Jeremy is an outstanding instructor. I had no experience with musical instruments whatsoever, and I have made great strides within a month of learning from Jeremy. He is very flexible with scheduling and teaching, is very friendly, and is an expert in his craft. I would recommend Jeremy to anyone who is considering learning the guitar.

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.

My experience has been excellent with Ric. He is a great guitar instructor. He is also very friendly and flexible. I enjoy my lessons, but I also enjoy our conversations. The studio is really cool too. My recommendation speaks for itself, as I will be signing up my seven-year-old son with Ric for his first guitar lessons. Thumbs up!

Cesry has been instructing my son, Austin, on guitar for a few months. Austin has Asperger's syndrome, and Cesry does a great job of communicating with him and finding the best ways to teach him. Cesry is very reliable with communicating about scheduling and showing up on time or early for lessons. He clearly has a passion for teaching music and helping kids succeed. He leaves clear notes for Austin about what they did during the lesson and what Austin should work on during the week. Cesry is always courteous and kind, and we are very blessed to have him as Austin's guitar teacher.

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.

Everything! Jon Price’s teaching qualities are suited to your needs and goals. He makes guitar lessons so much fun . He has alot of experience and has you playing songs of your choice quickly. The “Price” is right (the cost of lessons and Jon Price). I highly recommend Release Musicians.

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!

About

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.

About

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.

About

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.

About

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.
