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...
I started taking guitar lessons with Dr. T about two months ago. In this short period of time, I have been able to learn the fundamentals. Dr. T will teach you the proper technique, will be patient with you, and will modify lessons to fit your progress. I count that as a blessing because while I can pick up some stuff quite fast other stuff takes me longer. The Lessons are about 45 minutes; but if his and your schedule permit, he is willing to put extra time at no charge to make sure you are able to make progress consistently. One of the things that impressed me was that even on the first lesson we jumped right into it with no delays. He was very courteous and friendly, but at the same time very conscientious of your time since he understands that you want to get the most value for the price you're paying. Overall, Dr. T is a very good instructor. I had zero experience with the guitar before, and with his help I have noticed improvement already. The last thing I would have to say is that to learn to play the guitar you have to put the time, practice, be patient and committed and you will succeed.
I had always wanted to take voice lessons but due to the expense, it was something I had never pursued. It was only when I was cast in a community theatre musical production for a character outside of my vocal range that I decided to pursue the opportunity. I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to study with Joe. He is very passionate about his craft. He is knowledgeable and efficient. His method of teaching is extremely comprehensive and with each lesson, I learned more and more. Over the course of our few weeks together, I expanded my vocal range and gained the confidence I needed to perform perfectly. My voice was noticeably stronger- not only to me, but to my family and my musical theater peers. He worked hard to accommodate my schedule and never hesitated to put in additional time. Recently, I was cast as a lead in another community theatre musical production. While my voice is pretty, I am confident that my ability to secure this role was because I had spent time working with Joe. I will continue to work with him throughout my community theatre endeavors and would recommend him to anyone seeking to improve their vocal range and/or skills. He truly is a wonderful teacher and this review does not do him justice.
Ryan is easy to work with, very personable and has an extensive background knowledge of guitar. The lessons are fun.
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 family has been taking music lesson from Abby Peck for several years now. We have always been extremely pleased with the overall product that Abby (Evolution of Music) has provided. She is highly skilled and talented, but she also has a gift of keeping her music real, down to earth, and very heart-warming!! Abby is a true joy to work with and we are truly grateful for the beautiful gift she shares with us!!
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.
Wanted to resume the guitar after 40 years. Instead of folk music, I wanted to learn classical. I was so fortunate to select Cameron. He has divided my instruction into the "book-learning, academic" and the creative. His style is inspirational and reinforcing. His approach has been great for this "older student". I recommend him highly.
My grandchildren love taking lessons at Creative Keys and especially enjoy performing at the recitals. I'm looking forward to seeing how much they'll grow musically over the coming years!
Flexible with schedule, open to ideas and easy to work with. Very happy with the outcome of our choreographed wedding dance!
Ken is a guitar teacher. He threw a lot of material at me but that's because I elected to go for twice a month lessons instead of weekly. He knows how to teach because he was a school teacher at one time.
Jason was simply amazing for my kids. He was so patient with them and taught them so much! I have recommended him to several of my friends for their kids and also for some adults I know as well! It was an amazing experience for my family! My kids love their guitars and have a profoundly deeper love of music. We are so grateful!
Phenomenal guitarist and a great teacher, He will defiantly bring your skills to the next level thanks Josh!
Austin is very proficient on the instruments and very patent in teaching what is needed for my personal development.
A lot of music teachers only focus on technique and theory. And a lot of teachers just show people how to play songs. We show individuals how to do both. Having fun playing songs and knowing technique and theory are equally important, because if you just learn songs, you'll only know how to do that and not really know how to play an instrument. While technique and theory are important, it can be boring and frustrating to focus primarily on that. At New Tampa Music Lessons, we balance musicianship and fun by making sure that with each lesson you are challenged with a new technical or theory concept, but always end with something fun such as your favorite riff or song. We use a variety of method books to accomplish this and encourage students to bring CDs or their iPod to their lesson to learn their favorite tunes.
I provide music lessons for students of all ages. I have been in the music world for over 15 years and can coach a student to a collegiate level in guitar and an advanced level in piano. I have worked with written/classical notation and the Nashville Number System (used for more rock and pop songs) and I tailor my lessons to fit the way the student wants to learn, not the other way around.
We provide lessons at beginner and intermediate levels. We work with groups for music theory, piano, and vocal training. We offer a special training for keyboardists using electronic keyboards, midi, and music workstations for music composition. Training is available for worship/music directors.
I have a very strong background in music theory, and I play professionally for 2 bands as well as solo with a loop pedal. I can teach you whatever you would like to learn, and I have a very patient and descriptive teaching style.
I provide beginner guitar lessons. I've played with a few professional bands, but I enjoy teaching beginners. I teach out of my home.
I am teaching guitar and bass guitar by ear. I have been playing for over 40 years. I have been playing professionally since I was 11 year old.
I will teach my students the basic techniques of classical and normal guitar playing. They will also learn the basic elements of the acoustic and electric guitars.
