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!
I like the atmosphere at Harris Conservatory; it's casual, but professional. As an adult student, I pass teens and children and parents when going to/ coming from lessons. My instructor is a skilled musician. And I live in Plymouth, so it's all walking distance. Definitely a place you should check out for lessons!
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!
Taught me the basics of guitar playing and helped me work up to Van Halen. Love ya Deakster!
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.
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!
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.
Mark is teaching my son to play guitar. He is patient with him and very open and flexible when scheduling issues arise. I would recommend him to anyone who asked.
Jay has been a wonderful help noticing my strengths and helping me refine them. He challenges me and guides me to meeting those goals. Great guy!
I'm glad I chose Tyler Aukerman for my guitar teacher. He is a clear teacher, very knowledgeable about guitar and music theory, attentive to his students needs, while also organized and timely. I had another teacher in the past but he had no professional training and as a result was a very poor teacher. I've never had this issue with Tyler. I'd recommend him to anyone parent looking for a teacher for their kid or adult looking to take lessons.
Keith is a very patient & wonderful teacher. He works at your pace to ensure that you are progressing and understand the basics. I have greatly benefited from his lessons and will continue to do so.

Ken studied under acclaimed guitar legends Joe Fava and Paul Abler. Currently, Ken teaches theory and guitar instruction privately.
