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!

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!!

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.

I can't speak highly enough about my experience with Dave as a guitar instructor. He offers such a range of flexibility to what I am wanting to learn, and in my desired genre, at a pace I am comfortable with. He works scheduled lessons within the hours I have available and offers his input on what to work on in between lessons to better my skills in areas that are more challenging. While listening to his own original songs I also found him to be the perfect fit for playing at our wedding reception. He offered to play specific requests but we felt completely comfortable leaving it up to him. He played beautifully and instinctively knew what suited the occasion. If anyone is looking for a great guitar instructor I highly suggest Dave!

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 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 teach what the student wants to learn. We can do theory, scales and power chords. Some players just want to be able to play chords. Others want to play blues licks, and some want to be rock stars. I will help the student reach their goals in playing.

I do not instruct on how to sight read music. I teach how to play guitar. Unless a person plans on being a Classical Musician, you do not need to be able to sight read music. I do teach music theory, notation and Tablature, which is a widely accepted way of learning songs and sharing ideas. Working with both adults and kids, I can taylor what a person needs to do to be successful.

About

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.
