I just started taking guitar lessons - I've taken just two lessons to be exact. I was a little worried when I decided to look for an instructor because I am 60 years old and am mostly interested in learning to play contemporary worship music. Alex Born was a great match. He is a church musician and seems to be very experienced in the type of music I want to learn. The other thing I appreciate is that rather than give you music that he wants you to learn, he has you bring music that you want to learn and he helps you learn to play it. I enjoy his friendly, casual style of lessons and I expect I will be a student of his for quite some time.

I'm not from the area, but while I was in town, I was able to take a few guitar lessons with Alex. He asked about my goals and tried to customize my lessons. He's a good teacher. The location is great too. I like that Alex teaches out of a space, in a church. Also, he provided excellent customer service and refunded my paid for sessions, after I became sick with Shingles and had to cut my lesson taking time short. He's patient and has a good attitude. I imagine he is a great teacher for kids too. If I had any kids interested in guitar, and was from the area, I'd sign them up for guitar lessons with Alex.

My experience with has been very positive. Alex was prompt with his replies to my questions as I was searching for the guitar lesson that was right for me. I am having fun at the guitar lessons and am learning what I want at the pace that works for me.

I feel very fortunate to have found Bruce for guitar lessons for my daughter.  I had other guitar teachers before but none of them were of the quality of Bruce.  He has a well grounded lesson plan and is teaching my daughter how to properly play a guitar vs. just teaching her to play notes or chords on a page. He is very personable and professional and knows how to convey ways to improve without sounding critical.  He welcomes questions and is willing to vary the routine (adding in holiday songs or a song my daughter really wants to learn) to keep things interesting.  He is even taking the time to adjust a more complicated song my daughter wants to play to her skill level.  My daughter loves to play the guitar and I have no doubt her interest is being maintained by her lessons with Bruce.

Bruce has been an excellent instructor throughout my first year of guitar lessons. He continues to impress me in presenting new ways to learn as well as in regards to being patient in re-instructing a technique or guitar nuance, when I may have forgotten or overlooked something I was previously shown. I would gladly recommend him to any student (adult or otherwise) with the interest in learning guitar.

I have been taking guitar lessons from Mike for ten years and I was at absolute zero when I began. He is a fantastic instructor, very knowledgeable about music and theory, and I've never needed another guitar instructor. I'm very happy with my playing ability and even after all this time, a marriage, kids, a house, and a bit less opportunity to practice than when I started, Mike's lessons are still interesting and I'm always learning. I would highly recommend guitar lessons from Mike regardless of your style, age, or current playing ability.

Coming from a 5 year orchestral background, I thought there was little guitar lessons would have to offer me, but I was quickly proven wrong when I started taking lessons from Mike. The amount of depth I had left untouched was astonishing to discover as we started with scales ranging from blues to classic, chord structure and how they were interchangable, and later applying my newfound knowledge to songs from artists like Clapton, Stevie Ray, Chili Peppers and many more. My only regret is not having started lessons sooner.

I have a great time with Mike during my lessons. His knowledge of guitar and music history is awesome. I look forward to every lesson.

I just finished watching my granddaughters piano lesson with Christian and was very impressed with Christian's patience, and his loving way with my very shy six year old granddaughter. My granddaughter has learned so much in such a short time from Christian Murphy. As an educator, I can highly recommend Christian as an outstanding teacher and a gift to the music world! I am so happy he has opened up the "Hollywood Rock School ! "

I am glad my kids had the opportunity to learn from Christian. He was patient and knowledgeable and worked at a pace that was perfect. It is obvious that music is a passion for Christian...his enthusiasm for teaching children music is a rare find! You won't be disappointed when you sign your kids up for lessons at this studio!

My 7 yr old son and I have been learning from Jeff for 4 months now. I can definitely say he is very good at what he does and is also very patient with beginners like us ( 40 year old & the other 7:) He has been playing for over 20 years and so knows his stuff. He is constantly trying to find ways to help us understand and learn things more easily. I have a traveling job and have had to reschedule a few times and he has always accommodated that. I strongly recommend Jeff for lessons, no matter what you sort of guitar lessons you are looking for.

Exceptional job outlining chord shapes in a streamlined fashion and listened to my concerns and questions. Helped me to get better at basic and more advanced strumming patterns. I've been to numerous instructors and Jeff is by far the most patient, accommodating, and knowledgeable instructor. Please seek him if you are learning for the first time or need to further your guitar playing, music history, and theory.

Jeff is very accommodating to both my screwy schedule and unfocused learning style, helping me to put the pieces of the guitar puzzle together in spite of myself.

Colton came to our house to teach our 12 yo son and 14yo daughter to play guitar. Each lesson is tailored to the child and his/her capabilities. Colton is humble, able, and both of the kids enjoyed working with him. I like his style of giving a free lesson to see if he's a fit. And, he drove to our house. How can you lose?

Sharon is an outstanding teacher. I take my two grandchildren to her for piano lessons and they love to go. They learn differently and Sharon teaches them the way they learn best and picks music that they enjoy as well as being challenging. When one has to miss a lesson the other always wants to have that time tacked onto her lesson . I could not be more pleased.

My twelve-year-old daughter has been taking flute lessons from Andrew for 1.5 years. He's an excellent teacher and enhances lessons with engaging information about musical theory and history. In addition, Andrew is the one music teacher in all the years of my multiple kids taking lessons on various instruments who has included in his curriculum actually teaching HOW to practice, backed up with the latest research on brain development and practical experience from his own performing history and classroom teaching. Andrew is very approachable so that the student is freer to play at his/her best rather than being so nervous or feeling judged. Andrew is skillful at giving feedback in a way that is both honest and encouraging. I strongly recommend him.

Andy B.

Verified review

Andrew is an excellent music teacher. He is able to find the best teaching method for the individual student, allowing the student to learn and excel. It was extremely fun and enjoyable to learn guitar from Andrew. My son and I were able to play modern songs on top of the classical songs we learned, which helped with insuring we stayed on top of practicing outside of class. I would highly recommend Andrew to anyone wanting to learn guitar or trombone or any of the other countless instruments that Andrew knows how to play.

My son began taking trombone lessons from Andrew in 5th grade. This is his 5 year of lessons. My son looks forward to the lessons, and his ability continues to grow. Andrew developed a quick rapport with my son, and is able to work through difficult techniques and overall improve my son's performance with different exercises. Andrew is very knowlegable, enthusiastic and supportive. We plan on continuing to use Andrew as long as we have a trombone player!

Our family has taken music lessons Mike Salow for over four years now. My one son plays guitar and drums an the other son plays bass. Mike is an excellent teacher in all of these instruments. He is patient and upbeat with my boys, professional, courteous, prompt and very reliable. He has won numerous awards for his guitar playing and is very versatile. Mike can start with classic rock, drop back to jazz, change to classical, and end up in an insane death metal shred without missing a beat....in guitar, bass and drums. It's crazy. We tried a couple of other in-home music teachers and none of them came close technically or had the ability to relate to and teach kids/young people. My boys went to the McPhail Center for Music and even their instructor and program was far inferior. Mike is a patient teacher that finds what motivates his students. He has an honest and kind way of relating that has kept my kids tuned in and motivated. Mike is the whole package musically, a great teacher and a wonderful person to contract services with. My whole family feels lucky to have found him. This guy is the bomb! You just can't get any better.

My kids have been taking guitar, bass, and drum lessons with Mike for several years. We live in Minneapolis part-time so the kids have lessons both in person, when we are in town, and online when we are out of town. Mike is excellent in both forums. My kids spend all week looking forward to their lessons with Mike. I never have to ask them to practice; the homework Mike assigns is apparently so much fun, they race to their instruments every day and walk around the house with their guitars. As a parent, my favorite thing about Mike is how thoughtful and flexible he is. My kids are very different from one another and do not conform to any standard music curriculum. In other words, they require quite a bit of extra work on a music teacher's behalf. This has never troubled Mike. He provides each of my kids with customized music lessons that work for each child! Including a variety of music theory that is way beyond anything I studied in my many years of piano and theory lessons. We feel incredibly lucky to have Mike in our kids' lives.

I've been taking guitar lessons with Jack Klatt at Blackbird Music. Not only is he a great musician, he's a great teacher. Very patient and willing to tailor the lesson so that I'm getting the most out of it. As an adult picking up an instrument after a long break, he's got me back in the swing and improving immediately.
