Excellent!! Highly recommended! My 2 boys have been taking guitar lessons with Dr. Taylor for 2 years, and it has been a great experience. Dr. Taylor relates very well with the kids - he is funny, kind and extremely patient. He puts the kids at ease with a gentle attitude that creates a learning atmosphere of open, honest communication. Dr. Taylor is very perceptive in his evaluation of the struggles and progress each student is experiencing. He takes a keen, personal interest in each student. It has been a pleasure, for both the kids and myself, interacting with Dr. Taylor and I especially appreciate his flexibility, understanding and his easy-going nature. I am very grateful that my boys have him as their instructor.

As someone with zero experience and expectations that would come with singing lessons, I was pleasantly surprised with my lessons with Dr. T. I was at a point where I knew I would like to learn but had no idea where to begin. Dr. T helped me with that by explaining things on a level that I (again, someone with minimal music background) could understand. I found some footing and felt motivated to practice. Shortly after, I felt a noticeable difference in technique, and continue to use it today. I had to stop due to my school and workload, despite Dr. T's flexible hours, I felt unable to manage everything. As soon as I can find the time, I will definitely resume lessons.

I am a band teacher in the Grandville area: Dr. T has given individual and small group lessons to my band students, teaches all instruments from saxophone to guitar to trumpet. In addition to his unmatched qualifications and experience, Dr. Taylor teaches students HOW to practice, how to problem-solve, how to better themselves. Dr. T is knowledgeable, professional, and builds great rapport with his students. I highly recommend Dr. Taylor for your music lessons whether you are young or old, experienced or just getting started.

Will was great! Flexible, accommodating... he drove up to Grand Rapids for our wedding. He worked with us on a playlist and killed it during our cocktail hour after playing ceremony music. He even acted as our DJ after dinner to manage our playlist and was friendly and great with the guests. Highly recommend him for your event!

I am an older adult guitar player that wanted to learn some new skills and learn guitar theory. Steve had instructed my son years back and I knew he was the only one that would listen to my needs and also had a music degree to back up his playing skills.He has a very down to earth approach and is so calm and patient. He never is intimidating which is important to someone like myself that was always told "Girls don't play electric guitar." I recommend Steve all the time when asked if I know a good guitar teacher. There are plenty of guitar teachers but many of them are not trained musicians but off the street guitar players.

Almost 2 yrs ago my little one decided he wanted to play the guitar. He started going with Steve because he was right around the corner. From the moment Diego had his first class I saw the connection he had with Steve. Its just awesome to sit and watch how they work and learn together. A year ago we moved out of town and I now drive 45 min to and from Grand Rapids once a week for Diego's classes. I have to say every penny is worth for the improvement Diego has made since day one!

Steve is doing a great job teaching my son electric guitar. He's started with the basics, using music my son likes and has a lot of patience and praise while instructing. I'm very happy we chose Steve.

I have been taking lessons for several years from Joe. I'm learning both mandolin and violin and more than that music theory. These are third and fourth instruments for me but the first stringed instruments ever. I am an adult learner and have found that Joe has answers for simple questions and more complex ideas in the learning process. Oh, and did I mention patience!

We have been doing beginner guitar and violin lessons for 2 girls for about a year. Joe is extremely patient and kind, and very knowlegeable about stringed instruments! He's also flexible with very busy schedules, which we really appreciate.

I teach highly personalized drum/percussion, bass and guitar lessons at Southtown Guitar. I have a B.A. in Music from Trevecca Nazarene University, with a concentration in drums and percussion. I have over 15 years of musical performance experience in Nashville, TN and the Greater Michigan area. To me, it is absolutely crucial to create an open, accepting and fun environment for teaching lessons. I personalize every lesson to the learning style and personality of the student. Having taken lessons for 10 years myself, I've learned that investing in a fun and positive environment is imperative in helping motivate the students to accomplish their goals!

About

I teach beginners piano lessons privately in my home. My teaching schedule offers flexible times during Monday, Tuesday and Friday, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. Students will work in three or four different skill books. These skills are theory, technique, piano, and sight-reading will be added after students grow musically to that level. The method of teaching students is through The Bastien Series of piano, piano for the young beginner, The Primer Series and piano for adult beginners. Students ages 16 and can start in the older beginner's series. Learning beginner's piano is a rewarding experience and will enhance self-esteem, confidence and self-control. Students will also be able to show their skills during a future performance.
