I am a big fan of Jeremie's teaching method. This guy is amazing. Our lessons are online but that in no way diminishes their quality. I look forward to each lesson and suspect that will be the case indefinitely. He helped me find a new guitar, gave me some great tips about what to look for in an amp. He's given me innumerable pointers, pieces of music theory, sheet music (including tablature) for songs I'm interested in, and great advice about how to take stock in my progress (especially during times when it seems like I'm not moving forward very much). I don't think I could recommend Jeremie enough. If you get the chance to work with him, do yourself a favor and take it.

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.

I took guitar lessons with Shane for about 3 or so years and it was such a great experience. After trying many other places that gave lessons, the experience that I had with Shane really made it easy, fun, and enjoyable. I learned A TON while still getting to pick the style of music I like. I was able to explore different types of music and different artists that Shane introduced to me, some of which are among my favorites today. Choosing Shane at TriTone music was a great decision that made for a fantastic learning experience for me.

Matt played for our daughter's wedding and we couldn't have been happier with the results. His acoustic guitar playing before the wedding ceremony set just the right tone and filled the church with beautiful music. Matt's playing gave a jumpstart to a truly glorious evening.

Al taught my husband piano for several years and voice lessons for myself. We both felt very blessed to have him as our instructor. He is very calm, patient, kind, encouraging, and teaches per the needs and style of the individual. We were thankful to have an instructor that would teach us with the type of music that we are passionate about: Christian and praise & worship. Al is extremely talented in teaching, performing, and creating music and song. He loves his work as he enjoys sharing his knowledge and talents with others.

I've learned so much with American Academy of Guitar Mastery! When I first started, I barely knew how to hold a chord...now I am playing my favorite songs, and writing my own music! I am so impressed with the results I have gotten in such a short amount of time! Definitely the best music lessons I've ever received.

Brad Neiman was exceptional with his help and direction. He was extremely nice, courteous and professional. Definitely knows what he's doing and his experience in music production shows with the efficiency of the editing and such. The studio is brand new with top notch state of the art equipment and I was honored to be the first customer. I definitely recommend checking this place out if you want a great and affordable studio experience.

I have worked with Nick at Parks for a better half of 7 years and not only is he a talented musician, producer and engineer in his own right, he is one of the most hard working, patient, and fun people to work with. His knowledge and passion for music production is unparalleled and has incredible attention to detail. One of my all time favorite people to work with!

I really enjoyed taking guitar lessons with Ryan! He took time to really listen to and understand what my goals were and helped me work towards them, which is no small feat for a complete beginner. He explained new concepts in ways I could understand and I felt comfortable asking for clarification. He also gave me a variety of different exercises (chords, scales, picking, strumming, full songs) to keep things interesting and to keep me engaged. I also liked that he added in a little music theory (at my request) so that I knew why I was doing what I was doing. In all Ryan is kind, chill, accommodating, talented, and thoughtful, so I would definitely recommend him as a teacher.

Milan is an excellent audio engineer. I had a demo tape made within a matter of days, and it definitely would not have been possible without him. He worked extremely hard in a very short matter of time to make sure everything sounded as best it possibly could. He's very passionate about what he does, and I would definitely work with him again!

About

I perform, teach and write songs. In terms of guitar lessons, my process is unique in that I will meet you where you are at. I'm a gigging musician, so I'm very excited about playing and sharing music. I've studied Jazz, Brazilian and Folk guitar, but I started out teaching myself. I've always been a difficult student and I've worked very hard to get where I am. For this reason, I've developed ways to explain and teach music that are accessible to students of all ages. However, my expertise is in beginning and intermediate students. As a performer, I'm extremely versatile. I can play a three hour covers set as back ground music both solo and also can bands for big parties, like weddings or bar mitzvahs. I can play intricate jazz and nuanced folk music and also get people dancing with pop music and rock. I write originals too! I have even been a singing telegram, delivering concerts to family members and loved ones. As a songwriter, I can write in many genres. I've studied folk, Brazilian and jazz music, but I also have a great ear and sense of functional music theory. I have a degree in journalism and that sense of investigation pays off when writing songs for people!
