My son loves going to his guitar lessons and always has something positive to share after having worked with Larry.
I have played guitar since I was 12 and am now 64. When I decided to expand my knowledge of the guitar and improve my technique there was only one person in my mind to go to, Jimmy Dykes. Jimmy' knowledge of all styles of music, his knowledge of reading, his knowledge of the fretboard is as good as it gets. His passion for guitar and the desire to pass this on through teaching makes him an outstanding instructor. I have recommended Jimmy to anyone who wants to take lessons on guitar or bass whether they are beginners or someone, like myself, who have played for a long time and want to take their playing to a higher level and expand their horizons.
Enjoyed these great guitar lessons while I could!
I've been taking guitar lessons from Jay for about 1&1/2 years! Because of Jay's teaching method and patience, I have more than surpassed all expectations I had about being able to play the guitar. My goals were to learn how to play the guitar if I could and have FUN doing it! Jay's method, 'Vertical Truth' is easy to comprehend and with Jay's help I am playing more songs than I could have ever imagined. Also with Jay's help I have been able to begin transferring what knowledge of music theory I have from playing other instruments to the guitar! Simply put, Jays method of teaching is designed to help each student at their own pace as no two individuals are the same! 'Vertical Truth' is a fabulous way to learn how to play the guitar and Jay is a GREAT teacher! Thanks Jay!!!!👍
Scott is incredibly easy to work with, flexible, and accommodating. As far as I can tell, he is skilled and very knowledgeible with the guitar, acoustic and electric.
Michael was a fantastic teacher. Most productive guitar lessons I've ever had.
I've been taking guitar lessons for a couple months now and I've grown exponentially as a guitarist. It's a nice and friendly environment, and they have teachers who actually know what they're doing. I would recommend KC Music to everyone looking to become a better musician.
Great company and an even better instructor. Leigh Ann has done a great job teaching me the French language. She is very adaptable to my learning style, and she goes above and beyond to make sure I’m getting the most out of her lessons. I highly recommend going to the Language and Music House. It will improve your language skills and make you enthusiastic for all the possibilities of world travel.
Dave is a kind and engaging teacher. His philosophy and approach make learning the guitar as an adult less daunting. I can easily see why people of all ages enjoy their lessons with him.
She is awesome. Definitely excited to continue lessons.
Just finished my first lesson with Tim. Everything went awesome! Tim was very patient and very helpful. I felt like I learned quite a bit just in the short time of our lesson. Very much looking forward to our next lesson. Over time I have a feeling Tim is going to help me become the guitar player I have always wanted to be! Would recommend to anyone wanting to learn, or just sharpen their skills even more. Many thanks Tim.
Kenny is very friendly and explains concepts in ways that are easy for beginners to understand. Would recommend to anyone looking to pick up guitar or just build on what they already know.
My 13-year-old son had his 1st experience playing saxophone with KC Rock Band & Guitar this summer and I cannot say enough positive things about it! Not only have I witnessed a great improvement in his skills, he practices because he WANTS to & he has thoroughly enjoyed this fun & creative experience! We can't wait to attend the Rock Band concert next week!
A Major is professional very flexible and accommodating, good value.
I have known Elizabeth for nearly 15 years. She has always strived to be the very best she can be, for herself and others. Elizabeth continues to find ways to enhance her abilities as a music professional. Elizabeth and I work closely together. I have observed her and her interactions with students, parents and colleagues. I have witnessed her students maturing in their music studies while having fun "playing" music. Elizabeth has an outstanding work / teaching ethic and has high standards for herself and those who work with her. I have, and will again, recommend Elizabeth as a private music teacher of harp, piano, guitar and music theory.
I am a guitar player. I have been playing for 20 years, and I play in a rock band in Kansas City. I have taught many people to play guitar.
I am an aspiring guitarist and a people person. I love playing the guitar and would love to help you start playing or improve your playing! I am 19 years old and have played for almost eight years now. I took about two-and-a-half years worth of lessons and have self-taught since. I am most suitable for teaching beginners or intermediate players and typically people around my age or younger (kids too!), but I am open to just about anything! I play and teach mostly blues, country, pop, and some rock! I want to tailor to my students. I want to teach you what you want to learn, and I will steer you in the right direction to being the guitar player you want to be. I will teach you everything you need to know to get started. Give me a shout if you're interested!
My name is Logan and I have been playing guitar for over 10 years (I began in 5th grade). 95% of my knowledge and skill derive from self-taught methods, although I have taken group guitar lessons and one-on-one guitar lessons. With this experience I know what makes a good lesson and what doesn't, and on top of that I have taken a multitude of high-level music theory classes online so my knowledge goes further than just the guitar. I would prefer to work mostly with people new to the guitar or with little experience as I do have a more unique style of of playing and teaching.

My slogan is "Making connections count." I am a skilled signer/songwriter and enjoy giving guitar and singing lessons. I am also skilled at helping grow their social media presence. My background in theater and english also allows me to teach or tutor actors or anyone trying to hone their writing and speaking skills.
I teach folk, pop and classical guitar, English as a second language, and beginning writing to reading. I always use the techniques of Interest-Driven Learning, making certain that all lessons are connected in some palpable way to learner interests.
