Ben has a great system for teaching beginners guitar! Each lesson builds on the previous, and the goals are very clear. I have learned so much more taking lessons with Ben, than I did taking online skype lessons with a different teacher. The exercises and songs he gives me, keep me motivated to practice and I've noticed that I've improved a lot!
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 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!
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!
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.
Great guitar professor; highly recommend!
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.
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 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.
I was looking for someone to teach my son how to play a guitar ( no previous experience). Now thank to Phil Barrile he’s playing every day and continue to improve. Thank you Phil for being a great teacher to my son!
A crooner / singer and she was great! It was for an in-home 50th wedding anniversary celebration for my bosses in-laws who are 87 and 90 and they loved it, so thank you!
Enjoyable First Lesson. Made me feel very comfortable.
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!
My son has been taking piano lessons from Teresa for 6 years. The method of instruction is so insightful and nurturing. The staff at Music Makers for life are friendly and helpful. Not once in all these years has my son complained about going to piano lessons!
