I recently started taking guitar lessons from Mark. So far, he is great! I started taking lessons without any prior guitar playing experience. I have sang in choirs over the years so I have some understanding of music theory. Mark has been teaching me to sight read for guitar and it has be amazing to realize how it relates to sight reading for singing! Mark is very patient if I make a mistake and is very encouraging in letting me know when I've made progress. I can tell he truly enjoys teaching and has a wealth of knowledge to share!

My experience with Mark as been just what I had hoped and more. As an adult student with no formal training I was thrilled to find the reviews on Thumbtack about Mark were true. I have enjoyed my lessons so much, Mark is extremely knowledgeable, very patient, and has a flair for teaching the guitar. The lessons are always light and fun, he truly cares that you also understand the instrument. I feel he gives so much because he truly cares for his students, loves teaching and the guitar.

I sought out guitar lessons because I felt I'd reached the limit of what I could teach myself. After taking lessons with Gareth I've become a lot more confident in my playing and have greatly improved my understanding of guitar and music in general. The lessons are challenging but honestly it's a huge plus -- he teaches in a way that's designed to make you improve, and you don't get better at anything without pushing yourself. I've enjoyed lessons more than I thought I would and each makes for a fun hour to look forward to during the week. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Gareth to anyone; novice, intermediate, touring pro, and bedroom virtuoso players can all benefit from his teaching.

Weekly electric guitar lessons. Gareth was extremely professional, personable and patient. He has that whole cool, rock vibe going that was inspiring to my 10 year old son :-) He explained things very clearly and gave drills to practice but also incorporated those new chords into a current rock song for my son to practice - which made it so much more fun for him. Highly recommend Gareth!

Bass guitar lessons from Gareth. Could not have been a nicer instructor, and was very patient with me, and constantly challenging me and giving me all of the resources I needed and then some. Would recommend him to anyone. I've had 3 bass instructor teachers over the years and Gareth was by far the best.

We aren't meeting until July because of my schedule not hers. She's been great to work with and get a date scheduled. I'm looking forward to my daughter taking piano and voice lessons with her. I couldn't be more thrilled. She responds quickly. Such an answer to our prayers for my daughter.

Just had my first lesson. I was really nervous. It had been over 40 years since picking up a guitar. I have some arthritis in my hands and Sarah figured out a creative way for me to play comfortably. She was relaxed, knowledgeable, and encouraging. Sarah made complex concepts very accessable. By the end of the lesson I couldn't wait to go home and practice!

Sarah is a wonderful guitar teacher. She really helped me with a lot of music that I have wanted to be able to play for a long time. And now I can.

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.

Stephen and The Brigantine Band were an excellent addition to our event. We hosted a community event in which they provided the live entertainment. They were extremely easy to work with, very professional and tailored their playlist to match the event and audience. We had some hiccups on our end last minute, but Stephen and his crew were accommodating and helped think through solutions. It was a great event! I would definitely recommend The Brigantine Band! We will also be utilizing them for future events!

Not only is Bart extremely talented, patient, and encouraging, he also takes the time to learn about his students and their reasons for taking lessons, tailoring a program custom-designed for each client based on their individual goals. He constantly impresses with his ability to inspire me to be a better musician (and how he can explain musical theory in a way that actually makes sense!) without making me feel overwhelmed or discouraged. The confidence I have gained as a songwriter and performer has been more than I ever expected in less than a year of working with him. He is a true musical genius and I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone!

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.

Bart has been teaching me for just over a year. It's been a great experience. He's good about learning what you like musically yet still challenging you to get out that comfort zone and try new skills.

Sulai is a fabulous guitar teacher. He is a fabulous music teacher -- and a good friend too. Sulai is a world-class player. In fact, he founded the guitar department at the world famous Jacob School of Music at Indiana University several years ago. I've taken years of lesson on various instruments from many teachers, and the thing about Sulai that makes him special is his approach towards life -- Buddhist-like -- and how this translates into his approach to teaching the guitar. He will teach you how to feel with the guitar, how to play it without it playing you. He will start from the first day teaching how it feels to be a virtuoso. The technical skills follow that -- and follow it quickly. He focuses on technique and far less on repertoire. He believes, correctly I think, that repertoire will easily accumulate if you have good technique. Sulai is a low-stress teacher, very patient, and loves to be challenged. I've been with him for four years, and even though I've recently moved out of town, I make it a point to travel to him a couple times a month for lessons. We augment that with periodic lessons over Skype. I highly recommend him.

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.

A lesson with Sulaiman Zai is like experiencing poetry juxtaposed with a frequent nod toward a sensitive musical technique. His love of music is infectious and inspiring. I recommend Sulai to guitar students of all skill levels!

Sabrina is teaching piano to my Kindergarten-aged twins. She is great with young kids and their parents. She's very flexible with her teaching, willing to adapt to the style that fits them best. The lessons have included a conga drum to learn keeping time, as well as opening up the piano to show how the inside works. The learning environment in her home is very relaxing, and helps to calm my very energetic boys. When my boys do get distracted, she can effectively rein them back in or use their curiosity as a teachable moment when appropriate.
