So far I have had two lessons, and they have both been fun and educational! I had taken lessons years ago, and it was the most boring thing ever. After my first lesson, Wolfgang had already taught me a simple song, and a bunch of the open chords. I am definitely happy in my choice to use Wolfgang to teach me guitar!
I have had Chris as a guitar instructor for about 6 months now. I wasn't sure what to expect when I hired Chris through Thumbtack but it has worked out really well. He knows just about everything there is to know about guitars. He will write out lessons for you, tailored to what your interests are and current skill level as a guitarist are. He is able to see where you are making mistakes and give advice on what to do to avoid repeating them. He has also done several amazing guitar setups for myself and my dad now which have been worth their weight in gold. In addition to being a guitar instructor, I have found that Chris knows a great deal about music production, mixing and mastering. He has been able to offer good advice recently as I setup my home studio and move toward posting some of my arrangements on YouTube. I highly recommend Chris for all serious guitar students out there. Get practicing!
I began my guitar lessons with Dave Garski initially knowing nothing at all about music theory or how to play the guitar. By the time that I ended my lessons with him three years later I was able to figure out and write my own music. I as well learned and became comfortable with many different scales. What I appreciated about Daves Teaching methods was the one and one teaching style. I think it allowed for a more personalized education plan that was custom tailored to my specific needs, in my areas of strength/difficulties in music. While a appreciated the free form teaching methods that he also practiced, I would have preferred teaching that was a bit more structured. Overall I have to say that I had an incredibley positive experience from Dave Garski's "guitar lessons orlando" and would, if I still had the financial means, continue my lessons with him if I could.
So far Emily has been great - she provides materials in advance, is clearly knowledgeable, and conducts my lessons on Skype while I am out of the country. She is good enough that I have hired her to do lessons with my teenage son.......
My 14 year old had her first lesson with Rob. She thoroughly enjoyed it. My daughter is self taught so we decided to take her playing to another level. Rob taylors his lessons. My daughter will continue with Rob.
âI have played guitar for many years, but other than a year or so of classical lessons many years ago in high school, I have never formally studied music until I started taking lessons from Sam. I have been taking lessons from Sam for over 3 years. I took lessons for 2 years, in person, while Sam was finishing his doctoral degree at FSU. I have been able to continue taking lessons via Skype. My progress has been beyond my expectations. Sam is so much more than a guitar teacher. His lessons are very thorough and include technique, musicality, theory, and repertoire. He has introduced me to a wide range of music, composers, and guitarists. Sam always has a positive attitude and he is very encouraging while being realistic in assessing my progress. And he always focuses on what is most important, the music. I highly recommend Sam to anyone interested in learning to play the guitar.â (Brinton H, 45)
Best guitar lessons I've ever had. Jeff is an incredible musician and his approach to teaching is awesome. I'm learning faster than I thought I could and having fun while doing it. If you're looking to learn how to play guitar, Jeff is your best option hands down.
I am self taught with my own views and ideas of music and how it works together :) I am inspired by many different genres of music and it gives me a very creative outlook
I teach from the heart the art of hearing feeling and making music
I teach you how to use the tools you have so you'll be able to learn on your own soon.
Genuine concern for helping students improve their playing
My name is Jeff Althouse, and I am the founder and owner of Mr. Jeffs Music Academy. I have been teaching music privately and in group settings for over twenty years. I enjoy sharing my ideas on how to successfully master an instrument with all age groups. I believe that the education of the student is the first priority, not the retail environment or the sale. My staff and I offer instruction on all instruments. I offer 30-minute lessons which cost $22.00 per number of lessons in the month. Hence, if there are four lessons in a month, the fee is $88.00; if there are five in a month, the fee is $110.00. Books are not included. There is also a one time $25 registration fee. Payment for lessons is due in advance on the first lesson of each month for the following month. All fees paid are non-refundable. Though it is not recommended, single lessons may be booked at the rate of $20.00 per half hour. Weekly students have priority on available times. The time scheduled for each students lesson is reserved for his or her exclusive use; rescheduling is not guaranteed. Notification by the student of inability to attend a private lesson does not excuse payment for the lesson which must be paid for, whether taken or missed. Unavoidable absences will be made up when possible and if common courtesies of notification were followed. If the lesson is not made up in 30 days, the student will get 11$ credit on next months tuition.

I give lessons/tutoring in guitar, chemistry, math (up to calculus 1 level), biology, philosophy and writing. I also love to take care of animals of any type; I have had them all! I am a student here in Orlando for the next three months until I go back up to UNF in Jacksonville to finish my biology degree. I am very friendly and get along great with people of all backgrounds and age groups. I will give you great methods that will help you teach yourself for the rest of your life! Science is my passion, and I will transfer that passion to you and try to make it as easy as possible. I have completed my college courses in these subjects with a B or above and still have all of the online and course notes to help you out! For my music lessons, I have been a guitarist for about five years, getting into many styles, including (but not limited to) jazz, funk, reggae, rock, oldies, psychedelic and acoustic finger style. I can help you develop your own style and master the techniques needed to get you sounding like you've always wanted! I love to have fun playing, and I know that I can get you to think about music in a completely different way. I can learn anything you'd like prior to our next lesson and teach it to you!
I am a guitarist with over ten years of experience. I teach many styles of guitar playing from classical to metal and can teach anywhere from children to adults. I will travel to your home for a more relaxed learning experience and for large families or groups of friends, I teach more than one person at a time.
