Alex has really provided a great learning experience for my son who takes guitar lessons from him. Unlike many music teachers that determine the music their students will learn, Alex really makes sure the students are involved in picking their music so the student stay interested and wants to learn and practice the music. I highly recommend Alex as a guitar teacher.
Christian has given me so much when it comes to my understanding music and expressing myself with piano and guitar. I encourage anyone interested in learning from an incredible teacher, both professional and with years of experience in the industry, to look no further than Christian and The Hollywood Rock School!
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.
This was so much easier than I ever expected. A2 had a teacher at my doorstep within a week to start teaching my son guitar. Great teacher too, all in all I can't complain!
Ella is 14 a 14 yr old young lady who looks forward to going to her guitar lessons with Ric, she has never picked up a guitar before this. This is her 3rd lesson, but she has become more confident in who she is already. Even at school in her normal day she seems to have opened up more and not so shy. Ric is an amazing teacher, soft spoken, cheering her on, and is fun. Ella's words: Ric says "If i make a mistake i shouldn't stop and look back i need to just keep going forward" so that's what i keep doing until i get it right. Thank you Ric!! Rae, Mark and Ella Hansen
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!
Pat Shelby, Guitar Teacher January 18, 2015 Do you dream of playing the guitar or improving your skills? Please allow me tell you about my experience taking guitar lessons from Pat Shelby. Pat is personable, approachable, and creates such a fun, safe, energetic, yet focused atmosphere, that it is simply a pleasure to practice, try new skills, and look forward to the next step of proficiency. He is a professional musician with awards, CDs and years and years of experience not only with acoustic guitar, which is what Im learning, but with bass and electric, as well. He assessed my level, then personalized my lessons to help me achieve my goals, offered up music theory that I could understand, and patiently worked with a learning disability that I have. He used technology to enrich the experience, providing chord charts printed out specific to my songs, arranging guitar music to suit my vocal range so I could sing with it. He sent follow-up lesson notes to me via e-mail, and tracked my progress to keep me moving forward. He also sent Youtube links with lessons targeted to my current skills. I enjoy every lesson with Pat, and also enjoy seeing and hearing his other students at recitals where the students, ranging in age from 6 or 7 years old to retired, perform everything from folk to rock to blues to classical music with the guidance and encouragement of this gifted teacher. Add in flexible scheduling and reasonably-priced lessons, and you may find that your dream of playing or improving at the guitar is about to come true.
Over all Dave is a great teacher. So if you are looking to do guitar lessons at the Guitar Shop I recommend Dave
My girls really enjoy their piano and voice lessons with Alta. She is always on time, pleasant and prepared. She is also flexible in meeting the changing needs of my daughters. I highly recommend her as an instructor.
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....
This is best music opportunity for children interested in rock and roll. Our kids have been at the School of Rock for over 4 years and the rewards to them have been many. They have received excellent instruction in guitar, drums, bass, vocals, and on-stage performance and as well as attended many of the free workshops and fun get-togethers the school organizes. Most valuable however, is the weekly experience collaborating with the other students in band rehearsals. They truly feel like they're part of a rock band and need no other incentive than this to practice each day. The instructors and show directors have high expectations of all students. Students who work hard are offered additional opportunities to participate and improve. As for Stacey herself, we truly believe that it is her open, positive attitude that has created such a supportive, successful environment for the students, parents and staff.
Jared teaches our daughter both cello and ukulele. He has also given my husband some guitar lessons. He is professional, genuine, and works flexibly with our schedule. He works hard to help our daughter do her best in a way that resonates with her. She enjoys her lessons with Jared and has really progressed in her musicianship with him as her teacher.
Mr. Williams was very patient with my daughter and very detailed with his explanation of understanding how the instrument (Guitar) works and why it is nessesscary to practice. He is doing a great job with her and I have recommended him to all my friends!
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!
My son wanted to take bass lessons and after a quick google search I found Mr. Gilmore's website. His rates are reasonable and his resume is solid. My son really loves his patient teaching style and is quickly taking to the basics of both playing and music theory. I would highly recommend Hugh to anyone looking for a professional, patient and knowledgable teacher.
Brian taught my son to play guitar and did an excellent job. His methods were very effective, he is patient and easy to work with. I highly recommend him!
Andrew is a very patient instructor and is very polite.only had a couple lessons but learning a lot.
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.
I can teach how to play acoustic guitar including chords, strumming and singing along while you play. I am self-taught and I have fronted for The Chad Edwards band. I believe in learning how to navigate through the basic chords efficiently and then learning how to play your favorite songs. There are many great websites that help show you chord progression, which I will show you how to find and translate into playing all your favorite songs.
Equal if not better lessons for a low price that you wont find anywhere else.
