I had one lesson with Louis for two hours. In those two hours he was not only able to analyze my form and find my inefficiencies, but also was able to instill in me both the knowledge and skills to step up my bass playing from beginner to intermediate almost over night. He has a firm grasp of the Bass and is also a phenomenal Bassist.

John is extremely knowledgable about music theory. From my first lesson I walked away better off. And I think I will continue to grow in my guitar skills and music knowledge.

Really happy with my experience with Richards Guitar Studio. Nate was very accommodating, answering my questions and setting me up with right instructor. My instructor Eric is very easy to work with. Their Guitar Mastery program is a great way to learn and something that I don't think you can find anywhere else.

This lesson was awesome! The instructor Mike was very friendly & professional. He taught at a comfortable pace. He watched as I played & gave feedback. He makes learning the guitar fun. I left knowing how to play a VERY popular song☺ I can't wait to do some of my homework & get to the next lesson. I highly recommend Mike for any beginners like myself!

While I live in the Washington, D.C. area and normally take weekly guitar lessons there, when I'm in the Bucks County area I always try to schedule a guitar lesson with Lee. He is an accomplished musician and a terrific teacher. He is focused on the music and attentive to subtle details. He often offers practical, and sometimes unique, ideas for working on skills and techniques that need improvement. I always feel that my lessons with Lee are very productive!!!

My teenage son has been enjoying Danton's classical guitar teaching for the past two years. In this time, he has greatly matured in his playing skills and understanding of music theory. Danton challenges his students in creative and fun ways, making lessons a pleasure. He includes the student in selecting music, being sure to advance the student's skill level without overwhelm the student. He is professional, engaging, and friendly. Additionally, his ability to come to my home for lessons saves me time each week. Certainly, he is a very talented musician whom I eagerly recommend for all styles of piano or guitar instruction.

I appreciate that Dan has the flexibility and commitment to take me on as a student. It's easier for me to commit when he can do home-visits for lessons. I'm a beginner and he provides an appropriate level of guidance to push me to learn and prompt me to think "who I want to be" when playing guitar (style, future goals, etc). Seeing progress motivates me to keep practicing and trusting the process!

Jed instructed me in guitar and voice lessons. Jed is a great teacher - I learned a lot from him and he helped me to understand the parts of music that were confusing to me before. I appreciated his encouraging, laid back demeanor. He was never late to a lesson and was very accommodating with his schedule. He is extremely knowledgable of his field and I would recommend him to anyone!

As a beginner-level guitar player and singer, I couldn't speak more highly of Taylor as a teacher. I've been doing lessons with him for almost 2 years now and have improved from complete beginner to recording songs! With his help, I've not only learned how to play songs on a guitar, but he has also taught me how to sing with the correct breathing and increased my range. One of the biggest benefits is that he has a home recording studio - not only is it cool to have my own recording, but it helps me learn to be able to listen to myself. Taylor's teaching style is very engaging and enthusiastic, plus he's patient with my musical inexperience. He teaches me songs I want to learn as well as unique guitar and singing skills. I would highly recommend Taylor to any aspiring musician who wants to have fun lessons while also improving drastically.

I had just started guitar and was clueless about how to begin learning as an adult. Max was a great teacher, offering advice on everything from how to tune the guitar to playing chord progressions. Before the lessons, Max asked me to send him some songs I wanted to learn; Max learned them and used them as a framework for the lessons, making the instruction practical and fun. Moreover, whenever a music theory concept came up, he explained it in an intuitive way, which I really appreciated. The environment was constructive and relaxed, and I couldn't have asked for a better introduction to guitar.

When I teach I try to make sure my student does not get frustrated and hopeless. I take the special time to explain and demonstrate the guitar and move along at the pace of the student.
