So today was my first guitar lesson ever. As excited as I was I must say I was also a bit nervous. That being said, once I met Dave in person the jitters and butterflies were gone. Dave creates an awesome learning environment where you feel at ease and right at home. Dave was patient and explained things in a way that is easy to understand and grasp. Thank you Dave and looking forward to my next lesson.
I have really enjoyed my guitar lessons with Matt. I love that Matt allows students to start learning by focusing on their areas of interest. Matt is always flexible with my very busy schedule. Thanks for great lessons, Matt!
The best music school in all of Orlando and I think we have tried them all. Two of my kids and my husband take Piano and Guitar lessons with Elite Music Instruction. Very professional teachers.
First lesson next week!
Jake is a really knowledgeable guitar player and teacher. I started at an intermediate level and he really elevated my performance standards and gave me great finger strengthening exercises and assignments. I'm confident he could teach any level of guitar.
Gabriel is a great instructor. I have only been taking lessons for about a month and I'm amazed at how I've progressed. He makes it all very easy to grasp. I definitely recommend.
Brian was a fantastic piano and guitar instructor for my daughter. He truly makes learning fun for a teenager. He was always on time, patient during lessons, and his amazing talent was inspirational. Plus he has a great personality and gets along well with parents. His fees are very fair, too. (My daughter stopped lessons because she went off to college.).....Additionally, Brian is a wonderful entertainer for parties. He recently played at my mother's 85th birthday bash. EVERYONE loved his beautiful classical guitar music.
My 7 year old just started her lessons. Ben is very patient, and encouraging. She is very excited, and we are thrilled.
Ms. Minnie is an awesome, loving and an extremely caring teacher. Ms. Minnie goes out of her way to make the children feel special and very confident about themselves. Ms. Minnie holds 2 recitals each year and my Daughter looks forward to every single one. She commends each chil with beautiful trophies and always has a special speech prepared for each of her students. My Daughter has been with her for 2 years and has mastered the piano to the fullest. She is about to start taking guitar lessons with Ms. Minnie really soon. I would recommend Ms. Minnie to any child or adult who is looking for a loving and concerned teacher and friend. She is the greatest!!
I have some difficulty playing the guitar due to a neurological condition and he is very patient teaching me. I have never taken music lessons. I also like his entusiam and motivates me in each lesson
Lessons in Your Home was quick to tailor guitar lessons for my daughter. The instructor has been personable and has built wonderful rapport with her. She is gaining strong foundational skills each week. I highly recommend them!

I teach from the basics of guitar to music theory. I am very patient with beginners and understand that everyone learns at his/her own pace. I can teach how to read music or learn by simply playing by ear. I can teach all genres.

As a teacher, I focus equally on formal technique and personal expression. Mastering correct form provides the foundation, upon which a student's capacity for the latter may grow. I view our time together as an opportunity to encourage musical and personal growth. My goal is to encourage discipline while fostering creativity. Maintaining the student's interest by adapting my teaching methods to every individual is an important focus, as is engaging the student by allowing him/her choice in the material we learn in lessons. This not only facilitates a cooperative environment, but also allows me to tailor my teaching style to the student's interests, strengths, and learning preferences. My tuition for private instructions are as follows: * 30 minutes for $25 * 45 minutes for $37.50 * 60 minutes for $50 I believe music theory is an important focus for a student to understand how tones relate to each other in any piece of music. These relationships will be explored aurally, visually, and tactilely in all lessons. In teaching, my goal is to encourage students to learn and grow independently. In my studio (or your home), mistakes are opportunities for improvement. For the duration of our lesson, you (or your child) are in a nurturing zone of freedom of expression. Join me in an exploration of personal talent and creativity.

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 immediately felt a change in my voice after just a few lessons with Ms. Karen. She is an excellent teacher, and works very professionally. With her guidance, I have expanded my range greatly and have learned many different styles of singing. I have been able to work out certain "kinks" in my voice that I'd had for ages as well. Last November, I gained a superior rating at the district Solo and Ensemble festival-- which I could not have gotten without Karen's valuable help and experience. Additionally, I have received a part in my school's musical with her assistance for my audition piece. I am very comfortable around her and I put much trust into her work. She is a very kind woman, and I feel like I can achieve anything with my voice because of her. Karen cares so much for all of her students and I am extremely gracious that I have Ms. Karen for a teacher.
