I spoke with Dennis extensively before my first lesson and he assured me that he would be able to teach me how to play guitar. Dennis informed me that I would know the fret board and would know a song by the end of my first lesson. He asked me to give him eight lessons and he would prove to me that he can teach me to play the guitar. I was very hesitant in hiring Dennis because of all the past experiences I have had with other instructors. So, I decided to give Dennis a shot at this challenge. Dennis will be my final guitar instructor. If he can't teach me no one can. I have had 6+ guitar instructors since I started playing and taking guitar lessons as a New Year's resolution in 2016. I have struggled in this journey and I started to think that maybe playing guitar just wasn't for me. The time and money I was spending with other instructors and saw no progression was making me think this way. I have been playing and taking lessons for over a year now and still do not know one complete song from beginning to end. I have always wanted to play the guitar and want to possibly make this a second income source by playing for the public. Dennis arrived at my home for my first lesson this past Tuesday. He introduced himself and is very laid back and friendly but professional. We immediately went to work and he informed me again of what we were going to accomplish in that first lesson. That is exactly what happened! By the end of my first lesson I knew the fret board and learned how to play the song Knockin on Heaven's Door. He taught me more in the first hour than other instructors did in several lessons. I felt like a weight had been lifted off of me, because he made me feel like I can accomplish this journey of learning to play the guitar. Dennis does charge a higher price per lesson then any of my other instructors and his technique is wellworth it! Especially when you are in the comfort of your own home and who doesn't already feel comfortable with where they live? I know that I have only had one lesson with Dennis but he is encouraging and has excited me again about playing the guitar. Dennis delivered what he said he was going to do and that means a lot to me! As I told Dennis in one of our initial conversations, he will be my last guitar instructor. Because he will either teach me or guitar really isnt for me...

Rob does a great job making my bass lessons fun and engaging, and is great at matching the material to the individual student. I really like that he writes things down for you to reference later and answers questions well. He's definitely taken the intimidation out of learning an instrument. Overall, he's very professional and is a teacher I'd recommend to anyone.

My 9 year old daughter had never picked up a guitar before taking lessons with Brenden. She's doing great and is falling in love with it already. I'm so impressed that he's not just teaching her how to play the notes but everything from good posture to proper positioning to reading music. Brenden is personable, patient and professional (alliteration not intended). I would recommend him to anyone wanted to learn from scratch or hone your craft. He's a great teacher.

carl is a nice guy. He plays verbatim his resume. He comes from a place of classical study and this is his offer to any student who desires the ability to play guitar. I think his genius playing ability built through laborious years of technique and nuance are also his restriction for he only holds court in this arena. (i.e classical, flamenco, ragtime, jazz). These are abilities that are important and through the journey of attaining this sound in your resume, you may find yourself flourishing in other areas in life as well. You may also find yourself building a wall so insular that you can only relate to ghosts of strings past. Carl may not be for me because my journey on guitar, though littered with cob webs, is not paved in high society ethos and arduous hours of technique in pursuit of a classical idiom; however, Carl and his knowledge of the latter mentioned genres and means to attain them are very important. Not only am I happy he is out there, I went to bed last night wishing I was 10 again just so I could start all over and re-learn guitar with that basic development of European and South American guitar technique. So goto Carl, learn the history of guitar integrity and begin the journey of a lifetime.

I try to teach myself guitar through the internet... and I think it back fired. Rob was able to work with me with my odd mixed background. He has the great ability to work with you and utilize what you already know to help learning new material. We got started by reworking some foundational issue and some music theories. Then we added some finger exercises to build up strength and dexterity. We also set some short term and long term goals to work towards and look forward to. To top it off, he is able to work around my miserable schedule and is very flexible to accommodate my needs. I should have just saved myself the headaches and take some lessons right away instead of trusting the internet (never trust the internet). Highly recommend.

I came to American rock school as an adult 38-year-old wanting to get better at playing guitar. I had taken lessons from five teachers over the previous four years. I thought that basic chords and scales were about all I would ever be able to play. I am not a musically talented person, I just enjoy music. American rock school has taught me to hammer on, pull off, bend strings, add tremolo, and play most every chord shape on the guitar. Now I can jam along with all my favorite songs which is something I thought I would never be able to do. The school also puts students together to form bands, it gives kids the opportunity to feel like a rockstar and play on stage, they even get some public events.

Austin is very proficient on the instruments and very patent in teaching what is needed for my personal development.

About

I'm a self-taught guitar player. I do local performances around the university area. My main focus is to express the fun of playing music with others and to allow my students to become involved in the music-making process as early as possible. Knowledge of music theory is not necessary as I will teach you the ideas behind chords, melody, harmony, and rhythm. The purpose of these lessons is so that the student may feel at ease learning songs as well as jamming out with their friends and other musicians. Genres of interest include (but are not limited to) pop, folk, reggae, country, and jazz.

I can teach a 10 year old the basics, a 20 year old how to solo, and any age how to write, craft, and create lyrics/songs of their own. I don't fall into the category "those who can't do...teach. I can and do make my living with music and CHOOSE to teach others willing to learn how to / and have the passion to create original music. Glenn Roberts

I play better than most instructors, using right hand/finger techniques rather than just a flat pick. You will learn how to use the total length of the fretboard and maximize the resonance from the tone woods in an acoustic guitar, enabling the best sound from your played composition of choice.
