Been seeing Pete for Vocal and Guitar lessons for a couple months now and he's fantastic. He does a great job at taking your current talent and raising the bar to where you want to go. I've seen huge improvement in my range and vocal strength thanks to his excercises and tips. His studio is professional quality and amakes a great place to hear yourself back and make adjustments to get where you want to be. Just a knowledgable and helpful dude!

He taught 2 of my children. One learned guitar and the other piano. They both excelled! I would recommend him to others looking for private or group lessons.

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 :)

I have been taking lessons from Dan for more than two and a half years and it something I look forward to every week. Aside from being a great teacher, he is fun, understanding and very talented. He takes the time to help you understand the structure of what you are learning without over burdening you with theory. He is also really interested in making sure you are enjoying playing (that is the point) and getting out of it exactly what you want. Any time I have a request (no matter how absurd) of a song to learn, Dan takes the time to find a good arrangement at my level and teaches it to me. It is really nice having that flexibility and personal investment in my lessons. In just two and a half years, I went from playing no to guitar to be comfortable jamming with my friends while also developing my classical guitar playing skills. His musical interests are vast; from beautiful classical pieces to classic rock solos to movie soundtracks (he loves Storybook Love from the Princess Bride). This blend of genres and talents truly sets Dan a part and I would encourage anyone looking to finally learn the guitar to sign up for lessons with Dan.

I love working with Paul! I've been studying guitar and electric bass with him for over two years now. The growth I've experienced as a musician has been tremendous, and we have a blast together during lessons. He's funny, laid back, patient, and super smart (REALLY knows his stuff). You can tell you're working with a professional musician here. I love jamming together, our weekly lessons are the highlight of my week.

Glenn has been teaching my husband and I guitar and bass for a couple years. He has been able successfully tailor each of our lessons to our different tastes in music and learning styles. He encourages us to move beyond what's easy and keeps us from getting bored by incorporating various exercises that expand our skills. Glenn also believes in a balance and incorporates different types of exercises in each lesson, for example chords, picking, reading notes, reading tabs, ear exercises and music theory. Glenn's love for music is contagious and we are gratful to have him as our instructor.

I've taken lesson from Matt for 8 years. He helped me learn first the acoustic guitar, then the bass, electric guitar, and the drums! He's very knowledgeable on all instruments and helped me understand rhythm, theory, and scales by looking some popular songs as well as songs that I liked to learn. I found him to be a reliable source when I was learning performance guitar and music theory at College of DuPage. I am now studying music business at Columbia College Chicago and Matt is still an essential source who is helping me in all of my endeavors. I hope this review proves helpful, Matt has assisted me endlessly with my musical pursuits and I'm confident he'll do the same for you!

I first tried to learn guitar through a few of the popular guitar websites out there. I was able to pick up some of the basics like open chords and the pentatonic scales, but I also picked up a lot of bad habits. After a few months, I decided to take some private lessons to see what the experience would be like. I was pretty blown away by how much a learned in just 1 hour. Matt has been very effective at helping me improve my abilities in a relatively short amount of time. After just a few months of lessons, I felt confident enough to perform at a few local open mic nights. For me, the most important aspect of lessons has been learning from my mistakes. Without a professional teacher, it's hard to know what you're doing wrong, what you could be doing better, etc. Matt is an expert at all things guitar. If you take lessons with him and work hard at practicing, you're going to improve very quickly. It's that simple. I really can't say enough good things about my experience.

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!

I don't leave reviews very often, but I feel compelled to do so in this case. So here we go... In the past, I've taken guitar lessons from 8 or 9 different guitar teachers in this area throughout the years - some were ok, others were less than ok. I know the difference between a good teacher and an average one. So this time around I invested the time to do my homework because I didn't want to find another "pretty good" teacher. I wanted to find THE BEST guitar teacher. From the first moment I met Jacob at the American Academy of Guitar, it felt different... it just felt better. But first impressions don't tell the whole story, so I remained cautiously optimistic about how good these lessons with Jacob were really going to be... Well, the deeper we went, the better it got! This is exactly what I'd been looking for but never found until now! These lessons are a lot more fun and I'm learning more now than I ever have before! What makes Jacob better than all the other teachers I've ever had elsewhere? Here's the short list of observations I made: 1. It's very clear that his entire approach to teaching me is to help me reach my goals with the guitar. 2. The lessons are more fun than what I've had elsewhere. I've been thinking a lot about this and trying to put my finger on exactly what about Jacob makes the lessons more fun. It's his personality combined with his unique ability to instantly uncover bad habits I didn't even know I had in my playing... then he was able to help me fix them almost immediately and that led to... 3. I'm making big improvements in a very short period of time... not just because what he teaches me really works better than what I learned elsewhere in the past, but because he was able to help me quickly remove obstacles that had been holding my development back! That's all for now. I just want to say THANK YOU Jacob. I plan on continuing to learn from you for many years to come!!

I contacted Jerry,inquiring about in-home guitar lessons for my daughter. He replied immediately with helpful suggestions of an instructor. When I realized my daughter wanted a female instructor Jerry went out of his way to find out more about my daughter and the kind of instructor who would be compatible with her. He then suggested one of two female instructors he felt would meet her needs. I was impressed with the time and effort he put into helping me find an instructor for her. This was extraordinary that he would take the time to help me when it did not directly benefit him and he did not even know me! I had originally contacted Jerry because of his highly regarded reputation for teaching and instruction. But now I also hold him in high regard for his kindness and dedication to helping others find their way into the world of music.

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.

I have twin boys, who just turned 11 years old. They both have been taking guitar lessons for just under 2 years. They love taking guitar lessons, but, typically, only do the minimum requirement for practice. However, we recently began working with Andrew and, for the first time ever, they went back in, after their lesson, and practiced for another 30 minutes. This is a great testament to Andrew and how much they love working with him. Obviously, I highly recommend Andrew!!

Loved the Jeff Alterio Band! Jeff is well versed in our favorite rock guitar classics, they expertly executed Stevie Ray, Stones, Eagles, Hendrix, Zeppelin, Skynard, Muddy Waters & Hooker in that jamming guitar style you remember from the greats. They do not disappoint! These guys are fun & very talented musicians. Hope to have them play again soon. I'm sure they'll just get better over time, Now I'd like hear a little more of his original work Trash Opera.

Bellas Artes has almost become our home away from home. All three of our children take lessons there (violin, guitar, voice and musicgarten) and we truly could not be more pleased in the quality of instruction their receive every week! When our oldest daughter came to us and asked if she could please take violin lessons four years ago, we were not only surprised but also delighted but then the search began for a music studio. Where should we go? We were clueless but instantly felt like Bellas Artes was the place for us, after talking to Justin. Miss Constance, Mr. Brown, Miss Suzanna and Miss Destiney have been wonderful instructors for our children and we have so enjoyed watching them learn and grow and become excited about music and performing. We couldn't be happier!

I have been taking lessons with Jon over the past couple years. He is an exceptionally caring and superbly knowledgable teacher for both beginners and advanced students alike. He has taught me about guitar, upright bass, classical, jazz, pop, and rock bass playing and I I've never left a session without feeling like a better musician and learning more about theory and knowing exactly how to apply it to my instrument. I highly recommend him, definitely the best teacher I've ever had!
