I have been taking lessons from Trent for a month or so now and he is great. I have been playing guitar for almost 19 years and decided to go back and learn theory and enjoy it a ton. He is able to break thoughts down and explain them in a way one can understand. Highly recommended!!
I'm a beginning / intermediate bass player getting back into it after not playing for a lot of years, and trying to learn to do jazz bass stuff for a jazz trio with some friends. Every time I mention a song we're doing, Jeremy knows all kinds of stuff about the song, its history, the chord progressions, etc, and has been really helpful at increasing my comfort doing walking bass lines. It's been a great way to pick up lots of jazz and music theory and context that wouldn't have been easy to pick up on my own. I'm a few lessons in, and so far: great guy, great lessons.
I took weekly guitar lessons from Johnny A about 10 years ago when I was 12-13. I had to stop when high school started to accommodate a football/basketball practice schedule, but continued to schedule 1-time lessons to learn specific skills (like slide playing, etc.) He helped mix the lessons into a combination of what I "wanted" to learn (to keep me interested) and what I needed to learn (to progress as a guitar player). 10 years later, I'm hopelessly addicted to the guitar. I have a number of friends who started lessons (with different teachers) and gave up on it early because it wasn't fun. Well, Johnny A helped hook me early, helped me get through the frustrating first weeks, and helped turn me into an guitar player who has actually been paid to play. I'd recommend John to anyone looking for a new addiction.
After trying to learn guitar casually on my own for a few years, I decided to seek out lessons. When I compared a few places I felt like Brian Armor would be a good teacher. I started taking weekly lessons a few months ago and chose a favorite rock song to learn. Since then I've added several songs and feel great about my progress. Brian is good at teaching things quickly. He knows how to adapt to my pace and scale it down. He gives me a good sense of where I'm at and what to work on, including reminders to avoid my bad habits. I'm impressed that Brian can listen to a song and is able to play it by ear, with the right tuning, key, and rhythm. Overall I'm having fun, playing songs I like (not just scales and chord progressions), and looking forward to getting better. Guitar lessons are my favorite part about Mondays! I highly recommend guitar lessons with Brian.
I had a guitar teacher named Phil Black, and he was a very cool dude. But in five years, I learned practically nothing from the man...ended up getting lessons from Geoff, and now I know what I'm doing. He really knows what he's doing, but I'm sure Phil did as well. The difference is that Geoff can actually teach you what you need to know with ease and simplicity. Highly recommend.
John has been my guitar teacher for several years and he has been a wonderful mentor. He is very skilled and does an extremely good job at explaining his musical knowledge. Whether it comes to jazz, classical rock, blues, alternative, or really any genre of music, John is an expert. He teaches lessons and plays at various venues with his band or as a solo act. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an experienced guitarist and teacher.
Overall good experience. My kids really seem to enjoy the music lessons
Bryan engaged our son from the very first lesson, and focused on his interests. Bryan challenges and encourages him every lesson, and after only a couple months he is loving playing real songs. Highly recommend Bryan!
I am a guitar and bass teacher in the Springboro, Ohio, area. My personal musical journey started with piano lessons at age four, and I have been playing and teaching guitar and bass for 26 years. I have received musical theory instruction at the college level as well as from some of the Cincinnati area's finest guitar and bass instructors. My teaching pedagogy blends method with theory through an in-depth analysis of various metal, rock, and/or country styles and techniques that are indigenous to the needs of the student. I am here to help you accomplish your personal musical goals.
Extremely patient teacher. Customize lessons to each student. I'm happy to teach beginning students.
I offer hands-on guitar lessons to the students' preference. I am an accomplished young guitar player who plays in all genres of music.
The purpose of the Well Oiled Vocal Studio is to provide each student with the tools they need to produce easy and beautiful sounds in all genres, using practical instruction and positive reinforcement. I specializes in college -- prep as well as postgraduate repertoire. My audition knowledge and close relationship with many voice faculty around the country helps my sense of repertoire choices for young and mature singers alike. Though all students are welcome to audition, the private studio does not take students younger than thirteen years old.
My main focus is giving worship guitar lessons to Christians wanting to learn worship-focused techniques. I have strong backgrounds in rock, blues, jazz, as well as being classically trained in college. I take what I have learned about different styles of music and apply it to worship concepts. When you come for lessons, we will first determine where your level of musical knowledge is and start from there. I am able to teach everything, from basic-level chords to advance-level improv soloing. As lessons progress, we will focus on music theory, aural skills, sheet music reading as well as the standard worship guitar repertoire. I am an artist, and I will strive to push you to excellence by developing a lesson plan around your personal style of learning.
I have been a musician for 20 years. I started out on guitar and did lessons in my early teens for 5 years. I began to grow more interested in other instruments, so I began to play the drums. I would call myself a drummer not a guitarist; however, I know more than most guitarist would be able to teach. I have been in multiple projects growing up; visit my Facebook page for my most recent one. My day job is working with at-risk youth who have had serious trauma or some other serious mental health issue. Also, I have worked with all ages of kids in my past job. I was a public speaker who talked in different schools in the NKY area.
I believe that music is a powerful and transformative skill for people of all ages to learn. Children who study music routinely perform better in school and are more likely to graduate. Music education gives the gift of being able to express oneself, which I believe to be one of the greatest gifts a person can give another. In signing for lessons with me, you will have someone in your corner to help explain things like technique, theory, and timbre. I offer the first lesson for free as my chance to audition to be your teacher.
I believe in what I do.
I teach the students what they want to learn. I don't use the same lesson plan for every student. Each student has a personal lesson plan made specifically for what they want.
You learn to play better, so you can touch more hearts! I teach beginning guitar (all styles), classical guitar (all levels) and music theory and improvisation. I am a former university instructor with 30 years of experience.
