I am writing to recommend Neil Zimmerman for guitar lessons. I have found Neil to be very committed in helping me become a better guitar player. Neil always brings an upbeat, caring and patient attitude to each lesson. In the few short months I have been working with Neil, my knowledge of alternate fingering of chords and picking techniques have increased tremendously. Neil really takes the time to assess your current guitar playing skills and then uses that information to customize his teaching approach to each artist (student). No matter what your skill level is, Neil can quickly assess your ability and get you on a path of improvement. Neil is also very flexible and accommodating when it comes to scheduling lesson times (yet another plus). I highly recommend Neil for guitar lessons. Whether you are a seasoned, accomplished player or a beginner, Neil is your man! - Clint HannAug 13, 2015
Guitar Lessons (for children or teenagers)
Neil is great. He relates well to my daughter, teaches her skills she can immediately apply to what she is working on. He is technically on point, in tune with music she likes and able to explain things in a fun, understandable manner. I would highly recommend him to anyone of any age wanting to improve their guitar playing ability.Sep 3, 2015Verified
Guitar Lessons (for adults)
When I first reached out to Neil on Thumbtack, I told him exactly what I was looking to learn. After just four lessons I have found that he not only understands the approach I need to take, but is super patient and helpful at teaching me what I want to learn. He is very accommodating and I have been really pleased with my quick results. I highly recommend Neil for beginner and intermediate guitarists like myself who want a customized, tailored approach.Nov 13, 2015Verified
Neil has been a great teacher to me over the last few months. As a self taught musician I struggled with lead guitar playing, Neil has made it easy to understand what I've had trouble with, and has an amazing way of working with my playing style rather then forcing me to adjust to normal playing stiles as other teachers have done to me in the past. he works with me to play the lead the way that feels more natural for me. Neil is an excellent, and patient teacher. I highly recommend him to any beginners or even self taught musicians that want to expand the playing abilities.Aug 12, 2015

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?If you're smart as a musician, you NEVER stop learning. There's always a new artist, or song, or sound, coming along. I keep up with a lot in the music industry. I'm always trying to find out how that guitarist, or that producer, got THAT SOUND. And then make that sound myself!
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?You've got to be on the same "wavelength" with your instructor. The two of you need to feel comfortable together. It's a team effort, so if it feels like you could have your instructor on the same team as you, whether it's a sports team, or business, or whatever, then it will likely be a good fit.
