When I came to Dave Lockwood for guitar lessons, I was struggling in kind of a self-taught rut. I could play chords for a lot of songs, but I didn't know the theory or anything you would call "advanced". Dave's methods show you how to understand the fretboard and why certain notes and chords go together. He is really helping me become a complete player. Mostly though, Dave is a very patient teacher. He doesn't mind going over the same material with you until you understand it and he'll take different approaches until you get it. I really appreciate this about his teaching methods.
Benjamin is a great teacher and a well-rounded musician. Starting out as a complete beginner with the guitar, he gave me lots of good tips and was great at explaining things in a way I could digest. I'm looking forward to taking more lessons with him as we continue to progress my playing skills.
Taking violin lessons (and now viola) with Paige. It's been a much better experience for me than my first time trying to learn violin. I appreciate that she's willing to adapt her lessons to my own goals and also select music that is actually pleasing to listen to even for an absolute beginner. As some other reviews mentioned, she's also very quick to reply to any messages.
Excellent first lesson. As an adult learning guitar, Eric's was a more holistic approach that got right into a meaningful lesson activity directly applied to the genre of music of interest to me.
Parker is a great instructor. I had no previous experience playing the acoustic guitar and he tailors the lessons so that I never feel overwhelmed but continue to make progress each week.
It is a privilege and an honor to be a Tara Simon Studios student. Tara's obvious performance talent is matched by her gift as a teacher. I started with Tara 3 years ago as an absolute beginner piano student, with nary a note of music capability explored, much less an iota of music theory knowledge. Tara was as eager and willing to take my humble starting place, delighting in my baby steps of progress, which were likely even slower for an adult student! Tara's insistence on accuracy/ tempo/attitude/professionalism prevailed, regardless of my level of piano skill. The studio policies and processes are as impeccable as the music training; Tara and her staff are on time and devoted to their students. The performance showcases are an outstanding aspect of TSS teaching, where the student learns from the stage as well as at lesson time. I am happy to say that there are numerous songs from several favorite composers that I can play, thanks to Tara and TSS. For anyone considering lessons from TSS, hurry! It is a gift for you.
Chris is a one of a kind guitar instructor. He is personable and dedicated to teaching music. I have learned more from him in a short amount of time than I have from previous instructors. He understands that each individual learns differently and he creates a program for every student. Working/Playing music with him has given me more motivation to play more at home (I work 50+ hours a week) than any other instructor has ever given me. I would highly recommend Mr.Silver and I am looking forward to continuing my lessons with him.
Russell is amazingly talented! He made our wedding so much more special by sharing his talent and singing and playing acoustic guitar. Russell is wonderful to work with. He was so accommodating. I would rate him above 5 starts if I could!
Jimmy was one of my friends who play guitar, When I started learning Jimmy was an outstanding friend who always encouraged me. Once he saw I was kinda serious he used to give me scales and exercises to get better. I have nothing but great things to say about Jimmy. He has a great style of teaching and encourages you to be better than you thought you could be. He is smart punctual and very flexible. He can teach you to play anything he is truly the most versatile musician I know. Jazz, rock, acoustic, classical , he can do it all and teach you effortlessly.
My daughter really enjoys taking piano lessons with Mateo. She is really interested in learning the piano and I believe most of that has to do with Mateo's encouragement and engagement level during the lessons. Mateo seems to really care about his students and according to my daughter, he is "really funny".
Michael Spring is a great guitar teacher. My son greatly enjoys his guitar lessons and is learning so much.
I am absolutely new to music/guitar and have had 2 lessons with Robert so far. I can tell you that he is a great instructor. Even after just 2 lessons, I feel like I've learned a lot and look forward to more lessons
Siddharth was a good instructor. He did a good job of teaching me the basics of the acoustic guitar as a beginner. He does not charge a lot either. Will recommend him to anyone interested in learning how to play the guitar.
I took 4 lessons with Kris before moving out of town, and I wish I could have taken him with me! I like that now I can pick up a guitar and feel comfortable enough to strum a little song, bc before I started I didn't even know how to hold the guitar right. Definitely a great teacher for beginners... i'd take more lessons if I lived closer!
Darian teaches guitar lessons to my Daughter. He was very assertive in finding her style both for learning and performing. He is a great teacher, specially for new beginners.
I am a seasoned live/session guitarist with 20 years of experience. I can teach anything, from acoustic to electric lead and beginner to advanced. I customized to each client, as per need.
I teach a 10 week group course that will have you playing a song day one (if you know basic chord shapes) or by lesson two if you don't. No reading of music necessary! And be able to play for family/friends inside of 10 weeks. After that, you can choose how you wish to progress. Lessons can be done via Skype. Saturdays available
I offer a beginner-structured series of lessons teaching the techniques, basics and ways to play and understand the guitar.

Hi! I am currently a college senior offering private guitar lessons. I have been playing and studying guitar consistently for 10 years. Also, I have an abundance experience in recording and performing. I am flexible with lesson times throughout the week. The length of each lesson is negotiable, but I would prefer each lesson to last from 30 minutes to an hour. Also, prices are negotiable, but the standard rate is $25 for 30 minutes. My lesson style is interactive; meaning that in the first lesson, I will present the student with some basic fundamental exercises and then I find out what the student wants to learn. The student will choose a song that they enjoy and would be reasonable for them to learn within roughly 1-5 sessions. On the second lesson, we will begin by reviewing the student's progress with their basic exercises and then move on to learning the song of their choice. Once the student has learned the song of their choice, they will once again be presented with a new set of exercises to practice and get to chose a new song to learn. Requirements: 1. That the student has their own instrument 2. That the student purchases a blank tablature booklet (this can typically be found at any music store that sells guitars for a reasonable price) 3. Following the first session, payment needs to be made upon arrival. 4. I only teach beginners who are 20 years of age and under.
