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.

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 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.

Awesome experience. I was a Guinea pig for their intensive approach. I started with no (I mean zero, like 0.00) kmowledge of guitar playing, and after three days was able to almost hold my own in a group jam. Jason is an amazing instructor - he gives enough theory to satisfy a curious mind, while also emphasizing just playing and having fun. I dont even live in Chicago (San Francisco is home), and I joined Altered Stage because it's so awesome. Flying out again next week for more.

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!

    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.

      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.


      I've spent my life writing for all the major guitar magazines and websites and have interviewed and/or shot video guitar lessons with hundreds of major guitar industry celebrities, including everyone from Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin to Aerosmith, Van Halen, B.B. King, the Allman Brothers, and famous modern bands, famous country guitarists, famous classical guitarists, famous blues and jazz guitarists, and so many it's hard to remember them all. I've learned so much from this, plus through the process of writing dozens of books for major music industry publishers -- not to mention playing live in working bands for nearly 35 years... Please contact me for more information...

      My teaching is highly improvisational. I'm going to create a curriculum based around what you want to get out of the lessons. Every person is different.
