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.

I have been taking lessons from Dan for more than two and a half years and it something I look forward to every week. Aside from being a great teacher, he is fun, understanding and very talented. He takes the time to help you understand the structure of what you are learning without over burdening you with theory. He is also really interested in making sure you are enjoying playing (that is the point) and getting out of it exactly what you want. Any time I have a request (no matter how absurd) of a song to learn, Dan takes the time to find a good arrangement at my level and teaches it to me. It is really nice having that flexibility and personal investment in my lessons. In just two and a half years, I went from playing no to guitar to be comfortable jamming with my friends while also developing my classical guitar playing skills. His musical interests are vast; from beautiful classical pieces to classic rock solos to movie soundtracks (he loves Storybook Love from the Princess Bride). This blend of genres and talents truly sets Dan a part and I would encourage anyone looking to finally learn the guitar to sign up for lessons with Dan.

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.

Bob is a natural as a teacher who makes learning the guitar and bass a fun, challenging and exciting experience. I've been taking lessons with him for nearly 3 years now and have made a huge amount of progress in my playing and my knowledge of music theory. He's quite simply the best music teacher I've ever had (and I've had quite a few!) and I can't recommend him highly enough. He's a thoroughly lovely guy who also happens to be a master guitar player and musician.

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 had been looking for a chance to take my guitar abilities to the next level since graduating from college with my music business degree. While I've met many guitar players who were capable, I wanted the best guitar teacher I could find and not ONLY is Paul an excellent guitar player, but he's an excellent teacher as well. His patience while I worked through more advanced techniques was incredible and his ability to provide the learning material in simple terms helped immensely. If you're looking for a guitar player to teach you, you can find those anywhere. But if you want an amazing guitar player with equally impressive teaching abilities, Paul is your ideal teacher. I 100% recommend him without question.

    Joe has been teaching my two young boys for a over a year and I cannot say enough about how blessed we are to have found him. Joe is skilled in many instruments, which allows my boys to benefit from learning the foundation instrument, the piano, but also branching out into drums, voice, and guitar all from the same instructor. In addition to being a skilled musician, Joe is also skilled in the art of teaching, which sets him apart from others we have tried. Joe incorporates music theory into the lessons so my boys can begin to understand important musical concepts in addition to continuing to learn to read more complex sheet music. As far as teaching, Joe is blessed with the ability to balance being firm with being nurturing, which can be challenging even in parenting. Joe is excellent in keeping my boys engaged and interested in their lessons by balancing learning/practicing material that is standard in learning, with material that they choose to learn such as current popular songs. Joe has a warm and friendly personality, which makes him very easy to work with. Joe teaches students of all ages including adults, which is helpful if parents want to take lessons as well. So, while you are scrolling down the long list of music teachers trying to pick a name "out of a hat", do yourself a favor and put an end to the tedious search, "call off the dogs" and contact Joe Grez. You will happy with your choice. Chris, Keith, and Nicholas

    I've been studying with Miss Brown for a few years now. I had always wanted to play piano so when I retired I took lessons with her. Now I'm learning to play guitar. She makes everything easy to understand. I'm learning so much. Really nice and great teacher!
