I took piano lessons as a teenager about 60 years ago. Over the years, my keyboard abilities have diminished significantly. Gary came up with a plan that will change my playing style and enable me to enjoy playing again. Gary is very easy to work with. The first lesson energized me and I look forward to working with Gary.

Thoroughly enjoying my lessons with Tom! Sometimes, they are free-flow; sometimes, they are focused. He has a good idea of how much to give me to work on each week, and the structure of the lessons works well.

Barb's Continuo Home Music Lessons provided home lessons to my son. Not only was the instructor very talented, but they knew exactly how to interact with a young person to keep his interest throughout the lesson and encouraged practicing beyond the lesson. Barb is always prompt and goes out of her way to accomodate scheduling issues.

Alex has taught my son classical guitar for the past 7 years. With Alex's expert instruction, his remarkable ability to maintain and channel enthusiasm, and his gentle prodding, my son has gone from the very basics to advanced concert repertoire, and has had a great time doing so. Bravo, Alex!

My 13 year-old daughter has been taking Songwriting and Lyrics Immersion with Zoe for a year, and has loved every minute of it. She has also learned a lot from Zoe, and it shows in the songs she writes. She has been writing songs in one form or another for the past 7 years, but in the last year the wording has improved dramatically, and she is also putting music to them. I’m very impressed that Zoe was able to get her to write a happy song, unlike her usual sad heart wrenching ones. I will add that my daughter has also been taking private lessons (guitar and voice) with Zoe since she focuses on pop music singing rather than the usual theater or opera styles I was able to find, and I have noticed a great improvement in her skills this past year. Thanks Zoe!

Bob is an excellent teacher! I have been taking bass guitar lessons with him for the past 4 months. As an adult just beginning to learn the bass, I am very happy that Bob tailors the lessons for me and my interests. From the beginning, we played songs from musicians that I enjoy (Black Sabbath, The Kinks, The White Stripes) and not the simplistic Mary Had a Little Lamb stuff you find in most beginning guitar books. Bob also incorporates music theory into our lessons in a fun and interesting way. For example, we'll be working on a Black Sabbath riff and he'll use it to demonstrate the pentatonic scale. Bob is kind, friendly, and professional. Our lessons start on time and he uses every minute of the lesson to its max. I am always excited to go to each lesson. I would highly recommend Bob to anyone looking to learn the guitar or bass guitar!

Over the coarse of 6 or so years Chris Schreiner has given me countless one on one bass lessons. Not only is he a personable guy, he always finds inventive ways to help a student succeed; Professionalism (on time, proper equipment, and real life experience), clear articulation (Terminology and Explanations), and positive attitude will not only encourage you but motivate you to do well. His versatility is also a plus. He has no problem catering to peoples musical needs no matter how far out it may be. All in all, great guy, great teacher!

Rob is an excellent instructor and takes a personal interest in honing both your technical skills and your understanding and appreciation of what transforms a sequence of notes and chords into music. In addition to lessons, Rob is extremely generous with his time and goes out of his way to organize jams that allow students to learn to play in a band setting.

Dave's Guitar Instruction

Verified review

Dave has been my guitar instructor for the past 8 years, since I first began playing at age 60. He has a most effective teaching technique which allows skill building while permitting musical interest and direction to evolve. He is strongly suited to instruction in many genres including Classical/Flamenco, Jazz, Folk and Acoustic Rock.I have seen him work well with quite young students and those considerably older than my age of 68. Quite honestly, it is nearly impossible to request a song that Dave cannot play, transcribe, and find a key in which to play the song comfortably. He writes the charts for his latin jazz band, so my occasional forays into the world of music theory have also been well supported by Dave.

Guitar Hangar is a full-service music store, with a wide selection of instruments from beginner to high-end instruments at competitive prices. More importantly, they focus on service after the sale -- including repairs, maintenance, accessories and perhaps most importantly for new and intermediate musicians, lessons. Rick has been my go-to guy for more than 10 years, and I give him and Guitar Hangar my highest recommendation.

I hired Preston for guitar lessons this summer and met with him for three lessons before having to go back to school. Preston is a real chill guy, with an incredible beard and even greater passion for music. He'll listen to your questions patiently (I had thousands) and enthusiastically give incredibly thorough answers that, although sometimes may circle around to a few different topics, always come back around with really interesting insight to boot. Although he's a talented guitarist, probably the best things about Preston are his personality and availability. He and I texted about problems I was having with learning a song or scale, and he would (and still does, actually) email me with exercise suggestions. Great guitarist, better guy. Definitely check him out no matter what you're interested in learning on guitar!

Angelo is an amazing teacher. I have been taking lessons from him for years and he is still teaching me new things every week. I would recommend him for any age range as he personalizes his teachings with every student. I get customized assignments every week to practice my skills and Angelo is always there to help.

About

I have 50 years' experience in playing guitar. If you like what you hear on the website, I can help you learn to do it. I will help you learn to play the guitar, not play things on the guitar. I present a set of tools to allow to make the music you want. I am not a good teacher for someone interested in contemporary pop music or a complete beginner. I do not give weekly lessons. The intervals depend on the student. I can give enough in an hour to keep someone busy for many weeks. My fee is $50 per hour.

About

I have always believed that the pursuit of any discipline in the arts stimulates the imagination, fine tunes motor skills, and is generally good for the soul. Learning a musical instrument can be a wonderfully rewarding experience, regardless of the style of music you pursue. I have been playing guitar for 41 years since I was a lad of 10, and I have been teaching for the last 31 years, offering private lessons at a very affordable price. Now, at age 51, I still genuinely love my craft and enjoy interacting with students of all ages and levels! Lessons are given in the comfort of my home studio. You will learn to read music notation, guitar notation, and tablature. I shall teach you the benefits of music theory, improvisation, and good technique. As you progress, I will help you with learning to master the songs that you want to play.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
