I sought Mr. Novi out after taking a long hiatus from piano. I have had many piano teachers but Mr. Novi is definitely one of the most fun and enthusiastic teachers I've had. I have had many years of classical piano instruction but am completely new to jazz. Mr. Novi will give me suggestions on new pieces to learn, but ultimately leaves choosing what I learn up to me, no matter what style I want to learn (classical, jazz, rock n' roll, etc). Because of this I never see practicing as a chore since I am only playing the pieces that I truly enjoy. Mr. Novi is a fantastic musician himself, it's very inspiring to listen to him play! I would absolutely recommend Mr. Novi for anyone interested in studying piano.
Mr. Bob has provided my children (8 and 9 years old) with piano lessons in our home as well as the studio. They went from not knowing anything about music to reading notes and playing songs within a couple of weeks. When they would get frustrated he helped them work through their struggles to show them they could be successful. I would highly recommend Mr. Bob.
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 :)
Music lessons (Bass and Guitar). Matt is patient and makes learning an instrument as an adult fun. He caters to your tastes and goals, the lessons never feel like a chore, it is a nice break in the routine every week. Highly recommended !!
Matt does an excellent job with my son for guitar lessons. He works very well with kids. My son really enjoys it! Matt is always on time and prepared for the lesson. I'm very pleased with his service.
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.
My daughter has been taking guitar lessons with Irwin for the past few months. She loves it! His affection for children, as well as his expertise is obvious. I would highly recommend him as a guitar instructor!
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.
I got SO much more than I asked for connecting with Altered Stage. Not only does my membership get me access to unlimited guitar lessons with an awesome teacher, it also includes a great space with all the equipment needed, a welcoming community of likeminded and friendly recreational musicians, and the chance to play on-stage with my fellow members once/month. I went from being the guy who could play chords and learn simple songs through tabs to someone who understands music theory and feels comfortable jamming with strangers at the drop of a hat. A huge change from where I started and not at all what I expected. AS gives members the chance to get involved as little or as much as one wants. I could not recommend them more to musicians at any level.
I really enjoyed taking guitar lessons with Ryan! He took time to really listen to and understand what my goals were and helped me work towards them, which is no small feat for a complete beginner. He explained new concepts in ways I could understand and I felt comfortable asking for clarification. He also gave me a variety of different exercises (chords, scales, picking, strumming, full songs) to keep things interesting and to keep me engaged. I also liked that he added in a little music theory (at my request) so that I knew why I was doing what I was doing. In all Ryan is kind, chill, accommodating, talented, and thoughtful, so I would definitely recommend him as a teacher.
I took guitar lessons from Fran. He is a very soulful and talented person. As a teacher, he is knowledgeable and helped me accelerate in my journey to learn guitar. You can't go wrong with Fran. He is one of the best!
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.
Bob is an amazing guitarist and an oustanding teacher. He is very patient and is extremly good in breaking things down, to make it easier for a beginner. His lessons are very clear and structured. He pays extra care in correcting the techniques and keeping it correct and simple. Learning Guitar from Bob is fun!!
My son learned to play guitar there at the age of 5. He is now 12 and has continued his lessons and has formed a Rock Band where they all practice and perform through the music school. They have all learned a tremendous amount and it continues to be a wonderful experience for them.
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.
From beginning to intermediate, learn guitar and bass from just about any genre with fun easy steps.
Andrew has a real passion for helping people reach their musical goals
My foremost objective is to enhance my students' passion for music. I strive to help each and every student improve his/her ability to express himself/herself through his/her instrument. As your instructor, I will always appeal to your musical interests, basing our lessons on what you would like to learn. I will do so by using the knowledge I have gained from attaining a bachelor's degree in music from Bradley University as well as from my years of professional experience in a variety of musical genres. I am seeking dedicated and hardworking students, with a positive attitude, who additionally look forward to the opportunity for musical growth. Music is an unbelievable form of creative expression. My plan on our lessons is staying true to this value by being exciting and enjoyable for each of us. Because if you are not having fun playing music, then you are not playing music.
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...
I am the kind of teacher who wants you to play what you want to play. I am not going to make you learn to play all of my favorite songs, I want to ask you what songs you want to play and sing so you can have fun while we work on it together.
If you wanna have some fun with learning the guitar and not just learn from some boring teacher, I'm your guy.
