Shaun was a fantastic beginner guitar instructor. I had never even picked up a guitar until our first lesson and I was reading music and playing songs by my second lesson. He was extremely patient, articulate and talented. He also came to my apartment which was very convenient. I would highly recommend him for anyone interested in learning how to play the guitar.

Started taking virtual lessons with Matt after a few years of playing and learning guitar on my own, and just after a month of lessons, he has helped me make significant progress.

In a handful of lessons with Ramiro, my understanding of theory and the guitar has increased substantially. Ramiro is a great guitarist and an even better teacher. Lessons are throughly planned out each week and . Highly recommend for anyone who wants to seriously improve

Paul responded quickly to my request of creating a gift card for my husband to surprise him on Christmas morning with guitar lessons. Would definitely recommend Paul!

Jonah has been teaching my son guitar lessons for a few months. My 6-year old son really likes him and his lesson. He is very good at having the children engaged in music and keeping their interest on the instrument learning.

I've only had a few lessons with Shaun so far but I'm impressed already with his teaching method, and his deep understanding of classic guitar (and his talent). I'm looking forward to really learning how to play guitar under his tutelage. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in not only learning how to play classical guitar, but understanding the fundamentals as well.

Paul is an excellent teacher. I knew several aspects of playing the guitar before taking lessons and Paul helped identify a practice plan that worked for my level of skill and goals.

Shaun customized a lesson plan just for me to play beyond my potential. I have been playing guitar for 20 years, but really wanted to dig into theory and techniques to make me better excel at it. After the first lesson I already found myself playing in tempo, increasing dexterity, and breaking bad habits. I would highly recommend shaun if you would like to learn or up your game in playing guitar.

Paul is great to work with. He is patient, and has been a musician all his life, something that becomes evident the minute he starts the lesson. Super nice and easy to talk to. This was my first of many more lessons with him. He made playing guitar a lot of fun after many years of not playing. I highly recommend Paul!

Paul is my first guitar teacher and I feel lucky to find such a great teacher and friendly man for that first experience. Paul gives me homework to practice in between two lessons and I can see improvement! I strongly recommend

Shane is an excellent guitar teacher. I have been taking lesson with him since March and have very much enjoyed the experience. Very knowledgeable and flexible when it Comes to what I am interested in learning. Also very flexible with schedule especially considering the crazy times we are in. We had to adjust from in person to online lessons very quickly and it was a seem less transition. I would highly recommend anyone at any age to take lessons with Shane.

Sam is a fabulous teacher and incredible musician. My 15 year old son took beginning guitar lessons with Sam, and always looked forward to each lesson. My son learned a large amount in a short period of time due to Sam’s expert knowledge, patience, and skilled guidance. I really appreciated the convenience of Sam coming to our home. Thank you, Sam!

Patrick is a great teacher! He’s super patient, laidback and flexible and his style is good combo of bringing his own material and ideas as well as working with your guitar goals and things you want to accomplish. Definitely gonna keep taking lessons. 👍

I’ve been working with Teague for a couple months, having started my guitar journey with a prerecorded online course. I’ve made progress faster than I could have expected since working with Teague; specifically, I’ve been making progress towards my own goals, not a generic lesson plan. Teague is an incredible, patient, and helpful teacher.

As a novice guitarist, I was intimidated to commit to guitar lessons, but Paul quickly diffused any hesitation with his warm patience and custom-paced lessons. He has not only taught me new techniques and songs, but very foundation things that I would've overlooked without a teacher, such as posture and thumb position. Stand up guy, who is very considerate of my work erratic work schedule! I would encourage any level guitarist to sign up with Paul. He has expedited my learning experience with his knowledge.

I've had a fantastic experience working with Shaun. A solid teacher. He is patient, helpful, and talented. I had been wanting to take guitar lessons for a very long time and I am so happy that Shaun is my teacher. Would definitely recommend him. Moreover, the fact that he comes over to my place for the class makes my life a thousand times easier.

I have been playing guitar for several years and had a good foundation but was hitting a wall making any real progress, especially when it came to learning guitar theory. I had tried several other methods of self teaching, Youtube/Patreon channels and even group classes, but was not having any success. I was a bit apprehensive on starting personal lessons, but I have made vastly more progress over the last 6 months with Paul than I had made over the previous 3 years trying other methods. I think the biggest thing that stands out to me is Paul's personalized way of teaching. He has tailored specific exercises that have helped me learn concepts that I have tried to understand for years and how they are incorporated into different songs that we will work on. Prior to starting lessons, Paul sent out a questionnaire to get an understanding of experience level, goals, fav artists, etc. Every song that we have worked on to better understand the concepts has been from an artist that I had noted in that questionnaire, which makes "practice" much more fun an approachable. Little things like that have gone a long way and I think really set Paul apart. Paul has also helped me overcome some bad habits that I have picked up along the way, which has also really helped to elevate my playing. I would highly recommend Paul for any level guitar player from beginner to advanced who is interested in taking their playing to the next level. Really looking forward to continuing my guitar playing journey with Paul's exceptional guidance!
