts has been taking weekly classical guitar lessons from Michael for about a year. Michael has been a great fit for her. He is highly educated skilled technically,and has an approach that makes a tween girl not dread her lessons. Her position, music reading and technique have improved quite a bit over the year. Michael is professional, nice and has a good sense of humor to boot. We had tried lessons with 2 other instructors and he is overall much better than the other teachers.

Jeffrey, Is a great Instructor. This is my second time trying to learn the guitar and in three lessons Jeffrey has gotten me to playing a song which I never got to with my previous instructor. Jeffrey has been teaching for a long term and seems to have this knack for making things very simple and easy to learn. If you looking to learn how to play an instrument Jeffery is the guy you want to see. Steve

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.

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.

My son was hesitant to start his guitar lessons, and if he didn’t like it, it would be a major ordeal to get him in the car to go. I work like everyone and have zero time left. The fact that Tess comes to the house to teach - while I prepare dinner - is freaking awesome. What a time saver. And shes made it a great experience by offering tons of encouragement and lots of laughter wrapped up in a neat 30 min session. Highly recommend.

I have been taking lessons from Jerimiah since August 2016. He has a wonderfully welcoming and positive attitude, which makes his studio a stress-free environment to improve your playing and challenge yourself. He is very accommodating of students' busy schedules, and is always responsive to text and email. He is very attentive to individual students' goals, and is proficient in a diverse repertoire from musical theater to jazz to classical, both for piano and vocals. He puts on seasonal recitals for his students, which is helpful for student goal-setting and performance confidence. I would recommend Jerimiah to vocal and piano students of any age or skill level. -Dan N.

I’ve taken guitar lessons with Gene for over 5 years. My guitar experience prior to meeting Gene was very limited. So limited that I didn’t 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 wasn’t till a failed audition at my local church that I realized my practicing wasn’t 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 didn’t 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 wasn’t 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 I’m 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 didn’t know from online videos. This was one of biggest mistakes I’ve made. Quickly after being on my own, I began to realize the lacking quality and musicianship in the countless “tutorial” videos found on YouTube. It’s easy finding online song lesson, however, it’s 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 artist’s 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 didn’t 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 Gene’s guidance and inspiration. He’s 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 have been taking guitar lessons from Calvin at the Denver Music Institute. As an adult learner, I really appreciate his pacing and passion. His flexibility in dealing with an adult student who has a full-time job and kids has been exceptional. I would recommend him to anyone.

I saw David Brooks play at little bears and was amazed at how great he played. If only I had more free time to go hear him play. He is so comical and such a great singer as well as guitar player.. If he would teach guitar, I'd be the first person to sign up and learn.

If you are seeking guitar lessons take this into account: You're going to learn the chords and strum patterns regardless of who teaches you. The trick is finding someone who is passionate about music and teaching it to others. Outstanding is not a word I sling around haphazardly, but Dave has earned it. Dave is very passionate about his music, is a very talented musician and he sincerely enjoys passing along his knowledge to others. If you chose Dave as your instructor, you will not be disappointed in any way. His price is a great value.

We are very happy with the piano lessons Genevieve provides to our 9 year old son and our 7 year old daughter. They enjoy learning from her and they're given lots of choices for what they want to play. She's also very flexible with rearranging lesson times if we have to miss. The recitals and sectionals have been fun and helpful too, and we are looking forward to the summer camp if it works with our schedule. :)

Great school! Had been learning guitar on my own for a while and got stuck in a rut so I decided to try out lessons. Russ has been a great teacher and I've learned a ton of new techniques that I never would have tried on my own. Very laid back and flexible. Would recommend to anyone.

My 2 teenage sons took guitar lessons from Ronnie for 1 year. He did an awesome job! We were referred to him by a friend who has been taking lessons from him for years. Ronnie was a much better teacher than their previous teacher and for the same price. We were very pleased with Ronnie! My sons both said that they liked Ronnie as a guitar teacher, and that, "he really knew his stuff!" Ronnie chose good/fun songs for them to play and he challenged them to be better guitar players. As a parent I found Ronnie to be very personable, professional and educated. He is a true musician! Thank you Ronnie for all that you taught my sons!

Throughout my time taking lessons from Jason, I've learned not only how to play guitar in the sense of reading sheet music and tablature, but have also learned about the deeper aspects of guitar like how to choose a guitar that's best for you and how to properly care for that guitar. Subjects like music writing, improvising, scales, and even singing exercises are taught with ease and in a way that makes understanding them even easier. Overall, working with South Metro Guitar has proved to be a great experience and I would definitely recommend it for anyone who is serious about taking their guitar skills to the next level.
