I've only recently begun taking piano lessons, but I can already tell that Jon Novi is the kind of teacher who sees limitless potential in his students. His enthusiasm buoys me even when I think I've messed up a song, and encourages me to try again. Also, his piano skills are on point, and he does a good job of explaining how to read a score and the mechanics of playing the piano. Beyond piano know-how, though, I would argue that it is Jon Novi's zest for teaching that makes me glad I am taking lessons with him. You won't regret it.
Mr. Bob has provided my children (8 and 9 years old) with piano lessons in our home as well as the studio. They went from not knowing anything about music to reading notes and playing songs within a couple of weeks. When they would get frustrated he helped them work through their struggles to show them they could be successful. I would highly recommend Mr. Bob.
My daughter started piano lessons with Stacey just a month ago but she is so excited every week to go. We have been very happy with how Stacey has progressed her - continually adding more difficult pieces to work on to see what she can do. This is our first experience w music lessons of any type and we are really happy with Stacey De & Co! Even my son, who never wants to try anything new, has started asking about taking drum lessons there. We couldn't be happier :)
Matt is an exceptional guitar teacher. He has a great balance of ultimate patience and expansive skill. He tailors the lessons exactly to my skill level, and is great about pushing me to improve in a gentle way. Matt can decode any song I want to play, and break it down in a way that works best with my approach to learning and my skill level. In addition to being an excellent guitar teacher, Matt works with my whole family to bring us together as a band (guitar, drums, piano, and voice). He has an uncanny ability to get the instrument mix perfect, and to coach all of us to come together. I am a 53 year-old guy, and Matt is not only exceptional for me, but also adapts perfectly for my two daughters (age 18 on piano and age 14 on drums). Both of my daughters begrudgingly put in years of piano lessons with conventional teachers, but now truly enjoy playing together under Matt's tutelage. Further, Matt is a great guy ... very dependable and trustworthy. I have had several guitar teachers, and none came anywhere close to Matt's teaching abilities. I cannot recommend Matt highly enough.
Took guitar lessons for a couple years here. He definitely knows his stuff and does a good job making sure you understand it as well. Being well versed in more than just playing, I also was given advice on my own music and production. Definitely recommended!
More than just a teacher. I took guitar lessons with Paul for eight years. He helped me realize my natural ear for music, and allowed me to figure out what I wanted to learn. Our lessons were always different. Sometimes I would bring in songs that I wanted to learn, and sometimes he would have things he thought I should know how to play, which helped me learn similar songs later on. When I was applying to college and needed to learn how to read music and play jazz guitar, he tailored all of our lessons so that I could learn those techniques quickly and most importantly, efficiently. Paul's personality transcends the teacher-student relationship, which allowed he and I to become very good friends. Paul William is an excellent teacher for whatever you need to learn. You can't go wrong taking lessons from him.
Three lessons in and our 10 year old son loves his guitar lessons
Pete taught our son James guitar lessons for about two years. James had never played guitar prior to meeting with Pete, and I was impressed by Pete's patience, optimism and professionalism at every lesson. James can now play several pop songs and even some beginner classical music. Thanks Pete!
Irwin is great with young kids, and my twin boys (almost 7) have been enjoying beginning guitar lessons with him. I like that he teaches them how to read music and encourages them to memorize songs. It's how I learned piano as a little girl and I'm enjoying seeing the boys progress and learn to understand written music. My goal has been for the boys to get used to a weekly music lesson and enjoy that as part of their weekly routine...so far Irwin has been a great fit for us and I highly recommend! :)
Aaron is great. Been taking mandolin lessons from him. I am an experienced guitarist and Aaron is adapting to how I want to learn well. He is very patient and flexible with grown up schedules.
Got my 15 year old daughter guitar lessons with David & he was AMAZING!!
Kimberlyrics is a great place to learn to sing or play an instrument. My children have had a few voice teachers in the past but Kimberly Church is the best. My children like her, they want to attend lessons every week and have come a long way in their vocal skills. They have also started Guitar lesson with her too and love it! I would highly recommend Kimberlyrics to anyone that wants to learn to play an instrument or to learn to sing better!
I've taken guitar lessons over the years and Fran is the best instructor, I have ever met. He has the ability to teach and convey theory in a very concise and organized manner. His blueprint process helps you become a better player.
Nick is a great teacher. He is very knowledgeable and talented. I'm taking lessons for the acoustic guitar. He's great at listening to what I want to achieve and understands how to help me, given my current level and available time I can commit.
I've been learning from Jon for over 3 years now. I am 48 years old and have wanted to play guitar forever. Jon's attention and desire to teach is unsurpassed by any other teacher I've been to. Jon constantly goes out of his way to help his students including bit not limited to hosting live events for his students to get a real stage feel for the instrument and how it feels to be a real musician. He is always caring and takes the time to get to know his students and what they want to achieve. His studio setting and teaching practices are relaxing and focused. I would not look for another instructor.
Enjoyable First Lesson. Made me feel very comfortable.
Joe is a wonderful guitar teacher! I'm able to learn some popular songs as well as learning the right way to make chords and notes. He's really patient, and takes the time to really help me. I know he's also recorded and played professionally, and I highly recommend him!
Great guitar professor; highly recommend!
Phil is the best guitar teacher you'll find. Extremely knowledgeable and attentive to your individual goals, with years of professional experience to back it up. Want to be a true musician? Learn from one!
My son learned to play guitar there at the age of 5. He is now 12 and has continued his lessons and has formed a Rock Band where they all practice and perform through the music school. They have all learned a tremendous amount and it continues to be a wonderful experience for them.
I was looking for someone to teach my son how to play a guitar ( no previous experience). Now thank to Phil Barrile he’s playing every day and continue to improve. Thank you Phil for being a great teacher to my son!
