Verified review

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.

I have had the honor of taking guitar lessons with Larry Meyer for about 3 years. Larry introduced me to the world of JAZZ and the concept of musical freedom through improvisation. Larry has truly inspired me to be a musician, and to think beyond my original guitar mind set. If you ask him a question, you will get an answer backed by a lifetime of musical exploration and experience, not to mention the serious undeniable pure talent. It is impossible to get a lesson from Larry and not be infected by his excitement of the music and the joy of revealing that infinite world to an aspiring player. I thank you Larry for your friendship and patience as you helped direct me through each musical stepping stone.

Over the coarse of 6 or so years Chris Schreiner has given me countless one on one bass lessons. Not only is he a personable guy, he always finds inventive ways to help a student succeed; Professionalism (on time, proper equipment, and real life experience), clear articulation (Terminology and Explanations), and positive attitude will not only encourage you but motivate you to do well. His versatility is also a plus. He has no problem catering to peoples musical needs no matter how far out it may be. All in all, great guy, great teacher!

Verified review

I found the search for classical guitar instruction rather daunting until I discovered the website of James Lorusso (jameslorusso.com). My initial contact from several other entities and individuals proved far too commercially driven for my taste. I was interested in taking formal lessons and learning how to read music not just learning from tablature or playing by ear which I had done for over fifty years. A few hours following my e-mail inquiry I was surprised and gratified to receive a personal call from Mr. Lorusso and was in his studio the very next day. I was immediately impressed with this gentleman. His warmth and finely honed pedagogic approach were so apparent it was only a matter of minutes into that introductory lesson I became convinced I had found the quintessential teacher a true pedagogue and a man of such talent and encyclopedic musical knowledge I was drawn to him like a magnet. Seldom in life does one come across a resource as substantial and charismatic as this gentleman look no further, you have just found a genius who's also as warm as the day is long! My name is Tom I'm 67 years of age and feel like a kid when I'm in Jims studio. In three months he has given me gifts of learning and brought me to places I thought were unachievable. He will do the same for you!

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.

I've been a guitar student of Howie's for the past two years. I have learned so much. Howie is an excellent teacher. He has you playing cool songs from the first or second lesson. Howie is a great guitarist, himself, and is able to demonstrate superb guitar-playing. He is also able to explain music theory in a way that is easy to understand. I would highly recommend Howie as a guitar instructor.

My wife and I hired James to play guitar for the processional and recessional of our wedding ceremony. We had very specific plans for the songs and arrangements we wanted to hear, and James was able to accommodate by learning and tweaking them in a very short amount of time. He communicated with us frequently throughout the process and sent us videos to make sure we were happy with the results. On the day of the wedding, he arrived on time and with the necessary equipment, and set things up with the coordinator/officiant so that we didn't have to worry about anything ourselves. And, of course, he played the songs exactly as we'd hoped, helping to make our ceremony a perfect and memorable one. James, I'm glad you found my listing here, and thanks for everything!

My daughter has been taking violin lessons with David since she was 9 years old; and more recently, she has started classical, acoustic guitar lessons the summer before entering college. He is a dedicated professional and diligent in making sure his students learn correct technique and become more musical in their own personal way. More importantly, David has the ability to keep his lessons fun and varied! Her lessons have always been highlights of my daughter's week! I recommend David without hesitation.

I have been taking drum lessons from Alex for about 6 months. Alex was among three instructors to contact me on Thumbtack and I consider myself fortunate to have chosen him as my teacher. I have been playing drums on and off for over 50 years but I am mostly self-taught. I am currently in a classic rock band and Alex is helping me take my playing up to the next level. His musical knowledge is vast and his teaching style is relaxed but competent. I would not hesitate to recommend Alex to anyone regardless of their level of ability.

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.

Brian has taught both my sons to play guitar. Brian's teaching style is very engaging! Brian teaches using songs and music that is customized to his students thereby motivating the students even more. In addition to Brian's excellent teaching skills, Brian is very professional and prompt. I would never hesitate to refer him to others who have an interest in learning to play an instrument.He is also an excellent musician in his own right. We have gone to a variety of venues to hear Brian play both solo and accompanied. Brian is a treasure in the world of music!

I worked with Lonnie for ten years, from when i began my studies in jazz piano at age 11 until I went to college at Berklee School of Music in Boston. We worked in all the different aspects of music, from jazz improvisation and interpretation, to how to play with ensembles, as well as orchestrating and arranging. I always admired Lonnie's willingness to work with me on what i wanted to work on. As a young musician my creativity was pretty boundless and it was hard to get me to learn music in a conventional way. Lonnie showed me how important it was to listen to music in order to learn. I received the right amount of motivation and guidance from my lessons with Lonnie to propel me into a life of musical work, as i currently make a living as a freelance composer in Los Angeles. I owe a lot to my teachings as a young musician and I heartily recommend Lonnie's services as a music instructor. I can be reached at 310 729 3866 or at dcharnis@gmail.com

Arthur is an excellent, very well-rounded, guitar instructor. He is very knowledgeable in quite a few aspects of guitar playing - from music theory, playing different styles, transcribing, to all the guitar gear and technology stuff. He has a nice studio, and is also very accuracy oriented, which I really like. I'm into learning to play the blues, rock and metal, and Arthur has been really helpful with that. Highly recommended!
