My son has been taking guitar lessons with Garreth for several months. I have been impressed by the way Garreth engages him during their lessons. He helps him explore music by teaching Colton to use what comes natural as well as giving him the tools he needs to improve!

I worked with Mike for nearly 5 years at our local music store, both of us giving guitar lessons. He actually taught me how to do guitar harmonies, and vocal harmonies when we both had some down time. He's a very good teacher and a Hell of a musician.

I've been taking guitar lessons with Phil for about 2 years, and I have been extremely impressed with his musical skills and his instructional skills. Phil is not the guy who "teaches a little on the side." He is a caring and dedicated musical education professional who will use a structured approach to take you where you want to go with your instrument.

Paul is a great guy! I am an intermediate guitar player and Paul has done a great job of assessing where I am at with my guitar playing. He has tailored our lessons to my current abilities and presents them in a way that is fun, interesting, challenging, and educational. And as a bonus Paul comes to my house for lessons. How can you beat that! I highly recommend Paul as a guitar teacher.

Sulaiman Zai Guitar Studio

Verified review

I made the leap to take my first guitar lessons without knowing anything about the instrument when I was 36 years old. With Sulaiman's expertise and patience, I learned to read music and play classical guitar as a soloist, as part of an ensemble, and as part of several musical productions that were composed by Sulaiman so that each musicians parts were written to their level of expertise. This has been so much more than just a guitar studio. Sulaiman and his family welcomed me into a musical environment where I was often pushed outside of my comfort zone, but always felt safe going there. Sulaiman's musical knowledge, technical prowess, and ability to understand people come together in a somewhat unconventional guitar studio where I learn to be a musician and learn about myself in the process.

I am a third year student studying at the University of Cincinnati: College-Conservatory of Music. I couldn't be more thankful for the time in which I had my lessons with David. Truly, if it weren't for his help, I wouldn't be in music school today. David is not only incredibly talented, but is also an incredibly versatile and personal individual. One of the best things about David is that he always goes the extra mile. He won't stop at simply training your voice; he will tackle your fears! If you're afraid of singing or playing in front of people, he's going to find a stage to put you on. He could have stuck with just performing, but to put it simply, David is the type that can't resist sharing his knowledge with others. I would definitely recommend him to anyone seeking lessons in the Indianapolis area. 5/5

I am a guitar/voice student with Bart at Reno's and he's great! I call him "The Song Doctor" because he revives songs I bring in with technique and great ideas! He is an amazing guitarist and patient teacher, even when I struggle. He knows music theory well and can teach this knowledge in an understandable and interesting way. Lessons are fun and non intimidating. Reno's Music is cool and I always feel welcome.

Aaron Chandler has my highest recommendation as a guitar teacher. He is, first of all, a highly skilled and experienced guitarist who can play impressively in just about any style. A former Jacobs School of Music student, he also has a thorough knowledge of music theory and is highly skilled at explaining even baffling theoretical complexities in a way students can understand. Most importantly, Aaron teaches his students how to practice effectively. You learn how to improve on the guitar. His students can reach any goals they set for themselves if they’re willing to put in the work. Aaron is also extremely patient. He tailors his teaching to the student. He is approachable, flexible, and is willing to take on just about anything a student is interested in. I've learned a tremendous amount from him & can play things I never would have been able to play before. ReWind Bloomington is also a great space to rehearse. It’s really the only space of its kind in Bloomington.

After choosing Clayton, I knew he would be a great teacher. Since I am a beginner, he has worked with me at a really slow pace--but I still feel like I learn something new during each lesson. I have improved a lot already and I know it's because Clayton is a great teacher. He knows a lot about guitars and guitar playing, I'm really glad I picked him!
