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...

My son started taking bass guitar lessons with Dr. T about 6-months ago and we couldn't be more pleased. Dr. T is not only knowledgeable and musically talented he is excellent at teaching. His lessons seem to be task oriented but fun. It is obvious that he has a passion not only for music, but also for helping students develop their love of music. We would definitely recommend him.

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.

Couldn't be happier with my first guitar lesson. He based the lesson on my skills and song wishes not some pre made curriculum! Really enjoyed it!

Tim is an excellent teacher and role model. I didn't feel very motivated about my guitar playing until Tim showed me how to practice correctly and get fast results. Tim's tracking method via his website is amazing! I would recommend Happy Fingers Guitar Lessons without hesitation :)

    When seeking a qualified guitar/bass teacher one needs to look no further than Cameron. I have taken lessons with Cameron for the past 4 years and see improvements in my playing everyday. Cameron takes his time with every student he meets and helps them focus on becoming diverse in many styles. I have recommended Cameron to friends (now fulfilled students) and wouldn't hesitate to do it again. Whether youve just started or have been playing for years, Cameron is just the guy to take you to the next level.

      Emily Jones is the perfect teacher for guitar lessons. She cared about what I wanted to learn and how I wanted to learn. Emily is a genuinely kind and nonetheless a talented musician.

      About

      The quality of my lessons to the money you pay is second-to-none. I am a college student, who loves playing guitar and learning about music. I bring that passion, and knowledge to my students in a way that they can APPLY IT. Time and time again , I see students quit their instruments because the teacher is basically lecturing the student on music theory, scales, genres, etc. Whenever I teach a topic I try to explain the students why it is important, and show the student what they can do with the information I am giving them. For example, teaching the student all of the major pentatonic scales in each key is great. However, if you do not learn how to phrase those scales together you can never write a solo. My hands on approach to teaching will leave your impressed with your knowledge about guitar and music in no time.

      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.
