I have gotten a series of guitar lessons from Stevie. The progress I've made is amazing. If you're looking for a relaxed atmosphere to ask questions and learn to play guitar, Matthews is your guy. He is passionate about music and your ability to get better. I'm very excited to continue to learn more.

I've been taking guitar lessons with Tim for the better part of the year and I couldn't be happier with my experience. He's talented, patient, and super accommodating to my whacky schedule. We've worked on various styles such as Jazz, Folk, and Blues and thanks to Tim I've made significant progress in my guitar playing! I highly recommend Tim as a teacher.

Finding a good guitar and bass tutor can be pretty fraught. Anyone who knows a few scales can potentially set up shop. I had the misfortune of visiting several such "instructors." Unlike most of the folks on craigslist, Morgan is a true teacher. He has deep musical knowledge that spans genres and play styles, and will adapt his lessons to the interests of the student. But more importantly, he's just a great person - kind, patient, and passionate about music. Over 2 years of lessons, Morgan helped me progress from simple pop songs to Jazz comps, and even indulged my interest in kooky prog metal rhythms. The lessons were fun, spontaneous, and challenging. Bonus: Morgan is an experienced guitar tech with a fully outfitted shop in his house. I cannot overstate how convenient it is to be able to get your instrument fixed in the same location where you take your lessons. Virtually no one else in the area can provide this dual service. In summary: I wouldn't write such a long review if he wasn't the real deal. I left each lesson with a smile on my face and I saw the same in every other student that walked out the door before my timeslot. If you want to learn and actually have fun doing it, give this guy a call.

Dan's a fantastic teacher because he makes you want to be a better musician. He uses different ways of instructing that specifically cater to your tastes and interests. He's familiar with a wide range of music, genres, and instruments. I came to Dan for beginner guitar lessons, but ended up gaining much more musical knowledge than I could have ever imagined. Dan helped me with the technicalities of the guitar, and helped me refine and add to my skill as a drummer of 11 years. In Jam Class, we played everything from James Brown to Nirvana. Dan is able to foster a great community of musicians within Jam Class, and will not only teach you to play, but to perform and work with other musicians.

I have taken over a years worth of guitar lessons from American Music Studio and will continue taking lessons into the future. Brett in co. cater lessons to your skill level and learning style, encouraging you to push the limits and learn more. The instructors are approachable, motivational, personable and experts in their craft. I cannot express how educational and enlightening my experience with American Music Studio has been.

Mr. Walls is an enthusiastic and patient teacher. As a choir member at Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton for the past fifteen years, I have been able to sing liturgical music, and participate with other choirs in singing more complex pieces of music, such as requiems and compositions for rites of the church and special occasions. Our choir has sung in various languages, and joined other choirs in ecumenical choir fests. Mr. Walls has studied music composition, conducting, and history, and is an accomplished musician on several instruments, including the piano, organ, and guitar. He has several years teaching experience in the U.S. and abroad. I would say Mr. Walls' expertise and talent are second to none.

Williamson is doing an excellent job teaching me to play the guitar. Each week I am learning not just notes and chords but also the theory of them and how they apply to the guitar. He has the ability to understand my current level and give me the desire to push myself to get to the next level.

My 16 year old son has been taking guitar lessons from Tom for so many years I can't remember exactly how many it's been. Maybe five. Tom was born to teach (oh yes- and also be a musician!) He is kind and patient and really cares about his students as people, not just as musicians. In our heavily scheduled life, Tom never watches the clock. The lesson is over when it is complete, not when the timer beeps that 30 minutes is up. My husband and I would highly recommend Tom to anyone wanting to learn guitar - from beginner to expert, young to old. He's the best.

A friend's granddaughter told me about Jason Free with owner of SoundSmith Music Center. I decided to try to set up lessons with him. I have been a guitar student with Jason for three and a half years. My playing has definitely improved. He is generous with his time. The location of the store is convenient and the rates for lessons are reasonable. My lessons are structured to help me improve but we also play songs that I have worked on and Jason will help me overcome any problems I may have with the song. My granddaughter got a guitar for Christmas and I recommended my daughter contact SoundSmith Music Center for lessons. Sophie is now a student at SoundSmith Music Center. I would definitely recommend SouthSmith Music Center to friends and family.

Max Kuzmyak is a very knowledgeable musician with a large skill set that is useful in the music industry. He can teach trumpet, guitar, voice, and has extensive theory knowledge as well. He is also well versed in recording and audio engineering. Max is very friendly, easy to work with, and professional. I would highly recommend working with him if you are looking for a private teacher, or a recorder.

I've been working with Maurice for just a couple months now. He has taught me more guitar in less than 3 months than I've picked up in over 30 years of trying to pick it up by myself. He is not only a great guitarist, he is also a great teacher.

I've been taking lessons here for a year or two I think. They have been great and I plan on continuing to do so. Nothing like learning to play guitar while playing a song you chose.

James (Jimbo) is an incredible guitarist and an awesome, fun teacher! As a mostly self-taught musician with a deep technical understanding, he knows how to break it down to a level that is understandable and accessible for anyone at any musical level. He is patient and kind and has an energetic and grounded energy that creates a positive, stress-free learning environment. I highly recommend lessons with Jimbo to anyone looking to begin learning or grow existing guitar skills!

About

I have turned lessons with some kids into 6-8 year long mentoring relationships. Some have moved onto musics schools and Universities. I work with people from ages 7-61 currently. I have a 100% success rate with my students, but only when time and practice is regimented by the student . Studying and playing music for 30 years has taught me a lot. I base my lesson plans entirely ontbe individual I am working with . No 2 students of mine ever share the same lesson plan , unless requested by those individuals. Most of what I teach I learned by what “not to do” I have found that learning from past mistakes, in all fields of music, had made me very aware of what people should not do as well as areas of focus and strength.
