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 :)

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 just had my first lesson with Jeremie a couple of weeks ago, and he was wonderful! He was very professional, but really fun, and was able to answer any questions I had with ease. The first lesson was very manageable but I felt like I was learning a lot the entire time. Also, he was very polite and respectful when it came to pointing out things that I needed to do differently. I would definitely recommend Jeremie to anyone who is looking for 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!

Bob is a natural as a teacher who makes learning the guitar and bass a fun, challenging and exciting experience. I've been taking lessons with him for nearly 3 years now and have made a huge amount of progress in my playing and my knowledge of music theory. He's quite simply the best music teacher I've ever had (and I've had quite a few!) and I can't recommend him highly enough. He's a thoroughly lovely guy who also happens to be a master guitar player and musician.

My 10 year old is learning bass guitar. Tim is patient, has an easy going personality, reasonable rates, is flexible (though busy) plus he has a sweet & welcoming dog to entertain you if you stay during the lesson.

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.

Your lesson is all about how you want to play and how best to do it. I will provide beginning music theory training as part of our lessons as well. I love teaching and accept beginners of all ages.

I don't just teach out of a method book. I have my own materials written out, and customize every lesson for each individual student. It's my job to combine your musical goals with what I know you need to learn.

I'm a guitarist, with eight years of experience. I enjoy playing in multiple styles: rock, blues, jazz, classical, metal, funk, etc. I know a moderate amount of theory, so depending on how you'd like to learn, I could apply that into my lessons. Any age group is fine. I really enjoy teaching what I know.

Do you want to learn guitar playing? I will teach you how to play the guitar. I'll have you learning the chords and scales you need to succeed. Just tell me what you want to get out of guitar, and I'll help in any and every way that I can. Music is at your fingertips! I can teach you basic chord structures as well as scales. I specialize in blues, rock, country, and other forms of guitar-based music. I am proficient in both acoustic and electric playing, and I can assist in technical specifics with the guitar, including strings, pedals, amplifier suggestions, and anything else you may have questions with.
