I recently started taking guitar lessons with Josh and it's been a great experience. He is flexible with both your learning style and schedule. In the past I have had difficulty finding a good teacher, but I would recommend Josh to anyone, and he's inspired me to start piano as well. Thanks!

We gave my Dad Jazz guitar lessons for Christmas. He is an experienced amateur guitar player who is 51 yr old and wants to take his playing to the next level. He is an engineer that needs to feed his creative side. He said it was the best gift ever! Thanks for all of your help!

My 5 year old started piano lessons with Tom a few months ago and I'm very pleased with her progress and his patience! He's accommodating to our schedule and a great teacher. He explains things well in a way she understands and did I mention he is patient?!?!? I'd definitely recommend him as a piano teacher, and we're hoping in a few years, my daughter will learn how to play the guitar with him too.

I started taking guitar lessons with John and have been extremely satisfied with his services thus far. He teaches in such a way that is allowing me to quickly progress. Only comments for 4 stars is that the studio is currently based out of his house and could be a little cleaner, and for my first lesson he greeted me at the door with bare feet... just made for a slightly odd first impression. I am very impressed with his services and continue to go to him for lessons... he wears slippers or shoes now...

I've had a wonderful experience starting my guitar journey with Joe this past year and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone interested in learning to play the guitar. He not only teaches the practical aspects of guitar playing but also focuses on music theory, with the intent of making you a well-rounded musician. Joe is also willing to tie the lessons in with your own musical tastes by letting you work on songs of your own choosing, which makes practicing fun and engaging. Joe's love of guitar shines through in every lesson and his cheerful demeanor and encouraging words will make you love it too!

My son had never had drum lessons before so he was pretty bad at first. We can definitely tell the difference over the past 2 months when he is down stairs practicing. Scott is very patient and my son really enjoys his lessons.

John was very helpful in teaching me the proper technique and foundation's of playing guitar. He broke down the basics and instructed on how I could practice on my own and improve my technique. I would be happy to recommend John to anyone interested in learning a musical instrument.

Our daughter loves the guitar again thanks to Alexander! He has a great teaching style. We used to push her to practice before, but now she picks up the guitar on her own and can't wait for her next lesson because of her instructor. Glad we found him!

About

Ken began playing the guitar about 25 years ago. He has found himself in just about every musical situation conceivable. He maintains a busy schedule of teaching, recording and live dates. He performs and composes with his jazz/fusion trio, Slice of Pi, which is currently recording a follow-up to their debut CD. He also performs with rock group Merge. Over the years, Ken has performed with a wide range of artists and bands. He has also been involved in studio recording projects and commercial music and has written guitar method books, addressing improvisation and theory for the guitar. Ken frequently hosts clinics, demonstrating technique and theory. He studied jazz and classical guitar at Wayne State University and theory and composition at Oakland University. Ken studied under acclaimed guitar legends Joe Fava and Paul Abler. Currently, Ken teaches theory and guitar instruction privately. Some of his many influences include jazz, fusion, rock, funk, classical, progressive, and world music. Several notable musicians were key in Ken's development such as John Coltrane, J.S. Bach, Shawn Lane, Frank Zappa, Joe Satriani, Jimi Hendrix, Eddie Van Halen, and Miles Davis. Ken is a reputable guitar instructor, college educated, and professional musician. He has made teaching and performing music not only as a passion, but also as a career.

About

I provide lessons for students that range from beginner to advanced levels. I travel to you, as long as you own the instrument you are planning to study. I can assist students in reading, understanding theory, and even writing their own musical scores! Every lesson is personalized for that particular student and, if desired, can be geared in any direction they so choose --recording, theory, song choice, electronic additions, producing, etc. I am very open to adjusting my lesson plan to fit your personal style. As for myself, I have been playing piano and guitar for the longest, but I consider myself a drummer at heart. I have played with many live acts, released a number of recorded albums (some solo and some with groups), and most recently, I've been playing with the touring act, Stikyfut, as their drummer/backup vocalist. Music has taught me so much. It has led me to many adventures, introduced me to so many interesting people, and caused me to think introspectively about my life and the world that I can hand over to future generations. Hopefully, through providing lessons to students now, I can pass along the same love and excitement I have for music to these kids. My rates are $25/half hour lesson and $45/hour lesson.
