Nic has been giving father/daughter guitar lessons to my 14 year old and I for about 3 months. Nic is a great instructor and does a great job of keeping us both engaged and interested. I highly recommend Nic Payne!
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 am in my late fifties and bought my first guitar in May of '08, never having played guitar. Self-taught, in ten months I learned fifteen chords, all below the fifth fret, and none of them barred. My dream was to learn rock guitar, something I had always wanted to do. Because of my age, I knew I was time-limited, and wanted to focus only on the songs I knew from my early years. By happen-stance I found Mr. O'Malley, and this week will have completed one full year of study with him. My lessons are one hour sessions weekly. It has been nothing short of an inspiring experience, and if I would compare it to anything, it would be like having someone teach the illiterate to read or the deaf to hear. I can now play barred chords without difficulty, up and down the neck. I have learned strum patterns, and how to read notes for these patterns. We do power chords as well. I can now read tab without difficulty. Bends, slides, hammer-ons, pull-offs, chord progressions, E and A Major pentatonics, and more, are part of every lesson. I am now learning how to solo. He has taught me how to set up my guitar, set up pedals, amplifiers, and which effects to use for which songs. My playlist includes AC/DC (many), Led Zep, Pink Floyd, RHCP, Nickelback, Boston, Clapton, Eagles, Black Sabbath, and Alice in Chains, just to name a few. Currently I am learning some killer blues licks. Six months ago I started bass, and have had 8 or so lessons on this. The bass has helped my guitar playing and vice-versa. I would rate my abilities as very, very average - but I can still cut through a lot of material. None of this would have been possible without Mr. O'Malley. My first lesson he asked ME what I would like to do with guitar. He is extremely patient, encouraging, and an all-around wonderful teacher, who inspires. He is a first-class guitarist. I look forward to my sessions with him. The hour goes way too fast. My goal for this year is to improve my tab reading and picking (without looking), improve my soloing, and to do Stairway. I play a PRS singlecut '06, and a Fender P Bass '62 RI (1968). I use fender amps and an Aguilar head for the bass. Rock On!! Thanks Mike!! Jim
Josh does a great job teaching young adults and kids guitar lessons, and brings a passionate appreciation for all types of music to the lessons. Whether just beginning, or looking to improve your skills, Josh can help anyone improve their talents and broaden their musical horizon. Definitely would recommend Josh as a guitar instructor.
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.
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?
Mark is a very open and kind instructor. He made my son feel welcome and kept the lesson fun.
Over all Dave is a great teacher. So if you are looking to do guitar lessons at the Guitar Shop I recommend Dave
Mark helped our grandson with pre-algebra and was very nurturing and patient while teaching concepts. Nick really enjoyed his sessions with Mark and gained so much confidence. I believe the skills talked about carried thru in his other subjects as well. Mark is excellent!!
I took bass lessons from Kameron when he lived in Philadelphia and cannot say enough good things about him. He taught me how to read music, was always prepared with a lesson and gave me great material to work on at home. Kameron is a seriously talented bassist and musician and can take your playing anywhere you want it to go. I ended up playing bass in a local cover band and I highly doubt I would have gotten there without him! It was a TRAGIC day when Kameron left Philly. Let our loss be your gain....
Mike is supportive and professional. He has introduced my daughter to many different types of piano music and helped her continue to love music by teaching to her strengths and not putting unnecessary pressure on her.
Jonathan is an excellent musician/performer and an excellent music instructor. He designs my guitar lessons to fits my needs as a K-5 elementary music specialist in the public schools. He is patient and kind while maintaining high expectations. I would recommend Jonathan Ehresmann to anyone looking for a high quality music lesson experience.
I love Ryan already! Can't wait to continue lessons!
Juan is a fantastic music teacher! He takes the time needed to help a person at any skill level to grow and improve. Lessons are always fun and the time just flies by. When he demonstrates a particular song it is evident he is a skilled musician as well. I highly recommend him.
I am 50+ guy who is an advanced beginner or early intermediate and have had many "beginner" guitar instructors. I was very pleasantly impressed with Loba and very highly recommend him. He teaches many styles of music but perhaps most importantly he shares with you how to play, to feel the music and express the feeling the music has for you - so you are not only learning a new piece but you are owning it personally through Loba's encouragement and guidance. You take guitar lessons with Loba not from him - it is a shared experience. As person, he is friendly, polite, patient and sensitive; and will share his many experiences with music and people - an education alone. This is a very positive referral, and should be, Loba has earned it and will continue to, hopefully for you!
As an adult returning to piano, I wanted a teacher who was understanding of my hectic schedule. I had memories of my old piano teacher being very rigid, which made me loathe practicing and playing. This has never been the case with Abe. He is great at seeing each student where they are and challenging them accordingly. He has a wonderful sense of humor and knows how to make his students feel comfortable. I practice more than I ever did before because I love it. The world of classical music is beautiful and enormous, and Im excited to start studying.
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music Performance specializing in Guitar and actively perform in and around the Twin Cities. This gives me a unique perspective on what a student should spend their time on to most effectively prepare themselves to be a functional musician.
I teach piano lessons. I teach people how to play the piano, the theory behind music, and the different techniques needed to be successful.
I have been a guitar and bass teacher at School of Rock Eden Prairie for the past 5.5 years. I have over 30 years of experience on guitar and 20 years of experience on bass guitar. I excel with absolute beginners and intermediate students.
If you want to learn how to play the guitar, I can teach you. I love to teach persons how to play the guitar with my experience. I found different, easy ways to learn fast and easy but with quality.
