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.

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.

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.

I took guitar lessons from Joe Belmont for several years. Joe is insightful, super talented and cared about my progress as a student. I am now playing electric guitar on a gospel church, and using many of the techniques that Joe taught me. Thank you Joe Belmont!

Mike provided guitar lessons for my two daughters, ages 9 and 11, and I couldn't have been more satisfied. He was very knowledgeable, patient, and really made the music come to life for them. He came prepared with the music they wanted to learn and always would take extra time if they asked. I would wholeheartedly recommend Mike!

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.

My boys have been taking piano lessons from Lynne for almost 5 years now. Lynne is great with kids and is flexible in accommodating a lesson time that works with a family's busy schedule. Lynne is great at challenging kids to do more such as trying a song outside of their piano lesson book. We always enjoy the year end recital. Highly recommend Lynne!

Mrs. Barone is a great instructor.  Mrs. Barone teaches his students in a patient and understanding way and he provides and helps to build a strong foundation for his students.  Besides, Mrs. Barone has broad and deep knowledge in the classical guitar specifically and music in general.  I encourage you to enroll and take lessons with him because he will help you to achieve your goal in the future.

Christina and Howard have had a huge impact on my daughter's music development, I really can't believe how fortunate we've been to work with two such dedicated, experienced, and enthusiastic musicians. My daughter studied both piano and voice. In Voice, she had the opportunity to do live performances in formal venues, including duets, working with live classical accompaniment by Howard, in both the Pop Radio Hits and Broadway music that first attracted her to singing all the way to singing arias in Italian and French before she was 12! And she loved it! I loved it because Christina really brings out the best in each student in such an enthusiastic and encouraging way. And Howard worked with my daughter first as a piano student, from very young and very beginner, to playing sonatinas. I know that she carries this with her for a lifetime of enjoyment ,including the music theory that she learned, and the patient, professional, passionate and peaceful approach that she learned with has affected the way she approaches many things in her life. I feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to have worked with the Rovics' studio and had access to such talented teachers in my area.

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.

Verified review

When I struggled to get the technique right, he not only showed a lot of patience, but he tried various methods of explaining/demonstrating the lesson until I got it. After a little bit of practice, the piece that I struggled with through the first half of my lesson feels like second nature to play. I highly recommend Blackledge Guitar Institute for guitar lessons, no matter what level you're at.

Eli is the best guitar teacher I have ever come across. Outside of his one of a kind performance style he has a teaching style that has helped me TREMENDOUSLY by catering the lessons to EXACTLY where I am "at" on the instrument. His demeanor is warm, thoughtful, and engaging. I can't recommend him enough!!!

About

This is pretty much music as a second language. I teach reading music, music theory, the physical and aural aspects of guitar, ways around bad habits, righty and lefty, acoustic or electric. I have 42 years of playing and over 10 years of teaching.

About

We do unique and off-the-wall on-line guitar lessons that really work. We teach our students to learn guitar fast and easy for a fraction of the expense of conventional methods. Watch our lessons over and over until you get it right!

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.

About

If there is anything that you would like to learn on guitar or are just interested in a new hobby and have no idea where to start, I'm your guy.

    I really like bb king, Eric Clapton, Jason mraz and sublime. My goal is so be able to play some of their songs. Obviously bb king and Eric Clapton are 1000 times better than I will ever be, but playing simplified versions of their songs for my own enjoyment would be fun.
