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
I have been taking guitar lessons from Pete for about 5 years now. The 5 years that I have been getting lessons have been a really good and I have learned so much about the guitar. Firstly, when I first started I was starting from scratch and had absolutely no idea on how to play. But now im able to play with pretty good speed and keep up with the fast songs. His teaching style I believe is very good and easy to understand, helping you excell in whatever you are doing. And it' not boring at all. Each lesson I have had, I have at least laughed a couple of times. So overall he is a great teacher who I would recommend to anyone if they were looking to learn the guitar or any other instrument he teaches.
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!
His teaching is excellent , everything is broken down to my understanding and he is a friendly person. Literally love playing the guitar, Kevin is very comical and I enjoy the guitar lessons!
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.
I have been taking Bass Guitar and Drum lessons from Steve for over a year. Steve exhibits the utmost in professionalism and take the time to make sure I've mastered the task at hand before we move on to the next lesson. I would highly recommend Steve to any aspiring musician. Joe B
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!
I took guitar lessons for three years with Lou at U Music and the quality of instruction was incredible. Lou clearly knows what he's talking about when it comes to understanding the guitar. He provides a holistic and fun approach to learning the instrument, backed up by many years of experience as a musician and teacher. I would recommend him as a teacher to anyone from the earliest beginners to the most veteran guitar players. I'm also pleased to say that every one of the instructors at U Music is friendly and easy to talk to. I took voice lessons with Ann (which were also fun and helpful), and I've had numerous chats about music and other things with both Greg the bass teacher and Nick the drum instructor. Great people, great instruction in my experience, and altogether a great place to learn about the wonderful world of music.
Luke Daniels is an absolute gentleman, a professional, serious teacher, extremely patient, brilliant, talented bass guitar instructor. He will definitely be my teacher for life. A+ Super positive experience. Thank you.
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.
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.
had a great time learning bass with James. We're gonna be good buddies, since he's a metal head like me. Really awesome teacher.
Great guitar player has a great feel for the instrument. Anyone would benefit from a guitar lesson with Josh Berger!!!
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.

I've been studying music my whole life. I have a master of music degree in jazz arts from Manhattan School of Music (2013), and a bachelor of music degree in jazz studies from William Paterson University (2010). However, I know more than just jazz music; I'm comfortable playing and teaching essentially all styles of music. I play hundreds of gig every year on both electric bass and double bass, spanning a wide variety of musical styles. I'm also very well versed in music theory, ear training, reading, and composing.

I have 35 years of playing in rock bands, on the guitar and the bass. I play classic rock and pop. My specialty is teaching students how to play in a band, what effects to use, how to read tabs as well as how to create the sounds to allow the student to stand out. Beginner, intermediate, and advanced students are welcome.
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.
