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 loved the musical teacher she was such a sweetheart it was amazing. Although I would say that it's kinda pricey for singing lessons but oh well that's what happens when you decide to take them.

My experience has far exceeded my expectations. I've been taking guitar lessons here for over a year and I could not be happier. Robert is a true professional. His lesson plan is well thought out and I feel like he tailored it just for me. He has an incredible knack of knowing what I can achieve week to week. He is a patient and knowledgeable teacher and truly a master of the instrument in any genre. For me, he has demystified making music. I can't believe the progress I have made. If you want a safe, clean environment to really learn and play music, I highly recommend Gallagher's Music.

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...

Devin is not only a great sound engineer, but a cool guy to record with. He makes the whole process super easy for the musician. He is very professional with setting up mics and he knows how to get the best sound, whether it be with guitars, drums or vocals. The other thing about Devin is that because he plays the instruments, and he's a singer, and he's been in many bands, etc., he's very knowledgable about music, arranging it and adding certain instrumentations and ideas to the music that I never even thought of as the songwriter! It has been a pleasure to see Devin grow, not only as a sound engineer, but also as a musician. I highly recommend Devin Davis Music for all your recording needs.

Miss Amber is very professional, very nice and very patient. She started to teach my daughter two years ago. My daughter has won one regional champion trophy. But most important, Miss Amber knows how to spark and keep my daughter's interest of learning piano always high!

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 husband had been wanting to take lessons and we tried a few teachers until we chanced on Mike. Mike responded to our initial email immediately and we started our lessons. We are now a few months in, and have a long term relationship. He is punctual as well as flexible, something that makes him invaluable. My husband has progressed at a great pace and he loves the instruction he gets from Mike. We look forward to years of learning with Mike

My 12-year-old daughter had been wanting a guitar for a while, so I got her one for her birthday. After a couple days of watching online videos about how to play, she seemed to lose interest. I guess it was too complicated, or boring, for her. I decided to try to find her a teacher, which is how Brian became my daughter’s guitar teacher. This has turned out to be the best decision. Brian’s teaching techniques are excellent. He knew right away how to keep my daughter interested in playing, without her getting bored. From the very beginning he started teaching her to play her favorite song. That made a big difference in my daughter’s motivation to practice. To my great surprise, she started to practice on her own at least one hour every day. Brian integrates guitar playing techniques (which can get boring) with playing songs, both at the same time. I think this is an excellent approach, especially for kids. My daughter now looks forward to every lesson. Communication with Brian is wonderful: he is never late, and if something does come up, he always notifies me well in advance. Lessons normally last 30 minutes, but if Brian sees that my daughter needs a little more time, he always stays longer to make sure that she understood everything in the lesson for that day.

    Firstly, I am incredibly good at sight reading - it is a stereotype that guitarist are poor readers of music! I am also deeply interested and knowledgeable in many kinds of music. I like exploring the connections between genres - like jazz, rock, and classical - in my playing and in my compositions. I offer that openness to all my students, and often burn CDs for them to expose them to new kinds of music.

      I've been playing on and off for about 6-8 year now. I was in the army during that time and funny enough the only time I found time to truly play was while in Iraq. I cannot read music but tabs so I am sure I have bad habits as I am self taught. I'd like to work on rhythm and singing at the same time because that is where I struggle.
