Jim is a great instructor. Our lessons are tailored to my interests - and week to week, the songs we focus on build on where I need improvement, along with relevant chord structure. Jim is easy to relate to, and that comes through in a relaxed learning environment. You get out what you put in - would definitely recommend Jim for lessons.Apr 4, 2016

Jim is a great guitar teacher He caters to exactly what you want to learn, he is well equipped to write musical arrangements in tab and official notation so you have both to learn from I teach guitar at a music school and I still study with Jim because he keeps challenging me so our lessons help me be a better teacher all around !!Apr 1, 2016
I've been taking guitar lessons from Jim Coley for a couple of years now. I was self taught on "cowboy chords" and decided in my mid 40's I wanted to learn different styles, be able to read tabs and learn more about the structure of sheet music. Jim's teaching style has made this challenge a fun and enjoyable learning experience. The selection of music and lessons he works with me on has tremendous range and style from Classic Rock, Latin, Funk, Jazz, Blues and more. I would highly recommend some sessions with Jim. It has been and continues to be a great experience.Apr 1, 2016
Highly recommended! I've been taking lessons from him for a few years now, and have learned a lot! We typically work on songs, and he's great about painlessly sneaking in elements of music theory, while still keeping things upbeat and fun.Apr 1, 2016
