I have been going to Gary for 9 years. My girls have received lessons from him in piano, drums, bass guitar and vocals. Gary is an amazing and patient teacher, but more importantly, a wonderful person and friend! I highly recommend him to anyone of any age who has a passion for music. Gary is truly a talent!

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.

Verified review

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.

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!

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!

Verified review

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

Rob H.
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.

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.
