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.
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.
Really helpful! Takes the time to really get to know you which makes learning from him really comfortable. I will be recommending him to anyone who is looking for singing or piano lessons.
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!
Ive been trying for years to pick up learning guitar, with alyssa she treats learning as a wonderful experiance. I leave ready to practice what ive learned and see how the improvements i make progress as i come to each learning session. Highly recommended
I have known and worked with Jeff for 10 years, he is always very professional and competent. Taking guitar lessons increased my understanding and use of jazz chords dramatically and moved my playing to another level. Great instructor.
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.
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.
Cameron is the "ultimate" professional! He is an incredible musician and an inspiring guitar instructor who has taught me virtually everything I know about playing the guitar. Cameron is truly a pleasure to work with!
I have only communicated with Mr. Toms to discuss my needs and to review his work. We have scheduled the first lesson. However, He has been very pleasant to work with thus far. Our first guitar lesson is scheduled for 5/9/15.
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.
patient and kind guy. very knowledgeable of his craft. Great motivator.
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.
Austin is very proficient on the instruments and very patent in teaching what is needed for my personal development.
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.
