Well, I have only had a couple of lessons with Otis but he is so layed back in his teaching style, I was instantly comfortable. Otis is very patient and encouraging. He has a lot of experience, he has played and written music for many years. He has also had his songs produced as well. He is well known in his community.

I've been taking guitar lessons from Nick Cooper for 7 months. Besides having a great time, I've learned a tremendous amount from Nick and improved my playing greatly. Whenever I'm having an issue, he's has been able to give me the right exercises and instruction to iron my problems out and keep me progressing. His lessons always keep in mind my personal preferences and objectives. I'm particularly excited about his plans for group workshops to involve all of his interested students. Being an older adult with a full-time job, I've been especially appreciative of his efforts to work within my schedule and time constraints. All in all, I look to be studying with Nick for a long time. Cliff Cahall

I have been taking classical guitar lessons from Bertrand for a few weeks and am pleased with the progress. Bertrand has a contagious music philosophy and a knack for intertwining genres. He emphasizes music theory beyond the guitar and is constantly interested in the structural foundations of the pieces I play.

My 9 year old daughter has been taking guitar lessons with Julie for a year. She has progressed nicely and really enjoys the lessons. The end of the year recital was wonderfully entertaining and a great goal for my daughter to work towards. Julie has been easy to communicate with and I have already recommended her to other mothers.

I am very happy with Craig as a teacher. He comes prepared to our lessons. Always looking for new things to push me to improve my skills. He listens and takes the time to understand my needs as a student. He clearly has a lot of practical guitar knowledge and is able to translate it into simple terms that I can understand.

Jaime has been a wonderful guitar tutor for me. I had no idea about guitar basics and here I am on track to start playing songs. It has been 2 months since i started class with Jaime and every class has been professional and personalized to my needs. He understood my strengths and corrected my mistakes. He consistently challenged me to move out of my comfort zone while playing. It takes patience to teach and Jaime has got it. He truly added value for the money I paid.

A perfect match for my 15 year old daughter taking singing lessons. Amanda's knowledge, talent, and enthusiasm are contagious. She has fostered my daughter's confidence and developed her singing skills. I highly recommend Amanda. You become part of her singing family and she gives more than 100% of herself each lesson. I wouldn't go anywhere else!

"I have been playing guitar my whole life and Russell showed me there is always more to learn about your own playing! Russell is an incredible and unique guitar teacher. Within' the first half of our first lesson, he had pointed out how I could get better dynamics out of my right hand picking style. He helped me prepare some guitar solos I never thought I'd be able to play. His lessons gave me confidence I needed to tackle some serious gigs:) Guitar playing is fun again! "

Shane is an awesome guitar teacher! He is very laid back, fun, and pays attention to where you are as a student. He pushes you, but also makes sure you're still having fun because he knows that's what it's all about. I highly recommend him as a teacher - and the G4 method is easy to follow. Instead of grabbing your usual beer and a Lyft, spend the cash on guitar lessons you have always wanted to take!

Evan is a fantastic music teacher! I took guitar lessons from him for a year, and was always impressed by his tailored approach to his students, his own playing ability, and his knowledge of music theory. Plus, the lessons were fun and introduced the basics of guitar in a fresh, memorable way. Highly recommended.

I have taken guitar lessons from Alan Donati for a number of years in order to better understand music. Being a weathered rock/blues drummer myself, I can attest that Alan is a very accomplished musician and seasoned music teacher who learned his craft via years of playing in rock, blues and jazz bands as well as attending Berklee as a solid foundation. Alan can teach a number of instruments well such as guitar, bass and piano alongside incorporating music theory with the practical applications. He is very adapt with technology as well as “old school”. I have seen Alan teach many students with great patience with tailored attention to the particular student’s interest. Some veteran musicians can only play well but not teach. However, Alan can obviously do both. And so I am giving Alan an outstanding review and rating.

My son took beginner piano lessons from Fiona last year. He is a very sensitive boy and was nervous about learning an instrument for the first time, but Fiona put him at ease right away. She has a sweet and earnest teaching style, and explains new concepts in a way that's welcoming and easy to understand. I know her willingness to teach him whatever music he wanted to learn went a long way towards keeping his attention on the piano and away from the iPad. We always looked forward to our lessons with her!

Manaj S.
Verified review

I started taking guitar lessons from Bob around 9 months ago. Prior to that, I had been self-training for around 3 years. Thanks to Bob's methodical way of teaching, I feel that I have made more progress in past 9 months than I had in the 3 years before that. Bob's teaching focuses heavily on music theory, and that itself was a boon for me. Knowing the theory not only opened my horizons to improvisation, but it also helped me write music on my own. In addition to that, Bob is invested in every aspect of the development of my musical skills, including my playing technique, precision and--last but not the least--finesse of playing. There's a difference in playing guitar for x number of years, and playing guitar in a way that's worthy of recording in a studio or performing in front of a live audience. Bob's lessons have made that difference more obvious to me than they ever were. Lastly, Bob also customizes the lessons based on my immediate requirements. So, if I have to learn a particular song to cover, or compose something for my band, Bob gives that as much importance as I would. In all, I'd recommend Bob to anybody who's serious about guitaring, and wants help in taking their guitaring to the level of a professional.
