I started taking guitar lessons from Sandi Mascola when I was entering my freshman year of high school in 2004. I had zero musical experience beforehand but was interested, and she was one my best friend's aunts and I had heard great things. I fell in love with music, her teaching style, and the way I would leave each lesson learning something new. I ended up taking lessons for about 4 years, and I can honestly say Sandi taught me everything I knew about guitar, as well as life lessons along the way. I haven't taken a lesson since 2008, and still to this day refer to her as my aunt. She was an amazing mentor and role model and helped me grow as a guitar player and person. I don't have a bad word to say about her teaching style, and can truthfully say that it was the best money I've ever spent!
Joe makes guitar learning extremely fun! He is very understanding and lets you play what you love while giving you exercises to improve your techniques. He explains everything in a very clear and easy to understand way. Guitar lesson with him is my favorite class hour of the week! It is so enjoyable to take class with him.
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.
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 excellent teacher. He mixes just the right amount of theory into the lessons when it is appropriate to explain what we are working on. He is also very personable and easy to work with. I can honestly say it was a great find when I found Tommy.
They have a lot of experience teaching guitar lessons to people with all levels of musical ability. I really enjoyed working with them.
I started playing music at a late age and I honestly thought there's no hope for me. Alex changed that and helped me find my path in the guitar world and slowly but surely improve my skills. He is Well versed in theory and in all sorts of guitar techniques. Thank you 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!
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.
Very professional, knowledgable and patient. Great understanding of music theory and can teach anything you want to learn. Would recommend Chris to anyone.
Lynn has taught my daughter guitar for 9 years . She has always managed to keep her engaged and provide an exceptional learning experience . She tailors the lesson specifically to the students interests and abilities . She provides many opportunities for students to showcase their talents outside of lessons . We love working with Lynn
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.
I've been playing guitar for fifty years or so, but I always wanted to learn how to read music better, and play piano, like my father used to do. When I inherited my father's piano, I decided to take lessons with Roxanne Lee's Piano Studio. It's been rewarding and fun. As an adult/beginner piano student, Roxanne's lessons are helping me explore the piano keyboard in an enjoyable, easy-going, low-pressure way, using familiar songs and melodies to gain the skills needed to get a good grasp of this wonderful instrument. I heartily recommend Roxanne as a piano teacher, regardless of your age.
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
Adam is a phenomenal teacher . His attitude was great and I appreciate all the knowledge he can provide. He is fun and personable and I loved the aura and professionalism, definitely going to continue my guitar lessons. He is passionate about music which I consider extremely important. Looking forward to my next guitar lesson .
I purchased two guitar lessons for my son as a gift. Mrs. Lyons was very prompt, patient, and very knowledgeable. We would highly recommend her!
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.

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.

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.
