Jeremie teaches my 10 year old son and his friend. They both love the guitar lessons and actually asked for longer sessions. They both look forward to the next lesson and are learning a lot.
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!!
My 2 children take lessons at Music Connection. We love both our instructors. They work great with the kids. They are patient with the beginners. The kids have learned and grown a lot since we started lessons. Ben is great to work with. He's very responsive to questions via email or phone. I would highly recommend Music Connection for anyone looking to take lessons.
I have 2 taking piano lessons here and Kimberly is excellent at keeping them engaged and motivated to learn. She is responsive to concerns and suggestions. We adore her.
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.
Patty and Jestin are very friendly and have opened their musical home to my 10 yr old daughter who is quite shy. She loves her weekly lessons and they are both extremely educated in music. They both play multiple instruments. She has learned a lot in the last 4 months plus. This couple, which I would highly recommend, are very hip and take onto kids as if they were their own. I love how they teach and how easily my child retains the information. They also are very easy going on missed lessons (sorry) and rescheduling! Thanks Patty & Jestin for spreading your musical talents!
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!
Patty is a great guitar instructor. Our son has taken lessons from her for 5 years, starting at 5 years old. Patty has proven to be a wonderful teacher for all ages. I highly recommend her.
The staff at Rockstar are easy to work with and friendly. I am an adult who takes guitar lessons. My son takes drum lessons and my daughter takes guitar lessons. Rockstar's instructors work well with kids and adults. The facility is clean and constantly updated. There is a clean bathroom and a comfortable waiting area. Their instructors are also working musicians so their lessons are applicable to real life experience.
I had my first lesson with Phil this past weekend and I thought he was great! He was very patient, knowledgeable, experienced and reasonably priced. In addition, my first lesson was free! I would definitely recommend him as a guitar instructor!

I teach guitar lessons. I love blues, rock, folk, some other interesting styles in the independent and "cult-following" genres. I am not as comfortable with jazz. I would do an even exchange if someone wanted to learn something from me I would take jazz lessons. I believe 45 minutes for a guitar lesson is perfectly reasonable, but if someone wanted to go longer or shorter we can get into contact and figure that out.

I have been playing guitar, bass and keyboard most of my life. I help run a service industry business for a living but, I like to do music in my free time. I am looking to help people learn how to play and give them the band setting. I also have a lot of my own equipment here, so if they travel to me, they wouldn't really need to bring any equipment saving them time and hassle. I can travel to them and bring my own equipment as well. It would give them a formal and informal training on what it's like to learn music and be in a band.
Effective and fast
