I would highly recommend Dave Robles for guitar lessons. He taught two of my daughters, from age 6 to age 12. He is both a professional educator and musician. He builds a rapport with the kids, and keeps them interested by letting them have input into the kind of music they're learning. He is reliable and organized, and provided a tabbed binder with sections for notes, theory and music. I recommended Dave to the after school enrichment program at our elementary school because he did such a good job teaching my girls, and I would highly recommend him for all ages.

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.

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 love learning from Joey. I have never played a guitar before and have no musical talent what so ever. :) He gave me great recommendations as to where to buy a guitar and was even willing to come down and help pick out a guitar that was suited best for me. In our lessons, Joey breaks the chords down for me so that I can understand them easily. He goes over things from the lesson before so that I get it down pat. He is extremely understanding, flexible and a fun guy to learn from. While we are still going through different chords, (I am on my 4th lesson), I look forward to learning how to play songs with him in the near future. I would definitely recommend him to any one who would like to learn how to play.

My daughter has been taking guitar lessons with Mike for the past eight years. The valuable lessons she has learned from Mike while learning to play guitar were applicable to playing violin for her school. Learning how to practice, reading and writing music, playing a song by ear, understanding difficult rhythms, and being exposed to a variety of genres are just a few examples of the valuable lessons she learned over the years. Mike also recorded her playing her grandfather's favorite song so she could give it to him as a gift. My daughter has learned to love music and we have Mike to thank for that. I have also had the pleasure of learning how to play guitar through Mike. We both feel our time with Mike is always well spent.

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!

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.

David Giardina is an outstanding teacher. He consistently teaches in the context of, not just a score or a composer, but the whole music world in which he is so highly regarded. His suggestions for polishing a piece are amazing. He is adept at identifying the dynamics, techniques or ornamentation that can bring a song to the next level. I have worked with David Giardina as a classical guitar student in both group and private study since September 2012. Besides fingerings, counting and interpreting music, topics have ranged from ways to warm up with a lighter touch, to practicing effectively, to ideas for listening and playing with other guitarists. He is also an excellent resource and coach for performance skills. DBC

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.

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.
