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!

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.

I have been taking guitar lessons from Pat for about four years now, and couldn't be more satisfied with the teaching that I received. Pat teaches in a fun and straightforward manner so that you are always engaged in the lesson and always learning with a guitar in hand. His lessons are built around learning songs that you want to learn, and accurately teaching them. He is the guitar teacher I would recommend for learning the instrument.

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.

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.

Steve is teaching my daughters to play guitar and piano, and they are absolutely loving it! He is an incredibly talented musician. His enthusiasm is contagious; and his patience is unending. My girls actually practice after their lessons and look forward to the next. I highly recommend Steve to anyone who is looking to learn to play guitar or piano.

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!!!


I started to love music at a very young age. I got involved in chorus and guitar, piano, acting, and singing.


I am looking to teach people how to get started up to some more advanced topic by making the material easy to understand .


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!


I provide in-home guitar lessons for the beginner guitarist. My lessons include tab explanation, songs transcription and explanation, strumming patterns, and fingerpicking. I hope to hear from you

I tailor my lessons to each individual students goals and stylistic preferences. We have fun learning many new songs, chords, progressions, simple and complex rhythms and even note reading if desired.

  • 28 years in business

My works stands out from others who teach guitar lessons because I not only know how to play, I also know how to teach.


If you want to learn guitar but can't be bothered with classical technique but still have a firm appreciation for the bits and bolts of the craft (music theory), this is for you. We will start with chords and songs immediately and then begin to integrate theory and scales. Beginners and advanced alike are welcome.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
