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 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.
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.
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!
Even after mixed up locations Carl was flexible enough to reset that same day. As a first trail lesson Carl assessed my current skills, Gave me some exercises, even showed me a song and a few new chords. He demonstrated his playing skill in several different genre. I give a 4 only because I am super critical and "perfect" (a 5) is a really high bar. I am certain I will have more lessons with Carl.
David is Excellent! Great personality and teaching style. Our 10 year old is very comfortable and enjoying her lessons. She has already learned so much after her first 4 lessons. We definitely recommend David. Most reasonable rates , very flexible and punctual!
Very laid back and easy going. He was on vacation, but had his phone forwarded to him and took the time to talk to me about my daughter. Ron took every question with patience and confidence and was more concerned with protecting my daughter's voice than the range of it. He even sent me an almost immediate confirmation and directions to the studio. He was extremely gracious in scheduling my daughter so I could get her started on her voice lessons. There are no qualified voice teachers/coaches in our area, so I was really pleased to find I only have to drive 61 miles to get to the studio. I also liked the professional layout of his website and the glimpse of history behind Ron and his company. It is direct and to the point and easy to find the information you are looking for. He offered sample recordings on his website of his wife, who was very easy to listen to, on pitch and didn't hurt our ears, in spite of the low quality Mp3 quality of the recordings. Ron also mentioned that his wife was a voice coach as well. We are looking forward to the voice lessons/coaching provided by their company.
Rob is very patient and so encouraging! I enjoy our lessons and he always follows up with a re-cap. He is always open to anything you want to learn.
Aaron was great to work with and my kids loved him. I have two kids that trained under him (boy and girl) early teenagers and did well under him. My daughter is tough to keep focused, but Aaron was great with her keeping her on track. My son has really taken off playing with Aaron and still does today on his own. Unfortunately Aaron had moved from our area out of state, but the kids still use what he’s taught them to improve their skills. If you’re looking for guitar lessons for yourself or your children, Aaron is your guy. Good value, great with kids and worked around our schedule if we needed to. A+ Matthew M.
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!
Had my first lesson with Jeff. He is very welcoming and processes a wealth of knowledge. I look forward to more lessons.
Austin is very proficient on the instruments and very patent in teaching what is needed for my personal development.
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.
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.

Hard question to answer. As far as I'm aware, I only consider the comfortability of the student at hand. Based on how they react, if they've had previous lessons, I can assess the situation, repair and move on to better things: playing the guitar/instrument.
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 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.
From how to play rhythm acoustic to lead electric, we have the equipment and teachers to teach you. We offer basic theory classes and one-on-one teaching over the webcam. Please message me if you have any questions. -- Axel
