I have been learning bass with the Dom for over a month now. I am a complete beginner but already making good progress. He has a great knowledge of the bass guitar. As Dom is a accomplished Jazz guitar player I find it great to be able to learn songs and then play along with guitar aswell as learning music theory and sight reading. Dom is great teacher with years of experience who understands how to pace the lesson. He always give you enough to practice without overloading and follows up with emails and musical reference of things discussed in the lesson. If you are thinking of taking lessons either on Bass or Guitar, accomplished or beginner, I would highly recommend Dom Paul

As an adult who never had piano lessons and doesn't play any instruments (so far) I think Broderson Music Studios provides excellent instruction. I am still early in the process, but have found Gary to be very encouraging and patient. He is able to answer questions in a way that is clear and understandable without ever feeling "dumbed down". I look forward to learning more!

Barbara is an excellent music instructor. I have had 3 sessions so far and feel like I have learned so much from her. I can't wait to see how much more I will improve in the next 3 sessions. I'm glad I signed up for singing lessons at the Alexander Music Studio!

I have gone to pat for 7 years and he has taught me countless songs, riffs, scales, techniques, and chords and even taught me the bass guitar. He never makes you do anything you don't want so you can learn whatever you want to learn. He's a great guy and I look forward to going to his lessons every week.

Verified review

I have had the honor of taking guitar lessons with Larry Meyer for about 3 years. Larry introduced me to the world of JAZZ and the concept of musical freedom through improvisation. Larry has truly inspired me to be a musician, and to think beyond my original guitar mind set. If you ask him a question, you will get an answer backed by a lifetime of musical exploration and experience, not to mention the serious undeniable pure talent. It is impossible to get a lesson from Larry and not be infected by his excitement of the music and the joy of revealing that infinite world to an aspiring player. I thank you Larry for your friendship and patience as you helped direct me through each musical stepping stone.

Tommy has been an amazing guitar, bass, and audio engineering teacher. Recently, we've been working together on some college auditions involving jazz bass, which I knew little of in terms of techniques and terminology. With Tommy's help, I've learned what would have taken me forever, and I feel a lot better about the audition process.

Great guitar teacher - my 16 year old son likes him and is enjoying learning to play the guitar (two big wins!). Focuses on getting the child 'making music' right from the start so that they start having fun right away and stay thus engaged and interested. Really flexible with scheduling lessons for those of us who are 'calendar-challenged'. I'd highly recommend Joey to others.

My daughter has been taking guitar lessons with Mike for the past eight years. The valuable lessons she has learned from Mike while learning to play guitar were applicable to playing violin for her school. Learning how to practice, reading and writing music, playing a song by ear, understanding difficult rhythms, and being exposed to a variety of genres are just a few examples of the valuable lessons she learned over the years. Mike also recorded her playing her grandfather's favorite song so she could give it to him as a gift. My daughter has learned to love music and we have Mike to thank for that. I have also had the pleasure of learning how to play guitar through Mike. We both feel our time with Mike is always well spent.

    Jaf has been giving my boys guitar lessons for 2+ years. He is very patient and talented. Both boys have developed a love for music and playing, and enjoy their sessions with Jaf. My husband and I are pleasantly surprised at their improved ability under Jaf's excellent tutelage, and their eagerness to continue with lessons. Jaf is also understanding and flexible, when life gets in the way of a scheduled lesson.

    My daughter has been taking violin lessons with David since she was 9 years old; and more recently, she has started classical, acoustic guitar lessons the summer before entering college. He is a dedicated professional and diligent in making sure his students learn correct technique and become more musical in their own personal way. More importantly, David has the ability to keep his lessons fun and varied! Her lessons have always been highlights of my daughter's week! I recommend David without hesitation.

    Going into my first lesson with Alex, I was excited, but pretty nervous. I've played other instruments in the past, so came into it with some musical background, but had never touched a bass. Part of the uprights appeal to me is knowing how hard it is to master. However knowing myself and having taken lessons on other instruments in the past, I know those first couple lessons on any instrument (let alone a particularly difficult one) can be frustrating. Alex was super patient with me, and made me feel really comfortable. He was very encouraging, and made me feel good about what I was learning. On the other hand, Alex was just tough enough that it pushed me to keep trying until I got it right. I left knowing a couple scales (pretty cool), and with blisters on my fingers. I'd say my first lesson was a win, and I'm looking forward to the next.
