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.
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.
"Good to Great" Tim is a great teacher and a chill guy - he's fun to work with and very knowledgeable about music. I am not a beginner, but I have never studied music. I have learned a ton working with Tim and he has clearly helped my playing a lot. I look forward to more!
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 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!
Learning guitar is certainly a long term endeavor, but Joe really makes it interesting and rewarding. He completely organizes the lessons to the individual students wants and is always encouraging and patient.

My name is Brent. I have been playing guitar for 13 years and have had multiple students. I play mostly the blues, rock and folk, but let's play the music you want to play.

Long-term lesson plans are designed after a free trial lesson with the student, and are created to serve their interests, goals, and needs. The Video Showcase program gives students the motivation to master challenging new songs, and celebrates their accomplishments by immortalizing them through film.
