I was a relative beginner to the guitar when I started lessons with Otis. From the first lesson he was patient, encouraging and enthusiastic. He tailors the lessons to the types of music and songs you are interested in. He has a wide range of music knowledge and styles which make him an ideal teacher who can help any student take that first step toward becoming a guitar player or help a seasoned player hone their skills. Highly recommended!

I've been taking guitar lessons from Nick Cooper for 7 months. Besides having a great time, I've learned a tremendous amount from Nick and improved my playing greatly. Whenever I'm having an issue, he's has been able to give me the right exercises and instruction to iron my problems out and keep me progressing. His lessons always keep in mind my personal preferences and objectives. I'm particularly excited about his plans for group workshops to involve all of his interested students. Being an older adult with a full-time job, I've been especially appreciative of his efforts to work within my schedule and time constraints. All in all, I look to be studying with Nick for a long time. Cliff Cahall

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!

Dave's Guitar Instruction

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.

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.

About

I have been playing guitar for over 30 years. I've taught off and on for the last 10 years. The method I use will be to pick songs that the student wants to learn, but throwing in some scales and modes as "homework" each lesson. You do your homework, and you will learn or be taught a segment of whichever piece you want to learn. If I feel it is beyond your abilities, I will tell you so, but I'll still teach you the song in small increments, eventually putting the song together . If a song is beyond my abilities, I will also tell you, as I am not Yngwie Malmsteen, however I will do my best to teach you whatever I can. My students must be committed to learning, prompt and dedicated to their lessons(for Jr High School and High School levels, a certain academic requirement is in place, my heart goes to those who believe in being a guitarist for a living as a sure thing, its not impossible, but highly improbable. I require a passing grade in all subjects from 7th grade to 12t, that will be in the contract you or your legal guardian will sign. In this day and age, living a real life, with real bills, and real responsibilities, making your living as a guitarist is possible, but not practical, and I won't have any of my guitar students ignoring their school studies to only playing guitar, and not paying any focus on the long term. Guitar playing is rewarding, its fun, it brings people together, builds hand eye coordination, its fun, chicks dig a guy who plays guitar, and vice versa, dudes love a gal that can play guitar, it builds self confidence, requires focus and determination, but nobody draws more attention or admiration than a guy or gal that can grab a guitar, and belt out a tune or two.

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.
