I have gotten a series of guitar lessons from Stevie. The progress I've made is amazing. If you're looking for a relaxed atmosphere to ask questions and learn to play guitar, Matthews is your guy. He is passionate about music and your ability to get better. I'm very excited to continue to learn more.

Very professional, Andrew Pendergast is awesome. My daughter has had 3 voice lessons and now we are incorporating guitar with the lesson. I highly recommend Lessons In Your Home.

if you take bass lessons from Dave, you won't be disappointed. Whatever style of bass you like, he's been there and done it, and he can take you there too.

Brett was extremely flexible in being able to provide us a timeframe for piano lessons for our daughter, responded back quickly to emailed questions, and my daughter adored her piano tutor. We're really excited to get her started in weekly lessons.

Carey’s talent as a teacher does wonders for bridging the gap between music theory and music performance. I went into lessons with only a very basic knowledge of music theory that I hardly was able to apply to guitar, but his lessons taught me how to play in a way where I can either explore the musical depth of the tune or simply jam, comfortable that what I’m playing will always sound good. It’s broadened my abilities as a musician without taking away the simple fun of playing guitar, something that is invaluable in any teacher.

I was looking for guitar lessons for my son as a Christmas present. I wasn't sure how long the excitement would last. Mike has been fabulous in working with my son and stoking the fire of interest. My son looks forward to his lessons every week and gets real excited about the progress he's made. I can't speak highly enough about how Mike has helped and encouraged my son.

I've been working with Maurice for just a couple months now. He has taught me more guitar in less than 3 months than I've picked up in over 30 years of trying to pick it up by myself. He is not only a great guitarist, he is also a great teacher.

Max Kuzmyak is a very knowledgeable musician with a large skill set that is useful in the music industry. He can teach trumpet, guitar, voice, and has extensive theory knowledge as well. He is also well versed in recording and audio engineering. Max is very friendly, easy to work with, and professional. I would highly recommend working with him if you are looking for a private teacher, or a recorder.

Andrew has been my 9 year old son's guitar teacher for a year and a half now. Andrew's approach is very kid-friendly. In our case, my son picks the songs he wants to learn, and if Andrew doesn't know them, he will look up the song on the iPad and learn it along with him. I appreciate that he is not only teaching skills, but also modeling how to learn new things. My son has picked up on this, and works on new songs on his own now by looking them up in his chord songbook, finding online tutorials or figuring it out by ear. Along the way, Andrew weaves in the basics like scales and theory. My son says about Andrew: "He is really nice and keeps things at your skill level. If he thinks you're getting really good at one subject, he'll add something more challenging." My son's guitar playing has improved dramatically since he began taking lessons with Andrew, and he has a deeper appreciation for all kinds of music as a result.

I've been taking lessons here for a year or two I think. They have been great and I plan on continuing to do so. Nothing like learning to play guitar while playing a song you chose.

    Anthony has been providing beginner lessons for my daughter and me for almost a year now. He has an extensive knowledge of music and has used that to tailor individual lesson plans for each of us, allowing us to learn via music we're comfortable with. This keeps us motivated and focused on picking up the chords that our favorite artists use. He's also very patient about the limited amount of time that I can devote to practice, while still coaching me into showing marked improvement- no small feat. Great instructor and I recommend him highly.

    I was already an intermediate guitarist when I began lessons with Marcus Truelove. He has a reputation among area guitarists as professional and very knowledgeable. He exceeded my expectations in every way. I was at a learning plateau and quite frankly, all over the place on the fretboard when I began lessons. Over the course of two years, he was able to smooth out my technique and improved my timing immensely. I especially like that he was able to teach to any level of ability and covered a lot of material in every lesson. His level of understanding made playing a lot easier for me and the results were almost immediate. He uses an easy to understand building block approach to teaching. He will give you honest feedback on your progress/ability and set reasonable expectations for your next lesson. His lessons are an excellent value and I reserve for him my highest recommendation.

    I set-up one appointment w/ Oscar to see if it was possible to learn guitar: I find manipulating my hand and fingers awkward. He promptly assisted me w/ finding a proper sitting position, guitar holding technique and where to place my fingers. His demeanor is that of calm patience. I signed-up for four more lessons!
