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.

I knew nothing about music except that I loved listening to it since I can remember, Upon my retirement from education and at the encouragement of my 7 year old grandson who was taking guitar lessons, I also began guitar lessons with Eric. In the few months that I have been his student, Eric has demonstrated his superior knowledge of music, outstanding ability to teach using a variety of methods as well as much patience. I highly recommend Eric as a teacher to anyone wanting to learn about music and how to play guitar.

I`ve been taking guitar lessons from Steve for seven weeks now and I find him to be a GREAT teacher and very knowledgeable on everything when it comes to anything related to music. If you want to know anything about a particular instrument or Amp or anything related to music Steve can guide you. I`m an older student and mentally handicapped sometimes ;) and he`s very patient with me. I give him 5 stars and would recommend to him to anyone.

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.

David Joel has helped me immensely improve in my ability to play the guitar. Before starting lessons with him I had over 6 years experience playing the guitar, including 2 years of beginner lessons. During that time I relied heavily on guitar tabs and what I could find on the internet. I came to David with decent technique but something was definitely lacking in my playing. David helped me figure out what I was missing and helped me get to a level of playing I never thought I could reach. It wasn't easy as he had me going back to the basics. I learned how to read sheet music, how to keep a better tempo, and the music theory behind it all. It has been about 2 years now with David and I am continually learning and improving. Overall my experience with David has been thoroughly enjoyable and I would recommend his services to anyone, whether they are new to the guitar or have been playing for years.

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 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!

My 10 year old daughter has been taking singing lessons from Paul for the past 2 years, (recently added guitar lessons) -- I cannot even put into words how awesome he is as an teacher. Just the right amount of nurturing, positive encouragement and fun. And he comes with years and years of "in the business" experience, so his advice really carries weight. It's a bit of a drive from where we are to get to him, but we cannot even imagine going to anyone else. Daughter literally looks forward to each lesson (this is the same person that groans every morning about school, just to give some context). Worth the drive. Worth the cost.

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.

Max is a great teacher. He’s super patient and you can tell that he genuinely loves what he does. I didn’t have any experience with the guitar before taking lessons with him and he does a really good job at breaking ideas down and explaining them so that they make sense. He also personalizes lessons specifically to my music taste which is really cool—he’s learned every song I’ve asked him to, and he’s taught them all to me. Sick teacher A+!!

Rob has been giving my grandson lessons in piano since the spring of 2017. My grandson had been to a few different teachers that did not have the patience for younger children. Rob developed great lesson plans that were fun while my grandson learned. Rob's experience and positive way of teaching allows us the reassurance to recommend him to so many others. We're so lucky we found him ! Not many music teachers fulfill so many qualities we were looking for. (Affordable, flexible schedule, experience with young children and always positive and encouraging) A +++ Carol O from Wilmington, De
