I’ve been taking guitar lessons from Gregg every other week for the last 6 months. The main reason I decided to seek out private guitar lessons from an instructor, was because I couldn’t get into online or DVD guitar lessons which I attempted for several months. Moreover, I’m old school when it comes down to music lessons, due to learning the cello through classroom instructor- based lessons from elementary to High School, along with private lessons thereafter. With that being said I can say I’ve made one of the best decisions towards enhancing my playing on the guitar by taking lessons with Gregg. When I first started taking lessons from Gregg, he provided an individual plan for me to help with learning scales, technique exercises, licks, and improvisation. He showed me how to make my own melodies on the guitar by using scale/chord relations. He provided the theory behind using various chords with scales which I did not gain from DVD or online guitar learning. He also broke down how much time I should spend on practicing the guitar to get where I want to be. He is very encouraging and will provide feedback to you which will enable you to improve in certain areas. I would like to recommend Gregg for beginner to intermediate players, as well as advanced players who are preparing for gigs. In addition, Gregg cannot practice for you, he can only provide lessons. I try to practice from 30 minutes to 2 hours a day depending on my daily schedule. Gregg is a great teacher, I am already playing with others (bassist and drummer) and using the skills he taught me to improvise my playing.

I took bass lessons with Morgan; not only did he teach me bass, but music! Keys, scales, modes, majors & minors... he tailored his teaching to what I could absorb, and opened my eyes to the possibilities...

if you take bass lessons from Dave, you won't be disappointed. Whatever style of bass you like, he's been there and done it, and he can take you there too.

Our family has had great experiences with Tempee. My younger sister took bass lessons from him while she lived in the area and thoroughly enjoyed them. My son is currently taking guitar lessons and is really growing as a guitarist. One of my favorite parts about my son's lessons is the music theory that Tempee seamlessly incorporates into the lessons. Tempee's enthusiasm and patience also go a long way in making my son look forward to his weekly lesson and actually practice in the meantime.

I spent four years a bass student of Jason's and cannot give high enough praise. His skill on a wide range of styles, knowledge of music and the theory behind it is amazing. As is his patience with even rank beginners, like me. Most certainly a teacher i would encourage anyone desiring to learn from the start, or to improve on existing abilities, to seek out.

I was with Kim for 4 years, and I can honestly say that she made learning double bass easy, as well as fun. There was never a dull lesson, and she always motivated me to continue to practice and further my skills in the instrument. She worked on my school orchestra music, helping myself to perfect it, and also would teach me other techniques/exercises alongside. Honestly, working with Kim for as long as I did was a great experience, and I've become a better player because of all her hard work. She is truly dedicated, and loves playing/teaching double bass.

Starting from scratch I was able to learn the basics and more involved in playing the bass guitar. Dwight remained very helpful, encouraging, and most importantly patient. Dwight always pushed me to be confident In myself and kept the lessons fresh. He was an excellent instructor for all ages and all levels of those interested in music. I recommend to all, you will be pleased by his professionalism and his desire for you to learn.

Chris was such a wonderful teacher. Not only was he friendly but also understanding and really met me where I was in my beginner skill set. I have absolutely no background in playing music but Chris was able to break it down for me in a way were not only did I absorb it but I was also excited to learn more and practice afterwards. He was extremely respectful, warm and understanding teacher. I recommend him and love his approach and energy. After the first lesson he gave me homework based on my specific needs. I can't say enough good things about him. If you're looking for an amazingly talented bass instructor Chris is the real deal.

After two lessons, I feel very encouraged that this was the right move. Rob is easy-going, a good listener, and focused on teaching me to *actually play*. He deals with technique and theory, but is not rigid or dogmatic about it. I highly recommend him.

For the past six years, I have played guitar and bass for the band Drop Electric and have played an array of styles. Music should be a part of everyone's life, and it is never too late to learn! Guitar and bass lessons are offered.

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.
