I am currently taking lessons with Austin and it's going very well! He is always on time and very polite. I have no prior experience playing the guitar and he is very patient with me even when it takes me 5 minutes to figure out how to put my fingers. I would highly recommend Pathway Music for guitar lessons!
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.
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.
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
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!!
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.
Hello! As an adult beginner seeking to learn the guitar, I can tell you several things I've discovered through experience. Things I can state with complete confidence. 1) Learning to play guitar can become overwhelming rather quickly! With all the information available on line, through books and from friends who say they can show you, it's quite easy to waste a lot of time learning stuff that really isn't productive over the long haul. Sure, you'll learn quickly at first because you're starting from zero, but once you learn the fundamentals, now what? This is where the majority of guitarists languish for years rehashing the same old stuff and never really improving. You need competent guidance! 2) Speaking of competent guidance, I've had numerous teachers who were really good guitar players but after a couple of months watching them play, you begin to wonder why YOU aren't getting much better. They're good, you're not and you're not getting much better. You're wasting precious learning time. Playing and teaching are 2 separate issues. Being able to relay information is probably more important than the ability to play when looking for a teacher. Phil can not only play but excels at explaining music concepts so they are readily accessible to students seeking knowledge. He was the first instructor I was exposed to who had a prepared, written game plan. A step by step road map to mastering the instrument that he explains patiently and intelligently. He loves both playing and teaching the guitar and it is abundantly clear when you talk to him about the subject. I have yet to have a session with him where I didn't feel that I was better after our lesson than I was before it, and that is the main reason one seeks out an instructor. So they can get better! 3) Phil treats lessons like a professional. He's never been late or surprised by my visits. He is always prepared and that's one of the things I like best. He makes me feel like I'm his only student and that MY progress is what's most important. I'm not just a time slot to fill or a check to grab and cash. No ego or showing off his skills for large chunks of the lesson. My skills and my improvement is what matters most and my entire lesson, from start to finish, is devoted to that. 4) Music theory is a bit spooky, especially for the beginning student. The problem isn't the complexity of the subject but how it's explained and mapped out. Yes it can be complex but in order to truly understand the instrument, you must understand the underlying concepts of music theory. What I liked most about my initial interview with Phil was his interest in what I was looking to accomplish. I was questioned about my goals. What did I want to accomplish. Learn music theory? Learn to read notation? Learn to just sit on the couch and play the blues or rock or pop music? A combination of some of it or all of it? He had a path for any/all of it tailored to my wants and needs. I'm thrilled with the path I chose and my progress on that path but I'm reminded by Phil that the plan can change as I grow and learn which is as it should be. Flexibility in learning means more options which also means constant learning without stagnation or hitting a wall that equates to more wasted time. If you seek professional, intelligent and skillful instruction as it relates to the guitar, I urge you to seek out Phil and discuss your musical goals with him. He has helped me both understand music as well as the instrument. It's quite a thrill to honestly believe you are improving quickly at playing the guitar. I look forward to continuing to improve with Phil's guidance and honestly feel my goals are well within reach. Both my playing as well as my understanding of music is growing daily and I eagerly anticipate what the future holds for me and my guitar journey with Phil's assistance!

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!
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.
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.
